Milan grab draw at Manchester United
"What happened in the league games today and starting with manchester united's one all draw with me. It means milan will be taking a crucial away. Goal into the second game. Incensio on the eighteenth of march. Paulie shaw said. Afterwards his side were a bit slow in possession. He say's a draw was a fair result. Would you agree john. I wouldn't care. Now melania rob dot brand. Cassie goal was that i thought poundstone hip go away. We will the united us. Right in terms of how slow in possession they. They were really lethargic. They couldn't get going dion by the difference when he came off the bench and scored a fantastic goal fernandez yet. Another assist but that play in general was quite weak was quite slow.

We know how good their away record is but milan were missing some place. What if they come back and then they have them at home to. Do you feel for them. Not fear for both of these. Who's actually going to go ahead and win this game over two legs i was. I was disappointed. I was disappointing. Stray off the bat and so two teams. So that probably didn't help me actually watching again because if you look at a short almost looks like it may have been a decent game. I didn't enjoy this at all. Quite honestly i think i'd rather put neither say disaster. When as opposed to either say deserve the draw so i wasn't my cup of tea whatever to deplete incites lopez. Enjoyable horrible may win hole and rain coming down now for me.

"Jimmy dorsey welcome to the model majority. Podcast today thank you for being one of our very first episodes to record in the year. Twenty twenty one which is a very exciting for so many people that we are here at this point but before we get into all that one actually start from the very beginning to get to know your personal story a little bit. i love to hear about. Where did you grow up. how did you grow up. And if anything during that time leads you become who. You are today as a chef but also has an activists usc for sure so i was born in shanghai china and my parents moved to the us when i was around to pursue their both of them are scientists and so they moved to new york. They went to a school in the bronx. And so i followed them when i was up three and a half with grandparents so i was really raised by my grandparents growing up And lived in new york until about eight. Yeah that's i think that's right. I moved to seattle so i. I set my larger chunk of my childhood in seattle washington and ended up going to school College in seattle as well so like good decade plus in seattle cut the no it and during that time also like learned. I think that seattle is not the place for me. I really really wanted to go back to new york so right after college and making that switch back to new york i i. started in management consulting after college. I was a finance major in school. Originally marketing major switched over to finance was not doing so great. Marketing and very quickly knew that finance. It's fine but it was something that is not naturally good at it. You know. I think everyone kind of has their own talents and you can tell you a talented something when it's really yes you're still gonna have to work hard and there's times where you're not doing great job or what. Not but for the most part. Like in makes just intuitively makes sense to you and tell. The numbers intuitively. Don't make sense to me the way that they did to other people And i hate like the serota asian being good at math and talk about that maybe later on but at least it was like a way to get my foot in the door ever since i was young. Who was always a big part of my life. But i didn't even think about it in college or honestly dion for a while because it was never really encouraged by my family. My family going up with more traditional than they are now I'm chinese american and like and we kind of because they were scientists. They were very wary of Career or they felt that. I cannot get ahead because they were you know they were in our lab. They were always the ones that were doing all the work. If you've just look at lab dynamic it's always usually by hawk. Individuals a lot of them. Asian east asian or south asian.

Seattle Police announce arrests related to arson, bat assault on officer
"Charging decision in the Briana Taylor case of a living back at the end of September, September 24th or so there was national protests about that decision. And, of course here in Seattle, there were protests. And that was the weekend that we saw the one protester who said the officer ruled his bicycle over his head. And in that same demonstration, there were some fires lit Dumpster fires, things like that. And then a cop that was hit in the back of the head. With a baseball bat. So originally there was an arrest of a Jacob Greenberg, who's 19 for the Dumpster fires, And that was several weeks ago He was released and then last week he was rearrested again. Shifty, has talked about the arrest today. The actions alleged in these cases clearly demonstrate the ongoing violence. It continues to be connected to some of the riots occurring across the city. Jacob Greenberg is charged with assault in the first degree for hitting an ESPY officer in the head with a metal bat. So hard during a riot that the officer's helmet was cracked. I'm sure you've seen some of these photos. These disturbing images on your broadcast and on social media. According to charging documents after the brutal attack, the national from Kirkland Express remorse Not for potentially fatally assaulting itself. For the fact that the officer was wearing a helmet that most likely saved his life. Greenberg also texted a friend that he would like to and I quote slit every SBD throat. So that was in the charging documents of this same 19 year olds who is the stepson of a former state lawmaker who Is accused now of hitting that officer over the head with the bat. Did you guys see that It was viral video when actually so he's not charged and he originally assigned said he was released to his family and the prosecutor had actually asked for a higher bail. I believe in that, but the judge went ahead and released him. Now he's being held on $750,000 bail. Thea. Other arrests related to protest that came last last week or recently, Dia's also talked about today. 20 year old Jonathan Do.

