"The writers of those articles than. It's not to matter that you have a rapid response you can't rapidly respond or news jack. Something that happened two months ago. It's just not relevant and that really depends on the industry and how fast it moves and and the climate and if there's if there is a timeline involved than you might be able to do it so once you've decided to do this new jack in canada. There's three things. I think you should definitely consider once you decide to do that. What you do. Is you find the reporters who wrote about their original news. And you use those reporters as you're target audience for following up and send them your news jacked or spun around ankle so hopefully this can help you. Try to news jack something. It's really fun. I find it like more of a creative thing to do in the pr space and it can definitely drive amazing amounts of brand awareness and kind of like just admiration for your brand. If you do it right take a look at the pilot on wife commercial and then the aviation jin follow up commercial really funny. You'll see exactly what i'm talking about. They do on amazing job. And i don't remember how far apart they were so obviously that one's not going to happen immediately right commercials but if they happen within the span of like let's say a month and especially since no one's expecting a response it was really funny and you can take a look at the big mac mcdonald's menu. I think if you to google so take a look at those. Try it out news. Jacking is really fun. pr activity. It could really if if you become known for new jacking.

"Shots might seem a little cheese ball, but our people really are this happy that why? Because we're privately funded privately funded means freedom. We organized trips every week in and around the Portland area, which is just awesome for hiking biking and river running. When you? Your company reached out to me. I was flattered but I don't really know why you would want me is true. Successfully impregnated a male field mouse. He didn't carry the term. You something tour. What did you say? A human room. Obviously. Judging from the decomposition of the and Dmitri, and I would say that the woman was somewhere seventies actually she's twenty six. What happened to her? told her that you could have complete freedom and money to find out. Rethink your special doctor, Park and we want you to lead a team of highly trained people because we think you're just that. Good. Can't, can't. my Ex husband wouldn't let me wouldn't want to have this opportunity. No, he doesn't want me to have anything. He would never give the okay. It's we could reach out on your behalf. He would. To. Advice about that that would work. was totally inappropriate. No. Way State your time. So it's burke please. Don't worry. Whatever you think of him. I'm, not. I'm not, a leader Mr Alpert. Juliet sometimes, leaders can be messes. It's okay. Belt Line I'm not a leader I'm a method. There's so much good stuff here but the first thing I want to start out with his actually talking about the background stuff with the middle owes presentation because obviously that's bogus. But if you look into the behind the scenes stuff, it even paints a bigger picture as to how bogus that is. Because Josh, I know if you recognize the photos but two of them are from lost filming locations. Yes. Yeah. Koloa ranch jets. Mary the which I love. I love the fact that they clearly just took pictures on the island and crudely photoshop even though you can't Photoshop Polaroid at this point I'm still putting my foot down on that. You can photoshop, Rando scientists into filming locations on the island to make it seem like the middle owes is. Is really just the bastion of scientific achieve ARY apparently also the people that got photographs from from the island. Apparently, one of the photos was also Dr to replace a Jurassic Park sign with the middle. Oh, signed. Yeah. Richard Alpert man. SORTA strange though to see this is the Richard Alpert debut when you know the full Richard Alpert Act. which is what are the most likely to what you do origin stories in history to have him coming here like generic guy in a suit pitching a shadow company for Dharma is like very much day? Yeah. This guy, the eighteen hundreds who is a? Susan mortal who had like a Kebab crane here gone to like this argument between God of the devil got into a knife fight with God. Like commune with his dead wife a couple of times. Yeah. It's just funny to think. Then he also like at some point in time he learned powerpoint Yep exactly like you learn how to get out of basic freezing tation but multiple times, right? Because here's the thing middle of this will not be the last time we hear about this because John Locke in cabin fever is going to get a similar type visit from Richard, Alpert, nominate powerpoint style, but more of an interactive style, what they choose your weapon, but he's going to be pimping out the middle of summer science camp. So clearly middle owes. Obviously means something else as we talked about but Richard is sort of become like the face of middle OHS and yeah, I mean, this is obviously it's a big reveal at the time because we don't know who this guy is obviously after the fact now knowing Richard Alpert as it's very clear, he is just duping Juliet into signing onto the Dharma 'cause but yeah, it's it's interesting to see considering how much Richard is going to represent Jacob from here on out even starting as soon as later on this season to have him really serve as. The moment I representing Ben here is a bit of a surprise. You see him again the next time you see him as the man from Tallahassee, and that's when when Ben is GonNa show up to lock and bring him to Anthony Cooper and he's going to be pretty silent there. But I think this must just be another. One of those examples of they really liked with Nestor Carbonell was putting down just in the flashbacks of this episode. Eyelashes to die for yeah truly. So. It's the beginning of the Richard Alpert art. Love a lot more to do love Juliet's for pulling a Katie hair and here from being girls and manifesting that admin will get hit by a bus. We'll get into it but she she ends up planting that seed unintentionally. So we're not far away from that. All right. So the next part of this episode called the gang rescues car? The. The island they used the powerpoint presentation. Yeah. So here comes skinny Mac yeah. It's sad. He got sort of subdued. You're going to go into full nightmare in Kung Fu mode to really take down them. But here he is rum Micheletti himself as Aldo stemming through a brief history of time as the only guard in today three. Yes, the erstwhile Ronald Mac McDonald a before. He became super jacked Mac before he became fat Mac he was just regular Mac and he was Aldo here on the island. This is like this is the thing he does like he was allegedly Background player in. In one point in time. That de had also previously written on. It's always sunny like I think they made appearances on it's always sunny as well. They wrote on Cameo on his sunny day in that they wrote and directed. Flowers for and. I believe that in this case, it wasn't that Lindelof accused of connection I. Think it's more so that like McLennan and Lindelof were friendly and I think Nicolini was probably one of those big fans of the show that said. You're on to. Where he was such a famous friend that initially they had said that he had died I think in the season three commentary they said like, yeah, and then like you're you're Jason's on your Aldo's all blew up in the tense but I think Michael any kind of pester them for it. So they decided to bring him back for season six. Is the final season he must have been a huge fan so so that's great. So shame that Sweet D did not show. The. Right. Bird. Heard. The full gang on the island would be incredible. Love to see how they put. Danny. devito on. There is frank. Oh, my God. Yeah if the if the gang recreated like did a lost reboot.

