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.

We gave you three scientific statements about bugs and challenged you to guess which one was the one true. How was it a spiders. Use their legs and feet to taste their food or was it. B cockroaches can hold their breath for forty minutes at a time or was it see. There's a type of wasp hides from predators by pretending to be bird poop and to answer yesterday's question joining us by phone. It's death in seattle. What's the while. I'm indian guy stephan from seattle and my while in the world that cockroaches can hold their breath for forty minutes. Isn't that insane. Say hi to reggie for me and dennis. Everyone knows your static. Man that is correct contestants. You guessed the answer. Be that cockroaches can hold their breath for forty minutes. You found the winning. Wow congratulations rouser. Slim cockroaches they suck it. Oxygen through small in their thorough axe and that oxygen travels through a very special system of tubes before getting delivered to all of the rest of the parts of their body. It's like they take one deep breath and their body. Does the now if you guessed a or c. You weren't too far off while spiders. Do love tasty meals it's actually the housefly that has taste buds on its feet. These taste buds. Make it easy for flies to eat on the go. They land get a quick taste and get away before danger approaches. And if you chose c. Watts may not be able to camouflage themselves as bird poop but there are some caterpillars that can the black and white spine on some caterpillars like the ones that turned into a beautiful asian swallowtail butterfly.

Killing Conflict with Dangerous Love Chad Ford - burst 13
"I'm going to hold myself accountable to how I see others, and then how I treat them in three I'm GonNa roll up my sleeves and I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. I'M NOT GONNA. Try to win a conflict nor am I just going to give in and rollover nor am I going to avoid that that real relationships are when we roll up our sleeves and work on our problems together if that takes weeks fair enough if that takes months fair enough because we're committed to each other. And we're committed to each other success and each other's well being in each other's happiness. This message we live in a really polarized country I'm right now J. seems to be lost on. So many people right now that there is no successful outcome. No right to an election if half the country feels abandoned if half the country fills loss of half the country feels like they are not being seen or heard or valued. There's no win ready. For anybody for the winners or for the rights, there's really no. Right, and that's true. All the way down into whoever our partners are to our relationship with our kids you you win an argument and your spouse loses you lost to. Absolutely. And you might not recognize it today. But YOU'RE GONNA pay for it I'm down the road and so learning how to collaborate and really problem solving committing to that. Is is is something that is a value that I think sits at the very basis of what it means to be human I'm right and what it means to be a good person. Right and so I can have a value about is on time or you know this is my political stance on whatever it is and and that could be really important to be fair enough right and we disagree on it fair enough values important to you. It's not necessarily important to me, but because it's important you. How do I? How do I understand that I understand what underlies that what? What, what, what's in your life experience whatever that's made that? So import do and how do we get creative about finding solutions that meet that need for you as well as meet the needs that I have I'm GonNa Bring the table because one thing I think people misunderstand about dangerous love love and thanks soft and okay. Here's here's what you're actually telling me. Just, love the person just give up whatever it is that I dream. Hope for one. Just let them let them win right because that's what that's what a really good person does and my answer to that is also the exact same as why you don't fight them right that doesn't work either right in a relationship. We it's it's about us not about me or them it's about us, and so us preservation becomes the rule of the day. We're Chad. Do. Right. There I'm just telling you. Chat four dangerous love is the book. I WANNA I wanNA talk about I. Think there's something fundamental about the metaphors at US between smog and the cocoon. because. I think. We've kind of danced around it but I think the metaphors are so powerful. that. If if people understand whether they're whether they see conflict as from a smog perspective or cocoon perspective that can really help us I believe because it helped me you know start to see conflict in a different way I. Think it's an important concept I. You want to just go ahead and give us the smog versus cocoon. Because I think they're powerful metaphors by the way. The Somebody engages me and says, Hey, I want you to help me mediate your conflict or whatever the I I asked them is can you give me a metaphor of what this conflict like means to you usually people pick things like volcano exploding or you know shark chasing nereo something that's really sort of dark and Morbid it's really helpful for me because I would say in my book they have something called the smog, the of conflict and and I use smog as an analogy right as a metaphor because you think about smog is it makes everything hazy it's not good for your lungs to breathe. Continued exposure to that can even cause cancer in your lungs and what have you. But also people feel pretty helpless of what do I do a smog like I can go buy a prius or something like that or I can start walking to work, but there's millions of other people driving cars. All over the place and none of them are necessarily going to be doing that as well, and so something has to change externally me. But in the meantime, I'm slowly suffocating dying right and that and that's sort of a view of conflict. It's going to lead the self-defeating conflict styles and start competing or I'm gonNA start running or I'm just GonNa lay down and die and given an in each of those cases of not actually going to get anything that I want that nor will I get something that will actually be released sustainable in a relationship but if you Have this cocoon view if you think about it. Okay. Like there's a caterpillar in there like walking around their leaves they're doing they're thing right. But then one day they wanted to become a butterfly. So they get in this Christmas or this cocoon and it's really tight and it's dark and probably pretty scary and there I doubt it's very comfortable for the Caterpillar. If you know what happens next the Caterpillar actually liquefies it actually actually essentially dies right but then it comes out of cocoon in it's it's got wings and it looks completely different by the way to I. A butterfly is not a caterpillar with wings. It looks like a different creature, but it can fly now. And I think that's a better metaphor for what we're trying to get with conflict. Yes. It can be a little scary. Yes it can feel confining. Yes my heart might be beating. Through it, but it allows us to fly at the end allows us to look at the challenges that we're facing together and find solutions that work for both of us and that so much better. Than just running or fighting or laying down. And and when we do that, we can we can fly and so yeah, conflict could be hard. It can be scary. That's that's that's true. But look what it can do to transform us. Right and transform our relationship and the best relationships as beautiful in the workplace are collaborative the best marriages. Are Collaborative John. Goodman. Who's done tons of research on married says you have an eighty percent chance of your marriage not working out if you don't let your partner influence you. An influence, your decision making. And then vice versa right. In other words if it's all about me, if I've got the inward mindset and my partner doesn't influence me, I influenced my partner. Right eighty percent chance of my marriage falling apart sometime. I'm right because people need to be seen. They need to be regarded. They need to be heard they need to feel like they're influence matters and that's true for all of us, and so I have to be alive to these people aren't always going to want to do it the way that I wanna do it or see it the way that I wanna see it and have to be open to finding pathways. Right that that worked for both of us in that, that's what makes a. Relationship a great relationship and why so many of us are right now struggling with certain relationships in our life and saying man I just wish I wish this was better I. Wish I had a better relationship with one of my kids right now really struggling her I know my wife and I are like roommates right now like you know we we live together but we're not really connected where the walking dead where zombies like we're living. But we're not living our communities we can't even engage. In these things and the answer is yeah, because we're not. We're not allowing ourselves to be influenced.