"She was pretty ubiquitous. I lived in Montreal at the time. And so you are particularly exposed And I'd always had a kind of instinctive rejection of for music and so I wanted to to explain why I had that reaction and to try and understand what her fans were appreciating about her and the book looks at Kerr in many ways to figure that out but also looks at how taste works in general to figure that out and that all made sense up until about three or four years ago ago when the idea that celine dion was ever something that people were ashamed to like more that there she was ever a divisive figure gear suddenly became rendered absurd in and this grand cultural consensus arose. That she is the best. And everybody's always thought so. And who who would it'd be so crazy as to have any problem with Cillian deal in many ways in many ways my book now feels like it's terms have been inverted and a future future civilizations will look at it and go what was this man doctoring about but you weren't alone You weren't alone in two thousand seven in sort of feeling like Selena. Sort of like the over the top schmaltzy artists. That was that was kind of the consensus of the time it was get. It was conventional wisdom and particularly you know if you look at the way that she was often represented in the press and in the media the kind of snooty reaction to her was was pretty typical and in the book. I have pages and pages of examples of just terrible insults that people all directed at her for decades and yet that's all turned around for for a variety of reasons. Partly I think for things that have happened happened in the culture and also things that I have happened with her now even then you saw the Renaissance Aline de Oncoming and here. We are thirteen years later. Is it playing the way that you fight body would. It's different than I thought I imagined you know. There's a cycle that culture goes through where usually after the twenty years after the time that something was been famous and usually big and famous and divisive the edges. All soften you know and we look back and we see somebody more as a representative of that time period and memories of what the culture was like at that time. And you know if you think about ninety late nineties ninety s culture the differences between Celine Dion Smash Mouth. Don't feel like they're that important. They kind of sound similar now in a way that would have been impossible. Multo Imagine Ben but I think there's more than that I think that because of the way that she's seized on this kind of new phase for life you know partly beginning through those Las Vegas residencies which was kind of a whole new model of how to sort of manager mid-career and then the biggest transformation took place three years ago when her long long time husband and manager. Andrew Lill died And you know this was her like quarter-century older husband who started managing her when she was a teenager with children of his own Was Sheepish to admit he you've been seeing someone twenty six years younger. The couple would marry in Nineteen ninety-four Montreal's knuckle down basilica a lavish ceremony with a star-studded guest list and so her whole career had been under the ages of his aesthetics and his decisions and as much as you know. She's made very clear. How broken up? She is and heartbroken over his death at the same time. She's clearly seized the opportunity to be in command of her own pather career and year-by-year more and more we've been seeing her sort of performing coming her enjoyment of this stage of her life in this kind of real kind of middle aged liberation in a lot of ways and people are responding to that. I want to talk a little bit about that because I think the way that we think about How Rene Chronic crafted? Her career is to be this capital desert of diva an I and now she seems to be having a lot of fun with that. Yeah I think that you know. Lin- came from a very old fashioned Quebecois showbiz culture the the way that people often refer to the divisions that there was kind of a division between the Sean to kind of tradition in Quebec. which is the more sort of serious-minded singer-songwriter are often very politicized nationalist cadet culture and then on the other side a kind of longer-standing older kind of variety show tradition? You know that people like the undo frame would represent which was much more of a sort of deavere kind of champagne and Tuxedos and gowns kind of world and and when it represented that end of it and so that's sort of what he brought selene into big outfits and big hair shiny lights and and that's what when translated over into a more worldwide and especially sort of English language debut. She ended up being very tied to kind of Hollywood or Broadway. kind of sense of what a diva is like and fitting into that kind of more old fashioned world really you know she collaborated with streisand as somebody like a couple of generations younger than streisand. In a way that nobody else in the nineties would have done atn very few..

