How Ford Made the Worst Car Ever
"Edsel. Ford was born in eighteen ninety three in detroit. He grew up in the motor city before it was the motor city his entire childhood. He had a shotgun seat to watch his father. Henry ford build the automotive empire that shared his name. Big shoes big shoes. The shoes they say about big shoes to fill Edsel seem to share his dad's passions. He grew up tinkering with cars and learning everything. There was to know about engines and design and so looked up to his famous father. But unlike henry ford edsel was a kind man who enjoyed the finer things in life. He was stylish and aristocratic. In contrast to papa henry who famously hated anything frivolous or luxurious having a private chef at your camping trips. Yeah ron christie at your camping trips. Do we have to revisit the sixty-nine square no you don't have to get into him. Sixty nine hundred edison. But it happened one hundred percent for sure henry. Ford did sixty nine with thomas. Edison well for a more substantiate an example. Whenever henry visited edsels house edsel had to hide his fine wine collection. One want your dad to know that you had the good stuff. Do you guys have a wine collection. Not for very long. Yeah i've got a couple of wines. Why way me it was really bad. We're keeping that edsel believe that the ford motor company needed to look towards the future but his father was increasingly obsessed with the past for instance. Anyone who mentioned decommissioning. The model t was fired. Why would you even think about doing that if you're like yeah well at. This point is pretty old car although their relationship was what we might call today. Toxic henry ford still taught us on how to run the company. Henry ford started the ford motor company in nineteen. Oh three and in one thousand nine hundred henry step down and name president of the company

"Even though his son was ostensibly in charge he refused to listen to people who were telling him that. The model t had run. Its course and the company really needed to update their their line with a new model of car. Henry ford held out against those critics year after year until nineteen twenty seven when it was clear that they were right. Other companies notably. Gm were seen great success with their approach to planned obsolescence in which they would introduce new versions of car models every year they would update the style. They would create a new type of demand by kind of making cars. Stylish status symbol whereas ford while it would incorporate improvements in new versions of the model t really wasn't changing the model t very much year. You know a late model. T looks pretty similar to an early multi. The ford company stopped production on the multi in nineteen twenty seven shutting down the highland park facility for half a year in order to change the assembly line process over to making a new car which was confusingly called the model. A i guess most folks didn't know about or remember the old nineteen o. Three muddle a. It's not a big surprise. I mean the company did make fewer than two thousand of them but the multi had by then changed the world in nineteen eighteen. The model t represented nearly fifty percent of all cars on the road in america so in other words about half the cars in america were model ts and the other half of the cars were spread across all the other car. Companies that were scrabbling for that. fifty percent. The model t helped push the urbanization of america cities grew people began to move to cities. You started to see the advance of streets and much later. The highway system the mass production methods that ford would adopt would end up being used for everything from manufacturing airplanes to putting together hamburgers. It really was a transformational company. Not just in the auto industry but beyond and a great deal of credit does need to go to henry ford and and the team that he put up around him the took him a few times to get it right and of course he still made some very regrettable decisions and had expressed some truly horrific viewpoints at different times in his life so he is by no means someone we should hold up as at an unimpeachable hero but he really wasn't important person in the world of technology in general and the automotive industry in particular the world would be very different. Henry ford not gone into the automotive business and that concludes the story. Obviously i could do lots of episodes about the ford motor company and talk about. It's transformation and change can talk about how henry ford would come back to head up the ford motor company after his son passed away suddenly and talk about how his grandson would take up the mantle later on but those are topics we should tackle in the maybe a future episode of tech stuff and for the time being. I'm ready to close the door on the model t all right. Well if you guys have any suggestions for topics that i should cover in future episodes of tech stuff let me know. The best way is to reach out on twitter. The handle for the show is tax stuff.

"The first model ts or the ten lizzy as they were also known were assembled by hand using tried and true methods. It was reliable but it was also slow. Ford introduced the model t on october. First nineteen ninety eight and by november. I the assembly plant at pikit had only put together eleven of the cars even with the best assembly practices of the time. This was slow. Work demand was high and supply was low due to the limitations of the assembly. Plant the model t had a twenty horsepower. Four cylinder engine like the most recent ford vehicles at the time. The engine was at the front end of the car and the engine could run on gasoline. Ethanol or according to one source. I read kerosene used a radiator to cool the engine which means i get to explain how radiators work which is actually pretty simple all right so internal combustion engines generate a lot of heat. Because you've got combustion going on there. Effectively explosions happening within cylinders multiple times. A minute so to cool the engine. Ford's designers built water passages. Where water could flow past the engine essentially tubes or pipes really and help carry. Heat away from the engine. So coolant essentially water in the early days with flow through these passages. It would pick up heat from the engine block. Carry that he away from the engine. It doesn't overheat. And then that heated water would transfer heat too thin thins of thermally conductive metal that phrase by the way is way easier to write than his to say anyway that he would then radiate out into the environment through these thin fins tada and early model. Ts the first two thousand five hundred or so even had water pumps to physically push the water through the system. From essentially a reservoir through the water passages past the engine block transfer the heat to the fence and then back into the reservoir but after those twenty five hundred or so first model ts. Ford's team came up with a thermo. Siphon approach which religious relied on physics because as the water would heat up it would expand become less dense and naturally move up through the system essentially used gravity and heat to do all the work. So you didn't have to have a mechanical pump. The car's fuel system was also gravity fed..

"It was nineteen zero. Three and henry ford was now thirty nine years old. The first two companies he founded fizzled out as investors backed away from ford. The automobile was still in its infancy and ford. Wanted to play a part. In its early development. He had new investors including the dodge. Brothers whom i also mentioned in the gm episode. It's a very incestuous group. Automakers collectively his investors raised more money than went into either the detroit automotive company or the henry ford company. Twenty eight thousand dollars. In fact and the ford motor company was born like the other companies. It called detroit for himself was heavily invested in the company he owned slightly more than twenty five percent of the company's stock upon its formation for the first few years he shared control the company with fellow investors but by nineteen o six. He assumed the position of president and controlled the company pretty effectively and skipping ahead a bit and we'll touch back on this late in the episode in nineteen nineteen and nineteen twenty. He and his wife clara and their son edsel would hold a buyback of all outstanding stock. That's putting it lightly will get to it. It's actually a little more amusing that but anyway they spent more than a hundred million dollars to essentially buy up all the stock or at least enough for them to have controlling interests and became effectively the sole owners of the company. Now the first car produced by the ford motor company became known as the a ford. Now clearly this was not the model that the ford company would produce in nineteen twenty seven. No this was the nineteen o three model. A and it was a different beast altogether. The model a was a style of car called a run about it was an open vehicle. Meaning there was no top to the car. There's no roof no windshield there. No doors in to would just step up onto the car and then into it and sit on a bench style. Seat similar to horse drawn buggy. The fact that looked a lot like a buggy. Just you know without the horse. This vehicle measured four feet nine inches tall or about one point four meters. It was five feet five inches or one point six five meters wide and it was about eight and a half feet long or two point six meters..

"Vehicles more reliable and easier to handle and etc but his backers were more interested in you know selling cars and it is hard to make money if the guy in charge of manufacturing. Your product is spending all the time on improving that product. Not selling it. The detroit automobile company lasted only a year and a half before ford's investors exasperated threw in the towel and dissolved the company ford. Meanwhile kept his hand in by designing and building cars to compete in various races in nineteen one car. He built competed in a ten mile race. In grosse pointe michigan and the won the race. That driver was henry ford himself for then designed a better race car called the nine nine. Nine ford also sought out new investors to give that whole company thing another go. The remains of the detroit automobile company would serve as the foundation for a new company called the henry ford company. Ford was able to convince more investors to jump on. after the successful races. He had built up a lot of positive. Pr and the company took shape in november nineteen. O one is new. Investors soon encountered the same issues as their predecessors they watched as henry kept changing designs and attempting to improve vehicles and claiming. They weren't yet ready to be sold to the public and he was probably right but keeping a business. Afloat is expensive. And if there's little to no money coming in from sales then that means the investors have to shoulder that load. Tensions between ford and those investors reached a boiling point and ultimately ford decided to leave in a huff. Are maybe a million and a half anyway. He decided to leave and had been less than half a year. Yikes now if you listened to my episodes about general motors you know it. Was this company. The henry ford company that would transform into the cadillac company. After a guy named henry leland was brought in to assess the company assets. Now the original plan was that the investors were going to liquidate everything. And just you know. Call the loss but leland convince them to stick with it and the cadillac was born. Which would later get scooped up as part of gm when ford left one of the few things he got to take with them was his name. I mean it was his name after all. He also took his determination to stick with the whole car thing. Third time's the charm right. And so he sets out to get a new group of investors to help him create an automobile company. And sure enough. This one would be the real success. It would be the ford motor company when we come back. I'll talk about the early days of that company and the birth of the model t but first. Let's take a quick break..