"For ME GROWING UP IN CHICAGO. McDonald's was always around. We had birthday parties at McDonald's because her apartment was on on the small size I went to McDonald's after work in high school and after school. It was the go-to meal when my mom Um and I were driving far distances and we needed something to eat and so I have probably spent most of my life inside of McDonald's so the fact that I wrote a book about McDonald's. McDonald's is actually not that surprising. This is Marsha chatwin. She's a professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University and her new book. The book about McDonalds. It's called franchise the Golden Arches in Black America and speaking of the Golden Arches. There's another new book out called drive through dreams. James A Journey through the heart of America's fast-food kingdom it's by journalist. Adam Chandler the Golden Arches are thought to be according to independent survey more recognizable as a symbol. Both then the Christian crosses around the world recognizable or no. I didn't imagine we'd ever focus an entire episode on McDonald's but here we are Dr Together. Adema Marsha Taylor story about McDonald's that is about much more than McDonald's making it perfect for gastropod and we of course our guest repod the podcast. That looks at food through the Lens of science in history. I'm Cynthia Graber and I'm Nikola twilly and this episode. We're getting to the bottom of how McDonald's took over America. The story starts with WHO invented the hamburger burkart. And how did it become so ubiquitous that it gets bigger from there this episode. We're asking his McDonald's basically America's national cuisine and if it is is what can it tell us about who we are as a country less. How did the tax payer ended up funding the spread of McDonald's in the inner cities and why we're civil rights groups on board? Well whatever idea you have of of. How huge fast food is you should double or triple in your mind because the statistics are bonkers? They're completely bananas us. Eighty percent of Americans eat fast food every month. Ninety six percent of them eat fast food every year which is more than the number of Americans that participate participate on the Internet atom. Says there's not a single place in America that eighty percent of Americans go to at least monthly not a library or Jim or any house of worship according according to the Centers for Disease Control which is not happy about this stat. More than a third of American children eat food every day and for the population as the whole. It's roughly the same thirty six percent of us. Eat it every single day out of all the fast food available to us in the US. The biggest I the most popular chain the one that serves literally one percent of the world's population every day of course it's McDonald's which according to somewhat recent stats sells seventy five burgers every second and Serbs sixty eight million people per day. There is no real way to get your head around numbers that large. But what's weird is that's is makes McDonald's the biggest almost everything everything. It does so marshalled as the McDonald's is even the largest distributorship toys in the world just because of happy meals. At how do they get that big to answer that we we have to go back to the beginning. It all starts about one hundred years ago with the invention of the hamburger. Well there is a lot of debate as is debate about anything culinary in this world about who invented invented any particular item there are many authors but a lot of historians culinary or otherwise. We'll give credit to Walt Anderson. And he was a fry cook in Wichita who one day in one of those kind of Isaac Newton Aha moments got really frustrated when he was cooking a meatball on a griddle and smashed it flat right with the SPATULA and the result was a burger that cooked through really quickly and he put them in these specialty buns. And that's sort of the most recognizable version of of the Burger that we have well Anderson's meatball. Smashing moment was a breakthrough. He went onto lunch white castle. And that what is believed to be the very first fast food chain in the nineteen teens and twenties. There weren't fast food chains. Americans lived in a very different world less connected less cosmopolitan. I'm a politician. Even as late as nineteen twenty five only half of all the homes in the United States had `electricity even fewer had indoor plumbing. People weren't used to dining finding out regularly. Generally speaking there wasn't a unified culinary culture. There wasn't one item. We had ethnic enclaves that had their own specific blends of items that that were cherished and part of a tradition but in the nineteen twenties America was starting to change. The model t was becoming more affordable and the number of people who owned cars more than quadrupled. Adam told us that nineteen twenty was the first year that more Americans lived in cities the not the US was starting to become urban. The First World War was the first mechanized war and the nineteen twenties. He's was the machine. Age Technology promise to streamline and modernize every aspect of American life the nineteen twenties was also. The beginning of radio's Golden Age and more and more people started to tune into music and mystery and comedy shows. Radio started to create a national culture at the end of World War One reserved this unifying aspect to American elect. Technology was bringing about and the hamburger was part of that was part of finding a national diet. The hamburger did have one hurdle to overcome Americans. At the time. I'm was scared of ground meat. They were scared of it. Because they'd all read the jungle by Upton Sinclair and they were nervous about the quality of the food. The jungle was a really important book from the Early Nineteen Twenties. We talked about it in our episode. On the history of preservatives. It told the tale of a semi-fictional worker in a Chicago. Slaughterhouse and the nightmarish conditions there for both the workers and the resulting meat while Anderson than meat ball smashing genius behind the hamburger. He was fully aware that Americans thought ground meat was likely full of dirt and and dead rats and even workers fingers so what he did was he designed these stores that all look the same. They had stainless steel interiors white tiles and they look like castles and white castle was meant to kind of convey this stately safe grandeur of a place where you could go and it would be the same everywhere you went so it was meant to reassure consumers. Who didn't really know what was safe to eat? And that really set the tone for what would come in the future of these industries of franchising of seeing something wherever you are in saying. Oh I knew it. I'm going to get here. This is familiar to me. White Castle was the first to open in franchise fast food restaurants. But it isn't the biggest today as you all know. That title goes to McDonald's. McDonald's brothers were these two men from New Hampshire sure who had kind of seen the extremes of the great depression and they headed out to California to see where they could strike business. Gold Dick and Mac McDonald headed West in nineteen thirty. They were in their twenties and their thought was. Maybe they can make it big in the movies. That didn't find as much success as they'd hoped they were two sons of a shoe factory foreman and they found success more for in the business side of production the catering. They went from that into the restaurant business. They opened up a barbecue. Stand in nineteen forty and southern California and and it was one of the drivers of the era. That people are often familiar with car. hops in major at boots and a young guys cruising in in cars and people hanging out and just kind of a big scene and they were successful. First restaurant was called McDonald's and it was in San Bernardino which is just east of La. It's meaningful that. McDonald's started in southern California because southern California was really where a lot of changes that overtook. America were happening kind of on on steroids by the early nineteen forties. The Great Depression was finally over. San Bernardino is shifting from being farming town to more of a manufacturing and service industries industry center