Challenges and opportunities of blockchain in the insurance industry
"For this podcast. We will be discussing challenges of blockchain in the insurance industry with special insights from ibm. And i'm very pleased to have mark mclauglin. Ibm's head of insurance strategy solution sales and partnerships worldwide mark. Thank you for joining us today. Could you please give our listeners. A quick introduction on yourself sure thanks lead and thanks for having me on as you said our head of strategy for the insurance vertical for ibm a teams pulled together. Ibm's hardware software services cloud and our business partners to deploy value for the insurance industry. I've been doing that myself For twenty twenty five years now. The first solution i built for the industry was artificial intelligence back in their early nineties for a large insurer here in the us and that solution is still running today which Either tells you something about our industry or something about my coding one or the other. so let's go was your coating absolutely exceptional. Not sure that's really really. No thank you for that introduction so as you know and hearing two blocks and we always ask. Our guest is first question which is what is blockchain. And how does it work the way i. Obviously i think most of your listeners. Are well aware that there is a difference between the blockchain enabled currencies like bitcoin and ripple and the actual blockchain functionality itself. The way i think of it is. It's a shared ledger. The trusted leisure. It's an ability for multiple entities. Who don't necessarily have a one hundred percent trusted relationship. They are business entities with different interests. Different goals but you can establish a common ground wear a set of documents they said of processes a set of data is maintained by a group across a business network and that is maintained in a way that is immutable Where everybody can see the changes that are going on and everybody has a record of what's going on you know whether it be you know data around contract or execution of a business process and being able to do that in a way that is trusted by all participants That can bake in features like smart contracts to help you automate some of those processes right. There's a lot of different things you can do. With the blockchain right currencies one of them but running a lot of shared business processes and other one of them and. i suspect. We'll be talking about that today right now. Thank you thank you for that. So as you are aware we've had a number of your colleagues on the inch. Blocks podcast from bos- expert within the blockchain in the insurance space. Now i'm curious to know from your personal standpoint. how would you characterize. The insurance industry's embrace of blockchain technology. Well i think high interest right. Insurers for a number of reasons are feeling the heat on innovation. Right whether you look at the you know. The forty six percent kager on tech investment. The last three years or the entry of of large-scale players like like paying on like amazon into more kind of online distributed type insurance ventures. Right whether you look at insurance being baked into other industries right when you go by airlines at the united states your offer travel insurance now as part of that process right. It's it's very different than the kiosks in the airport of old right. I think the industry knows that they have to figure out ways to connect to broader ecosystems. Knows they have to innovate and blockchain's one way to do that. There's there's definitely some great opportunities there's definitely some pitfalls but ensures you know high level of interest having a little trouble getting started in some cases and i think we'll dig into that as we go. Yeah exactly because you know we know we started our podcast mainly focus on the insurance industry in two thousand eighteen inch thousand nineteen. We spread out to cover other industries. Which is very fascinating to see the challenges and opportunities each industry have with regards to adopting mom blockchain but this is sticking for insurance for now. You know as you mentioned you had twenty to twenty five years experience in building solutions and partnerships ensures. Would you say that insurers are more or less open to embracing blockchain comparison to other previous or existing modern technologies such as cloud in ai to name a few. As you mentioned. You know you did this project in quite some time ago. How does blockchain compared to these kinds of technology. I think blockchain has great potential and as technology. I think insurers are are more than willing to embrace it. I think the challenges are the business model. Right i can take a And it and it's very easy to visualize. Hey here's here's a case. Where i could see how i might help me process a claim better. You know underwrite risk better advise in indentured. Better now actually getting it to do that is a little bit more challenging but visualize it. it's eas- right blockchain. It's a little tougher for the challenge. Isn't the tech. I think it's the use case behind the technology
Introduction to Cob: The Ancient, Natural, Tiny House Building Method with Dave Olsen
"Am here with dave olsen olsen completed. A cobb workshop led by younto evans in nineteen ninety-six and has had mud and sour dough on his hands ever since he began hosting natural building workshops in two thousand seven began instructing the revolutionary fast cobb mixing and building methods in two thousand nine and turned fifty in twenty thirteen based on off the grid. Sketti island he also hosts an apprenticeship. That goes well beyond natural building. Helping people develop responsible and environmentally sustainable lifestyles with enjoyment and ease. Dave has been very fortunate to have worked with many of the leading. Cobb builders of our time and to have a dynamic cobb and bicycle loving daughter and dogs dave olesen. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me either. Yeah it's great great to have you here. I feel like we've been following each other for years and years And we've we've traded some email so it's great. I'm actually getting to see your face for the first time here on the zoom. Yeah thank. i'm so glad to finally connect directly likewise like why so we're going to have to start with with the real basics. What is cop well. Cobb is a mixture of sand clay and straw that you mix together with water. So it's a it's a very simple Creation some people might say that. It's you have to have a specific ratio of each of those ingredients. I don't the the one ingredient. That's unbelievably flexible. As the cly or should you can have as little as five to ten percent. I don't know exactly how little you can go. And all the way up to one hundred percent though. The smallest amount is the amount that is needed to make the sand stick together. And the and the straw okay. So and when you say percentage you're referring to the percentage of the clay in soil the material that you're using to actually build the walls. The percentage of that material so anywhere between five to ten to one hundred percent lay in. I say one hundred percent. I've never built with one hundred percent. Clay only because A wonderful man who came to one of my workshops told me about it and showed me books and in korea. They've been building klay houses for hundreds of years. And so maybe even thousands of years so it obviously worked the but cobb specifically is designed to be The material is meant to have Sanding in it so so you know if you don't have very much sand that's okay. You have a lot of clay. that's okay but if you have a lot of sand and not so much clay it has to stick together of course otherwise. You're not going to have a building that stands up so you know very Nonspecific answer of because at least certainly in the workshops but in my own personal experience we just experiment with what we have to make it as easy as possible. Because that's really. The goal of this is the not only make something. That's unbelievably resilience. Long-lasting nontoxic unbelievably hugely outperforming. Any other building. That i've ever known but just to make it really quick easy and simple as possible. So i guess my follow up question. We've got the kind of literal definition of. What is cobb run. I guess what is ours. Cobb used in homebuilding it. What do you what do you do with the cobb. yeah Literally like you can see you re up there that those are called walls so in the building that i'm sitting in i live in The walls and the floor omega of certainly don't recommend building a roof out of conned Simply because cobb will absorb water and when it does absorb it will loosen or lesson it strength and so Building a dome out of cobb is would be a foolish thing to do in the climate. I loop in live in and i don't know of any climates. Actually were be suitable. So i wouldn't try that. So certainly some non cobb materials are needed for any building that you do build but the vast majority of the material for this Building this house is cobb because the walls are afoot to eighteen inches thick and Run from florida ceiling and the floor is completely off. The second floor is all. Would i considered putting a cobb floor on top of a wooden some floor but the same principle even though it's inside very likely to stay perfectly dry but if it doesn't or if there's a lot of vibration i just haven't tested a second floor cobb floor so you know out of my realm of experience but But yet no to lessen the cost of any building if you build it cobb. It's guaranteed to lower the cost. Because literally cobb is thirteen so i love the pond and i invite you to make as many cobb puns as you wish. This interview are there any climates. I was gonna ask what pilots do clock. What climates does cobb work in but it sounds like almost i should ask the opposite like are there any clients that cobb doesn't work in. I would be surprised. If there was a climate that doesn't work in Really hot climates. It's amazing in terms of keeping the building. Cool because it literally. It's just a totally different kind of building than what most civilized people are