"To part two of our Ethan Allen topic because he did many crazy things that people don't seem to know about the first part of the story. He talked about his origins. How he came to lead a militia group called the Green Mountain Boys who first reformed to go after Yorkers short for New Yorkers in territory disputes in the New Hampshire grants. New Hampshire grants being what is modern Day Vermont and how then this group of the Green Mountain Boys went on to serve the colonists in the American Revolution in an effort to bring favor to their desire to make Vermont an independent state. And after taking forts Lake Champlain from the British with his green Mountain boys and additional troops headed by Benedict Arnold. Ethan, who had been voted out as leader of the Green Mountain militia was still ready to fight on behalf of the colonies, and so he had volunteered to take part in an initiative to push the fighting up in the Canada. After the successes at Ticonderoga and Crown Point Alan really saw a clear path to move north and he made his way toward the north end of Lake Champlain. Having gotten tired of waiting on some kind of decisive movement, and having never gotten an official commission to make any battle plans, he decided that the next target should be Montreal. Yeah, I think we should be clear that Ethan Allen decided if there had been some discussion about it prior to that, But he really kind of took matters into his own hands because he was certainly a determined on confident, gentlemen. Just a few weeks after he had led the troops that took Ticonderoga and Crown Point forts, Allen began recruiting native Americans and even embittered Canadians to join him in this little plan. And so between June and September, he amassed his troops and he laid out sort of a battle plan. And this endeavor I feel we should point out was entirely foolhardy for a number of reasons, Aside from the fact that he was just kind of doing this of his own initiative. Montreal New what Alan was planning. He had not been secretive enough in his efforts to recruit people. And so word had gotten to Montreal that he was planning something and even though he had recruited a lot of these men Not all of them were really on board with his invasion plan, so it was really just beset by problems. Consequently, when he forged ahead into Montreal on September 25th things did not go well. So, as we said they knew he was coming, and this plan was more impulsive than strategic. He thought that backup was going to come to assist him. But it never came. Ah, lot of his recruits deserted and the whole thing just went so poorly that Ethan was very easily captured. Yeah, it's a certain level of turnabout. He so easily took the forts of Ticonderoga and Crown point. Then, when he tried this more ambitious plan, it really fell apart. He was the one that was easily taken. Because he was charged as a traitor to the British crown. Initially, he was shipped back to England for trial on Ethan Allen actually wrote of his time is a captive after the fact and these writings were used as war propaganda. In a passage from his work a narrative of colonel Ethan Allen's captivity. He describes attempting to negotiate a sort of kindness and fair treatment with his captors and the manner in which he was forced to respond to the poor treatment that he received. So this is what he wrote. A reader is now invited back to the time I was put into irons. I requested the privilege to write to General Prescott, which was granted I reminded him of the kind and generous manner of my treatment to the prisoners. I took a Ticonderoga and of the injustice and a Ndjeng tle men like usage, which I had met with from him. And demanded gentlemen like usage but received no answer from him. I soon after route to General Carleton, which met the same success. In the meanwhile many of theirs who were permitted to see me were very insulting. I was confined in the manor I have related onboard the schooner gasp! Ooh, about six weeks. During which I was obliged to throw out plenty of extravagant language, which answered certain purposes at that time, better than to grace a history. So basically he Ah did a lot of swearing, profanity and yelling which I personally am going to call extravagant language going forward in my life because it sounds so nice rather than to admit that I threw a tantrum. Ah Ah, and he just felt like you know what in the time that's what was needed, and I told them off because I tried to be nice, and they wouldn't acknowledge that And I really love this passage because it's sort of very quickly encapsulates. This fiery part of.

"We are now back with our guests and we have a little bit of time to talk with Ben Edgeley Washer the public interest research group in Santa Lavine Conservation Law Foundation and they have already been spending some time at the State House. I believe this Legislative Session to get launched. These two initiatives down there one of them as to is called the transportation and climate initiative. And that is We're GONNA find out a little bit about that and why that is important and so on the other. One is global warming solution actor. I think the two are closely related. But we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA put them together out see how they mix and match and all that sort of good stuff so let me start in if it could with you Sandra and just ask you Talk to us Maybe maybe give people a reef definition of what these two measures. Here's our trying to do. In Montpellier sure I'll start with the global warming Solutions Act and first of all. I'm going to start with the excitement this year at the legislature on climate change. There's been been a lot of really positive energy to legislators have come in our in our excited to get some work done on climate. Change the students who came in last week. And just I. There's A. There's a buzz in the State House on climate. Change this year which is great I think we're we're there really poised to get some work done. I and the global warming solutions. ACT IT. It it's a key framework A policy that would put in place a requirements. We've had goals now for a number of years to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and we fallen short year after year after year. We fall short and we're now thirteen Thirteen percent and above cl climate emissions from nineteen ninety instead of moving in a downward In a downward way so what if fundamentally what what this would do is it would make The goals that we already have in place to reduce greenhouse gas emissions requirements. And then it sets a path forward for how. We're actually going to get that done. It has a climate council that is responsible for putting forward a plan. The Agency of natural resources will take that plan. Put those into regulations so that by twenty twenty and twenty twenty five and twenty thirty we will actually meet our greenhouse gas reduction requirements and and it follows on Successful legislation in other states from Massachusetts to Maine just passed last year in New York recently as well so it's is not Vermont. Go going out alone. Vermont following and standing shoulder to shoulder with our neighbors to make sure that we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and can move move move forward to reap the benefits of cleaner economy of lower cost energy solutions and being more prepared in terms of resilience the ants and and solutions going forward so the the climate change I'm sorry global warming Solutions Act. which is what are what are its actual actual provisions? I mean give me a sort of chapter by chapter break down here of what. What does it do early? You know the top two or three things. I don't know if we can read the entire bill air here between now in eleven o'clock the headlines for half an hour we could probably read through it in that time it fundamentally it takes the the goals that we have in place now oh To reduce you know twenty six percent below Two thousand five emissions by twenty twenty five and forty percent by twenty thirty and eighty percent sent by twenty fifty and then with a provision as well to get to net zero goals and it makes the mandates correct yes and that would give your your group and others the power to sue the state of Vermont if it weren't meaning those mandates at that time right. It's not that it is power to sue that meet the mandates it. Obviously the the goals that we've had in place in the past have not been sufficient You know if anyone's ever been on a diet sometimes the goals you have a little hard to meet so you need a little push to get you over there to get you cross the finish line. And that's what this does it sets these requirements and Says that the there the the The climate plan climate council will will put forward a plan and have requirements in the Agency of natural resources will Follow through with regulations agents they requirements or a deadline. They have deadlines in place similar to other environmental laws have deadlines and if those deadlines are met You know their feet can be held to the fire. We'll make sure that it gets done. Bottom line is we will meet our greenhouse gas reduction requirements in a way that is helpful to our economy and helpful to our health often helpful to the future of Vermont so to use your Diet. Analogy you go to your annual physical with your doctorate new doctors. You know you really ought to lose twenty pounds right come back the next year year. Ten pounds heavier. I mean that's basically where we are with stuff right now right. That's exactly where we are with this now. And so. How realistic is it to think that down? You know annual physical over to here now. The goal is to lose thirty pounds. I guess I mean what are we. What are we doing? And how are we gonNA get there man. Let me ask you that question. Uh thanks Dave. So one thing that's really important to know. Is that the global warming Solutions Act as being promoted in the State House and by organizations as part of a much more comprehensive climate platform that includes actually four piece of legislation. Not just the two that you described earlier we can get into all of that but it's really important important to know that while the global warming Solutions Act is going to be putting in place a strategic and accountability framework and the plan for how we get to each of the goals the targets that sandy described it also is going to be part of this comprehensive package. That actually is going to put the resources into do that. Plan and the actions that we need to take in order to ensure that we are being put on Track for success. And that's the the last thing that I I WANNA know before I turn it back over to Sandy. Is everyone involved in. This conversation is interested in setting the state up for success. This is about giving the state the authority the responsibility the tools to actually achieve the targets that everyone from the governor on down says they support so to date. We have not had either a plan nor the tools to do that. And if we pass this comprehensive platform of climate legislation this year we will have both the goals and the plan and the actual tools to achieve those goals. We have a listener on the line. Fred is calling in from Newburgh. Fred are.