people were moving their into the growing city and suburbs and increasingly. They had a little disposable income but also San Bernardino was on route sixty six and so it was a place where a lot of people were traveling throughout California as well through as the rest of the country. So Dick and Mac McDonald. Were doing pretty well for themselves. But but then after eight years in the restaurant business. They surprised everyone by deciding to close their popular successful restaurant and entirely revamp it. The re diagram to what the kitchen would look like they use this assembly line model that White Castle and kind of employed and they cut the menu items from twenty five to nine. They also fired all all of the young women who are car hops because they felt like they were flirty and they would distract from the work that was happening there. They also wanted to pivot away from being a teen hangout to family friendly place. They got rid of silverware because people would steal it or break it and they went to wrapping Burgers in paper and they wanted to create the most efficient kitchen possible in order to serve as many people as possible. And so the revision of the McDonald's drive in is what we are living with today a highly automated mechanized kitchen and that is able to produce high volumes of food and a very short period of time. What they did was they basically just souped up the kitchen and turned it into a factory? An assembly line dusted with Hollywood magic. And the result was they could serve food for cheap even cheaper than their previous menu items had been. I didn't know what to make of it but it caught on very quickly. This new McDonald's factory style restaurant didn't just catch on with eaters. It became a total phenomenon. Within the restaurant industry. Eight people were coming from all over the country to kind of hear and see what was going on because there were these whispers in the industry about this place that was so popular and and you know there were long lines and people were talking about this place. That was not just serving a lot of people but serving a lot of people quickly so eventually the founders of Burger King Taco bell a couple of other chains that didn't quite make it ultimately stopped by and they copied with McDonald brothers. Were doing as Z.. Listeners know some of those copycats are still around today. One of the businessmen who came to see it was none other than Ray KROC. He was a salesman and he sold the mixing machines machines for milkshakes and the McDonald Brothers had bought a shockingly large quantity of these machines so great thought he'd go and see what they were doing with them. Ray had been in nearly every kind end of commercial kitchen available. At the time. He'd played jazz at speakeasy. During prohibition he'd sold kitchen and restaurant supplies around the country so he came to the McDonald's restaurant in San Bernardino we know and he saw the crowds and he was completely blown away by it and so immediately said this needs to be national. This needs to be everywhere. Ray convinced the brothers. Let him start working with them before long. He bought them out. And the tool that ray us to fulfil his dream of taking this model national and then global global was the franchise so franchising is this concept that a parent company provides all of the blueprints and the instructions and the recipes for a product or service and the Franchisee pays Hayes for the right to deliver that good or service to an audience. Ray KROC didn't invent this franchise model White Castle had already been using it and in fact many experts think that at the root of the idea goes back to the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages tax collectors did the work of the church and collected tithes and the kept some of the money for themselves at the start of the twentieth century. Rick Coca Cola had used the franchise model to make their sugary drink available at drugstores across America. But it was ray KROC who really took this franchise idea and ran with it. The franchise model. I think is amazing because it allows companies to pass on all of the liability to this other party so so that was sort of the way in which McDonald's grew really quickly and also took a lot of the risk out from opening places and this is the way they maintained control over franchisees so it was consistent. You didn't have rogue franchisees trying to sell Pepsi when you had a contract to sell coke and so it was a complicated system. But it's what turned McDonald's into the the biggest in the fastest growing fast food restaurant. The

"Your patient to make good decisions about the rural health absolutely and that's one of the most critical roles and I'd say one of the hardest things to do to get the train running as you. I have to lead yourself and that's a that's a journey debt Gary I would say in my recent years of training as a coach and both formerly and now with several personal one on one coaches that a lot of my work has been developing myself in ways that I didn't think I needed to but I have discovered or or critical and I'll bet gary if you look back at your life and career U._C.. Your own journey in how much your leadership has developed developed over time. I bet you really chart that in and out that that's a great feeling and recently I've become a extremely interested in the whole <hes> science of emotional intelligence I think of emotional intelligence as being a a <hes> of a body of work that we can always be better at and always improve and should be a lifelong quest to to be improving our emotional intelligence <hes> and that's another piece piece in the leadership puzzle for sure sure absolutely and <hes> so so good for you I mean I think it's a critical piece in with dentist. Frankly it's an often overlooked piece because we tend to be technical technically trained technical thinkers in in we don't embrace that to the extent it would really really impact our performance in in our direction in elected jump back for a second to something you said a little while ago. Maybe get your your comments on it when you were talking about culture 'cause I I really agree that. Cultures really probably are most powerful lever in for me. It's a lot more about about how things feel what our beliefs beliefs in our values are and how we have they show up in in our practice in our office because I bet in those twenty two hundred offices that you've been in and worked with that you showed up in some of them and said this place feels great eight and he showed up and other ones and said displaced feels stressful and not so great that's happened. It's actually palatable yeah. It's palatable and it's a feeling that you can get rather quickly and patients feel it as well uh-huh and I'll tell you that <hes> I've made my life's work to study phenomenally successful practices and there is not a practice that you and I would would characterize as phenomenally successful that the the the the dentist hasn't created an intentional culture and and Khan and worked on it and work done in work done it and sometimes it evolves and morphs over time based on <hes> you know yes where you are at this stage of career <hes> her but there is an exceptional practice on the planet that hasn't spent dedicated time on nurturing developing their culture <hes> and it's often overlooked dynamic e-e-e-e-no in a practice. I think I think <hes> you know to some degree when when I'm at a lower emotional intelligence level I'm impatient. You've never been impatient. I'm sure that maybe you have a friend. Yes exactly every day yes when I'm feeling impatient I have to catch myself and in sort of put some context in it but I think sometimes of younger doctors I see you know trying to push the development of the practice. <hes> through you know tactics through wealth. I just had more new patients. You know <hes> so they get into the tax. You know I'm stuck at this level. I need you know I need twenty-five percent more new patients and on the surface that may be a partial answer but really I like to look at it more to Italy and say well wait a minute <hes>. Let's make sure we have the back door closed one hundred two percent cut because how are we. How effective are we with patients we do have and are we finding <hes> you know?.

