We might have to shift to indoor for next season just that we have the safest possible environment for the audience. In addition to which we're just gonna keep doing radio shows to stand there for a second you guys when you launched it last year we will get you indicate f. e. and then of course you also put it across the country. What's been the response of the audience to tell the resistance by the way they're hilarious. It's been interesting. I mean on the one hand the people who come to see my trip shows to see the big set and costume and all of that stuff that as a theater of physical and visual comedy suddenly doing the exact opposite and going under radio was kind of a shock for people. And i run into people. I ran into someone. Golden gate park yesterday. Who is a big mantra fan and loves the mantra but had listened to any of the shows because going into the park was part of the experience. it's like with any theater company performing arts organization. It's part of the ritual is going into that theater going into that park packing that lunch calling all your friends all of that ritual. That people are missing. That can't be replaced by something..

"Today. It's Golden Gate Park. Golden Gate Park uses 427 million gallons of drinkable water every year. That may not continue. Golden Gate Park is gorgeous. Yes, but to maintain that gorgeousness takes a lot of water. And that water is not Reused water. It's not gray water. It's potable water. The average household uses about 41 gallons of water a day in the city. And the city delivers 36 million gallons of water to San Francisco residents every day, so the upkeep on the park is huge. And when we use drinking water on these parks, and I've talked about this from the very beginning, I don't get this. I think we all should be using gray water or reused water and we have to rethink the way We look at these various reservoirs of water. I'm not talking about the literal reservoirs. But, you know, I mean, we have to begin to recapture a lot of the water that goes away and goes out right, so Golden Gate Park. Uses its own groundwater wells to irrigate the park. Which has water quality permitted for drinking water standards. The Panhandle uses water from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. And by summer of 2022, barring any delays. The water used for irrigation and Lakeville. Instead is going to come from a recycled water system that's under construction now to replace the watering system that's being used now so they will begin to recycle. The other guys. They can't come soon enough. That's for sure. Exactly. The project is designed to deliver up to two million gallons of water a day but could reach a peak demand of four million gallons of water a day. That means in just a year. Everybody can feel better about Golden Gate Park. It's not using all of that water that's fresh water. It's called The West Side Enhanced water recycling project has been underway since 2017 and it will create a recycled water supply to use for non drinking purposes. Hmm. This. This is the stuff I love about San Francisco. Okay, you know, we talk endlessly. About the stuff that we don't like about San Francisco, which is associated with you know the rising crime. It's associated with the homeless problem. It's associated with Fecal matter in the streets. Um, you get the idea. I don't need to go down the whole list. I don't think okay, right? You don't But there's so much magic about San Francisco. And when it comes to forward thinking, I believe this is the city where it can happen. And I mean San Francisco. I'm talking about the whole Bay area. And I believe in this area we do. Think on the cutting edge, you know, And so anyway, this enhanced water recycling project is one of those things that I think is a positive. Um they're doing a whole lot of construction on it. Well, that's interesting, and I'm wondering if they're going to be able to tap the drinkable wells the well water in Golden Gate Park and use that for actual residents and get us through the drought years, right? I mean, that is a, uh That is sort of a buried treasure. So you're right. I mean, it would I wonder to what extent that will be redirected him. There's a good piece in SF Gate and I'll post it to my Twitter feed on all of this. Because they're building out this, you know, recycled water treatment facility, and then they have to get, um you know pipelines that go underground to You know the sunset, the Golden Gate Park and in the Richmond and they go all the way to the Presidio. So there's I mean, this is a big project, but that's what it's going to take. It's going to take big projects like this. Oh, my gosh. Yeah, it goes not only from Golden Gate Park, but the Lincoln Park. Yeah, that's 840,000 gallon Underground Reservoir and an above ground recycled water pump station in Golden Gate Park that will pump recycled water up to Lincoln Park, including the golf course and the Presidio. Um And it will be, I guess, purified, you know the user micro filtration process and reverse osmosis. Um, so there's even an ultraviolet light that That purifies it before it actually is used on the lawns and vegetation that make up some of these areas. Just got a UV light filtration drinking bottle. Really? Yeah. So I saw it on shark tank. I kind of like shark tank like that show shark tank, you know. And I thought, Wow, that's really cool. I mean, so you're telling me You press a button? And I'm a guy. I like pressing buttons and doing stuff you know, Right, Shining. I press the button on the top of this gadget, which is just a drinking bottle and a UV light will purify the water inside. Tell you little friends, The dreams do come true. That's right. Still locks up. That's a beautiful you can use the water for sharks. Do you love sharks? So I've just I've just received it. I saw it on shark tank. I thought I'm gonna check now. I didn't check it right away. I let some months go by, and sure enough, the shark tank people got They're startup gone, and then they're a bunch of other knockoffs. And so I'm using it now, after it tastes fine Taste good. Mm. So we'll see. I'll bring it in some day. I mean, how can you tell if it's uh if I was testing? Yeah, to see if it's working. You can't. That's the best part. You have no idea could be drinking total crap right now. Yeah, but there, um, there are which we are late, But there are ways once in a while to tell something's funky, You know, they're the taste around the Sacramento area in the water is supposed to be kind of, they say it's kind of like a dirt. Taste right now. But if that doesn't mean that it's not good water. It just has this taste, but they're getting a lot of complaints that they're telling people just to add lemon or what you say It's an odd fix. But alright, well, there's nothing.

