"In the lancaster has a tail wheel. All the british aircraft have casteran tail wheels. The harvard during takeoff harvard cool. Stick right back in you. Lock the rudders to the tail wheel. And you get about fifteen degrees of control movement on that wheel right but once you go forward with the stick to lift up the tail the better be off the ground because now it's a caster and that's what you gotta remember when you land but the three c forty seven. The american aeroplanes all have locking tail wheels. Bj team does why. The brits of elected not to use a locking tail-wheel is beyond me but we just have to be carefully it'll ground. Loops occur after the tale of settled. You think your home free. And she's rolling down the runway. You've lost your vertical fin affect and your elevators aren't effective anymore you got breaks and power and rudder that's all you've gotten if if you can't keep it straight with the breaks you put on the power and if that doesn't work put on full power get off the ground and come back and try it again and this time the little more awake all this. Don't let your guard down. It's less than i'm hearing out of all this thing. This has been fantastic. And i can assure you that everybody that listens to this podcast ex to come out and check out the aircraft's get a ride in it. If they wanted to. There is a way for them to donate.

"Knew the rain was going to coventry. But they didn't want to reveal their hand now. What they did do was moved fighters from eleven group up to twelve group so they could catch these. People live at the german airmen coming back from the rate but they let the raid go. Yeah you know. Churchill took quite a beating over that but it was the right thing to do because they started locating the 'nigma friend of mine one of our members who lives in the states. he hasn't enigma machine. I got to see it and touch the dials on it. But this machine. Once they could crack the code they knew where the submarines were going to be by that time. The the canadian corvettes the ship. They had the as dick on it that they could also figure out the decks but the range in depth on the same reason they just dislodge. Instead of bypassing the submarines they were taken the convoys right into the packs so the corvettes could destroy them and they did this towards the end of the war but prior to that this pretty bad devastation. I mean but that was a 'nigma that was it. Obviously we have a lot of advantage hindsight being twenty twenty and all the normal history revealing itself through timing interviews like this and everything else in a lot of people would look back and say. That's incredible devastation. What needed to happen at the time. That's all they had to go off of when you look at history. People are making choices based off the information they have at the time. And that's all they have to go off of your always put things into perspective in that respect from your experience your five hundred plus hours of flying lancaster and the stories you've listened to and everything else. What are some of the things that you like. The most i guess about the aircraft when it comes to piloting it around and it would have. You heard other say. They've appreciated the most about it. Well there's six of fly the canadian lancaster. We're the six were there at the right time. And i mean there's thousands and thousands of pilots can be trained to fly the lancaster. Obviously we're the six that were lucky enough to be there and do it in you. Never forget the honor. You never forget what the bomber stood for was designed for is a weapon of mass destruction. There's no getting around that it also brings back the memories of the veterans. And that's what we're all about. It's all about veterans for us. We acquire airplanes. We document them and maintain them Restore them fly them. Airplanes at the royal canadian air force were. We never forget where that airplane came from. So i am very proud to fly it. I'm very careful with it. We're careful all the time as little redundancy. Something like that. But you do happen to think it's a tail wheel airplane trevor. In crosswind landings She can be a challenge. Sometimes when you close throttles those four engines though comeback. Like they've got. What did we call that. Power control system on the airbus. The the ability to provide thrust instantaneously those two engines would run up. Run back on the three twenty identical power. These don't you push for throttles up. One might go ahead go ahead. And because the tail and your p factor and the gyroscopic action in the torrington slipstream effect. The ceremony wants to go to the left on take-off share it had a crosswind into it. When we took it to england we are dealing with crosswinds all over the place in all and be a wonder who designed the runways. It is a pleasure but you don't wanna be the guy that damages it. Oh yeah who wants to damage any airplane you know but we do fly. It's in memory of the veterans. It's a living flying memorial for.

"Five hundred and eighty gallons in the number one. Three eighty three in the number two and one hundred fourteen. The number three on each wing out of the five eighty in the number one taints we dump fuel well when we got the airplane in order to keep that dumped system working on how many times we're gonna fight around with twenty four hundred and fifty four gallons total. We wouldn't be. Yeah did when we went to england. But in order to activate and certify that system would be have to check every year so they decided litz wire the system closed and will limit the takeoff way to the gross weight landing which we did now. The dump system trim when you activated the dump. It was on the floor by the pilots foot turned the handle and these two big hoses would drop out under pressure from the number one tanks. Aren't dump your fuel. You could dump down one hundred gallons. You'd dumping four hundred and eighty gallons a thousand gallons. Basically you're getting rid of your and that's a seven thousand pounds so if you really got stuck in addition to your auto boost at near maximum power you could dump seven thousand at might just buy some time to climb at least enough to get away from the ground and some guy chance for some guys to get out if you needed to. The lancaster towards the end of the war was getting geared up to fly into the asian conflict of core. That did come to an end. And i did mention. It almost had a role in the atomic bombs. But it brought a lot of young women back to canada to the war brides. Trevor in their various versions. I mean we talked about the manchester. That was a lancaster. That was lincoln. Which was lancaster with the to speed. Two stage superchargers. So that was the bigger engine with a paddle blades. Instead of the needle blade propellers the york in the lancastrian gain lancaster's basically but these passenger airplanes. The lancastrian was used to carry fuel in berlin during the conflict. It's got some great history and then of course the great big shackleton bomber was a version of the lancaster. That had the griffon engine which was rolls royce. That's a two thousand horsepower. Engine plus now trevor. I've got to mention rolls royce named all of their piston engines after birds of prey. So you had the hawk. The eagle condor the vulture the griffin. And when you get to the merlin as a kid. I always believed the merlin was because england needed a miracle and merlin. The magician right. Yeah no merlin is also a bird. It's a pigeon hawk. I've had that pointed out to me. By one of our young students that come to the museum and of course the griffin is the imaginary bird. Rolls royce also built sleeve valve engines. Which were very successful. Although we didn't see a lot of the hercules on the lancaster was asleep valve engine. I saw that in our notes there. It's incredible how much conflict drives innovation that need for..