How the Agency Model Disrupts the Australian Automotive Market
"So john we talk about the dealer distribution model the franchise distribution model have been around for long time. Henry ford was one of the pioneers in the industry. Not interested manufacturing but also in the vehicles to independent businesses across the us and then he took model either to europe to expand the franchise. Business also sell more vehicles. Tell us more about how and why did he do it. In one of the benefits to the manufacturer and the benefits to the deal. I think the important thing about the way henry ford. Where is he needed to have a very efficient factory to get that efficiency you needed to produce sign many vehicles a diet and make sure that constantine coming out to the factory and the best way to do that is he needed to get them as sole as quickly as possible. And that's sort of how the franchise model develops of the vehicles produced in. The factory comes out yet meetings. He sells that to someone. Who's going to on. Sell the product pipe for the vehicle at the nighttime the responsibility to then sell to the customer. Which could take a month two months three months but his important thing was to make sure as is produced at salt. And he's the money and he can bring in the next vehicle installed producing that the amount of capital outline invasive is running at the table in terms of the current franchise model stolen existence road across many countries today and the way mice automotive manufacturers work is they will produce the vehicle will come out to the factory dealer will purchase that vehicle and he will then high for the vehicle before it leaves the premises of the manufacturer distributor if the vehicles being shoved another market overseas. That'd be a colby ship ship at once. It lands and the country a dealer within have to pay for before leaves a distribution center. And then in some instances the distributor the manufacturer might support the dealer in paying some sort of interest for a certain interest
Faster Horses & Product Myths
"Always been annoyed with the quotes from the steve. Jobs is and the henry. Ford's where it's like if i don't do focus groups if i'd asked people what they wanted they would have wanted a faster horse and instead i get built on a car. Here's why those quotes number one. It's unlikely you have the resources. That steve jobs and henry ford did by the time. Steve jobs was. I think it was twenty. Who's worth a million by. The time is twenty one hundred ten million. By the time he's twenty two is worth one hundred million and a lot of that was on the back of this incredible once in a generation. Invention that steve wozniak had designed it was called the apple one. And that's what made them. They have all this amazingness. After that steve jobs then proceeded to launch failure after failure from the lisa to the original macintosh which eventually became successful but it was a train wreck when it launched to the apple. Newton fail fail fail. Who's running the company so poorly that he got kicked out the board voted him out and you know he went off. And if you read the book. I think it's called becoming steve jobs. It's about the a lot about the interim years and how he matured during that time and then he did figure himself out when he came back to apple in the late nineties he was amazing and he was an amazing not only business product person before that yes. He was a good marketer. Yes he could talk yes. He could stare at people and convince them to do things that they were. You know maybe shouldn't do. They were scared to do he could. You'd say it's either persuasion intimidation or something. But he was not a great product person in the early days was wozniak and obviously jobs learned this and did become that overtime. All that said these luminaries are quoted. In and i feel like it's this myth of she. Should you listen to your customers or not. There's an in-between. Because when henry ford says that people would have asked for a faster horse. That's like saying i asked my customers what they wanted and they said that they want a button in my interface to download and then make changes and re uploaded. So are you going to give them exactly what they want. Or you going to put your product hat on. Maybe your vision hat your founder gut feel hat and say that's a dumb idea. There's a ways your way to do that. Why don't i just build a lightweight kind of accel manipulation widget within my app and on. This is just an example. I'm saying that's the best the better or the worst way to do it. But if you're product person you never take customer suggestions and build what they want because you wind up with crap software you wind up with a million settings you wind up with terrible. You actually end up a terrible. Ui because customers are not product people. They're not experts for the most part in general so when henry ford says they were asking a faster horse i put on my visionary my product tat and i think what are they act. What's the job done. Well they want something that moves faster than a horse so what can do that. We'll trains can do that these days. Right locomotives in what is one thousand five hundred. Ten locomotives can do that. So can we build a locomotive that run something. that's not on rails right that's the type of innovation that that ford put into place so to take his quote and to act like don't listen to customers at all. I think a grave misuse of that as product people and that instead of taking exactly verbatim literally what customer said and building that into your app. There's a balance here right. It's that product vision that you have. Where do i want my product to go. And how do i want to feel and how they want it to be used to build in it and not build in it. What i wanted to become not become because i tell you. In the early days of drip people want us to build affiliate management software into it because a competitor had it. They want us to build shopping cart into landing pages where all these things that other competitors had built and we're opinionated enough that we said our opinion is that we should integrate with best of breed and so we have thirty five tier one integrations by the time we were you know year and a half two years into drip and that was the approach. We take that was our opinionated stance on whether we're going to make this thing and all in one. i'll say monstrosity. All in windsor monstrosities. But that's what i felt like is that would be a worst in class and we'd have five tools built into one or we could be best in class marketing automation and integrate with the other. Best in class. So that's my stance on this whole henry ford quote and i'd love to hear your thoughts. Maybe i'll tweet this out to get a conversation going because it kills me every time someone says it. It rubs me the wrong way that it's it's touted as this this big grandiose thing of. I'm such an innovator look at me and it's like no you actually. Yes you did you invent head and you did. Innovate in the way that you solved customers problems but then don't go back and say i didn't do anything customers we're asking for because they were actually asking for a car they just didn't know it.

Teacher Efficacy? 5 Ways to Develop this Key Mindset
"On this episode. We'll be talking about five ways to develop your teacher efficacy on episode twenty one. We talked about the highest impact on student achievement. Is collective teacher efficacy. So on this episode. I thought we could dive a little deeper and explore how to develop your teacher advocacy teacher. Efficacy is defined as cope teachers confidence in their ability to promote student learning. In other words you believe about your abilities as a teacher is in direct proportion to you promoting student learning this makes me think of henry ford's quote whether you think you can or you think you can't you're right and again i'm not saying yes. If you start to think positive overnight your students are going to learn and grow however we need to make sure that we have our belief system and have belief in our abilities that we can promote student learning the develop. Your teacher. Efficacy is to work through and challenge your prejudices and stereotypes and stereotypes that you may have and s humans we all have stereotypes and prejudices that we need to examine in order to be our best selves. Teachers can sometimes unknowingly carry these stereotypes and prejudices into their classroom for example. One may believe that because students are at risk. There is nothing that the teacher can do to help them when in actuality if the teacher believe in his or her ability that she can help the go at risk child then this might make a difference in that students outcome and i think it also works the other way around at one point in my career had to give the student in my classroom and i needed to meet her needs. I had to work through my believe that teaching gifted students hard and so i worked at the students. I found strategies and teaching methods to help her so that she could learn and the the second way to develop your teacher. Efficacy is to examine your expectations about the students. You teach and. I want you to think about patients that you have for the students. Ut and ask yourself these questions do you believe that. They haven't performed well in previous years than there is no possible way for them to do well in your class. Do you think advanced concepts in your subject. Area is too difficult for students to understand. So you shy away from projects and real world learning when a student rises above your expectations. How do you respond. These are some questions to help you. Think about your student expectations and how you can should adjust them to enhance student. Learning and develop your teacher efficacy. The third way to develop your teacher. Efficacy is to observe another effective teacher. And i want to put an emphasis on effective. This is sometimes harvard. Teacher is because you may think that observing another teacher means that you're not a good teacher but we need to let go of that. That's far from the case. You're learning to see what would work if you observe another teacher. The has the same students as. You're the same background same demographics you'll be able to see that. There can be resolved with those students. Those students are able to achieve at high levels. The fourth way to develop your teacher advocacy is to be open to new ways of learning and teaching. It's easy to get stuck in a rut. Because what you've been doing works for you in your teaching. Once the experiment with different ways of teaching and learning you'll get more confidence teaching abilities which increases your efficacy number five. Use your past successes to build on your current teaching. Think about the successes you've had in the past and how those teaching experiences major students successful part of those experiences. Can you replicate throughout your teaching. So you can enhance student learning for example. I've plan and some lesson and created a project for students in kindergarten and what went. Well was that my students who took High-performers were the students who perform well on this project base learning lesson so with that. I knew that. I had to replicate by giving students more stem based project because it would help the classroom to show demonstration in other ways besides tests and quizzes and writing sell some key takeaways from this episode. One work through and challenge your prejudices and stereotypes number to examine your expectations about the students. You teach number three observe another highly effective teacher that has a similar demographic as students number four the open to new ways of teaching and learning number five successes to build on your current teaching before. We end this episode. I wanted to let you know that if you're struggling with classroom management and need help. I created a micro training and you can learn more at teachers.

