Who's Winning in the GOP? Devin Nunes Weighs In
"What is the correlation of forces? What is the balance of power between the old establishment, the old Republican rhino establishment that looked at president Trump as an anomaly, something that they can get beyond and get back to work, you know, with doing FTSE under the table with the Democrats. What is the relationship between the old establishment that doesn't care for maga? And the new maga America first center of gravity. Who's winning? Is it too early to say and what needs to happen next? Well, I think we're now ultra Mecca, right? Yes. Ultra magnet now. You're like the leader of ultra magnetic. We have it's the most popular item on our website, guys. As soon as they came up after 6 months of focus groups and million spent allegedly the old man in The White House came up with it, we said, okay, that's great. The ultra maga T-shirt with president Trump. So we understand that this is going to backfire just as badly as deplorables did. That wasn't an insult. That was wholeheartedly embraced by the movement. So yes, they don't get it. They don't understand the narrative of why we believe in America. But when it comes to our side of the aisle, what's the power play? Who's winning? Well, look, I don't think there's really nobody wins when we fight amongst ourselves. And if you look at it really, there's very few people that are out there that are against the so called maga maga movement or ultra maga. Or basically just kind of getting back to kind of normal conservative values. And I think you've seen a lot of those folks that were that way. They're retired or they're going to they're not going to win. They're going to lose. They're
FDA chief under fire for slow response to baby formula issue
"The head of the Food and Drug Administration faced fury from both parties in the house over months of delays investigating problems at the nation's largest baby formula plant that prompted an ongoing shortage FDA commissioner Robert califf told Congress the coronavirus slowed down efforts to investigate problems at the abbot plant We knew that ceasing plant operations would create supply problems but we had no choice given the insanitary conditions The ranking Republican on the committee Virginia's Morgan Griffith quickly zeroed in on the slow response Why did it take an onslaught of national media attention for the Biden administration to act with the sense of urgency that is required to adequately address an infant formula shortage Formula had to be airlifted from Europe to help ease the shortage Abbott and the FDA have reached an agreement to reopen the plant next week Ed Donahue Washington
It's Time to Reenter the Gun Control Debate
"Begrudgingly, we're going to get back into the gun control debate. We're now going to defend our rights against people that want to take them away. We're going to add clarity and we're going to add hopefully some wisdom to how we talk about weapons and how we talk about the Second Amendment against the highly emotional chatter that is going to enter the discourse. We are prepared for this. I lived through not just lived through. I was front and center on a lot of the sandy hook, sandy hook, yes, but Parkland shooting. I got to know Kyle kashuv and I remember being in Washington, D.C.. In fact, we're reposting a video of this. And I kid you not. There must have been a hundred, 200,000 people. Do you remember this? The March for our lives? David Hague and all these people that were being platformed by celebrities all around a massive push for gun control, which of course was just a midterm push for the Democrats. This was in February and March of 2018. If I remember correctly, Parkland happened on Valentine's Day of 2018. February 14th, 2018. And it just unfolded for months of gun control chatter. And I went into the streets of

"President Biden will sign an executive order today on police reforms while marking the anniversary of George Floyd's killing by Minneapolis police The president had been pushing Congress to pass legislation boosting law enforcement oversight Let's get it done next month By the first anniversary of George Floyd's death That was 13 months ago but bipartisan talks stalled and today on the second anniversary AP sources say the president will sign an executive order that among other things will require federal law enforcement to review and revise use of force policies and encourage limits on choke holds and no knock warrants It's a less extensive approach than he originally wanted but was worked out after months of talks between The White House civil rights groups and police organizations Sagar Meghani Washington
The Border Is on Fire, So Where Is Kamala Harris?
"But let's get back to Kamala because she's clearly realized this is not a winning situation at all. And I found this really fascinating. If you look at her schedule that the LA times actually keeps tabs on, what you would see is that actually in the last 8 months, she hasn't done any events. On the border. I mean, wow, right? Talking about a shifting focus, which is exactly what they call it. In fact, the title of this section in the piece in the LA times is called Harris shifting focus. The subject matter of the events has also changed they write over time. According to our analysis, the times analysis of the text of her schedules, these charts of the frequency of events for select categories over time and you see all the categories and what do you know, immigration has declined significantly. You see, it is a no win issue for her. I get it, but this is a problem, right? This is, this is intrinsically so much of the problem. Because you get a bunch of politicians out there that are just doing what's right for them right now. They think, okay, we'll just play in Peoria. If it does, great, if it doesn't, I'm running from that issue as fast as I can. And so nobody's actually trying to solve anything. She's not actually trying to fix this. She talked a good game about the root causes, right? Why we have these immigration problems? The root causes are the reality that you get tons of corruption. You get socialist regimes down there. You've got violence, you've got drug cartels, and instead of saying, hey, we don't want it here, I don't know what she's trying to do. She's trying to say she's going to fix it all. Good luck, okay? You're not going to fix it. You're just not going to fix it overnight. Certainly. I don't have the money in the wherewithal to fix it. So don't you want to kind of prevent it from coming here?