"The deal of evidence now in the business literature to establish that Berry thing you and I know that from are experiencing observation your experiences extensive twitching hundred dental practices is extraordinary but but for sure data that's it the literature says that they can correlate effective leadership of the level of leadership effectiveness with business performance in that correlates time and time again and I think you can correlate the inverse to say without audit businesses. Don't perform as well in cultures. Don't don't grow as well in fact <hes> <hes> the gentleman that wrote the Culture Code <hes> heard him you may they have interviewed him on a podcast <unk> town and he talked about a twenty year study done by Harvard professor took a while to find this book but it was done a while back and they correlated over seven hundred fifty eighty six percent improvement or betterment of Prophet in businesses that had strong cultures versus businesses that did not so in a dental practice. I think jol especially but Joel my partner would agree that our culture is our competitive advantage in the marketplace in so we see the idea of first developing helping the leader to develop their leadership skills and strengthen them mm-hmm so that they have developed some clarity about there are harder man will and where they wanna go so then we can be able to create a culture around that because without that leader being that way what you said is so true the team will create a culture just may not be the one that serves the interest of the patient or the practice owner right this you know the author that Culture Code is a brilliant book. If if you're interested in <hes> you know expanding your knowledge base in the in the world of leadership it was written by Daniel Coil and I just flat out brilliant <hes> another another author that I would introduce to our listeners and we didn't talk about this head of time Mac but I suspect <hes> it's in your library as well <hes> but it's <hes> Jim Coleman <hes> and <hes> the concept of <hes>. What was his book titled? It's <hes> it's eluding me right now but good too great get good Jim Collins Jeff the entire call a good great and he introduced the one of the chapters in the book. Good Great was <hes> the five levels of leadership define. The five different levels leadership <hes> and level five was the highest possible tier. You're of leadership and the way he defined Jim. Collins defined level five was that it was someone who is highly accomplished but also humble some extremely accomplished in any well you want to measure accomplishment but maintained their humility through the process and you know he said that you know to develop at every tear you know a level one leader can be an effect effective to a certain point a level two liter can be more effective in three and four and then but the ultimate <hes> kind of definition of it was someone achieving level five leadership and use some great examples in the book to <hes> to provide examples of what that meant and the differences in into organization <hes> as well along those lines. Oh I have a kind of a fundamental. I'll put on the spot here Mac. I have could a fundamental question that I think some of our listeners might be thinking. What's the difference in your mind? What's the difference between leadership up in management so both are critical and a well run business but this is how I I would.

"It helped me to develop the clinical skill sets but also philosophical a behavioral skill sets like a you're talking about that that are from Paul Ryan <hes> works <music> of through the Bob Barclay steady club and in the concepts of code <unk> discovery in so many things that really change how we care for patients on so that's been a big part in in of my practice practice in career development in the beginning in the mid nineties I became a visiting faculty member there and then in the late nineties around two thousand had the opportunity to participate in workshops in Dr Frank Spears office before four spirit education move to Scottsdale and it was the Seattle area then yeah yeah so at that time frank had a beautiful office that Greg kinnear still practices out up. He had a conference room. They're they're B twelve twelve Denison Franken he would do a workshop and while I went up took basically generate treatment planning which is kind of the conceptual piece that really helped frank to blossom and it really changed me as well. It was another layer a or learning there in pertinent today Gary. It was the first time that I participated in a leadership of vent in it was just quite a surprise for me how it turned out <hes> because this would have been around the two thousand and I had read I don't know how many books on leadership and taking classes and done probably not as many of the things that you've done in that regard but a lot in a Finnish officially degenerate treatment plan and I was visiting with Debbie who is a business manager for Dr Spirit that time and said hey look. What class should I take next? She said you should take leadership class. I said Debbie or you certain. She said yes MAC. I'm certain give me your American Express card and let's get you signed and she's phenomenal and it just valued every single thing about it and I will have to tell you and yes. I'm glad I didn't know if you knew deb your that. She's she's terrific that away and so from then on I would just take a class in walk in Andhra my American Express card. We'd start working on the next glass for the one that you should think I should take that was exactly the way it was will and Daddy. Eddie turned out to be spot on like the leadership class. I thought I was coming to two and a half days of leadership training his annuity and it was two and a half days of very deep dive into myself and it was a group therapy painful emotional uh-huh oh my goodness what have right thing. There isn't a day that goes by that. I don't reference things from that experience to this day and then when it's time to sign up for the next class I said Okay W I've had a lot of inclusion classes. This is an hillside story <unk> but since you know Gary I said I'd done a lot of inclusion with panky in Dawson in other places. Could I skip the basic inclusion workshop and go to the advanced with no MAC. You have to take it. Give me your American Express card and so I did turns out that was more of the best learning events I've ever had. Debbie was spot on so that's kind of my training and development because of our mutual friend Dr Leeann Brady and Gary would I got to be visiting faculty <hes> a summit Spirit Gatien as well down Scottsdale and lead time going out there <hes> and so that's Kinda back story until I ventured into the idea of doing a coaching leadership development up for dentists and that's a more recent venture when I think of the topic of leadership in in Dentistry I think of you and I I love your perspective on this <hes> but I wanna ask something very fundamental okay. Can you help our listeners. I understand the importance of leadership in creating. I'M GONNA call it an exceptional practice a thriving practice a help our listeners understand stand the role of leadership in that journey yeah so great question and Gary as we developed this idea. I think actually you would be a great case study in leadership towards the question you just ask ass because <unk> leadership essentially a leader brings the weather to the organization day lead in so <hes> to a great degree that defines what can and can't happen and so.