Birding with Dr Meredith Williams
"Berta. Volt from more than one. Hundred and fifty million years ago and then explosively diversified culminating in more than ten thousand species distributed worldwide. Today are human. Relationship to beds is complex to seen as spirit messengers of the gods and at the same time. We took the wild red jungle fowl. From india and selectively bred into domesticated chickens the now farmed in cages feathers have been used for thousands of years and indigenous headpieces and at the same time but has like parrots and parakeets a kept as pets bird poop called guana was used as the first fertilize of modern agriculture. And charles darwin study of galapagos finches was to the formulation of evolution. Buds are all around us. We are closer to bed than any other wild animals birds. I literally and figuratively are canaries in the coal mine. Their wellbeing is our wellbeing threats to buds range from habitat loss including logging climate change industrial farming with pesticides invasive species and even cats. These will had a devastating impact on the bird populations of the us and canada. Which in just the last fifty years have declined by. Three billion birds danton insane. Thirty percent of all birds gone. Three billion pez of wings have vanished ever across our continent from sea to shining sea. Luckily birds have strong allies in their corner. There an estimated sixty million active bird watches in the us alone and with the pandemic shutting down so much of our country. We have flocking to bird watching like never before everything from bird feeders. To binoculars have been in short supply and this year the birding app e bird collected more sightings in a single day the was admitted during the first two and a half years of the apps existence. I must admit coming late to the bird-watching pardee. But thanks to dr meredith williams. That's about to change. I'm lucky enough to work with meredith every day in her role. Running one of the most important and complex agencies in california governor. The department of toxic substance control. Dr williams received two undergraduate degree from yale and a doctorate in physics from north carolina. State university meredith then worked and silicon valley fortune. Five hundred companies in the technology consumer product and chemical sectors meredith left the private sector to follow her passion for wetlands and birds and led the san francisco estuary institute as we'll hear. Meredith journey is about so much more than her resume. Meredith nine meet apt get ready for my maiden watching invention merit so we're about to go hopefully bed watching what. What do we need to bring with us while like what. What's what's in the bird watching backpack almost nothing. Which is great binoculars. Of course are your starting point. So i hope you have some inaugurals. I know you were looking for some recently. You gave me some good advice. But i get any but we all kind of professional but what just like you would have an extra pair. Do thought so. It's in the office but we could stop on the way out of town. Not of that sound. No we should. We should yeah. You just kind of out now. Okay okay so you got the binoculars. How do you if you're starting out. It's surprising how good have gotten very affordable these days so i mean it's still a lot to invest but ask a bird watcher. They might have an extra pair. That's the first place you might wanna try like them. What do you well. first of. All there are lots of different kinds of birdwatchers in terms of some people. Want to count every burden get really long list. And they track every single birthday they see. It's about the numbers of the that very unique bird and they chase vagrant birds that fly in unusually and they're rushing off to see that bird so there those kind of bird watchers I'm a bird watcher. Just watch one bird for a long time. I liked bird behavior. just i'm just fascinated by them. And i think they're beautiful so i could just end up watching one bird for for quite a while you can just take it. In at whatever level you want in terms of the variety birds that you could see and how you would just experience them and enjoy them. So and i think the only