"Our second hour of the Dave Graham. Show here on W. Devi the and I wanted to just mention that right now. Apparently there's a news conference going on in Washington relating to the appointment of house impeachment managers to send over to the Senate with the articles of impeachment that the house is expected to vote and Go ahead and move those over to the Senate after a delay in which Speaker Nancy Pelosi he was trying to press the Senate for terms of maybe That you considered a little more fair so onto the house Prosecution of of this impeachment and the Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell was pretty much able to hold off on a lot of what the speaker wanted but The process apparently early the logjams breaking the House has to go ahead and send any articles over the houses in point appointing managers and we'll see what unfolds on the impeachment front in the coming weeks expected. Expect to be a three to five week process or so So lots of stuff to watch their including its impact on the presidential primaries which are obviously also about to unfold The the caucus I should say I will end the New Hampshire primary first off about to unfold. Maybe right in the middle of when the Senate is holding this trial And thereby tying up some of the leading candidates including people like Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders. Amy Clo- which are the they are. I think it'd have to Do some scrambling to figure out how much time I spend an Iowa when I was supposed to be a juror at this impeachment trial back in Washington. So that's GONNA be interesting to watch and speaking of the politics. We actually have someone who could comment. I think in some To some degree to a great degree I hope I think that Steve Futterman. CBS News he was watching the debate last night. Very carefully and learning about how all breaking down for the candidates. Steve Are you with me. I'm with you I'll try and you do a great degree okay. Excellent tell us. Tell us your your sense of The winners and the losers last night whether any clear winners and losers the debate I I don't really think so I think Joe Biden wins because there were no big problems for him he is still using someone who just wants to get five five. These debates the thing we were all watching for last night entering the debate was was Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren say about this alleged comic made he by Bernie Sanders in twenty eighteen Elizabeth. Warren says he told her back and the woman he could not win the White House this year. So as we expected Bernie he's centers. I asked about it as expected. We he denied it categorically. We weren't sort of expecting the next question to be to Elizabeth Warren. Well he say it just just after reiterated but for some reason the moderator said to her unusual choice of questioning She said she. Whoa Whoa what did you think when Senator Sanders said this to sort of implying that Sanders was a known fact that he said it to her so that was a bit awkward. But I I don't think either of them were expecting to make this into a big thing that would last more than a few minutes. It did not even turn into a spats Bernie. Sanders said he didn't say it's Elizabeth Elizabeth. Warren says essentially confirmed that he did and said she has more. I get into a fight with him so we moved on from there. I theory about this if I run a by sheriff he yeah I I think I think that I I've I was longtime. AP reported here in Vermont. I've known Bernie Sanders for about thirty five years and he ended the idea that he would say this to Elizabeth Warren even in a private conversation just doesn't sound like Bernie Sanders. I mean it just doesn't sound like what he thinks or or and is he pointed out he said and you know Hillary Clinton got more votes than Donald Trump and twenty sixteen. What do you mean anybody thinks that a woman can't get elected And and so again I just I don't. He's a very practical guy. And even if veep thought you know it's a deep dark thoughts about this or something I I don't think he would say something kind of that inaccurate about the political scene but So so let's assume for the moment that Elizabeth Warren total lie here I actually think that she was a strategic foul. If that's the case it was kind of like Layton enlighten a basketball game when one team. You know you're the announcers go. They've got to follow. You've gotTA follow so they committed file And they hope the other the other you know the a person who is fouled will miss the foul shots and then they hit a three. I think last night when she made that speech about yes a woman can run for president and you know the women here one all of our elections and all of that stuff. That was kind of three pointer that was it was a big score for her and I think it works. But that's just my my my sense of the situation. And what are your thoughts. There there are many people who agrees completely with you that they've the Monday when all this happened when the leaks sort of began Suzanne Jesse in that Bernie Sanders said this that this was all a strategic move by the Warren Campaign. Remember they are essentially going after the same voters. There's Yup not exactly the same but essentially the same voters if you vote for Sanders you're probably like vote for warn. You probably like Sanders. So let's say it's a tight race and let's say this may be motivates. Maybe women citzens off women away from Bernie Sanders into the Elizabeth Warren Camp. Well again. This is not There was no coach that Oklahoma state who wants talked about its division one football. This is not intermurals. While presidential race is Division One. That's not intramurals. This is tough stuff. These are big boys and big girls and they want to win and yes you may be things that are not marcus of fleeing sperry very rules but You WanNa win. You sometimes do things that maybe in a perfect world. You wouldn't do so if that theory is correct. This sort of fits in. Yeah I I suspected and again I think it was a winning move for her. I mean not necessarily that that calls you the primary election or even the results in Iowa or whatever but I think she she did score points in the overall process here and so You know you kind of have the Hannah tour at some extent And we'll you know again. We'll we'll see how it plays out in in the voting. I my sense is that a lot of A lot of democratic voters are especially in the Warren in Sanders. End of the spectrum are are pretty zeroed in on which they prefer already. I don't know about If shopping let's say between Biden enclosure or something maybe there's less kind of fervent fervent fervent among among their voters. But my sense is that they can again also one of the other reasons. If in fact this theory is correct. This was a strategic move. You make sure that Bernie Sanders doesn't mess up you. You put him in jeopardy. I think he handled it. Okay last night no one saying saying Oh my God why did Bernie Sanders say that he was strong. He denied it. He's tonight. It's strongly so did not mess it up but again The always that possibility that he would messed up and he didn't so you take that chance And again I don't think it's going to be determinative. I don't think they've already third. We're going if you go back and say oh. My goodness all changed on that Monday night. Elizabeth Warren we'll be set statement. I mean it could. I just don't think this is going much farther. It's already gone if she picks up a bit. She has if she doesn't have nothing. No harm no foul pretty much. Yeah I agree with you there. I think actually some of the coverage bridge of this has been a little breathless compared to its real significance which is not that great after all so I mean but we do jump on things like that and it wasn't news nuggets around around four hours. Yeah I think it goes away unless there's something more to it and there's no indication right now there's anything more to it. Impact remember. That was worn one made the statement she said he said. But I wanNA talk about it. Let's move on. Yeah paraphrasing here. Yeah she's already even WanNa do she's already trying to get past it. And certainly there's no There's no capital for him to gain and continuing to pursue it so I think both of them are going to say again and to me. It just feels like it feels like a foul late in the basketball all game and these things happen and yeah it's not as you say Marcus Queensberry or whatever but but it's a it's a tough game and people are trying to win and and here's a strategy. Did that can help you. And and and again I think I think the bottom line years you know a three-pointer for war so there you go. We have a caller on the line. Do you mind if we take a call here. Let's go to Roger. Lebron