"Hello. I'm Keith Kramer. I run a drive in Jacksonville. And I came to see what you do it. I must say, I'm really impressed. The man behind the window smiles. Good to meet you, Mr Cramer. I'm MAC, MAC McDonald. I run this place where my brother dick, you say you came all the way from Florida just to see us. Well, let me show you around. Mac leads Kramer through the kitchen. We used to be a regular Dr in business was good. But we felt we could do better and faster. So we fired the car hops and went self-service firing those gals on roller skates, also meant teenage boys, stop loitering around. So now, we get more families. We also cut the menu back to the most popular items, burgers, shakes brise, so food. You can eat with your hands. So there's no glassware. Cutlery just paper, wrappers and paper cups. The small menu make service quicker to. Mac takes Kramer over the Griddle and continues his story. Everyone in our kitchen has a specialty see my brother dick over there. He man's the Griddle guy next to him dresses a hamburger the guy over there does nothing but fry French fries. And this guy does the shakes using those multi mixer machines. Kramer's impressed this kitchen. It's like a machine an assembly line. May I ask do you make more money this way? Max shrugs can't do no harm to tell you before we made about two hundred thousand dollars a year in sales. Now, we make well over three hundred thousand and our costs are third of what they were. After the tour Kramer, rejoins burns in the car burns looks at him expectedly. Well, what's it? Like, it's the greatest hamburger business ever seen. We get back to Jacksonville.

At least for a while. So here in the new studio, man, this is awesome. This new studio fancy. Yeah. Took you guys. What about four years to gosh? Forever. Really cool really high tech for an electrician like me. I love it. This is really really cool. I got a computer got three screens in front of me while I feel I can my my office right now. Yeah. So, hey, listen, you know, with you know. Today is kind of a show for me and Bill is here with me. But the main thing I really like to do here on this show is get folks to call because I know you've got questions, I know, you know. Have electrical things that aren't working in your home and your curious why they don't or or they do work sometimes, and they don't work sometimes or you think you have ghosts in your house and like some of the lights go DEM. Sometimes, you know, weird things like that. So that's why I'm here today. And I'm not sure why bills here today because he's you know, he's wearing his Florida's shirt. So yeah, I know he's anxious for his Florida game with South Carolina today. South Carolina kickoffs at noon, so I basically have no life. You. And we're not we're not in the mowing season anymore. There's this no chores to do. That's there's always something to do around the house, right while we already have a caller. That's so cool. So somebody is really got has has a problem. They've anxiously been waiting since midnight last night today. Well, here let let me let me start us off before we get to the caller while still talking to him. I'll be in the shower and in my bathroom, and that's a good place to have the shower right in the bathroom. Would be sitting at her vanity in the bedroom and she'll turn on the blow dryer and the lights dim. So I mean, isn't that an issue or what what's happening there? Well, yeah. So the issue is is you've you've got too much stuff on that circuit essentially a blow dryer, if you look at pretty much any piece of equipment. You know, like an appliance of dry or a toaster anything like that. It's going to have some sort of amperage rating and dryers actually pulled quite a bit. So you know, like back in the seventies and eighties the homes. They're built during those times you had the garage circuit was tied into the bathroom circuits, and I'm saying plural because if you've got multiple two bathrooms, let's say those two bathrooms would be tied in with the garage. And also like the outside receptacles, so the front porch the back porch. So you've got all of those receptacles tied in on that one circuit. And that's a pretty common fine. For me. Is is you know, hey, my bathroom doesn't work and in our system, and our cool little system we have we're able to. You know, look look at the home the year of the home, the value of the home. How many bedrooms how many bathrooms it is? So it's kind of is tied in with our system. So it makes it really cool. So we can even see the value of your home and all of the special things that go along with it. So looking at that, if we see that it's, you know, seventies or eighties than we, you know, for me as a technician if I'm rolling up on your home. I I already have that in the back of my mind that I'm thinking, hey, maybe we should check that out and see if that's the case. And if it is then we can split that circuit up. So we can isolate the bathrooms individually from the outside circuits in their garage circuits because in this kind of leads into this time of the year the Christmas lights. Yep. So people start plugging in their Christmas lights and then their wife. It's that blow dryer and the whole thing shuts down, right? Yeah. The breaker pops or the G F I pops or something like that. So there again, you know, now now you've got all of those receptacles tied in on one circuit, you're plugging in all of these Christmas lights, and then your wife hits the hairdryer, or, you know, in case in in my case, I've got a daughter that's gotta hairdryer in a flat ner curler. And you know, about you know, about Twenty-one ants going at the same time. So literally the whole lighthouses house goose goes in there for a little while. So, you know, hopefully that kind of answers your question there Bill is is we've got so we've got Jim here with sealer on concrete question. I'm not sure if I can answer that or not. But maybe that might be a thing for Bill here. Let's see. Jim you there? Hello. This is Ken. Right one. Yup. Ken Jenne phone? I'm sorry. Anyway, we had our driveway done with the decorative concrete covering, and it's edge rock, but when it gets wet now it gets very slippery. I was thinking of putting a sealer on it and put that grit that they have you can put into a sealer to add some traction. But I'm concerned if I if I do that when I drive on the driveway specially car without tires that grits gonna pull some rubber or something off of the tires. And after a while I'm going to start getting like dirty looking driveway or you can see the tread line. So the cars going in and out of the driveway. I'm worried it might be to of actually use on a driveway. Good point. I'll let you chairman on that. What's your opinion on that? Because all I can offer is my opinion. I would almost kind of agree with that possibly. Yeah. I would agree. It'll start showing aware line after a while driving in and out. You know, how long ago was the driveway poured probably about two years. Okay. You know, usually, I mean, whenever I have something done around the house all go back to the people that have done it. They should be the experts on these things, and they might have a good opinion on. I I really I would just be guessing right whatever the situation is they're just covering blacktop. And they need not have to worry about the