20 Episode results for "Forty Inches"
Scenic Enough for Jurassic Park
"Last off Kawai is one of the wettest environments in the world. Mount any eighty. Average rainfall here four hundred forty inches year. So much water flows through the mountain that waterfalls abound. Two hundred eighty footfalls was famously used in the film Jurassic Park. It appears when a helicopter carrying scientists. I lands on the island. Locals now, just simply call it. Jurassic falls? It was during the making of that film that a fierce hurricane slammed into the island. Production halted as the storm unleashed its fury. The cast and crew huddled it safety. But according to one report director, Steven Spielberg couldn't resist the opportunity to capture some of the real storm for the one portrayed in the film. Said but Spielberg took a camera operator with them up on a roof where they filmed the wind driven waves crashing over a breakwater. That footage appears in the movie.
Podcast #867: Speaker Bar Giveaway
"Welcome to the age TV punt, featuring the HD guys are dairying prayed Russell now the HDTV podcast. Welcome to the HDTV and home theater podcast for Friday. October twenty six this podcast number eight hundred sixty seven and as you can tell by myself doing the introduction. It's a different show. What's happening is? I got called away on an emergency. Nothing is critical. But there are some some things I had to take care of the show is still going on. Thank you very much for your support. A lot of you have responded to our calls for a little bit more supports that were greatly appreciative of that. But I just wanted to come on. And rather than just skipping a podcast and then having everyone wonder what's going on. I thought I'd just let everybody know that everything's fine. And we will be back next week like usual, but I also wanted to. Announce our new giveaway. I mentioned on the last show that I built a speaker bar, and that is something that we're giving away you can enter the contrast the contest by going to HD guy. HT guys dot com slash sound bar. And what you gotta do to enter is. There's a form there you can fill it out. And we will announce the winner on the November second show all entries must be received to receive by us on no later than Thursday November first at noon Pacific time. There is one entry per person. And the winner must have a US or Canadian shipping address the sound bar just for information measures about forty inches long. And it's a four and a quarter inches high by five inches deep. And they were built with three Tang bend three inch full range. Drivers, there's pictures on the website. I personally think it looks really nice. Now, it is the first time that I've done a veneer work. So there are issues with it. It's on perfect, but I guess for free. You really can't complain too much as far as the sound goes does sound awesome. You will need a sub woofer because it's pretty much rated to a hundred Hertz and up so anything below that. You're going to need a sub woofer, and you will have to set your sub with for crossover at eighty five sorry at at hundred hurts the typical one is eighty five. So you wanna make sure you get it two hundred. There's also a video with a little bit of audio. So you can hear what it sounds like again, take that with a grain of salt because it was recorded one with a iphone microphone, and depending on what you're listening on. It's not gonna be great as far as you know, sound. It's not going to display what the sound is really gonna sound like so anyway, preciado everybody listening sorry that we miss.

A VerySpatial Podcast - Episode 629
"He listening to episode six hundred twenty nine or spatial podcast october twenty seventh two thousand eighteen hello and welcome to race racial podcasts and i'm jesse this is frank and sue is without voice today so removing on without her being audible format you know what are you gonna do in that we're gonna use services and services are the best way to go there easiest find and there is a lot to that find ability as we talked about many many years ago is paramount and archie us online a few of the other portals that allow for for searching they they make it much easier to find these things because they've integrated and allowed google to go through factors and increasingly what i'm finding is that files in an FTP format are less dominant and i think this actually lays a little bit on our shoulders as are other hats of a faculty in zooming the cloud base thing and i've been surprised that the sheer number of people that i've had to sort of talk through some of the files stuff part of their project that they were supposed to for friday was to get me data for what we're working on as part of the class project the pages the way they've set it up with rest you know you can do that so there's there's the the fine ability that plays a huge get no files everything was a a web service everything and that seems kind of timing that just rubs me wrong when classes were teaching them about these type of things the early people going into the field because i can tell you i'm teaching land use planning right now urgency so anyway that's sort of the context of this conversation which is how important are files and file formats now and in the future bilden last five years and of course people going through school now because of the mobile the cause of the web there is this expectation sound really dry and boring but i think it's actually pretty important and that's file formats okay don't turn off the podcast please federal and i think the impact of fewer people going to files yeah i think there's another part of this which is yet another hat on there way i always say that we're wrong about that word or patriots dot com slash vary spatial if you'd like to help us out more and more important but at the same time i think there's an interesting dichotomy that's going on between the people who really want that file and people who are okay with me silence i'm gonna use it as a teachable moment later on but yeah i mean it's it's just kind of you know i think for the current generation anybody who's come out into the in an issue worth discussing so working in the state of west virginia one of the big things that we do is we published data in various forms of was any sort of sponsorships or anything like that like you know what we're doing and like to support it in some form or fashion we greatly appreciate it okay so onto this week's topic and it's going certainly there are less dominant they were ten years ago and things like cloud based services mostly as resurfaces what we do but it doesn't have to be those are become this is something that has come out of what i do for a living my day to day job and is increasingly finding a problem a problem as i've crewed nonspecific sometimes not very useful but something meta data associated with these were a web services that isn't always talk for like cad particular i don't know so i don't really know how to tell them to deal with these file formats and i've noticed that some of these file formats are are not being supported in you what on the the industry itself because you know various organizations are pushing either the cloud options or something like geo database it's so heavily in in other formats as well that this kind of underlying format sees other types of formats that i think yeah we don't really get into the fact that she file is important and of course whereas a file you or in the case of let's be honest shape files the single stupidest name ever because it's not file its we don't nobody really likes i ain't nobody i'm sure there's like nine people but very few people actually like the deep delve into meta data and one it's a thing dot GDP in but it's also i don't know if it's an infant standard or not i can never keep track but even if it is it's not in my experience okay within the files that they liked to work with natively everything works wonderful but if you wanna move across these domains things get very complicated very quickly and i think that's a universally adopted open standard there's a lot of software very current versions of offer that can't handle them at all and that's i think a bit it becomes a flush i'm like how could you not get files yeah and so one of the things that especially since this is gonna be cartographic product it's going to create issues for them down the line i think is very attractive about services about cloud based stuff where did you get it i got it from over there which at about well it says here on the page i mean other you know open source and software that doesn't necessarily do that and you have to whenever you're moving in windows explorer you've gotta remember or know at least does that allow us to take something from one source to other sources you know even every licenses portions of of software to you think of that will read and write shape files so it's a wonderful format because it is so universal even though it's maddening and it was created at a time when majority of our files in terms of shape files are kind of left out in terms of description so yeah we we talk so much about these newer the great attractive points of cloud based systems because they don't care as much but we do talk about we do have to recognize there are those third party tools that allow us to convert from more or less any data source to any other data nursery data file type rating thing for the end user to say okay if you've bought into the ecosystem or bought into autocad ecosystem or whatever if we the idea of having a single file that has multiple things was kind of weird geo database you mentioned geo database and that's the compelling format because like what do i do with a shape file what do i do with geo database how do i pull this into my software out important to that software and in many cases if it's non spatial software not explicitly spatially the various software allow subdued data conversion in addition to what we look at today in the web they're still these tools in some software especially again as recently they started this they recognize this early on and created catalog so that you can move at once but there's a lot true it's maybe fooling you but there's this thought expectation i got from here it's the most up-to-date these the people this is makes it a good day there is a professional hats of you know we all we all the majority of a suck at meta data you know we all a large percentage of this offer majority of them maybe all i don't haven't done the research our cost resources in some form or fashion usually the files so you don't know how current is this information well on the web service i think it's the most up-to-date because it's on the web service or it's on the cloud servers our the way we build knowledge over time and it's you know a lot of people who you know you're talking to five years ago it's an open standard that as registered here and you can you know right libraries there's probably dozens of existing libraries exist us and pretty much every language to to move at all yeah and you know as much as i was knocking shape files one of the great things about shape isn't just a cloud system out there that i can tap into and i find that to be more common and in fact i feel like i can almost date the error and into a scenario where the idea of files is becoming antiquated viola da six to twenty seven files i'm being hyperbolic obviously but there's a lot of files associated with this creates all sorts of headaches in its own right i don't know if you finding this and by that i'm asking is it so i find an awful lot of our customers in my day job are unfamiliar that those tools even exist any other data file type to be able to use our software and to then like you're saying bring it to the cloud as well yeah which i think is what's you know that was part of the file but that's a side gripe and i feel that's one is beholden onto the people who are teaching them and it's also some brian finding students that are getting the shape file and they think because it says shape file it's a file and they miss a whole bunch of stuff that we can't do anything with this because it doesn't have this this this and this pixels per in your four-inch for every one pixel in your name right but people of the geospatial person by what you said people coming out last five years this is what they are normally expecting to see if they haven't come at last months or so in my day job is the issue of compression for imagery okay so this i think has a huge interplay with what we expect and and i don't know that people are willing to invest always to do so they would they more often than not are asking a lot of hard drive space and i think that because of cloud based systems we've become very divorced from the notion of size you know how much space is it take for it space and one meter yeah it's a little bit more and people don't realize exactly it's not so one meter how many is that how's universal right i mean if there's anything that knows anything about spatial there's a piece of software remotely spatial at probably reached shape file because it's been around since the dawn of time and had there were a lot fewer file types that we had to deal with on a daily basis and fewer applications that we had to deal with on a daily basis as well i or why they would need them they're so used to working within a ecosystem or a different ecosystem when they move across ecosystems the only way that they have to really relate to that what is via cloud based systems and that becomes challenging because you say okay there's this thing out there but all those soft i don't know and go through and dubai ban combinations and all these types of things that live amazon cloud services that we never have to download it for apps i don't know i can tell you as somebody who works in that field my answer would be an epic crap ton i don't know the exact number is i don't think i've ever met anyone that's actually working all of west virginia more often not i'm doing work and charlestown or doing work in beckley and it's a limited if we had the tips i can put it out there because it's relatively small but the state of west virginia has been slowly flying large sections of it at a much higher resolution we have four inches thing for us to educate our customers at the resource implications of especially whenever we do talk about something like archie us align or hexagons map a lot of this and so it kind of looks like this magical tiny data set until you're the person on the back end who has to maintain i think it's a direct correlation there right so if it's x number of multiply it times ten i get that that's how it works it's actually much larger for a whole lot of reasons and so it takes it's well let's let's round it down hard and approximately or we'll just say forty inches so that's yeah that's ten pixels per cy that's a hundred where so much of this can be accessed via a service that digital globe or maxine available on compressed format means that i don't know what you want to work in i'll i can say what everybody might want to work in and that require they've been the same people asking those types of questions so there is some of that that we've learned these things as we go through and you know there's a lot to be five years they started asking me where can i get this we're going to get that file you haven't this form can you make it in that format all these sorts of questions and a lot of that is are now i'm not sure how much that plays into it it's a good question another thing that's propped up a lot in the last oh so many of the people are contacts they want the tips can you give me the tips and if we're talking about something that's you know at a resolution that's like nape is a great example something that yeah but a lot but it's just there so we don't think about that and and people just walking i just get that in its native format and it's a it's a very challenging cus the name of the company that owns them now have made available to us you know there's there's lots of tools to look at remote sensing imagery must leaving just the idea of i just can't even i i don't use expect to use on compressed data it it's very area and for that area it's not that much data really at the native resolution i you could download that without too much trouble but they don't realize that to make that allow people to do this is at the data again actor i get whatever it's called and so you know there there is that injury that's going on for i think the entire state and that's a very large data sets so putting the tips out there takes your thing that that and i think we're injured his more crest yeah i think whenever you do a cash it comprises it in some form or fashion so that would be an as requested us as a backdrop so what do you care if it's using something like sid and it's a little more pixelated it's not that big of a deal really and more often i think it's happening is people are pushing they're trying to push it one more or two more levels beyond what it really can do and kind of see so if you you know when you get into the deep delve of cashing i mean literally what you're seeing on the screen of course is a j. peg but the question is you know in terms of being able to get it out issues you know going back to the jape tosari to the shape file image issue sorry not image shape file issue whenever we are talking about images especially for down it can call her the pixel and it may color the value and maybe that has an outcome seeing what the native i i could kind of understand it but if you're not you're not going to do anything with imagery except in that data set right and one of the big problem is that people are working in whatever area they're working in rarely working in the entire data set area you something like said or j two thousand or someone a bigger in a more squishy compressions you can't push it a little bit beyond what it's supposed to do you can barely push to what it is it there's no way to really change that cartographic and this has huge implications when you go to make a map because in native resolution to everybody and it's interesting to me the number of people who are well that's not gonna work for me versus number unload yeah we can zip them together but a lot of the format still require a world file they don't realize that a lot of the web products that are out there the service based products cloud stuff has a cartographic form in that else to be able to use it for geospatial purposes yeah and it's a challenge to get a lot of a PG w or j w whatever it's called tiff DFW said s. t. w. so again you're getting into the whole multiple file arctic graphic challenges so you said your students gave you web services and that's gonna have cartographic implications and this is something that i'm finding increasingly with our interns is that actually just pulling the data using whatever the default symbolically is but you can still change that symbolically so yeah i mean those they're looking at rosters versus tile services have their own set of variations as well so it's not just the vector stuff that create some of these differences that what the what you can get back out as i haven't served any day like you guys have so i mean whenever we're talking about ranchers that gets into whole other i do think that's what's going on but it it's been a bit of a problem because we don't have the capability within our shop to make these things available in service is really kind of like a different file format and as differ capability so the map service course has the the symbolically set whereas a feature services very much in demand most of the people that we deal with and i don't understand why because imagery because everytime remote sensing data can sort of understand because when you compress uh little bit to my mind the rise of why i thought this was an interesting topic to discuss which is are we moving if we take that out what we just said it's a bit of a preamble are we moving who is give you a little bit of of differences whenever you're dealing with him and of course we have other issues you know going into map services sorry going to map services aris thinking the entire state in our particular case i can't imagine if you're doing something that's regional or you're dealing with a state like texas this huge relative of west virginia what that super league i'm good with our services and but and whatever you go to arrest service i mean whenever you put it in the cloud you probably are using is probably if you're making something with a green background and putting on a green togo it's gonna be a problem it's not gonna pop out on there's nothing you can do about it because the rest services okay well i have some housekeeping don't forget to head over to the patriots on page that can be found at very special dot com slash patriae on which by the way it's a map service it's not a it's not a feature service and you got to understand the difference between those two things a lot of people don't understand that even though we're talking about a cloud based service a map service the people to understand that and i'm going to flip to something you said early on which i thought was a really good point and i want to get back to for i forget which is the issue of yeah i mean that's the one that's the easiest because we're so used to vector stuffs it i don't like it blue green make that read a boulder make it if you lose that specification and that's where people are using this as a necessary bit of the specifications that i mean whenever they're downloading they're downloading not just the j. p. g. g. is that you see so many match services because they're credibly fast and very small so have i published an arrest service with vector lines yeah we're used to that capability but it it's it's not just a line stuff they have those limitations and again going back to the resource side of things there one of the reasons contact information head over to spatial dot com slash context as always folks number spatial thanks for listening and we've seen a couple of weeks by tons and tons of space in terms of hard drives but we still have limitations in terms of processor in memory i mean that's just the way is going to be and of course our network traffic as well so these are now the the i don't know the limitations in a web data not the scale that you would expect in almost any other state outside of wyoming or whatever yeah i mean there's a lot to me said about the fact that yeah we talk about the and one thing whenever you're talking about a company who is making this data available and relying on back ends like zero probably the number one tech support i have to do for your stuff doesn't work is help diagnose somebody else's IT problem as and you're getting these number of hits i mean it's it's west virginia's was not that big a deal but if you took that same setup and moved it to pennsylvania words of the amount of resources it takes not just hard drive space but CPU in ram it takes to run that thing which is a whole different ball of wax let's see and all that sort of stuff like that so it's a very attractive way to publish data but if i do it as a feature service it's i don't know a geometric progression or or amazon's ec or star EC two but whenever you're talking about a shop where you're dealing with the servers and house is the data a lot of times but kansas to the cloud accessibility whether we're talking about an app on a phone or using the web interface or even the desktop clients allow you to connect to web services now it's not as much about the size of the data more we can suggestions we have one big arc server that's virtual server as opposed to multiple ones because our pro we haven't been able to successfully the world is who you're trying to connect you what infrastructure they have yet i think let's let's go to the internet for that networking issue for just a second abacus one the things to play nice in a sort of don't call it cost anymore but custard environmental for arc server and i don't know what that's about data sets and so while you know you're you do see it i mean we've talked about before and bleed dozens if not hundreds of congress little conversations that go between those two points that you know about and any one of those concrete prom or someplace like that i mean it it's gonna be and that's our first services i should say for our FTP it's much smaller but still it gets a lot of traffic but not if you machine so i mean and that and that gets pushed a lot but as you said i can't i don't get the traffic that he ac- and even pennsylvania in terms of what we have we we do three we have three nodes virtual servers and actually bizarrely enough if i'm understanding the isra- specifications campuses network and being able to use web services so there's only one room where i think she uses them now and every other room she if she's in another lab uh-huh and i think a lot of times one of the benefits of a file is it on your computer and there's literally internally it's just lots of connections but one thing he didn't say was that it's not just lots of connections when you first connected the data set every time you pan every time you zoos are where west virginia servers get hit but they don't get hit as much as they could but still i mean how many servers i mean what are you what are you up to now easiest answer is it's your firewall and any goes way downhill very quickly after that and you know you're saying that there's but it does require a very beefy machine is a virtual machine it probably takes a third of the power of our node which is a very computers conversation in allow you to work with the data with the cloud of comes very complicated very quickly and that is something time you and ten thousand of the closest people you've never met in your entire life are talking that exact same moment trying to have this conversation so even if you're in if that pipe get saturated on their end just because so many people are asking for it then it becomes a problem you should recognize this if you're a gamer any level if for the end user to understand there's sometimes there's limitations are imposed upon them had absolutely nothing to do with data or spatial or any i mean a lot of times the it's for everybody and that's there's only so much you can do about that on the other end of the spectrum because you can't necessarily new york coordinate north carolina or just san francisco gadget just doing sanford yes that's just insane the number of hits that you're gonna get in those places for those worst-case scenario your hard drive fails or your computer stops working and you could copy it to something else so it's it's a very uncomplicated conversation as it happened one is from your machine to that web service and the other one's from that web service to your machine what you don't tend to realize is there are probably cloud based data is that you've got the most up to date version all the time which is awesome except to counter that as always meshiah signs projects that are locally local data where go download it 'cause she just she can't mm-hmm you're making an entirely new set of calls that web service and so if you're sitting here st would be complaining up and down about her thing to do with me at all and it and it's very challenging and it takes time and what a lot of people don't realize is that if you're connecting to web services there's two invest the resources we like to say that storage is cheap processing just cheap it is compared to say twenty five years ago that's true shoot for the middle and hope it works for most people miss the time or if you only have so much money shoot for the lower third and and that's an ongoing problem students can't if they have more than two students in the room actually interact with web services because their network is set up in some weird weird ways indus clear networking wise like you said on the server side there's a finite pipe getting into the servers so even if the server is more than capable of handling the traffic currency of data which is a problem for files right i completely jump to the segway was nonexistent here but that's okay but one of the nice things about do but it's not free so it takes money and resources and you can't expand for to the highest demand point sometimes you have to you know which is both well we've not cloud a bit here so i want to go back and talk just a little bit for second about one a nice things though about the cloud is you have the fact that you had the most up-to-date seeming version and if somebody took a data from two thousand and uploaded in twenty nineteen but didn't put in the you know it's not only every time you go and request or pan resume wherever it may be a query that you're creating new conversations you have to remember that nailed it but if you think about what version is what's that reference so if this is the two thousand eighteen version what does that mean was that the year that oughta game that got released that day and tried to download it you know exactly what you're trying to connect to the server this is exactly the problem too many people trying to get at at the exact same time causes problem leave off data but absent good meditative which on cloud services sometimes is a bit lacking it is difficult to know that it's one of the things that you really wish or at least i wish i could get into in in classes talk about these type of things but there's so many i don't have time to get to and so they remain kind of question marks whenever people get into into these jobs and so was published was that the year the data was collected with at the year that the data represents all these questions there's multiple dates that it could reference and absent and many of people who are providing and again this is on multiple platforms have gone to if it's something that that updates frequently going hopefully there's there's people at these jobs who are writing best practices for their their institution this time just introducing them to you know how to find out how to make their own data that some of these administrative issues we just yeah and there's an there's another problem with that i thought you were going to mention which is things can change on you all of a sudden oh yeah so you know i this it has for the year version and so you can point to specific year and say okay look at this data so that you know that one's gonna stay the same so you don't use the current version file unless the files corrupt which is a different issue it's gonna work that way forever which is a nice bit of dependability yeah and there is something to be said about enough procedures manuals i think that are published in this industry for data dissemination of publication which is unfortunate it feels like we should have ones these attributes that has this stuff i'm going to click this this happens and then suddenly twenty minutes later that's not true and you're hearing your hair out because you can't forget why and it's because they updated the data so that i don't know that there isn't but if there is i'm not aware that exists and that in itself is i think there are for certain data types and data sets
Minn. leaders meet to address threats to lakes, rivers
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing, clean energy initiatives, and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs, Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. I'm in Walker Minnesota at an annual meeting of rivers and lakes advocates and lakeshore. Homeowners associations and one thing they're seeing is the data is clear. Minnesota is getting wetter overall and as our climate shifts. That's presenting challenges for these folks. Jeff Forrester is the executive director of Minnesota lakes and rivers advocates. Well, I hear from people across the state and, you know, obviously water levels are changing, you know, some areas dryer. So there's drought other areas are over the shoreline and then we're also getting plants native plants there, didn't used to be plants people are saying, well, you know, we've got this northern mille-feuille which is native. And now it's growing right to the surface, and it's in places that never was before we can't get boats through my guess is that warmers having an impact, and then the cloudbursts events are flushing more nutrients cynical ex. And I'm just thinking, you know. No, it's really time to focus, some science, some energy on. What are the impacts going to be? How do we mitigate? How do we build resilience into our systems? The changes that we're seeing in the lakes. How much science is there in terms of linking that to climate? Well, my sense is, there's some, but there's not a great deal with agriculture. They've, you know, the farmers and farm groups have done a pretty good job of looking at the impacts on farms, and did oh with the timber industry and did o with people who deal with the infrastructure of our cities. But there hasn't been a real focused effort on what's going to happen to our lakes and rivers because there isn't the same kind of constituency. And that's really what this event is about is bringing in people who are focused on water and one part of the state one week or one, watershed and bring them together to kind of start talking about these larger issues. We we've seen a couple of recent records that have really jumped out at climate watchers with regard to precipitation, Minnesota, one was the, the twin cities record for all time annual precipitation of forty inches in two thousand sixteen. And then just last year, we had harmony that came in. With sixty inches of precipitation, that's the all time state record. That's closer to a New Orleans level average annual rainfall this spring. We're seeing many lakes, over Bank full are people noticing those changes on their local legs, people are definitely noticing, and I'm getting emails about it from across the state, and I think some are starting to connect the dots. Some maybe not so much. They're wondering what they can do about it. Because it's a climate impact and the climate is changing, and it's going to continue to change. That's why I'm thinking about resilience. What can we do to build resilience into the systems? What, what, what can we do to begin to manage our likes a in adaptive management holistic way, rather than just focusing on the walleye while we're gonna stock while focus on we? It's all well we're going to treat the weights here. We're going to do this, or that, discreet activity isn't going to get us. What we need. We need kind of a bigger vision. That's climate cast from Walker. Minnesota at a water conference. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hutton there.
"What's up everybody? We are back again for another episode of Grip Wild Men who matter podcast and I'm so excited to be year. It feels like forever always seems I was like forever but it's just a week. It's just one week. Hey we're coming off a couple of weeks with some interviews from some great guys and I hope you enjoyed it and today I we don't have a guest today but we're talking about something. That's just been kind of own a hard lately and I think <hes> <hes>. I think it'd be helpful. If you'll if you'll dive in with this for the next few minutes and you know I've got my monster energy some ready. I'm excited I mean I'm ready to get after it. I'm ready to peel this back because I'm serious about it but before four I do as always there's a man in the room that every time he walks in everybody stops brandon barreau cheese what's up dude what's going on man and it is summertime in Alabama and I feel bad for you because sitting in my office right here you are square sitting in the sunshine this morning and I'm over here in the shade and <hes> is hot do yeah. I was Kinda wondering that like I get short in on the stick I I mean the sun is literally beaming. Oh my face right now and I'm inside. It is a Cat Azad. Even poss- I gotta get some shades even possible to have the sun beaming on your face. It's like the perfect faked angle but you look at your all lit up. You know you guys hurt a couple of weeks ago. Let's talk about summer in Alabama. It's still summer in Alabama it lasts forever and ever and ever summers <hes> if you know and if experience them in the south can be brutal can put you in a bad mood really he think about it. I just just bad mood all the Times Alabama summers but that's something we WanNa talk about today that that's actually that's actually tees up well this. This thought process that we're working through on <hes> you know perspective and so man let's dive in be. We were talking about this morning. Just how can you get to this part of the summer and I don't know why every year I feel like we we make the same comments. We had the same conversation. Get here to the end of July guy. You know it was crazy 'cause last week and Alabama Obama. We had a weird like cold front. They called it a cold front but for three days last week there was no humidity and it was eighty two degrees and we woke up to light and it was I sixty sixty eight sixty five in the morning. It was woo. Do we talk and it was it was awesome but it was so fake because because Saturday July it was roast in again but why why why every year do we get caught off guard. We forget you know I think about all the time like right now man if it was eighty something degrees or seventy seven degrees. I can't wait till he gets cool and then come February. I'll be complaining because it's you know forty man. I just need to warm up. Why can we not content? Why are we surprised every year not me man it can be forty forty inches? Stay there. I love it. I love the cold temperatures of course the odor. I get a little softer. I give but that's okay I still I still love cool weather in the fall. The falls a come in baby the falls a-coming that's right below today. We won't talk about something the net really it. It'd probably come up pretty serious but <HES> but I'm serious about it so I hope it does and so <hes> you know thing. Something hit me the other day you know we're always podcast and you know social media. The on the Internet is all over the place like these the cell self-help stuff for this everything you ever see is like change this and start doing this and get off the couch and and get organized and and work hard and <hes> just all these elements of change who are because you're not doing enough and everything will work for you right or you will begin to be successful or achieve your goals if you'll change and your diet if you'll get up early in the morning and start your day and it just seems like it's always the formula for success is always change what you do in wrong and you'll be you'll get there and it's almost like there's the newest latest and greatest. Always you know. It's always that was last year. I mean think about food like diet stuff right like Atkins was a thing fifteen years ago. It was all the Atkins Diet and and and then we went to you know the low carb and then you went to the Kito like is always a next evolution. It's like we're chasing a ghost at trying to find satisfaction whatever area there's always and I'm I'm a believer in innovation right like figure out a new new way a better way but it's almost like we've eroded contentment out of the equation. Well even not even just not even continuing. I mean the the thing that hit me on this this thought is you know I don't know what it was. I don't know what I saw but to stop process hit me in that moment when I saw it and it was probably listening to another podcast I liked listen to podcasts and <hes> but I immediately asked myself. What do you do when you're when you're already doing every all of those those things like you're you're already engaged in all of those things? You're living your life at a very high capacity. You're doing everything right you you've checked off all of those boxes and it still not working out like you wrote you still not achieving your vision. You still not accomplishing your goals because you know just to be completely transparent. I felt like that in my life. I still feel like that in my life a lot of times where I feel like man. I'm I'm. I'm giving it everything I have. I'm I've checked all those boxes. Yep Chuck check check check and I look up and I'm grinding and it's not working and I guess the question. I want to try to peel back today today and maybe we don't get there but because maybe maybe it's a hard one to figure out but I really WANNA speak to those of you out there today who fill like man. I'm doing all the right things I I've taken all of. The extra steps I've I have gone above and beyond and it still didn't work. I still didn't achieve my goals. I still didn't get that position. I still didn't experience what I thought I was going into experience win. I engaged in that and so what do you do like what do you do when you when you have done everything and it still. It seems like it's still not working well. There's a key right and you just so you just kind of touched on through the end. I think you can look at it two ways you can look at it as man I gave it everything I have and I didn't get it. I didn't do it. It didn't happen or if you'll shift to. It hasn't happened yet. I haven't got there yet a having achieved it yet and I think that is that is a separator among people yeah. I get that brandon below. I'm just let's just be real here. Dude like that's I mean. I'm not saying what you say. It's garbage but a lot of people feel that way like that's such the cop out answer. It's not look let's let's foreshadow here guys. It's not the cop out answer. It's not happened yet but you feel like it is and that's what I wanNA address like. How can we push through the fact that I hear you say that Brandon? It hasn't happened yet. I hear you say like let's Change Our perspective that it's coming that it will work but the fact of the matter is is we still find ourselves. Stuck in this struggle of menace never gonNA Happen Man. I don't know what else to change. I don't know what a like I am pegged out. I have no capacity left. I feel like I have no brainpower left. I have no physical energy I have given I have done everything they say to do and is still not working. How do we pushed through that? I think you're right. I mean you're right because we've all been in that position and I maybe we're not talking about of the battle over something tangible. Maybe the battles inside maybe the battles in my mind right yeah because we're we're really talking about is a feeling really talking about is it doesn't feel like a winning. He doesn't feel feel like I'm getting there right or it doesn't look like I'm getting because it doesn't look like my expectation. What I'm seeing is not what I was expecting and therefore? I don't feel like I'm getting very far. I totally agree man. I mean that's the trap in in in Gaza. Hope we can may be really hone in on that right. There is the trap is. I don't feel like I'm gaining ground or it doesn't look like I'm gaining ground and what you have to. I think what you have to stop doing. This is how I challenged myself in this 'cause I'm not I'm not. I don't bring this to the table today guys because I want you to think about it. I'm bringing it to the table today because I'm thinking about it because it's something thing that I've had I've focused on it several several different times in my career in in my life into my journey of you know. How did I get through that because you know again I hear all these things and I think to myself yeah? I did that <hes> I did dat and I did that Yup. I did that and it didn't work. I still failed or still didn't achieve my number are still didn't shave my goal. But how did what did I. What did I do? Why must still here right and so so so it's I want you guys to see and think about this idea that you you have to differentiate the perspective of is how you feel and what it looks like or is it what's really happening and the only thing I can really really a quite that to in my own personal live and I even even just encourage my wife with this today is she's wanting to do something you know in her in her little only will microcosm and disaster? What's your why why and I think my biggest challenge for you to today guys is to think about that is just because it's not working in just because it doesn't look like you hoped it would look like and just because it's not even if it doesn't even look like what the world says? It should look like it doesn't mean you should change right so a lot of people say if it's not working change if it's not working stop if it if it hurts too much than you should probably turn around and go the other direction and I'm not saying that that's not the case gas because we're not discount that's insanity right the definition of insanity but but my point is have you lost perspective of your why because you're why is what will continue to press you to in through that and I look at it in my own life in multiple multiple lanes my career my personal life. Even when I was playing sports for example sportsman I honestly transparently probably the I probably wasn't that great of an athlete in my in my high school or even even in college I played college football and and we had a great year a great career and I started all four years and and it was it was amazing experience but I I look up and I was like man I was probably the least talented person of them all but I was the last man standing every time I never quit a never gave up a never let in even when it wasn't working in even in my career in so many times in my career. I you know one of the companies I run now. I run it because I'm the last one standing ending like everyone else came and went and everyone else fell to the wayside and everyone else gave up in or just moved on and I didn't and now I'm sitting in it and it's some of the things that we're doing our finally come into to fruition and is because I didn't give up but where do we. Where do we know win to change like never give up period but there's a point where you have to change but I never changed I never? gave up a never stopped pushing. I was always the last man standing and there's a reason why instead three your story what I see you living out and what I see in my life and when I look at people who have have climbed the mountain right. There's this attitude that comes with there's never give up attitude right. That's that's a key. A key contributor to success is if you quit climbing. You'll never get to the top that that's that's. I mean that's just like common sense but what I see is is is it's easy to live by your feelings because when what you see is not what you're getting or what you thought or what you feel deal is not what you thought you'd feel. It's easy to let that drive your decision making yeah but what I see in your life what I see where if we wanna be men who matter if you WanNa make the impact if you wanna find the dream <hes> if you want to achieve the dream that you're dreaming you gotTa make choices because there's going to be dazed that you don't feel like doing it and those are the days you have to choose no not today. We'll keep going because in my life what I seen is when I choose when I do decide to continue moving forward eventually my feelings will catch up choices determine where we go not our feelings absolutely in even times when it hurts. I got this great example just last week in in our feed company that you've heard US talk about on the podcast. <hes> had to make a delivery that I didn't WanNa make I was tired. I I didn't WANNA drive. I driven so so much already that we can. I knew that it was going to be a long day because this particular delivery is always along day no matter how strategically approach today or how early start today it ends up being a twelve hour day when it should only be an eight hour or day but it's it's it's baton a thousand when it comes to that when we when I go deliver feed this particular area and so I didn't want to do it. I was tired my my body was Aken to be honest and you know I kinda had a bad mood food but a new Y C. I knew why I needed to go do it because I'd already set this perspective up within our company of why we do what we do and so we do the things that we do because we we had this this baseline principle that were chasing which is our why right and so because I had a why established I was able to one push through the pain push through the struggle the middle struggle and the physics. I was experiencing both that day hey my body was aching. I didn't driving drunk all day and and my I wouldn't in my head but but but but my baseline was in place my why why are we selling feed and it has nothing to do with the feed. We'll we'll talk more about that another day but because I had my why and that my why would allow me to push through that struggle push through those Tom's where it's not working push to those experiences where men I gave that person everything a had and they still did me wrong like I- I pitched that product the best I couldn't incident amazing product and they still said no like this happened to me so many times in my life where I had a a superior product that I designed signed and I pitched and it worked amazing but they said No. They didn't want it right but but back to the this idea of last week because I had my why I was able to push to the struggle we'll do what I know I needed to do in the day in it in a way that I would have never ever expected because I was obedient to the Wa because I was disciplined in my why not my circumstances I had an opportunity to end my day speaking truth into a man's life that is on the utter just edge of destruction because of some circumstances in his life and because I was willing to do that I was willing to position myself love in just my normal day. It put me in a place to be face to face with this man that I didn't know I was going to be and I got to speak truth in encouragement in life into him and it made it all worth it because I didn't deviate from why I was selling feed. No matter how hard it was no matter how tired I was and there are so many situations I think in each of your lives guys. Who's the people listening that man if you I don't have this foundation to base it off of if you have not established you're Y it will be very easy to quit? It will be very easy to change pass. Sometimes it's not quitting. Sometimes we change our direction too soon because we because it didn't work it didn't work. It didn't work it failed. It felt it felt I mean there's I have a product on the market right now. That's doing very well. It took me almost four years for it to actually go to market. I was so close so many times to just saying you know what forget it just forget. I'M NOT GONNA try. I'M NOT GONNA call that customer again. I'm not I'M NOT GONNA try to change it. I'm not gonNA pursued anymore. I've spent so much in my life my time my money trying to get this product market. I'm done but I didn't in. Maybe it's because I'm an idiot. I don't know maybe because I'm just I'm stubborn and I I know but but I like to think that when I look back on that those four years of my life I had a res ahead this greater vision I was chasing right. I believed in what I was doing so much believed in the product so much that I was willing to go through war to see it come to fruition and the fact of the matter guys is if there's something in your life that you believe then with all your heart it. There's something in your life that you've been given great vision for. If there's something in your life that you are you're intimately knowledgeable about. You may be the single greatest expert in the world on a topic. It doesn't mean that your path to living that out and experiencing the fulfillment in the success of that is going to be easy and I just think I want what I want. You guys to hopefully take away. Today is just that perspective of just because it's hard doesn't mean it's not worth it and you may face a season in your life. He may be facing it right now that you are doing everything right in it feels like is not working at looks like it's not working and the one thing I can give you today. The one thing that you can walk away with today is I'm not saying don't change directions. I'm not saying don't quit. I'm saying don't quit but I'm not saying. Don't quit right like never give up. Uh in the big pitcher Jim. I have to quit a small pitcher to achieve the big picture but don't do it. Don't stop pushing. Don't stop achieve trying to achieve the go until you've established your why. Why are you chasing? Not What are you chasing your what can change your what is not. It's not enough. The what's not enough. Brandon is not enough to sacrifice everything you have in your life to achieve of it but the why is and so don't make a change don't quit. Don't give up. Don't give it. I'm not saying an pivots or good sometimes but you cannot pivot in your life until you've established a why behind whether I'm going to continue to push forward continued to wait do this what seems like quicksand or pivot in a new direction. I think that's the takeaway. I think that's the challenge for all of us myself included. What is your why? If you don't know what you're wise. Today's a great day to sit down while you're driving in the car catch a minute by yourself and start to think about man why because just what you just said is so good the what what we're doing what I'm chasing what I'm trying to be what I want to accomplish. You know all the what's in life are good but they're not enough off to sustain us. They're not ever going to give you the payoff that your deepest soul thirst is is looking for that fulfilment right. It's it's all about why the what can change if you know the why the what can change the wise so important because that is what propels us you think about the most influential people that we know in the world the people that have had the greatest impact on your life. You're listening to this right now. Think about the people who had the greatest impact impact on your life and I would bet you that it's based more on why they do what they do than what they are actually doing the conviction with with which people live based on why they're chasing what they're chasing rather rather than what they end up producing the end the why is so critical and that's the takeaway today if you don't know you're y you gotTA figure it out totally agree. I mean even some more examples. I mean think about in sales think about in in in in your family think about I think about your marriage just to be honest like if like marriage in itself the act of Merit it's hard. It's lots of times. It's painful a lot of times a slight man. Forget get this but not if you look at the Y.. Behind your y the why of marriage in the Y. of your relationship it is so much it is worth fighting for like there's no in my opinion. There's no product liked and if you're a salesman out there you could agree with this. There's no product in the world that that what you're selling is worth the sacrifice you're probably going to have to make to achieve your numbers and chief your goals and into into actually <hes> experienced experienced success in that but while you're selling it is like the other day when I when I went on that delivery it was a big order is a big order that day but I promise you if I didn't experience what happened at the end today being able to speak truth encouragement in life and to that man which is the why I did it. It would not have been worth it now. Maybe it's worth in the world of of having a company in business but but just being honest and transparent me personally in the state that was in that day of just kinda brought down entire not not really mentally there that day I would've went home and I would wouldn't have been the day would not have been worth the effort because because I went and I sold for a sewed some feed and yes it was a good order in it's a big customer and Blah Blah Blah but it wouldn't have been worth it just to be honest but it was because I was able to experience in seed the mouth in real life action that day and I know that because it's why we started the company so we are no got to and the reason I say that is is a real takeaway. Today is guys. Is You have to sit down and establish your why. Why are you doing what you're doing? Why are you chasing what you're chasing? Why would you continue to push through what seems like the most those difficult hardest painful season of your life? If you can identify your why it will sustain anything you ever try to do in your life. It will never be the what you're doing and even how you're doing. It will always be the wide so guys if you find yourself in the midst of a season of your life where you're given it everything you have. Have you feel like you're doing everything right and it's still not enough spend some time thinking about your why. Why are you doing it and if you're Y matches up with the struggle I just WANNA encourage you to keep pushing? Be The last man standing. Don't give up press through hold on for dear life and if your wife doesn't really match up. Maybe it's time to pivot but don't pivot until you know why you're pivoting chew on that this week guys a hope. It's a value to you. Remember whatever you're doing. Whatever you're chasing as long as you chase you are man?
"Try to get like you a little bit with my sartorial out I am mostly offended that that tell you ahead of time now I'm the guy you feel as if you ask me before you got this this this couple Yup Yup this is called because of the ankle now that the injury wasn't because of the ankle you gotta swing to well whatever else you want their bandages live mired with guilt for the rest of his life because of this carjacking analogy mysteriously problematic as it was before so for me Matt Moore playing well last night that's great but I don't have much confidence in this thing getting definitely else about this team was impressive everything else far surpassed our expectations but I do want to ask you speaking of Andy Reid being the quarterback whisperer what did you make of him the argument nobody plays football fair point but let us turn now design Williamson who was dealing with health concerns of his own right now Zion ably and I know this is really good news given really terrible circumstances but the injuries he is dealing with are now on two separate legs the Pelicans are confident about a full recovery but Zion will miss several weeks to start the regular season the games that actually matter so both what Kansas City comes up with not having mahomes will be interesting to see but I don't think they're in full on disaster mode at least not offense well based off of this one game everything I know we'll start with Patrick mahomes Thursday sees Weirdo to Broncos with a dislocated kneecap. MRI results are in and Adam Schefter and the call that he made because for me it reminds me of like okay you warned someone hey don't go driving right now it's bad weather but you go driving and you end up yes and we don't really know how bad either of them are we know that one the kneecap now on the right leg isn't as bad as we feared but the other one the ankle the left ankle is still is out against the knicks tonight because of right knee soreness but that might just be the tip of the injury iceberg reporting that a severe injury has been ruled out and I figure they're gonNA take care to meal ticket in this case now I am old enough to remember when one of the things they Andy Reid had on his resume is that he was the backup quarterback master getting carjacked right it's a thing that could have been avoided or jacked it's a thing that could have been avoided Bomani but not for the reasons that you were warned against and so I under if there is regret here on any reads part because if he did bench him as some advised this thing maybe wouldn't have had the idea to Benjamin the first place wars beholds is expected to miss at least three games Kansas City handily dispatched if Denver but up next to the packers and Vikings Pablo how do you see mahomes plan out for the chiefs regret oh I just want him to recognize that this could have been avoided if he was more risk averse than literally any other injury to NFL game goes through your mind when you hear that repair for the Bos- load managed career in the NBA that we have ever seen I think all of us know that me was always a reached now this thing right here they called a quarterback sneak it is a football player view of us have any recollection of tie with a football player suffering some dramatic this era in that way I'm not sure but Matt Moore when he played was at the top line a backup quarterbacks they seem to have a running game because it's all McCoy again look like he's jumped into time machine the two things I mean if the ankle was a problem looks like he's got at least three weeks offer that to heal and recover so I don't I'm not worried about that part and I don't ask too worried about the resigned as a certain measure of chance interface which is a man of that size playing in the way that he does those joints are always going to be vulnerable so for them to start addle him down the line or see all of these things together and I think that's the most likely scenario and the pessimism I think has to be rooted in his injury history and as off with this and get some knee soreness to say no you're going to miss weeks behind this that seems to be either a an indicator of what the injury might be be an indicator of how they're going to three hundred pounds jumping up about forty inches or so into the air over and over and over again and the reason why we haven't seen someone do that before might be the reason orders his career has been in high school he had a walking boot because of a foot injury in college he got hurt in the preseason he got hurt in Summer League we know when he was in Philadelphia where he did with guys like Aj feeling Donovan mcnabb was her to keep things going is part of where his reputation is great coach came from now can you do that against the spurs he got hurt and so he's GonNa Miss Games in the regular season and you do wonder as we have from the very beginning do the physics Zion Williamson makes sense this is injury inappro- sneak a lower body injury at that I think this is people really hard to look back and say this thing that you should not have done because the argument that you're making of leverage the NBA has in China and we're getting some indicators that maybe China is beginning to thaw on this but this is Adams is what is manageable for him at that point but I also don't know with this injury if any other player on the roster does that player play through this soreness that we're this regime the previous medical staff was famously terrible Anthony Davis hated David Griffin brings in his own staff and they want to be deliberately different now Adam silver over more than anything trying to stand on principle but it is worth pointing out that the reason why Daryl Morey has the ultimate job security right now is because of public release worried about him now well I think part of why we have seen this before because we've never seen someone this is to jump that high right like I don't even know if we have a counterfactual to know what his body should be able to handle it blackness there a useful political campaign item for both sides of the island so he is going to be very careful about how Americans are thinking about the MBA talking about here is it really that severe or they extra cost it's like is this going to be a basketball version of what we saw Stephen Strasburg when he first came into leave because they're like hey the never a consideration as that would have been the NBA discarding core American values with those of another country silver also said of the fallout Maurice comments that quote the financial concept gets the ladder I think it's waiting long enough for plausible deniability to become plausible and Daryl Morey as much as he is safe right now I agree man I think any league under these circumstances would have to worry about the idea that they back down to the Chinese government right like I don't think that part is particular to the NBA it just so happens tim dees at the time one hundred summit that the Chinese Government Wanted Daryl morey fired for his tweet supporting protesters in Hong Kong Chinese government denies this silver says firing more he was Geico Presents Monster Counseling Dracula tell me how you're feeling no understands how these no one will even let me into their house I knock on UPN expect others to having a breakthrough it's not easy to be a vampire but with Geico it's super easy switch and save hundreds on Your Car Insurance Ladies and Gentlemen of America are you ready for a rousing rendition of day we like to call you yeah it's because of business it is because the NBA has realized domestically that because they are the lead players talking about race black players talking about because man if I could take any team for my quarterback to throw against after he threw for seventy eight yards last week it is your former favorites this is have been and continue to be very dramatic unquote Pablo of silver if what's silver is said is true how the NBA stay its course you're going to find out what kind of being a starting pitcher are that arm's going to break down so let's try to preserve this dude for the long haul is that the move that they're gonNa make an is that even a wise move for them to make is this switches excellent excellent for everybody else just for my six fads next up Matt Ryan the Raiders John Gruden's three there's a good enough that they could win this game at the raiders the nicest thing I can say about them is that they are trying to find an identity they got all of these giant offensive linemen that are clearing the what is the level of performance that will put them in a position where they can do this or would it be like ozzy gear with the marlins where you just have to wait enough time and then people understand at the end of the seas I walk but they ignoring me what else I look in the mirror statistics don't even see myself anymore if you don't see yourself clearly here's the general manager of the rockets and that was before he went on messed up everybody's money so let's say the rockets get eliminated in the second round of the playoffs or let's say the rockets putting team is last year he's going to have in Houston barring what what does he need an NBA fight over here's the thing if it goes full year they fire him does that make the Chinese happy not bad and I have to say they're being bad exceeds what I thought they were capable of especially after Antonio Brown got out of there but I think even with the injuries that the for Josh Jacobs they're having you know Derek Carr go and throw the ball as fast as he can as soon as he gets the football that's smart I suppose who raiders traveled to Lambeau to take on these packers this weekend so you win on the raiders upsetting the Pat I am not because all I can confidently say about the raiders is that they are hi that you're going to be able to preserve in that way or is this do that you're going to have to give what you can out of him because the end is always going to feel and I do think there's another aspect you're right it's the pre actually believes that that seems like an awkward fit personalities between those two but that's the story that he's given everybody but I definitely said in his chair many times and said this is going to be darrow more is less move up next the mar- Jackson the ravens are headed to Seattle to take on the seahawks this weekend so you win on the mar matching but the problem is that the packers offense and air rogers or go to light be very flammable raiders secondary on fire I don't trust them to beat the packers as a seat assigned around him but Daniel Jones were watching here now that guy since his debut against the bucks has been not great that whole victory lap might have been a little bit the only wins forty seven games or something like that it's spider having James Hardie you remember those kinds of quotes we govern for teeth at the end of the series last year Dea Fire Daryl Morey event because we go here we go this first topic the rams quarterback making this must see gay I am in on at least one of them doing so because Carla Murray has been playing like the number one overall pick that should have an offense and a new coach Nba seems to be doing more business in China than these other leagues are so it comes up for them now the thing with more either becomes interesting is there for teachers says he's got the best general manager and maybe he I guess past thirty first devi away per football outside their seventy against the run in everything the Rams do is set up I run into ball which they have also forgot I don't know how much of the Ravens is really using Jackson at his best we see flashes of them doing so but I don't know if they're going to be doing that in Seattle yeah I see Lamar in looking at Russell Wilson and maybe picking up a couple of things in terms of how dual threat quarterback look like when they're at the peak of their powers but I mostly here because of that time that's the future of the giants maybe that must see but I have to say after paying a little bit more attention I'm coming around a bit more on Kyle Miriam Skeptical of the little fellas but man I do got army king for the hollow spots on the cowboys resume and they have several of them of course three wins all coming against terrible teams the eagles have also claimed Sunday night you in on this match deciding the NFC East I am in on this matchup eventually deciding it this right now is a big bowl of mediocrity because as much as we are in a little better than they look finally Sam Darnold jets quarterback says the team's offense can be unstoppable when Chris Herndon return mature quietly he's GonNa look like that first game to just got caught up in some statistics now the worst thing about being a football fan in New York who's not from here is they put both teams in his body the guy went from might die on the football field to suddenly be unstoppable possibly and I kind of let him live because I don't know the next time he Thomas Copper and on the car he flipped off his own coach Pete Carroll Versus Earl Thomas in that blood view which I still don't totally understand it all I know is that Earl Thomas is waiting I gotta say though the flipside on this one is first of all the rams the rams I don't even know what the rams look like it's been so long as they look like what we're calling the rams but is bad as muscle Wilson's level of play on Sunday I mean that's a lot to ask right now because Russel Wilson is playing so well that kind of like low key solidifying a hall of fame case for people that's the level of skill that he's put in this year right now I'm not that excited about it well I don't know if the teams that we're seeing right now in either side of representative of what they're going to be an even cowboys probably going to be down those two tackles and see and you know victories over bad teams too we're talking about Washington for instance this is a team in Philadelphia that is beset by injuries so I think it's going to matter in the end habits would've Mario Cooper who it is the Dak Prescott actually throwing the ball to but they're still like a top-five DVR offense it's vitamins talk about how slow down since the early part of the season they've actually who's most responsible for this bleep kicking when there are so many suspects in a mystery like this you keep going up the ladder and so for a game like this in which the only thing I don't eat next time giants Jamie Jones in the G. men take on Calamari and the cardinals this weekend you in on these Genre Vane Assembly three and three team play the one in five games this weekend you in on the rams looking like two rams again I am in on the rams offense looking like the rams offense I he looks like a guy who maybe was yeah playing in the wrong place also what size is that airs well we got our bleep thoroughly kit to get him out of there though that's the question that I have I mean what he's John Elway right second they've got an ownership situation that means that really nobody has the power to move John Elway out of there even if he was not John Right and how do they seem to have any bad offense blind and even the Falcons might be able to exploit that offense to men they're going to pray on that rams defense the Falcons often even worse than he probably should this is absolutely a collective failure yeah the chiefs defense looked like the broncos defense and vice versa and von Miller throughout the old everything elway but the thing is the Kansas City chiefs went into that game with eleven sacks they walked out with eighteen Garett Bolles left tackle selection that elway that do holds the broncos looked abysmal somehow wound up more depressed than the chiefs you go off to John Elway man I think it starts with him at this point is it enough goal for stat line zero on everything in von Miller happens to be I believe the only and first and last draft pick that John Elway took to me one hundred because Andrew Wiggins was not on ESPN annual list of the top one hundred players in the NBA and wiggins objected to that same quote there's not one hundred players better than me so it doesn't matter what people think and quotes Bo is Andrew correct look man a very good basketball player every advanced number I have ever seen his spelled out that he is flatly mediocre there are more than one hundred basketball players who are better than Andrew wiggins good that literally he could not go wrong unless he took a quarterback who wasn't Cam Newton was that many players that were at the top of the draft but he is in fact John Elway what I find pro bowl that's still on the roster like the years after that twenty eleven to two thousand eighteen it's an everything Bagel for John elway as a drafter to their required him being in a draft that was don't tv like on the radio fan you gotta go to in order to watch the other people because they're making wash them sorry two teams but Saquon Barkley coming back and Suceed Jones with saquon Barkley Zip broncos shelby hairs after his team got blown out thirty to six thirty chiefs adding quote it just shows us that maybe we got a little bit ahead of ourselves and he is the replacement player he is the bust living among us because when you watch him he seems like a very good basketball looks like he would be no matter how it looks on video yeah when you say I am among the top one hundred basketball players and someone's like well I have a list and then you go and check out the list and you're like okay is he better than Oh daddy is gonNA stick is his first major league home run right here I'm really actually just he's never fast did more than half a season earns to argue in on that one person in this room who was earlier today and that's the jets fan and ain't nobody actually works in sports business so like it is you see some Paseo last night hurt his on looks like we think this might be the end for him it has been a great career but we want to take this moment to point out the most underrated part Assisi's about these games every possible reason inclosing tally here bro Experiences Gopi something so much but the problem isn't that he's holding the problem is that he's always getting beat is over there to have that offensive line with a quarterback who does not handle pressure very well anyway in Debbie's handling Zabol Chris Herndon could turn this whole thing around I say that he can't because Lakers hard to walk in here right now man I got nothing for you and I know that's about me not Chris hard but deal and remember how the deal happened Glenn Taylor the owner of the timber wolves called him in for a meeting and basically said promise me that you'll be good Andrew wiggins that people believed if nothing else requests about how good of an offensive player he would be because he didn't have that much of a shot but the assumption was at the very least he returned to an all defense of caliber player and he had all largely been as advertised right Jimmy Butler kind of push them around a little bit but he seemed to shake that off okay Andrew Wiggins is the reason they haven't gotten their import because after he didn't get there they still gave him thirty million dollars a year that's that is maybe pass John Wall possibly the worst contract anybody science has nine figures remaining on this has being a place it's about me too actually I have no idea that Christopher was a guy who would make a difference but by the way shout out to Sam Darnold for the heat check as soon as he got any amount of water last year his field goal percentage was career low in the forty ones I believe so this is a guy in year six who's promising a great disappointment with him in forty-eight is he better than Robert Covington no and no you go down the list and still no and no and no and what's weird about what you described which is all true is that he got worse you're years okay now he hits the three val now you are not familiar with Tyler Heroes Luby's he's a little here's a little cocky we're here yes water and I guess they don't have a spray bottle Beaumont oh that's how that happened wow and I get that boxing is like the big that'd be able to say anything likes to be fair to him if he's good right and we don't know we played two games if he's good beyond bill that sounds like something decent at least all right paint anybody to spit on me there is a very flintstones dynamic of like I don't have a spray bottle how can we do this I'll just I'll baby bird mom the bird all of this the physical tools to be a guy that can lock down he's not good at that either like when you look at why it is that Minnesota has not made a leap that we thought it would be curl towns has it'll be said I promise you say actually got to
Casual Friday with Melanie McFarland and Zaki Hamid
"Hey it's patricia murphy. It's friday casual. Friday and this is seattle now. This week we elected a new president. And it seems we're more divided than ever but nearly everyone can agree. We're really gonna miss jeopardy host. Alex travek tv critic for salon. Dot com melanie mcfarland. And w zaki who are here to break down a dramatic week but first let's get caught up governor inslee and his wife trudy addressed the state last night. The governor said our situation today is just as dangerous as it was in march. Kovic is spreading uncontrolled across the state. And he's got one big ask for washingtonians. Please do not have thanksgiving gatherings unless you're positive that everyone there has quarantine successfully for fourteen days. The governor didn't announce any new kobe restrictions but he said new rules are on the way inslee is also making headlines in the other washington. The governor is reportedly being considered for various positions and joe. Biden's cabinet among them head of the department of energy the interior and the epa and a new position in the white house focused on climate. Change inslee has said he wouldn't seek job with the new administration but then again he was running for president himself not so long ago. And we're in for one of the first big storms of the season. Seattle will see wind and lots of rain this weekend so be prepared for power outages and the first huge dump of snow in the mountains up to thirty or forty inches in some places. Good news for the start of ski season but keep those chains handy and check the conditions. If you're planning to drive over the passes we're ending this week. Knee deep in election drama and cova cases and today is friday the thirteenth. Which for a murphy is a double whammy. And i'm not even kidding. I'm on super high alert all day. Today melanie mcfarland is here. She's a tv critic for salon dot com. Hey melanie hi. There is friday the thirteenth thing for you. Are you superstitious. Know i mean. Maybe if i if i want to be surprised yes highly. Imagine me throwing salt over my shoulder right. Now and clinging to a horseshoe right right seki hamid is here. He's the director of community engagement. At kyw's zaki are you superstitions. No not anymore. I guess i was when i was a kid or something like that. You know the friday the thirteenth based on the movies. Maybe but now no really all right all right well as a murphy. I come by it all very honestly because my life is a comedy of errors and you know sometimes it all comes together in the right way and sometimes we say that's live in murphy anyway. I can't believe it but the election came and went and yet we are still living the drama. Ap declared vice president. Joe biden the winner of the election on saturday nearly a week ago. Cities across the country erupted in dance parties including seattle. I know in my neighborhood. There were horns honking all over the north end zaki. What did you see there was. I live in shoreline so there was a few fireworks going on. But it's a pretty quiet neighborhood so not a whole lot but you know we did hear fireworks for sure. Some people thought they were shotguns hall. Yeah right down. Everybody's just a little fireworks. That's where we are right right. Melania you're in west seattle. What's the vibe out there about biden. You know the funny thing was i. I was online right when it was called and i saw more kind of celebrations that were shared on twitter. You know of like there's a. There's a great video of people opening their windows and you hear the sound rising up from the the streets. I'm like that. Sounds great. And i opened my door. And all i heard was a leaf blower celebrates in their own way. I i so. I guess so. President trump still hasn't conceded and neither has lauren culp even though the results are pretty clear in both cases. And i'm not even sure what to do with this because trump will fight it in court but culp. I don't even know what this means from him. Like what do we do with this or doesn't have a job anymore. I mean he was. Yeah so he's literally fighting for a job now. He's not going to get that other job. But i i in a way like i say this very jokingly because it's actually not a joke but i respect the hustle. You don't have a job. But here's why i'm perfect for this job. So you know that is what one does however it also you know is. I don't know anybody who's done that. And said like gone back to the potential hiring employer and said you know what. I really deserve this job. You know what you'd do. You're hiring the hiring player has said no. We don't want you so i think that's that's with culpa. Just strikes me as silliness. But who knows. I also saw his banners in the borat film. So it's just kind of an extension of that you know this whole thing just feels like house of cards right now like both nationally and here in state but not like good house of course like the first season. Oh yeah literally jumped the shark and it was just completely unwatchable. Well i feel like the rest of us going. You know what. I just want to watch the great british bake off right now. I don't wanna hear this crazy drama. It's very hard at this point because it seems like we were waiting waiting waiting waiting even knew right. It wasn't going to play out in six hours. It was going to take some time but this we weren't really banking on. I think this kind of drama. It is fascinating to see the breakdown in the vote. It seattle may be a blue bubble but king county. I read a column this week. Trump did better this time around than he did last time. Fifty thousand more votes. That's fifty thousand people who were like. Yeah yeah. I'm down for this for another four years which you know for a lot of people in seattle was a big surprise and zacky one of the things. I think we noticed the most about this. Election was the huge divide in our country. That map was a huge indicator of you know in some ways a dream that the democratic party had for a long time. How do we move forward here. Yeah i mean partisanship is a hell of a drug right and we've been investing ingesting this kind of drug for decades. So if you couple that with this partisan media ecosystem like these results are really predictable. So i in terms of going forward. I think everybody just just chill out for a little while because right now everybody's super tense about everything But if we just chill for a little while. I think you know maybe some of this will start to tone down in two thousand sixteen. We all kind of rushed to understand a certain group of people right. And we've been doing that. I think for four years. But i think it should be reciprocal to right so if anybody wants to come and ask me about my experience and why the way i did as an immigrant as a palestinian muslim sure i will answer with all the love i have in my heart but i'm kind of done getting out of my way trying to reach out when it's not very reciprocal. We're a very divided country and in a weird way. I'm okay with that right now. Melanie how are you thinking about this. I echo a lot of those sentiments. I will say that. I absolutely do not expect any of those people to reach out and understand Me and my point of view and there's actually an entire media apparatus encouraging that you know that those people not to reach out. So it's you know. I think that it's going to be split for a long time. It's going to split well into this next presidency. That is a biden predator presidency. By the way let us be clear. And it's i think right now. It's early days in terms of figuring out how exactly we address this. There's so much going on beneath the service not just in terms of the large corporate media apprentice. Like you know you're fox news And you know a lot of right-wing radio but there are smaller media amplifiers rising right now to That are probably going to be much more centralized as we you know and become like the standard. A lot of people are going to be retreating even further into and that is very dangerous and it also reinforces partisanship. Yeah yeah there's a lot of heat and not a lot of light right now for sure for sure governor. Jay inslee won a third term. That's no big surprise here. But he's also being floated for a spot in biden's cabinet as energy secretary or climate czar during the campaign. Melanie said he wasn't going and he made that promise. I wonder if the dc allure will be too much though You know one never knows. I mean the one thing about even the you know politicians that we really want to trust Just in terms of their you know who have lived up to their word in so many ways. If something like that comes along they'll never do it. Then all of a sudden you know the political power equivalent of backing up. The brinks truck happens like right. Maybe in this instance Totally so yeah. Yeah i so so. I don't know it'll be interesting i. I wonder how much the like you know. Hometown political machine is kind of go up. Just please don't go you. I don't know we did get some sad news this week. We lost an icon. Alex trebek's died of pancreatic cancer and as the country remains polarized. We can all agree. Alex trebek's was a fine man was one of the best. We just loved jeopardy in my house. Melanie as the tv expert. What made alex trebek's so beloved. I think he was always very even handed and he was. You know there are certain people who saw his kind of cool coolness just in terms when people get something wrong as smug. I never saw it as that. He was never punitive. I think he was just very calm and just like nope. Yeah the times when he would make a big deal about if things were just Somebody got something wrong. It was very funny. I mean one of the means of circulating is the moment that ken jennings mistook What was it like. This is a garden. This word also has a garden tool Known for somebody who is who. It who engages in immoral behaviour and the correct was and that was not what ken jennings and the funny thing was alex. Chavez was like whoa so he you know he was always well exactly. But i think yes. That was really. That was there these very funny and sweet delightful months but he was always a very. He was a champion of knowledge and not a snob and no knowledge Something to be prized and not. It's not an elite thing you know. I think that's that's one of the things that i think jeopardy has always been his great unifying force. It's defies partisanship. because it's about knowledge. Yeah that one really hit hard When the news came we jeopardy in our household and really. We've had this tradition. Since we're the covert started every day at seven o'clock we have dinner and we sit in front wheel of fortune and then we watch jeopardy afterwards and our daughter who seven years old loves both shows right. And she's like she's really into jeopardy now and she's trying to answer these questions and come up with their own and stuff. So it's just a really is just it's heartbreaking. He he was just very kind. Human being and i think the world needs a lot more of kind human beings right now. All right. that's our show for today. Melanie mcfarland is the tv critic for salon.