"dion" Discussed on Directionally Challenged
"And we are directionally challenged. I mean most of the time. We're actually challenge. But it's especially bad today is it is so bad today. I mean we thought we'd have everything together by the time winner thirties and we woke up today. And we don't and we don't definitely don't but I also feel there are elements out of our control that are also affecting it. But what do you think i. I don't know you know. My Day started with a dog vomiting all over the back of my car while my toddler was also back there. So you know you would think it could only go uphill from there but it just kind of gets a little crazier yeah. There's there are many many factors that contributed to today and including during our interview with Dion. Lim who we have on the podcast today. She's incredibly amazing. She but during that interview the power went out. Yep so you'll hear that as well but that's okay because Dion Lim is an Emmy Award winning news anchor for ABC in San Francisco. She's also a public speaker and a communications expert. So if anyone knows how to roll with the punches it is definitely Dion Lam and she is here to talk about her new book. It's called make your moment. The Savvy Woman's communication playbook for getting the success you want and that is what we need today Dion Land we do and you know. She has an awesome quote in her book. As women we are constantly told to speak up lean and be a bad ass. We absolutely absolutely should we must but we have to execute these things in the right way and that is what I love about her book. She has all these things talking about how we should execute communication Haitian. When is a time candice that you completely botched something that you thought you would absolutely kill? I mean for me. It's not so much that I feel like I've completely -pletely botched something. I get a lot of anxiety like social anxieties. I mean say a lot on this podcast. Don't meet your heroes and that's really just for me 'cause usually whenever I do it it goes horribly wrong Because I stick my foot in my mouth or like I my favorite was Back in Atlanta When we were still filming Vampire Empire Diaries One of our co workers had been doing a play with a really successful actor and We were all going out to dinner like a big group of us us. And so I was chatting with this actor and And they just so happen to like work on shows that I really loved rather trying to like keep it cool and he was like. Oh so would you guys do today and I like oh I went to a movie and it was like which one I said the name of the movie and I was like it was like so bad. Was He in it. Yeah Yeah that's my movie. You just didn't put two and onto together no because also everyone was talking about how bad the movie was okay. Maybe we'll suicide squad okay. So who was the actor. I don't WanNa say it does just a general actor in the movie suicide squad and Mel is really biting her lips right now. I did personally. Didn't enjoy the movie and I wasn't trying to be offensive but then that was kind of the end of the Congress in mouth experience. How do you like come back from that? I don't like to actually just kidding. Like that was is just like the review. I haven't written my full review yet. I was just trying to get no it. Was it that that's usually what happens like when I get intimidated. I say the wrong thing so I'm excited to have dion here today because I don't I am that person who will hide out at parties. Like you kind of see I. I'm a corner Gal I do yeah. Candice is more comfortable on the cool kids corner which is awesome. And I'm Kinda be bopping around the party. I always love it because I know exactly where you'll be the whole night so I can come check in and anytime. I don't don't know what what else to do. I'm like oh I can go back to my safe zone but you guys. Dion has so many great tips to success and her book is fantastic so without further ado. Let's just get straight into it with Dion theon limb and we are here Dion Lim. We're so excited to here with us today. This has been a long time coming. I mean I kind of reached out like months and months and months ago there was no physical book. I think I had a postcard which was super lame. And I emailed it to your producers minnows. It's not like okay. Hail Mary. Let's see what happens. Well we're so excited to have you here now. You actually do have a book. Make your moment. The Savvy Woman's communication playbook book forgetting the success you want. This book is good. Oh the lot that everyone can utilize when no matter where you are in your life. I mean we have been through so so many different work situations and I wish I had read this because I would have handled them really differently. You know something though all of the mistakes that I made and maybe you share the same. All the mistakes that you made in a prior life actually really helped shape who you are today so take it for the win very true. Let's talk about how you grew up because I love how you reference your Mama's Tiger Balm then your your dad also didn't necessarily know how to relate tune Americanized teenager boat. was that like. It was so strange because in in a way even though I had an older brother I have an older brother it was almost like I was an only child because my parents grew up super strict. I mean it was all about studying and work nonstop because that was the way to success. Keep your head down and your nose clean. And that was the formula. But that's not how rehired is so any any boy problems any drama at school not my parents problem for them. It was just focus on academics. You should just figure out the rest yourself and you don't have have a mentor or someone to go to and that was really challenging. Where are your parents from? Oh my mom's from Taiwan and my dad's from Hong Kong. Yeah and then were you born here. I was born in Midland Michigan and I think we were probably one of only a handful of Asian people in our neighborhood and I remember people had thrown eggs at my parents windows. It was I mean we forget living in California what it's really like in