What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?
"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since
Amazon Rivian Van Deliveries Begin in Los Angeles
"Have some news from ribian and amazon. Which of course partnered for a delivery van for amazon which they expect to purchase about one hundred thousand of over the next decade amazon announced today that they have started customer deliveries in a test capacity with the first versions of these electric fans from ribian in parts of los angeles. They also say that they expect to expand to fifteen additional cities this year and they expect to have ten thousand of these delivery vehicles on the road quote as early as two thousand twenty two and quote so obviously a lot of flexibility in that statement but as far as these i vehicles go they say that quote. The current fleet of vehicles was built at riviera studio in plymouth michigan and can drive up to one hundred fifty miles on a single charge and quote rabin's main factory is in normal illinois so out expect. That's probably where they intend to produce this fan volume so these are not production. Vehicles yet
Project Car of the Week: 1969 Dodge Dart
"This week's projet carve. The week was the nineteen sixty nine. Dodge dart posted on the moped hunter. Facebook page on tuesday january fifth at nine a. m. let's read the ad nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine dodge dart sixteen thousand five hundred dollars. Nineteen sixty nine. Dodge dart very well built four forty. Tci seven twenty seven dana sixty with four fifty six in spool fiberglass front rear deck lead from bumper. Just put down the direct floor. Liner front end has been completely rebuilt. Everything has been changed including the torsion bars retires or hoosiers that don't have fifty miles on them. Amnesty distributors six. Al box brand new holly xp carb too much to list completely rewired with ron. Francis wiring also have the box with the extra wiring for other applications plus instructions also frontiers new and converted over to kelsey hayes. Four piston calipers shocks in front or new shocks rear. Our new drag shocks car is very fast. Title status is clean. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking here he goes again with another dart drag car. And you're right. I can't help that. I love dodge darts and i can't help that. I love drag car projects. They're just cool. I really do enjoy them. I think they're awesome. And i think that great project cars and this car just happens to be another dart. The reason why. I like this one so much is because it's pretty much ready to go to me. It looks like it just needs a few finishing touches and you're off to the races. I should say that like with any race car project. You'd go through this thing from top to bottom. But just based on what i see. I think it's a great candidate for a drag car project especially at under twenty grand. I mean this thing sitting sixteen five. I think there might be a little bit of room but you know just looking at the car and comparing it to other things that i've seen out there for maybe half the price the seems like a good bye. I will say this though. It may be kind of a handful on the street. And that's only because of the spool and the rear end ratio for those of you. That don't know a spool is a fully locked rear diff unlike locking diff the school locked at all times. So when you're turning you're gonna feel the rear end grabbing and gripping the road because the wheels will be unnaturally turning at the same rate of speed so it's kind of impractical parking taking turns and stuff. It might feel a little bit weird almost like if you're a four wheel drive on the street you know and you crank the wheel all the way and you try to turn. You're gonna feel that rear end like skipping almost The other issue that i saw was the four fifty six years. I think it would be really fun. Obviously light to light on the street. But i'd imagine if you're on the freeway a lot of could be an issue but that said you know a lot of people run these gears all the time even on the street so i guess it just depends on the type of driving. You'll be doing and if you're willing to put up with it it might be okay if you only take the car out occasionally on the streets but at sixteen thousand five hundred you have a great headstart to a fun strip car. That can possibly be driven on the street. It's a big lakhdar with some bigs and littles also has what looks to be centerline. Auto drags on it. So that's that's a plus in my book. I love those wheels. So big and little auto drags cool in my book. It's gotta side exit exhaust aluminum radiator. It's got a nice racing shift in it. Some cheap racing seats grant steering wheel. You know this things got some potential you know does it have its flaws sher- but we can work around those and we can take this platform as you get it and then make it your own. You know there's still room to improve and you know that's sure to tickle anymore. Part theseus fancy especially mind the thing even has really bars too so if you did drive it on the street the only addition to make it even more intimidating would probably be a parachute but discards cool has a ton of potential and it sure to turn heads on both the track and the street got nice orange paint a black bumble bee stripe. It's got a giant hood scoop on the front like the old school. I don't know what you call it like a pro street hood scoop. I guess I think that's the word i'm looking for. I think that's the description i can give. But it's not the typical hood that i would like to see on a mo- par but i guess it works. I like hemi hood scoops or six. Pack hood scoops. I think those are cool But it's got four. It's got the fiber last trunk so it's got four pins on that to hold it down Like i said it's got the whealy bars so cut that bad ass aesthetic to

A Conversation with Whitney Johnson
"Whitney. Welcome to the show andy. I am delighted to be here. I'm excited to to talk to you. Because i liked your book a lot. So you know some and we didn't write for sales audience per se but as a lot of very sales specific stuff in there. I thought at least maybe the lens. I read it so i can't wait to chat with you about it but one thing i wanted to ask sign. Hopefully you're well. Were recording this in the midst of the the lockdown sidano omit the formalities. But we are well for asking. I mean it's one of those questions that it used to be just a nice city but it's now a real question is a real question right. What's good and you're joining us from where we live in lexington virginia so my my husband is a professor at southern virginia university which is also near virginia military institute and washington and lee. So we're about three hours driving south west of washington dc. So is that out neuronal them. Yes yes that's our closest airport is about fifty miles away. Wow okay so having lived in big cities or served doing a little more not so rural but smaller city living. It's definitely rural. We completely disrupted ourselves. I mean why give you look outside of our window in the morning we can see deer and there are cows next door to us in fact when we very first moved here. Because we've lived in boston in manhattan in large cities when we first moved here. I remember waking up one morning. And i like hitting hitting but like you know pulling my honey honey. Turn off your phone. Because it