China, You know, that's when they really made me angry the past few weeks when this debate was going on, this shows how biased even the local media is for sometimes. Unfortunately, now we know about the sun, but even something TV stations the way they covered the story last week when school started I was watching Fox 45 on Wednesday who was usually good, and they usually do more investigation and all the other stations. They covered the story as they went to Carol, Canada. The only time the bottom organization will go to somewhere like Carroll County because they want to highlight. Most school districts went back, and they were wearing masks. But Carroll County is being so dangerously then where mess you know, so there's this pressure and this bias that they put on even they don't directly say it. They never covered another part of the story. They didn't say why. Master? I mean, I think the mass controversial has been proven one way or the other, but yet they make it like why is suddenly the default. You have to wear a mask, And if you don't wear a mask, that's just crazy, and you're living dangerously and wild. So you know, it's just because these fools listen to everything The government says they think that the government has only answers. They're not They've never considered the possibility the government could be deceiving. You government could be lying to you that there might be another agenda here by the way, summer said. County was the other school system that did not Order masked up, but they're not in the Baltimore Metro. So I'm assuming that's the reason why they didn't go to their stations.

You know, we have a lot of kind of smaller venues around town, The Arvada Center for the Arts, a spectacular the Lone Tree Center is a great place to see a show The pay centre in Parker's outstanding They don't hold very many people. So no matter where your tickets are, you're like right there. It's really, really nice. And they get some really good acts out. And John is one of those acts. So, Dave, I'm sure you're excited. Do you even know who's that? Can't wait. You know exactly how many Absolutely no plan. No idea. So joining us now is the bass player for the band. You've never heard of Dave that that Zac Brown band John Driskell Hopkins. Welcome back to the show, my friend. How's it going? It's going well, It's going well. But you know what's funny, John? I just want you to know and I want points for this and some grand scale. I knew that you were playing at the pay centre in Parker on Thursday. I no idea Zac Brown Band was playing this weekend like No clue. I follow you, buddy Fiddlers Green Friday and Senator Have you ever played the settlers before? Twice before. I love that venue, man, and some some people in Denver hate on it because they're like it's not as good as red rocks, and I'm like, but it's a great venue. The weather's always nice. Yeah, it's nice, you know? Yeah, so we love Red rocks, too, But we have to play white. We have to play four shows. To do the same numbers that we're going to do it. Fiddlers. Yeah, and and where? That's why we were doing Coors Field before because we could get 40,000 there. Um, but reverses a totally different experience, so we're super excited to be there as well. Like I said, I love that venue. I first time I went. I was like, this is awesome. Maybe it's because I'm from Florida, and it's too hot to sit outside. In an amphitheater there to actually watch the show. So this is a nice change to not have to play in the humidity. Uh, let me ask you a few questions because you've got a great album out. I listened to it after I set this interview up for the first time Lonesome High is the is the name of the new album. How How do you? How is the music that you work with? Was Zac Brown band. How is it different when you are just working on your own and kind of do in your own vibe like what is what are the two distinct differences there for you, or are they that distinct? Well, I mean, I think to the to the average listener. They might find a lot of similarities in them because we come from the same place musically. Um and I'm mostly responsible. My biggest contribution to Zach Brown Band is the vocal Harmony area. And you know I'm going to do that on my record, So it's It's very similar in that respect, but for me all the difference in a show of my own and a show of that ground band. Is that all of these songs are about my family and about my experience and and my personal life. And even even if some of that is intertwined in Zac Brown band, and a lot of it is, it's still a different different thing. When you're singing about Your own kids or your own, Uh, time with your grandmother or your own experience with your friends in college and that kind of thing, you know, so that part of it is always going to be used for me. I loved eight tracks and Daddy's Cadillac because I got to tell you that song. I just told my 12 year old daughter this story the other day, and John is from an area of close to where I'm from. So we have that same kind of You know, childhood redneck experience, But I told my daughter who's 12, right? You know if I go out to dinner with my daughter and I have a beer, my 12 year olds like all judgy, she looks at me and like Mother, Really, I'm like it's one beer. I'm eating. It'll be fine and I told her, I said, When your granddaddy would come home from work, he would pour himself a scotch on the rocks and we drive around and visit people. Like and everyone's house. He poured himself another drink. You know, this was the seventies. It was the glory days and that song the eight tracks and Daddy's Cadillac. It just kind of took me back to my dad and my dad had a Buick 88 this giant diesel Buick, and we just drove all over the place. And it was it was. It was a good kind of thing. So you know, and that's where I first started listening to music as a as a lyric guy, and, you know, really paying attention, and it was whatever Dad was listening to. And the fun thing about that song, and I'm glad you of it. By the way. The fun thing about that song is that there are eight different songs reference in that song, so there are eight tracks and Eight tracks and that he's kind of like, what are some of those old songs that you still like when they come on. And maybe you're by yourself. Maybe you turn up the volume and sing along with Barbara Mandrell or you sing along for me. You know who it is. It's an Murray. To the Canadian songbird. When I hear her, that just is my father and I, you know, and I just crank up and Marie and we sing, and it's awesome. What are some of those songs for you? Well, I mean, I'm on the rock side. If anything Steve Perry does from Germany makes me want to turn it up. He's got a new Christmas record coming out. Um, you know, so I followed some of these heroes divine on On socials and keep up with that, while I'm trying to keep up with all the things that my 12 year old is showing me, you know, with the new music, but there are other things. I mean, if I if I'm somewhere at a barbecue joint, not here. Marty Robbins song? Yeah. That's the kind of thing that my dad was super in love with when we were when we were really very small. So, like things like El Paso