TechStuff Looks through a Telescope
"Connections between the two and cracks open a few of the cliches that a lot of people have about these two countries from immersion in indigenous culture. Do Americans and Canadians actually understand each other North American A- a- podcast digs for the an invention he called the Guy Kerr or kayaker it's kind of hard for me to pronounce because I don't speak Dutch Uncovers surprising stories that connect North Americans it's a fascinating cross-border conversation sponsored by where it actually did come from and how basic telescopes work I guess you could say it's the focus of this episode guestimation Canada North American podcast spotlights great American storytellers unearthing surprising stories that connect Americans and Caen Kazeem homeland often viewed as a backward and savage place through the eyes of England and by extension the West in general is actually four men Robin had a lot of problems the Sheriff Nottingham was on his back his beloved maid Marian Gets Kidnapped and his accent kept going but it means looker in Dutch will come back to it for this invention to be possible at all at first thing that has to happen is that humans need a very good film titled Robin Hood Prince of Thieves debuted and don't add me that movie is trash as is the case with much of technology it's not really possible for me to tell you who invented the first telescope I can tell you that the person most folks credit with inventing the telescope was the German Dutch inventor Hans Liberty in sixteen o eight he applied for a patent for I'm too great learning and innovation and that part was true I mean the Middle East has a long history of phenomenal achievements but inventing to learn how to make glass no we don't have a record of win that actually happened but our best guess is that glass making became an actual thing around production of iheartradio's stuff works either in welcome to tech stuff I'm your host John Going in and out so you can imagine the stress he was under but he also had some advantages and one of those was his ingenious companion Azeem played by Morgan I loved as a kid but it is garbage it starred Kevin Costner as Robin of Loxley better known as the outlaw Robin Hood and the film is set in eleven ninety four begins listen now on all major podcast platforms welcome to text up telescope in the late twelfth century is not among them that was historically inaccurate Bri the least of the historical inaccuracies in that film but still the freemen and in one scene as Zime helps Robin get a better look at some adversaries using a telescope now that scene is meant to establish the signed to start with this because this is just one of the many fictions fallacies in Robin Hood but I figured it was a fun place to start off this episode about the telescope we're going to look at and so while I now will leave the film Robin Hood Prince of thieves behind just remember that everything I do I do it for you now in strickland I'm an executive producer with how stuff works on Iheartradio and a low of all things tech and way back in nineteen ninety one day Israel was particularly known for this having sand that was suitable for glass making an early glassmakers would mix sand soda four thousand years ago in Messa Po Taymiyya as the B fifty two's would say a region called Toll Mace which is in now modern and lime which could then be heated in a furnace to create molten glass to make a solid glass object this mixture of sand soda and lime would I be put into an open mold and the mold would be placed in the furnace which would be heated up enough for the mixture to become multi glass it would fill up this mold they take the mold out and allow it to cool now if you wanted to make a container something could hold stuff like vase or perfume bottle the glassmakers used a process called core forming and yeah I realize I'm already getting a little far away from talking about telescopes and lenses so we're talking about a bottle whether it's going to be tall narrow or whether it was going to be a wide jug something along those lines then they would create the core out of a mixed but I also think this process is super neat so I want to explain it briefly I the glassmaker would determine what the interior shape of this object was going you're of clay sand water and poop or if you prefer and then they would shape that into the the thing once finalized once it's in that final shape the glassmaker would heat up a mixture of sand lime and soda in a crucible in a furnace off forum they wanted before they would insert a metal rod into one end of it the essentially the end that would be in the open part of the container they would then allow this core to dry after it dried the glassmaker would use tools to further refine the shape of the core trimming it filing it down that creating a molten glass inside that crucible then they would insert this core into that molten glass hold down the nine of molten glass on top of a another layer have contrasting colors and decorated that way you might want to add things like handles to say a pot the glass they produced were not at all suitable for creating any sort of lens those would have to wait for a couple of thousand years cool down a bit they might reheat it a little too to soften the glass maybe add different colors of glass as decorations on top of it you could twirl ally can remove this let cool a little bit and use some other tools like pincers for example to shape the glass while it was still pliable and then after asked makers would then change the color of the glass by the way by by mixing and Metal Oxides because different metals would produce different colors though process is super neat title Rod they would slowly twirl the core within the molten glass getting a full coating on the course or like coating candy apple the glassmaker watch there's actually a lot of videos on youtube about this process so if it sounds interesting to you should really check it out because it's pretty neat to see how these ancient glassmakers when the stuff anyway glass was incredibly useful and it was much sought after and these early examples I'm talking about were really interesting but but the foundation for it came from a pretty simple observation water has a magnifying effect and humans in the ancient world noticed this Nimrod Lens was made sometime around then in ancient Assyria smarty pants Greek and Roman philosophers began to hypothesize about what was actually wondered is there a way we could replicate this where we could create a way to magnify stuff without having to use water this led to ancient perception of light we see stuff because light from some source has reflected off of stuff the light passes through the lens of our got their idea for including a telescope in their screenplay a few influential mathematicians and writers in the Middle East publish their thoughts on what was going on and Asians and Mesopotamia means experimenting with polished crystals usually using quartz around seven hundred fifty e. c. one such lens the saying things out but the fall of the Roman Empire would set the world back more than a stepper to a lot of learning was lost a lot of progress was halted one they've got the basics pretty much right so what is going on well we have to remember that vision is all about light are going on with these materials what was creating this magnification effect how did it really hadn't really work. They made some progress over the centuries in cave lenses a convex or positive lens bulges outward this causes incoming rays of light to converge on One another compared to how fast it travels through vacuum so we can divide lenses into two very broad categories convex lenses and con nice that continued the academic exploration of what was going on in the world of optics was in the Middle East and this is probably where the robinhood crew the focal point for that Lens we'll get back to that then you've got concave or diverging lenses the surface of a concave lens if that we know about in the universe so when light moves through a different material transparent material it slows down a bit fraction the Lens Benz the Light Rays and changes the direction of travel so in a vacuum light will travel in a straight line but the past lenses with elements of each or other parts that these are called compound lenses so it can get pretty complicated but we're going to really focus on a lens is a transparent material with at least one curved surface and the curved surface redirects light this is called the light changes as it moves through different materials particularly as it transitions from one material to another so when we talk about the speed of light we typically bins light so that it hits our retina which in turn then since signals to our brains and that interprets the information it receives in such a way that is and the Lens direct light to the retina you can think of lenses a method of bending light toward a point in this case the lens of our Eyes Flint's I should say so if you think of this in a in a sense of an illustration and you have a convex lens remember it bulges out on search and hypothesizing in the eleventh century Arabic scholars were writing about the early signs of optics carrying on the tradition begun by the Greek and Roman philosophers traveling in those straight lines hits the concave Lens they then bend away from each other they move further out from each other so a projector might use a Cave Lens by the thirteenth century Italian inventors had figured out how to grind lenses suitable for use as spectacles now these were essentially the ADA technology and even when we do use technology what we're really looking at is a conversion of those types of light into something we can actually perceive within the visible spectrum Polish to create a magnification effect this effect was not particularly strong but did show that it was possible to manufacture refracting lenses this led to Maurice bins inward that's like abol it'd bins inside so when parallel rays of light hit a concave lens of lights coming from outside aw elevated in relation to that something that surprised me when I looked into all this was that inventors created the microscope pair of magnifying glasses that one would wear a hold up to your eyes and there were a lot of different stories about who invented eyeglasses though many of these lack any substance the experience vision so what we see is a filtered representation of what is actually out there according to the light that we're able to to spread out across a larger surface like a movie screen now that's not to say all lenses are either convex or concave you can make start to tilt inwards of each other converging to a point further out from that Lens and the point where they actually do converge is inventor of a transformative technology and then you can say that Oh you're village or town or city or country was their home and therefore you are the earliest records we have for a microscope date back to the fifteen nineties the microscope used a pair or sometimes more of a magnifying Lens Steve There's stuff well outside the visible spectrum you know there's infrared light there's ultraviolet light and beyond that's out there too but we can't see it with it is again focus we're going to focus on the simpler versions now early lenses like the Nimrod Lens were made from Quartz Crystal and ground down and are concentrating on a focal point behind the lens so you could use stuff like this to concentrate light into a point and then use that to start a fire Nsen they were a father son team of spectacle makers who happen to live in the very same town as liberty so whomever invented the darn thing appears to the magnifying glass telescopes also use these sort of lenses as their object let's talk about that in a second so our objective what the heck was that about I gotta make a pair of lenses to find out why that was what does that mean so he goes he makes essentially I've been living in Holland specifically Milberg I guess stuff was always sort of fuzzy there and they just really need a closer look whomever was responsible signify the image significantly and thus according to this possibly Apocryphal story the telescope was born he sent a notice to the states general we're talking about light as it travels through vacuum because then the speed of light is consistent it does not change it is also the fastest stop four. They created the telescope I'd always assumed the opposite was true on slipper she whom I mentioned earlier as the person most people slightly concave or divergent so he makes the two lenses as requested and the customer comes in picks up the two lenses holds one of them close to his houses and they weren't super powerful microscopes they were only capable of around three to nine times magnification skip ahead of decades to liberty in his patent application a foreign powers and thus the Netherlands will have a superiority in that regard Zachariah Johnson the aforementioned son in that father son order from the customer to make two lenses one lens was going to be convex thus a convergent and magnifying lens the other was to be I either side in this simple example you would have parallel rays of light coming in from the outside hitting that Convex Lens and then they would at least one version of his story involves him discovering the potential for a telescope essentially by chance supposedly according to the story lipper she got an of the Netherlands for this patent and it would've extended a patent for thirty years he actually offered up a couple of different options he said telescopes work today but first let's take a quick break problems it's human nature to hate problem TMZ but why is that after all problems inspire us to mend things ben things make things better that's why so many people work with also ultimately the government of the Netherlands said we can't give any one a patent on this it's widely known already people are already making these astonished to find out that through this combination he's able to view an image of a church across town as if it were right in front of them it has is problems IBM let's put smart to work visit IBM DOT com slash smart to learn more a copy of what he had already made for this customer just to see what the heck this is all about holds up the concave Lens close to his I the Convex Lens further away and then as the quote unquote inventor of the telescope may also have invented the microscope but others say that honor should go to Hans and Zacharias Yon Sheeting evidence and a few have been covered as being outright hoax. Why is that well because often it's a matter of local pride to lay claim to an now one thing I didn't really cover in that First Section of this podcast is why the heck do we need telescopes I mean what is it about our vision that has this now imagine you've got a lens at the end of a tube and the parallel razor coming in and they hit this this a convex lens the objectively being factor in the first place why are smaller objects or objects that are much further away or both why are they hard to see well remember when right one further away from his eye and looks through them and then happily pays for the order and leaves then according to the story lipper she decides well you can think of the retina is being kind of like a sensor and it's picking up that light and smaller objects or stuff that's further away take up less space whoa that worked on the microscope would claim that he invented the telescope and there was a third inventor Yacob may tes who disputed liberties claim as inventors a princely sum in those days when I come back I'll explain more about the physics of light within a simple telescope before we continue our journey toward how modern the objective lens collects light from distant objects to appoint focus that's within the telescope itself so again that object and then spread that light across more of the surface of the retina and telescopes do that and there are a couple different ways we can achieve this with optical telescopes b. m. on everything from city traffic to ocean plastic new schools to new energy flight delays to food safety smart loves there's no way of knowing who owns the rights to this however they did give libre she and a reward of nine hundred Florence which I am told is indeed well if you don't WanNa do that you could get an annual pension from the government and in return if you do this I'll promise I will not sell this telescope invention one is through the lenses I've mentioned already that would be called a refracting telescope and the other is through mirrors which will get to later and those are reflecting telescopes our eyes are gathering lots of light reflected off of lots of surfaces and the light coming from a small distant object can be dwarfed by the light coming from everything else and eventually the inwards with relation to the tube within the body of the telescope itself now with a modern day telescope that's not a he said that when we see something what's actually happening is that the lens of our I is directing light reflected off that object and sending it to our retina that we can't register it we can't recognize it so to see it more clearly we would need a lens that could take the light reflected off movement one interesting point about this type of telescope if we were talking specifically about using convex lenses on both the objective lens and is the Ip -s or ocular Lens and that magnifies that light from within the telescope and spread it out so that virtual representation of the real thing that the objective lens has in focus and this virtual object is much closer to your eye than the real object is scope itself the second lenses behind that focal point as the light converges and diverges within the telescope the image flips upside down so if you draw the so let's start off with refracting telescopes a simple refracting telescope uses a pair of lenses like what liber she discovered back in sixteen o eight I'm from one another they keep on going till they hit something and and they reflect off of it so the objective lens faces out into the world and the other land is out it all makes sense the light rays are coming from the outside world right and the the light rays that are on the top so you get the effect of magnification liberties early telescopes could magnify stuff to about three times the relative size to the viewer's perspective so not incredible but an since then because it's a convex lens at Ben's The light so now the rays are now converging into the tube to a focal point so they're bending around the Great Lakes to the real people who inspired a Tony nominated come from away set in Gander Newfoundland on nine eleven north Americana Ernie they hit that focal point and they keep going in a straight line and so the light that was at the bottom of the objective lens is at the top of the person using the telescope in a parallel fashion so returns the light to a parallel alignment so what you view through that I- piece is all converge into a point of space and then just create a point of light those rays will continue on in a straight line so now they're diverging of the optical or the ocular Lens the light that was at the top of the objective lens is at the bottom of the Ip -s Lens so that's why if you're Galileo's telescope which I'll get to in a second those raise would hit a focal point and they don't just stop there right they it's not like the rays of light if you think of it an respect of the telescope the top of the telescope part you're looking at a cross section of it they get bent so that they aimed downward relative to the telescope the light rays coming from the bottom side of the Lens for example then get bent upward with respect to the telescope and they continue on the kicked is too small or too far away for any light reflected off of it to be registered by retinas? It's not that the light isn't getting to us but it's so small compared to everything else sir on that sensor so that's part of it is just it's it's taking up a tiny years amount of space on the retina so we're getting less information to our brains also and the ocular lens the Ip -s Lens or the optical ends if you prefer if you're using both of those as convex lenses and your got the focal point inside the looking through a telescope the object you're looking at would be upside down If we use such a telescope to look at a celestial body that started that light takes up more space on your retina so these diverging rays hit that second lens that seconds than Benz the light in a way that directed toward the I deal because top and bottom in space as largely unimportant if we wanted to use it in a terrestrial sense like to use the telescope to look at stuff around you on earth like let's say that you have a spyglass in your pirate then looking at a distant object might be a bit of surprise because it would certainly be flipped upside down modern tells the early inventors learned that there was a precise art to getting the distance correct between these two lenses you couldn't just have them one in front of the other and everything works out perfectly to really get it right you needed to take the absolute value of the focal length of each lens and then calculate the difference between them the difference represented the distance between the two lenses you would need to produce the magnification effect you wanted so are we figured that out were all those pirates we see in romanticize movies looking at stuff upside down the whole time well no so while my description word toward a focal point the diverging lens would reverse the direction of the bend before the race could hit the users I so the top and bottom wouldn't switch everything would still be in the proper alignment as the institute and Museum of the history of science puts it quote the eye piece is six of objective lenses and pieces and all that sort of stuff is accurate for modern refracting telescopes the type used by astronomers and seafarers from a positive value which is the convex lenses focal point the focal point for a convex lenses behind it then you add the negative value that's the concave lenses focus the Ip -s lens the Concave Lens so instead of all converging on a focal point they I hit this gave Lens which then Benz the light again and then the concave lens causes the raise to diverge returning to a parallel arrangement the Galileo's telescope the distance between the objective lens and the eye piece or optical lens is equal to the Algebraic sum of the two lenses focal lengths that is the distance between the Lens and its focal point so concave lenses actually have a negative focal point the waited in front of the focal point of the objective and a distance from the focal point equal to the focal length of the IP's end quote that around those a sixteen ten to about sixteen seventy or so followed the Galileo method Galileo began using point that's behind the lens however before it gets to the point where all those rays have converged into a single point of space those rays hit parallel raise it hits that Lens and Benzion Word just as we've been talking about all the way up through this podcast they start to converge on a focused confusing but if you were to draw it out it makes a lot of sense you would have the convex objective lens at the front of the telescope lights coming from outside world as for astronomical observations not long after liberties work became widely known so like by sixteen ten Galileo like liberty used a convex focal point of a concave Lens is in front of the Lens not behind the Lens. It's a little counterintuitive so you and Lindsay the objective Lens and a concave or diverging or negative lens as the eye piece Lens so like coming in through the objective lens would bend in point and the you get the difference essentially because it would have been the same as if you subtracted a positive sum from another positive sum the result is how far apart those two lenses this should be to produce the magnification effect now the amount of that magnification is also dependent upon the focal length of the two lenses specifically Vince upon the ratio between the focal length of the objective lens and that of the Ip Slim's so you take the objective lens focal length you divide it by the focus length of the optical lens and later telescopes ones that would use two convex lenses rather than adding those two links together you would subtract the focal length of the optical figures with the Galileo's telescope because one of the values was negative the greater the diameter of the objective lens the one that's facing out to the world leads the focal length of the objective lens now remember that in that case the focal length for each lens is a positive value that's the only reason that we had to add the more light it can collect that seems pretty obvious right the bigger the lens the more light it's going to be able to redirect inward to the telescope by the the reason why telescopes even have tube there a couple of reasons one is to keep out dust and other things that could obscure the lenses will actually be and the greater the magnification of your telescope which again depends upon the relationship between the focal length of lenses the less field the greater the diameter aperture of the objective the more light it can collect generally speaking the more light it collects the brighter the distant image but another is it helps block out any light that you don't want to come and hit your eye you want to really focus on whatever object you're looking at so view you would end up having so the objective lens diameter was what determines how much light comes in it does not necessarily determine how much magnification you get that is based more on the relationship between that lens and the Ip Slim's but then the amount of magnification you get determines how much feel overview you have if it's a greater magnification you're going to see less of the night sky in the view of your telescope now there are practical limits that you hit using lenses because the bigger the lens the more light it can collect but it also means that those Lynn's lenses have have more man us that means the telescopes themselves get heavier as a result moreover if a lenses too heavy the weight can actually affect the shape of and then the Lens warps under its own weight the lights not GonNa go where you planned so you start to reach practical limits of what you can do using refracting telescopes the measures one meter across or forty inches or a little more than three feet in other words it weighs around twenty-six tons that's how alarmist refracting telescope objective Lens that still in use today is installed at the Observatory in Wisconsin Millennium that telescope right so scratches smudges dust all that can make it difficult for light to pass through the Lens and there's also the issue with lost light some Asian but adding more lenses beans telescopes get way more expensive delicate and heavy there's a different approach the doesn't rely on lenses at all lenses can warp it and since the lens shape determines where the light is going to go that's a bad thing if you've designed a lens to direct light in a very specific way I e hands which has not yet happened as the recording of this episode another practical limitation of refracting telescopes is that the lens must be in really good shape front colors those different wavelengths have different focal lengths so the focal length of blue light is different than the focal length for Red Light Org number thirty thirty rocket mortgage by quicken loans push-button get mortgage problems it's human nature to hate problems but why is that to the public since the spring of two thousand

Eta Moves Back To Sea as Central America Tallies Dead Toll
"Presented by raytheon technologies our nearly two hundred thousand engineers researchers and people with purpose are building the future today.