Homeland Security: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
"But first, let's begin on this news about our border Homeland Security, the head of it is trying to warn us that while you ain't seen nothing yet, 234,088 people, they were apprehended in the month of April. At the U.S. Mexico border. But it's apparently going to get worse. It's going to get worse for a whole lot of reasons and I'll tell you, this is going to wind up costing Democrats politically. We know that it will get worse in part because of the messaging that's coming from The White House. I mean, major is kind of sort of said in his video today, don't come here, but that has not been a consistent message, right? Let's be honest here. That is hardly been the message. From the Democrats. I mean, it's not apparently a winning message for their base. Although you have to wonder in time, will that change, given that everyday Americans are just upset about this, you had a 110,000 people that were released into the country out of the 234,088, just in the month of April. So people want to know, I mean, why are we releasing so many people, I guess maybe we can't take care of them all? That's part of the issue. You know, why are they coming here in the first place? I mean, that's sort of the bottom line that really needs to be
Ilan Berman Assesses the Western Response to Ukraine
"Ilhan, we've talked about the danger of a landlocked Ukraine. Let's talk about our actions to date. I've said $40 billion worth of aid doesn't make a lot of sense in terms of cash to Kyiv, especially when it has line items for $7 billion for the State Department and undisclosed amount of money for the CIA. That doesn't look like a to Kyiv, having spoken to cramming knowledge with people who've worked in the Ukraine, what they need is what is zelensky's calling for, which is weapons, which is weaponry, ammunition, wheeled vehicles to move their troops and also training of their reserves in safe locales like the Baltics and Poland. Will you give us your assessment of the west on blocks response to this war in the last three months? Right. Well, I mean, there's a lot there to unpack. But listen, I think generally I'm positive on the western response. I do have some of the same misgivings as you, which is because our politics I may say charitably have become intolerably stupid. Not ours. America's not ours, America's politics. D.C.'s. There is this false equation that if you somehow question the line items in the $40 billion that you are not your put inside. Putin side or you're somehow not supportive enough of Ukraine. But the more nuanced argument is, I firmly believe sunlight is the best disinfectant. I want to see what's sort of what is allocated, whether it's actually going to be useful to Ukraine. And accountability. Absolutely. But can I just flip on that? That's stupid politics. There's also the flip side of that, that if you're pro as we are supporting what I see is Ukraine 1776. Suddenly you're an interventionist neocon. That's
The Great Decline: Will the Human Species Be Able to Continue?
"Economic Forum is meeting about all sorts of different issues, renewable energy and the environment are forefront issues. They're talking about mass migration and how they're going to support zelensky, some of the news out of yesterday is that zelensky has said that he wants $5 billion a month, that's right. He wants $5 billion a month from the world that we must now subsidize the entire Ukrainian government that the Ukrainian government must become a proxy state of the American regime in the west. So a lot of this is unfolding. Right now, in Davos. But if you look carefully and if you look closely, there's something that is missing from the conversation amongst the world's elites. In fact, the opposite is actually happening. They are addressing an issue completely and totally incorrectly in the wrong way, and it's an issue that impacts every single person in the world. It's an issue that's happening in front of our very eyes. And in fact, if you go back a couple years on the Charlie Kirk show, I remember we did this podcast back in June or July of 2020. Remember exactly where I was. I was an Aspen Colorado. Where we did this podcast warning about the looming catastrophic and immediate population collapse that is happening in the west and around the world. Put simply in plainly, we are not having enough children. Birth rates are plummeting in the industrialized world. Now we need to ask ourselves the question why are people having less kids? We're going to explore that throughout this hour. But how often do you hear your Republican politicians or people in the news media dive into great detail about the looming population catastrophe in front of you, the disintegration, if you will? Of our ability to continue our species as we know it. The World Economic Forum is talking about every possible fringe issue. But the issue that is front and center, the issue that is so clearly in front of them that they are ignoring is, will our species be able to continue?
Biden to sign policing executive order 2 years after George Floyd died
"AP sources say President Biden plans to sign an executive order on policing tomorrow Wednesday is the second anniversary of George Floyd's killing by Minneapolis police Three people familiar with the matter say the president will sign the order alongside Floyd's relatives It would require federal law enforcement to review and revise use of force policies restrict the flow of surplus military gear to local police and encourage limits on choke holds and no knock warrants The order does not go as far as the president originally wanted bipartisan police reform talks stalled in Congress last year The new steps are the results of months of talks between The White House and civil rights groups and police organizations
Will the Sheriff of Yuma Take Necessary Action on the Mules?
"A lot of times when people see the movie, they're like dinesh, what's going to happen next? Are there any law enforcement authorities that are going to act on the information in the film? And it turns out that there is a new investigation. It's a criminal investigation, it is in Yuma county, Arizona, it's been publicly announced by the sheriff of Yuma and there are some reports, although I have been verified them that the sheriff has already done some raids on nonprofits, kind of votes stash houses in Yuma. This has been reported by gateway pundit, although like I say, I read through the article that wasn't positive if this has already happened, or if it's going to happen. Now, interestingly, the left, the reporters for an Arizona gun running to the sheriff and said, did you start this investigation based on 2000 mules? And the sheriff goes, no. He goes, quote, he's ongoing investigations are based upon facts and evidence regarding violations of Arizona statutes. And then interestingly, he says that this has been part of an investigation going on for a year. And then he goes, I have not communicated with any individuals who have because of quote supposed inspiration from a documentary film. So the sheriff is basically saying, I didn't see 2000 mules and jump into action. I've been working on this for a year. Now, a couple of things it should be. No, the number one, no one was talking about paid ballot trafficking until 2000 meals came out. And number two, the mule that we interview, the Greg Phillips interviews in the film, is from San Luis in Yuma county. Through the vote has been investigating in Yuma for months.