Worcester wrote. What's your question we're address? Yeah I just like to convey my My dissatisfaction of the mainstream press and how they treat Bernie Sanders. I think he's treated extremely unfair. In fact I would say. Hey Dr is probably pretty constant By you know for my view a million miles away here I've seen a lot of campaigns. I've seen how this thing we know. We know Bernie Sanders up very no but this is just garbage about him. Not Thinking a woman could win the presidency. So it's really preposterous from from the people who actually know. Oh him but I would like to ask you In the mainstream press. And you know I don't WanNa be like a basher of the mainstream press but Jeez you know there's unfairness fairness going on here. And I hope this is heard in New Hampshire. I really do and I know there's a lot of people who are really upset just like I am about this watching this from afar. My question question to you is. Are you guys gonNA try to treat everybody fairly just give everybody a fair shake. Are you guys You know here's my opinion on this whole thing. Basically you're the mainstream press in general can't be proved sure looks like they're trying to elect Joe Biden. They're trying to elect maybe Buddha judge or closure and they're trying to Warren and Bernie into a big fight and this is how it looks from a million miles away and and I hope you convey that to your folks down in DC. If you have the chance because we're watching you guys. Like Roger. I get your point I wanna I WANNA get give Stephen chance to respond respond. Here's Steve You have any thoughts you'd like to share all this but I'm not gonNA take it personally. I don't know if he was aiming which me but let me tell you. As far as I'm concerned basically what I do I just report what they say. Just give them the facts and when Elizabeth Warren came out with that statement on Monday night we reported what she said we we immediately reported what Bernie Sanders said. His people issued a statement. Very playcalling allegations ludicrous. I reported that immediately and pretty much what was it. Today is the Sanders denial. We're not really talking much about what Elizabeth Warren said. Because she didn't say that much now I understand when you have have a a dog in the fight I think everyone you know I follow sports teams. I don't like when something is said that about the team I like even if it's true so I I don't think there was a conspiracy against Bernie Sanders again. I hope you're not confusing. The opinion talkers. That people who do have have opinions with the straight news reporters. I'm a straight news reporter. I sure hope you're not finding anything. Bias in my report. Says I will guarantee you. There's nothing that they are. It's that you should shoot interprets. Fires and I can only plead. My case has for your mercy if you listen to all right well Rogers I think already already gone off off the area but I I appreciate that. Response Steve Futterman. I'm GonNa let you go because we've kept you a little long already and I and I appreciate you use standing there and taking the heat so it's okay. We understand that I understand. Listen there many people listen and this one's on both sides of the aisle that's Bernie Sanders reported. We have people who support president. Trump will also have an agenda again. I think it's important for listeners viewers to know there is a difference between the sweet knees with this someone like myself. And then you'll have the opinion makers on MSNBC. Have lots like Rachel maddow. She gives opinions on the on the Fox Sean. Renting he gives opinions. We are different from them if you hear US making comments like that. There's a problem but I don't think he will that much from this guy's source of all right right. Well Steve Futterman CBS News. Thank you so much for joining us. This morning we'll talk soon already. let's go to a caller. We have Forbes from current on the line Good Morning Forbes morning how are you. Good right I've got a question for you and you can try to analyze it for me Last evening I'm listening to the radio and four four different press releases or announcements came across and what they said is trump agrees stories with Bernie Sanders and they stopped.

Louis ask you wait. I'm trying to understand you. So you were actually what getting pulled over by like the DMV officials or we would breakdown o breakdown would be mechanical failure in these in these in these in these upgraded engines Zor upgraded from the point of view.

Burn it up in in place you know in the filter and it would just problem after problem after problem to appoint a small operator that I have all gotten out of the larger bus transportation business. 'cause I just couldn't stay in it anymore so bad and it rendered those relatively new vehicles absolutely worthless in the market. I I couldn't get a guy to come up here for Massachusetts chooses to tow them to the scrap yard. Wow that's that's hopefully so. Hopefully your guest. I saw that on the news yesterday and it said four engine and they said well. That's good 'cause you'll have two or three to get back to shore but it sounds like two or generator engines. were to a running so I hopefully. The Marine engines are are better technology than they've had on the road and they've they've fixed a lot of sense then but the expense and the and the frustrations that that came to that Were insurmountable to to to continue to operate for a small operator and even the big operators they were just a safety in numbers where they could you know when Airbus quit and and stopped. You know with a busload of kids to twenty below zero. They would you know it's you would just send one as quick as you could go get him off the road and get them to school or back home. Yeah wow well. I'm sorry about your experience there. Let's let's take service managers managers and dealerships. That changed professions. That was so bad. I think they were getting death. Threats on that and that is that is literal right from owners vehicle owners and stuff. Yeah Yeah Right. People trying to make a living was with significant investment vehicles. Well Wade thank you for the call perspective and again the summer. All right. Okay thanks well let me let me ask my guess. WanNa take a swing at this These mechanical worries and And how how. Well have the been resolved so far. Hi Yes I. I have heard that. The earlier generation of the technology eh the diesel particulate filters From two thousand seven through maybe two thousand ten model years here's In in two thousand ten I believe they were also including selective catalytic reduction ESI are. That's why a lot of trucks have to add the diesel emission fluid the fluid I did hear that they early on there. Were a lot of problems and hiccups in bugs to be worked data the system but I have heard that the majority of them have been worked out. And let me ask the purchaser of this new equipment these new engines Mike Mike Shea of The spirit of Ethan Allen. How confident are you that you're going to have smoothly operating a ship this summer? I'm very comfortable right next. Door are great neighbors. Burs A. Longtime Company oldest up boat operators Lake Lake champlain transportation or on the ferries they run. We're getting caterpillar engines and It was on their advice Their suggestion because they've had such great success with their engines that we got these Caterpillars plus there there is a Dealer right here in Richmond Milton Caterpillar Milton cat and so we've got an right nearby service department. So I'm I'm very comfortable. These are very very well Recommended by other boat operators also And did have their as there have been a better a better S- Service record four and performance record really for these engines in marine applications than on the road applications. You know. Honestly I'm I'm not that familiar with marine applications versus will lose we a I have a runner. What are the what is lake? Champlain transportation use for their engines They they use. It's pretty much all caterpillars and Back in When the bad economy was going on there was some funds that they've got some deer refunds also? Oh about ten years ago and they converted either with one of the one or two of their votes. Were had older technology that we're polluting. And they took the time in and spent their money to get the new engine on airboats and Mike. I'm wondering you SORTA customer reaction you want returning guests. You know people eh recommend it to their friends and so on have the have the existing engines in you. You're talking about the black smoke and the smell and so on happened in issuing if people actually gotten off the boat complaining to you or anything or is that not really that big a deal so far some people say it and you