If you recall the previous administration has proposed cutting knows budget only to have it restored by congress. Now this is just a first step in the budget proposal. It has a long way to go to get congressional approval. But i think it's a very good first step now. Here's something that's really interesting. I read this in the cayman compass online. It's about a grand cayman. Northside family found a message in a bottle. Yeah on easter. i think it was. The family was out walking on a remote part of the island. A place called the parrot sanctuary. I think this is on the east end.

Two thousand and seventeen somewhere between the bahamas and florida. If you find this drop us a line and let us know where it ended up. Signed by darren and shannon from evansville illinois and it gave them their email address so patricia them with the news and now darrin shannon are planning to visit grand cayman at some point as for the bottle.

Cole and it is about the divers who worked on the edgewater disaster. It was one of the worst maritime disasters in us history. I'll leave it at that and you can do some of your own research but it was a really interesting article. There's also an interview in the edition. Done by michael newdow with dick rakowski and he's dubbed. The father of nighthawks again. Some really interesting stuff. I highly recommend that you take a look at the historical diving. Society's website if you become a member you'll get the journal mail to you every quarter a pleasant surprise in your mailbox. I received an email from a friend a few weeks ago with the subject line serenity so who can't use a little serenity how about serenity now well it turns out that my friend was asked by our son to watch him cameras for a school project. These live cams were from the monterey bay aquarium so i went to the link and it took me to their landing page for nine different cameras. I'm not going to list them all right now. But you can peek. In on their penguins. Sea otters were moon jellies. There's even a camera for monterey bay itself personally. I like to observe my sealife while diving but these live cams from monterey bay aquarium can fill in and provide that little bit of serenity. Now here's something interesting. That came in from shearwater. You know the makers of the dive computers. They have a contest. It's going to be starting up. In may called the spring shopping spree and the winner will get four thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars shopping spree at the dive shop of their choice. And here's how it works if you purchase the shearwater in april or if you buy one in may you can register for the contest with their online portal with a proof of purchase. But you don't have to buy a computer to participate. You also be able to register by completing a short fifty word essay on why you like shearwater computers. The lucky winner will be selected at the end of may. And it's another great way to support your local dive shot. Thanks your water for doing this.

There was some speculation out there that the maldivian government might be lifting the shark fishing ban in their countries waters. Well this can't be good over ten years ago.

Well here's some good news here at the meeting minister while he said that they were committed to sustainable and responsible management on april twentieth the ministry released a statement that said the maldives does not intend to permit a targeted shark.

Tourism season right and saint patrick's day right so which this is going to post just the day after saint patrick's day but it was a big deal so going into the red tier for that particular day. It was big deal. So i go to this really like super great little deli down in down by san diego state. Right and it's it's a real popular one. I don't know if you've ever been to it. it's It's it's like a little jewish deli called What is it called. I cannot remember the name right now. i can't believe. I'll have to look it up. I'll post at d. d. and it's awesome. It's like really authentic really great and it was packed. Last night. I went last night to pick up dinner and i do weight and extra forty five minutes to get my dinner and it was to go do irish jews in common like well. I think it's just because it's a deli. They just do super good corned. Beef was one of those things. So it's a really but it's a really popular. So i think that the delhi site that the jewish shelley more like east coast so they're really really good. It's just i mean. does that sound bad. I don't. I don't know i so. So it's a really like it's it's it's like an authentic east coast deli. That's yeah i don't know what's funny as delays even growing up with a jewish family. I don't go to delhi. So i really don't know like a bad east coast deli from sally so it's i think it's a lot different. It's a lot. There are a lot better and so they have much better light quality of meats. And everything like that. So it's just the one in del mar really popular same thing. East coast are west coast elliott. That's like an east coast one and that is also a very well known really good jewish delis so that the east coast jewish. He's known as being really good. Yeah and so so. That's why it's not like it's not like It's not like a religious thing or anything but it's it's always funny that i hear so milton's and are the two big ones here and i'm sure milton's was super pac too but So it's really good and and it was packed. It was packed packed. Like i've never seen it. That packed and crazy and spent there. Because i was there to get dinner together because i wanted corn beef. Because i'm an irish guy and it was the whole outside was completely packed and there was like a line like out the door around the building practically to get in and that was to order it and you had to wait an hour to order it. So it's so. I mean clearly like the red tier like people were getting out. Yeah i feel like people having getting out if you like. The more and more people are that are getting vaccinated especially has kind of elderly generation. It's getting vaccinated. You're gonna see a resurgence and that's a really good point. Because last night it was a lot of older people. Like a lot of people that you wouldn't think would be going out. We're definitely out who fully vaccinated talking to. They're like oh it feels so good to be vaccinated and you know. Yeah we're we're we're ready to get out again and people were talking like in line that this was the first time they've been out in a long time so i think it's good the combination of the vaccine's rolling out at the same time that obviously that's having an effect on the numbers here they're saying that our numbers are really good So the the numbers are. I think we've now gone to six cases per hundred thousand. I don't remember exactly what we're we're so it is saying in here and this by the way was out of the. Ut okay so union tribune and they are saying nine of the other county so it looks like nine. Other counties moved into red to in those were monterey riverside sacramento santa barbara center to hema to lori and ventura And then that just leaves eleven of the california's fifty eight counties in the most restrictive purple tier still the the cases. They're saying have gone to six point. Eight per one hundred thousand residence so they took last week's case rate which was eight point. Eight where at six point eight. And i think they took like a combined total and that got us just over the mark to go to read. So that's good so we keep having our case count drop to which is which is good and i think a lot of that has to do with vaccines right. We're just not spreading fast and it's starting to slow down so hopefully this'll be. The weird thing is in europe. They're kinda getting so talked to one of our clients say who lives in france and She was saying that you know like where she is. She's around knees and it's become more restrictive there so they become more lockdown.
How to Increase Sales 20% Using Predictive Analytics with John Wall
"Right. Everyone welcome to digital conversations. I'm your host billy bateman and today i am joined by podcasting legend john wall partner at trust insights and co host of marketing over copy. John thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me here billy. I appreciate it yeah. I'm really excited for this man so Before we get into it we're going to talk a lot about predictive analytics attribution the your data cleanliness within marketing. But before we get into that. Let's learn a little bit about you and what you do so tell us about yourself and a little bit about your journey. Yes sure so. I'm a partner at trust insights a marketing analytics firm. We we light up dark data which is our kind of data detectives. We help people figure out what's working in their marketing. What's not working where to go next. But my career path has been kind of crazy. I mean as far as marketing tech. i've been in the startup world since about ninety seven and have gone through. This is like my seventh startup. and we're actually three years in. I mean we're well beyond startup phase. But i've kind of cycled through a number of times and then before that. My background is actually economics. I graduated with a degree in econ. So i've always come at the marketing thing from the you know the quantitative analysis side and tried to automate as much as possible. So yeah it's been a long crazy path and a bunch of while pitstops along the way but everything with trust insights is going well and then the most of what we do at trust insights originally started when i was working with christopher penn. We started this podcast marketing over coffee about going on like fifteen years now. But we've you know every week talk about marketing and tech and that has just kind of finally gotten to a point where it's brings in clients for us for trust insights. We have a reputation as knowing about keeping an eye on what's going on in what's changing because the space is so crazy and dynamic and That has helped us build a community that were able to kind of trade ideas within could talk about. What's going on with martin and it's works. Well awesome awesome. Okay so you guys do a lot of work with predictive analytics and nice buzzword. I don't think a lot of people really know like what does that. What does that amount to in the real world. So i think what was just start there so when you guys were talking about predictive analytics what are you looking at. And what can you help. People forecast yeah. The most common thing that we did for. Predictive is topic analysis. You know we'll go take a look at grab a library of terms. Our chief data scientist christopher. Penn will run that against a number of models that he has and so the most common example that we use. We have a blog post. We update every year called the cheese report where we look at all the cheeses in the market and we come up with a calendar for the next twelve months. That says okay. These are when specific cheeses are going to be hot and moving and so if somebody who's creating content for website if you're in the cheese industry you know you know that come may and june. You'd better be teeing up all your content and videos about halloo me and i didn't even know who he was a thing until i read the cheese report and as we dug in. It's a grilled cheese so it always peaks in the summers when people are looking for louis. Recipes are wanna buy hulu me. It's because they're getting ready to throw it on the grill in july and so and then you know as you keep digging into the data you'll see mozzarella's on fire around christmas time Cheddar right around new year's as everybody's doing parties Monterey jack comes in around the super bowl when people making nachos and so the idea is that by looking at all this data and looking ahead you can't predict the future and say hey we want to drop our content on these weeks because we know there's going to be demand the week following that and you know we will have had content in place for a couple of weeks before the surge. It's you know these models can be applied to anything. I mean if you have enough sales data you can look and say you know get an idea for maybe what your seasonal sales cycle will be but we often find in. Beat a be that. There's just not enough data to really get effective models going But you know as far as applying that same model to other stuff. Women's shoes we have a client that uses the women's shoes fashion reports. So they know you know six to three months out from black friday. What's going to be hot and specific kinds of shoes and and where to go. It's and it's gotten a little bit rough You know it used to be rock-solid we kinda generate models and they would just always be you know ninety five percent greater confidence interval. You know we would just know that pretty much certain covert has kinda thrown a wrench in things. There's there's been a massive change in search behavior and so a lot of markets have been messed up so it's not as easy as it used to be. We used to kind of be able to say yeah. We can definitely do that for everything. And now a lot of projects. We'd say low will look will go in there and will run some models and we'll get back to if we think we can do some predictive because it's a lot more difficult than it used to be. Yes so with covid would what are you. Seeing is the changes and just consumer behavior since Yeah in one way. It's not radically different. Really what people have been saying. Some of the state we've seen is that it's it's as if we just jumped five years ahead you know we've kind of been on this ramp of ecommerce going in this direction and eating up one more brick and mortar and suddenly as if we just jumped ahead five years into the future because everybody now is forced to go online for purchases where there's this group of people who still like to go to you know the local big to buy stuff and now they have no choice because of the toilet paper gone or they don't want to go outside their risk or whatever so that's one thing

