Why a dedicated Zoom device makes sense
"You'll recall that earlier this week I had a lot of fun with that new Microsoft Eighty, five inch dedicated device for teams meetings. It's only twenty two thousand dollars little much for my budget I. Don't know about you but it's been a week for dedicated video meeting devices after that Microsoft announcement though I gotTa love, Amazon's answer which came later in the week, a dedicated ten inch unit for two hundred, fifty dollars the echo show ten, which lets you go through Alexa to connect to zoom skype or Alexa to Alexa direct calls two hundred and fifty dollars. Twenty two, thousand dollars I think I'll take the cheaper one Alex, thank you. I think these dedicated devices when they're priced, right make a lot of sense i. mean think of the kids were stuck at home taking school on their laptops. Now, they could have one more unit just displaying the teacher and lessons which would give their hands free for schoolwork and no taking on the laptop make sense for those of you who are taking meetings all day. The same issue applies isn't it hard to take notes when your laptop screen is filled with Speaker video windows. Plus this way you wouldn't have to worry Webcam placement after all his best to be at eye level which most people ignore and not have the Webcam looking up your Chin that requires putting the laptop atop of a bunch of books which gives you a better look, but it makes it really hard to type. So the savvy speaker or student would have to constantly move the books around that dedicated service on the desk would solve the issue living atop the. Books that could just stay there and not have to be moved around. So Amazon has the echo show ten, which will be out later this year it'll let you connect the Webcam to the TV via the hundred and twenty dollar fired TB Cube device. So so maybe it won't be watching eighty five inches how about fifty or sixty sounds pretty good p particularly when you consider that you can buy a good fifty inch these days for about three hundred dollars. Now, the Amazon solutions won't be available until later this year. But if you have a facebook portal video chat device, you can use the dedicated unit now to connect to zoom because the update started rolling out today. The portal started one, hundred, twenty, nine dollars, and they're available in three sizes at eight, inch, ten inch or fifteen point, six inch. The addition that connects the TV which is called. Portal. TV is not yet supported for the zoom calls meanwhile, that's not all folks next week on Wednesday Google holds its annual fall hardware product event where it's expected to unveil a new top of the line smartphone and updated streaming device and a new take on the nest home hub video display unit last year's nest. Didn't work with zoom or initially even with Google's meat though it does now but not zoom zooms coming later, and I know I can pretty much rest assured that the new Google video display unit we'll be working with zoom and hopefully working well
Review: amazing TCL/Roku TV for $229
"Graham here with a question when the last time you bought yourself a new. Year after year. You know I've been amazed at the falling prices of sets that would garner seven hundred dollars two thousand dollars just a few years ago, and I just picked up a new forty three inch, T. C. L. set with roku built in for two hundred and twenty nine dollars. Two hundred and twenty nine dollars for a display that offers four K. HD, resolution and HDR. But forget about the acronyms I'm just amazed at what you can get now for two hundred bucks. I bought the TV for a non traditional reason to use it as a giant computer monitor to watch videos that I have edited on my laptop on my little sixteen inch laptop. So I paid fifteen dollars for a ten foot HD my cord. That's the Court of course that connects the TV to other devices and I connected it to my apple macbook pro. It went directly to the TV. I didn't have to spring for an additional twenty five to fifty dollars for a separate. Roku streaming player right so I saved money. The footage looks so great at forty three inches I had to wonder why anybody would go out and spend big bucks on a computer monitor a quick look on Amazon in a forty three inch LG monitor is upwards of six hundred bucks wow. So the other thing once I sit up the TV. I never had to plug in antenna cable box or anything defined oodles of programming. All I needed was a WIFI signal. roku screen name and Password and suddenly I had five hundred APPs available on the platform. A lot of them wanted money from me, but there was many that didn't there was so much free stuff I couldn't believe it. I mean I come from a generation that's used to connecting things to the TV whether that be streaming box whether that be an antenna whether that be a cable box. I mean this is amazing. I can act the nothing. so the APPS. There's the usual Pandora Hulu Amazon Prime Video Netflix's s on and on two big ones missing Hbo Max in NBC's Peacock. Financial negotiations, and then there's the roku channel which is a homegrown collection that supported movies and TV shows mostly on the older side. Batman bewitched movies like the perfect storm, dogs and cats. Crimson tide. And live news channels and these are really good from ABC. NBC and CBS. Accord cutters dream no cable needed. All you need is Wifi and you get more stuff than you'd ever Wanna see without connecting anything. So how cool is that? The picture quality I would rate as a ten for a two hundred dollar TV or five on the overall scale. If you're comparing it to the best of breed leads a fifty inch led from Samsung cost eight hundred dollars for the TCL set. You'll have to sit right in front of it. Turn the lights on low and not be on the sides and that way the pitcher will look its best for a savings of six hundred dollars I can do that.