used to right. We're used to often wooden or metal buildings that kinda shredded trap. The air at least for heating and even for cooling i imagine condos and do that conferees It's constantly breathing. It doesn't it's not drafting. You feel it breathing. The air can get through the walls and Some very very slow transfer so you never get sick building syndrome in a call building which is really nice and The way that it performs as it. It's like a thermal battery so when there's heat in the air around it it will absorb that heat and Old it basically until the era rounded is cooler than the cobb and which case than it releases eat so it really moderates the temperature especially of the inside of the building that of any building. That's made out of cobb. So and that's what. I'm just enjoying in our climate here. We have a climate where in the extreme parts of the summer. It's quite warm. It can get up to thirty degrees celsius and probably over one hundred degrees fahrenheit and it's never uncomfortably hot inside our home ever doesn't matter how hot it gets outside in the winter. We we don't have a deep freeze At all so not makes building foundations here easier but It still gets to be about raising and between zero and ten degrees celsius all winter. And so and it's very humid so it's still quite cool in terms of human living and so we have a rocket. Mass heater that keeps our floor are cog floor which then emanates that keet throughout the home and so our feeder was warm or bodies are warm and the where cobb comes in is overnight when the fires coach the cov will Emanate warmth back into the building so even though it can be down to zero overnight In the morning it's bill sixteen degrees inside the house even though it was only maybe twenty twenty two degrees when the fire went up
Small Greenhouses: The How, What, and Why
"Wanna pick up an idea that somebody sent us in an e mail. Few months ago where they asked us to comment about some small ikya greenhouses now for people who don't know key is a big furniture store right. Coup doesn't kia. Well some people may not know but evelyn e. you know about these greenhouses. What what exactly are people asking about. What are they talking about here. It especially if you live in a small home or a small apartment and you don't have a lot of window space or your apartment very dry. These miniature greenhouses can be very appealing because it gives you some dedicated growing space. And it's a way to increase the humidity. Which for some house. Plants is really important. It cracks me up when i see these on pinterest planted with charming little succulents. Because that's the last plant that really needs the increased humidity of greenhouses fact. You're you're probably going to be doing them a disservice unless you leave that. Many greenhouse open all the time. But but i can't actually makes one called soccer and i'm sure that if i spoke swedish would pronounce that better which is very cute and actually functions and the reason that it functions is because the roof is hinged so you can open it up and have full complete to the inside of the little greenhouse and it's small it's like about eighteen inches wide and fourteen inches tall but you could still fit some really pretty smaller plants that need high humidity in a little greenhouse like that. But there it's a maiden hair furner erects or an apiece or something that needs increased shop but don't waste it on a bunch of succulents. That's not really what you need to do for them. And it's probably not large enough to grow any amount of food in either right now. It really isn't. And i get so frustrated when i see these things. Online that are not realistic. That set people up to fail. Because you have a bad experience with something like that and it's gonna turn you off from growing plants completely. If you wanted to start a few seeds in one of these little greenhouses you could certainly do that. But it's not enough. You're not going to be able to grow more than maybe like a basil plant or a rosemary. Plant something in there. It's just they're just not big enough on but the thing to watch out for especially is read the descriptions if you're looking online a lot of these things that are just charming are not functional. There are some beautiful like brass and glass greenhouses up there little mini ones. That would fit on a tabletop and they sit on a tray and the trae is a half an inch deep and to access the planting. You have to lift off the whole glass top. So you've only got a half an inch of soil in there to plant with. That's not gonna work for you the ikya one. Actually you can plant in. And even though it's made out of you know glass it's plastic. It does function. so you could. You could use this. For for instance a almost a terrarium. You could create a little jungle environment in there. Yeah you could and if you if in the ones that let let you actually plant directly in them if you are going to buy one of those beautiful ones that doesn't actually have a solid bottom to it. That's the kind of thing that you're going to have to use like a close. You might just put a couple of pots in there and then put the glass top down on top of the whole thing. But you can't actually plant in soil in that kind of a little mini greenhouse. It's it's almost a display item rather than a functional growing strider. And you need to. It will increase the humidity for those plants. But they need to be individually potted. And i think it's important for people to manage their expectations now I was looking around when when we decided to talk about this. I was looking around. Because i noticed that some people mentioned that you can use these inside or outside and and i'm sure you can put it outside. But why would you want to limit yourself to such tiny thing. If you're doing it outside you know if you want some outside protection so that you can grow more plants on the shoulder seasons early in the spring and and even into the winter there are larger structures. That are much better for this. And i was looking at the gardner supply company which is a company that i'm very fond of up in vermont. An employee owned company. They're wonderful and they have a several structures that fit over standard size raised beds that create this kind of greenhouse effect over a raised bed. The sides come up so that you can get in there and tend your plants you know. And you've got that protection that carries you into the winter or early in the spring and very reasonably priced. Yes and those are a much better. Bet if you're talking about outdoor growing for many reasons because they're they're lightweight they're plastic. You can fold them up in store them easily when the growing season is completely over and they give you much more space than a tiny little kia. Terrarium is going to give you. But if you are interested in doing this indoors and you want a little more space than the ikea soccer will give you my swedish accent soccer so you could just take and this is what i used to do. I would just. I would buy big old aquariums flea markets and garage sales and this was something it may not be quite as cute and charming as something that was intended to be greenhouses concerned. But it solid. It's all glass. So you've got a really strong thing there that you can plant directly in and it's going to give you more growing space so if you're somebody who's just been dying to grow a maiden hair fern or something that requires higher humidity than you can give it in your apartment. Start looking for those old fish tanks because those will really serve your purpose probably better than anything you can buy new
Try the "Root Pruning" Method of Transplanting Trees
"Fall is a great time for transplant. And you want to talk a little bit about a process called root pruning yes mark in an ideal way to make a long story short one of my neighbors southern columbus that if a hillbilly in to discussion he said oh yes i can move dogwood anytime i want to. I said well good luck with that. He said well you you watch knowledge i do it. He went out in the fall right about now and went out in terms of a dog. Would he checked. He checked also the depth of the roots. He found out they routes were not very deep so he went out about two and a half feet all the way around the tree and literally plunged to sharp speed in the ground and cut the roots period. He would just go straight down the shovel out And on one tree he did he. He puts shovel in every other winds shovel. In the one tree smaller trees he'd be put the speed and the ground. All the way around did not even begin to lift trant plant at all. You just simply cut the roots at a time. Where the so still warm visa moot re-growth when he moved them in the spring. They didn't even know that. Then move because the roots have started to regenerate It's his what he calls. He'll ways proved again. Just a kid through college doesn't make everything order and then nurseries for a long time have used a tool that they can run down through the rows of young plants. That is Round blade that goes into the ground about eighteen inches down and sides andro right down the role of planet and literally root pruning those plants in mass. So sometimes the hands sometimes by tractor. But it's an ideal thing to do right about now soils enough moisture to the amenable to working and insulin grow and everybody can be happy that way and so. Is this something that you would. You would cut the roots now for a spring transplanting or rick. I'm mark i did. Maybe i didn't explain that. Yes it's cutting them now. He will leave it alone period until spring. Go back out. Because he's he's used some what the tongue oppressors. That showed the outline that he had chosen. He had a white ribbon in the tree that kind of designated as his and he was then dig it and move it in the springs long about bound early march whatever. The water was enough out of the soil. You could work with it and it was Really worked he was two for two in In what he wants to do. Plus proven to me the college kid the another way so yes thanks for asking because you do the route twenty now you actually lift and move the plant in the spring.