Economy bigger priority than punishing Russia: AP-NORC poll
"A poll suggests Americans are becoming less supportive of punishing Russia for the Ukraine invasion if the U.S. economy suffers as a result The president is heading home from Asia where he again pushed for allies to make Russia pay a price for the war World has to deal with it And we are And while broad support for American sanctions has not faltered there is a shift in prioritizing them over the domestic economy In AP norc center for public affairs research poll finds 51% of Americans want the focus on limiting economic damage 45% say the priority should be sanctioning Russia as effectively as possible Those numbers were exactly reversed last month and the shift reflects rising anxiety over inflation and other challenges at home Sagar Meghani Washington
Democrat Pollster Suggests Bloody Midterm for Biden
"Don't know if you've been talking about it. Have you heard about this new memo from Doug sosnik? No. Doug sosnik being very senior respected democratic pollster strategist was in the Clinton White House. That's where he became well known and in the 90s. Written this new memo to Democrats. And it's incredibly pessimistic. It says, look, basically, unless we can make something huge about a Supreme Court roe versus wade decision, unless we can pull a rabbit out of our hat. We are toast. And what he does was he lays out the mistakes that the Biden administration has made to bring Democrats to this point and I'll just the real short version is he starts off with a Biden honeymoon. Then July 4th of last year, Biden holds this Independence Day, freedom from COVID event in which he kind of declares the pandemic over and of course we know what happened then. There was a delta variant and then there was omicron. Let's just say COVID wasn't over. The next month is the disastrously bundled withdrawal from Afghanistan and people begin to question these are independents, some Democrats obviously Republicans, whether the Biden administration can confidently handle issues. So when inflation becomes really huge, Americans are worried and Biden suggests that don't worry, we're in control, we're in charge here. We know what to do. They're very skeptical about this because they have already seen what happened with COVID, and they've seen what happened in Afghanistan. Now they're watching it with the economy and they just have absolutely no faith in Biden or democratic efforts to handle things now. And he also said, do not think that voters are going to make their decision in the last couple of weeks before the election. They're making their decision right now. And as a matter of fact, it may already be made right now. This may already be said in stone. It's one of the more pessimistic democratic documents I've seen in quite a while.
Life in Kyiv after three months of war

EXPLAINER: What is monkeypox and where is it spreading?
"We're learning more about monkeypox where is it and how serious is it First of all your risk of getting monkeypox is low say officials In the past few days they've identified more than 100 cases of monkeypox in Europe North America Israel and Australia Most of the known cases in Europe have been among men who have sex with men You can be infected though through close contact with a sick person Their clothing or bed sheets But most people recover within a month or less without needing to be hospitalized Monkeypox can be fatal though in up to 6% of cases There are vaccines smallpox vaccines are effective against monkeypox and antiviral drugs are also being developed I'm Rita foley
Does Hard Work for a Given Community Pay Off in the End?
"How much does reality matter? Because you look at the four years of my old boss in The White House, president Trump, after if you look at lowest unemployment for blacks and Hispanics since record keeping began, you look at the first step act, the first serious prison Reform Act in years, if not decades, which should give him some credit with this population, but it seems nugatory. Yes, he got more votes, but does hard work for a given community actually pay off the dividends of popularity two or four years later. I would say absolutely, yes. Because failing to do that means you're guaranteed to not ever get any of those votes. You can't get votes from people if you don't show up and talk to them. I'll say this, even what you mentioned with president Trump, all right? If you all were consulting me three or four years ago. It's fine, you didn't. But if you were. Here's what I would say. As somebody who's lived in and around cities, my entire life, I would be more interested in hearing the Trump campaign tout the efforts of operation legend than the first step act. Okay, explain that. So I'm sure as you know in many of your listeners know, operation legend was a joint federal initiative, FBI, DoJ, ATF, that I believe it was a 9 cities, including Chicago, and I believe St. Louis and a number of other cities where, I mean, they were having issues with crime within the cities. It was named after legend, who I think was shot, not intentionally, but was the victim of a drive by shooting. And the purpose of it was to get guns off the street to get violent criminal suspects off the street. And I think over the course of 5, 6 months, there were over 450 homicide arrests. A number of arrests for illegal guns and those types of things that really impact communities on a granular level.