How GM Built A Car For The Moon
"Before mankind got so much as a sputnik into space, we were already dreaming of what cars would look like on the moon and other planets and the one thousand nine, hundred, fifty s Collier's magazine profiled german-born American rocket scientists, Verner von Braun full name and Verner Magnus. Maximilian Freiherr von Braun. and his Astro Utopian Masterplans for America to explore and colonize the galaxy. The articles were here in one thousand, nine, hundred, fifty style hype with scenes featuring the swaggering title man will conquer space soon. So soon, one of the articles imagined moon exploration that made use of free surface vehicles quote tank like cars equipped with Caterpillar Treads for mobility over the Moon's rough surface power is provided by an enclosed turbine driven by a combustion of hydrogen peroxide and fuel. Oil The vehicle was twenty five miles an hour on flat ground. Since gravity on the moon was only one eighth of that on Earth von Braun poetically pictured the space cars would be followed by a quote spray of dust, which settles almost immediately like a bow wave on a motorboat. That's pretty that's cool image that's visual to imagine the tractors. Each weighing ten tons would drag three trailers, a piece of gear and personnel in preparation for a six-week expiration involving fifty crew members. Crazy I love this sort of like blue sky kind of speculation. Yeah that's why Popular Science was one of my favorite magazines as a kid 'cause they always had like crazy tack on the cover and like all this speculation as to what it would be able to do and I don't think much of that has come to fruition. Maybe maybe less impressive but equally important ways. I. There is a shift in what we focused on and now much of the focus of technologies just collecting our data. So we can. That's a fair point. He sold things. It's like we're not focused on like space cars or. Travel are like we don't have like a passenger jet that breaks the speed of sound anymore but. They know what adds to give me and they know how how often I leave my house? Yeah. I keep getting served ads for crocs. I've been looking at them. I would I. I love him. I love mine. I had served that I really agree with because I was a hold out for a long time and I was like crops are dumb and then once I finally gave in to crocs, it was one of the best days. So yeah, there's a the the six week exploration involving crew members. That's a lot of dudes. Like like. I've mentioned going to space before and like like it's always three people you know. Let's what it feels like. It'll be sick to be up in space with fifty people. That'd be more. More, fun. I think there's a lot of that like there's like a a segment of sci-fi where it's like there's only four people in the space craft in one of them is a killer. Yeah. But like I feel that scenario would be a lot harder to posit when there's fifty people. That isn't that the premise of Jason X. where he goes to space I it sounds like something that would do. Yeah. They'd. Like they're like. I think it's the guy with. Hockey masks. Eight foot tall. Can't be too sure. Don't want to jump to any conclusion. Anyway an article in the series entitled Can we get to Mars imagine a similar scenario with tank like space tractors that would drive the living quarters on the surface of Mars this time traveling from a pole of the planet, all the way to the equator. Pretty Fun in

