Fresh update on "elon" discussed on Part Time Genius
"Think the number was 228 investor's past colonel. Luckily as O Brien, a lot of people don't know him, but he's actually an incredibly rich individual. He sold the company to PayPal. A few years ago and made about 300 to $400 million from the sale. So he bought Venmo as well. He did. Yeah, exactly. And And so? So he put 54 million of dollars of his own money into this basically for the first four years to prove To prove it as ideas worked while everyone else was rejecting him, And then finally they got the devices to start working, and they have the prototypes. And and investors put another, you know, 55 million or so into the company. So it has been this huge high risk. I mean, basically, people thought It was not really possible to make a device that was that could actually get any kind of decent data through the skull just from a helmet. The thinking has been that you really need to put implants in near the neurons to get any sort of major breakthroughs. Right, And we're seeing people like Elon Musk and his companies working on on things like that. I think they just had a demonstration. You know, a few months ago with some pigs and whatnot with with these brain implant, so definitely much more non invasive way to go with these helmets. I always love new Tech always love these types of things. These ideas these goals, But just as interesting as the tech is itself, the people behind them are also pretty interesting. So tell me a little bit more about Brian Johnson because you spent a lot of time with him. And I mean, he has an interesting health regimen. I mean, you put in the article snorting stem cells, he, you know, constantly getting tested. I think he's about 43. But they you know his body through all of the stuff. He's registering more as a 30 year, old man. So tell me a little bit about him. Yeah, but I It's quite the character you know, people might be familiar with, like the quantify itself. Movement this idea yet you're always measuring your like a step. That is a rudimentary example of it. But Brian measures everything about his body. And you know, tons of doctors working on all this stuff. And he now has this health regimen. Where he you know, he eats once a day very early in the morning. He's like 2300 calories in one meal and then fast the rest of the day. He goes to bed at eight o'clock every night and wakes up before and and does his workout routine. And then his breakfast and you know, he and I are. We're about the same age were both 43. I reported on the story for about three years, and so over that time I stayed You know, I went from 40 to 43. His biological age dropped according to the doctors from 43 to about 30 that he has the exercise potential of of like a 25 year old. So it was very humbling story to report as we went, Uh, I mean he's doing I v infusions of anti aging fluids. You know, a bunch of vitamins. There's a lot that goes into it more than just, you know, eating healthy and exercising. But, yeah, just Just an interesting look into the guy himself. And as I said, the goal overall with this thing, it seems pretty good and and if we can learn more about the brain, I mean, that's going to help out in so many different ways. Yeah. I mean, there could be a huge breakthrough like you know, Like any powerful technology. They're certainly going to be big questions that come with it all. There's a couple of the companies that are Getting early access to the helmets. You know, they want to use them to find out like maybe what makes a hit song or which parts of like a movie trigger things in people's brain to make it more entertaining. So you know, you can see where we get into black mirror territory. Pretty quick stuff like that, But but the families, you know, Brian, I believe him because I spent a lot of time with them. I mean, his overall goal really is Toward mental health. I talk about it in the story. You know, he had depression very bad and had sort of suicidal thoughts at one point in his life, and that's kind of what triggered a lot of us. And, um, you know, I think he generally wants to help people. And so but, yeah, he's that. It's quite It's quite interesting figure to be meeting this. Well, They're going to start shipping out pretty soon, so I'm sure we'll start hearing more about these colonel devices. You know, in the next few months and and in short order, so we'll keep an eye out for all of that. Ashlee Vance, Writer at Bloomberg Business Week Magazine. Thank you very much for joining us.

Everything We Learned About the Bitcoin Mining Council
"In december elon musk. Michael sailor started tweeting back and forth a bit. Bitcoin were already in the modality of companies. Adding bitcoin to their treasury and sailor had already emerged as one of the top evangelists. Of course this got tongues wagging at the end of january. Ilan changed his profile to read bitcoin and tweeted. In retrospect it was inevitable in february tesla announced that it had purchased one point five billion dollars in bitcoin and that it would start to accept bitcoin for payment for vehicles. Bitcoin cheer and our bags. Rejoice as we're rocketed up the next leg of the bull run but it wouldn't be a good story without a dramatic arc. Now would it almost immediately. We saw the downsides of ilan's involvement to go right along with the upside of price. Those downsides included one the alignment with an unpredictable twitter user. More likely to show those than to do. Anything that bolstered bitcoin and to the scorn and condemnation of the legions out there who dislike elon that second category includes many who profess to care about the environment who basically view tesla or ilan himself as a great green washer. In retrospect it's pretty clear that tesla's involvement did more to ratchet up a focus on bitcoin's footprint than to alleviate concerns about it by the end of april a new concern tesla had sold ten percent of its. Bitcoin alon profess that it was only to demonstrate the liquidity of the asset to stakeholders. But it was still jarring by a month later things had gone really sour alon announced that tesla was pausing sales of bitcoin due to environmental concerns w. f. the collective cry rang out. Do this guy seriously. Just learn about the environmental footprint of bitcoin. of course not what's far more likely and commonly accepted. Is that behind the scenes. There were serious pressures pushing tesla any lana on the bitcoin. Question for example. Es focused etf that list tesla who because of bitcoin
Motor Trend Reviews Plaid Model S, and and New Battery Details
"Everybody here and stay. We're talking about the first journalist reviews of the new plan model. we've also got an update on the battery capacity. We'll talk about some details behind that we've got an update from dan is on tesla's stock an update on gigabyte lynn news on tussles referral program. And an interesting tweet from elon. Musk that has caused a lot of speculation. Also quick the stock tussle today finishing up about two percent to six hundred and sixteen dollars sixty cents. That compared to the nasdaq also. Strong day up nine tenths of a percent are. Let's start off here with the initial reviews of the model s. so we have one for motor trend. We have one from automotive journalist. Jason kameda whenever tesla has a new vehicle. I always look forward to these. It's kind of a nice time to celebrate what tesla has done with that new vehicle and unlike what we see business news wise from cnbc or reuters. This is automotive new. So the writing is different style. there's a lot of primitives. Nice compliments towards tesla and sometimes some really beautiful writing which again you tend not to see too much in business. News look at trends review here first. So of course. The question that everyone has undermined around this vehicle is can't actually do zero to sixty in under two seconds motor trends answer. Yes but with some stipulation so they actually spent kind of the i. I don't know half or third of this article talking about the requirements that they had for their sixty test run which i think unfortunately it detracts a little bit from their main takeaways. Which of course. We'll talk about as well but they been a fair amount of time talking about how Wanted them to run on a specific track with specific tests conditions. One of those conditions being that the drag strip needed to be prepared with hd which motor trend says as a quote thick black resin that allows cars to accelerate quicker than is possible on normal roads and quote framed that way it does look a little bit manipulative or suspect. But it's not like the hd is common this is a substance that most drag strips are using and using in competition so this is not so unusual thing in quarter mile races. It's just not how motor trend. Test their cars so they wanted to make sure that that part was clear so understanding that they write quote. The plaid model s zips down the quarter mile in a staggeringly quick. Nine point. two five seconds up one hundred fifty two point six miles per hour.
Blockchain: What Is It Good For?
"Thanks the perfect storm of slain. You saw big marketing budgets and elon musk's tweets blockchain has been hyped beyond belief. And it's also been made more complicated than it leads to be. More i could up angolan go. My name's ingram go. I'm senior vice. President and chief technology officer for a special intelligence at hewlett packard enterprise. So first question. What exactly is a blockchain. Let's start with a public blockchain first. Let's use an example of a analogy of a of a ring binder. You've got this notebook with many blank pages bound by a ring ring binder on page one the record number of transactions. You know. maybe. Jim pays john two bitcoins and sarah pays jim ten bitcoins and so on and so on then on the next page You have the same again. Set of transactions being written down on it and the knicks page and then expansion so on so if if you imagine each page is a block and all the pages of bound by the ring bind up being the chain. You actually have a a blockchain there right. So that's what blockchain is except for the fact that in a public blockchain this ledger or this record. Write this chain of pages. Chain of blocks is digital and is distributed to everyone publicly equally publicly with no central custodian. Why you want to use a blockchain. There are two major reasons. Why you want us a blockchain right first and foremost this when you wanna keep record of an entire sequence of transactions especially if you want to go all the way to genesis the beginning and secondly you won that record to be transparent that is you want the decentralize it by distributing copies of the same sequence records to everyone equally with no central custodian

He just has such an effect on the stock price. And it's like so obvious. Every time he sends a tweet you can chart out. You know how much he sends the tesla's stock upper down. Has anything happened to. Egon tweets by the sec added. The short answer is no There's a lot of back and forth between the sec. And his lawyers lawyers are saying he doesn't really need to run those tweets by them because their opinion Sec tried to hold him in contempt of court for an earlier tweet but the judge was like you guys deal with this and they did by saying okay. Employers have to go re tweets but only when they have to do with production refinances. But that doesn't seem to have stopped him here. I mean sec's only recourse. Would be to try to go back to a federal judge. See if the hold him in contempt or relitigate this whole thing you know get rid of the settlement and try to try to get him in trouble for that original for twenty tweet.
How to Win at Work and Succeed at Life with Michael Hyatt
"Today. We have a lot of celebrity entrepreneurs advocating what we call them the book the hustle fallacy. Where you just work hard. Keep your nose to the grindstone crank. You'll put in the hours crank out the work. can eventually. you'll be able to slow down. Give attention to your health. You most important relationships and and be able to have some semblance of balance. There are some people that choose sort of the opposite approach and we call this the ambition break where they just pump the brakes on their career. And they say look. It's it's not worth blowing out my personal health or my most important relationships so i will settle for less than what i know. I'm capable of in my career. We think and by the way. I wrote this book with my oldest daughter. Megan who is the ceo. Michael hanalani albany now but the we believe that's a false choice that that it's not either or as you said but it's both and and that's the double win double win fire nation and. I hope you're listening to michael right. Now you're asking yourself these important questions. Are you right now. Claiming a false summits about that. Are you putting yourself in a situation where you're facing an impossible choice. These are hard questions but imported ones. You wanna answer now not five years ten years from now and your book's subtitle michael is five principles to free yourself from the cult of overwork. Why did you choose to subtitle. We really came to the conclusion as we listen to. A lot of people like elon. Musk for example which has done amazing things in the world. But when he advocates that people should be working eighty to a hundred hours a week and he's done that at numerous entrepreneurial conferences because he said if you can put in that kind of time you can do three to four months what your competitors will take a year to do and that will give you a competitive advantage. But what he doesn't share is he's now on his third marriage his five sons by omission. Don't speak to him. You know it's come it at considerable cost and i know you know. His driving. Passion in life is to go to mars but he might be there alone when it's all said and done and and this is kind of a cult and it has all the same kind of addictive properties that you know. Alcoholism would have or any other substance abuse or even unhealthy religion. And that's why we named it

