This is the daily tech news for friday january. Eighth twenty twenty. One in los angeles on tom. Merit and from studio redwood on sarah lane from studio colorado. I'm shannon morris drawn the top tech stories in cleveland. I'm lynn per nine. The show's producer. Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys.

An average oak tree can shed 550lbs of leaves

"You told me a statistic. For the show about an oak tree that absolutely astounded me. Well. Yes and I don't know who figured it out if it doesn't surprise me a bit now, there was no definition to this, but it was stated that a great big, old, oak tree. When defoliants, it drops approximately five hundred and fifty pounds of leaves Oh now one no wonder. My back hurts when I write. Exactly right exactly. Right mark and it's one of those things. especially when they think of coke, I like to use oak as a mulching type of leaf because when when they dry and full. They they stay cupped up they stay arched up they don't they don't. Shall I say meltdown like many other tree leaves do and this gives me A. Factor. when I when I put him over a plants roots and so on where the air can move through its slows the freezing and thawing. But at the same time, they don't become a wet mess because well, for example, a wet mess having used leaves under mums can kill them over the course than later because they don't like wet feet anytime of year. So it's just one of those things What do you think a big old oak tree you could stay under no danger but in total, it'll drop five hundred pounds of leaves now. I watched something happened one time that is related to this. starlings landed in great big old tree as it is, and I mean a whole bunch of I was sitting where I was hunting and I sitting very still and I could watch this they all descended on this tree which didn't i. I couldn't see much difference. Then then something spooked them. And they all flew off at one time and and the limbs in that tree raised by A. To twelve inches from from the release of the load, the birds sitting in the tree and. That's that's just the darndest thing. But in this case, it's OK leaves. It is something that an engineer of somebody Maybe they needed to have more to do that day. But at the same time, it's interesting to think that there is that much weight of just leaf in a tree.

Perfectly preserved prehistoric cave bear discovered on Russian Arctic island

"Have just discovered a completely preserved extinct cave bear the ice age cave bear species, Ursus SPILEA S-, which went extinct about fifteen thousand years ago is itself between twenty, two, thousand to thirty, nine, thousand, five, hundred years old and was discovered in the melting permafrost of the of Ski Islands the Southernmost Group of the new Siberian islands. The bear originally found by reindeer herders still has its nose teeth and internal organs intact. It is the first wholly intact cave bear specimen scientists having previously only found skeletons.

Tesla Rivals are Moving Into High Gear -- and Going Public

"From wondering I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business words daily on this Wednesday August Nineteenth David Brown's on vacation. Tesla has long had an image of being in both good and less good ways without comparison. CEO? Elon Musk stands out for his big vision and sometimes quirky behavior, and until now anyway, Tesla's all electric vehicles have stood head and shoulders above the competition coming from traditional automakers. Competition what competition I can almost imagine musk saying. Oh, but there is plenty coming tesla shares soared two, hundred, fifty percent this year. The company is now the most valuable automaker in the world according to. CNN. That's because Tesla which went public ten years ago is finally profitable. Tesla had a record twenty nineteen in posted its first annual profit last year despite the pandemic it's been profitable this year as well and that kind of performance and the stock market's reward for it is convincing more and more electric vehicle makers to go public and to try to woo customers away from Tesla last week, Ohio Electric Startup, Lordstown Motors Corporation, or L. M. C. said, it plans to go public by the end of the year. It's ticker symbol ride. If the deal goes through, the company will be valued at close to one point five, billion dollars. So who is Lordstown Motors to burst on the scene this way? L. LLC is a spinoff of another electric truckmaker called Workhorse. GROUP LORDS DOWN CEO Steve Burns is the former CEO of workhorse with LLC Burns resurrecting a project that we're course didn't have the money to do the company plans to release an all electric full-size pickup truck the Lordstown endurance in the second half of twenty twenty one that's according to journalist Alan. Adler, writing for trade publication freight waves. The truck will have a range of about two hundred fifty miles on a charge the same as Tesla's sci-fi looking cyber truck it'll toes seventy five hundred pounds alums. He says again, just like the chuck, the endurance will start at fifty two thousand dollars a good deal more than the cyber forty thousand dollar base price. But UNLIKE TESLA LLC plans to sell the endurance to commercial customers buying fleets of trucks since revealing the prototype on June twenty-fifth Ellen Mc says it's received more than twenty seven, thousand pre orders. That's one point four, billion dollars worth of trucks. NCO Burns says its first years worth of trucks are now sold out. That is if it can raise the money, it needs to actually make them l.. AMC. Bought the Lordstown Ohio GM plant that shutdown last year when GM killed the last Chevy Cruz that six million square foot plant needs retooling, which is costly MC plans to raise about six hundred and seventy five million dollars through its IPO. That boatload of cash could help it come through on its boast to be first to market among a group of EV pickup truck competitors in addition to Tesla that group includes Ford GM Nikola and Arabian a company backed by Ford and Amazon. So, here's the obvious L.. He doesn't yet have a product just a prototype if you're wondering how the young startup can go public without a product you should be. L. EMC is one of a handful of electric vehicle makers employing what's called a reverse merger that means the company that plans to make a product like LLC hooks up with the so-called blank check business. It's also called a special purpose acquisition company. SPAC. Is doing the reverse merger with a blank check company called Diamond Peak Holdings. Diamond peak is already publicly traded that means when the merger occurs. LLC. MC becomes public sort of like easing into a coat someone else has been wearing. This back door IPO method is easier for companies to do. They don't have to produce expensive roadshow's. Also, avoid a great deal of financial scrutiny by the SEC. One of the most famous reverse murders was Richard Branson's space company Virgin Galactic, Holdings and Fantasy Sports Company draftkings went public in a three billion dollar reverse merger. Last year according to the A. Times. The number of reverse mergers hit a record high last year. That's because the IPO market was volatile and high profile IPO's like Uber Fared. Poorly. It ain't cheap to build a new car company but Tesla's successes inspiring other entrepreneurs to try and they need oodles of money that helps to explain why another electric truckmaker nickel motors used a reverse merger to go public in June and vehicle-maker. FISKER has a reverse merger in the works. The is green truckmakers may see these back door IPO's as the speediest way to raise the cash needed to fight he'll in musk and rapidly launched their new products. Tesla's promising to deliver the cyber took by late twenty, twenty one which means that the deadline to beat yes. It may be tough to knock Tesla on it's pedestal, but LLC and a raft arrivals are sure going to try.