"last few months" Discussed on Around the House with Eric G®
"Welcome back to around the house with gene caroline. We've been talking about trying to save you a few bucks around your house on energie. So how do we save you a couple box on our next few months energy bills so you can use that money someplace else. Well carolina we're just talking about water heaters but she brought up a great one. How do we track that electricity. How do we monitor that right. Yeah and so this technology arts gonna talk about can save you about nine percent on your electric bill. That's pretty substantial. I mean almost ten percent if you're going to watch and so i've had this running in my house now for about two years and it's called sense s. e. n. s. and i'd say it's an app but what happens is you have this little box you put in your electrical breaker panel and there's a couple of clips that come around the two lines that are coming in the two legs of power coming in. And then it hooks into a breaker power and then it goes on the internet and it senses using artificial intelligence everything. That's running inside your home. So i can open up the app and see what my always running is and then i can see you know what my energy bill is and i can compare it. I can put in my my electricity rates so it can tell me what my next month. Bill's going to be if it keeps going. It's brilliant so i'm looking at it. Basically gives you a monitor to current sent- like you get two centres with it and antenna power cable a mounting bracket and then you hook this up. It looks like it costs about three hundred dollars give or take. It's not really that expensive and so then doing great. It allows you to monitor have packages right so you can go to a little higher end package to. So what's it gonna tell us exactly. So here's what's cool at. This is when you plug this in. It gives you real time energy use and so machine. Basically the artificial intelligence learns the devices. In your home. You'll find device and go. Hey i just found a new. This is either a coffeemaker or a hairdryer. Or i'm just making things up but then it starts to give you historical usage trans that kind of stuff and so you can make goals. And then they've got all these different systems so you like if you've got solar it'll hook into your solar system if you've got a larger home where maybe you've got a four hundred amps service. They've got one there as well. So it's really cool. How it's designed to work within your home. And now i can test what's going on in my house and see real time. Where am i burning energy. That's amazing sting with yeah. Here's what's cool to testing with this is. It can also start to tell when things are failing so for instance. I love this. Because if you've got that old like twenty five year old beer fridge out in the in the in the garage someplace or the basement you can compare that fridge and its energy usage to like the really good energy fisher on. That's in your kitchen. Look at it and go. wow That beer fridge is costing me a ton of money. And if i buy a new energy efficient one that's gonna pay for itself in sixteen months. Maybe i need to replace. That puts them in there. That's not going to burn up so much electrcity. Yeah this is a really cool story. So they installed the sense in the middle of an issue with their well pump. And you know anybody who knows if you're well pomp is constantly trigger on it can cost you a fortune. So in this case they used used it with the well pump trigger which had broken and it was broken in the on position. So the i guess are well. Pump was always kicking on and they weren't getting understanding that it was happening and it was costing thousands of dollars and so when they installed the sense. It helped them narrow down the problem to figure out. That's you know that's your issue because a lot of times you don't hear your wall pump kicking on all the time especially if it's in a basement area so you'll just it'll keep kicking on kicking on all of a sudden you get this giant energy bill. That's pretty cool. That's very needs. We have a well. So that's why. I know these issues can happen and they get expensive so it's really cool that way so it's a great way to monitor what's going on and you can just do it on your phone. You can be sitting there anywhere in the world. If you've got an internet connection look what's going on your home and see wow. I'm using ten energy. What's what's going on right now now. It doesn't turn things off and on but it does give you real time monitoring and they're working out some details. When i was back there at their studios over in cambridge here quiche eighteen months ago. Or so i was hanging out in there and they were actually testing out kind of this cool feature where they were starting to be able to see that this guy is heating and cooling system was working right. The starting capacitor was failing and so it was trying to heat the heat pump up and start to get the motor going in a didn't and so it was they went. Oh wow that's an error. They could see it on their on their system and it was off an error. So they're working at getting smarter and smarter. And i think they're going to be able to catch more problems like that in the future and this one also if you go on vacation so someone's basement bathroom like the sewer pump would kick on when the basement bathroom would would run and so they went on vacation and they happen to check the sense app and they noticed that the pump was running every few minutes in the toilet in the bathroom was running all the time. So you can imagine your way. So they had a neighbor. Come over and shut the water off to the toilet. Can you imagine they would have had a two hundred plus bill for water just from being on vacation when they got back. That's awesome worth itself to keep it on. Keep it on your phone. That's gonna save you some serious serious money these smart thermostats can really save you a ton of money in your heating and cooling. I put in the new carrier system. They have their own version of that. But anything from the The nast to the echo be take a look and see what works best with your system but man those things can save you a ton of energy and you'll have to have it running all the time if especially if you're traveling and i like to that they're telling you you you get a lot of information on a nest right so you're looking at not only temperature but relative humidity which is really important and we talked about that in the last episode but monitoring that relative humidity the only thing the caveat to this that i often remind people is that sometimes when you have a nest on the wall. You're getting a wall temp. Not the center of the room temp or center of the room. rh reading so. Just be conscious of just because something's on the wall doesn't mean that that's not what's happening in the rest of your space so i often tell people to also have some type of neither standalone monitor or you can pick up a a really cheap. You know ten buck monitor down at the hardware store to put in the center of the room to kind of keep an eye on it and you can move it around because what set. Your wall isn't always necessarily what's happening in your airspace. For sure and what's cool now is nest and e koby both came out with little sensors now that you can place. That's around the house. That's so you can put these little sensors at now show on that app so if you have You know an area like in the upstairs bedroom basement basement. You're right in the basement sacconaghi so you can now monitor those other rooms with that same thermostat and that's really really cool. Yeah that's definitely a must. And how many do they do they give them to you. When you sign up for the nest and you get a nest or do you have to. Are they extra. gather extra. But they're not bad. They're not buying a whole new thermostat. They're just these little things that are about the inch by square and they work really good. Now that's a must. I haven't seen that that's interesting. Don't change that. We've got our classic rewind with clyde lewis coming up. this is a show. You don't want to ever miss. I'm eric chief. I'm carolina be and you've been listening to around the house.