was buzzing buzzing any turnover. And he's like those. Are the cows unbend an adjustment for us. I find one. I'm away from manhattan anywhere. I go but like my visit. My sister in wisconsin. And both my wife and i get woken up by the quiet. It's like it's too quiet and it's like wait. Why are we going every week. And you're accustomed to having the noise outside all the time that are. Do you know at some level that that it's too quiet attack keeps me up. I love that looking at by the quiet. So i was gonna ask you. Are you follow soccer fan. Because you wrote that you are going to produce a reality. Tv show about sauerland america and listeners. To show that. I'm a avid soccer fan. Oh i wish. I could say that i am. I got really excited. So this This is actually almost fifteen years ago. Now where i. I was a huge american idol. Fan in a huge. So you think you can dance fan. And and i was doing a lot of work in latin america was equity analyst. And so you know. I've been to mexico fifty times to spend a lot of my doing work a lot. American one of our companies that we followed on as equity analyst was televisa which time was basically abc cbs nbc and fox combined and again this is fifteen years ago and so we thought wait. We have an opportunity here to basically do you know. Soccer meets american idol and just got so excited about the stories of that could have produced on so while. I'm not a soccer fan per se. I am a cinderella story fan and i just thought that that could have been an amazing august show to have produced. I wanna watch for sure. So the regular listeners. Get accustomed going off on soccer stuff here. Tangents everything relates to soccer. Soccer explains the world. There was a book that wrote that. So about that so I think i read that book. Actually it was a good book. Yeah yeah so Pet the author on the show. So so we're talking about transformation personal transformation you. I've really enjoyed your book. Which you've just updated and re released disrupt yourself masterless change and speed up your learning curve. So what was the original impetus. Write the book you know. That's one of those questions that its you can answer many different ways on. But let me see. If i can streamline so that we're not here all day on you know as i just mentioned i was equity analyst. Were keep merrill lynch In a focusing on stocks in latin america like televisa so like america melville and this is back in two thousand three two thousand four. I read the book. The innovators dilemma by christian at harvard. Business school and i remember reading that book and it just was in many a transformative experience. If you will. Because i was looking at wireless at the time in every single quarter america. Mobile was beating my numbers like just every time and and telmex numbers weren't so that was the wireline company. In american mobile was the wireless i read. I read innovators dilemma. I said oh. That's what's going on. Is that wireless is disrupting wireline. And i was just fascinated. That there was a s- theory that could explain to me the world and help me understand what was happening And the more. I read that book it more i started. I think maybe just because of my own personal bent started thinking. Well how does this apply to me. Like i understand. It's explained products and services in companies in countries. But i also remember having this moment in just two thousand four. And i had just had this conversation with Someone in management saying you know what really liked to try something else. I'd like to do something else attorney. I'd like to go into management kind of laughed at me. Kind of snickered. Like ov- outs nice. That's never going to happen. And i remember coming back to that book and being you know what if i wanna do whatever it is. I think i'm meant to do which i had a very vague notion. I think many of us do I'm going to have to disrupt myself. I'm gonna have to leave wall street and go do something else.

Mamalas: Building Jewish Families
"Ari and we are an interfaith family. Were proud interfaith family. I grew up in my hometown in the town that we live in now and it is a small typical southern town after college. I spent the next twelve years. Saying i'm ephraim move impact affair hope alabama ever again and i met my husband in college and he's a nice jewish boy growing in our relationship. We decided to have a jewish family and have a jewish household. And if anybody knows me. I am Type a throw myself into a commitment personality. And i went in full force converting to a new. Religion is not an easy decision. It's not like changing your hair color. From blonde to brunette it's supposed to be a fulfilment of who you are as a person and a deep desire to fulfill that part of you. And while i respect and love the traditions the values in the jewish religion and the jewish people. I personally my personal connection to judaism. Doesn't i don't have that deep desire to fulfill myself in in that way when you have children you fight for them. And i have been a staunch defender of my children's identity as jews and in the south that can sometimes be hard because it's pretty homogeneous population. But what i've come across is that it's merely mostly a lack of education. And so while i'm educating myself and what the problems that jewish people come into contact with. I'm facing it every day with my children and Being jewish in a nate part of who they are and you know. I become hanukkah every year around this time and he wants me to come in and he wants to do presentations about hanukkah even know. He's the only jewish kid in his class call that why hanukkah lasts eight days soon. It was time to like the minora and say the blessing since it was the eight. What would you say have been some of the biggest challenges lack of education For some people. And you know. I don't mind educating my children's teachers of Their dietary needs certain traditions. Or why they're out on janka poor but it does become cumbersome when you're doing it all time You know. Christmas is a huge holiday down here. And it's celebrated at school and you know last year was the first time i some came home crying. Because he didn't feel represented in his schoolwork or the way. The school was decorated so Me and a couple of jewish moms went up at school way traveled in the fifty mile radius defined every hanukkah decoration at every store that we could find to decorate the school and it would it broke. It made his face light up. The representation matters it matters to children. I don't you know. See myself as a jewish mother. I see myself as a mother to jewish children. You know people joke because they they only see one side of it. They see that i'm the one as typically falls to the to the mothers who is the keeper of tradition. And i'm the one who make sure that you know the shibat candles lit in another the traditions. And i'm the one who prepares for passover cleaning in makes the seder so they always joke that you know you can work jewish than your your husband. But that's that's not the case. It's just the role that i play to ensure that my children are getting the very best jewish education and Husband is definitely the person that they follow for their their judah jewish education and their knowledge about who they are as jews. And why do we eat these two sued or are they special to our hannukah tradition And what was the miracle of the oil.