U.S. Air Force Launches Contest to Replace the B-52 Bomber’s Engine
"Here to talk about bombers. There is news just breaking as of May nineteenth the US Air Force kicked off a three way competition to reengineer. Its entire seventy six aircraft. Be Fifty two fleet and the the competitions going to be underway. They just released a request for proposals. Steve can you talk about what the Air Force is looking for? And what that means for the companies involved. Yes so on Tuesday evening or Tuesday late afternoon the Air Force released the our fee to start Step two of the engine source election the replacement for the Beef at T.F. Thirty Three's which You know design. That goes back about sixty years. And you've got three companies in the competition. Rolls Royce with the VR seventy five. Which for this competition. They're calling the effluent thirty We also have the engine. That's on the global six thousand that The Air Force is flying as as the e eleven As a communications relay. Pratt Whitney is competing with the w eight hundred which is another business jet engine and you've got Ge that has said that they are looking at offering either or both of the CF. Thirty four engine actually started out with the. A ten In still in service with the ten. But it's gone onto power of regional jets and Also it's passport engine. Which is the propulsion system on the bombard? Da Global Seven thousand business jet. So those are the those are the three competitions with air forces looking for is a new propulsion system. That as what what they say is basically the T.F. Thirty-three has kind of come to the end of its life beyond twenty thirty. They don't really see. You're very viable way of sustaining it. And keeping it in service. But of course they've decided that the B fifty two will continue operating beyond twenty fifty so they need something under the wings of those aircraft. Keep them flying and they're looking for something that it can extend the range by twenty five percent that can add a bunch of loiter time to the B fifty two's mission set and They won't cost too much and that they can integrate as quickly as possible. So that's that's where we are with the competition Steve Guy. Can you tell us a little bit of it? Gives us a little more sense of the engines? That will be competing. Hard High State Yeah I it's fascinating to me that this is competition is underway. It's it's really difficult to believe that in the early two thousands that they looked at this in the nineteen seventies even looked. This goes back a long way. Pratt and Whitney originally proposed a you know of the upgrades the T.F. Thirty three which courses based on the original J. Three engine that Pratt went. They developed some back in the in the late. Fifties and early sixties. Rolls Royce of course came really close more recently With an offbeat till Evan Option in the mid. Nineteen nineties with with Boeing as a team So it's been an ongoing thing but that was was four engines to replace AIDS so this is different. Because you've got eight engines. Replace eight engine. So how could that possibly work? So the the reason it can work is that over the last fifty years which is really the length of the of this program The original engine. If it's hard to imagine this but the actual fan amit served Pratt and Whitney engine that the the one that's on the inevitable at thirty three is about fifty inches the inlet itself and yet the bypass ratio. Which is you know the key parameter ready for the performance of this Is Only one point. Four three two one but all of the engines that nabbing pushed through for this replacement here. We are fifty years later. They're all between four point. Two to five point five to one bypass ratio but basically in the same diamonds and that reflects the fact that all those cores of shrunk at in you've got much more efficient fan flow and that so here you are bringing in these twenty-first-century engines however just to clarify that One of those engines at state mentioned. Jeez pushing forward with the CF thirty four DASH sandwiches one option. That engine actually will be this year celebrating. I believe it's twenty eight anniversary so it's it's not a near engine itself. Likud's relative to what it's replacing it still a youngster. Really Oli others estate mentioned on new business jet engines up just a little bit of sort of back of the envelope. Calculation and based on the published data that we've got. It's quite interesting. You look at the actual weight that