"Cabinet. But we picked the hardware. So i mean what. It's all different depending on if you walk in as a homeowner if you walk into the designer okay. I'm designing this entire country model around this faucet and the stink when you've already got it most of the time the designer's going to be there to help you one get the right materials to fit within the budget in to make sure that they play. Nice together the you don't have it looking like Liberace's yard sale. Yeah and having too many different things going so if the designer you're working with the designer you can expect that they'll probably be what ten fifteen percent markup. I mean what what i'd probably say many times you've got a fifteen percent mark you might see a little bit last. You might see it more. But that's the negotiation. Need to sit down before you start even designing on the project. How do they work. Understand how they work and have a very open book concept of how this goes because you want to know what those markups are so everybody can manage. 'cause i don't wanna see the designer be marking that up fifteen percent as in the contractors market up another fifteen percent and that's where you have to be really careful with this stuff and this is the hardest thing in remodeled and navigate is to find out how it's going because let's be honest open book for the design community out here. These are some of the insider secrets that i want you to pay attention to as a homeowner is that contractor probably has a better discount off that product than the designer does so. Let's say the contractor remodeler walks a plumbing storage says okay. I get forty percent off this place. Discount off of retail that designer might only get fifteen or twenty percent so if that contractors marking that up fifteen percent. You've got a big savings dirty getting fifteen or twenty percent off of what the retail would've been if you have walked in there. Is you know mrs smith. Homeowner Already got a big savings there. But you're gonna be paying more retail. Maybe with that designer so understand how those things go and who's putting their hands and what pot so you're careful to understand how these costco because otherwise you end up paying if you're not careful twenty percent more than than what the retail is so. That's what i want you to be careful well and sometimes to like you know. We sell at my company. We sell dehumidifiers. We sell all kinds of indoor air quality products and we're a distributor right so there's different grades. You have your distributor. Then you have your contractor rate then you have your retail price so you buy from someone who actually is distributor and some contractors are some plumbers or distributor. They can actually do a lot better on pricing. So unfortunately it's a lot of headache because you got praise shop but if you really are in a budget you have to be aware that there are these markups. You're gonna be paying this and you have to incorporate that into your process when you're trying to figure out how you're gonna budget for this and i think people forget that they look at something and they say okay the cabinets are going to cost me fifteen thousand and then you have to realize you've got all these other you know one of my concern is always compounding markup when you get the designer you've got the builder and all of a sudden you can take fifteen percent fifteen percent and you've got a big markup on hand so it's something always need to be careful with well don't change that dial you're listening to our best of episode here of our favorite.

I'm very very to be cutting edge. And i like to do things other people aren't doing so i want to know where i can go to really get good ideas the newest products. What's really available and not get something that is already been done or is going to be outdated by the time i get my kitchen. Yeah first off. I would stay away from the diy. Networks hdtv's because many times those things were recorded years ago and many times are recorded in canada. Where maybe that building codes going to be different or it's not available in the. Us were different product altogether. So my first place. That i recommend is go to house because many designers contractors will put up there recently completed projects up there. That project will show up on house for instance before it shows up. Where do they go to see the house. Dot house dot com. And it's that's an easy one. It's kind of like pinterest. But any of these cutoff picture websites. There's some things you need to keep in mind like caroline. How many times have you seen a house picture. Would they have that big chandelier over the bathtub. Well that doesn't meet electrical code in the us because it's a safety thing. They don't want you. Standing up in that bathtub reaching up and grabbing an electrical fixture or that fixture could come loose from the ceiling in land in the bathtub. Like it's the toner and someone's trying to knock you off so some things. Just what are you how. Yeah how many times have i had a client. I want to do this. And they have on their phone that picture of another country or even just an illegal installation of that going well. I found it on the internet. Can't we knew that. And the answer is no and we'll talk about this at another show but that's where some contractors will go in and put up that electrical box in the ceiling and put a cover on it and then after they're done with the project the homeowner will go back in and install that mindful chandelier over the bathtub. Denied you wanna be doing so. That's that happens more than you think it does. but that is unfortunately the case many times. You just can't do that. In keeping some people get idea in their head and they wanna make it happen right and and i. I could turn accused of that too. But you have to do it in a safe way because i think people are looking to be innovative. I think there are some people who are traditionalist. But for the most part. If i'm gonna do a big project i really wanna have cutting edge. Whether it's you know. Mike kilo century. We're talking about doors A new system where you can just put your finger up against the your fingerprint and you go right in your front door. That's really cool so like things like that. If you're really an innovator we need to get the right information. So how dot com. That's what you're recommending as far as picture house dot com is one. That's really good. Those guys have some good stuff up there and then you know i hate to say it leaning on your designer is a big one because they have some knowledge of what works. And what doesn't and if you're going to be working on a kitchen and you're gonna be working on something like that even if you're doing a major refresh where maybe you're not swapping out cabinets but you're doing some other stuff in there. A few hours for the designer will always save you money because they're going to help guide you down the road to get the project completed and you're the one that can also go. Have you ever thought of this. And by the way. This probably won't work. Like you think from america and soon markup standpoint eric how much should someone be paying for a designer so like if you're doing a kitchen. What is the appropriate amount of money. That designers should be taking is ten percent fifteen percent twenty percent. I mean and it depends on what what it is. Because here's why there are some designers out there that won't mark. The product put all that they will charge by the hour in so their hourly rate is going to be higher than if they're giving you an hourly late rate with the percentage on the materials. And so i like to really kind of have an open book with the designer. You have to kind of negotiate that out now. Here's some of the problems you run into. And this is a struggle in the design community that i know it's very torn and we could bring five designers on here and we'd have the most grand argument of which is better for a homeowner. There's a problem if you have the designer whose marking the products up and then you've got another plumber or electrician or contractor working on it because that plumber or the electrician when they install something they're gonna warranty it if that went through their books. So i don't like getting in the middle of this where you've got those products that are bought by the designer. The plumbers installing it in a year from now you've got a warranty issue and the plumber goes. I don't know man you gave me the staff. It's your stop. now you're paying in the product warranty. They'll get you a replacement part. You're paying to have that fixed. I would prefer to have that contractor by it so his plumber puts it in In so now that's covered by that warranty. That's where it starts to save you some money and i think you get a better warranty on the install when that contractor owns that material and the labor. Because if you've got a one year warranty or two year warranty whatever that contractor gave. That's where it's going to save you some money if you're paying some do to do that. Otherwise if you're supplying the materials yourself as a homeowner for instance if the plumber shows because hey you're missing in your now the the errand boy you have to go track that down for the plumber. Because you're the one. Bringing the materials i mean traditionally when you go to a designer who picks the hardware right. Who's picking the same and i remember like when i went. I think we ended up picking the actual faucet and things like that she. She did not She picked them and what went in the.

