So Kim watering the Danny gets Kind of dried out. It's going to come back or stand for me to take it out. Impossible for me to answer that authoritatively without seeing what you're seeing. But when you have when you say it's turning you are you talking about the the actual lines? Are you talking about just the leaves? They're turning out because he when you when you have yellow turning leaves on it this time of year on a lime tree, it's probably cause you're overwatering. It And so you have to kind of figure out. Is it time to report this thing? Because weight is it in the ground or in a pot? It's in the ground. Okay? You may be over watering it. Um, I can't tell you without seeing the damage of the yellow on your leaves. But so when I think it's that, then I tell the caller you got to go out and do a test with the garden trial. You know, you need to dig about 68 inches down into where you think the root system is And if it's sopping wet, you need to modify your watering practices. And then answering your question. Yes, it's fixable, but we got to figure out what's going on in the soil. Um and I'm not there with my own two eyes. So now we have to perform a couple of tests. You have to perform a couple of tests. And if you want to do that, this afternoon, call me back tomorrow morning. Give me an update of what you saw What you experienced like that. If you have not been feeding it consistently lime trees.

Analyzing California's Governor Recall Election: The Three Waves of Ballots
"There's going to be three waves about that happen tonight. And tomorrow and leading up to the next couple days the first balanced that are gonna be counter all mail in ballots so expect the democrats have a major jump and that tonight but that doesn't mean it's over. The second wave of ballots are going to be people that have voted in person today or they went and dropped off those meal and ballots. Third wave is going gonna be people that meld in their ballots today or a few days before election day so could be short. Night could be a long night. It's always looked now. I believe this thing is razor close. I believe that there is a silent californian voter ready to rise up against the new regime recalls tricky. There's only one other governor that is successfully been able to fight off a recall in recent american political history and that was governor scott walker andrew. You live in california. Stop looking at the polls. Those are all garbage. Those are simulated. What are you seeing hearing on the ground in california. I'm seeing an incredible amount of energy for the for larry elder. You could make the argument that i live in a bubble. I probably do we all do to some extent. I will tell you that this you know you. And i were talking months ago. I was underwhelmed. I didn't think that it really stood real chance. All of a sudden the energy behind the recall movement exploded it was a true grassroots movement. Outpouring i mean you're seeing it in in liberal enclaves strongholds like santa barbara you're seeing it and coastal communities you were seeing massive crowds gather local communities getting together and in ways that i hadn't seen in california in a long time. Now there was. There was trump excitement all this this this blew that away. I will tell you anecdotally. This blew that away. I think there was a collective exhaustion. There's just homelessness everywhere. It's expensive we all look at the state. Is the weather the topography. The just the everything about it. There's so much going for it and to see it being run the way it is. It's it's a
Fresh update on "ft" discussed on Show Me The Money
"Overwhelmed with business and we thank everybody for that, Um, it's it's to the point where it's been so overwhelming. I mean, I was sitting at the house last night about 9 15. And I had been to like I'm not exaggerating, curious like seven different places yesterday. Picking up plants here, spraying this yard that we're going to re side there, Um, spraying the hillside up and Sprinkle that we've got to do shrubs on Um, I mean, you name it and I'm sitting there and I'm just like I got 15 jobs running around in my head that we're waiting even to. Yeah, like like the guys. Like we were just over. We need to say happy birthday. We always say Happy birthday, Bob. Well, Bob's birthday is next week. How about to have her birthday? Bob? Um, we did some work for Bob and wrote a whole book there on the Mount Rushmore Classic Gardens by far Um, but we did. We did some work for road and then the other day built a little wall down the left hand side of the house. Ray cited that left hand side because you know, Bob and him ain't getting no I said Bob, and them ain't getting any older. I think he's built. He blames it on Roda. Roda ain't getting no younger, but anyways, you go around the left hand side of the house. And they had just a little gentle slope. You know, from the bushes going down to the property line between there and in the fence and It was just enough where it's uncomfortable. You know what I mean? So we went down there and built a wall about a foot tall ball 70 ft long, So it's pretty good size wall