Pickled Watermelon and Pigs' Ears

"Doctor. Conyers welcome to, milk. Thanks for having me I've never spoken to a rocket scientist especially one who can do a whole hog, but this is the first time for everything up. Let's start with your first time you barbecued a hog. Age Eleven you learn. I guess from your father among other people How did they do it? The first time I cook a whole hog. For and then we actually butchered and do we get ready to do to barbecue we? We butterflied open had a burger barrel and we had would ready to go and a burned embers down all night in. Kohl's throughout the cooking process until it was dud and my family came over to particular who? In Vermont they often use refrigerators for smoking, but you said that I think sometimes you take a refrigerator and take the top off and turn that into a barbecue pit, right? Yes. So we take the frigerator, take the installation refrigerator and we lay down horizontal. And within that frigerator, we will actually put racks just to cut a hole, two pieces of fence wire, and so those pieces a fence wire was sandwiched hall. When we flip it at the very end of the cooking process and we have a door, we'll cut another little door on basically wanted to side wall so we can put underneath the Hamson shoulders. So one hundred and thirty pound pigs in a take all day, right? Yeah. We we barely have anywhere from ten to thirteen or fourteen hours of cooking time with also is a function of the outdoor temperature. So the wintertime's nearly take a little bit longer to cook. And just sometimes, some animals are just a little stubborn. Alive, and dead. So. who gets to actually take the meat off the bone. Once you're finished cookies that a bunch of people show up to do that. Sometimes people will eat it off to within another time. We will bringing a whole hog in on a pan and into the house and we'll work it up like dat. At Up, we want to get all the bones and stuff out of like shoulder blades. hipbones the ribs could you wanna mix the long meet with the red meat and the show doesn't a hams because each those sections have different textures the different flavor. and. So when you hall you WanNa have a mixture land desk series of why I believe whole hog is the holy grail of barbecue because when you could like just a Boston butter pork shoulder is not the same experience. You said that cooking whole hog was a tradition that was getting lost and that's one reason you wanted to go start it up again. Why was there move away from whole hog cooking? Barbecue is being lost in my community because the of black farmers cook whole hog was gone away and as those farmers went away from the land so that the whole barbecue tradition. And what I realized was Donna I could really sita's tradition care for it in a really authentic way was. If I continued on in a way I was taught I mean I. I like a good steak like a good hambur. Good ribs but I think also for me cooking the whole animal was more is also about fellowship coming together. To me when I Cook Barbecue. Generally away to show a lot of love to the people we really cared a lot about. You talk about engineering because a scientists and cooking a whole hog. What is your engineering background help you with when it comes to cooking a pig. I was say the techniques I use cooking barbecue are- traditional, but what went to cook a whole cow about two years ago? I probably could've brute force it, but I said why not use an engineering approach to actually bid to handle maneuver lows of a whole cal See. If a five hundred pound cow, what did you do to be able to move it around probably about how we had a little when probably about three hundred and thirty pounds and that was plenty big enough. I'd never cooked the whole cow in my life but. I knew from Reading Literature Oh historic leave literature did a I would need to kinda rotate the cow not like a Rotisserie, but periodically through the cooking process. And so I wanted to be able to turn that animal with ease every three or four hours. It would almost attorney a finger. See