way to find that out is to bert. Watch a little and see what grabs you What you do sounds really peaceful. The first thing that sounds the first thing sounds more. Like in england as a whole breed of people go train spotters and i always kind of identified them with bird watchers. Like it's really about. How many things. You've you've been able to capture and less about the bird the thing that you'll doing just sounds like being a peaceful will watching another animal even the people who are energized. That way unless they're doing a big day which would be a day when they map it out to see as many birds as they can. In a single day they're not necessarily rushing around even they are going to have moments of really enjoying a bird and even somebody like me chased around golden gate park looking for a rare warbler. That's very rarely in san francisco. There's an amiability amongst birdwatchers is really camaraderie. People are so nice. There's always somebody better in terms of being a better bird watcher. Meaning they either can identify birds better or you know they just have a lot of experience for the a little bit about. The ecology and people are so happy to share their information. That it's really wonderful. That's one of the things i like about it. And it tends to be every now and then you get into group and there'll be somebody who's a little loud but by and large the the folks are really kind of it's easy to get in a groove with with birdwatchers and settled and gopher along stroll and see some great birds. But what's there everywhere that it's a it's a big i mean like it huge movement and it's growing apparently it's one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. There is it's it is just kind of crazy places where i been going for ten years and cues to be just me and five or six friends maybe and now parking lot and i think the pandemic has made it even more so where a lot of people. That's how they wanna get outdoors or they've they've just kind of discovering it because they know it is one of the only ways to be outdoors so i think it's going to continue to grow which i think is great because then more people are connected to the natural world which obviously makes them care about it more. How did you get into meredith like what. What was your journey into bed watching. I mean i liked birds always in the yard growing up in ohio. You know the robbins and the blue jays. There was a hill in town. And i used to ride my bike up in the hill early in the morning and i would always see birdwatchers and i said when i'm old air quotes. I'm going to bird watch. And i kind of that seed was planted but i didn't really bird-watching until my three say in my thirties. I started volunteering for the san francisco. Bay national wildlife refuges. That you know are on the perimeter of the bay. You know them well getting restored a lot of them Back to title harsh. And i when i volunteered i would be doing everything from pulling out. Invasive plants to building shells but there are always birds around and i just became more and more and more fascinated with the birds invested in binoculars and just started creeping in. You join the audubon society and suddenly you're getting news about different outings and the next thing you know you're you're pretty far in foreign now. I'm foreign. I'm not pretty far and have taken a couple bird vacations. Which i think says that. I'm pretty far in. But what do those entail. The longest trip i took was to go to brazil to the pantanal. Which is a very large wetland like the mecca of bud watching their many mecca. It is a mecca over the course of two weeks. We just went out every morning. We get up before sunrise. Be moving by six o'clock at the latest. Usually more like five thirty and we went to a place that's called the parrot crater a giant sinkhole. And it's all a lot of parents live down in the sinkhole. And so you look down. A new parrots lying around in a simple it was tremendous and we ended up seen two hundred different species of birds there along with some giant giant eaters river otter is and it was quite a trip but the birds were spectacular.

If 'cause it you know people like to call it liquid courage and that's cool.