time, you know, rent it all out, but it was Foot tall going down through there, and it just made that side flip. So it's smooth that up. Then the other side we put in a French drain tied it into. He's already got a couple of downspouts popped out to the driver. I mean to the road, we popped that, uh, French drain into it and put a p gravel walk up that right hand side. So now No more in and out down the right side anymore. They're done with that was a swamp on that right side. Anyway, it's your It's your typical, you know? S a garden home. You know, garden homes today to me aren't what they used to be A garden home back in the day Used to be a 1000 to 1100 square Foot house. Now what you would consider garden home there 3000 square feet, you know, but it was typical. You know, they have probably about what 20 ft between the houses roughly and everything's kinda each houses downhill a little bit from the other and that right hand side. Just caught a lot of water, and there wasn't any son in that area. It's just always even on even during a drought. It would stay swampy. If you watered, Chris. I found out the hard way part of what their problem was. They've got a neighbor that had a sump pump that runs From their basement going down into this spot. Yeah, well, I found it the hard way. You know, we go down through their trench in the boom, But not only did I hit So Bob had his drains coming off of his downspouts. Well, I hit the neighbors drain which ran in the same ditch, so I'm literally I dug up the neighbors and I spared Bob's And in amongst that That salt pump drain was running down into that spot. And it was supposed to be going like One of them had a slotted pipe in there. Keep mayor which one? It was fixed it, but I can't remember which one it was, and it was kind of It was kind of rigged up to go over into these pops, and I don't think it was getting where it needed to base of just that right there. If it kicked on every now and then and and dump water in there, you'd have to be watching it to know it. Or it would be down in there, but you still have, like a boggy spot down in there. So I think that was probably part of the part of the culprit, which now is P Gravel, So that doesn't matter. Yeah. I mean, you're gonna be walking over the top of that, and you won't have to worry about it. Which I'm going to go back over there, probably Monday and touch that up because Rhoda I told her I was putting white pea gravel in there. Which, technically, I did. You got white and you got brown, right? Well, I put white pea gravel in there, but she wanted it wider than that. Like a marble like white white marble chips. I'm gonna touch it up.
Should Discussions of Race Make It Into Our School Curriculum?
"Only thing i'm saying is when you're teaching history to a bunch of kids you know you have to teach at all at least you have to teach the basic pointers and for black americans. The history of this country has been less than favourable. So i think that in the context of that discussion saying and to this day. We still have some problems with race. There are some legacies of slavery that still affect black people working on it today. Something like that. That's a kind of racial ization that i'm in favor of because it doesn't encourage stereotyping. It doesn't encourage discrimination. It just encourages a base awareness of some serious problems. So but that's not happening right. Is that largely what we're seeing through school districts like chicago And in washington. Dc and the entire california school system representing ten thousand schools and six million student. I've seen the of documents on those. Yeah it is that it. It doesn't have that kind of nuance and complexity that you just present right where it's eight. Let me just say this has that part of the kind of ark angel triumphant of the woke ism. Coalition is nicole. Hannah jones robin diangelo. Mex- and nicole hannah jones in particular right the author of the sixteen nineteen project She heretical says that america was founded on slavery. Right and so part okay with that but it's just not true. Depends on what you mean by found this. She defines this. She says the founding fathers were in favorite not true. George washington wasn't john adams wasn't john quincy. Adams wasn't thomas jefferson even signed a moratorium new slaves coming into the united states ben franklin chair and anti-slavery convention in seventeen seventy five. None of these guys were writing x. Positionally how wonderful slavery. This isn't being taught to third graders sixteen nineteen projects little new york op. Ed and you know it's not a see that's where you're wrong. The sixty nineteen projects being implemented at school district curriculum in thousands of school districts across grew. Cross it's not just like a podcast. This curriculum there are principles of the sixteen nineteen project that i think are defensible. First of all we as americans tend to think of the founding of our country as its legal founding. You know but the legal. Founding of the united states didn't really mean much for a slave.
Is Racism in America Causing the High Rate of Black Fatherlessness?