Atomic Budgeting: Compound Interest

"For the next five, this is part one of five where we talk about atomic budgeting. There are five big takeaways of the entire book and let me get you. I've got my notes here because I didn't want to mess this one up obviously and. I should have James on the podcast. He's a busy guy, super successful author. Maybe you should write him or tweet at him and say hey. Jessie from wine wants you on his podcast and I. think that's a good idea. Then you'll kind of grease the skids for me, okay? The five big ideas are habits are the compound interest self-improvement? That's what we'll talk about today. The next one is that it's not about goals. It's about systems I love that idea number three. It's not about achieving. It's about becoming too about your identity. The fourth is the four laws of behavior change will dive into that in a few weeks, and then finally the environment that shapes you, so we'll hit all five but today I wanNA talk about compound interest as it relates to habits, habits are the compound interest of. Any kind of behavior change and it works with your money to now. We're not talking here about seven hundred bucks every single month and then whoa. It's done amazing, right? We're not talking about that. We're talking about the compounding of your budgeting. Habit itself so. With that in mind. You should be this is key. This is a quote from James. You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results, so if you're just starting and you have been binge listened to the podcast because we all know that's creepy, but you're just listen to this. When for the first time? Just? Know that where you're pointed. That is far more important than where you are. Don't get hung up on all. My Gosh I can't I mean it's good to know where you're at. Yes. Delay the land, and then point and be done. Don't look back ever. Budgeting is never ever ever ever about looking back. Number two. And this is where the compound starts to come in that. We know that if you get a seven percent return that it'll grow to a million. If you get eight percent return, it'll grow to two million I'm making that up, but the idea of just as small incremental from seven percent to eight percent return on money. That's for retirement that you're building up over time boom. Big Things happen. We know the reverse of that as well where credit card companies charge. Charge very high interest, and it's very hard to claw to that unless you are getting very aggressive with a very good budgeting plan, and all that so that compounding of interest think about that as it relates to your little efforts with budgeting and I have another quote here that I love time magnifies the margin between success and failure. It will multiply whatever you feed it. So what budgeting habits are you feeding your success? What bad habits are you feeding it? Are you doing something daily? Are you trying to do this weird like monthly massive effort to get everything balanced and cleaned up and all pouring through all your data, or are you just keep it really small and just feeding at these small little successful habits. Have you changed a few of your routines and not just be feeding these bad habits and starting to kind of promote the good that time magnifies it. It so when you first start, you're just doing what feels like this tiny little thing like hey, how much money do you have in your checking account? Well, what should that money before you're paid again? Well, you're done and you're like. No, no, no. I wanted a Bagel big Ole effort. This is a Saturday. It's the I've got five hours here carved out, and I want to budget for five hours. No. No. We want you to budget for like eight minutes, and then you're done, and then when your next paycheck comes to budget for twelve. And then when the next paycheck comes to Friday's let it. We want you to budget for seven minutes. That kind of thing we want you to budget frequently. We'll get into more of that later in another part but. It's those little efforts, and then you let time magnify the success or that margin that says that margin between success and failure time magnifies it. You look at somebody in the gym that squatting five hundred pounds. That's awesome, but they didn't do that because they tried really hard for three months. They've been slowly adding weight to the bar for. Eight Years Okay Here's another quote my last one for the day if you want to predict where you'll end up in life. All you have to do is follow the curve of the tiny gains, tiny losses and see how your daily choices will compound ten or twenty years down the line that goes back to my five hundred pounds squatter. And it definitely applies to your budgeting, so think small. Think tiny, that's James gets the idea of atomic, the smallest of behaviors to start to just compound those tiny wins. What are they in your budgeting paradigm in in this this new world that you're talking about? Or maybe it's old that you want to kind of make it a little easier. Make it a little more attractive. Make it a little more streamlined. What is it about your budgeting world that you could say Oh, I just these are the tiny little things that'll add up over time, and once you're doing those things you can just relax and let time beyond your side.

Impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry

"Here's our conversation with the CEO of intercontinental hotels group D. for a challenging time for the industry I mean when you think about the impact that the travel restrictions social distancing borders being closed cancellation of conferences meetings and events you know we've never seen an impact the demand for the township like this no I when I look at the start of the year we had a fairly good January and February and then as an industry we saw revenues begin falling quite quickly it in March and and the impact on people's been significantly I mean this industry employees travelling towards one in ten jobs globally and so you seen millions of people in the U. S. become unemployed in a very visual creative talent and so keep help us understand how that plays through to your business you know by the numbers mean how many people have you have been affected within your company by this either temporarily or or god forbid permanently yeah so I mean we have a a model where we are basically a franchise or for most of our business right okay Mr tell that we have around the world no six thousand a really small businesses are individually owned hotel main point fifteen twenty fifty people on about four hundred thousand people who work in hotels around the world and many of those people today have been furloughed or been in being made employee and so on thankfully the U. S. impact the cash back then had the paycheck protection program which enabled the small businesses to hopefully retain a lot of the staff at the corporate level we've been cutting people's salaries we've been cutting capital expenditures really focusing on the quiddity to make sure that we can get through this very very challenging time in the industry having said that you know keep in having kind of an asset light business how is that protected you as a company overall from from falling into deeper crisis yeah it really I mean we were some of the less leveraged companies out there in this industry and because we don't know a lot of assets we have less exposure so about focus really isn't on customers and colleagues and our owners and how do we help all those different individuals and stakeholders get through this so customers been about giving them flexibility on bookings and so forth with a colleague has been helping them access the that the programs around the world whether it's the the program here in the U. K. with the government I'm basically funding up to eighty percent of someone to pay up to twenty five hundred pounds what is in the federal unemployment and local employment in the U. S. with our owners accessing small business loans that turn to grants to been very very focused on that because those are the people that being the hardest impacted and we know by looking after all the stakeholders and helping them get through this we can come out of this the stronger business and help your business but it is again yeah people talk about challenging I mean I know I've been to the financial crisis I've been through you know nine eleven and we've never seen demand drunk like this and I think and if he's going to have to think about how to come out of this and how do we work with government and we work as an industry to help businesses stay vibrant right during this time frame re open and then see what the what the new normal click going forward but we want to talk about that new normal for sure but one thing I want to ask you about keep before we get too far away from it is what the experience of your owners and your colleague said it has been in terms of accessing those small business loans because we're hearing hearing reports about availability we've heard a little bit of controversy of you know who's getting it ends not what's coming back to you as your colleagues report in well let me start by saying just just for the record I see we have not received any funds from the paycheck protection program full stop and we've been very focused on getting under there so we've been hosting webinars from day one helping owners get to these programs on it had really good success with it number of wonderful stories about hotels Holiday Inn express that was close was able to access the program and then reopen it hired staff back to sell it hasn't been perfect clearly by the think about the small business association I think process is normally about thirty billion dollars a year in the US and they did three hundred billion already in a month we'll testament to their if they're trying to help out as many businesses as they can the program need to expand you know one thing we've been saying to the government was great first then but this program is going to have to expand and be extended because it is not to be over a month be ready to go back to normal tomorrow and so we can see about the long term in health and stability of an industry it is one in ten jobs globally and in the U. S. as in the sector and so that's a lot of people who we need to look after a lot of small businesses who buy from local vendors who hire local construction workers ability to tell if it's the interconnectedness of our economy we have to recognize to make sure we can kind of help work through that together does the government understand that Keith do you think they understand that when you get on the other side what really needs to be done I think you know I've actually had a couple of calls with the U. S. said we've been engaging with the White House with the Senate commerce I mean it they really do understand that they had to move quickly they do seem to understand that they're going to have to do more so hopefully they'll be able to get the next part of the package out on but I think it's a responsibility of business to help continue to educate them on how this is unfolding the impact is going to have more broadly and also have a part of the solution to because we're trying to help out as much as we possibly can we are we are hosting frontline workers in medical professionals all around the world in our hotels no we donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to food banks in different markets around the world to help out people who are in need we're providing to a great initiative call purchase peptic first responders first giving thousand room nights to first responders who close the medical facility need accommodation I think that's what the issue how we have to rally around how can we help get through this both by supporting owners supporting colleagues also out front line workers and medical professions and keep it as you look around the world as you pointed out it is Carol point on the introduction truly a global company you probably have some inputs that other CEOs don't have in terms of how this looks on the ground in different markets around the world what are we missing what should we know about maybe some things and and the way this virus is manifesting in the economic manifestation at different points of the globe it's quite interesting use being the country's who've gone out quite quickly on testing quite quickly on contact treating and understand the use of technology to be able to really manage it and manage the economic impact of open up parts of the economy also countries with they've got very close borders or New Zealand being put out there and in a straight come quite well now so countries that have been able to act quickly decisively on testing and trying to think has done a better job Kevin economy's going they'll be critical for the US to do that and in Europe as well too and that's keep are the CEO of intercontinental hotels group joining us from London obviously Carol no business are very few businesses have been changed like hospitality right reminding us that tourism is responsible for one in ten jobs globally so it has a big impact on the global