bacteria. Solution. Possible solution. Jen. Okay. Well, that was my question. Thank you. Very good luck. Man. Okay. Yes. So. Yeah. So hopefully that answers the question on that for you Bill, and you know, one thing I want to throw out there as a, you know, just as a reminder over on our kind of a sister station. I guess is what you call it ESPN five eighty. Yeah. So we in phase electric is is hosting. What's called the fairways greens? It's going to be a golf tournament fairways greens golf tournament. And I was trying to find the the date here. Let's see. I know it's December the second which is on Monday. And you know, so Tony Austin, MAC McDonald. We've got we're trying to get some, you know, some maybe former pro NFL folks, you know, things like that out there. So it's kind of a pro-am style tournament is going to be like a best ball type tournament. Also. So it's you know, that's just wanted to throw that out there. And you know, so again we want callers to call in today. Give us a call. Let's talk electrical bills here. So we can talk kitchens and also a little quick shout out to our friend Tim out there. So I'm not sure what Tim's out today. I haven't seen him in a while. It's been a while. But you know, so Bill with or Tim with what's of what is the name of his accurate window, factory windows and doors, plural. And that's right on the end. So I I do remember that. So and those guys, you know, I've been when I have been on the show with with Tim a few times vary. Extremely knowledgeable on windows and doors, and and just just anything and everything you could possibly imagine with regards to windows and doors that is. Good information there. So we've got Ron that has called dual inverted AC. This might be the question that I can't answer because I'm still waiting on that question. Over a year now, and I just haven't been hit with a question. I can't answer. So hopefully, you got one for me, Ron. Well, my understanding is a I thanks for your show. I listen to you all the time. I'm looking into dual inverted which friend of mine said that it's direct current versus alternating and it automatically slows the fan speeds. And I checked dueling verte refrigerators versus regular refrigerators. And it seems like it's half the power just it seems new, and of course, newness is always apprehension for the consumer. So I just if you had an opinion there's a lot of l g outside units. I'm looking at the L G wall unit for a Florida room twenty two thousand that only draws you can plug it into a fifteen to twenty. So that's quite a bit less. Now. This is this is in regards to air conditioning. Is that correct? Correct. Gotcha. Okay. Yeah. My understanding are the best information. We've had so far is is that it's it's like a direct current instead of an alternating current that keeps that varies the fans and the compressor speeds instead of on off on off so dual dual rotary compressor. So it has its rotary or scroll, but you know. Yeah. Yeah. So it's it looks like it's from what I'm looking at here faster cooling, higher energy savings. So yeah, there's constantly new technology coming out, and and on my end, you know, when with regards to, you know, an invert or. What I'm thinking, they're probably eliminating the trans the capacitor is what just off the top of my head. Because this this is kind of diving into a question that I probably can't answer because it involves air conditioning. But I'm assuming that they're probably getting rid of the capacitor to go with a dual invert. So instead of having to use air, you know, a alternating current to run through the capacitor they're attempting to use dual current and inverting the AC to the DC, which you know, essentially could eliminate some energy usage there and also be a little bit easier on the equipment because of you ever hear an air conditioner kick off and on. It's it's like sometimes I'm outside my yard. And I'm like, you know, just it's so loud the way these things you have to start up and it's hard on the equipment. So the I I would. Thank you very much, Ken or Ron. Loss's name there was that Ron that that one there. Yeah. That was wrong. All right. So many y'all walked in. We've had been having issues with names. All right. Why don't we go ahead and take a break while we gather some calls here. Eight four four to.

"Radio six eighty WCBS. Just additional note, by the way. I'm interesting piece by Daniel Johnson. VS guy writes, good stuff sometimes this over an American figure. I'll get this for you. What is really happening right now. We're seeing witness to a degree. Is that liberals Democrats the left the legacy media? Prattle on about the toxic rhetoric. It's all Donald Trump's fault. Horrible, man, yada, yada, yada. But it's actually the party of the left that is finally every symmetric. Would you always stuns me to see American Jews voting for Democrats? Just it stuns me. One of the revered voices inside of the democrat party. Of course, Al Sharpton. Quote, if the Jews wanna get it on telling the pin their yarmulkes is back and come over to my house. Send a rally in Harlem nineteen ninety one. Few days later, a young black boy is killed when struck by a car driven by Hasidic Jew for three nights Jews in crown heights. Subjected to what one Columbia University, professor called a modern day pogrom two people died two hundred injured on day two of the riots. Sharpton March of about four hundred protesters into chrome hearts shouting, no Justice. No peace days later shirt referred to Jews living in crown heights. As diamond merchants. And he called whites moving businesses into Harlem interlopers. No, no sitting next to sharpen at this. Little boy's funeral was Farrakhan whose clam Hinton whose hand rather Clinton shook and his picture taken with Obama there. Great buds. Farrakhan, the leader of the nation of Islam. Is a virulent anti Semite and anti American. He's called Judaism, a gutter religion said equally unpleasant things about Jews as individuals or as a group. But you don't see the democrat party trying to put any distance between themselves and him. Can you imagine? If they're a photograph out there. Donald Trump with his arm around David Duke. Can you imagine? Well, there is a photograph of Barack Obama hanging out with his good, buddy. Louis Farrakhan, by the way. That picture was taken by a ski a Mohammed. A who took the picture and showed Fox News Tucker Carlson, this pick of Obama unfair counts amounted to go. I'm sure you've seen this online all over the place by now. He said that as soon as you took the picture of the Congressional Black caucus contacted him demanded to have the photo back. And so he gave the original desk to the Congressional Black caucus, but he quietly made a copy for himself. He said he thought that the CBC was concerned that if photo with fair concord hurt the young senators future presidential aspirations, as well, it might she have a history of the Democrats are behaving in an anti Jewish fashion, anti-israeli fashion. They are the ones who want to cut the knees. Cut the legs out of the knees of Israel. But still American Jews a majority still say Democrats because they care about people like me, they don't. No, they don't. I came across a very interesting piece by by the way. Brian Mark Webber? Years ago. He points out that the president calling himself, a