How the Left Is Destroying Chicago With Steve Moore
"With us right now is a great American. I've known him for quite some time. Steve Moore, Steve, welcome to the program. Hey Charlie, thanks so much for having me. Great to be with you. And you are a great American. So it's a pleasure to be on your show. Thank you. We've known each other for a while and both from Chicago and unfortunately that whole state has been largely destroyed. So you have this great you see that Ken Griffin moved out of Chicago. There's a great article about him. I know this isn't the subject of our conversation, but it's really important. It showed that he is given hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars to the museums, the orchestra, to food banks. He's one of the most philanthropic guys and he's, I don't think anybody in the history of Illinois has given more to the civic institutions of Chicago and he finally had to leave because of the high taxes and the high crime rate in the city of Chicago. And it just shows what happens when liberals ruin a place because all these institutions like how are we going to replace Ken Griffin's money? That's a good question. Maybe you shouldn't have chased him out of the state. And it was you're exactly right. So ran a company called Citadel and started it right there in downtown Chicago, enormously successful. You could point to so many of the beauty of Chicago because of his generosity and philanthropy. And you actually look at why he left in the report, there were three Citadel employees that were mugged on the way to work, Steve. I mean, you and I grew up in Chicago. I mean, this is river north. This is not, you know, near comiskey or U.S. cellular, right? This is the heart of Chicago where people are being mugged at 8 or 9 in the morning or at 5 or 6 at night. Actually, I know you're not here to talk about it but Steve, it's really quick on the Chicago thing. I mean, it's just tragic Boeing is now left. Caterpillars. Caterpillars gone Citadel is gone. And you're right. And they actually had to shut down for several weeks the theater district in Chicago because it wasn't safe for people to go to theater. My point is that, you know, and this is happening now in New York City. It's happening in San Francisco. It's happening in Los Angeles. Los Angeles are great cities are being destroyed by wokeism and this big government
Is It Ethical to Purchase an EV Lithium Battery Powered Vehicle?
"And I believe this was post a climate depot which is a fantastic site This was written by Ronald Stein Is it ethical to purchase a lithium battery powered electric vehicle Listen you're going to learn something like I did I never knew this before With numerous state governors having issued executive orders to phase out the purchasing of gasoline driven cars within the next decade or so The automobile manufacturers efforts to phase into only manufacturing EVs or electrical vehicles Here's some food for thought about the lack of transparency about so called clean energy exploitations You ready There's virtually Well let me just put it to you They have an image that you can't see obviously The top image is an oil well where 100% organic material is pumped out of the ground taking up around 500 to a 1000 ft² Then it flows and pipeline safely transporting the oil to refineries to be manufactured into useful oil derivatives That are also the basis of more than 6000 products for society 6000 And into transportation fuels needed by the world's heavyweight and long-range infrastructures of aviation merchant ships cruise ships and militaries The lower image they show which again you can't see is just one lithium supply mine where entire mountains are eliminated Each mine usually consists of 35 to 40 humongous 7 9 7 caterpillar hall trucks along with hundreds of other large equipment Each 7 9 7 caterpillar hall you've seen on their massive Uses around half a million gallons gallons of diesel a year
Who's Telling the Truth About the Climate?
"It ethical to purchase a lithium battery powered EV electrical electric vehicle? So we get the lithium from mines. Shall we get all our metals? Yeah, that's how we get all our metals. A 100% organic material is pumped out of the ground. Taking up around 500 to a 1000 ft², then it flows in pipeline safely transporting the oil to refineries to be manufactured into usable oil derivatives. Talking about the oil. Now he's going to compare it to what it takes to make, for example, a lithium battery for a car. Each mine, this is a lithium supply mine. Each mine it usually consists of 35 to 40 humongous 7 9 7 caterpillar hall trucks. Along with hundreds of other large equipment. I'm sorry. Right. Are you saying what I don't know is true, but this one I know is true, right. Each 7 9 7 uses around half a million gallons of diesel a year. So with an inventory of just 35 the whole trucks alone are using 17 and a half million gallons of fuel a year for just one lithium site.
"caterpillar" Discussed on The Garden Question
"The 80s. To me, that seems like it's groundbreaking brand new information because it is to us gardeners. It isn't imagine geological community. My goal is to really pull this research together and put it all in one nice little neat package that gardeners can use to be better gardeners and better stores of the land, kind of a lofty goal. It stems solely from me being a giant nerd who loves to read these kinds of things and dig into this research. That's probably the main goal of why I tackled these two books. Yeah. Well, I'm glad you're doing and I'm glad that you're calling because it makes it easily digestible for people like me. Well, good. Then I can check that box off, which is nice. What would you like to know that nobody is researching or studying at this point? Oh, that's a good question. Okay, so they might be studying it and I just don't know it because they haven't published their study yet or maybe I didn't dig far enough to come up with their study yet, but I would like to know probably more about chemical messaging that plants do and which ones do it and in which way they do it because some of the research that I read is just jaw dropping. The exact composition of the volatile chemical that they will release, a cabbage plant is being eaten by a caterpillar and it releases a what's called a semiochemical, which is that volatile chemical I talked about is called an HIP V herbivore induced plant volatile. The plant gets eaten, it releases this message or chemical signal into the air, and the exact composition of that signal depends on which species of caterpillar is eating the cabbage. Is it a cabbage looper or a Diamondback moth or an imported cabbage worm and the composition of that is different. The reason it's different is because they want to attract the specific species of parasitic wasps that's going to use that specific species of caterpillar to raise their developing young..
