"Table and then you still have a few that are lost they wander around and they may run into the wall and they finally find a place to sit and you know they kind of get through but on average is pretty good ACT scores are on average thirty one now the Max is thirty six an average of thirty one that's pretty good you know they're there GDP and IT yeah it there's this other their average scores for their classes in high school it's a four point one we used to be you can get over for in order for an average resident so my skin so some students are four and a half or something yeah I just saw that his office or those data for the department of engineering college college of engineering yes this is engineer the universe is a little bit less than that is just a tad bit before college of engineering we're you know we're getting top students and we're growing I mean so we're bringing this is so it's not that we're getting fewer and fewer of smarter students the students are doing pretty well there's a little bit more we could do to get more since because with there is a short you realize that this is this is said by twenty twenty five of the US of the short on engineers bias of four hundred thousand so who will be out sure a shortage of four thousand engineers in about five years so so there's so we need to find a way to get more students in into the system hello this is I I have to say while I cringe at sometimes the questions they ask I have to say that I'm we're producing some really smart involved again I know we've we've got some Casey cynicism they they really special so I so I I I'm I'm kind of straddling the answer a little bit but I have to admit they're awful smart enough I think it's been a while there's some challenges I think that all in all they benefited from technology five add to that through the car wash mark out of each other a long time we're marking I went through your sicknesses undergraduates we have amazing access to resources and if a student took advantage of those resources this guy was a limit on what they could do the problem is not all students come in with the capability to take advantage of those resources now you know however many years later a lot of years later the access to students for the resources students have access to is just incredible again do I have the largest knowledge the practice and the skill set coming out of K. through twelve to leverage those resources for those that do just fly away and no market I've seen people go from U. G. to cal tech Stanford del Monte and just below the top off of off of things there for the problem and and there's always something this this group that struggle and and hit the walls and there's a group that just flies away there's a little group or maybe the dispersions got larger time and partly possibly the calls of the the gist of wealth of technology and resources that people have access to know whether they're able to leverage a college so I have to say our graduation rates thank you to you for a cause of engineering are the highest in the state and they've improved over time movie we used to as I have less than half the students get through the engineering degree program for one three one through forward for but now we also send through the system and that doesn't mean it's easy so I think we're we're doing pretty good I have to I have to be positive I'm positive about the kids we can do better right has not me we we still got some more work we can do and it's a constant battle because technology doesn't take that into consideration right we didn't take into consideration what social media might do an expose our kids and ourselves to primary he does great great we can all we can share every moment of our life with our friends everything I do I can share with not thinking maybe I shouldn't share something with my maybe we should do that the head okay good answers for time you in your talk you talked about the data bubble yeah and how it's going to be an economic bone I was just wondering is individuals how can we take advantage of and you make Rick and I have been if it is a good question the because you know we as individuals we produce a little bit of data to be honest we don't produce individually that much the benefit is giving your data my dad and everybody else is daisy gather in pulling inside from that yeah if you had enough computing capacity and smart you could you could do that yourself you can because there's a lot of it online there are some companies event that's just kind of happens because of the way they're doing this Amazon no hammers on knows a lot about you in the from the first time you order something from them they know a lot about you and they know a lot about your friends and your neighbors and the people you work with and everything else they can put out that all together now I know a lot and has a lot of value an individual has a tough time doing that right because you still have access to all that so I don't know how you know you know your valuable guy so maybe you could sell your your thinking about it you just call up and say Hey you got you want this date I got so there's a there's a few of us that have been iffy because when we write something down and call the patent we get a little bit from that so there's some data that we can take advantage of I think that the way I think we as individuals can benefit potentially especially the kids can they can do a little programming no they can sit in their bedroom rental application give yourself to somebody for dollar if you get nothing provided for a dollar you come and you come out ahead mark dean of a tool that allows people to gather more information on get more insights or something like that but yeah I think us as individuals eight just a very little amount of data in this probably by itself didn't have a lot of value but in in accumulation I get enough of it then that has a lot