Ex-Energy Secretary Says Fixing Climate Change Is Tough, There's No Vaccine
"President-elect biden plans to change. us climate policies or rather. Pick up where they left off. Resuming efforts disrupted under the trump administration biden talks of the united states generating all its electricity by twenty. Thirty five without emitting carbon into the atmosphere. He wants the whole economy to run on clean energy by twenty fifty. If that can be done at all it will demand changes in technology so we called someone who knows the technology well. Steven chu was a recipient of a nobel prize in physics. He was also secretary of energy in president obama's administration and he says climate change makes the pandemic look simple. There will be no vaccine magical shot for climate change and it's going to have a more profound impact on the world at large if you can imagine that than what we're going through today. Steven chu says. Markets are moving in favor of cleaner energy. President trump's administration loosened fuel economy standards for cars and promoted coal but the coal industry kept dying on. Its own and car companies. Say they are ready to go back to stricter standards. Renewable energy like wind and solar is getting cheaper while oil companies are contemplating a different future. We've been interested by the news that some oil companies are forecasting peak demand Not that their production would peak but that the demand for oil is plateauing or declining in the next few years. Yes i would say it's more plateauing will be a long plateau which is not what they would have said ten years ago. It's in part due to the fact that they are into spain. Electric vehicles will become better and better and they will as they look towards the future. I think the more forward leaning oil companies are saying well essentially by twenty seventy twenty seven five. Whatever we need to be a very different business you're going to actually use oil or natural. Gas is then. The carbon can't be released into the atmosphere in past business cycles. The market has sometimes worked against renewable energy oil prices go up wind and solar lamar attractive by comparison but then oil gets very cheap as it absolutely has been during the pandemic and oil becomes much more attractive. Is there any reason to think that cycle would be broken this time. Yeah the technology is getting better. I go back to something like electric vehicles. Which for personal transportation you can imagine those at twenty twenty five thousand dollar car. That has a three hundred fifty mile range as four times less expensive to own and operate in terms of fuel and maintenance and pretend you can charge two hundred miles in five minutes. Six minutes and means the car batteries last longer than the human bladder. Which is the key criteria. I hadn't thought about that. People are going to stop for that reason. Okay go on. Yes and so. These type of batteries will be deployed so it makes much more sense. People will gravitate towards naturally. That's why the oil companies are looking towards other uses for oil natural gas particularly chemicals plastics. What they really love is if you could use that material to make construction materials that begin to displace cement or seal or at least supplement them in and lower the carbon footprint of those things. Oh because there's a big carbon footprint with those materials does construction materials as well. Oh absolutely cement. For example is responsible. Just cement is responsible for about eight percent of the entire carbon emissions so given the changes in technology and the changes in the marketplace is the biden administration which is set these relatively ambitious climate goals for twenty thirty five and twenty fifty. Are they pushing on an open door. Then no not really because in the end to get rule acceptance is got to be better cheaper and there's a nurse and so if you look at how you make these major shifts in infrastructure. These are half a century investments. How the lifetime of a coal plant. The lives of a national as planned. Lifetime of an automobile is fifteen. Two going on twenty years now. You can retire things before their natural lifetime. But then there's a lot of resistance to do that So the question for the government is how did give this a shove. How did they move things a little faster than they might naturally move on their own. That's right the real question is what will help people make electric vehicle choice. We'll first thing would be. The technology gets so instead of keeping your old car. You really want to have something. That's just better. But how do you retire things before. The national lifetime is initially now. You have to demonstrate that this change is going to be good for not only health but the economy and everything else. It has to be cost effective and cost effective e e. Could incorporate the cost of cumin house. Hopefully the american public will have no trouble trying to understand that when it comes to your own your family your children's health. It's worthwhile one of the reasons i wanted to call you. Was that you were in the obama administration when it was attempting to get climate legislation through congress. And it didn't happen. There was tremendous political resistance. Do you think the political landscape may have changed in a way that will allow more serious investment in fighting climate change. Yes in fact. I would go further and say i think some oil companies you know. I'm on a advisory group to royal dutch. Shell and i truly believe that the company wants to see itself in a completely new business that they cannot be a carbon company that emits carbon into the atmosphere and so there's also growing awareness as the public than companies themselves in. This is a problem. We have to be part of the solution. Even if it means that. We've got to have to completely reinvent ourselves steven chu. It's a pleasure talking with you. Thank you so much. Okay my pleasure.