other parts of the country and you talk about bringing pork buns the school in your lunchbox and how everyone else may be had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and so being different wasn't necessarily celebrated and but that really drove you to try A.. And grow and work really hard to become successful woman that you are today. -solutely fantastic thank you. Imagine going to school or we're going to work and bringing food and then having people ask. Is that Panda Express. Is that Campbell's chicken noodle soup but it looks funny. What do you say and that is is one of the examples? I use of needing to really figure out how to respond. Because you know of course in your six year old brain your fifteen year old brain your twenty year old brain. Your your instinct is to immediately snap or to do those knee-jerk reactions which as we've now learned don't always solve the problem. Did your parents prince give you any advice. At that time I guess not at six years old at six years old. They're just comforting new. I'm sure trying to figure out what to say. But is there any moment that sticks out where they were trying to guide you through that or are they trying to figure it out for themselves as well okay. There was no comfort in this house. It was more like you know in elementary school in the United States. If you skin skin your knee and you fall down to the playground you get an ice pack at the nurse. Might maybe your nurse will give you some candy. No no no no no I remember. I stuck my finger in a Bagel and sliced my finger and and there was no comfort. My Mom said figure it out. You'll be fine and here. I am as a child so I had to navigate all of it myself and oftentimes I would reach out out to people. I probably shouldn't have. And that's how he learned about feedback and how I learned about getting advice from others and how you know you really have to be careful with how you accept feedback back in how you seek guidance and in this you talked about standing up for ourselves in the right way which I think is really key because we're always told to stand up for ourselves but then there is a right and a wrong way. Can you expand on that for our listeners who we have lots of goods and that's been a lot of the fun too. Is that people get to see. See the behind the scenes. Because I mean everyone's seen anchorman right. Stay classy San Diego. Yeah you know what. That's actually one of the good examples that I'm gonNA give you that. I stole my a anchor. My Co anchors tagline and I've had many co anchors so I shall not name which one on this one was you know maybe mid way through my career so far and boy to a male co anchor. This particular one the tagline. was everything everything so as you can imagine. Let's say it was. That'll be a dead giveaway. You would murder me and stolen and then in front of everyone. It was just an accident because you can't trademark goodbye right. He said how dare you say that. How dare you take my words? I thought to myself itself. Oh well I didn't know you own the trademark to good night so here I am in front of all of these people feeling humiliated because of course I'm the youngest out of everyone there so I'm already feeling intimidated. And I decided to deploy something but I call gloss and go where I love it and we're not talking about the loss. I thought we were going. We could but really I just glossed it over. I told a funny story and go meaning I just kept on talking about something totally different. I did a hard right turn and believe it or not because everyone else is thinking the same thing that this man baby is having a Tantrum that they're of course not going to play into it either either so they just want to get the heck out of Dodge and talk about something else I give up. You're only as good as your last newscast hassle. Just keep on going. We've lost him gloss. Going just turned off. We remember what we what the last no. I think. We're practicing it right now where you are living in a gloss and go okay so but the you you don't WanNa feed into the chaos that someone might bring into you or feed into the electricity suddenly just going off in the middle of this guy. So what I know about becoming a news anchor. I've have learned everything from a movie called up close and personal. Yeah that's about it. Did you always know that you wanted to be news. Anchor is something you aspired to be. Yeah great great question. Yes and no so of course growing up in this very traditional Chinese household it was all about math and science and chemistry and being an attorney all things that I have no no interest in whatsoever and I also realized I was not the best student in school. I am still not the smart. Smartest the brightest or the most skilled and I realized I really enjoyed learning about other people's lives because I found my life to be so boring and uninteresting and had such bad self esteem. So how cool. Who Was it? The opportunity to then learn about other people's stories than share them with the world and for me. I also learned how to speak proper English by watching. ABC's twenty twenty. Twenty with Hugh downs and Barbara Walters. So like all these kids at my school were watching saved by the bell and shows like that and here. I am watching the news. It does feel like it's come full circle you now working at ABC mom was one tiger. Mom feel extremely proud of you because now she watches you. It's it's so cool. She's actually in Connecticut. And she streams all of my newscasts. She has not missed one of them with the time difference. If I'm anchoring the eleven o'clock newscast she will stay up to the wee hours of the morning. Wow Yeah. And that's her way of communicating that she does love me because even though she has that tiger mom in her still where she's never actually he said those three words to me not naming. I love you because she was actually given away as a child. Because being a girl in Communist China you know you're not welcome. She was given away to another family so she never had that love and that type of atmosphere and was never taught to nurture correct..