"In the monterrey peninsula area is your home base as we start to wrap this up. There's going to be long episode but to labor of love. You named a couple events. Your favorite i think is still the scottish festival. Yes okay all right. So the best day of the year for you would be the scottish festival. I would have to save. The monarch. butterfly parade is something that most visitors never see and is just adorable. So i would point that one out one thing that makes you laugh and say only in the monterey peninsula caramel for two reasons. They have no street addresses. They go by third house. South of twelve th avenue the building or whatever they are and here's the even the next good one when is illegal to wear high heels over two inches. I did not know that. You need a city permit. Or as i would call a release basically the even walking surfaces around the old town idea. Yeah lawsuits and stuff. So i read came back in the twenties but in sixty three they put it in a law has to get a city permit if you were high heels well skin known for a few loss like that in fact the story goes that. Clint eastwood ran for mayor because he was frustrated with some of the laws that he was facing as a restaurant owner but also because at one point there was a great ice cream parlor. No longer there right on main street and made it illegal to eat ice cream while you're walking down the street and i think that was one of the you know that's enough sort of things that may decide to be mayor. The no street lights in town. One of the reasons they can do addresses is that there's no mail delivery. Everybody picks up their mail from the post office carmel. So it's an interesting little quirky place in. It's not really a hip replacements. An artist's place people santa cruz but but it is beautiful.

"Is there as well right. I was actually going to mention beck in monterey the robert louis. Stevenson lived in monterey and his houses open for people to visit and there. They will tell you that point lobos was what he used as a map of trial. And of course. I've been at least two of the places in the world that say he patterns treasure island after you know where there were so. I don't know that there's any truth that story but that's the story they will tell you at the steinbeck house or at least. They told me that when i was a student going over there in elementary school. The other thing that's unusual. That has happened since i left. Is there is a wild animal safari park between salinas and monterey which i haven't made to yet this inquest safari bed and breakfast. Now you can actually stay there as well but that is out near speckles the sugar town. Yeah south monterey. And salinas cut across there when i go to monterey to the scottish festival have to look next time. Have you ever been to the california international airshow. Aaron salinas. 'cause i know it's about. I think this is supposed to have been the fortieth year. But obviously kobe did that. But first weekend in june that is correct well and we skipped one more event in monterey and that is the jazz festival. Okay jazz festival. That is the best known festival in monterey. So we're all learning something here to other things that i would do to. The east is to the south and that is the only national park. Well the only park in a national park system with the national park designation. I have to be very careful with jeff on the show. The is pinnacles national park. High cannock area fascinating place brings flashlight is a series of caves that you can walk through do some hikes very warm in the summertime bring water there are two different entrances to the west end to the east and they do not connect you cannot drive from one to the other on anything that is paved at least you have to drive quite a ways around the gallon range of mountains to get from one end to the other. We used to always go to the east side of the park. The west side of the park is interesting too. Don't expect cell phone connection beautiful park wonderful hikes and the caves are really just narrow ravines that with great big rocks f on into but you know. Great called zealous caves there. You go because. I know that because my first national park surrey. I want to mention that. And then you mentioned. We're gonna talk about some other missions. Yeah we'll before we get off of pericles just a couple of things folks california condors can be seen at the pinnacles and the other interesting thing is you're talking about the rooted volcanic peaks. Well they're right on the san. Andreas fault yes in the other. Half of those peaks is one hundred ninety five miles southeast. So i'm not sure which side's going north which side's going south but the west side is going north north right okay. Basically los angeles is moving toward san francisco. San francisco is on the north american plate. Angeles is on the pacific plate. So another great place..