Found that yeah. The MESSI. Bernie. Brown someone who I love to read in she has. The magic is in the mess messy part of in the middle and so when you're going through a transformation similar to A. A Caterpillar transforming into a butterfly There's this really messy disgusting part in the Middle when it comes to butterflies They They the Caterpillar literally digested its own body so it's really gross. Reform into something completely new so I mean you and I were talking before about divorce and yeah, any type of Tran. transformative process that you go through you rebuild yourself into something new, but there's a messy part that in my first book I wrote about it is sitting in the darkness.
Virginia residents warned to stay away from venomous caterpillars
"You've seen everything in 2020 You know everything that could come our way. You know, we've had what we have the deal in the killer bees yet the Hornets the Hornet. Well, here come the poison caterpillars. The Virginia Department of Forestry has received multiple reports off the puss Caterpillar, one of the most venomous caterpillars in the United stumps. Hus Puss caterpillars. You shut out. Yeah, they have thick furry coats. And they conceal their venomous spines. Their sting is extremely painful and can cause a rash, vomiting, swollen glands, fever, even death. And puss Puss caterpillars aren't typically seen this far North. Which researchers say could be due to climate change.
Does Talking To Plants Help Them Grow?
"All Right Emily Kwong you are here for another microwave the. Short. Little episodes where we read some listener mail at the end. And we're talking about what science has to say and not say about plant bioacoustics and this question that I can't believe I'm asking which is does talking to plants impact their growth. It is probably the most common question I get from the public. This is Heidi apple professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Toledo. And just to get this out of the way, there is no conclusive scientific proof. The talking to your plans helps them grow. All. Right. Every episode done Boo Boo Boo we. Hold the phone if I? It's not that simple because Heidi is one of the few people who has studied plant response to sound and she considers plants to be sentient beings. They have a sense of vision sight smell. And taste they have hearing. Scientists disagree about what language to use here I mean our plants sentient. They don't have brains. You know those kinds of questions but scientists have found evidence that plants can detect sound all life has some form of McConnell reception. Mechanical reception meaning, they can sense stimuli from their environment like touch pressure and vibration. We humans have pressure receptors on our skin and it turns out that plants can sense pressure to this is this is very cool. I'm getting into this now. Yeah. Through these special proteins called mechanical receptors that can send a signal that sets off a chain of events telling the plant, how to respond so like if a bug lands on them or something yes, and the plant will perhaps release chemical to defend itself plant panic. That's right. So these Magana receptors are really important for telling the plant what's up in its environment and plant scientists think these McKenna receptors may play a role in helping plants, pick up vibrations including the vibrations caused by sound. You know sound waves we've known for a long time that plants can respond to single tones or even music. And they can respond by growing a little differently or their seeds may germinate at a different rate. But we never understood why they would do this. Why would they have this capability and that's where my work with collaborator Rex Co crowd at the University of Missouri comes in. So few years ago. Heidi Rex put together a little study asking if a plant will respond to vibrations in their environment and the vibration they chose to test was caused by a Caterpillar shoeing. What an adorable experiment munch up the leaves of the plant, specifically a mouse ear cress which Heidi had growing in the lab. and. These vibrations are super subtle. The the leaf sometimes moving like one ten thousand of an inch as the Caterpillar bites down. Brexit Heidi played the vibration, the vibration of the nominee caterpillar right back to other crush plants who had not been munched on at all, and then expose those same plants to real. Caterpillars. And measured their chemical response and the plants that had heard the recording beforehand produced more insect defense chemicals Oh so like playing the sound before the real caterpillar primed the plants. Yeah. This experiment show that plants pre exposed to the sound of Human Caterpillar produced a different response more plant panic if you will. Yes I will which suggested you know that plants these plants are sensitive to the sounds of this Predator the Caterpillar and then they tested other vibrations on the plant wind other insect eating noises that were not as threatening and when you know the plants did not respond like chemically they didn't respond. Correct. So okay. So does that mean they have? For lack of a better term selective hearing more like selective responding. Okay. Plants do respond to sound but only to sounds they've evolved to respond to if that makes sense. In, this case a Caterpillar Chewing Gotcha. Okay. So Caterpillar chewing. Yes. But what about a human voice? Well, that hasn't been comprehensively tested. Okay and Heidi thinks it's not likely a plant will be experiencing. No as in the sense of wind or a bird or a singing and Tamala gist. You, but they will they will be tuned to only the things that are important to them. Right, and and we don't know if one of those things is a human voice. We also don't know the. Of what they detect and we don't know if they'd have a reason to respond. So should you talk to your plants? Sure. Why not is it going to help them grow better your voice alone? No I don't think it's going to however. If you connect emotionally with your plant, better because you're talking with them, that means you're probably going to take better care of it, and therefore we're talking to your plants indirectly could

"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.

Martin Marietta and Han thanks so much for joining me today Audie. Thanks for having me Diane I'm looking forward to our conversation today. I am as well and we're GONNA be talking about culture in in business you know the impact that it has in. Most likely. Spending some significant amount of time talking about the current situation we were in an I had said in the introduction These episodes are evergreen and they are I think no matter when people listen to them. They're gonNA valuable information and We are recording this. I would love to say like toward the end but I'm not quite sure where we are with the whole covid nineteen pandemic and. So while there are things that leaders are going through and employees are going through therefore, companies right now I'm pretty confident that we're going to be talking about. Translates. No matter what the environment is that company finds itself. Absolutely Yep. Okay. So to start if we could. With you providing us with. A description of. Talking about the impact of organizational culture on business performance. The idea that comes to mind there is is a recent discovery of my own and I'll. I'll frame it in this language often I find. Organizations. Are Struggling with their lean or operational excellence deployments and there's a statistic that gets kicked around quite often that seventy to ninety percent of operational excellence. ORLEAN deployments end up in failure. and. My initial response to that was well, they're doing it incorrectly I need to understand why they're doing it incorrectly but I think, I've I've actually adjusted that language to not incorrectly but incompletely in, there's the connection to your question. And for me, the connection is we can do process improvement very well. But. If the rest of the organization is disconnected, the sponsors of the leadership level or the management level of process owners, then we can't sustain or continue to find ways to improve those processes in it seemed like we just continue to solve the same problems over and over again. That is so interesting. Okay. So, if I inherit you right. company decided they want to go through process improvement some area of the business, but they don't necessarily have. Complete buy in from everyone involved. So they go through the process and then everyone walks away. They go back to the way things were. Yes. Okay. So that feels to me like. The in has to start at the very top and then has to be pushed down is that A fair assessment. I would say, yes, there's there's one word though that mutiny short that is pushed because. When those sponsors and it's language that I use to refer to leaders when when leaders actually show up? and. They're clear what their organizations about what's important It's easy for organizations to align to that and questions that I ask often is how many of you came to work today to fail And no one answers the question. Yes. So I always say, well, if that's true of us, don't you think that's true of everyone in our organization we fail them by not being clear about talking about what's important.