Tapirs Help Reforestation Via Defecation

"The Amazon rainforest is under threat. Fragmentation fires and climate change are just a few of the hazards in natural intact forests. Animals that eat fruits helps to keep the forest in a constant state of regeneration since they deposit seeds in their droppings as they travel could the same process help restore areas degraded by fire. So data tapers walking around. They study area and day. Of course boop a lot because they are huge adverse. Lucas Paolucci. From Brazil's Amazon Environmental Research Institute so our team ask whether they could be walking around and eventually helping to reformist is area through there. Oops and of course the seeds that are with it. Tapers are the largest terrestrial mammals left in the Amazon rainforest. Imagine a five hundred pound pig but with a small elephant trunk on its face. That's sort of what a low and taper looks like the species is threatened with extinction but certain areas still have quite a few tapers roaming around using a combination of camera traps aerial imagery and field observations. The researchers measured the density and abundance of taper droppings in three different parts of the rainforests over the course of seven years. One test plot was experimentally burned each year. One was burned every three years and one was left completely intact. We saw that they were according to times more often in disturbed areas named the unburned plots and also person times mar seeds. That's a lot of seeds extrapolating from the data intact. Forests a single taper deposits. Almost three thousand seeds in a single hectare or ten thousand square meters but in Bern areas the animals dropped nearly ten thousand scenes and while researchers don't know how many seeds can germinate after a trip through a taper as digestive system fewer than one percent of such seeds appeared damaged. Potatoes are just part of the equation. After they do a number two done Beatles get to work forming the SCAT into balls. Before burying them seeds included Paolucci is now looking at whether Dung beetles like the taper. Deng are also more abundant in recently burned areas. Putting tapers to work doing what they already do. Best is perhaps the cheapest method for large scale tropical forest restoration. Such renewal is critical for carbon sequestration. Biodiversity Preservation and much. More tapers won't do the job alone but their work would help. Lower the price tag.

Most most of which were successful. Some were catastrophically unsuccessful. Many were on bikes. That weighed close to five hundred pounds. Most of the CAR Harley Davidsons. Yeah he loved Harley he he had a triumph Bonneville He actually started selling Honda motorcycles. which will get into? But I think that's crazy because Jeff I mean Jeremiah's motorcycle rider and he's like yeah it's like like motorcross jump. Bikes are like two hundred. Two hundred twenty pounds. He's jumping bike. That's three hundred pounds more than that. What's an an animal that was five hundred pounds grill? It's like jumping a hundred Yeah so these motorcycles are flat track bikes. That were. We're not designed to jump. As Joe said he also broke many many bones in his body and spent a lot of time in the hospital and against all odds he lived to a He lived to sixty nine years old. Nice Nice Nice for more impressive than his death. Defying stunts was eagles ability to act as his own promoter. Heitmann and publicist He knew how to pump up the drama and get the crowd on their feet I think that's my favorite part out of the documentary. I didn't know that evil was. He's like a handsome guy he's super now and just so confident like oozing confidence in every interview he does I. I guess it makes sense that he was so good at that. Because I mean you got I think if you have the mindset of like hey I'm going to jump over thirteen buses or whatever you also have to the confidence and be like I'm GonNa tell people who watch my stuff but like I don't know like you you talk to like race car drivers today. They're definitely there's only a few that only a few that can talk at all. Yeah EXAC- nerd. Best Friends with her dad. So it was very interesting seeing Mister Knievel and Action Green Anaconda by the way five hundred pounds. Wow which surprised me more because I. That's a big thing that makes a big meat tube. Evils Charisma inspired a new generation of stunt people around the world. He was a natural showman. con artist and outlaw. But he wasn't always evil He was born Robert. Craig Knievel on October thirteenth. Nineteen thirty in Butte Montana. Butte at the time was a small rough town known for the two things mindful of copper and bars full of miners. Robert's parents Robert Senior and an knievel gave birth to his brother. Nick a year later. Then They divorced soon after his mother moved to Reno and his father moved to California leaving Robert in Nick in the hands of their grandparents day says reading more round Butte and there is like three thirty thousand people in the town but there are three thousand prostitutes will serve all the miners so literally one tenth of the population was prostitutes. That means ten guys. We're doing the same Gal. Well Ignatius and Ama- knievel. His grandparents showered the kids with love and affection. Filling in a much-needed Ignatius We haven't Ignatius at donut. Then we haven't Agnosio. Yeah but like that's that's kind of a Sam his grandparents bought the boys Bicycles and toys and took in the fairs when Robert was eight Ignatius. Emma took him in his brother to a daredevil show. That would forever change his life from that point on the Joey Chitwood thrill show was a traveling. Extravaganza sends like a rockabilly band. Joey Chitwood Joe. Joey Joey Chitwood trill show played at the fair there. I'm surprised he didn't have his own signature. peachy cours So this extravaganza that featured stunt driver Joey Chitwood J. Turns and driving on two wheels and what amounted amounted to be a giant commercial for Chevrolet What really interested Young Kyu knievel? was the motorcycle stunts. Riders would smash new flaming boards at high speeds. They do we lease and jumped through flaming hoops. This show sparks something in Robert. In his words I would go home and take defenders of my bicycle and put clothes pins in cards so it sound like motorcycle. That was the start of his lifelong obsession with motorcycles. And