"The moment that we all of a sudden de-emphasized fathers being in the home and subsidized fatherless-ness. We saw all these other trends increase so in the one thousand nine right before the civil rights act passed about twenty four percent of black children. Were born without a father. Now it's upwards of seventy percent you guys can look at the washington examiner. It's seventy seven percent. Let's say it's sixty five percent so something has to explain that forty point increase back yet. Just let me finish yet. And and it's not necessarily that. America got more racist. It could be the cocaine thing which you know is a common issue. It could be operations of all these things. But a forty point increase. I would point to a culture. Fatherless-ness really bad government run public schools and then subsidizing behavior. That isn't good so there are a few things that i can agree with you. On first of all having to people in your house to raise you pretty essential You absolutely this is undeniable While i don't believe in shaming single parents even if they're single parent did mrs bad decision making. It's still good you need. It's up in this economy one parent honestly but with that being said there has been research shown that the rate of black fatherless-ness is somewhat over exaggerated in large part because that number only applies to married fathers so husbands raising their children. It turns out when you account for unmarried. Black couples taking care of their kids. The numbers actually rise to those just think just below white couples. I think there was an article on that. I don't know if i remember sought advice but attracts back. Some really big study. That was done back in two thousand sixteen So that's one point but you are right. There are perverse incentives for example Many welfare Stipulations cut off With a shared income which is only a few thousand dollars per year higher than the necessary. Cutoff for the single income. Meaning that if you're a single mom You can apply for the welfare just fine but then if you get married or otherwise file jointly you get you go above the cap for welfare. This is a horribly program undeniably ended incentivizes bad destructive
Antifascist Vaush Answers Charlie’s Questions About Reparations
"How. 'bout reparations for slavery. i think. I'm pretty in favor of that. Yeah okay tits. Make the argument just no debt. We said forty acres and a mule. We never paid it and unfortunately the material reality for a lot of people who were slaves didn't change that much after they were emancipated. I mean if you are a slave and your made free. That's a big step up. Don't get me wrong but you have nothing. I mean nothing. And because of the way generational wealth transfers from father dishonor mother to either to anyone to copy their Unfortunately we still see the consequence of that borne out you can actually look county by county where were slaves kept. Which were the plantation counties. And you see oh this group of black neighborhoods. That's where they settled after slavery ended. It's like really immediate stuff and it's a debt owed that this nation never paid. I don't necessarily aggressive rations. I think we need to clarify what that ultimately means. But i will say I've long held the same position. I actually worked on the documentary. There's an issue of people who were enslaved than they were released and they were not given any means to actually Develop and grow. And so there's a general waste is a generational wealth gap between people based on race for these historical reasons. The challenge i see. I suppose is you know. We've done a lot to amend the laws and changed them. For for instance you know redlining blockbusting and become become illegal. And now we're dealing with an ultimately. I believe it is a class issue. Of course. racism still
Antifascist Vaush Debates Charlie on the Profit Incentive for COVID Vaccines
"I'm just curious. Does that ever make you stop short and say who. Maybe they're trying to inoculate us on a vaccine that might not be as effective to try to pursue profit not wellbeing. Does that ever like enter into your consideration. It's a consideration. You should take about anything produced by any company. That's run for profit. Which is everything you know Basically every need in american society need is tempered by the knowledge that there are people out there who are paid very large salaries to sell it to you. This is the case for everything. We'd everything we eat every time you run down main street or in my case i guess You know the boulevards in los angeles You're seeing the protracted efforts of a billion dollar industry to make sure you want things they're selling could that be the case for covert undeniably. There was a prophet incentive involved. Oh my goodness i'm sorry. And there was probably a protected effort on the part of these companies to make sure they were the first and they probably took every dirty advantage. What but with the data available. I have to still much i would say. Hey i would prefer eating. Mcdonald's who to starvation. I have to say this is probably still something we should be doing you want to do. I don't wanna stay. We've been twenty minutes. Oh for sure gonna make a final media would starve. I actually think this has been really constructive not like that. You know inflammatory. I think that deep down you have this kind of you know urged that i'm already there were. Maybe they want this thing to go on for another decade to go make another hundred billion dollars. And maybe the cheap drug hydrochloric winter ivermectin might work better than they might think. I don't have that urge. Certain other studies would disagree with you earlier. We could change the topic. I just i just think it's so. I'll know that was a healthy discord. Can i meet in the middle on that one on that very last one. I do not trust the pharmaceutical industries. Though the available evidence does seem to point to the effectiveness the vaccines say this Nationalized the pharma industry seriously. It can be used for the collective good and i would ironically actually trust it more in the hands of our ineffective. Bloated government would be sociopaths. Who run at