bear way to each of these engines and do a quick so a calculation it at the moment they the tip thirty three. The ship said of bear engines weighs about thirty five thousand pounds. That's just mean a mechanical gear on on the on the pylon not including the case sings or even sometimes accessories. If you look at the calculated waits for the others the passport which is the other g engine would actually weigh slightly more about thirty six thousand the prod engine the Peterloo eight hundred which state mentioned which is the The J. Six hundred five hundred engine is sly is actually the lowest just under twenty five thousand. Pansy got an interesting calculation going on that but basically they're all within about three inches of each other in terms of inlet diameter all within a few hundred pounds thrust so it's very complicated competition and a very interesting calculus that the Athol is GonNa have to go through.
Is the Tasmanian Tiger Really Extinct?
"You've no doubt heard of the Tasmanian Devil or seen an animated version the whirling dervish in looney tunes cartoons. But what about the Tasmanian Tiger? It's actually not even a tiger at all instead a marsupial known as the Thilo seen and it's thought to have gone extinct almost one hundred years ago but did it really. While many experts believed the last known thylacine died at. Australia's Hobart Zoo in nineteen thirty. Six others ardently claimed that the animals still exists because they've spotted one or more in the wild. We spoke by email with Kathryn medlock. Honorary Curator of vertebrate zoology the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. She said the international Australian and state definition of an extinct species is that there has been no reliable evidence of the species for fifty years by this definition. They are officially extinct species although designated as officially extinct. It's difficult to prove that something is not there as opposed to proving it is. There are many cases of species being rediscovered. Many years after supposed- extinction we also spoke by email with Rick Schwartz an animal ambassador for California's San Diego Zoo. He explained that quote since the Nineteen Thirties. There have been a few claims Tasmanian. Tigers have been seen for brief moments in the wild however no substantial evidence has proven they exist at this time we also spoke by email with Neil waters of the thylacine awareness group of Australia. Who started disagrees a quote? Do I think the animals extinct? No because I've seen too and been coughed slash barked at by one in South Australia. In two thousand eighteen. There have been more than seven thousand documented sightings of Silas scenes or animals that appear to be Thilo scenes but the majority of those sightings on Mainland Australia. According to the scientific formula applied to mammals though it is extinct and has been since nineteen thirty six for fifty years. The animal was considered rare and endangered. This fact inconveniently keeps the animal as a recent extinction rather than an ancient one. We should lose hope over and forget about. Let's step back a bit. What exactly is Tasmanian. Tiger? Schwartz explained that it's not a big cat at all. He said the name. Tiger most likely was given to the animal by the European settlers due to the light stripes that went from the spine down each side on the hind end of the animal. Most people agree that the Tasmanian Tiger looks like a medium sized short haired dog with subtle stripes on hindquarters and the base of its tail. Tail was thick and muscular at the base. More like a kangaroo's tail than a dog's tail colorations were described as light brown and Yellow Brown with Darker Brown stripes. These animals weighed about forty five to seventy pounds. That's twenty to thirty kilos with a body length of forty to fifty inches or one hundred to one hundred and twenty five centimeters with that tail. Adding another twenty to twenty five inches or fifty to sixty centimeters most stood about two feet tall or two thirds of a meter at the shoulder. Schwartz said in our modern times we usually think of marsupials and Kangaroos however the Tasmanian Tiger had a number of unique characteristics being dog like medium sized carnivore. That's also Marsupial it. Size and features were more similar to that of a small wolf or large Fox. Combine that with the striped pattern on the hind end and thick muscular tail. Similar toy kangaroo. You've got a pretty unique animal and water said when you