That's the future of aerospace and defense learn more at rtx dot com tropical storm. Ada moves back to see. As central america tallies death toll by claudio ascalon and sonia peres as the remnants of hurricane. Ava moved back over. Caribbean waters governments in central. America worked to tally the displaced and dead and recover bodies from landslides and flooding that claimed dozens of lives from guatemala to panama. It will be days before the true toll of ada is on its torrential. Rains battered economies already strangled by the covid. Nineteen pandemic took all from those who had little and laid bare the shortcomings of governments unable to aid their citizens and pleading for international assistance. Shortly after honduran. President juan orlando hernandez asked neighboring. Guatemala for help. Rescuing residents stranded near their shared border thursday guatemalan president alejandro matei said at least fifty people had been killed in landslides in his own country. Most of them in a remote town rescuers struggled to reach guatemala's national emergency agency later said only that at least fifty people were missing in san cristobal pause. The us national hurricane center forecast that parts of nicaragua and honduras could receive fifteen to twenty five inches of rain with forty inches possible in some isolated parts. A week of rain. Spoiled crops washed away. Bridges and flooded homes across central america. Hurricane aid is arrival. Tuesday afternoon in northeast nicaragua followed days of drenching rain. As it crawls toward shore it's slow meandering path north through honduras pushed rivers over their banks and pouring into neighborhoods where families were forced onto rooftops to wait for rescue. Marta julia portfolio sixty two fled her san pedro soula neighborhood before dawn thursday with relatives. They paused at a gas station on dry ground until they were told to move on. We don't know where go because we don't have any place to shelter. She said her son who stayed behind. The family home told her water was up to the third floor. I would say the national capacity has been overwhelmed by the size of the impact. We are seeing said monte matthew honduras director for the international humanitarian organisation care.

Sandra solace said via twitter that the destruction that eight a leaves us is enormous and public finances are at a critical moment because of covid. Nineteen we make a call to the international community to accelerate the process of recovery and reconstruction observers are already anticipating that the havoc wrought by ada will pressure more people to migrate from countries. That are already some of the primary senders of migrants to the united states border in recent years. Now with this situation this is going to be an exodus. A massive exodus of migrants toward the north said matthew late thursday tropical depression. Ada had maximum sustained winds of thirty five miles per hour and was moving north at eight miles per hour. The forecast had it strengthening to a tropical storm before nearing the cayman islands.

Whatever comes out of central america is going to linger awhile said colorado state university hurricane researcher fill slots back. I'm not convinced we're done with ada. That's because what's left of. Ada still has spin which is hard to kill off and that should help it. Reform said noah hurricane climate scientists. Jim khasan once it reforms and heads toward cuba.

Talkin' The Star: What went wrong against Green Bay?
"Hi I'm Arial Jim. Ross I'm the host of reset a new podcast that explores the unexpected ways technology impacts our lives it was the first climate change correspondent on American nightly TV news and before that I was a science reporter for the verge and I learned that tech isn't feet and you'll automatically get our very first episode when it drops on October fifteen every day and when I see those changes I see worlds I can't wait to dive into question these days every story is tech story we're going to show you why subscribe to reset for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app right now you can hear my conversation with Care Swisher about our philosophy really bad team they get to possibly play Luc freaking Falk Week so I am happy about that what's up guys this is the talk in the Star podcast I'm your host connor another week no loss cowboys land three into on the young season after dropping to the packers at home oh boy DAK interception really ruin things in it just seemed like everything went downhill ever since that play and it was just an ugly performance everybody obviously DAK missed a lot of throws amaury draw turning to an interception the defense was pathetic dove to it coal I'll start off with you what was your initial thoughts after going back we're watching the game which saw which some of your initial thoughts after after in this game and we're going to stick to this game today we'll be back later in the week to talk about the cowboys week six matchup against the jets like Dalton said but I want to get straight in stuff the dallas cowboys are still three into and tied for the lead in the division that's coming up they're going to get back on track again watched the beginning of the game is my TV was out it was storming here I am so first quarter and a half an idol listening on the radio a second look it wasn't as bad as the the the broadcasters will ask I mean yes hard to stomach actually I couldn't tom in week five what's up guys are we just going to going to be depressed on this podcast absolutely not connor you gotta hunt the Good Livesey here with my co host don't Miller and Cole Patterson follow us on twitter at Connor NFL draft at don't be Miller at Cole l Patterson it was just off all the way around so Washington again it did not make me feel much better at all yeah in Col- that's that's that's talking about the game is going to be positive technically the cowboys are still in first because they do have to division wins out WHO's counting yeah we're GONNA die oftens performance was terrible went back and watched it was like manage snot that they had trouble on offense it was just literally any opportunity they had to shoot themselves in the foot they did whether we're back and watch the ultimate too I did feel probably a little bit better about the offense because in the heat of the moment you know when you or any points in the first half you're kind of like this I afterwards I turned the game off during because during the live games I'm just a fan I let my emotions very little assessment there I'm GonNa get to Dalton too but I'm not going to say my opinion is different than yours but I think when we watched it the second time when but I'm very emotional then when I go back through and I watch games on twenty two or afterwards when I'm just so I actually haven't gotten to the defensive all twenty two yet I went back and watch the game in the broadcast teaching it that is no emotion so I don't get upset when I'm watching the all twenty two I just go through and I watch and I haven't during that time I'll still give things that I see and I'll do things from somewhat a writers or evaluators perspective that is blue chip scouting not Tom Obviously Garri blogging boys work but if you would like to also read my weekly on twitter earlier but you could literally watch that game like if you if you were like in and out not watching the game you could watch that game ago while this is the greatest performance from Dak Prescott they could have screwed that up they did moves at Bo just seemed like in key situation stay if you take away may not take away but if you removed missile so it's kind of a lot better about the offense the second time I watched a M- obviously literally anytime onto the defense in all twenty two yet because like I said I focused on the offense I I always write a weekly piece about Dak Prescott for my website climbed out of that huge hole or nearly climbed out of it it was just like they kept shooting themselves in the foot everytime they had something going they would he's more of the same as you cite what what was going on like they've made it harder on themselves than they had had to do this still like the back Prescott pieces on my website that would be great they come out on Tuesdays I was less upset about the offense man I thought I was -tunities and they just couldn't get everything together yeah I don't I'm going to get to you but like you said it's both both you can look at it both beat themselves up they would turn the ball over they would air roger drive they made Aaron Jones looked like he was the second coming of Barry Sanders wins on my sleeves you can see it on twitter I go pretty crazy during these games I want to see the Dallas cowboys win is because I feel like you could say man if you take a few days away from this and I'm going to stick the Daqing I know we're going to talk about his performance here in a second but it's like we're talking about scene but then if you came in the room at ten seconds later you'd go wow this is the worst performance object Prescott we've ever seen and it was really when you say the best of times and the worst catching yes it was on his back shoulder but it's not like he was crazily extended we've seen him make much more difficult catches game in and game out it was over but offense had moved the ball the entire time they just like you guys said shot themselves in the foot time after time after time and that got really oh but it's not agree though that they're accurate on like sixty percent of those throws that means out in front under twenty yards is in the that's the way I kind of described it but Dalton watched the game today what what was your initial thoughts going back and watching the the all twenty two and seen it first second time it could be going into it now I knew watching the game live when I did now I turn it off when it got to be like thirty one to three or when I saw that it was going to be thirty one two three like Baker Mayfield who lived in clean pockets at Oklahoma now the second one I thought was a lot worse than house describe it was just very bad to see out the before and it was just an overall terrible before washing get back on Washington again to go back and watch you saw I guess there's really my first time watching it choson like I said I can watch it live it was just very ugly obviously uh-huh an obvious drop I mean that Cooper catch that ball a hundred times out of one hundred it was still within his cylinder yes he into slowed down a little bit yes he determined evac coming out the best of the best of the best at that distance are only accurate and that pass for me would have fallen just out of my accuracy scale best of the best only or accurate on those passes about sixty percent of the time seventy on the absolute high and those guys like cuyler Murray and guys the offense first couple plays looked it's going to be easy dicta roll through these gain they're going to score and all that and to an extent they still move the ball and everything it was fading away it was very much last year Dak Prescott twenty seventeen neck Prescott the lower body mechanics were atrocious and that's why the throw sailed hell that pass was ever getting them now I don't know Martinez would have intercepted but he would have at least gotten one hand on it the third one was the annoying to me that I wanted to see when I went back through and watch it exactly what went wrong with the offense and I would like to talk about the interceptions the first Lindor from the head to the waist and out in front or on the body that was a little bit behind the body so that wouldn't have been accurate but even the has to be an absolute perfect in that can't be the case but keep going yeah because nobody is perfect I go through and when I evaluate college one in the Red Zone I believe that ended up not counting that was the worst decision he made his mechanics totally fell apart. I've never been the one to make excuses and it almost felt like an excuses when you watch it on tape he actually like lined up to throw that ball before Gallup came out of his I wanNA talk about that one because that's one that upsets me because of what Dak Prescott said he said that he was trying to get the Amari Cooper Michael Galata shots and everything you know those are obviously great it just seemed like they couldn't get anything going like the removing the ball down the field and I guess in that black and if you're throwing pass counting on the worst officiating crew I've seen in a long time a bad decision what do I like when I sold there is that he saw net king had leverage over top of the Salva That Sullivan intercepted but I'm more upset about the the read on Blake Martinez leverage than I am the Sullivan actually he has to catch that ball of fourteen point swing real quick before you're the second one I think it's funny how everyone wanted you know like the Bonnie's be out in front of him while you're correct it was ended up challenge on the Amari Cooper catch that ended up being fiasco but that one was bad the one to cooper that was wasn't there but oh yeah yeah yeah it was the throw it was a twelve yard it was it was a slant route but it was a deep slant and didn't really run a great route and King and actually was Shannon Sullivan just made a hell of a play on that ball he was going down into the flat his leverage was in that direction he just came back in because of a penalty that I'm not so sure wasn't a makeup call for the the the fifteen yards on the the perspectives and you have to feel good about that I mean they can still move the ball and everything's cookie yes she was just bad taste sprite a better way to put it because they had so many options Gallup was going to be able to come back and get that ball if he wasn't getting the crap slapped him on his head like I wasn't a for the one in the red zone because that's a kirk cousins type red zone attempt and then the the one two aw so that was a fine play until I heard his excuses blackley but it was it was dumb and then what was the other one the other one especially fans that for some reason don't like the quarterback of their favorite team make the quarterback position impossible to play because that is a ball that is four to six I bet not the reason why it ended up being intercepted plus it was a bad decision to throw it in the first place I didn't like the concept either the throat to to gallon need a great play what upset me about that throw is that Blake Martinez was jumping that pass behind Randall cobb there was no way in intercepting the past if that makes it yeah correct and a lot of what you said I definitely agree with the one in the end zone is just inexcusable they got bailed out that's not a bad interception in my opinion I mean again it wasn't a absolutely perfect throw but that is a okay throw in that situation where you given the distance the the the we're GonNa sit here and critique afford six inch off past that's twenty I don't know if it was twenty five yards down the field bruce wasn't wasn't a slant it wasn't a a screen it was just your smartphone or laptop it's the way we develop new medicines it's how we compose music it's our connection to friends and strangers tech is changing deeper post route that was just that's not a a close easy throw to make all the time even though he was wide open but but but again we're just going to nitpick four to six Yar forty inches behind Amari cooper you know when you're thinking about full time it's probably four inches off were you four six inches off where you'd like it to be it doc through went out in front of a couple of weeks ago and he dropped that one too so it's kind of like the ones where everybody was like oh he was you know he was scared to get hit it's like so well people said that it was up the wall but it was just a deep post across the middle of the quarterback played really well he tried to fit into a window that probably leverage in in were that ball and real quick something that I've heard a lot is a when when guys are covered tighter they're able to make these crazy throes as you know in the tight windows and stuff yes of course but it's just like a downfield throw like with Gallup last year were Dak was overthrowing him he was trying Doc Prescott gave him the opportunity to catch it and he didn't do it and I guess the frustrating thing is and I know you say this a lot is we fans six inches it's just it's gotten to a point where it's impossible to talk quarterbacking with a lot of people but as you said you know the second one that was one in real time that I sit kind of break so it was almost like read he was throwing a spot with a little bit of anticipation except like you said Calvin got absolutely mauled throughout the entire stem and you said that was like I think that was just an instance where he thinks he trusted his arm a little bit more than yes see I thought that he just lost Sullivan is what I originally that'd be perfect and he was missing him and you're still killing him about it so it's the guy is open just give the guy a chance to catch it he had five yards of separation mountains it almost the same exact route on the same exactly with the safety almost insane music spot so it's like if you're gonNA say the money's about in front of them dropped out in two weeks too so it's kind of putting yourself in a is a fantastic athlete needs long so almost yeah and it only one the only two on really super upset about Cochran stop it he just couldn't stop break back onto the ball is weight was off four because king with slapping the shit out of his head he just he couldn't turn and go get the ball donny that wasn't the case when I saw it in all twenty two it's easy to when they've reshow that play I was like you know when you watch it it's kind of like he just thought that there was no chain in heck that that guy was going to get to that spot and Solomon made a heck of a play but like you said when you go back and watch an all twenty two year old there's no way that is going to get completed

pretty much we're gonNA put a bowl in this game is as much as ugly bow that's going to be and we're going to move on to week six later in the week so daunting to positives the the Info you need to make the right calls for your lineup no fake debates no politics just sports for real sports fans the best news of all it's free a little bit too much to give to positives that you're taking away from this game I'll give to positives and I'm going to take away from this game and coal you'll get to positives that you'll take away I'm Holly Anderson I'm Ryan Nanny I'm Jason Kirk and we're the host of the shutdown forecast your avengers of college football podcast it says in the script onto riff I don't mean free for a week or a month or if you have some special cable package it's totally completely free for everybody you don't even need a log just took away from this game what would those be all right so one of the positives was the offense I thought that the play calling was fine for the most part twenty four seven in their coverage is just focused on the game they bring you the latest news highlights previews and reactions to all the onfield action fantasy sports experts did you talk about college football every now and then like mascot fights announcers fleeing the early and unfashionable coaches where now if you want to take college audebert could make a play on it but let's take a break let's come back I know you know it's funny because when we did this show last week we went through and gave grades like about this football team so I do want to get into some of the positives we're GonNa take our first break we'll be right back we are talking to star on second and five and everybody on twitter lost their minds but they lost their minds because he only got one yard if he would have gotten sick shards Aaron picked up the first throw is what I was saying I think it was just a situation where his decision making wasn't great because he thought he could probably get that ball into somewhere where I don't think he thought he could and I don't think he going to say if you don't want to pay Amari Cooper twenty million dollars let them walk draft it's a bunch of hot tapes from people who don't even believe what they're saying just beating the same topics into the ground but CBS sports HQ change all that it's a network that streams live rich from the defense by doing a comeback and give some positives that we saw it kind of try to right the ship a little bit as we head into week six I think there's a lot to I have for this game is simply that Michael Gallup is back in Michael Gallup if receiver in the first round next year and let him develop as the number two guy and have mike reality or number one running backs don't matter and one slinging all around the field was just defending run calls now the other positive is almost the exact opposite because we gave a lot of negative grades to the offense and then we gave a lot of positive greet to the defense I don't WanNa give grades but I do want to talk about some of the positives that we saw the boys on twitter at blowing the boys and make sure fallen all the blogging the boys work on blowing the boys dot com thanks to those guys in Fox media for allowing us to host this podcast talk cowboys what that means and basically what I mean is it's already spoiled every Tuesday we talk about everything from cooking disasters to pro wrestling too unfashionable pants worn middle school we also I don't think he's going to be a particularly high end number one but he is a high end number two at this point and if you're going to invest in another guy that bandwagon I think it's just fine I think that you can look at you know three or four throws three or four play calls and go what the heck was that he's checking the ball down he's taking a sack whatever I'm fine with it I'm totally okay with the aggressiveness that he's playing with a wish the decision making receiver one slash really really high and wide receiver to and I think that you could take it the way that you said you could say hey let's save money and let's move on there was a little bit some people upset during the Tony Pollard drive where four straight carries you gotta carry be a top three wide receiver in the NFL his size weight speed the route running ability is accused of their two on and even with the drop issues I think you would be okay with paying him eighteen to twenty I think I think down nobody would have batted an eye and that is mean defending the run game there so I just want everybody to know that I missed opinion before the season started that I thought Dak Prescott could play to an MVP level and the first three weeks did the fourth week the game plan kind of I think I could be okay with that I'm going to take what you just spin it just a little different and that's that I think that this this cowboys you look at
The True Measure Of Hurricanes
"For decades the staffer simpson scale has been the scale used to warn people about the destructive power and approaching hurricane but recently has come under fire because it is based solely on winning and devon speak to the hazards associated with a hurricane such rainfall so a group of civil engineers have developed a model in which they say could truly for cats the power of a hurricane today we talked to a member of that group stephanie pilkington to discuss the inner workings of that model will dive into a discussion on how one day we could use such models to protect life and property unexplored the true measure of a hurricane stephanie thank you for joining us on the weather geeks podcast thank you for having having me now stephanie is a phd canada in a researcher at the center for risk based community resilient planning and i don't know if you're based in maryland i i used to live in germantown so i used to drive by of a very large this center a on my way to work everyday often there's a big presence in boulder colorado where you based on based at colorado state university which is in for calling absolutely yes so you are part of a larger sort of a a network of mr researcher so we're really happy to have you here when one of the things it really came up and i this discussion really dot dot dot going after hurricane florence and twenty eighteen this notion that the staffer simpson scale just maybe inadequate the capture the feed the the true danger or risks associated shady with hurricane a before we get into that will go dark quite a bit into a little bit about yourself and what you do witnessed okay my name is stephanie pilkington i'm currently essay phd candidate at colorado state university a lot of the work focus on is modeling community resilience from multi hazard events or natural hazard events in we look at both impact in recovery overtime following such a bad no are you is you're back get round prior to you're phd worker uae meteorologist or you're civil engineer you little bit of both i see a little bit of boats but my degrees their own civil engineering without a focus cy kind of built in it's related meteorology for example i also storm chase so so when's the last time you've been out there chasing move i could knock it out this past spring but a spring previous being in colorado is actually kind of beneficial for that yeah do you interacted with the folks at colorado state university before those listening to the podcast has one of the the the better a graduate programs and atmosphere science is in the in the nation so do you interacted with any of the folks over there i i know several colleagues there in department yes actually in a lot of my friends there in that department 'em but i have taken classes over with that group to yeah so you certainly definitely you're sort of sharing both sides of the fence here by by i did colleagues of mine i don't know if you have the new and the doctor brian bledsoe with their civil engineer accusing civil engineering their association but he's now here at the university of georgia with meaty happening to him a name but i haven't had okay well we'll move on i just wanna give him a little shout out let's talk about why win is not necessarily the best measure of the impact of the power of hurricane so window is just one of many variables occurring when a hurricane makes landfall fall you know we obviously know did hurricane spring with the storm surge intense rainfall but there's also this idea that certain locations have different infrastructure quality certain locations have higher population densities these all play a role so any overall impact of that hurricane right in that thing we've seen that with recent storms perhaps like hurricane florence hurricane harvey i wanna kind of talk about hurricane florence were because that's really where this discussion a gain traction in the broader meteor although i suspect you you've been working on this problem for quite some time it was interesting because when we saw hurricane florence approaching the carolina coastline we had this sense that it was going to be a fairly significant storm actually it it it lowered its intensity some as it got closer to landfall but we is meteorologist always knew it was going to stall out the models were pretty bullish on that happening it's going the doll and kind of sit there and quite a bit of rainfall unfortunately only some people once they heard the intensity of the staffer sense of scale is lower than expected some people kind of let their guard down went back into their homes but these were some of the same places they were always going to get the flooding associated with this rainfall so that's a big challenge that's a that's a big challenge and when you're trying to save lives and property so talk to us a little bit about what you saw what what you were thinking as you saw hurricane florence playoff yeah i had the same thought we now we're looking looking at the fact that it was gonna intensity why you know slowdown for lack of a better term that doesn't necessarily mean they impact lessened a lot of the times and were looking at impact flooding is major contributor to that an if the precipitation didn't decrease the forecast and precipitation that doesn't necessarily mean you're impact decreased know a couple of areas that felt a brunch at the impacts from florence did so because of heavy flooding so what ended up happening is when we communicate using the saffir simpson scale people think that or seem to interpreted as that steve bottom line risk they're looking at when in fact there's multiple variables at play here just because it went down in wednesday does not mean that the rainfall forecasts necessarily change same thing for harvey harvey did downgrade once it made landfall but it sat there in and continued to dump rain in that case rain was the big flood producer in the big damage producer with harvey i i i i wrote an article in forbes a week before landfall saying it's gonna dump thirty to forty inches of rainfall and even more but yet i hurt people afterwards saying wow we don't think it's gonna be that bad we really didn't get all the data was suggesting it was going to be that bathroom rainfall perspective but i think one of the things you're alluding to is people with hurricanes there so it tuned to the win damaging the win the profile of the storm if they underestimate what a what a storm may not even have a name anymore kundu and it sits there and dumps rainfall for days oh definitely though is actually the motivation behind starting doing this work because i was in new england for hurricane sandy you know we had i kept hearing people say oh it's just a category one who's barely but it's enemy landfall in the case of the drives me keep going but i do better oh yeah absolutely i drove me nuts hearing god's just that category one in you know i almost got a sore throat from all the times they kept saying okay well it may just be a category one but it's new york there other hazards you know new york has built out from the shoreline you start bringing surgeons that factor if you go above this the walls of where they built out okay now you're gonna flood sea water into manhattan you know it doesn't really matter what the windows at that point if you're still gonna bring the sea level rise up yeah yeah right exactly and so this notion and i think the national weather service has really kind of tried the shift the narrative some by moving to what's called impact impact base forecasting but i do think he sort of hurricane scale this after simpson scale is so ingrained in the culture of society right now that people here in cat three cat for cat five and they make different decisions based on the category this are we saw this with hurricane michael in florida last year a i thought by monday two days before it actually made landfall and it was probably going to be at least a category three storm and i wrote to the f that affecting forbes ended up being even stronger than that but i guess my question was at what point is a cat three in a cat four really different in terms of how you make decisions but when i talk to people there in florida and other places and i talked to some social science colleagues they said yeah people have these different sort of decision injuries in their mind depending on whether they think it's a cat four cat three or even a tropical storms that your experience oh definitely any other thing that's interesting is that their neighbors will influence their decision as well if say they have one neighbor that decides they saw this hurricane ike one neighbor decides to evacuate than others will decide to evacuate in a kind of snowball effect so it definitely there's different ways they interpreted and i think the goal when we were looking at communicating impact is ultimately to kind of mirror that almost dependence we have on the saffir simpson scale and the way it's done by creating a similar kind of quote unquote ranking system but it would be coupled with that stuff there simpson scale in other words if you looked at say 'em hurricane sandy you'd say okay that's a category one impact level five of them so were still with in a kind of scheme that the public is used because we've i'm so dependent on the saffir simpson scale but now we're trying to bring in all these other factors as well you know it's interesting the the question but i i was going to ask you nixon you used to give you a nice leading his do you think the criticism of the saffir simpson scale is warranted at now one of the things i don't think it's often communicated when we were warning about hurricanes and the public is that it is they win scale it back to the saffir simpson windscale scale and so it does what it with designed to do quite well actually but it's just evolved into sort of the end all be all scale that people used for hurricane threats and i think that's where you're research is sort of trying to change the game a little bit so do do you think the criticism of its failure or just just a bit sort of overblown a little bit of both it depends on the context 'em i think when we start looking at the dependence on it as a society when we look at it relating risk of an event that i think it's justified i mean you're right it does do it it's designed to do it ranks it by the win speed and i've even had publications where i've gotten comments back to state the change to say the staff simpson windows scale specifically pointing that out so more suing the communication side i think it's warranted it's not wrong and what it does but we just become depending on how it's moved forward in communicating risk yeah no i i agree with you kinda gave us a hint clue about you're model you're pro cheer when you were answering the question previously a tell us a little bit about your model what what the parameters of factors that go into the model oh yeah sure so the hurricane impact of a model is essentially uses artificial neural networks to the form of an eye to communicate multiple input parameters to in overall impact level which is in terms of economic damage economic damage we chose because it's one of the ways we rank hurricanes after the fact you know this is the costliest hurricane in history so on and so forth de input parameters we chose are you're hazards of course you're winning speed you're maximum accumulated precipitation you're maximum storm surge and then of course the population affected affected the amount of people that reside within the area of tropical storm force winds as it's making landfall in then from there we also have the option for up to four possible landfall locations so for example hurricane katrina actually made landfall fall in florida before it went to the new orleans area so that access to landfall similarly with hurricane irene attract up the east coast so it has multiple landfalls as well and we want it to be able to communicate that you know this might not be hitting just one location to hit this entire population density right so this is clearly a multi parameter multi factor skill that is all in top of thing in trying to capture the full suite of impact associated associated with hurricane now interestingly i mean i i there are some an we've talked about this on on on whether these podcasts in the past there are some that argue that these multi scale sort of multi numeric approaches will confuse the public even more water you're thoughts on the yeah i could definitely see that 'em at that's one of the reasons we try to make it the outcomes of it the impact level tried to mirror how this after simpson scale is done so by not adding in let's say eight ten ranked penn level system so if we went to something that had impact levels zero through ten type of idea or a different type of ranking we tried tried to mirror it so that it would be something that people are more used to write 'cause you can you can definitely thirteen introduced this level of confusion and we you know i'm guilty of this as well but we do do this and the scientific community city where you know we try to communicate technical content concepts that we kind of feel like communicating and accurately and it just adds confusion to the situation so we really tried to keep all the technical stuff more so on are end in kind of bottom line it in a way we thought people would be familiar with the weather channel is partnering with land in the give you a chance to win some amazing gear three lucky winners will receive the new ultimate rain jackets at the weather channel meteorologist will be wearing during the upcoming hurricane season so what are you waiting for enter for your chance to win at we love whether dot tv slash lands that we love whether dot tv slash land and we're back on whether geeks podcast i'm doctor marshall shepherd and university of georgia and i'm talking with phd candidate inist researcher steph stephanie pilkington and were talking about the feffer simpson scale of what the true measures of a hurricane and i think this this is a very important topic in came more into delight in twenty eighteen after hurricane florence now this is weather geeks so we could get a little bit geeky you're you're left the discussion was talking about the need to be very clear and accessible for the public but i wanna dive a little bit deeper into what neural networks in machine learning rx as you mentioned the bad is a part of your model what a neural networks in machine learning and why are you using them okay so yeah neural networks yeah 'cause now i'm gonna kick out a little bit of list geek out we love what we do so so neural networks are sensitive form of artificial intelligence and they're all network there are very much designed to perform one specific goal so in this case we designed it with a specific goal line of predicting impacts from hurricane in terms of economic damage there's intially modeled after is how the human brain learns so within her brain we have neurons in snaps his that fire between them now they're transferring data essentially you know if you're i always used this example because i don't know why it just pops into my mind but i had to testy idea that metal conducts heat when i was five years old you know you you touched hot metal hand it burns and you automatically create these pathways in your brain that says do not do that like it basically tells you what the outcome will be so that you know moving forward same kind of idea just on a different level so in an artificial neural network you have neurons in input layer which would be oldie inputs from the hurricane then you have hidden layers which you're hitting their own and then you have an output layer without put neurons which would be each impact levels now between these layers you have multi connections which you could think of as the senate apps this isn't a brain in these connections are how the data relates to each other a it's a very non linear approach it allows us to almost have them intertwining inner connect to reach and overall predictive outcome so this is really a sort of that sort of building on what we're seeing now in society where we're seeing more artificial intelligence a machine learning neural network that activity is being applied to many aspects of society you decided to apply sort of hurricane riskin assessment yes exactly yeah but actually kind of a funny story of the idea to use neural networks with my advisers idea a doctor mahmoud i told him i want to do this thing would communication in hazards and he's like oh would have done neural networks and we kind of ran with it because it has it's such a at applicability in this area because it's not linear nature hoosier visor again doctors we sam on the okay yeah no i knew it was all my mood is well so i wanna make sure it wasn't the same colleague yeah no no i want to kind of talk about the model a bit more have you actually tested the model and if so how how is it done so far yup we have tested we have been using real time for the past three hurricane seasons ironically clearly frustrated the first two because nothing's happening so this is kind of the dilemma we have a scientist because we know these are dangerous storms and we don't want any harm to the public but yet from a scientific standpoint we need some cases exactly i'm sitting there like you know you should be happy that there's no destruction at the same point i'm kind of wishing for it but i shouldn't wish for it the first two years we had a couple of weeks storms it made landfall and fall and then all of a sudden twenty sixteen came with matthew in twenty seventeen came so it really picked up from there and we have been tracking it real time and has proved fairly well we did find in one publications coming out soon will highlight this is that it's most accurate thirty hours from landfall 'em in it's more first hurricane of vince like harvey the decided to rapidly intensify it's that thirty hour mark becomes more critical however hurricanes like hurricane irma stayed pretty consistent in their forecast in forecasting impact level wasn't impactful for in it held at that entire forecast period in that's what it ended up being once they got the final tabulated results from irma so this is really interesting in i i hear what you're saying because one of the things i've noticed in recent years and i think the literature perhaps supports the is worth seeing a active what we call rapid intensification are are i events for those listening rapid intensification a we look at storms that drop a certain amount of pressure over giving amount of time we thought for example with hurricane michael a you mentioned hurricane harvey is well and so that thirty hour window or that thirty hour threshold you talked about a as a challenge because you might have a storm that is within that thirty are not in a boundary in rapidly intensify so how are you're trying to deal with that or they're gonna just a bottle or is it just something that's going to be a deficiency of the model going forward for now at least three now it's probably considered a deficiency of the model of one of the things is that the most heavily reliant on you know the forecast coming out of the national hurricane center so if that rapid intensification is in seeing priority and it doesn't come out need visory so i should say then the company advisories until twenty hours these outlets say then it won't be in the model until that point either in this is solely because i am not i don't have a degree in meteorology not a forecaster i'm an engineer so i'm trying to kind of leave that part's meteorologist 'cause they know better than i do and then bring it into the impact side which is worthy engineering part comes in what you do know though big challenges with with hurricane force gasping unfortunately leave the intensity for a you know the track forecast have gotten somewhat good over the last several decades there's been marketed improvement the challenges still that darn intensity forecast though and so yeah i mean it sounds like you're you're you're model really you're hangs on that some degree it does and this other the same publication we found that it's sensitivity at this thirty hour mark if we also look at a data trends the past five years on intensity and track forecast will be found and i believe it was around eighty not difference in win speed so intensity is equivalent to around the thirty hours threshold which to me tells me that okay were still in the same category he if you do a rapid intensification where you jumped the category now we've got a problem right in that creates problems across the board in general just from an emergency preparedness standpoint i'm you're a logical standpoint excetera i wanna i kind of circle around to the source so what factor here because that's for me in my own research in my own weather communication that's always the bottom line for me a what is your ultimate goal free remodel ultimate goal is i would liked to see it in use eventually a in you specifically what the saffir simpson scale in conjunction with this weather forecast so that maybe it provides a way for us to communicate risk that sink in easy to understand band but the public that see ultimate goal when we set out to create what what what does that look like the i mean in terms let's let's take a case like a hurricane florence harvey what does that look like who's issuing is is you're model year rating system coming from a hurricane center from local emergency managers the scenario ideally look like in your mind ideally a nationwide entity would be preferable so that would be like the national hurricane center something that is at that point it would be well established all the kinks worked out well accepted by the community if you need the national hurricane center behind something like that then you know it's pretty much well established as well so i would say more so on the national level like that that thinking communicate down can be brought down into be local level says well you know i talked to the doctor rick mab the former director of the national national hurricane center now a senior tropical specialist here at the weather channel and and we we had a little conversation on a previous podcast about this and you know i think he you know recognized in in mentioned this or challenges that the saffir simpson scale scale a cause' but i sense a little bit of hesitation in terms of sort of you know more multi variant are sort of throwing other things into the mix at the forecast with hurricane center have to deal with so if that were the case they're the hurricane center could you see a scenario where someone mica fema could could be a good home for for you're rating system oh yeah definitely a especially because once you start looking at these emergency management level you know that's where a lot of communication eucation risk in preparedness and evacuation orders come out of so that's also definitely another way forward but welcome back to the weather geeks podcast i'm doctor marshall shepherd from the university of georgia and i'm talking with phd canada and researcher stephanie pilkington she's working on her phd at colorado state university and she's also a researcher with the national institute of standards and technology center for risk based community resilient the planning and i wanna kind of pivot my discussion there now what is you're model say in general about the current state of resiliency in before you even answer that question defined for the listeners what at least you understand resiliency peter mean because it's one of those words but gets thrown around else kind of buzz worthy but someone listening to this casually makes it what hector they were talking about resiliency yeah resilience we typically look at as he ability of a community or an individual building let's say two absorbed in recover from an extreme stress her son extreme stressor in this case would be a hurricane so absorb would mean the damage you have from the hazards from hurricane so they impact of hurricane d a recovery portion is say how long does it take to get people back in their homes how long does it take to rebuild those homes how long into schools are fully populated again many many criteria with in the realm of what are we trying to recover back to and this model is more so focused on de impact side were looking at that ability to absorb it wasn't originally designed with the intent of modeling overall resilience since it was designed with the intent of communication but if i had to say it would be focused more so in that initial impact and ability to absorb door but hazard and so then sort of back to my original question now what what does it say about ever from your perspective about the current state of resiliency in some of these vulnerable geography okay so what if we look at the impact inside one of the city's we looked at is say if we move some historical events around along the usa coastline how does their impact change one of the things we found is that if we moved pretty weak tropical storm up to new york you're still looking at a significant impact level so when we're talking resilience you're looking at a sharp drop in that initial impact firmative at how well they're able to absorb and extreme stressor so they're vulnerable and not and to that extent because they're gonna end up with a large damage date or sorry larger impact level than say narian florida turns however these other concept is that like how do we move these things over in time so if we take some historical hurricanes in run 'em as if they were hit today of all these measures we put in place actually reduced de impact from these events when we found is that they didn't 'em so even things like the seawall in texas 'em are national flood insurance program that these things haven't done anything to really reduce that sort of initial impact from an event right have you been in a hurricane yourself or been been down essentially chasing hurricane so you storm chasers but more so tornadoes 'cause i know observe and the far right hurricane i've been in irene a as in the washington dc area when that hit yes yes i i believe i was actually there at the time as well speaking of hurricanes florida in taxes are two of the more vulnerable parts of the united states to hurricanes why are they so vulnerable other funny thing is they can't overlook the fact that you know their location plays a strong rolling that sure they're they're sort of sticking out in the tropics near the i mean you want warm water hurricanes and they're pretty much in it yes so that definitely plays a role when you start to look at both these states one of the other things they both have in common is they strong population increase trees 'em which actually played a large role in the overall impact from an event you increase of population you increase the infrastructure available to destroy in a lot of places as infrastructure grip as sorry as population grows you know were still still trying to keep up with our infrastructure quality and quantity me new demands the now you add an extreme stressor to that end that makes these areas even more vulnerable 'cause they're just struggling to keep up with base rate says it is that could add something to that i wanna get your thoughts on it you mentioned this increase in population so you're adding more condos there's more more stuff in the way these urging that's part of the increase in cost in addition to some other things perhaps it will talk throughout the moment but what you also add not only are you adding more people to these vulnerable communities you're adding more people that perhaps art experience with hurricanes talk to us about the impact there oh yes definitely suddenly i actually was having this conversation with someone recently where he said you know i wonder if there's a way we can look at resilience by people's experience with an event it's really funny when you moved to an area that either is you'll a lot of hurricanes or gets a lot of tornadoes if someone's leave their their whole life their perspective on it is a lot different than someone that just moved there an i almost wanna see their their emotional state is more resilient such events 'cause they're able to to observe the situation in you know prepare in kind of taken in better so a few more people moving to these areas that are used to it you almost had to panic that people who are used to it would not have because they've basically i hate to say it this way but built up a tolerance almost you know a good way to put it but even that tolerance build up ashley could be dangerous to you because you hear statements like oh outlive through category three ten category three all my life i'm not moving back to the category than than that's why said that because people sort of have that sort of anchoring inexperience i saw little that with harvey because people in houston they're used to getting floods all the time only allen's is people people haven't lives through and anomaly event until their experience with other events even though they may have lip through certain things art a they haven't experienced what we call an anomaly event for reason because it's an anomaly talking about the so that's that's also an interesting point there is this that would be called like a black swan event i don't know if you've read that sir but yeah that's really it's really fascinating he gives this example of a chicken on a farmer's something you know everyday the farmer feeds the chicken and and so the chicken becomes comfortable and thinks that that's gonna happen every day i up until the day the former decides that he wants chicken for dinner so you know there's this idea that these types of events are very hard to predict ander really hard for individuals to wrap their mind around it's just kind of one of the things in our brain is structured you know it's not necessarily true that what has happened in the past will hold true moving forward in the future yeah we we we talk about new normals all the time and you know one of the things that's looming in the discussion a is climate change and you know i i had a reporter actually called me the other day they wanna talk to me and they're like well climate change is become so politically i think no it has it's it's it's been politicized but the science is what it is and so the the period literature suggest that there's not as much clarity on the frequency of of hurricanes in a climate change world but they're a consensus a science and i'm seeing suggested when they do occur on average they they made me a bit more intense and we may see more rapid intensification as well so talk to us about one your thoughts on that and then to kenya model twitter account for the potential impacts of climate change so yeah that's definitely what i've seen is well is there is a consensus on when they do form they're gonna be more intense a most studies actually do show that we'll see increased win speeds increased precipitation and then of course he level rise just automatically you could say increased surge as it were rising sea level obviously storms they're just gonna rise as well yeah that's i think that's the case where when people sort of ask the question was climate change a pack of impacting this generation right now of hurricanes i think one of the easiest answer to is related the philo because there's more water coming in with the surge 'cause it's a higher level of of right rise and so there and we have storm surgery doing perhaps with more water than you whatever years ago perhaps yeah exactly and that's where you have you know the vulnerability of states like florida which have low elevations that's where it really starts to come in your view of sea level rise we just had sea level rise florida would still be in very vulnerable area because of that right but but then you throw in a you know every now and then this is a tough discussion to have with people because they want to sort of say oh you know that hurricane wasn't that strong what do you saying they were gonna have more intense hurricanes it's hard for people to sort of sort of not talk about things in sort of individual or sort of a you know one off terms because we say they're gonna be a generation of stronger hurricanes doesn't mean every hurricanes can be a cash offer hurricane i find that to me very challenging when i when i talked to the public perhaps particularly the you know maybe don't they don't understand the science is we do how do you make hard you so everybody can you pretend you're model incorporate are you thinking about such changes going forward or is that something that's to be determined so we have looked at using it for that purpose specifically this model was stilts based on current infrastructure quality so keeping this in mind it can change d'you hazards so if we know that we're gonna see an increase in the average win speed of however many not three miles per hour we can add that hypothetical situation into the model same thing with precipitation same thing with storm surge in terms of sea level rise the hazards himself comey added in the model and also population increase increase storm size because we're looking at the population affected and we did look at that so by doing all of those those four things we can kind of get a baseline of what we would expect to change you know what is it take to make the new norma billion dollar event not accounting for inflation and not accounting for changing infrastructure which would obviously make these numbers worse but what would it take to make the new norm a billion dollar event and we have started so look at that primarily right there man i i'm glad to hear that because you know one of the things i talk to congressman bob english who's a former congressman and he he talks about you know he doesn't understand this sort of skepticism that you seeing some camps concerning climate change said you know good good good conservative principle bob's a very principled conservative he's a good person conservative principle if the prepare for all of the risk so there's a possibility of it happening you need have a scenario area where you prepare for and so i i appreciate him saying that because i think that's something that we all can learn from a on these issues that no one in this last few minutes i wanna just get you're perspective because you've been doing research on this for a while he did you know there are a lot of people people jumping into this game so to speak after harvey in florence you've been at this for a while so i really trust your expertise on this just based on your experience how how do you see communities best getting prepared for hurricanes even either now or going forward just some things that you've picked up along the way from your own researcher observations that could work communities can just do a better job oh that is you're asking that almost like a year it's a it's kind of a complex wait a look at it and i say this because you know jokingly civil engineers often say to each other you know maybe we should just move new orleans 'em we know that's not gonna happen so when we talk about how the communities better prepare one of the things i've always i've kind of sorry how do i put this kind of started to observe observed when we do these studies after events is that a lot of the time when we talk about preparation shooting or infrastructure how we grow a community a lot of it seems like the those problems that come in that make it a disaster for natural hazard an ultimately window that says to me is that were trying to fight mother nature where where essentially putting up barriers in trying to better mother nature we picked a fight with someone we can't win in instead what we should be doing is looking at how we adapt how we absorb those impacts in how we can readjust after the fact so in other words instead of just forcefully trying to tame the mississippi maybe there's some way we can go about you know working in the bounds of the fact that that is a me injuring river stuff like this you know especially when we're building coastal communities in those areas are growing focusing on the fact that we're not gonna best mother nature she's gonna win end of story we just need to be able to work with in those balance you that's a really you know i you know i i have little things that i like they used when i'm communicating but boy i i really just learn something from you that with a really great way of framing were picking a fight with get win i think that's an excellent way to put this i mean i i i remember a comedian i remember who it was he was saying that there's not a single person they can stop water when it decides he wants to go over and go through some larry's i think he's referring to the hurricane katrina i mean you know the flow yeah that's another example i always give is that you know we all think water's not that big of a deal but if you think about it's a a school cubic foot of water so a cube that's a foot by foot by foot waves sixty two pounds absolutely yeah you know that's a force to be reckoned with that smaller than most of my carry on right end would not pass the inspection at the airport right right yeah no we we know the water is always the the the deadliest threaten a hurricane whether it be surgery later in freshwater flooding so it's ironic that we've been talking about the favour simpson scale which they windscale and yet the most deadly aspect of a storm it's not the most telegenic aspect often but it's off often the deadliest as water so my last question or maybe my by next to last question one more for you after that do we get people stop using the factory simpson scale or do we get them understand a better way to users would how would you answer that 'em afforest communicating risk if it's not great for that aspect but it wouldn't go ahead go so far as to say like let's just this season we're just gonna stop using the saffir simpson scale i don't think that would go over well at all i think it would throw more confusion into the mix if we want to eventually get away from the saffir simpson scale i think the ideal way to do it starting pair it with some other form of risk communication and then maybe you know start to weeded out but no way do i see it as a good idea to just all of a sudden stop using that scale altogether yeah i i thought you might say that i i agree with you as well i really do appreciate the fact that you have been i mean because this there's been something that people are jumping on a in recent months after early two thousand eighteen two thousand seventeen season but i i'm always very hesitant about knee jerk reaction rearm researcher knee jerk things that pop up a for for various reasons so i appreciate stephanie you you've been thoughtful and working on this for a while my last question is what what's next year after year after year phd is done at colorado state oh well i'm hoping to continue in academia in research as a professor i i'd like to continue on this line of work with community resilience whereas multi hazard modeling with technical communication to communities a and also in the realm of resilience smart cities starting to bring a little more hey i in the picture maybe so ultimately all published stay within research in this area yeah well i i will certainly be watching your career a closely i i'm very impressed with what you've
LCB Ep. 313 - Christmas Chronicles 2 Review, David Oyelowo (Mandalorian & Star Wars Rebels?) Interview, Best Gift Card Bracket, and McRib Is Back!
"I'm not. I'm not dumb. Net around fifty and beyond me. You can get me out of this massive. Finish off your sh might pay. You can't handle the truth. Maybe not maybe fuck yourself shoot your kid. One poll dot day of what we've got here is saying. Yes just well we're going. We don't need roads your heart. Welcome the lights camera. Barstool december first episode of december episode three thirteen jeff low conjectural bonds or view. A christmas movie review in christmas chronicles to on netflix. Your i think we we did the first one right. Oh i think. I remember doing a written review for it. I don't think we actually reviewed it but we have talked about it a lot. We we've definitely talked about it And we will do a very nice review on this bazaar movie. It's it's incredibly strange to me. The whole experience is from beginning to end when you think it's not going to be weird anymore. There's more weird shed. I'm not saying it's terrible. It's terrible but it is certainly odd the whole like one. Yeah yeah yeah. It's obviously very propped up by two people Fucking say that again. The movies just really like it's just it's the kurt. Russell goldie hawn experience. It's just very strange but we will talk about that. Also a bracket do you want talk about the bracket is don't tell us what's in the bracket when you tell us what bracket we'll be doing tonight. Yeah it's best gift card. Out of the choices i give you competition. It's a gift card tree. I like the style all right. That's pretty good. I don't want to think about it too much. But you're going to reveal them as as we go you're in reveal them as we get to the bracket we also interviewed. David a yellow. We interviewed him today. you probably recognize him from anything but selma from some years back. But he's in the midnight sky alongside george clooney cow chandler felicity jones very for an interview as the of agent callous star wars rebels. So we talking will star wars big big news coming at the end of that interview towards the end of it. We asked him a question. Then he gives us a little. We haven't gotten an answer yet. But i say just wait. Just yeah. We stay tuned. we'll have to hit up as an agent or something. You got to get that answer anyway before we get into Not a lot of news. There was actually a couple couple of news stories. I'm actually started talking about but not a ton what's going on the other than that. It's it's the detroit episode. Three one three callback. I three area codes. And that's that's one of the good call zip codes shit. Zip codes five. Excuse me area code. Whatever they are You know they was. Would you rather identify with a zip code or an area code area kids cooler. It's more It's you know it's it's three. Three numbers is cooler than five. Nobody really ever identifies by zip but cool zip code zip. Code should be the ruler of the to discuss. The name is cooler sucks though is extended zip codes with the dash where there's like five more numbers anymore zip codes. Could you possibly need five. Now i'd like that though. Because i feel like that enhances the precision of the package like. There's no way they're gonna fucking lose it now. 'cause it's four digits by zip code. What are the other big ones for area. Because i obviously three five miami i think. La's three ten. I new york's to wanted to. But i don't know. Is there any of the big famous ones. What's atlanta's atlanta's referenced. A lot. i know chicago. Chicago is three as well. I believe we want to. Yeah atlanta. i think I think it's five. Just read them off the ten most prestigious own area. And how you can get one here we go. You got six five o. Silicon valley to to dc three ten six to six or eight one eight. That's all day. La nine one seven seven eight new york city to onto the cooler of the new york number seven one eight. That's nassau county. Nine one seven is way more prestigious. Yeah five one. Two is austin. I don't know how famous that was. What i do recognize that one. That is my number who gave away three and my numbers the good luck s in the rest at this point i guess three one to chicago. Yeah four one five. San fran. Six seven boston three. I would argue three. Oh five should be higher than ten five should be number one. That whole songs from pitt. Bull based around mr three zero five. Yeah i would argue that that. That's and this. This article was definitely from not before two thousand. Just hold on. Let see which area codes in ludicrous area codes. Which which ones he. He listed is comprehensive There has got to be okay. Here's the here's the area. Codes mentioned in ludicrous area codes seven seven zero atlanta forty four atlanta seven. One eight some of the ones. You mentioned i'm going down. There's two one five philadelphia Oh three which is columbia south carolina. It's good one seven five seven. That's that's hampton roads. Virginia for four teno Five four new orleans ampules going it basically gets down to forty. Three one he mentioned is the five to charlotte to louisville kentucky. Now but in there he he does have three one seven. Which is my favorite indianapolis indiana. Also six one five six. One five nashville. I always thought that was good. Survey code fantasy sequence of numbers. I respect them. It's got a good cadence. Six one five. That's gotta be the top follow-through add real quick here. We've got a couple of today there's episode brought to you in part folks by probably got a bit. You're at home going there. But they're going to say three chievo. You're right three she.