"Everybody rob our here and today we of course going to be discussing the information's report on net new orders for tesla in china during the month of may this report was published a couple of hours before market closed. The stock dropped dramatically. And of course it was quickly picked up by other means. That's as well so we'll discuss my thoughts on that. Then we also have a couple stories on recall. Some news from cat l. expanding in china an update on gigabyte lynn an update on the plaid model s. As we await the delivery event. One week from that are so tussle stock today starting out the day just fine trading a little bit below yesterday's close but not too far in early morning trading and then in the afternoon we saw a report from the information this was a couple of hours before market closed on as this report came out tussle dropped sharply about three percent in less than ten minutes and then continued to decline into close finishing the day down five point three percent to five hundred and seventy dollars four cents that compared to the nasdaq down one percent on the debt so that report is where we will start. The headline for this piece is quote. Tesla's china orders have in may internal data shows as crisis deepens and quote. They go on to write that quote. The company's monthly net orders in china dropped to about ninety eight hundred in may for more than eighteen thousand april according to a person with knowledge of the data the sharp drop reflected a drastic shift in chinese consumers appetite for tesla whose founder elon. Musk has celebrity status. Their orders in january after the release of the motto sub and then slowly eased off before cratering last month. In march tesla had twenty one thousand that orders even on a week over week basis order so far haven't shown any signs of recovery. This person set and quote. The rest of the article is then pay walled. But i did read the full article. There's nothing new in the rest of it. It's really just kind of detailing. The situation that has been unfolding in china. All stuff that we've talked about with the shanghai auto show protest the government wanting to meet with tesla. I think back in march just to talk about safety all things that we have followed as they have unfolded so nothing new in the rest of it.
Brain Chip Will Hopefully End Elon Musk’s Outlandish Musings
"Musk has announced that he's neuralink. Brain chip will end language in five to ten years which is just such great news because then and five to ten years. We won't have to hear elon. Musk saying things like this. Must spin on the rafer again because it did he say this on on joe rogan. I think that mentioned that in the article right. And i just find it so weird like the certainty that these men have of their hypothesis of the future. Like you know. I used to make up a language me and my sister bible study to covertly communicate rebellious desires. And like just. Because i don't have the money to throw behind that know. I'll never know if it has any legs behind swindon kingdom who just has to stop there but he gets to try all this stuff out. Did you have a secret language as a kid. You know where you would hide the words. Yeah back slang but it was just like a verger so like a guy of a gum. Spaghetti kevin gang of attacks gang and it was great. Because if you didn't tell anyone how it worked she just split the words and stick it in the middle. And i think is pretty easy to walk out but look we needed a way to communicate with each other is either that or handwritten notes of who we fancied so. Yeah i appreciate any made up language. The great thing about elon. Musk is that he will consistently say these kind of things and then continued to say them despite the fact that he said things like this before that haven't come true like he promised that at this point we would be going around and driverless cars for example or that we would be on mars or that a again. I really wanted to get inside the head of the dude bro. Phenomenon where you're like. Imagine feeling that the answers to life being funneled to you directly because you're a wealthy entrepreneur. You do martial arts
Elon Musk's Starlink Could Get a Boost From German Subsidies
"Satellite internet and other kinds of high speed. Internet service can be pricey before you can start using it. there's an upfront costs for. All the special hardware requires now. Germany is working on a program that could pay out a total of one hundred and twenty million dollars to cover those costs for its citizens. Initiative would be a boon for high speed internet providers. Like starlink the satellite internet venture from elon. Musk for more on this. I'm joined now by our germany correspondent boy pinch husky. Hey brian thanks for being here a and thanks for having me okay. So first things first. I wonder if you could start by explaining this problem of internet access in germany for us. Really why are they considering these subsidies in the first place. Yeah you see. It's a very unusual thing. That's going on around here. Because germany is europe's biggest economy and it's a technologically very developed nation a very industrialized nation famous for his various industries. Not least the car industry but however They've been struggling for whatever reason to provide fast internet to the whole of the population. I mean part of the reason is because investment hasn't been done into the actual sort hard infrastructure of of the ground networks required to bring cables to households and because germany kind of missed out on that. Now they're trying to serve leap over that. Phase of of internet access and just provide wireless internet beat from satellites or later from five g or from the wireless technologies and in order to achieve that in order to connect more people to decent internet source. They they are now considering or we'll be going ahead with subsidies for satellite internet and can you sort of connect the dots for us there. Why satellite internet essentially what. They're looking at is. They wanted to subsidize the purchase of the hardware required for households to receive satellite internet. Now the way it works is that satellite internet providers. Chaz starling elon. Musk starling that's one of the sort of bigger players in the market companies. What they do is they. Beam internet from their satellites directly into households in order to receive that you have to have a small satellite dish. You have to have a sort of a power unit and you have to have a kind of a router adapter and all that costs around five hundred euros in germany and the government is basically minded to cover the cost for one of hardware purchase in order to enable everyone who's eligible to get on the internet via satellite
Is the Bitcoin Supercycle Theory Dead?
"Today. You're looking at the super cycle theory and weather. Recent price action means that. We need to just banish it to the dust heap of history. There is nothing that people love more than telling you when things go badly that that is real life that all the excitement dreaming and optimism is fake and that the disappointment is real by those metrics. That last couple of weeks have been the realist of this cycle. Bitcoin has limited listlessly along for months. Since it's early to mid april highs and it felt even before the parade of over the last couple of weeks that some momentum had been lost maybe it was not enough new institutions buying or at least not buying fast enough for publicly enough. Maybe it was more of the trader and wail attention shifting to a theory defy dog coins. Whatever the case the scene was set for some executives force to push the mood and consequently the price even lower and along that came perfectly in the form of the fickle friend that loki. Trickster himself elon. Musk after helping. Drive the price from the high thirty thousand to sixty thousand thanks to tesla's big bitcoin by eu on effectively took it all back when he announced tesla was reversing course on bitcoin payments for vehicles due to environmental concerns that was followed up with china fudd insignificant seeming at first when it was just reuters sensationalizing policy that had been enacted for years earlier but it became much more significant when it was the vice premier of china talking about bitcoin mining bands from the highest echelons more significant still was when it was minors rapidly disgorging themselves of bitcoin and even in some cases mining machines in order to have capital to swiftly pick up and move operations should things manifest that minor selling drove. Another wave of price declines over the weekend. Although this time it was driven by spot selling not just liquidations and mandy last week can feel really really bleak. I was watching on twitter. And i saw desperation capitulation. Just real glumness. None of that fun. Bravado that crypto twitter does so well. In fact i saw a few people comment that it felt like a full bear cycle hyper compressed in a couple of days and that's not inaccurate
Why Central Banks Will Add Bitcoin to Their Balance Sheets
"Cathy. It's wonderful to be here with you again. I'm very happy to be here. Nathaniel is fit in lots of action over the last three months. So let's talk. I mean is wild since we talked so much has changed in such a short amount of time. Let's just start. I guess with the question that i think everyone is trying to sort through right now. Which is are we still in a bull market. Have we shifted into a bear market. Is there some weird dead cat. Bounce thing going on where. Where are we in this market cycle and is the cycle that we normally think about it. Even the right stick to us anymore. So we're talking about crypto here. Right crypto specifically. Yeah but i mean turns out it might. It might involve not crypto as well and the answer that question but actually Well we've just we just saw a fifty percent drop so this idea of a super cycle that that would never happen again. Well that's that's out the window. And i do think it was precipitated. By the es g movement to end this notion a which was exacerbated by elon. Musk that there are some real environmental problems here. with bitcoin with the mining bitcoin and And so i think that a lot of institutional buying went on pause. Shall i say and i think there were a lot of expectations that there would be follow through by institutions. We wrote a paper last september october. Saying that we did believe this. New asset class was finally getting the respect that it needs from institutions There have been some leaders out there. Certainly a fidelity and mass mutual and then on the balance sheet you've seen square and tesla micra strategy. Of course of course. And all of these rethought were teeing up the institutional world for some real participation in this space
Bitcoin Mining Council to Report Renewable Energy Usage

Ford F-150 Lightning Gets Elon Musk's Attention
"Sauce watching this thing late last night. It was a wild little introduction. Ford put on over there. I guess just outside detroit they had this huge projection and he didn't nighttime watching nine thirty my time and of course it was all about the electrification of ford. An all these dinosaurs coming online so to speak as far as electric vehicles are concerned because this is a big one here. I think this particular situation is bigger than they did with the machi. 'cause you know how it is with the f. one fifty. It's just a huge is a monster in the automotive gang and tesla you were talking before we started rolling feels kind of like a missed opportunity to get their truck out in the world and i know they had all they were. There was preoccupation. It's hard to make cars. And and they had their moment with the cyber trip day. Just didn't i gave them. I know a few hundred dollars once upon a time I didn't hear anything. Some people are starting to hear something. Actually talk a bit more about it in a moment cyber strikes a whole different thing though you and i were talking. How is every single trades. Person gonna wanna roll up to the job site in the cyber truck. Maybe not maybe there's a comfort level to traditional form factor but the point being is more round or my perception on the state of things as it is right now is more around ten avail- availability ability to deliver. Because we had a story from the other day about that. One enemy fighter dare you. She was saying. Where's my model x. Ordered it way back when people when it comes to tesla or any brand that they really love. Brands would a ton of fandom and hype also that innovate burr. Brands have charismatic individuals at the helm.
The Real Story of the Crypto Crash Isn't About Elon or China
"What's going on guys. It is thursday may twentieth and man. We had a hell of a day yesterday. Truly one for the record books. I think i read. It was second worst day on record. It's a bitcoin touched lows that it hadn't seen since february and the dynamics of the crash were particularly shocking. It was like watching the free fall of this entire industry yesterday felt like some combination of people scrambling to get out people scrambling to get in people scrambling to explain which flood it was that had caused this thing and then of course people scrambling to make their prognostications about where we go next now however we've had a full day which is the crypto equivalent of a week normal markets under our belts. We've recovered a lot of the losses. Bitcoin is literally all the way back at forty. Two thousand where it started. We've reset our positions and we've had a chance to more dispassionately explore what happened if you listen to the show. Yesterday you heard me go through each of the big areas of fight and argue that the issue ultimately wasn't any one of those concerns but an overall narrative fatigue nervous newbies and liquidations that made everything more extreme today. I want to expand on that using a ton of great analysis from others and the main point. That i want to make is to demonstrate. How much of these types of moves are shaped by market structure and setup rather than narratives at the end will come back and explain where i think narratives actually fit. So let's start with the setup sam tribute from research did a mega threat about this that i will reference quite a bit. He starts my pointing out that. What was clear was that the narrative driving the upswing in the winter was all about institutions getting into bitcoin and in the spring who was the notion that many of those same institutions were starting to turn to eat
Tesla Drivers Test Bounds of Assisted-Driving Features
"For years tesla's. Ceo elon. Musk has championed his vehicle's driver assistance system and he's forecasted that self driving cars are the future but some tesla drivers can't seem to wait and they've been finding ways of pushing the balance of what they're assisted driving beecher's can do and that's raising some questions about safety for more on this. I'm joined by tesla. Reporter rebecca elliot. Hey rebecca thanks for joining me. Thanks so much for having me. Okay so tell us about the functionality of tesla's assistant driver features what are they designed to do and had a tesla vehicles enforce that being used properly tesla offers and advanced driver assistance. System known as autopilot. That's designed to make operating a vehicle safer. The suite of features can help with tasks such as steering maintaining appropriate distance from other vehicles on the road. The company tells drivers to remain engaged while using the system And vehicles assess driver attention based on whether they're applying force to the steering wheel and yet sometimes have been quote unquote hacking vehicles. What have we been seeing for a long time now. Some drivers have been uploading videos of themselves to social media essentially testing the boundaries of their vehicles. In some cases the videos appear to show a vehicle operating with known in the driver's seat in others people find ways to make the vehicle. Believe that someone is holding the steering wheel such as by attaching a wait to the wheel for example and these videos are in that sort of flamboyant style of social media. You don't take time sorts of videos right. Yeah so in. One video shared on tiktok. Last year we appeared to see a tesla going more than sixty miles an hour on a highway with no one in the driver's seat while the passengers were singing along justin bieber and that's just one example of some of the types of videos that we've seen that are kind of in this
What You Need To Know About Crypto Volatility
"Spoke earlier with Bloomberg about crypto volatility. Take a listen Think Big Clinton will be somewhere between 40 and 55,000 for the next chapter before it kind of builds up enough new momentum to take out 55,000. And in the year much higher. How concerned are you about the short term volatility being introduced by Elon Musk. Listen, he learned must is a important figure in American business on certainly in the global retail crypt, the world he's a bit of a Nikon hey, was great. For a trip down when he was positive for for Bitcoin. He's caused some some issues. I think if you take the line face value, though, when he said Woz He worried that as big Quinn used more and more electricity, which it will it could have a negative impact on C two emissions. That's true for every industry. And so I think you're going to see a response from this industry like you should see a response from every industry to say hey, in this gap of time before Electricity of Green energy technique is 78 years away. We should do something to offset our footprints, and that's banking. It's in crypto. It's in tact. It's a industrial businesses isn't problematic. That, like one of the hottest currencies is a joke does and that Elon Musk, who is this, like? Sort of like face of it all, is essentially Whipping people into that one and sort of multiplying the jokes and you have all their influential people talk about even other jokes and that this sort of like does it make it harder to put on? You know, basically make the case that this is serious industry with a straight face. Listen, yes, is the answer. I don't want to discredit. The does community or any of these communities, right? What you're seeing here is a response against the monetary policy of the U. S. And the world and the frustration people have had With the system and this young generation and said, Hey, we can band together and create our own way of investing. Some of it is frivolous that I think