"I've done an interview. I'll be twenty nine. I'm interviewing on b twenty five. This is the first one. I'm seeing anything related electric warfare. Do you have any experience with that. No i don't does your aircraft have any of this kind of equipment still on it no. It doesn't what we did. We basically gutted our airplane and we carry four passenger seats on the left hand side of the airplane on the bombay window. They can look out. We didn't install windows. They were always there are and then we have four passengers. Four crew with exceptions we can carry a person so like i said there's electric warfare stuff in there like indo and tinsel we it to carry passengers if you go on the british lancaster which can interpret. They won't let you on their airplane. It's the queen's airplane is you can't even get near it to touch it but with our four seats while we have the guns but we don't carry the bullet racks and things like that. They have everything in their lancaster that the airplane had from the flare guns installed in the flare holders but ours was basically gutted to make the airplane make money because people wanna see it not necessarily get in but when we took it to air shows in england they were just ecstatic that they come over encourage them come on over. Get some lancaster royal on your because it's dripping everywhere you know so they just loved it. It is a special airplane to the british. It really is. I would definitely. I think anybody would be pradesh to have an aircraft to this quality so when we did take over them so for navigation we had an installed garments six fifty. Es extended squid her. We have the garment Transponder gt x. Thirty three which is a remote transponder is activated. The garment six fifty. Okay that's certified. We could do a cat. One approach with that trevor cool. But we're really legal too but we could if we had to. We had the hsa to go with it all right and we were all fairly current. I say fairly because retired a few years at the time. But i do how. It's done the other piece of equipment. We had was a carry on garmin. None it was another touchscreen a gt end and that was the seven ninety six. We kept that in front of us on the instrument panel mounted. You can't do approaches of course with a carry on but it was the one we use the most okay because it was right there and garmon doesn't get much better. Oh sure often tell people. When they see the garment while adolf hitler and the rockets to put the satellites up we got the gps if we waited a little longer for that war who knows no. Yeah so that was obviously current technology in. You've got gps. And you've got all this nancy stuff. Were they using navigate in war. In addition to h two as the mapping radar. They had oboe. They had assistant where they could have two beams and they could just go to where the two beams intersex somewhere along the line. They have to fly along one beam. Wait salihi hit the second beam and let their bombs go there. What you say beams you. You're talking like radiofrequency yuping previously beans. Yeah remember the old dot dash into dash dot range little more going on. I wasn't around for that stuff. But i mean those pilots. I mean earlier. Canada guys in your guys the same thing. They operated on that system. That's right yeah. When i mentioned fifty three thousand pounds gross weight. The airplane had so many different variations than some of them. Were fifty eight thousand pounds somewhere. Seventy two thousand pound gross weight takeoffs versions but we are limited to fifty three because it's maximum landing weight Now the lancaster has three fuel tanks in each wing..

"New restore engines and everything else is wonderful organization similar to the heritage flight organization. Exactly like ours too. I mean you have living history. Ours is not quite so glamorous. It's called the exemption to seven hundred zero point zero two dash to dash. You know like some kind of legalese. Yeah so like your la jeffie. It gives us a chance to sell rides in our airplanes. And that's how we keep these airplanes going. you can buy a ride in lancaster. It's expensive but then you know it's one of a kind and you mentioned the skin being one thirty thousands of an inch. Thick is that right on the average. I help restore bolingbrook bomber and thirty to forty two thousand. Seven inch was all it was trevor. Your some neil is around thirty thousands of an inch thick so it doesn't stop bullets. No that sounds pretty crazy. I mean you think about space flight and that's kind of some of the thickness of the walls of the spacecraft back in you know i think the apollo missions i'm tending to believe that there was no pressurization. No wasn't pressurization there. What else can i ask about this thing. I mean it's. I've talked about kind of being a little bit narrower than your typical bomber any other kind of nuances that maybe you can pull out. It had some great features. Will it did have a heating system by the way there's radiators in the leading edge zim between the fuselage on the inboard engines on each side and all it does takes the. It's a heat exchanger. Okay which takes the hot water from the cooling system in the inboard engines. Give us some heat now. Well we took it over to england yet. We could smell the heat. We just couldn't feel it. That was the problem is see. Yeah different variations of the airplane for the different roles it was assigned to do. It was just a very successful four engine bomber that could carry a heavy weight and travel a long distance. A fairly good speeds speaking of speeds. What kind of cruise speed to the have and then for normal employment. Where were they run. The airplane at two pounds of boost with the twenty two hundred rpm so over north america we refer to boost as inches of course inches of mercury. But if you take twenty nine point nine two inches and divided by fourteen point seven pounds per square inch you.

"We all love our airplanes trevor. Whichever one were on They all lumped said they believed that if the shutdown if three quarters of shot down the other quarter would make it back so the engines You could fly with an airplane with two engines out on one side allow. I've never had to try. That wouldn't want to. And of course i fi- i. Nobody's shooting at me either. But there have been some incidents where they've been down to one engine above ten thousand feet and still maintaining strength of flight. You're not gonna go much other than keeping it straight level so everybody get out but yeah when we took the airplane over to england in two thousand fourteen. There were eighty four veterans waiting for us. We tried to leave august the forest and the number two engine wooden start. This is all in our movie reunion of giants. The following a they managed to find the coil electrical coil which we hadn't used in years. All of a sudden was needed. I showed up the following day and we took off went to goose bay canada. Let's spend the night following day when over to iceland. Spend a couple of days in august eight. We had to arrive in england in rainstorm. But all of those vets with air thousands of people. We had to make it if it was safe. Yeah so we're coming into conning. Beer for station in the weather was coming. We managed to get past race against time race against time. Yeah but that's what they said. They all love their airplane. They felt very safe with it. But there's very little protection. I mean it's thirty thousands of an inch thick skin all around. It was a metal plate behind the pilot. Said you know when we mentioned earlier about single pilot operation in one stream. Bullet kill the pilot. You got yourself an aeroplane training. They didn't have standby pilots Everybody seems to think well maybe the navigators maybe some navigators learn to. Yeah maybe they became a navigator because at that time they didn't need pilots and that happened to but it wasn't a plan there was no like they're going to have a backup guy there just in case he's going to do something clever the at fault if i didn't mention that the reason we call this airplane the andrew mccarthy memorial lancaster andrew mckee was the mid upper gunner the night the airplane got shot down. This airplane only had forty six hours on it when it shot down as brand new. We spent almost that many hours flying across the atlantic and back when he was the last one to get out all the engines. Were shut down in each turn is operated by a single hydraulic pump on each engine. So number one engine would run the mid under gun. Number two was the nose number three was the upper number. Four was detailed gun and i.