had a close look at the prince we find. You will see time and time again. The broad S- play of the toes and the Claude drag impressions from the massive fixed clause on the animals four feet. The reason they're split wide and not like a dog is because they don't have webbing between their toes their front feet also still acts similar to hands as they can both hop like a kangaroo or run on all fours as a result many of the prince appear that the front feet are literally grabbing the ground as they dig it on curves or high speed when pursuing prey when Europeans first colonized Australia. The Tasmanian Tiger was rarely seen the animals started to become increasingly blamed for tax on cheap however so private companies and the Tasmanian government attempted to curb population by establishing bounties exchange for dead violence scenes adding to their eventual extinction was the sad fact that Australia's colonisation eroded the thylacines habitat by the nineteen twenty s sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger in the wild became extremely rare and in nineteen thirty. A farmer shot and killed the second. To last known wild Tasmanian Tiger the final by Lesean was captured in the Florentine Valley in Nineteen thirty three and transferred to the Hobart Zoo on September seventh. Nineteen thirty six. The animal known as Benjamin died in captivity black and white footage recorded in nineteen thirty three would become historically significant as images of the final scene in nineteen thirty seven the Tasmanian animals and birds protection board a later to become the national park. Service launched a series to determine where thylacines still might be found. Medlock said unfortunately living animal was not discovered. The final search in the series was into the chain river area in Western. Tasmania on the search. Sometimes seen footprints were discovered and creek bed. The original plaster casts of these prints are lodged in the Tasmanian Museum. The Tasmanian Museum doesn't receive citing reports. And we don't have the expertise to assess them. This is done by the Department of Primary Industries Water and environment they continue to record reported sightings and take them seriously often however sightings films and photographs are released to the media through the people who are reporting them rather than a government body over the years. There have been several instances photographs and films purported to be thylacines in the wild but none have been verified as genuine evidence of an animal waters however contends that there have been dozens of credible sightings of Thilo scenes. He said actually hundreds of them too many to name one in particular was a bus load of tourists in Western Australia. Back in the nineteen eighties. Who All saw the animal at close range in broad daylight whilst on a wildflower tour the fact that we find headless Kangaroos. All over. His failure is a key piece of physical evidence that these animals still persist. But nobody to know about it. Because it's always blamed on either hunters or Satanists by. Ill informed people who don't understand how these animals feed waters has been working tirelessly to raise public awareness of this animals continued existence for the past five years meeting dozens of witnesses and collecting thousands of statements regarding sightings of this animal in. Tasmania and across mainland Australia. His work appears in the two thousand seventeen documentary living the thylacine dream which follows waters travels throughout mainland Australia. Collect evidence of predation as well as stories of sightings from witnesses who are adamant seen the thile seen both recently and historically
Earth Day with Bill McKibben
"Hey this is bill mckibben. I've spent thirty years working hard for climate justice. Sorry not sorry I wanNA start with trying to get a clear eyed look at where we really stand with climate change today and also what's happening in the US versus what's happening around the world. Most of the news about climate change is pretty bad. Wrote the first book about this thirty years ago. Nineteen eighty nine. A book called the end of Nature. At that time we were offering warning about what was going to happen if we didn't do anything. We didn't do anything so now. Now those things are happening. We've raised the temperature of the earth about one degree Celsius so far and that's been enough to melt about half the Shiites in the Summer Arctic. The oceans are about thirty percent more acidic