"caterpillar" Discussed on Short Wave
"Listener. One of my favorite short lived episodes of all time. Many people I know took up a quarantine hobby, maybe they were knitting or learning a new language, and I was slightly less industrious with all of my new time. But not less fun. I got really into board games. Wingspan combines science and board games. It's full of all these cool bird facts. It's got caterpillar tokens and it's kind of my ideal night in. Since it's released in 2019, it sold almost a million copies, and it's even a video game now and it has a spin off burning field guide. So today, I'm sharing with you an episode on what started as little and deep board game with a big dream, and is now a huge avian success. Let's listen to this episode which originally aired in February of 2020 and see if you can discover your inner burter with me. Here's the show. You're listening to shortwave. From NPR. Hey everybody, matti safaa here with shortwave reporter Emily kwang. Hey Maddie, so last weekend I did something extremely nerdy on brand continue. Hi. Okay. Well, I organized a science themed board game day, so we're at crossroads tabletop tavern in manassas Virginia. My partner Duncan and two of our colleagues Emily Vaughn and Rebecca Ramirez gathered to play wingspan, which is a competitive bird collection game. And one to 5 players, a bird collection game, huh? A fiercely competitive bird collection game. We're going to play the less competitive version because I know who you all are. You don't want to end some friendships today. Remember the last time we played charades? I remember I won. Yeah, we're not going to talk about that. So in wingspan, you are a bird enthusiast. Trying to attract birds to your network of wildlife preserves. Makes sense. And the birds are represented through 170 illustrated cards. You'll have a painting of a bird in the middle, indigo bunting, barn owl. Sure. What have you. And the card will be packed with science backed bird data. I mean, here we go. That card has the birds diet, nest type, habitat, and you employ the scientific information in order to play the game, which is exactly what bird watcher Elizabeth hargrave had in mind when she made it. Very cool. Okay, and this game has been pretty popular, right? I mean, you don't already know that. You know I'm not into the board games? Okay, this will impress you. It won Germany's Kenner spiel dis yars. For expert game of the year award. Yeah, no, I know what that is. It's a big, yeah. I'll help you out. It's like a best picture Oscar. In the board gaming world. Okay. And wingspan it marks the first time.
Can the Republican Party Restrain the Tech Oligarchy? Blake Masters Tells Us
"Do you think that the Republican Party is there as far as the voters? Let's start there to restrain the corporate oligarchy, especially in the tech space. Yes. The voters are traveling a lot. I speak to a lot of voters. You speak a lot of voters talk about that. Well, I mean, I tell people like, look, I'm a pro market guy, like I have this sort of libertarian classic background. Like I was deep in the Austrian school in college, right? We're into this stuff. We don't want to regulate it. Yeah. I mean, I'm sympathetic. I think it's important to start. And some of it's really interesting. Some of this really interesting. A lot of it's sort of directionally right. And then I think it's the right place to start from and then you inch towards like looking at how is that actually working with prudence? And I tell people like when I invest in a startup, I want it to do well. I don't want to regulate businesses Willy nilly. I don't even mind if a company becomes big. If caterpillar, the tractor company wants to buy another tractor company for 50 billion in merged, like, great. As long as they're not going to Jack up the prices. That's great. But it's especially big tech. And these huge multinationals that control the flow of information. And I'm sorry, but when these companies have left wing politics, they're censoring sitting presidents. They're, I think, engaging in all sort of election interference. When they do that, we have to be able to treat them differently than like a local bakery or local hair salon. Yes. And that's still pearl market. It's precisely because you want markets to be free and open that you need to break some of these companies up. What markets are supposed to serve us? We don't serve market. That's right. Yeah, they're tools for human flourishing. They're not the end. And too much of the Republican Party, of course, is always just focused on GDP. Yeah. And we have to sacrifice ourselves so that we can hit some sort of number on a chart. Right. And the byproduct of that, just I mean, the text base it's so obvious is that you have tech companies that are worth more than ever before that are doing so much damage. And they're largely untouchable. They're basically governments tip of themselves. Step more powerful than most national
"caterpillar" Discussed on A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
"It and then figure out what to do with it. Oh and so. I just said undersides of the leaves in and i guess i meant like right by where the leaf is attached. Like the little sort of buds and twigs and so forth Yeah exactly yeah. They're on right because it was the only time i'd ever seen it was maybe Six weeks ago or something very few of them and so it's on the twigs and branches stems and branches. Okay right and what. What's to be done well. So magnolia scale If it's just a minor infestation. You're only seeing a few of them. You may be cut those little branches and twigs out. Just throw away If a lot of times people don't notice it until it's really covering the tree and at that point there has to be a chemical intervention from you know horticultural oil or there are some systemic pesticides. You could use a. That's going to vary what's legal from state to state so you would want to contact your local cooperative extension for specific pesticide and from right in the interesting thing about these. Scaling sexes get. Looks kind of like a little Bump underneath And but it then goes into a crawler stage doesn't it doesn't it kind of have a different. Does it start moving around or what happens next. Yeah it does. The life cycle of magnolia scales. Really cool. if you're into that sort of like creepy yeah kaz. Basically the the white part that people notice is actually a waxy covering that is over the adult scale and they build that so that they can hatch their babies which we call crawlers. And i say hatch loosely because magnolia scale exit actually produce live young and once the young are born day. Crawl out from under the waxy covering and start to move around. And they're the only part of the insect that actually moves so that's why we call them the crawlers. That's funny so and so that the other thing about treatment even with horticultural oil is timing. Is everything in. It works on one life as and not another and again. I'm not an expert in this. I read a little bit about it. But that's why it's so important to not just you know again. Ready shoot aim. You know with what you think you might have heard about the thing because it has to be timed properly as well doesn't it. Yes absolutely Once they're under that waxy covering Nothing is going to harm at insect underneath there. So you have to wait until the crawlers. Come out from underneath it okay. And that's true for almost any pester disease that the timing is nearly as important as the product that you you so you always want to clearly identify what problem that you have which