and these classic tenancy classic Western towns always struck a chord with me, J and Marty Robbins said. That awesome helmet hair like it just looked like it just snapped off at the end of the day. So how would you describe Lego? Exactly Exactly. How would you describe the music online? Some high like, how would what genre would you? I have an idea, but I want to hear from you first. Well, you know, the way that I described. The people is its arena folk, You know, I mean, you It's like this big, triumphant moment with my favorite, you know? Like Massive stack of harmony. And then there's this quiet, pensive moment with, uh, you know that tear jerker. And then there's a country song. And then there's a bluegrass song, and so it's got this folk element But the harmonies gets so big and I can't stop. You know, uh, putting everybody in the band to task with these intricate parts, And so it seems like Arena Rock, but at the end of the day, it's more arena folk. I was going to go Roxy Folk is what I was going to go because it's not. It's not really blue Z. But there's definitely I got the folk very, very clearly because the harmonies are beautiful and Uh, the girl who sings on good morning believers like her voice. You could drop that on the record in 1971. And it would have been the most incredible hit because she just has that pure, beautiful, clear voice. You know that She's an indigo girl. Oh, get out of tune. I didn't know that. Yeah. Emily Failures is, um, is the bonded to go girl named me raise the brunette and I've did a Christmas song with both of them as the Indigo girls and wrote this Good morning believers with Emily and This is she's just pristine voice is just absolutely now now that you said that now I'm thinking, how did I not recognize her voice Because it's hard to. It's hard to sometimes recognize them when they're not together, But those of us who are developed followers Um, can can pick them out for sure. They're like the Siamese twins of harmony. You cannot separate them because you can't hear it..

And, you know, I know that I have a lot of listeners in the music business music related businesses Music city I mean, good grief. Yes, of course. If you're not a musician yourself, you're not in the music business. You probably know somebody in that business and you know how the business has changed significantly. And one of my favorite universities. Right here in the Middle Tennessee area is Trebek's Trevecca. And you know, I get to rub elbows with a lot of professors out there, as you may know, on a pretty regular basis, you know, doing some work over there as I have over the years and is actually one of my friends. One of the Dean's over there said Hey, you know, there's a guy who wants you to You ought to get together and talk. And he said he is in the music business area, and it's just fun to talk about how an industry has changed so radically and then you just think about other industries and how they may change in the future, and it's very, very related. And because you know, one of things that we do when we buy stocks were buying the rights to the ownership and the earnings of businesses. And how do they make money? How do they actually adapt? And how they evolved based on what's going on. Well, this is a business that has evolved significantly and gone through tremendous changes. It is the music business and Here with me for this hours. Give me a lot of fun. I think I think because I love this topic. Vince Wilcox, a professor over there at Trevecca and a music business attorney as well. Welcome, Paul. Thank you so much.

I think it's gonna be fun because I think it is really I you know, I start reading your book, and I'm highlighting staff and I'm I'm bringing little tabs on things. And I thought, you know, I'd be kind of fun just to hear what you have to say, because I do have a lot of people. Friends of mine. And and clients. Quite frankly, yeah, yeah. So I know this is one of those little podcast segments and I'm going to be sending out to various friends of mine and go. Hey, you need check out this hour? Because this is kind of now. You have been In this business for quite a while. Yeah, I have to tell me your story. How did that all start? I'm one of those odd people who actually has been able to make a living in the music business for over 40 years and I've never won a Grammy. I've never played to a sold out show at the Bridgestone. I'm not a multi millionaire. But I have been able to make a living in the music business. And it started over 40 years ago. Um, when my wife and I moved to town for her to finish up her undergraduate degree at Trevecca Nazarene University she went there to she went there to write, and, uh I ended up thinking, you know, I'm in music City. I love music. Why can't I make a living in the music business? So I literally bought a music directory and went door to door to about 40 different places trying to beg my way into the business. And finally, I got a job at a record label but accepted really working in the mailroom working in the mailroom. Exactly. Really. Okay, working in the workhouse. I was not. I thought I had read that, but I couldn't remember. Yeah, yeah. I mean, that's exactly what happened. I worked in the warehouse for a couple Years and I learned a bit literally learn the business from the ground up, moved up through customer service and sales. And at the end of 10 years, I was vice president of marketing responsible for promoting over 100 New releases a year. You see this this is and just let me back up and make a point on something close Having conversation with a guy about this yesterday. And he was talking about how to make it how to become successful in anything And he says, You know, I've heard so many times. Just start at the bottom start at the bottom started the bottom and I said, Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, There are entrepreneurs, people that own companies, and they've literally done every task at their company. Me. Yeah, you know, at one time, there is no shame in starting at the bottom because you learn everything and especially male ruin the music business. You get to know everybody in the business because you're getting their mail. Right. And for me, it was when I was working in the warehouse handling every piece of product I looked. I could see who the producers work. It's you the songwriters were I see who the artists who actually saw who are a big accounts were and I I literally learned that business from the ground up and At the end of 10 years because I have been playing and singing and writing in high school and college, I thought, you know, I'm getting to the age. If I don't make that leap now, I never will so for five years and resigned I produced, recorded wrote and toured my own music. Did 100 dates a year for five years? Got on the radio had three numbers a bunch of work? Yeah, it was, but I I'd learned how to do it. And I had a lot of fun doing it. And so I had three number one singles and our little genre got to play the Ryman Auditorium. Historic Raimond on desperately need. It was great, you know, and all that. Before I was 36, you know, so Wow, And then about that time my wife said, you know, oh, man, our