Can I Prune the Top Out of My Indoor Hibiscus Which Is Getting Too Tall?
"He has a question about high biscuits. He says mine has been inside for two years but now it's too tall for the living room. Can i cut some off the top. Well mark the answer is definitely yes now I'm going to make a it was mark. Basically what just happened to my trees down. His best is obviously a tropical. And and it's apparently doing quite well and yes he can print now as crewing goes It will depend on the looks and condition to the plan. But i would remove any cross branches and things are right up against the trunk or staff i would then think going out even on each branch tip to about nobel no more than one third of the way from the tip back toward the trump and he could trim every branch tip on that plant He can because of obvious need he can take well. I have to guess at its height. But i'm gonna say he can take between twelve and eighteen inches the top so that it's more room size and then He would want to taper the plant. So it's just not at that point. He'd want to trim off more than one third of the tips of the branches as we get closer to that top so that it it will be If we will Think in terms of a bullet about very very strong copper jacket. Bullet is very very precise and thin and tall. My his plan is gonna because he's so he's going to be using something like the old musket forty five caliber ball where it'll be more rounded in there in terms of time I know of a few plants where this has been done. Oh my over the years. I don't know how any got to be but there there is proving that can be done it and be done now or if his plant does tend to defoliate In the middle of the winter at that point would be good time to do this the trimming back and so on so yes it can be bad I would try to be as cautious as possible. Try to as we really recommend on all plants outdoors oriented doors. Try not to remove more than twenty five or maximum thirty percent of the plant at one time so a good percentage of being in that top where he's got a short and down then the tip trimming and sending and so on By all means go for
Perennial Plants and Perennial Gardens in Fall
"And I know that not for reasons that you wanted to. But for other reasons at your house, you are redoing your. Some your perennial plantings this fall. Are You Yes, we are under construction for reasons not of my. Choosing. Seal in the past couple of days, I have turned a corner on this and I am now looking at it as an opportunity to redesign the garden at the front of my house. So right now, it looks pretty much like a war zone. There's everything has come up the trees, shrubs perennials, and I'm kind of getting excited about pow I'm going to replant so. That's my silverline I'm glad you mentioned that because this is a good time of year to Redo Perennial Garden. What we want to talk about in our main segment is not only redoing a perennial garden but also kind of standard fall perennial maintenance what you should be doing various methods because as always in the garden, there's never only one right way Yeah but. I often think that. One of the downsides of a perennial garden is that you get it planted and sometimes it seems like well, a lot of work to be honest to Redo it right. So you know I'm I'm looking out at one of my perennial bid, the job pie we has really taken over a big part of the garden. I Love Joe Pye now I love the plan it's very Pretty bad. It's really getting to the point that I should go in there and remove half of it. That's going to take a half of a day with a shovel and digging and lifting and all of that, and it's very tempting to do it. But fall is a great time to do it if I go in now and take half of my Joe Pye. Weed out. Then, next spring, I'm going to have that area that is ready to plant with something else, and one of the reasons that now is a good time to do exactly. That kind of thing is because now you can see that giant swath of Joe Pye in your garden, and you cannot deny the fact that it's taking up more space than you. Originally intended and really you need to move some of it in the spring you can kind of fool yourself because it's not big it's not in flower you can't see its full size, but there's no denying in fall when you look out over your garden, what has grown beyond its bound I'm grinning because it's like Ellen was in my head this spring. because. I was out there looking at the U. Petroleum which is the Joe Pye weed and I was thinking Oh, it's not so bad. You can't do that now. It is so bad. So this is a good time to either remove some perennial plants that have gotten out of hand or it who moved perennial plants that perhaps you put in the wrong spot you know that maybe this plant isn't as tall as you thought, it was going to be and so it's hidden behind something else like all of you Pretoria. Or maybe the plant actually got bigger than you thought it was going to be and it's hiding other things and you really need to move it to another location. Or here's another reason to get in there and do some editing. Maybe that plant is just a little bit too much of a thug and you're thinking, why did I plant that gooseneck loose strife in the first place? This is a good time to pare down remove or transplant, and if you're going to transplant, there are a couple of things you need to do for a successful transplant and the first thing I would say to do is cut back most of that top growth you do not want to be digging up a six foot tall stem, of Joe, Pye weed leave a couple of leaves on it, but you want to cut it back to a foot or maybe eighteen inches and it's Going to be much more manageable for you to dig up that Rupaul in addition to editing out and if somebody is redoing their garden as as you are, it is a good time to think first of all, do I want to rearrange things? Do I want to redesign? Do I really want to put any of this plant back if? I'm? Going to find no, I'm going to have to pair that you Pretoria I'm back again in another five years should is included or should I plant it someplace else entirely so I would encourage people to make those assessments and see if they want to do maybe a little more than just the absolute necessity in terms of editing and redoing
"Hello. I'm Deepak Chopra and this is now for tomorrow. A collection actions you can do now during this time of disruption and crisis. To. Make. Tomorrow, better. Than today I want to take a moment to help things -iety in a time of crisis. The current pandemic of the covid nineteen. Has brought in its wake a different pandemic of anxiety and uncertainty. Sigmund Freud said that things -iety is like an unwelcome guest that refuses to leave. You are forced to adapt to its presence. How do people usually adapt to feel Psychologically. The do most important with are denied and distraction. By knowing your anxiety or doing something that takes your mind off it. You might find temporary relief. But is this something more permanent and effective? Can you get this unwelcome guests to leave? Yes, you can. The secret is to make conscious choices that goes feel to shrink away because you no longer needed. Fear is a holdover from early evolution rooted in the fight or flight response. It lies in wait. Ready to spring into action as it did for Hamad ancestors. Over two million years ago. But for the last ten, thousand years. The higher or conscious breed has evolved. And with it came infinite resources of thought. Feeling. Creativity and choice making. We were set free from primal fear. All we have to do is choose the bottom of consciousness. which is the bottom of inner wisdom. This is a theme I would be returning to over and over. Because the true secret making tomorrow better than today. is to, choose to, wake up. To make the right choices you need to be conscious of what fear is doing to. Fear is a form of stress. And you can choose to release that stress. That's where today's homework gums. You need nothing this homework except yourself. And comfortable place to lie down. Once, you're lying down comfortably on the carpet or a Yoga Mat. I'll offer an effective and very simple yoga pose known as Shabas. Where you simply lie still. REAP. And consciously relax. Lying on your back. Place your feet eighteen inches apart with your arms at your side bombs up. Close. Your eyes. Settle into the position. And breed naturally. Put your attention on your bread feeling your jest rise and fall. On the out bet, let your lungs deflate with this guy. EASILY BREATHING Then exile with the CY. Feel yourself becoming deeply relaxed. And continue for five to ten minutes. Now think into this relaxed feeling. To, exit the bows. Don't just get up quickly or go into activity. Easily turn and stretch has if you will waking up in the morning. Open, and close your hands. Then Open your eyes and get up without moving quickly into activity. You are relaxed and in control. Remember this feeling. Later in the day, if fear anxiety comes back tap into this feeling of es and relaxation. Let's broaden the discussion a little bit. Modern Life makes room for many words but very few in what's. A stock fact in Morton life is that more money power status position don't bring inert fulfillment. In fulfillment is found along a different path. In the ancient wisdom traditions of India life presented to butts. The birth of pleasure and the but the wisdom. Every wisdom tradition east and West is based on waking up, which means in practice getting over your unconscious behavior and adopting conscious behavior instead. You're already doing that in our discussion of how fuel works. You are waking up to discover that fear doesn't have to be in charge. You might not think of this as. Budget. Tips. Every moment of inner wisdom is simply a moment of becoming more conscious and aware. I encourage all of you to try Shabas now. Taking five to ten minutes to read out stress and breeding relaxed. May Not seem like much. But such small steps will help you reassert control over your personal reality lessening the grip of fear and uncertainty.