know the majority say nothing but I'm sure they formed their own opinions and thought about got it so we're doing something about it. Yeah and I mean I gather that it works on many layers not only in terms of kind of your own conscience about your environmental normal impact zone but also if you make your customers happier that's what any any business person wants to do APP absolutely especially for us in the tourism industry which is one of the major three industries in the state of Vermont We've got a good cooperation with the state. NECE- PA program to to it only enhances a tourism now deirdre go back to the grant program for America kind of curious to know where it might go from here. I mean it sounds like a real a really unique project to take this I think you're the are you the only sort of cruise boat Mike on on the lake. Yes now we are okay and So this is a pretty unique business in Vermont and obviously Your Job Deirdre is to try to reduce These Lee missions and so on Across the board every anywhere you can find an opportunity like this to do so and I'm wondering What other what give me do you? Are there other examples of past grants going out on and maybe a couple of other projects if you could describe or or what's next down the list of people who are applying yeah The grant opportunity is open to a wide ride variety of eligible vehicles and equipment such as You know buses locomotives heavy. Duty Trucks Marine engines engines non road engines equipment vehicles that are used in construction agriculture and In the past we've Helped to fund the early replacement of older heavily polluting school buses we've partnered with municipalities to replace vacuum trucks or back Os and we've partnered with the multiple Rail Railways in Vermont To install it'll reduction technology on the local locomotives and we also partnered with local. Construction companies beverage distributors distributing companies to replace their trucks and equipment and so there there is a wide variety of opportunity. It sounds like you have a list. Is there a lot of which I probably wouldn't even thought of. Obviously your your. This is your work so it would make sense that you would have the ability to come in here and identify some of these other projects objects around the state either which have done or pending or maybe some of them have done more of a similar type for coming and I'm wondering You know overall is there any sort of total for which you can say. This program has reduced diesel emissions in Vermont by x in y number of you yes So we've been receiving funding from the EPA annually. Since two thousand eight we've spent more than Provided more than three million dollars in grants to schools municipalities and businesses and we have Reduced I An estimated two hundred ninety tons of nitrogen oxide emissions fourteen tons of particulate matter our ten tons of hydrocarbons ninety seven tons of carbon monoxide and more than seventy six hundred tonnes of carbon dioxide. Wow that's quite a record. Well well congratulations on that. We were at about the top of the hour upcoming in the end of this segment. I want to thank my guest very much near drug ruseler of the Richler of the Ritzy Ritzy I'm GonNa get this right eventually. Deer give richer of the Vermont.

So in terms of how the synergy happened between the State Agency and your your company Kind of who thought thought it up came to whom I well ironic. I call Deirdre and I was already on her list. She know about me and so we just formed a relationship unshipped. She kept her aware. I applied nationally and Came in fourth out of three people. Three people got to grant. I was number four data around and I was number one so it was is being persistent knowing that he was going to cost me a lot of money because I could get forty percent finding but I had to come up with a sixty percent but I knew it was worthwhile. How long have you been trying two years two years okay? Hey we have a caller on the listener on the line calling in. I should say and that is wade from correct. Good Morning Good Morning. Good morning to your guests and Both guests actually so So yes I've I've have used the Ethan Allen several times I've I've taken busloads of people to the Ethan Allen and it's always been then pleasurable experience Often on the water to get in and out of there and congratulations on your new Your grant get your diesel conversion but I was in the transportation business and still am a little bit and we we experienced a couple of phases of diesel particulate filtration systems that were mandated federally to go onto our diesel buses quitting school buses heavy over.

"We're back in my guests I'm GonNa let them get settled here in the studio a little bit with the headphones and ready to go. Talk to Talk to us about a very interesting announcement this week. I saw that the State of Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation has made a rather large large grant to the To the spirit of Ethan Allen Khruschev company which which operates on Lake Champlain. And the purpose of the grant is to allow the spirit of Ethan Ethan Allen to be outfitted from what I understand with new and more efficient cleaner burning engines much better for the environment for four the carbon even footprint of of this cruise ship company. And we're GONNA find out all about it from the Owner of the Cruise Ship Company Might Shea joins me in the studio this morning. Mike thanks for joining us. You're welcome thank you for having US and dear Deirdre. Richer of the Department of Environmental Conservation also joins us this morning in the studio in D.. Thank you for coming opened by thank you. It's nice to be here and so let me find out a little bit about this. I was quite intrigued because We actually at the At the second in the second hour of the program today we're going to be talking with a couple of advocates. Working Montpellier on issues related to the environment and the climate and all that sort of thing Ben Israeli early wash out the Vermont Public Interest Research Group will become via long with Sandra Levin of the Conservation Law Foundation and those two groups have been very active on climate issues and environmental environmental issues for years. Have sued the state occasionally and so on and so forth. We're going to be finding out a little a little bit about their hopes for some pretty Pretty major environmental title and climate related legislation. That they're backing in the legislature this year and all of that theory in politics lawmaking and stuff aside is occasionally like to get folks on our air here. We're actually out there doing the real work on the on the ground and trying to make make specific changes in the way in the way things operate and in fact our our environment I've told young people that It won't be the environmental Environmental Studies Major Major. Who Will Save the world that would probably be the plumbers and electricians in the solar installers and and maybe the boat captains will find out a little bit about Boat captains from from Mike Shea. Here so Mike Talk to me. A little bit about The spirit of Ethan Allen as a cruise ship company you oppor. You're not offering this time of year. I don't think no oh nationally. We have vice but this year because it's warm. We have no ice but we shut down. We kind of go from tax day to. Halloween is kind of what we say. Tax Data Halloween so sort of horrifying on both thins frightening. Yes writing or something like that. Yeah there we go okay. So starting April ending at the end of October and In a quiet in the wintertime. How many boats do you have? Well along the way we've had four and three of them were cruise boat was an overnight cruise boat but wrong timing annette with the bad economy. But right now we just have the spirit of eastbound tree which three hundred sixty three triple deck passenger boat. Okay and so you have one boat right now and it runs and during the warmer months How many how many times a day would you set it out? normal it's Four scenic cruises an hour and a half and dinner and sunset cruise and evening a two and a half hours. Okay so there's three hour cruise in keeping with the Gillan Gillian's island tune or anything. No but we've had that theme played on that boat many times. I've been on this fear of Ethan Allen. I will say it's a lot of fun I've enjoyed and it's such a beautiful. You look at the at the adirondacks back at camel's Hump and I mean the whole thing is just it's pretty. It's a pretty spectacular experience with those haven't tried it. I recommend it and and Do you ever richer you are with the State Agency Sorry well agency. Does he have natural resources. But the Department of Environmental Conservation which is one of anr's constituent