Intensive scare: covid-19 ravages America
"We're likely to lose another two hundred and fifty thousand people dead between now and january this week grim headlines and milestones in america the daily covid nineteen death. Toll hit a new record on wednesday. The infected patient count in hospitals asked one hundred thousand for the first time the contagion has now reached every corner of the country with ninety percent of all. Us hospitals in areas designated as corona virus hot zones cases have topped a million in florida texas and in california governor gavin. Newsom warned of worse to come just in the last fourteen days close to one thousand californians have lost their lives due to covid nineteen. The bottom line is if we don't act now. Our hospital system will be overwhelmed. We don't act now will continue to see a death. Rate climb. healthcare systems are becoming overwhelmed in ways not even seen during the pandemic's panicked early stages in the midwest things have been particularly dire with intensive care units filling up doctors and nurses exhausted and in many places. The public just isn't acting in a way that will stem the tide right now across the midwest. We've seen a surge of cova cases of people being rushed into hospital. Adam roberts is our midwest correspondent in states like north dakota. South dakota is when talking to health workers in those hospitals. They've been telling me that. Icu beds are at eighty percents. Ninety percent occupation ensured. The hospitals seem to be getting quite full and sometimes quite stressed and how have the hospitals in the region been preparing for this surge. I spoke to several health. Workers including dan rooney. Who's with the emergency medicine department at the university of iowa hospitals and clinics. That's in iowa city and his hospital because it's an academic center is just about the best equipped in the state. It's been doing everything it can to clear. Space to let covert patients have as much from his possible. So inpatients have been sent home when they can be. They've added extra. Icu beds that being postponing elective surgeries and dr renee told me that it's being taught and go from the outside. It sounds like okay. Everything was handled any sort of at the moment. But it's just hard to convey how close you are to going from just being able to barely need it to be overwhelmed and the fact that has been handled so far has been partly down to the actions of frontline workers. We've been lucky of the health care system to mostly not quite break. But i think people be shocked about how close we get and just what it takes in terms of individual level responses to make the thing keep going so from what dr wendy says. It sounds as if the public doesn't really know how bad things are at the moment. Yes don't worry says. He worries members of the public and governing. Politicians just haven't grasped what happens when hospitals get to full take for example the impact of canceling elective surgeries as a common misconception that those are surgeries onto poulsen until the no pressing when you hear hospital canceling elective surgeries. That means people potentially with cancer. Getting their tumor excise. It means people that have gallbladders either heart disease or vascular disease that need intervention that are putting them at risk of really bad side effects and sickness or death. That's real that's happening. So when the hospitals become overwhelmed is not just covid. Nineteen patients who suffer. It's the rates of excess non virus. Deaths that also could search and what about the situation outside urban areas like iowa city. I mean the situation. Equal kind of across the region. No is is not equal. So what you see. Is this interrelationship between the big hospitals in places like iowa city and then rural places small hospitals. That might just have one doctor one us now these rural hospitals. They're under great strain. Not least because many of them have closed in the last decade or so around one hundred thirty rural hospitals across america have closed and that puts a lot of pressure on the ones that remain. They can be overwhelmed with just one two three patients coming in and you can imagine that when covid sweep through a small town maybe a local meat packing plant is affected or prison. Those hospitals are overwhelmed. Very quickly. I spoke to ben christians. Who's an emergency care doctor. In sioux falls in south dakota who said that for the past two months they've been functioning at over one hundred percent capacity of their icu. Beds and they've been adding more beds as well and he takes patients from eighty sparsely populated but Reflected counties spread all across south dakota and beyond and these are patients who are coming in from as far as a hundred and fifty miles to get to his relatively small hospital. And it's not surprising that those places get overwhelmed more quickly than in the biggest cities. And why do you think the situation is so bad particularly in the midwest. What is moving out from the midwest now but the first surge hit the midwest this autumn i think partly because these are more northern states and it's colder weather up here and so people are in those and maybe spreading the virus more easily but it's also a fact that in rural areas in parts of northern wisconsin and the two dakota's people have just not taken serious measures. It's not unusual for me when i've been reporting and wearing my mosque going into small towns to be stead at and for people to look at me as if i'm an alien. They don't want to wear masks. They don't want to do social distancing as winning liz people in the cities and that may be why they're also being affected badly now and the third reason is that politicians in those states including the governors have been refusing to order rules on mosques and closing restaurants and businesses. And so it's not unusual in all of these places to have mass gatherings people going to church people going to bars and restaurants even when the infection rate is extraordinarily high and that must be that much more frustrating for over the frontline workers who are seeing the effects of all that don't originally told me it's very difficult the thing that's been harder as as this has gone on the sense that we're not really in this together as a community as a state a nation you know. We're watching people get sick. We're watching people die. We're watching our colleagues really extended themselves to prevent the system from completely breaking and then to see scenes of full airports full bars to see people talking about their individual liberty with regards to amass. That has been that's been and a lot of the healthcare workers in other places. I spoke to said exactly the same that frustrated. They're exhausted some falling ill themselves but is there a bright side here. I mean haven't health professionals come a long way since the spring and in terms of coping with these outbreaks. Yes so the saving grace of all this is frontline. Staff know much better ways to treat patients for example they're much slower than people on ventilators. They discovered that if you'll put on a ventilator you own you have a five to ten percent chance of actually surviving it and so far. Fewer people are being intimidated than before. It's only the most desperate cases and generally there a better treatments better drugs use of steroids and someone so there are reasons to be more hopeful. That if you are infected you can survive. But on the downside. We've had a big surge in infections. Recently is not just the colder weather. It's the fact that people are getting together as the holiday season and run the said he stands by and he watches in fear. Because the thanksgiving weekend. The past probably is a sign that they'll be more affections and we'll see a big surge in the weeks to come. You know for all the fatalist and say well. It's paying them into a disease. what can you do.