Sally update: Storm downgraded to tropical depression
"Although Hurricane Sally has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it moves north eastwards across the US states of Alabama and Georgia communities can still expect to suffer from historic and catastrophic flooding citing authorities there the UN world, Meteorological Organization W. warned that a significant flood threat would likely spread inland on Friday along the central Gulf coast most river flooding will crest by the weekend, but rivers will remain elevated well into next week according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Sally has already produced up to eighteen inches or four, hundred, Fifty, seven millimeters of rain additional cloudburst our forecast bringing as much as twelve inches more rainfall. Or three hundred and four millimeters on the US Gulf coast where Sally made landfall on Wednesday today hundreds of thousands of people will act without electricity and at least one person has been killed according to reports images from Pensacola in Florida showed trees down boats thrown about and streets flooded with the water, some five and a half feet or one point six meters above sea level
Why Is My Serviceberry Losing Leaves in August?
"We also had an email from Japan this week and she says that she has three service berry trees that were planted about eighteen years ago, and she says, initially, they were planted in full sun. But now a maple tree shades them about fifty percent of the day for the past two years the leaves turn orange and fallen off in August. She says they treat those with acid fertilizer Bernard until late spring or early summer. Do you have any ideas on what they can do to keep the trees from an early leaf drop well now? Not nothing absolute. But at the same time service, Berry can certainly stand right out on the curb side in a in a curb lawn they can stand in a plain old front yard they can. As mine have done they can be planted east of a younger oak forty five years. Later they're in full shade by noon and and on top of aging also, but that factor Is Not bad for them because service Berry obviously can handle this on, but it also can thrive in I'm GonNa call it more limited light The shade may be the problem but it also maybe that the big old tree or whatever is giving them shade is has become so very competitive but they're going to have to upgrade the amount of water and. Well Yeah. The amount as well as the timing of the watering I mentioned a little earlier that I've started watering I think I did anyhow started watering in my front yard on Friday morning and the first thing that got it was half the oak tree roots and all three service berries Now they're aging out. So I'm having some problem with them. Per Se just age but they're they're still Competing with the OAK. Then I go back in my history of of hunting time in the early fall. And there is Actual saving on my part a humongous oak tree with great big buttress roots. forking out from the bottom of the trunk. There was a service Berry. Of oh. Three three and a half inches in diameter right in between those two. Well, two of the big buttress roots. It wasn't more than eighteen inches out from the the swell of trunk itself. It was standing probably twenty five or more feet high growing under and within the branches of a humongous Oak. Now, it was the time of year and I had been there before without paying attention but the time of year, when they they it I should say still had a full head of leans now full head in that case was greatly thinned for my trees which were younger and more son. So now with having said, all of that I have a hunch first of all, I don't think they would need to use an acid fertilizer enough. There's no Honda in. Because the the the acid gets diluted pretty significantly once it's installed the ground but fertilization is definitely helpful. I would say that they they need to upgrade to watering those service. Bury's at least every will ten to fourteen days. Good thorough soaking now they're not a creek. Well, one of their cultivars is shorter type that grows right along down to the water's edge us on a creek but by and large. They are denizens naturally of the wooded areas they're in competition I have seen them defoliated by nearly this time of year. And at CETERA. So I I don't think it's anything unusual other than for them to continue the care they've given them. If. It is possible to to lighten north soon out the tree or trees that is shading them. I think that would be of some small benefits I think all they need to do is keep them healthy perhaps a shot fertilizer either in November thereabouts or on into early March just to give them all they need to be competitive and I think they'll find that they can keep them from differentiating soon but maybe not at all totally.
Using Mint Around Tomatoes to Keep Critters Away.
"Tim Sanderson email this morning and tim has a tip and a couple of questions for you too. But the tip is he says that Like how he puts this to? Mr and Mrs Squirrel. Love. To take one bite out of his tomatoes and strawberries. Show this year he he planted cement. Around the strawberries tomatoes and for the most part they leave him alone. Have you ever heard of that Well now. I'm. GonNa have to divide my mini plant, take it up out of the window well, where I keep it control and put it near the tomatoes because boy do I need that advice I've never heard that before but if he says, it works, it works suits me. Mark. For suburban. I have worked critters than you can believe now in in in his case and mine I, am aware of the squirrels taking one bite and I don't know why they have to do that. But my nemesis is deer. I. I have a short story on that mark. It comes to the point of a friend of mine had some deer repellent in a sprayer. He said, well, if you're having trouble, let me follow you home. I'll spray your stuff for you which he did. That was the night. Since the deer came back in and eight again at being again they had come in two nights before and if the top side of the tomatoes when he sprayed them, they dutifully came in and took them down to about Puckett. Heights. And then the following night. The rascals came in and ate them down to about eighteen inches and even eight the tomatoes from around the bottom boy now. There's certain things I can't do legally. AGREEM- So the repellent didn't work. Well I'm GonNa say no either we didn't get it on at the right density thickness or you know had the dilution I should say I I don't. Although I know that I have some ornery dear moving through. So Tim. Just defy. Just to be ornery. Tim also had another tippy says a lot of times when his tomatoes just start to ripen, he'll pick them and then let them ripen off the vine and that way you know the squirrels can't and and other critters can't get to them well, and I I'm I'm big on that I've never it for that reason. But I always go out well with the first frost or certainly freeze warning in the fall I go on and pick all the tomatoes anything bigger than an acorn on up to two cutting size as it is green as it is wrapped them in newspapers stack, I'm in a open. The box and let them then. Ripened overdue time. I've had tomatoes out of my garden as latest. Thanksgiving. So yeah I'm favor that and thanks to him. That's a good recommendation I've never done it to. Stop the squirrels. I always just use language on them. Wow. Yeah. Yeah.
How Close to Plant Perennials Like Daisies and Black Eyed Susans?