"Honest. That parker might be handy. We dressed very lightly with our flight suits and jackets and we look pretty good. I must say sure red faces a noses and look and goods half the battle. Of course it is yeah. We'll speak in a going long distances. What kind of range was this aircraft capable of. We took the airplane from goose bay. Canada for one hour out to the atlantic. Coast them across the original plans to land in the star sweat greenland. We were able to stretch that all the way to kept in iceland and still have an hour fuel. That's ten hours of fighting but we took off fifty three thousand pounds. Which is our gross weight now for takeoff. That's also are landing weight. That's why we have a gross weight at takeoff for fifty three but we weren't carrying twenty two thousand pounds of bombs. That'll do it. We did have twenty one hundred fifty four imperial gallons of fuel which thousand five hundred pounds plus the way to the airplane about thirty four thousand crew. Another two thousand and our bags of course to answer your question. That airplane could carry almost twenty two thousand pounds from midland's in england the berlin. that's flying a dogleg. It's only six hundred miles each way. It could carry a lot but again sixty percent of them almost shot down river. You know labor vulnerable. It's a daunting thing to look at the loss rate. Yes and think that people are willingly going in there to do this by when it comes to protecting your country. The other thing with lancaster the british loved three. Oh three gotten we have two in the nose too in the top on the top targets and four in the tail turret. Those are the fifty. Was the freezer. Nash fifty was the upper tar and the fire was the nose. Turn that you'd say well. Why don't you put fifties or cannons in it. Yeah if lancaster could fly during world war two it was on a raid simple as that. They weren't going to ground an airplane to change tourists but if it was damaged and it had to be grown for repair they would switch them over like they did have the martin. Electric turret up in the top and that was fifty calibers twenty millimeter cannons in the tail. Eventually but basically it was the three. Oh three they just loved. I think everybody probably loves a specific type weapon and and maybe the price is right to get forget you know. Obviously there is only so much manufacturing capability and maybe that was the one that had the most so there definitely is potentially an issue kind of to one of the previous points about the remit and one of our listener questions again from john clark was lightly armed and talking about the machine gun types was the overlapping fire and everything else like that..

"They would put those airplanes in the back of the pack and arm the radar so anybody sneaking up behind would get a surprise. I mean it was just numbers in world war. Two lancasters were being built in canada. We built four hundred thirty one day came off the ramp out of the factory. But you go down to epsilon. Andy where the b twenty four was built. They were coming out one every fifty nine minutes. Yeah you can't shoot him down that fast no way. Holy goodness yeah. That's amazing stuff Talk to enough people that either lived through it or have spoken to others that had lived through that whole period. You go to museums and you see the history there and you start to get a sense of just how big a logistics yes essentially that the war was and then you're never going to see that again. I don't think you know it's amazing stuff. He i think world war now with a whole different story you know. Yeah i don't think it would be a good one for sure. Well okay so let's switch in. Let's go from the outside of the aircraft to the inside aircraft and talk through the crew complement so this bomber is unique. What is the one thing. That kind of stands out. That's unique about this. That is different. I think than probably any of the other bombers that we're going to work well the first thing you're going to notice a single pilot seat. What's that about. Yeah exactly and one of your questions here was why did they only have one pilot while if you get into the lancaster and you should come and have a look anybody's welcome to come up but if you see that big seat sitting there there's a narrow space on the right where there's a fold up chair that's where the copilot's sits in the warriors the crew chief would sit there and there was only one wheel. Our airplane has two wheels and so does the british lancaster. Which is the only other lancaster flying in the world. Okay if you imagine duplicating that seat and it's space that would make that airplane wider. What made the lancaster so effective. It was narrower and it was very fast than it has a huge uplift and beautiful wing for big merlin engines by the time that the war was going the other way. Trevor they were using hundred sixty octane fuel and that engine was producing one horsepower per cubic inch got a sixteen hundred and forty seven cubic inch engine. Twenty seven point zero two leader. The engine never changed. What did change was the super charger super charger one wheel. So it's a single stage single speed. Our airplane has single stage to speed and later on in the war..

"Shut down with ico. Either cutoffs okay. So therefore switches. That's the most obvious. Change okay then after that trevor. It was one modification after the other. That airplane was actually considered to carry the atomic bombs to japan. Believe it or not because the b twenty nine they were having trouble fitting it in lancaster. Thirty four foot bombay. So of course. They took the doors off this lancaster so they could carry the upkeep bouncing bomb and the grand slam the twenty two thousand pounder and the twelve thousand tallboy told boy went after the pits. When i was a kid in england there was a kid in my class whose father put a torpedo into the pits. So it's a small world really when you think of it allow you know trevor. They went after the terp wants out of russia. They could barely make it. The app to use a wellington bomber fuel tank as an additional fuel supply removing all deterrence. They did the attack. The germans come up with a smokescreen system. They could cover the airplane the second attack. They moved the tur- pits to trump's. Oh the different tests fjord and this great. They also moved to squadron a messerschmidt's up there so that when the captain on that turps new the bombers were coming and he'd have lots of time he could get the fighters in the air. Yeah except they didn't tell the fighters where the ship would be moved to. They went to the other field and they sank that ship now. They couldn't see the ship because the cloud. So what are the guys on the ship. Do open up their cannons firing. And you look down and you could see it ring of fire. That's how they managed to hit it now. That was that airplane. Of course the bouncing bomb the dam buster move in barnes wallis and his bouncing bomb and guy gibson. The leader of the six seventeen squadron That's a great movie in itself. And i hope some of your viewers if they haven't seen it will look at it going on from there..

Everybody was able to walk away and That airplane live to see another day but with all that covered will head straight in the interview on the lancaster with today's guests. Mister leon evanson the jerry seinfeld of this world apologize upfront for my horrid attempt at british over bit. Hopefully it can forgive me other than that. Enjoy it right.