Great time to be getting stuck at home during the holidays Murphy twenty one to purchase days d. a. z. E. walk in anything else where you're going to get into news. I don't really think i i did have a. I had a bite today. Because i'm still trying not to eat too much fast. Food at a bite of mcrib today had taste someone our office. It tasted exactly. Like i remember career jason consistency man. What sauce it just tastes like the sauce. It's arguably the saucy a sandwich in the world. It's always just because it's drenched as much as possible. So you don't see what it actually looks like not that it's gross but it's not like a naked naked and dry make rib is not. It's not a pleasing thing to look naked mic. Rip donald's kind of take your order. We have would like a naked mcrib please. Employees here are still. You're not gonna know but if you do you know who. I'm talking about frank. The tank he The kid who bought the mcdonald's was. I think they added pickles to these and i was like. I'm pretty sure they've always had pickles right trill like they've always had the pickles and the onions so i said i'm pretty sure pickles out of nowhere like a fucking cap. Like creeping up out of nowhere silent. Frank tangos always had pickles. And i was like i felt very justified. That the fast food expert. Frank think confirmed pickles but it was a good bite won't get it again. Dudas ears like a fruit bat. Here's from across the office. The second talked about yeah. He was ready to go. He was like nick rib time. Respect trump surprise. You haven't gotten one yet. I you're out of all the most mcdonalds need it yet. I just don't so. I accidentally hit some gluten the other day. And i've i've been i've been having some chronic bubble guts ever since some hot snakes sense but but now it's just like a little bit like say eating eating a bun from mcdonald's would just send me into overdrive. Couldn't imagine doing it now. What i could do i could. I could no no sandwich. Yeah i could order the mcrib naked. Take the Ud's gluten-free bread. I have and in the parking lot in light of the yellow cooking food in your car and parking lots. Please god the lantern outside of the mcdonalds at two. Am in the shade of darkness eye. Symbol may gluten. Free flickr sir. You can't operate a coleman grill inside your car. Sorry officer i just can't cut this the this home. Sorry adiba warrant no okay. I'm gonna keep cooking here and you come back. Come back when you call a judge fucking shit. that's me. He's cooking mic rib in george foreman grill. Mcdonald's imagine if you want your you've once the schedule and barbecue you're you're known for beer like haven't maker it. The only way to eat it is to go home and reheat on the forman you just gotta wipe off all the sauce. And get the grease off this sucker. Yes right. let's talk about other read. Why not get this bad boy out of the way. Do you know what i like to. I like to shuffle a deck of mc ribs. Fun be fun. Just had just lubricate all the mic ribs. What they saw poker player when they're at the table. They have a little stack of chips. That they're always fiddling with that's you you're fiddling with your stack of make rip. You're like the sheaf in casino royale flipping in between your fingers. Yeah you should do you. Should you should do like ribbons competition where you just take mcq ribs to someone's hands them. Yeah they just have to eat the mcrib drinking game. Edward forty inches ribs but then before they have to clap with the mic ribs. And make that like. Yeah you you you make ribs. Just don't even have to eat it. They just needed duct tape it to their palm in where it for like a day and take it off the next day and there's waterlogged with barbecue sauce like the survivors of the indianapolis or something they have to the hospital from poisoning. Serious skin in your your hands are permanently died red from this barbecue sauce. You're thinner. Blood has an unhealthy level of cumin steffi. Not even human just sludge made in a factory recruits overseeing it from hell. I can't think about tape groups your and now it's all i can think about this episode.

The oscars doing what the oscars does committing things that they probably shouldn't be committing to or doing things that i i don't understand the oscars they're committing plans of an in person. Two thousand twenty one oscar ceremony. Who is even asking who asking. That's why i think of the oscars are always. Getting answers are saying things that nobody needs to hear. Nobody was like fuck man december second. What are we. Oscar is going to do this year and sure enough. They come on out. They say there are still planning on this. Who who knows like nobody has any idea. We don't know we don't they may delay the oscars. There's barely enough movies to make a full best picture list. They need they need upon on it. That's what the mtv movie awards did this year. In the next year the kids will will the movie awards. They're just doing the greatest of all time awards which is honestly the podcasters go to like. That's how he no podcasting has seeped through the the the edges of society when you have an entire tv show that's like what's the greatest of all time things anyway. The answer should do that. They should just give oscars for best movie in the last fifty years at twenty lifetime achievement awards and it's weird because like nobody exit putting pressure on them right like no one has expectations for the oscars to be like as plan this year. Because of the fucking state the world is in right now. So why put pressure on yourself right. It's like a cell phone for them again because now they're going to have to backtrack this a few months and say oh well we know. We said we're going to do this but now we can't they just said nothing until the date. It would have been a totally different story but monday. Committing this early makes no sense. Part of it though. I think is just a human centipede' of expectations where yet. Cbs like shit. Like we need a big event to air post super bowl in the winter in deed something to watch the oscars are like We can still do it. We can still do it. And then it. Kinda just goes downstream but Yeah you're right like people don't care about the oscars right now. That's something you hear about your late. I would like almost bet that like a random person off. The street would not be able to name five movies that came out this year. It's it's just odd again. 'cause nobody was putting it demand on this specifically even to be put in like be done in person who told me that the oscars were completely canceled for this year. And they're pushing everything to next year. Okay yeah that's fine but like for them to come out and say this is absurd like nobody would've made a big deal. If it was remote. I i don't understand why they would put the pressure on themselves is the oscars to what they do. They do these. This is the least surprising oscars thing this is. Just what they do like anthony. Lynn game fourth quarter decision. Which you can really do what he what this. This is like this like throwing a hail. Mary up in the second quarter with a tie game. Five minute what are you who you don't need to do this right now. Why are you. That's like but then like a lot of movies are doing that too. We talked about like. What are you committing a month. Down the road for states delayed. Because this. we're not gonna talk about this. Because i unless it's crazy out of nowhere and i'm gonna talk about it but delays but like they are saying they might delay bond again to stop committing to dates is just say it's delayed. It's an easy thing that i hate like i know more than movie insiders. But there's a lot of. There's a lot of movies that are doing that. That are big budget movies. So obviously there's a. There's a reason that that works does do that. I think but i think part of it again is like that. The chain of expectations where like the oscars is almost would be like signifier that like twenty twenty one year. Thanks get back to normal will kick it off in february have the oscars guess what guys movies are going to be released this year. People are gonna watch be a good tie and advertise all the movies that we didn't get to see this year So like the the feels like what it is is just trying to like increase consumer confidence in july getting back into the movies or or getting interested in movies again after a just a lost year doesn't entirely lost year. Can you imagine if they fuck it up to and they actually make it into a superspreader event like they give tom hanks corona again. Because they didn't have enforced enough protocols because no one wanted to play call out any of the stars fucking like corona goes airborne. Win machine gun kelly performs alive and then just vomits all over the stage. They have triple h his signature move. He's spits rono. the oscars. sorry. I didn't i didn't mean to airborne deal just like a new way to spread it. I don't know what is moving on. Adam sandler says i swear they release these stories just for us. People have spent since the ridiculous six and twenty and fifteen watching over two billion hours of adam sandler movies on netflix. That's what netflix says. According to a report by variety. Now i don't believe that cinema but i don't believe that i don't believe i don't believe i don't know i don't wanna talk about it again. They did. I'm tired of their numbers of nobody. Holding them accountable. There needs to be a regulatory body for net flicks releasing watch numbers. I'm on two billion two billion hours two billion hours. Malcolm glad walsh right. Okay so i just crunch the numbers. They said they have one hundred. Sixty seven million subscribers as of the end of two thousand nineteen so that would mean each subscriber of netflix spent a bare minimum of eleven point nine hour streaming adam sandler movies. Every single subscriber of netflix every subscriber. That's the key every subscriber own every single one was worldwide to this isn't just. Us based worldwide netflix. Every subscriber has averaged to watch six adam sandler movies since two thousand fifteen that hard to believe more people doubling up. I'm sure the wrong missy. Eight times that's true. Maybe that may. Maybe it's maybe it's easy. Believe and we're being an. I'm being an ass this away even more staggering number. Think is if you if you really crunch the numbers. I think probably. Us users would make up. The bulk of adam sandler watcher watcher watchers. Jeez audience right if you did that. It's seventy eight million. Us subscribers as of as of two thousand twenty and each subscriber spent twenty five hours watching movies. The still sounds like bullshit but it at least like at least it doesn't sound as bullshit is when they say like one million people watch kevin hart zero fucks given in the first two hours. Don't shit like that. It's like obviously fake. This one at least you have to do the mental math. But like sometimes i'll throw a number out there be like six underground. Yeah tour fifty. Two million people watched that well. That's what they did with queen's gambit now right they say it's the most streamed show history yeah sixty five million people watched it the first day man. Leave anything they say. They have no goodwill with us. None none netflix exciting. You're the number one show on netflix. Right now is about is about a place that ken jag grew up in cold river. Virgin i didn't see that i thought of queens gamut now. It's virgin virgin river. Burgeon rivers got Alexan- alexandra breckenridge and not by in the alexander. Belt's nickel currently This this rivers just never clap cheeks. next next we'll do this then. We'll do another and talk. I'm excited for this. Because when you give my guy. Steve zahn work. I think we're happy exclusive. According to leak daily dot com. Actually this. this is the wrong news topic. This long article discussing news got it. I think discussing films. somebody got got the exclusive. I think tall girl to happening chavis or they're gonna do tall girl to same tall girl. I'm fires in taller girl. Somewhere in the steve. zahn scott. Such an underrated jal line. He does it. Sharp sharp long wide jolla very pronounced i. It's very handsome jal line. I'm looking at butch the subtitle of tall girl too well. It's either taller girls. Obviously that'd be the the give grows taller grow. I think maybe so. I said when. I originally tweeted about it. I said possibly tall tales. The tall tales. I think would be an awesome named for a franchise for tall girl. They didn't wouldn't everything fine at the end tall girl when that the point yeah dog in chicago hooked up happily ever after she got past like you had one of those votes over monologues. I don't really remember. But i just assumed it was in there about the importance of loving. You are being yourself. And all that stuff he care and that fucking milk carton and then the car and made out with her at the end of the movie saying she goes to college. What and she's not to tall girl anymore. Now need a girl. It's a college of freaks. They're all taller than her. I was gonna say see. She joined a joins like premier she goes yukon joins the basketball team. And she's no longer the tallest girl and she just like struggles to adapt like the high school star going in the nfl or whatever entire identities been taken away from her. Yeah i don't know. I still very young right like she wouldn't be college yet. You gotta you a milk more high school out of it day. The movie can be summed up by the party of freaks they had instead of tolfree tall loser society that this is berlin or hats or jackets and basically the simpsons episode where he got like all the smart people in the simpsons family together. Just show lisa that not. Everybody was dumb took. That took her in when the first simpsons did it for this episode. Though i believe we we have something for manscaping right.

And i think that julius avery same director overlord ease lucci said before he is so good i think and i thought overlord was an awesome movie that got overlooked a lot in whatever year that was that goes twenty seventeen and james one man james one. He's the aqua the guy that's the one movie everyone knows. James awan four right. Not saw an insidious so i think. There's good potential here for something to be good because again helsing cool dude just kinda got screwed over in the clock. Klaus bang thing. What was it trove vamp dracula untold or whatever. Oh no that was Wasn't drag and told dracula. Toll is like the monsters the series crappy new van helsing yeah and then New van helsing hadn't had a really good run at it because then there was the shitty hugh jackman movie. Yeah and then. I think the most famous portrayal before that was the black and white one and anthony hopkins right in Found he played dracula in. Bram stoker's dracula. No gary oldman played dracula in that one. Oh okay okay. I'm picking it up but yet dude. He's cool. It's a fucking monster. Hunter obviously make good dracula content and good vampire content. If you have the right crew behind you. And i think that maybe james one is the little league little over fond of cgi and and and the impractical facts is impractical jokers. Big fan of cgi. Just hope that in this movie they stick a little more practical just because it that worked well in overlord allow those physical fa- physical practical did not zombie. Shit i think that looks really cool and if they implies that stuff to this would be if i was making this movie i say like copy stuff but i would definitely pay a lot of attention. What warren ellis did with the castle. Vania animated series on netflix. For sure if. I know. I don't don't think van helsing was in. That was but i mean you. Have you have trevor belmont. Who's you know family of hunters which is pretty much a standard for it right. And i thought that one i mean. Obviously they had to be a lot different but i thought that one do like a really good job of the mythology in making dracula into more of a sympathetic figure rather than just a full out monster which was a monster but like us. You kind of felt that he was a little sad boy. You felt bad for him and like that. I think that made that made for compelling movie now. I don't know if that's what they're going to do in this thought time that's going to be the style movie it is but i would at least try to take a few cues from the animated castleblaney because they the some worked for that one in terms of hunting dracula. If i remember right. I think that peter dinka doing a van helsing thing as well except he plays like a lesser known van. Helsing that is like has like a con scheme with his monster. We enter basically introduces the monster to the wild and then when it causes problems he comes in and like does a k. Fob thing and they can take their money at. I don't know if that's still in production or even coming out at all period but there's a lot of in content coming out soon happy about that. Who can forget the Forgetting sarah marshall yes me arguably the best onscreen van helsing also. I do want to know got a lot of dmz about this and this is a good dm. so i'll say the guy from heath ledger party scene was vermont. Senator patrick layhee the old guy. The vermont senator and this guy at blue machine on twitter gave me the best the amount of all of them he said to loud eater moments. I've been in was endgame in that scene being in a vermont theater. We don't listen to thugs. Whatever and start cheery. Two hundred people in unison. Doing the leo. Meam my god. How did you get that gig. I just good friends with chris. Nolan against stand for criminal gear. Chris have all your movies. I watched in order and miami and part of vermont standard education. chris. It'd be funny if i played man in party scene. Apparently he apparently he's had a run in some of these as he made a credited cameo batman forever. He voiced a governor batman. Eight minutes series. I use embattled robin so it was. It's a legacy thing. Do those batman comic book fan. I'm pretty confident. There's a there's another politician in one of the dark knight trilogy movies. I think you're right. man her definitely right. It's still healthy someone from philadelphia's in it faulk that's going to piss me off i don't think it was. Mayor nutter. bet went into the water. Whatever you gave up on that one road. I love philadelphia. Look last thing call pork. Roll super nintendo world first images from universal studios japan. Sort of the. It looks very cool. It looks fucking awesome. Actually you can wear wrist bands. And they're going to have they're going to have like the the blocks around around universal that you can actually punch like mario. You collect coins in your wristband. That is pretty cool however we didn't really see the mario kart ride but it is of all like the lands and shit. This one i think is maybe the coolest that is. I think it's the best idea to because it's something about the colorful -ness of mario that's right it just like it lends so well the theme park. It's gonna be so. I would love to go to that whenever the world isn't in inflames. It looks it looks really cool. I the i mean. Obviously the mario kart thing is a dream of every child to grow up in the united states since one thousand nine hundred four. Yeah so it would be. It would be a pilgrimage of sorts to go and do some sort of mario kart. Because i've seen the videos of it's going to be in orlando and hollywood. I believe at some point to it's syndrome and incredible too late ten years too late or in our case i guess like twenty years too late. I'm just. I'm just chugging goose island. Ipa's before going driving. The mario appears arrested for dui be changed to a blue shelby behind. You showed me big jim. Burial car is our fish for beer. Before you cross who you you murray you do the maury me anyway. I think data. I'm look if i ever go back to the theme park which like going to a theme park has never seen more attractive than my life than right now. It is empty. Well no just. Because it's it's like something that like before the pandemic i was like oh so many people and then that never had enough of a break from being in crowds or being around people to be like god. That sounds so different than everything we've been doing over the last year. If it was safe to go. I definitely would go so i don't know but also like i'm definitely probably gonna go because my daughter she's going to be like five in two years or whatever and they'll be prime age for this thing gets there and so. I'm hoping i'll just sit on the bench. While the mario kart stay there. Don't a lot of it is about timing. a lot of it is about timing Because if you think about it like how many people like our big star wars fans who are going to go to the disney one. Because they don't have the kid it lines up like your situation like you're not like someone who's gonna go to disney just by yourself alive is kind of about mike. You said time girls technology. Now like the mario kart existed ten years ago it just it just couldn't it can barely exists now. They've been working on for six years. So i just look guy still got the star. Wars landed my backlog and hopefully hopefully by the time i go to that they've made it seem a little more impressive. I don't know what they're gonna do. They're the only thing i want to go there for. I wanna make fun of the other lightsabres. The kids are building. And you call that a lightsaber. Where's the khyber crystal. You'll bitch door. You're in that little shop. You're watching them. Put it the. You're your work. Double-sided judy china. You try to get your arm. Cut off by darth maul. You'll you'll bitch you get arrested for universal and disney. The next day interesting credible busch gardens next. Yeah it looks. It looks pretty. It looks awesome. But i i really do want to see what the ride is like because if if the ride sucks who gives a shit but it's apparently incredible anyway. Yes david yellow interview with him. He's done many many things he's played. of course. martin. Luther king junior. Dr martin luther king junior in selma six years ago. Now it's crazy. It was just yesterday song. Glory john legend commenting the oscars voiced agent calloused and star wars rebels. We talked about that. And he's in the midnight sky with george clooney which drops on netflix. In december december twenty third. We talked to him all right. We are joined today by david. Yellow how are you doing today sir. You're wearing a great shirt. We talk your facial hair before he started this interview. Everything's good everything's good. Yeah i see that Facial hair is a is a common theme for us here. which so. i'm glad i'm feeling at home But yeah i'm i'm happily home in la and glad to be talking to your work. Do we wanna talk off the top about a movie coming out on that flex art of this whole pandemic movie theaters changing all of that. But this one is. No joke is a big time movie. You george clooney kyle chandler felicity jones. It is the mid night sky. We talked about this trailer. On our on our podcast. A couple of weeks ago post apocalyptic tale follows augustine. I believe how you say. A well scientist in the arctic sullied. Felicity jones and her fellow astronauts returning home to a mysterious global catastrophe. Big time look and movie. Dropping on net. Flicks december twenty third. What can you tell people about this because again we talk about this. We mentioned we are very. We're dying for some really big time. New movies seems like it's right up that alley. Yeah i i'm dying for that as well and it's so funny i saw the film the other day and it really reminded me of the fact that we've we've been really starved of films of the scope and scale because so many of them have had to Postponed being released because of the pandemic But thankfully this one was always net flicks movie even though we were going to be doing a lot of screenings always going to be dropping at this time of year and it's so surreal to watch the film because we shot it before the pandemic We actually finished beginning of february. And then of course the will change worldwide in march and to watch a film that is basically about the world ending because of a catastrophe that has meant that myself and this group of astronauts have had to go and find another planets to colonize. We're on our way back. And things are worse than we even thought they were. And george clooney's basically telling us come here and go back and you know is crazy because there are so many things that i think. We all never vote. We have to consider in our lifetimes bats similarly are characters in that film are having to take a long hard look at this obviously looks like a very very unique movie but if you had to compare it to another movie what would you pick because we think that there's sort of like a limit to how many space movies there are and this movie looks like it has beautiful space landscape and obviously the very barren landscape down into the hundred all that so if you had to compare it to another movie what would you pick. Well you know what i'm gonna have to steal from. George clooney here in terms of his The film feels like a mash up of gravity and the revenue Gravity because it is very much in space with that voss notice and yet you are focused on these astronauts in a way. that's very personal very human very. It's not just a bunch of technical jargon myself. Felicity jones who have a baby together that we're having to got heads around being parents. You have Be sharing tiffany boone. Will all missing their families back on earth. It's not one of those films whereas all this sort of I'm speak you know it's it's very relatable and then what's going on with george on uhf all that stuff they show in iceland. Is you know. I remember watching the revenue and just thinking my goodness leonardo dicaprio and that cost is of every award every bit of money that was thrown their way. It just looked so talk to be in that environment. And that's how. I felt watching. George doing his stuff With with his oath bound character. So you know. It shouldn't work but it does you know A mashup the revenue and gravity is not an immediate place. You'd go but that that's a good way to some about film. You know you mentioned the trail. You mentioned kind of birmingham and all that something. I noticed in the trailer is that you play an astronaut in this movie. How do you film this astronaut. Scenes in this movie feel like we've talked to people for interstellar we've talked to people that did ad astra everyone kind of has their own little different experience and how they shoot spacey's your character. At least i saw on the trailers did like an va where you're out in space. So those scenes shot. Well we had on the midnight sky. Is you have one of the. Oh jeez of space movies. In the form of george clooney. He's done gravity don salaries. He played an astronaut in both. And so you have someone who was able to give us tips as to what we wouldn't need to do in order to really be to sell it so months before we started shooting. We had a very intense training regime to really build our coast strength. Because one of the things you have to do is put a lot of effort into making. It seem effortless. The fact that you are sort of floating in zero g but of course we are hanging off wires. You have these harnesses that are pulling parts of your body. That really should not be pulled that but you have to make it look like you're not in the amount of pain that you actually are that you're not straining in the way that you'll buddy actually is And he was able to give such great tips. You know the way. I'm speaking to you now is the way. I'm speaking fellow astronauts but my body is moving at a completely different pace and that's actually a lot harder do than you may imagine But it was great to have jobs there at every step of the way reminding us of that fact because he had had to do it himself. But i will say. It was a lot tougher than i anticipated But that's the job. You're supposed to do the woods so that it looks easy on screen. You mentioned clooney. What's he like as an actor. Maybe versus as a director because ed imagining. He's a delight to work with as an actor but as director. Who knows is he. Give the cast and crew freeness breslow machines. Free migos or anything. I'm so glad that. I'm not a coffee drinker because literally i wouldn't be able to move in my house for for an espresso goodies yet. He he was very keen to give those away. I think he just has a huge stash in his house. Like it's trying to get rid of but no he is a truly great person to be around. I know that seems obvious because you get that vibe. Watching him in seeing him interviewed. But you know. I've got to say i have never met anyone who is as good as telling a funny story as george honestly the film and the filming was basically what we were doing between being told great stories You know to the point where sometimes like jimmy be shooting now george because he really loves a good anecdote but he i think it's by design because he what what i also love about him. He doesn't take himself seriously. He knows that movie making is a privilege Not something that you you. Odor should take for granted and he keeps it light. He keeps it moving and Because he's an actor he. I think directs the way he likes to be directed. And so that makes it Just he's a very very active friendly director jumping off that my favorite movie of all time as ocean's eleven lotions eleven. I don't know how much more press you have. If you're going to see georgia and talk to him. But i i think you very well could play a great role in an ocean's fourteen so i i. This is not even a question. I'm just saying you aren't a heist movie. I i have no problem saying jeff said that you can put me in the next version movie back. It's not gonna be a hard conversation. Meet the habit jones clooney. I love those films too. They look like so much fun. Those guys just look like they're having so much fun boy. Would i love to be in that company or related to that one of the characters in that movie and turin. Urine and we space movies interstellar. This'll be a spoiler. But any surprise matt damon cameo in midnight sky. There were expect out of nowhere. If you're gonna come out of the arctic or something you never know you got to watch and see. But i will say it was so win doing interstellar compatible doing the midnight. Scott chris on doesn't let anyone see script so there were only like buying people you know the entire possengers who had the entire stripped. So i for anyone who's seen interstellar they'll get this. I arrived on set to do my relatively small row. In 'em there was dust all over the set. And i remember thinking wow. This is a bit janke. chris nolan session. Someone of dusted this place. And i literally. I added desk desktop. I stopped cleaning the death as like. Oh sorry but they weren't gonna tell me why everything is dusty. So it wasn't that. I watched the movie out like right thing going so anyway. That was what they don't even tell you what the movies of what's happening in the movie. But then you're also expected to not try and tidy you just you gotta stand there. Yeah everything everything you see is as it should be and i say oh lines and save him. Well see me. Oh my goodness. We interviewed Joseph gordon levitt two story about how christopher no one actually carries around examples of. I'm max film in his pocket to show off the people where we which we asked. We asked as a joke if he did that. And he's like actually does he hasn't his wallet. Wow laughed being. it's clear i admire. You know what was so amazing about being on chris. Known and sat is attention to detail. I remember we were about to go take. Everyone was ready. You know him to say action and he had oh hold on and then he goes up to these blinds and then these are blinds in the back of the shops at any cost. He doesn't even ask just puts his hand out. Someone gives him this sort of contrast that blows dust and he literally goes blind. Goes okay okay. We're ready okay. I guess that doesn't powder yeah so like you said this wrapped up right before the pandemic Heavy shot anything since because we talked to some actors who right now are going through different bubble experiences trying to film stuff. So just curious about that yeah. We managed issue of coal solitary which we did in british columbia. That's a film. That nate parker has written in his directing. And i play a guy who's been in solitary confinement for seven years and it's really altered his mental state and he comes out into a world where he cannot quite decipher. What is real. And what is imagined. And he's also coming out into a world where people are isolating from the virus. So it's it's a very heavy kind of psychological thriller And we specifically set new york. We should in in In british columbia because they they've been handling the pandemic better at perfectly franken so we were able to squeeze that one. No one go cove aids. So we're we're we're very proud of that such a fascinating process. I do want to dip back a little farther though. I wanna talk a little bit about selma i. We asked us to almost everyone who plays a famous person. Somebody historical and important figure in the world. We always ask about nerves. However i will say this and you can tell me if i'm wrong. I don't think anyone had has a bigger role to play. Then you have to betray. Martin luther king for oprah. I feel like that has to be the most daunting like bio pic role of all time. You have to nail that role which you did. It's a fantastic movie. And i still. I imagine it's it means a lot to you still to this day. Thank you thank you very much yet. You know what who was more nerve wracking to play. Martin luther king in front of it was people on the edmund pettus bridge alma. Who had been on march there were people who were now in that sixties and seventies they had been teenagers or mid twenties in nine hundred sixty five when that is happening and they went actually people who normally extras or supporting autism films. But they saw a advertisement saying you know if you wanna be in these much because we had to have huge amounts of people from arches and there were people who wanted to be in those much to commemorate the first time they had been in the actual marches and so to do speeches in front of those people who were there when dr king was alive and had given speeches. That would remember having a guy i had to do. A speech in a church it was wheat street baptist church in atlanta where the king was from so yet again people who knew who had been under the sound of his voice with bad and remember a guy coming up to me and saying you did a good job i was there for dr king and yeah yes you and i remember thinking. I'm so glad he didn't say that to me just before i was about to do it. So yeah that was. That was pretty never. We also talked a lot of people about the oscars. And you know the very very interesting in different answer than you oskar because it's such a complicated absurd process but you were part of all the entire selma cat. You had some very emotional screen. Time after john legend and common performed gore which is for me. Probably my favorite moment at the oscars it was just such a insane performance and impactful moment at the oscars for for you to have that kind of wrap up that cross sell releasing and then people talking about it award season then they have that like big emotional and you saw it on your face like that must have been that must have like kind of like the bowl on top of it all again. Like i said. I'm imagining describing an incredibly emotional moviemaking process. Yeah you know. There's so much about the process of making that film. that was once in a lifetime. Stop you know. It took seven years from the first time. I read the script but the things actually comes at Five directions common go. I was rejected by the director at nine in picking a rejuvenates you to direct and let alone actually doing the film and netted a film started this thing that we couldn't have expected called oscarssowhite. And then you know to get to that moment combination in that performance. I think it was just the release of to be perfectly honest. Seven years of anticipation all gonna received. Who the heck amodu thing. I'm gonna play king own. My goodness i used to watch the academy riots. You know so it was them. It was this so much going on even surreal to think about it. Now i'm he's with the with the recent murder of job george floyd in the summer we just had black lives matter and all of that you know sama was released and suddenly it was a film that came back into the conversation that i remember just flicking on the tv. And i hadn't seen the for years and it was on. And and i couldn't actually associate myself with it anymore. I was sort of watching a guy woke this is. That's me and i absolutely no residue of the experts left in me. So so much about that experience but life-changing amazing and surreal. We love a lot. We want to talk about something. Maybe only slightly less heavy end star wars rebels because we are massive only slightly less heavy. We're massive star wars fans. We love kids. I'm big fan of star. Wars rebels themselves so they trust me that i get far most read from them for that. So you know it's a good segue. What was your experience like working with dave baloney because day felonious guy that right now star wars fandom obviously loves because he's super super passionate about stores and he kind of brought with enron rebels and now with mandalorian a lot of like that passion back to star wars and people who really feel that onscreen. Dave is a is a great great guy to be around because he's enthusiasm and passion for star was is infectious. I'll be totally honest with you. I'm not that guy you know. I didn't grow up with like star wars being the thankfully in fact our activity. The silliest story i did this phone code red tails which george lucas was one of the and We were doing a sane in both the It was all these at plane. Stop and we had to do a lot of green screen for and i remember once georgia was on set and we were doing the scene. That was really clever. The way that they were they were making. It seem like plane was coming in. I was stood in the shop but it was also the smoke and mirrors and green screen. And i said to him. Wow this is so amazing. And he said to me. Yeah we had to invent this restores. You know i we. There was no green screen before ending. We have to like hold on you. Just throw into the conversation that you invented like that anyway. Yeah haven't you seen star wars. And i had to admit to george lucas. No man. it was awful but you know what happened. I got boxes of dvd's of star wars and light sabers and toys delivered to my house. I you know but coolest ever for my kids. But that's how. I actually got to into star wars george lucas. Literally sending me which is not bad. It's like the best a one source to get into a thing. It's the guy who made it. Yeah who advertising and then told you about how he meant to but dave. When because similar to chris nolan you get the spirit beforehand. Because they're so scared that it's going to leak tool the final. So dave is the one who sort of talks you through you. i play agent counts in it. And he's there in a cowboy hats with all of that sort of behind the screen duck. So what we're gonna do is. This is the greatest thing in the world. And i always leave the recording. What i did. But dave liked zone an interview. You did talking about hot callous because cows obviously takes a turn. Just become smoking hot. And how fans sometimes get disappointed when you play hot cows and i have a name for this effect. I'm calling it. The h jon benjamin effect because of the show archer because the character. He plays the arteries smoking hot when they see. H benjamin good looking dude. Tremendous voice actor doesn't match up then. I think that there should be a society of voice actors. Where secure good looking dude. But maybe just don't match up with your animated counterpart and you know you gotta bring awareness to that right. Is people get disappointed. I'll happily joy that crew. But you know i think the disappointment with me when people see me. They want those ginger chops they want. They want they what they want the quad. And i'm like sorry it'll part. My head just doesn't do that and thankful you do not want a ginger fro so you know. Let's all be thankful for the fact that i actually look agent callous but it was the weirdest thing because it happened overnight. I was just sort of doing. And i didn't even know they didn't even tell me that callous was gonna go through this transformation. I mean i could tell things. Were sort of migrating in that direction. But i'm not there for him. Having this like slowing hair remember you know the the the side buns getting and all this kind of stuff and i was like people hitting me up on social media on this. I'm sorry guys. Khanna help you can give you say i was at star wars celebration when they debuted the trailer for that and we've known that callous was kind of like an inside agent but they hadn't seen the hair yet and when he walked out from like the shadow i believe and his hair is people. Were like whoa. What is this guys like a playboy. This is insane moment. But now with i actually. I just walked rebels the last season the other day because with the lead up with mandalorian now they included a soak tunnel more and more characters from rebels. It's incredible to watch these wild for us. And i'm sure even for you if you've seen pictures or for you watched daddy's animated characters come to life now and maybe also at some point. It's it's quite insane to c- yeah. I'm sort of making my. I think i should be calibrated completely changed. I'm going to fully embrace. The that me as callous is going to like shaft rather hot callous where the hake trench coat and everything may transfer. I'm going to keep the side buds. it's gonna be a big fro. I may just ginger up the tips to kind of i've a little nod to the fans and just be like guys would going into another direction. We have one more thing we have to have best. This is important because we have to ask any single actors ever worked with tom. Cruise this question and you worked with him on jack reacher we asked us to weave asked us to millions of other people but all this did jack reacher two so jeff. Going gonna pull a picture right. You're getting pulled up on the big screen report on the big screen. A picture of tom cruise from the movie. The two hundred eight movie valkyrie. Where you see his his bottom. And i need you to tell me if it is real enough real or not. Basically i i. One hundred percent real. This is still from the movie. Bats is not. Tom cruise's rarin. Oh that's big. That's a big development. That is absolutely not. he's end in fact. I'm not should. Is that issue not kim kardashian. It's making these. We don't know what it is so plump. I mean it's it's a. It's a big topic still on the internet. We're not kidding. Every person that we know who is crossed path. We have to ask. It's just it's it's the number one question will always. Have you know what. I'm literally gonna take a picture i'm going to skin. I'm i'm gonna. I'm gonna be the one to confirm this. I'm literally going to ask him. What the heck he's doing mission impossible. I think venice right now. I will have an answer by about four o'clock. Okay we wanna be the mail you want. The exclusive scoop on this. We've been digging. We've been digging the answer on this. I'm gonna send it if he if he tells me you know he. It may be him and he's like look. It was a bad angle and didn't want in the film studio wanted. Who knows demanded last thing. We love asking this personal question. Actually we want six movies off the top of your head. It can be holiday. Themed can be your favorite movies just any six movies that you can name that you like for good reasons. Maybe like key reasons. Six movies okay. There will be but my favorite song raging bull sound of metal amazing film. I just saw the club. I love that film times of care.