"Is GONNA fly x wing fighter. Office yeah over over the park mark. Yeah this is like this is wrong and so many different levels wrong a so. What is this job you found the the story? What's this is? This is also on the drive dot com section a section called warzone wars. But all of that having been said Disney at Disney apparently both Anaheim in Orlando has a a An event that they are they built someone one built and is operating A A series and I don't know how many of these things there are But these are are basically drums multi-role drones that are designed And shaped to resemble the x wing fighter from the Star Wars Universe. Yeah aw and apparently there's you know a whole Butler these things. I am a do synchronized Flying and this Kinda anything at night with lights and you know they have lights in the cowing and all that kind of thing And it's a thing now I I did see something somewhere that whatever the show was that Disney was putting on its concluded. Yeah and The X wing fighter slash drone thing. He's have been packed up and have been delivered back to their creator. Something like I'm waiting for them to pop up on Ebay. I think that would be a thing that would be a fun now. I see now I would from. What were you by by one of the souvenir store so so just to show you my dedication to our podcast? All right I actually listened to the video. That's embedded in the middle of this video from as you probably well well no There's just a whole universe of people who do Disney watcher videos and blogs and It's quite a quite a little a cottage industry of people who are following what Disney's up to And this one is what's it called Mickey give us all things. Disney news is the Youtube Channel And so I actually listened to this video although I confess I only made it about halfway through before I couldn't stand anymore anymore. But he describes that very similar to what you just said. Is that this. If these were flown at all they were only flown once in a relation to this big press event that they did recently where they were introducing a new ride. That's part of the Disney the star wars world that's at At Disneyland and But he seemed to think that this could well become a regular thing that they didn't go away. I don't know uh-huh and there's so many questions here it's like so we got Disney flying large drones because these are not small drones. These are like drones the size of a compact car right so drones that can carry five hundred pounds. Yeah all right and so you're GONNA fly them. Low over are crowded amusement park venue. So it's like isn't it against the rules to fly anything over a crowd. There's nothing that gives the rules for Disney. They've got their own T.F. Are Okay Yep. That's sort of where I was going. Here Disney Disney controls. The Horizontal Disney controls the vertical end. Maybe I don't know I I kinda like this. I'm a little resist resentful of how much control control they have over the airspace. What you just alluded to On the other hand I you know and Disney. I was talking to somebody on on some social media twitter or something. Recently we were. We were bemoaning. The fact that that Disney has so messed up copyright in America Trade. You know because they've been desperately. We're trying to protect Mickey and not let me go into the public domain And as a result every copyright is messed up for everything. That's a bad thing but on the other hand Disney does a lot of interesting things in terms of fun entertainment and technology that they've developed in order to do that entertainment so you know I remember. They used used to have. They used to fly ultralights over. The Epcot yawned in the middle of Epcot. So they did a light show when fireworks and sprayed water and stuff like that over that that that pond each evening and for a while they had They actually flew ultralights as part of that that that that show. I'm pretty sure I actually saw was actually present to see the version of the show with the ultra lights and it was kind of cool. They apparently operated off of the legendary Airport there is down in Florida. VERSION ORLANDO And the legendary A. F C or or Disneyworld airport there. That's no longer an airport But I guess that's where they operated these ultralights they've done this in the past This story JEB alludes to them flying dragon over one of his saw. That and I I think now you mentioned it. I remember seeing video of this. Yeah Yeah but that's an interesting thing and And so now they've got a drone a multi copter x wing. That they're going to fly I over what's this. What's this star wars world? It's got a name now planking. It's call I'm sure it's in here someplace galaxy's edge galaxy and but And here we are given Disney publicity. That they neither need nor paid for. Yeah and I'm still in the I. Lean towards Disney is evil side of that coin. So okay all right. Well that's now but this this are is Orlando. They don't have a t of are over Anaheim. Do they think so. No they don't have the same kind of is it the airspace over the Anaheim facilities completely different. I don't know well. Of course it is. I mean it's like within its nearby if not within the The John. John Wayne Charlie I would you know. I don't think it's in it but it's close to it. Yeah that's a whole different kind of airspace. The L. A. Basin as opposed to Orlando. So so. Yeah they're flying these things over again you know. Maybe maybe we'll see him on on open open-market one of these days x wing