departments and You are actually Overseeing I would gather these These grants that go out to specific applications like these new engines for the spirit of Ethan Allen. Talk me a little bit about the grant program. How much is this budget? The overall in how many how many recipients are they going to be this year or whatever. Period of time applies here so our grant program receives funding. I'm from the United States Environmental Protection Agency under the Diesel Emission Reduction Act So each year we do apply for that grant from the EPA EPA They provided to assist states with developing their diesel emission reduction programs. And this year. We did Somewhere in the neighborhood of three hundred thousand dollars but each year it does change In recent years whereas we've received anywhere from seventy five hundred seventy five thousand dollars all the way up to about three hundred thousand dollars In it is dependent on the federal budget and interested in me because it looks like this year anyway. The bulk of the grant money that came down from the hey goes to this one grant. It's two hundred. What's the number two hundred and sixty eight thousand dollars so that is pretty much all of that? Three hundred thousand dollars shot at capital from the going going to the spirit of Isao Ethan Allen Company to upgrade its engines and Mike Shea with a spirit of Ethan Allen is that cover your all of your your costs are was at two. Or How's that work. No the way to grant works with me. is a fake Covers forty percent of the cost. The total cost is somewhere in a range between six hundred fifteen seven hundred thousand which being seasonal business. We could never afford that amount of money. Wow that is a lot of money. We're talking about two new diesel engines. No we're talking for diesel engines two main engines and two generators okay And the the new engines are Are Cleaner burning. We'll get to that in a moment. Actually I I I WANNA find out about about About diesel as a pollutant in and of itself in the last last year about that How does how does it compare to say gasoline or other other other possible methods of moving vote around that is a good question? reducing diesel emissions ends is One of our greater air quality challenges because diesel engines are so durable in even as emission standards for are diesel engines become more stringent In the engine technology becomes cleaner. The older diesel engines are still out there in operation so they emit large amounts of nitrogen oxides diesel particulate matter air toxics and greenhouse gases so this this grant program really provides incentive funding to turn over the older technologies to cleaner more efficient technology faster than normally would have. And how how old were the existing Mike Shea. The existing diesel engines there. Well these engines were built in nineteen nineteen ninety-seven but I'll tell you a little story about ten years ago. Had A war war veteran come on the vote and he heard the sound of the engines and a note to me he he named to me. Exactly what the engines were nicer. How'd you know that he said I was on a PT boat in the Pacific during World War? Two and I slept next to to those engines for a year so he recognized the sound. I say that because the technology in nineteen forties. I'm not sure what year he was in the war. I don't remember that but during that time. Technology for diesel. Admission was zero. I'm sure there was They were fighting a war So we inherited it engines at basically come with nineteen forty technology and what was built in ninety seven. So we're way way behind behind in terms of where we are today. Twenty twenty in this grant is accelerated us to a new level of reducing our admissions and contributing to the climate change. Wow that's kind of amazing when I think about I mean I suppose it shouldn't shock me and maybe as much as it does but the idea that you'd have similar technology in an engine sold in nineteen ninety-seven these were new engines then They were brand new but You know that they D- Detroit diesel hadn't hadn't come out with engines. That were as efficient as they are today. There's there's a we're call zero tier now they're at tier three. So there's been three jumps Shen inventory twenty twenty five plus years that gave for less less emissions the in in terms of the the emissions again. I guess Deirdre you would know a little bit more about how can can we. Can we translate this into this. Change will be equivalent to removing a certain number of vehicles from the highways of Vermont. I believe on on the application that I received from Mike Shea There they indicated that it would be equivalent to removing seventeen eighteen diesel class. Eight long haul trucks. That's that's quite an impact because those things can put out some smoke and aw you know obviously people wanna be able to do this kind of transportation both in boats and trucks All of it important to our economy and so on but if you can do it at a significantly smaller impact in terms of the initial an immediate pollution issues as well as the carbon emissions which are going to impact the environment and of course are huge concern these days? I think you are You making some progress is that that's the idea right. Yes definitely a- and Mike I'm your This were when does this work at done. Is it happening this winter. We started Right after we got at the Grant Award in terms of the planning We were awarded it in early October. Right now the crew I was talking to them. They're listening to us on board ship right now. Where are we've got all four engines out of the engine room sitting on our deck Right now the engines I tuned generators are being finished down in Georgia And they'll be put on a truck in the next two week and shipped to us about a month behind that will be our two new main engines and transmissions they will arrive at the beginning of March and they'll be able to be installed by the season opening in April. May I. We've set a goal. May I and my sales person just sold a cruise in April thirtieth so now we got April thirtieth deadline. Okay so you. We'll quite be tax day this year. You maybe take a little more time to get your taxes. Done this season start for actual cruises on Lake Champlain. And put that out there at the end of April or wars to make. We'll be ready. We've we've already committed okay. We got good strong crew. That know what they're doing. We have all the people in place so I'm one hundred percent confident. We'll be ready and are these contractors. Are Your employees or who's doing the work a combination we have some local steel people in Burlington or help us a crane. People that are helping us. We got naval architect down in Jacksonville Florida but Most of it is my guys. They're they're the bulk is right down there lifting the engines out cleaning a surface repainting And making it all better re piping rewiring will the passengers come summer Who are out for an evening cruise? Notice any difference Absolutely and in particular killer the P- The people who are at Burlington boathouse I'm so happy for them. Because of how dirty our PRI- prior engines were blown out by black black nasty smoke. These won't have any of that it's going to be a major major improvement so Yeah and sometimes we're out there and you can see that black smoke on the lake. Nobody likes it. Smells it stinks. Everybody's aware of what harm. It does so a person who runs the company. I'm proud of what we're doing. We've gone the extra mile. Yes that that sounds like again real progress and I I know I I have been up there and seen and and actually heard a little mumbling and grumbling there along the shoreline in around the boathouse. US on on the evenings. When the when the Ethan Allen Spirit of Ethan Allen is is getting going and people are like all that smoke you know CETERA and And so and understandably people concerned about this both for what. They're breathing themselves in the overall impact on the environment and this summer it's going to be a different story. Worrisome I it's GonNa be great because the people won't smell it and every I won't say everybody but most people are aware nowadays to harm. That is done and and we're correcting it or have. You actually gotten a lot of complaints to your company about the smoke from the folks around that Waterfront Burlington. We have some yes. I can read people's faces I'm standing on the shore and we get underway in the winter out of the south and it blows it right back at people standing I can read their faces. Yeah that's Ah Yeah I would imagine as the as the guy who owns the cruise ship company. That's not any fun for you. Know no we tried to start last year but there's always a A process to go through in the EPA funding and we were new to it and it.