nationalist. We're not have made page in nineteen the paper the media responded with vitriol you heard Terrell west half hour. Are you a national white national while I'm white, and I'm a nationalist? But of course, the connotations of being white nationalist are kind of ugly. And that's no. And of course, Trump is Hitler. That's it. That's not the focus of wherever's piece. The focus is coming on some things that have been set back guy named Edward earlier is a professor emeritus of political science, California State University, San Bernardino, and this is what he said. And I posted this actually online this morning. Greater diversity means inevitably that we have less in common. And the more. We encourage diversity the less. We honor the common good. Any honest and clear settled observers should be able to see that diversity is a solvent that dissolves the unity and cohesiveness of a nation. See in a mere fifty years, we've gone from E pluribus Unum out of many one. To a desire, particularly the Democrats exclusively monthly to make it, you know. E own employer of us out of one many. We want to be able to divide ourselves up little camps. Know, we're gonna have the lesbian camp here. We'll have the gay guy camp there with the black guy camp over there. We'll have the black woman camp over there. Spanich I camp over there. We're no longer R E pluribus Unum. We are a nation. That is in the process of division. We're splitting apart. And I've been talking about this for some time, and Heather MAC McDonald, author of the diversity delusion. Said that. If a student who walks into an American campus is told to think of himself as one of three categories. He's the oppressed. And the oppressor or if you show sufficient enlightenment, and he's one of the oppressors he can move himself out of the oppressor category into the ally category. And of course for the left. If you're not an ally of the left. Well, you're the enemy the enemy. The second front in. This war of division is to flood this country with tens of millions of people from so many different cultures who have no desire to become Americans. No desire to adapt. Our values to adopt. Our beliefs. And that's part of what we're seeing the dynamics surrounding the mob. I'm sorry. The social mixer this coming our way from Honduras. I've always said, look if somebody wants to come to this country and become a citizen, and we think it is on our interest. They have that individual here. Then by all means do it on merit. Please come as long as you were dedicated to becoming an American citizen or you revere. The constitution you promised to end do learn English, and you become part of the onum. You become part of the one. But but the left has a very different analogy. For them to succeed for them seen in this election right now. They have to pander to various groups. They have to play them one against another. I mean, this this year, it seems to be white guys are the enemy for an awful lot of people on the left various groups, don't like white guys for one reason or another. All right. But we're told we have white privilege. Maybe that's why we're not like because then like the idea of us having privilege. Of course, I'm always a little confused as we're privilege. It is white guys by definition have that other groups of individuals don't have. Pie cholesterol. We younger. I mean, they're all kinds of shifts there. So if immigrants are told to come to this country and assimilate the political left hates that idea. They hate it. You're not supposed to assimilate. They're they're supposed to come here and maintain their culture and just kinda live here. We're not no longer a mixing bowl here. Inaugura big soup. We're like a chef salad. You have the piece of bacon over here. And you have the piece of lettuce over there and the cherry tomato over there. But we're not actually all one thing. We're all separate just kinda coexisting uncomfortably inside the same salad bowl. And sooner or later. Keep adding more and more ingredients that chef salad unless it becomes one. Then they salad bowl isn't big enough to hold all those groups. So then begin to push groups out. And the group that gets pushed out, of course, is the group who actually just wants to get up in the morning work. Come home. Love your wife kiss. Your kids have dinner watch TV hit the sack and do the same thing again tomorrow. That's the group that apparently we'll have to go first. Or if you think of it as the salad inside a pressure cooker. You're gonna make it cooked salad. Some sort you keep adding ingredients and soon the pressure cooker cannot handle all the pressure that builds up and the whole damn thing explodes. The whole thing explodes. So take a look what's happening right now from our from herself. You have this the social mixer the Honduran source from extra coming our direction. Mexico has offered asylum to those immigrants who apply at are qualified. This. No. The Mexican plant is called us and to CASA which is this is your home. Asylum seekers will be given identifying documentation jobs for adults schools for kids. And they would stay in one of Mexico's two southernmost states. That's the only caveat. The mob said no. We already there. So we're gonna keep moving north. But thanks so much. So they're not actually looking for asylum. They're not they're not looking for asylum. They're looking to run over the border melt into our population or into groups similar to theirs within our population with no interest whatsoever. In becoming Americans with no interest in learning. The constitution learning, the language, etc. Etc. Etc. NBC news reported that authorities are cracking down on smaller groups trying to catch up with the Bank caravan. The main caravan rather they've detained about three hundred hundred. As they walked along a highway after crossing the Mexican border illegally. Now the Mexican border if they decided to enter through mcallen, Texas, they still have about a thousand miles to go. The to San Diego where probably they stroll into the country as on two thousand miles to go. But make no mistake when the less says, oh, we have to be compassionate to these people. We have to help these people. These people they just want to be here. And it's our responsibility to help them. My first question is why is it our responsibility. Since that's pretty ill defined while they want asylum here, they just want to come here and work, really. What about the American citizens are here, and they're competing for those same jobs? Should we tell those American citizens just hanging around on welfare for the rest of your life? Because we have a whole new favored group here over the democrat. That is the case because what we're seeing is more and more black Americans deciding that the democrat plantation is no longer comfortable. And they're changing parties moving to independent or directly into becoming a conservative Republican. That's happening with more and more frequently. What are we supposed show the president with thirty six percent approval rating under black Americans if he got half of that? As a reelection in two thousand twenty half of that. Walk in to the White House. It'll be done. Think about what that means for the democrat party. And there were those numbers. They're scared like crazy. Explains. A lot of nonsense. We're seeing right now..