Los Angeles County Brewery, Restaurant Owners Feel They Have Been Vilified By Health Inspectors During Pandemic
"Got a story rolling out in Lancaster and Steve, This isn't just a you know Another brewery. I think this is the oldest brewery in Lancaster is not true that I do not know. No, no, I do not know all he knows they've been there for a while, and they're very popular and there Very good people up there. I've been up there a few times and they're very, very nice people. But why would a woman or a man or anybody get pleasure since and shutting a guy down on Super Bowl Sunday at the you know, after 11 months of trying to scramble just to stay alive. Don't know. And I don't know what her motive was. I can only tell you that this is part and parcel to a lot of the complaints. I'm getting from business owners and restaurant owners about inspectors coming in having a bit of a god complex and coming in. Knowing they have the total power on then some of these restaurants that have been just like repeated targets of the health department where it's like I remember when Barbara for rare County Health Department director said, You know when I say Why is this happening that hammer because, well, we have 33,000 licensed restaurants in L. A county. And she says, You know, it's not. It's not easy to get to all of them like, well, no, because they're fixated on 20 of them, and they keep going back to these 20 over and over and over and over and over. And you know, and I think what happens is that you've got a lot of pushback from restaurant owners because they're like, you know, we've had it and you know, it's what happened with Tin Horn flats in here in Burbank. The place up in Agoura Hills. I think, um I can't remember the name of that place up there. But He was defiant of that also, and and I think that's what was going on with the county. The county is like, you know, they're not gonna back down. They're gonna put all their time. Money and resource is into teaching these people a lesson.

Furniture Finishing Q&A with Mike Mascelli Finishing
"This questions from chips. Stoltzfus and chip. If you have anything to do with. Stoltzfus is restaurant in lancaster. Pencil or no bird in hand pennsylvania. Oh country i miss that place dearly. All right i have been a professional woodworker for almost twenty five years. I started out in a large making church furniture and have since worked mostly in smaller cabinet shops. In that time every finisher. I've ever worked with said that you shouldn't san to sand higher than one. Twenty or one fifty grit. They claimed once you get higher than fifty polish is the would not let stain it here. Like it is designed yet. I often hear you talking about standing to three twenty or higher before finishing all of the shops. I've worked with have had have used wiping saints with some type of lacquer. Topcoat is the difference in sanding due to different finishes. I've started using rubio. monaco. And i've noticed that it gives a smoother finish if the piece of sand to the higher grits. Thank you for your time and great work with the pun. So well i've heard this many times Thank you for asking a couple of things that i think we should just sorta get On the table it matters a lot. What kind of would you're working with More so even than the than the finished. So if you're working in oak or mahogany and really open. Grain pours wood particularly oak. You can get away with a lot of stuff on on course grit sandy because you have such deep pours and lines in the in the in the grain of the as it is if you're in maple or you're in cherry It's a very different game. So you have You're talking about church furniture. A lot of that furniture's oak. Yeah in a production shop setting you're gonna send this stuff with a production machine may be a big stir machine dual pad sander And you're going to get this stuff out the door because you're in a commercial setting so sanding to a one twenty or one fifty you're leaving fairly significant scratches so in in oak if you see a neatly along the grain those scratches won't be as objectionable if you're using wedding stained product. I'm holding this up for the folks that can't see this. This is a mohawk wiping stain product. That's pretty typical you. You'd see in a commercial shop and this is mostly a die product. That doesn't have a lot of pigment in it again. I did a a article which we coming out and find woodworking here soon about diane pigment but die think about the like a strong food coloring or t it's going to penetrate into the would as much as it can whatever the would will absorb and that's what you get. A pigment is nicely ground fine particles of nice dirt so the pigment if you had it in a wiping stained product or know a commercial setting if you're gonna put die on it's going to absorb what it's going to absorb and that heart and twenty grit sanded. Surface is going to absorb guy and the grooves of the santa scratches are going to absorb a little bit more die because you have the sides of the of the valley if you will open if you have a pigment in your in your stand mix if you have deep scratches like one twenty scratches the pigment is gonna lodge in those scratches so what we always say in. The shops are if you sat at one twenty and uses a pigment stain and you see and at a higher grit. The one twenty grit is going to appear darker because more pigment is gonna stay behind when you if you do a white walker if you leave it there because you there's more places for the pigment the lodge there's there's more surface area right. There's there's a valleys of the sand scratches the pigments going to go in there and it's going to stay so if you take the exact same piece of lumber and sanded at one twenty and seeing like to and stain it. It's going to look darker at one. Twenty okay is that to twenty. So that's one aspect of the of the the higher grit sitting as far as this business about polishing the. Would if you see end up high enough if you take a piece of maple cherry and you sanded up to four five six hundred you'll create a surface. That's almost like this piece of plexiglass. It's very very resistant to anything. Even the dies so it really is true. If you stand up too far you will. You will resist the action of the die penetrating and of course there's no place for the pigment to lodge so it's going to look very very light so to to well. I always say as a rule of thumb is that the middle ground here is to twenty okay and there's two reasons for the to twenty one for the color and once for the fish on the collar side if you're sanding at you know eighty and one twenty and one fifty whatever it is if you don't sand perfectly each grit progressively you're gonna leave one hundred grit scratch someplace so if santa to twenty neatly it even if you leave one hundred grade or one hundred fifty grit. Scratch somewhere in that pattern. It won't be noticeable because the to twenty will help smooth that over the other reason for the one on the finnish. Side is if you leave to twenty grid scratches most finishes at two applications. You know a couple of dry mills of finish most finishes will bridge to twenty scratches at one twenty. You gotta put a whole lot of finish on there to get it to bridge the the valleys and in the case of church furniture. It didn't matter you know if it's oak. You're not going for a full pour piano by finish so it's okay you can leave him at one. Twenty it doesn't make the finish. Grab any better I mean you need a little bit of tooth for like the modern era things and stuff even this rubio other than lacquers which melt into each other. You need a little bit of tooth and usually in between the coats is when we would send three twenty okay so the bare would prep would be bringing up through the grit. Says you need to Up to about two twenty as a rule of thumb in most woods an inbetween your coats of finish. If you're going to scuff in between that would be at say three twenty at the most if you go too much then it's true you're finish isn't gonna would here so Also if you do test boards now sanding at two twenty the you're you're you're staining will look differently if you finish at one eighty or one hundred question Particularly again if the if the caller i will call it. Disdain is sort of or ginger. If the color delivery system includes some pigment those pigment particles that powder dirt is gonna lodge in those poor in the pores of the wood and in your scratches and the other thing is if you're going to sand rough if you're gonna leave it at one twenty or one fifty you'd better stand really really neatly with the grain. Is any them cross grade. He's gonna show up like a scar. A so special pigtail swirls from iran. A morbid sander and again give you some some advice on that if you're standing up to two twenty with a random orbit i'm gonna really good ones. There's air powered ones in. There's there's an electric ones even really good to twenty random orbit. You're gonna get little swirly marks. You can handsome those out but you got back up to one eighty. Okay get those swirly marks at back up to one eighty on a hand block get the swirlies out and then hand block at two twenty so use your random orbit to get most of the work done in and try to minimize the swirly marks but if you get those little squirrels you've got to send him out yet. Backup one grip. I've i've recently started doing christian beck's method of. I think come one fifty or so. He pulls the pat off the ran more but does a hand pass them one. Eighty four but paul's pat off does a hand pass is is even. If you're trying to clear the swirlies out okay. The other thing that can help is a lot of these. Random orbits now the new ones. The lyrics are adjustable. Speed variable-speed ara. Are you supposed to change that speed. I've never touch that knob. Where do you run at high on. Fast or slow. Whatever it's i have no idea. I've never thought about that. Phnom well if you put it now all the way fast you're going to remove a lot more material and you're gonna leave more swirly marks if you put it all away. Slow was gonna go. Roy moore and you're not gonna get good standing action. So somewhere in the middle is better and slower is better so i would say sand at the slowest speed. That's effective for what you're trying to do. Okay you will minimize the squirrelly marks if you said at full number ten You're not only gonna not gonna have as much control of what you're seeing but you're gonna leave more swirlies