"Policy institute at the University of Chicago which actually puts on what they called the voting village at DEFCON which is the Big International Hacker Convention And that's the folks you probably read about this in the press. It's it's a whole room whole setup where hackers are invited in to try to get into voting machines voting machines or brought from all over the country and we test to see their vulnerability Especially insofar as their network can get in there. Can you change election totals. Can you mess with them. So I've been involved with that the last couple couple years and it's a it's a blast and in the in the first round when this was I tried a lot of holes founder was assistant pretty solid or what. What was the general? What what kind of grade would you give? And how's that changed over time. Well that's tough because there are so many different systems used by so many different states You know some of them not so good. Good some of them quite good. I I will tell you about the the the machines we use here in Vermont These accu vote. Oh S.'s they're very old this Old Technology But in this case it's age really really works in its favour. Those things are very very hard to get into with a lot of without a lot of direct correct physical well without direct physical access because they're not network And I remember being there this last time we had a few of those open and we were looking. You know if I wanted to hook got my laptop year what could I do at a couple points. I just said you know whatever its weaknesses or challenges I would rather have this machine than in any of the other ones in this room to person. All the hackers agreed wow and and when you say they are not network that does mean that Y- you nobody can Get into the system from Saint Petersburg for instance just to name one said he might be right right. You'd have You'd have to actually go and physically plug in those things. There's a chain of custody protocol that makes that unlikely or or impossible. I don't WanNa you never. Everyone used the word impossible when you're talking about any aspect of cybersecurity even physical security. Yeah I mean But chain of custody is is Is a key term here because that actually the people who are recorded as to WHO's got control of the physical object in this case of the voting machine at the time right right and they live in the vault There needs to be you know. A couple voting officials around them Gamut so they do a pretty good job anyway I I wanted to ask you John. And you Oh you very kindly agreed. How break that this would be okay? to talk to you a little bit of Attica another conversation we had on the day Graham show earlier in the week with Senator Chris Pearson for much much hitting county who is part of a campaign to Bring about a national popular vote. meaning that the idea that presidential elections should be decided by whoever gets a majority of the votes around the country in And that the electoral college is a relic of the eighteenth century which Either needs to be the got away with completely or Actually in the case of the national popular campaign they are working on a system that would essentially get around. The Electoral College by having states states. Agree that whoever wins the popular vote. Nationally gets our electors in so if we're not You know you hope this wouldn't happen but Vermont ever ended up voting for candidate a majority of routers candidate a and but candidate b. got the national Majority than Vermont's electors would go to can and they'd be by virtue of this of this state law And the the the the hope is from the backers of this that it ends up with you we have go back to popular sovereignty or whatever where the the vote of individual people no matter where they live around the country ends up taking precedence over any any sort of state concerns on the theory that you know people were around before states actually created states and maybe therefore are at least a In some ways kind of superior a period of states are long around logger anyway senior states. Maybe that's the word I'm looking for but What do you what do you make of this John? Do you think that there is Any good reason to do this or his assist fine the way it is or where we on here. Well I mean that's a it's a big federal question federalism question isn't it It's I know you were talking about applications of technology when we were on the break and the idea that you know this was something that You know the Pony Kony Express would have to run and give the results of the election to and I don't know the technology impacts that argument so much because the technology is simply the the tool and not the job and we always have to keep that tool and job question separate so I guess in the question is what is the job. Isn't the job up to treat is not just democracy and the democratic vote but to treat all these states and continue to have all these states exist as independent independent entities in our closest we can get to the truest sense of the word state as possible so that they're interacting somehow at the same level. More is that is that a meaningless concept or concept is not meaningful enough to change the dynamic of one person one vote. Because that's that's really what we're talking about Do we want to have one person. One vote have those votes equal the same thing across the country regardless of the state. And that's where you have the electoral college change that equation. Yeah I think it's fascinating and I've had a couple emails over the course of the week from people who you didn't like my conversation with Chris Pearson very much because I mean I symbol. I'm a little sympathetic to the idea that that that somebody who who lives in New York Orca ought to have a vote which counts about as much as somebody lives in Vermont to where they live. It shouldn't necessarily Matter that much but with the card electoral college system you actually. They do have a chance for a certain votes in certain states. To kind of you know What more be more equal than others? In the old days of George Orwell. You're you're creating a crude proportionality with the way. The electoral votes are distributed. But it's still a crude proportionality. It still means that you get right down to it. One person's vote in one state is not going to be the same as in another and that that does not feel right the And yet I have. I do have some listeners. Who've of emailed me to say they they are strong advocates of maintaining The state integrity in the state sovereignty and so on and so forth and Very worried about talk about getting away from that And you know some folks I mean. I know the comedian and commentator Bill Maher occasionally gets on his campaign about trying to Do Change up the in a big way to the United States Senate because he doesn't like the fact that forty million Californians are represented by two members of the United States. Senate it and you know six hundred thirty thousand reminders are represented by two members of the United States Senate and You know I remember Dude a little tally tally. One time he was when he was talking about this a couple of years ago and And it occurred to me that the New England would be our fifth largest state if it were one st and It and it has twelve senators and and that sounds like a bad idea. I'm sure to Bill Maher and yet I noted that the last three US senators it's who had been hunting show had been Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren and Angus King on offering New England? I was wondering which one he would jettison. And so so you know kind of an interesting debate about about states rights there as well such a tough combination conversation especially in this environment where everything. Everything is so harshly polarized where the question comes down to which system gets me. My President of choice. That's too bad I I really do. Wish we could have a conversation like this and strip it of the those political considerations because frankly I do think eras change and then we could very well. Yes in the last couple of cases where the electoral college diverged from the popular majority they they elected Republicans. Okay so it looks like if you're complaining about the Electoral College you must be some kind of Liberal Democrat And yet I can imagine in in twenty or thirty or fifty years from now being exactly in the opposite situation here and then it you know again whose whose ox is getting gored. I guess is the question Or whose ox oxes getting pushed in the case of two thousand but the The you know it's just I don't know oh it's one of these sort of civics class kind of conversations. I wish we could have without it becoming so tinged with WHO's advantage so there you go yeah it's a it's a a real shame that so many so many important conversations to have our. We're wearing a point where it's tinged without as you say. Yeah John Auto is the I feel your city clerk I would say the Segue flew by and John. Thanks so much for coming by it for the ride and I really appreciate it. Let's.