Gary Ginsberg Talks About His New Book 'First Friends'
"And there is really a fantastic book that's been out. It's called First Friends by Gary Ginsburg. Who's got quite a pedigree himself. Gary, How are you, sir? Very well, Thank you for having me Well, it's a fantastic book. And, uh, unfortunately, like every other Interview. There's only so much time, so let's jump right in these first friends that have an enormous influence on the president on an administration. Chapter one talks about Jefferson and Madison. Now, this audience is quite familiar with Jefferson and Madison. But Madison Was very, very close to Jefferson. I'm not sure how how much people know about that. Tell us Well, I certainly didn't. I knew they were great collaborators. But what I learned in writing this book is that they were also best friends, and they were best friends for 50 years from 17 76. So when Jefferson died on July 4th 18 26, and what I found fascinating is that they're 50 EUR 50 year relationship with deep it was emotional. It could veer between the serious like whether we needed a bill of rights to the deeply personal, For example, when Jefferson tried to help Madison overcome being jilted by a 15 year old when he was 32 years old, and they were complete opposites as I write, Jefferson was this tall, dashing Huge personality. Madison was five ft four and quite reserved, but it worked in combination and I think it's because Jefferson needed Madison's exacting mind and practical nature. As much as Madison needed Jefferson's bold ideas in large personality, and I think in my book, and I think in American history, it's probably the single most powerful friendship in the history of America.

Perseverance Rover, Ingenuity Helicopter, and the Search for Ancient Life on Mars
"On April 6th in this desolate Martian crater 170 million miles from Earth. Perseverance posed for a selfie with ingenuity. The little helicopter it had just dropped off. Two weeks later. The rovers cameras recorded ingenuity is historic First flight hovering 10 ft. Off the ground for 30 seconds. It may not look like much, but for those who work so long to make it happen. It was a reason to rejoice. Project manager Mimi on led the team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California that's been working on ingenuity for six years. How hard is it to fly a helicopter in Mars? Very, very, very hard. We really truly started with the question of is it possible? A lot of people thought it could not be done because it's really counterintuitive. I mean, you need atmosphere for the place to push atmosphere to get lived. The atmosphere on Morris is completely different than the world atmosphere at Mars is so thin. I mean the room we're in, right. It's compared to that It was 1% of the atmospheric density over there, so The question of really Can you generate enough lift, you know, to really build to lift up anything. That was a fundamental question. In subsequent flights. Ingenuity has gone higher and farther, traveling more than a mile in all over the surface of Mars. It is a triumph not only for NASA, but for its partners in the private sector, who helped make various parts of the helicopter. Don't Let it go. Don't freak out. Matt Keenan has a history of making unusual things that can fly as an engineer at a company called AeroVironment, which produces drones for military and civilian use. I mean, that's incredible 10 years ago for a military research project, Keenan and his team created this robotic hummingbird, which has a tiny camera on board. Whoa! Oh, there it is. Oh, my God. That's amazing. Keenan, an engineer, Ben Pipe Enberg led the AeroVironment team that created ingenuity is rotors motors and landing gear. Why was this so challenging because it has to be a spacecraft as well as an aircraft. And and flying it as as an aircraft on Mars is pretty challenging because of the density of the air That's similar to about 100,000

A European University Adds An Esports Education Platform ft. Richard Withers of KAMK
"Led to the development of this new. Kind of Esports education platform for the University. Yeah. So so firstly, thank you for having me. I appreciate it off. Any opportunity to discuss the topic of Esports education especially in this day and age. I think they're sort of a a stigma surrounding the topic of a sports education. Especially with certain people in the industry, wanting to put out some less than valuable should I say opportunities for for up-and-coming talent, where you're not really getting a valuable education and you're putting a lot of money into this. So, it's really important for me to come on these sort of shows and just highlight that there are some some great players in the scene who are really providing some valuable education for those who want to pursue a career in sports. As you said I'm the E Sports development