I will have all the links available for people but yeah it's really awesome to see some of my favorite botanical institutions early scientific institutions. I realized the field museum does much more than botany. But you yourself are a paleobotanist. And where did that all begin. I mean we're you into fossils as a child or did you just kind of discover your pass along the way through botany and then decided to look towards the past to kind of understand where diversity is today botanically. Yeah so i've I i did grow with an interest in fossils also had a real interesting archaeology actually as a teenager in high school and i was interested. In how archaeologists were able to construct pasta environments mainly through Pollen analysis allow a but also analysis of other plant remains and then that kind of led me to go a little deeper in time with a with an evolutionary perspective rather than necessarily more ecological perspective and so when i was looking at college i chose reading university because they had a long tradition in petty. And that was one of the things that i that i wanted to study.

Covid-related fraud has cost Americans $382 million
"Passed recently by Congress extends payments for the unemployed people get an extra $300 per week until September. Welcome news for those out of work and also for criminals Last year, identity thieves stole billions and unemployment relief. And the added money in the system Ants to the risk of fraud. Here's NPR's Martin Castillo. Scale of last year's fraud was mind blowing. The estimates of total losses started $63 billion California loan lost at least 11 billion In the early weeks of covert relief. Washington State was one of the first to realize that it had been sending hundreds of millions of dollars out the door to identity thieves. Suzi Levine was the state's employment security commissioner at the time. They came with Million's of profiles on Americans that they had captured over years from data breaches lying in wait For this moment, there was a crisis an enormous amount of money, and I need to get that money out quickly. So one year into the pandemic is this kind of fraud still happening? It's not nearly to the volume at the very beginning. No March April may of last year, but it is still very steady. Crane hassled is with a cyber security company called a gari, which tracks the foreign gangs that are behind a lot of this. The gang's passed around cheat sheets for duping various state unemployment systems. And they raped the states like so many hot slot machines. Unfortunately, most of the states are still being shown as paying out at least some of the time and the gangs also keep a close eye on the news. A lot of the chatter in this gaming communities today is about the new round of stimulus that's coming out and how essentially that's going to be another no free for all. The main explanation here for all the fraud last year was the rush to get money to people fast as the pandemic took hold. States suddenly had to start paying benefits to freelancers and gig workers. People who don't have former bosses who you could reach out to to verify their claims. Tom cost is
Expanding your business organically - Eli Crane of Bottle Breacher
"My name is eli korean. And i'm the founder and ceo of bottle bottlebuster. We are a veteran owned made in the usa brand operating out of tucson arizona. I started this company in a one car garage in san diego. California with my wife jen. Who's also still my partner. We specialize in personalized man gifts in borrower. Some of your audience might of seen us on the abc hit television. Show shark tank in two thousand fourteen on the veterans day special win. We went on the show. We had about five employees and now we have between thirty five and forty five. Depending on the time of year basically our goal is to build the biggest baddest made in the usa that are known brand in the world. And it's pretty cool because of this last year forbes actually ranks us as the thirteenth in the top twenty five military or veteran owned companies in the united states. So we're getting close in. We're halfway there but we still got a lot of work to do. And so we're excited about the future. And so are you still in san diego now. No we're actually operating at a tucson arizona move there. I was exiting the navy and i was getting out of the military and my wife is actually from tucson and a lot of people that are in small business in california. I know that there's a lot of regulation in california. That's why a lot of small businesses are flocking out of there in droves. And so we were looking for a less regulated climate to start. Our small business in arizona was fit to hit on what you do today kind of where you started from the beginning there but how about before you started the company. How like backtrack into getting out of high school. Kind of your quick from there to where you are today. yeah absolutely. There was nothing quick about my journey. It was filled with a lot of adversity and also a lot of failure. And i think this is something that needs to be talked about. You know routinely and often with the entrepreneurship. I think that failure is probably the biggest lesson in. That's where most of the gold in life really lies. And i think that's what separates a lot of successful entrepreneurs from those that aren't successful. Is that successful. Entrepreneurs learn to look at failure in a completely different light. We don't look at it as something bad and something that we need to stay away from. We look it as just cause of doing business and we'd look at it and we actually welcome it because we know that that's were really gonna find the real lessons and figure out what doesn't work what does work. And so as a matter of fact. When i was getting out of high school i barely graduated from high school. Because honestly i really didn't care about what was going on. My family was getting blown up at the time. My parents were going through a really rough divorce. And i honestly thought that football was gonna be my ticket out and i found out the hard way. That wasn't good enough to really play anywhere. So i started doing a lotta searching took a lot of side jobs and i really wanted to go into the military because from the time i was a little boy i had a heart to serve and i love this country and i wanted to serve this country and so pretty much everybody in my circle that i saw as an adviser advise me to go into if i was going to go into the military to go in as an officer and so they all told me that i needed to go to college so i started taking classes in criminal justice at arizona western college in yuma arizona and then after i finished my associates there i transferred to the university of arizona in studying criminology. But they didn't have that major at the university of arizona. And so i would have had to get put into the business college which i applaud foreign didn't even get into is ironic that his and so. I started taking classes in sociology. Because i found that it was the easiest path to me getting a degree in the military really. Didn't care what my degree was in. They just wanted to know that. I could stick it out for four years and so started studying sociology and then nine eleven happened at the start of my senior year and i actually left college for the navy the very next week to join the seal teams and unfortunately you don't just join the teams you have to try out. And it's it's the most rigorous training in the department of defense. And so i actually made a big mistake and i trained to the bare minimum and as soon as i could do the bare minimums that were required to just get into to get a shot to go to seal training. I actually applied in went down there and joined and you. That's been a good lesson for me in you know in failure because it didn't work out for me. I actually went to seal. Training actually made it through the toughest part assailed training which is called hell week. It's actually front into week four and it's basically live and a half days of staying awake the whole time and just getting your butt kicked is your cold wet and miserable and made it through that week but a week and half later i was dropped from training. I gotta performance drop in. So they sent me out to the navy for two and a half years and that was one of the biggest eye opening lessons in my life. And it's one that i always cherished just because when you go into something. That's that big in that intense with kind of half ass mentality. Those are usually get half ass. Results are usually fail. And it's been so valuable for me moving on just to remember the pain and having to take ownership of that failure because it was one hundred percent my fault and so it's been really good for me moving into other things and i went out to a ship for two and a half years. And then i got an opportunity to come back to seal trainings in two thousand and four made it straight through with class two five six and in mid two thousand five. I became a navy seal and i spent nine. Years is a seal and in my last two years in the navy. I started this company. Bob during that one car garage san diego. While i was an instructor and i don't have a fancy nba. I don't even have a business degree. But what i do have is in my opinion a phd from the school of hard knocks. And i think that's the most important thing that you can have as an entrepreneur as just having a phd in being resilient because as an entrepreneur you will get knocked down every single day. You will run into problem after problem after problem. And if you don't know how to get back up in constantly move forward then you're not going to be business long. Well i mean talking about the transition when you started the company when you're still in the navy what kinda inspired your made. You want to end up doing that. Well it was my wife in two little girls that inspired me to do that honestly. If i didn't have a family at the time. I probably would have got out of the navy taking a breath and traveled around europe for six months or a year. But that wasn't in the cards for me. Because i had responsibilities. I had mouse defeat and bills to pay so i was doing whatever i could to take care of my family and that kind of look like in this is important to talk about to just so the entrepreneurs that are listening to this. Podcast understand the sacrifice that it's gonna take you know. I was working a fulltime job in the navy. If you could even call it. A job is way more of intense career in the navy where i would instruct other seals all day long sometimes late into the night and then i would come home. I would help my wife as much as i could with the kids and then i would go out into the garage late at night. Early in the morning fulfill all the orders for today making all the bottom breaches and my wife she would go to the computer and handle customer service marketing men accounting so in. We did this for two years. There were no weekends. there were no summer vacations. I mean we busted our asses for two years to stand this thing up and even at that point it got crazier because at that point we went on shark tank and that sacrifices so importance in it's also you know we also grew this business organically which is something i love to talk about just because i feel it so if you're able to do it. Some companies are unable to do. But if you're able to do it. I think it's so important that you try and grows organic as possible for as long as possible just for many reasons one. Because it you have to learn the business from the ground up. Nobody's pumping capital into nobody's pumping capital into you and it. You know it. Also if we know that the biggest enemy that we have usually as running out of cash and that's li- businesses fell every single day more commonly than any other reason growing organically pretty much eliminates that. Because if you can't afford something if you don't have the money in your business account for something you don't buy it. It's just that
All About Crane's Critter Care