disease which passed and then find a product that works on that pester disease and then really read the labels for timing to make sure that your sprang at the right time because if you're not you're wasting product you're putting chemicals into the environment that don't need to be there right and again even if it's oil it doesn't mean you should just do it indiscriminately or waste even if it's spoil. Yeah correct so dare i veer into the or world of caterpillar. You bust you have a gypsy moth year there now. I did not. I've never had them in the thirty five years. I've been at this property. I've never had an infestation. I see the adult moths You know sometimes. On when i look for moths at night i left to go moth thing and put out a black light cfl black light and put up a sheet and see what mall surround and so forth and so i i know i know they're here but not far from me. There were large Tracts of land that were heavily infested this year. And i don't know if you had that also From from Callers in the midwest and so forth so this year we did not see as much of an infestation. Last year was particularly bad year and The state of illinois has sprang richmond where they trap They put traps out all over. The state were part of that process and then they monitor how many mas catching the traps. Which indicates what populations are and if the populations are high in certain areas that l. into aerial springs russ So this is a for those of you. Who don't know the success that got introduced into the country in the eighteen sixties And it's a serious pest because it can eat leaves off a tree and completely defoliate a tree if populations are high enough which of course overtime work. Kill the tree so We have been fighting gypsy off for a long long time. Right and So earlier in the year people would have been seeing caterpillars and hearing you can actually hear them chewing if there's enough of them it's like a annoys ya. I mean the crunching exactly. Yeah and the caterpillars Usually hatch out in about It may Usually mid to early may and of course that's dependent on the weather. It's temperature thing it's not a date. They suddenly look at their calendar. And say oh. It's time to hatch What they need to do in order to turn into the adult moth is constantly until they're ready to pay Or turn into the adult moth once a moth. They're not a problem except that they're out there laying more eggs It's that caterpillar phase. That's really really damaging right. So i believe with these that even if the aerial spraying like you just sat. If if if the if you're government agency says hey we're to spray the timing. Is everything once again. And they go after the young caterpillars not when they've reached close to the end of their larval life as and And so people are calling now or people had them now and people call them and said what can i do. There are some things you can do in your sort of home environment your garden environment now looking for egg masses i think can't you to sort of reduce the population somewhat exactly so the egg masses you can look up They look like Strips of mud and they will lay their eggs on tree bark on on furniture on firewood on pretty much anything and they're pretty obvious so if you can go and if you find those could scrape them off there could be thousands of eggs in one of those masses and if you can scrape them off the tree and throw those away. You're going to prevent that many caterpillars from hatching right okay And you don't do this with your fingers folks. That's an important thing. I think we don't touch them. We use like a putty knife or something to scrape them and we put them in. Wet a bucket of warm water or soapy water or something soapy water and household bleach ammonia. Yeah the gypsy moth hairs. Which are part of all of their life. stages can actually cause an allergic reaction skin rash. See really want to be careful and workloads an ox leaves. Okay all right and use a tool to scrape them. So that is something that we can do. Monitoring and reducing. The potential jury localised infestation. Of course So that's so that if callers are calling now. You're not telling them that. There's anything i can do the caterpillars it's about these egg masses because the caterpillars are done their life phases time. That's correct. yeah. They became a. They became the moths all rail about midsummer. Yeah so there are other caterpillars like right. Now you know fall web worms are happening. And i think people especially if they were sort of. Shell shocked by gypsy moss. This year any caterpillar looks really something like something to be afraid of. But dot dot dot. Not the case. I mean some are native benign ineffectual. Good bird food right for their part of the ecosystem so.
Taking the Exquisite Risk': An Undefended Heart
"One of the metaphors for spiritual transformation that we hear a lot is that we're like a caterpillar in a cocoon and that the awakening comes as we feel the sense of the cocoon and realize it's time to Go beyond and then we into a butterfly and fly into freedom. And it's really actually very useful metaphor individually and as a species in the sense that you know we live in this familiar. Cocoon of our ego thoughts and behaviors and so on and they serve us the cocoon service earlier stages of development and then at the time comes to go beyond and if we don't the cocoon creates a pressure and we start getting more more squeeze because we're living in to small space for growing spirit and so that pressure is a reminder to take the chance and break open and it's damaging if we don't it's arrested development it's even more useful if you think of it in terms of as for these for these humans that we are. It's not a one shot that were continually waking up out of a cocoon of illusion cocoon of limiting beliefs. Cocoon of in some way behaviors. That are keeping us small that it's a continual ongoing process of coming into contact with a wider reality so it's like shedding skin and each round that we shed a skin we become more that vulnerability you know the new skins more porous than the old skin.

"caterpillar" Discussed on Power Bytes
"I appreciate it so as you said. There's more details to these definitions that our listeners could reference in the standard and we probably encourage them to do that. As you mentioned but do you see any significant deviations from the standard definitions in the industry usage absolutely so the standard itself is really a baseline is intended to be an agreement between the customers in the manufacturers really a baseline of how the products are going to be hilton designed but in the end many of the manufacturers have some slight deviations to allow for some capability to try and help market their products for example caterpillar has a standby rating where we allow for five hundred hours per year. Instead of what we would see from the iso standard which has a limitation of two hundred hours per year over time. We've seen other things that have come out. There were other manufacturers that came forward with increased load factor on their standby rating to allow up to eighty five percent load factor caterpillar. Several years ago responded to that with the ability to provide what we called the mission critical rating it has an eighty five percent load factor in five hundred hours per year. It's one of the lowest common that we're using today for a lot of things like data centers so overall it is important to work with the manufacturer to understand the stipulations that they have in the guidelines that they have for their specific ratings..