"You know I've always wondered about plants like the astor's and the daisies and the this gorgeous black-eyed Susan's I've never really grown any of those. But so when you see these huge Arab, people will have these great big bunches of these flowers does that come from planning multiple different plants or can how big will one get? Well, one can. I. Let's go back to scratch. There are usually a whole bunch of them have been planted together. Now it's how close and if they want to get in a commercial situation in immediate effect, they'll go in at eighteen inches on center and get color and significant colored at first year. Now, that is however in my opinion. A slight over planting however of if that's what you want for the entrance of a great big corporate area or whatever. It's wonderful I. Usually, it is a number of plants. Now, they would buy your help and or otherwise you can dig and divide them. So matter of fact, with with most of the astor's, it's best. If you do dig in dividing every other year take the best parts, leave the center, the Party bought. His now dead and gone but it has sent out runners as as that term goes and you can take one plant from two thousand seventeen make five plants of it in eighteen, thirty, five planets out of it in nineteen and just keep going. But most of the things mark as you are enquiring where you see the the astor or the mom or what have you, and and and this year in particular those black-eyed Susan's of many different cultivars have been overwhelmingly
The Rise of the Ratty Muscle Cars
"Hello my friends and welcome back to another episode of talking Mo- part before we kick things off, I just wanted to announce that. In case you have not heard the build Mo- par project car has been chosen and we. The people have decided that the modern Hemi will be going into a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock tribute car, so now Hemi pages is on the hunt for nineteen sixty eight dodge DART hardtop to use as the platform for the built. So if you or anyone you know is selling a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART. Please reach out to my friends over a Hemi pages. You can go to Henry Pages. Dot. Dot Com or even build. Mo-. Par Dot com and reach out to those guys and let him know what you got. This is going to be a really exciting build, and if you didn't get a chance to vote on the first round, be sure to vote in on the next rounds and also tell all your friends about this project. We need to blow this thing up. We need to get thousands. Hundreds of thousands hopefully, millions of people involved in this and just see what we can come up with as a community I'm sure we can cook up something crazy, so that should be really fun. Maybe you've got a moped project. Project you're building or maybe you just went out and bought yourself your I. Mo par. Maybe it's not a show car. Maybe it's a little ratty. That's what we're talking about here today. I WanNa talk about the rise of the ratty muscle cars, because it seems to me that in the past few years, these ratty muscle cars and radio trucks have blown up. They are huge right now and I think I have the answer as to why this is occurring, but you know. I think it's multifaceted, but I really liked the movement I think it's an awesome movement. I think. It opened some doors for people that would otherwise not be able. Able to get into a muscle car. I think it lowers the barrier for entry for people like myself that don't have a lot of money can't buy show winning car that can't buy a fully restored Khuda or something crazy like that, but maybe you found a ratty mo par in your local classifieds for a couple of grand that needed a little bit of work, but you could tow it home and get running and driving lickety-split and get it on the road. That is Iraqi muscle car, and that's what I like to see. I love to see these cars on the road and not rotting into the ground. I think it's awesome. So now that we're warmed up, let's get this show on the road. This week project car the week is actually a truck that was posted on Wednesday July twenty, second at three PM, and going with the theme of ratty muscle cars and ratty trucks I thought this was a perfect fit, and it also happens to be really cool and has a ton of potential and would make an excellent project vehicle for anybody that wants to get in the Mo- par game and doesn't have a lot of coin in their pocket, so let's get into the at. Nineteen Seventy Dodge D. One hundred short box, five, thousand, six, hundred ninety five dollars Columbia Falls Montana lowered six inches the right way twenty inch wheels out back in eighteen inch up front wheels and tires, brand, new three eighteen auto, call or text titles. Status is clean. All right folks what we have here is what appears to be a running driving nineteen seventy truck. And it's got a cool Patina on it. It is not a show truck by any means if you think you're going to get. Show quality paint, and no dense dings or bumps bruises. You are wrong now. In case you're new to the show. I am a huge fan of mope par trucks and especially the nineteen seventy two to nineteen eighty, because I do have seventy six myself but I really love the early swept lines, and they have a ton of potential, but the good thing about trucks. For some reason they look amazing when their team it out. Maybe it's just me and now don't get me wrong I. Do love a beautiful. Beautiful Show Truck I. Love Him. I think they're gorgeous. There's something about an old. You know for lack of a better term farm truck that I really like especially ones that are slightly customized. You know little lowered with some nice wheels. They just have a personality and its personality that I really liked the nice thing about this one is that runs drives so like many of the other project cars? We've talked about the past. You can go out and enjoy this thing while you work on it this. This thing is good to go scout brand, new wheels and tires on it, and you know what it runs and drives. It's got a three eighteen in it, so you can keep three eighteen, or you can upgrade. Get a modern. Hemi, you know five thousand this. You could probably get this trump for five grand,
The Toxicity of Ego with Jocko Willink
"I'm your host. Alex jet and today we have A. With Jaakko Willing Jaakko was a leader that has become a regular on this podcasting and a friend of our team. He's a retired Navy seal, and the CO founder of Echelon Front and his book leadership strategy and tactics is an absolute masterclass in the practical fundamentals of leading well, but at the core of every practice habit and mindset. The JAAKKO teaches is an idea that if you don't conquer your ego, it will conquer you. You know I was very lucky. In the fact that in my career I worked for some guys had big massive egos, and you wouldn't think that would be lucky, but it's very lucky because you get to see what drives them, and you get to see the impact that it has on the rest of the team, and so your ego is something that's constantly there and look. As you know from the book. That I caught me of leadership that I wrote that I'm not saying you shouldn't have an ego, and we all have ego and ego can be a very positive thing. It's what drives you to work hard toward drives you to want to win, but when you start letting your ego, drive your decision making process, and you start making decisions that satisfy your ego instead of helping out the team, and helping out your subordinates, and helping out the people above you in the chain of command. Allow those things to happen. You're going start to go backwards and you'RE GONNA end up in a bad position, so you absolutely have to keep going check. You have to be looking out for other people looking out for the team looking out for the mission and put yourself at the bottom of that list. And I think one of the topics that you really highlighted for me. I realized like okay man. You really have to remove your ego to achieve this. Is that topic of detachment so I'd love for you to dive into where you became aware, because it's almost like it's like the six cents thing that lots of people aren't even aware of so tells a little bit about where you became aware of this as a strategy, and then what it actually is Jaakko so I hate to make it sound like one moment in time I was enlightened and I figured it all out, because that's absolutely not true, and I'm still in the process of moving forward and trying to figure it out. That being said as I talk about in the book. Leadership Strategy and tactics. I was in my first seal platoon I'm a new guy and not only my new guy. I'm the most junior ranking guy and on top of that I'm the youngest guy so I have. Absolutely no, no reason to be speaking. You know being a new guy in a seal platoon. You keep your mouth shut. You do what you're told you trying to learn right? You're trying to learn. You're trying to figure things out. We had been going through our pre deployment workup so doing land warfare and doing urban combat, and doing close quarters combat in jungle training, and we'd been through all those blocks of training, so I was progressing down the path of being a good seal, and we went on one trip. We were going to clear oil rigs, big oil rigs in southern California off the coast. You know in case were overseas and an oil rig gets taken over by bad guys. We can go take it back. So we're training for that mission and. We start off small just by how we're going to get onto the oil rig, we practice getting onto the oil rig. Then we start actually moving through the oil, rig and oil rigs are these crazy complex structures, and as you come up from the ocean. No once you get on board, the oil rig when you. It's actually called oil platform when you come up. The platform you up the stairs. You eventually get to this big giant deck big giant floor of the oil platform. It's called the cellar. Check for whatever reason. That's what it's called, and it's a big massive big massive area, and we only have sixteen guys in the seal platoon. So as the first couple guys get to that seller deck, they make this tactical call of flood, which means hey, it's a big area. We need everyone everyone a platoon up the stairs, and as we all know platoon, come up the stairs. We all fall into our standard positions, which is all of us standing like a skirmish line? Looking at this seller back so you've got sixteen guys. All sixteen of US seals in the tune where all standing there staring at the potential targets and the seller decks covered with equipment and gear and mechanical. Very cluttered thing and there's all the possibility of all kinds of places for bad guys to hide. And so I'm standing there. Looking down the sites of my weapon scanning for targets. And you know ten seconds go by, and then fifteen seconds go by, and and now I'm waiting now. Twenty seconds have gone by them waiting for. One of the leaders in my seal platoon to make some kind of a decision to make a call on what to do next. I'm standing there doing my job. Scanning targets and another ten seconds and twenty seconds go by which seems like ages. And, so finally I say to myself you know what I guess you. What's happening, so we're all standing in that skirmish line. We've all tracking whether weapons. I take a step back. Step back. Maybe a foot, maybe eighteen inches at the most I looked to my left. I looked to my right. And as I look I, see that every other guy in my seal platoon. is still staring down their weapons, staring down the sights of the weapons scanning for targets, and as you can imagine when you're staring down the site of your weapon, your field of view is not very wide. You can't really see a lot of what is happening well as I step back and looked around. I saw that every single guy was staring down the weapon, including my platoon commander, including my platoon chief, including my platoon assistant commander, including my platoon leading petty officer all the people that should have been making a decision. We're staring down the sights of their weapons so. It's pretty obvious wants I. Step back what we needed to do. So I. summoned up all the courage I could open my mouth as a new guy and I said old left clear right, which was a standard call. Nothing spectacular, no incredible, tactical genius here it's a standard of hold left clear right, and after I said that I kind of braced for. Someone to yell at me and say shot, up new guy. But instead they all actually did what they're supposed to do. Which is repeat the call down the line? Everyone said hold left clear I old buff clear out. Hold left clear right, and then they actually did it. The guys that were on the left side held in the guys that were on the right side started to move through. And then we continued on with the rest of the clearance, and we got to the end of the clearance, and we got into a little huddle to do a debrief. And we got into the huddle the debrief once again. I kinda braced for impact because I figured I was about to get smacked around for being a new guy with a loud mouth. And instead one of the senior guys in the platoon. says. Hey Jaakko good call on the seller deck.