kids are getting older. I could use you home more. And so I said fine, And just a few months later, I was recruited to become eventually vice president of sales for another large music company responsible for over $40 million in sales annually. And did that for a few years until I realized that selling shrink wrapped plastic. There wasn't going to be a big future in that eventually and the team that I had over 40 people on my team that those distribution jobs are being done by literally three or four people now, so it's just as you mentioned before. Moving from the technology technologically changed everything right technology streaming. And you know, uh, the when I got started the music business, You know the lot. The overwhelming majority of products sold was physical products. I mean, actually, when I started Eight tracks, cassettes and LPs. And, of course in 84 removed two CDs that became the predominant format and then in 2000 streaming hit it was it was a blessing and a curse. Because you may have remembered Grokster and Napster. They were illegal peer to peer. Absolutely Yeah. And the number of individuals who illegally downloaded that music principally college students write a 40% reduction in worldwide recorded revenue from 2000 to 2014, like, kick the industry right in the shins, and they had to dramatically. Um, uh, retool everything they did, and a lot of businesses who weren't willing to make that transition went out of business or were acquired by other companies. Well, you didn't. You didn't have the loss in quality that you used to have. When you put your cassette recorder in front of your friends speaker now, I never did this. I didn't I was I was, I don't know. It was always think the idea of taking music that didn't belong range always bothered me. But I didn't like loss in quality. Good. Like I still do it. I still buy stuff. You know, if you look in my this is all bought music on here. I don't do this streaming stuff as much. I don't even know how it works. Which is you might have to teach me But you know, I do actually listen to things on here, but I'll buy something and you know that is the thing that happened is you don't have the loss in quality anymore, Right? Right? Not not as much. I mean, out now. Record albums, record albums, people are buying like Help he's again. I'll come back to that. We'll come back to that. We'll go back there..

Tape that: Dutch inventor of audio cassette dies at age 94
"Let's jump into tech fan here since you know we. We just mentioned about recording stuff off the right. Yeah yeah kinda sad news and we're also doing this as part of our wookey. Trolling thing but I saw this i. I'm i'm kinda glad. I i saw you know five seconds while i was on a lunch break looking on my phone. I saw and i thought. Oh that'd be something we're talking about so go ahead. What well this is This is the guy who invented tightly. Walton's died at the ripe old age of ninety four. Yeah a law people forget nowadays that philips the dutch company invented this stuff named ventured the compaq says as being the lead on the compact disc. It's funny his goal. I'm looking at the los angeles times. Obituary that you linked his goal is making tapes and their players. Far more portable and easier to use because. Look the cassette. Tape wasn't the beginning of Recording to a magnetic tape they had real to reel that that was invented and twenty three And they had a in recording studios in radio. Stations is early as the thirties and it was very complex stuff to use. This guy took that basic concept and although the tapes were a little different And he wanted he had. He carried a block of wood in his pocket and the goal was to have the player and a tape. Take up about same amount of space and you can't really argue with his success And think about you know he. He basically created an entire industry from his invention. So while we talk about this guy. Let's talk about the cassette tape as well. Because it's our wikipedia. Wiki trolling Commonly called the tape cassette cassette tape audio cassette or simply tape or cassette. It would to me. It was always those were always interchangeable. Do you got you got a blink tape you gotta cassatt you got you and you had really two kinds you had the prerecorded cassette which was records like. We were talking about earlier albums Do you remember the single cassettes. It would be one song young. Rip off to me. I think i had a couple of days. Oh everybody hype blank tape. Yeah it was just people people. Some people want to listen to singles call Yeah there's two things that conduct strikes strikes me about except tape. First of all is the miniaturization they something that was expensive and very fiddly a bake. There's something really was only yes. They're professionals or for very rich people. Yeah and they miniaturized it to something that the allowed portability and transform them the way we listen to music but the second thing for me. I you know anybody who's ever use cassette tapes now the every now and again there. We go wrong with tangled up in your player and it used to be the you know if a tangled up. Somebody's car you wonder. If sometimes you just wander around on the street or in accomplish something you need to see. The massive tangle of time resources obviously yanked out they call yanked till the bits that the come off and then and the end it was broken at that point and then just come thrown on the street when people to listenable A new see those long around but generally they were absolutely you know they were pretty reliable. Not particularly high quality but pretty reliable. And i think the reliability they built into that platform it really astonishes me more than anything else because it was completely mechanical and yet You ninety five percent the time. It was relatively flawlessly. It was introduced in september nineteen sixty. Three came in two forms already recorded content in prerecord content. Remember when you found out that you could stick a piece of paper or something in the little hole at the top and record over. A prerecorded tape mess right. Yeah that little tab out so you could. Nobody could record over that. That six you'd make you'd make a mix tape for someone. You had a bus. That little thing screwing up my mix tape.

'cause i was i was i was. I was because i was thinking about that because i have a feeling internet activity at some point in time. Is that that desire to everything to be online is going to diminish some point because everything has its point of peak in that kind of recedes. I think once people are kind of used to the internet. I would not be surprised. The analog becomes more common so my thought would be record players. You know stuff like that. You're going to be a niche market for. It's it's yeah. It's gonna be niche. But i see ads for records all over the place so how much how much news you bought it. You were look searching record players for a while. Yeah that's why you're seeing their targeted ads. John this thing called internet. They know The they know what you're looking for this is this is also on the facebook groups on on a part of this is on the granted. There's some there's some you're on facebook for few.