"The. Jim was goes no have heat for your Ilan daily this Monday, April twenty six and how was game of thrones last night. What the what did you see when the thing and they? All can you? And she, and he what the what did you think I was really going to spoil that did you really think? So 'cause I wasn't because I'm washed yet that's for after the recording. And for those of you that are like stop talking me a game of thrones. I hate game of thrones. Why does everybody talk about game three? Have you watched? It. I'll tell you this. I didn't watch it for about six years six seasons in and then I finally broke down and started watching it. And Hello there is very attractive people doing things to each other. There is dragged there is intrigue. And did I say there are dragging? Oh, they're dead people. It's like the adult version of Lord of the rings. So that's the greatest thing in the world to you all the worst thing in the world to you. But I can tell you it's so will cost him. So well acted. It's it's good. I'm just saying I'm just saying don't be Haida until you've seen it. And if you seen it, and you. You hate it. I don't wanna hear about let's test alleged Moore and goes here is an article from year, wait for it. Electric, but it's by James Dell and they're gonna buy an inventory three. What does that mean? So there's a whole bunch of model threes that are at the being seen returned or they've been used to do driving things to show people how the mole three works or somebody's configured it and they've built it. And then at the law second like, I don't want one a different one. And so there's a group of cars that potentially at the that you can get much quicker than the usual model, which is go online purchase it, and then they'll build it. And then you'll get it in four weeks, or whatever it is. So this is nice because if you wanna model three quickly now there's a way of doing it, and that's pretty cool. And sometimes if s an exa any example, and I'm sure that sometimes what can happen is that you can get pretty much the exact configuration you want. But at a significant discount because it's been driving people around, and it's not really new it's infect used. So this I think is good news for those people that need a carrot now you car exploded. And you need right now because you're very. ABC puts and very important account white full weeks, you might under those circumstances be tempted to go buy an ice care or something. Terrible. Like that will now you can go online, and you can go and see if there's something that's about what you want at about the price you want and every now and then at less than the part, you price you so I think this is a good thing. And this is what happened with s x and the conspiracy theorists at there might be trying to think, well, this is the end of tests, Oregon, but goes, you know, the conspiracy theorists always saying, it's the end of tesla. No, this is normal. This is normal. And then let Jim boys and girls. Sure, you all heard about this. But SpaceX just had a big problem. So the got SpaceX crew dragon suffered a catastrophic explosion over in Cape Canaveral. So this is the little captial. That's eventually supposed to take people into space people into space and GIO did a little fly fly up there. And then came back. They were basically testing my understanding that testing as. Out of the scape system. So when you get to Mexico when you go really fast in the maximum pressures, what they're gonna do is then sort of tests this launch escape system. So you're up there in their crew and something bad's happening with sort of a millisecond, despair, you're supposed to be able to hit this thing boom or Matic bomb, and it will fire off that captial. And so the rocket can fly away explode and new the astronauts can come back to earth, and you'll have enough thrust in this thing to land you that's the basic concept. Right. So what happened with this test? Is it exploded? Just look it just went boom. Even before they go to the point where we're going to actually do that special launch thrust thing through the super drug thrust as they're called. So it seems that it was actually the propellant everything before they even got to that part of the testing that may the dragon capsule explode, obviously, this is alternative, we don't know. And there's going to be thorough investigation. But there ain't no way they're gonna be putting people in this thing for quite a while now. So this no doubt is put space expect. Months potentially years will definitely be hearing more about this. But it's a bit of a disaster. So Guinness is the reused one. They brought it back. And I think it see to a one is what they're calling this dragon capsule and really problem. If you go online, you can see some interesting pitches of plumage of badness CSC to a one at school. So it's really a bit of a bum. But in the nine years that SpaceX has been doing this. This is really the first and worst time they've had something like this happened. So. Upsetting very upsetting. But I guess on the other hand this is why you test test retest and dude again, and again, and again they've used their the cargo and crew dragons apparently eighteen times, according to tesla Roddy. And this is the first time that there's been a failure like this Oviously. But this is why before you put humans into your little spaceship test, the crap out of it. And even then it just scares me today when I say humans in rockets because there is so much explosive force there and we've seen these disasters over the years from Nassar. It's really important that SpaceX gets this right before there was a human in there for obvious reasons. We'll let his Jim boys and girls at finish today off, let's talk about solar panels, and I have a son who actually happens to be doing electrical engineering degree just getting into it. But he's doing this environmental, engineering course, just as an introduction to environmental engineering, which by the way, he loves Hello very excited about them. But he was telling me about solar panels and now. About solar panels. And did, you know this when they took about solar panel efficiency, like a really really efficient solar panel. Right. Now's like twenty two percent efficient. And what does that mean? Well, it doesn't mean what I thought it meant. I thought that meant that the sun comes down and all those photons in waves of coming down. And it's able to convert about twenty two percent of that energy into electricity. But that's not actually what it means. Because it turns out that a solar panel put on the ground can only absorb about thirty percent of the total amount of energy that the sun is spewing onto the earth to goes a whole bunch of just as outside what it can absorb in the infrared spectrum or its way down in the lower end of the trial stuff like that. So Sola panel even if it was one hundred percent one hundred percent effective. It would only be thirty percent affected. If you know what I mean? So all of that energy that is pounding onto the earth. A solar panel is only able to work in about thirty percent of that spectrum and what we're talking about. When we talk about solid. Panel officiency how efficient it is at turning that thirty percent in your lecture. So the most efficient solar panels are doing twenty two percent of that thirty percent, right. It's pretty interesting. The other thing he showed was a graph of the cost per what over time and in nineteen seventy seven around when there was the oil crisis. And Jimmy Carter was putting solar panels on the roof of the White House. It was seventy nine dollars PO what that's how much solar panels. And now, they're Ed guessing what's the number. How many dollas per what thirty cents and that was in two thousand fifteen I'm sure it's even lower today. I know it's low today. It's probably a half third of that. Let's boys and girls the technology. Here has moved so fuss. And we've read a number of recent reports that here in the United States that Sola Pennells plus battery backup is now cheaper. Then even a guess fide Pika plant get you hit around that. So as trends continue

"The. You'll have if you're ill daily this Friday, April wait for it nine. That's right listener, boys. It goes into that. Do you hear that? That's the San of having a real microphone in your studio and not ear buds on your iphone because you couldn't make your other stuff work when you're in New Orleans say about New Orleans center. Being in New Orleans couple of times, but it hasn't been for a long time. And I'm like probably probably won't be that fun because I'm not that into live music, and I'm not that into food. And then you get the and you go this is a really great city. It's a city with a long history city with a lot of issues a little puppy, but I can tell you that it's a beautiful place. It's amazing the architecture the people are super friendly, and that liveliness that spirit of all that music and food and sort of what's going on there. You can't help. But being sort of getting swept up in it. It's got a little bit of Vegas feel to it. But in a good way, a lot of energy and Vegas is I find incredibly depressing, but going gonna say if you have a chance to go to New Orleans, go do it and some of the things that I didn't get a chance to but I'd really love to do. Apparently, they do these late night rides. They go through the streets. And then they go through the cemeteries, and I'm told that really wonderful experience. Our next time next time. I'm going to do that. So it was because last week we talked about that Ilan interviewed by God called Freedman. He's from MIT who does research in autonomous driving and other stuff. And I actually got the audio that will put a link in the show notes to the full interview. And it's really interesting, and I'm going to break in with a couple of things. But one of the things I'd like to say is this I am so sick of people interviewing Elon who don't know about Tesla's. So he's specifically says fragrances specifically says look earned his I have no stalk. We didn't talk about this beforehand. I don't drive a tesla. And they is the problem, right? There is the problem when you do these earnings Kohl's. There's all these questions that I find as a user of the stupid. And then what I really wanted him to say as he's talking about how great autopilot is. And where it's going and all that stuff. I just wish that somebody would coal some BS right there and say, okay, stop right now. Stop stop stop. Because when I drive my tests on navigate by order pod. It's still slams on the brakes at random times summit less random times like a cow. Looks like it might start to come over into your lane. Boom hits the brakes every now, and then sees a shadow or something boom. It hits the brakes. It is less than fluid. Listen when you hear Allan talk about it sounds like it's really fluid right now. And it's just getting better all the time. And it is getting better all the time. But it is so far from fluid, and yes, I believe that the new self-driving software, and hardware is going to get better and better. But I just wish somebody would hold him to the foreign say will what about the experience right now today. How do you explain that how you fixing that? Because a lot of these mostly heavy braking maneuvers. They haven't gotten up for a long time. Even with the new never got an auto pilot that doesn't require you to intervene to change lanes. It's better. But it's still like come on somebody just hold his feet to the fire just on net. One thing alone. Please. I just got sent pitch. From Robert rosenbloom from the token Tisza which head somebody who had made up a stick to put on the back of their tesla. Something like a stay back. Heavy breaking random times sixteen year old driving to highlight. That point this is a lot of people's experience when you're on autopilot that you just hope cows too close behind because every now and then it will just randomly slam on the brakes. One of the things they talked a lot about was this idea of vigilance that if you've got auto pilot in the and it's not full self driving, the people driving and staying vigilant, and how would you make sure that that's going to occur because Freeman himself and his group found in a study of pilot and some other autopilot software that people actually do remain much more vigilant than you would think. So that was good news. We not all just sort of sitting in the other seat as you've seen some pictures on the interwebs. But then Ilan said this, and I'm going to quote it in here right now, I think this is all really gonna be swept the systems improving so much so. So fast that this is going to be a moot point very soon. Where vigilance is. If something's many times safer than a person than adding a person does the the the the effect on safety is is limited. And in fact. Could be negative. So we just wanted to highlight two points from this one. I believe that's absolutely correct. At some point. And we're getting back to this in a second at some point when full self driving his real having a human intervening will not be needed. So this vigilant stuff which a lot of people are worried about will become a moot point at that point. So here's another one of the concepts as being some scientific article saying the time it takes to go. My goodness pilot is about to drive me into a poll. Let me take control of the and fix. This problem is long than if you were driving by yourself and looking up and go about to drive in a Paul, and I just turn the wheel. So this taking from the computer driving to the post and driving. Remember the term for that delay is enough that you can get yourself into serious trouble. If you're not very vigilant all the time. So that's one thing. I agree. Once you're full self driving and the car is way safer than the person. Then this becomes a moot point. Point. But again, he keeps talking about how close they are getting to full self-driving, and he doubled down triple Dan quadruples, Dan on this actually this was in response to Mr Friedmann saying what about the camera monitoring the person to make sure they're awake. So that that you can sort of tell them. Hey, you know, what the road you should be watching the road, we need help here where a computer we stupid. He said this. But if your system is dramatically better more level than that human than Dr Montaigne monitoring is not

"The. Heels. For your Ilan daily. This choose day. April sixteenth. Yes. Always have to look at the calendar. When I do that. So at first it will discussion, ladies and general goes from electric says that tesla delivers thirty five thousand model threes too happy few customers. So as you know, not many people at all have gotten muddle three three thirty five thousand dollars versions. In fact, this is the first report from a reputable source that I've seen that they actually out in the world. So tests has now it's moving away from that. So there was all this we've got to get thirty thousand dollars version, and we wait three years, and then they start pulling back on that. And now, we know that there's going to be thirty four thousand version, and it's going to have some of the stuff software limited. So the range is going to be self way limited. So it's only gonna be using ninety percent of the actual battery. That's in the some of the onboard streaming music services and live traffic visualizations and heated seats at all going to be self limited. So they're actually creating the. The standard version, plus and then self we're limiting everything and selling it as the thirty five thousand Boozman, and then we have course in the last week or so that they're going to take it off the website and hide it. So that if you wanna get this particular software LTd cheapest possible version, you're gonna have to one know that it exists and to then cold, tesla, and we're all angsty about it. Because we a lot of feel that that's a little bit bogus. They should just have it up as an option on the side for the world to see particularly in a world where they're basically a few weeks ago, saying we're going to fully online ordering and into remove that seems kind of weird they said tesla said it's because the number of people getting their range plus version, which isn't that much more expensive was six times, the number of people who are getting the really down lowest version, but still I just think it's bad politics that forever. You have been saying we're gonna have a thirty thousand dollars. And now, you're kind of hiding that version because you really. Don't wanna sell it almost certainly because you really can't make that much money out of it right now. I just think if you're going to sell it sill it, and if you're not ready don't hiding it. Like, this just feels weird. What is bits feels? Now. I actually think it's a great way to sell thirty five thousand dollars because you know, that after somebody saved up, and they got thirty five thousand version, and then a year from now, and they've saved up some more pens. They like, you know, what I wouldn't mind. Another ten percent range. What wouldn't mind streaming music services in? You know, what my buttocks are cold, and it would be really nice to turn on the heated seats, and it's all in there. And all you have to do is unlock it. I think that's great. I think that's cool. I think that's good. I just wish that they weren't being weird about it. You know, tesla always being a little weird. And the other thing I want to talk about today. German boys and girls is a report from ours Technica with Ilan mosque talking about self driving. So he didn't interview with an MIT researcher by the name of lex Friedman. It was published on Friday. And he'll on goes on to make a number of grand statements. Head of this big event that is coming on April twenty six which is all about the autonomous driving full self driving. The tesla silicon and the Russian work, and he says a couple of things like this. I quote to me right now. This seems game set an over when it comes to full self driving. I could be wrong. But it appears to be the case that tesla is vastly ahead of everybody else. Must told Freeman the test. The consumers would need to keep their hands on the wheel for at least six months or something like that. But he predicted that soon even towards the end of this year. I'd be shocked if not by next year that human beings having to intervene would be bad because that would actually decrease safety. He's saying ladies goes I've said this many times in Las p weeks he is saying that they have cracked the code. He is saying that they have vastly ahead of everybody else when it comes to full self driving cars, he is saying that the revolution is here. That by the end of issue with the new hardware three point. Oh that you'll be able to basically have a car drive better safer than a human. Now. What is not sitting there, of course, is all the questions that we have better than what kind of human Abed drive a better than a sixteen year old just got they lessons better than a really excellent safe driver ten times better two times bidder. One hundred times better Illinois has always said that you're going to have to be a lot lot better than a standard human for the regulators to say you can go smoking cigarettes and sit in the back seat and not look at the road. So there's a lot still left unsaid. But I'm just impressed by a guy that who is often often over promise that he's gone back to this over promise multiple times. I'm really excited about what we see on April twenty second. I don't think I can get it across in my words, well enough because I don't have enough of those words to say if this is true, it is years and years and. Years ahead of where everybody else's where everybody else thinks we can be the big thought leaders in this field have said this is five ten fifteen years away and Ilan saying it's six months to a year away. I still can't get my head around that he could be that wrong. Could he be that wrong? Could he be just again just completely over promising or do they truly have something magic here? They have the hardware. They have the software and they've got hundreds of thousands of cows and their training this had they done this. I think we're gonna see much better picture on. I four twenty second. I don't expect. We'll have the full picture expected. We get out of the distortion reality field, Elon Musk and an event that we're going to step back and go and hang on a minute. Those cows that were driving around and doing it fully autonomous with a really trained to do it in that era at that time with GPS locators, and and all of that stuff. What have we take that calf from one of those events and run across over to the other side of the country and drop the car in the middle of city traffic zero does that. It's the kind of thing that we won't know about. But it will give us some idea. And the fact that as we talked about on the loss talking tests for the patrons the leases that are coming. They're not going to release those cows at the end of the lease what happens here in the United States. You lose for three years and at the end of that lease you can buy the car if you want it at the whatever the valuation of the carriers at the end of that lease but test it's not going to do that. Because we're going to keep them all we're going to put them on aero Thomas rideshare network. So that's three years away. So at least believe by three years, they gonna need every single car that is coming off leases because they are going to want them for their fully autonomous rideshare network. So the they're sort of backing it up, although they can change they Monday sort of backing up this belief that they're that far ahead. I'm just I know I keep severing on this. I keep going back to it over and over again. But are they really that far ahead? My mind is blown if truly in a year from now, let's say in a year from now that Tesla's are truly level for level five or