That's f o w l like the bird It's named after my murder. Mystery company called the foul players of perryville. Perryville is where. I live in maryland. Were about fifty miles northeast of baltimore. The reason why we make that ton or whatever you would say it would be for. Foul is because The town i live in is right on the susquehanna river which is known for its multiple species of waterfowl people. They have actual waterfowl museums ear to talk about that stuff so we figured it'd be a nice play on words for foul play my head. The murder mystery company for a couple of years. Now we perform on boats and on trains office parties and vineyards and whoever have us. I also am a musician. I right now have an acoustic duo. That i've had for about fifteen years and we're kind of comedy act sort of similar to the smothers brothers. It's two of us. We play acoustic guitars and the humor isn't as much when with the banter between us as it is with the humor's actually in songs so that's called. The uncle moldy show. And we perform a in the maryland area a wide knob sometimes in pennsylvania to most recently. You may know me as the viking. And the jim what worth commercials while riding around on the bus. I was the big viking. That came out of the back You've also seen me this year on kimmy versus the reverend if you haven't seen that movie it's based on the unbreakable kimmy schmidt and it's there's a scene where kimmy and tight us. The two main characters are way out in the country and they come into a bar. There's a leonard skinner ban. they're playing. And i'm the bartender in there. I won't give away the movie. But it's an interactive movie but no matter what choices you make in the movie. You always get to see me. So that's the good part about it. You know it's it's not like that movie revolved around me or anything like that We have been nominated nominated for a couple of emmys I believe it was for best special perhaps and then Titus burgess has been nominated for an emmy for male performance. I believe as well. I'm excited about that. I'm also appeared on gotham. I wish unseasoned. Five episode eight played one of the penguins henchman named dale. I was shot to death in the third scene. I was in. And i've also done a number of discovery. Id shows and some mom commercials down here in maryland. When i was starting out and everything. I'm also years ago. I was in the hair bands of the eighties. I had a big hairband back. In those days. I had a band that was kind of more like the call to little bit. After that when the hairband started going out we were called orange seed parade we played. Cbgb's in new york a number of times. And you know open for a couple of national acts over the years. So yes so. That's me in a nutshell so we can get a little more specific if you like Depending well you know the first thing that you said that caught my ear was the susquehanna river and i was thinking of that old. Avidan castillo routine about the susquehanna company. All right right squad at company there may have been years ago but the majority of there's only a couple of miles of the susquehanna bets in maryland and it actually goes all the way up to near upstate new york so there could be something on the way you know that river goes through lancaster and harrisburg and it goes quite a ways up. I believe almost up to upstate. New york if it doesn't start up there somewhere along the line. I'm sure there was and with your murder mystery troop you. You're an actor in the troupe.

Cloud Gaming Could Impact Environment with Widespread Adoption
"Of our Studies have looked at the positive benefits gaming can have on human populations. But today we're looking at a potential negative according to researchers at Lancaster University who published their finances the 7th International Conference on ICT for sustainability cloud gaming if it were to become widespread could have a major impact on the environment wage limit changes in my opinion the biggest issue facing Humanity. It's important to consider how the things we do impact the environment around us generally gaming doesn't have a huge impact, but Horizon cloud gaming could have huge ramifications before we jump into the findings. I have to shout out in the cool Carpenter one of the best e Sports writers out there. She published a full article on this issue and polygon this morning. That's how I came across. No link the article below. It's something worth reading as most Gamers know cloud gaming is a big area of focus for the main gaming companies xcloud stadia PlayStation now or all big initiatives page right now cloud gaming has a negligible impact on the environment mainly because it accounts very very small percentage of all gaming being played the Lancaster University researchers modeled three possibilities by the year twenty-thirty the one where cloud gaming that's literally playing video games straight from the cloud not just downloading them from the cloud just to be clear stays a small part of overall gaming that model had little effect on the environment the second model assumes 30% of Gamers plaid primarily cloud-based streaming games that would increase the carbon emissions of gaming by about 30% and 5 or if ninety percent of people switched over to playing games on the cloud that would increase carbon emissions of gaming by a hundred and 12% Those models were also assuming Gamers continue to play in 7 a.m. And 20 and 1080p if 4K gaming took over that would have a massive effect on the environment that final example were ninety percent of gamers are suddenly playing video games on a cloud would require massive bounds in Internet infrastructure, and it's incredibly unlikely, but it's also something to be informed about and consider when debating what to play and what to subscribe to now the big savings page. This is also highlighted by Nicole and her article. This study assumes the cloud service are being run by fossil fuels not by Clean Energy if we can make a transition to clean energy. This study is basically month so far gaming friends. This is just one more reason to push everything towards clean energy. We're going to need it quickly. That's