It's going gonna be niche but i i still think people are going to realize that it's some point in time maybe having a sound system and all this is going to be a different experience. Because you're not on the go it's not the and the which most thing is you know like. Oh i'm i'm commuting and i'm reading the news or i'm commuting and i'm listening music.

"You had to quantify ready to go. I do have a quantify this album. I think you said earlier. How they're like you. Were kind of putting this in the context of you know they have like there there. Three this is the band that gave us dookie. They gave us nimrod plonk amazing. Amazing seminal pop punk albums and i can't overlook the fact that same band also gave us this so i think in that context like the also. The fact that this was made for the nhl is just so disingenuous overall. Just a. it's it's a horrible horribly prettiest. Horribly derivative album clap tracks the we will lose it all of it. I think it all but that being said it's it's not as bad. I got to honor the scale of like you know the other albums that have been done on this show. So i don't think i can go any lower than like negative two point five inch checkerboard. Response man. I liked the quantify. Appreciate that even though. They're not a skop in but forget checkerboard. Response is not is not transcendent. I don't know. I don't know if mike dumb would have rocked. Checkerboard wristband new checkerboard. Checkerboard is easier to say red blue. That one oh. God i'm remember. I'm remembering that now. The leather respond with pyramid spikes. I can i think that's good. The hot topic fucking belt. That's like slung. Not through a belt loop anywhere but this is not even hot topic anymore. This topic is they're they're full on. Tj max i can literally smell those wristbands again. You just brought you go to enough shows with start smelling really bad. I had i had. Yeah oh i did anyway. Checkerboard response. Fine though it's not as like some of the stuff that that you guys have reviewed is just like so offensive. And so awful. I don't think. I don't think it reaches that level of awful look negative. It sort of does. I think it's in the ballpark with some of the worst that we've done i mean i think if i'm gonna give it points for anything you know there's that one track that sort of sounds like a track from nimrod there's that one track that maybe you could throw on warning but that leaves eight tracks of like Garage rock revival revival full of mulinuu whoops and like the worst production of their entire career. It's bad it says nothing and again. It's literally like made for hockey games. And you gotta talk that even if it's even if short even if it's not that bad You know in terms of sheer like annoyingness compared to some of the other stuff. We've done like the fact that it's like made as a commercial product to be played. You know hockey games in the league. That really has a lot of problems with with racism and fucking like locker room bullying and shit anyway. I dunno i can't in good conscience give. This is good a score as a negative. Two point five i will not you know. It is really nice. That twenty six minutes long. That's very very kind of them to do that. So i will give them a little bit of leeway here but i'm still going to give it a negative for checkerboard wrist bands. Wow absolutely literally fucking took the words right out of my mouth absolutely one hundred percent. Negative for And i think it is again. I'll always argue this like it is fair to judge a band more harshly when you know what they're capable of and when especially when that band is so personal to you as an individual enduring the most critical period of like your development in your adolescence at least that you're conscious of as an adult you know this this you know crucial time. It meant so much to me And for it to have fallen for band have fallen so far It really offends me like on a deeper level and makes it even more awful. And the only credit i'll give it is similarly the brevity and you know a song and a half that i was like. Yeah i could listen to that. Maybe one more time so yeah. Negative four for me worship other albums that have gotten negative for going to pull the spreadsheet up. I was gonna say probably. Gratitude is in a similar ballpark right. Let's see heather. Gave methods of mayhem. Negative for i gave miley cyrus and her dead pets and negative for heather. An i both gave hinder extreme behavior. Negative for yeah. This level creates in clay. Yeah really bad as creed. Yes because i never cared about creed i never hold creed and high esteem. So they didn't have anywhere to fall for me. You know like this is serious. This is serious. I have not taken green day seriously for very long time. I yeah. I guess that's the difference here. I think i think of green bay being this like the. That's a sad thing. Is that i. You know after you know loving dookie like this is what i think of as green day i i can can expect this of them and i i kind of thought this is what it would be. I think it's different. Because i think that what green day has been doing for a long time is making really like maudlin and melodramatic music. That still sort of sounds like it's like a a a way to self serious version of green day. This sounds like a completely different band. Yeah it's really offensive. It's an affront on many levels. And luckily i did have a an absolute blast discussing it with you van. So thank you for being on the show. Thank you for having me back. I love it. I love being on. Make it stop. Hell yeah hell.