Metal Roofs and Storm Debris
"You guys working on this morning. Well actually wanted to start with a question for Jeff at found some interesting things on home inspections. Dealing with metal roofs, and I just had a couple of questions. You, you ready Jeff. Bomb. With you know we could talk about ventilation in on roofs, but I've been in a couple of addicts recently with a metal roof on it, and there's a bunch of leaves and debris right underneath the ridge men. And, I think what's happening is because there's no resistance on that metal roof. Whenever we're having these, you know these great storms. It's literally pushing the leaves up the roof, and then down into the attic and I'm wondering is there. Yeah, that's very possible. Wow. You, it's an. New No sort of screen or anything like that. That's ever been considered. If not the not ideas, mind and someone's got to pay me for it so. I can I can definitely see how that can happen especially on the windward side of the roof that. Would blow debris up in that video cap. Mall amount. I'm telling you. It was like two or three inches of lanes about eighteen inches wide straight down that ridge, and it was in two different addicts. You know what that makes me think PAM is. That is that the leaves are are one concern, but critters that come on leaves are also another concern. Well Yeah Yeah, so I didn't know if I was trying to Google it and looking at I'm just gonNA. Ask Jeff if there's some type of whenever you're venting that metal. If you because I know on a regular asphalt when they put that Ridge van up there, it's basically encapsulated. It's got screen built in screening, but I'm guessing on the metal roof. It doesn't. Old saying. I've never even thought about that. I mean that's something to think about. It really is because that that definitely can happen
How Do I Get Rid of Garlic Mustard in My Yard?
"Successful growers for generations. Fred I know that In addition to the deer you've been cousin at them garlic mustard this week. Garlic mustard Is is could take over the nation. At least I think so. It will grow under around through about anything. It's it's a pretty little plant when it's just green leaves. Kind of a little cluster. Do you don't pay a bit of attention to year one It's a biennial so it grows just leafy you. Don't think much of it. You might kick it one but there leave the rest of them alone if you have to reach for him Well then they die down in the fall like perennial will however they come back in the spring then and right now they're about Oh between eighteen and n how they're over eighteen inches tall right now. Usually on fairly upright straight stems pretty little flower clusters on the tips of each stem in as best. I can tell from what I've been told. Each of those stems bears a whole bunch of seed and when those seed are ripe or say matured later on they flip out and spread themselves and I think given no care on a five year period. You could. You'd have to mow them nuts right. No no no Yes it's well. There are many weeds that are best. But this is an insidious little devil and when I tell you that under over and around I I'm thinking of hiring my grandson. Get on his hands and knees and go in under some plants to get them out. They'll pull fairly easily and if not how he or someone will have a trowel in their hand. But I do try to stop that rascal before.
How Deep Does the Soil Have to Be in a Raised Bed Garden to Grow Tomatoes and Peppers?
"Says she's thinking about putting in a small raised bed small garden on her patio so she can grow a few tomatoes and peppers and she wants to know how deep the soil would have to be. Well that's a good question mark. I'm GonNa stay deep as possible is the best answer now. Let's try to qualify that My uncle and his reclining time go to Mehta's in a water. Water filled apparatus That was only. I think maybe eight inches deep at the very most now. Most people probably aren't going to go into that particular kind of thing so I would say eight inches would be the absolute minimum depth then going to best case scenario eighteen inches is better the whole point being that if if you want to stay with tomatoes and it Cetera they can be and can be productive in a relatively shallower area. She wants to plant any loan stuff carrots then she's got to get down toward that eighteen now to be let's just say as as general in terms of gardening as you can think of. I Have Lois dig down twelve inches or have ever higher young guy with a shovel but anyhow down twelve inches through through that dirt decide on a tarp or for that matter throw it out but I would be inclined to keep a bit big down to that Ten or twelve inch. Ruth range put in minimum two inches of gravel. Now this would be just plain Pulverized gravel if he could even be limestone best but it wasn't but it's okay Three inches is better than put some some landscape cloth over the top of that gravel. So that leaves her with a nine inch depth of actual soil. Now that can be when she's talking about digging or I'm thinking of her digging down. She wants to raise it if she wants to. Stay on top of the ground. Then I would say you're still dealing with what is going to be ten to twelve inches deep Bordered by Goodwood. Or what have you So that you can stay on top of the ground I know well Ash. Ritchie's has been on with me from time to time. Grew blueberries here in Central Ohio on limestone rock because he went into raised beds having been there and pick some of these various and enjoying them. Thoroughly I know that he was not more than twelve inches. Deep with those beds so either down and start. Grab on the bottom or it's still best to put down. Maybe an inch gravel on top of the cle- junk or whatever it is still used hardware cloth then build up the good soil on top of that within boundaries and borders or not Action did not have borders on his his very bad but So it tapered up on over but I think even in the very center of it His soil wouldn't have been much more twelve or fourteen inches deep. So I think that's the best leader recommend four Louis The better drainage you can create on in ground or above ground is best comes in with there being an interface between her new sales repaired. So she's GonNa make whatever And and hard rock junk
What are the best types of hornbeam for making a hedge?