"We are back we are doing a new segment where we bring on a small business owner so we can talk a little bit about their business about what they do. What kind of issues or problems. They've come up. Come against in starting in running a business. You know maybe business during kobe and whatever comes up and so right now we have with us gen from cranes critter care john. Thanks for joining us for the first small business segment. Thank you so much for inviting us into i actually chow four chinchilla friends with me this ursula one thing. That's a little bit different about further care. Is we go far beyond just captain dogs. We do all sorts of exotic whether it's earned small mammals sarmiento reptiles anything because we have so many people that have pets chats dogs in. I noticed when i was working at the ap l. That was a big issue. People were having was not being For anything other than just basing cat dog or if they had animal what medical issues. So that's one thing that Critter cares able to do is we can do animals with medical issues whether that be needing shots multiple times a day medications multiple times a day. We can do dogs or cats with behavioral issues. That could normally go to a kennel or normal. Dog sitter whether it be sonic stranger danger or anything bats. We also work with harder cheeses. I personally love the challenges in house. Seven years experience were sheltered in animals because training shelter. Animal is so much different than training in that. You thought from the pet store in today's nickel company though. It's just a little bit different methods of going about things but it's been really great overall. We've had to change a lot of cova right. And that's one thing. This kind of bennett trick is as cova comes up each month. We have to kind of a daft. Do whatever we see that customers are looking for whether if the people going out of town so that increase number of training sessions of we noticed people wanting more medical care people wanting more educational seminars. So whatever people are looking for cranes critter cares filling in that gap and just go with the flow of were covance. Add in what people are meeting with as far as animal care. So where would you say you start. Sounds like such an amazing and valiant effort that you're doing especially for individuals in the community. You're almost like an immeasurable acid because through You're still trying to push still trying to make sure that the animal care is first and foremost so what pushed you into his avenue this world so i actually started adding animal shelter as a veterinarian assistant. I was there for four years and then i switched to another shelter as their main foster four nader doing educational seminars. And that's one of the biggest issues i noticed was i was in the intake department where people would surrender. Animals in have issues in a big thing is lack of education whether it be their animal has issued. They don't know how to properly train or fix it. So then immediately playbay. Just surrender or their four hours a day. Don't have anyone to let them out in the they don't have time to have an animal or someone passed away or moved out there. Sheila left behind. They have no idea how to take care of. It can shallow surrender over and it's one of those things where the more education were able to provide the public a lot. More people keep animals in their homes. Take better care of their animals. It makes a better relationship between the owner of pet in more animals. Just stay healthy happy home. So it's a little bit of keeping animals out of the shelter keeping almond good conditions just for improve quality of life for everyone right. Yeah no so. I wanted to actually ask about something along those same lines. Since we've been going through cova. This is something that we touched on. In in one of my classes actually we were talking about Pharmaceuticals and medications for animals versus for people Was he was business of biology through. You're talking about big pharma quite a bit but you know one of the things that came up is that there's different right if you have a life threatening disease or disorder. You're probably more likely to get that medication than you would. For a life threatening disease or disorder for an animal or at least some people are so along those same lines of what you were talking about. One thing that i was hoping to kind of get out there. One thing i think that needs saying is i'm sure that lots of people bought a new animal because the kobe right. You're locked up. You're stuck at home. You need a buddy someone. Yeah but that said tat. I'm slightly concerned that we're gonna see a big christmas dump ejup fact at the end of covid right where everyone is like. Well now. we're back at work now. We're back at school now. We're busy now. We don't have any time and so well. We have to get rid of the animals. So i guess i wanted to kick it over to jenin. Just see what you thought about that. Do you think that phenomenon is going to happen once we quote unquote get back to normal and like what could you say to pet owners. That currently do have their pet that you know maybe thinking of doing something like that so i completely agree and that's something even when i felt the shelter we talked about with so many people now that they're working from home temporarily were adopting animals but they're not thinking in the future a lot of those times so that's one thing during summer especially i focused on was doing seminars in different on how to prevent separation anxiety. That's gonna be one of the issues as well with on people getting poppies. The puppies are missing to people being home all day leaving for maybe two hours tops and all of a sudden you're drastically or changing their schedule their way of life pretty much by being gone nine ten hours a day. That's going to have a lot of issues with separation. Anxiety being the biggest one and then i see a lot of people once that happens to run around to shelters reasonable surrender.
The History of Animal Trials
"According to author ep evans in the criminal persecution and capital punishment of animals. There were two types of animal. Trials are strengthen and their process. Their straw phin were for capital crimes. Which would warrant the death penalty. I e homicide usually committed by pigs horses and other larger domesticated animals which were presided. Over by a secular tribunal. Their processor were judicial proceedings in ecclesiastical courts against vermin like rats mice locusts and weevils the object being to spell the vermin from the orchards. Vineyards and croplands. They were eating by means of exile extra schism or excommunication in sixteen fifty. Four sentences were handed down against of locusts in a spanish obvious. Santamaria the last sentence calling for the locusts excommunication and in order for them to leave the region in the next fourteen hours bishop alonzo de madrid excommunicated another plague of locusts condemning them to confinement in a cave and a bishop in cordova excommunicated a flock of swallows that had set up shop inside their parish. These were at best here. Eric victories just to make the people feel better. While evans's book lists nearly two hundred such cases the animals in their process cases never really seemed bothered by the ruling domestic animals. Barely listen to us. What do we expect. The wild wants to do either way. It was thought to be important that the animals have day in court. Why not just exterminate the offending critters. We're pretty good at that. Since even weevils and rats were considered god's creatures the destruction they caused must also have been part of the plan so destroying them would be an act against god's will but if the animals were tried in a church court and excommunicated or otherwise condemned then it was kind of okay for example in the fourteen eighties. The cardinal bishop of autun in france ruled against some slugs that were ruining the estate grounds under his purview. Ordered that for three days announcements be made to the slugs that they were to leave the area or be cursed. They didn't leave so it was game on for the gardeners to get rid of them. On purely legal side of things were the cases against livestock typically for murder. Apparently pigs are just mad for murder at least when it comes to humans and most cases involved them eating the victim whole or in part. This was a time when both animals and children might freely roam through fields and streets and accidents did happen. Pigs may not eat everything as people think but they will taste everything and god help you. If they find out your made of meat it reminds me of a bit from zora. Neale hurston story where the family sow gets into the kitchen where toddlers zora is alone and her mother panics. Even though the sal was less interested in eating. Mrs hurston baby than the other way around evans describes one fairly typical case from thirteen. Seventy nine in which two herds of swine were feeding together. When suddenly three pigs became agitated and charged the swine. Master's son who died from his injuries. All of the pigs from both herds were tried and fort after due process of law were condemned to death on appeal. All but the three instigating piggies were later pardoned. The courts really do seem to have put effort to try animals in the same way they would humans which is less woke than it. Sounds when you remember how readily the death sentence was handed out in those days. I've never tried to hang a pig. But given their incredibly muscular necks. I imagine it doesn't go easily. Also high ranking in the crimes animals could be charged with was bestiality. Although those cases were usually known to go in the animals favor both the human and the animal might be put to death but sometimes the case could be made that the animal was not at fault as it didn't consent to participate in the act so it wasn't punished if they were convicted. The animal might actually be imprisoned with the human who got them in the mess in the first place. In those cases the owner of the animal was charged for the animals care and feeding as a sort of second hand punishment for as much as. I'd like to say that animal. Trials are brutish fossil symbolic of a decayed era gratefully forgotten and i've got stickers for anyone who can identify that movie quote without googling it cases persistently pop up even in more recent times in tennessee in nineteen sixteen. An elephant named. Mary murdered her trainer. The strangest verse of the cell block tango ever and was hanged with crane in nigeria. In two thousand nine a goat was arrested. After a mob of vigilantes told police it was a shape shifting car thief no word on how that case turned out of all the creatures critters and creepy crawlies that plagued late medieval france. None could hold a candle to the weevil ricochets artists not to be confused with the palmetto. Weevil rinca forests fabricius the largest weevil species. You might say are. Eras is the lesser of two evils. Working the first complaint against the insects was made by a group of grape growers in fifteen forty five which resulted in a proclamation for the public to atone for their sins in hopes that the weevils would leave and it worked a generation later though the weevils returned and the town was forced to take them to court lawyer. Antoine filial was appointed the weevils public defender after all. It's hard to carry cash in carapace. So they reason. The weevils wouldn't be able to pay for representation feel argued that his clients had been placed on earth by god along with the food that they needed to survive. And it wasn't the bugs fault at that food happened to belong to some local farmers. The prosecution who i will picture being played by sam waterston and his glorious eyebrows contended that animals are meant to be subordinate to man and the weevils towing the line. The villagers believed their sins. Brought the pests. But the pests were part of god's plan but but humans are supposed to have dominion over animals so they should be able to do with them as they darn well please this back and forth. Stalemate is the central theological paradox of animal trials. Maybe i'll recast the da as linus roache.