Learjet, the private plane synonymous with the jet-set, nears end of runway
"Very well. Kick it off with an item from cnn says learjet once the goto private plane for celebrities is ending production. How their jetty courses owned by bombard. Aa they say that they will stop production later. This year bombarded said that they will concentrate on the challenger and global aircraft which are more profitable but The company's gotta interesting history David started in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by bill. Lear and i think entry into service was nineteen sixty three for the longest time. It was the ultimate status symbol. Business jet i mean it. It's been shows up in song. Like carly simon song and it was flown by the stars and it looked good. I mean it. it's kind of. It's kind of unfortunate that we're going to lose an aircraft that looked fast and and represented the elite all those years but it. It's been around a long time. Originally goes back to a company that lear formed called swiss american aircraft corporation located in in switzerland but that That didn't last too long and were were moved but i understand that the first learjet was actually adapted from a nineteen fifties swiss ground attack fighter. Aircraft the ffa p sixteen so. I wasn't aware that origin till a little bit of research today. It's a class of aircraft that most as this article points out that most people don't want it's holds five to seven And it you know anybody who wants a fast business jet once more people so there. We're talking about globals and challengers so I guess it's just it's time has come on for and just unfortunate 'cause it's always been one of my favorite aircraft up including my nineteen seventy-two matchbox sky busters earlier jet bright little yellow and white body. So they will be missed. So i'm sure they'll be flying around for a long time well. And there's another factor as well to and you're talking about the five to six place said jet market and that is that the non three hundred of which they've sold about five hundred now is lower price so i think they just got Undercut by the competition also the fbi non one hundred which is even less expensive. So that's part of the changing market Now we've talked on the show years about the restructuring of bombay and they've been selling off in a low performing units. They've had a huge amount of debt to pay down. Which is why they've been selling them off. We talked here about when they sold the series their airliner which was sold off to airbus. And this is going to be Job cuts all over the place in a separate article. I saw that. I think about three hundred people will lose their jobs in wichita allow the production is based another arrest. Seven hundred i think are being lost in either quebec or ontario of because there's some being lost in both provinces i forget which one was the most but one was seven hundred and the other was a one hundred so big impact All the way around it does really make party a instead of the cult conglomerate that it was with all kinds of different things including a railcar business very much a single business entity and we've talked in the past how feel a lot of the business jet companies. They've gotten multiple businesses Textron's a great example And so this is really gonna make them highly subject to the you know the ups and downs of the market and fortunately the markets in an upturn business jets are selling well but boy. This'll be a real challenge for them. The future i think when there's a downturn in the market bill. Lear william powell. Lear was also an interesting guy course. he's He died longtime ago in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy eight. So it's been it's been quite a while and we've mentioned before that he actually invented the eight track Which many of our Younger listeners are not gonna know what that is. Tell us what is that. Because i don't know what an eight track is. I had one of those In my truck. Back in the let's see would have been in the Early seventies but he was a self taught engineer. But you know what. I didn't realize is that he was actually a call. Your trophy winner. But not for the learjet. Do you know what he won the collier trophy for david. No i didn't know he won a collier trophy. He did for the f. five autopilot. The autopilot was for the lear jet. Not for an f five. That was a test david. You passed double checking very good man. So yeah now bombarded says that they're going to continue to to support the aircraft ecorse encouraging and really to be expected But yeah it's kind of sad to see an old name like that disappear all right we have From marketwatch archer aviation gets one billion dollar order from united airlines on the same day announces. A deal to go public Max united airlines united is getting interested in vitale aircraft.

"eight tracks" Discussed on WHAS 840 AM
"Welcome. You're a homeless Kerry solvent, taking it through another weekend of getting those projects done around the home. Happy to have you And we're also going to have our friends in from Tarkett flooring where we'll be talking asthma and allergy free flooring. And this hour course brought to you by Blaster lubricants. He got to recommend the PB Blaster just yesterday. Theo to a friend of mine who had some problems with an air Reiter stuck on the end of the faucet news. How do I get this thing off? And the little PB Blaster spread on giving an hour and then, uh, It'll come right off. It doesn't marvelous job blaster products dot com. You can check that out. All right, let me give me that number and you can grab a line is we take calls about your home projects. It's 800. A 238255 Derek, welcome. Hey, Gary, How are you? Yes, sir. Fine. You I'm doing Well, Hey, I've got a quick question. I've got a house built in about 1993 and had a bump out at it on and I got up and under. I got across space and got up in under and I've got the Flexible. Ventilation for my eight track system. I'm wondering, and I'm sure that the heating system was not updated to include the bump out, which is probably around the 15 by 30 Rub out on Bond. I was wondering if I upgraded to a rigid H Vac system, which just flexible is to get to buy the Sponsors it would that help my eating situation? I mean, it's not cold, but you know, Well, I don't think it's much to do with the duck work. It is. It is maybe to the sizing as you alluded to Um, Whether that bump out has a cold air return that's bringing the cold air back into The unit itself. Ah, lot of times when we create additional spaces or even bedrooms. The cold air return is is critical. In other words, the furnace can blow warm air, but if it doesn't have a means to take air out before it's blowing air in It's not gonna warm up, Mother Nature won't let you compress air, right? So cold air return is I'm sorry. It does not have a cold every time. I think that's probably your issue, And maybe there's a way to put one in. I don't know. Okay. I'll have to investigate that man. Okay? I would say that is gonna be a bigger player than the type of venting you have. Thank you very much. All right, Derek ever going All right, take care. Alright, Mama. All right, there explains available Grab it, Ed, welcome. Hey, Ed. Yes. Hello? Yes, sir. Yeah. Gary, I have Ah, situation here. We had our new house built and we have Ah, drop in bathtub, And when you get in the top, the bottom is kind of spongy like it's not touching the floor. And I don't know if the box around it, which is tiled. I don't know if it was too high, you know, And it's leaving a space from the bottom of the cup to the to the sub floor, And I'm wondering how they could be fixed witches or a phone booth. Boys, how