"I spoke at a unity church last sunday. About how important. It is for us to balance introspection without prospection as a kid. I spent hours alone in my room reading drawing and building model airplanes. If i misbehaved at school. My parents couldn't punish me by yelling. Go to your room because my room is exactly where i always wanted to be instead. They literally locked me out of the house and said go play outside like a normal kid makes them friends. And while i'm not condoning this parenting method in hindsight. It probably did me some good mind you. This was years before we had terms for introverts extroverts. Kids on the spectrum and so on children were either considered to be well adjusted. Meaning that followed the one-size-fits-all set of behavior rules and guidelines to fit in or they were considered misbehaving troublemakers. Outcasts the only place. I actually sit in was an after school programs to learn pascal software and robotics. Which is where i made a couple of friends who otherwise also pretty much kept to themselves although alone time is healthy. So were the hours. I was forced to socialize with others whether locked outside the house. So i can play with the neighborhood kids or tori school field trips and camping adventures much to my resistance. At the time just as i was entering teenage years my family moved from small town in the northern most part of israel where grew up to california the high school i attended in san francisco not only had more students in it than my old town had residents but i was suddenly surrounded by asians blacks latinos and maybe a handful of other caucasians. It was a culture shock. In fact i probably would have gone into actual shock or drawn inward even more had. I not been encouraged to socialize in my earlier years. I'm not saying. I was well adjusted. I'm still not but i managed to quickly learn. English makes him friends and stay curious about everyone's culture religion and ethnic background. I asked so many questions because nothing. No one resembled anything to which i had previously been exposed. I joined what was called. Sf net a network of computers and coffee shops around san francisco with coin operated dialup modems. Long before computers had windows or mice just a black screen and a keyboard essentially offering a chatroom of sorts for up to thirty people at time either dialing in from their homes or from other coffee shops in the netters we called ourselves had net gets like bonfires on the beach or meetups at bars on ashbury back when nobody checked your id tecate in through sf net. I met people from all walks of life college kids adults and even befriended kids my own age. Who were homeless by choice. Living on the streets and sleeping and golden gate park as a result of all this exposure to such a variety of individuals. I didn't have the same knee jerk judgment that my parents had about other races religions homeless people and so on i truly believe visibility leads to acceptance the first time i saw someone with blue hair and facial piercings. I was blown away but the nineties had more than its fair share rebels and mohawks so nothing shocked me after a couple of weeks. Think about what it must have been like the first time someone saw an interracial or same sex couple holding hands walking down the street a few decades ago the first time may have been shock but it were off the more people were exposed to it until as just another happy couple granted in some areas and for some people that still a shock but to others. It's no big deal and that's because visibility is what leads to acceptance exposure opens our eyes first minds. Second an hartford. The key to empathy and compassion therefore is connection not just seeing punk rockers on mtv but having coffee with them on a thursday night. I guess i was forced to grow up in much the same way. I was forced out of the house. When i was younger. Residents of major metropolitan cities are exposed to different cultures beliefs and backgrounds on a daily basis. So they tend to be more open minded than people who never leave their rural areas. Where anyone who doesn't fit in is considered a freak that absence of exposure and connection leads to judgement and segregation. But we can expect the so called freaks to intentionally move to rural areas in order to open people's eyes minds and hearts. It's up to each one of us regardless of where we live to stop thinking of anyone as other and get curious instead of judgmental in a way only out rejection makes introspection possible. If that makes sense how would we know being judgmental if our rigid boundaries are being challenged. We can't heal what we refused to confront the logic of not criticizing what we haven't even made the effort to understand because once we understand. There's nothing left to criticize implies by definition that if there's anything about which i'm still being judgmental the problem is me. It means i have more work to do. It's not somebody else's job to explain themselves to me. It's up to me to do the work to look outside myself to understand the bigger picture where there's room for everybody

Pirates Of The Carolinas
"When I asked a couple of my friends from Ireland to join us on the show to talk about their country's legends of fairies and benches and things that go bump in the night. They were a little reluctant at first I thought it was because they didn't want to appear superstitious or maybe out of date. And that's what they wanted me to believe. But I wonder if they weren't just a little afraid. Coming up today on travel with Rick Steves we hear how the Irish comedy tells they grew up with very folk lurking in their surroundings in their testing their luck right now by making an exception to talk openly about it with us. We'll also explore San Francisco's legends of Ghost sightings from Al Capone on Alcatraz to a grieving mother who still wonders Golden Gate Park? Let's start with some wild tales of historical characters from the coasts of North and south. Carolina. Terrence Zip key is brought to life thirteen notorious pirates in her book pirates of the Carolinas. She relates stories of ships weighted down with gold crews too drunk on rum to fight treacherous colonial officials, mutineers, privateers, and the sad end of the line for the pirates who got caught. White Barents thanks for joining us. Hi, thanks