The united states was making the transition from the mercury program to the gemini program and there really wasn't allowed manned spaceflight going on that year but there was another amazing exploration going on in interspace natwest project lab. One well i didn't know a great deal about c. lab until i started doing some research for the segment. I did hear on the show about scott carpenter. I did read. Ben held hells worst book about c. lab and that gave me a really good understanding of the magnitude of the entire c. Lab project both one two and three.

It's not that long to sixty two pages now. The copy. I got had a stamp on the cover. Then indicated. hard copies of the report would cost three dollars while microfiche would be seventy five cents and the copy was also stamped. Archived copy of this report are ha o.'neil from the office of navel research. Gif bond captain united states navy from the united states naval medical research. Laboratory are eland. Fear lieutenant commander. Us n. office of navel research and t odum of the mind defense laboratory in the preface pen by rear admiral. Leighton he says project sea lab one was the navy's first step into space. He also states that this report is being published by the navy so that all may share the information it is interesting to note that the background section of the report the authors do reference the work being done by captain shot cousteau and mr edwin a link and that was on their man in the sea concept they they stated indeed. The navy seems to be left at the post by the well-publicized efforts of captain cousteau and mr link. So it sounds like there's a little bit of sour grapes. Their report goes on to describe a december nineteen sixty three conference with the navy's bureau of ships where they obtained support for a c. lab now at that conference. They decided that the mine defense laboratory would build a habitat needed to select a location and they had five critique criteria for the selection one was the prospect of good weather too was good visibility. Three was a level bottom for was moderate water. Temperatures at depth and five was the general features of ocean graphic and marine biology biological interest. Now the site that they selected was argus island off of bermuda by march of nineteen sixty four all the appropriate approvals were obtained and they were often running and the operations were supposed to be conducted in the summer of one thousand nine hundred sixty four now. The mine defense laboratory selected an old experimental minesweeping float. Now the report has quite a few pictures and illustrations in it. Unfortunately the pictures are really not that great because of this. Pdf being produced either from a microphone. Show old old dot copiers but the stations are pretty good. Particularly the architectural drawings of c. lab won both the plan view and the cross section views by marched by may nineteen sixty four. C. lab was ready for sea trials off panama city. Florida on may twenty second nineteen sixty four. It was towed out to sea and sank uncontrolled and flooded over half full of seawater. Fortunately there were no injuries. The habitat was lifted. Towed back dried out and ready for another try on may twenty six this time with success. The previous incident was attributed to a misunderstanding of line handling waters by july. They were in bermuda and ready to sink. C. lab on july fourteenth. They again had issues because of the three to five foot swells and the yard patrol boat that they were using just wasn't powerful enough like chief brody said in jaws. I think you're gonna need a bigger boat. Well in this case. It was a crane that they took from bermuda. The reach the report details the adventure of getting c. lab on the bottom but they finally did an after getting everything hooked up and twenty four hour checkout on monday july twentieth. One thousand nine hundred sixty four at seventeen thirty five. That's five thirty five pm for you. Civilians c. lab one was manned by robert e. less anderson robert a barth sanders w manning and robert e thompson. Now what were the conditions like on c. lab interesting. The report says see lab proper dry inhabitable atmosphere satisfactory temperatures. Seventy eight degrees chilly. Water supply water not available heaters operable. Tv monitor not hooked up properly. Hot water heaters not operating refrigerator not operating co two scrubbers satisfactory. Electro writer. Satisfactory calibrated microphones not functioning. Crass burgo two meters satisfactory lights satisfactory. So you can see. There was still a lot of things that needed to be repaired. So i had to do was fixed everything that wasn't working and then complete their mission so in part to this series i'll take you through the mission the findings and conclusions from project sea lab some report of nineteen sixty five americas first journey into interspace.

How The Covid Shock Nearly Destroyed The Financial System
"A year ago. Today we reduced stock market exposure and credit risk in the money for the rest of us plus adaptive model portfolios overall investment conditions were downgraded to read or bearish for the first time since money for the rest of us plus was launched back in december twenty fourteen economic trends have been read for nine straight months but with the uncertainty of the coronavirus and the sharp deterioration of market trends and mark momentum with very high fear among investors. We reduced risk. We took preventive action in the face of uncertainty. We weren't exactly sure what was going on. How bad it could get this past week. I read three government reports the report of the president's working group on financial markets overview of recent events and potential reform options for money market funds was published december. Twenty twenty i read. Us credit markets interconnectedness and the effects of the covid economic shock published by the us security and exchange commission published in october twenty twenty and i read the financial stability report published by the us federal reserve in november two thousand twenty after reading the reports. I was frankly alarmed about how bad things could have gotten had the federal reserve not stepped in in their role as lender and liquidity provider of last resort without the fed and other central banks. There would have been a full-blown financial meltdown. Things had gotten that bad. Even in the safest areas of the market money market funds the trading of us treasury bonds. Then there is an interconnectedness in markets from the riskiest to the safest. That isn't an appreciated. I had an experience. This past week with interconnectedness. It was kind of a bizarre experience and my fault. The prone i had a drive to whitewater draw north douglas arizona in agua prieta mexico. We were there to see the sandhill cranes we decided to take a socratous route on the way back through sierra vista and as i drove through sierra vista i didn't notice that the state route we on turned right i went straight right up to the gate of four. What chuka active. Us army base. I told the guy that gate that we were traveling to tucson passing through. He said we would need a permit to enter the base. I thought i clarified. In order to get the tucson. I needed to go through the base. And he said if you don't go through the base you're going to have to go all the way around and by all the way around. I assume he meant all the way around route. One ninety one. Like we'd come from whitewater draw. I said well. How do i get a permit. And he says you you can get that in this building. And he pointed to it so he drove around went to the building. We started filling out this extensive form. We had to go be processed one at the time so i went up to the counter. I told him you're trying to get to tucson. Needed a permit to get onto the base. He asked why so we were just passing through and it says we don't just pass through military bases. You're going to the west gate. Any changed my form to say. We're going to the west gate but he did an entire background check on me. Took my picture gave me an id and as part of that asks will be coming back and kid all the trouble to actually get a permit to pass through the base in order to get the tucson. That's make this permit as long as possible. We both got our permits. We drove into the base started driving around and trying to find the west gate to get out until we get the tucson. We couldn't find it. We kept driving in circles and again we finally pulled up our map on our phones and on the gps and it kept directing us out of the base through the gate that we came in. Like you said. I missed the turn. We didn't even need to be on the base in this situation. Everybody was just doing their job. I was trying to get home. The guy at the gate was trying to process people. The guy in the building was giving out permits lane in their silo. Everybody hearing but not listening. And not recognizing the interconnectedness that led to an unwanted outcome. I didn't need a permit to get onto the base. I was just trying to get home. And there was a miscommunication. The financial markets are similar participants act in their own self interest. They stay in their lane and often don't realize how financial markets are connected actions by some investors impact actions by others when participants act in a similar way that causes systemic risk. That can lead to financial meltdowns
Jigar Shah Explains His New Role as Director of the US Energy Loan Programs Office
"Let's just start with the news. I mean what are you going into government to do. What is the loan programs office. Functionally help us wrap our heads around. What your role will be well. We've talked a long time about the role of the private sector and how much the private sector can do to ramp up these solutions But i think we've also acknowledged that the federal government has to have a large and important role in order to really get to what we all say. We wanna do right. Which right now is to reduce carbon emissions by fifteen percent per year right to reduce carbon emissions by fifty percent by twenty thirty and so the loan programs office does a small piece of that right. I mean the federal government is large and has many programs but the loan programs office basically is this bridge to bankability. I think it's most famous for Clearly the tessalone but the other thing. I think it's most famous for is providing. Many many loan guarantees for wind and solar projects in two thousand nine twenty ten when frankly wall street banks did not believe that. Wind and solar utilities projects were bankable. I mean they were so skeptical of wind and solar projects. Being bankable if you remember sunpower and first even with the loan program office guarantees had to sell their projects At a much lower price than they thought they could get to warren buffett in twenty thirteen because he was the only one that was buying and he made you know twenty plus percent returns on those projects. David crane bought one number at energy. It wasn't until probably twenty fourteen that you started to see the that bridge to bankability actually get completed and solar and wind projects being fully embraced by private-sector capital and so my sense is that we need to build you know a hundred more of those bridges for technologies that many of us actually already thinker mature. But you know aren't being treated that