long you been moved into the house? Marty, How long have you been in the house? Uh, about nine months, okay? Oh, um, What type of tub is it? In other words is a steel tub. Or is that a plastic tub of fiberglass? Think acrylic top. It's colder, acrylic top, and it's got a couple molded at the bottom, where a couple of Wouldn't I don't know if they're shims or pieces of plywood, which rest on the floor. But apparently when they made the boxes raced up a little bit, So there's a space under that. And I don't know if I can wedge it or abused. Well, if I were you. I mean, this is what my advice would be. I mean, it needs to be obviously and you know, this said It needs to be supported. And if it doesn't, those tubs will develop cracks. There's no doubt about it. I would contact your builder. Um and you're going to get probably I would imagine you'll get a one year inspection anyway. Um, where they come in. And, you know, you know, Inspector home and take care of nail pops and things like that, But I think I would let them know that you have a concern on this that you know it's bouncing spongy. It doesn't feel well supported. Because to them, it would be an advantage of that tub happened to crack before that one years up and half the take That whole thing out is gonna be a challenge. Um, but, yeah, you would support it a number of ways and without really seeing it. I don't know if I can tell you what those ways would be, Uh, whether it would be shims and foam. Whether it be some sand. I just have to see him. Give her space on the underneath Kerry. You know where the drains in the water lands right in the basement where you could probably if I got up there. I could look and see underneath the top between the sub floor in the bottom of the tub, right? I don't know. Maybe I can ship it temporarily. I don't want temporarily, but definitely put them let them know it's soon as you can. And you know if you wanted to try and put a board under it or something that maybe even that would help. If you could straddle the Joyce and create support again. I think I got to see it before I can Help you tell you how to support it, But any support would be good. I wouldn't be looking at doing a total fix myself. I would just let make sure the builder nose and maybe he can even coach it through it. If you're willing to go ahead and try something Yeah. Okay. Well, I appreciate it. All right. Very good at. Thanks. Thank you. Better. Bye. Bye. Bye. Yeah. Most new homes. You get that one year inspection where they do a walk through and You know, you look at nail pops usually, but you know those tubs If you don't have good support underneath, it's kind of like not having good support underneath a ceramic tile. You run the wrist of that top cracking. And by the way last Sunday, you can pick up all these podcasts that the I Heart app at home with Gary Sullivan. If you want to take a look at Sunday's project of the week, we talk about putting in a heated ceramic floor and also Get this a heated ceramic floor in a shower. Pretty cool stuff, and that's the project week last Sunday, might want to take a list of that, Terry welcome. Gary? Yes, I have a leather chair that getting a little Warn looking and needs to be refurbished. And I wonder if you have any suggestions As what to use? Yeah, I do. I do. In fact, you remind me of something that probably need to do at my house. I've got to To. Ah, probably 21 year old leather couches on day were good couches, and I always kind of liked that little warn..

"Welcome back to big mouth. The media strip of pop culture podcasts. Were time has become an infinite loop and yet still managed to stay yes. We're happy not going anywhere at World Zoom again and I can spot sean pattern of those inboxes. Hello Charlene how are you well? I'm alright I'm all right. Thank you and you have you not bad busy week. He said rhetorically weirdly. Busying notice that we're very shows of pop news in the pop firmament in the in the endless paralysis of now but a party. Boy George has written six or seven albums. Lockdown is a good thing. I think that's amazing and I think he should release every single track. Nothing should go in the volt and we should hear the unexpurgated unagitated boy George knockdown albums. They should be locked with boy. George Yeah definitely I think he needs an added support says Dasa. He's he says I'm not saying every single thing is good so I'm saying if you wanted it down to eight tracks the eight best trucks or George Comeback while we're speaking of albums. What did you think of Lana del Rey announcing that she's GonNa Call Hanyu Album Chem trails? Washington up fantastic. Hasn't she going to Matt a bit? She's GonNa little bit crazy. Maybe she just needs opposite town and I loved her last album. That MS billions. What could change US stick Allen because she her whole sorts of I've analysis to trip to myself everybody complains?

How is it coping with broadcasting from kitchens? Now that we just go with the old famous is just like us. Yeah it's interesting obviously about TV so in a way that hasn't stopped but what always they've run out of TV. They outlandish leaving. Eastenders runs out in a week's time I think and the ultras run out already. I is about to start doing special coronavirus episodes so yeah. It's very old and we've seen a lot of people on zoom looking awkward a bit like this bomb. The tally which is most modern family did this before anybody didn't they? Would that brilliant episode? Where class took an apple. She can only interact with the family. Five watt up to face time twitter because she's one of the girls off and got married to a radio boyfriend. The entire upset takes place on the screen and it was genius. Unfortunately old tally is like not now what I mean now. I think things like I got news for you can of quite painful but then you know Johnny Burqas and John Nova shows actually really. I mean if the trouble is they're doing all these dramas playlets now and I think we'll get tied of looking at that very quick. Have you start looking at? These seem screens? You're not gonNA spend evening looking at Bonday as a way of kind of golden era moment like you know what like would ruin acoustic mate and it was basis. They've zillow about the song that performance in studio trickery may physically like that no Michael Hogan hideous say one. Tv In this in this is who's been the best.

This is why the Best Wifi is and if I turn around he just throwing house you've been playing against this ruining that's only what my office is like as well but yeah. I have lots of books on stuff and they were really impressed. Fit Range high coach low culture. You'd love it. Wonderful has not done treating you. She knows what I'm really lucky because I also hermit anyway. I work from home anyway. So it hasn't impacted me in the same way as I guess impacting people who announced I have space. I have two cats and I had a small human Is Pretty Calm? So yeah tonight about wonderful. What you've been binging on while in this. You know what the knowing thing. Is that the anointing is my small child. Because of lockdown all retains so. He's now away from most of the same house. I'm way which is bad news because it means I'm Kinda stuck watching her. Hit stuff that set. He loves the Teen Titans. Joe which is great the now so we will and just important days ago. He saw Simpson's for the first time and so a win are starting not from uptight. The decision to stay. Open season because the animation. Wades out just. Oh yes doesn't quite. That's not quite ready to seize. What's so we've started to every episode and it's proven wonderful but a great yet. It's a joy because I forgotten so much. So your fashion.