How To Run A Bowling Alley-Arcade-Restaurant-Bar In The Middle Of A Pandemic
"Would be even harder than just running a restaurant. Come on. Running a restaurant there was also an arcade was also a bullet. Right. There you can't the business involved a bunch of people touching stuff. Really. Yeah, and sharing shoes, right har you disappeared shoes, right so many questions. Well, the good news is today we have guests. Could. Speak exactly that because among other things he has co founded a bowling alley. Bar. And Love, I have so many questions about the bowling alley of model before or even before I should say the corona virus hit. So I'm looking forward to this one. Where could I just say one more thing crazy or we bring guests not gone con- do you know that I want bolted to sixty three? Strike. As effect. Pick Sur- it didn't happen not so nice. Say it a high school I otherwise I would have had fucking. Anyway a likely story trust. Numerous introduction today I'm very excited someone who he should have had it on a long time ago long even before virus finally getting on. Adamos AMAC. So as mention he's the CO founder of decades is a bowling alley arcade bar in restaurant in Lancaster Pennsylvania in is an economist. is the chief economist at work, which is an online freelancing platform. So kind of the perfect guest to talk about the macro of what a seeing the economy, but also in the micro of actually run or try to run a business. extraordinary. Time. Adam Ozanich. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having US I. Guess you don't have to worry about disinfecting the shoes right now because I assume no one's volume. Bowling or they are willing they are bowling there socially distance bowling. What's that? So we have six lanes at decades, and this means that you can bowl on every other lane and we always have a fairly small maximum group size anyway. So that's really concerning. Do you disinfect the bullying Balser. What happens are people like spraying antibacterial spray into the holes every time they come out yet we have disinfectant. We always disinfectant shoes in one of the things that. Might surprise people about how we're a little bit advantage coming into this is disinfecting was like a big part of what we did before. the PIN number saw we've always disinfected our shoes after every single us and we've actually had a throughout the business we have. Stations of hand sanitizer. They've always been there. We've got I love the five of them. Arcade. But we're pretty clean place. If you're just picturing like a regular bowling alley arcade, that's not a good imaging mind to hold what decades is like we're fairly upscale place. It's a commonplace where you'd be comfortable getting a cocktail and we've got chandeliers hanging out. Nice. Leather couches. It's like a nice. It's a nice place. You're totally comfortable buying a good cocktail. They're so like we work hard to keep it clean and make feel clean we always have. So disinfecting that we've been part of what we do the only thing sort of extra We now we disinfect the Arcade Games all day long and we disinfect bowling ball's all day long. So, took us a little bit about like, okay. What is business like pre-crisis accompanying business like yours bullying are your? What is the sort of business model love Blake in normal times in terms of where you make money or the profit opportunities are I assume some aspects are more loss leader than others like Linda just normal day to day the business of running back. Sure. So it's really four businesses that overlap the restaurant, the bar, the arcade in the bowling alley there's a lot of fixed cost operating all of them. So there's not really a profit margin overall area, but you get sort of operating margin it do you. Basically make money on all areas in the business. I'm they're just different different kinds of operating structures. So like in the restaurant is a high costumes sold business that means there's a lot of materials that go into each dollar you sell, but the front costs are smaller share. Bowling is like a massively fixed cost business. So like your ninety, five percent of the cost of boom is a fixed cost which was putting in lanes. On the marginal dollar bowling, you have really high margins and same thing is true for. The big cost of machines you have the cost of tokens you have maintenance repair costs, but those are relatively minor. Via Arcade is that a high margin business tone The good news about climb margin businesses is you can afford to do all sorts of like discounts on them to make them into laws leaders if you have nights of the week where you want to. You, know if you have like a lover capacity night of the week, you can do something like everybody who comes in Lottomatica gets two dollars for tokens. When you in the food business in the restaurant business if you want offer discounts, it's really get into. You know actually losing a loss leader with bowling arcade it's all opportunity cost. There's you know it's really hard to lose dollar someone balls it costs you like. Almost, nothing to let them all. In your cades. This is something I always wondered given that there's so many different businesses involved in something like a bowling alley that also serves food and drinks and has video games well but what's best deal for a customer? Would it be just going there to bowl and not buying food or drink or would it be going narrative buy food or drink because the cost of food and drink is subsidized by the bowling alley or? I know it changes all the time, but I'm just curious whether there's there's one thing that kind of stands out to you. So it's definitely, you can find specials throughout the week. If you WANNA bowl, it's cheaper to bowl off on like a night of the week doing a special order nor Keagan doing special. So Nat Sense. You're talking cost minimization coming outside of peak hours is going to be the best way to do it. It can be pretty busy on the weekends saw. Do you WanNa make sure you can play your game and unlike Saturday night you know you have to get there kind of early to get signed up all. It gets pretty busy because six lanes. So from a cost minimization perspective queuing perspective the slower days of the week you better odds. But in the put on my economist hat, the real value is not determined by the cost the inputs the value is how much get out of it so in my mind. Whole SORTA experience. It's great full. Complete evening. So I like the total package she come in you blend games you bowl an entire evening is a lot of stuff you can do with your friends. So it's sort of irrelevant to the consumer what what the relative costs you're looking at what your consumer surplus from and it's true. You can save money by bowling on a Tuesday night, for example, but. Your friends might not be able to go out on a Tuesday night. All sort of gather at specific times. You mentioned the ability to give out token maybe two dollars worth of tokens if you WANNA to come in on a night that typically less busy have turning. into a loss leader to grow food sales. But I'm curious about the token aspect US specifically in part because there is this nationwide. Shortage so that mean you guys don't have to worry about the coin right I of bunny token. That's right. We don't have to worry about the coin shortage right now. But that's because of lessons learned about coin shortages and we we get our own coins minted. They say decades on them never nice little. Picture on them of our logo you, designed to coin up my heart. Sinden, he's the one of my partners is that he's an artist and designer marketing guide and he he designed the coin. It looks great. We did have a coin shortage early on. So we ordered what we thought you know speaking. The token people are used to dealing with arcades. And we have also are the person we are teams from WHO has a lot of our experience and we talked to both of them we got this is how many coins you should have for an arcade of your size, but demand was so strong at first the velocity of spending we couldn't keep up with it. We didn't have nearly enough tokens and it took US actually like months to get caught up to the amount of tokens that we should have. Because it takes a while to them. There's a backlog also, you're sort of in denial about how much you Tokens. Because, you think about is like well, we're GONNA spend this little bit of front nettle. Be It for Tokens but people walk away with Tokens. Fine. 'cause you think you're going to bring them back eventually even if they don't, it cost less than a token mitt less than a quarter to make token. So like someone buys one hundred dollars tokens and frozen in the trash, we make money on that. We don't make as many as if they gave back to us, but we still make money. Right? But when we first opened up, we had just this massive coin shortage 'em. What required was constant constant emptying of the Arcade Games. If you have here token level set crackly, you shouldn't have to Vr your your games throughout the night it maybe once. Or twice on like a Saturday she really busy. But they're big. They have big containers on them. They're meant to be held up with the days where you said you should have to empty them. but we opened Keith the supply of coins moving. We had to be constantly engaging, and this was actually I was doing this a lot. I don't actually work there on a partner, but I don't think take salary I don't have a job there. But I was for our. I like opening week weekends. I was there like our busiest times wearing the decade shirt like a staff member going around the emptying the ski ball machines who machines just emptying the tokens and keeping them moving basically long so that that's the cost of a coin shortage says you have to. Interject yourself into the the arcade economy and keep them moving.