Kate discovered an unexpected ticket out of town gesture of this old buick that his parents had given him <hes>. The had like pita stickers on the back of it. I remember one day us driving in the car and him playing a cassette on the tape deck and i loved what whatever was on this stereo. I had such a sense of inferiority about jess. I remember trying to play it cool and being like oh is a. Are you listening to you to like. And he was like no. That's that's the hated. And i was like they hated hated and <hes>.

And so i started to go to shows with just a man eventually found my own group of friends and and the dc punk scene became my life for the next few years. It's tempting for me and hearing that the way that you've been talking about a lot of this stuff to imagine that this music. That was such an open conduit to like motion like talking about the hard thing so i can imagine. That must have been really appealing. Was that the draw. yes and also <hes>. The the punk scene in the nineties had a lot of different branches and some bands were very much about fashion that being in the scene <hes>. But then there was this whole other side of it that was explicitly political and the politics were very very feminist and cultural phenomenon. Called riot girl. I was part of that so you had bands that are fairly well known bikini. Kill and sleater kinney fan super dyke bands like team d- rush and hardcore feminists bans bit. Boy i really develop a sense of self as a woman through the feminism in that music scene in the mid nineties. A lot of kids in the punk scene were converging on washington. Dc neighborhood called mount pleasant which incidentally is possibly the least punk name imaginable around this time. Kate sprint brad. Told her about a group house. In mount pleasant called positive force it had been established by local author and activist named mark anderson and mark looked at the house and even by the time i lived there like one hundred and fifty people had lived in that house. Cates run brad. Was one of those one hundred and fifty people and he had a word of caution for kate as she was considering. Moving in a positive force. Brad said to me if you need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night you have to jump from the door frame to the toilet because if you step on the floor you'll go plunging down to hook shot. And he wasn't joking so it was very rickety but this <hes> ground-floor room had opened up. And i think it was my first time living away from my mother's house. I had this fairytale belief that punk could be family and that <hes>. Like i had found. I had found a family cates early days in the punk scene. Were going great. She had an internship in dc. She was going to shows at night with her friends and volunteering at an anarchist bookshop. But before long things took a turn at some point in like winter of ninety five. I wasn't showing up at my internship anymore and <hes>. Essentially didn't get out of bed for three months. I stopped eating. And i slept all the time <hes>. All this time later. I still get edgy.

"Welcome back to family ghosts. Our story today begins in nineteen eighty-seven just outside baltimore maryland. Kate crane was twelve years old living in the suburbs with her mom her younger sister and her dad. Eddie the thing. I always think about with me and my father was that we drove together. I went to work with him. A lot and his business was in curtis bay which is a very industrial part of baltimore. And you would drive up a little drive and it was tucked away so it was like this secluded place in an already secluded place and when you got up there there were trucks everywhere. Like trucks. Parkinson's chuck pieces and Piles of truck parts. Like i actually remember mountains of like little chuck part volcanoes. We both loved music.

"More importantly in two thousand eighteen l. a. p. d. detective from the robbery homicide division requested that evidence including fingerprints be because in early may two thousand eighteen. A finger specialist contacted that detective to tell him that. There is a new forensic technique that might allow them to extract fingerprints from the steering wheel. Barry's cadillac and they did that so in early july the specialist was able to match one of the fingerprints. To set on the automated fingerprint. Identifying system the prince belong to a fifty one year old man named edwin hiatt. This is like who the police tract house through facebook and verizon to north carolina and then they asked the fbi to keep him under surveillance. Yeah the fbi set up really a very extensive surveillance operation and they watched high at live his life in connelly springs north carolina. A small town about fifty miles north west of charlotte. It's named after william louis connolly. Who was a captain.

Just about seventeen hundred. People live their high at worked at a place called second chance auto repair shop it. While under surveillance he tossed cigarette butts and also disposable coffee cups into the parking lot so these were able to be collected. Yes so the cigarette butts and coffee cup collected from hiatt were process to create his dna profile then. Cigarette butts found in berries car after his murder were used to create a deny dna profile of the killer then on january fourteenth two thousand nineteen. It was announced that the two samples matched so that's kind of miraculous. I would think then they give an used. Yeah not only that. They still had those cigarette butts but the able to get dna offer them right right. It's amazing it is less than two months later. Lapd detectives travelled to north carolina and interviewed him now. I don't know why they waited that long. They don't know why they just didn't go and arrest him at that point but according to the lapd press release he had now admitted to killing carey crane sell. It'll be interesting to see and hear what hiatt said to the lapd detectives because when he was led into court he told reporters totally different story.

"But berry did much better by winning two pairs championships and finishing second in another so before the start of the concluding that berry trailed skolnick by forty one points in for him to snatch an incredible last minute victory. He needed to win the event and skolnick head to play badly but he did play badly. Still though buried didn't win. So skolnick won the mckinney trophy collecting almost twenty five hundred master points which was the second highest total ever and barry finished behind having broken his own personal best so he wasn't happy he wasn't but he play really well. Now after the nineteen eighty one season very continued to play in tournaments on a regular basis but his work schedule prohibited him from making a successful run at the mckinney his busy directing episodes of chips and trapper john md but regardless he continued to dominate the bridge. Soon he finished third in the mckinney in nineteen eighty three and second in nineteen eighty-four so he might be cutting back a little bit. Pia still force so was july. Fourth nineteen eighty five and berry was in pasadena competing in the bridge week. Regional tournament berry was part of a four person team. Poised to win this tournament. he'd also played a two session. Pair game with billie miller who was a silver life master in bridge bulletin columnists so at the end of the day berry invited miller and his ex wife to dinner at a restaurant nearby. They drove with berry in his car but when they got to. The restaurant berry excused himself saying he wasn't feeling well but before he left. Barry was seen making a call on the phone. They're your the next day. July fifth berries team was ready. But he wasn't there waiting for him to arrive. His absence created an immediate murmur amongst players because his team was right. They're ready to win the tournament. He would not show up. Where was he by the players at the tournament. Waiting for berry. His housekeeper arrived at three o'clock in the afternoon. Clean his townhouse. In studio city the housekeeper entered the front door on the second level and notice a trail of blood on the stairs leading to the bedroom on the third floor she followed the trail very wasn't in the bedroom. Now would you follow the trail. I i'm not like it's her husband or something because the police he goes in there she sees a trail of blood and she goes upstairs. That's just not too smart. Nope you don't know what's going on up there. The bedroom certainly contained signs of struggle. There is a large bloody ceramic vase lying on the floor. There was blood on the floor. Bedding was missing from the bed yet. The housekeeper persisted them so she followed at. This blood trail backed down the stairs to the street lowell garage and there she found berry or berries body nude and wrapped in sheets so the police found no sign of forced entry or of the house being ransacked. The only missing items they could identify were berries wallet and his cadillac. So based on the bloodstains police believed berry was killed in his bedroom and then his body was dragged down to the garage. The bloody ceramic vase did look like it had been the murder weapon. 'cause he'd been bludgeoned so according to the lapd there was no readily apparent. Motive for burys killing. I don't think stealing a wallet and a car could be motive. Sure ceo know why they didn't think that was a good enough motive. I know but they didn't know who did it. That's the problem no well. Police are investigating a crime scene. Word spread among the players in the bridge tournament. Berry crane was dead. The shock of this information was palpable and his absence created a problem because his team was short. a member. well god. I think that's the least of your worries. He's been murdered games..