That's f o w l like the bird It's named after my murder. Mystery company called the foul players of perryville. Perryville is where. I live in maryland. Were about fifty miles northeast of baltimore. The reason why we make that ton or whatever you would say it would be for. Foul is because The town i live in is right on the susquehanna river which is known for its multiple species of waterfowl people. They have actual waterfowl museums ear to talk about that stuff so we figured it'd be a nice play on words for foul play my head. The murder mystery company for a couple of years. Now we perform on boats and on trains office parties and vineyards and whoever have us. I also am a musician. I right now have an acoustic duo. That i've had for about fifteen years and we're kind of comedy act sort of similar to the smothers brothers. It's two of us. We play acoustic guitars and the humor isn't as much when with the banter between us as it is with the humor's actually in songs so that's called. The uncle moldy show. And we perform a in the maryland area a wide knob sometimes in pennsylvania to most recently. You may know me as the viking. And the jim what worth commercials while riding around on the bus. I was the big viking. That came out of the back You've also seen me this year on kimmy versus the reverend if you haven't seen that movie it's based on the unbreakable kimmy schmidt and it's there's a scene where kimmy and tight us. The two main characters are way out in the country and they come into a bar. There's a leonard skinner ban. they're playing. And i'm the bartender in there. I won't give away the movie. But it's an interactive movie but no matter what choices you make in the movie. You always get to see me. So that's the good part about it. You know it's it's not like that movie revolved around me or anything like that We have been nominated nominated for a couple of emmys I believe it was for best special perhaps and then Titus burgess has been nominated for an emmy for male performance. I believe as well. I'm excited about that. I'm also appeared on gotham. I wish unseasoned. Five episode eight played one of the penguins henchman named dale. I was shot to death in the third scene.

Avidan castillo routine about the susquehanna company. All right right squad at company there may have been years ago but the majority of there's only a couple of miles of the susquehanna bets in maryland and it actually goes all the way up to near upstate new york so there could be something on the way you know that river goes through lancaster and harrisburg and it goes quite a ways up.

interview With Elisha Hall
"To have you on so we love starting off with this question because it's a great way to get into the show. What would you say is one of the craziest things you have experienced while on the road question because it's been so many i remember okay. So it's it's funny that this just popped in my mind. And i didn't even tell you about this before but My family and my dad was marines growing up so we used to travel around the united states all the time and several times. He drove cross country. And i remember one time. We were driving from the east coast to the west wintertime. And we're all in the minivan. Something happened where we hit some black ice on the road it was nighttime and our cars yet across the lane and did like a circle bend in the road and hit an embankment out on the side. And i remember thinking you know for me. I'm gonna adrenaline junkies. I it was fine with me. It just was what it was and nobody was hurt but that was good. My brother slept through the whole thing. and we it was interesting how we have. There's so many nice driver that drove island. Oh you okay. We'll call totara for yo. You call twitter. And then finally some guy came by the actually had a witch on his truck and pulled us out and it just. It's it's situations like that shows you know often is humanity but bad also shows you gotta be on your ps accuser and driving the middle of the night in the snow but it was that was one of the craziest but it was definitely interesting. Experienced having one driving at night in the snow is a thing of itself and then hitting black ice in the dark. I feel like that's more scarier and you don't know what you're in less control. I feel like because you can't see where you're going exactly and then you just the good thing. The snow is soft but then damage the car anything but it was. It was really interesting. I had another situation. I was driving. It was me driving and we were driving down the one freeway out here in los angeles and it was raining and i'm just driving fifty miles an hour. Not the speed limit. Sixty five seventy and our car just starts to spend like literally i know are some driving straight as rain. It's daytime and then the car slowly like slow motion starts to fit. I'm just like oh my god. What happened right. Yeah it literally just just starts to do a circle in the. I'm i'm so motion spinning around all the other cars. I could see the driver staring like what is about to happen right now. And then when we finally get all the way around to the three sixty where we're facing forward again you just start going straight talk like this is the weirdest thing and i. I literally had to pull off the freeway just to get my mind straight as the what just happened so weird your car just like all right time to have some fun like exactly one slow spin and then so wearied. Story i gotta. I've never heard that happened before. We car just like all right time to spend right. Yeah and i didn't turn the wheel. Anything just drive straight down the freeway with my hands. Will it was crazy. Man what would you say is your least favorite weather to drive in Leaf favorite to drive in. I would have to be happy. The first rain right. So i've driven a snow Driving up through the mountains with snow chains the four by four of driven and rain Driven my motorcycle and rain. I think the the scariest is when it first ranked. Because that's when it's like. The new rain mixes with the oil on the on the freeway and the street and it makes me than normal five. Say that would have to be it. That's the scariest. That and i feel like i i think you said you've been to maryland before so here people as soon as it starts sprinkling just can't drive and they just slow down so much that you're like okay. Come on it's just a couple drops exactly and you and the funny thing happens everywhere but they say that out here like california's don't know how to drive in the rain. Right where the draft super fast and we drive super slow but the thing that happens everywhere right like you said in mara's