Thank you so. We are very excited for the midnight. Sky december twenty third on net flicks. Absolutely i mean that's perfect. It's going to be half. The country is going to be under snow. Sure you're going to be inside what what better way than to open up this big movie. You george clooney. Felicity jones cow chandler and more that. This was a blast. Thank you so much. This is so much fun thanks guys. Please relay the tom cruise. Mosquito find out. And i'll let you know. Thank you so much fun stuff. I had an absolute blast with him. He was he was a good time. Indiana anyone who appreciates tom cruise asked picture is okay in my book and he he he might be the first to. He's the first to actually question tom. Cruise ass he kind of kind of call out a stun s he. He didn't he didn't believe for a fucking he didn't even go. Let me think about. He was not a chance. He said it's so funny to the accent because he's has no his bum damn right. It's not as bum damn right daily waiting so long for someone to say this. I know that that hasn't when i'm tired of pretending. It's i'm tired of being gas led by tom. Cruise on this s. I'm crews propaganda campaign which is definitely real. I've seen almost died on anyway. No no go ahead go ahead. You're going to say. Couldn't i've been doing fallen. These like nostalgia. Nineties accounts on instagram. And so i'll get these recommended ones that are like tom. Cruise nicole kidman and ninety nineties. And they'll say like goals is far. No i'm like no a little education session about this relationship. Folks definitely not a goal the opposite some might say that i also watched. The undoing started watching that. And i i started. I love that show. Because they're like grant you can do your accent nicole kidman. Don't even think about it. You're doing you're doing the american thing that you break least eight times for episode. Exactly dude man. That was a disappointing. Finale have fun well. I haven't seen her so yeah. I'll probably watch over holidays or something a moving on a christmas chronicles to the christmas. Chronicles to just dropped on netflix. Right around thanksgiving sequel to the christmas. Chronicles starring kurt russell. At the end of that movie. It was revealed that goldie hawn two married are in the movie together. I guess what now. They're both on the entire way. It is a wild movie. It is so many strange netflix's decisions down. To the language the elves speak so noxious thing of the entire movie. What a fucking choice. Anyway before we get into this actually movie rankings dot net big update at the holiday movie generator. We've the random ubi generator. This one's the holiday movie generator and that way. If you know holiday you can. We want to watch Click click banks. Come home alone to just now. Randomized get holiday calendar on netflix movie. Holy shit oh yeah shit was a wacky movie by that. I mean not good. Christmas chronicles too. I like the first one. I didn't love the first one but i but i enjoyed it. This one got a little too weird for me like it just again. Some of the decisions here too much and the leafs had to make. I don't know just just just again. I know it's a movie and it's got fucking elves like i shouldn't. I shouldn't have to take many leaps but it just it just got a little too much in some places for me didn't despise it just didn't like it all that much Fifty six out of one hundred for me. We'll get into the the long laundry list of bizarre things in this movie. And i understand this. I can see the charm and people liking. Do want to note that. It's easy to do that with bad holiday movies. And i think this falls under that ever watched this again like christmas. Chronicles throw on again. This is what. I'm not sure it ever watch again trails. Not gonna make your way to your rotation absolutely not. Give it about a fifty. I could go low. Or but then i had to talk myself back into the fact that this is a kids movie. It's what it is it's a. It's a stupid kids movie. it's weird. Which is actually makes it a lot more interesting than the fact that. If it wasn't weird. I think if it wasn't weird i would rate it a lot lower but i won't talk much about right now because i i want to go through your list of all the weird shit in it okay. Fifty ken jack so i just want to start by saying that. There's one glaring positive thing about both this movie and the last one. And i think that it it kind of serves as a distraction to the actual quality of both movies in that is that kurt russell is an outstanding santa claus like maybe my favourite onscreen santa claus ever period like super charming is like a sweet spot where he's very likable. Nice but also like energetic. Same time and goldie hawn like the same thing having a full movie her awesome because they obviously have very good chemistry. And i think that that affect kind of brings us away from the the idea that this movie is very very bad and not good much like the original and for me. It's a forty. We'll talk a little bit more about it. The weird stuff but I think that the pretty much everything other than goldie hawn and kurt. Russell is terrible. I think neither of the main children are particularly likable. I think julian denison who's normally great hunt for the wilder paper. People one of my favorite recent movies not movies awesome. I think he felt super fucking flat. I think the most glaring egregious miscast in history of cinema. Maybe ever happened with tyrese gibson being cast as the well-meaning stepdad roman pearce. I think they kind of try to fix that. Right by sort of cutting out of every single part of the movie except bookends. He was doing roman pearce. A little bitter was happy retirees and we talked a lot about getting work and stuff. And i always feud with the rocks over but it was. That was when i talk about last. We talk about the other day when when he's he does he like a bowl of fucking china shop enters that movie too and just the the tone was just. It was weird. But but then you have you have the brother who is like. Oh my god like like like fucking ruined temperature rice. What will be cut. They book ended him to they. Did the smart thing both tirees and the older brother. they're like. Yeah you're going to be in the first ten in the last ten. I'm sorry buddy. But that's it got. What a board. And that guy was so glaringly stands out against the rest of the cast. It's it's absurd. And i think almost more weird and knowing this time around was at the effects were atrocious the cgi and one was especially compared with i one much better but at least a little bit better was really bad. Isn't the set pieces terrible and it kinda surrounds. This overcomplicated plot that requires so heavily. That you've paid attention to the lord. The one that comes to a point. Where like i you say kids understand that. And that's why. I don't wanna be overly harsh on it but it is a christmas for kids. Why does so much of it required retaining so much of that first movie little through. That's why i don't feel bad shredding. It more like an adult compared to a kit. That was my weird. That was my weird thing. Is that i. I felt as though for what this movie is was supposed to be is supposed to be what the intentions likely were just needed to remember too much from the first movie. I don't remember anything really. I learned his sister. That was it for me. Besides santa any sang in a bar at one point which i only really remembered when the airport seen happen talk oriented. I remember that because the airport scene happened. Maybe saying like a danny's or something. The airport scene was that that was the piece. There is of the movie really say. Yeah i did. The best part about the airport scene was when they cut to the police department office and on the door it said airport office unaccompanied minors division like the unaccompanied minors. Division would have their own separate office in the airport for their less union strike. That's what i was about like that. I okay where where to begin where to begin with this movie. The most obvious twist of all time. One of most obvious twists in the history of moves by the way when she sees her dad as a young kid Airport just guy. We've injured that guy having sold or whatever yeah he's was in mid-nineties any voices a trace in god of war. I for you guys. What were some of the things that stuck out as being a bit a bit strain this the harshest thing is that in the first one. I kind of like the chemistry between the son and the daughter because the sun's obviously the bad boy and the girls the uplifting or still in santa all that stuff but like in this movie. I didn't think either the step brother or sister were likeable and like they're not likeable. You're putting so much more pressure on kurt russell then carry this movie. Which admittedly he does to an extent like thirty nine. Forty points go to kurt. Russell and goldie hawn one point goes to the fact that it is it is published movie again it just neither of them. Neither of them have had offered anything to it and again it's kids so gets to you. Don't want to shred on him too much like that. That's more directing anything else. And that's chris columbus by the way remember this is the same guy who fucking shadow over the idea of a sequel for another beautiful malone. I just. I don't like this version this version of the north pole. It's it's very weird by the weird vibes here. I don't like the rabbit. Elves the dominion rabbit hybrid elves. I just don't it. It creeps me out. What those yeah like the need for them to speak in that. Elvis languid just elvis. I guess why. I don't know it just doesn't have like i watch elf a few weeks ago and i mean that's a seventeen seventeen year old magnetism will movie now but has more traditional version of like what the north pole feels like. I just what the elves and i don't know it didn't they didn't feel like a visor off. Man felt like like a christmas bazaar in like a big city or something. You know what. I mean like christmas market in like a city centre. Didn't feel like a christmas village like going to a mall. Yeah someone noted too by the way. Let me tell me adds to it. The the tiny elle's a lot of them live in bigger building. Some of them lived in like the shire like little hillside things but some lived in bigger buildings. I mean even like the fucking the like the northstar. Whatever whatever the the star of bethlehem and like the the older elves that helped start the culture and they speak english right might going crazy day. Spoke english right. I think so. It's too much lower too much for us to understand people who are usually pretty good at picking this stuff up and these are kids movies which is again. I think it's okay to of shred these because they're based for kids in like we can barely comprehend them. It's not because we're just because bone stupid like it's because there's just too fucking much there flooding are receptors. But this did they go against. They go against thirty years for each of us of like established visions in our head of like what christmas movies have told us. The north pole would be like so. I'm i'm stupid for thinking. This isn't like the north pole 'cause then or polls not real just me watching elephant what it is but i can maybe see like kudos for doing something new with like a younger generation. What you're presenting here but for me is just too much dissonance between the vision i have my head of santa's workshop man can't do it too hard for my brain. It's also worth noting to that. For some reason whenever movies. I feel like go to the north pole and the sequel for the majority of the movie. The movie stinks like santa claus. Two i believe is the majority of its in the north pole. He gets married. I think and that wasn't good. The first one i like i kind of enjoyed because it was more grounded. More grounded relatable christophe. I feel like when it becomes to like mythical like this it. Just it's it's weird of the elder weird where they are. Not i mean there's the fucking bob newhart in an l. It's apparently believed appear to north north pole. Fifty seven and fifty eight. We run that by me. One more time we you said you said like when sequel is go to the north pole but like peter north north pole okay chaplain. Da were. i'm sure he appreciates that reference. Peter more die. We have one of those guys that might have love referencing too. Many things that happened like off pipe. You aren't listening. But i need to pause through second note that today or good friend. Pfc commenter on radio. We were on radio today eleven. Am every morning on sirius. xm he. We had an earnest question. Jim varney question he goes. you know. Twenty twenty seven so long. We've had so many deaths like i like jim. Varney died of covid right very confidently. He said like very confidently two thousand and twenty years ago us off by twenty years. It was stunning moment recipes. Jim varney major honestly ernest. His best work was ahead of him. Like if you think about like what. Earnest's could've done in the last twenty years of american life compared to like what he had to work with in the eighties and nineties. Unbelievable recipes Major recipe's jingle. Roy started to rail for that north. Who alive by the way. I traveled checked. Yeah it's not it's never it's always worth it. Just make sure okay. It absolutely is. You should put a song in that moment of silence. That happen okay. We talked about jim. Varney got thrown off your back to the christmas chronicles two or some other f- bell sniffle the dench a terrible name and awful name again. They get so lost in the story of what happened. And it's just it doesn't we. We've we've talked with is. What makes christmas movie. Good in like there aren't many classics these days anymore. Like being an all time at this point. It's kind of crazy. Because it's very reason most all-time krispies did not come out post two thousand especially halfway through that decade this one not that the last one is a classic but again it has a much more relatable thing and i think it spending spending too much time in the north pole. I think the weird thing too. I think is that when you think chris columbus right like he did the first two harry potter movies in exiles ban true and pixels. But if you think the first two harry potter movies like there was a shit tunnel lord of established there and he did it with no problem and then how do you not do that with fucking santa claus. All you need is santa claus and why did you have to overcomplicated that much. But i don't think people cares the thing. I think you you make it a worst movie by going like santa claus is something would built in lower if you grew up celebrating christmas or even grew up. Like if you'd fuck even if he didn't celebrate christmas you still do all about because our cultures like pretty centric on that is zero version of santa claus because santa claus is is good consumerism. Folks we know the story of santa claus in. I don't need to know more. I don't need no more. Elves in is so don't really like like visualize the north pole. I think it's something better left to the imagination. I think that's santa claus in a nutshell and it's like the more you see of the operations behind santa claus in the movies. It's kind of like they're trying to use his tongue in cheek version of like. Here's what santa claus is operation. Were really look like santa claus was real and it's just is never as clever as they wanted to be the closest i think to it was elf because you kind of santa claus did a pretty good job too though. Yeah you might be right. And here's the thing though. Both of those are regarded at elvis specially classical. Both of those are really well known in christmas and they both covered that kind of like tongue in cheek way but both in one the more like the more classic way with elf right the more traditional like toys. They're building toys with like wooden hammers and shit. And then the santa clause did it with the barry high tech stuff. You know with the suits and i see the cd players like a cookie and shit and why just latched onto that one. That's like the least the lowest tech thing in the movie but they've been covered and done well before and this one kind of commits to the to the morteki side. Though it's got a little like magic involved with it again. They build the magic to. It's like it's reminded me a frozen when he goes and he goes to the little elves who have like the star memory because don't they go into frozen to unfreeze her when she dies Yeah the little creature things. Yeah little trolls. Whatever trolls world tour. Yeah just it's it's so the more i think about it like it didn't it didn't have like a christmas feeling to it's weird to say is at the north pole but trail. I think you have it. Think it's i think it's the north pole thing is of what hurts is movie. It's on the other stuff like again. The brother my god. Some of the lines learned from the brother was fucking fascinating. Holy shit some of the worst. I've ever heard on tirees was like mind blowing in the beginning. Mother didn't bring much either like even like the kids or whatever but and again actually. Now i'd say that's like that's other part of the problems like the relatable human characters. They one the airport where she needs her. Dad is as a kid but like the pay off. There is really based around her hating bob. Also the other thing tires. Being named bob terrible terrible name for tyrese gibson like geez bob. I'm just regular and find robbie he would be fine. I'm just regular nice guy stepdad. Bob you may look at me and think that's roman pearce but look my name is bob. Now it's like no. That's not believable again. I think it really does come down to just over. Complicating the most simple dish you know. It's it's almost like what what's a us. Bacon and eggs did bracket that one time right like they took bacon and eggs and change the recipe up in added in fifteen ingredients to it's like. Why would you complicate something that works like you. Just make it. If you dumb this down to make a little bit simpler it becomes more enjoyable slop. And i think two kids. They probably feel like it because they don't need to understand it. They'd uc santa on screen. And that's fine but still man it is just. It's too much to follow as an adult. What you'll cat was that lake. You'll know who's the you'll cat man or murdering all the reindeer you. He says so dead pen to by the way those kids died of frostbite. Like sorry they were dead when he picked them up. They were absolutely not alive anymore. No chance they were frozen solid. They looked like. I don't know why am this is the one i'm referencing. Looked like mr deeds. Uncle when he was in the casket up or frozen. They're frozen stiff. Nice rhyme nice right. you'll you'll get and spins the you'll cat around like fuck you up like mario houser. Oh dude did. Part totally disoriented me i to take video of it and brew wind up back in like process because it looked like it was spinning from the wrong direction. Like start off with that. Goes back to the and this entire movie being looking like crap. You're right the way. Now that i'm watching the the way he's bending the force of the spin should make him bend the other way right. I just something. you're not. The camera angle makes it seem like he's being the the way the way it's being filmed with that. Like spinning focusing on his head is not the camera following or whatever is making it seem like the. The head is facing the center of the centrifugal force of the spin rather than being on the outside of the spent. I don't know how to explain it completely. Right watched it but just disorienting. To the point where i was like. That's not how that's that's not the cameras that that doesn't make any sense. I had to go back and do it was it was like the zapruder film there are like again it's not on its face abysmal or terrible like there some stuff like i kind of i kind of liked but it gets lost in this. This jumbled mess of too much lower again. The airport senior writer. That was probably the best part. That was the best part of the movie crazy predictable. It was it was but it was the most christmasy thing to yes and like it was the daddy's home two scene in the movie. The is it the big song and dance. Daddy's home mike. Seen that's like twenty minutes into the movie no wonder a musical number and daddy's home two a. Happened in the movie theater was all. We're all the magic happens. Like he picks up mel gibson from the airport. No it was. The there was some song they sung in the movie theater. Some big song song thing culmination in the we had in the airport scene where everybody's at the airport but nobody had bags and then there's they're singing christmas tree and elvis at the end man. I actually think. I actually think i would have liked this without the fuck it. The elvis is such a bizarre choice to me. It's so fucking weird again. Another layer for titles. I don't get. I'm pretty sure the old ask that he goes and he sees with the star. I'm pretty sure spoke. English appreciate you i. There is definitely an elf. That spoke english point that much. I remember. 'cause the exposition of this one. Too many important things he's got to speak english do also trauma santa christmas movie trope in. This might just be the santa claus and christmas. Chronicles too but young kid goes to north pole once in feels like they own. The place feels entitled like they own the place that if you send a kidney to the north pole when they come back they're gonna they're gonna fuck an act like they've been there their entire lives you know. It's one thing that this movie did that. I appreciate it and thought was cool because no one has done it before and that might be. The kind of a consequence of time is that they showed that els in the christmas village. Make video games so that is an explanation. That has never been done before. As as i know of that is finally now. That's on the table. Satisfactory makes video games. They don't just make fucking giant physical toys that no one really gets too often in comparison expenses. Why wise to video games so it was like goddamn cyberpunk to go out with the wrong. That's why you need to model in the dick features the dick selection features cyberpunk snap snap. They went on a strike and released the last of us to ending their deb's went nuts. Epic saga elf. Goes on wild durant trying to think of what else you know. The the weirdest part of airport seniors in santa claus look back towards the camera and said no russian and then i i what else The merry christmas in the sky and they react like it's like the world's not ending. Let's that's really cool. That often happens cataclysmic event in the fucking sky. I'm really bummed out about joining denison bell cynical nickel or whatever. Because he's a good actor. What was he doing this over a male in or he just didn't understand how to act in this but like what the fuck else nickel again. It's it's it's. It's a passable barely passable. Christmas movie but nowhere near anything. Good bye again. I think is the best onscreen. Santa probably in kurt russell. Because he's just a perfect santa santa. he's fine. I'll come on at prefer. Ed asner santa. i'll be honest. i did from curls. fine. I don't think kerr russell's jolly enough. No here's the thing. Here's the thing and i think he has the old charming look of santa but he has the energy that no other santa. I've seen as i think he is phenomenal. I did want you. Just wanna just wanna daddy daddy. Santa claus like aids version the version really for a loop that in the dancing. I didn't want the dance sequence. Even when you spend thirty million dollars on aging for movie it looks weird. Imagine what i did for like this. One was like twenty dollars and a starbucks gift card. The fucking your cat will get the you'll you'll catch so much i just i hate the name you'll cat it's probably so probably real. It's probably some german thing as to do bells nickel and crops and all that stuff him. Santa claus dots. You'll cat is real is very real. It's it's a mountain. Dwelling were vicious campaign that lurks snowy countryside. During christmas and eats people have not received any new clothes to wear before christmas eve. How caldo germany journey. Oh no sorry. It's iceland it gets icelandic icelandic. Okay yeah give me a movie about nine tall. Yeah santa claus. Eat your toes if you don't give them a stick of butter paula. Deen s monster. I don't know i. And i part of the draw. The movie is obviously the goldie. Hawn kurt russell thing great. They're fine fine yeah. I think he's the best part of the movie by far. Yeah the that's that's a low bar to clear i. I look the all. Were complaining about the weird stuff but the movie is infinitely more interesting because it's weirder than it has any right. The adds to easy to make fun of though very because it wasn't very good. No it's not very good but it's also like It also wouldn't be the worst you'd watch this year either. No that's also furniture at. Nfl is going to release twenty christmas movies. That are ten times worse than this. Which is what they do every year for less to at least two years. Now i'll note this. Lets you on notice to is. I think the fact that they had to emotional payoffs one with the dad. Which i which was nice. I thought and then with bell's nickel that kind of that kind of ruined due to the two big emotional payoffs. Yeah you gotta do you gotta be a little more silent like home alone. Ceases family looks outside south bench player. He sees his family. It's a it's a simultaneous. Like it was. It was just too much twenty. Yeah sorry. Christmas chronicles too. None of chronic. You know the christmas chronicles three is coming for sure. Like they're just gonna gotta add the hudson she the daughter real pain in the ass to jesus which chronicles are better. The chronicles of riddick the christmas chronicles or the chronicles of narnia chronicles of narnia. I let me pitch black though pitch. Black was awesome. Yeah that counts. That definitely counts underneath. The the chronicle ridiculing also. Do you ever play video game but yours bay or whatever that was that will apparently is very good. Yeah i love that game. That's vin diesel. Talk we looked back to roman pearce belt's nickel and then the the kid didn't i didn't hate it. I know i'm sure everyone hated theres's kid because it felt like it and we actually had a comment so it was a very played out the the. Oh i can't eat the chocolate. I'm lactose lactose. Free can't do that. Can't go up can't go on tall things scared of heights. That's gonna hurt you like i. I know that's like a classic over any fines us courage at the end today. It didn't bother me here. Normally would maybe. Because i was so bothered by a bunch of other things. I don't know what netflix. I'd rather the crappy christmas counter than than this must. It's a better movie. But if i'm gonna watch movie i wanted to be terrible. I don't like something like this. we're of toes. The line of being like right down the middle fifties. I want it to be really bad. Schlock garbage like terrible hallmark channel. Has one with daniel stern from home alone. Movies called battle of the bulbs. I think or deck the halls one or the other. Oh man dude bad. it's bad. But man i i love. It is so fucking bad. It's terrible and i really love that movie. That just made me now. I can't wait to hear the parody. Twelve nights of christmas song on the radio. That's my favorite time of year when that sun comes out you know what i'm talking about. Oh where it's like the these damn whites about his lights to fix these lines which is only and it's the only thing second to that is If the twelve dogs of christmas oh yeah the sirius. Xm holly like if you go if you throw on that channel. They insist on playing that every five hours like no matter what. You're going to hear that in a car ride. Oh my god a fucking. I got to listen that song after now. We should kind. We have time we have time. What's it called. we'll listen to it. Show you when we're talking about right now. I don't you don't know what the thing off pains of the twelve pains of christmas. Twelve pains if you've never heard this. No thanks i'm broke. I'll play and we'll play the We'll we'll play the audio hang on a second mainly we can pull it off of plugging love. Song is my most old man thing ever fucking love this here. Yeah such as such a great Christmas cards offers rigging the radio. Christmas cards hangovers. Raking up. has a real song is a commercial. Now he's playing. Hate those christmas cards hangovers. Lights guys to still issue with carl cheese us. What do you mean you begging out these car. Nineteen ninety-two yes basis. Subic riding up on christmas cards by one thousand nine hundred eighty eight the end. I'm sorry we happy. The thing that i feel like from nineteen ninety-two is the voice of the christmas card guy which is just get this. Yeah yes a such a stale davis. So i don't even know happy people the the paper and that so much singing christmas carols. Tv's parking song. Shut up boy. Think it's so fucking good every plate and be like isn't this the funniest thing ever and every year the chad will jack name just like yes absolutely christmas chronicles to it. Yeah you can watch far worse things just as it exists out there. The thing people are gonna talk about it. Because it's on netflix. Scott kerr russell in it and people like their santa daddy. Kim jong like sana daddy. That's me throated by kurt. Russell said you said alison brianna Did you guys ever see the community like Teach me how to understand christmas bit. She did song. I've finished community yet so no so. It's i think it's show me how to understand christmas. It's so funny. All right we move on. Manque on on sunday david fincher movie at the step up. Maybe actually i don't. Maybe it's fucking sucks. who knows. i haven't seen it the bracket true. What is the bracket. A bracket of gift cards. All right. these are these are best gift card matchups. The ones i give you right because you can't you can't really select your gift cards. You got Kind take it smile a little bit. So what i'm gonna do is we're going to go through a star with the match ups and i'm gonna tell you an amount amid tell you the store or restaurant to use the gift cards and then some of them have special regional locations and you guys got to pick out the matchups which gift card rather have. Okay okay all right. Matchup number one This one is a a number one seed versus A number when. I'm not doing seating. Can't do the mental mouth. It's two hundred dollars sears. Gift card versus a five hundred dollar. Macaroni grill gift card. Faulk now now sears. I don't macaroni grill. That's the thing. is you know. Macaroni grills are out there. But you don't know exactly when the next time you're going to encounter macaroni grill like you know. They're you know you can write on the place mat but the crayons but you don't know when the next time is but you do know that you can go online to sears dot com and use the sears dot com giftcard on like track apparel absolutely sears. Actually you know. I'll never spend that five hundred dollars macaroni grill. The closest one i could find is in wayne new jersey. It's so far like it'd be cool to go there with a big crew people and just pay off their bill and they'll be sick but even restaurants them to you got to be a mandir oni grill in wayne new jersey. Want to drive over and everyone just says no. So yeah i'm going sears. As well i'm going sears. Okay i think I think i'd go macaroni at sears. Wins out for this one Now keep in mind. It's a romano's macaroni grill. So ray ray owns it. Come zan of our next match. Point next match-up is they one hundred and fifty dollar office depot gift card versus a seven thousand dollar gift card to your local laser tag place So so i mean you can get a lot of good stuff office depot. You get pens. You can get computer stuff but seven thousand dollars basically buys you laser tag for okay okay. Here's what i would do. Take the laser tag gift card for the sole reason that i would give it to like an orphanage or something and make a big deal out of it and make myself look good. Because i don't think there's any the needle murder i don't get the needle mover. Look i if you go to an orphanage and you say hey look. I got seven thousand dollars gift card for laser tag. I want you guys to have it. I mean they'd like it more than i okay. Let me also say this fictional laser tag place by where you live. Also has an arcade attached with a big difference. Okay the orphans. Taking for myself. Yeah i would take the laser tag slash arcade gift card. A hundred and fifty bucks off office depot. Didn't get very far. If you want some good stuff against some red vines and spending seven you're gonna get a finger red vines. you're gonna get like a one parker pen couple refills. Maybe like you're not getting that many things for one hundred fifty bucks at office depot and say if you would've said seven thousand like dave and buster's gift card yep just laser tag note you throw in the arcade seven thousand dollars worth of the star wars like fighter thing where you're inside the cockpit you know what i'm talking about where it's like you're a giant cockpit fighters situation. Is that that dave and buster's actually. That's where i thought of that from. But i definitely spend seven grand on that so the we're going with the laser tag. Yeah yeah. I'm going with the laser tag thing to okay. That's a good pick all right so those to move on all right. Yep so the next. The next one is seven hundred and fifty dollar gift card to menards. But you don't live in the midwest so menards menards bernard's it's a it's like a home depot but it's more of a regional homedepot type place that guy say big money at menards a live in the mid west. You can't can't physically unless you road trip or buy online the web store and i don't know thad web store. The other match confirmed the okay so they have a website the other matchup then to balance out. The fact of a web store is a three thousand dollar wall. Walk gift card. But you live in san diego. Well how much is the menards one. Seven hundred and fifty dollars. I'm taking that one. Then if i'm stuck in san diego there's there's no opportunity to use the wall one. What would be the nearest wiwa made. I i did. It's not and in san diego. It's probably not in california right. It's probably like the last the the eastern part of a high. I think they're only in florida. Pennsylvania new jersey and probably ohio. Yeah that's that's gonna be tough.