Well he is a visionary entrepreneur and the co founder of paypal and tesla motors as well as the founder of the new space x program which is very popular to day his astounding success has given rise to comparisons to the uniqueness of howard hughes and the tenacity of a henry ford but he did have an often difficult childhood like most of us kids his own age made fun of him from his own descriptions the years were lonely and brutal alon is quoted as saying they got my best friend to lure me out of hiding so they could beat me up and that hurt. That's when i realized that they were going to go after me non stop. That's what made growing up difficult for a number of years. There was no respite. You get chased around by gangs. These gangs tried to beat the insert. Swearword here out of me. And then i'd come home and it would just be awful there as well but not all was wasted. This difficulty cultivated itself into a relentless work ethic a never ending tenacious vision of the future. You see enron was born and raised in south africa and he spent some time in canada before finally moving to the united states thin and the united states. He was educated at the university of pennsylvania. A very good school majoring in physics. That's when ilan started to excel and experiment to soon. Become a serial tech entrepreneur with early successes like zip to an x dot com. He took on two majors at the university of pennsylvania but his time there wasn't all work with a fellow student. He bought a tin bedroom fraternity house which they used as an ad hoc nightclub will. Musk graduated with a bachelor of science and physics at all as a bachelor of arts in economics from the wharton school for ilan. Physics made the deepest impression. He is again quoted as saying and somewhat giving directions to boiling things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from their. Musk was twenty four years old when he moved to california to pursue at phd in applied physics at stanford university with the internet. Exploding in silicon valley booming. Musk had entrepreneurial visions on his mind and dropped out of the physics program just after two days but in two thousand and four. Musk joined to engineers to help. Run tesla motors. You've all heard of tesla motors right. Well this is where. Musk was integral and designing the first electric car. There's no doubt the electric car is the car of the future. But his first car the he designed was the tesla roadster as we are all aware of the tesla has become one of the world's most popular and coveted car brands and is still growing in popularity in the united states and in many different countries tesla and the electric car are taking over but we must never forget about musk's early interest in reading philosophy science fiction and fantasy novels and how that played a big role. I mean a huge role in the inventor that he is today. It is reflected in his sense of idealism and concern with human progress. He aims to work in the areas he has identified as crucial to our future specifically the internet. The transition to renewable energy sources and space colonization and. Ilan has been all over the media. Making three podcast episodes on the joe rogan experience while the first one in which he smoked. Marijuana was pretty funny but in a maximum article. I found this elon. Musk's third appearance on the joe rogan. Experience podcast the genius. Tesla and spacex. Ceo did reveal intriguing plans for a floating tesla. Musk revealed that the long awaited second generation tesla roadster could have a space x package that would allow it to hover at a limited altitude above the ground.

Musk started twenty twenty with a worth of about twenty seven billion dollars and was barely in the top fifty richest people then in july of twenty twenty. Musk past warren buffett. The great billionaire to become the seventh richest person in november. Musk raced past bill gates to become the second richest person. Musk has gained more wealth over the past twelve months then gates his entire net worth of one hundred and thirty two billion dollars and according to cnbc elon. Musk just became the richest person in the world. With a net worth of more than one hundred and eighty five billion dollars alone recently had a new marker for his wealth and that is so cool because of all his inventions and his time spent caring and wanting the united states and the world to move ahead has made a name for himself. There is no doubt an increase in tesla's share price pushed. Musk past jeff bezos of amazon. Who had been the richest person since two thousand seventeen. You see musk's wealth surge over. The past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list and history but why because he is investing in the future. It marks a dramatic financial turnaround for the famed entrepreneur. Because he cares about what happens in our future so with all his wealth experimentation and knowledge elon. Musk is our future and for those. That are young enough to dream about being an elon. Musk it must start with your curiosity with reading and learning more and more about new and different things and that i want for you and your children now and in the future.
Cardiologists say iPhone 12 could pose danger to people with defibrillators, pacemakers
"This was also shared on the The discord we talked about this a couple of weeks back just kind of highlighting it as a news article but now there's actually been a little bit more study into this phenomenon. I'm not going to go too much into this Henry ford cardiologists find iphone. Twelve magnet deactivates implantable cardiac devices. So this has been just a just a little bit more medical data a little bit more. Study this is from february fourth. They held a media briefing. I'm talking about differ. Defin- brewers and the iphone twelve. And that this is a little bit different than what apple was trying to claim apple. Apple's claim is. We've always said that you know the electrical and magnetic interference from pocket. Computers is a concern for people who have pace makers other durable medical equipment. And so they they don't feel that there's any additional I'm totally paraphrasing apple. Pr here and please don't take this is like this is a direct quote from apple and they said like whatever So from what. I read on apple. Pr apple forums is. Apple doesn't feel like they need to make any additional disclosure to the safety of their products. Cardiologists are are pointing to a slightly different relationship because the iphone twelve Magnets for their wireless charging system are more powerful that this is a slightly different situation than previous generations of iphone. We mentioned it. We had a very similar conversation. When this i was brought up that this could be an issue. My dad doesn't have a pacemaker. But is absolutely that person who would take a smaller phone and put it in a shirt or jacket pocket. So i feel this is just another piece of evidence. A proper group of cardiologists held a medical briefing. That you can share with your family and friends just two point two. Hey you have a pacemaker. If you buy the iphone twelve keep it in your pocket. And then we're good. But i do feel like a just a little additional disclosure. A conversation seems to be warranted. As the design of the iphone twelve is different than the than the magnetic design of the iphone eleven. I think that's fair. It's not a don't buy almost gosh so scary. It's gonna kill your grandparents. That's not it. But i feel like yeah. It's fair to have that conversation with your family and friends
Mustang Mach-E First Drive Review - Ford's All-New New Electric Crossover
"The car driving today is unique for four if their ever history fully electric battery electric vehicle designed from the ground up to be electric unlike some other early eighties like the nissan leaf. You know where. They decided to go for efficiency. Make it as a compact car for decided to go for the heart of the market. They what they really did was. They learned from tesla looked at. You know what tesla was doing. And how tesla was succeeding. That was making cars. Were cool looking. At cool technology had good performance And offer great range and ford decided to start with a compact midsize. upper compact. You know mid size crossover market is today. That's what people wanna buy It's getting close to suv's and crossovers are about forty percent of the us car market now and so the originally conceived this vehicle announced early twenty seventeen as a more conventional tross over. It was basically you know it was going to be front wheel drive. More something like Electric version of the escape Which is very popular compact. Crossover for four but late. Two thousand seventeen. They decided to completely change direction. They realized that that was not a car that was going to get people excited to buy an ev from ford. And so what they did instead was. They said okay. What's our what's our icon. What what is the vehicle that really gets people excited and within ford. The mustang is considered the heart and soul of the brand. It's by no means the best selling car but is the car they build that is representative of so many things for fun to drive. You know the racing history. Ford ford's racing. History goes back to before there was a ford motor company. Henry ford won the money that he used to start ford motor company by winning a race winning the vanderbilt cup and so the The they decided to use mustang as the inspiration for this car and and the end You know what they came up with was a crossover that has mustang design cues but they also knew that if they were gonna put the mustang badge on it that they needed to make it something that would fail. Drive a mustang. It's obviously a car. That's much taller than a traditional mustang. But because it's electric. That has the battery in the floor underneath the floor. That's still gives it a relatively low center of gravity. And they put a lot of the people who've worked on mustang over the years on this program and to try to infuse it with as much mustang dna performance dna and And they territory an attitude as they could and so they came up with something that has echoes of mustang but is also very practical car. For the first time ever you know traditionally mustangs the backseat and the mustang is not a place where you where you wanna be if you're an adult. It's fine for kids but know it's always been a two plus two this is a real five-seater got four doors. Got a hatchback big big cargo area in the back. And it's something that can be used as a family car but it also has a lot of that mustang. feel but it's also extremely modern. So you got things like the fifteen and a half inch touchscreen display in the center here with their sink for a system on it. They designed a completely new user interface for this car and this is going to be spreading out to two other vehicles as well. Unlike tesla Four as ford decided that you're not going to have everything in this touchscreen interface here They did retain a an instrument. Cluster display up in the front here directly in of the driver. Which i think is where it belongs. Yes that gives you information like your speed. Your driver