"dion" Discussed on EAA's The Green Dot - An Aviation Podcast
"The way that we have set it up which is i like to think was pretty innovative when we started back in two thousand ten <hes> in aerospace and and we had proved that <hes> with e._a. As as working process of well how are we can't have you guys out in the field with all of his stuff. Setting up was one of their concerns <hes> and so <hes> we got creative in and came up with the process that worked for e._a. And for the environment that it is <hes> so that we could do it in a very short window of time time and get everything good to go yeah. That's actually brought up a good point. I forgot that we do we arrivals and departures between the daytime show in the nighttime show see you can't be setting up then have a box for that correct so yeah so <hes> you say that you're renting or leasing leasing. These trucks is it. Is it just a to does anybody ever raise an eyebrow when they when they see the name of the business or saying. I need some semis as in don't worry they're just going to be full to overflowing with explosives than ever concern. I you know i think one of our one of our sources for trailers actually aid likes the idea because he his trailers are a little bit older. I you know we we have to be insured right so but the more you want plausible. Deniability right is wrong but <hes> we we have to be honest with our our providers right and they know what we do <hes> and <hes> they're comfortable with it. We the way we set it up because we also don't want to set fire to a you know a fifteen fifteen twenty thousand dollar trailer right and we have that times five locations so we we don't wanna do that so we we employ protocols to to deal with that that and that's that's a part of totally more in depth process. That's not quite as exciting as putting the fireworks in the sky but <hes> they're. They're comfortable with him. Uh-huh and we we keep those gone so and how big is your <hes>. How big is your crew that you bring how many people we do need to be working under you to get this all to happen for one of our performances so if we take out the done deal effect that we did this year which were coming too soon <hes> our normal display that we do here is about twenty five <hes> people that we have involved that that put their hands on the project from packing the product <hes> after i've selected it all out <hes> packing it up and prepping it to pulling equipment to <hes> logistics of getting everything down here <hes> and then also being on site to to terminate the shelves and and support the show <hes> about twenty five people consistently <hes> with the done deal effect. We needed about an additional dozen people to to support that in and of itself so this year we exceeded over thirty thirty five people now when you're talking about the done deal dennis dunbar dion deal. Yes sir the done deal. A great name should be trademarked that was dennis is a phrase as he claimed that was our top secret <hes> skunkworks right so what you're saying is <hes> you did. All of the work created something something that that we need to describe here for those that weren't here but something that i have never ever seen before in my life something something amazing and then daynuss came along and put his name on on half of it. Is that a is that a fair right well. It takes you know to to do something like that is was new and exciting and hadn't been in done before and then we're choosing to showcase it here. <hes> if you will at air adventure in a very technically complex environment <hes> dennis had instill a lot of trust trust and so did the oshkosh fire department which i must say the oshkosh fire department is a first class fire department and we are lucky here <hes> for us and i think for air venture. I just have to give them that shout because they were significant enough making that possible well. That's great to hear. Obviously we've got a good strong close relationship with all of our first responders and a number of other local agencies that we we couldn't do the event without them. And of course i'm just giving dennis a little bit of a hard time not in the room to defend himself too but so the done deal <hes> <hes> i would describe it as like the top of a mushroom cloud like a giant fireball that i i just you run out of words. I have honestly never seen anything like it. In person i never want to see it outside of entertainment certainly <hes> <hes> but it was a it was a roiling ball of fire that somehow stayed intact for far longer than it looked like should have been possible and then just for the heck of it. You are shooting fireworks fireworks up into it. Yes <hes> how did this what i just pick a word and try to answer a question around in uh. I was utterly flabbergasted by this thing when i saw it well. I imagine there's some proprietary info but what can you tell us about how you pull that off. Sure sure it an awesome you know we were hoping for that response <hes> from a lot of folks and <hes> us in the pyro community we see a lot of things with pyrotechnics that the public public doesn't see very frequently and <hes> or at all and we you know as a special effects company as well as pyrotechnics company we we dabble into some of the french areas of a pyrotechnic sciences and <hes> with the done deal to give you to give you some metrics there at that was eight hundred sixty one gallons of gasoline that we shot up and the apogee the approximate apogee of the fireball rising up igniting and <hes> <hes> you know getting to apogee was about maybe three hundred seventy five feet in the air really oh yeah <hes> those salutes that we shoot what what what you saw the some people call them tracers <hes> that we shot up into the rising fireball <hes> those reached three hundred and fifty three hundred seventy five feet and if you watch the video even though their shot at a slight angle the fireball exceeded the height of those when it reached its full. Do you have an idea how big the fireball itself was. If it's up there at three fifty three seventy five my guess my guess is is the with someone else had asked me this and i had and trying to find an inappropriate image where i can take a reference of the with <hes> is a bit of a challenge <hes> but i'll figure it out i in my guestimation. I'm going to say it was easily. Force force fifty four hundred seventy five feet wide at least <hes> just by guessing in and how that works