of there's a question by behind yes and then we knew because we should stop yeah well as you mentioned four steps to innovation and I was just wondering how in in the curriculum typesetting can you and fuse the important parameter of risks all the other ones you know it seems like a good university they can they can probably get but a risk factor how how can you how can you you know and understand and impart to them that they really need to do that well in engineering it's actually in many cases is easier one thing that I like and the reason I'm in engineering is high building and one thing is that I think university city does pretty well is to give students a chance to build stuff I get an answer you write some code to the piece techno pop technology together you know we have everybody in the college has to do a senior design project at a minimum so that means of building building something within a team so anytime you you build something you're exposed to something happened his vision an engineer you know you love something set something on fire is it is and so one of the lectures that both Doug and I would give is the notion of the do's and don'ts you know the etiquette involved in as your building and testing something out what are the things that you need to do to make sure your site and your partner are saying this is a re airs he's been waiting programming from Thursday one good example is in mechanical engineering they work on electric cars right three hundred fifty volts DC that's a lot for anybody as a lot especially given is direct current because it can burn you up I mean you couldn't get across the connection and it's not a good sign it's it's actually worse than the outlets on one hundred twenty volt AC outlets and so they have to go through some extensive training on safety to make sure that they don't get across that multi right because it is because we don't we don't want them getting into that situation I have to say today we in general I think we don't have one it's where a student has and it's a grad student got into the vault incident it didn't hurt them bad but if they did actually get into so that well where and showing people what could happen because we in one of my classes and our senior design I've got a full day by co he's he does a lot and fire protection and and high voltage circuitry and things of things around that sorry we give a lecture and he would show what would happen if you got into some of these situations you shouldn't be in what what can happen if you if you don't pay attention and follow the rules because people get her and so we tried to help students to be aware of those risks physical risk associated with that now you could argue well what about financial risk our our emotional risk you know of risks that are are less physical and more no less there are more or less transparent you know they can happen to you either emotionally or in other ways financially or otherwise those are these things you have to talk about are you have to have those conversations in class and and help them understand what can happen and so that's engineering has a set of principles that should be followed as you're developing and testing out thanks and if and if you follow those principles you tend to minimize those risks at least in the design now the rest of society if you're trying to do is social follow in fact we also have a lecture modules that cover that as well so I think that I'm I'm actually pretty proud and I have to have a shot out to my colleagues number well I'm pretty proud of that in most of our departments we work to try to expose the students to those soft skills those skills that are not driven by raw technology that outside of physics chemistry and biology Alistair here the skills of ethics right the skills of communication skills of of being able to interact those are important skills if if students have the technical skills and they can explain to you the pros and cons of the technology their differences are those are the ones you want right everybody can design this which is but if I can explain to my mother and she gets it now that person is a little bit more value right they can go out and be the leaders right and so we try to give them some of some of those soft skills as well just to make sure they can try to understand the risks so you know I I I appreciate you giving me this time I appreciate you coming out on this yesterday Mr drive that is right so thank you thank you guys mark

"Technology. A lot of kind of philosophy and theory was very big. This was in the nineties. I taught for them in the Engineering College College for a few years I taught place down in Woods Hole Massachusetts Maritime Program. I I was curator over in London. I was curator of the transportation collections for the Science Museum and it's interesting thing just briefly we we had I believe it was the second or third of the Benz Patent Motor Wagons. There and Ben's wanted us to lend it to them so they could build a replica. You know I was naive at the time and I said Oh sure and my boss said yeah that that car is never leaving the country. That car is not going to Germany because we'll never get it back that they really felt like you know they had they had gotten something in having this car. Did you lend some of those cars. I think I've seen a top tier production about early cars and I remember saying some really exotic <hes> still running examples the G._n._c. with top gear guys about that we did have a top gear guys in and looking at the collection but we never ran anything and that was one of my biggest frustrations and I would argue with the Conservatives about this. They have a whole philosophy of keeping machines as perfect and as original as possible possible and my feeling maybe you agree. Is that was cars. If they're not running then you're not really looking at the object so you ever take any out