In Seismic Shakeup, Dow Replaces Exxon Mobil with Salesforce
"We'll talk about an exclusive club the only members allowed into the Dow, Jones Industrial? Average. Are The thirty most stalwart icons of the American economy names like Home Depot Microsoft McDonald's Johnson and Johnson Caterpillar Goldman Sachs and until next Monday. Exxon Mobil. That's right. The Dow is throwing Exxon out not long ago such a move would have been unthinkable. The multibillion dollar oil company is the longest standing member of the Dow. It was first listed in October of nineteen. Twenty eight. The. Dow's leaders announced their choice to boot Exxon late, Monday the move is so remarkable that Bloomberg called it a stunning fall from grace for the giant oil company. Is Twenty Thirteen Exxon Mobil was the world's largest publicly traded company according to CNBC. But now in the flash of time that has been the Kobe pandemic traditional oil companies have fallen out of favor as oil revenues and profits. Sink investors are spurning energy businesses. As we've reported here. Recently, Exxon has been foundering as the green economy becomes more and more important to global consumers. Bloomberg reports that exodus is now valued at only one, hundred, eighty, billion dollars A. Drop of forty percent just since New Year's and even more sense it's half a trillion dollar valuation in two thousand seven. You could say Exxon's worth is plunged as deep as one of its offshore drills like whack-a-mole when a company is pushed off the Dow, another one jumps up to replace it. In this case the Dow kicked out three businesses, Exxon? Mobil pharmaceutical company Pfizer and Raytheon. Technologies like Exxon Raytheon is also a dow old timer it was first. Listed in nineteen, thirty, nine, swapping into those slots are salesforce dot COM tech company specializing in customer relationship management. The Dow also added Biotech Company Amgen and industrial conglomerate Honeywell International. This is the Dow's biggest shakeup in seven years, not surprisingly the share prices of the three companies joining the Dow was Tuesday for the three kicked off the island. Well, you guessed it share prices fell. There's a much bigger strategy here than simply reflecting Exxon's ill fortunes the Dow.

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.