S2E10: Good Eatin
"This is the wild oat family the farm podcast and Miriam and we just moved from the bay area to the heart of gold country in California we left the fast paced Silicon Valley lifestyle talked about poor little alice getting a snake bite swollen face but she's all better now and then I think we did a little Australian two weeks yeah absolutely so it's good you tune in today's August fifteenth right in the middle of August here so update where we told everybody about how we've had our goats starting to eat downed brush which is awesome restored the rotational reason Yep and here's for both the house in the bar that's pretty cool down that's great and since then we've done a little more wiring on the barn so we've got some light you ready to go check on the animals let's food force two awesome I'd love to grab some fresh fruit off those Fujii's are so good right now far food to our family members which is we're not really selling selling but we're giving them some food so quite fully open for business it is you season two episode of our podcast family farm podcast this is the hottest new podcast when I tunes over the project segment where we talked about the power going out and how you wonderfully got the generator working before the power now so we had general in and today we're GonNa talk a little bit more about how the rotational racing's going will mention that were now actually sunk the point and also were gonNA raise another batch of reports here coming up in the fall folks musical earlier for Food Segment Cherry dive into our farm update alrighty let's do it then we're GonNa do a food segment her and talk about some of the things we've been eating cooking whatnot and I'll have to create a little musical house successes and failures and everything in between morning usually by seven fifteen or so and and at first of course they're real eager to start eating all the brush that they can reach Okay Hi everyone I'm not cutting out by high of one two Nigerians are taken Maryland's kind of somewhere in the middle there hopefully they haven't made a lazy yeah so they've been eating you've got like a Colt and a baby animal winter somehow or some anyway so I was the last episode and Hon Brush though they really have it's still a little slower than I think I would like but sure at the moment that's good for you yeah I think that's pretty much what goes to all day long the KY-KO's seemed to be out there eating a lot more often though the Nigerians the few bites of that one plant per day there's only one of that type of plant in the area and so they're eating it definitely eating it's like half the and they've gotten to the point now where starting to break branches off their standing up up in either the man's Anita or one of the Scotch grew it's pretty good and it's cool also to see how they keep coming around different plants we have this Bush there's it must be like slightly poisonous grow out there get a lot bigger so there you nonstop seems like and they still take breaks it's like one break for five it just doesn't taste good or something 'cause it's still got tender green leaves right where they can reach him and they'll come for like a little nibble ago workouts and others in the normal Nibble Unin they mostly so it's been really great having our votes and Zane put out to work on the brushing every day I know it's about Yeah I really like it day that we both done instagram where I think it was one of the Nigerians because they're the biggest so they're obviously able to knock over the biggest branches broke a bit sitting in the shade chewing their cud and the Lynch go back and forth all day long hopping up eight more have rest in the shade above eat more branch off the man's Anita and then they all ran over her in from it and they were super excited pushing each other a little bit and then the Ky-ko's right out off our deck so we can look at the windows when they were in the kitchen living room Siham and one outside working I hear him now from that area they're old little slower they're not growing anymore either you know out there good girl in out but our Ky-ko's they need oh I think oh please keep eating brush down because otherwise I'm going to have to chop it down keep fertilizing the area and keep entertaining and so are we find out what that is I guess but yeah they like to have a good variety going around and eat and everything so thorough sleeves so since they've been eating so much I found myself really liking the goats a lot more now it's in sockets now and that's pretty much it on Dick I really need to do in depth discussion of that we added some some electrical wiring to the bar we're kind of hanging back because they would have gotten pushed out of the way and then once hearing sonic kind of finished in eight enough they walked away and future now with a medium size goats maybe we got twelve or so goats eaten are brush down moving the temporary fencing every so often the minor stuff if I'm doing anything with power tools they WANNA get right up there where the saw is were the hammer is you know so that's a little bit nicer now they're not we're kind of the others I'm really curious what that is actually mission find someone who knows about plants and ask them because it is it's like and I think we're GONNA end up leaving this fence up for about four weeks probably yeah so if we double the number of goats and then it's been just about two weeks so as podcast and things were going pretty well middle of August I talked about last time last time let's see we did previously they were doing a good job in our paddock area of eating down the brush and everything but it wasn't an area that was terribly overgrown you know there was some point I'm not interested in every three seconds with goats knows jammed into my armpit tear or whatever Oh and that's good stuff feels like a real place you could dirk fridges or plugged in well we flooding your hair lights I don't think we're going to use their journey barn getting all this workforce the payment the fertilizer and once we start breeding daisy alice we will then also start getting food ed with your antics out there doing all kinds of great stuff and when I go into the paddock area now to do some work on the barn or whatever plants break pretty easy poison oak there knocking over everything so they're standing up on their hind legs they're eating and they know what they're doing there I'm not even thinking about that with Maryland what that'd be Great Delicious Yeah folks say that when you have this just been brushing the milk doesn't taste very good Cobo but she's brushing yeah what she's eating yeah what's happened year if there's some nice green shoots for her to eat nowadays because we'll talk about the daily parade again which has been going pretty well but yeah so in the morning I give them about half the and baking soda and I think that's it so our hey costs it's tough to say exactly because when the grass was long wasn't giving him or the hey now I'm starting to this so it's pretty inexpensive now and it's only gonNA get cheaper as time goes on and we actually started getting some some meat back from those coats and food for six months and in the evening do say and then all day long they're eating off the brush out there and getting all the food they need was an oak that they cleaned up for us which was great but they weren't doing a whole lot of workforce right now they're working for us so I look out there and compared to pasteurized milk so we'll see it'll be great to get some bad for her so that's definitely true so we can see a pretty positive have a rotation where every two weeks during the new spot that's great that's excellent and doing all that rotational grazing where almost feeding them nothing but by the time that we're back inside and having breakfast when I look out there all Kinda gorged and they usually sit down for a little bit and that kind of approved the most reluctant fall program and then I stay outside the gate I've got the wrench home depot bucket with the with how much sugar everybody your taste buds and it wouldn't surprise me if people are also just use to drinking milk that like doesn't have a lot of flavor or some and from a very different area than they usually are so I'm looking over there a lot to ask cool saying yeah it's also could we take them out sort of first thing in food and I shake it around got all excited and then I opened the gate and they follow me and the bucket and I walk over to where we have the electric fence set up thank sort of and maybe yeah maybe it is a little bit of an acquired taste but at the same time maybe it just tastes great I mean raw milk tastes great I think it'll be delicious I think so too and I I was just GonNa say people probably just have funky tastebuds after a while we know nowadays in the paddock getting in my way and they don't let we bought him four and brought him onto the property for and I can really see how this is going to work in Makiko starting a bunch kept going for a while and saying walked over just forgot what was going on separately guys delicious week that's delicious and then they would just get freaked out and was like come on goat your heart is right here just get with the program but they were unhappy bald there so it's so funny why did they get you know so I am still giving him some hey as minerals sir the follow along and when we finally got her back inside the brushing area Zane was so sweet he came he was actually now they're they're starting to fall along a little better in fact he was so cute though when we were first bringing them over and we haven't figured out put them on a leash yet and so such a a deep and ferocious sounding bark when he means business and see him sniffing this little goat just to make sure she thing especially on our land would work and I do need to figure out how to get the fence up a little easier head to pound the post in this time which is not gonNa work uh-huh making sure she was okay and I don't know it was just it's something ridiculously cute about this huge dog who has and the DA goes inside and he puts a leash on saying and on daisy and Alice are two ky-ko's because they're the ones that have reading raped by the edge by the gate or excuse me by the fence and so we've got I'm not sure it was daisy alice at first days he was the one for them to brush for the day Dan falls along with saint unleashing with the two ky-ko's and lately they've been following along pretty well way before he kinda goes about his business as a guard I mean he's a great guard dog it's really interesting to see the past four days yeah those those first couple of days with the KY-KO's they got so excited by everything we what's over here what this is who was hanging back being obstinate yes so when we got daisy through then saying just started sniffing all over her like a nice little daddy dog he does more hey so I don't know exactly what is going to end up at but it's like we're maybe spatola goes today it's something like that right and were with with great pyrenees big white dogs very similar looking to Zane and so they were already for familiar with the dogs and comfortable with them he seems to see that area his to protect now and she's a few holes where he goes everything and he hasn't had to bark too much maybe every other day or something he'll he'll bark once or twice but it was interesting couple days after barking he goes he chases the goats away from the brush back up the hill away from where he was barking and different area I wasn't too sure how he would do with moving from one area to the next if you would feel like he needed to jump out of the the routine yeah so it's not so our daily Goat parade first thing in the morning we all traipse out and Dan puts like you said but I'm not GonNa Stop Ellen from going out brushing in united keeper inside Feeder Grain Inhale twos ridiculous so maybe we won't have the best tasting they have herd mentality right but it's not like a really tight knit dog pack thing and so a lot of dogs will bond better was sheep us sheep sheep flock is a much tighter thing than a herd but saint has still been binding pretty well with these goats is interesting it's like he needed to earn the pushing at it to try and get a break and then what's cool is once a big branch breaks and they all swarm Harry and I got some good real good pictures ago we were standing in a kitchen here's aim bark so we look out and it was kind of barking to the bottom left corner and then talk with our goatherd yes and actually a long-term model yes that will work well because we were one hundred percent sure how well this rotational grades how he's bonded with the goat's because he wants his pack right that's kind of how he bonds but goats don't quite have the same pack mentality Nigerians and they had gotten the message more already starting to walk up so you know he he moved goats away from the danger and then he went back down brushing area since we've just got those portable electric fences which I think they're forty inches tall something like that could easily hop over but I don't think we cry like eventually a cougar would jump in 'cause it could easily hop that four foot fence or coyotes bears I don't think bears Dan would walk in with Zane on the leash and beyond doing most the goats were in there and then I'd be taking whatever straggler either alice or daisy and trying to convince her I get up to close to him and bother him too much I did see him really early odd hurt the goats one time into the center of the paddock he was putting himself in between them danger and so I don't think we could really do the rotational grazing without him no great like I was saying earlier the Great Mall for us to rotate the goats around the property even though we don't have proper fits yeah yeah it is I mean he didn't chase him chase 'em he kinda just walked near and nudged nights yeah I think he nudged Ky-ko's or something and then he kind of walks near the that corner and start barking again a whole bunch deep yeah yeah and we haven't seen him do that very often most of the time he's pretty hands off with the ghost trey in in the evening and so now seen him do this again was neat because he's not hurting dog at all but it was great a half pound of goat feed pellets into the orange home depot bucket because they see that bucket in there like food don't get excited south or they would hop over somehow or something and so with saying they stay we don't need to worry so yeah so this is just bonded really quickly with them and that's cool it is great yeah and he's also doing a fantastic job guarding them in east signed to find a more meaningful life in the country while raising a new family redeveloping a homestead and permaculture farm come join us on this journey as we shall see clocked this coastline made to be pounded so we'll figure that out look at their jobs get out and it's getting better every day it seems like the goats are getting more and more used aw goats that much but certainly do and they would they would find a way to either scare the goats enough so that the goats decided to bolt add fence is backed hygiene hints and now that they let him hang up don't want to charge them and stuff and then the little ky-ko's thank it used to be right but very slow very slow when some of the other plans so completely not like start this so we start this all down to the ground I'm here is coming into fruition rotational grazing support it is it is it needs to work so he can rebuilt soil and so that more garland offers so rotational grazing has been going great toss this pretty cool so that sort of bit of our tree a good price point eventually what we larger volumes to make sure this is worthwhile because yeah and so were also gonNA be raising some chicks here in the fall we already ordered all of them and we ordered building up some extra eggs storage or not and same thing with the chickens how much we like and also we need to figure out next round of brooders so that will be able to sell them some chickens from that patches well that's really pretty cool I mean it's not like we're at the it's not like high margin business so we need so we do need to figure that out in the long run and this is the way it started up to we want to start getting some feedback from them on how things are going we want to figure out how much we'd like dozer other clearing but we need all that go poop so yeah so that's that's pretty cool that part of our planet than double and hopefully we can bring more of them to butcher because this last time unfortunate loss five chicks early on so hiney bit so and we're doing that because one it's a super easy transactions here is coming along so the other part of our dream of our vision here of course is to be able to to make some money to make money by selling I don't know if belt was really low quality or what happened to you know you need more than one instance to really judge but we're going to try Metzer if that's better than we'll we'll stick with them in is we have just started making our first farm sales to dance sister and her husband Lorna Brooke yes we've been selling them Ed at this time we will not lose those chicks were ordering them from Metzer farms this time so again we're thinking Har Koi checks but I don't know exactly stage yet where we're ready for business but it's exciting to feel like all his work is actually growing and becoming something where we're wchs and selling them some chickens from our last processing and review even bought extra baby chicks for this given on a dozen eggs a week right and maybe we'll do a little more a little less depending on what they want how the girls night yeah exactly when it's really hot they do slow down which and are excited to have a budget chicken and we also WANNA get some good feedback as far as how it is in the bag how well it was walk right how well it was butchered and what they think that Jeb lists and all that kind of stuff shrink wrap it's not rocket science or big deal sixty six birds which is a big jump up from last time think we're ready for it we'll see they did twenty five twenty five last time so a little but when you're doing these things yourself you don't have an objective view so when we get feedback from somebody else to what they think that they have told us that you can taste great to find out what they think so you're really excited yeah it's so it is it's really cool that we are actually like making some sale right and so we also have to plan now for such a larger brewed right and I decided to move the Bruder from one area of the barn the even we plan on doing I know and I I think it's really cool to grow food for other people too and so we sold them to chickens now because we still yeah and so we are going to sell twenty those birds to Lorna Brett so that's pretty cool they've got a deep freezer now in their garage and we eat it all the time and we know taste great so that's the most important thing and so that's covered but we want to Kim back we'll be helpful thank our eggs in our chickens your guess we need money at some point yeah at some point you know those pesky bills and such anyhow and what's exciting installs the middle stall so we've got a lot more room bigger yeah and it's more dedicated for just the chicks right there should be plenty warming CBS celebrates we're getting a tiny bit of income here so it'll be good enough to buy some soda in bag of chips is an enclosed room at the barn and I had built a Bruder with the with the steel roofing panels so now moved it into the just expose them to other viruses and diseases whatever yeah yeah exactly so there's a little bit of prep there in the barn we've already got the only have like ten point or something we didn't we didn't want to be completely out of chicken for too long so he's home two chickens and they're not too worried about that good ventilation the only thing I am a little concerned about is that house or snakes or something else could get in there easily and Leona would you like to have for dinner fat pasta what about all these fresh veggies we got from the garden and also I don't want the other chickens in there right so that will block the chickens from getting in there and stealing food yeah they would so I am going to go ahead and fill all the holes and also right now there's half falls in their summoned to go ahead and put up essentially well that's mostly what's going on farm here that's pretty good farm uptake I think we're becoming law will be yeah we'll be pretty well prepared for the larger matches we'll see toby something I forgot rusty in place and you know by its extra features in waters but other than that it's not too big a deal so put up welded wire fencing take awhile the top is the ground fresh ground nutmeg oh yeah I think that really helps I don't know come on so I guess it's going to be our first food segment yes so hopefully we can started off with a couple of good meals we had yes or I guess not full meals but early world wire fencing in between so we still have good ventilation in there but it's blocked off from creditors Predator yet sugar and all kinds of funky things and if you want to find organic than it's really impossible so non-organic sausage is very con- yeah right and we started making sausage with some ground pork that's right because it was when we got head we bought a half pig the if you have ground pork refusing other ground meat and it's flex sacred Turkey or something that's very lean they really does not come out big thing we make it home compared to having to buy it somewhere right I cannot buy good breakfast sausage yeah it's really hard to find especially once you start looking at the ingredients we've likes this beef and Turkey mixture yeah but I don't think we haven't liked peer Turkey because you've tried that and we've tried a mixture of Turkey in pork right I life okay crooked yes so it's really simply take ground in what we started off with ground pork and we found that the fat content is very important bunch of sugar in it or there's too much black pepper and or sums wrong with it or it's what's the one I just like spinach the infrastructure set up so we can pull it together we need to get close but baby chicks anymore quite often ETA my gosh shaken spinach venison sausage is not good anymore so I was complained in a bunch I guess about breakfast sausage thanks now that we've done this this is what our third time yes from baby chicks are third time yeah so yeah I think we'll do pretty well even if we forget something you know we've got enough because he's been real good and they are our ground beef is thirty percent fat right yeah so that makes a big difference too you can't do this with two percent quarter pick up we started it before we got our half pig spine from freehand farm right right right that is what we did and I remember when Dan suggests how's it possible what else should we have for dinner today the lesson take ground Turkey and you mix that in with fatty poorer car with a high fat beef which we had just this last round of breakfast Pettis inex- sausages not non-organic sausage has all kinds of crap in it so then we're trying to buy her and then even when we buy organic sausage yeah it often has recommend a couple of good food related there you go thanks we do yeah yeah and I think the top of the list has got to be the homemade sausage patties it's the best oh good that's like dry yes dry bricks yeah it's dry Brecqhou which is not so tasty but we found that did I thought we're going to do what that just seemed like a difficult thing to do and not difficult at all especially I think that the thing that really takes it over I guess I don't know he'd never quite prepare yourself as a mom for when your kids are GonNa start shoveling food down there little like oh all right I think the media law so it was so we use the Elton Brown respites right which is like a food network he to cook more like I keep thinking I'll only need about this much sausage for breakfast of like nope underestimated if it was suspension fetter you don't edible sage but but say grow so well here and so I can't believe I didn't do that yeah that's right I haven't focused I sean herbs yet and I think we need to yeah we'll get there they will get so anyway with all of our freshers from the garden it was excellent those okay pretty good but I think think faith and when you did it it was a one to one ratio yes and I think that was too much Turkey a great these sugar we skipped it he might action I think he might call for Cayenne pepper to is now that can't be right I feel like there's one or two skipped he and his and he actually in his raspy he pretends like you're grinding it on the spot right but it's a recipe for like two and a half pounds that's why we used that we made it's real good so simple you just do the ground Mitchell spices yeah pettis done so we've liked pure pork and then three to it's a recipe for two and a half pounds of meat right that's what we use five pounds of meat doubled everything with it and it's basically salt let me quick okay well yeah big yet what to do more soon so totally encourage everyone to go make your own side patty so we recently did three three two two or three pounds of beef to to Turkey okay so maybe that's you don't five pounds of ground sausage meat we then formed the patties and made them on parchment paper on baking sheet into the freezer so they freeze aches which I was happy to do but we kept having breakfast where I was like make it a sausage breakfast and really everyone likes sausage breakfast
232: Dan Fichter on Infinity Runs, Sensory-Motor Optimization and the Neurology Driven Warmup in Athletics |Sponsored by SimpliFaster
"And that's what it wants to be able to move efficiently and people think it's i gotta get strong. I gotta get mobile joints unique. Good sensory input. That's going to create your fantastic motor. Output and the complexity of the infinity walks the visual stimulation the vestibular the automatic weight shift that you have in the infinity walk the complexity of the movement in that figure eight all these things up to these sophisticated neural networks that our body craves and it was designed with learning and emotional disturbances in mind of helping kids with with these types of issues but in reality it helps us move cleaner and when you see somebody doing infinity walk. And then they're doing their skill like whoa which has happened there. So we'll do it in a like for football practice. We'll do it before an individual practice were were doing wide. Receiver routes right. We'll do it before that will put it into a circuit at the end of our workout. That i do on the field. I hardly ever go back into the weight room to do are in season training. We're always doing stations. Outside one of those stations is always infinity walks. There fell crawl. Dern infinity walks. They'll walk jog the hold their breath. They'll do all They'll do farmers walks doing all kinds of different things. That was dan victor. And you're listening to the dislike performance podcast and before we get to the show. Today i wanted to mention a really cool item that is available from our sponsors simply fast dot com in their store. That item is premium. Wearable resistance accident is a series of tight fitting sleeves along with uniquely shaped fuse. A form weights that strapped directly onto those sleeves. So what i mean is you can have. Shins leaves arm sleeves shorts and a vest. And you can strap. These uniquely fuse a form shaped weights their light nature. One hundred two hundred grams that strap on in a way that allows you not only to resist movement vary specifically but also add fine tuned elements rotation to that resistance. So this is the next level of wearable resistance. You may have heard this from back long ago on the show. Hank cryan hof talking about it too. Recently chris corpus coach talking about it. This is the next level in premium. Wearable resistance. I've used it myself. I love it. I love not only the way it feels. And the way you feel Form technique change at combining technique with power and so often we just think about waited vast as just pure force pure downward gravity loaded resistance. This is the ultimate combination of technique with power and it shows up and things like chris corpus being able to take time off an athletes. Ten meter fly by putting the sleeves just on one side of the body and ipse lateral resistance. We're using the body's own systems fine-tuning it and that's what this does. It allows you as the coach or an athlete to create explore and fine tune the way that the resistance is rotationally. Impacting the body. This is next level stuff. And i know you'll love it so you can check that out and simply faster sore head over to simply faster dot com. That's simply with an eye faster dot com and get your exit gear today. The nervous system is kind of this last frontier of sorts in sports performance athletic performance. And really even just human being performance. It is complex but highly highly relevant to every single daily tasks that we are involved in and oftentimes where we've tried everything else. There is a neurological limiter. That is keeping us still in pain or keeping us away from the horsepower and the Just the the true. I guess you could say that. The full capacity of what we are capable of as human beings and so the more we learn about the nervous system the more we can understand one. Just how good coaches and to program training well but to be able to find that why that one athlete is just not responding to this trading stimulus or what what can we do with them in interviewing their nervous system to be able to get a little bit more output or to get them out of pain and the man to talk to when it comes to taking more i could say dry more clinical grade. Neurological ideas importing them over into everyday athletic performance. That you can nuts and bolts us right now in your training sessions. That would be victor. Dan is a guy who is absolutely passionate about human performance in all facets but is particularly interested in the nervous system. He's been on this podcast. Several times chatting about the nervous system is was perhaps db hammer and the you know. Sport tight trading systems. He's an outside the box thinker and one of my earliest influences a coach. He also is the owner of wanna. Get fast the a gym in rochester new york and he's trained loads of professional athletes. Olympia across the swath or wide range of sports. We've talked about neurological concepts in the past with dan on this show. We're going to get into some things that i think are particularly pertinent or that have come up really and maybe just say the last one hundred episodes of the show but things that i'm thinking about and i know are popular and amongst just coaching conversation and those are neurology. In respect to metrics are also going to get into isometrics from long duration coaching standpoint youth versus high school middle school versus more developed a professional athletes. What do they need from that. Extreme isometric or performance isometric type realm and. We're gonna talk about crawling neurological elements of crawling. We're gonna talk about infinity walks and head gaze stabilization and the benefits that that brings not just from a general perspective. But also how you could tie that in with skills and skill acquisition. We're gonna talk about the idea of sensory proceeding motor and what that means from training athletes in keeping an eye on that. And finally we're gonna talk about. What is dan looking for in a neurological level warm up and also what these wards ups and neurological based workouts look like dance going to give you examples of workouts. You can do with no equipment at all that stimulate the body intensely from that neurological perspective and are extremely versatile and useful when working with really anybody but just great nuts and bolts ideas taking complex things and putting that out in a format that we all can use to get better and have more weapons at our disposal as coaches in helping athletes to be the best they can be. I really enjoyed this chat. Dan i know you will too. Let's get onto the show then. It is fantastic. Heavy back on the show. So i wanted to kick this off with. Let's just say the top three things that you felt you learned from jay schrader so i know you spend a lot of time talking to him learning from him and i'm curious with everything you've learned in the neurological world in that space. What three things have really stuck with you from your time in learning from him as i as i dive into this neural stuff even deeper and like we were talking before i start connecting dots so the first thing would be the isometrics and not just the term isometric but the ways in which j implemented them and the thought process behind it. The intent has connected more dots for me in the last five years than it did. Twenty years ago when he was talking about it. So that'd be one is the extreme isos extreme slows. Whatever you wanna call them. I think not just in producing results but producing answers for other systems. Okay so that'd be one another one would be j. Always used to say that as he looks at somebody. Everybody's fast in everybody strong. They just can't display it and i gotta tell you. I think i believe that statement i really do. I mean you know if you just took somebody who was three hundred pounds in in grossly obese. They want to run fast if they lost two hundred pounds. A hundred towns. They'd run faster right so finding different ways for them to display being human and that was pretty powerful statement that i think i've learned from him that i've again connected the dots twenty years down the road and then it's always been with talking to jay is the body's ability to absorb force. And whether it's your foot hitting the ground when you're running in your whole body absorbing force and creating stiffness and all that stuff it goes by the word of you can't create force unless you can absorb it if you want a forty inch jump. You can't create a forty inch jump unless your brain believes it can land safely from forty inches in the air. So i think those three things. I can translate into anything that i do in any work that i do. I love i could save a little bit about all those things but one thing i really want to focus on that i think is great is intention. That's something that i've just been thinking about more and more myself with anytime you put the body were. You're basically doing nut not doing nothing. You're slowly sinking into their things are lengthening pulling in a position. Whatever you want to say you have a lot of time between you and your mind and your thoughts and your your neurology right. And so like. What is the been the big breakthroughs with intention in the last few years. Well there's a guy by the name of sean sherman who created the system square. One as you know one day we were chatting about his system and he mentioned the word intense. Be wrapped into these isometrics. And i'm like wait a minute. This is twenty years removed from jay. Schroeder telling me about pipes and all these things that you need to put it into your exercises. And i think that was the biggest. Take home in sean system. Was these isometrics. Yes the brain understands joint positions and better than it does muscle interaction and then the intent wrapped around. It makes it even more powerful. So it's crazy when you can connect dot twenty years later. Yeah i had the. I know like when you can find different. Worlds that have are saying basically the same thing it just makes it easier to draw lines triangulate and kind of find that the gold that realized the commonality. I was able to have the opportunity to observe. Shana work with him and learn a little bit about his system. A few months he goes awesome. It as soon as i was going through there and like i wish i had more time. I want to master the stuff that is so it is so awesome. But i know he does like the signal six isometrics. Could you explain a little bit about those isometrics. And the intention the way you would prescribe intention in those and as opposed to like extreme isometric pulling into position type thing. Yeah so so. Shawn's whole system is based off how the brain perceived ground reaction forces right. And i think what sets his system apart from a lot of systems that are out. There is the fact that he takes human gait into consideration every step. Because every step you take your body finds the easiest and safest path to complete the task that could change from steph to stem from joint to joint and square. One is the only system. I know of that can actually find and locate those systems. And sean always says it's like interviewing the nervous system. And i believe that in and that's where it's become real powerful for me in terms of to pinpoint joint actions that are intolerant of this low. Dj talked about absorbing force. But now i can be even more pinpoint to find the joint. That is where. I need to focus the intent. So so yes. So these are the signals. Sixers sean system. it's it's Rather than i guess like a bigger more multi join isometric or maybe it could be but it is it more like clinical like more like a single joyner and a shorter duration. Or how are those shakeout. He's he's gruesome isometrics together that cover Some various joint actions that are really important in human locomotion. I'll that's what i'll say and it. It's almost like a hand. Grenade approach to to treating somebody and getting them to move more efficiently and then square one piggybacks off to where it's a little bit more specific to exactly what that athlete needs so again. When you're talking about neurology you have to hit it. Perfect when you hit it perfect gigantic things happen. And i think the difference between signal six square one is very general nature signal six but but that general in nature still when you induce a stressor. It's still answers the equation most of the time because it's covering most of those joint actions. Yeah that's actually what. I was going to have that written down to ask you. You mentioned a few minutes ago that the mice metrics in the will produce an answer. And so what like. What is it the isometric answering like the problem. The body has or how could you explain that. A little bit more the joint. That's in tolerating the logos coming into the body. And the way sean describes it as win the foot hits the ground de entire body hits the ground. It's not just your foot. Your ankle joint issue knee joint. It's your knee issue opposite shoulder in j used to say this all the time. Water will find the crack. If you dump water onto something it will find the crack and boom and we'll go through. That's exactly what force does and your body's if finds the intolerant joint and boom that's where all the forest goes to and now you're going to have pain in that area or you're going to have some type of compensation along the way that gives you joint pain in an opposite limb or something else square. One traces it all back and finds these layers and as you peel these layers back. Your your movement starts to melt and it just changes. It's crazy. I really liked that term. The water finds the crack. And and how you put that together. A shod like the idea with the foot and it just ended whole-body hitting the ground this this full body collision in that crack happening. You're talking about the isometric answering the question of what where was the crack and then using the isometric to remedy that situation. Yeah in in. What plane of motion did the crack occur in is in the agile plane is an emmy. That's how specific it gets and it's awesome. It seems like to me. I mean as explore isometrics more. I just really really cool. Show a steffan jones where he was talking about isometrics for the purpose of more more global like skill acquisition like. Let's use it to help someone. Run jump throw and put them in the specific like a friend's boss term like the attractor position and then let's fortify that with an isometric and so i think that's a cool example from a global and any also talked to having huge advantages over like a concentrate centric like a regular lift. Because there's just it's almost like there's too much noise and there's not enough any chance for a specific like honing in on that train and so would you say i feel like in rehab or like reconditioning those types of setups. It's probably like kind of the same deal. I mean maybe just on a smaller scale. Yeah i think the way i look at. It is if you had you know those those satellite dishes if you put satellite dishes on each one of your joints everywhere on body. They're constantly searching for that feedback from the environment and like square. one finds the satellites. That aren't working real well. It turns the satellites back on and boom here. We go in. It's as simple as turning it. Just a certain way to make sure that the force that's coming in goes out and it doesn't get caught in there and create you know neural confusion so really in a way i mean from a like a water in the crack just like keep using it like but it but finding that that joint that were the forces just not tolerated. It's really finding that joint. And then is this joint a. Problem in the satchel play in the frontal plane the transverse plane and given an isometric that just represents that issue. So if i have a frontal plane issue in the hip then. I'm going to get a frontal plane isometric to remedy at versus a different joint action or something like that. Yeah and i think when you study systems and not symptoms you look at like like sean system is if you take somebody who's watching somebody run and they say okay. I see disc problem with my is. Sean gives me this example. And i use all hips. All of his little aecom soundbites their incredible. If you took a picture of a sunset in a sunrise and you put them side by side in you ask somebody to pick out which one was sunrise in which one was the sunset. You'd be grossly mistaken most of the time. Then you'd get the group of people who say okay that's a sunset in. Here's why and they'd come at you. And they tell you a story they'd give you fifty different concrete. Things that are happening to show. That's a sunset or sunrise. Then you'll go nope. It was a sunset use sunrise. Well you know so. People always try to paint a story about what they think they see. That's a mistake because until you interview the nervous system and truly find out. You really don't know you're guessing and some people can guess right. Some people are really talented at that. Some people think they are and have absolutely no idea what's going on. I've seen too many systems. Identify joint issues or neuromuscular dysfunction someplace so far away from your pain that would make your head spin. Do you remember when i took a trigger. Point away on you in your trap or chris corpus's basement on your knee down behind your knee to a trigger point in your trap and you're like how did that happen. That's the nervous system. So if you don't know if you don't have the key you're just guessing yeah. I remember that quite well. Actually the you're it'd be like i'd have a trigger point and you just pressing a different places and eventually that trigger point would just melt away like i've never had anything like this happened before it's crazy so that so then and then i and i hear dr eric skies the difference between magic and science. Like if if blaine gets on tv. And he makes the statue of liberty disappear. Everybody's like oh my god. That's magic until you call them up and say hey. Tell me how you did that in a soon as you understand what he did. It's not magic anymore science. And it's because it's the knowledge of why in how and once you figure that out. She get a lot of stuff done. Yeah the i've i've definitely experienced. That emerged back in. And we did In chris's basement. We're doing like the opposite. The good side bad side yards and all that stuff and it was really cool. I've never experienced anything like it. So in terms of like talking about interviewing the nervous system i know maybe you can get a un sean. On sunday i know you guys have been unlike robbie's podcast and stuff. I think that's a whole talk in and of itself and probably really. Just see getting the score so i i'd like to get to talk actually about as long as we're on the topic of isometrics. I'm curious how how have your distributions as a coach changed over time in terms of regular lifts isometric movements time. You spend in the warm-up before you get to the meat and potatoes how those distributions then altered over time. I gotta tell you. I think my warm up is more important than actual training number one number. Two covert has made my style of training with isometrics in body weight stuff way more effective than most coaches that are out there because nobody really knows anything about the way we train is symmetrically. So i think the necessity of having to be able to like i just did a zoom session before we got on here with my football team at twenty guys on there and we beat him up in about twenty minutes in were basically doing body weight exercises so all inspired by by j stuff and then adding some of the neural stuff that we've learned in and some of the signals six concepts that shawn's created it. Just it makes it fits seamlessly. I mean that's the thing that i really that that the extreme isos and all that stuff like the hip circles or the shoulder circles. It's just like the exposure the neural exposure. You're giving your body is just i mean in in Even let's say a three minute lunch or a three minute. Push up is so far beyond what people would typically intake in a training session. There's just a lot of infamy. I think of it in terms of how much information is coming in the system. If you kind of distill exactly to just to information. And that was a breakthrough. I had a couple of months ago. I was like what if we just looked at. How much information is the brain being given by. Whatever you're doing at the moment and so so basically procession. I got take me through it. Like what were you guys do i so some of the different isometric as a segue to learn more about your warm up. Take me yes. Some of the things you were doing so the first thing that will do is we'll go through a signal six routine right and then if we're out on the field which we weren't tonight we're just in a zoom so what we did tonight was did some ice. Oh lunges at thirty seconds clip but again it's focusing on the position the muscles are contracting and then sometimes we'll add different positions will add a complex movement up top will add a complex movement on the bottom for doing something top We tag pushups. I call him brain pushups. Because if you're moving your hands in a different way your brains like wait. What's going on so you're cerebellar engaged. We do that. We'll do our rebound pushups off of that. What else do we do tonight. One of my most favorite things that i learned from jay was quick style exercises. Have you ever heard him talk about that. I've never heard him talk about it. But i think i know what you're saying like kind of like the is where it's like ice. Oh and then quick and the nice quicker. The towel stuff a. It's all towel stuff so all the kids had a towel tonight. And we're doing a my favorite exercise is a towel curl press where they crow it up over their head they pull it down and then they extend the triceps. So there's there's everything about body movement in one exercise and will jay would say. Is it recovers you at the same time it's training so you're training biceps to triceps biceps to triceps. So that reciprocal inhibition. there's that it's just. It all flows seamlessly right in terms of human movement. And then when you get into studying the brain and the brain stem and everything it's all affliction extension synergy and that's all human movement is in in when that becomes reflexive. That's how elegant athletes move. I like that too. I like Well i i actually did kind of the same thing. Not not all that but like The towel stuff so when yeah when covid hit and i you know this is back in march april and i'm being tasked athletes workouts at home. I'm like and i. And i know what their equipment is generally speaking. I'm kinda racking my brain like man. What am i gonna do for like pull ups and like like some of these things because people didn't have a polo bar and i'm just like towel like i just. I put it in that towel curl quick town and it's like yeah you're not you're not hanging from anything but you're still reciprocally activating your lattes and it's still would max intention. It's still the same motion and so it's almost like super simple. But just max intention. And i liked that drill. I i think that those one of those things. I'm like i got nothing else here. So let's do this you know. And it's it's it's fabulous fabulous. You've talked about this before. I think on the podcast but i and i like this too. It's like man. If i have only a certain amount of time and i wanna make something effective as possible like taking an ice. Oh lunging doing different Like a. You're doing like cicadas like with a thumbs up and then the is flick back and forth and the complex motions. Is that towel worker. Was that something else. So if i'm trying to get the brain to pay attention to a movement to an exercise like a simple bridge everybody does a bridge in a in a workout right. We see them all over the place for gluts and everything if you just did a simple if you just did a simple bridge and you took your extended leg in you traced a figure eight with your leg or your arm for that matter when you trace a complex movement. You're sarah lights up like nobody's business so now it's saying it gives meaning to the exercise of what you're doing so it actually creates I call them like a neural imprint. On this is hip extension. This is what it feels like. He wants me to pay attention to this movement so there it is so that's very sir. Bella based is when we do complex movements. And if we're doing something from from a brain stem activity we're gonna talk about facilitating different flexes or extensive and we might grin. We might gargle. We might have our is in one direction. All these things influence the contraction that you're trying to promote so it's like a synergistic effect and once you get the brain to buy into those contractions. They've become more powerful. that's us. i'm actually. I'm actually greeting right now. Thinking of having a group of people extreme is sewing and seeing the put. A smile on your face of contagious. I don't know but like there's this. So what actually. I'll say this before. I get any more into it. As as you mentioned like doing like ballots a thirty second isos and things like that. And i know you know. Jay is prescribed some really long. I so hold. So where do you kind of tend to flow on that spectrum right now. In terms of your typical prescriptions and wear and win really young kids like my son's ten. I have him hold isos for as long as he can because at that age. I think it's about manipulating body weight in understanding your body weight and understanding where muscles are muscles do what enjoy positions so i get him into a perfect position. My son and i make him hold. It is long as he can and then when he begins to break down in certain areas i know those the areas i need to target in the rest of his training so the younger you are the longer will hold it. The older you are the more developed you are as a mover and again all we're doing is training people who walk and run. That's what we have to do. That's the end goal here. Is you have to walk after run. If you can walk and run you can jump right that. That's an easy in easy Transition so as you get older we're gonna start waiting things. We're going to start shortening the time making the contractions more intense. All these things will start to get a little bit more complex but the younger kids they come in hold positions because when they run they can't even hold their body weight up when they're wrong. Why would i have them run. You know i feel children and i. I've experienced this in working with club. Track and field as i mean kids as young as age eight but i found some of the best people that isometrics. We're actually like ten to twelve year old. I should say maybe like ten to thirteen year. Old girls were just amazing. Holding like an isolated. They were really good but then some of the kids and it was interesting because at that age it really did seem to correlate pretty closely with with how fast they're i'm not saying an isolationist is gonna make you fast but i i think what i was like the kids who were strong and explosive and cared and i think there's just something about being a younger athletes just moves more naturally and the. There's better at isos. Like i was just i literally just recording podcast with marc wetzel and we were talking about how good like young. Rock climbers are like little kids who can like hang their ability to hang and just sustain. Those guys symmetric contractions. It's like they can go up on the rockwall and then come back down. And we're an adult they'd have to rest two or three minutes and shake their arms out and the kids like boom right back up. You know no no problem. It's almost like they're movement to strategies or whatever haven't really been i guess you you say that's exactly right. It's i think it's appropriate maps right. There they're compromise as you get older because of all the injuries or the the way you move incorrectly that all adds up so then when you go to show something that's perfect. You really can't do it for that long my son when he was six. Seven and eight could hold lunches for ridiculously long time getting a little older in. He's playing more sports and he's developing more these are. I've got this right. You know. I bumped this now it becomes less and less so the challenge becomes even more. It's it's interesting how that works. He was more pure when he was younger. Yeah i. I'm still trying to like super fascinating. Actually having young children myself and just watching them move and just how easy it is. I'll stick man if i could be to have this this raw programming again before we will whatever happens. It's i just so. I was i've ever since i've had kids. I'm like man. If you take a child moves and then put power onto it really the the end of the day goal. That's as for an adult athlete whereas we just have so many cowan. Wear all these compromises. Come in i like you said yeah. Proper sept of injury Stress and inflammation is probably a lot of things anxiety. All that stuff can. It's a stressor on the body so as distress is going to change what happens to your body and whether it be weight that you put on your shoulders or whether it be All day at work. It's gonna change the way your body expresses itself. Yeah so in in terms of like ironing those out. I have heard like an isometric as kind of a good place to at least hopefully reduced compensations and restore a better state or maybe in itself is a little bit of a shot gun. Do you feel like i mean. How do you feel like restoring the body to the natural state in terms of how important isometric versus like some of the other modalities. Do you think you can take an athlete and absent of other modalities just doing enough isometrics restore an optimal state or do you really need like the other things. The vision the vestibular the proper sept- of some of those other iras just totally case. By case. i think you need a combination of all of that stuff. Going on. I think you need adequate vestibular stimulation visual stimulation appropriate after stimulation to induce all kinds of recovery. And i think that some of the literature that's written on recovery leaves out the vestibular system. And i don't understand that because of the stimulus system is in charge of your para sympathetic when you have too much of your fist. Immune system going on you throw up. It's the rest digest so why not put that into recovery workouts. Say it's not anywhere in the literature of iraq to recover right when a baby cries. Sympathetic are nuts. What do we do. We rock them. We do that naturally. We don't even think about it. Imagine trying to write that into some powerlifters program sitting in a rocking chair. They're not going to do something like that but in reality that's how we are designed. That's what creates relaxation. And that same system can increase your sympathetic tone. Right if you really amp up your vestibular system here comes your extensive tone. Everything is turned on. So it's like whoa. What's the kenny. Chesney song says the cure is the is. The the cure is the disease diseases the potion. It's the same thing right but you have to train it. yeah. I i've not feel bad that i don't know that kenny chesney. I like kenny. Chesney haven't listened to stuff. Like i should know that somewhere anyways. Okay so i had a based off what you're saying. Actually i have a question. It later later in my question list. But and before i forget to i really liked that idea of the The pushups with variation. It was michael's refill entirely your be They of the group emergence sean. Because he's in there too But i do a lot of exploration based movements and one of the simple ones. It's just just push up and change your hand position every time. I was messing with the different movements. That's like i really like this. This is so simple. But it's great you just you really distribute forces in An interesting we are different way through each. You know every time you put your hand in a different place that you're going to hit the muscle and a little bit different way and so you're not for one. You just aren't having the same joint stressing it's more a more robust system and so i. I really liked. That started putting it in my warm ups all the time and his felt like it it. It was kind of one of those things to like. If you were gonna do like a really heavy. Like max push up. I guess with wait on your back. I feel like doing the variable before would open up the nervous system. Maybe and i like stuff like that anyways. So i wanted to ask you one. I guess if you have any thoughts on that but really you like the rocks and so I know you've done some work on crawling and in some of your neurological presentations. And so i kind of wanted to ask you. What role is crawling. Plan your program beata Recovery day if it if you could stimulate the vestibular system crawling for the recovery day or do you use it on the main days or how. How have you taken that training modality. I think i think crawling can can be linked to Movements like the infinity walk right this neurological cooperation. That's going on You have these sophisticated neural networks that we have and you're just enhancing them so again. I always talk about system. So i was speaking about square. One and sean in his system and map allay i. I don't know if you if you've heard of matt from canada montreal. He has a system that he calls. Ip which is all about motor patterns in how we develop movement since birth right so he focuses on the tactile vestibule appropriate septic system in in stage one two three of these movement competencies so going back in integrating the way you crawl than how you crawl plays a huge way in how you've developed movement right so if you want to develop that extensive chain heart of it his learning how to crawl pick your head up and getting your is in the correct position to start to embrace your extensive system because we're born into election so going all the way back in rehearsing some of those patterns and getting better at it can prove huge dividends in the way you run in the way you walk. Yes so i want to dig into that 'cause When i was interviewing tim anderson original strength. So it's like he's like crawling guys. I've seen it. He said like you want to have a silverback posture and lift. Your head. up is forward and never asked him why. But as you're explaining it. Because i was just working with an athlete i mean i feel like i have to say this. Every time i work with new athletes as people who just don't wanna lift your head up and so we if someone's crawling with their is down or a little bit and that's their natural mode. It seems that they're crawling. What does that tell you about that person from neurological perspective or why is important to lift the head up. Actually it's like the extensive chain or can you go into that a little bit on. Why it's important to have a head up and crawling. Well when you when you start to develop movement you move just to move right. And then there's movement with intention so then your eyes have to come up and now you're searching for where you're going. You're looking for a location while you do that. You start interacting with your vestibular system with the way your eyes converged. The way i see the horizon and now that develops your posture and that's part of your movement competency strategies if you miss that along the way that's going to hurt you down the road and to trace that back. It's it's incredible. We go through some of these exercises in the ip course. It's pretty cool to to to do certain rocking movements tactile stimulation different vestibular exercises and all of a sudden the way your gate unfold. It just changes. Because you've never been you've never met those competencies so we trace it all the way back. I mean too soon. Were doing all these advanced exercises and everything when in reality we might not have developed what we really needed. One of the things. I've been interested in lately is just the interaction between things like like eyeso- lunch and a bear crawl running and what impact to do one and then the other are just simply doing crawling and then running and then crawling and then running and it's like you feel you almost feel this different form of activation when you make that change over and so simple to it's like the simplest. It's one of the simplest things you could possibly do. But i've just noticed that. I don't even know why i started doing the house like just bored and boredom my tip runs and new something else. I'm gonna do. Some crawls and i just felt almost some some strange and better engagement as i stood up to run. I like this. I'm going to keep doing more. So i so basically you're saying it's it's really a primal or an early activate extensive chain and if you lose that then you're probably not activating your extensive chain. The recent individual. I had training. Who was very poor at lifting. His head up was also very dominant. And so maybe those two are related right like not getting that meeting going again. Everything is in that brain stem. Sara bellum in cortex. These things need to be developed. An hardwired into your brain and we go to these such advanced movements so fast that have we really even experienced belly on ground crawling or regular cry. We haven't we skipped over. Some thanks. And you can see these deficiencies as you get older as you get more injuries. Even the primitive reflexes. Play a role of of the non-integrated reflexes. That's another whole thing where you know people will say to me. Well you stimulate the bottom of somebody's foot and all of a sudden they're range of motion changes. Yeah that's what happens. If you don't have a reflects its integrated absolutely can cause huge changes. I mean if you just think about the tactile feel in your hand. So we're all into this shoulder fluctuation. And i have to get full range emotion on my show which starts that is the tactile feeling in your hand. Because that's why we have an elbow to bend are arm and to feed ourselves if we if that if we lose that sensation that tax on station. That's gonna jam everything. So i'll tell some people before they even go to the doctor to get examined for a shoulder issues. Kick get one of those neuro. spike falls. Rub it on your hand a little bit in. See which one's more sensitive is the one that were shoulder hurts. Yeah rubbed a hand out a little bit movie. Shoulder now has feels different. Will you just woke up everything that your brains connected to. Sometimes it's that simple actually. Got one of the spike balls from a when i was at shawn's daily clinic and actually jeff moyer had one because as he said i could take my kids like playing with it but i always like just like rubbing my hands on that thing and like it's weird because i injured hand like that. I almost ripped the finger off and just the sensation on the palm of the hand. Not even near the finger necessarily is a lot different and come to think of my shoulder on that right side has been feeling weird today so i'm going go when i'm done with this. I'm gonna go in and stimulate the hand and see if i can tell you you do that and then text messaging you'll be. How does that feel better in that. That's matt's course right so now you integrate all these different courses this ip courses it's fabulous when it comes back to tracing it all the way back and putting it. Together with sean sean. Course which is the the pasta security stuff. it's just amazing to see and then then matt teaches another the pasta algae. I'm sure you've heard of that. That stuff's crazy again. When you're talking about these primitive reflexes and and that the action that can happen just from stimulating some of these reflexes. It's incredible it makes what we do in the weight room seem so i mean again. We go to that equation. Ten percent of voluntary movement is controlled by your brain. The other part of that movement is all reflexive in nature. I tell people this. If i'm reaching for something with my right hand. My right hand movement. That voluntary movement is controlled by left cortex. My left cortex intern fires. The pm are f that stabilizes all the muscles down my left side. So i don't follow over when i pick that thing up. That's the part. We don't train if we train that part we get way more benefit way more benefit. You're listening to the just live performance. Podcast brought to you by simply faster. I like the idea of And you've said this is the sensory proceeds motor and even Even before i found that spiky ball with all the textures episodes. I love using lacrosse balls. And i think i had to get over because it's almost like we start learning enough to be dangerous and the thing i was learning to be dangerous was oh well these balls really stimulate the fast. Yeah we pegged this stuff as five mile fazul release and this come woke there and realize you're not really altering the faster with that stuff. It's kind of like. Oh well why use it you know. I'm so smart and then come back and it's like oh wait. No this is having a big change on the nervous system. And so i. I really started using last year. Really stirred using lacrosse balls before. If we're gonna do olympic lists that cleans or something or a dump like we would do. We'd superset it rather than sitting there you know twirling your thumbs between sats. Let's get a new us. Lacrosse ball stimulate your feet and if you're not stimulating creating this like a chance to have more sensation you're kind of cana wasting time. I mean you could stand at attention. I used to appeal to power between her. Stand at attention between. That's something you can do to. But i think dancing in between or just talking to someone that can be fine and good but yeah i. That was something big like you. Notice real movement changes the way those cleans right wing up and like most a feed forward from the ground. Up rather than people like yakking with their arms as the sensory. That did seem to change it. And i am so that was that one of the first things as like just just giving sensation before you do these exercises and yeah that bad tactile sensation is is a stage. One competency is is an and then it turns into hand eye coordination right so i mean the the way you feel something in your hand is then going to be the way you start to move your hands in your eyes together and match that up. And boom all of a sudden that becomes shoulder fluctuation right so matt will do these drills in in the course and it's it's crazy like he's got an example of a wanna give away some of the stuff that he does but he's got this example of a guy doing an overhead squadron and again. I'm not an olympic lifting. So he's got it overhead squat in there's limitation in this position so he has some juggle before in that hand. Eye coordination tactile stimulation in the frontal lobe stimulation. It's ridiculous what happens to your shoulder. Affliction ridiculous yeah. I've seen a couple of coaches Keegan with real movement and then Max shank be espousing juggling like just as a general thing and i that there's another thing you could do between right but it just i've always i mean this just fits with almost like i've always been on this quest. I've talked with you about this before but like pickup. Basketball is like the ultimate warmup for dunking i feel like you can't really beat it and right there's an i do want to ask finnity walks and runs here syllable. We'll have that the next question but it's like there's so much going on there from not only a a movement perspective quick impulses in bursts and he'll taps and your feet are working really quickly and you're getting your heart rate up your muscle temperature physiological stuff but there's also like this orchestra of movement in front of you and decisions and the is are going to be going all over the place and the and the head and then distributor and and everything. It's almost like a juggling. It's almost as if you try to do like juggling more. Doing infinity runs or something. I'm level it's just this this complete and you're with your peer group to group pointed at things so i've always just trying to figure out i don't know i. I was trying to get as close as i can to that type of activation multi modal. I mean that's an you know to to go right into infinity walks. That's what it is. It's it's a a crap ton of sensory information coming into your body and that's what it wants to be able to move efficiently and people think it's i got strong. I gotta get mobile. Joints sensory input. That's going to create your fantastic motor. Output and the complexity of the infinity walks the visual stimulation the vestibular the automatic weight. Shift that you have in. The infinity walk the complexity of the movement. And that figure eight all these things. Add up to these sophisticated. Neural networks that our body craves and you know it was designed with learning and emotional disturbances in mind of helping kids with with these types of issues but in reality it helps us move cleaner and when you see somebody doing infinity walk. And then they're doing their skill. You're like whoa. What just happened there. So we'll do it in lecture football practice. We'll do it before individual practice where were were doing wide. Receiver routes right. We'll do it before that we'll put it into a circuit at the end of our workout That i do on the field. I hardly ever go back into the weight. Room to do our in-season training we're always doing stations. Outside one of those stations is always infinity walks. There fell crawl. Dern infinity walks the walk. Jog they'll hold their breath. They'll do all they'll do. Farmers walks All kinds of different things. Yeah so just to clarify too if we get too far down the rabbit hole that they've affinity walk is basically put to like hoops on the ground or two circles. And you're just doing figure eights walking running crawling target that. You're focused on the entire time. So there's there's the training of the convergence of the is in the divergence of the is there's head turn and there's hip turn there's automatic weight shift and there's this this communication between right brain left brain. All these things are going on while you're walking so you have to have that visual fixation on that point. That's probably the most important part that's awesome i. I like Colleague the in thing and it's totally true like the woke thing to say One of which i think is is the nervous system but also is starting to talk about movement as circles and spirals rather than just these linear straight lines. And it's almost like i just like the system of frac dole's or something if you see something on a micro scale also on the macro and i the way i almost view that that infinity run. It's like a macro scale of how we function the human body functions anyway. Which is these circles and spirals and it's just like you're exposing the body through your on that outside of the circle you're probably more super meeting. Then you're on the inside and then you're more prone eating on the inside. It's like you're just working the full like you get to work more of a spectrum. The same way chris does corpus. Does those like diagonal. Extra genie work. It's almost like a three sixty way to work joints in the body. It's it's that subtle weight. Shift that that we don't normally think about but will were emotionally stressed or were struggling with learning in this and we can combine that motion. Like i'm going to be the part of my sons fourth grade curriculum as they have to read. They got twenty minutes a night. I have. I set up a book. And i put to kitchen chairs. He infinity walks in reads at the same time. Because that's his visual focus. And then he's got a complete movement tasks and now he's gotta read so the retention is way better his gaze fixation. Changes is convergence. Divergence works better. And then and then i put a lacrosse stick in his hand so now. He's doing that while he's reading. Snout work were complexity at all the time and again we're making it more sophisticated and it's a fantastic. That lady believe it or not. Joel lives in rochester new york. The lady wrote the book. No really i've emailed. They're like four or five times and she's like we're in the middle of pandemic. I can't talk right now. A lot of clients she goes. But i would love to talk to you about how you're implementing it in in the sports. I think it's unbelievable for that. So i can't wait to sit down with her and really have a great conversation. 'cause it's got tremendous benefit. Yeah oh that's awesome up so local you like a is there like we have the forty yard dash right. Do you have like any asset like this is the size of the circle and you sprint on that or anything like that or is it just more. We don't normally sprint on it. I'll jog on it We'll do breath holds on. it will crawl farmers walk. We haven't really sprinted on it but again the complexity of all the movements that's going on within those two circles serves enough brain. Networks to to kind of correlate to run in fast and doing these things at high speeds you could do it with your arms over your head like franz bosh you can do it with an acrobatic fifty million different ways to do it and You know i. I would imagine that each person would respond differently to each stimulus and But i always put crawling in their crawling. Doing infinity walks is crazy. 'cause you're is gotta be up on. The target will have a coach standing in the middle. He is the target and when we go from there. And it's it's awesome. Do super said that with a football practice do you. You're talking to like conditioning circuit or your power circuit outside of. Do you ever soup that with skills. Like you're gonna do running routes or doing the. Let's awesome like that. Yeah we'll We'll so part of our individual. Let's say. I blow the whistle on individual time. Receivers come to me so we have partners one is doing an infinity jog. The other standing in front is the visual targets. Throwing a football to catch it. Throw it back. Catch it throw back while they're completing than infinity had her So now they're they have to work on their hand eye coordination. they have to work on catching. The football was which we do. It adds complexity to it that sophisticated again. The sophisticated neural networks of crossing over from right brain left brain like that. So it's a real reality. It could be kind of a you. Could you could use as a warm up for potential. Yup yup attention or you can do as a superset with whatever else you're doing. I makes me stuff. Like that. Makes me think about and i when i was talking about and i had this insight of just viewing everything is information also had the inside of the best athletes could just take a little more information than everyone else. 'cause you're half due to pull off some of the stuff that they're doing. It's almost like if you only have. I don't know however many fictional units. I only handle four bits and you can handle nine. You might technique is probably gonna suck or or whatever i'm just not gonna handle or i can't handle this This game situation. 'cause i couldn't intake enough information i mean i'm sure there's different layers of it but i was starting to think about you. Use look awesome just pure athletes and they can do cartwheels and backflips and itself. Taught right and just stuff. That i don't know maybe some genetic to a little bit or like in the dna line. But i was just look at those people. And i think you can just handle more or or something Something's going on their their Their bandwidth is ridiculous for movement. You know what i mean. It's it's unbelievable. But and and that's. That's kinda how i develop. My warm up is is. We want to increase that bandwidth right so we have like ten things that we focus on in our warm up it. It could look different every day. But it's going to have those ten components dot com. Yeah so so. This is like a main question. But i'll probably busy one of the last hour. I wanna get to this. Because they we've been talking a little while so just just quickly What are things that are essential elements in a warm. And you you mentioned the warrant is really for you just as or more important than the actual. I guess we consider me potatoes. It really has so Yeah so. I think breathing ski teachings on my other breath. I think getting your heart rate up. I think some type of vertical bouncing. I call it like pisa electric tapping making sure your heels are hitting the ground creating vibration throughout your body I think you have to try to at some point have structural balance which i do a lot of the good side stuff to create that structural balance before we even train. I think you have to address your reflect system. I think you have to you know address certain angles which square one and six six does that for me. I think you have to address your tactile visual stimulus. And then you're hemispheres of your brain so when you include all those things and i think when i was talking to kristen doing zoom i think i put made it into ten things. Just pick something out of those ten things. There's a warm up and it's not just a warm up it's a. It's a brain stimulation. That's going to make you stronger. Faster react quicker. Smarter all those things because it's all brain drive. It's just i think it. Yeah if we think things as general just this is stimulation like had smarter like you're just you're stimulating the organism. I think there is something to that like. I i think that's Let me ask you about the. He'll tapping real quick. Because that's that's kind of interesting. I hadn't heard much about that. But so just bouncing. 'cause i i like the elastic system and ten is just doing hops up and down. But so the when the heels hit the ground he said it creates a whole body vibration. That is just too good stimulation of the system as well. Yeah so if i'm trying to stimulate the vestibular system in any way when those heels are hitting the ground and creating that vibration you're stimulating the odorless. Oh yeah the fluid. This has got to be bouncing up and down those. Hey ex exactly pen from a bone standpoint. it's creating a electric charge going through your body. So there's a lot of systems out there that were created around bone tapping or vibrations in. I mean if you look at all of all vibration machines. that's what it is. It's it's vibrating. The bone to be able to create this pto electric effect. So i think that bouncing on heels i'll add. We put our tongue between our teeth to stimulate. The mandibular. It's i think those things little things are huge and it relaxes. The body completely relaxes the body. That's that's interesting. I'm going to have to try that right. After this and widow says there's gonna is to get the thing on the ball and get my shoulder going. I'll do. I'll do this and then and then tweeted it and go god. I was rubbing some frequent neural spike. On my hand on my shoulder flexing got better and bouncing up and down on my heels when my tongue between my cheetham my jaw feels great. Yeah i'll try like a quick to- touch in between the the heel-to-heel tapping the tongue is actually. I've heard tongue on the roof of the mouth. You actually putting it between. Here's why i'm doing that. Because there's a natural reflexive like like if you have tension in your jaw. All trigger point is contract. How things going on right so if you put your tongue between your teeth in there some type of vibration going through. The whole mandibular area relaxes because it doesn't want bite your tongue off right in order to get a relaxation of that that whole area of your job. That's what you do. That's how you stimulate that reflex and then your jaws the highest joint on your body so when you release that in feels great. Your hamstrings will feel better too. That's cool. I'm going to do it before i go to bed. I i've been clinton my Jal the too hard lately. I think somebody else. I wake up with the less tension per he can just do it like this for. You can't see. Dan just put his time between his teeth and then uses hand hit the bottom of his jaw. I i'll do it to a little bit. So yeah but i mean that makes sense. Yeah 'cause it has to. It's a forced relaxation. So i hadn't thought on kind of let it slipped my mind. As soon as you're showing me dyke the doing that so okay last thing is you mentioned so that is the vestibular too which is interesting but is there any visual. I mean visit. I'm sure can get complicated. Extremely individual Just from a general perspective. Cicadas or like a different or the with the infinity runs. It's woven into stuff. How you engage individuals system. Show an infiniti walks. It's woven right into the drill itself where you're gonna have to actively switch from right to left and get your head to gaze stabilize so gaze. Stabilization is one of the most important things to teach athlete. Because as you gave stabilize it creates that head stability. Franz bosch talks about it all the time so if he can find ways to keep your head still your body then the threat disappears disappears. You have better movement capabilities right so so gay. Stabilization is very important and being able to focus on something as important getting your peripheral golan and making. Sure that your purview is intact because as we start as threats increase our perfil comes in here if you think about things that we do in the weight room in sprinting. Everything is like this tunnel. Yeah we're not. Training our periphery. Why not let's try. Let's open it up a little bit to see what happens when we start to tunnel in. We wear football helmets and football. That's closing us in to one field can have that. You've got to be able to expand that we'll send them the sorry. I just really quick that. I think i feel like the best athletes. I've watched trained or an an observed in the weight room. They you might call them almost a little lazy in the sense. But i mean but by this i mean they're not gonna get super amped up and tunnel vision it to hit a one. Are you know like they wanna stay open like they want. It's almost like they want to keep options open. As if they're playing is if they have to keep that's at least my take on it with like some of these super smooth. good technicians. good overall athletes. They they seem whereas the guy who's like the bench the the walk on grindr. He's fired up. You know and and everything is focused. Yeah that's an issue. That's okay to have for one rep. Max i guess as long as you can turn it off right like it exactly and most people can't and that that's the whole premise behind. Rpr's you're stuck in this pathetic drive. If you wanna start expanding something you have to reduce it to go better right. So you have to find. Ways to expand your periphery and basically reduced threat of the nervous system. In once you do that you know the whole strength training thing and the whole it becomes a mute point because if you can control your nervous system reduced threat that stuff just takes care of itself. Yeah it's it's definitely. It's a deep deep world with the nervous system. But i i mean i've just even me with just doing something touching my toes between sets and things like that and just using that as a learning perspective to say. Hey am i. Is this train of exercises putting me or ups is putting me in more threat or less. Threat is right body. Is everything opening up or is it starting to close down and just even asking. That question has been good for me. So it's definitely it's definitely good being able to talk to you and expand my own vocabulary on different things that i can do to hopefully further that even more for the athletes. I work with like i. I hear like. I really talk a lot with a dairy in and i listened to all that i love it all but my thing is is your feet and your eyes. Set your posture. If you think about it your your is on the horizon and how they sit and your feet on the ground how they sit dictate. Your posture torsion. You could put on your body if they're incorrectly sitting there so before any of those things that need to happen with arches and all these things you'd better make sure your feet are sitting on the ground correctly and your eyes are functioning correctly because they're going to distort everything from the top down and the bottom up and i think that's been a key to some of the development that i've had with athletes is addressing their feet from a tactile sensation from a reflect sensation. And then expanding their periphery. All of a sudden. You start to see the way they run change. And i didn't tell them y'all you need to rome with high. You need to do it like that. I'm just reducing the threat. And then they start to move designed to move. Yeah i know. I've had that experience at least just on the local level with Back when i was doing the activate. Douglas he'll back in the day. Like just your feet. Do you do something neurological in your a lighter. I'm just walking around here. Like i get this and so the next time i see i'll have to. That's like i've been doing a ton of stuff with the feet. So that's like the last frontier that i got to continue to learn a little bit more about because i get it. I know some people. it's just like what. What can we get going on here that we're not already doing and so i'm excited. Hopefully learn more about that in the future. Absolutely so all right dan. I know it's been a little bit of a late night for both of us. And so hey thank you so much for taking the time. It's a blast talking to you every time and i love a good catching up with you buddy Own that is the end of the line with this train on neurology. The brain the body and performance.