"Weekend. Thanks for joining us. Carolina and i are sitting here talking about how we can try to save you. Money were at least anticipated in that remodeling project. You're working on. Yeah and there's going of the break you may think you're just going to replace your cabinets. And then your countertops and just to a refresh. And then eric brought up a really good point. That may not be as simple as you think so. If you're just going to replace them utility some of your appliances there may be some electrical issues. All let you take that away with what we think could happen potentially could cost you money. Yeah if you've got that like nineteen seventies house in nineteen eighty s house depending on when it was built. Usually when you jump into a kitchen remodel you have to put in new circuits for everything because everything in your house. There in that kitchen requires really its own dedicated circuit. What i mean by that. If you have a dishwasher many times dishwasher maybe some outlets and the garbage disposal are on their own breaker right so when you go turn it off the breaker panel that turns off two or three. Everything goes off. Turn off a whole room. You're there went. Well the problem is is. That's not current code. So like for instance you're outlets are gonna be on their own circuit where the or an arc fault breaker depending on. What's going on there in your local building code many times in an older house. That's on the same. Those are in the same circuit. Is the lights if you kick it off or lose the breaker everything dies in the kitchen so those have to be separated. So you're saying your oven has to be on it. Tim breaker yes. So every appliance has to have. Its own breaker so Your refrigerator your microwave. Your garbage disposal. Your dishwasher your rain should your outlets your lights. You can see where this goes. You can add three or four different circuits to that and on top of that. There's a lot of new ranges or ovens built in ovens. Let's say you're just gonna remove and replace a double oven if you go grab like one of the ones which i really like and go to put it in there. If you've got that nineteen seventies house. You've got three wires that are coming in for that electrical service into that appliance. They require the fourth one. So now you're bringing another neutral in clients. Well and then that means you have to add a supplemental breaker box. Because a lot of people don't have room so if you have an old house you're gonna have to put another breaker box in a garage or location close to that. Now you're running another line and that's gonna cost you pretty penny. So yeah. I mean like for my panel here in my house when i did that. That was a five thousand dollar panel upgrade. Because i had an old one to have them come in and we had to move the panel because again this is where those things compound right so i had this mold split mean electrical panel in the house so it was from nineteen seventy seven. And i'm like all right. We're going to upgrade that cool. We're going to put the new one in. That's a fire hazard and already had signs of overheating. So i wanted to get that done early. Well then we opened that can of worms like you do with the remodeling project right. They're like oh by the way. Yeah we're that we're gonna hook it up to the. Oh we are new code says that you that line that goes to the to the power pole can't go there. It has to be within like four feet of the front corner of the house or whatever towards the pole. So i had to move that like thirty feet to get that up to code so all of a sudden it's almost like putting new service into my house just off meeting current code and it was this big. You know big project to get that done and you have to do it. I mean you're stuck right so now all of this ten thousand dollars you're gonna to put towards your kitchen cabinets. Every has now gone to electric. And you haven't even gotten started. Yeah absolutely so. That's one of those tricks. You've got to be really careful with just in coming up with that stuff. So some other gotcha. I want you to pay attention to in carolina. This is something that year super aware of. Is that these days. There's a couple things you got to be careful with with old houses. You've got to watch out for your lead paint. You gotta watch out for your specis because it is innate. Ana products that were used. I mean in my area here in portland oregon if i bring materials to the landfill right. That came out of my house. I have to have a specis testing if my house was built before. Two thousand four. I have to have onsite testing by a certified as best as professional that came into my house in took the test of the drywall. Or whatever i'm taking to the landfill the drop off. I have to have that tested before. A drop it off and take the people work with me. Otherwise they're not gonna take it and a lot of times to you'll buy a house for example say you just purchased a house and you really don't know much about it you'll go to rip up carpet and you'll find like the old nine by nine as best as tiles underneath the carpet or they'll have layers people love to layer thing so you'll have maybe Pergau floor on top of that carpet and then she started to take these down. You get to assessed this floor. Especially if the house was built nineteen sixties. You see a lot of fifty sixties and seventies and then that's going to cost you a pretty penny to take it out so absolutely. There's all these hidden caveats and and things that happened when you're trying to do these these projects for sure one way to save yourself some money early on in the project. If you're doing a major model around your house is to have one of those fastest testing companies. Come out and take samples of all the things that you're going to removing all at once. So that way they can do that. It's best to survey and tell you exactly what you got going on so you can sit there and all right. Here's the plan. This is what we're doing and that way you've got that report so when you get rid of it you don't have to worry about that. Yeah that's a really good idea and then also. i know. it's hard to get these plumbers and electricity to come out because they usually want to do work when they come out and they don't want to just assess something but i think it makes sense to have somebody especially electrician come out prior to the project and say. Hey you're looking at. You're going to need a new box. They're going to need an additional box. You're going to need more circuit breakers. Maybe you've got you know you wanna put in some high lights. Whatever it is you're gonna be doing. Just find out what. That's gonna cost you because i mean i'm guilty of that too eric. Right i always think about the electrical back and everything going down. Then i'm like. Oh wait i kind of bring. The electricity in contractors are right. It's time for the attrition but that is really not the right way to do it. So i'm trying to save people's yeah some of my aggravation. Don't.