manager here at kind of University of applied sciences. We're definitely not the largest here in Midland but when it comes to sort of gaming and he Sports, we've developed quite a unique ecosystem surrounding that from the University universities Inception, quite some time ago. Now far before I join a gym One, they've had a well-known and well-respected game development. Degree offered in finished. Some of the graduates of went on to the largest game development, companies in the world, like supercell Rovio soft. So there was already that amazing gaming culture here that University, but when we were able to be one of the first, if not only the, the first in the world to offer a full bachelor's degree, these Sports business, of course that further exemplified our, our ecosystem here surrounding gaming and Esports. So although we are a smaller University on many of our students are focusing on the topic of either game development or e-sports. So it's definitely a very exciting opportunity for us. The degree itself is practical degree, of course, not during these times with covid-19 and everything, we've had to transition to an online format but fingers crossed going into the upcoming month. Autumn all of our students will be back with us on campus. That said, has been for the past three years, which is amazing. Especially as our course heavily focuses on the Practical elements. So getting our students that valuable hands-on experience and allowing them to grow their Network pool. So, of course, that is made much easier. When you're able to actually come in person off, we're constantly having industry experts. Come to speak to the students. And there are many student owned and operated organizations, like constant GT, which you mentioned. I'm the CEO off. So, I sort of act as the connection between the students and the upper management here at the University. But that organization allows the students to sort of get their hands in an industry that they do. It's sort of an all-encompassing brand. They do everything you can imagine from organizing large-scale events, they create digital content, they host, and manage, various Competitive Edge. Stores in csgo Valerie, Etc. So a little bit of everything.

Flights are suspended so far, the government says 25 people have died. NPR China Affairs correspondent John Roach has more. The water fell hard and fast in Zhangzhou, a city of more than 12 million, and the sewers couldn't keep up. In this video posted online, a group of men pull a woman to safety as they battle waist high brown water pouring down the street like a swollen river. According to state media. 12 of the dead drowned when the subway system flooded. State broadcaster CCTV interviewed a man caught underground when water poured in part of the people around us were clenching the railings next to the tunnel. There were about a dozen of us crawling together. The water level rose through our shooter's several of us Han there including me and the child. The two of us almost gave up because we were exhausted. Do Liang Chen is an expert on China's climate at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. He says the city should have reacted more quickly. But I was surprised anyway that this time the subway were still operating, he says several factors set off what some Chinese scientists are calling a once in 5000 year event. There's a typhoon approaching the Chinese coast. It's hundreds of miles from Kunin, but already bringing water from the sea over land. Is also persistent high pressure over the Pacific that's pushing wind from the sea toward China and the topography of the region has what he calls a channeling effect. And Jen says this Chinese rainstorm has something in common with the rain that's been hammering Europe leaving more than 120 people dead there. What a Weber in general in the atmosphere is increasing. Because of global warming and more water in the air means more rainfall a lot more. In some cases, China has a good system.

And the recipient would get a little notification and they could choose to either accept or deny that offer, And then if they accepted it, they would have three days to, you know, listen to the media before it disappeared from their device, and they also had a limit of listening to it three times. And hearing that you might think well, was there to be snarky about? Well, the snark wasn't about the capability. It was the name that Microsoft gave to it. Microsoft called it squirting. The lackluster sales of the Zune ultimately led to Microsoft deciding to stop development and production on the zoom in 2011, the company continued to support the Zune software service, which allowed you know existing ZOON users toe listen to songs they had purchased through Microsoft's and stuff or they could listen to a catalog of streaming music for a monthly fee. But all of that got shut down in 2015. And while Microsoft would you move users over from their service to a new service, the Groove Music Service Not all the copyright licenses made that shift. The library of the Zune universe was different from the groove universe, so that wasn't great. And then a lot of Zune users found themselves unable to listen to music that they had previously purchased on the Zune platform. And it was also a reminder that the media model we have these days where we don't really have copies of media typically We normally access the media through streaming services. That means that there can come a time where we can't access that stuff anymore because of licensing issues.