But Why Live: Poetry
"Oscar is ten and lives in Bethlehem Pennsylvania and he told us he wrote this poem for Mother's Day bike rides with Mama another scrape. My knees keep donating bloody skin to the sidewalk. Here comes Mama keeping a straight face even though I know she must be laughing inside because it's not the first time I ride my bike into a fire hydrant since we took off the training wheels. I've been living on the edge the edge of sidewalk the edge of Aggressee Hill. The Japan nerves no longer our arms on my shoulder while I ride but she is always there. I remember clapping when I wrote up to the mailbox. You're doing it. She cheered. That was three years ago now. Whenever WE GONE by Christ's we travel miles. It's our thing on narrow streets. She leads the way otherwise. We're side by side even uphill in those. She's not holding my shoulders like she did when I was seven. I know I will always have balanced because of her. That's what a mother does to ride my bike with Mama to tell her without words that I love her Oscar. I love that poem. I Bet your mother was so so happy to get it. Here's a poem from Cassia. Who's seven and lives in Chatham on Tour Ontario? Her poem is called name is waterfall. I walk slowly down the rocks. My eyes are big whitish blue. I carry a bubble of water by breath salty. My touches software misty. I moved fast and sneaky voices. Smooth soft common scratchy. Right name is my name is waterfall casio. That is so beautiful all right. Let's get into more poems. We have more of you who are calling in to read some poems on air and some of you may have questions about poems and poetry that you'd like to share with us as well and I want to bring in our guide for the our Ted. Shy Ted is known as the poetry guy around here in Vermont and beyond. He's been teaching poetry. Two Kids for more than twenty years and some of you listening might have been about to have a school event with Ted shy before your classes got canceled so lucky us. He's with us today. Ted I Jane. I'm so excited to talk poetry with you. Even more thrilled than you. This is such a cool honor to be on your awesome show. Oh thank you thank you but I'm going to start with a really tough question for you. Although I think it's one you've probably answered many many times. So Ted when we think about poems some poems rhyme some poems. Don't some have a few words and then skip to the next line. Some have lines that run together. Some poems are designed to be read on the page others are designed to be spoken and heard a loud some poems follow rules about form and structure. Once you know the rules. Some poems still break them. Some poems are very very short but some like the epic poetry of homer are as long as a chapter book and have characters and plot like a novel would so ted. What is poetry? That's a hard question and you listed so many different ways because that's what homes are. There are lots of different things to me. A poem is a small mostly small. It's focused it's laser focused on one important thing in your life. Something you feel really strongly about and it's sort of like if if kids live in the northeast and especially in Vermont. They know that Maple Syrup for example is something we do here. We make here. And when you make Maple Syrup you take lots and lots of Sap from the maple tree and you have to boil it down and it takes forty drops of maple sap to make one delicious drop of Maple Syrup that dances on your tongue. And it's kind of a process that everybody has to take this long mostly long process of sort of distilling boiling down your thoughts until it becomes a really important night and idea and it doesn't have to take any particular shape. That's the cool thing about poems. A rules are super flexible. So but so if a poem can be anything if you're writing one. Oh that's a good question. Well it's sort of an open thing you. There's so many different shapes and sizes of poems but it is something that you know in your heart. You've written something. Like Oscar was writing about such detail and living I love the way he described living on the edge and Cossio filled with details about her voice and their breath is and it's looking at things really really carefully and so did I answer your question. Not really because there isn't there isn't really an answer. Poems take so many different forms but they're not stories there even though Oscar kind of told story. It's it's really just a focus little expression of something super important so those epic poems and epic poets like homer and you know the the Odyssey and the Iliad are those really kind of different than what we consider modern poems. I think so. I have a hard time There aren't too many poets that long stuff these days and back when they wrote those they didn't even write them down. Had people who memorize like and they would share it for many many days. Twenty four seven without stopping so that was kind of an unusual story type of poem and epic Narrative Poem. And fortunately there aren't. Most people writes shorter stuff and I certainly do myself. I'm kids. Maybe that's a good assignment for you. See if you can just recite a poem. Twenty four seven. See what you think about that. Maybe maybe you can tell them that. Ted Shy told you you should do it. Let's get to some poems. That kids are sending us and we have lots of kids calling in Ted who WanNa read their poems allowed and this is so exciting because I love it when are able to read their own poems but we got a found poem that was sent to us by the common dish town elementary sixth grade class they actually wrote this palm on zoom. They're having video conference meetings and they focused on things to do outside so each student put a line in the chat box in their video conference and hit send at the very same time and this is the poem that resulted watching the birds. That land on my feet feeder going hiking riding my bike bright orange caterpillar under the leaves. I breathe in air running down the sidewalk as fast as I can smelling the bright tulips growing. Love it outside. That's pretty good for palm that everybody hit send on at the same time. Don't you all say the ending? The last line is the perfect line for that yeah. Nothing's no kidding. Thank you for that. Kevin dish sixth-graders.
Historic Oil Bust Delivers A Gut Punch To 1 High-Flying Texas County
"People in the oil business are familiar with the cycle of boom and bust prices. Soar prices plunge but they've never seen anything like twenty twenty when the pandemic abruptly brought prices to record lows even below zero. Npr's John Burnett reports from the Permian basin the heart of oil country in West Texas on a normal day in Andrews County look in any direction and stretching to the horizon. You'll see bobbing horseheads of pump. Jacks sucking up oil from deep in the earth but these are anything but normal days right. Now it's scary honestly Linden pertain. A well technician standing in Mesquite. Scrubland that overlays. What experts call a Monster Oilfield? We drove out here. Usually you'd see you with all these good wells. That historically have done a lot of production. They would usually all pumping and kind of looks like caterpillars all running across the landscape. You know and that's not happening right now. All across the vast permian that straddles West Texas and southeast New Mexico. Wells have been shut in in the Argot of the oil patch. American oil companies are pumping a million fewer barrels a day than were just two months ago. According to the Energy Information Administration all the big players out here Exxon Mobil Chevron conaco Phillips have slashed for Andrews County. The effect has been cataclysmic. The county is considering layoffs and the city of Andrews will hold off repairing streets and building a new city hall when you have a community that receives about eighty five to ninety percent of their tax revenue for minerals. It's a serious threat. County Judge Charlie Falcon follows the news. And here's about other cities. Taking a hit from closed. Businesses and Hospitalizations Andrews has had only twenty one cases of covert nineteen and most people have recovered. Nonetheless was Texas is getting a double dip of trouble. Not only do. We have all drop. We have corona virus. And we don't know how long it's going to stay around. You know what people not working not been able to shop not being able to you now sell oil Creates SERIOUS PROBLEM FOR US? Bob Stewart's welding and machine shop. His lost half its business amid the paralysis in the oil patch. A few jobs keep trickling in stewardess Paul and lumbering and jovial. He's done this for nearly forty years. He survived downturns before. But he says he's never seen demand if that rate like this whole world. There's no airplanes fly. There's No car driving cruise ships cruising. There's no summer vacations. Golic's we're producing a lot of oil for a world. That's not using not consuming Bob Stewart is grateful that he has not had to lay off any of his hundred ten employees. He got more than a million and a half dollars through the federal government's paycheck protection program. But that's not going to last forever. It's kind of nine eleven you over. You know what I don't know what it looks like. What comes out. The other side is going to be different with more than twelve thousand active whales in Andrews County. Hydrocarbons have been good to this community. There's an air conditioned Rodeo. Arena a waterpark and new little league baseball diamonds. The schools have a planetarium and an Olympic sized swimming pool. All over town. Grieving motorcycles and ski boats are parked in driveways and behemoth pickup trucks. Roar Down Main Street though the one two punch of the pandemic and the oil bust have left the region staggering. It should not have come as a complete surprise. Every oil addicted town has been before I've been interviewed by the media three times and every