"Machine. Now there is the six plays for five hundred yet. He may have been going that route. So it would be a little less but not significantly enough to make a difference to the number. I just said 20,000 yen. We're talking like let's say 18th or something like that. There is a savings there but the stuffed animal let's say I don't know what this this particular crane game was actually had in it the object. He was trying to get it would have been cheaper to buy that for the 20,000 yen. Probably could have bought multiple copies or versions of it instead of just continuing to play the game. So for me, I actually used to be really good dog catcher. And I think that's before they became completely automated and messed with an algorithm that can basically decide how often it pays out. This is a computer and the computer is programmed. It's a program to probably drop. Let's say 95% of the time. So even if you pick it up it'll hold on to it, but then it just releases slightly and then it falls down. I remember. A day where I want about four or five things and then I've never been able to replicate that and to my mind when it actually happened is they've changed the algorithm within the machine took make it harder so I can't win so I gave up. I stopped spending money on UFO catcher actually really enjoy. You have two catchers. This guy saying losing two hundred times in a row statistically is probably not possible. So he called the police and said this is a scam police had the staff do the crane game. This is top-level police work. This is this this is a show we need to have made a choice Game Center investigation. GCI not CSI the staff did it three hundred times and failed Every Time Imagine the pressure you're under you have two cops standing on either side of you and you had a a crane game over and over and over again until you went then they opened the window on the front of the machine and it's moved the toys to different positions and then the staff was able to win money. So that's when they stopped calling it a scam. It doesn't seem like anything happened an interesting thing. You don't know probably if you don't live in Japan if you're playing the crane games here. So let's say you pick something up and it falls down and back into virtually impossible position. You can call the staff over and say look, please make it fair again. They will open the cabinet reposition the toys and stuffed animals and stuff. So you have a fair chance. So this guy he played two hundred times in a row. And never asked the staff to come over and actually do this thing. That is very fair. So maybe he's a purist maybe the he thinks this is like the Dark Souls of crane games. And if he asks for help, he's off to get made fun of by his other crane game friends and and they're going to be like all you know, you gotta get good. But if you want to waste of police officers time, this investigation is pretty much up there. Because the result is either call for help you get the staff to put the toys in the better position or stop playing crane games. We had a story very similar to this a few months ago and it was about a guy who rented a car for a really long time and I'm getting arrested because he just bathed in return the car and he of course he had to pay millions of Yen. I went into what kind of car he could have bought for the same amount of Yen. This guy fifty eight year old man stayed at a hotel for 10 months..

You know always the Great Greg Governor and all that and had they had ju Jitsu classes. The gyms were the first thing to open and they have full-on Jiu jitsu classes. So yes I do. It's going to come back because it's a it's a talk about with everything is essential non essential. If we're human it's men it's like it's like happiness living you know. Yeah Yeah for mental health for so many benefits. The community people like we live in this big city with millions of people. But nobody's really connected so things are important for people to feel connected and for happiness you know and moving right all the things that we have there to stay healthy. You know this whole fighter. Flight thing everybody's talking about like you know the these fear things are up but nobody's talking about what they can do to make their immune system stronger their health right to if they do get some they get covert or they get something else that maybe it's even worse.

"crane" Discussed on Essential Craftsman Podcast
"Good well that wasn't the first video that Ron showed up. And we put a video up a couple of years ago from a that poetry model and And and Ron's in there and we made a video about hand signal so I recommend the viewers check that out if you WANNA see The specifics of the hand signals that we use there. Anything else to add or That might be interesting. Someone there could be a guy listening to this. Who Thinks. That's it crane. I AIN'T GONNA learn that I'm going to get my certification. I'm GONNA do it. It takes. How do you even start if somebody's thinking that right now well? They have schools that you can go to to learn how to other nets You can still learn on the job. The crane company that needs a basically an apprentice. An oiler right down. Yup Galea explain an oiler oilers usually like On the big crane. I've got an oiler those with me. He's a helper he's a helper and not necessarily a crane operator. But he's a lot most of them end up becoming crane operators because they said they helped you outriggers get set up and they get out of the back and then if they're hungry and if there are ten watching crane operators given more responsibility all the time we do this do this you got those outrigger pads. Set up about right. That's good all right now. No check to see if we're level going to read that chart tell me I'm doing that sort of thing. Maybe doing the hand signals if the guys on the ask a little different than when I started I started. They said dares to get go to pick this okay. Fine thanks for coming on. Ron Is really pleasure. And we'll have you back and hopefully we won't be doing another. Big Wall lifts quite like that ever again. But you never know. You never know what. I'll tell you this if we need a crane and Douglas County. We're going to call Jack Mathis Crane and we're GONNA say don't send anybody. But Ron Covey okay..