"Ft one on this Thursday morning time for us to go toe. Actually, AUSTIN, Texas with everybody. Senior national correspondent Michael Barry Controlling my tour at the Bower show, Michael the We're hearing more and more about the Capitol Hill riot on January this six more hearings that we're talking about. Yeah, we had. I believe if my count is correct, we're up around. Six of these hearings that have happened so far over the span of a couple of weeks and yesterday was The chance for the Pentagon to get into play here, and that's kind of what we saw was more finger pointing, Jimmy, you know that's going to come as a shock. But the commanding general of the District of Columbia's national Guard say His troops were ready to go. They would be ready at a 20 minute clip in 20 minutes, they would be fully armed, fully uniforms ready to get out there and assist and it took more than three hours and 19 minutes for the Defense Department to give them a green light. That's according to the commanding general. He said that at one point during the afternoon what he heard back from military leaders, including the brother of ex Trump National Security adviser Michael Flynn, was that And I know we've heard this before. As well. Deploying troops would not be good optics that on some level that would certainly alienate the rioters and make them perhaps more violent. Hey, also, the commanding officer also indicated that up until the day before I'm January 5th. He had had authorization on a general level from the Pentagon to deploy troops as he saw fit like he did during the summer when they had black lives matter protests he was able to use his own authorization to deploy troops when he needed to, But literally the day before these riots happened in Washington, D. C. He received a memo that indicated that things had changed that he would need to reach out to the Defense Department and to the Army in order to get authorization to deploy troops. Now, so that had changed. He considered that to be something that was both stunning and unprecedented at that point in time, So you know the other problem here. Jimmy is it with the people? The transition between the Trump Administration and the Biden administration is some of the people who were actually responsible for decision making here are are no longer in their positions, and that's something that Congress at least yesterday indicated. They were going to have to try to bring those people back. You had Senator Blunt indicate that he was going to have to have questions for acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller for former Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, that they're going to have to bring them in and try to get some answers because everybody virtually with the exception of this commanding general for the D C National guard, everybody else was sort of in these filling positions. And so they couldn't tell you why the decision was made or who made the decision. For what reason? They can just tell you what decision was made, right? And, uh, well, those that have been arrested What? I'm being charged with what we know about this. We gotta get a couple 100. People arrested. Correct that is correct. And more still, according to the FBI that are being um, searched for they're asking for the nation's help in trying to determine who they are. Who? They why they where they came from who they are and how we can bring them in. That's what they're looking to do here. But as far as the rioters themselves, they're a couple of different. I'm gonna have to have depending on what footage they have of these individuals. Some of them are, you know, everybody who broke in were inside the capital. That is a restricted area that you don't have access to. So there's that element. Were there any damage that was created? Were you responsible for the damage Getting into the building that part of it? Do they have footage of you actually Involved in some violence against a police officer, Capitol police officer or somebody else. It kind of runs the gamut here of all of those different types of things. As far as the initial charges, go on, where we stand from those initial charges going forward, we've yet to see some people have have have stepped up and said that, Yeah, they should not have been there. They should not have done what they've done, but they were simply there following the group mentality. I don't know if that lets anybody off the hook for breaking and entering into a federal building. They were supposed to have no access to All right. Do we know what the most serious charges thus far? Mm hmm. I don't know. I'm not exactly sure I I don't want to say for sure What I have heard of details seem to be at this point in time they are looking into certainly, you know, some of the more violent elements of The battling with police officers, whether it's attacking an officer with a flagpole or something along those lines. There is still the battle as to what happened to the one Capitol police officer with who was killed and stories initially said that he was bludgeoned by a fire extinguisher and then later seemed to be rescinded. I mean their details that we still don't know because Technically, according to the FBI, those invasion investigations are still under way. And it may mean trying to track down who those individuals are to bring them up for charges. God Hey, Michael. Thank you Appreciate we'll talk tomorrow. A good day. Now stay safe, Jimmy. You two.