systems systems like dab cruise control and lane keeping assist your range information. All that is right in front of you in the in the user interface here it's designed to be basically three areas three zones of this. You have the main zone up top here which is whatever the current application that you're using right now. It's navigation for dr route but You've also got these cards down here in this lower in this middle section here which represent the other applications that you've used most recently so if you go to things like you know right now there's an iphone connected to this which is being used as the phone is a key system and that brought up the the apple carplay interface and you can see that when it carplay interface came up navigation. Went down here into the most recently used slot in the in the cart section. So i can quickly get back to toggle back and forth. I can go to the ford pass out for charging. If i want to go to tap that and you see the Carplay and the navigation ford passer still down here instantly accessible so the system learns based on your behavioral based on what you're doing and so i'm going to go back here was also At the top here have Your your picture. You can have profiles from multiple drivers in here. Each driver can have Is tied to their own kifah program it to the fourth pass app on your phone use. Use the phone as your key with bluetooth belly when you tap on that it shows you all the apps that are available to the nice thing that they've done with his user interfaces. They've kept everything close to the surface close to the top so you're not drilling down through multiple layers of display multiple layers of interface. To get to the things that you want to use. It's all up close so right now. there's three three drive modes that are available right now in whisper mode which is the most economical mode the quietest mode the engage mode is the default mode. That's kind of a nice balance between the better better efficiency but also more performance and then unbridled is the the most performance oriented mode and what changes in between each of those modes. Is you get changes in the searing. Feel the amount of steering effort and you know for an suv. This thing has excellent steering response during feel to changing the drive modes also changes the accelerator pedal response so in whisper mode. It gives you a little bit slower response when you tip into the accelerator pedal A little smoother. Calmer more comfortable feel to it But then when you go through engage and finally to unbridled each time it gets a little more aggressive both with the the tip in response so that you know when you when you hit the accelerator pedal. It'll respond quicker jump off line faster in unbridled than it does in either engage or whisper but it also does the same in reverse for regenerative braking so in whisper mode you get more aggressive region or rather than Br bridled mode. You get more aggressive regenerative braking than you do in whisper mode or engage mode and you also have the option here separately for one pedal driving And you can set that and it'll stay remember what your settings were So it always goes back to whatever your last settings were so one pedal driving is great especially if your stop and go traffic in city traffic or On a on a on a highway even in stop and go traffic jam because it will bring the car to a complete stop when you lift off the accelerator. So i have not touched the brakes and the car coming to a complete stop here and then accelerating nice. Quick celebration puts you back seat. It's not as fast right now. As the tesla performance moats. But this also isn't the highest performance version. That's that's gonna be the. Gt the machi. Gt comes out in the summer. Twenty twenty one will be the version that goes up against the likes of tesla model y performance with it's insane mode the gt's going to accelerate zero to sixty in the in the mid three second range. Which will put it comparable to the shelby. Gt five hundred. Which has the giant supercharged v. Eight engine when i drove the machi earlier this afternoon on the auto cross course that one we drove was The rear wheel drive version. And what was interesting about it. Was you know they. They really tuned the suspension field. To give it more of that mustang. Feel so we get some off throttle oversteer. Can you can control the attitude of the car really well with the accelerator pedal the ride quality and this despite the performance capability is actually quite good. It's very comfortable but it's still got really good body control one other aspect does change when you change the drive. Moans is the sound there's the unbridled gives you a little bit more aggressive sound to engage. It's a little bit more toned down and whispered as you would expect. it's very quiet
Dr. Fata: King Midas
"Four months later in september of two thousand eleven. Dr fatah's practice hired a new office manager. George karachay. i was born in detroit Living near Actually motown on west grand boulevard. George was in his early fifties tall with dark hair and glasses. He had worked in healthcare for more than thirty years and from an early age health. Care was very important to him. He used to play on this on the lawn of henry ford hospital when i was a kid and i often wondered what was inside. What did they do their before. He's interview hit. Never heard of doctor fata but of course he knew all about crittenden hospital. Where dr fata sent his patients. It had a reputation for serving posh clientele. George was honored to accept. Dr fatah's offer. The scale of the office was bigger than anything managed before he knew that a lot was expected of him but he was excited to be part of it. All the position was a rare. Find a six figure salary which is a lot for an office manager great healthcare coverage a twenty minute commute for his first day at his new job. He left his house early enough to leave. Plenty of time to get settled. My best sudan and is dr fodder said you know. We're very formal here. And so i. I remember driving to the clinic and i saw it for the first time on the outside nasa site to see it was grand on the outside with its covered. Porch and windows on the outside michigan. Hematology oncology didn't look much like a healthcare center it look like some sort of ski lodge some some resort. You see on side of a mountain where the rich and famous went to doing their winters. So i like this is incredible. The parking lot was already packed with cars when he made his way to the front of the building. I opened the door. And i was just in. Awe was on in so many different levels. The opulence of the center fifty foot ceilings grand piano artwork on the walls. Something that you would normally see at the detroit institute of arts. The soft lighting. The waiting rooms at were filled with fine furniture. It all looked more like the lobby of a swanky hotel. It was supposed to be the jewel of crittenden hospitals outpatient center and it really was. He looked around at the staff doctors nurses from other hospitals and universities all and crisply iron uniforms for marketable. George thought to see so many people from different disciplines all there to care for patients. Though george was new to the field of oncology. he wasn't a stranger to cancer. My own mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And i was taking care of her. While i was working for dr fata so i know what it's like to be given that news in a patient's room and to go through the caretaking of a patient and i really believed in the field of oncology and hematology as he was looking around taking it all in jordan started to feel a bit nervous. I day jitters. But he realized that he too got to be part of this impressive operation working alongside folks that were saving lives. I closed my eyes. And i said to myself remember this day. Remember this day right away. He was put to work meeting. The staff getting to know the equipment around dr fatah's four clinics the infusion room where patients received chemotherapy was a sight to see. It was like a parking lot for chemo. Chairs kema chairs and rooms cumin chairs in the you had single a chairs you had once in a group with four and time. It was far as the eye could see. Saw the sea of chemo chairs. The waiting room stayed filled with at least thirty patients at a time. Busy was an understatement. Barber shop where one person is in a chair and then sweep off. The air and the next person would get in a chair. There was never a moment where that chair wasn't being used and running and humming and the equipment and spies all had to be there or else machine. I called it would start to break down.
"henry ford" Discussed on A Biography Podcast - Life Histories of Successful People
"Treatment of edsel had caused his death after his son's death. Henry ford was never the same even though he took up the presidency of his company after his son's death he wasn't mentally capable of holding that post after all. A series of strokes in the nineteen thirties had affected his mental ability. It was only worsened by his son's death so just two years. After he took up the presidency he handed it over to his grandson then. He retired to his estate in dearborn where he died in. Nineteen forty seven aged eighty. three fact. you probably didn't know the nineteen twenty. Six ford introduced the five day. Forty hour workweek concept but he did not do it out of charity. Ford was first and foremost a businessman. He knew that if he gave his workers two days of recreation they would spend more time traveling and shopping thus a car would become necessary for many people and this would lead to more sales moreover giving them two days of recreation would also make them more productive at work so he introduced a five day workweek in his company throughout his life. Henry ford was a strong advocate of peace. He hated wars. So when world war two began in nineteen thirty nine. He tried to keep the us from entering the war but when japan attacked pearl harbor. The ford motor company started making jeeps tanks and airplanes for the usa. Henry ford was america's second billionaire. The first billionaire was john d. Rockefeller purchased a weekly newspaper called the dearborn independent in one thousand nine hundred. Eighteen ford published articles regularly from nineteen nineteen to nineteen twenty seven in this newspaper under ford's publication. The newspaper reached a readership of nine hundred. Thousand people in nineteen twenty five henry. Ford had always been anti semitic a hater of jews. He published articles in his newspaper. Condemning jews which were read by many people around the world henry ford's model t was similar to the volkswagen of germany. Volkswagen was also meant to be an automobile for everyone. Not just a rich. The term volkswagen itself literally translates to people's car. So hitler came to respect ford. Hitler and ford also shared the same opinion about us that they were responsible for all the evil in the world. Moreover ford was a famous american. Who advocated anti semitism. Ford was a huge blow to people who thought that antisemitism could not exist in a democratic nation like the usa. In addition to that.