"Says that he'd like to plan an English style hedge with Horn beam and he says a lot of the hedge information he gets comes out of the UK of course where it's a very popular over there at the hedgerows and he was Wondering about car PINEY specialists okay. Or he said would God knows way more than I do you car pinal. Carolinian better for the US. He says I'm in zone. Six B the citing question partial shade slightly damp but DOB wet clay soil with a Ph about five. And how thin would I be able to keep the hedge? Because I'd like to keep it about three feet wide and about ten feet tall. Okay I think either of the Horn beams would do the job. I've never tested myself or watched anybody else. Make a choice on that. However there's nothing wrong with his idea. His six be puts almost any plant. Well any of the normal plans for this area in safety areas safety wise in terms of growth. And so on. I'm not sure which one will be easiest to keep narrow however it can be done. I've even seen Chinese ELM Hint believe me. That's a big sucker when you let it get away. But I've even seen Chinese elm held at three or maybe well just you say even a Max of four feet wide if the person that has them prunes maybe twice a year and somewhat severely the only problem. I finally Chinese which I don't recommend is that it it heads up at the bottom so you don't have the the thickness you want at the bottom now. Then any of those either. Either of those plants can work He asks what else possible There is private private of the one called. I bullied him. I B. O. L. I. UM and there may even be nor more new cultivars of that but that seems to be the sturdiest one four Ohio. From my knowledge point I had a neighbor. Have an well. No it's gone now. I had a neighbor that lived on around the corner from me planted Bullying privet eighteen inches on center. And I you know. Soviet obey grew. He trimmed they grew trimmed. They grew he trimmed to the extent that in about this. I'm going to say sixth year. He had to put four by eight sheets of plywood against the hedge somewhat straight up not quite and then put a ladder step ladder against the board so he could get up high enough to trim it off at ten feet. I actually watched that happen. I know the new people to go over the. They wished he'd never started that. Because by then the Privet were pretty sturdy as would have been the horn beams Prove it won't generally speaking be able to be held at two or so feet but again for for that kind of height I would think three Max can be determined on any of those. Three plants. it will require considerable pruning and and by that meaning at least twice a year once. I would say pre foliage because neither none of those three is going to be a flowering plant of any consequence to us or him and then there will be the growth period where they'll just spill out like the hair I used to can't it'll have to be cut off again to hold them for the summer. So a dormant pruning such as now or reasonably close to now and then right after full growth. And I don't even know how to measure that but Plants that are being held above ground by being pruned are not being restricted below ground. So the the roots are going to grow and Participate in heavy top girl so It just needs to keep after it. Don't let it get out of hand because if you cut back too far after you've let and it'll be some berry baron tissue in there at least initially so yeah. I think the the the two plus they are bullying privet will do that and believe me. This guy was well bigger than I am and he I can remember it matter if two properties away I could hear him discussing increase. Whatever he did it for purposes they're condos built behind him and that well I think at ten or twelve foot. I'm not sure what it was. But it blocked out the windows and even it was dense enough in twigs in the wintertime. To let's just say dissipate view through so I know it can work. I know it. Do you have any any preference between the Horn? Beam and the privet considering he wants three feet wide and ten feet tall because of my experience with Horn. Beam being mostly as tree. Form Abed isn't of planted as a tree. I guess I would have to go back to the privet. I know how tough it is I know that he could stand the forbade sheets. Matter of fact he eventually he did a four by eight with a four foot extension on it and then his electric cheers. And I don't know how many times you cut Takhar work. I could hear him discuss that but I know the did work I know. Based on some decent recall that it was about three feet thick. Now absolutely a rule that you'll have to follow regardless of what your us keep it broader at the base than it is at the top as soon as you let that invert itself into a V shape. It'll lose son at the bottom. Where there's no sun there's no creation of activity in the plant and you'll have no screening and the lower three or four feet and he says he's already in partial shade well then by all means jr a dozen steep taper but it absolutely in other words if he needs to keep it three foot wide at the bottom. Max then he would want to be headed toward by the timing. Is that height two feet Max. Okay so that it stays with sun coming in clear to the bottom. That's the way to keep the hedge where you want to be

make one I came always yet tumble over but shares and shoot the come up and the plum trees about anywhere from ten to twelve inches in diameter but it it blows beautifully every year but it never produces an income how many years has it been coming back from the roots yes No Way Out there's one quote it came back in like ten years now but edit put Shoop salt and I'm started telling the lan ports and don't have to shoot down at them here's what I do I don't think that you're ever going to have a true you know fruit producing three from the root system because most palms are planted from grafted materials and most palms are planted from seeds so that coming from off of a root system you're not getting true plant home every day one the first couple years it got problem like twelve you got it produced long and produce one this year the first time on clean water okay and they're huge well here's what I would do stop using stakes who don't feed was steaks anymore I anybody listens to garden line long enough knows we don't feed trees of any kind are specially free trees with stakes it just doesn't work that well what we do is kind of taken five give me a little homework assignments they then you'll go to let's go to the internet I'm just writing Randy lemon and deep root feeding a trees we're gonna take that concept and it's not gonna be so intense on that concept we're not gonna poke you know a thousand holes eighteen inches deep but we're gonna poke you know hundred holes six eight inches deep and then we're gonna scatter a legitimate fruit tree food out there and we're gonna be consistent about that up to four times a year consistent free tree for the best thing you can probably use right now is product line call microlights microlight sixty four orange label is the best free tree food out there if we follow that and we get the right chill hours we've had several years were the wrong chill chill hours and then if you get flowers and then you don't get fruit sometimes it's a chill our issue but I think if you start feeding it correctly okay it'll make a big change on this okay all right on twelve acres I've never seen a plan to get this big yellow light the the mother got it as much as like almost eighteen inches around and she produced a lot but I can say I think I killed it without the bills yes that was probably true that you can take believe it or not up to a nine years for a fruit tree that comes back from a root system to get all it's I guess original producing abilities back intact that that's the case where you have to look at that with pecans to not trees it can take eight nineteen years until they're actually producing okay this is the first year they blown and the bones in your blown away right before a focal April showers will come around right that's always a problem with the fruit trees in the balloons and you know just keep a watchful eye on it this next go around but that doesn't stop you from doing the feeding process right now and you got to get the right food so we can get two more feedings in here this summer and then in the look early fall and then we'll kick it back again in March first to March maybe into February when we do the pruning we'll do a light training clean it up we'll do the feeding and then we do you normally do it every other month so you got like if I do it March may

"Of ten seats, four plus three plus three and two rows. Now I'm a big guy. So the way I fit into a seat, I'm gonna estimate coach seat wis to be eighteen inches. This is my gut estimate. Okay. Well, based on how wide my backside is and to tell you the truth, I don't think that's an unreasonable estimate for the aisles to when I think about it. When I walked down the aisle, if I don't turn sideways, nobody can squeeze by me, which is generally true of me sitting in my seat, the diameter then of this plane is twelve times eighteen inches or eighteen feet right? Twelve eighteen, but probably it's better. It's smarter to keep my units the same. And frankly, folks just between you and I I don't like feet. I can do metrics, but I'm not as good as I could. And frankly, I also know that in the US if this question would be an ask, the US, the measurements I could easily get for these things would be in non metric use and keep my units the same. So I don't inadvertently get a unit mistake into my answer, which could be an order of magnitude. The difference between in Incheon afoot is about an order of magnitude. So I'm going to say we've got eighteen feet twelve inches in a foot, two hundred sixteen inch. Inches. Half of that is a hundred and eight inches and I'm going to run that down to one hundred. I estimate a seven forty seven few slosh to be roughly two hundred and fifty feet..