like we don't know what do drive super slow. It's it's crazy speaking of your motorcycle. I know you mentioned her earlier. An interesting experience you had when you're writing it. Let's see i've had a few. I don't even remember what we talked about before. But i said to you guys oh man. So there's this Like if you know anything motorcycle my people that are listening right motorcycles. Bet they'll know what i'm talking about. But you can control the the front and the rear brakes right separate and i remember driving down the freeway and this car like it's kinda rush hours not going too fast. But i'm able to go in between the language problem and this car changing lanes in front of me. The thing about when you hit your brakes is if you hit the rear brakes then life. Think about bicycle a lock up your bicycle skid right but the thing the motorcycle it's like eight hundred pounds what's gonna scare but it's gonna keep going the thing about if you hit the fred breaks then the fourth of just the front brakes locking. Actually 'cause the the entire motorcycle to flip forward up onto the front wheels or the the motorcycle is themselves will will flip over the handlebars so i try to hit both breaks but i ended up hitting more of the front brakes in the rear. And so i go up on just my front tire. And i'm just kind of a little bit getting forward. I didn't hit hard enough to lock it and fly forward by hit enough that my motorcycles now up standing on one wheel and then i'm able to it just you know i'm releasing the break a little bit and then it comes back down on the back with a hit the car and that was probably one of the scariest because all the free win so many cars around but yeah it's you have to be very

All of Teslas 2021 Model Year Updates
"Everybody, Rob Power here, and today we haven't exciting episode. We have updates from Tesla on almost every single vehicle in the lineup. So we're going to go through exactly what has changed because there's a lot here to keep track up. So tell normally doesn't make these broad sweeping changes across the lineup they sort of just update each vehicle as they have changes to make. This then is pretty unique for Tesla and it does seem like they're making these changes right at the same time that they're changing the model year. So even though on tussles website, they don't necessarily designate what model you're. The vehicle is the vehicle identification number does still indicate that and from those Vince we've been able to see. That Tesla has just now started producing those twenty twenty one model year vehicles over the last couple of weeks we'll talk a little bit more about that later but let's get right into the changes here. Predominantly, the changes have come to the model three but again, there are updates to all the vehicles which every captain a chart here. If you are watching on video, we'll go out of the traditional order here of as three X Y and switch it up. We'll start with the model three. So the standard range plus originally had a two hundred and fifty mile range that has now been increased by thirteen miles two, hundred, sixty, three the long range version saw the most significant bump for the model. Going from three hundred, twenty, two miles before now to three hundred and fifty three miles of range and the performance jumped up by sixty miles from two hundred, ninety, nine miles before now to three hundred fifteen for the standard range plus and the performance that's about a five percent increase in range. But for the long range, it's actually about nine and a half percent. Unfortunately at this point in time, we don't know what is driving that significant variance between the long range, all wheel drive, and the other trims were just going to have to wait and see once he's actually start being delivered to customers aside from the range. The long range and performance versions are now quicker zero to sixty. The Long Range non-performance has been updated from four point four seconds before to four point two seconds now, and the performance has gone from three point two seconds to sixty down to three point one as for other changes we've talked about quite a few of these earlier this week about the big one here is the heat pump house actually able to confirm that the new version of the model three does have the heat pump. This was just from one source at Tesla. So it is possible that that source was misinformed but from my knowledge, the model three now does have a heap like the model why that should improve the efficiency especially in colder climates we know that the model three has Now been updated from chrome to have black trim instead a power trunk. There is a new steering wheel electric is saying that the steering wheel is heated I have not seen that confirmed anywhere else though. So I think that's a question mark at this point in time, there's new updates. So the air wheels and the sport wheels have been updated to a new look, and then the performance model three has been updated to the Uber. Turbine wheels that are currently on the model y though on the model three, they're an inch smaller at just twenty inches rounding things out are I believe updated mirrors though I think this happened earlier sometime around September to add a heating element to the side mirrors. And then I believe there's also now an auto dimming rear view mirror for the model three. There has been updates to the windows apparently for better soundproofing, and then of course, the updated center console. So the fingerprint trap that was the piano black glossy console is no more at least for the model three does still remain on the Model Y. so speaking of the Monowai, let's move on to the updates there these are just range focused. So the long range model why has improved by ten miles from previous EPA rating of three hundred, sixty miles to a new rating of three hundred and twenty six miles three percent increase there, and then the performance model why has gone from two hundred ninety? One miles up to three. So twelve miles there or an additional four percent we'll come back to that for a little bit more analysis but just around things out for the Model S. The long range range actually stayed the same at four hundred and two miles. So no change there. But the performance had a significant increase from three hundred, forty, eight miles before up to three, hundred, Eighty, seven, thirty, nine miles incremental or eleven point two percent of course, the other big news on the Model S. This week has been the price cut. So the long range has been reduced by fifty five hundred dollars while the performance reduced by three thousand as for the X. No