"The. Well, there's wasn't goals in pits time for another along daily this Friday, April, twelfth belief. And so yesterday, I'm sorry that there wasn't a real Ilan daily. Because he's what happened you mind your own businessman. All of a sudden, you testing some audio your wife calls and says there appears to be some fire trucks outside the house, you walk outside your house and sure enough there fire trucks and somebody has crashed through the fire hydrant right outside your house. There's a veritable plume of water probably fifty feet high. They've also crashed through a sign in front of your house. Also crashed through the tree where your mailboxes and just like obliterated, everything and the sign has smashed through your water main. And then what happens in boys and girls is that they didn't turn off these giant hose of water. It's an incredible site. They turn it off immediately. And then what happens is that there's a backup pressure and without knowing it that Beck. Appreciate is going into your house because you'll the first puppy. Right there. And it's exploded your bathroom and water is pouring through the bathroom onto the hardwood floors down the hole into the other room. And when you discover all this you say what the and it's upsetting to you say, you don't get along daily. But insurance companies have been cold giant fans blowing this is going to be an ongoing hassle. So you've got to you know, just be happy that you have a house that you have insurance. And these things do happen and move on. So let it in general boys and girls, this is me moving on with the letter. It's exciting success. I first up and the Email is Ilan daily, podcast or one word, Illinois podcast, gmaiLcom dot com. And his first letter is from Tim McDonald and Tim asks this question for you about extended parking at the airport. This is actually a big deal. What sittings would you suggest enabled if you're going to pack your model three at the airport for about ten days? I think I could arrive at the airport with about a seventy percent state of charge would need about thirty. Sent state of charge to get home. My first thought is to use the power off button that will help with the vampire drain, but I wanna use century mode. Of course, people went break in. But I know that uses some energy that might accelerate battery drain, but there is pinned to drive LA mode. Speed limit mode does one override the other. What configuration would you use on your model three if you lifted at the airport and don't say that you would just use Uber? Keep up the good work. Thanks, actually, a really good question. And it's part of why I wish or hope the tests that will go back and think about incorporating solar panels in the cast some way because like you Tim if I go to LAX pocket side, there's a lot of solar radiation there. And there's some battery drainage that's occurring because there's vampire drainage because it's looking out to the battery itself, and that kind of thing, and so it'd be really nice even enough. You know, it's going to be a run the calf fifty miles a day to be able to give it a. A kilowatt hour or two a day might significantly extend the amount of time that you could leave it outside the thing that really drains your battery when you've got a parked is if you've got dog mode on so make sure that's turned off because it'll get one hundred degrees, and it'll turn on the air conditioners. And that will deplete the battery reasonably quickly I head some data on that that I'm going to present a little later on this show where I took my car out on a hot day. And I said at eighty degrees for hours to see how much energy it would take to keep the temperature at that rate. But I'll tell you more about that later. So that would be a big deal so Doug mode off. And then the other one is. But it's basically a over heat protection thing that you can put on the like if you forget leave the dogs in their let the cog over one hundred dog mode. You can sit at a low, right. Then then, but it's basically the same thing turn both of those off Kevin protection mode and Doug mode, and then if you turn on century mode. I don't know how much extra drainage that's going to occur. My experience is that it's not a l-. Lot that you might be using up a couple of kilowatt hours of energy per day. So if you arrive with seventy percent save the long range vision, you got a seventy five kilowatt battery. So you've got a bit fifty kilowatt hours left in that battery, but you wanna have a state of charge of bad thirty percent when you get back. So that's about twenty twenty five kilowatt hours. You'll need let's say the you need that you have to play with about twenty five kilowatt hours a battery, and you're going for ten days that's two point five kilowatt hours per day that you could sort of sustain I don't think you can't quote me on this. And I wish I had a real answer for. I don't think that century mode is going to burn more than a couple of kilowatt hours a day. So I think you're fine. But frankly, it also depends on the weather because I don't think you can turn off the other part of the vampire drench which were talked about which there is electrics. And there are things in there. That are looking after that battery if it's getting too hot. Or if it's getting to cold at likes to keep it at a reasonable temperatures. So a lot of that drainage that you get is the car itself looking after the batteries. So it depends on where you're parking and the only way you can probably really answer that right now because I did a quick Google search for you is to actually like try it out and home leave your car in century mode for two in the proximity. The conditions that you're looking at and see what happens. We'll have a lot more experience about this over time as many of us more use cows in this way, and pock them in this way. But it is a bit of a problem. Obviously the best thing you can do is if you can pocket at the airport and leave it plugged in that happens at LAX all the time. I don't know if it's still a problem, but it used to be that all these people would be flying away park their car they plug in and go way for ten days, you'd never find any way to judge at LAX. But for the people that were puck, I totally get it because you've got this vampire, drain it. So that's sort of a non answer to your problem. But it is a problem. I do have. Aleutian. I maybe you could take an Uber to the airport. I'm only joking Tim, but I feel your painted. Let's get some solar panels up in these cows in the future. Please his great case that we're would be really helpful alternatively at like every splice that you compact there would be a plug, and I think that's where we need to go just one hundred twenty volt plug here in the United States. It's gonna charge chiropractic Faust its model three it does three or four miles per hour of charging. But it's really about that issue. If I'm going away for a long time. It would be really nice to have the cop plugged in. And the solar panels up the by the airport, and it's all good. And in the future. I think we're gonna have to head that because people are not going to be able to go for two week vacation if they just got this anxiety, the hall tons like how much is my cod discharging while I'm drinking my ties in Hawaii. It's an issue person's going to be allowed to enjoy the Meiteis goodness sake. Well, this electric Kathy is just not gonna work. And letting them boys and girls, you may have read that Panasonic is pulling back a little bit the rains at the gigafactory. So number of reports suggesting that penicillin is one not going to invest in the Chinese gigafactory and to invest less than planned in gigafactory one because of the slowdown and tesla sales in the first quarter. And this makes a lot of sense. But it also makes us very anxious doesn't it it makes sense because if you're not selling as much stuff, you don't want to have the production capacity full that until you know, that you need it. Now, I'm a little bit confused little bit confused because although the number of sills required from Panasonic full model. Three was an ex was much. Listen, Q one. They still have an extrordinary back orders for the tesla Powell. Now, I know that the chemistry and stuff a little bit different. And so maybe it's just not a one for one. And so what they've said look big in a continuing vist in the gigafactory, but they think. That they can squeeze out of the lines. They've already got then investing in new lines and expansion of the gigafactory itself. So I'm hoping what this means while the causes slowing down right now. And I don't think that'll be a permanent thing. I think that'll speed up again that there we ought to fix this backlog of Pell's. I gotta tell you my pebbles. I love it fantastic. Make more of the Meghan foster. I have a whole bunch of people. I know that cannot get them yet because they're just not available. So put some more effort over there would make a lot of sense to me. There's also this suggestion that tests, the sort of been looking around for of the boyfriends and girlfriends and have done a deal with Maxwell makes a lot of batteries for both industrial and smaller uses and that maybe that pissed off Panasonic a lot. And for the China's gigafactory, they weren't really considered part of that deal. So maybe panasonic's just saying we're not like this. There's also been a report that same penicillin's not even making much money out of his deal. The battery operations actually lost about one hundred ninety. Million dollars last year. So it may be as much as a Panasonic saying. We're not sure how good these deals are for us as it is that there's been a slowdown in tesla sales. So there's I think a lot more to this than meets the I it's not just that sales were down. But there is these other issues and one does at some point if test those going to do this long term going forward and and producing many hundreds of gigawatt of batteries a year. Whether they won't just start building them themselves. They're certainly going to have the room at the gigafactory. It's only thirty percent done. And so I wonder if that starts to come into the equations kind of like apple did with its chips. It's clearly moving to create its own ships at some point. It's nice to own the whole thing beginning to end, I wonder if that's sort of where things might be headed by a little battery company that teaches you how to make batteries and then just make them yourself. But will be on us when I hear reports like this get a little anxious of things worse than we think does Panasonic. Knows something that we don't is this whole thing going to explode we need tesla to survive we so desperately need him to survive. And so whenever I hear things like this that we like. Maybe they much more on the edge than I think get a Ted anxious and account decide if there was going to be a multi trillion dollar company ten years or gone. And I think both of those could be true and Leslie today and boys and girls in for this week. In fact, unless something exciting happens over the weekend. The falcon heavy took up the Arab set and the three boosters came back, and they landed were going to get kind of motion. When I I feel like this is the sort of the spaceship future of my childhood now actually occurring the buck. Rogers thing is it happening. I mean, come on if you are not inspired by this. If you're not amazed by this. You might be dead inside. Yeah. I know it's harsh, but I'd said it did inside. And it seems like the satellite deployed and everything will ladies, new boys and girls, my name's Milhaud. But this is Ilan daily, and I will speak to you very soon maybe tomorrow, but probably on Monday, and we are recording talking tesla over the weekend. So that's gonna come early. Next week. You've go to be happy. You've gotta be excited. You've just got to be rebounded.

"The. Smell have for your Ilan daily this April tenth two thousand and nine teen. And if you like me again got sucked into believing that there was a rocket launch you room, but supposedly supposedly it's going to occur today. But all I can tell you is that I'm going to give you these reminders, but just don't change your life based on this because they keep changing the date. I think that you just go forget the weather. Forget the technical issues just fire that puppy off. And see what happens. What's the worst that could happen? I mean, really what could happen. So what should we talk about listener? Well, first, let's talk about this. And it's a story from let drink and from Fred Lambert, and tesla model three becomes the best selling car in Switzerland and not just the electric cuss. Not Sweden NAR. It's a separate city, thank in Switzerland model. Three became the best selling currents Whitson last month, beating not just other electric cars. But wait for. Right, loosening, boys and goals all passenger vehicles period. So the last couple of months, the best-selling electrica in virtually all markets has been model three so model is being introduced to Europe in multiple different countries. And it's just taking over like Inouye tops, the chech- now, Switzerland, boom tops jet, not just of electric vehicles, but of all vehicles, it is just killing it. And so although we've had some bad sales this quarter in markets. It's being introduced at least for now it is just killing. It is obviously a lot of pent up demand. And the question is going to be after that pent-up demand goes away. What's going to happen in these countries? But it's pretty cool that they've had that much in demand as it were. And let's be clear we're talking about tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of vehicles Rony talkin about a couple of thousand vehicles, but still but still it's pretty. Cool. And then there's another little thing in here electric boy yet Fred Lampitt, again, it's about the new tesla autopilot, computer. So he's so it goes the current Oro pilot, computer, two point five hardware is it about eighty percent capacity with this new stuff that they've been rolling at eighty percent capacity. Basically saying we're done here. We're doing all we can do soon as you start to get past that then you start to have frame rate drop each. And I don't know when I'm anything video that's bad. And I'm pretty sure that if you start dropping frames when you trying to drive that's very bad. But the new order poet three point zero hardware. The tesla silicon is functioning at according to tesla on himself five percent. So it's can do everything that the current one is doing and uses five percent of the verses? Eighty five percent eighty percent. So what this means is obviously, the new hardware is efficient at doing all the rendering doing all the stuff that needs to do and has a lot of headroom to do a Helo more and a lot faster. And we knew this. We knew that this computer was ten times faster, maybe twenty times foster. And now we're seeing it in some of these reports, and surely this is going to result in much of performance. So I've gotta tell you I've now been driving a lot of malls. But a reasonable number of miles with my current version of the update of auto-pilot navigate on autopilot, which changes lanes for you. And I gotta say pretty good when there's too many cows around. But I'm still finding when there's a lot of cousin low-traffic adjust will not change lines. Because you have to be an idiot to drive on Los Angeles rose and be able to change lines. You just have to be full Mad Max to get that done. It doesn't like it. It slows Dan's like, please. Let me in a nobody will. And there is that merging issue. And there is still many times where exhilarated to fussed where a normal. Good driver. Wouldn't do it and breaks to HUD, again, when I know Moga driver probably wouldn't do that. So I'm hoping we're all hoping when software I mean hard with three point outcomes it because it's got so much room ring at a snooze all of these Conan's, but I'm really concerned about how long it's gonna take. Because I I think I told you that it's taken me two weeks to get my model s into the service center, and I had to move the day. It was going to go in the eighteenth. I had to just move at one day because you know, I had a conflict, but I couldn't move the service one day I had to move at two weeks because there's a two week waiting time is a two week waiting time right now. And then they're going to put computers in hundreds of thousands of model threes and Xs, and as they really need to put so much money time n people into the service center just to catch up. It's a little concerning. I think is this you, okay? They've talked to Bill we head production. Hessels? We had delivery has this year of the service nightmare so of help. So as hell this year until they can get their act again. Unfortunately, you gotta spend a lot of money doing this for not necessarily more income, but you've got to do it. Because if the word on the street is that you shouldn't buy tesla because you just can't get the dang thing service, which is to right now in so many places that's good for sales. I can't look friends in the services fine. They just come to your house. I can do it in an era too. Just like aliens in not yet. They can't it's pretty bad huge waiting times for even issues that are a bit of a problem. Other people on the interwebs have been saying exactly the same thing. Waiting weeks, sometimes months for some pretty basic stuff. So we are in service, tesla hell, you didn't hear it here first, but you heard it