so this is this is something that's been a bit of a challenge in the pyrotechnic community <hes> for people to accomplish and we've done it on on a significantly smaller scales before <hes> one of the pyro guys said that we brought they call themselves. The fireball deeds so you know we. We love these guys. You bill scott smith. Bill bill has perfected it in yeah. Yeah bill is perfected it in extreme size. I think i've done maybe two hundred and fifty gallons prior to that before but we wanted to really push the envelope because one had been done for six hundred sixty six gallons at an a pyrotechnic event like a black sabbath show or something it was it was it was pretty much. I don't know if you remember back here in appleton. They used to have the p._g._a. Would come here. <hes> i think the last one was two thousand and fourteen <hes> that it was here in appleton <hes> which is a like e._a. As to be ation it's like a con- pyro technicians convention okay right and it's pretty exclusive pyro technicians <hes> throughout the week even though they opened up some of the night shows for the public and <hes> they had shot one bill did that one and i said bill hey we want to push the the envelope said he a but we want to do so safely and so <hes> i really want you to be here to help us with that and <hes> you know traditionally we call them ghost minds lanes right when they're much much smaller <hes> we you know shoot them out of large steel tubes <hes> the same tubes that we shoot out a twelve inch shell <hes> will a us steel tubes to fire these out gasoline mixture <hes> and there's a ratio and there's a there's a really precise science to the charge that is lifting lifting them <hes>. You don't wanna you wanna set the charge. It's mostly black powder but you want to set it in a way <hes> that it's not punching through too fast because it doesn't allow the the gasoline to rise out and particulate. You won't ignite gasoline. If it stays in its liquid form so you need to you need to particulate atom is it in the sky and this is where a lot of people they have struggled and development on the scale is to punch through it or they won't send enough out and just kind of you know blob over the over the tube or a lot of it a lot of the residual fuel will come back to the ground and start fires and so we've exercise it inveterate over many many years along with probably another two hundred pyre higher technicians across this country all trying to edge up a little bit further to try to achieve the result that you saw here on wednesday and saturday night and being that it was new. I <hes> you know for any public events on like what we did here at e._a. We had to model it out for our sanity. We had to model it out on explosives modeling software so that we knew that the intervals of distance from the effect we're going to be safe because at six hundred feet you're gonna get secondary burns that's right and so it's just an amount of heat and that's one of the exciting factors is that heat is is a part of the experience right when the wall of fire goes or or the the done deal goes <hes> you get the audibles audible boom right you get the visual effect and now you also have that feel of that heat that comes to you and kinda just helps seal the deal the impact of what's happening and <hes> the crowd absolutely loves it and we want to increase that experience get it close close but not too close to make sure that we're keeping people safe and also allow margin for error in case the wind direction changes are or things of that nature so in the case the <hes> the dundee l. is this tremendous amount of of gasoline that needs to be elevated as adding a single container is at an a single push to get all of that. Are there multiple things off to get that much. Gasoline atomised at just the right yes we we had. I think fifty mortar tubes out in the field <hes> that all fired at the same time and are twelve inch mortars. I think they hold thirty two gallons each when we were shooting them in some we had some eight inch we we kinda shape them in a okay so that we concentrate a lot more volume towards the center <hes> and if you notice when you watch the fireball and the videos it comes shooting out but it also rolls in <hes> and that's what's keeping it alive longer than than most people are used to cause gasoline in and of itself as a flashing fuel doesn't have a large amount of burnt time <hes> effects.

"Inch in diameter of the shell size <hes> it's seventy five feet spacing from <hes> any structures or for people <hes> so we keep in our inventory up to sixteen inch diameter shells and so that's in a p._a. Code is twelve hundred feet <hes> but we like to err on the side of caution and margin and also to simplify it far guys in the field so we do one hundred feet per inch and so sixteen shell is is going to require sixteen hundred feet instead of twelve hundred feet <hes> and give you an example on how that impacts us here at venture with the positions emplacements we having a field we have five primary trailers and then ten front positions as we call him so a total of fifteen positions. We spread out in the field <hes> we could from. I'm the primary location shoot up to eight inch diameter shells but we do not do that. We we stick with six inch shells are cap limit and a lot of that is is is truly it's unnecessary. Although the bigger the shell the more impactful the more wonderful you know the effects <hes> when you have larger shells <hes> a hey there are a lot more costly <hes> and be weakened fill the sky in in the patterns we do without having to push those limits and we allow ourselves extra buffer for safety so tom. I think you might have been asking if you weren't it's in the question. I'm really interested to find out of that is when you're talking about choreographing to music and you're talking about <hes> an actual delay in you know i i. I see the firework far enough way. The sound is a little bit late. Yes are you taking any of that. At one account. When you're worrying about the the choreography yes <hes> so i calculate a primary section of the audience and i targeted which is show center <hes> and it's about one hundred hundred feet out from the speakers because light does travel faster than sound and the experience is different for everyone <hes> wherever they are positioned and in the audience and the audience here is very wide <hes> and stretched down the down the line for example. If