time it's when Andrews is on the map for some dubious reason with the Economy Russell Shannon President of the National Bank of Andrews says established companies. That saved for a rainy day. Will weather this bust a lot better than others as I. Try to tell some the younger ones when they try to get in the business. There's a storm cloud out there just because you don't see it today doesn't mean there's not one on the horizon. I mean we've just historically we've seen it too many times. The oilfield workers with six figure salaries thought it would never end. Even though it always does Mighty O. Fernandez was laid off three weeks ago. As a workover rig supervisor now he's realizing just how good he had it. While I've noticed so much didn't realize how much I spent when I was at work breakfast lunch. Taking guys out to buy food. You know of course you want to you know. Give your guys. Hey good job in here here. Some steaks baked potatoes or something for doing you know working to butts. Fernandez sits on his front stoop and Andrews having a smoke and catching the night air after a scorching hundred and four degree day. Now he stays home helps his teenage son with his homework and he tries to keep a positive attitude. I used to worry a lot The Bible says not to worry about what tomorrow because we don't even know we're GonNa make it more so I just have faith and just believing that it's GonNa come back together. The question is when and how long folks can hold out John Burnett. Npr News Andrews Texas.
"caterpillar" Discussed on Sparkle Stories Podcast
"The Caterpillar and the flower on a long wide milkweed leaf that hung from the top tall green milkweed plant a very small caterpillar. Asked a question. What would it be like? On the far stock. The very small caterpillar was referring to another milkweed plant. That was standing right next to his plant. Now to you and me this would not be anything remarkable but to a very small caterpillar. The stalk seemed far away indeed so as he looked out toward the stalk he wondered if his older brother knew what it might be like. No one knows said his older brother. No one goes to the far stock. This was disappointing to the very small Caterpillar. He often found himself staring at the plant watching. It's wide leaves and the Pretty Pink Flowers. The danced slightly back and forth in the breeze. He imagined that the leaves on that plant tasted particularly sweet in that. The flowers on top smelled particularly fragrant and the milk from the stalk was particularly thick. He thought to himself. I wonder if one day I might be able to go there at first. He kept this dream to himself. He behaved like other. Caterpillars did crawling slowly from leaf to leaf munching. As he went he grew bigger and fatter every day and then one day. He accidentally mentioned the dream to his brother soon. I'll be big and strong enough to go. He said happily go asked his brother between bites. Go where the Little Caterpillar was quiet? He pretended to have a mouthful of milkweed and he chewed Jude while he thought about how to answer. You are thinking about the far stock. Are you his brother finally asked? The Caterpillar was silent for a moment and then he quietly answered. No because if you're thinking about going to the far stalk than you should know that some have tried but they never made it. The Caterpillar swallowed and asked they tried and came back. No said his older brother very seriously. They tried and disappeared. Caterpillar was quiet again. He did not chew. He did not swallow. He just looked at his brother and then at the far stock and he felt a touch of fear. Well most folk I say when they heard something like what this caterpillar heard would let go of their dream and focus on what was in front of them. They would only look at what they needed to do. In that moment and forget about anything out of their reach but this caterpillar was not that way he had a special yearning inside. He looked at the far stalk every chance he had admiring the flowers as they unfolded in the Sun Day smiling at the smooth silky surfaces of the leaves and the powerful stock that supported them all one day as he looked longingly across he thought he saw something new flashes of something Golden Orange wishing flitting in sparkling and then gone. What could it be? He wondered if he was making it up at first. But then it would appear again a flash sparkle wash and gone. What was it? Could it have anything to do with the caterpillars that disappeared? Was it something from some other land? It made him even more curious and more determined to get there well eventually. The Caterpillar thought that he was big and strong and fat enough to make the trip. He knew it would be a long and difficult journey and that he might not have leaves to eat her milk to drink he may have to climb great heights and there could be great danger but he knew that he had to go but then the night before he chose to leave. A great tiredness fell over him. He yawned and yawned. Felt a deep urge to sleep. He looked at the leaves of his milkweed stalk and felt his eyes get heavier and heavier as he settled on the closest leaf. Something miraculous happened. He produced a thread of silk. The silk came out in a thin sparkling filament. That seemed to stick to the leave. He spun more of the thread and more found that he could actually make kind of bed. A soft snug bed that would connect him to the leaf and keep him safe how cozy he thought now he could really sleep and once he was able to wrap himself entirely in the soft sparkling threads he completely relaxed. Tomorrow I will go. He said to himself but tonight I will sleep and immediately after the Caterpillar did fall into a very deep sleep and then he dreamed the dream was bright and sparkly just like the visions he had. When looking at the far stock he saw gold and orange flashes and sparkles and seeing them filled him with such joy such a sense of possibility and wonder. Oh what I would give to be closer to the colors. He said in the dream if only it were possible well. The Caterpillar continued to sleep and dream all through the following morning and day and night and morning and day. He slept several days six days. Seven eight nine days and then finally on the Thirteenth Day. He began to wake he had been dreaming about the colors the entire time and it seemed like every day he got closer and closer to the colors until he could actually hear them saying and laugh and the colors began to form. They looked like leaves but much thinner much more delicate and they moved much faster than the wind flapping flitting in flashing so beautifully in the sunlight and then toward the end of his sleep. He started to see another color a bright red color a wash of red. That was always out of reach. Always a little too far away but oh how? He longed to come closer closer. Oh how he longed to smell. The color tasted feel it but he could never reach well on the Thirteenth Day. He started to wake and feel the snug bed all around him. Though now it no longer seemed soft or even comfortable now the bed felt tight and dry and brittle so he felt an urge to stretch his many legs and stretch his strong fat body but the moment he began to stretch he could tell that something had changed as he pushed and stretched. He did not feel strong and fat. He did not feel his many legs but instead he felt bright he felt light and he filled up with sparkling energy and then with a faint crackle the brittle bed opened and let in the brilliant warm sunlight. The Caterpillar felt the sunlight on his face and it was like a jolt of power. He continued to push and prod and squeeze out of the bed until he shed the pod that held him for thirteen days and he stood on the leaf. He opened his eyes. He blinked several times because he couldn't believe what he saw. Not only did he see the leaf and the stalk he was now inhabiting not only could he see the far stock that was the object of his desire for so long but now he could see everything. He saw so many stalks so many other small plants and then tall tall plants and mountains and clouds and sky. He saw it all and it was so beautiful. He leaned his head back to feel the sun on his face and to look up at the blue sky and then he felt something unfold behind him. It was like part of him just relaxed and opened and then he side the flash the golden orange flash on either side of him flash flash flash it was just like the dream just like the brightly coloured thin leaves from his dream but now he could see that they were not leaves they were wings. They were his wings and with that realization. He flew into the air. The one that was once a caterpillar was now a butterfly. He had become the dream and with the sparkling flash of light he flew to the far stock and looked down he did not land however and instead he flew on. He saw Moore stocks and more stocks. He saw tall grasses and then trees and then taller trees he saw buildings and people and dogs and horses and then he spotted it near one of the houses that he saw. There was a patch of colors a garden. Perhaps that was filled with flowers. Yellow flowers and orange flowers blue flowers and purple flowers. But they're among all the colorful. Flowers was a single bright red flower. It was the one the one from his dream. He flew quickly toward it. Faster and faster straight to the red flower and then everything seemed to slow down. It was just like his dream. He could see the Red Flower. Get closer and closer but this time he was able to reach it he was able to touch the flower and smell the flour and even taste its nectar. It was real. It was not a dream. This was his new life. Once he was curious caterpillar that longed only traveled to another milkweed stock. And now that curiosity and love of possibility would take him further than he ever could have imagined. This has been an original story by sparkle stories of sparkle stories DOT COM copyright.