AJ Had a Fascination With 'Freaks' as a Kid
"I had a fascination with freaks as a kid. You know, Siamese twins and fat people and short people, people in the arms and legs. My father had these stories about all the freaks he saw at Coney Island. He was a kid, Coney Island, Brooklyn, on the boardwalk, they were freak shows. You play a nickel you walk in, you see the Siamese twins, you see the dog faced girl. Always create the guy who rolled cigarettes with his lips 'cause his hands and arms and legs were gone. Caterpillar man, crazy people. The world's tallest man married to the world's fattest woman, that kind of shit. So I'm ten years old or so, and I saw a book. There was a catalog back in my day. I just remembered this. It was a Cadillac called the JD Smith catalog. I've been a lot of you right now but holy shit I forgot about that. In the JD Smith catalog, where pictures of all these things you could order. And back then, things took 6 weeks to get to your fucking house. And your mother would pay for them by check, no credit card. You'd have to check the envelope in the mail with a stamp and wait. Couldn't call anybody one day it appeared three months later. Oh my God, I forgot this. It was magic kids. It was all this kind of disappear ink. This purple lengthy spray on people's shirts, and they want to kill it, and then it slowly goes away. Just stupid shit like that. And in that catalog, what this book about freaks, and it was called freaks. Inside the book, it finally got to the house. My mother, I'm not buying you this shit, ma. I gotta see this. Look at Johnny eck. Look at ching and ing, the Siamese twins connected at the head. There was Julia Pastrana, the dog faced woman. Grace mcdaniel the ugliest woman in the world. So many in that, so I love that book. For about 12 years old, I couldn't put it down for two years. I carried
The Democrats Are Now the Anti-Productivity, Pro-Poverty Party
"A couple clips from Thomas Souls? We open up the show today because the new model with the Dan Bongino show is going to be get ready for it. Kids close your ears. The new model with the Dan Bongino show going forward is gonna get your ass to work. That's it? Yep. Talked about it yesterday a little bit, and it's going to have a little kind of subtext to it. A subheading It's going to be and for those of you working your butts off. Thank you. You have my deepest respect. For those plumbers, truckers, electricians, carpenters. Janitors, architects, pilots, police officers, military men and women out there. All of you. Factory workers. Building cars, building medical equipment, building complicated machines building caterpillar equipment out there. God bless you. You have my deepest respect. This country is what it is produces what it produces and lives at a level of prosperity. Never seen before in human history. Precisely because of you. You did it. You built it. You worked. You got your fingernails dirty. You sacrifice your joints, Your body, your health, working in the minds doing whatever you needed to do to make this country run, And I'm sorry, but we're going to double down on what we double down on yesterday. The Democrats are now the anti work party, the anti productivity party. The pro poverty party and they're doing things we were warned about decades ago by King philosophers like Thomas Soul would lead to generational poverty, and they're doing it again. Because either they're really stupid or they want the country to rot from the inside out, and they are the pro poverty party. I believe in the latter, not the former, They are not stupid. So the new model of the party because we're done playing around is the Dan Bongino Show, quote. Get your ass to work. If you don't want to work

Whatever something him and he's no longer worm houston the entire vineyard and the orchard to the fruit the trunk growing wisdom and joy that doesn't need to devour. This is how human being can change. This is a verse or poem about really the evolution of consciousness and this shifting from a separate self out of fear and grasping is kind of addicted habitual and to that realization of connection and oneness allows us to really live from a place of love and wisdom with. I'd like to do during this class. Is i ask you the question. Really what is between me and that sense of that whole mess. Growing wisdom enjoy just a sense what is between me and that experience and then to really look at two areas that many of us land on that seemed to run interference to areas of a fear where we might say. We're stuck as that worm. That's kind of addicted to the to the grape leaves. And then just to explore how meditation can be this evolutionary strategy that allows for grace that allows us to wake up and to begin with just to say. It's totally natural that we go through a phase of being the worm eating graves. I mean that's just part of evolution to and i don't know how many of you either had the hungry caterpillar. Read to you a ready to your children are reading your grandchildren. How many hungry caterpillar. so that's a good ninety percent of us which is a story of a hungry caterpillar that each day is getting more and more food and the foods beautiful like all these different kinds of fruits and vegetation and there's nothing wrong with it and at some point he gets really big and full and he creates a cocoon and there's a kind of stillness and then boom you know he's transformed. There's the
Native Elders And Spiritual Awakening With Linda Star Wolf
"The caterpillar caterpillar. Happy is eating. The you know the boys and it's a category happy but one is just not happy anymore. Doing what it's doing. And it climbs the tree and it literally falls part cracks itself oakland and creates a cocoon. It goes internal and it goes in ernal to literally activate maginal sale. You know or the god. God within have you wanna look at it great spirit but to activate its ability to regenerate itself and to rebirth itself so the caterpillar has to go through an ego death and as doing bad it literally sends out. Secretions that dissolve itself. I mean imagine acid eating away at your being. And that's what feels. Sometimes you know we feel that way. All my god. I would go over here to this class. That i was gonna find peace law now to leave me and my kids are a wreck and you know my dog won't listen and you know i'm eating too much sugar and you know whatever and it was happening but willie side to do something you know. This is true. None of us really decide to do something until everything's dots start working. Stop working we. It would be nice as they. Oh yes i signed after that because it looks like a good idea. What we're doing is like what the heck is going to help me. You know. Even even if i don't know what it what kind of help i want. So you know that's a signal to your ego that albright other things are going to start falling apart and it gets nervous and it resists and all kinds of things that calls on its friend shadow to start acting out even more right but really and truly they really are in what we would say in the western kentucky. Where i'm from. There really includes with one another with spirit because that good go ahead make it really rough. Doesn't work you know it makes my job easier. So eventually that little caterpillar dissolves. And you know when it's dissolving. There's gotta be some hardest thing. I don't know if this was a good idea. You know but eventually it starts to reform

Then she and malik watched the two thousand eight documentary the business of being born which is critical of medical interventions and depicts a successful home birth. We both looked at each other.

Malik ask gee-gee what music she wanted to hear and she surprised him by requesting the audio of favourite children's novel the indian in the cupboard.