for having me. Give us some background on this. What was the golden age of piracy in the United States? Well, we really don't know how long piracy's been around It's been around at least twenty, five, hundred years they are, and there was an era during its hey day that was known as the golden age piracy, and that was the light seventeenth century to early eighteenth centuries and The United States it'd be colonial America. It was colonial. America. When they came over here and Interesting Carolina had a lot of the officials had partnerships with the pirates. We were sort of commerce poor place back then. So we actually welcomed pirates like blackbeard until they had the big crack down on piracy and that was the end of that. So is it kind of the fine line between a privateer and pirate? What's the difference? It was such a fine line rick and basically a little piece of paper because a lot of the pirates started out they were privateers. And they were involved in Queen Anne's war wars all over Europe and everything, and they were commissioned to attack enemy ships in order to get money to get booty to help fund the war and they split the money with the crown. So yes. So the the king or the governor would say you are licensed to attack ships as long as they're not our ships and you p half the booty, but you gotta give the rest to us. So we can fight war whatever right and so then imagine when the war is over and your navy is no longer needed. All these men I've ever known. There's no employment. You know it was a fine line anyway between privateer and pirate. So a lot of them just became officially pirates and they got to keep everything. Nice business model. So, now, what was the basic action? It was mostly ships going from Europe to the Americas or where did they get their best opportunities at that time? That was all these merchant ships that were doing these trade routes and so you could just sort of sit out there. It was just like fishing and just block them off. They weren't very well armed or anything they were slow because they were big heavy. Ships with a lot of merchandise onboard now also, and it really didn't matter. This is one of those falsehoods that people realize people thought pirates just want gold and pieces of eight. But the truth is that they wanted what they could sell when they got these merchant ships and they had all these realms of fine linens and silks and tobacco and rum, and all this was this was pay dirt so they would. Get this stuff, and then they would go to the next port and just like you see when you travel a lot people stealing stuff off of ships and setting up a little stand and selling a cheap absolutely, and that's what they did like a lot more in partnership with the authorities here and so when they came into port and all that they would look the other way and then they would get A. Cut for looking the other way and the merchants would get discounted goods. The pilots would get money I mean everybody was happy sounds like a win win win lose situation I'm rick this is travel with Rick Steves speaking with Zip in her books called pirates of the Carolinas. We always think pirates of the Caribbean and your book is pirates of the Carolinas. Why was there so much pirate action and the Carolina? coast. Well at that time, these were pretty poor state. So we needed to get commerce wherever we could. So pirates were good for business. So we saw there were a safe haven for pirate in fact, blackbeard who was one of the probably the biggest chapter discussed in this book, he actually set up shop actually made a home and actually came part of the community and all up and north. Carolina.

"In in Golden Gate park the other day a bunch of protesters basically we really writers decided they were going to tear down statues and said they were in the news reports three hundred police officers there and nobody was arrested how is it possible to turn on public monuments it was even told by their higher ups you're not to arrest anybody we don't want any confrontations here the police have been in many areas not only acting with restraint in order to act with restraint while open criminal activity is taking place and that's a problem of leadership that is not the cops is a problem of leadership in it Christine Ahn is the governor of South Dakota and I tweeted out yesterday that we are about five minutes away from the wheel glass calling for the destruction of mount Rushmore is immediately tweeted back not on my watch that's what leadership should be it no one gets to violate the criminal law well I am in charge of the executive branch of my government but they're too many mayors with decided their reelection rests basically I'm catering to the welcome OB and that's that's sort of what is happening here and it's really ugly and it's really bad Steve I appreciate the opinion meant thank you thanks so much Joseph in Virginia beach Virginia and then special for justice Hey how's it going then I have a question about can he said bishop he was the twenty five year old who pushed us Thursday morning air off the the Boston Las Vegas she has a history of violent past kind of like the George Floyd incident except he stepped on house arrest for over a year no conviction that happen I understand it's probably because the cold and everything but like why did I not hear about this on any news sources that are you know the big media is or anything I have to get it from somebody shared that to me a year after the incident happened sh so my understanding is that she is not a that she's under house arrest because she was released on on bail I'm not usually Sunday I mean she's she's she's not actually sitting in jail then released on bail for a fairly quickly and she was charged with open murder so normally are being held in jail on a charge of open murder and she charges of murder because you push it out the bus and he and he slammed his head correct I'm just wondering why the media is I'm talking about someone with a violent past the one she was let go from a position she destroyed in HR office in front of her kid like it it's clearly evident that this person is not in their own right of mine and they let them out of jail on murder charges and no one is talking about it yeah I mean I I don't know you know honestly I think that let's put this way if if what you had here was a case of eight and a