"The. For your daily this April. Second two thousand nineteen and the numbers are in, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls the numbers are in. According to electric that sales in Europe are really starting to take off. So they are reporting that they've delivered over five thousand model three vehicles in Norway alone. That's right laser doing boys and girls in no way. Learn and in Netherlands, the model three is being the most registered car last month with just a few weeks of deliveries in the quarter. It became the fifth. Most Seoul Bickel in the country, according to Fred land. But it also is entered the Australian market into the Swedish market. So there's lots and stuff going on here. And all this to say is although we expect a pretty slow month here in Los Estados Unidos in Europe things should be going. Well, and also China China, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls is getting a whole bunch of these as well. But as Ilan has noted. It's been a real challenge. This logistic challenge of getting cows into Europe into China. It was hard enough here in the United States. And that's where tesla loose. Can you imagine how hard this is to get this going globally? You cannot overstate what is happening here. Even though Illinois has tried to sort of explain this. This is the first American cut company that's for real company in one hundred years, and we have very critical, and I think we should continue to be very critical of Tessler and some of the things they do and some of the ways they do it and some of the immaturity. And the way they do the pricing, and it's up, and Dan that's all over the place. But this is a massive massive undertaking that they're doing not only to build cars, but to build great cars fast cars cows with autonomous features cars that don't have guests engines caused that run on trinity and then to sell them across the world and to also produce an infrastructure so that they can be real causing. So a supercharging network. I mean, if you really do take a step back for sick and. Look at what they doing. It's kind of amazing, and although there in heavy debt, of course, it's amazing that they've been able to do it without having somebody like apple cash behind them. It's kind of an insane thing to do. This is such a difficult thing to do. Got to say today today a little bit of a heads off to the people at tesla and the incredible stuff that they're doing. It's still not sure of ultimately it's going to work because they do kind of live month to month. But they're doing amazing things. Now having said that let me say this. There is a sort of disturbing report from business insider, this is Graham rapier, and it says heck is tesla into oncoming traffic by placing three small stickers on the road. What cyber security researchers from keen labs were able to fool a test as older pilot into merging into oncoming traffic. Now, they also did a few other things as well. But this is a group of really smart people who get paid to hack into things. And so what they did is that they put some little sticky things on the ground and their elder really confused, the tesla and made it Dr really weird. So this is a little frightening. Basically what they did is that they took a couple of little dots that look like sort of north. Lane markings, and they just put them. So that made the Catholic that it was to merge into oncoming traffic so misleading autopilot to drive in the rook direction is bad because people who are stupid and evil could go and draw some line markings like this and basically have people have head on collisions. So tesla is going to have to find a way around this. I'm glad that these hackers. Did it I that tesla canal sort of deal with this? But it's a little concerning. These are the kinds of stories we're going to hear more and more of because they are just bad people in the world now that caused to become more autonomous. How do we feel those cows to do terrible things to the people inside? So tesla get on it now lose and Jim boys and girls here in the United States. We are talking a lot about wolves about building great all in the southern part of the United States. So we can now have a discussion about that. If you'd like, whether that's a smart idea or not. But I'm k because there's a better wall coming general, boys and girls, and it's already been. Fifteen percent built. And that is a great wall in Africa. We multiple countries in Africa, a building a wool. That's right. You heard it here. I they are building a wall. But this will lead his new one boys and girls is actually wool of green wall of trees because as you know, that the Sahara desert is getting bigger and bigger and bigger because of climate change, it is really destroying enormous amounts of land. But a tons out that if you plant a whole bunch of trees, you can change that process, you can prevent that process. And you can actually bring back things like water and rain, and so this is occurring right now. And so I want to clip in few now from the great wall dot org. This sort of inflammation piece about this. This is pretty inspiring stuff. Who would have thought that just planting trees could have such an incredible affect well. Actually, if you listen to daily, you'd know this because we know that if we just. Plant somewhere. Ran a couple of trillion trees, we could suck up all of the c o two that we've spewed into the air in the last ten years, but it is amazing. And I have talked about this before that just by having trees, and shrubs, you can create a new micro environment. So that now the clouds, come and rain comes and you can actually reverse some of this devastation, the Sahara desert. If you look at some of these videos, it's kind of scary. These time left is over time of allows few decades how it is spreading like a plague of just saying taking over what used to be able to just making it desert. So listen to this the sale region on the southern border of the Sahara desert. He's on the frontline of climate change. Global warming and over farming are destroying healthy land threatening the lives of millions of people.

"Have community batteries. Now. The one question my wife was asking is do these make any noise because they're going to be on the other side of the house from where we sleep which is fine. It's good. But it's going to be near a spare bedroom, and I looked it up on the YouTube, and it looks like produces about fifty disabilities of a low grade sort of when it's cooling, and it's got an active cooling system. Just like the cows themselves and fifty disability is supposedly like two people having a quiet conversation not screaming at each other quite compensation. So I'm hoping that sort of baseline white noise through a wall is not going to be something that is a big deal, but whole itchy and if you ever come and stay in my spare room and you'd like it to bed the Powell's a stain. Okay. You're staying. And of course, these are not inexpensive and a number of the YouTube videos that you can find articles that have been written Isabelle. Out payback payback really depends on if that's what you're going for if you're doing this for financial reasons, or if you were thinking about doing it for financial reasons, you really gotta look at the difference between you'll peak rates and your non pig rates and the difference between rights if you're on a time of use time of useful. Like, you have to pay lots when it's. It's. Five o'clock to eight o'clock at night and really cheap overnight. Then you can buy a basically, cheap parent, Philip your Powell if you don't have solar panels, and then give it back to yourself during the peak period, you have to do that math, and it's not necessarily easy, and you have to factor in a number of things, but you can get payback periods as low as four or five years on these and also, particularly depending on some of the rebates that you might get these can be pay periods, which are pretty short. If you don't care about payback period of this is about Becca plug. It is in my case. It's a really important for us to have backup in the studio and for the frigid hunt. So that's really the reason to do it. And also because I'd really like to be able to say I'm one hundred percent renewable, and I know it because I can full all the electrons from the sun to my panels to the Powell into the home into the studio into the cows. I would really like to be able to do that. And also, you know till let story, but each one of these custody at five thousand fifty five hundred dollars my total Bill from Tesla's over twenty thousand. So these three so it's five fifteen thousand plus some extra taxes and all this other stuff and installation. And so it came over twenty thousand dollars, which is obviously a large chunk of money. And so you want to get some payback on that. So after you get some money back from maybe the feds and state, although that's happening list. And there are even some local authorities that give you some money back for this. If you in particular, if you do something like this. If you say, look we are allowed to use twenty percent of this battery to help stabilize the grid will help you pay for your battery. So in some areas of the country and probably the world there is really big incentive. So you can get these for not that much money. So that's it. That's tesla installed day one. And also going to say that the two guys in stolen. He really knows very professional very happy with them. So that is day one day two tomorrow won't be that exciting. So we'll talk a bit some other stuff as well. But Fennell, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls there it is. Oh, the other thing I should say before I saw enough is it. Basically the whole day. We didn't have the Param because they were playing with Perry bits out there. So they shut off the Maine's as it were. And I had to live without power so headed I do that. Well, I left the fridge closed that was first thing, and I had sandwiches. And then what I did was. I basically had charged up my laptop charged up my ipad. Am I phone before? They turn the power of. So then what I was able to do is use the laptop to work use my iphone as an internet connection. And then do a connection between my phone and the laptop and also to the ipad. And so I was able to watch the Gulf while doing my work. Yes. I was multitasking. I was it wasn't good as having the big studio and the big screens and all that. But you know, it's amazing how modern laptops, lost four hours. If you've got a good one. So I have a maximum that go and I use the air and its battery loss for a longtime as does the ipad. It just like ten hours bet your life on that puppy. So with a phone connected to your laptop which is getting charged from your laptop and your reasonable good LT connection. I was able to use things like Google docs and slack and g mile and a lot of the stuff that I usually do obviously slow right? Then when I have a dedicated wide connection, but it worked really well and in five G world coming to us in a few years. This will be kind of the gnome. We'll probably just use L potable five g connections for everything they tell us it's going to be up to a gigabit ably that one I'll sit, but it is going to be fast, but it's gonna take a while to roll up. But there's another show that five G. It's about Tesla's. We'll talk more tomorrow on this along that is quite daily.

"Some customers kind of ticked off about it. So it's just about four weeks after the originally said it will be available and they haven't shipped a single one. According to the verge and. So boys and girls a lot of people are lead upset about this. So what does that mean? I don't know what that means. But if I go onto the test the website right now, and I try and get a standard range version. The estimated delivery is six to eight weeks now and ice wit you. Oh well accounts whip. I swear to you that when it first came out it said four weeks so something is up with the production of that either. Because they're selling enough of the higher end vehicles in Europe and China that sort of pushback some of these sales of the lower cost Cas. Or maybe there is actually a production issue with that smaller battery peck, pure speculation. We'll keep an eye out to see what happens next and a couple of Ilan dailies ago, we talked about what's the mile per gallon equivalent of walking we said somewhere around two hundred four hundred miles per gallon equivalent ready for another one of these ridiculous ideas. Well, he is one for you. What's the model? Pogue Elon equival equivalent sorry of riding a bicycle. And let's say that you're not in great shape. And you're writing about nine miles per L. We'll there's a core answer to this Nicola answer is if you do the math that the average person would get about five thousand miles per gallon equivalent that can't be right Canet. And indeed, it may not be right because it depends on a lot of different factors. So other people's answer. This is you've got affect factor in a sort of a twenty percent officiency of turning food into energy and ATP that humans use to make their muscles work. And so it's probably more like a bad a thousand miles per gallon equivalent, but the point is that in general, boys and girls the point is it's an even more efficient way of getting around than walking. And it might be like five or ten times more efficient. Oh, I know that you're excited about these. And there are more coming. Don't you worry? But Fidel latest boys and girls that's enough of Ilan daily. And we're gonna talk more tomorrow about the Powell in. Delay Shen day one. They said it's gonna take two days. I know the not gonna turn it on because it's going to have to get inspected. But I'll be just phone alling it and looking at it, and touching it and take pictures of it soon as the install occurs, actually. And lastly for today, I've had take in the wife's ex of the take the way exceeding because of three issues. I issue the center air conditioning in the backseat doesn't work for some reason. There's no air blowing out of that thing. There's some actuator issue. They're gonna get that fixed. The second thing that's in there right now. Second thing is that the windscreen wiper on the driver. So I'd goes too far off the glass and back and goes clunk clunk clunk. So that's good. That's an easy fix tweak it, and then the loss one is the tesla x was not talking to the app and also when you're in the test irks, the you could not find out real time updates of the supercharge network. And we're having problem with the maps. So it turns out I took it in today. And they said, it's sort of the LT cellular module. The problem is they fixed the extra actuator for the conditioning and the fix the weapons, but that module they already had a piece infamy because they could tell because thirty run diagnostics that was the problem the one that they go in isn't working properly. So they're gonna have to get another one from the parts department. The parts department is Pomona which is not that far away. It's about an hour and traffic away from where I dropped my Carol. But they said not gonna be the cop finished until Friday. So here's the problem late in doing boost goes with hood this many times, and that is service. These cows are still having to go in way too often. This is almost a brand new. It is a brand new Catholic three months ago, and it said to go into service, and this module broke within it's been broken for like two months and the service turnaround time where we hear these magical things from Illinois about how it's going to be within hours for most people. This one didn't gentlemen, boys girls is choose day Wednesday Thursday Friday, this is gonna be four days. Now it turns out. I have an extra car right now. So this is not a big deal for me. But and they'd give me a car if I need it, but still it's kind of a hassle so boys and girls go to say, though, that the people at the service center provided really really at standing kit that was so nice and so professional. It was a really great experience. I just wanted to back. I don't wanna get enjoyable anymore. From the wife in jimbo's goals, the show is Illinois early. Talk to you tomorrow.

"The. Number goes, no have here for your ill day this Wednesday much. I've got a check this every time twenty seventh two thousand and nineteen. And yes, lead boys and girls today is tesla trian stole day. I hope by the time. You're listening to this. I'm hoping that the tesla people are in their van driving towards my house with three can't them three Powell's to do the old backup of the old healthy house. We will see later boys and girls, we will see full report for report coming tomorrow. That's what will be about tomorrow. But for today listener, boys and girls, there's some good news for those of you that live in countries that drive on the wrong side of the road. And I used to live in one of those countries cold a stroller and the UK in the wild. Somebody took a picture of a right hand drive model three which is really pretty exciting. It's from Reta, Mr. salty peanuts. I love these retina, Mr. salty peanuts on the I two eighty. So a right hand drive muddle, and this story is on electric, the exciting thing about this different bojangles is that there's a lot of people in the case. There's a lot of people in the strays that wanna get themselves on a tesla. But because in both of those countries, I believe that Qasr way more expensive than the US the model S animal exit out of reach for most people, but the model three while still being an expensive car will be much more in line with the kind of prices that you would spend on a mid range vehicle in those countries. And as I've said before in Strayer that means somewhere around sixty ish thousand dollars, which again is not cheap cab. But it does bring it down a little bit better than a hundred and fifty to two hundred thousand dollars for an X. Thank you very much because of the way the model has been made in that simplified interior. We've just got the screen in the middle. It is probably true that is easy to produce a Ryan hand model in this type of car than it is in a standard car. I'm might be talking out of my bottom. But I believe that that is probably true. I also read some good news on tesla. Roddy tesla Roddy is reporting that there's this German comic as in cool dish beagle. I don't know how to pronounce that. So forgive me, if I just destroyed that, but they got their hands on a model three and they did a review, and generally that was super positive first of all the fact that the model three is so zippy fast zero to one hundred dollars an hour and three point five seconds top speed of one hundred and fifty five and validated. Oldest? Yes, that's true. Putting it ahead of some really high-performance sedans that come from Germany like the BMW M three. They like the fact that there's lots of Kevin spice. They loved the dogma. They love the over the air updates. They were not so happy about some of the stuff that we're not so happy about that. There's a bit too much reliance on that fifteen inch Cinta console screen for things like I just want to open up the glove compartment for goodness sake. Couldn't you just put a little Novi no on there. Now. This is a big deal. Right. Because this is really. Big publications being around just post sick. And we'll we'll has a circulation of almost a million copies. Po week one of the biggest publications in Europe, according to test ready. So it's a big deal. And they're saying, you know, the German kinda manufacturers need to sit up and take notice because this American manufacturer with this electric vehicle might become into ate your lunch. So it's nice to have these reviews because I think all of that stuff is true. This car is fast. This has some great features. I agreed that there is some stuff. That's not so good about the fact that there is this incredible reliance on the fifteen inch screen and also people have noted here that the interior trim and stuff isn't really at the same level as the high end Mercedes and high MB news, I expect that they might get to that. But once you drive model three you don't wanna go back to any other. Now that is the kind of advantage that tesla has right now. But a lot of that is simply about the fact that the electric. Drive train is simply better smoother more talk than an ice drive train. So when Mercedes and win BMW have real electric house with Rio range that we ever compete much more head to head with tesla except for one thing. And you know, what that is? She losing was that one thing is those charge network these companies, even if they have vehicles that are almost as good or as good as Tesla's and model threes, a model wise, I would still not say go by Mercedes or a BMW electrica, even though it's really good because you need that to charge network to make it a real for those long distances, so those common factors are you listening? Hello, get busy stout. Building out the networks for long distance charging or for when you're driving long distances for fast, DC charging is this thing on you listening. Oh, I doubt it tesla. Roddy also has a rendering of SpaceX steel. Yes. It steel starship as. It's reentering, and it's pretty sweet looking. So again, this is the buck Rogers looking starship, and as its reentering here, they've got from the popular mechanics, April twenty nineteen issue. A rendering of what this starship is gonna look like, and it sort of glows red and white hot as it reenters. It looks pretty spectacular by the way account wait to see this thing.