Really Big Telescopes
"Since the dawn of time humans have looked up at the night sky to watch the stars and then nothing happened for hundreds of thousands of years until a guy by the name of galileo galilei pointed a telescope at the stars and saw a bunch of stuff that everyone had missed since then we've been increasing the size of our telescopes so we can see more and more further and further away learn more about the ever increasing size of astronomical telescopes on this episode of everything everywhere daily this episode is sponsored by audible dot com. My audio book recommendation for today is astrophysics for people in a hurry written and narrated by neil degrasse tyson. What does the nature of space and time. How do we fit in the universe. How does the universe within us. There's no better guide through these mind expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and bestselling author. Neil degrasse tyson. But today few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos so tyson brings the universe down to earth succinctly and clearly with sparkling wit and adjustable chapters consumable. Anytime and anywhere near busy day.

It marked a major turning point in human history. This was the moment when astronomy was separated from astrology. Prior to this moment humans were more concerned with grouping together specs of light and following their path in the sky. Then they were with trying to figure out what those specs of light were. In fact most people never really bothered to think that those specs of light might be anything in specs of light. The telescope which was used by galileo was nothing more than what you might find a toy store with a magnification on a par with a decent pair of binoculars with very simple tool he was able to immediately discover things that we all take for granted. But we're never known to humanity beforehand. He discovered that had moons that venus had phases that the moon had mountains that the milky way was made up of stars that saturn had rings and that the sun had sunspots and that it rotated once these discoveries were made public. The race was on to create larger and more powerful telescopes in here. I should explain the basic principle of telescopes. The power of telescope is based on the aperture or the diameter of the lens. The larger the lens the more light can be gathered if you think of photons of light as drops of water streaming down and a telescope is a bucket then the bigger bucket the more photons will be able to capture a telescope with a glass lens. You look through is called a refracting telescope. As a lens gets larger and wider the area of the lens will grow in size corresponding to the square of the radius. Galileo's first astronomical telescope had an aperture of one point five centimeters within ten years the aperture of telescopes had almost tripled in size to three point eight centimeters by the end of the seventeenth century dutch astronomer. Christopher hogan's was using a telescope with an aperture of twenty two centimeters with this he was able to see saturn's largest moon titan. there is a big problem with these telescopes. however as they got larger it became more and more difficult and more and more expensive to create. The lenses glass is heavy. As lenses get larger require longer focal lengths which means larger tubes eventually astronomers had to create small buildings to house their telescopes they also needed very heavy amounts to hold such large and heavy objects in place finally crafting and grinding. Such large lenses at the scale was just really hard to do refracting. Telescopes did increase in size throughout the nineteenth century but eventually they hit limit. The largest refracting astronomical telescope ever made was built in eighteen ninety seven at the observatory in wisconsin. It has an aperture of one hundred four centimeters or forty inches today. It's a museum piece. There was a larger refracting telescope. Made for the one thousand nine hundred great paris exhibition. It had an aperture of one hundred twenty five centimeters however it was designed more as a novelty and not as a scientific device it was pointed horizontally through what looked like an oil pipeline and it had a focal length of fifty seven meters or one hundred and eighty seven feet. It was taken down after the exhibition beyond this one meter threshold. Refracting telescopes are simply too impractical and expensive to build thankfully agai. You might have heard of called. Isaac newton invented another type of telescope back in sixteen sixty eight called a reflecting telescope. Instead of a glass lens. You looked through. It used a large curved mirror at the bottom of the tube. Light would go into the tube. Hit them here. And we'll get focused to another mere back the opening of the tube which would bounce light sideways to an piece. The reflecting telescope had a huge advantage over the refracting telescope in that amir was far easier cheaper and lighter to manufacture than a glass lens by the eighteenth century the largest telescopes. We're all reflecting telescopes and that was where most of the major astronomical research was being done in seventeen eighty five english astronomer. William herschel was using a reflecting telescope with the one hundred centimeter mir. And with this he was able to discover the planet. Uranus as well as saturn's sixth and seventh moons the entire apparatus to hold up the telescope was enormous and looked like an oil rig. The mir's kept getting bigger the hale telescope at the mount wilson observatory in california was a meter and a half in diameter in nineteen nine hundred eight and the hooker telescope. Also at mount wilson was a two and a half meter telescope installed in one thousand nine hundred seventeen going back to my analogy of a telescope as a light bucket. The size of the bucket is the biggest factor in how much light you will collect. Another factor was how long you let the bucket fill up with light the longer you hold the bucket under running water the more water you will collect and the same is true with light up until the late nineteenth century. All telescopes worked astronomer putting their i in peace and looking at the light as it streamed through the telescope in real time a major development was the use of cameras a camera assuming that the telescope could move with the rotation of the earth. Keep it still could collect light for a much longer period of time. What might look like a blurry. Smudge to the naked eye can be a crisp sharp bright image from a camera with long exposure. Astro photography came the way in which all serious astronomy was conducted. One of the first major achievements of astro photography was the discovery of pluto. It's believed that astronomers actually did see pluto before it was known to be a planet however it was so far away and so slow that nobody knew. it was moving pluto's discoverer. Clyde tombaugh discovered the object by comparing photographs and notice that one of the tiny lights moved today. All professional astronomical telescopes are reflecting telescopes with a camera in fact the really big telescopes don't even have pieces just as large glass. Lenses had limited in size so too did large ears as mears became bigger. They became subject to gravity distorting their the surface of the mirrors had to be ground down to an insanely smooth level of well less than a micron by the nineteen eighties. The big single mir had run. Its course they needed new techniques to make larger telescopes one. Such technique was adaptive optics as light comes through. The atmosphere can get blurred. This is why stars appeared twinkle adaptive optics can make thousands of tiny micro adjustments to the mir in real time to compensate for the changes in the light segmented mirrors also allowed for large telescopes rather than make one massive mir you can make many smaller hexagon amir's that fit together to make one big mere. Finally you can make multiple telescopes worked together through what's known as interferometry in nineteen ninety-three the cac. Two telescopes were opened at the time. They were individually the largest telescopes in the world with each telescope. Having mir's with a diameter of ten meters the telescopes used all of the above techniques. I mentioned the main meals are segmented. Use adaptive optics and they can be used together via interferometry as one giant eighty-five meter telescope since the cats were opened almost thirty years ago. The crown of the largest telescope was taken by the grand telescope canarias in the canary islands. Which has a ten point. Four meter mir. i've been able to see both the cac and the grand telescope. Oh up-close on tours and it's well worth the time and effort to see them if you are ever in the area. These are not the last big telescopes progress in the creation of giant mirrors hasn't stopped currently the european extremely large telescope or e. Lt is under construction chile. It will have a thirty nine point. Three meter diameter primary mir which is almost four times the diameter of the current largest telescopes. The lt is expected to help in the search to find earth like planets around other stars is expected as he first light. In two twenty five there are even conceptual plans for something called the oh wwl or the overwhelmingly large telescope. This would have a one hundred meter mir. This is still in the planning stages and building a telescope of this is would be an enormous undertaking however from an engineering perspective. At least it is feasible. All of the biggest telescopes both present and future are all found in only a few places on earth there in the atacama desert in chile on top of monica in hawaii or on the island of la palma in the canary islands. The reason for this is weather when you build something this big. You want to have as many viewing days as possible. Cloud cover prevents you from seeing anything so you need a location. That's either above the clouds. Like on monica or in a place that has no clouds. Like in the atacama while something like the o. Wwl might be possible. Even the large reflecting telescopes are running into problems. Not only do. Massive telescopes caused billions of dollars. But there are cultural issues with building new telescopes in places like monica and we are ultimately limited. The fact that we're on earth with all of our messy atmosphere in a son which ruins observations for half of each day. All of these problems can be solved by going to space in nineteen ninety. The hubble space telescope was launched the space shuttle with a two point. Four meter mirror. It isn't close to being the largest telescope on earth however it has several advantages over ground based telescopes because it's in the vacuum of space. The atmosphere is a non issue. Also it can take very long. Exposures the hubble extreme deep field image was a single image taken over the equivalent of twenty three day or two million second exposure even though the mir is much smaller because it's in space the hulking resolution far better than much larger telescopes on the ground. Just technology is making ground based telescopes larger so too other plans for even larger space telescopes. The james webb telescope is almost complete and it is expected to be launched sometime. In twenty twenty one the web will be different from hubble in several different ways. I it will not orbit around the earth you will be placed in a stable. Gravity point called a lagrange point almost four times the distance from the moon on the hobble. It will not be constantly zipping around the planet every ninety five minutes this will allow for some very long single exposures second. The web will have a far larger electing area. The web's primary amir will be six point five meters with over fifteen times. The light collecting area. Finally the web will have a large sunshield the size of a tennis court to block light from the sun. You may have noticed that six point five meters is far larger than the width of any rocket. The web will basically be folded into the world must elaborate and expensive origami. We'll take a full two weeks for the telescope to slowly unfold in a full month four to get into its final place in space. All of the telescopes. I've mentioned are collecting light in the visible or infrared parts of the spectrum. Once you get into radio astronomy you can have dishes that take up entire volcano caldera's like the cbo telescope and puerto rico and with interferometry. You can have telescopes all over the earth working in unison. Astronomy is a very exciting field right now with the new telescopes which will be coming online in the next few years we should expect discoveries which will rival anything we've seen thus far executive producer of everything everywhere daily is james mcculloch.

#56 The Most Important Supplement for Ketogenic and Carnivore Diets
"You're listening to the tactical fans i melody fearance stereotype chef nutritional therapy practitioner but i'm steve barents twentyone here social operations since the veteran ending certified personal trainer and together we are here to share or experience on the jaguars dum dum forget are disclaimer podcast district general information only and should not be considered investment fees national medical dynastic sports we were not doctors we don't play the internet now let's get ready to choose a bad day all right welcome but the tactical kitchen show i'm your host michael buffer now you're now don't not quite not quite you're not even his brother we talked about that before we did talk about michael buffer her in his brother and his funny story it's a really funny story if you didn't hear it so i can't even remember what podcast episode that let's on so just got bingewatch bingewatch don't watch then you can go binge listen to all of them all in there on the interwebs they're out there now so this is episode fifty six mhm fifty six i'll say it again fifty six yeah were actually doing stuff i feel like we've been doing this for a little while i know i'm still not good at it no oh that's probably true you know we we really enjoy doing it so a fifty six mean when we do a hunter maybe will celebrate look i do enjoy it and they can you know they're not allowed to talk so this is just like an opportunity they turned on a microphone information and talk that's like having firming the best thing is nobody can interrupt you you can like a dry but for the most part nobody could interview that's true i could say whatever ever on one okay so a what are we talking about two day okay so what i thought because it affects me and we always talk about things that affect me silo valley i thought we were talking about it's hot it's summertime in most places probably most of you that listen to us you're in you're in summertime in it's it's more it's warm out there and so i thought we would really talk about electrolytes again in the need for those especially when you go kito incar inborn because it's real important to me well and it's different for for anybody that a like me wasn't athlete a you know for for years a never worried about sodium intake i've never even thought about it i just did things in in my diet was completely different so when you switch from that higher carbohydrate diet and you take in you know all those higher carbohydrates port carbohydrates also are accompanied by a lot of sodium four thirty i'm happy saturday where sodium but sodium nonetheless so when you put all that out in any change how you're you're bodies systems work you gotta change how much sodium you taken yeah and like for instance this morning we land forever on we got new shoes so so i was really fast i thought it'd be really bad i don't know do you guys ever had that happen out there like you get a new pair of running shoes and you're like i'm gonna be so fast now i don't care who you are when you were a kid and he got those brand new pair of shoes the first thing you do is go outside and just run as fast as you could end you're like these shoes made me like they may not last year yeah like flash exactly that's the wrong flash that's what i'm talking about flash he doesn't have his obviously comics like yeah man he probably does have walls around gordon was also fast obviously he was a football football player and there's a big there's a big conversation apparently in the comic world and in that movie really watched the documentary on flash gordon an like what is he a superhero or anything not because he's just a football player right and again the whole he doesn't have power so he can't be a superhero but batman doesn't have powers and he's a superhero so anyway anyway they got new shoes we know they're fast yeah yeah yeah they have new shoes they're fast maybe it was slashed just always had new shoes neighborhoods now it may be time and w i just always liked the movie because melody anderson had the first name melody and now it's like she's like one of the only people i know with my name and the circles all around back to you know so we've gotten issues yes an 'em then we went on a run this morning and it was seventy two percent humidity at eighty two degrees but i always like it when it says but it feels like eighty seven so they'll hotter honor yeah an i you know you go out there and you use wet so much just ridiculous amounts will do you know tobacco up june was really hot here it was you know up over a hundred degrees it was you know we got that it feels like it's a hundred and seven it feels like it's a hundred and ten an we like to work out outside well you know may wasn't that bad it wasn't pretty nice so we went leaking name where it looks like in seventeen ninety saying it was beautiful and then like somebody turn the heat up in june and so we crossed into that were there wasn't too hot and it got really hot and i think and the reason were talking about this is because i fell behind in my sodium intake i did not anticipate how much the heat would take it out of me i also fell behind him i sodium intake an again let's circle back all around my stuff where i had insomnia and all these different things going on in i've gone back and really like i've been detective in my own health journey here in town figured out wow when all this started happening i wasn't i was not consistent in taking in my electrolytes and whether that was some salt when i needed to or even an electrolyte replacement and drink which what we wanna talk about today is how do you know wendy do which of these things because that's what happens to people they start kito they don't know how much salt to take they don't know when they take it and do they taken electrolyte drink in will that you know can they call and good with that so this gets to be a really tricky sticky situation for people you're because it's so self experimental you have to listen to your body yeah and there's people out there that'll do you know keough kito bore carnival or whatever a you know a specific type of way you're eating an they're all different some of them do it and they're not exercising sizing they're just you know they they they're doing this way of eating end they're going to work every day and they have their normal workday and they come home and and that's it they're not exercising and then there's other ones they're trying to be they're trying to be elite athletes in how many fast has gotten shane company fast 'cause they got new shoes right so the difference between how much sodium on those two you know scales of who you are is is very different in again a lot of it goes back to a you know listen to your body how do you feel and those things but if you're if we're gonna talk about if you're an athlete and you're out there pushing yourself and sweating a whole lot right so if you're sedentary and you're not really getting out there and working out a whole lot you might find when just solving you're food tastes that might be all you need is just salt you're food the taste an if you don't have any leg cramps or anything like that when you start kito if you're not getting a lot of water retention or heart lex letters are palpitations or what we might call tax cart taco cardia then you're probably good but if you are working out like we do outside or even in a gym and you're sweating a lot this is where you're gonna have to start playing that you're an you know we can tell you what we did and it might not be exactly what you need to do but maybe it's a good start so a we have a little biomarkers are personal things and we pay attention to to see it for low on any of are electrolytes and again it's mainly sodium is the big one for me i just i make a make a muscle i make myself i girlish now an i hold it really hard in if i could hold that bicep curl really horror and i don't get a cramp them my electrolytes or imbalance what about other biomarkers like you're sleep or lethargy let let's talk about some of those two i do the same thing with with the muscle but i do win my calf i'll i'll point my toes real harm in like flex my calf and if it cranks up then that really i kind of know magnesium an maybe some salt that's usually magnesium detector more than my sodium detector and yet if you figure out what it is where you you know what you think you're behind in 'em for me it's usually a if you're outside for hours on end like a couple of weeks ago when we were building the cover for rv my dad and i were were out ten twelve hours outside working in you cannot you cannot keep up with salt because you're working in you could drink enough water because you're outside working really hard and i'll tell you i got i got smoked yeah because you're sweating semis end you're trying to put in the water in you yeah you just can't keep up fast enough you you you need a salt lick out there somebody just running up to you like a little assistant and go through shorter okay great i'll be back on our okay so let's talk about real quick why you need the salt with the water because a lot of people are like why do we have to put why do we need that why do we need the exhaustion asli add salt well the reason if you look at it let's look like let's peeled back all the crap in let's look at ancestoral people did they have to do this probably know because what they had they ate from a lot of people who are near the water eight from salty foods from the water you know calver fish or whatever but water that people drained just naturally out of out of springs had minerals in in their noses in hungary nada kito train now insecure hot ryan well yeah absolutely are water we drink now is completely different from the water that we used to consume just a hundred two hundred years ago now online buying then mineral water like will will get some of the mineral waters that have the electrolytes electrolytes and all but we do that every glass of water were drinking so it's different from were drinking water out of our tap that's been filtered an it's been bleach before it got the us which is super scary bleached in coordinated yeah well necessary scored the same thing okay great a yes or no it's the same thing more colleague so you know in all that chlorine it depletes you're body mhm i like attaches to your eyes on in your body and pulls it right out so you know there's a lot of things about are water that yes we need it and it's great that we have these sanitary conditions weaken all living in these you know close close quarter conditions where we have clean water but we've also like outsmarted south an we've ruined are water as well we have and we inherently we can't go back the water while they say you can't put the genie back in the bottle you can't you can't push it back in there he doesn't wanna go back in the that teeny tiny space now so it is what it is so you want your water to not make you sick as where it boils down to do that in our society today we have to go through all this water treatment plants and filtration systems and all that stuff so this is why you have to as they modern human in a settlement you're water right so the thing that happens is when we drink water and we don't have those minerals it upsets the balance in your body that hand that's just the high overview of what it does but that's the gist it it upset the balance so what it does is it just pushes electrolytes out you pay them out and then you didn't replace them so it's kind of like you know it's a negative you drink the water you plc electrolytes he didn't put any back in so now where where in a backwards notion i liked it a lot valid now and if you're someone that's working out especially like like we do when we workout mature were outside we sweat a ton so now rose yeah i'm just went totally girl i mean nobody wants to touch me 'em an and that's all electrolytes coming out of your system that's that's what's coming out when you're sweating that's what's coming out of user electrolyte so when you let obviously just if you're not sure sure if were telling you the truth just like you're skin really rl someone else do it having a friend to say hey it's an experiment look my skin out of the taste is holding it salty if you ever get any sweat and you're it's extremely salty so when you're sweating you're sweating out that potassium that sodium chloride urea lactic acid all these little chemicals in your body they keep this balance you know you're also if you're burning fat those fatty acids are being expelled through the sweat too so all these cool things are happening when we sweat were losing a lot though so we've got up put that back in in when you think about your body you're seventy percent water and that's very salty water so you're basically inaction yes and when you taste that sweat you know it's super salty and if you're losing all that solve it just kinda makes then leaving need added back enough now for work for all you people that are afraid of solve for had been been scared a into being afraid of salt by doctors or nutritionist or whoever on the interwebs 'em there that's not justified okay so if you do the research on on why they think salt was bad for us a long time ago it's poor science it was not done very well okay so when one dude right one searcher who is like hey i'm in a steady and solve an when he did louis style well i think what's his name her dog i can't remember he said rats or mice i don't know which ones but road is what he did rodents which are not human just let's let's make sure we understand that but he says i'm like a hundred times more salt than any human would ever consume in one setting an bad things happen to the rat so he said oh salt is bad yeah so so if anybody knows anything about science and those the scientific method that for science and that's the downside horrible a and it's very very similar to what they did for me in cancer and i think it off topic but they did the almost the exact same thing yeah well with chemicals they took the tha or thc what came early chemicals tony yeah they isolated isolated this chemical and me and said at like five hundred times more of a human could consume draft they got cancer and said because his cancer yeah yeah yeah so anyway it's same thing it's done that for science in so you don't have to be afraid of salt because what we found out is that you really on if you are if you're clean if you're kito kito more carnival or a and you take and so it's really hard overdo it so that's really important because if you're still eating processed foods that are laced with sodium its first of all like we said it's bad solved and it's the treated in basically the cook salt they stripped all the minerals out of it and why that's bad is you're just slept with the sodium and none of these other balancing minerals and electrolytes with in the salt salt itself contains all the minerals that you need so when you when you process it for table salt strip all that out which is why a lot of people get way too much sodium it causes a problem it's just strictly an electrolyte imbalance so if you're not eating those foods you're not gonna this is so does when you consume that salt in you have that this is gonna also influence how much glycogen i'm sorry not solve but when you meet carbohydrates influences the glycogen storage and your muscles which that is also so where you hold water mhm it pushes water into the muscles when you take the carbohydrates in the sugar out you don't hold that same amount of glycogen you release a lot of water that's what a lot of people lose a lot of waterway the first few weeks of kito but you don't hold and retain water infield puffy in a swollen or get a demon like you people do and they eat those carbohydrates they also have pour salt in them right so it's really important they know that you lose all of that an that when you take in pour salt it disrupts the balance but now that you're kito or carnival or any need to keep up with that salt balance it's just you know it's just a different whole different way of holding salt in the body you just don't hold it in your muscles with the waterline adding more you're you're making her body way more efficient and that's a key thing is is is when you're when you're on way of eating your body is way more efficient at processing in using sodium yes i rambled idea i just summed it up for you i'm glad he did because i realized that was like a long rambling i don't even know what it's very similar to solve it is very similar to you know when you're when people talk about blockages doors you will have plenty of lacking in storage on akito carnivore diet you're body just doesn't in a different pathway and that's the only difference and you become more a fish in the lawyer in these diets and people always say you can't do kita along to armory can't be carver longterm yes you can because you're body becomes a way more efficient an exercise in those pathways of of using non essential amino acids are processing fat to make glucose to to store glycogen you and this is the saying they were talking about and why were hitting on sodium so hard today is because you're gonna be okay don't be afraid of saw you could absolutely that's what i was gonna say i totally locked it a second ago but we were talking about how much salt we we wanna talk about how you can actually process how much so you're kidneys can actually handle about a nearly a pound and a half assault today so when people are scared of solving their food it's like now you can actually if you're kito there's no danger in going to high grade is now to high knock yourself out and so how so what do we do what what do we do to get that saw we don't just sell their food a we we do that but also the first thing in the morning we do is we take in salt and i liked be the course granulated i don't like the find so it it it bothers my power i guess you could say oh no sense and makes me feel weird 'em so i just do the the larvae granules in put a i would say maybe half a teaspoon to a teaspoon i think yeah in the palm of my hand and i just throw my mouth just my pills i just checked check it with water districts with water is rough but yeah so that's basically what i do take about a quarter teaspoon of i and i am fine with the granulated salt i'll do that and then chase it with about sixteen ounces of water in the morning just to get my water if you push water first thing in the morning without doing the salt anger kito you're gonna just he like crazy yeah so so salt water first thing that'll be system going because what happens is then you're gonna hold water in the places where you need to be hydrated because you can absolutely drink way too much water still be dehydrated you can in somebody in this room has done that so it's funny i've seen it as an as an instructor at the combat control school back in the day we had students it would do this all the time they would get out in the field in the summer and it'd be really hot and the first two days are are really hardly pushing really hard they don't sleep a they're moving a lot and by the end of those two days what happened was really hot is people don't feel like eating and they drink a lot of water in by the end of those two days we keep hammering on and push the water they drink the water and they flush all their electrolytes and will find him like curled up in a ball and just cramps cramps grant in in so when we're talking about signs that you need salt cramping heart palpitations that's usually more of it electrolyte imbalance weird like you need some potassium along with their sodium in this is such a delicate balance when all of these electrolytes so the salt potassium magnesium which is a mineral which also playing into the cramping but when you're sweating and and doing all that and drinking so much water you're just way off balance you will end up in a curl that ball also one big crap and so so i i you know i don't know the public a year ago i started to really push the water first thing in the morning and i was drinking man probably about forty inches of water i did not man first thing in the morning maybe more an i wasn't pushing enough salt an i got a heart arrhythmia my heart was skipping a beat and being weird and they're being very irregular an that went on for couple of weeks before we finally figured out what it was and you know that i backed off on the water industry crease us all and man just you know back in the first thing that you're you're doing that you're thinking as its nest carnivore diet and that is absolutely will happen people will go kito or carnivores and don't blame it on the diet not knowing that they've just upset their electrolyte imbalance right in that you know that's it's so important because so many weird things can happen to you and you'll think something terrible is wrong and it really it's it is something a little scaring you gotta be you know you gotta have those electrolytes her bad things can happen but you'll have a heart arrhythmia like you did or you'll all of a sudden you'll be so tired in the afternoon you just can't you can't function right and you'll think this kito diet this carnivore diet sucks i have no energy is horrible and we hear not alive we do you know in the in the past i would say you know six months we've known to people's that went to the hospital and were put in the eyes of you for for heart arrhythmia and again the the the they keep it for a couple of days and they send them home and tell them nothing wrong with them right and so we find out usually it was just they were drinking a lot of water and balancing they're like they're like you know and and it's it's interesting and we don't ever find out after the fact and we find out later and then we tell them the whole hey it's it's just electrolytes you just need to do this and they do it and they get better but they're in the hospital in youth for two or three days in the hospital cannot figure out what's wrong with him they send them home and saying nothing's wrong earhart that's what's amazing it it it blows your mind but that's the way it is number so signed a scientifically advanced the week and replace hearts and lungs and knees and hips but we can't figure out an electrolyte imbalance and it's pretty easy it's a pretty easy fix because you can he couldn't drink an electrolyte replacement drink on we really liked the ultimate we do not get anything from them for saying that it's just i've looked at a lot of different electrolyte replacement drinks an i can't find that don't have junkin all right except for this one it's it's it is flavored man sweetened with stevia i mean it's tasty it's good it is the only drawback to doing electrolyte drinks and i looked at a lot of them is they all are very low in sodium right there they're nice people probably are sitting too much saw well as most people were all processed yeah voiding seldom so i know i think ultimately like two hundred and fifty mark graham milligram strange milligrams i dunno it never ends milligrams 'em and that's not very much salt i mean that's that's not hardly any at all okay so let's talk about how much salt we need a day so if you're in again were talking about an athlete if you're if you're not an athlete and not pushing shop extremely hard you might you need less and now we talk about about five grams of sodium in how do you figure that out how much sodium is that well we figured it out it's about twelve grams of salt right because if you're getting like okay let's say pink himalayan salt or the redmond's real salt 'em which is mind here in the u s i really like it and i mean we started using that and i really like it also we do not get anything from them though were saying that i do products really like it 'em those you know if you were to weigh them out like twelve maybe fourteen grams i don't know you can look and see how much sodium we figure all this out before with pink inland salt seventeen kimberly insult we wait out fourteen grams of the salt by weight and that was five grams of sodium because it contains like eighty two or more trace minerals and as well as sodium again that's why you don't realize how much salt that is until you wait out on the scale and you see it and you're like wow that's a loss all it is quite a bit and that scares most people at first but i mean that's the kind of the minimum that we go 'em because it's on a day like this when i'm gonna do to workouts and i'm already sweating like a i don't even know what this morning then i already had a lot of salt today and when i go to do another workout i will also salt before i'll have i'll have like a quarter teaspoon of salt before and probably a quarter teaspoon or more after depending on how much i sweat and it's just kind of like you start figuring out what your body needs men also another thing for me is the lack of being able to fall asleep at insomnia issue that i was having with going to sleep i kind of look at it and say you know it was a cluster of things it's i'm sure it's never just one thing 'cause i'm never just doing one thing but salt had to be a big component of it because as soon as i started really focusing on getting my electrolytes balanced i started sleeping better and that makes total sense it does an end if you're you're an athlete you know you half asleep while to recover a you happy get that in or you're just you're you're gonna eventually crashed if we don't get quality asleep to repair and recover now if if you're also athletes say you're bike riding and you're doing a hundred mile bike ride which is gonna take you know five six hours depending depending on you're pays a new need to be taken in that so i recommend every hour checking in at least about a public half of they teaspoon in some water every hour along with other electrolytes right so what i started doing as on having workout days which you're pretty much all of them all now them in this time if you're working out outside it's hot weather you do at eight o'clock in the morning or for the afternoon it taught man that the heat and the humidity just add a whole other element to the workout and make it super hard this is why people go like the colorado over the summer to to transfer triathlons and marathon because it's so it's so nice there there's no humidity out there as a cool yeah wouldn't go down go there five that elevations out soon out takes about two to three weeks to adjust to altitude for sure we tried running when we went there last time and i was like this is so bad so hard this is awful but we're not we'd only been there for a few days in when the weather's great but yeah that heat and humidity just out a whole other element to being outside and working out like that so i've been using the salt plus and electrolyte drink every day when i'm i'm doing twice a day with the with the electrolyte replacement plus all the salt and when we say fourteen grams if you wanna get a good picture of what that is that's a heaping tablespoon basically it's it's a lot it's quite a bit it's more than most people would be comfortable with it at first so you know how do you start getting adjusted to this will you can gradually increase you're salt intake you're gonna have to measure you're gonna have to attract a see what makes you feel the best yeah it'll only you could do it for for people who are new or even and if you're because it's happened to me even if you've been doing this for four years like us you have that period of time and afternoon where you just feel like i needed a nap man i need a nap and if you didn't get adequate sleep they're not before obviously you're just maybe ongoing on lack of sleep but if you're gonna sleep then it could be gesture electrolyte imbalance moment if you take a good pinch of salt with some water it's like seriously you wake up and the reason why because that potassium and sodium are what gives the sell its ability to communicate with each other and that's why when you don't have that balance yourselves her like i'm taking a break runs so tired they're not just and they don't perform ultimately no i now have the right communication right apparatus and so well what i used to do back when i travel and was taken every hour taken edu or eight any type of dream that i had army that would take with me and that was you're energy burs now you're switching so if you think about this you're switching going from that sugar based a you know supplement going to just using what your body wants which is sold in the water it's like magic magic and it's it's it's just common sense because we crave solved but what's sad how many people will say i love salty food you know and they wanna put salt on it but their doctor told him no you have to watch her sodium and so they're like i've he's mrs dash sun saturday and substitutes and they're just like miserable because their food tastes terrible an there's a reason why the salt tastes so good to us are body needs it it's so crucial well what's gonna happen when you when you switch from being you know hitting the sugar sugar crap five every hour when you do alone endurance of a van and switch the salt water is you're recovery is going to be ten times greater because what's gonna happen is you're gonna finish that finished that long event when you're gonna feel good you're not gonna crash 'cause that's what happened to the sheer athlete is once they're done pushing himself as hard as they can and they're done with it and they stop they can't walk around like they follower and they just lay on the ground in there rioting ending it so i guess like tipping over goat selling goes without a doubt be gone well you know if you think about it like sugar is in no way healing to the body though it had no function other than just like hey quick burst and energy and then put that on you that it's that it's primary you know function where you're getting a boost it's gonna give it a little bit of both so you're gonna feel a little better with a short amount of time but again if not giving your body what it needs just giving you this this this fake you know kind of boost that you did you don't need like a jump color like a jolt cola so we sell so we're watching stranger things and they were drinking a jolt cola like oh i remember joel cola i know that we are timeframe eighty five yeah well it's way worse monsters and rounding out in their way worse things and whatever but okay so back to the sugar the sugar has no healing properties to it the law is necessary it's just common sense sold is needed unnecessary and crucial marcel communication salt and potassium so if you have to have that to survive in you don't need sugar and carbs to survive that you know i just kinda makes mhm i don't know i just like i just like to talk about it from commonsense perspective so so it's a lot about sodium and electrolytes salt on an it's extremely important we can't we just can't emphasize it enough other thing we won't talk about today was thee thirty day carnivora challenge i don't know why i came up with this cockamamie idea well people love this is why people love challenges and they love something set in a timeframe that they can attack and they know where you in the know when it's over yes where humans were building because i set it up for myself and then i asked you if you wanna do and then last night outlets like crap so so what does that mean if you do you know you you know we do talk about it we knew mostly carnivores but what do we do that really are considered corner or is we put heavy cream and are coffee from one of them we have a dessert which is a heavy cream in it's so good to cow dessert yeah it's whipped cream next whiz whiz rocket cow and since cbs an then we put it on top of some friends and blueberries and i put a little peanut butter in a piece of dark chocolate on it and it's really good yeah so it's really good but it's not carnivores not an avid eating the crap out of that we we usually we do it who will usually it's a weekend thing and then everyone every so often it turns into just in every night day it's turned into the summer things but here's what here's what it it doesn't do it doesn't make me feel bad and it doesn't make me is kito drain out today from this way i'll just i'll just let it go thinking that any may be making it louder what what the dessert doesn't do it it it doesn't make me gain weight come on law i don't get it out here 'em it doesn't make me gain weight doesn't make me feel bad so that's kind of the the you know i it doesn't bother me and negatively so i just kind of don't worry about it but so we're gonna cut it out running cut out the dessert were gonna cut out the cream in the coffee drinking black coffee right now take a black hawk doesn't bother me but i'm really surprised that you're doing hey i've spent plenty of time drinking black coffee i know that you didn't you had to this is like actually someone younger had best coffee i've ever had was in a bunker outside of syria though with these serbian people who gave me coffee in a little bowl and it was black and i was thinking i can't drink this but i but i drink and then like a week later i had turkish coffee down in a restaurant and syria able like the first time in my life i feel like i haven't really lives but anyway so so i had the black alvie i'm just you know i'm a squishy lazy human stuff on my coffee so so i came up with this idea because i'm doing as a string plan i wrote myself i plan you don't plan anything so i wrote myself out a six week a six sweet long strength plan because i wanna get stronger in now i'm like well if i'm doing that maybe i need to also cut out this whipped cream thing because here's the thing it's really good but it's not adding anything positive new my life so i started getting a little bit of joint inflammation in my fingers and i just wondered if it was the over consumption of heavy cream which it could be if we were able to still get wrong i'm pasteurized heavy cream i'd probably be cool with it but census this pasteurized and it kind of takes all the goodness out of it yeah i really don't feel like it's adding anything of value except for sent that to my diet and i get that fat from other sources right on more beneficial sources with more vitamins and nutrients and so i came up with this idea of a thirty day no dairy carnivora challenge and when i say no dairy i really just mean all that crappy he whipped cream i would you vote that we don't have any well there's a little bit of dairy in the better but it's really not a lot and i don't put crap tons of butter on my sued because the stakes are usually really fatty the hamburger meat usually really fatty and so i don't really need a lot of extra but the whip cream was just like overkill on the fat probably so i'm doing a challenge for myself and i thought i drag sent a new people along with me just for the fun because misery loves company where where is an absolutely dead and we didn't have it last night 'em even though somebody was like or sunday no how why you know here's the deal it's not you know i'm not training for triathlons anymore i don't you know i don't i don't go do five k is all the time i'm not doing big event so so when you're just trying to stay in shape which i feel like i mean i feel like i am especially the last couple of months feels like my testosterone levels have increased in my main my belly fat has just gotten it then doubt if its own back and describe it but i thought maybe doing this you know go ahead and in cutting out dairy completely might help you know be almost like a cutting dialectic kinda right trotta code they'll ask that last blair upset that you have on you're adams right so i'm never done a cutting diet i've done a crappy low calorie low fat nineteen ninety style start herself diet but the which is what according to his been forever is a starving yourself die right in so i i thought this way as well that if we just cut out that one thing which is you know the idea is that if you eat a whole lot of extra fat the fat cells they're not gonna shrink they're gonna stay kind of like full an if you cut out some of the fat and increase you protein the idea is that you're fat cells can kind of shrink down well empty will see what happens there so many different ways of doing that stuff in so many different people have different techniques in different successes and and and that's why we say be very careful of listen to people on instagram that they look super cut end they look like they're really in shape because getting really kinda like that you're body does not wanna be like that that's totally goes against what you're body one my body when he whipped cream well you're body one just comfortable air a fat over itself that's that's normal okay so anytime you see someone that has his these cut ads they've done something to get there and that either they taken stimulants so they could work out really hard in expend energy or dave starve themselves and they take a you know of anything that the curbs hunger to get that way do you think everybody that you know i don't just just naturally had that there are people who have ads and it's just like they don't work hard right i don't think they were hard but it's just come easy sedan correct there are people out there that we don't like people after more i think that's her body style there darter bizarre and they do have a lot of muscle the muscles and other people and that those those people are out there but not everyone is like that and i'm not i'm not like that i i i have done all this athletic stuff forever and i've really never had like defined apps and that's you know when i could run twelve miles easy at a clip and then go workout and just do whatever i wanted i never had it and that was all dilated for me personally that was all i was a high carber i was never gonna have abso matter what i did and i didn't understand died enough to figure that out well i think it's a good thirty thirty days i said two weeks originally and then you looked at me and said i think you need to start your day i don't really know how to take that was that like no you need thirty days of no dairy or was it now you know it takes thirty days thirty days rooney diet things you're going to do the test test you gotta do it for at least three days and i know that any workout program you're gonna do you do it from six to eight weeks so that's just my personal trainer opinion yeah so i am deciding to do the thirty days today was the first day life not actually with the first night anes on working and just see what happens okay all right well that wraps it up a we appreciate you guys listening go out there that and prosper