"Let's talk about transparency. For a second is one of the ways that you actively promote transparency on your team. Because we've i that's a consistent thing that we hear when we talk to leaders that transparency is important and that having an open door policy is beneficial and that it promotes clear communication. But i think sometimes saying that you're transparent being transparent are two different things often and it might be harder to achieve than it is to say we value it. So what's one of the ways that you guys promote it on your team. Well it starts with me right so i have to lead by example especially on that topic again is come into a new role in generally speaking right. It takes me some time to have an impact when it come into a new role. Because i want to establish transparency entrust burst before i started pushing driving change and so the things that i do is again. I'm very open. I share very personal stories right. Both work related outside work to try to show that. I'm going to be an open book. you know. I think the other really. Good way to demonstrate transparency. Especially with your most. Talented people is actually giving negative feedback. It's very easy to look at the the most talented people on your team. Just keep on all. You're doing great right. Keep doing what you're doing. That doesn't help him right. If they're really that good they want feedback on where they can improve. And i think too many times. The most talented people on teams aren't given the feedback on how they can continue to improve. And truthfully the most similar people relish staff and then again also get leads to this idea of transparencies. Yeah you're doing a great job. You could do even better. Here's a few things you could work on and again. I emphasize as to my entire leadership team that as they work with with the staff a we're going to develop every person right you're going to give them positive feedback on what they're doing good and you're gonna give negative feedback and tell them what they can work and again. I make it very clear. That's my expectation and again. I do that with my team. I'm very intentional about that. And again when you give the feedback on the negatives he also need to frame it into always that can help them with their career or their current job or get to the next position. Whatever it is the why is really important. When given improve feedback again if everybody on my leadership team is doing that then again over time again. Sharon personal things given negative feedback. Framing it into it. How it's going to help that individual developed than we get a team that starts really working in sharing. The big part is sharing. Why will they share their ideas. Because again the best ideas usually come from the front line from the top down and when we were talking about that in our first call we were speaking about innovation but also a consistency in alignment so talk a little bit about that. Why is it an important to align on kind of philosophy of experience into offer consistency in. How your teams aligned towards a certain goal so it will at least at a large company like caterpillar rate. We we have these organizational structures and in many cases we let the organizational structures getting in the way of getting work done. So if i'm really going to be effective. There is no perfect organization structure. So however restructure by team it's going to be perfect. There's going to be projects or situations that come up where i need people multiple teams to go attack a problem whether it's a part of their job or now and so at that moment when we start asking to the teams to do that again. I need to go work on it with another team and i need them to feel like. It's all part of our team right. It's spain is not that they're going to going to work with a new group that behaves differently. That does work really right. They get feedback differently. We want that consistency so again i can take folks. Flynn team have worked with a different team. For a short duration or even longer duration where the need is just so that we can accomplish critical goals as again as a large company. Many times right. We we get stiff organizational boundaries. With you know over clear roles and responsibilities and people struggle a little bit with kind of stepping out of that box to go work on something else that isn't officially kinda in their team's lineup. Responsibility so i think it really enables. The more seamless use of our resources in very quickly so they can jump in and help it again. Feels like their own team. Sure when you were talking about values and the the kind of the caterpillar values that not only. Would you expect your team lives those values at work but also outside of work. It kind of reminded me of how you use the phrase culture of carrying the golden rule treating other people. Like you'd want to be treated. These are things that we hear inside and outside of work. Sometimes the goal is a coach all of my leaders to separate the person from the job right. The job is a role persons. A person all all people have them so that even when we may be giving someone in action plan because performances subpar. I don't want that to be construed by by that individual as you're not you're not worthy you have no value. I i want to know that no value is a person now. Maybe you're performances in what we need for this role for our team to be successful. And maybe it's a bad fit. Maybe you're in the wrong role. Whatever it is right but to make to make it very clear that that is not a personal thing. It's not because we don't like you don't you personally value every person and so again. It takes time to build a culture to be able to pull that off. You don't do that day. one right. That happens through ongoing conversations. Were you demonstrate. You genuinely care about a person by respecting their work. Life balance right and that doesn't mean every day you're going to have perfect work life balance right we talk about in totality of a year. That a person can look back. And say yeah. You know i good work life doubts but when you know there's times especially working in technology right in and it and digital right. Yeah we do. We can change. Its right we have. We have things. Go down off shift in. We have to jump in and bickham right. So that's a reality. We have to deal with so so how we're gonna accommodate in you know someone works all weekend To do something for us right then. Yeah you know i. I want my leadership team now. They have flexibility right. Make sure you have the discussion with those employees about work life balance in the next week or month can can we do to to rebalance that back out. You know again what. I think we get from that over time. Out truly impacted the success. My team says loyalty when when the team knows we care about them. As people we care about their work life balance in totality. I get great discretionary effort. It's all about when the chips are down right when things are bad. They're going to do everything they can to make our team successful because they also know that right to be ignored in and again they feel. Compelled is a part of the team that cared for one. Another right to be successful And it really allow this evolves out of my growing up big into sports Handsome one one sports coach in particular His name was joe snyder. He was migrate schools for coaching coached. All sports at our school and josie kind of think of bobby knight tight right little old school hard disciplinarian right pushed us really really hard will. The one thing joe was relentless on is selfishness. Right to be team..

"Twenty three years is that is that correct thirty thirty years. Lincoln research was missing a few years there so a long career at large successful company. Tell me a little bit about your story. And about your time at caterpillar. What's most interesting about my my long tenure at caterpillar as i did internship caterpillar during between my junior and seniors in college in computer engineer the university of illinois and was excited to go to work for ibm and had a verbal offer from ibm over christmas. Break of my senior year actually went back to school thing. A job didn't need to sign up for interviews romney into january. I got a phone call from. Ibm saying there would be no offer of that. They were going through some restructuring inaction. We're gonna be laying people off so the now is in a scramble. Not well you know. I grew up around caterpillar in central illinois that while just caterpillar a couple years while i wait for the economy to recover and then move on to an ibm microsoft or somewhere and thirty years later. Here i still am so Again ito the thing that kept me in caterpillar get asked this question last but she i guess lecture at the university of illinois in new some recruiting for cat and in getting in today's day and age where like three years at one company. And it's like well of course enough to really have five years at caddo. Words started engineering. I were denied he ever worked in digital. I've worked in marketing worked in analytics and again at a company like cat. If you do well you can travel the world. you can live internationally. You can move across organizations in functions in. I've definitely been poor champ. Take advantage of a lot of those opportunities and the other thing. I try to personally defeat. This myself is even when i was an intern when caterpillar was recruiting me. They did a terrible job of explaining a kind of technology company caterpillar. really is we literally are our world leader in technology and again as i got more integrated into the company. I started seeing these things. My first jobs were working on a machine and engine simulation which i know idea caterpillar did but that was very interesting. Work was a part of team that invented the virtual reality cave caterpillar hold We put our first iot device on a machine using satellite technology for communication in nineteen ninety nine so we are doing is not in nineteen