"Well, what Jim voice time for Nealon daily this March twenty fifth two thousand nine t now here in Los Angeles. This weekend was the big L A marathon twenty five thousand people going to run twenty six miles twenty six point two twenty six point two miles. And I was thinking to myself. So you know, what is the mile per gallon equivalent of a person walking progressive? I would do the marathon. I would certainly walk it. There would be no running. And so it did little internet searching for this silly little question. And it turns out that there are various estimates that the average person walks with a mile per gallon equivalent of what trying guess, no, you know, miss incorrect somewhere around four hundred miles per gallon equivalent somewhere in net area later on Ellen daily. We'll talk more about the most efficient way to get from point a to point b over the land. And I've got some really interesting statistics for it. But then you go, and if you're really. Running hard. If you're pushing yourself it gets down to about two hundred miles per gallon equivalent, so if you're trying to sell it, should I jump in the model three to go down to the show that's mile away to pick up the cookies and the milk, then probably you should walk because it's more efficient than your cat. Even though you're very efficient. And it's good for you and stop eating so many cookies, by the way, a couple of stories for you this Monday, first of all free supercharge back. So if you give somebody your code, and they get a tesla, you can get a thousand miles of free supercharging, and you can be put now in the running to win some prizes. Like, I dunno roadster, and this kind of stuff, so the very tortured very on again off again, sort of referral system continues to get tweet a lot of people were sort of upset at the referral program because there are certain individuals that were getting big time benefits from the referral. So a lot of tesla blog is in YouTube is would put their referral codes out there. Lots of people would use it. And they would get rewards. I've never really had problem with that. Good on them anything that helps to sell more Tesla's. I'm good with. But the thing I have a bit of a beef with it. So like it's on it's off. It's this. It's that it's coming. It's going. It's really annoying, and it's like just have really good referral program. And just keep it in place. So we know what's going on Schule you can tweak a little bit. But the same thing with the price is going up and down and sideways and the referral program. It's here it's gone. There has blit it's all just seems quite unrequited silly annoying on provisional. But there it is in general boys meals for now, you can use referral codes and get about a thousand miles of supercharging if your referral cut is used, and if you use a referral code and to get away from this few people getting lots and lots of prizes than they are going to do this lottery thing where you get to go in the luxury of somebody uses your referral code, and you can get one of these toys, but remember at least here in the United States. If you win a two hundred fifty thousand dollar toy you've got to pay the tax on. Upsetting. And there's this hacking Agathon thing, the people go hacking into things, and so this is the porn to own heading event this year it was in Canada and tesla put up a cow. I think it's the only common factor that puts vehicles out there to us. These really genius hackers have at civic and break into the cow. Well, it turned out that a team from fluoro- Esotique. That's the number. My guess there were able to break in through the web browser which always seems to be an area of weakness for computers and other places. So they broke broken through the web browser and they got a free car out of it. And then what tesla does is now runs around and tries to fix that loophole. I actually think this is a fantastic idea gave these hackers some real incentive like a new car and get busy number of days like really pound away at this thing and see if you can break in it makes me feel better. The tesla is doing this to make my cat more secure when it comes to browse in the car, they're going to change to chromium. So if you look on electric and tesla Roddy this being variety of polls and questionnaires that show. The basically nobody uses the browser in the tesla. And there's a reason that nobody uses the browser and the tesla it's because. When she is. So smart, it's ridiculous. It's just terrible. So they're going to change to the chromium web browser which is supposedly a significant leap Boston. Now, we've been hearing the bras is going to get better for loan time. But maybe this'll be the thing that will make it. A bit more useful. You've got that beautiful big screen. And of course, you shouldn't be using it while you're driving even on autopilot. But when you're parked or if you've got somebody that's driving with you. You'll be really nice to utilize that big screen and check the weather at the destination or whether there was collusion on it. I don't know if it's you know today I'd like to use it goes. And we've also been hearing a lot about tesla autopilot updates. Now, the frustrating thing about this is because the updates don't go to everybody at about the same time. I'm feel like I'm like to updates behind at this point. But the latest update coding to electric now allows your tesla to give you a warning that there is a red. Light. Apparently, it's not going to stop for you. It's going to say, hey, you is red light there. Maybe you should not be blowing through it at fifty miles an hour. And also there appears to be some lane change detection going on. So the car is slowing down to allow other cows come in somehow it seeing either by movement or by the blink fleshy light. It didn't Dinka tink. It saying that slowing down to allow that person to come in this according to video and a dash Cam from relative by the name of pirate a book something like that that it's either seeing this subtle movement of the other or it seeing their fleshing indicator and the test is slowing down. Now. This is something that probably has been occurring before. But not very well in that, you know, sometimes your tesla that will just hit the brakes and part of the theory going around the is that it's detecting these cows that might possibly be coming into your lane and freaking out and rather than doing a slow deceleration. It is hitting the brakes quite powerfully which I got. I tell you is soon burnoff wing doesn't make me think that they're anywhere near ready full self driving and on that point, Jim boys and girls is an article from tests already that says that there are people who go in and sort of look at the code behind the walls behind the fouls, the Tesla's, again, they sort of hackers and people who know such things, and it appears that hardware three point. Oh is now being put into some of the newest vehicles that are coming off the line. So that is good news. Right. Because this new hardware that is by tesla is supposedly, you know, two thousand times faster than the prior really fast Invidia stuff, and it really needs. It does really feel like that. There is simply an inability to assist the frame rate as it were. And if we can get up to like two or three hundred frames per second and process that information, it just seems that that will make things a lot better. And if you bought full autonomous driving, then supposedly they're. Going to pop out the old computer and put in the new one for freebies, which will be good. And we're told me by Ellen by the end of the they're going to be feature complete. And then they're just going to have to wait for you know, the governmental organizations to say you can use it. Do I believe that? I don't think so we've been hearing that you know, full self-driving is going to be here by the end of the for the last few years, we've been hearing they are gonna do a trans US drive without any driver intervention for years. And then they just like stop token bat like not we're not going to do that. We could do it. If we really gained the system, but we are not going to do it. So whenever I hear these stories even from Ilan, it's going to be here at a particular date. I think y- sure I'll believe it when I see it. Boys and bills the show is Ilan daily. The other show is talking tests that would come and Robert and I'll speak to more tomorrow. But remember this don't forget this that your mile per gallon equivalent from walking is way better than even your tesla. And it's good for you. So let's get off the cash together.

"And we're trying to dress those problems. Run. So I'm giving the speech the Wilson center where I'm pointing out. The the drinking water today worldwide is probably the biggest environmental threat, we have when you have one to three million people dying annually because of lack of potable water or water sanitation. I think that's a crisis. I don't think the international community is spending enough time or resources trying to address that problem. And if I hear you correctly, you're saying all of this tension energy politics over on climate change is essentially misguided. It should be over here. I wouldn't say it's all misguided. But I think we need to be providing more resources and attention to the waterside. We have one thousand children die every day worldwide because they don't have safe drinking water. That's a that's a crisis that I think we can solve. We know what goes into solving a crisis like that it takes resources, it takes infrastructure and in the United States is working on that. But I really would like to see maybe the United Nations the World Bank focused more on those problems today to try. To save those shows those thousand children state, they have names we know who they are on the climate change. It is it is an important issue that we have to be addressing and we are addressing but most of the threats from climate change or fifty to seventy five years out what we need to do is make sure that the people who are dying today from lack of having drinking water and third world countries that problem is addressed and that's money. That's going to come not from the United States government talking about foreign aid to deal with this. We've talked about what we have some aid. What is the mechanism to build better pipes and create better filtration here in the United States? We've we have a number of different innovative water financing programs pride grants loans. Those can be models for the United Nations. World Bank, other international organizations to us to provide money to third world countries. We do a number of pilots, the United States has pilot programs in Jamaica, Peru, and Panama, we're we're working with those communities. We also have a new water lab that we've helped set up with USA ID in Ghana and Africa. We need to take these pilots, and they bring them to the next generation, and that's going to take help and support from the international bodies such as the UN or the World Bank. We've learned a lot on how to help countries and small communities around the world deal with their water issues. But we just haven't taken that next step. We have to do that. If we're going to try to save the people are dying from lack of potable water today when the critics say you're just ignoring climate change, you will say. People are dying now of bad water, and they're not dying now because of climate change. Yes, I would say that. But we're also addressing climate change as I said we're trying to reduce CO two. We have two major regulations coming out this year that will reduce CO two here in the United States. We've already reducer Shia to fourteen percent since two thousand and five we're doing much better the most most westernized countries on reducing their CO two emissions. But what we need to do is make sure that the whole world is focused on the people who are dying today. The Faouzi children that die every day from lack of drinking water that is that is something where we have the technology. We know what it will take to save those children in internationally. We need to step up and do something there. Thanks for your time. Mr. administrator premium much.