He might have made some bad decisions in the latter part of his life. But the changes he brought upon this world are hard to ignore. It is thanks to henry ford. That cars became affordable to middle class people. The increase in the number of cars created other businesses like gas stations which employ a lot of people moreover it also held hotels and restaurants to flourish thereby improving the economy as a whole henry.
Interview with Adam Lowry and Eric Ryan
"If, you're looking to start a business in the late nineteen nineties. You probably didn't have to spend a Lotta time convincing friends and family that it was a good time to go into tech. This was the height of the DOT com bubble and it seemed like the future was literally being written by companies like, Google and Yahoo Ebay and Amazon. So it can be kind of hard to imagine why to twentysomethings who lived in San Francisco in the nineteen nineties would survey this promising landscape and say. You know what the world really needs right now. Soap. So that will do a good job cleaning your kitchen counter or your toilet, but that won't destroy the planet in the process. And that is exactly what Adam lowry and Eric Ryan set out to sell in two thousand the very year that dot com bubble burst. And the company they founded method with its sleek bottles and products smelling like cucumber or bamboo it actually went on to compete with some of the big is soap companies in the world but before they went into business together, Ataman Eric were actually childhood friends. They met when they were kids maybe twelve or thirteen years old because they were both super into sailing and both of their families worked in the auto industry which Adam says was pretty much what everyone did where they grew up in Grosse Pointe Michigan. Almost everyone that I can remember with their families were involved in I. Think Eric Your family. Yes. My great-grandfather dropped out of pharmacy school and moved to Detroit to work for Henry for five dollars a day and ultimately Henry Ford. I've I've has some Ford stock that was when Henry was still running the company by my grandfather. My grandfather and grandfather together started a machine and stamping. If you ever see like this giant presses that come down, so they would make a lot of the parts that went on the automobiles. In so I kind of grew up in the shadows of my great grandfather and grandfather being these entrepreneurs who created something from nothing. At Eric both went off to college was in the early nineties. Adam went to the west coast. He studied chemical engineering at Stanford and Eric went to the East Coast and studied business at the University of Rhode Island. Both of them were actually recruited by the university's sailing teams. They were serious sailors and to be clear in college. Adam and Eric, didn't really keep in touch. They were the kind of. Friends who were happy to hang out and catch up just whenever they were back in Michigan. So after graduating atom stayed in the bay area to work for the. Carnegie. Institute of Science was doing research on climate change and Eric got a job in advertising and eventually he made his way out to San Francisco as well and shortly after that they both just happened to run into each other on a flight. I, think it was Thanksgiving if I'm not mistaken one year, maybe ninety, seven, ninety, eight, I walk on a plane I see Eric and I didn't know that he was living in San Francisco. You only move there the couple of weeks a couple of weeks earleir right and so there was an open seat I ended up sitting next to him on the plane. We for five hours got all caught up. It turned out we were living on the exact same block just out of. Pure coincidence and I was living in a flat with four other guys from Stanford and Eric was living by himself in a one bedroom and so when one of those guys rotated out, we invited Eric to move into the apartment and then we re just one you could actually live in San. Francisco for a reasonably low amount of rent I paid six hundred dollars a month in rent. Oh my God this is nineteen, Ninety, seven, Ninety, eight. Amazing. So you move into this group house. Doing doing your early twenties or whatever, and the house was just like a six guys in a presumably not super clean. It was exactly as clean as you would expect it to be got it. All right and I mean, did either of you at that time in your minds were either of thinking. Business or you just kind of grinding away doing your day to day jobs. For me personally I I, knew since the third grade I wanted to be an entrepreneur obviously annoying neighborhood kid who's constantly selling buttons or anything else I could. So I just I always knew I wanted to start a company and I loved I fell in love with advertising and branding but I knew it's pretty uncommon as an entrepreneur you're first company will be successful. So I kind of wanted to build a little bit of a safety net of a career, but I was constantly noodling on ideas for me personally just coming up with the right one that would eventually take
"henry ford" Discussed on Dark Horse Entrepreneur
"He lived on this great planet from eighteen sixty, three to nineteen, forty, seven from Henry Ford and his achievements. We can learn so many things about what success is like. Success is not a dependent. He Henry Ford's father gave him a pocket watch when he was only twelve by the age of fifteen Ford was disassembling and reassembling the time pieces of many friends and neighbors right dozens of times put pulling it apart put them back together and this gained him the reputation of being the watch repairman and by fifteen, he had built his first steam engine and by twenty four, he had built a four cycle motor. Success is not formal education. Ford's formal education was rumored to be about only three years however, in some of my research that I've go go poke around the Internet I did find reheat studied bookkeeping at Goldsmith Bryant and Stratton Business College in Detroit shortly after his time in Detroit when he was a printing as a machinist but even still right, that's not engineering. Success is fueled by failure and cooperation. After two unsuccessful attempts to establish a company to manufacture automobiles four teamed up with the likes of see Harold Willis and engineer Henry Leland a machinist, an entrepreneur Tom Cooper, a racing cyclist, and Alec Alexander Malcolm sent a Detroit coal miner. Now, this like Unlikely Band of of of folks came together. In, the Ford Motor Company was finally incorporated in Nineteen. Oh three with Henry, Ford is the Vice President and Chief Engineer Success is problem solving by early nineteen, Fourteen Ford's innovations in assembly lines had resulted in monthly labor turnover of about forty to sixty percent in his factory. He had to hire three hundred people just to keep one hundred on the floor. Now, this was largely because of the unpleasant monetary, it unpleasant monotony right of UNAV- assemblies, chunk, a junk junk, the same thing over and over and over again and this work. was also compounded by the fact that production quotas kept being increased a directly assigned to the worker. So. Ford met this difficulty by really odd way of doing it. He doubled the wage to. Of what it was to about five dollars, and then he turned around and cut an hour off the workday. So now his workers are getting paid double anyone else in the market, which was five dollars a day. Now, this moved while Unorthodox proved very well. I'll even say extremely profitable because instead of having a forty to sixty am do. Along I'm my eyeteeth can't see my tongue and I keep tripping. It, it proved to be very profitable because instead of having that forty to sixty percent employee turnover the best. Brightest mechanics in Detroit all flocked to Ford. How's that? Helpful? Well, this brought him the cream of the crop, the best in human capital the best in expertise this raise the productivity and lowered training costs. Success is bucking the odds in nineteen o five lays German. Village up to fifty starter companies a year trying to get into the automobile business and here's where Ford succeeded through the steps we already shared. Success is doing what you feel inside is right despite all the haters or saying you see the Wall Street. Journal called Ford's Daily Wage plan quote an economic crime unquote and his critics heaped Ford `ISMs on with equal contempt right meanwhile, he in Chicago a Chicago Ohio newspaper editorialized the announcement of the of this wage plan as a shot like a blinding rocket through the dark clouds of the president industrial depression. Two sides of the coin I guess. So don't always listen to your haters. Success is having goals in seeking those who can help you with your goals. Remember as I mentioned back in episode eighteen goals say one on one and and check that out if you haven't listened to it already right. As noted earlier back in nineteen. Oh, three four teamed up with twelve people willing to invest about twenty eight, thousand dollars Indus Fledgling Motor Company at that point Ford had produced the model nine which was then taken on tour around the United States to make the Ford brand well known then in Nineteen Oh eight Ford debuted the model t nineteen o nine four decided to only manufacturer one type of Car Yep that recently introduced model t. and as we all know he also gave me your choice of colors you can have black. Or Black. This in. So many other factors like this change automotive history forever. So let let's let's review that real quick. Shall we success is not age dependent successes not formal education dependent success is fueled by failure in cooperation success is problem solving success is bucking the odds. Success is doing what you feel is right despite all your haters in success is having goals and seeking out those that can help you with them and then finding what you can do to help them. Tomorrow we're going to chat about the purpose of Jack Shit I know I know you object to this but that's exactly why we need to chat about it. All right. Would you need to do? That's right.