and let me take you a step back for route because you have been shaped by your experiences I am sure having been born in Kashmir can you bring us back to your childhood how it all started and that would be I think a very interesting human interest story yes I was born in Kashmir which is the land of great mountains a beauty I lived in the mountains my family my great grandfather stop it it is not being an arts and crafts and set up and also emporium in Kashmir my grandfather and my grandfather followed my father Bobby in business but in politics so I had the benefit of being surrounded by out but then also Kashmir unfortunately has been in the area of all so I grew up in an area of conflict our families were separated hi I have was only less than five years old then family got separated and related as refugees of a problem of the very well to do family but we lived in the mountains when did you come to the United States for I'm curious then it then but then at the age of twenty it was a miracle I was able to come from this great mountains of get monthly cash we have two beautiful Brooklyn a different kind of mountains there was six story some of them with elevators

up the path and that's part of the message that I enjoyed reading so much in your book because if it is to be it is up to me as a as a wonderful expression and there you took yourself and applied as a bookkeeper without the experience not even knowing what a bookkeeper did and then you ultimately became the CEO of the youth in our you let a group to purchase the company how did that happen you rose through the ranks give us that story well again going back to that job with bookkeeping gap it was there that my grandfather and cash me us and to me that's the help me by sending me about ten baskets of ups and craps and said tell them and want to help you and also send of the cost well I our class received electrical mob involves your grooming Dale's I called an eight and twelve days finally saw me and I convinced Bloomingdale's to becoming a customer of arts and crafts so you know that little incident on my grandfather sending me out crap we do this business then after that y'all baton on Canal Street I went to Wall Street at the suggestion of the owner up I was that good luck on Wall Street unit that what will I do on Wall Street I was sitting marketing he said tell them you're a financial analyst anyway about you all the best and a yeah let was recruited by the rock child well it's been a school in finance and was dead that a one of my associates introduced me to that and settled on repeat and Allen Allen became a customer and then I convinced him to have we need to enter the positive and we develop products every day did for ten years and then he asked me to look for it and Alan and no I didn't want to go there but I can I say something that he will say forget it I said if I have to come in under Dick your job I did take a job that inside the Ted Vollmer to Yonkers without Ethan Allen eighty seven years back and even though the public on public yeah went public in nineteen ninety three is what I don't read actually event in nineteen sixties so that I joined the company and then in the early eighties it was acquired by a company in St Louis by this time I had become president and CEO and that company called into call came under hostile takeover bid and I decided that it was an opportunity for me to put a group together and fight and then I say nineteen eighty nine the budget the company I was younger Polish ninety percent that interest rates up to eighteen percent we had to make so here's what I want to ask you let's talk about the ever changing retail sector Amazon obviously has been a major factor in that people are able to go online and yet here you are Ethan Allen continues to thrive you chose to go the brick and mortar store fronts well a lot of other competitors really fell by the wayside when did you see the change and how did you leave the company to adjust this new approach to selling furniture going back to make didn't catch me I was also captain of spoke speaking cricket teams so I'll write I felt that you know I had run one team so even Alan Wald my team five thousand socially it's and eat every then come into the not lost and fifty good yes with the world changed must be changed with issue of globalization commoditization technology internet in all of these changes I felt that personal service will still remain very very important but today postal service has to be combined with technology so yes our retail industry across the board has suffered greatly devastated what we are doing well because of the fact that we have fifteen hundred interior designers today we combine personal service with technology and that's what's making it work if we didn't do that yes selling a commodity in a product it hot to survive and reach it what I also enjoyed reading in your book Farouk and I what I want to make sure that I publicize the book the trailblazer from the mountains of Kashmir to the summit of global business and beyond you focused in the book of how important it is to focus on the customer and that really does get lost in business today so how do you get your mind set on focusing on the customer what's unique about Ethan Allen when it comes to that you know it's also a question of how we define custom I defined customer as my team members my associates I've gone my house and associates fifteen hundred interior designers you know.

Fagen from Steely Dan was born on this day he turned seventy two a couple of others of note George foreman turns seventy one today he was born in Marshall Texas maybe I'll grill a burger on the old George foreman grill the day in his honor I also Bobby ray hall the American race car driver in team owner turned sixty seven today and maybe one or two more birthdays here or maybe were maybe we'll maybe we run our lock out now Marcus Bagwell the pro wrestler turns fifty today buff Bagwell and Jared Kushner god the son in law of Donald Trump turns a ripe old thirty nine today there you have it birthdays for today January the tenth and joining us on the program now we say good morning once again in when we always enjoy having bread Blake meant on Brad thanks so much for joining us here on Memphis morning news how are you good morning thank you feel great and for those that haven't caught our conversations brats former Deputy Assistant president George W. bush and had many tasks with the bush family and I always appreciate his inside the president trump's gone all Republicans to oppose their fingers quote crazy Nancy's war powers resolution is she ever going to bring this to it to the Senate you think well if you make it up to the Senate but it's not worth the paper it's written on because the Senate is not going to pass it and assuming the Senate were to pass it the present you think he's going to sign a bill that limits its constitutional authority this isn't happening so you know we can't see hello she should probably get a map of the capitol finder waited Mitch McConnell's office crop what the articles of impeachment let's get through this nonsense I mean it's got to be a good what men and a half inch or two minute walk over to the Senate I mean yeah I've done it many times I mean it's you know you don't eat bread crumbs for Google maps probably either so I I apparently everybody got in a tizzy over on the Democrat side when selling money gotta got wiped out and and pelo C. called it provocative and disproportion I guess one death in exchange for the thousands that had been killed of the allies against the is that disproportionate should have killed maybe several thousand more in her eyes what I don't get that well I think Democrats are disappointed that there will work for you cancel the fact is the president acted out against the enemy combatant who's done some work on the damage name tortured killed Americans and and and and other innocents including Google people fifteen hundred protesters killed within the last month in a row and rose up against their own regime always killing in in proxy never in their own name finding others to do their dirty work this guy was probably the number one terrorist in the world today the present was given an opportunity we found at the scene of the crime he was behind the preaching of our embassy a couple weeks ago in addition to a contract to being killed in a in a Iraqi military qualify military assault sponsored by Iran so he was he was caught red handed in the president we calmly and deliberately took him out you the we were you know we were faded into this buyer Ron who wanted us to enter into a aggression with a downed are drones when the bomb the Saudis and Donald Trump would be faded but he took an opportunity in the opportunity was well taken and instead of hello see commending the president like we all did when Obama took out of some of the lot they act out against the president give aid and comfort to the enemy it's it's really saying red black men joining us on Memphis morning news it would have been interesting to see if during that strike if any buildings had been hit when not present when president trump made the call to take out Solomon because so the money excuse me because usually we get the same old song that every time anytime anytime that a coalition or US forces hit a building it is always a school or hospital which children in it that's what they always come out and say well and and look the fact is we he was taken out of the porn back no collateral damage at all but look what the Iranians did they were so trigger happy and scared to death they took out a civilian airliner yeah that's a fact it was it was it was a it was a a missile the took out of Ukrainian airliner we are running as a board and and other innocents where is the outrage at that act and now they're trying to they're trying to give them aid and comfort as well by saying was just an accident please it was it was it was an accident that I should have never happened but for the fact that they acted out against America were you surprised or not when president trump showed great restraint in his response to the American people and essentially I guess said listen these guys attack this back on the bases we have no casualties I believe this is kind of to appease certain factions we're gonna let this slide for now absolutely the right thing to do again the measured and deliberate response the calculation of one was racked back on their heels when we killed there number two and the only one above she was one so I I have to believe that they were absolutely shocked that president trump took this action and look how brazen soul money was to parade around he was prevented by international law from entering other countries because he was labeled a terrorist not just by the United States by the world community so Donald Trump did exactly what he was supposed to do which charged he was president America is a lot safer the world is a lot safer absolutely Brad like been thank you so much for joining me here in Memphis have a great rest your week always appreciate your insight and there's always something crazy going on but you help us make sense of it all thank you so much thanks a lot bye bye Memphis morning news it's sixty two degrees they're storms Obrero en storms umbrella get reading we are forecasts on that coming up six forty two take a look at the roads first with heather your the morning right now it is very quiet out there we are rex free but we do have a stolen vehicle.