"The landside as a great stopping points their animals more if you wanna see the go off to the beach and pfeiffer if you wanna go walk in there redwoods to waterfall for instance yeah. They got some great waterfalls there as a is one of the california state parks. So you're gonna see a lot of ccc architecture and stuff there too also good place. I've gone camping. They're both of those have camping in her good spots for camping. If you're into that the other thing we passed by here is one of the traditional old places to go. We passed by karma highlands just after we left point lobos and going out at sunset. This is the other great place for sunset in the bar. Karma highlands when you're looking down on the coast with a cocktail. Underhand is not a bad place to watch the sensitive excellent. We talked about willing when we were at point. Lobos though whaler's cove and that reminds me of a little piece of history that you will read about on the if you do that. Coastal walk over there by lovers. Point for instance and that is the nickname of the three cities. So it used to be that carmel was this retreat area will. Pacific grove was a retreat area for religious retreats. In fact if you look a lot of the old buildings in pacific grove you can see what date they were there and they were them our cabins in a religious retreat area. There still is one a cellamare which is a conference center now and does religious retreats as well state park it is now that is crap and monterey though had cannery row where there was a lot of fishing and so it was known as carmel by the sea pacific grove by god and monterey by the smell so it doesn't fell nearly as bad these days but that for many years was the smell of success and prosperity in monterey because it was a lot of wailing that happened from the coastline. That happened in monterey as well..

"So since we're still in carmel by the sea. Clint eastwood mayor. Everybody may know from it by that. He still owns part of one of the restaurants in town. I believe are one or two of them. He still owns part of the boards. Breath i believe him is the carmel mission now actually established by saint father. Unit perot sarah. But it wasn't started there actually. It was started in monterey in june of seventeen seventy. He moved it to carmel because he didn't he considered unsuitable word. Is that now that one in monterey is now called the royal presidio chapel saint carlos bormio so he took the mission even though that the chapel is still there in monterey and moved it down to karmiel in seventeen seventy one about a year or so later in. He's buried there. I had forgotten that okay. Yeah he's buried there. Beautiful mission still attracts. That is in use right off highway one so not in downtown carmel. Not off of ocean avenue. Which is the main dragon carmel. But off of highway one also close to the carmel river. State beach honestly. That's where i used to go to the beach as a kid. Well when i was old enough to drive we would go there because it has actually warm enough to swim in the river just before it hits the beach it hits an estuary beautiful beach there along the just south of carmel beach. You'll find in carmel. But pretty and yeah one of the many california missions we've talked about on the show before in fact we talked about them with jeff. Moody talked about state parks because some of them are state parks. Not all of them. This one is not this. One is still owned by the catholic church. And i think we're going to mention three others as we go along because now that we're kind of out of the monterey carmel central as you said we can go down coast to coast or inland. Let's go down a little bit to two different things that are just outside of town and one is. I know one of my favorite state parks in california. We've talked about it on the show that we did on state parks and i think it's a favorite of yours as well which is point lobos steps natural reserve. Get there early. It fills up and they closed the gates and make you walk in from highway one but very beautiful coastline in point lobos beautiful place for easy hike. It's not a very big park. It's one of the reasons why they do. Close the gates when it gets more crowded but beautiful section of california coastline one of the most beautiful sections of california's line. This is the contender for the other. Monterey cypress that. I think is photograph there at point. Lobos out in the point there off the trail. And if you're there they have a museum. It's called the whalers cabin. It was built by chinese fishermen and later used by the japanese portuguese fishermen. But it's now a museum and this is on whaler's cove as i recall and point. Lobos is actually the first marine protected area in the country. Nineteen sixty hollywood set. Aside most of the reserve actually is out in the water under the ocean. There in this long kind of talking about the coastline stuff. This is like you said. Pch one heading south all the way down. Hearst castle all the little rock islands that you see out there..

"That's beautiful if you're trying to run a business there and dealing with their arcane business rules and things like that and they don't believe in in street lights and things like that but it is a beautiful town it's a wooded town. I have enjoyed it more over the last couple of years when we actually stayed that night in carmel and could enjoy it walking around rather than trying to park a car. There was a it was an old movie with Chevy chase and goldie hawn and the naval which is escaping me for a while. But he gets kidnapped. Chevy chase does and is told rob a bank in carmel. I don't remember why he has to do it but he can't find a parking place and that is a little bit of the carmel experience it used to be. You would see all sorts of little shops for buying. There are fewer than there used to be in the post amazon days but now there are fourteen at least or more now. Different wine tasting rooms in the area because one of the things that has changed in the amount or a county. Since i grew up is there are many many wineries in the area. When i grew up in salinas when i left for college in seventy nine which puts a date on me there. I think there was one winery. I was aware of in the county. There are now three hundred last. I heard a number between monterey and salinas in quite a few down in the central highlands which are south of salinas in salinas valley on the western slope of the valley. Some very good wines made there is your further up the valley you get more pino ours and then you head. Further south in monterey county and start head towards pasa robles and some of the warmer weather. You'll get more darker reds. And things like that as well but wonderful wineries and fourteen of them now at least are available with the wine pass in carmel that got discontinued thousand nineteen. Well there. Sorry injuries and they still worth going. My favorite is the one that we're actually members of. Which is the winery in downtown carmel. Little off the beaten path. And it's not one of those places where you have to stand up at the bar and drink. Your wine have comfortable seats. You can sit in the couple who owns. That are lovely. Their wine is good. So that's one that i would recommend there and of course. The first weekend in june is to monterey wine festival. keep that on. If you're going to be there. That might be kind to the monterey wine festival. I didn't know the ad one campus on here. Also i've never met this either. But i'll get you that one before it gets okay. Okay this episode of amateur traveler is sponsored by skylight frame. I'm pleased to have skylight frame back as a sponsor you may remember. They've sponsored the show before and when they did chris who's one of the patrons of the show a bought one any bought one four his mom. Can you tell the.