So if you've touched a Caterpillar, and you said, you get a really bad case of asthma vomiting and skin rashes. You know, you got the wrong Caterpillar, actually for tickles.

"I really. The thing that was funny about this was they introduced the concept in started reading a lot of articles about it. And they introduced it like, you know, how men will often provide women with an engagement ring when they propose marriage. Well, other species also provide gifts to commit to someone. So it's three months of salary or three one. So thirty percent three months of a three month load. It's terrible. The things we've said where fourteen minutes in the things we've said are terrible. But you want to know my first thing it's kind of tell you something it's food. So I should maybe switch it with my second thing and give it some space from your first thing. How about that? Why don't we switch? My second thing is Eric Carl Eric Carl. That's yeah. This is going to be a nice little sort of tonal shift. Eric Carl if you're not familiar with him, which I was not before I had a h high-heeled true. That is true. Like, I knew as work, obviously. But I didn't know I did not know him by name for sure. Yeah. I mean, I think he does not necessarily he's like one of the most successful for sure his art is super recognizable. But I don't think he has the name recognition of, you know, a Seuss, for example. But Eric Carl is the author of the very hungry, Caterpillar, and a bunch of a bunch of other stories, how do you say that word, you say Caterpillar, do you like an APR in the middle, Caterpillar, Caterpillar, Caterpillar, I know, a lot of Caterpillar. I'm trying to think as I said it Caterpillar there, and it felt weird coming out of coming out of the mouth. I see what you're saying. So anyway, the thing that I feel like I was not prepared for before. I had before we had our child. Is how one of the most like grueling forces that you have to sort of fight against is the force of like repetition, especially as they get to the point. Where like there is certain types of media that they only want to consume to wit. We have probably forty books. Right. We probably have about forty bucks forty to fifty bucks. I will say, and I have read all of them over a dozen times the airc- Carl collection. I have almost certainly read. There's some of them. I've almost I dead from definitely read one hundred times at this point. The thing is that's true of a lot of the books that we have and the air Carl ones are still like they're still kind of fun to me, and they are. So I I feel like they do stand out so much. They're just like they're really gentle books, really soothing. They're really nice to look at again, the very hungry. Caterpillar is his most successful book. It's a it's like sort of an iconic picture book about a little Caterpillar who hatches from an egg and then eat to bunch of garbage. And then go sleep for awhile. And then turns into a butterfly. And like most of that is stuff that I can fuck with for sure. This book is so successful. I did not really like appreciate how successful. It was. It has been translated into mortis more than sixty four languages, and it is sold more than forty six million copies. Which is a quivalent to one point seven copies sold every minute since it was published which is which is wild. I knew it was like a big deal. Right. Because every kid knows this story. But I I guess I didn't realize it was like a Harry Potter phenomenon. We're also talking for those that aren't familiar with Caterpillar, Brown bear, Brown bear. What do you see the whole blank bear? What do you blink collection? There are four books. This book the the the very hungry. Caterpillar is like so beloved because it is it is again, like a nice gentle tale, but it's also like you mentioned like, Eric Carl's, art style is so instantly recognizable all of his artwork is created through collage where he cuts. Yeah. He cuts layers handpainted papers to create these lovely images. And there's like all of his books have stuff like this. But I feel like the very hungry Caterpillar, this is maybe a weird thing to say. But like there's a long section..

The article that I read and and what I could find out. I never found out what it becomes. Don't they become they being they will become a it's kind of like, I don't know if it's a moth or I believe it's a moth that they become. Wanted me the pollen. We yes, I did. Thank you for reminding me because people don't realize it. And if I can remember them all right now, it's going to be great. But there are five Caterpillar is that are poisonous here. And one is the pus Caterpillar kind of looks like just a a tan colored half round Caterpillar, and they're kinda they feed on citrus trees and high biscuits trees, and if you if you don't do this. But if you pet them one direction. You have no problem at all. If you pet them the opposite direction underneath those little fine. Tan hairs are what they call satay S S E T A E, and these satay there's hundreds of them break in each and every one is the equivalent of a like a wasp sting. Okay. And it is these are poisonous some people can react very very badly to these. And they're very very common landscape. So I, you know, a lot of people be weeding or they'll be trimming their bushes, and they'll brush up against one of these guys, and they get this huge streak on arms. And what the heck happened, you know, and some people can have allergic reaction. So you got to be very very careful when you are in the landscape number one, you've got to be able to identify the Caterpillar and the pasta and the hag Moffat Caterpillar are to that. Just they they kind of blend into the foliage. So there's the pus Caterpillar the hag off hag moth, Caterpillar, then there's the eye Caterpillar. Oh my gosh. I'm running out of caterpillars to more the past the hag marks the I'll there's two others that are poisonous as well in our area. All these are located in our area and all poisonous. So just things that we have to be aware of while we are out in the garden. Now, how can you kill them? People say, well, how do I get rid of 'em? How do I get rid of them? While the only way to get rid of them is by spraying your foliage plants with either a product that only kills Caterpillar like Diepen, Arthur aside or you can use a product like by fence threatened, but don't put that on an edible crop. You only put that on foliage plants. So those those I when I remember the names of the other ones, they'll come to me in a minute. So I don't I'm not gonna look them up while we're on here here. So. Those are ones you have to be aware of. All right. Linda. They're very. Gorgeous. The more you want to stay away from the another one just came to me, it's called the saddleback Caterpillar saddleback, Caterpillar, so I'm just missing one now. Just missing one one in there somewhere. It'll come out. I need to go. See my mother saw. All right. And Linda, what will pray for your mother? Thank you. All right. Thank you very much. All right. Bye. Bye..