twenty five year old white man pushing a seventy four year old black man off a bus in person dying at the national story as I as I mentioned before bad things happened between members of of all races not always proportionately but did but the media only like cover one type of story and that's the story that's their narrative and this goes to the basic idea of of many members left of the media which that every individual instance instance of a bad thing happening is an indicator of a broad societal problem people are not responsible for their own actions of a criminal action takes place that is indicative of a broader systemic problems of somebody which the store we're supposed to look the other way because that is indicative of broader American racism and that's what caused the poverty and that's what caused the person to lose if you have a situation in which a white person kills a black person as indicative of broader American racism doesn't that matter the circumstances doesn't matter how went down Michael brown shooting is the exact same thing as I'm in Arbury despite the fact that the fact patterns are completely different if you have a case in which a a black person because my person that simply will not receive national attention I literally I mean literally will not receive national attention it's just not a thing that that that will be covered by the media in the same way because again the media do not wish to draw a narrative and they don't have to here's the thing they don't have to run out of time any of the stuff they could just say you're a bunch of instances of bad people doing bad things and we should check the fact patterns and see if that implicates anything broader but me you don't want to do that what they want to do is jump from the tip of the iceberg down into the iceberg but the only one gel particular icebergs so if you only want to do that with particular stories you just ignore it are you ignore certain classes stories entirely because you are afraid that people are going to draw systemic implications that you don't actually like current credit better myself eight sorry about that guy who is disrespectful to you earlier I don't understand people's problems comes it comes it

this is five minutes five minutes is produced at the studios of KQED FM in San Francisco five minutes is a production of technician media I'm Paul land for from San Francisco I'm lawyer again and this is technician today on technician I speak with some people call about the crazy ideas that were ridiculed and rejected and then turned out to be brilliant the French biotech firm working in the area of sudden hearing loss severe vertigo and a connected problem hearing loss in children after cancer treatments finally what we can do on our DNA fails us the Dutch company publicly traded in the US is approaching childhood blindness and other genetic diseases we're all familiar with the popular term moon shots undertaking a really big ambitious goal but some people call has written a book entitled loon shots I asked him once a loon shot everybody knows what a moon shot is a it's a destination it's a big exciting call that gets widely applauded like when when president Kennedy in nineteen sixty one and downs to Congress that we would place a man on the moon he was widely applauded Meyer but the interesting thing is a forty years earlier when a man named Robert Goddard had described how we might get there with jet propulsion liquid fueled rockets he was widely ridiculed I mean the New York times at the time put out editorial saying that this guy is a professor was a quick chair and physics doesn't understand the basic laws of physics are we teaching high school every year namely that Newton's laws of action reaction make rocket flight in space impossible by the way I have to say that in July eleven nineteen sixty nine the day after the Apollo eleven successful launch of the moon the times issued a retraction go parent lay rocket flight is not inconsistent with the laws of physics and quote the times regrets the error the Kennedys announcer was a classic moon shot Goddard's ideas where classical and shot nobody believes here nobody believes in that rather than you know play trumpets red carpets announcing some big thing the big ideas to change of course a science business in history often heard this Mister neglected or even ridiculed for years sometimes for tickets in the champions or written off as crazy that's why come chat now I have to say that everybody I think has come up with a good idea and felt that burned you know people say that's not a very good idea I'll never work you never did it that way there's a hundred things that they say the in part of the problem is that you can't just go off not say anything and do it yourself to really get big things done takes byen takes people really jumping on board with you absolutely I think in in our might I spent many years in drug discovery and work in new cancer drugs and the people don't quite realize there's a very long distance between an idea and the finished product Sir is just talking to somebody yesterday like wow this is really really hard work years on this so let's start a company that would be easy compared to what I did but really that the idea is getting the ball to like your twenty yard line and then you got another eighty yards to March it down the field to get to the finish product and there's no way to get just from a single idea in a single champion to a finished product you need tons in the people who developed a prototype people understand the market the people who work with regulatory agencies people package it up and unless they're also excited you've got nothing we just got an idea now you looked at this and said I think I understand what will make this work and you're talking about the science of phase changing that's right Sir imagine you have a glass of water you can stick your finger and slide should around and that's always true for any liquid except as you gradually change the temperature all of a sudden the molecules will completely change their behavior the go from fluid and sloshing around to completely Bridget but what the mileages insider exactly the same how did they know to suddenly change behavior there's no lead CEO molecule saying be squishy one day be Richard the next day there's water be ice exactly there's something about the