Editors Square Off On Tesla Cybertruck

"Somehow in a year when we've seen the debut of a mid engined corvette hand in Electric Mustang gets tesla the manages to unveil the most controversial vehicle of the year if not the decade. If not ever I'm obviously talking about the Tesla Cyber truck which debuted last week and a circus like unveiling with sledgehammers broken glass. I bullets at an ATV. The dust has sent settled. But the controversy over the trucks designed how it was unveiled and whether or not Elon. Musk is certifiably insane. Insane continues on this week's episode Senior Editor Jeff Perez and Ice Square off on the Tesla Cyber Truck. Jeff Welcome to the show. Now let's set the stage a little I had this is my third editor head to head battle And it's also of all the first two we've done. We're also about electric vehicles as well. The first one was me versus managing editor Brandon Turkish. where he argued for the Porsche take hand and I argued good for the Tesla Model S? The second one was just last week where Chris argued against the Mustang Mach e r really just the Mustang name and I argued need for it and now here we are once again. I'm on the pro side of the equation. Arguing for the Tesla Cyber Shrek. What side are you taking i? I'm taking the Anti Cyber Truck. Take I guess not. Really the cyber truck has concept but the way everything just went went off the other night with it. Yeah I think that's an important distinction actually and I think it's one people are struggling with because obviously the trucks design is so polarizing alright so like everyone is going to have a reaction to that and I think that's okay because we we say all the time in our car reviews. That design is subjective. Beauty is subjective but but distinct from from just reacting to the design. There was the whole spectacle of the unveiling their are the preorder. There's the you know what's next. Like candice thing even reached production. There are so many questions left unanswered. Honestly this is the first head to head battle where I don't don't feel like I'm on solid ground so I'm going to try my hardest but I feel like anikin looking up at Obi Wan and him telling me not to try it because he's got the higher the ground I'm GonNa try it anyway but you you may slash my legs off with a lightsaber during this conversation. All right before we begin again. Let's tell everyone some facts about the cyber truck just so everyone knows what we're talking about This is Tesla's electric pickup truck You you can call it a concept you can call it a prototype you can. It's probably more accurately just their vision of of a truck. It has crazy design with zero curves and only only flat plains edges and points And that's because it's made out of super hard steel that forms and structural exoskeleton and the steelers so hard that it can't be stamped into complex shapes so can only be folded and used in these kind of flat flab planes or or sheets supposedly has armor level glass although we'll talk about the failed demonstration that happened during the unveiling there's a very simple spartan interior with a big screen and Tesla roadster like steering wheel. That's not actually a wheel As for the specs there's going to be three models a single motor rear wheel drive. Dual motor all wheel drive and try motor all-wheel-drive and the best specs are for the Tri Motor version that one will have five hundred miles of range. Fourteen thousand pound towing capacity thirty five hundred pound payload and zero to sixty time of two point. Nine seconds I think the most shocking SPEC that they released as the pricing this will supposedly have a base price of thirty nine thousand nine hundred dollars for the base model a single Motari wheel drive forty nine thousand nine one hundred four the middle tram dual dual motor motor all wheel drive and sixty nine thousand nine hundred four the tri motor all wheel drive and I think that's I I mean the the forty thousand dollars base prices.