Curtis Saunders and his 1914 Model T
"This is Robert loss of welcome to another episode of cars that matter today we're joined by Dr Curtis Saunders, Mechanical Engineer Researcher at Johns Hopkins University Tower Things in Baltimore today, Curtis agreed Robert. It's a beautiful sunny day here in Curtis is here because he's the owner of a nineteen fourteen Ford model t now I guess I could make all kinds of jokes curtis about how you really need a PhD in mechanical engineering to work on one of these. But I'm sure it doesn't hurt. I we're going to dig into the history of the Ford model teachers to understand a little bit better. Why was such important automobile? The Ford model t is often named the car the century. Obviously, it's an important car. Why is it important to you? I should say while I'm a mechanical engineer I've always loved history. I'm always been a student of history and history has always been a passion of mine. So the model t important to to me. One of the reasons is just the impact it had on American history and just the general in addition just to manufacturing in general the manufacturing methods behind the model. t some of the things that Henry Ford merely pioneered with the car I was just really fast anyhow had in areas as well as the impact car itself had in American culture from what I understand. They made about fifteen million and they had quite a lifespan and first one came. Out in Nineteen Oh eight is that right? Yes. That is correct Kinda wrap things up by one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven when by that time was almost as much of an antique as it is today it's amazing how long the car ran and even through its cycle while the appeared. So the car changed a lot of the underlying the chemical structure while had some changes remain basically the same, the same four cylinder engine, the chew speed transmission. The bones are really did run twenty years I remember years and years ago in my former life I worked with the operating engineers, UCLA. What do we have these emergency generator rooms now ucla campus was built back in the nineteen twenties and we actually had an emergency generator that was still powered by a Model T. engine this back in the eighties imagine that that old engine was deemed reliable enough and competent enough to be working all those decades later. Really Testament to the Durance of that particular design you talk about Henry, Ford and how the model t was really the first mass produced car but I almost get the feeling. Henry could have been making washing machines or vacuum cleaners in a lot of ways the model t was sort of a test bed for the whole production line process actually rates moving assembly line process was not unique to model ts and applied to so many different types of products from airplanes, trains, cars, like you said, also goods washing machines TV's. Of that type of process, we take it for granted now, but someone had to think of it I in there had to be a pioneer that type of industry that really started this whole thing not only introducing a whole new way of making things it was done. So efficiently and relatively inexpensively that I gave any American with a halfway decent paying job the opportunity to own a car or it's eight a here's rolling car off the assembly. Line every ninety seconds from what I understand though maybe you can correct me if I'm wrong the model t was such a grand vision of Henry Ford's that he actually set up manufacturing facilities or plants all around the country, and even in other comments, he truly believed it was the car for the masses I. Don't think he really viewed it as just something for a specific region or even a specific country her specific time thought he'd really. distill down essential components vehicle and that that's what anyone in the world would what I guess. There was more than just one model T. everything from pickup trucks to delivery vans they made a whole bunch of them didn't they? Absolutely, there is various types of cars from to Cedars. Cedars even enclosed cars and open cars later and the whole line of trucks. You can even buy a model t rolling chassis and build your own body for it. If you didn't like what Fort is offering, you could just build your own. You're not even limited cars like you said, the power plant could by the Ford engine, the Ford, power plant and just apple sorts of other applications that would make a nice Margarita blender wouldn't it just about the right amount of horsepower to get that is just just right. Everybody knows what one looks like but I suspect most people don't really understand what it takes to. Make one move got a little engine. What is like three liter inline four or something like that it's a little inline four and it has a two speed transmission. What's the horsepower output on that engine? Would you figure it was rated at twenty two and a half horsepower? Wow. Okay. There's a lot of lawnmowers. Today might a riding mower hardware store that has more horsepower than this little novelty
Wayne Carini from 'Chasing Classic Cars' and F40 Motorsports
"This is Robert Ross with another episode of cars that matter and today my guest is Wayne Carini who everybody knows Wayne Wayne's the host of chasing classic cars and incredibly Popular Program about finding gyms in the rough Wayne's also owner of f Forty Motor Sports Portland Connecticut I'm going to call that as day job and what a job it is Wayne Welcome to the program during us to be with. Obviously we're talking coast to coast I'm here in Los Angeles, and you're on the eastern side of the US and were doing this by way of Zoom. So it's not in the studio, but it allows some long distance conversation really in much the same way that you probably deal with. So many of the collectors nowadays things have certainly changed for all of us in the way that we communicate and weighed. The options are being held virtual car shows everything's changed slightly only. It's just for short periods. We'll talk about some of those things both the short-term effects maybe some of the long term positive benefits that come from this, it's hard to imagine there are any, but they're actually might be but instead of going forward in time, let's go back in time for a second. Let me just ask you the obvious. Question a lifetime love affair with cars, full classics, postwar sports, and racing cars, and probably even some modern collectibles. How did this car fixation begin when I was born into it? My father was founder the model a restorers club America back in nineteen fifty one year I was born cars were basically in our family from the beginning and then my dad restored cars for a living whether it was Duesenberg? Packard? As or buicks whatever they were my cousin built hot rods in a lean to next to my father's shop, and then a mile up the road was candy pools sports car shop where they had about every type sports car in the World Men Candy Pool is very famous race car drivers. So there was race cars, Ferraris Maserati. Oscars every type of car. That was rare stuff back then and I think that's how I got my ashes for everything to do with automobiles was brought up on every type of automobile. That's quite a broad swath. You Talk About Your Dad restoring everything from model as to Duisenburg's there couldn't be a wider gulf between those two and it's interesting. You mentioned that let's drill down into. That for just a second Wayne I often wonder the model a was such a ubiquitous machine, obviously the model t and then the model put Henry Ford on the map with a little company we call the Blue Oval but all the guys that actually treasure those cars and restore them and kept him alive for so many decades when they were well past. Their prime. It's very rare to see those cars any longer they sorta seems almost evaporated off the surface the earth they've become pretty popular again though in that era forcible way to get into the hobby and you could basically model for today from a catalog. So because of the ease of getting a apart the east of the restoration and the fun factor. With the driving aspect of it, I mean, these cars are a Lotta Fun to drive. Easy on reasonably priced. So we see model as actually their value and increasing summer bar. That's a great harbinger of things to come then because they really were sort of the cornerstone of the collector hobby back before guys can afford their full classics and all the fancy stuff from Europe. I starting going to Hershey with my dad and nine hundred, fifty, seven was six years old I think her she started either in fifty five, hundred, fifty, six does either liver fear second year, and then probably the third year I was there it became part. Of Our family, my dad created the model, a restorers club. He just come out of service in flight forty, eight and gentleman brought him a model a Ford to do some paint work on any restored to perfection for the gentleman brought it to local car show nine, hundred fifty and they wouldn't let him show it because they said that's just some old used car as nothing special and he got upset about that and went home and created the model, every stores America which thousands of people all over the world still supporting that club.