Don't like your furniture that gets drenched by a broken pipe. State Farm Renter's insurance find an agents or get a quote at State Farm Dot Com about two years into their stay at a Kenyan refugee camp after fleeing Somalia Mustafa Nor and his family found that they had been selected to be resettled in the US and initially they had mixed feelings so in the country select you. You're notified two years in that. Hey you know. United States has selected you and that has in the refugee camp that always comes as a great news center. Santa about bad news because Because the United States takes the longest to process innovating they have a hard process. They have hottest scrutiny. Hot above ranch aches six. And he's right. The vetting process for refugees coming to the. US is intense. There's multiple interviews and background checks and security checks by different branches of the US government. It's fingerprints tests for contagious diseases. It can take years from office family. It took a decade but eventually as with other refugees who make it through the whole process assess. The family was paired with a resettlement agency. Mustafa and his family were paired with Church World Service which has a branch in Lancaster. It's nonprofit that receives funding funding from the federal government and from private donors and it sets up refugee families with a few months of housing some counseling services food and clothing and then they tried to US find your job right away because once you around here you have to start paying your bill for the government for bringing you a lot of people. I don't know this but yes refugees payback the US government for the cost of flying here from the southwest big family. Those were not cheap flights around eleven twelve hundred per person so a family of ten ten people. You get a bill of almost ten thousand dollars. Mustafa says he found Lancaster City. Lancaster County unexpectedly welcoming to his refugee family and to other refugee families and that in fact is the city's reputation in two thousand sixteen before the trump administration started limiting. How many refugees could come to the US? The number of refugees were resettled. In Lancaster. City hit a peak of four hundred and seven as a share of the city's population. That's almost twenty three times more more refugees resettled than in the US as a whole which is why. The city was labeled the refugee capital of America by the BBC. So why is Lancaster able to resettle so many refugees. One reason is resources. For example Church World Service. The Resettlement Agency is able to partner with local organizations to provide services is beyond just the basics beyond the initial housing and food and clothes for example. There's a nonprofit that provides health care to refugees. English language tutors the school district and in universities to help with education employment programs and companies that will actively try to hire refugees and train them. She masto Prieto runs. The Lancaster Office of Church World World Service and she says that all these resources make it possible for Lancaster to accept even the hardest cases. Like when there's a huge refugee family of ten or fifteen people or when a refugee has a medical issue and can't work or if a refugee only speaks a really obscure foreign language there are no cases in this area that we that we would refuse so we do have the option when cases sent to us by our national office to say they basically. They're saying will you accept this case so we always do and it's not just tangible resources. There's something else that has given Lancaster the ability to absorb refugees. Its history starting. In the early eighteenth century entry members of the Mennonite and Amish churches were fleeing persecution in Europe and started moving to Lancaster. The county still has a huge amish mennonite population and and the value of welcoming people in need of a new home has remained Steve Noel. A professor at Elizabethtown College spoke with us at the Mennonite historical society which features exhibits exhibits about the Amish and Mennonite history of Lancaster. Well in the in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighties. For example Mennonites in this area were were deeply involved in resettlement of refugees from Southeast Asia. from from Vietnam Cambodia Laos and that's that was motivated both by Christian humanitarian concerns and also concerns that as Mennonites as conscientious objectors pacifists. I am in fact Mustafa's own experience right after arriving in Lancaster reflects this my first ever job. was I worked with Amish. I used to work for a company that build moved garages and sheds so used to install windows. He did well enough at this job installing windows for these sheds that he was hired by a company called E. Impact Marketing working which provides marketing for amish companies in the area in which trained Mustafa in Web design. Mustafa would end up becoming their head web developer and then he started thinking thinking more broadly he started a company called bridge which is a website where people can sign up to have dinner in the home of a refugee family in the area. The refugee family will cook the meal and share their story and the family will also said a fever. The dinner which it gets to keep bridge charges service fee which is how it makes money. Mustafa's office original pitch for bridge. One A business plan competition which provided the funding to get started. My feature was done I was gonNA instead of instead of free training or giving refugees a new skill. Why not give them a plot from where they can on an income with what they already know and we'll have their culture under food and part one we? We explained how refugees and immigrants contribute to an economy by helping its population grow and giving new businesses more people to sell two into higher Adamo MIC. The Lancaster based economist. I says it stories. Like Mustafa's also demonstrate the more subtle ways to immigrants and refugees contribute a move into neighborhoods that others might find less desirable herbal and they start interesting businesses and they really contribute to the diversity of consumer experiences downtown and you can in downtown like stir. You can eat into Vietnamese place. You can meet on Nepalese place. There's just a huge amount of writing. Her Moustapha says his company is making money and he even has plans to expand into neighboring in York County and he adds. His story shows the symbiotic relationship between the Lancaster economy and it's refugees and it goes something like this. The success of the Economy Konami makes it possible for the city to offer resources to these refugees so that they can prosper and they're prospering feeds right back into the success of the Lancaster economy. So what happens happens is warning refugee person comes here the community. This community has done a very good job of harnessing that refugee person as a whole from employment to training to the job opportunities to internship training. So I I went through those different circles of of coming here sieving. Welcome Hi finding a stable able job and then how developing a skill. Which is the development web development using that skill to create a company? Now so it's a great circle on. It's it's a something which is very I don't WanNa say unique. What's special about Lancaster? Lancaster is now a pretty good place to get it by. This episode of the indicator was produced by Lena Sons Gary fact check by Nadia Lewis.