"I'm going to go up the coast or down the coast and as you go up the coast from monterey you get some long long miles long beaches and san city and now in the what is now in fort ord dunes state park but the water is always cold in monterey bay and one of the reasons it's always cold is monterey bay is deeper than the grand canyon so it's a popular place for great white sharks to hang out. It's a popular place for wales as they're passing by. It has quite a lot of biodiversity. And that's one of the reasons that it makes sense to have both the sanctuary as you were talking about as well as the aquarium. Yeah and that's kind of that central core. I don call tourist area but the visitor attractions down there. I'm going to keep going just a little further. Because i'll tell you. My favorite part of the coastline is freaking out. I mean i say. I'm not gonna do north. I wanna say north west but it's further along. The coast from the aquarium is a path that goes basically from well past lovers point to well past marina and you can either get a bike or a or you can walk it and my favorite part to walk is at park between lovers point in pacific grove and old. Fisherman's wharf in monterey and it's just a very beautiful picturesque portion of the bay rocks and crags right past the aquarium if you peek in. There is the hobson's marine station and you can almost always see. Seals harbor seals right there past the fence in a little cove. There in hobson's marine station. Again you're just like two blocks away from the aquarium at that point. Further down the coast of if you'll give me down being the direction that place. Yeah it's the monterey bay coastal recreation trail actually goes eighteen miles. Chris all the way out the castroville when all the way to go along the southern pacific railroad the old southern pacific exactly trails and. They say they're at that point. That's one of the great spots to watch. Sunset is a pre spot. But it's actually not the best buttocks sense it because it faces east. I'll would go. If you're gonna watch the sense that i would go around the corner over by point. Pinos lighthouse to What is it a sill. Mar beach area is going to be a better place for watching lighthouse for one thing. You're facing west so but lovers point is the pupil area..

"It's the old defunct sardine factories shops and restaurants there. Also but i think the biggest attraction there is going to be what chris so the most popular attraction in holy cow monterey bay aquarium twenty twenty. It's closed it will reopen again. He is one of the best aquariums. You will see everything you will see in. The monterey bay aquarium is from the monterey bay which makes it a little different including kelp forests and cr's and my favorite is the jellyfish exhibit sitting there and watching the jellyfish in the mostly in the dark with this one lit up in there. I want to say bioluminescence. Even it's just fascinating. But yet when i grew up you could actually tell that some of those were more Canneries so there's been a lot of developed over the last fifty years and so these days it's a lot of high end hotels some really lovely hotels in that area shops. You know bubba gump slot of touristy things there but by far the most popular attraction there being graham and it's probably the most not miss feature in the monterey agree. Yeah and. I have to handed out. It's the hewlett packard. Family that started. Put the money into it. And it is such a well known also for the conservation. Work that they do. The wildlife marine wildlife care and research that they continue to support marine. And my one really fantastic experience. Was i there for a conference of park rangers and we actually had our banquet dinner inside the aquarium at the kelp forest exhibit. So or eating there. And there's all the fish swollen by the kelp forest. It was fantastic will end you say. hewlett packard family. If i want to say it was the packer family packard and the first director of the aquarium was the daughter of david packard. The joke goes that she said daddy. Buy me a fish tank. But that's really true. But he actually one of the last things he designed invent it. And i used to work for hewlett packard back in the day but one of the last things was the wave machine that keeps the kelp alive because kelp has to have waves to not die off and that was really one of the first times that they were able to put a kelp forest in an aquarium. And not just go away and connected with the aquarium is now. An area called the monterey bay national marine sanctuary it was established and ninety two. It's called the seren getty at the c. It stretches along central coast of san francisco all the way down to Hearst castle lot beaches tide pools kelp forest but the sanctuary were set aside because of these kelp force in the whale watching. You talked about deep sea fishing so it is a protected area which is good. Because that's why we got a lot of stuff there to see well and there is a lot of the one of the reasons they can do. Everything you see is going to be from the aquarium. Is that one of the things you should know about monterey bay first of all if you're planning on going on a beach vacation monterey bay natural replace because some lovely beaches actually in the area especially as you go up the coast and i'm not gonna use north and south very often in this episode because if you look at a map. It's all confusing because monterey actually faces east so that's gonna confuse things..

Are Beans a Protein or Carbohydrate?
"Hello and welcome to the nutrition. Diva podcast. i'm your host monterey nagel and in this episode. i'm going to answer. The eternal question are being of protein or carbohydrate food. Vegetarians and vegans lean pretty hard on beans as a source of protein. And even those of us who sometimes eat meat but also enjoy plant based meals will often build our meat free meals around some sort of legume and that's because they contain more protein per serving than most other plant foods but the nutritional profile of legumes is very different from animal protein sources eggs meat fish and chicken get anywhere from fifty to ninety five percent of their calories from protein with the rest usually coming from fat leg. Hume's on the other hand only get about a quarter of their calories from protein and the rest is mostly carbohydrate. Soybeans are a bit of an exception being higher in both protein and fat and lowering carbohydrate than other legumes. Peanuts which are technically legumes are another exception. They're even higher in fat than soybeans and lower in protein than most beans. Perhaps because of this peanuts are generally categorized as nuts for the purposes of dietary guidelines despite their botanical classification. So can you get enough protein from beans well. Although we think of beans as being a protein food the truth is that they provide a lot less protein per serving and per calorie than animal proteins. A three ounce serving of cooked chicken breast for example provides about twenty six grams of protein and about one hundred and sixty calories. The standard serving size for beans is a half of cup of cooked beans and that provides just eight grams of protein for around one hundred twenty calories so we would need to eat a lot more beans to get the same amount of protein as we get from meet. It would take two cups of black beans. That's about four hundred and eighty calories to get the same amount of protein as you'd get from three quarters of a cup of chicken breast for example so for every gram of protein and beans. You're also taking in about three grams of carbohydrate and a lot more calories now although beans are relatively high in carbs these are some of the healthiest types of carbs. The carbohydrate portion of beans is a combination of fiber and starch but about half of the starch in beans is actually what we refer to as resistant starch that means it resists digestion and absorption in the small intestine and goes on to function much like fiber in the gut the fiber and the resistant starch in beans feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut. They promote regularity they helped to modulate our blood sugar response to food. They also increase our satiafaction and society after meals helping us feel full with fewer calories. Perhaps that's why people who eat. More beans generally have healthier body weights and lower waist. Circumference beans also contain fido sterols. These are plant compounds that are shaped so similarly to cholesterol that they can occupy the cholesterol receptors in ourselves and regular being consumption is linked with better cholesterol profiles. So beans have a lot going for them. But let's talk about how they fit into your diet because when we build a meal around beans instead of meat which is a great idea. We may need to make some other adjustments to our plates because beans contain both protein and starch. It might make sense to reduce other sources of starch to compensate for that. So if you're having black-eyed peas instead of blackened catfish for dinner. Perhaps you skip the bread or the potatoes. Beans and rice of course are a classic combination in part because of the complementary amino acid profile. But you could have a smaller portion of rice with your beans instead of half a cup of beans and a cup of rice. For example you could switch the proportions on that double up on the beans ordered to bump up the protein and reduce the rice to half a cup and keep in. Mind that if you're trying to match the protein content that you'd get from meet. You may not have as many calories to spend on other foods due to the extra calories that are riding along with that plant to protein.