"That's that's also okay so we we. We have a business plan. We have designed. We now have a prototype prototype and we have a final prototype that we're ready to to get into production. Did you go with the same company in China to do your production or digest to now start shopping that Allen's well no so we did get a quote from the prototype the company but figure the prototype company wants to charge are just like five times while other companies in China wanted to charge us to make the molds so we ended up going with another company in China for the molds and then the such a long process getting them shipped over the United States. You wouldn't believe the paperwork you need to send five hundred pound steel blocks over on cargo ships from China the next up yes. It was such a pain now honestly you guys are kind of refreshing my memory but you you think back and it's like Oh that was not too hard but when you're in the heat of the moment I'm sure you guys have had things like this in your own lives on businesses is just like all all you can think about so stressful sell little thing that you'd never expect yeah so much and I actually I did just a tiny bit more like you're talking about the paperwork. Are we talking like five pages of paperwork. Are we talking like forty. Fifty are just like so much. It was massively overwhelming for a while me. It was like twenty twenty five piece of paperwork Jan.. I have my cousin like I had to give my cousin a peo- a power of attorney because I had no clue what I was doing and he's a he's my cousin. WHO's an attorney and yeah? It was just like really overwhelming. I mean I was lucky that I had him in my corner but it was just like a lot getting tail costumes. I got a call from like a customs agent. I'm like Jesus like I'm just trying to get a mold over here for for desks exactly and I know a lot of our listeners probably sitting there thinking how wise Carolina about paperwork but we've we've. We've done this before and we know that doing all the importing custom stuff. It's actually a complicated part of the whole process. It really is and I just kind of address that yeah I just want our listeners to really really get a sense getting idea of what this whole process is like I mean I think cody's our first person that we've talked to. That's had like a physical non-food. What type of product that's a product needs to be manufactured in? There are so many little nuggets little bits and pieces to make that happen. I want everyone to get a really good idea of what that's all about. Full Okay so you get the mold over here these five hundred pound molds olds. How did you figure out who to send them to actually start producing your product so this is a whole nother journey in itself so we finally found a manufacturer that we wanted to work with the gives a decent quote? There were twenty minutes away from our hometown in central Massachusetts. I don't want to give their name a bad..

"Responsibility for healing yourself, you accept the gift that that the pain or the the health issues that are they're there for you without that you wouldn't change. You wouldn't be better. You wouldn't improve. There's no need you're not being forced to. So these are the gifts that were given to allow ourselves to get to a better place to advanced cycle spiritual because the difficulties that Bush, it's the same in business. It's the same relationships. Look at anybody in the military or on a sports team. They come together when things get hard when she hits the fan. That's when. The real things start to come together right in business. Same thing. Everything that you fail out in business, you would look back and I'm really glad that that happened because it showed me what to do, what not to do, I'd learned from it. Right. So they're all gifts. It's just a matter of, are you willing to go through the pain and understand it from a different perspective and move through it and and go through the process? You've said that you'd like to push yourself that you'd like to rub up against your limits? Absolutely. What's the driving force behind that? I think it's curiosity of going to a place that I've never been right now. Actually, one of the latest things that people are doing is there's a template sting yourself down your spine with beatings. So this actually stimulates the immune system and the nervous system. Very good thing. This is this hormetic stress idea that we need these little harm uses for you. Yeah. So this is a very important concept that that there are these little stressors that come into your life that are there to help you grow stronger. Right. The easiest one is exercises that very easy example. In order for a bodybuilder to get big and strong. They have to lift a lot of weight. You can't go to five hundred pound squat until you go through the process of getting there. So it's this idea of pushing yourself and then recovering pushing yourself are recovering pushing yourself farther and recovery. And this happens with plant chemicals when you eat garlic. For example, the Allison and garlic that that makes it have that pungent taste makes it antifungal that all these things that's a poison. It's there to protect the garlic plan and allow it to survive. It's the plant's immune system. And when you eat it, you are getting the poison. You're just getting a low level poisoned that we've been come accustomed to and learn to respond in a beneficial way to same thing with with with polyphenyls and phytochemicals or polyphenols that come from blueberries or red wine that we all hear about chocolate. These type of things. These are not antioxidants oxidant. In other words, they create oxidation. Stress. The body responds to that oxidation stress with antioxidant genetics kicking in. So there's. An antioxidant respond or response to the pro oxidation of the blueberry juice of the of the blue part of the blueberry. I think this happens with the motions when you start to face an emotional emotionally difficult situation, you have to learn to get through that. So to me, this is my exploratory behavior of getting to places that I've never been emotionally spiritually physically and through that process, I'm allowed to take away something new that I can't get from text to me..