"I backed him up this grade. Just as far as I could and D six Ten Kale backup a long ways and then I pulled the bull lineup. They're a long ways and that's hard and I collected the turn and got it in there and you're you the choker that comes tight. I goes on the hook so that tight I holds all the other is on. If that makes sense I was standing on the ends of two logs with the rest of the chokers between my legs standing there with my hand on that I tell him. Tighten it up easy. And he's backed up as far as he can. He wasn't watching. He gave me five seconds. Took his foot off the brake. Let off the decelerating down the hill. He went while I was standing on the end of two logged with chokers between my legs screaming like mashed cat. Oh Yeah and when he stopped he turned around. He looked at me like what? What are you doing in there? I was an idiot. Yeah I walked off the turn down to. The truck told the HOOK tender. I quit and he said no no. Don't do that but anyway. So that's one of the reasons that I have so enjoyed working with you because you understand production and you understand when you have to be slow and safe. Yeah it's really nice when we did this Licensing new new licenses for federal their idea. When you're operating a crane has to do a speed and I told the guy said during his new. This is not a time contest. Sweep hang on a second. The Licensing Agency is encouraging speed. Or that's how they're right if you're out there doing your hands on with the crane for doing your test. You know you have a certain amount of time. You have to get this be done with this test. That's back and they're they're they're assuming that means you're familiar with the machine and like you can get the job done because you've got the experience. I guess well. They gave me a little bit of time to play with it. Before you take the test It just seems like totally surprising. You'd think they would be much more safety oriented. That doesn't sound like there's a lot of safety. They have a time limit on this Niguel. But they base that on a high-rise definite and they have a but they basically they're gonNA move over drawing in the lion down picking something up coming over and swing and they are they're just Kinda it's it's a little different than what we do out. Yeah you know go on. Two different jobs here narrates saying so. You pointed out to him. The time is not a consideration in the real world. Now the last thing. We're worried about it so long it takes up. Make sure by safe I for start. Yeah so is there. Is there a licensed? Then to operate a crane crane operator's certification or something like that. You go every three years. I go for refresher course which was Four hours I see original. The original test was eight hours. I said it was just aw safety on hands or nothing. It was just all safety so yeah then the feds got involved. I think it was fourteen Everybody was supposed to have like twenty fourteen like five years ago. Yeah ever- everybody was to have a federal license by two thousand fourteen. There been so many crane accidents through the United States that they decided they were gonNA take over. Wow and try to keep it safer but anyway Oregon had such a safe. Their safety was good. I TRACK RECORD. Of Safety in Oregon. They didn't have that many accidents and stuff so the feds let him go to seventeen. So that's what I went up to mine was in seventeen and and it's a it's a test where there's a crane there and they're watching. You operate this crane to get it done in a certain amount of time. I had to do two of them. Okay did The boom truck because operator boom truck and then I did what they call fixed. Which is a swing craned what they call it and it's like the big one. Yeah and so I had to do a test on each one of them and they also if you run our lattice boom crawler have a test for that. You know operate now's but you you you've taken move a ball through a big thing through obstacle courses obstacles and you gotta go through without Knockin. The cones down. I put it drop it in a fifty five gallon barrel. That's a pretty decent test. Yeah and so on and like I said it's time to get it done certain amount of time and then you got all the written tests that she oughta take. How do they test your ability to rig and strap and like insecure because that seems like as important as the actual joystick of the machine? They do. They did a little test on. That wasn't a lot but it was like part of the written or or sort of interesting. Yeah that card. You just showed me. There's lots of different rigging Options JUST ON THAT CARD. Yeah you know. There's there's a ton to rigging the book we had was about that tech. Yeah and there was. The test took took just about all day really trying to remember. I had or of them for different tests or five different tests. I had to take on a bet that was not just another day at the office. When you're driving up to do that. No well see. We spent three days in the classroom. Oh no kidding trying to learn all this stuff. It was a five day course total and so. I spent three three eight hour as in a classroom going over all the information and oceans rules and answers roles all the stuff that you would be getting tested on in different different stuff about cranes and what have you know. How do you assess that you feel like it's a safer crane operating environment right now? As opposed to ten years ago. I know the work itself is just as dangerous. But do you feel like this is changed much. How do you look at it? I don't think it has but I don't know how the yeah the accident rate is if it's changed any it seems like there's been some big accents just over the last couple of years even So that big thing was at in Florida but that wasn't so much. The crane is just the over bridge the bridge over the bridge but there was another crane and it was because they were the guys. Taken the crane down. Oh tower crawl. Our train came down though. So yeah and but I think it was a truly like the guys weren't communicating at one guy. Took out a pin before the other guy didn't know he had taken something like that out of sequence or something so you ever think about sitting on a tower crane without just you ever been up on one of those. What would that be like Dinero? Same thing. Yeah? It'd be a little different so bellevue boring old operator. That used to work for us. He He'd been operate krantz. Frears may send him up. Do you gene. When they were building the first Sacred Heart Yeah and put him on one of those ones and he said he grabs las boxy crawled the latter. When all the way the talk? Got The cab. Checked out all the charts and everything he would. He do what he can do. Swung AROUND ERROR. Picked up unit plywood. They said that thing just kind of bowed like this. He swung around these said or they wanted. It grabbed his lunchbox. He went down. I'm GonNa find a grain somewhere back on did actually operated grains on barges kidding. But he didn't like that. Who would I like Ryan equipment but for cranes yeah ghetto loader and why is that more more using your head a little more or what is it all the biggest part of why? I like us. 'cause we're we're we go to a different place pretty much every day. Yeah what am working off the same place all the time. Yeah and that I enjoy that. Because working in construction you'd be on a job for a were three months to a year one job. Yeah so and sometimes it might be a really inconvenient location or faraway town. And but but you're saying it's obvious but every day you're on a new job site basically that's pretty cool. That is a lot of times. It's become the same thing but it's a different. Yeah that's pretty never part of town so you've done a lot of work for the sawmills around here. Yeah and so. Since I mean when I grew graduated from high school and logging and construction this was a different sawmill world than it is now yeah I worked for rosy rosy was rolling. Yeah when they had eighty or ninety log trucks parked out there off. Diamond Lake Highway back safe work for him. Nineteen seventy Kenneth Ford. No kid anything come to mind when you think about running a crane around a sawmill over the last forty years and maybe not because I mean they're pretty professional anything mind now most of its Most of US pretty much cut and dried okay The only real weird one I remember was we pulled a barker out that we had actually put in there but while we grabbed a whole it started taking it out the old grain. Start at miss. This sixty five star data coming up in the front you know that was when I was fairly new at run on that one so made me a little bit nervous. Don't want some guy is talking to him on the radio and they said well you got it all now also then can't get any worse what's GonNa Fires got to go. So you were just at the just at the limit you were still zone and the knows the truck just got a little light cast are coming up off the ground so okay all right but you can feel it. You could feel it and see. So that's I mean running a cat skin and cat particularly running grade. You're actually run grade with the seat of your pants. You're running grade with how it feels on your hip pockets. And so a cranes gotta be upset about the same way you can feel. That seat began to tip before you almost recognize anything. Yeah the old ones. See like the old sixty five. Now there's no computers uh-huh the one twenty has a computer. So you'll tell you had. Yeah so you've got a certain you know you kind of tell but you're still even though you got a computer you're still you can still feel it the seat interest I mean. You're you're used to doing everything and even though you have a computer they tell you. This was the weird part. Said if the grand comes with the computer it has to have a computer asked work but you cannot rely on that. Computer Sawyer. Lift interesting yeah you have to. This is what you rely on. You have to still do your physical measurement for your radius and check your Chart Yep so so you have a very agreeable personality. I mean it's it's just you're an easy man to get along with which is nice. Not notably crane operator is but there. There has to be a time around here when you fi- when you said not only no but hell no. We're not GONNA do that. Have you ever had to do that? No I told a guy that was yellow describing that we one day that I've got to pick up the outrageous. I wouldn't put up with that. That's about as extreme on gas right there and he quit doing because I was but now pretty much you know. Everything goes pretty. Yeah barely smooth. Yeah so you've worked for Jack Mathis for forty years that we've figured out a good longtime sense eighty three Belgian K. Mart. Yeah that's all that's almost forty years. That's a good long right. Yeah so that means two things that means good hand and good boss. Yeah K- God work for. That's pretty neat. To have found a a long term relationship like that in a little town where the economy is a cycle as Roseburg's economy has been. It's been really cool. Obviously our lift even though it was nothing for you was pretty huge for us and be more pleased. It was really like A. You're kind of a heroic you know centerpiece of that whole day. So good job lifting walls like that they get. I've had them where they start lifting them and they do want to the start folding up the TACO baby doesn't WanNa come up so you seldom back down. Yeah put some strong backs or something. Yeah come up. Wow Yeah we. We scratched our head and talked about whether those picking is. We're in about the right spot. If it spread the load out. Overhangs probably stiffened him up to a lot. Yes exactly right. Those are all standing up some backbone. Yeah you gotTA swing by. The House is looking real. Good man. Yeah it's coming together about right now..
"crane" Discussed on Essential Craftsman Podcast