ninety nine so a lot of those things you know. I didn't understand caterpillar. did which is why would would not have considered cat as a computer engineer but Him the company start getting exposed to these kind of technology Problems that we were were solving. I had a lot of really interesting. Jobs go work on a lot of really interesting projects very cool. I know you've how the number of leadership roles as well. And i wanna get into that in a second but one of the things a lot of business owners that we talked to are trying to better understand is how do i retain talent. How do i keep people at my company because especially in the younger generations it seems like bouncing around a lot is a way to accelerate your career. And we've even had some people on the show that have said that's not a bad thing. You know explorer figure out what you love. Try five six seven different companies but on the other side of that from a business perspective if you have someone that you know that you've invested in in their education and you've onboard them and you've got them and they're a good fit for your company culture. Is there any. Is there any advice that you could offer business leaders that could help them to better retain the talent you know that they've they've made an investment in i mean it's it's it's very hard to have kind of a corporate program right the focus on that because each individual unique that mind by says you really have to get the no the individual and what drives them what interests them and then tweak their career progression to match their interests. No for me yeah. I had a pretty short attention span. I get bored quickly. So i like variety. I like to move on and try new things and so for me changing jobs every two to three years and now changing jobs but doing something radically different. Something where. I'm learning of versus other people in right one of progress in the same area. No baby it's an accountant that wants to to keep moving up in the you know. The question is to that. Individual is what drives them to stay right what interests them and then be very individualized about it. I think with the the trap we fall into his russia's of big company like caterpillar is. We can have kind of one philosophy. One way that we manage talent and it's gonna meet everyone's needs and i think again in the day and age of social media and personalization we we need to personalize the experience for each employee. That'd be my advice not not following these traps of kind of big corporate programs. It's great advice. And i think one of the things that's going to keep people around is to have a great team around them and mentors and great leaders that they enjoy working with. So let's talk about that for a second you shared with me what you call the pj experienced and some of your credos and it was really interesting. You've got a very deliberate leadership style. Can you walk our listeners through your approach to leadership. Yeah absolutely so you know been my first credo is is have fun and i come to work every day with the intention of having fun and and it's very visible so i cracked jokes Again i try to keep things light in. That shouldn't be mistaken for not taking right our job. Seriously your project that we needed deliver seriously. I'm extremely intense undelivered. In fact i can be difficult to work for. My expectations are very high. But but to do that you know to to come to work and make sure we keep it all in perspective work work as a means to the ends not the ends itself there the rest of your life which is very important so it all starts with establishing a culture of trust you know coming into work everyday having fun being very transparent with the team So that not only will they see me. Share things Very personal things even But i really trying to get them to do the same thing back. And when when. I start seeing the personal sharing back than i know right we we have that level of trust that i'm looking for and again so if you come into a team what i hope. People will experiences. We're going to have fun. We're going to work hard. We're we're going to help. We have very challenging work. Because i try to put myself in an enrolls. Were there is challenge. And then we're going to just busted to try to deliver in exceed expectations for the enterprise But along the way we're gonna have a lot of fun doing it right and so that it's a hours. Think about it as or the places. I enjoyed working the teams. I enjoyed working on in hardwired. Replicate that in own. Some of the best teams i'm on our Were on in my career that those people that are still friends with today. No even though you may not have worked together for twenty years of we're still in contact and that's that's when you really know it was a great team right in and guess what the that team that was on twenty years ago that we're still friends we did. We have great accomplishments together and so so again you start. Establishing the trust build teamwork. Those are all things i think. Lead to success so no somebody other credos have fun. Work hard be passionate..

"Gas is reasonable wage. Answers to your 7.5 dollars per million. Btu. But taking all those factors into a kite Lou that customer receiving an excess of a million dollars per year on fuel alone lazing bgb. That's an impressive numbers Graham. I appreciate you sharing that with us now on mine site rights as a great application, but what other kinds of electric power applications should be considering d e b. Question. Do you meant anywhere really where gas is less expensive than diesel at the point of views as you as you mentioned main sites, we've talked about that already dead. But any industry were diesel generators are used for prime or continuous power generation should look carefully as technology, very significant savings are possible as well previously, maybe less obvious or other normally think of like stung by power applications where perhaps on-site diesels dog. Your supply can be problematic because you use 70% less diesel per megawatt of power generated the dtb system can be used effectively choice either one reduce the amount of diesel. You need the store on site or two you'd from an amount of diesel extend potential wrong teams from the capacity of already installed. There are also benefits of gas from being able to manage your fuel consumption depending on the price or for that matter. The availability of diesel or gas future-proofing is another interesting angle. So if pipeline the gas infrastructure is planned for the future dtb gives customers across effective way to hedge their pants for that eventuality flew. I hope you're in agreement. There are many many applications where DG be should be considered and could help birth. And without question it seems like you know as we live in a more uncertain power world if he will the opportunity for customers to take control of that variability and manage it to them sounds fascinating. So while we've been talking I've been taking notes and I want to share with you you mentioned one of the takeaways early, but I wanted to share some of the notes that I've taken. So first up a DG be dynamic gas blending is caterpillars fully integrated dual fuel system. The overriding priority of the DGP system is to protect the engine and Jen set the next priority is to maximize diesel substitution, which can give significant fuel cost savings as you mentioned substitutions of up to 70% day..

"The gas station mix its way through the air system to the cylinder and is ignited by a small pilot injection of diesel. So in this way, the gas provides a fraction of the energy for the ancient and reduces the amount of diesel consumed by the end. So this is what we mean when we talk about diesel substitution rates fantastic. This may be a silly question but is dual-fuel then the same as biofuel not a silly question at all. It's a great question. It's something where there can be some confusion. The answer is if they aren't similar but different a bi-fuel engine can run on 100% gas or a Geo fuel engine cannot so the GOP engine requires not small pilot Diesel Injection that we talked about to ignite the gas where a bi-fuel engine doesn't lead that Perfect. Thank you for clearing up. My terminology. I appreciate it. So the GB is a dual fuel kit and as such cannot be run a hundred percent gas, is that correct? That's exactly right. So DT B can substitute up to 70% as a diesel with natural gas and I can do that right from 40% to 90% of its own, right interesting. So obviously there are these kits on the market. So what's the difference between d g b and all the other kids on the market today a couple of things really that differentiate Thursday GB first and most importantly is engine protection. So the DGP system uses Innovative in cylinder Dynamic pressure sensor, which very carefully monitor individual cylinder combustion and using those measurements prevent pressures and temperatures exceeding they're liable limits for that club. So that's fascinating grab this technology can actually monitor and adjust the fuel substitution rates in real time. Yes, exactly, right and that and large part and it was the second thing which you wanted to talk about which was diesel substitution levels diesel substitution levels. They're the big Financial sawad. That's the whole point of this technology is to allow customers to substitute expensive Diesel with less expensive gas. And obviously the higher the diesel substitute of levels, the more money. Our customers see of them feel Bells, very important point to make glue is that this substitution shouldn't come at the price of the longevity of your oil change and some of the systems on the market today are add-ons their development third parties not the engine manufacturer and so we're not sensitive to the engine and its operation wage. Designed by our Engineers integrates seamlessly and sensitively with arranging Rd GB solution offers maximum substitution levels and unlike some of those mock sternness truly respects..