Interview With Robin McBride and Andra McBride John
"Okay so I warned you last time this story is epic right and I am assuming you're here because you've already heard part one of this two part story how two half sisters who didn't know the other existed until both were grown up went onto launch one of the biggest black owned wine companies in the world. But if you haven't heard part one, please stop listening right now and go back one episode and your podcast queue to hear it. As for the rest of you, you've now had a few days to dry your eyes and recover from the first half of the story. Which means we are at the business building part of what would eventually become the McBride Sisters Collection. Now, the thing about Andrea and Robin mcbryde is that despite both growing up in winemaking regions Robin in Monterey California, Andrea in new. Zealand neither sister had any real connection to the industry and neither had any real money to put towards a business. They were also young women of color trying to break into an industry that's often been dominated by older mainly white men. But now this matter they didn't care. They knew that they both shared a love of wine and that they both had a deep and powerful desire to work together. and. There was one other thing. They were motivated by mission they wanted to build a company that would make wine more accessible to disrupt and demystify the sometimes intimidating parts of wine culture. Grape varietals had a tasted regional nuances. Ratings even had a read labels. And when they I dreamed up the idea of starting wine company Robin, the older sister had been working at a corporate job and was married with three children and Andrea, was a college student at USC. I mean. Neither of you had a whole lot of start up cash if any did you Robyn did you I mean you had been working but you also family did you have any savings I mean not match you know it was kind of a nearly paycheck to paycheck. Already got married. We had recently purchased a home, but you know we have brand new twin babies and an older girl. So there wasn't a whole lot of cash available and under assuming given that you're on scholarship at USC in a college student, you probably were broke right I. Mean I got my scholarship checks in on. Where you could get a job and make money you know that was that was what I did. So the the the original idea was it sounds like what you guys settled on was let's just import wine and and Kinda put a label on it was that the initial idea. So we had this grand vision we felt like what was really critically important was that. Incredibly passionate about wine yes. Students of wine but we need to learn the business of wine and you know we could get this license in California, a federal import license that was like fifteen hundred dollars. It was like our total life savings and we could import other people's winds and we started by reaching out to two families in New Zealand, and then we could we could learn the business and we went to them and basically said, you know don't put all your eggs and basket. We think California could be a great market to grow your brands and your winds and we negotiated really long payment term so he could bring in the wine. Sell it. Click the cash, pay the light bill and then pay them back and then. As a part of the process was every harvest. We come back and you guys teach us how to make wine. And you Andrea ahead of some connections in new. Zealand 'cause you're from there and your family, your family farmers. Yeah. So when you first approach these wineries in New Zealand and they agreed to send you wine. How did that work like how many? How many bottles of wine did you initially by and then where did you go to sell them? So yeah so it was crazy. It was at the time at felt like it was an insanely huge amount of wine. In it was a palette which is. Fifty Four I. Like the the minimum of what you can put on a boat. But for us, that was just an insane an internet case of wine. There's twelve bottles. So right it just felt like a huge defeat to be able to get these licenses because you know the the sale of alcohol states is highly regulated. And it's very strict and so just the process of obtaining a license to import seemed and felt like such a huge rigorous process and then and then to convince people. You know to entrust in US and give US product and then to get on a boat and then and then bring it into the port of Long Beach at the time, and then put it into a federally bonded warehouse because you can't just like bring that to your house has to go into
Interview with Robin McBride and Andra McBride John
"It's possible. You've never heard of mcbride sisters wine and that you've never had one of their chardonnays or brute rose as or one of their blended reds and it's even possible. You don't drink wine at all. But I'm here to tell you none of this matters for the purposes of today's episode because even if all of the above applies to you, this story will change some of the things you might think about business about fate and destiny about overcoming incredible obstacles and mostly. About. Love. This story is so epic that we decided it needed to episodes. So this week you'll hear part one of how Sisters Andrea and Robin mcbryde built the McBride Sisters Wind Company, and next week you'll hear part to. I'll start with the basics. McBride sisters. Wine is now one of the largest black owned wind businesses in the world. There are roughly. Thousand winemakers in the US and McBride sisters wine is among the top two percent in terms of how much wine they produce per year you can find their wines at most major stores like target and Walmart. And they're also higher end. So about twenty bucks a bottle but still designed to be accessible especially, the people who might be intimidated by wine culture and this is the precise problem. Andrea and Robin said out to solve how to open up the sometimes intimidating world of wine appreciation to people normally shut out young people, people of Color women but also make the wine good enough to attract wine. Snobs. Robin Andrea actually founded their business in two thousand five. And they faced just about every barrier imaginable. They were young women of color with no immediate access to a winery no money no connections. But what they shared was a passion, a deep abiding passion for wine. Something else they shared. A bond that was forged in a unification. The two sisters were born nine years apart both have different mothers but share the same father and for most of their early lives neither sister new, the other even existed. But remarkably both women grew up in wine producing regions Andrea the younger sister grew up near Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in New Zealand well, almost seven thousand miles away for older sister robin was living in. Monterey California with her mom. My mom and our shared father a divorce when I was a baby and so it was only she is. So she never remarried. She didn't have any more children She really honestly didn't even very much. I was aware of anyway she hid it from me. I'm not sure and she didn't have a large family at all. She was an only child also so it was really just her and I together in the world you know we were really. Had a really strong bond and really quite dependent on each other and when you were growing up, you didn't have much contact with your dad right none at all. You know a little context. My mom wasn't thrilled with our father when they divorced and you know it was no accidents that they weren't in communication. It was something that she wasn't interested. In doing so for me from a really young age I was just always you know as a child who has a missing parents I was just always like you know where is he? What's going on? Why is it my dad or my life? You know I had a lot of questions from my mom And she was like, well, you know she always told me like you know he's probably noaa somewhere and she's like I don't want to have any communication with him. She's like. Grow Up and do your thing. Right. When you're eighteen, you know if you feel like you want to start a search to find him go ahead and do that, and so I'd always planned. It was always something that I wanted to do because I did want to figure out who this mysterious person was and hopefully have a chance to meet him. What kind of things were you interested in as a little girl? I was a really weird sort of child and I think part of that has to do with the fact that you know I didn't have like cousins around and we didn't have a larger family dynamics that was really kind of you know alone are little bit. But that had me outs exploring the world's a lot kind of on my own. So you know just really curious about nature and the environment and kind of more of that than people in socializing.