Deliberate flooding could recharge an Idaho river
"The Henry's Fork River in southeastern Idaho provides water to nearby farms and at the major fly fishing destination. But as the climate warms, water, levels in the river are becoming less predictable. Sometimes, water is plentiful. But earlier snow melt and more erratic rainfall can lead to shortages later in the summer when the water's needed most. Christina Morris is with the nonprofit Henry Ford. Foundation, she says one way to help. Balance out these highs and lows is to capture water when it's abundant and use it to recharge natural groundwater reserves, we flood, agricultural land, or like a pond or a lake, and allow that surface water to infiltrate and percolate down into the aquifer to raise the water table. Models of the Henry's fork show that if the returned location is close enough to the stream, much of that water will seep back into the river later in the season, where it will be available to farms and fish, we found not when you recharge within a mile of the river than we get ninety percent of that water back into the river, so she says it's one promising way to store water and maintain stream flows when water is needed most
Harry and Meghan Give Up Royal Titles and Forgo State Funding
"Prince hearing his wife Megan will stop using their primary royal titles giving up state funding and we're paying at least one three million dollars funding from taxpayers money over there used to refer brush their official residence at Windsor Castle under agreement announced by Buckingham Palace just the day before yesterday with an update let's check in with British historian and biographer on royal family that Henry Ford and everyone in between road companion books to the Netflix series the crown Robert Lacey this is been from front page stories and lead news on television all weekend long among other things what's your take on the unusual deal negotiated by aids to the the queen Queen Elizabeth two a prince Harry and other senior family members intended to what end the crisis that erupted ten eleven days ago well one it's been tougher than Harry expected I think and the some control to see about it over here because they have been told that they have to give up the royal titles of HRH I mean Harry and make and have two titles if you like at the moment the X. his or her Royal Highness that's not so much a title as a style the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the significance of the H. R. H. as we call it over here is the when Edward the eighth was sent into exile over abdication in nineteen thirty six he was allowed to keep these HRH interestingly his American wife the Duchess would would not allowed to be an HRH and then more recently when a prince Andrew was sent out to out to doctor is for he's a television interview and he's involved with Jeffrey obscene and also some controversial business dealings he was taken off the royal payroll but he remains to this day I HRH and there was some controversy in the papers this weekend when there was a picture of Megan and Henry who had the HRH taken away their route but the queen went to church with Andrew but he's still an HRH in his in so would be what we ourselves are not quite clear what's going on here he tried prince here to clear it up for the first time since the story began to unfold he spoke publicly I'm sure you got to see him I think was Saturday night he was speaking in front of one of his organizations a fundraiser something like that here's prince Harry explaining publicly for the first time why he and his wife Meghan made the decision to live part time among other things are there in England and over here in North America and Canada maybe the USA the areas the decision I made for my wife and all you have to

The two were on a course that would mean a certain head on collision so quickly. The captain signaled to approaching vessel. Change your course ten degrees west. The reply came blinking back for the thickening fog that evening. You Change Your course ten degrees east. The captain became insulted. Pulled rank as angrily sent a message back. I'm a sea captain with thirty thirty five years of experience. Change your course. Ten degrees west well out hesitation ladies and gentlemen to signal flashback wreck. I'm a seaman fourth class.

He sent his his final warning that foggy night. This is now you listen here. I'm a fifty thousand ton freighter. Change your course ten degrees west now my friends. A simple message came blinking back that foggy. Good evening I'm a lighthouse. I'm a lighthouse else. Change Your course now ladies and gentlemen like that see captain in this true story we as human beings need to change course when we are confronted confronted with the Truth and twenty three years ago. Now I was one evening confronted with an incredible truth as I learned about the awesome love. The God of this universe has for you and me his creation. Now grant me the privilege. Editors indeed a privilege for me to be here this morning. Grant me the probe's of taking you on a spiritual journey a journey that forever changed the course of my life for those of you who may not know the Adolph Coors Company located in Golden Colorado has today grown into one of the largest argest breweries and the entire world. My great-grandfather Adolf Herman Joseph Coors the founder of our brewery. Doc lost both parents when he was fifteen. He was trained in his native Germany to be a brewer in an eighteen. Sixty eight with with just seven cents to his name with a dream in his heart one day Paul stowed away aboard board a steamer headed for America and he landed in Baltimore and to make a long story short several several years later in a small mining town of Golden Colorado along with a business partner they formed what is then what was was then known. As the shooter Coors Brewing Company. It began to sell their beer to the miners working in the mining camps. Above this small town the brewery began to grow rapidly seven years. After they began their fledgling little company on May first eighteen eighty. My great grandfather bought his business partner out and formed. What is now known? All over the world is the coors brewing company. But in nineteen fourteen prohibition hit the State of Colorado prohibition became a National Law and in nineteen twenty nine. The depression hit America and my great grandfather saw his fledgeling. Little Brewery began to slip through his fingers and shortly thereafter. He took his own life. Why do I mention that because my great grandfather made a serious mistake that many people are making today and that is identify who they are in what they do? We need not identify who we are and what we do do because what we do can change. What do we need to do is we need a dentist who we are and what we are in here? We're not what we do. And September of Nineteen forty-five I was born into this family. A family man. I actually just a family much like yours. A family with grant hopes and a family with aspiring dreams. I believe he's Jomon growing up in this family. It was not long before I realized at how I was going to be judged now I was gonna fit into. This is marvellous family and looking around my family Paul. I realized I was going to fit in. Based upon. Three criterion number one education is premier importance in our family. My family places a premium on getting the best education you can hopefully. Hopefully it will be a chemical engineering degree. They also place a high emphasis on athletic ability. I come I'm from a family of unbelievable athletes. My father played semi pro baseball. He was one of the pioneer developers of skiing being in the state of Colorado. He formed the Aspen Skiing Corporation back in the late forties early fifties and then physical appearance is extremely important in our family. These were the three criterion upon how I was going to be judged and it's tough growing up in a family when you are are judged upon performance. I love you if I love you. If you get good grades I love you. If you look good I love you. If you perform perform well on the athletic field every Saturday and Sunday you know of all the things that I learned as a young child growing up in this family the one thing I wish they would have taught me was this. What good is it going to be? If you gain the whole world but in a process of gaining the world you end up losing your soul or what can we give in exchange for our souls. I wish somebody had taught me as a young on boy. I wish they would have said this off. If you live for the next world you will gain this one in the deal but if you live strictly for this world you'll end up losing them. Both walking through a cemetery one day outside of the town of London England. I came across an interesting grave. Marker the grave marker. He said this she died for want of things. Turning to my right. Another grave. Marker presumably you that ever husband said this he died trying to give them to her she died for want of things and he died trying to give them. I'm to her I asked you. This is any rich person truly content. Henry Thoreau the great American poet. Once said a man is rich in proportion to the number of things he or she can afford to leave alone. How much money does it take for you and me to be happy? Just one more dollar just one more growing up in the family. I was in Namrd by successful businessmen and women and one day I came across a quote from John. D Rockefeller senior. That caught my attention. John D. Rockefeller senior just before he died said I have made billions but not one of these dollars brought me and he had snot one Henry Ford senior just before he died turned to a friend of is one day and he said I was happier when I was a mechanic and then Mr Vanderbilt cries out before his death he says the care of two two hundred million is enough to kill anyone. There's no pleasure in it now. Why were these obviously successful? Linda vigils able to admit there was something missing in their lives. Let me give you just a hand. My friends when we're born into this world we have a creator Creator in heaven who creates you and me. Batteries not

Good Okay incidentally. 1927 was a big year in terms of rubber importation which is actually actually bad for Ford's plan the proposed rubber cartel by Winston Churchill. Failed to get any other European countries on board so it crumbled beneath him causing the price rice of latex and rubber products to tumble To values lower than its previous record in one thousand nine ten at this point. It did not make any fiscal sense sense for four to continue with opening a plantation in the Amazon as importing rubber was not substantially cheaper. It was recommended that he just construct EH purchasing office instead but he decided he wasn't gonNA listen to any logical reason and what ahead with the plans to build the plantation anyway completely ignoring the supply and demand curve. Screw it. It's good good. I'm doing anyway. I'll see you in Brazil. The Ford put in order to purchase the land recommended to him by Larue and began seeking approval for the Brazilian plantation. At at this point it wasn't being built to save the company money or allowed for to be self sufficient. Ford was gonNA live out his own heart of darkness. Fantasy by building an industrial Arcadia in the jungle Ford purchase. Two point five million acres of land for one hundred and twenty five thousand dollars on September Thirtieth Nineteen twenty seven and state legislators ratified the concession of land equal to about the size of the state of Connecticut. All in all it took less than three months to get the entire purchase riches approved proving to Ford that it was much easier to become a global powerhouse than just the national one. Yeah just buy some land. I some land. I guess the Ford Motor Company has always been filled with rivalries and of course they were fair share at the time his son Edsel who's also an executive afford at the time was imaginative and creative and Ford hated that about Ford preferred Henry Bennett and Henry