"That we've been dealing with this caterpillar down here, John and when I saw the news story last week, when you were gone, getting married Congrats again. Thank you. I was I was trying to get someone on the phone up in Virginia Who knew about the Ah, the caterpillar that we have been dealing with down here. And no one knew what I was talking about. Well, you know, and like you said, we like to look out for our listeners. A lot of guys that work out in the you know, landscaping business tree business, not to mention if you're just out in the yard with your family. At any moment, you could become a victim of of the Ah, the venomous caterpillar for sure, And a lot of guys who do work outside, especially in the shrubbery. Might see the venomous push and it's it looks like it's Harry. It's just I don't think it's really hair. It probably had to pay. But if you were to see it you go not gonna harm me if I give it a little flick, and then and then it will sting the living crap out of you, as we've seen in many news stories down here, and so we wanted to touch base with a bona fide expert. Thanks to the communications department at Virginia Tech. We were able to get their entomologist on the line with us, Mr. Eric Day, Eric. Thank you very much for joining us. I appreciate it. Very happy to be on and and you're right about the way it looks relatively harmless. Most your stinking caterpillars have very contrast ing patterns or spines, but the post caterpillar looks soft enough to touch but you'll regret it soon thereafter. Would you get on board with our campaign that we have going on here? Don't touch the puss, Eric because we had T shirts made for the further because a lot of outdoor jobs out there, especially down here in Florida. You know, these guys need to know. Don't touch that puss. Well, long as you had in the word caterpillar. I think I'd be good on that. I think it's an implied. You know, you have a nice nice picture of the beautiful thing. I can't see where anyone else would get any other interpretation, John sending Do you have something for Eric? Yeah. Eric, you kind of touched on that there about you know, adding in that word, caterpillar, do you find that the name and the way that this caterpillar looks it really as people's guards down and they don't really recognize. Just how dangerous the puss Caterpillar is I agree most. You'll hear the word caterpillar and they think at the most, and now you're cultural past. But they're mostly thing of caterpillars. Kind of harmless. You see out in the garden or something like that. But you know these singing caterpillars and and this is one of several that we have around and we have the big one in Virginia Saddleback Caterpillar, But it is it is definitely something. Keep an eye out for how long have you been familiar with The plus Eric? Well, this has been the insect ideal ad for 34 years, and we've always gotten samples in of not just this, but I've also settled back. There's ah Monkey slogs Hackberry leaf slide. They always seem to kind of come in low numbers have also been personally familiar with it as they have a small farm and I bumped into these things from time to time and I get kind of the more severe reaction where I get a rash and a water blister. On that sort of thing going on so deadly that kind of learned. Ah, look forward to avoid. Well, if you're looking to eradicate those say someone else out there was a farm and they don't want the unwanted caterpillar on their property to eradicate them. I'm sure there's juices inside the posts that could harm you are getting Ryan staying you would you recommend someone pound the puss? Would you recommend they? What would you recommend? They do to just step on it or shot the puss. Well, you know, there's a number of controls you can use for caterpillars that will do a pretty good job. So it was just a matter of kind of, you know, looking to see what's labeled insecticide wise for you to take care of it that way. And spray. The Plus is what you're saying. Yes, with an insecticide that category, so they need to die like like there's like you shouldn't you know, Let's not get crazy, John. Well, I'm just saying, like it's not. He's not saying, you know, take the post to a safe place and you let it free. He's saying insecticide it so if you're going to kill it, But I sure he has an entomologist sees the value in all creatures in our beautiful ecology and eco system. Right, sir. Well, if it's a sea, there's a lot of most insects are harmless. And we kind of tell people about that. But the post caterpillar there singing caterpillars are all things that can help you to watch out for him. We do recommend to control him. If you see him, it's really hard to control them because their native insect usually in low numbers, and so you don't really have to Teo to worry about it most years, But you know, they start to kind of show up. The Saddleback Caterpillar shows up on things like sweet corn and fruit trees, and some sprays are definitely warranted for that, too. So I'm not against sprays for insect control just kind of matter using, um, where the best occurs when the past occurs, That sort of thing. Absolutely. We're speaking with Eric Days, an entomologist at the bird at Virginia Tech University. John sending what do you have? Dr Eric is Ah, Is anything going to eat the puss? They're for the most part being caterpillars avoid predation because that stinging ah effect that they have. There are a few birds. I kind of get around and they're able Tio eat them so That kind of takes care of their some other parasitic wasps that actually go out with them as well. So that but they mostly going to get left alone can get that nature says Don't don't touch on DSO. These stinking caterpillars get left alone. But if you think that kind of figure him out, I didn't know that birds. Birds found it So no do they get stung one? And I mean, it might be a dumb question, But I'm a layman, You know, I mean, like, if a bird Ah pigeon mourning dove, even a rooster where they were to eat the post. Would it get stung on its face or or beak? Or would it just be able to swallow it down? Well, depends on the bird and chances are there, you know? Most of them are going to have a bad reaction to it. So you know, taken things here. How to kind of fall the hole. They should be Okay. But you know if there pick it up or handle it. You know what? Their beak or something like that They're all I could get stung And then prayer can ever go back to pick up that thing again. To kind of learn from Got you, Johnson..