Talk Python To Me
Talking to cars with Python
"A couple of angles. I WANNA take here all around talking to cars with John Bursts. Let's start with science fiction. Yeah that's kind of not science fiction tours. It feels like science fiction so to me when I was in school is in college. I took just a couple of programming classes for requirements not a CS degree but to me. It felt like artificial intelligence. It was people working in Lisp and they were trying to pass the turing test. Like if you have a chat literally text chat with my program and you are tricked into thinking. It's a real human well. Then it must be real and that you know never really worked very well. One Jew was not very impressive right and then you know it felt like I was never really going anywhere and then all the sudden you know. We rented a Tesla not too long for a few days and it was just driving around on. Its own in traffic like that is really far from tax chat. Yeah right it's so that's why I say science fiction because I feel like that part of science fiction kind of arrived. Yeah. We're seeing a lot of incredible advances and I think that machine learning and artificial intelligence is accelerating that absolutely and you think python is defacto way to go about that for sure. Yeah my mind. Yeah for Yeah. Handling data for machine learning. I mean the libraries are out. There it's just super powerful tool for that now. You did a little bit of work around this kind of stuff. Can you give us a sense of just like what kind of libraries might be involved? Or what kind of even just kind of code we write. What kind of sensors are there like? What's that world? Look like as a fertile car specifically for Python dares layer on top of Ross called. Ross Pie which is an incredible platform for talking to sensors and collecting data. So sensor data get the view of the world around you or actually aiding controls on on a robot that python is the robot operating system. Yeah and Ross. Pie is the python. Api for talking to Ross. Yes so part of the the way this might work. Is You just treat the car like a robot? Yeah I think that we can as cars like you said. Get more and more like computers and as want computers to drive them. They're just robots. Yeah yeah well you know jumping just a little bit ahead to the Steph will come back to this Self driving more. Maybe but we were talking earlier about just. Can we quantify how much this is true or not true about whether cards are like computers and if you go by lines of code it's definitely in the realm of computers absolutely lots and lots of lines occur random modern car? What would you say yeah too? Many to count too many for one person to manage to. I did a quick search earlier and I you know according to Google. I'm not sure exactly what it's based on this on. But it says that the modern car with their infotainment and their cloud stuff and all that sort of thing says uses basically a hundred million lines of code. That's boggling. Yeah Yeah so. That apparently comes from wired. Give you a sense. That's five percent as much code as all of Google as a company like all of their services Wild we also looked. And if you look at windows. Ten windows is not typically accused of being like a thin bloat free operating system. I mean neither is Mac. Os either really. But it's definitely not considered like a lightweight like many operating system. Yeah yeah the real deal well windows. Ten has fifty million lines of code to the modern car. We're not talking. Self-driving Tesla or Kia or something right. Yeah absolutely lines of code. That's a serious bid of programming. Yeah it's it's the incredible effort of decades. Yeah so it's pretty interesting just to think of how much computation is going on. Also I think I heard somewhere that the there's not a central computer but there's a bunch of little microcomputers and they need to interact with each other right. Yeah absolutely little computers all over the car that are talking to them to each other in their own sort of protocol or the can protocol which prime minister that. I wonder if car technology had been adopted later. You know how much would this? Just look like micro services with discovery. Yeah Yeah Greg Greg question right because it's not Jason Buzzing around the wires it no no. It's just bites. Yeah which is fine for performance and stuff but I have no idea what the connectivity like the network cabling between these little microcomputers are but there's a ton of computation going on in these cars. Yeah absolutely every I mean from from the big stuff like pushing the brake pedal to the little stuff like turning on an overhead light. Everything is in a modern car is letting it so the cars aware of it in many places when you do things like that. Right I mean traditionally older cars. Maybe there's some little micro controllers in like an eight set eight track cassette player Ed or something but when you push on the break that pushed directly on a lever which pushed on some hydraulics which then pushed on a break. Whatever they're called see. I don't know what it makes it. Stop right increase friction. He goes in the car stops but now not so much. I mean it's like all the stuff that you do turn it on. Winter wipers like my car is fly by wire right. I pushed on the break episode of the gas. And it interprets what that should mean for it to go absolutely does so. There's there's a lot of data's zooming around right. Oh Yeah Yeah yes you gave a talk on this at Portland Pediatrics Python. Me Nope right. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's cool in all definitely linked to the video that was recorded there and linked to that video there. But you had this graph of like all the data going along just a Kia some kind of Kia neuro- or something celebrating right. Yup Yup just the the data that you have to the noise you have to filter through and just what the bites look like as as you're looking at activity growing yeah right. Yeah Super Cool. Let's talk about that for a while. Let's talk about cars surprising. Not Surprising under I. It's a little surprising to me. I guess but cars generally have the same architecture. Burr like their communication protocols in their hardware and stuff right. My understanding is the cars at least have to have an interface for this obt to port. Whether that's an international or a federal standard. I can't remember but a wave for things like emissions tests to plug in and pull the vehicle for data very specific data. So there's that and most cars are still using this camp protocol on this canvas. I think that that's pretty much the standard over his things right right right and I suspect that's largely due to the suppliers. Oem'S IF YOU'RE GONNA make car you don't make the brakes from scratch necessarily may buy them from Bosscher. You buy them somewhere else and those things off to be interoperable and the do there's also a history of things already having safety qualifications so the work that's involved in having a new technology brought into a car is incredible and so if something already exists that has the safety rating for it. It can be very cost effective to just
Apple Watch Outsold The Entire Swiss Watch Industry In 2019

CNBC's Fast Money
Online spending on track to hit a new record this holiday season