than they were forty years ago sea levels begun to rise we see huge disruptions to the planet hydrological system the way the water moves around the earth. That's because Warm Air holds more water vapor than coal. She get more. Evaporation and arid areas and with that. Evaporation in that drought comes horrific fires of the kind. We've seen in California or most recently in Australia where we think a couple of billion animals died of course those seven or eight weeks of blazes. Once that waters evaporated up into the air. It comes down again and increasingly. It comes down and kind of gully washing storms. We've just come through. The what is twelve months on record in American history. We've seen the biggest storms and our country's history including the champion of all time Hurricane Harvey which trump something like fifty inches of rain. You can vision that on parts of Houston so this is the new normal now. That's a one degree increase Celsius and global temperature. The problem is working on a path to increase the temperature about three degrees Celsius. A little more right now even if we kept the promises that we made in Paris which of course our country is keeping and that won't be three times as bad as one degree. It'll be many times worse than that. The damage we're doing now is exponential not linear because we're going pass tipping points so that's the really tough news if there's good news and there is it's that the engineers have done their job as well as the scientists. The politicians have done. There's badly you know In the last ten years they've dropped the price. Solar Panel Wind Turbine something like ninety percent. And that means that the cheapest way to generate power around the planets now usually the cleanest way and that gives us way out if we chose take it if we mobilized like we did at World War Two or something then we could make enormous progress very quickly. We're not doing that. That's why we're building movements to try and force that kind of action and we're seeing now you know we're seeing the effects right. We're seeing these fires. We're seeing weather unlike anything we've seen in the past and it still seems like there's people that just don't see this as a critical issue. What do you think could change their minds? How do we get people understand the magnitude of this problem? The first thing to say is one needs to have swallow amount of sympathy for people because for the last thirty years when now no the oil industry has waged an all out incredibly expensive. Incredibly effective dish information's paying to get people to disbelieve climate science. You know they went and hired the same people who used to work for the tobacco industry and they spun the same set of livestock. Science was clear that we didn't know for sure on when as great investigative reporting over the last five years now makes clear the oil companies knew everything there was to know back in the nineteen eighties. You know they understood what was happening. Exxon had great scientists. The product was Qurban. Of course they were going to study it and when scientists told them with great accuracy. How much and how fast it was going to warm. They were believed. Exxon started building. All its drilling rigs to compensate for the rise and she level they knew was coming. They didn't tell the rest of US instead. They embarked on this very expensive and very powerful campaign of lying so I have some sympathy for people who were taken in by that. Why the good news is their number. So fallen dramatically with about seventy percent of Americans. Now who understand that? There's a problem the polling in the Democratic primary shoes. It's either the number one or number two issue back and forth with climate change voters minds and that's true for all voters Republican Democrat Independent. When you ask them below the age of thirty young people really get in our leading on this issue so I think the problem at this point is less trying to persuade the remaining thirty percent who are ideologues and unlikely to get persuaded. I mean if you spent the last couple of decades marinating and rush limbaugh. You'd be resistant to clear thinking to the challenge. Instead is to get some part of that. Seventy percent really engaged in the fight. We don't need all of them. We can get five. Six seven percent of Americans really engaged in this battle. What I think we can win it and change the political and economic ground rules. But it's GonNa take that kind of hype.