Could you handle a surprise $250 expense right now?
"Everybody a lot of big numbers with which to begin the program today, and then a much much smaller number, and arguably it's the smaller one that is more of a problem. One is definitive about the political machinations surrounding the American economy right now, those negotiations over a relief bill one is definitive at one's peril but we seem to have arrived today at the proverbial line in the sand by way of Refresher Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats want to spend two point two, trillion dollars on relief bill the White House, the president of the United States Treasury Secretary Steven. MNUCHIN. They say they are good with one point eight trillion dollars. Senate Republican, Leader Mitch McConnell Today in Kentucky Though said this you're correct were discussions going on between the Speaker about an hour now. That's not what I'm. GonNa put on. McConnell. Is going to put on the floor. He said a five hundred billion dollar package that'll be next week sometime. So those are the big numbers. The smaller number is two, hundred, fifty dollars just to fifty no extra zeros and it's one of the key data points from the latest addition of the marketplace. At research poll, we're going to be digging into it for the next couple of days and today as well. But the upshot is that all is not well once you get past the economic headlines One of the questions we asked people was if you had an unexpected expense of two hundred and fifty dollars, two, hundred, fifty bucks, would you be able to pay it forty seven percent of people almost half of Americans said it would be somewhat or very difficult to come up with cash. Since. The pandemic it's Ben We haven't really had much expendable income. That's Ashley. Since she's twenty seven, she's a first grade teacher in Monterey California at the beginning of the pandemic my boyfriend was laid off from his cooking job and so now it's kind of just. My salary and then the little bit of benefits that he gets, which covers blake rent food. But only barely like there's there's not much else one reason why there's not much else those expanded unemployment benefits the extra six, hundred dollars a week we told you so much about they ran out almost three months ago. See also negotiations over those big numbers that we started with. When he had the federal benefits at least we had like a little bit of wiggle room where it was like okay. If something happened wouldn't be like the end of the world right then. But now that that's gone, that's also kind of not there. Anymore Ashley's ends one of the respondents to the tenth addition of the marketplace. Edison Research poll out as I think I've said, today we through some new questions in the bowl this time cuz pandemic and some of those questions were about kids and parents and working and schooling from home. Those are among the biggest challenges millions of people in this economy you're facing and as marketplace's Megan McCarthy Carino reports it is mostly women who are facing it. Normally Emily Smith supplements her job as an heirloom vegetable farmer in Ohio with a part time winter job. But this year she's got a lot going on at home her nine year old son is doing on again off again, remote school. It changes week by week according to infection rates in our county I have to be here. He's not really old enough for me to. Go anywhere one time while he was in class, she left to run a quick errand down the street I come Rahm, and it's like he's sitting in front of the TV with his computer Smith's husband works fulltime outside the home. So she's in charge of schooltime our marketplace. Edison. Research poll found a stark gender disparity in WHO's primarily responsible for supervising remote learning sixty three percent of mothers said they were compared with just twenty eight percent of fathers. These disparities have kind of already been there but they're really getting exaggerated by how the pandemic has kind of taken away a lot of the scaffolding that makes working families tick. Darby Saxby directs the Center for the changing family USC. She says before the pandemic women in heterosexual dual income households were already doing more household labor despite the fact that dads have tripled the amount of time. They. Spend taking care of kids over the last fifty years. Now with childcare hard to find an extracurriculars canceled its mothers who are mostly picking up the slack. You know women are generally socialized to kind of be more the managers of of their kids, development and education in our poll. Roughly equal shares of men and women did say they had made career sacrifices to care for family during the pandemic or had cut hours at work to deal with remote school like Fain Young in Philadelphia who's juggling his it job with studying his BA and helping his five kids at home to definitely taken away from anything else that I would have otherwise done. And that time otherwise would be consumed either with my career or my own education. Dan. Carlson at the University of Utah has found well, moms are more likely to be in charge of remote schooling. DADS have stepped up to take more equal share of routine housework and childcare during the pandemic Manhattan stepped up the way they did it would have been even worse so it was not enough to stem the tide. You know as like a finger in the dam, the latest jobs report from the federal government found more than eight hundred thousand women had dropped out of the labor force four times more than men.

Blue Whale Song Timing Reveals Time to Go
"During the summer wheels in the northeastern Pacific spend their days feeding on massive amounts of tiny plankton called Krill. In fact, Krill is all they eat. It really is remarkable that such a small animal is able to sustain the largest life-form that's ever existed on this planet. Stanford. University marine ecologist will a strike and to maintain themselves at that body size. They have pretty extreme feeding habits. A blue whale consumes many tons of Krill. Every day eating keeps the ocean giants occupied during daylight hours when they dive hundreds of feet below the surface where krill congregate in dense swarms. But at night when their prey disperse the whales start to sing. You. Say for ten twelve hours straight. The song you just heard was sped up ten times which brings the sound up more into human hearing range speeding up the song enables researchers to more easily study whales deep and resonant songs which can be heard by other whales across vast distances in the ocean. It's very likely that song influenzas related to some sort of reproductive function whether that's attracting a mate or warding off other males since two thousand, fifteen, the Monterey Bay Aquarium? Research Institute. Has Been Recording. The songs of Blue Whales with an underwater microphone attached to the sea floor twenty, four, seven, three, hundred, sixty, five days a year giving an audio feed of all of the sounds being produced in around Monterey. Bay when a strike and his team analyze the blue whales singing behavior across seasons. They noticed an unusual pattern as summer gave way to fall and winter. The whales changed when they sang the song during the daytime than during the nighttime to learn more. The scientists tagged individual whales to keep tabs on both their feeding and singing behavior as summer krill concentrations wayne the whales begin a long southward by gration to their breeding grounds off the coast of Mexico in Central America once they start migrating feeding at death isn't really a part of the equation anymore. So they switch their primary time song production to the daytime knowing when to leave is crucial. It's really critical that the timing of this transition from feeding to migration e sinked. With other things happening in their habitats, the researchers think the seasonal change in singing patterns signals the start of migration, which means we're now able to determine when the population has switched from viewing migration. The study is in the journal current biology. The Blue L. Song Recording is courtesy of John Ryan and the Monterey. Bay. Aquarium Research Institute. Blue Whales are endangered but being able to monitor what they're up to in real time could be boon to conservation efforts if we're willing to listen.