There certain music that they allow you to put up on a story in their certain music that they don't and traditionally most artists whether it's bieber guns n.

When you're trying to create a story on facebook where they let you use the music while phil collins that i wanted to use his in the air tonight or some version of it or a muzak version of it which can be like something similar to it I guess he doesn't like his music played. So when i put up our version it tagged me as saying that we were using it and we couldn't use it so it sent me a little message on facebook and it said alternative lots and it said alternative options and i look at it and it says still collins and i'm like what and it's the same song with a look alike guy that looks like the album that black and white album i forget. What album was that when he had the blood was guys a little bit off like you look at him and he's like that's not fill and then right below it says still collins and it sounds like the song and it looks like the song so we use the thought. But you're not really getting phil you're just getting still while still collinses. His younger brother that likes to drink and his nickname is still collins and he he likes his white light white lightning whiskey so on my brother still call. People were dying laughing.

in a position where just the mere fact of the isolation the loneliness and no one's reaching out to them the desperation of losing the business of not working these are all absolutely part of this whole equation that we have to bring together and say what can we do to avoid those at the same time minimize the virus transmission this is not an either or both of these are going to occur what we have to do is figure out how to balance them and the most important thing right now is just having the data discussion and it makes it a legitimate discussion when you have leaders continue to tell you this is going to go away in just a couple of months it won't be a problem anymore there is no reason of that discussion people like me or just you know scare mongers that's all and I know that that's going to happen and so I think that part of it is were were were trying to find ways to have this discussion where people believe it participate in it and say what we gonna do about it and that's were not having right now what do you think that there are tactics that you have that are not being adopted I think I heard you say quite a while back you know have people in their twenties go back and then people in their thirties now people I think you said something like that are their tactics that do thread this needle of I mean we've just seen and I mean just this incredibly massive layoffs which of course is is what's leading to people not being able to feed their young children are there ways to thread that needle for a long time six months a year eighteen months two years and not on one hand have society of all part and not on the other hand have just such an a huge number of covert nineteen cases that either the health care system breaks or something else terrible you know just it as serv terrible outcome on that front you know we have to understand or in a war with this virus it's a war war is never good war is never okay in the sense that everything will be fine there will be people who will suffer there are people who will die what our job is is to find the very best balance we can to limiting the number of people who will be impacted by this virus and who will die because of it and that is going to continue to change as we see more and more people across America infected for that matter across the world you know this this idea that is just old people in the long term care facilities or its prisoners most people work in meat processing plants those are all eager get areas of these living or working where all it took was one infected person out of the community you could have one out of every two hundred once it got into those areas it was like a match made gas Kaman blow up when people start to see that those are not the future faces of severe illness and dying that will bring a new reality I think then it's going to start being our family and friends or colleagues that will be what we have to do is help a a what I would consider again as a safe place to have this discussion of how we're gonna get through this war and so we have to stop us promising people ring will be okay is that's not going to be the case is not going to be second of all how do we get through it and I've said time and time again this is where the leadership that we need and it's not a partisan leadership statement we need an FDR fireside chat approach we need a Winston Churchill who will be honest and say these are the challenges we have how do we make sure that kids get enough food at the same time not because well to this suddenly become ill and severely ill with us in overwhelmed hospitals and right now that discussions not happening that's the first step you is just like the stages of death and dying you know until you go through that initial denial and deal with you can't move on we need to have this urgent discussion right now this is a long term proposition we're at war it's not gonna be pretty we cannot make it okay for everybody so how we gonna make the hard decisions and we need leadership that can bring us through that discussion and hold us together that's what if I had any magic wand right now the size one for a vaccine that's the magic wand that I would try so hard to make happen yes but if the governor said to you you know I think you understand this better than almost anybody out there help me to know I understand its war I understand people are going to die but help me to understand what I should do in my state do I do I keep second graders home till they're in fourth grade and just have them go to school on soon for two years is that what and they don't have play dates and they don't see other children is that is that what we're really looks like is that for reality what we're looking at or do I let them go and say you know what I mean they're gonna spread things but that's okay because they are the future and I think we should educate them I mean what what do you do she you know what the very question that you're asking me is the question I'm asking me you're asking yourself and we're all asking that same question but you know what we don't do it publicly and so I agree with you I think school should be on the table I think that how we protect people who are service workers should be on the table hi hi I believe that all these issues are up for not only discussion but hard decisions and when you say sorry when you say schools on the table do you mean you think it's possible we should keep kids home for a couple years are now know I'm thinking that that we should consider reopening our schools okay I've told I've been advising the surge of college presidents around the country about what to do in the fall and I said you know what you have to plan is if we're going to be in school okay and then have contingency plans if for some reason we can't be meaning that if we find it suddenly were in the middle of a big peak or whatever we will have to then come up with creative ways for example do block semesters where you take one course intensively for two weeks and so if something comes up and suddenly interrupts the semester you just it's not all lost you know be creative it's not just distance learning this is where I think as a society we need to have that kind of discussion but I mean think about this right now