"Everyone it stacey and Cardiff and this is the indicator from planet money today on the show we are shining spotlight on Lancaster. County Pennsylvania We visited the county a couple of months ago because it represents this kind of economic puzzle it is a heavily rural county with a lot of manufacturing jobs and a very low share of of college educated workers these are economic traits that have been devastating to the economies of other similar counties including a lot of other counties in Pennsylvania itself and yet Lincolnshire County is doing great. It's thriving why is that. What makes its economy? Special would have find out. We took a drive through the county with an economist who lives there and economists who happens to specialize in the very trends that have kept lancasters economy resilient this message comes from.

Google dot com on a recent Tuesday morning indicator team was driving through Lancaster. County Pennsylvania With Adam Ozanich and economist. Who lives there? They're these houses are nice by the old mill. Is Dave concerns left back to that road. Can I go right here doing. Yeah okay so we took a few dragging their Cardiff and after passing through some leafy suburbs similar to the one that Adam grew up in we stopped to check out the Mennonite historical Oracle Society which has exhibits about. The county's famous amish. Mennonite past is kind of this is kind of exciting spot right here because you have like outlet shopping shopping rate here but like right there like if you just go like two hundred yards. You've got farms like it's it gets extremely rural extremely remove fast outlet. Shopping and farms is exciting at Lancaster. County has this kind of unique topography. It is a rural county. That is about a two hour Dr West of Philadelphia. It has five hundred forty thousand residents and it's probably best known for its big amish community and its sprawling farms where yes. If you're driving along. On one of the highways you will often spot amish people and horse buggies yet but here are to economic facts about Lancaster. County the start of our economic puzzle. I I it has a big base of manufacturing jobs three decades ago more than thirty percent of the jobs in the county were in manufacturing and then two decades ago those those jobs started disappearing just like in other parts of the country. The jobs rather outsource to countries overseas or replaced by machines. But even now fifteen fifteen percent of all jobs in Lancaster are still in manufacturing. And that's almost double the percentage for the United States as a whole and here's the second fact. The county has a much smaller share of college educated adults than the rest of the country does and if you look at so many other cities and towns and counties in the US with these same economic characteristics they have suffered brutally in the last few decades as the lost manufacturing jobs often were not replaced by really good new jobs in other industries and so this communities ended up getting in kind of hollowed out but Lancaster County has avoided that fate. Yeah exactly that is the puzzle. Lancaster County is doing great. The county's households make more money than people in the rest as to the US. A higher share of the adults in the county have jobs than in the rest of the US and an index published earlier this year by the research company. Gallup found that Lancaster County County ranks eighth out of one hundred and fifty six counties that it surveyed for the wellbeing of its residents and that includes things like good career paths socialize and the health of those residents and you can see the the the way that strong economy sort of translates into overall quality of living. Is there too so the average life expectancy accuracy and Mike Stern is higher as well. So how did Lancaster County pull this off. Part of the answer is that there are other industries that have helped to cushion the blow of last manufacturing jobs ops Princeton's two thirds of the land in the county is farmland so there's a lot of agriculture cattle and poultry and eggs plus. The county includes dozens of small towns and villages ages with Quirky names like Paradise Mountjoy or my personal favorite burden hand Pennsylvania and they are themselves tourist attractions with architecture. Sometimes dating back hundreds in years to when German settlers I moved to the area and then there is Lancaster city which is by far the biggest and actually the only city in Lancaster County. The city city has about sixty thousand residents so only about eleven percent of the people who live in the county live in the city but as we drove into the city from the suburbs. Adam explain saying that the city has an important economic relationship with the rest of the county one that is still kind of evolving back in the eighties and nineties. When Adam was growing up in the Lancaster suburbs outside of the city Eddie? He remembers that the city itself had a lot of crime. And it also wasn't a place you wanted to go in fact you can only remember going there for two reasons. Entire childhood one was to go to the doctor and the other titanic. Downtown movie theater which doesn't exist anymore. I mean you had to write. I'm the king. Yes you did. Yes you had to. But Lancaster city has been revitalised since then. Local business leaders and local politicians have taken steps to attract investment in new businesses says to lower crime to restore replace crumbling buildings and now it has boutique stores gourmet coffee shops and we can confirm this firsthand a fantastic the ethnic dining scene. It's important to do that. LEGWORK reporting yeah now people come downtown to shop they come down to downtown to go to eat. It's it's it's become like sort of a magnet and draw says all this buried economic activity tourism retail restaurants. Construction Agriculture is made possible by a powerful trend that exists in Lancaster. County population growth. That's the key to this puzzle. The size of Lancaster County population has been growing steadily for decades. which it's the exact opposite of what's happening in most Pennsylvania counties and also about half of the counties in the US whose populations have been falling especially rural counties to think about becoming an entrepreneur in that environment is really tough? Because you know you're going to have less customer every year when a city or county has a falling population that usually means it will have have a week less vibrant economy because it means there are just fewer customers but there also fewer workers for businesses to hire so fewer businesses get started it also means the local government collect fewer tax dollars which could be spent on infrastructure. Teachers police officers social programs pensions. This makes place less attractive so then even more people leave and it creates a downward spiral. Adams's Lancaster County has had the opposite. Spiral an upward spiral. A rising population has given the economy. A boost which which itself disincentivize is that people already lived there from leaving it and it brings in new businesses a good example. The Tech Entrepreneur Kyle somber founded the passenger coffee shop in Lancaster City. Where coincidentally we had just stopped? Adam explains so right. Now we're on the east end of the city Eddie and actually the coffee shop that we earlier they Row certain coffee in the cell the beans to other coffee shops and it was started by a local local entrepreneurs and then an entrepreneur who went to Silicon Valley founded few startups sold the startups in sort of moved back here to. Aw do great stuff with the money. He made out there and he's been starting businesses and he's not the only person who had seen knew that as well there couple of reasons that Lancaster's population has continued to climb. I have a lot of kids which is enough to outpace the number of people who pass away who die not to be crude about it. Yes so there's a high birth rate in Lancaster for sure and I think that that is partly due to sort of the mennonite roots around. Here's the people have bigger families here and second immigration Lancaster County. The end especially Lancaster city have a reputation for being welcoming to immigrants and refugees immigrants from all over the world from Vietnam in Somalia in Mexico and and immigration obviously by definition helps population grow. It is literally people who move to an area but immigrants also contribute to the Lancaster economy. Other interesting interesting subtle ways and they are a big part of the reason that Lancaster city in particular has become a unique place. In fact. That is the subject of part two of our spotlight on Lancaster. Mr County which will run next week by the way if you live in a city with an interesting economic lesson.