price cut here so. There is a pretty big spread now between the US on the ex but the long range version did see a range increase as we talked about earlier this week when we had seen that, Maroni sticker from a new delivery, it's gone from three hundred, fifty one miles before now up twenty miles to three hundred, seventy, one about six percent increase, and then the performance seeing similar level of increase to the performance model s from three Oh five before now up to three, hundred, forty, one about a twelve percent increase or thirty six miles. So to the best of my knowledge that captures all the changes across the entire lineup. But of course, as these vehicles start to be delivered, we may still. Uncover some other minor changes but to summarize all this, if we look at the average here across the entire lineup, not using any waiting by sales or anything like that destroyed up across the board previously tussles average range three, hundred, twenty miles per vehicle. Now it's three, hundred and forty. So a twenty mile increase for the average vehicle tesla sales or about six percent. So how is Tesla able to achieve all this? Well, back in July? We had heard that Panasonic had already developed technology that had resulted in a more than five percent increase in energy density on Tussles twenty-one seventy battery cells and Reuters reported that they would quote start converting lions at Gaggenau Vada from September so I think now. We're mid October were starting to see the results of those updates in the lineup, and we're also seeing improvements and s an ex and those were to use the eighteen sixties from. Japan not the twenty one seventies from Geena. Vada but if Panasonic was able to improve the twenty-one seventies while they were probably able to improve the eighteen, six fifty as well I think it's tough to find another explanation for the roughly six percent increase in the Model X. range other than updated cells. But the confusing part is that zero percent increase on the long range model s remember though when the Model S. increased from somewhere around three hundred, eighty miles up to that four hundred to rating the model extra. At all. So really it's just catching up with the previous model s updates. So I wonder if maybe Panasonic had been testing an earlier version of that new battery cell with the five percent energy density increase in just the Model S. but then it wouldn't explain why the performance model which would presumably have the same pack as the long range is seeing a similar increase. On the model here as the Model X.
Interview With Whitney Wang
"Welcome to embedded I am Ille- Co alongside Christopher White. Today we are going to talk about professional Taco copters. Well actually prescriptions delivered via drones in places where growth's aren't viable. I guest is Whitney Wong from ZIP line. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. Could you tell us a bit about yourself? Sure. As we said. Hong I'm embedded software engineer at supply. Supply is start and we make high-speed fixed-wing drones that deliver essential medical supplies around the world. Joins a blind a year ago straight out of college, and I actually have a background in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Building robots sand. Really, excited to be here today. We are excited to ask about drones and. Some world travel. But before that, we want to do a lightning round where we ask short questions may watch for. And if we'RE BEHAVIORAL OURSELVES WE WON'T ASK WHY. Are you ready. Good To to complete one project started as. Well. In practice I definitely start doesn't but in theory I would definitely like to compare one. Do you have a favorite acronym. That's a good question. I don't actually have a favorite acronym, but I have at least data acronym cuts new. Okay it's it's one of those reclusive acronyms. It's very annoying. If, you could teach college courses what would you like to teach? I took this really amazing course when I was in college called transformations in art and engineering and it combined art and engineering, we've got to do a lot of really cool embedded. He projects and was really free form and yeah very creative So I would definitely like to teach a class like that. Drone. Or Quad. Copter. I guess Quad Copter is a subset of droned. Depending on your definition but. Said fixed-wing. So What is the silliest application you've seen? ooh. Twenty question i. I guess. One of the summers for my internships. I worked at a startup where we try to make an indoor drone. It was basically a quad copter encompassed in a ball and it looked like the death star so. That was pretty fun. Cool. Do you have a tip everyone should know. Yeah Don't be afraid to get started I definitely seen many of my peers. get really intimidated by Harvard projects coming from like same more pure software background but you know, don't be afraid to to just like get moving in and make mistakes and learn along the way. Okay. So tell me about zip-line. fixed-wing launchers. Give us the rundown. Yeah. So the technology is pretty cool but it seems kind of random men and a kind of strange If you look at it from like today's perspective just watching videos online how it works is actually we have a swing drones. They look like tiny airplanes. They an operator assembles these drums on a launcher, which is basically a high speed catapult. The operators hit a button and these drones catapulted into the sky at a hundred kilometers per hour. So these drones, then move across the sky and We actually have a service radius of about eighty kilometers, which is about fifty miles and when it reaches the final delivery site which is typically a hospital or health facility in any of the countries that we serve. It will open. It's payload doors release a package with a parachute attached to it, and that package will guide to the ground and the local doctors who requested the order will go in retrieved package. Are Jones will autonomously fly home and it will actually. Do something that we referred to as a recovery, which is essentially It doesn't have landing gear. So what it does is it has a tiny centimeter long hook. At the end of its tail boom, and there is a big trust structure where our original like launching location is so like the recovery system is right next to that catapult launcher. And on top of this big trust. Will be a a line essentially like fishing line attached across this trust structure. The line will snap up as the drone reports keep. Yes. Location at a sub centimeter level accuracy back to the ground station and it will engage with the line catch on. So it's pretty magical looking.