Giga Texas Timeline Update, and the TSLA stock rebound
"Everybody. Robin our here, and today is kind of a Giga Day. We have news from gigafactory Shanghai Gigafactory, Texas gigafactory New York, and then we'll talk a little bit more about lucid ahead of their livestream unveil of the lucid air tonight, and of course, the stock which we can start out with dessel stock on the day to day finishing up eleven percent to three hundred, sixty, six dollars twenty eight cents on the back of a rising macaroni Environment Nasdaq for the day up two point seven percent. So as I said, yesterday, I, hate, stop-loss orders. This is exhibit a for why that is as Tesla today without much news swung back significantly in the. Other. Direction. That's really my only thought on the stock today. So let's move into the news. There was an interesting post this morning on Tesla Motors Clubs Forum by Ridge. Twenty twenty about a possible time line for Tesla's gigafactory in Texas. This user writes quote have some information on the tear factory build schedule. Tesla is sourcing how vendors slash contractors to bid on work at the site and quote this user then shares some screen shots presumably of some documents involved in that bidding, the most interesting of which lays out a project schedule in that project schedule not a first substantial completion date of May I twenty twenty one according to the American Institute of Architects. Substantial completion is quote the stage in the progress of the work when the work or designated portion thereof is sufficiently complete in accordance with the contract documents so that the owner can occupy or utilize the work for its intended use and quote the schedule also notes that the first dry in what happened on December thirtieth twenty twenty I xdrive just means that everything is sort of sealed up with the building shell so that interior work can commence without having to be exposed to the elements, and then in a separate page here that has also included. There's a more detailed schedule noting that in September they'll be doing things like underground electrical, mechanical plumbing, etc.. October would be fencing porta-pottys waste removal metals, recycling recycling removal, and then November would be architectural interiors which based on the dry and date assume would be non weather sensitive into your stuff. So obviously take this for what it's worth. It has just forum posts, but the documents to me look like they would be pretty legitimate I. Don't think there's a ton of reason to doubt it. I. Think for those of us that follow closely this would be pretty much in line with our expectations. This will be going from breaking ground to possibly production ready in under a year which we know Tesla is targeting based on their work active factory Shanghai originally and now With gigafactory Berlin as well. Speaking of Shanghai Tesla continues to make rapid progress at the gigafactory. They're the global times earlier. This Week reported that Tesla has completed the main section of phase two, which is for the Mata why and they write quote at present interior decoration and electromechanical testing being carried out and are expected to be completed on schedule in October and November and quote not exactly sure what interior decoration needs to be carried out and completed. I'm guessing that's probably something that's lost in translation probably more equivalent you interior design meaning, functional interior design. But regardless, we continue to see these reports about phase two in Shanghai though the Global Times appears. To also expect production to begin for the Monterey in one though they do cite other media reports on that which we have talked about. Personally, I'm still expecting some motto is to come out of gigafactory Shanghai. This you're probably not enough to be immaterial to quarterly results or the financials but more. So again, sign heading into twenty twenty one which cannot believe were that close to you already shifting back to the US and over to the energy side of the business with Peissel's gigafactory. In New, York a different type of gigafactory Tesla. Roddy today posted an article with the headline of quote vessel energy ramps hiring AC in New York for accelerated solar production and. Quote you on did actually re tweet this article in which Tesla Roddy writes quote a source familiar with the matter who spoke to Tessa. Roddy talk to employees at the plant who indicated the facility is currently operating on a twenty four hour schedule six days a week to keep up with demand. Altogether, this move seems to confirm the eighty eight acre location is accelerating solar production and installation insignificant way which coincides with the company's growth and the energy sector and quote while energy storage has definitely grown historically solar has actually been quite slow Tusla recently, which I think was correctly pointed out by Gordon Johnson in our bowl baird debate. So if we go. Back to two, thousand, seventeen, for example, cutie, Tesla deployed one, hundred, seventy, six megawatts of solar energy versus this most recent you only twenty seven megawatts of solar. There are a lot of reasons for that. The business model has shifted significantly but right now it's not at the point that at once what's Tesla's hope? Of course is that the solar roof changes that about which started in their cute you letter that quote solar roof installations roughly tripled in Q. to compare to key one, we continue to expand our installation team to increase the deployment rate and quote of course, this is a new product so to starting from a very low base for Tesla from. But hopefully, that growth rate continues we've also recently seen tesla cut their prices significantly for rooftop solar. Now, offering the lowest price systems in the United States at least at a dollar forty, nine per watt after incentives under cutting other systems and the US by about thirty percent on average. So plenty of reasons to be hopeful that Tesla is on the precipice returning to growth for the solar business and are on their way to finding a business model that works for them consistently for solar going forward. Next today on into provide an update to yesterday's discussion on delivery wait times. I've seen a few comments noting that those have changed for people today they have actually changed for me as well. So the model y currently sets for the all wheel drive version at seven to eleven weeks for me here in the Midwest two to four weeks for the performance for the Model S. and the Model X. Both of those currently sit at eight to twelve weeks versus yesterday's ten to fourteen. Weeks and the model three has held steady for all trims at two to four weeks.
"monterey" Discussed on The Knife Junkie Podcast
"So Bay. Knives You copped onto my screen about two years ago I think that's about as long as you've been around. Is that right? Yeah. Ed's physically. Yes. So the idea has been around since two thousand seventeen and we started prototyping about them but these didn't come into fruition by two years. Yeah. You're you're on it. Okay. So Monterey Bay knives, you know them for these beautiful sleek mostly up until now ray laconic designed titanium frame lock. Ud's and a lot of the ADC numbers. And then a couple recently that have gone larger, and now you are also doing collaborations a little bit further afield in Ray Tell me how how you partnered up with laconic. Oh, in how Monterey Bay Knives got started ray and I have been, we've been tight for long time. You know I met him became came into my my actual store front. You know we just we just kind of hit it off his buddies and we have a lot of mutual friends in in the industry and. You know we go to trade shows together and oftentimes, we traveled together. You know kind of started off a while back I I did a a an exclusive with Kaiser. The URSA minor in that was. Just a kaiser knife in it was is raised design and and I had approach race at a You know I think I think this would be fine. You know I think it'd be fun to an exclusive for my shop because yet you'd go for it you know rock and roll it. And and I did and it was it was good and. Eventually let the design because it was bigger than I was really it's a really handsome design and I didn't WanNa stump that for ray but it was it was funny it was a good learning experience so. Couple years later were were doing a couple projects and and all saw a lot of race customs through my shop and. Just kept having this this feeling like I want to do something more and big and and and a little different. So I was talking about it. And said, well, why don't we? Why don't we do this ourselves like why y? Accompany. You put their name on it. You know sloppy billboard and everything like that. With you know when we had the option to do it ourselves and and so we tried that we we had a good relationship with Kaiser and we went back to Kaiser and we say this is a new model and but we we just want it for us. We don't want control of everything you know every aspect of this. And they granted that to us. Which is really nice of them and During that we we had already started a second project did start working on a third project just kind of spiraled out of control. You know it just kept going and going. So let's back up You said your knife shop now where I'm from, there's no such thing anymore as a knife shop. So it's It just sounds great to hear but you're I know you're in Carmel California a beautiful place and you have a knife shop that's like a a double win tell me about Carmel. Cutlery, tell me what it's like running a knife shop and and then the Moxie you developed to start your own actual knife company right so. That that still stands true there, there's still aren't shops They're they're they're long gone and and there's. Four or five that I can think of. So the shop this shop was existed prior to me it was it was a it was an existing businesses had been around for twenty years in the prior owners where you know well into their seventies and And to two thousand, eight with a bad economy and they were gonNA close the doors you know that that came through and and. I was able to procure the. Money to pretty much by the inventory and turn Keel things. So you know I floated through that and? And and it's good. Let's did the time. So were you the guy hanging out at the knife shop all the time and they're like? I, Dunno. Sanford. We're going to have to close shop you're. Going to have to buy this place yeah. It was basically that you know I had I had to places the hard I had the I had the knife shop and I had the the army surplus store. The opposite end. Right right. You have to have your your backup guy, right? Yeah for sure. Exactly. So taking Carmel Cutlery, was it what you expected? What's it like running retail for knives? When when you know there's so many online resources That's where you be different and provide a service in the are my on surprised that. It's like buying shoes. I'm really amazed at people by certain items without holding in your hand. You know. So that's that's tough. I think that's tough for a lot of evil. But as for as for running I shop I think it's like any kind of. Specialty or or hobby shop I mean it's just it's a place to hang out. You know I've got the same three or four people that shop to shop every single day of their life, and I have really loyal customers in great people and and good. So with Monterey Bay knives you have a partnership now with Ray Laconic. Oh and you got you got the company going what? What is the What's the presiding philosophy through your knives, what you want these things to be For. The firm vk yeah. For the for the knives that you make under that that shingle well. I like having control the products, rain I do we like being able to do small batches and change them as needed or you'll make a bigger or smaller change the handle material or anything like and. And I really like the I really like that I can have an attention to detail and listen to my customer base and and. Change things accordingly because that's you know it feels like you know that's that's where a semi expertise where so am I my knowledge for some of this has come around was the knife shop in and handling every single knife on the market and I got to experience that and list of my customers and and really trying to tune in what people want and. Of course, that will be lifetime goal that he fine tuning that. But. That's really the goal. So the goal is to stay nimble, but also to infuse. I would imagine what you find ideal in in these knives into the Monterey Bay knives or. Crystallized all those best qualities what what are those qualities to you finishes, important materials value. You know. It's important. They'll all these all these little small nuances and details are important for knives. It's just like. Any other big hobby like Panzer watches or cars, you know every thing. and. That's important. and if I could focus on those details, it's I. think it could really carrying me and the company and taking tickets that levels a Yo attention to details that levels of Gordon I think as long as I could era as long as they can possibly do it. You know when I get a batch of two or three hundred pieces, I do my absolute auto control every single piece, every single piece customer has had I've touched I've seen it. I've flipped it open at least five or seven times and..