you're sitting way down south of the runway looking up at the fireworks fireworks they're not gonna look symmetrical the fireworks that are closest to you are going to look bigger and it's gonna look almost at a skew of an angle <hes> and so oh i think the human mind can process that you're at a you're at an angle and they know that and they can still see the symmetry but it doesn't visually look if you look at a camera angle angle from that perspective it looks very different than from show center visually but audibly you also have some of the same struggles if the further you move back from the sound source the more or delay the sound sources going to get to you for example a lot of my guys that are in the field. They are about twelve hundred feet in the opposite direction of the speakers the sound completely off for them when it arrives to them they see everything going off instantaneously visually but audibly nothing lines up. It's it's almost up to. I a second one point. Seven seconds delayed audio <hes> because i think you get one millisecond per sixty feet. I believe is is about this and i have all these calculations but it is something that i figure out and you can only aim for the best case scenario of the audience at show center so for those that are listening. The best place to sit is show center uh-huh so what's interesting to point out this or the width of the audience. We've got a big long flight line and even at the night air show if people just sort of bunch and a little bit it is it is wide but i always get the sense to that <hes> <hes> your show itself is very much on the seems like it's very much on the white nightside versus something in a stadium. We've everything's coming out of. A central location spread out in am. I correct in that assumption that it feels like it's it's it's huge in its full <music> but it just seems like it's a wider show than a typical firework show correct. It's to be honest with you. It's one of the most perfect campuses that any pyro could ask for <hes> and because of that with it allows us to do so a lot of times you'll see us break multiple shells at the same time <hes> three and four spread down that with <hes> and that's that's a beautiful thing versus you know taking one eight inch shell i can take two five inch or two four inch and i can fill the sky in the impact on the viewer is is sometimes much more significant depending on what you're going for and i love the wide open view. It gives us a lot of options of diversity <hes> if it was all narrow zero from a single site we wouldn't have as many dynamics in the display to keep it creative and fresh and change pace and and things like that that we do because it is widen and those front positions. I was talking about the ten front positions. That's where the intricate comet sequence come from the minds and stuff from the front brings it up front front to the audience closer to a more intimate feel and <hes> the impact of that is i. I like to think quite impressive. The crowd generally responsive shots shots <hes> quite a bit and they're done in volume so we're shooting ten positions. I may shoot three shots from each position on the same q. So there's thirty shots at are all going off right at that moment. <hes> like for example when we did guns and roses <hes> welcome to the jungle when <hes> i i won't replicate it because my voice won't work but when axel screams and he goes yeah you know what i mean. I shot off a thousand whistles from each location right at the moment. Yes it a ah multi shot and four seconds from each location and it scared the the poo out of people. <hes> you know what i mean. It was it was it's hilarious and exciting to watch because you want to kind of catch people off guard sometimes keep it exciting and entertaining and at the same time the wow factor is is there and so those fronts wants give us that opportunity so the white canvas here is is beautiful. That's just a serb still imagining remembering back to guns and roses you mentioned <hes> a little bit ago an and you're tossing on his great terms of your comments in mind and shells and things like this but you also mentioned that e match is that something that's roughly akin but way more impressive than the electronic igniters. We used model rockets as a kid. Yes so it's funny you use that as an example. It's it's very close e matches regulated and you can only buy it with a license. They have some intermediary devices are similar to the igniters that you have on model rockets rockets but i like to think that what sparked me <hes> into <hes> unintended yes yes into fireworks was was my father's introduction of model rocketry <hes> i i used to build model rockets well over six feet tall it you know when i was a kid and my dad was very engaged in that process but there was a time period where it lost. Its excitement for me. <hes> we weren't involved in a local club which might have taken it to another level. Ah you know getting into liquid-fuel compositions custom fuel but <hes> i started my pyro experimentation actually taking those igniters and building my own concoctions when i was when i was a kid back when the laws were a little more loose about these types of things i don't recommend people do that today <hes> but i did dumb things with some level of intelligence and safety and mind using those igniter so it's funny you mentioned that but art art are at night. It's very similar. <hes> we call me match <hes> it has a little bit more pirate in on the end of the on the end of the match there one time use only so for each. Shell each effect that u._c._s. Shoot off. We have to have any match <hes> that integrates that shell <hes> into our electronic system system and how many of these would you go through in an air venture within a single adventure performance any ideas of numbers. I believe well this year. I i believe we used up. We do other fusing techniques and not all shots are tied to an individual <hes> e match but <hes> i believe this year that we used to bounce sixteen hundred e matches per display but there was a considerable amount more effects we we had you know again. Fusing zing multi-shot effects things like that that we have we did just under about four thousand individual effects for the display that you saw on wednesday night and saturday night. It is interesting that you you brought that up. How 'cause i was <hes> watching video a little while ago about how <hes> rockets you