"Where lead might be which is the problem in Flint Michigan. And and this is a proposal that we're going to be putting out this summer that I think is going to help a lot of areas make sure and ensure the public that they have safe drinking water people in Flint already suffering the consequences of this the other cities, I mentioned have legitimate anxiety about this is distinctly as you can what can you tell people in those impacted areas is going to change under your watch. And give them a greater sense of confidence about the water. Either they consume where their children consume again ninety two percent of the water in the country. That's cold all of our. So that standards. I I realize that I'm but we're not good for anyone who lives in Flint Michigan. What does because we've been working with Flint and their water now meets the criteria. And we continue to work with them. We continue to test the water in Flint. We're testing the water in a lot of the water testing happens by the states and local governments. So we're working with the states and local governments to make sure that they're testing the water in the in the in the most accurate way and getting information out to the public. You know, part of the problem with Flint was there is a breakdown in once they got the data once the the city of Flint the state of Michigan the Obama EPA once they got the data. They sat on it. We're not doing that. As soon as we get information that there's a problem, we're stepping in. We're helping the local community get that water system cleaned up. And that's last month. I went to Baltimore we gave them a new loan for it's called a with water infrastructure loan to help them with their water system. We have a number of programs. We're reaching out and making sure that. Americans have the safe drinking water that that they need and deserve regardless of their zip code and their economic background. So when you over deputy administrator, Joe mansion West Virginia supported you. He did not for becoming administrator. One of the reasons he said, he didn't think you aggressiveness on clean water in West Virginia address that concern. And and I talked to Senator Manchin both before and after the vote, I was a little surprised that he didn't support me because he he does know that our plan for P FOSS P pfoa, which is the chemicals. He is concerned about in West Virginia. It's the most regressive. This this agency has ever taken on a chemical of concern. We actually involved all of our program offices in developing our management plan for dressing FOSS flow. We've already instituted cleanups in at least eight or nine different communities around the country. We've assisted states in a couple of dozen instances of going after working with the states to go after the the polluters for the pe- people. We've released new texts talk city standards for the chemicals. We're working on creating the drinking water standard. This is the first time that we involve all of our program offices across the entire agency to address an emerging chemical of concern. And this is a chemical that's been out there for forty plus years. So from your point of view, you understood the risk and communicated, but Senator mentioned in getting the message, I we certainly gave them all the information. I was a little surprised by this all they've at that green new deal appraise it. Well, it's it's certainly an aspirational anything wrong program. Yes. Absolutely. In fact, on the drinking water side, the green new deal does not value. A these nowhere in the documents is at value. Having reliable electric grid reliable electric grid is absolutely necessary to provide drinking water you have to have the electricity. When we as a first responder when we go into communities hit with a hurricane or some other natural disaster. The first thing we do is try to make sure that electric grade is back up and running in order provide the drinking water for those communities. The green new deal does not value that at all your previous. We usually climate change legislation has made one of the principals make sure that we have a safe reliable electric grid. Does not do that. They don't value that you're reading of it is that it's indifferent to electric grid would've just assuming that it's going to be fine and inspiring other directions. You you can't change the the electricity makeup of our country that where we get our power from with without impacting the grid. And if that's not one of the criteria that they're using than that plan is is deficient. We have to ensure that we have a reliable electric grid. Also, Ford -able for people to make sure that we have electricity on the public health side. You're you're asking my opinion renew deals. EPA administrators. We have to have a reliable electric grid in order to ensure that we wanted to have drinking water for the American public. You know, Mr. administrator that part of this conversation is by definition impressionistic people see things happening, and they they're not scientists. But they want him. They look at the fires in my home state of California that seemed more ferocious and widespread than before. It's just an impression people have the look at the flooding in the mid west right now in places, they're not accustomed to seeing it. Is there anything illogical from your perspective about this impressionistic view that things are getting worse? And when you hear Democrats running for the nomination at twenty twenty we're a catastrophic situation is there anything unreasonable about those impressions or that rhetoric. Yes, I think it is unreasonable. I think I assume that the people running for president or going to be trying to paint, the countries is in horrible shape, but you know, our waters cleaner than it's been in forty years on the air side through criteria airplanes, the six criteria airplanes that we judge air quality has improved seventy three percent since the nineteen seventies. Our air today is cleaner than it was in the seventies. Our water today it's safer than it was in the nineteen seventies. All the environmental indicators continue to get better. Our CO two levels are decreasing. We have incredible environmental successes. We're getting last year. This agency got twenty two Superfund sites delisted, which is the largest number of Superfund sites. Delisted since two thousand and five we are making incredible progress across the board. I I don't I don't expect the members were running for the the people running about the general public will acknowledge that what they read the general public gets information from the news. I. Don't think the news sources it really covers the environmental indicators that are improving. They don't explain to the public that air is cleaner that the water is cleaner that we're getting super funds claim super front. Imagine yourself sitting at a dining table, and there's a set of Americans your constituents innocence. And they say, it sure looks worse to me Mr. administrator, why am I wrong where you're wrong because it's not worse. The all the environmental caters are better. And they're in providers. The floods all that is just what? Well, the fires floods are different. That's that is. Las either of the intensity there. That's all just what well know the number of large hurricanes has has actually gone down over the last ten years is that there's not been an increase in and major hurricanes over the last ten years. There is there's certainly some data showing that some of the hurricanes are more ferocious or there's more rainfall during the hurricanes. But when you look at the hurricanes over the last fifty hundred years, there's conflicting information there. But when something does happen people seem to focus on that. And they think it's the worst it's ever been or the things are getting worse. But I I want to make sure the American public understands the air is cleaner than it's ever been our drinking water is safer than it's ever been people should not be concerned about that. I mean, they turn on the tap. And if there are concerns we're on top of it. We're we're taking a look at the lead pipes as I mentioned, the lead and copper pipe rule. We're testing where p FOSS and the the new chemicals of concern where they're occurring and where they are there. We're going in. We're getting them cleaned up. And when the reports. Jack up about the effects of climate change produced by some of the agencies within this administration and outside experts pointing to something getting worse, you look at those reports and say, they are just what alarmist whether it's certainly some alarmist aspects to them, you know, a lot of the media report on the assessment that came out last fall focused on the worst case scenario. Right. Right. You read, right? But if you read the entire report, there's a number of different scenarios that were that were studied in most people focus most of the media focused on let's call the eight point five, which at this point, even the United Nations IPCC body is moving away from that worst case scenario calculation, so if you look at the medium risk factors and the medium calculations. Yes, there things we need to be concerned about, but we're working on that as I said our CO two emissions of gone down since two thousand and five fourteen percent since two thousand and five we have our two major regular. Nations of for the power plant regulation that we're becoming out final. This summer will reduce the CO two coming from the electric power sector by thirty four percent. We also have our new cafe standards, which will reduce CO two on approximately the same level that the Obama pro- proposal would have reduced. So we are reducing CO two. We are taking it seriously CO two is going down. And

"Industry. Well, first of all, I I wasn't just a call lobbyists. I represent over twenty different companies I represent including air quality management district in California. I represented a solar company it I've done a lot of work on for a lot of different energy companies over the course of my career in public interest groups as well. But when when I when I became the acting minister administrator last summer when President Trump called me and asked me to take over the agency he said continued to clean up the air continue to clean up the water. And continue to deregulate to create more jobs for the American public. We're doing all three of those when I talked to all of our EPA employees. I talked about providing more certainty to the American public certainty on our EPA programs certainty on our work with the states and local governments and the most important one for me is more certainty. The American public on how we communicate risk on the agency has in my opinion has has dropped the ball you times over the last few decades overstating risk sometimes overseas and times understating after nine eleven there's there's comments by the ministry with the time that it was safe to move back into the condos and apartments around ground zero in New York City that information ended up not being correct? Like that happens. Exactly when something like that happens when there's a large instant like the what we face in Texas right now when there's a large incident, we need to make sure that we we get the risk. Correct. We communicate to the communities involved. And then if the risks changes if we give more formation later, we need to go back to those same people and explain why are are risk characterization has changed in communicate to them. What is the risks that they face oftentimes, people are afraid of something that they don't need to be afraid of sometimes they're afraid of they're not afraid to something that they should be. So we needed to do better job across the board. And I talked about that with our EPA employees. Every time I meet with any group, VP employees. I talked about the need to do better risk communication for the American public risk and communication climate change man-made. Yes, or no is man certainly contributes to it. Yes. Absolutely. And. Perhaps disproportionately, but we're reducing our CO two since two thousand five the United States is reduces show. Two fourteen percent. The Trump administration we have two major regulations in the works that will further reduce CO two. So we're working on that, you know, that we withdrew from the Paris climate accord, but we are actually meeting our Paris climate accord targets better than most of the other industrialized countries. We're doing a lot here in the United States. What we're trying to do is make sure that it's not going to harm our economy and communication. You're the previous EPA administrator sitting very near. Here told me that the role this agency is to protect the environment and business. Do you agree? The well the the mission of our agency is to protect public, health and the environment. And that's what we do. And we do that every day. You know, it's it's public health and the environment and that is our mission. So how do you do that by deregulating? And I assume you were in favor of the president's proposed budget for this fiscal year. Which is a thirty percent reduction. How do you do the things you just described by deregulating which you said is a priority and with thirty percent, less resources. Well, you know, we're we're we're all trying to tighten our belts on the federal government. And that's important for the American public support for the economy, but we can protect the environment at the same time. Perfect example in the derogatory side, we're moving forward with a plan to reduce NOx with the heavy duty diesel trucks on that's something. That's not required by statute. It's not required by court action. But we wanted to do that because that will help non attainment areas in this country, the inner cities reach attainment of the air quality standards at the same time, we're taking two or three old regulations and guidance documents off the books things are outdated. So we're we're trying to do is modernize. I would say deregulation. A lot of that is modernizing our regulations some regulations on the books for twenty thirty forty years. Our agency will turn fifty years old next year, some of our regulations date back to those first years, we need to modernize some of those and that can be deregulation. And I think I heard you say Knox, right, right? Explain why audience what that means nitrous oxides emissions. It's one of the six criteria air airplanes. Okay. When this agency was created the idea was within the cabinet, there'd be all these advocates for business there needed to be one voice. Always for the environment. Is that the way you perceive? This agency's mission. Yes, I do too. Every time the cabinet secretary and say, what is the environment way in this decision. We're making or trying to reach across other agencies. Try not to go up against the other cabinet secretaries. Right. I try to do his work cooperatively with them. And I think we do and we are doing that we work. We're we've started a new program with the with -partment of agriculture on food waste food waste is the largest contributor to the to the landfills around the country, if we can eliminate food going into the landfills, then that will help help the environment, and it will help decrease the number of that we have in the amount of waste went into them. So we're working with USDA on getting food. Check out, you know, reusing it as far as to to food banks and things like that. But also using the food waste for agriculture practices for fertilizer for for feed for for animals, if we can eliminate that food waste that goes a long way to help solve our solid waste problems in the country. You're gonna talk about clean water here in the not too distant future, very soon. Yes, that's an issue in this country. We did a series of reports Baltimore Milwaukee. Newark. Chicago Detroit city's not named Flint also have deep problems with public water, supply and toxins. They're in. Currently. There's no federal law that requires the regulation of water in school systems that goes into school systems is the AP in favor of changing that putting more regulatory control over water that is consumed by students. Well, first of all I wanna make sure the American public understands ninety two percent of the water every day meets all the EPA requirements for safe drinking water, we have. The safest drinking water in the world. We are working to update a number of regulations. One of them is our leading copper rule for which is takes a look at the pipes. The lead pipes that we have around the country as part of that. We're looking at what we can do to require regular testing for schools and daycares. So that we part of that regulation on it comes out later this year. This is regulation that hasn't been updated in over twenty years. And we're updating it for the first time, we're using modern science for trying to see what what are the the best ways of detecting where

But my I took a bit a few things don't really have that much took bad because of basically gonna pack and get back to the Lhasa's who needles, but it has been interesting being here for the last couple of weeks, noting how reconnecting as it were with the story and being amazed at just half you Tesla's. They're just have few electric 'cause they're in-country that is fully developed straight. Traditionally has not been the greenest country in the world because there is just so much coal and stuff and the such, but they grappling with this idea that they really want to reduce the company just like in the US though. There are definitely these very extreme right wing politicians who believe that they should just dig up every. Piece of colon Australia and Cilla overseas and use it here and that climate change is not real. So there is just as bigger forces here as are in the states, but it is in general, I would say a country that is much more interested in the environment, and environmental issues and social responsibility and progressive sort of thought than the United States. And so that's why it's really interesting to see so few electric has. And it brings up the point. Why the why the why and the why is purely I believe market forces Cuza, so expensive here an electric has are just so much more expensive than that that for these reasons that the tesla which comes in, you know, a hundred and fifty two hundred thousand dollars for an s I was looking at model threes expected to coming at the base it around sixty thousand dollars for the lower end versions so significantly significantly higher than the US. This is a problem. So that's a straight which is a pretty rich country. If. If we are really going to change the world to driving renewable energy and having electric cars. Tesla has to get busy with the concept of an electric how that is so much less than the thirty five thousand dollars base version of the model three a number of months ago on was talking to Marcus Brownlee about the idea of trying to get a cat end of the twenty twenty five thousand dollar range, which was three or four years away. But I think it's really important to get penetration into places like a stray with big excise taxes. And and just the fact that you've got to build it in American take it to a straighter ED's expense to then places like Kenya. And Chile where I spent some time the prices have come down Sieg new book and Li in order to really penetrate all of these markets. So tesla has some work to do. We have some work to do so good on the people who can afford Tesla's. That's always been the way it is the. The people who can afford the more expensive ocean first, and then trickle down. But I really think that we need a two hundred plus mile range, tesla, but is in Iran, the twenty thousand dollar margin biggers in a straight birdie. And that is as far as I could tell a pretty long way off, you know, three or four years we're going to get way up and running, and then we're gonna get some more threes at the, and then we need to gigafactory in the southern hemisphere, and then we need to gigafactory and a couple of other continents. There is much much work to be done. But it certainly is possible. And it certainly is needed one of the articles. I was reading walls here is from CSI arro-, so that's sort of governmental, and maybe semi private research organization here in a strata, which has been responsible some for some pre major breakthroughs over the us, for example wifi. See us IRA, and they are really working on the idea of hydrogen as the. Energy transport material. So although with my fun of hydrogen on to-, contests and preps on Alon daily. The idea of hydrogen as a high density, energy storage device is good. If you can I one make the hydrogen at of renewables, unlike in so many places in the US it's made out of things like natural gas and coal which is not so good unless you can then sequester the c o two that comes from that. And I am always very skeptical. When people say we're sequestering the nobody's doing that right now. But if you can make the hydrogen from lots of wind and solar and then use that energy, dense material and export that could be a good thing. So what these people sea Aurora doing thinking? Can we continue to develop the catalysts where we can hydro water where we can use something that in the middle of trailer. For example, we have a ridiculous plethora of and that is sunlight so put up big solar installations in a straighter and mine. And the sun tone it into hodgin transported across the world as a high energy material just like you do with oil gas or anything else and a stranger could become a significant serious next exporter of a renewable resource because one new Boeung your hodgin and turn it into trinity. You're getting no CO two in return. It is a fantastic idea. And I would love to believe that one day the destroyer could basically be taking all of these desert heirs with ridiculous amounts of sunshine, and mining it and turning into a renewable resource like hydrogen. But obviously, you've got to find a way to do that in a way that is practical that can make money, and that you can transport with app things blowing up whenever you have a really high energy transport material like oil gas like hodgin if to find a way to do it. So that it doesn't go Banney bang or burn. But that's what's happening. He in a strata pretty exciting. And also as I I guess somewhat. Philosophic here when you're in Sydney Haba, and it is gorgeous. It is one of the most beautiful harbors in the world. Then you see all the surrounding real estate and businesses, and you think you so well sea level rise goes up a couple of feet because five feet if it goes up ten feet it's going to destroy so many billions preps trillions of dollars with real estate here. So when people say we can't afford to fix this problem when you look around Florida in San Francisco and Sydney, Bangladesh and places all over the world sea-level Roy's is going to destroy so much of that land. It's gonna cruise all of this migration. So it is in best interest both for environmental reasons for humanitarian reasons, and frankly for just cash reasons to not let this get out of control we have to solve this problem. So let's get busy dustless part of the issue electric has a part of the issue. But the it's much bigger than that. I'm looking forward to get home to the US to get back to the studio to give you better audio quality and to expand out Ilham daily of really been thinking about well, what's happening here with this thing where we're going.