"They really expanded their brand and transformed into one of the top home furnishing companies in the last thirty years that's after for Route Kurth Ouari Ari took over as chairman president and CEO of Ethan Allen Interiors in nineteen eighty eight. This role is far from where Catholics started he was born in Kashmir Kashmir the muslim-majority politically divided region in northern India he left home as a refugee after taking part in street demonstrations and came to the US he he got his graduate degree from New York University and worked as a financial analyst at bear stearns and CFO at Rothschild and company before being recruited by Ethan Allen on all the while Catherine has remained trues roots dedicating himself to the cause of peace in Kashmir and other places making sure his company operates in a way that is sustainable and socially socially responsible and working with global leaders on human rights issues among other things. Mr Catholic has a new book out about his journey and values that he promotes. It's titled Trailblazer from the Mountains of Kashmir to the summit of global business and Beyond and he joins us right now through. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you very very much a pleasure to be to join you. Thank you and I guess it easy the two to connect your early years in Kashmir to what you are trying to do outside of your your life as CEO of of Ethan Allen and obviously it plays a role into add into how you approach the company but how important important that region and finding peace in that region is well. It is very very important and it has of course been a very important boughten part of my life. I grew up in a family that was half in involved with arts and crafts they were merchants dealing with Kashmiri arts and crafts and and the world famous push Merino wool and cashmere rousseff. Is this other side. My father was in politics hit studied law and joined the government so growing up in an area Korea which is of course beautiful rates culture. I grew up playing sports and sports was very very important for me. It kept me busy and invariably. I was a captain of a number of teams and including cricket. Cricket was very important in the sense it helped me team develop ideas about leadership and because in cricket the captain phase with the team strategizes with the team chairs with the team so that was very very important also living in the mountains it also taught me about dignity there. Ed People are simple that treat each other with dignity. They respect people of all different of different. Nick nommik levels they eat together so those all those of a very important in my growing up and of course to play cricket. I did not do what normally it was expected that is to study medicine or engineering. I studied English literature and Political Science and at age twenty ended ended up through all kinds of unusual circumstances in New York so your family from what I understand when you're when you're young was separated and I guess part of it had gone to Pakistan. Yes well what happened. was that Kashmira you know. The history of Kashmir is that while it is the official name is genuine Kashmir. The Kashmir region is the one where the the the ethnic Kashmiris live actually and it's native language it is called Kashir and the language of Kashir is is and the person coming from Kashir is kosher and these at this time Brock's approximately six million people in that region. It's a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains and it had been independent throughout through many many yes yeah it's almost almost a thousand years but it losses independence and like for Kashmir's would say yesterday but it was fifteen eighty six and then through many many different political situations it this area was enlarged into different regions added on and became became this region of German Kessler but the main area of conflict area with the problem is the Kashmiri speaking area and that's where I grew up and that's where my family was involved with it and when the Indian subcontinent was divided and Kashmir about sixty percent came under Indian control forty percent came under Paxton control and my father we would all and the engine control as I said that is the main Kashmiri speaking area is there he decided to go to the other side for businesses it and then was not allowed to come back and because at that time they thought that they will be plebiscite really the United Nations has had agreed upon and he's been there and became an official of the pakistan-controlled Kashmir mayor while we were living on the Indian control side so I was just under five years old my father asked was able to arrange for myself itself my two other siblings and my mother to to go to the Pakistan control side while my older brother who was I I think eight or nine and my sister was ten stayed with a grandfather. We thought we were GONNA go for at Max for a few months or a year we ended up staying India for ten years and after ten years we are allowed to go back to the main part of Kashmir on the on the Indian administered side but at some point your your father ended up coming to the United States and the and then you came here as well that's right my father stayed on the other side and then he got a job job in the New York's World Fair and when he was here because for ten years or so he had ah by that time fourteen years he had not come back to his home and he was here got denied to the world's fair and that's where he decided that perhaps he would help me by sending me applications from New York University Columbia University City College of New York because it was looking at New York area and then applied and it's not an easy my my jenny very very hard to get out because of my papers because of having lived on on both sides my papers not right but many many people helped and I was lucky and I was able to come to New York at at about twenty years but you tell a story in the book and I found this interesting that that not only getting to New York was was a challenge Alan. Jr actually trying to get on the plane to get out of India to get to New York was a challenge. Yes it was because I didn't have the papers apis first of all The first challenge was that I had to appear in a business interest test in Bombay going from Kashmir to there. There was a story by itself because the pilots those days Indian airline pilots would decide whether they're going to leave Kashmir. If the passes were clear and sometimes you know the decisions are not necessarily based on the vetter they wanted to stay in Kashmir whether it was good however I have to convince a pilot the to really go and that was the first other one was that coming to America and it was I didn't have the papers because when we came from the puck decided to the indian-administered side Viet given some giving temporary papers and all of those had expired that was not I was not thinking of coming to America but I was able to read it was an experience and an adventure and and lots of people help me uh-huh and ended up in in America. You talk about your entrepreneurial spirit. Where did that come from. Do you think well it came from by being being having to live by myself because then I went to the Foxton administered side. I was somewhat more or less on my own because we lived in in a place which was thousand feet. My father was not there most of the time he was in business. I'm working in politics. My mother was not well so I had I just saw fend for myself and even at age travel. I had to go to a different city to to go to classes and I became I'm a commuter at age travel lewd by myself and all those sort of helped me you might say with my entrepreneurial issued but also sports help me they'll do. That was a saving grace for me. At all level that was deeply involved with sports and almost you know that became my family. We're joined I by Faruk Kathura who is the author of the Book Trailblazer from the mountains of Kashmir to the summit of global business and beyond Faruk is the president CEO Furniture Retailer Ethanol and you're listening to knowledge award in here on Sirius. Xm One thirty two business radio powered by the Wharton School so you get the opportunity eventually to get here to the United States weights and having had your father sent send you all of these different ideas of colleges. I was was college. Your first thought when you we're coming here to the US well of course I did get I came on a student visa because that's how I came and so yes I had studied just finished a. Ba in Kashmir and of course in cash Schmidt at that time high school was ten years and colleges four years. There's there's a little bit less than what we have here and so it was like an associate degree but of course over there it was to be and I did a pen and the ad and the graduate business admissions test as I said in Bombay must have done well because I've got admission to New York University and when I came here I had to decide and get help or what should I study I I I was late because of the conflict in that part of the world late in getting paper that was about three three weeks or so late in at in attending classes so I had an adviser. He suggested Ah why don't I study accounting. You got a job I went in there. They were debits and credits and all this stuff I said No. You said how about economics. It was gained a lot of graphs. I said no then he said marketing. I said I never heard that minority and I said what as Marketing Marketing Means Commission people ideas of what to do. It's like selling and convincing. I said I can do that so my so I studied marketing however I had to get a job because my father had was here for three months and after that I was only own living in Queens The New York area. That's welfare was there and so I saw an ad it said bookkeeper I asked asked my class fellows. It was downtown Manhattan Canal Street and they said Yeah I said what is bookkeeping. I'd never seen a calculator. I never seen any books. Don't apply but anyway I went in and I was able to convince and of course somebody really helped me there to get the job and taught me about bookkeeping and it was only love that small printing company whose stint suggested said you know. Why did you want to work on Wall Wall Street because Nyu Graduate School of Business Laws next to Wall Street so I fed okay. I remember the first building on wall all street and in fact this the owner of the printing company where I work said tell them you want a job as a financial analyst and of course I had had no idea what a financial analyst does I mentioned the first building one. Wall Street walked hopping on the sixteenth floor got a job with BS tens as a junior financial blandest and while I was still going to school and also was at the printing company my grandfather and and and my father but that time father had gone back to Kashmir off to about close to seventeen a sixteen seventeen years of being an exile finding and home to see his parents students these other children and also to to see his family family and so they they he osma grandfather who ahead of our business family and business to arrange to send me we tend to twelve wicker baskets of arts and crafts from Kashmir and they did and then I said where would I sell them so I at. NYU We had received a lecture so from Marvin traub see your bloomingdale's very well respected merchant.