behind the museum at night and to get around now and in fact one of the problems was the guy who <hes> I came in behind. He had run the Brighton run the so-called emancipation run in which was originally I think eighteen ninety six was the first one and he had taken one of the museums ziems cars and basically ran the wheels off wrecked it so that was that was the last time they'd let anybody drive anything but yeah that I know well don't get me started but <hes> yeah ruined tailwind the party for everyone so yeah I did that and then I was teaching history here it at Salem State University and I kind of burnt out on teaching and I'd just been writing do some business writing and a a lot of <hes> right for journal any or called N plus one and I do. They call me their car correspondent which is just almost a joke because you know they're a bunch of Brooklyn heights and none of them own cars so another dedicate tea is is <hes> the Saab that was destroyed by. I believe it's one of your partners at the maggots that's right. He was the founding editor one of the founding editors event plus one is a guy named Keith guests and he's a journalism professor at Columbia University and and <hes> you know it's funny. I'm on your podcast because one of my cars I'm I'm sort of where I am today because of Assab and eighty five Saab nine hundred that <hes> I may have sold it to them for a dollar but essentially gave it to him and Abuna then he asked me to write for his his newborn magazine and you know the rest is history. I WANNA point out that what the book as I as I see it is really much more about the the cultural and the emotional connections Americans have I trained in business and engineering so I tend to look at production methods business models. <hes> technologies adoptions a lot. Some of these are influenced by obviously culture but we tend to I tend to at least make it make it much more a question of did the pieces come together to the technologies and <hes> and.

"She didn't like the old black vinyl and i'll stop which way the way original it had been out now not at all and not badly i must insist that it was by the previous owner that was not me i figured that i figured so what anyway long story i'm trying to be as short as i can't dance sold me this car he did a great job with original conversion it's a labor of love i love the car i that's even though it hasn't been risen since although it is as i said functional it has given me so much it has allowed me to talk about electric cars with a the of <hes> let's say credibility because i sit well by the way i built i built my own <hes> and also to talk about car history because i have a car alludes a seventy one was originally designed in in the thirties or even earlier and and you got to you know once you get in and i i have these conversations conversations automotive people all the way up to you know fairly high level executives and i mentioned to them oh sure i own electric car and i do actually have another one <hes> i have an i three it'd be end of the i three is kind of a a regular electric car but i have to like a car is one that i bought and one that i built and people are floored and think it's fantastic so i gotta say it's paid off dividends it's a great great experience i still hoping to finish it off and make it really really a beautiful example that people can can conceal the road but it's it's just now in pause while i find time again i actually time is i need to find a garage to do it 'cause my friend's garage where i started doing it he sold the house and and so i had to take the new owners don't let you come over and work on it whenever we believe exactly you know people are like that Long Intro so I I've got a copy of the book here. This is in fact. Are we there yet by <hes> which came out just just a month ago is correct <hes> June excellent excellent <hes> and this is in fact the car in question that horace ripped away from from your family is is is one of the dedicate ts in the book is a C- <hes> right. You're absolutely right eventually model T. as well heck. Did you do anything good bad. It's one of these you know. I had a book to finish and now I keep thinking about it but I'm also looking for a nineteen forty nine Nash. If any of your listeners are looking for a jump to sell there's two <hes> I'm really interested in <hes> something like that. I WANNA do a cross country trip in something very old what it is about the Nash that is so telling you so. There's a couple of things one is there was this period right after World War Two <hes> reconversion version where <hes> these small independent companies like Nash Studebaker and even Willis had a chance to set the styling for the postwar era because Ford and Chrysler and G._M.. Were so big megan to producing war materiel that they took a while to get get going again and so for a couple of years up until nineteen fifty these companies had some very interesting very innovative cars the Nash I love particularly also because it was a huge airplane <hes> component to styling and even construction in that period and one of the things I love is called the unit scope and it just looks like a nasal bill from a jet plane and it's right there on the steering column and that's where all your gauges and whatnot on. I think that's gorgeous so I want one of them but before we go can thank you tell us about your background. Is I remember you said you were teaching at a time and you're you're by on the book is is <hes> is not very well. There's not much at all in history and ki tells more what you're what you've been doing right well yeah P._H._d.. In History University of Michigan and when I was there I did a lot of studying of <hes> history technology sociology of Technology. A lot of kind of philosophy and theory was very big. This was in the nineties. I taught for them in the Engineering College College for a few years I taught.