"Right. Well, Kurt Wednesday continues wildcard. Yes. While. Three one two nine eight one seven two hundred and artists any tho any song anything Steve requesting the spectrum TV theme song, but covered by beep house. Never heard of beep house, Dan, have you ever heard a beep house can't say that I have no. Well, there you go. Welcome back. Everybody nickel Gilio here on seven twenty WGN. We're live in the AllState skyline studio here until five AM. Steve Grzanich has the opening bell at five the great Steve Cochran at six with your morning drive on this Wednesday morning. We've been talking about restaurants iconic places that have changed their names and Dunkin donuts is changing their name to Dunkin, but they were actually as we discovered called open kettle. So this'll be the second time that they've changed their name. And Kentucky Fried Chicken is now KFC even though I still I still call a Kentucky Fried Chicken. Okay. Mcdonald's. Original name was McDonald's barbecue. Did you see that movie? Dan. Did you see the movie the founder chance? It was a good movie that was really one of those movies that I think deserve the bigger audience and everybody, and it was really really good John Carroll Lynch, Nick Offerman, Michael Keaton, you see what you just did there. What I do. What's a movie about McDonald's? She said they needed a bigger audience the movie needed a bigger audience, not McDonald's. They've got a pretty big audience. So. When you go overseas. When people go overseas they inevitably visit a McDonald's. It's like, okay. Can I comment on that? Yeah. When I was stationed in Okinawa, which is an island of a couple of hundred miles south of Japan. I think they're McDonald's was the precision that those people used to build the hamburgers was unmatched. Is that was just like the ad that you see that. They spent probably an hour for me to get the picture perfect. It was unbelievable really immaculate. I worked at McDonalds when I was a teenager, and we did not work. Well, we didn't care. Right. I mean, I see Zeke at hamburgers that are just slapped together. Not not where these boy that's well. Also in the one of the fantastic scenes in the film burnt. Explains. That day. Wait a minute. Let me before you do that. You think he's getting all this acclaimed because of burnt, yes. Stars born I can. Making up for it for not giving him the Oscar for burnt, but e points out that chef Schmidt looked down upon Burger King or McDonalds things like that because they've done what chefs throughout the ages have done is taken a common meal and fancied it up. It's a reasonable piece of meat available at a good price with goulash and some extra you know, from accoutrements that make it delicious. I do you know how much I love the fact that burnt is like your number one remote drop as much as I love. I just think it's this thing that is so amazing. And I hate that culture too. I hate that snobby foodie culture. I mean, not necessarily few people who appreciate which is like, I would never pay seven hundred dollars for a pigeon that he's put up, you know, some parsley. I just think that's fantastic. You know, many of us go back and watch dazed and confused over and over again, and I like midnight run and my cousin Vinny. Those are my favorite Goethe's. But Dan, Bradley Cooper's burnt which seven people saw who theater. I don't even remember I thought, and I don't even remember it. That's fantastic. So McDonald's used to be called McDonald's barbecue. It's unlikely that dick and MAC McDonald. Could have dreamed that they're California burger joint would one day become the most well known in profitable fast food restaurant in the world. Would it have been possible? If they kept the original name McDonald's barbecue, it's possible. But not likely. How about some texts that are coming in three one two nine eight one seven two hundred three one thousand nine hundred seventy seven six three area code six three area code and Caroline in Florida Baker square used to be poppin fresh. That's right. Used to be poppin fresh. I remember when it was poppin fresh, and I remember when they changed it to Baker square. I was like what's going on? Now. So Dan, do you remember when it was poppin fresh? I know that used to hang out at the Baker square. Never knew it as poppin fresh. Seven seven three area code you. Chucky cheese used to be show biz pizza. We talked about that actually last week. Boston market used to be Boston chicken. They offer more than chicken. That's why you can get Meatloaf and all kinds of other ham and all kinds of other stuff at the Boston market. So. All right. Denny's. Denny's used to be Danny's doughnuts. How does that? Danny's donuts that was once. Denny's Danny's switched to Denny's. Because of a mixup apparently customers kept confusing the original name with coffee, Dan's in, Los Angeles. So the co-founder distinguished his restaurant by changing it to Denny's coffee shop and in nineteen sixty one the name just got shortened to plain old Denny's. So this poor guy whose name is Danny had to change it because of coffee, Dan. Come on. Now. I did it doesn't seem fair to me. Guy had to change the name. Now, you if you're your namesake is, Dan if you had a business that had your name, and it would you want to change it to, Dan? No, see that's just not fair. Here is John on WGN. Hey, john. No watering, so. Walgreens had a restaurant called wags. Yeah. That's right. Sterling. W on a murky, and I saw what does that? And then I found out it was a restaurant. And I believe they saw what happened was running a restaurant. Well, there was it was. There was a wedding that we went my friends, and I went to wags all the time. It was right by the Portage theater. I'm walkie. There was food. Well, yeah. I mean, it was a diner. It was like a Denny's. If they served like, your your, basic, basic. Sold sold the franchise Felton. They also sold some of the source through arby's. I don't remember what wags it's not there anymore. I think it's a it's a strip mall now where it used to be. Sterling. Okay. The one here at six corners. I don't know what if it became. So I can't where I don't remember if it became something else. But now it's all down, and it's a it's a strip mall where that used to be. Yeah. I should think of another fast is. Sandy's Sandy's remind me. Logo. Like a girl and soon as and play out in it still they used to say how much you are hungry. And they all became hardy. And. The west coast. They don't call them Hardee's Carl's junior. Yeah. Carl's junior. Yeah. Those candies all over the place. You know, there is a really good. Yeah. Okay. Cool, john. Thanks, man. Seventy five okay. John. Thank you. Okay. I'll talk. Dan. When you were a kid you ever gonna wags? I did never been two ways. We used to go there all the time. Like, if you go to a movie at the Portage or something my buddies and me and oaken and new then, hey, listen. We'd always go to wags. We went there there all the time. And it was it had it had the Walgreens w and they call it wags. And and we all know how Walgreens got their name. As my uncle told me when I was a kid because all in the stores all the walls were painted green. I have such a moron. I still can't believe that. I I I thought that was true into my twenties. I was like twenty years old at a party. I've told this story many times now it's like, hey, I'm like twenty I'm at a party with room full of people. You know, why it's called Walgreens. Because when they first opened the stores all the walls were painted green. And seriously everybody looked at me like I had a screw loose. They were like what the hell is wrong with you. It's Walgreens because that's the name of the people bought the company bought it there Walgreen. That's why it's Walgreens. And I was like, and I believed my my lying uncle rows a little kid. He said that's why they were called Walgreens. I believe that until I was twenty that makes me that makes me sound really stupid to actually believe that they called it Walgreens because the walls were painted green. And not not only that there's only one L in Walgreens, not to and I still believe it because I'm an idiot. I am such a moron is to this day. One of the stupidest things that I've ever believed, and it's in a room full of people. I said that with all seriousness because the walls were painted green. And they looked at me like what what the hell is wrong with you. Like what my uncle uncle told me that your uncle lied to you. In an obvious way. But wags called wags because they had used to have dogs in there. And they would wag. I don't know what that means. Let's take a break, your, let's take a break here for for some weather. We'll come back. We've got a few more businesses and restaurants icon. Restaurants that had a different name some of 'em ridiculous. And let's hear your forecast..