Give us the elevator pitch for give people money. For a book about universal basic income, which is the idea that government would give everybody every citizen money something like a pension payment for all. And so, you know, some of the arguments of this have to do with, you know, efficiency in the welfare state, and that kind of thing, but I think that this sort of deeper philosophical point is that perhaps inside of abundance where the real problems have to do instead with equity, and who has what perhaps providing this kind of a uniform and universal form as of social insurance. Jeremy I'll give you a show shit describing as briefly as you can the central idea of your book new power. You know, we always really book about how you exercise power in the twenty th century in a world that is chaotic and hyper connected, and our argument is that in order to exercise power. Now, you need to understand how as a parent. So if you think of the metaphor that we draw the contrast between what we call pal. How currency kind of how we traditionally exercise. You hold it up. You spend it and the kind of power that you flea control. But that is a surge of energy based on Mesler dissipation in the question. Then is how do you deploy and harness that energy? And what was saying around the world today is many of the organizations and leaders that are kind of coming out on top that are in woods, mastering new pal? Thank you. Both both excellent books that crystallize an urgent issues. This price will go to the book that provides the most compelling and enjoyable insights into modern.

All of the mutterings about NATO Brexit have instantly made traveling abroad, more expensive prospects, but all is not lost. There are still things savvy traveler can do to boost their holiday cash and joining me to explain how. Is FDA money reporter, Amy Williams, welcome Amy. So just briefly tell us what's happened to the pound this week. It's been having a torrid time. It's dropped to below one year or twelve cents, and it's hit its weakest point against the dollar in more than eleven months. So really not good if you're hoping to go on Holiday Inn, haven't yet. Got your holiday cash out. Yes. Unfortunately, I am one of those people. Shan't you guys with Louis the end of September, which I am hoping there might be some recovery before then. But for people like us, we oversee need to get the best possible deal on our cash to counteract somewhat the slide in starting. Can you take us through some of the best and also the worst options for Dina? Let's start with the worst because everyone's in agreement on this. Do not get your cash from the airport, and if you do do it, then you have to order in advance, which I'm told is slightly better in terms of fees and charges in conversion rates than just walking up and getting it from one of the many vendors you'll get at Gatwick or Heathrow, and to don't do that. And instead you can get a prepaid card which is one of the better options. And so some of the challenge of banks like monzo or Starling Bank revelead provide the best ones to you will have to open a Bank account with these guys to get one if that God's that this is a very quick process and that's says, selling point there online up based services, very. Quick to set of Bank accounts and get your your car posted to you. So that's one of one of the better options. If you don't like that idea, you can't do the old fashioned thing of ordering some currency in infants and getting it posted to the post office or marks and Spencer, or places like that that will get money in for you. And those retailers will invariably have better rates than a high street Bank. We found in previous research. So I'm a little bit on how those cards actually works. So if you were to fly one of these challenges Bank accounts that you mentioned when you use the called abroad, the money, as I understand it is converted the spot rate for the MasterCard or visa. A no markup is generally applied to that and with some of them, you can also take money out of a cashpoint without paying any fees. Whereas k. banks charge about two and a half, three percent of the valley of the transaction. That's right. And they'll, they'll view much but rate and there are there are also prepaid cards. The load cash on in advance. So companies like Fairfax offer these, which you don't have to open a Bank account access you. It's like a top car that you put the money on advance, and then you can take it out of the cash point of view, really good rate for doing it. And then some other traps to watch out for when you were broad, particularly when you're handed a payment terminal to type in your pin number. Oh yes. The dynamic currency conversion that hits lots of travelers. Something I've just learned about. So you're sitting in your restaurants, you won't pay the Bill. You won't spend your debit card. They hand you the terminal, and they ask you on the terminal, whether you'd like to pay in euros will assume you're in Europe or pounds, and it's very tempting to click pounds because then you can sort of work on your head how much it is and whether you're in budget or not. But if you do that, you tend to be hit with a massive hidden charge and you do you just you just don't wanna go there. So always paying local currency and keep in conceal time have certain. Fairfax did some research for us a couple of weeks, gay. I think they said the the average conversion rate set by the retailer will the restaurant owner is normally way worse than the two and a half, three percent you'd have to pay with your Bank..