"Up so far. You can't lift high enough to clear the ground well. The tree gets really small. Yeah off you're picking more weight than it can actually. Yeah that's true. Fake so cassette and chokers. We pinched off the tops. Plenty Log House Titan. Hard Pool it just pinches off right so you gotta you gotta kind of calculating how much that chunk at your Hook and onto will actually pick and then usually the. The three guys are pretty good with that. Yeah and they figure out about what they how much they wanna go and then they tell me we would roughly guess about how much going away then. Yep We're good you know for so so let me. Just explain to the people just heard US talking about pinching it off with that means when you're when you're using a cable choker half inch diameter five h diameter three quarter inch diameter and the Knubben the end of the choker slips into a bell so it just a beautiful slipknot so when you pull on a choker it's just constricting that cable down and however hard you pull is how hard that cable is trying to cut into the top of that tree. It will actually pull her it. Will it'll just show more Right throughout the more weight to it because like just a like a five eighths choker. What's five eighths line. Hold forty thousand pounds or something you put thousands of pounds a poll on the end of a cable and it will just cut in the same way that that what a a piece of string would cut into a piece of ice cream just cut right through and now you're picking a tree but you pinch the top off the trees cut off and now you've got a problem. Yeah trays going over. The trains trains going to get a little trees. A dead man you don't want to. There's a Lotta when we do trees we try to stay under you. Everything try because it's not doesn't take that long to make an extra cut. Yeah to save somebody. Yeah you know. We don't care about the tree but we do care about the person. Yeah I. I'm guessing there's Times where you called it off because maybe you brought the wrong truck but have you ever called it off for other reasons like it didn't seem say for I don't know whether or maybe the there wasn't enough helper. Not that I can remember you. Tru truly is just another day at the office. I can't imagine getting to that point with such a an. Oa that gets you job. Had some some jobs were we to set up. We were in the mud. Yeah but we just went back to the shop or if we didn't bring it with us to begin with we went back shop that I've done each delay down to outriggers on to take care of it soothing. So just because I'm a not head and I have too much pride. It says that the tensile strength of five eight six by nineteen class wire rope is forty one thousand pounds. And and that's I mean that's a lot of pizza. Five eighths line you can you can heave the back of a d six up hard before that's GonNa break. But so if you thirty or forty thousand pounds of pull on a five eighths cross-section line that's GonNa cut through anything especially if it spins a rotates in any bit you know in fact one time my dad and I ran at the winch line around an old farmhouse at the Guy Wanted Move and br and choked off one and it just went ahead and just cut that house and half with a winch line and it just collapsed and water up into a heap. And Yeah and I could not one upping that but I watched a video about a as a deep sea ship recovering. Now wasn't deep. Sees this huge ship beach itself on a jetty in the in the middle of a very important harbor and so they had to recover and they brought this boat out that basically ran a big fat cable and saw the entire ship class five or whatever the biggest class of ship is and it had to suffer like like eighteen hours or some huge number loop and had little like little tiny like almost like chainsaw. Teeth kind of in. It wasn't just a cable. But the point is it's yeah it's GonNa go through it and how it has spring much. What's your chart. Tell you what we use for our. Oh we're going to ask about. Yeah Yeah so so. This is safe lifting strength. This is safe lifting loads not breaking strength right. Yeah I've talking breaking strap that's in between and constructed logger crane operator. I don't care what it breaks out. I what I can lift with it. That's cool go out in the woods. We wouldn't funny so we've got you got chains webbing or straps and cables. Maybe give us kind of the overview of each one of those and how they're used in your you know crane lifting well we use Mainly nylon slayings what we call a sling and cable Chains we don't use. And why is that Mainly because we don't have any Lifting chains or completely different than just a regular. Oh Jane you'd wraparound something or you know. Improve tested overhead. Work rated right. Yeah yeah they all have to be rated out to what they can lift and I mean we've we've wanted to get a a set of four way is for a long time you know but we just use cables and yeah nylons and those those nylon slings are there tubular right. They're not just a flat thing. Not all okay. The ones that you use on the boom truck or flat okay Now I do have some that are tube. I see The big grand got both interesting The round slings generally will piccolo more than the flat ones but then that depends on wits too so you got the two inch three inch. Yeah up to buy. I think to go five going further net or not but anyway Well I guess like look they get to the wider. They get. You can pick more than whiter. Oh yeah there's a lot of information here swing capacities blocking fairly loading rigging hardware capacities load factors and weight distribution. Ask got all all the information that just about you'd need for making a leftist. Yeah the round ones usually have a bunch of nylon cord or yeah rings they are uh-huh that runs her own and then they got that Kind of like a Kevlar. Yeah like a sheath. Yeah so we'll up pretty good. They still they still cut Well yeah like with the chain or cable. It's kind of obvious when it's wearing out or failing because you have stranded strands easy and a sling kind of looks worn out after using it only a timer to because it's money and it can get a little afraid. Are there ways to tell when it's at the end of its life on the flat ones? They have a string in them. A colored string so woven in so when you see that colored string you're supposed to take it out of service interest on the edge like on the flat nylons. We're using yeah What happens is they start getting war. You know the nylon starts getting more and pretty soon you'll see a colored string round ones generally on those it has to do with slices okay mic in and around if you get any cuts in that outer sheath then you're supposed to take them out of service back to the idea of going to a job to see what you're up against and evaluating the reach and the distance and I called you. I think I've I think I've bugged you a couple of times and asked you to come out and look at jobs that were a little non-typical to see if you could get in there and stuff and you're always out there. Bam the next day or sometimes the same afternoon you look at over and you know you know what to do probably like every other business there are people were when you see who the work orders for. You think I better go out and get a look at this because this guy is a little too energetic or this guy underestimates is capacity. And some guys go man. I've lifted for him eighty times and he's always ready always has me square and my safety zone. Does Your Business Work like that? Like minded as a general contractor kind of most people when they call and want something. I'll ask them Some questions you know like how much weight you beckon far out you go on from the edge of the building and now give me an idea about what size crane. I need If it's really tricky than I go look at it. Most time it Go look at its access for being able to get into the the site so that lasts little job of ours. We've got John Video. You'RE GONNA WANNA watch that because your little boom truck looks real good. Did good. That had you stretched out just about as far as that little truck wanted to work. Didn't it yeah? We stash out just about all well pretty close but we made her. If it was it was all all we could reach really. Yeah the the wall lifted a little bit and it was kind of for us or like. Oh boy did you ever think of? Did you even think twice about that moment? Or is that just now. That's just kinda how it goes. 'cause I thought about that. There was no disaster because you had the whole way to the wall and if you had just lifted enough to pull the corners if it would slipped off the crane wouldn't have cared right. You're not gonNA take any additional shock if the rest of those nails pulled or it slipped off the edge because you already had. It already had yet. Yeah Yeah so. Let's talk about signaling. How many times you get out on the job and the guy has no idea in the world how to communicate to you what he wants you to do. Quite a few quite a few. Does that slow you down much or can you give them a basic crash course and then kind of translate it you know at the moment? Yeah give them a crash course. You know the basics of what you WANNA do Some guys still go like this. I mean you know I know what they WANNA do some hidden from the camera. What he said it's something. I still go like this out for like this for lineup and line got too many of those. Do you prefer hand signals over? Radio is it just superior to just do it that way. Or what? What's your first choice. radios are. They have their place. Or You can't see and I used to carry a set of radios in the boom truck all the time for those times when there were just one guy up on the roof and he'd have to say we'll give you the count of five start winding down you know but Every time I go to use them batteries dead. So you don't so that right. There makes my tail bushy. GimMe the count of five start lining down and that's like George behind a an operator who doesn't look back gives you the kind of five and then goes ahead all all one like that too. Yeah get gas get her. You know you're damn near ran over several times. He he got so bad out dared so many complaints guest him that they took him out of the woods and put him on the pile. Let him push chips or he couldn't wash man this guy. I was working for little river. Box and They are on a side and there were three cats. Runnin is I remember and I was pretty green and they sent me over with another guy because the two men choker setting crew behind a brand new D six e Ten K. power shift nineteen seventy seven really fast and and his cats can our love to push. She'd come in pushing pushing pushing not paying attention with folks editor telling him and he's short ended. A little whip against at stomping broke choke. Setters leg didn't even get off. The cat didn't even get off the cat after broke. This kid's leg get got kind of drug out of there and limped out of there and they went down to the landing and he just kept logged in with the other guy and they sent me over there and Man. I I really. I ended up having to walk up. Anyway we're not here to talk about that but that's no good when they're not watching Orient. No Iran out down health as fast as I could before. Yep same one place else to go someplace else to go. In fact I did that. Running downhill looking over my shoulder and logs sideways. Poom hard as I could go get away and consider myself lucky escape. Yeah so choker. Setting context when logs are brought to the ground or the guys who run out with cables. Strap them so the cat can drag a man. Is that more or less set the jokers and then when the cat comes up you pull a winch line off and you hook the eyes of the jokers onto the winch line. Create the turn turn Seta Logs and then once it turns onto the cat you clear out and the cat off ago yeah see we. We had a hook tender. That's all he did was grabbed the ball line. Rundown Hooks jokers Oh I see. Give signal the casket or he. He drug him off that cat twice. You'd kitten at one time I was actually down. Try and you know you could. Sometimes you gotta dig underneath the logs to get jobs. Choker will and I was digging underneath underneath logged halls and he took off. Oh man that thing come around damn near Belle. Dumber knocked hell out of it. Yeah Yeah I mean it was. Yes so my story was. I backed him up this grade. Just as far as I could and D six Ten Kale backup a long ways and then I pulled the bull lineup. They're a long ways and that's hard and I collected the turn and got.