know full-size <unk> space rockets are lit which is something you don't really think about that much but the russians essentially just stick a two by four with an igniter up in the nozzle <hes> and then for that you know for the big soya's rocket like sixteen of those have to go off at a at the same time for the rocket to <hes> to go off the pet really yep clough. That's the russians are brave guys and <hes> and i don't mean to stereotype but they they they have <hes> they have a tradition of of simpler solutions that just a giant match you know just put it matching their and and and off we go is digi have space program in the works. I i'm always looking for new ways to capitalize on hire altimeters altitudes so you talked a little bit about <hes> setting up the <hes> <hes> the show do you. When do you actually do that are are you able to set up during the daytime or does the daytime airshow box. Get in the way of that. Yes <hes> and yes <hes> yeah a again in airshows. We've done other airshows but e._a. Is even more unique and complex because the volume of traffic that you have here in the space <hes> we do set up a we generally get on site on monday even though our first show isn't until wednesday <hes> and what we do you to accommodate an active airport and air show box like we have here at e._a. Is we mobile mount. Everything <hes> we have a semi emme trucks and trailers that we rent specifically for the event that we build out onto so that we can do <hes> before the show is in a very short appeared time roll out these thousand plus mortars that we need to shoot off fireworks into position have all the angles already be set <hes> and and so we do those buildouts <hes> some before we get onto site will will prebuilt out some of the trailers and some of the trailers will just bring down the equipment will build them once we get on location and and <hes> that's how we're able to do it. Generally we're wants. All of the shells are dropped. We can't drop the shells into the mortars until we are onsite and generally generally on show day. <hes> is when we do that and so <hes> that requires a very cory cory graff kind of effort and same thing once we roll the field a lot a lot of times. It's kind of a parade when when the air boss gives us permission roll the field you'll see <hes> about a dozen trucks that come down kind of in a parade down <hes> the runway and get out into position. You'll see me out in out there. <hes> prior to the night air show between the daytime show in the in the night air show directing all of these trucks into position <hes> and they drop them. They stabilize them. They will then <hes> wire up the primary bus lines if you will to our are electron ix that we have out in the field. We'll do some tests <hes> all during that time period prepping for the night show and we can generally get it ready to rock and roll well <hes> in about an hour with the way that we have set it up which is i like to think was pretty innovative when we started back in two thousand ten <hes> in aerospace and and we had proved that <hes> with.

I'm going game personality billy. What do you have for me on Dion Waiters Word Association <hes> muscular really instead of fat okay? That's interesting <hes> Roy. What about you <hes> shooter? Mike volume shooter suggests that he makes them at high club on earned arrogance not yet because I got him as being pretty edgy to would would you not <hes> I haven't been as a personality type. Somebody who is hard we enjoy his personality because of that arrogant and because he thinks he's he thinks he's always open and he thinks he's the best player on the team every time and you don't want to mess with Dion waiters. Do you like if I say to you people in basketball. I don't know if he's all dark alley team but people to not be trifled with dion waiters is rough around the from the mean streets affiliate. He makes reference to it. Yeah I don't WANNA I don't want the smoke from the waiters. <hes> it was interesting to watch him body shamed and hurt by on social media like it was interesting to watch it happen <hes> because he got injured. He heard his ankle like this is a guy who's been character smeared throughout out his time in the league you just heard it volume shooter ball hog unearned arrogance and the Miami didn't have a word. I didn't have a word but I I was GONNA say ragged a raw. Just I think of him as a very raw personality. <hes> none of you gave me that. Word you guys you guys didn't talk to personnel you. Guys were criticizing his game but the point I wanted to make is that this obviously hurt beyond waiters and just the idea of dion waiters <hes> being body shamed hard hard dion waiters being body shamed and hurt by it is very teenage body image problems like it's not exactly what I associate with Dion waiters and so now evidently he's back in shape because he got into the best shape of his life and he was doing those Players Tribune stories where he was talking about how crazy it was to get to that level of fitness and then the Miami Heat gave him in his son whiteside. That's first time the Miami Heat I've ever done anything like that. They decided to build around two knuckleheads buckle heads and everybody league agitated knuckleheads there and reputed knucklehead yeah because I don't want to calling them directly knuckleheads that would be an insult. It was weird though that that team would build around those to of course dion on waiters gotten great Schaefer contract year. It's the only time he's ever been in what many would call phenomenal playing shape. He was never one of these. You know athletic specimens. He always seemed to have a pot belly before before that year in Miami. It was noticeable the kind tape that he got in like it was. It's the thing that you accused James Harden enough. Yeah it will kyle lowry also noticeable when he got into really good shape like certain players they're they're a little rounder than others and when the waiters got integrate shape his game escalated and for that that that season look they they were pushing for a playoff spot he got hurt. He heard his ankle and they miss the playoffs. He was rewarded with a contract and he showed up into camp not in the best shape and then he was an unprofessional rehab is what I heard Unprofessional Professional Rehab and you know people around the facility were saying of dion waiters and Hassan whiteside. It's the reason I feel comfortable calling them..