structure something about the interacting forces between them those molecules that they don't need to be told they suddenly rearrange and so the interesting thing is applying and extending those ideas not just as a metaphor analogy but actually mathematically by looking at the incentives inside organizations when every being groups of people together to form a team a company or even a nation and see how those incentives will suddenly shift from encouraging embracing wild new ideas to becoming rigid and rejecting the same ideas so in a sense the environment determines in many cases whether they say that is just a terrific idea or get out of here right part of how I started all this stuff is when I was when I first started by tech company I was pretty young guy and so like a lot of first time entrepreneurs the first time leaders and managers I read everything I could find about you how to be a better leader how to build a great culture and so much of that stuff was in fact about culture in a intimate innovative and empowering you to some of that stuff makes sense obviously want to celebrate your employees is supposed to humiliating them that's probably a good idea but after a while also wrist feels kinda squishy and it's also the sounds the same I was looking for some sort of hardware understanding and it also it didn't quite add up because you would see these come please talk about you know what great cultures they have a great cultures have and then the next day they be in the toilet so is the same culture yet there was all of a sudden went from racing on their ideas to to killing them and so that's where I started thinking about is there something else going on and most of the books or literature that I read have always focused on culture and none of actually said well why don't we just think you what people's incentives are and that's where I started realizing that year everybody had when you arrange people tend to a group you create two forms of incentives and that's exactly the same thing that happened and it reminded me of mine from my background in physics the radical physical run me that a phase transition in nature is always the result of two competing forces it's like a tug of war and as soon as the tug of war flips you get a phase transition so water there's entropy that wants molecules to rush around to be free and there's binding energy that wants to lock every molecule two point eight angstroms from its neighbor not two point seven or not two point nine and is your chest the temperature the relative strength of those two forces changes boom at thirty two Fahrenheit the cross in the system snaps and that's the idea within teams companies our nation to set their these two incentives from poison organizations in you as you just some elements of organization design the relative strength of those incentives changes and all of a sudden boom the system will snap at people the same people will go from embracing while new ideas to rigidly rejecting them and I've seen that happen and we practice in an affix planning a lot of weird things that some I made sat in that app and yeah the Germans had that lived far off the planes are classed anything the allies had and they look ready to bomb your into submission and and they did within weeks and then they discovered in January nineteen thirty nine something called nuclear fission splitting the atom which put it within reach of the most destructive weapon ever created by mankind and so the guy was Jennifer bush and my team was dean of engineering and I. T. you recognize the threat he quit his job moved to Washington talked his way into a ten minute meeting with FDR and said we're going to lose this war because it's gonna be a technology driven war and the military will never catch up now he had worked with the military he respected the military any understood that he would never change military culture not only that he shouldn't because the military culture anti discipline was essential to moving millions of soldiers a battle in building millions of guns and ships and planes and directing the course of the war but it was not the right environment for creating the radical new technology so we needed to catch up and exceed the Germans so we separated create his own group of creative artists and scientists sequestered in various buildings across the country including the rad lab at MIT and so when they developed the technology especially my grave read on that end up really turning the course of the battle of the Atlantic which ultimately to the course of of the war the war the first time they developed my grave red eye and the scientists in Boston sending a building so we can see you about this is awesome that they had these submarines in the in the Boston Harbor and they tested those it we're done we just solve the problem this is fantastic let's give it to the pilots to Madonna we wash our hands will win the war and they did ninety four to nothing happened and bush and the insular like when it we have this phenomenal technology wise and it being years and so he bush stepped in and a tall the engineer listen get on the plane to sit in the cockpit with these pies to figure out what's going on so they did and they realize when they're flying over you know you're after the Alaskan being shot at and they have like they just trying to survive and they have this black box there with fifteen switches it wasn't that the technology it's just that they're being shot at they don't have time to figure out a leap to the U. M. and then make them to realize the technology was find their unit their user interface was lousy so I went back to the lab and designed this you know that I saw a sub screen with a sweeping line that you see with the little dots they put it in and boom it really did turn the course of our within the first four weeks of the liberator bombers flying over the Atlantic the allies shot down more U. boats then they had an entire war combine and Jimmy lost one third of its U. boat fleet and then another six weeks they declare defeat they withdrew all the votes from the Atlantic and the lanes were cleared for resupplying England and ultimately the information and defeat if of Germany into the the lesson there is that it's not about the supply of the idea or the creation of the idea innovation usually fails and the transfer and it's not just transfer one.