Remember, the green matches up with the rainfall where we have the pops of yellow that's some heavier rounds of rain coming through including over the Willett. Hills southwest interior some locations there have already picked up an institute inches of rain. And then over the cascades, you see some of that heavier snow chains currently required over the top of ninety down below. It's been very gusty Anna Cordis and back out toward the San Juans gusts.

Temperatures in the forties around the sound. But look at the fifties at the beaches so things are going to start to warm up again as we head into Tuesday. It was already very warm this afternoon nearly record. We hit fifty four the record for this. December day was fifty seven the reason for the warmth. We've got a lot of subtropical moisture at least that's where the storm is rooted all the way back down there to the southern latitudes. And that tends to pop the snow level up. So bottom line. We'll go to see rising snow levels. Over the next twenty four hours a lot of snow right now, it's still Kwami, but that should lift later tomorrow a little bit for slightly easier pass travel and down below rainy and blessed again as we head into our Tuesday rain totals from here on out still impressive.

That's why we're seeing that flooding around the skykomish river as a matter of fact as well overnight tonight will drop into the forties rain and gusty, but the high wind warning expires by one in the morning for Bellingham. So those winds should ease for you. Highs tomorrow back into the low fifties showers and sun breaks with a high of fifty one around swim beaches, not quite as blustery as it's been today. Back into the fifties there and in eastern Washington warming back up into the fifties as well that puts that snow level up eventually to five thousand feet tomorrow in the cascades, so Snoqualmie pass should start to lean towards some more rain.

"Party not only of the cities but largely of the coast because people like to live near the water within fifty miles of the population is within fifty miles and I Have to believe this is an accident nobody could have know nobody could have invented this Dan it's a drift is, that correct Yes the back the founding of the Republican there for the design of the system that we still use to this. Day the founding fathers were very concerned about ensuring, representation, of places as. Well as people Which in turn entail probably. Some measure of overrepresentation for, lower population of rural areas that's the that's the? Cost, of getting the constitution ratified for the for the larger states was the creation of the Senate which over represented smaller. States but so in that sense this was this was by design far in advance But there's another way. In which it was very much not what the founders. Intended the founder has really didn't expect or want America to. Form nationwide political parties they had this idea that there would be all these different stacks in some about issues about some by region different branches and. Levels of government would defend, their own interests and that would all sort of Shifting alliances in some big soup and so everything would of even out where you could find where you signed consensus you'd get lost in fact we wound up. With a two party system and so. That is nationalized and so, when you combine that with the fact that two party system has now, reoriented itself along the rural urban access you got the situation we have now where pretty much every way founders stacks attack in favor of certain voters over others happens to. Help, one political party at the expense, of the other and that is what the framers, intended and therefore as a Republican and I am a, legacy Republican as my father. Grandfather and Greg grandfather you understand it happens in America and but I've recognized. Since the nineteen sixties when I started paying attention that the idea of a liberal Republican is extinct with the. Dinosaurs I we can talk about the Democrats but I'm gonna talk about what I'm familiar with And the reason for that is that there's no place, for dissent in. Either of, the parties they shape their messages closer and closer to where the votes. Are and that means they don't want to divide themselves over a long period of time is that what's happened in both, parties didn't set out. To do this they didn't really want to exterminate liberal Republicans but that's the effect so it's indisputably true that partisan polarization in America has grown back slowly over the. Past forty years or so used to. Be throughout the fifties sixties, seventies at the most conservative democrat was far to the right of the, most liberal Republican and in fact there were a lot of political scientists in the nineteen fifties who were arguing for more more polarization because they from owned the fact that. The, party labels didn't seem to mean, anything and so voters didn't have permission shooting in In selecting, food and. Vote for we've now clearly gone to the opposite extreme where the parties were vast ideological Gulf, separates the parties there are lots of reasons for that but clearly. The biggest one is the legacy of Richard Nixon southern strategy and the shift of. Southern white voters who tend to lean conservative on many issues it was. The fact that we used to have it, to facto three party. System of northern Democrats southern Democrats and Republicans that enabled all these bipartisan deals in laws to be passed and once that shift completed you got. A much more rigid polarized your party system I'm speaking with Dan Rosenheck he's the economist magazines. Data editor and, we're speaking about the midterm elections and why it is that you need the Democrats to win that national votes so much heavier than the Republicans in order to stand a chance to.