I just got done laying out how the governors have not used any of the criteria they set of pre opening and the public is so confused now what why are we re opening a why are we not know measure we did that was schools were suddenly shut all we're going to go back to school but I don't know why from why last spring we weren't or why we'll close down in the future that's where we have to have that plan where we say what we open schools and this is what we'll do if in fact we see an increase in transmission that we believe is related to schools for kids whatever and until you have that big knowledge meant that you need that you're not gonna have a plan that's the whole point of it is so I think that that's where if we could do anything right now is really we have to **** this boil of hard questions heart answers and then that's when we're gonna be able to develop these plants if I came all the planned today say open schools or don't open schools are you know basically everybody go back to work under age thirty they would be met with absolute resistance by some by many potentially and others would applaud it how does how do you do a plan and that kind of environment that's where leadership becomes everything do you think N. H. phase in in the abstract do you think that that there's there's a lot of sense to that like that's it something's people should look at we have no choice I think is unless you're willing to say we're going to stay in this lockdown you know and I'm trying as an epidemiologist saying I want the least number of people to be adversely affected by this virus I want the most people to be able to get through this the next sixteen or eighteen months whatever might be open to get to a vaccine where we did the most do not do harm kind of approach and I think in that situation yes everything should be on the table we have to have that discussion anyone who believes that we are not going to sustain any more virus casualties because we're locked down is wrong anyone who believes we can just let this go **** nilly and transmit widely in the community without having tremendous implications for the number who die in the health care systems we all will bring down also that's not a realistic view so this middle point of threading the ropes for the needle opening schools looking at younger people how do we use people already been infected when will we know if they've been infected do they ever munity right now how do we incorporate them back into society you know what I can only imagine what if I finally got this one day and I was now a medium I would not want to go through this I don't want to feel it but I think if I could see my grandkids because they didn't have to worry if I was going to transmit to them or their transmit to me how do we incorporate recovered people back into society in a way that eliminates some of this do you if you see anybody with a plan for that that's what we need right now that's what we're trying to promote is looking at all these issues put him on the table we won't get it right the first time we will not get it right the second time but we can keep working on it to sustain society minimize transmission of this virus and pray to god that we get an effective vaccine one thing that I have seen people on the plane for is do a ton of tests you've got everything from test everybody to test everybody every day every time you go into the workplace of it and people say you know when we can reopen safely when we have a lot of tests I'm not sure you know different people their definition of a lot is different do you think that's right is there a threshold of tests that will be like okay now we can open well first of all we have to be practical and what I mean by that is that we can't invent something that doesn't exist and we will not be able to sustain and even in this country alone on a global basis other kind of testing the people promoting right now you know it's so this is how I came to you and said I want a new hundred story building in downtown New York can you have it done by the end of the month okay we just don't have the infrastructure we don't have the capability to do that so we have to be realistic and to be realistic but testing is important and we can sure do a lot better at testing but we won't have that capacity in the short term to do.

"And I have to say I've been using it the last few months have felt like after initially this not being the case that in my house when I shout out of command to the home pod. I see my watch fire. I see my phone like light up every device lights up in this house. And then the home pot answers when I'm talking to the home pot. And that has in the last couple of months has worked really reliably. And I don't know what they're doing. Exactly. But they're trying to do what Apple's goal is. They want the lady to be you know, the or the British gentlemen, the assistant to be everywhere and available from every device, and they don't want you to think about the context. They don't want you to have to talk to a specific device for a specific context. They want you to say it in the air, and the right device will tell you what to do based on your body position. And where your wrist is. And where your phone is laying down, and if it's been used recently, and and how you're talking to the home pod. And all of those things get integrated together, it does some very quick judgments about who you're talking to. And then that device picks it up. I think that is the right goal for apple. I think it should be that. I think that they need to keep working on it. But I think that ultimately you should just talk to the assistant in the air, and it should figure out what it needs to do like to the point. Where if I if? If the iphone says, oh, you wanna play music, but I'm laying down I'm charging. And I think maybe it's doing this already. It's like you probably don't want me to play the music, right? There's a home pot in this room. You're almost certainly talking to the home pot. Right. It should be smart enough to do that. That said I do think that putting power in the user's hands to say, you know, what I just want to address the home pod separately from my phone, and I want to change the trigger word to be different. Like, you should be able to do that. You should you should because I have a thing. Sometimes like I have like show. I want to run home pulse. Gonna jump in. And it's not gonna work, right? All like, I have a question. I wanna ask or thing. I want to do in the home pulse. Going to say you have to do that on your iphone. It's like, well, I knew that. But I call right, right? Like, I know this, right? It should be smart enough. To know. This command isn't for me. Let's try it out on the iphone. Right. And it doesn't always do that. Like, it's a good goal. And maybe they'll get there. Eventually. But in the meantime, yes, I think you should be able to just talk to the home pod. And and say, maybe even in addition to maybe it's maybe it's a specific wake word that you can demand the home to process instead while it will also listen to your own telephones. I don't know, but I feel like being a good friendly device for the human beings who use it will. It would be a nice feature for apple dad. So last week apple in American Airlines violence that you'll be able to listen to music for free without paying for the wifi. When you're in the air. So doggone asks, do you think American Ellen's will also allow free streaming apples videos of us? Absolutely. Yes. The catalog of video is much smaller than the catalog music.