Ford made it very clear who has favorites were at times he would intentionally Ashley Dismantle edsels work behind his back just to make him angry while Bennett received the constant stream praise. What a Dick? What a day? It's like taking your kids uh-huh but now Bennett was needed back. In Dearborn to rule the factories with an iron anti union fist so he was granted a protege. A man named Blakeley was brought on and found himself immediately visiting a city about one hundred miles away from the proposed site of Ford's industrial city. He quickly gained a reputation among both his co workers workers and among the city as a drunkard and exhibitionists his favorite pastime in Brazil was making love to his wife in full view of a taxi cab station so everyone could see. He was reckless in intense. Just like Bennett. which was exactly why Ford loved him? Cool Guy Cool guy but this is like this stuff that we're talking about almost one hundred years later. Can you imagine all the other stuff that he did that. We're that didn't last one hundred years. I mean he was probably like doing that thing where he left us. Parking lights or Hazard Lights on a park where he wanted. He was probably given people one star reviews on Heuberger even though they were totally fine he was He those the only two dickerson moves. I can think of because you're not take your guy. After the land had been purchased purchased Henry Ford immediately placed blakely in charge despite unanimous disapproval of blakely from everyone around him. Ford selected him to head the plantation tation and in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight blakely loaded up to large cargo ships with enough equipment and supplies to establish a small town. They bought the ships used from a great the shipping company as Henry. Ford was a strong believer in recycling again. Complicated Gag among the ship was also a decently sized crew afford employees and other miscellaneous fellows including the ex sheriff of Kalamazoo every time he the sheriff. Yeah well I got fired from being share for Kalamazoo I guess. I'm going to go down to Brazil. I hear that you can have six with your wife in front of a taxi station. Ford's Great Endeavour was all. Aw coming together. He had made smaller versions of its plan work in the states but now he was going to try to build a city that house twenty five thousand employees and another one one hundred thousand residents that could be self sufficient the New York Times estimated that the plant would be capable of producing upwards of six billion in pounds of rubber per year enough to make one billion four tires. That's a lot of cars cars. Once they arrived they decided they would settle title in a small city named Boa Vista. They were greeted by a few small huts but decided they would deal with the squatters after they had established the plantation. Never mind that those squatters were really the ten thousand people already live. They're kind of like mountain although there probably kinder finder to the Iron Mountain people these people. The Ford crew immediately found a problem. Though the two merchant ships they arrived in the far and Ormoc really cool name. Ah We're nearly two hundred fifty feet long and fifty feet across much larger than the shallow canals could allow and worst of all their. I've during during the dry season idiots Amazon River basin seas anywhere between sixty to one hundred inches brain Paul each year majority of which is during the rainy rainy season but blakely had not only missed time their arrival with the weather but he also managed to arrive during a severe drought so water levels were at an all time. Low basically the two ships and their crew and their thirty eight hundred tons of equipment were stranded just outside the entrance. The Ford Plant Paradise. This ships had to be unloaded onto smaller ships just to reach Boa Vista which took weeks and this caused the crew to get restless every day. They were nasty accidents in small scuffles on deck on the final day of unloading their cargo one crew member known as sailors. The dish it was on deck of the Ormoc while teasing firemen. Patrick apparently stace opened his mouth when he wasn't meant to and the next next thing he knew firemen. Patrick was charging him with an iron bar. Took a step back to dodge the attack. He fell into an open hatch. Above above the cargo. Hold Pauling about twenty five feet and fracturing his skull and that would not be the last major injury that would happen in the pursuit of Portland. The ships Eh arrived to bring quote redemption to the Amazon yet. It had taken almost until the end of January for them to finally unload. They had been there for three months and there were finally authored freaking ships but that was the least of their worries. It wasn't until they finally unloaded. That trouble really began. And that's blew a pickup next week on par to four Lancia when Henry Ford went to Brazil to try and start a utopia.
Henry Ford's Rubber Utopia
"It all started in in nineteen twenty five. Henry Ford was having lunch and his Dearborn Michigan Mansion with his good friend business partner entire magnate Harvey firestone Harvey. RV and Ford had been friends and partners since Ford started building cars decades earlier. So yeah just remember like he invented the model t which I like cheap car and basically he brought the car to the mass. Exactly Mr Firestone had begun ranting this time primarily focused on the impending rubber cartel that had been proposing England by one Winston Churchill. I am not a crooked. You know that payments de Yeah with a cigar and he's like on this day I I am not a crook and it will live in infamy. Yep that's him. The purpose of also the was Churchill. The king no the purpose of the rubber cartel was to limit the export of rubber in order to not overextend national resources. In case there was another World World War One thousand nine hundred eighty five probably a good idea but harvey firestone didn't like that idea. He believed that rubber prices were going to spike in the US as a result and therefore negatively affect firestone tires. Not some things never change Harvey firestone was not alone in this fear even even presidential candidate. FDR feared the effects of a rubber tariff. Remember was viewed. As the automotive industry's chokepoint seen as even more crucial than oil it's crazy. The the automotive industry relied on vulcanized rubber for literally everything from tires to hoses gaskets. A price increase of any kind could sink the young business so there there was a legitimate fear of turtles. Pain passing seems somewhat reasonable. Also it's it's it's kind of like okay here newsflash guys. If you're listening to this this might lose some you know in. I believe in climate change. And it's SORTA like yeah making some changes like you know not dumping tons of poisons into rivers and stuff might be more expensive for some people but in the at the end of the day. It's good not to have poisoned rivers and it's also probably good to have like rubber to defeat the Nazis. Yeah Germany was totally destroyed and they were afraid of something all of Europe. Yeah they're afraid of something like that happening again because those wounds had not been healed all and Churchill was just saying like hey fellers hello. Hello how does he talk. Talk like this is how are we talk again elegant. Listen listen fellows. That women's of all are still fresh insulting. I say that maybe we just save some of US supplies in case of fruit bikes out to again rubber. Blow Hurrah. Yes that's always saying always saying. Hey guys the whole world was just at war four. I think it might happen again. Maybe we should just like chill and be ready and these guys are like a money so harvey firestone was fed up with living in constant fear of their so he decided the best course of action would be to grow his own rubber smart. This wasn't the first time he had some some crazy idea. In fact Harvey tried to declare economic independence from the UK and fly rubber under the American flag. A few years earlier but that was truly the ramblings of a madman who doesn't seem to understand that you can't just not claim another country's resources by saying this cheaper so I'm just going to say it's it's American now although now that I think back on it that's kind of how we did a lot of stuff so yeah but harvey actually had a plan. He decided that he was going to start his own plantation in Liberia where the conditions were almost perfect for growing rubber trees by keeping the production in house he could avoid all the access fees associated with importation from other countries. Henry Ford had also tried growing his own rubber a year earlier. In one thousand nine hundred eighty four he had purchased this large quantities of land in the Florida everglades only to eventually do nothing with them. It was cheaper for four to import. The rubber. The idea of dramatic price is increase was still only speculation. But Still Harvey's plans had peaked and reports interests and after the lunch meeting was over. He requested that it's personal aide aide Leopold would find out where the best place to grow rubber Leopold come over here boy. Where's the best place to go? Rob A AH go find out how Liberia was the obvious choice. Harvey firestone discovered. It had the perfect climate when he put his plantation there but unfortunately Henry Ford word was very very very racist and he would not dare step foot in such an uncivilised and African society so they came to the conclusion. I mean that the rubber should be grown where it originated in the Amazon. So rubber comes from both vines and trees and you let it grow and then when you chop it you squeeze the vines and Latex Literal Latex comes out trees yeah so it's a liquid and then they they put out onto like big flat drying areas than when it dries. You can pull it up like a sheet of Latex and then you take a bunch of latex yeah stack stack into bales. And then that's what gets shipped out to like Volkan Ization plants and stuff like that. So these plantations are really only concerned with drawing the vines and extracting latex from okay okay and Liberia had the per client. But what about the Amazon Amazon also. Very clearly great. Climate only problem. It's a lot harder harder to get into the rainforest than it is in Africa. Got You throughout the nineteenth century. The Amazon River Basin supplied all of the world's rubber and made up forty percent of Brazil's exports sports at the height of the rubber boom in the second half of the nineteenth century but the Amazon's rubber room quickly turned to bus as plantations in Asia and England. Were able to go. Rubber and much denser populations and much more efficiently in Amazon many natural species that are not present in other countries limit the growth of trees so but organizing united plantations and other countries the efficiency was greatly increased. Henry had another incentive to go to South America besides his racism in End Theodore Roosevelt's book through the Brazilian wilderness. He accounts his experiences traveling through the Amazonian rainforests. One of his most significant observations is that many fast-flowing rivers could provide an almost perfect power source for any industry bold enough to be born there. He claimed that the right kind of senators such his enterprising businessmen of foresight coolness and suggest city who would be willing to put migrants to work for an advantage that would be mutually beneficial will give rise to a a great industrial civilization money. If anyone thought they could fill that description it was Henry Ford art now. Henry Ford did not really make cars. Henry Ford thought that he made men the maker. Men's like me. This builder of meant the cars they produced produced were simply a byproduct of his training. He was praised as a sociologist manufacturer. If anyone could reshape the native Brazilians into prosperous factory workers it was Henry Ford. They don't want to be or so he thought they don't want that.