The point of this pointing us has long bothered Santa's who've come up with various theories about it. Professor, Tim birkhead egg expert. Sorry from the university of Sheffield, England has published his theory this week. And when he came into the studio, complete with a fake guillemot egg, he talked Monte Chesterton through some of the older ideas. This shape is fascinated people for centuries. Literally, there's been a number of autism. The first idea that came out was that this would allow the to spin like a top when it was not. Title blown by the wind. But that was the role of the silly idea because that was simply based on empty blown act had no contents relay when it's full of yolk, just won't move like that unless you really try to spin it. The other idea was that the egg would role in an arc if you placed his own smooth, but sloping surface and the the idea wasn't this would save it for rolling off the edge of the cliff rather than rolling in a straight line. Never idea is a clever idea and this intuitively obvious of and it's basically down to physics. What happens when you have an egg or an object this shape. But biologically is actually not that great and I do because the art that the describes is often quite why'd eighteen inches and guillemots routinely breed on ledges like two inches wide. So I think the rolling in the archive area simply isn't viable. It's just not common sense. Even though people think is kind of intuitively obvious idea, what's your right? Okay. So, I mean, I've been working on this for about six. Years, and I know getting a lot of thought, and we've come up with some other ideas. But last year I was on a cliff. We measuring guillemot and raise a Bill x, rays bills a close relative of the of the guillemot. But it lays a very conventional chicken shape. Talk back and I was looking at this. I get my hand and I suddenly thought you want. I bet this'll sit on the steep slope and I'll beside a bit of rock and I place the there and to my observations, and it just stayed there on this really steep. It was over thirty degrees, swapped it for a resume, like under his no way, I could get that raise a bit like to stay put my colleague who'd be collecting the eggs. I measure came back and I just watched this. I demonstrated again anyway, say I think it is. And then what we did was to devise us whole series of very carefully controlled experiments on different slopes. Basically, what we found was that the more pointed the egg, the more stable that egg is on a slope. So it'll sit there all slope like this simply because this long flat. Edge. There's more of it in contact with the substrate, where if you have a curved act like a reasonable Ag, there is less and it does it slips off all the time. All experiments were done with people placing exit, trying to secure them on different slopes. And of course, people are probably much more depth than girls because we've gone very sophisticated happens exactly the parole guillemot, mom and dad of just got a beak and they use their wings and they use their feet a little bit. And I think what this does is this shape allows them to safely manipulate because it's just much more stable. Why aren't they laying eggs on slice anyway? What can they just pick a better place to put a very good question. So get him once again, what strategies to breed as higher density as possible on open ledges by breeding it high density, they protect themselves in a kind of pulmonary form of defense against goals and ravens, which would steal eggs or chicks..

"Dig into the would not only be let the product do the work without damaging it. You'll actually end up with a better quality and now without giving out, you know, company secrets and formulas and things like that, what sorts of materials do you use for the actual abrasives? So the general categories are aluminum oxide silicon carbide, zirconium and ceramic. Those are the four types of grains on very general Stampa sense that are using the abrasive industry aluminum oxide. By far the most common, it's the most economical offering. The best possible results in terms of finish and lifetime. But even within aluminum, oxygen, lots of different types. And that's really where the differentiation from one abrasive company to another comes into play is what type of aluminum oxide using an ultimately house at coated on the product type resins go into to keep that grain securely attached to the backing, what type of backing us. So the grain is very, very important. The type of grain uses principle to the application that you're trying to know sand, but all the other components coated abrasives the resin backing the technology, how wreck these of races are coated onto the product is really what differentiates us from everyone else. So you guys you guys science the heck out of it? I can tell, yes, yes. So which the company mentioned, Sweden. They've been in business nineteen twenty eight and being a manufacturing, Sweden, Sweden isn't country known for their wood products. So they focused on developing the best polish for would for the last eight years and Susan. Ninety years. And really we believe have the best technology will send. So take me through a bad about your product line. And then we'll talk about a couple specifically ones that you want to highlight. What sort of things do you sell your? So a big portion of our business or why belts. So what we consider why belt is about that wider than eighteen inches and longer than sixteen inches we make that are up to seventy eight inches wide and a hundred thirty six inches long to these huge belts on very big machines. But we also make small belts for small, you know, small wild Santa's well, so that's a big portion of our business. We sell a lot of narrow belts on a narrow belts could be any size length. Again, custom made for whatever machine needs to be used on coarser substandard sizes that most people use, but we can make up to any size or down any size. By matter we Smalls belt we make, I think is eight benched by eighteen inches. So really tiny bells for tiny diner file Sanders. That sort of thing than we sell a lot of PSA in Luke disks. That's a big big part of line for us. We sell a lot of sheets for handing. We sell abrasive sponges it, lots of different configurations grits, sizes shapes, amend getting into other specialty items for the furniture industry, which unfortunately is not as much as I used to be, but they have some very special applications that use wing discs for school sanding and really lots of other specials. We have the capability to produce almost anything that anybody could ever imagined reverses. Now, just a quick question, are you a road worker? I am not a worker. That's okay. We'll let you in. Toolmakers to makers count. Yes. Thank you. I do appreciate it. You're my friends who are Woodworkers. I mean, I have a a friend who's in unbelievable, Turner makes most beautiful art, really, really what he makes his art and it's a, it's amazing that that's yeah, would turning his one of my passions. I'm not a master of course, but I certainly love doing it and I've met some just amazing people doing it. So tell me about a couple of your new products are one or two, whatever you'd like and tell me what sort of innovations you guys are into now. So we're always trying to develop new products to offer. Again, mentioned earlier quality, finished alongs, possible life at a competitive price..

Now, I know people are always calling up and one of the questions they ask when it comes to trees as I need something that's fast growing a papa's pretty fast. Yes, they are. It's not uncommon will I'm thinking the bigger trees now they'll put out growth twelve to as much as eighteen inches long. Pretty consistently with great big, fat leaves and so on. And then the it is what's called stolen for us. It's got some other names. The plant will spread itself by underground structure. Kind of grasses grow between of course, very much larger. It'll send out underground, shoots and then pop up a new stem. Those new stems. One of them right now started off this spring, and it was in a position that I thought maybe I'd like it there. I semi guarded it from my own feet and so on. And it was just when I noticed at six or eight inches tall, it's now. Very tall, but it's taller than I am at this point. So that's, let's call it five and a half foot in a new shoot coming up all in one year. It has thrown aside stem already, which is just the development of normal trees. But the only thing you have to guard against or or be aware of a better way to put it is if you plant Papa, you'll have to then five and then seven, and it's just a matter reaching down at the clippers and cutting them off so that you don't end up with the whole forest Fulham. You don't need that many fruit, even they are good taste. So it's just a wonderful long tree hardly used enough. When you want see one out in the sunshine growing wealth that perfect cone ULA definite from one hundred yards away hereafter is just it's just a perfect cone. You put it in the woods, let the deer bite and the Turkey scratch it, and the deer rub it with their Antlers and so on. It's a completely different creature, but it still has that delectable fruit. And if you get one and it gets the fruit on it and it's growing well, you might see guy in your backyard named Fred. How're try to steal your free well or else I'll come in with my little soft camel hair bristle brush in the spring, get into their flowers and take it to my plant. There you go, whatever..