They said that thing just kind of bowed like this long around me said they wanted. It grabbed his watch. Boxing went down. I'm GonNa find a grain somewhere back on verse construction. I started out in nineteen seventy call me went bad and the guy was working for. He moved out of state volatile. So I went to work for Abbey's for about five years and then I went back into construction for Mathis or for somebody else for different guy. He was doing Building and Remodel of Abbey's Oh I says L. I met him nicey remodeled the Stevens store. Yeah that was the original Abbey's flagship station right there. That's when we first Kicked out the front. The first time it was kicked out then kicked out another time since end to that was seventy five or seventy six. That would have been. Yeah that's when I graduated from high school year is a little ahead of me. Abbes is the hometown pizza place for those of you. Who aren't locals? It's SORTA the yeah hometown early regional. Yeah it started out. Just hometown himself started that store. And then they they. Well hang up and went eminent partners. Okay Bob Earl Robert Harold K. You remember that little other pizza joint right in the place right. Yeah my dad used. Take Sarah when we were little and then all of a sudden it wasn't there anymore in Abbey's hat. At what point did you kind of get behind the seat of a crane then and Kinda converter transition to operating that or was it a long gradual thing? No it actually was about. Nineteen eighty was the first time I got a seat. Nord. Rt but you had worked in the woods. Let me jump in because you and I had talked about working in the woods a little bit. Yeah I did for after High School for the Navy. So about nineteen eighty. You've got into the seat of an old. Rt IN RT as a type of crane. Yeah it's a rough terrain crane. I see not not for driving on the road. They usually have put him on Little Boys. All jobsite to jobsite. What's it a big one? No it was a little icy I think it was a fifteen ton or something and you know we were basically what he was doing. A job in Turlock California turlock That's where my mom was born. Oh Yeah we did a flood-control for a bunch of different structures stuff for flood control out in the By the airport out by Blake. Oh California and anyway so we had uh some bridge beams and stuff for foreign Bridges that we put in for over the canals and so I use it to move them around autumn and not all of them. Yeah so it was just a deal where the work had to be done on your there. And they knew you're responsible and they said can you run this getting the seat. Or how'd that go pretty much? Go get say to that thing and unload all those beams off onto the ground. Yeah Yeah and the more you did it. The more you became the best added on the job site. Generally or the go-to Guy Sorta Kinda took awhile it? I started with Jack and eighty three Jack Mathis and he had He had cranes but he had a crew that worked Crane business part and I was just garnered. That was an eighty three eighty three and nineteen ninety. He bought that boom truck that we have and I started running. It'll bit off and on the guy that was running the crane business. He retired ninety six. So then I took over all time of ninety-six. Is it the same crane to that? You used on our job when you started on in one thousand nine hundred. The truck okay. Yep but that's the little crane. They had a big crane to. So you're gonNA describe that to us and we'll probably get some B. Roll a picture that maybe to put up. Because it's how big is it? That's one hundred one hundred twenty nine hundred twenty. You may maybe just give us an idea if you had to classify you know cranes into classes as a sounds like boom truck is one class and a rough terrain on Rt. What are the others? What are the general categories You have crawler cranes which are on tracks and usually a lattice they have a lattice. Boom configuration Is that for the most rough terrain or for mud. Or what but why not tracks now? They use those a lot for like Bridge and Buildings put him on on. Sorry okay. Trask cataracts only flat. No grouses you see him on bridge jobs big allied pads on the tracks big houses down on the ground they have. They have to put down. Matt's Big Timber Matt say put down at the level up zoo because ab no outriggers. Their tracks are just sitting on the tracks. Yeah and so. They but big Matt's down for him to walk on and and level amount and that's what they used for those. Okay let's got flat ground or something and it's good ground but usually they use matt's anyway it's more stable. None you have the like are one. Twenty is a truck mounted grain and they also have a all-terrain which is like the truck mount but the tires most of them steer. Oh articulate all the way around they get in a little bit rougher country than the one like I have and what. What's this bigger one? You know we? We know the one that was in our video. The one that you brought is what's had a ton seventeen boom truck seventeen ten boom truck so the other crane is a hundred and twenty ton crane it would pick up that boom truck that he operated and set it up there quite a ways out there quite a serious crane with a telescoping boom it as one hundred thirty seven two main stick. Yes so think of that. Which is actually for that size of crane nowadays is pretty short. Always it really. Oh yeah they go the some other cranes go up to one hundred and ninety seven feet on one twenty. Wow that's mounted on a regular sort of semi truck frame. No it's a They called they called a truck mount but it is a basically a truck. But it's a big one. It's custom made by the crane manufacturer like eight axles. How many axles got five axles into the crane and two tags? Yeah Yeah See. So they're seven acts credible big heavy wide rubber big rubber to haul that they're driving down the road. It has to have a pretty good size tires because the tire width makes up. How much you want. You can all see it. Total going down the highway one hundred thirty thousand bounds. Oh my gosh have yeah. Yeah are there. Are there trucks bigger than that? Going down the road ever. Wow this is big and it looks big. And that it's out there by the CAB and sticking out in front you know ready to batter down anything you run into most most of all like to five hundred thousand six fifty tonnes They usually the whole house comes off boom and house and everything comes off. Then they just drive carrier down the road and put it back on. They bring a crane to put the crane together Knowing together most of them are they're designed to pick themselves up and they drive drive the truck underneath it and send it back out right. Yeah and not all but most of them. Yeah so boom. Truck is the proper description for the smaller one and that is that how people should refer to it as opposed to a crane or is it kind of just either way. It's still a crane. A she's a classified as a boom truck got it. Yeah which one do you prefer? Operating really doesn't matter. They're both about the same. Do you have a little butterflies in your stomach anymore when you had no job or is it just another day at the office now just another day? Just another day interesting. This is just what you do what I do. What about in terms of prep do you ever do you? Always I know you came. Scoped out our job to decide which truck to bring. Do you always kinda scope the job out I or you just kind of at this point no I will will figure it out one way or another said another day at the office or does it. Is there a lot of prep going on before you get there from your end not always some jobs you have to go look at before you go to them to see what which one you're going to need Like if you're doing Air conditioning heating systems. Or Hot tubs or flaws. They're basically going to be the boom truck. I mean there is some of the units that we have to set with the big crane because of the re reach out there. Yeah out there but Most part most of them are just boom truck. Yeah but so. How often with the big one do you have to get out the chart and Looki- alcohol and the weighed in at where I'm going to be stretched out to? How often in that big when you get close enough that you have to be paying close attention to the weight and the distance and the angle or with that crane in this market. Is it almost always in the safety zone? Well if you're if you're right on the edge you know I mean you're on edge right. You don't have a lot of leeway I mean you you gotta get your measurement from center of the pen on the crane to the center of the pick on whatever you're lifting and then you look at your chart what that radio call radius. What is and see what you can lift at that point. Sometimes you get right out there where you're picking all it'll pick on at seventy feet you know like the big crane seventy feet. I think it's good for twenty thousand pounds. You still can get him to tip. You don't WanNa do want to do that pretty much. Stay within the Chart. Because if you get outside the chart and you don't know if you know something's GonNa sure and so you're checking that lots of times you have to look at that chart and make sure you're you're squarely in the safety margin or an affinity become able. Yeah if it's heavy stuff. Yeah how do you know with confidence? What something ways? I mean like our walls. It's a bunch of lumber and all sorts of things and I know that might have been light enough. That didn't matter but do you have like some kind of benchmark things that you know. This general thing is always around here. How do you develop that sense? Well you just kinda lot of extra guessing about what it ways because you know you can get right down to it. You could do a lot of calculating I think I think I gave you my best guess on the way to that big wall. Yeah and as you know you can take the lumber way so much scoreless in absolutely added up we did right and steals about the same way but lots of times in when you're lifting some old thing out of a male or something that you don't know what the heck is on it you know. What else is stuff that's in it for years? You know whoops anchor. Bolt didn't get cut off. Yeah all right now. Here's something wondered about a lot because I fiddled around with trees allot logging and Sawmill? And I've climbed and I've seen I think you around here. With Ukraine with one hundred thousand tonnes stretched up in the air behind building choke to the top of a tree that a tree services taken out yeah grabbing a tree on its feet and taken out some part of it maybe guts feathers. An- all right out or is it a lot of times it's in pieces. Yeah Sometimes depending on the size of the tree the biggest broadmoor try and take it all in one chunk. You're up so far. You can't lift high enough to clear the ground well. The tree gets really small. Yeah off you're picking more weight than it can actually..