"Last few days boeing excuse me caterpillar caterpillar probably one of the worst hip caterpillar creates heavy machinery that competes with other heavy machinery companies around the world but there's not very many of them now in fact each one of those companies companies almost represents it's country yeah for its heavy equipment manufacturing although i know that there's other there's john deere and so on that produce heavy equipment here in the us caterpillar today was really deeply affected by this not only because they're used to steal but further neither reason which is when we see the tariffs being applied it strengthens the us dollar because in theory the dollar becomes less plentiful more valuable it goes up against other world currencies so caterpillar actually got hit with a one to smack with this type of a tariff and remember their large employers and it goes deep through the economy where you go all the way back down to energy production that caterpillar uses to produce the heavy equipment so when i'm looking at this i'm thinking about not just caterpillar but let's think about all those support companies that also support that company should this really matter to you that much in my opinion the answer's no but then i hear nate shelman talking about it saying listen i'm just a small guy amateur investor and i think he represents the majority of us right we hear the headlines markets are off the tariffs are awful or they're great whatever it is that you think about it but those are the two that were connected today so how do we perceive this well my perception on this one is that most of you have probably half of your investment accounts represented by these large cap stocks and i would say less than half of that is represented by these companies that are greatly affected by the tariffs you're probably didn't go down by one percent today my guess is that your accounts when you looked at it and you've got bonds mixed in and all these other things you probably saw an account loss today that was probably less than half of one percent if you're allocated well so should you be greatly concerned not over today's market activity.

"Miss out on coming to get into some really good tips for you today now let's get started this was another interesting week and in fact we saw the bond market selloff and the bottom has been pretty cozy and comfortable for a while but not this week in fact tuesday we had the ten year treasury finally touch the three percent level and everyone's been talking about that like it was gloom and doom and certainly in the bond market started to sell off because of that this isn't the first time the ten year hit three percent since two thousand fourteen in the dow that day didn't like it at all as tuesday went down four hundred twenty four points again another big day on the downswing and we keep seeing these sort of things and the bond market you know had a tough day as well so people started talking they start saying well is this is this peak earnings are we seeing the the best of the companies right now all the reporting it's really good we've all seen great earnings this week but is this it you know is this the end of the cycle and so what happened tuesday as well as caterpillar caterpillar said this was the best earnings they've seen for some time and that they felt that despite they're huge earnings that this was pretty much it as far as you know those sort of numbers so the market didn't particularly like that and said wow that's a that's a warning sign that we should be little more tentative about all this enthusiasm it's been building up add to that the rising wage cod inflation and so people are saying well it's gonna put a squeeze on profits as we wind through this season and you had the consumer staple stocks hitting all time lows so for the week the dow was off one hundred and fifty one point that was clearly the big loser for the week s and p five hundred down point two three percent not a big deal the nasdaq was off point three seven again not a big deal and this was partly driven by some good news from the tech stocks that have been kind of language and we had amazon you've probably all heard the big news about amazon they had amazing prophets in fact their profits doubled i mean that's incredible new revenues just continue to accelerate the stock just for the week.

"Shares of companies that could be most penalized if there is some sort of trade war retaliation from trump looking at caterpillar shares which are declining as well as boeing caterpillar shares are currently down more than two percent boeing shares also declining by about two percent and i'm wondering how much of the negative tone we're seeing in the markets today dave from your perspective really stems from trade concerns it's a big piece of the puzzle there's nothing new about sort of the issues that have been raised in the idea that china has not shall we say treated intellectual property with the care and attention the us companies would like i mean that's been out there for some time now you kind of get this back and forth we'll see what the president trump has to say about all this in terms of what kind of restrictions may be put in place clearly though if you're a us company doing business with china the situation is changing and you have to be prepared for what's going to happen next and we're certainly seeing that in the reaction that you mentioned with caterpillar and boeing you're talking about two companies that do a fair amount of business in emerging markets in general and china in particular so it's understandable that they would be kind of front and center in all of this talk about china and boeing china southern airlines said it's going to purchase thirty boeing seven three seven max narrow body aircraft they already operate i believe german which was going to use the new airplanes that is a division of china southern they already own more than one hundred and sixty boeing aircraft so it's going to be a little bit of a challenge if you think that they're just going to stop buying boeing aircraft because of a trade dispute they still have a significant number whether it's this airline or any other airline they have a significant number of aircraft that are boeing manufactured and also you know a lot of the parts that go into a variety of aircraft whether that's boeing or airbus they could be made by companies in the united states so it's an integrated supply chain so perhaps it integrated response to a tariff may not be as as pernicious as as analysts have said some be by perhaps not i mean that's one side of.