"The issue is definitely not coming up with a car design. It is absolutely all about building the production system that you wanna have a good product to build. But that's that's basically the easy part. Then the factories the hard part, then the challenge is like, okay. If we if we create a car factory where the heck of the batteries, and and electric Motors and power Electric's gonna come from. And and that's where we we we need to set. Okay. We'd better build something that's capable of fifty gigawatt hours at least of of sell-out, which at the time we propose to gigafactory. I leave. Total global output for of of lithium ion batteries for all purposes phones, laptops. Cillian cars anything was about thirty hours. Okay. Well, just do the basic math. We need something. We need fifty gig at hours. So. We've have a real big factory. Or does no way. So. And. We're gonna in California. It would have taken just to get the permits. So we both the factory in the mount of time. It would it would have taken to get the permits in California. That's what the gigafactory looked like. Two thousand ten it was basically rocks and bushes. Okay. And now this is what it looks like now. Yeah. So and it's only about a third complete. So this went complete. I think it's about four or five times the size of Pentagon. So it's kind of difficult to appreciate scale. But that that although it's really quite toilets like seventy feet tall. So the volume of it is just mind blowing it takes two hours just to walk around. So. Again, it's work. A tremendously talented team working like crazy like tens of thousands of people to produce this factory. And today it produces more looking than the rest of the world combined. Now, we're also building factory in China, which I'm really excited about as you can see. It's very impressive. Lodge puddle?

Because of extreme challenges with the model three production. We have to basically allocate resources to model three production because otherwise we're gonna die. And and so so basically pretty tight I say. That was a hard one. Twenty eight teen is probably felt like aging five years in one. Honestly, it was really intense. So. Thank thank you for supporting through this difficult, period. Thank you. But. Now that three production is going pretty, well, we're finally allocate engineering attention to the soul roof as well. As the solar retrofit pretty excited about both the solar towel roof, and this whole Redford and power will like part of the reason, we can also could make power we could make sales so allocate sells for the car or to power one was like we've gotta make cars. So then power will sell are basically but twenty nineteen. So we are now going to wrap it up, and then power pack.

"They. Golsen? Hey. Twenty two said that once maybe twice during the show. But please do not keep doing it. Because it's really next transplant. So model y I'm still trying to metabolize it. We're gonna be metabolising it for the next year or so, but I'm one of the clip in here too ill daily as a bonus as an extra as a weekend thing as the J Shen. What Ilana talked about at the event, so many view what the event on YouTube. What's it live? But some of you pure audio files because of work or whatever situation you dealing with. So I'm putting in the audio from Ilham. And the event, and it's interesting as I listen to it as I watch it again, he's dropping some pulls that we haven't talked about yet. And we're gonna get to next week on daily a lot of implications for love stuffy sing. But it's really interesting watching him present this stuff is how awkward he is. How? What's the word? I wanna use. I went to med school with so many people like Elon people so ridiculously smart so awkward in their body. So awkward in their social skills yet true geniuses that went on in my career in change medicine and education did truly remarkable things. And it's hard to be a true genius. And be like socially perfect. And I'm watching Ilan on like seeing some of the people that I went through med school with like, how can you possibly remember that had you diagnose that how did you do that thing as because your brain is functioning at this higher level? And yet the ability to speak to group is very old quid, and I say that so much in Illinois now. This goes a gym is difficult. We want him off the Twitter we need to like control him. But what he's trying to achieve here. What he is achieving here. An acceleration of getting the planet to renewable energy is remarkable. And I think on a daily on token, tesla when to keep coming back to that this vessel may not be perfect. But this vessel in Elon Musk is doing an incredible remarkable, drip. So listen to the audio listen to what he has to say and positive out. I think like me the reality distortion field is real. But he dropped a lot of extra polls that we're going to dive deeper into incoming wakes on talking tests deli in Jim was girls. Here is muddle way Rubio. Yes. Yeah. Well, welcome to the test design studio, we've helped many parts of buildings before you guys all have a really great time tonight. I have never seen so many cameras in my entire life. Hammers everywhere. So we're going to start off by just talking about. How did we get here? What are the things that have led to this day? What are the cars? How did Tessa start out? How did we? You know, where where we ten eleven years ago? What what has happened over that in a meeting time? That a lot of people. They only heard about tesla maybe a year or two ago and. Electric cars. Can I take him for granted? But there was a time. When electric cars seemed very stupid. And it wasn't that long ago. And the that of creating a car company was stupid, of course. And then making an electric car company was stupidity squared. And. So let's let's take a look at the first car we ever made that the tesla roadster. Right. It's a bit small. It's great. It's great. So crazy thing is if back eleven years today, tesla had made one car that car that's Cyril number one of tesla. So that's my car, actually. So. On

"Hey. For your Email on daily this choose day, March twelfth two thousand and nine thousand nine hesitate because I am in Australia, and I'm a little confused by the time change because it is actually choose day much today. Even though this really says tomorrow, which is choose day much twelfth in us and other environments. I've been coming to you from a stray still trying to keep this on time and relevant. But I have to tell you about some things that first of all I noted three Tesla's. So yesterday, I said I've been in mobile and Sydney city's of five million people only tesla road scene was my brothers. I've now seen three four maybe five tesla. So feel good about feel happy. I had not gotten down to one of these Sydney superchargers, but I will try and do that in the next day or two boys. Now, Sydney five million people are drove south to go. See my sister. She lives on the beach. It's shoal haven as the place, and she looks after has a couple of things. She's got the corner store. She's got the Mubarak. Cylinder eggs in the bay. And the the cheese the milk and the stuff you need for your daily life. Right. But she also does animal rescue. So we'll do a house, and I'll get greeted boy to Joey's baby kangaroos the she then went onto feed. And then there was a kookaburra probably heard of kookaburra and the old gum tree, Mary married. King of the Bush's say is an injured kookaburra. She's looking after and she's feeding the injured kookaburra what that's right dead baby mice and their place that sills did baby mice for said rescue areas. I'm just saying it was the full on full ustralian sensation coming to you. Ilan daily cook a bars, you'll get you did mice. You got your baby kangaroos all coming to you Milas. Do some news. That's important first of all late in general, boys girls today or yesterday, your time test, the raise the price of all model S is an Xs and threes by three percent, and he was very quick to point out that doesn't pretend to the thirty five thousand dollars. So that we can. Still say we've actually got the thirty five thousand dollar version. But again, this looks like amateur Al the prices are going up. The prices are going down the prices thirty five thousand for the three. Let's raise prices up all over the place. So I think people reasonably were asking like this looks so amity they dumped the price of the and the and in some countries crash the price of this and the Exxon up problems opposes against like, what are you doing? They sit in another story that we're going to make this totally online business and actually got some criticism, but mostly lots of praise and now they're saying war, hang on a minute. We're not going to go the full Hogue there. There's some really high traffic areas that we're not going to get rid of those stores after all it seems like a lot of this stuff is being done on the fly. And I get it running a company is hard. It's difficult. And this is the first American company in eighty years that hasn't going broke. But they're still looks like this some fundamental issues. And it begs the question is this turnover. At that highest level those executive positions is it. As benign as alone would like us to believe or do they really lack sort of this consistent year after year high level executives that can smooth out some of this decision making or is it basically Ilan has an idea with one or two of leads and less is. And there's nobody there that sort of got a long-term vision of this prior experience that can say, let's smooth this out a little bit for the customer experience. Let's not drop the price one week raise at the next drop at the next week. This just doesn't look good. Now does this mean that I think there's anything fundamentally wrong with tesla right now not from that sort of information? It just seems like they need to get their act together. It looks silly. And looks are important when it comes to stock price. Looks are important even though they had not really fundamental to the bottom line to what's really going on there. So let's do a couple of quick stories. He would go the next one is wait for boys and girls, tesla requires truck hauling trucks and trailers. Mid efforts to optimize model three deliveries. This is from tesla. It's by Simon Alvarez and turns out that tesla just quite a bunch of carriers and trailers by a group out of cold central valley auto transport here in California, and basically that gave him thirteen million dollars with Komen stoke in order to acquire more capacity to drive the model threes around and get them delivered. They've gone from production hill, they still kind of in delivery hill, and there's ongoing service hill the question, I have about this, which is sort of a nondescript nobody really kids kind of a story is why pay for that? In stocked wine. Not in cash is that interesting to anybody else or is that normal. Why would you give away thirteen million dollars worth of stock when you could just go down to the piggy Bank and give them thirteen million dollars worth of cash. So I don't know if that is I red flag, or if that's nothing if that's something happens all the time. It just seems a little funny that if you just want to buy a couple of trucks that you would buy it in stock. And not cash. I mean, they've got a significant amount of cash on hand. I understand they've got a huge amount of did. But thirteen million bucks is like nothing. So please splaine to me what that's about. Thank you very much. Let's do another article from tesla Roddy? And it's also by Simon Alvarez, and it's about gigafactory three, which is in China, as you know, and it's going to produce model threes, and eventually muddle wise, and they've got some financing from various banks in China to build this thing. And theoretically, they can actually stop having production in the second half of this year, which is sort of blowing everybody's mind. Can I do it that fast or be towards the end of the, but you need to have a veteran partner looks like that they've got a battery putting a cold contemporary and pricks technology C A L, and this is a big deal. Obviously, you need a big battery potent as somebody that can come in and build those batteries really false with you at gigafactory, one in Nevada, they've Elvis Panasonic as a partner, but that's a non exclusive agreement. So now in China it looks. They took into this group. And that's important because you want to get these signed sealed delivered and done, and you wanna get the preliminary work because as soon as you can stop delivering the threes and the whys of of these lines you're going to want to do it fussed. The Chinese market is going to be huge. They looking for three thousand cows a week of this line. That is a lot of sills that has a lot of batteries and doing it locally is key. Obviously, you don't want to bring these in from the states, you want to have these things produced in China, and then taken to the gigafactory three and then put into slaves and then put in the cows. And off you go, that's the way to do it. So this appears to be the group we will see. And if I'm Panasonic do. I get upset about that. Do I know that we had a non-exclusive agreement, and we gave you lots of billions of dollars to help we gigafactory one. But do you get a little jealous when your girlfriend is out eyeing the men as it were or vice versa? I don't know the seems a little bit weird to me. But when in China? Use Chinese companies that sounds like is the right thing to do. Now apparently late in general, boys and girls, there is a sick and Easter egg on the website for the mobile y now on this one you've got to do it again ran if you like me, and you just open the browser you don't see much. But if you follow the browsers Java scrip- consoled, you can find to do placeholder with a link that appears to be a reveal video. So people jump on this thing, and it's not actually reveal video. It's actually part of Bethesda game studios, the oldest girl's five sky room. And then there's a whole sequence there that you can go and check out, but I just love these Easter eggs, and I love the fact that people can find them, and I love now that we've been doing this long enough that they are geeks out there that no I'm going to check this script behind the front facing web page. I'm going to change the contrast in this pitcher and see if I can find this thing, I think it's all part of the gamesmanship the fun that alone and the crew have with the tesla geeks. And this is the best pop of tesla in changing the price of the model three and other. Ause by three percent up and down every week, not the best pub, and there's another article here, and it's a being electric, and tesla Roddy and all the main ones saying that there's been some recent surveys a bit, you know, how much you like your tests and all and people still love them. I think they antastic, but the one place where they continue to full Dan is what yes, it is in service, ladies, Newman, boys and girls, it is in service. So although the studies showed that eighty seven percent of respondents minute that they love their vehicles. A slight increase over the last year of eighty five percent only forty two percent of people rated their service center experience as excellent and that's actually down fifty percent from the prior year. So I've said this before it takes a long time, particularly in California. I can't speak for the rest of the country. Takes a long time to get your cast. Serviced and often has to stay longer than you like there are so many threes in Xs an SS in California that the service is enormous bottleneck. They know this. They're trying to improve it. They're trying to get it to the point where they can send out their service vehicles to do them boss majority of the wouk, and he's hoping he said in pro twits that they can get this down to a day. And then hopefully, Dan to a few Alice if you've got a little niggly problem that they can send out the service 'cause very quickly. I've had my house at home many times. And I find the service fantastic. They just come in. That's great. But better and all what's the fastest best way of having service? Not needing service that is the key. So Las lives in general, boys and girls, I'm here instrument or make thousand miles away from my model three and I get the notification on the iphone that there's an update from little three. So I'm like, of course, you can do that update. Thank you very much. Is this the foam where upgrade that gives me three hundred and twenty five miles range over the current three hundred and ten miles Ranchi system. So so he does the update. And then of course, and tell me if I'm wrong, but I can never find on the app what it has updated. I always have to go to the car. To find out. What that update does? Now, I guess could put in the version which is two thousand nineteen point five point four and then for C three C four one four, and I can go look that up and find out exactly what that update is. But I wish it would just be on the app to say. Yep. Finish the update. And here's what you're getting. I always have to go to the care and check it out on the screen there. But a can't do that because I'm going to have to swim across the Pacific Ocean. And it's gonna make me very tub. So I don't know what this update is. But will go look it up later. Nobody really kids legend boys girls the middle y is being revealed on Thursday fourteenth of March, eight PM Pacific time. It will be streaming Tom and Robert will be there. We'll all be watching. I didn't general boys and girls, I couldn't be more excited. My twiddling bits getting old Twitty this is daily and I'll do my best. I'll try very hard to speak you tomorrow. But you never know the full stas and the fish and chips might get me except Voces piss. A rebel?