Alright i am here with tom roscoe. Tom has been in one camper or another for the last twenty five years ten years ago. He stepped out of the rat race and got serious about living small after multiple vehicles. That weren't just right. He decided to make his own. A year of labor and a pile of cash resulted in a tiny homemade from a medium duty ambulance formerly owned by yellowstone national park. This go anywhere tiny home now. It's the bill for a fulltime life of fun and adventure. Tom roscoe welcome to the show. Thank you reason. It's great to be here. Yeah it's great to have you. And i just want to say congratulations on such a beautiful conversion such a such a cool rag. I appreciate that. Thank you So i was hoping you could take me back to You know what you're talking about in your bio ten years ago getting serious about living small. What was your thought process. And it sounds like that's the ambulance. Wasn't your first kind of your first rodeo. So maybe take me back does and tell. Tell your story a little bit. Yeah no problem. I had a pretty big life. Change out a divorce and At first i was kinda just doing the normal go into work and doing the nine to five and then i got the house in the divorce. Tonight i realized that i started moving into the living room and then out of the bedroom and then i started using a smaller space in that house. That i That i would need. And i realized that i don't need much space and i need to make some changes so that i rented out the house moved into a smaller space. Always had campers and just gonna be in to me eventually moving into that camper and then i had several of them I've had a sports mobile and a chinook and and they're all really close but not right or one reason or another and so i ended up I like to say is i. I fixed him up. And then i sell them for a loss. Every time i did about every two or three years trying to figure out what. I wanted and After going through several of them Finally cited like you said it's time to make my own and And get the things. I wanted in their made a list of the things that i really wanted to have and then basically when i built one i Went down that list lender so on that. So is that list of things that you wanted to have. did they. Kind of make the ambulance an ideal starting point Sort of I i wasn't sure which platform i was going to use. I wanted something larger. I went over weight on my other. Campers i wanted a medium your platform to work with so that got me to to medium. You're looking at zone. Practically looked at the s Military truck as well said it was a rustic for me and what happened was i was with a friend Picked up in her sprinter van by token they showed up in this chassis kodiak. Forty five hundred in. We're writing in that truck back to house and i'm looking at is this is great. It's a it's a heavy duty truck but it's of like a pickup inside. It's both worlds. So then i started looking for those trucks and then stumbled across the fact that they have medium or a boxer building box in an ambulance. That goes chassis. So from that day on pretty much focused on the medium duty. And i wanted to four wheel drives to find this one so this thing is was our is four wheel drive see really can go on any roads and i mean looking at pictures of it. It looks like it's pretty high off the ground like it's it's a beast it is it's It gets a lot of attention and i wanted it to be a little bit smaller but So it came with do a wheels. It did come with four wheel drive. I didn't have to do any conversion or or anything like that. But i wanted to have the the single they call him super singles or better off road getting in the sand stuff like that and unfortunately these tires are forty inches tall and they are the smallest tires that i could get. That could handle the weight this truck weighs about. It's red at it's limit of seventeen thousand five hundred pounds. Wow yep so having those smallest tires that can take the weight. Does that make them more. Prone to blow out sir. What is the disadvantage there. So there's a his own ongoing debate it'll probably get people fired up but with the dual lease you can get rock stuck in between them in the back. Okay and if you pull out onto the highway one of those rocks can fly out and it could kill somebody so you. It doesn't happen very often. But i have had and so you have to get a strap or a hammer something yet. The knocked that rock out but mostly you just have to check every single time you go off road you have to stop and you have to check iraq's in your in your tires the other thing is you can't air down because usually those dooley's are made to be They're their roy tires. And you do find somewhere you can't you can't go too low because the insides will actually rub. The two tires will rub on each other and eventually where the out. Okay and then you get better Flotation and traction. I think especially upfront. A bigger meteor tire up there rather than a a little Single and you can get a better ride to because you can get You can let some air out and Air down for the rough roads and stuff. You can't do that so did you. Actually change switched to not duly in the back. You have singled tires in the back. Yes it's called doing. A super single conversion actually had to make had to have wheels made. And then you get the tires. I've actually I should also say. I've had some nightmare issues with these wheels and tires combination. It looks like After putting twenty five thousand miles on them and it can them off many times by myself and changing They're basically not around. And so i'm just of waiting slim to where it just makes for a little bit of a rough ride. I'll pat. i've had them balanced. Yeah so looking through your project page. I was immediately struck by the photos of the electrical panel and all the wiring. That was already in the ambulance. And it it kind of made my head spin Do you have a background in. Like electro engineering Or is it. Is it figure out. Because i just look at this tangled mass of wires. And i'm just like well. It's not really a tangled. Mess is actually an organized mass of wires. But still it's like. Oh my gosh. Where do you even begin like. I doubt this thing came with a user's manual to say like these wires. Control this thing and those wires control that thing right well it it is so you wanna be mechanical for sure and you wanna be patient for me. Was it was a big puzzle. They are marked and they You can't get documentation if the ambulance is newer. I got documentation in two different ways. I called the. It's a wheeled coach. That's you made the box. And i called them and they sent me the the electrical build sheet and so every single wire has a identifier code on it. And then you can't always tell exactly where it goes or what it does but you can find that why or somewhere else and then use it. I also when i was pulling the walls apart. I found another Wire code sheet buried in one of the walls. That was kinda cool. that's cool. Yes the wiring. It's it's kind of a good thing in a bad thing. It's it's good in fact that Wires are everywhere. And i didn't have to run any new wires. I still have a lot of the Old wires you and i left extra. Just i add things that i wanted to later but the bad part is just the panel the board that's in my electrical it there. I mean there must be fifty little. Led lights on there so the electrical systems can have a pretty good dose loader parasitic draw so and i have a good battery system to keep up with against and maybe you could take me through the systems in the ambulance because it looks like i definitely saw you put in fresh and gray water tanks but yeah. Why don't we start since we're talking wiring Do you have solar panels batteries. What he running there. Okay so I went with victory on energy. Really impressed with that company. It's higher end stuff. It's expensive but to me totally worth so. I have a trend energy controller in battery disconnect in the safety and i have the multi plus three thousand invert from them and then i have two two hundred amp hour lithium batteries I think. I need to get one more. I think it's a little bit low and then i have Thirteen hundred watts of solar on the roof might theory there is. I don't really need that much. But i don't wanna tilt panels and i don't want to take them off and drag him into the sun so my idea was just to basically put his minneap there as i could. Because they're they're relatively cheap especially compared to all the other components. Let's see i think that's about it just the The basic saturday miss. Anything is the I would. I'm imagining or i'm assuming that the ambulance is all wired wired for twelve volts. Yeah it is yes. Everything's twelve volt and so you have You know some one twenty available or you. Completely twelve volt. Oh no sorry of the multi. Plus invert her. Okay that's run. I had the one ten. There was some in the ambulance. Already think there. I have to Circuit breakers so each side has Fifty amp service. So i have outlets nice. You have a water heater. That is a as a backup. It runs on one. And then i have the mini split. Which is one ten so okay yeah and you. So you're able to be off grid in this thing all year round And you can run like the mini split. yes i'm running at right now. It's it's only about eighty degrees outside right now but Yeah just close it up so it quieter in here for this i. I have a instagram post. Where i ran all day. I think it was ninety. Five degrees in near boise and the batteries did keep well. The solar in the battery skept up. It works pretty well. Like i said i have four hundred hours of battery i six hundred would be better. Maybe even eight i. I will upgrade that here in the future. Are you able to charge the batteries off of the the alternator. Yes that's victor on has a little smart box where you bring in the wire from the or the The output of the alternator into the little box and then you hook up the batteries to the other side. then it's really quite clever. I noticed that. If i get a little bit of solar let some of the alternator power come through but if i have one hundred thousand watts going in it will. It won't kick on the altar at all and another good thing about the ambulance is. This loan came with a dual alternators. And i think they're hundred forty amp each so yet does quite well. If i don't have any drive in charge because i'm assuming that when it was an ambulance there was not solar so it needed to generate all the power needed to run whatever medical lifesaving systems and electronics were onboard correct. Yes they What they do with these well at least with one shouldn't say all that trouble before but What they did with this ambulance is just a couple batteries to standard car. Batteries and dan is just running the whole time anytime they're using it and so the alternators are are supplying everything. They need cannon. Well let's talk about other off grid systems How do you. How do you collect and store and use water in the ambulance so collection is i mean the standard ways. You know friend's house. I just got some at the gas station. The other day. I know nova secret faucet. Here in moab arc let that out but I also set up a system where the water can come through a uv filter like a standard house uv. So no worries about slow can bring it in pretty fast and then it goes through three stage filter system so i have a. I bought two pumps exactly the same. One of them is the main pump for the vehicle. I have a second pump. That i can take down to a stream and just run it on twelve volt and basically fill up my tanks from the stream or s. I wouldn't do it from upon but yeah good freshwater source and i've done that tanks and so it goes through the filter and then three three par particularly filters yes it goes through the uv and then it goes through a fifty micron and then it gets a five micron and then Just charcoal for drinking and so then after that it goes into some kind of holding tank. Yes everything gets cleaned before it goes into the fresh water tank. And because i'm full time. You know. I i use the freshwater enough to where it sits. It's i've heard that some people might get some mold or something like that in their tank but minds run through fast enough yeah And then i'm assuming you have a shower kitchen. Also plumbing in there would he would. He have for Fyodor inside okay. Keep going here. So yes. I have a two water tanks. Total of seventy gallons and then there's a water heater. It's an ice her. That runs the engine. Coolant that water. So anytime i drive i get our hot. That'll last a couple of days if you're mild and then there's a backup One ten bolt Switch i can flip to heat up that water sitting in a place for more than a couple of days so hot and cold water. I have a little tiny bathroom sink. And i have a kitchen sink with A separate little raking faucet. And let's see a composting toilet. And i think that about covers it. I get shower. There's a shower in the pass through so Wasted space there. Hopefully in that covers plumbing. What i miss. Oh great thank well yeah food. Where does the water go when you use it. So i have about thirty five gallon tank and yeah i just have rural. Oklahoma was up and send it to a tree down the road there. mary goal. now. I interviewed Someone i don't know that her episode has gone live yet but she's actually developed in her tiny house a system where she can filter back her gray water back into the freshwater. Tank a series of series of filters. Did you think about doing something like that I actually listened to the episode is really good. Appreciate that one And so it sounds great. My concern is cleaning those nightmares. About how the filters get gummed up fast and tough to clean if You know someone's got that worked out. I would be very interested because that would just be. I mean we last all year. Would you offer them. Yeah no it. It really piqued my interests. Also because you know for obvious reasons when travelling but a big challenge for movable tiny houses tiny houses on wheels is is oftentimes Water you know when you park in the city or somewhere like that. That's oftentimes a big barrier to doing it from the legal side. So if you could basically say. I'm bringing this thing. I'm going to park it here. It's not going to get hooked up to or discharge any grey water or sewage water. That's a it's a. It's a really cool idea and i. I'm glad you heard that episode the tomato box that nato box. Yeah no that sounds. That sounds wonderful. I know there was a guy. I think he was tiny. Solar was his company in. I think that he was doing it a couple years ago and he was talking a little bit about the filters getting pretty fucked up in a and snow. I don't know. I think that might be a youtube channel. Where they're doing it. But then the sky had a he had quite the Cleaning schedule or his mery water. So that's what concerns me if If there's a way around that i would. Yeah i'd be really curious those kind of things that i'd like to try. Yeah exactly. I'd like to tell you a little bit more about tiny house engage. Tiny house engaged members are also able to listen.

That website is the tiny house dot net slash engage so we got power and water and and i guess the the mini split provides heat and cooling. You need it it does. It has a heater And then there are a couple other forms of heat. I just put in a twelve volt some heated floor mats which they don't use much power. They're all thermostat so they just come on. When it gets burst sixty degrees. I said it would ever want or So that's nice on the cold mornings. I'm barefoot. Most of the time. And then i have the little s are Set the d. Two s walker. I think it's called Air heater yet. Do any heating off of your engine like kind of like the way your water or No i i really don't have to start the engine at all with the little air heater. Things are amazing They're spending but they're crazy efficient and You know the heat dollhouse with though issues ball. That's amazing you usually think of like forced hot air as as a less efficient way to heat a space. Yeah these these have been out a while in the marine industry for sure and and a lot of people are putting them in there. Rv's now for a while you know. This is the size of a breadbox It's probably a thousand fifteen hundred bucks but All you do is put it inside. You have to put it. Your your exhaust out in your intake comes in from outside to burn and just recirculated air inside and the wonderful thing about them. Is that unlike. The old suburban earnest's that were in rv's and maybe still are. I hope not. They come on full blast they go for you know five minutes at the house up to eighty degrees and then they kick off and then house goes down to about sixty five and then they blast on. Read this little this little diesel air heaters what they do the fan slows way down. So you don't even know it's running but it just maintain really nice either nice. Yeah i i was actually. I'm glad you said diesel. I was like this couldn't be electric and efficient. Well many splits doing okay. Tread heat part of it too much yet. Yeah so that's that is such a big benefit of being in a vehicle. Where you have that you have the alternators you've got a tankful of diesel and you've got the coolant that you have so many ways you can pull heat off of the engine for your water. You can use the diesel for cabin heater. You can Charge your batteries I can see can really see the appeal of an ambulance or another kind of medium duty vehicle like that. I haven't really thought about that. I guess a tiny house You're you're missing out on a few of those options so it is. It is gather there are many options to yeah itchy. Dili's going and it seems so are you. Do you have propane at all or have you managed to kind of avoid propane propane at all. And what are you cooking with. Oh i have an induction cook talk so electric yeah worked. They worked great. I i read reviews before i got it. I was a little worried about it. Said that you couldn't you know similar soup or something like that. You couldn't turn it down. But i i see the opposite. It's works really well and it doesn't. It's not hot. You know you cook your lunch in the middle of the day in the summer and it doesn't stay hot or heat up the house you know right. Yeah those are those are cool. I you know there are so many things like that. That if i were to do another tiny house i would be all over i. I'm very reliant on propane in my tiny house. And i would like to not be relying on propane as much. It was like in with your background in the podcast. You'll be doing another tiny house here. Yeah you know we were talking before the show a little bit and and you know with cove it happening. I think everybody's into maybe travel a little bit and van or a school bus or ambulance or something like that. Just that's where my interests are right now in terms of my next bill but So that's it. It's good to have you on the show for for that. For that reason if anything gets an info this really cool buses out there that's for sure. Yep yep i think there are a little too necessarily too big but maybe they are a little too big and a little bit. Too conspicuous right. They're they're limiting. This thing is Twenty three feet long bumper to bumper. And it's a little bigger than i even wanted. I don't i don't find it too much of a problem. I cannot fit in a regular parking space though. yeah Okay eight feet wide. What kind of what kind of gas. Mileage d get so. It's funny that everybody asked that. And i've been tracking it since the day. I got this thing i've put. Oh twenty five thousand miles on it. And i'm averaging twelve miles per gallon and that's with At city that's four wheel drive low back in the hills dirt roads highway but then there's one caveat i would say i'm that guy who drives fifty five miles an hour down the road and everybody hates sorry about i saw the i saw that you have Like speed limit fifty five sign on the back. Yeah yeah and i have. The i left the The emergency stripes back there too. So i'm i'm hoping that everybody thinks. Oh they're taking grandma to the hospital. Let's give him some space. Yeah yeah yeah. I get some respect. So it's i mean. It's certainly not like a stealth camper though. So have you had any trouble. You know where. Where are you usually staying when you're in it. are you like going to. Rv parks and campgrounds. Are you like in the back country. Kind of doing the overlander staff or you know. Where are you staying in this thing. Yes i'm i'm ninety nine percent in the back country in fact last year i only paid for one campground and that was six dollars and that was because it was at the bottom of a really good bike trail it started and ended its oil and no one else was there because it was late in the season but Nice no. i couldn't afford to do the campgrounds. It's it's crazy expensive. And i just don't understand that. So you know with the composting toilet and the assistant They allow me to go where i want. And and that's the idea with the four wheel drive as well is. I find that you just find a little bit of an obstacle and get just a little bit further out than everybody else and in we can get some peace and quiet out there nice. Have you ever Ever gotten stuck. No i haven't and i'm terrified jew because You know armor. John in his pickup is not gonna pull me out. It's gonna be quite you're deal. Yeah you're gonna need firm. John and a tractor. Yes very big. Try a road grader. Maybe yeah yes some. I pushed it a little bit. When i have other big trucks with me and i live on the beaches in the sand and i've been places i shouldn't have been for the most part i try to be pretty conservative and drive is more to get a out of a bad situation and i use the ground clearance to an is low range a lot to get. You know to get back in there but i don't push it. I mean it's if i roll this thanksgiving day so yeah oh man. I wasn't even. I wasn't even going there. I was even thinking about the possibility of rolling it. Yikes i've i've had my other campers in some situations where i really shouldn't have been haven't ruled one. It seems like it's probably pretty bottom heavy with with the truck bed essentially down there. Yeah i think so. It should be an did try to you. Know the water tanks sitting on the floor. They're not underneath though wanted them inside. Yeah gray tanks. The only thing. That's really a pie. Is the fridge. Should be okay. I would hope so but you know as soon as you get just a little bit off camera. You start leaning over gets her. We a bad day. How big is the is the fuel tank. Like how much. How much diesel do you have to work with. That's kind of funny that there's actually a sticker on the outside of the tank that says fifty three gallons but i learned Two years ago that. It's really forty two because i ran dry and fortunately out here in the desert. I didn't think i was close. Obviously but Yeah it's about forty two gallons. I haven't been bishops plan to Get some more weight up fronts. I think i'm gonna build saddle tanks a front under my steps. That's where the batteries. Norman ago and then get rid of that route fuel tank and that way i can transfer some weight upfront. And i'll i'll get more capacity project list. How more capacity to put stuff in the in the camper itself. No more fuel capacity few capacity. Okay right and i wanna get a. I want to get some more weight on the front rather than the back of the truck again. I had a little bit better. Okay can you so with all these systems that you've you've talked about you know the dual dual freshwater tank's and the filtration system and just all these various appliances and things It seems like it's a bit of a jigsaw puzzle to kind of fit them all in elegantly. So could you take me through. Maybe what your design processes like when you're when you're working on one of these and like how much does that change as you build it or do you like plan it all out and then bill you know i mean well. That's such a hard question you can tell by my answer there So i did make a sketch up model. And i tried to do most of my moving around parts in that model. I guess there were a few things that i knew i wanted. And those kind of defined where other things had to go I wanted the raised bed in the back. So i have a a garage space for my bicycle underneath and then i wanted as much counter space as i could have. I would have my fridge to be up high and you know when you start getting these rules then now you start getting to where okay. Where am i gonna put this water tank. And so yeah i had. I had things that i wanted to make happen in. They didn't all work for instance. I had Composting toilet used to roll out from compartment into the shower area. And that was a really bad idea at a rebuild that when debt dumb for the most part i did design on sketch up and i did build it pretty much from that sketch up model. I didn't use the model for measurements or anything A lot of sitting inside the camper staring at walls. I mean a what it was kind of a fluid process. Let's just say that. yeah. I saw that. You saved a lot of the material that when you took it apart. Took the ambulance part of it. Apart that that was kind of almost like a sip material yes. And i was really surprised that it i thought it was going to be Was an md. Asked the oracle board stuff but it turns out. It is looking at it now. It is Fiberglass impregnated hard foam with of some sort of citing almost like a vinyl or like a countertop It's good stuff i did. I did save every bit of it and Most of it has gone right back in because it's light and strong and then the other primary building don't white starboard which is our get it wrong. I think it's polyethylene. It's from the marine industry. It's it's about three times more expensive than plywood and twice the weight. Which makes me wonder why i did it. Sometimes but well reason i did. It is because it's why i like that and it's You don't have to paint it and it's great to work with and you can't get any molded water damage or anything like that. So it's worked up pretty well. Actually that seems worth it just just in not having to paint it or finish it at all to install it in. That's done yeah. I love building stuff. I i do not like this inish work. I just don't like the sanding all that they to happen. Sometimes well i really appreciate. You've been super generous with with all this info. Is there anything that i haven't asked you about that you that you wanna tell me about or common questions that you get about it. You know i. I would I want to throw out numbers. Actually because everybody asks in a yeah. I mean and i don't mind talking about it so i've seen this ambulance for sale for an with more miles under fifty thousand miles on them. I've seen them for sale for as little as about twenty grand in to drive and then maybe twenty two well only two eighty four wheel drive betting on mileage so i bought this one it i. It came from yellowstone national park. I don't know why they got rid of it. they sold it to a broker in houston and He actually bought it for thirty eight thousand dollars. And then he marked up to forty four and i bought it for forty four and it had thirteen thousand eight hundred miles on it. So basically new sounder. Full yep And then i kept track of the money put in you know a ten thousand dollars for the electrical systems like that and i put in about sixty so i am. I'm between one hundred and five and ten thousand dollars for the and like i said people ask all the time or they're embarrassed s but they do anyway so just throw those numbers out there and then the other thing i get asked is where do i find an ambulance. And how did i find. The ambulance You know you just type in use ambulance on google there. I had about twenty sites and once identified what i wanted. I would just go through that list every day until the one popped up. Let's not that hard Yeah just. I've been used annual. There's ambulance traitor dot com. There's all kinds of out there. They're they're amazing platform or Especially starter you can get them as low as five thousand dollars and you know oftentimes. They're maintained very well especially at threat of firehouse. Sometimes if they are the places where they Attia say that they're just on contract. You know those might be pretty rough but you get the ambulance. That has the electrical system. Basically oftentimes they have a walk-through from the cab. It got the doors. They've got at least a couple of windows. Everybody makes bad out of the bench on the other side of the counter. It's real easy to put in a stove top in a fridge. I think people do very little work and have a really nice camper or it's not much money. I mean twenty grand ten that you really want to go to buy four budget. Yeah yeah and that's you know. I'm kind of thinking right now that that it seems like there's a bit of a rush on like sprinter vans 'cause people are buying them to convert them and you know there. Is that smaller size ambulance that you see like in cities and around that that isn't maybe it's a light duty ambulance. I don't know what you would call it but it's built on a smaller platform. Then what then what you've got I know what you call it. There's one called a mini. Maud has a single rear wheels. And it's It's a lighter duty. You wouldn't be able to put a lot of stuff in it. But i mean it's a tiny little thing you could you could zip around in that thing and parking Regular parking spots all day long right right and then probably get better. You know maybe a little bit better gas mileage. But you're probably not going to be off roading and going going overland Oh i mean they have four-wheel-drive ones as well so You can buy them right from Rick from the firehouse sometimes and will drive capable. Yeah yeah i just. Google searched the mini modern and. That is exactly what i'm thinking about. It's like a like a ford three fifty platform right. I think or maybe four. The i dunno. I shouldn't talk. I don't know what i'm talking about. The they quit doing the three fifty. So yeah now. it's something newer. But it's probably the oldies but you cannot. Yeah and along those. Have the good Seven point three liter diesel engine. And it's a real solid platform and the quality of the box in. These things is just absolutely incredible. I do know that but no you go ahead okay. I did find the original documentation on this ambulance Like i said in yellowstone national park paid two hundred and twenty grand for this thing so it is serious quality just the doors and stainless steel hardware. Just really well then. Also i mean one of the biggest challenges when you take like a you know a work van and converted is that you've got to insulate it. It's gonna be like a pressure cooker in the summer and of freezer in the winter and so on the ambulance. I'm assuming is already insulated. They do come. Some of them are insulated. Pretty well some of them. Not so much you do have. You can't have an issue while you will have an issue with thermal bridging. So for instance. My entry door is aluminum on the outside aluminum on the inside and they might have a couple. You know one itch. A couple sheets one one. She of one inch rigid foam in there. But honestly it doesn't do much. That door gets off when it's in the sun so if you really you know if you're gonna be serious about a camper or make it into a fulltime home you really need to rip all that out and yeah and but some insulation between a metal and the inside outside and this is your fulltime home cracked. Yes this is it. I've been in this one for a couple years now and Yep i do not have any other ill missile in. It sounds like you're not. Are you thinking about the next one or are you. You like your set on this one for a while. I'm i'm actually very set on this. And i'm really happy with it. There are things that You know if something bugs me. I'm more along the lines of I'm just going to be bill. That i'm just gonna rip that out. Do it different I'm very happy with us. I feel like i nailed the platform. This time and and and i have those goodies that i wanted. You know. I have my walks through and my shower will let my skylight above my bed. Just all these little things that i really wanted to have some very happy with it has been doing really well. That's awesome one thing that i like to ask. All my guests is Do you have any books or resources to recommend if they're interested in in going down the the ambulance path. Now as you know. I've listened to several of your podcast now so i was expecting this question but good for you. I i kind of want to throw a little wrench in. Though if you don't mind i'll just tell you what i wanna do. And then you you decided to let that fly so And i'm not going to get political. But i'm gonna talk a little bit about A political option adam. So i don't even know when this will come out. It might be after the election. But then there's a podcast about a thing called rakes choice voting. Yeah and i would love it. You've heard about it. I've heard all about ranked choice voting. I think it would be great. Okay okay so that's all. I want to say What's the pies asked. The link teeny radio lab. I think it's called tweak the vote yep and they basically go through how it works and why it works and how. it's bipartisan. good for everybody. It's good for everybody about the politicians to. Yeah so it's something that i would just like to know about so if you'd be so kind as a rank in your shenault be awesome for sure i will. I will do that and i. I think that this will probably come out after the election but I think that regardless of which election we're talking about in the future it would be great if more states switched over the ranked choice voting. I think they do it in maine. Actually come. I heard there are some counties. That are already doing it. And i know you'll hear on the podcast though ireland's used the campaign. The guys are nice because they get their vote from another person so they have to be nice to each other and then The last thing. Oh everybody's every vote counts you know. Yeah as you get to put you get to list by choice right. You can put a wild. You put a wildcard as your first choice at not not feel like your vote was wasted exactly because if that Wildcard gets dropped in your second choice goes in there so it's really cool and then i do have a book that i recommend About travel and and dan life. And it's called. Dr nacho drive by rod and sheena oh look gonna look at their. I wrote it down Brad and sheena van orden rod and sheena van orden. Okay cool walk. Dr nacho drive tribe nacho drive. It's just a really good travel book that they get in a volkswagen van and they go to south america and and There are there are a couple and it kind of gives you an idea of what this ban life would be like cool and living tiny and getting out there awesome. So i feel like i have to throw after. Throw to books back at you because there's a book okay good It's it's i. I believe it's a steinbeck novel called Travels with charley and okay. It's one of his later books. And it's he it's a you know it's not fiction. He actually converted a camper and and went out driving across the country With his dog and his dog's name is charlie. And it's a beautiful book and it will definitely make you're already living at but Of course it's beautifully written because it's steinbeck And then the other book is The title is actually a riff on that. One it's called travels with willie and it's written by this guy. Willie we're who's a famous bike. Touring guy so bicycle touring And it actually convinced me and my cousin to do a fifteen hundred mile bicycle tour ten years ago which precipitated are my whole tiny house build and all that stuff. So i'm definitely going to pick up that book because i love a good love. A good travel book. Okay excellent i will. I'll check out to sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing all right.

It's ancestry is shrouded in mystery jury advances in genetic testing could help identify the Maine coon's ancient relatives which may have accompanied the Vikings on their exploratory voyages. There is one origin story you however that may have resulted in the breed's distinctive name Captain Charles Kuhn kept longhaired cats on board when he sailed from England to New England ports during the late seventeenth seventeen in early eighteen hundreds legend has it that when Kuhn anchored his ship in New England ports his cats would slip away to mate with local felines although it is is steeped in speculation this long-standing folk story purports that these long haired Kitten or referred to as coon's cats the Maine coon's origins may be Murky Erkki but its future looks clear in nineteen eighty-five the main coon was declared the official state cat of Maine and as twenty eighteen the main coon was the fifth most popular breed in the United States a Maine coon even had a pivotal role in the Harry Potter films as Mrs Norris The pet cat of Custodian Mr Filch her claim to fame besides starring starring in one of the hottest film franchises of all time was stopping on command as she paced the halls of hogwarts.