"fifty inches" Discussed on WBT Charlotte News Talk
"Even though he doesn't make a lot of money job that I enjoy the even I don't get paid that large of a salary. I enjoy it. And I have fun in its passionate passionate mine that. Paycheck, however, hardly matches. He's devotion my salary right now is a little bit about forty thousand dollars a year get coffees able to keep his family out of debt and for seven years. His wife Tracy has been able to stay with their kids. Anything we have besides the house, it's ours. And that's right. The two cars new refrigerator washer and dryer. Even this fifty inch flat screen TV's have all been paid for. That's a story about Danny forgive that ran on CBS this morning. He's written a book called the wealthy teacher a success story. I think that's worth hearings. Have Danny is on the line with us sedan? A you're a starving teacher in debt. And now, you're wealthy. Well, actually, never deep in debt. So that's kind of one of our keys, but we just you know, my wife was was a schoolteacher now was a schoolteacher when we got married. We kinda had a plan that we wanted her to be able to stay at home when we had children and fortunate enough that we had two kids. And she was able to stay home for eight years all living on my teacher salary at that time about forty two thousand dollars a year or so we were able to do it. And then after my youngest was in first grade Tracey my wife got back into teaching but are working part time. I'm still a schoolteacher and we managed to do well financially. I'll get nosy here. So are you still just making forty some odd thousand a year or have things gotten better in teaching there? They have gotten a little better. I think my salary this year, it's up to forty nine thousand. So, you know, not not breaking the Bank for sure the only debt that we have is our mortgage have an emergency fund in place investor. They were gonna retire with decent nest egg. But you know, to me, I think most importantly is that we live wealthy life. And notice I didn't say know town of my book is a wealthy teacher, not the millionaire teacher. So I'm not saying we're millionaires. But I think so many people they associate being wealthy with having a lot of money, and I know plenty of people that have a lot more money in their Bank accounts than I do. And I wouldn't consider them wealthy. I kind of think having wealth is he ability to do those things in life that you feel that you will put on earth to do and still able to have money leftover to do some kind of fun things into be able to take care of yourself. Well, let's talk about that for saying what you say, you're wealthy or have a wealthy lifestyle. What does that mean? Exactly. I I enjoy teaching and I feel God put me on earth to be a teacher, even though teacher. Don't make a lot of money. That's part of being wealthy that you get to do those things that you feel you were called to do on a daily basis, but something happened last year my life that really showed why it's important to kind of had that financial margin at the start of the school year. Last August, my dad who is six years old at the time had a stroke, and then he was in a wheelchair to bed. He was coherent. But just physically limited, and because we have the financial margin in place. I actually was able to slash December. I started working part time. So I worked half the up until ten thirty in the morning, and then I would come home, and I would spend the rest of the day with him and driving him to therapies and doing all these things unfortunately towards the end of June he passed away, but you can't put a price on the time that I was able from December until then that I was able to kind of be his caretaker and help take care of him and helped my mom and alleviate that from her that that isn't something I can put into numbers of what it meant. But it's priceless. And I think to me we were able to do. That because we had financial margin in place. And that's the thing you never know what life is going to throw at you. But when you kind of have your finances in order, and you have some savings built-up, then sometimes you're able to do things that you feel called the do. Well, let's probe that for a minute because I can imagine. There are people listening to this going way way way way, this guy made forty thousand a year and somehow stashed enough Bank to work part-time take care of his dad and pay the power Bill and the light Bill in the mortgage. How do you do that? Well, first off when we got married we bought our very small home. We bought a two bedroom one bathroom house. It was in our price range of that time. We lived in Florida. And then we've always just live way below our means so Tracy was a teacher when we got married and she taught four years before staying home. But during those four years that we had those two incomes coming in. We tried to just live off of one and then just save the rest for life. And then after eight years of staying at home Bank account was kind of going down a little bit as you can imagine. So then when she got back into the classroom. We still tried to live off that one salary and put as much aside as we could you're right. I mean, even now making forty nine thousand dollars a year two dollars. So I mean, it's it's expensive. It's not cheap. But you know for us. We've always tried to live below our means, and I think that is the big key that Niger I mentioned to you before the interview. So my car today. I mean, this is real drive into school this morning. My car died it actually died on the side of the road. It was running and then