"It's been a record record couple days for online shopping and just a few hours left in Cyber Monday. Retailer seemed poised for another big hall. Let's get to Courtney Reagan with the big numbers behind one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Hey Courtney Hey Melissa. So I'm here at one of Walmart's fulfilment campuses. This is actually one of six that is working to fulfill all of those online line orders. That are coming in on cyber Monday. Walmart does expect that today may end up being one of if not its biggest day of the year for those online orders and so far some of their bestsellers include the apple. Air Pods that INSTA- pot. Apparently not everybody has one of those yet the Ninja Air Fryer the video fifty five inch TV and the Nintendo switch but in total beyond just Walmart Dot Com. The National Retail Federation does expect the sixty nine million Americans will shop at some point today. you mentioned those records. Adobe is expecting this days sales to grow out twenty percent over last year to hit nine point four billion dollars. And that's on top of the records Kurds. That were already set online for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. But what's interesting. Is there still a lot of shopping. That's going to be left done tonight. Remember ever in the old days when you had to get to work to use the high speed internet on your desktop computers. That's what we saw pete sales much earlier in the day during work hours. Now it's much later at at night. The golden hours adobe expects will be between seven and eleven. PM Pacific Time. So that's ten PM here on the East Coast. Once the kids are in bed and all the chores are done. That's when they think the shopping will get started now. Of course we are getting some preliminary data for how things have been shaping up online edison trends at least analyzed. It's about three hundred thousand transactions from Thanksgiving and Black Friday. They say that Nordstrom has actually seeing the biggest increase in customer spending online compared compared to last year with a sixty percent jump Walmart close behind with fifty three percent in the Amazon with forty nine percent target however and J. C. Penney those spending online numbers from these transactions samples fell about twelve and fourteen percent respectively. We still have an awful lot of shopping and time left to go and we know we still have a decent season left even though it is six days at shorter. So be careful when you're ordering online and you're looking at the shipping dates just a little bio buyer irby wear for Meteo beco- view of all. Right thanks for the tip. Courtney Reagan What are you doing over there? He is your modem on the Fritz on this one of those people to coordinate when when you go to the work for the high speed Internet. I'm one of the. That's what you're doing is doing right now answering your question if you WanNa have a conversation about retail. I can do that as well very much. Still by eight track tape players hundred percent should say that retail looked the trades are interesting Cosco reports on December twelve. It's had a huge run but now valuations traits it thirty two times next year's numbers we've been both China Carter. Braxton worth through appears every Friday on the options action which would back this this Friday after being usurped this past week by the holiday he talked about this for the last six months. He's been correct. I think you've got to sell it into earnings target catching up the Walmart art finally on Valuation But Walmart at Twenty three times which is sort of the benchmark for everything in my opinion is just too expensive in this environment one thing. I don't know if we break out. His is buy online. Pick up in store which I think is a really a difference. It's a very big difference right and and you invariably by something else when you're there right so That's one interesting part. I think you know target sighted a number of other ones do. I think there's GonNa be retail winners here. We've seen some of the ones is that don't work right. I don't know if macy's can turn it around I think I'm not optimistic on that one. But I do think that I do think Nordstrom has a much better chance as a much better chance and even though the socks more expensive. I'd rather be in a Nordstrom macy's both of those stocks extreme streaming serenely high interest percent about. Yes we just got numbers Nordstrom and they were fine although if you look again they're they're they're full price versus their offer Akwa their sale price two very different stories perpetuating the story they get a little boost out of their New York flagship store adding some some gross margin. But when you look at target and Walmart I would go back to those. Because I think they've been such great stocks people own over the last twelve months but The relative victory that Delta in their online sales growth has been so extraordinary and so price. I stand in so much the part I think if people said when they said guess what targets not going to Amazon and that's exactly part of why the stock has done so well so hard for me to say that that's not in the price. I think the bar for both of those folks into this holiday season is very very high. Amazon has been targeted or Walmart. Well no it has. I mean listen you know I think at the end of the day import remember that Amazon while they get about fifty percent of the online sales growth that exists out. There you know. Online sales are still ten percent or less of the total five trillion earliest of US consumer sales. So there's plenty I think that's why Amazon is kind of stalled here. Some of these guys have made some really good progress. They made investments over the last couple of years. That took some time to kind in a bear out and they're starting to do that. I'll just say one name to keep an eye on home. Depot had that gap after earnings a couple of weeks ago and it kept going I think about nine and a half percent peak to trough decline started bounce last week a little bit look pretty good technically coming off of a trend line that thing turn lower keep an eye on that one because I just think that there's a lot of concentration in some of these mega. Ah Big big box names and these home improvement stocks that have really outperform but if you look at the X.. RT which is a broader look at all of retail it's ten percent of the year really underperforming the SNP. So I want to keep an eye on some of these other ones. That are very crowded and I think guys Costco the way it reacts to earnings guidance will be very important for the weed tells me
Your Tesla Can Go Zero to 60 in 2.5 Seconds But Can't Get AM Radio
"To the curb overall the cassette decks, the eight track players the ashtrays landed but test is known GM is aware that they're all electric Chevy bolts AM radio won't pick up any AM stations. Because the electric vehicle Motors generate what's called electro, magnetic frequencies, and these have newbie on the same wavelength with AM radio signals. So the result is you get all this buzzing and interference all over the AM band. And as these Motors, grow more powerful. So does the AM static. And the problem is just getting worse. So instead of fixing the problem some automakers like BMW and Honda. They are actually dropping AM radios from their hybrids and electric cars.