"He'll speak with you? Hopefully set up a time. Tio meet with you in more detail. 8667589473 just want to get to a few individual names that we just started accumulating within the last few weeks for the first time in the 16 years that I've been with the group wants a household name Caterpillar. Symbol C 80 trading around 1, 53 1, 54 or so a share. Think you all know the name Caterpillar checks a lot of boxes for us. As I said earlier in the show, you're really starting to see the material stocks and industrials outperform on a relative basis and more appetite. We're sort of global cyclical stocks in general. The dollar has also been weak. Over the last few months. Caterpillar correlates positively with the euro and some other foreign currencies because they do a lot of business overseas. And the set up for them is probably the best it's been in several years. There was a noticeable destocking is what they call it at the retail channel, where You know they're retail outlets and vendors basically buying equipment because they were sitting on product that is mostly been cleaned out, and I think what was a headwind should become a tailwind over the next couple of years. There are other reasons Tone caterpillar, but those of the main reasons Valuation is not demanding currently trading about 17 times next year's earnings, which is again for Caterpillar, that's not expensive. I think the risk reward ratio is very favorable. A TTE this point. Another recent edition is one You probably don't know. It's called Sportive Corporation. F o R T I ve symbol F TV trading around 77. They were spun out of Danaher de HR treating around 207, which is one of our favorite cos I long term diversified, mostly health sciences. Conglomerate, of was And ask that they really liked, but it didn't really fit there overall profile, so they spun it out. But the reason we like them as they have the same management that they had at Danaher with the same philosophy buying market leading top 123 franchises as I mentioned an industrial company. Specialising, most mostly in professional instrumentation, everything from Ah sterilization systems to pressure temperature, sensing all kinds of thermal thermography solutions. Really? Type products, but I think what I really like about Ford of his, they've really changed their business model to focus much more on recurring revenues. Only about 10% of their business was a new ties a couple years ago. Now it's almost 30% that generated Tana free cash flow. Which they used to make additional acquisitions. Also buy back stock again. They're trading towards the low end of their evaluation ranges on a price to earnings and a price to even up basis. Look at Fort of Simple Ftv and the other one is You may not know the name, but you may have them. Potentially in your home, and that's Generac holdings G NRC trading around 1 87 a share their the number one player and residential standby generator market. With about almost 80% market share. Ah, very interesting business with significant long term growth drivers, whether it's costly power outages, natural disasters. The generator market has been phenomenal, and I think we'll continue to be phenomenal. They also have A lot of capabilities in terms of natural gas that I think they'll be able to work with consumers on on natural gas efficiency, Peak shaving, actually battery storage of energy, So there's a lot of applications to their technology. It's a great growth story, not the cheapest stock in the world, So we just sort of nibbled on it. But with 12 to 13% average Earnings growth since 2010 strong free cash flow conversion. We think it's worth paying up for them, so check them out. I'll talk about the more next week and in more detail, give Greg a call. He's still there. 866758 wise 866758. 9473 until next time. As always, I wish he.

They don't have a big banner. Banner Look Art. Yeah. So this one's. procreate nobody heard things about it. The artists that she follows us on. The it's it's ten dollars, but it's a one time ten dollar purchase. And it's Really Good Apparel I'M GONNA. Get. It. Yeah, I've been having the most fun or in in our in concepts but I WANNA try out I'm kind of in that in that space where I'm still. amenable to things that incites of what I see artists twitter. Them. Just talking about procreating all. Is. Not even I don't even think it's like pro desk create like it's stripped the word. Yeah. Yeah. I mean it's it's a smart name. Yeah. I'm a I'M GONNA buy appropriate so so I did the concept art for the G. and then I was league okay. That was fun and I'm I'm still kind of digging this like Arb- thing I. liked the first time. I. Really felt like I've done a satisfying piece of visual art. So like what can I do? Next, and so then I was like, well, I'm obsessed with these caterpillars that we have and so and I kind of with this other piece of art I traced something that didn't belong to me, and so what if I could make something that holy belongs to me even though I'm tracing it and so I took a bunch of Nice pictures slash already had some of the Caterpillar's. Entries over them and like made more art that I felt like really personally gratified by like I. Felt Like it looks good I showed it to Khloe mellow sister who is who is like such a great artist and she? was telling her about it and I sent her and she was like Oh, my God I was expecting this to be. Such a great compliment from khloe sounds backhanded but it's not like I agree with her I also expected to be bad but he's our tools are just incredible the drying and making on the ipad is so forgiving everything. In this concept's. APP like there's a lot of fine grain control, you can have I was thinking about that when you're talking about garage band Batum, but it's Kinda. It's Kinda the same thing like every line drivers vector and can be altered in any way it can be big into can be changed. It can be like so you unlike paper and pen where you driving the final word it's like just the beginning when you do something badly you can. There's guiding lions that you can do. There's like little you can like. have it. I don't know what the word is, but there's like a kind of a thing where Kinda straighten up your squabbles if your hand is steady and it's just been great. So I've been doing like, Caterpillar stuff the latest thing I'm working on is I'm designing I've been wanting to have a little. Container bookmarks in my lesbian lending library because all like pick up a book and read a little bit of it, and then I want to put a bookmark. Or loaning it to a friend I WANNA put market as. Designing custom. was. Lending Library. That I'M GONNA get printed Having, a great time I think the only frustrating thing about this is I haven't had much time at all to pursue this hobby of head this crazy busy week. I really did like a few hours on Saturday a few like a few hours on Sunday in maybe a couple hours on Monday. But I've like ever since then I've been like super busy haven't had any time to spare to work on this so but yeah. Both of those things you described in they're both very pretty I'm looking at your caterpillars. Ma'am. Thank you. Just beautiful creatures and I feel. Like something that I feel like you know Amana when I'm done I'm GonNa. Get a print for my house in that good So Yeah and then just outside of the arts staff which has been revelation. Of like with these bookmarks in Mali was like you should design custom marks I was like I had this moment of Lake Yeah but less that's not something I can do, and then I was like that is something I can do I just feel like this whole like realm not entirely. But piece of Aram has been totally unlocked for me which has been really surprising in delightful. Feel like I've really gotten to know his particular brand of. You can tell. And so yes, just finishing up the last thing outside of that whole unexpected revelation is that has also been really great for gives me brainstorming work things I had a really productive kind of like brainstorm that I was just able to like continue unimpeded because they just had this infinite canvas that I could like work on and so that's been like like really really great I'm really looking forward to kind of more ways to unlock it and just surprisingly hamlet I'm loving this IPAD we probably should've mentioned at the top of the episode that this this upset is sponsored by Apple. were. You can get solitaire out. Platform offer. Solitaire doubt. That's right. Like garage band. Damn. I mean they. They really make some good stuff this the pencil integration really good Aaron.