it died. But here it is my car is sixteen and a half years old now has a hundred and seventy five thousand miles on it. I haven't had a car payment and over fourteen years. So when you think about that the average car payment is around five hundred dollars a month six thousand dollars a year. So I haven't had a car payment and fourteen and a half years just live below our means, and that is the way we had financial margin in place. Now, how did you come to this philosophy? I mean, I can just imagine when you married your wife and said, I want you to marry me, but we're gonna live in a real small house. We're not going to eat out will eat a lot of beans. Weenies, but we're going to save money. I mean, have you always been that way? Did she know what she was getting into? She kinda did tore thing. Her lifestyle was a little bit different before meeting me when they had a lot more stuff, but they weren't as happy, whereas my family, I was raised, you know, by mom and dad were very frugal. And then my grandmother as well was great example for us of never made a lot of money, but my brother, and I growing up we never felt like we lacked anything because we did a lot of family stuff together the keyword. There is things it seems like a lot of us just want to buy a lot of stuff. It sounds as though you were willing even your family to do without a lot of stuff. It seems like a disciplined lifestyle. That's all it is. I mean, when you think about it personal finance managing money is pretty easy spend less than you are. But no is a very powerful word. And I think, you know, for a lot of people what gets them into trouble. I think I read a study at something like eighty percent of people don't feel engaged at work. So I think of all these people sitting in traffic driving to work, and you go to a job that you really don't enjoy. You don't like. So then when you get home, oh it to myself. I put up with this. So I'm going to buy boy. And you thought jewelry cars, close whatever it may be. And it does make you feel good for a little bit. And then you're stuck in the cycle where you're constantly buying something to make you feel happy. And I think we realized from from a young age that things. Yeah, they make you happy for a while. But then they get old and then you're not happy anymore. So it's more about the experiences and once you get to do on a daily basis. That's where the true happiness comes from. So if you were going to give somebody some advice, then who's making forty five thousand dollars a year, and they have car payments, and they hardly save anything. What would you tell them to do to get started? This is what works so well for Tracy, and I when we got married, and this was back in two thousand we walked around, and we wrote down everything we spent for one month, you may want to do too much three months, whatever it takes. But we were able to. To analyze exactly where money was going. I can give generic tips. Okay. Don't go by Starbucks lots. As don't go to the movies, whatever. But not everyone does that. When you write down what you spend. It is personal at the end of the month. You can analyze it and say, oh, we went to the movies five times or we did this, and then you can see areas that you can cut back on. And then in addition to that what we did is we set aside cash for entertainment and eating out. And then once the cash was gone, we didn't spend any more. So we would go to the ATM every weeks pull out that exact amount in cash and NATs was our spending money for the week because for many of us we have an emotional attachment to the green stuff it's harder to spend that than it is to swipe piece of plastic through a machine. So I think those are probably the two biggest keys that I would have for someone starting on their financial journey. So now, you wrote a book about all of this. Tell me about what prompted that came out beginning this year, the wealthy teacher lessons for prospering on. Schoolteacher salary. I really I've never taken a finance class in my life. But I haven't figured out. And that's kind of what I want to show other people that you know, what it is kindergarten teacher can do it then you can too. I'm inspired maybe even on a radio salary. Danny. Thank you, Danny kofsky known as the wealthy teacher, not a millionaire but wealthy as you heard.

It's going to be around the eighty eighty two degrees each afternoon, then we'll be watching Florence and that storm is like the ram into North Carolina in the wait probably around Thursday. And if. If the computer models, right? It's just going to be total devastation because storm will stall and caused flooding rains. It'll be a multibillion dollar storm. If that occurs. Alternative of moving north westward toward our area. It would mean that the rain would be aggravated at the end of the week. We start all over again. But the models are not showing doing that. So right now though, there is great concern. I know the already started evacuating some people in the Carolinas in parts anyway. Well, I will be the higher ties already. There's some flooding owing long at each high tide along Virginia North Carolina coast, and that will worsen rip currents and things like that.

Is there a a fine point yet on where it'll make landfall right now, it looks like it's aiming for somewhere around Wilmington, Myrtle Beach. But let's also remember sue thousand miles away still. So it saw plenty of time to change direction and had had someplace else, but all the models sort of converging on that area. As being the most. Thank senior meteorologist Elliot Abrams sand. Yeah.