I think it's it's something all car companies struggle with Adam and It's so easy to tick that box because it feels good. 'cause there's a lot of people in the company who were saying. Oh that feels great right. You know you're not moving the company forward while it's also kind of interesting that you know old and nostalgia and all that stuff. It's all good. New Nostalgia is weird like when I see you ever see. I don't know why but from the eighties or nineties. Remember they started re popping. Those old fifties. Juke boxes had me on and the plastic and they played Cd's instead of and it was always bumped me. I'd like I'd rather either have the vintage old one or a new modern one. This old new is weird.

What was that two convertible pickup truck? You couldn't put anything in. I just throw. I can't talk about the competition. I just removed the front bumper from my prowler cleaner. Look and I got the trailer for me when me and my honey bunny go camping and prowler all right. All right let's talk. Let's I'm picturing all and I'm like Oh boys. History is not going to be kind to a lot of those cars Let's talk about the Bronco because the Bronco is interesting and that I saw the the first Jan I guess I Jan Body style. Broncos are getting a fortune on bringing earn auctions and everything else I mean. I don't know they seem like they're routinely fifty or sixty seventy grand right now and also the Bronco did stop which sort of like the Camaro you luxury revolving it all the way through like the Mustang. So what do you do with the Bronco out too good question? Arang where such a great product you know. It's it's in many ways you know minds me of those iconic products like Mustang in our industry. Thank goodness I think for us. We really learned something with raptor. Raptor was a big lesson for the company we did. We did the raptor in. Oh Eight. Oh nine the most difficult at times. Who took a couple of engineers down to Baja and we produced a prototype. Very low cost prototype version F. One fifty get a trophy truck kind of a affordable drope you trump and we were surprised that people love the compliance suspension the release off a suspension but also look and that started to get us thinking you know boy if we could do credible off road like a raptor could we go even deeper and it led us ultimately to the decision of redoing. Bronco and really the big facilitator was to bring back the range or we had this global ranger. It was very successful in Thailand and Europe. We make it in South Africa Thailand and we had the old ranger in the US. But we'd never bought this bigger ranger to us when we decided to do that about ten years ago it really opened the door for having a platform for ranger so the idea from raptor that there is a place where four could compete in the off road market. Not like a wrangler something. Different and then. We had the platform on the industrial side. That we can a great bronco then we decide to do it to get the design right so but our idea with Bronco is really more kind of sand. A higher speed More Kat casual. It's not a rubicon type of off road a product. It's more like Glamis or a few guys on the West Coast store something more like raptor and getting the design. Right was very difficult. We went back and forth. I'm very for jumping in. But you just reminded me like. Do you guys consult with guys like Jonathan Ward or look at their product and kind of go. Let's see sure got a key made a couple of nips and talks on the old one that came out pretty good. Maybe we should see about incorporating some of that stuff. Yeah well I mean you know early on when we are considering the Bronco looking at the icon products at Jonathan Don. I knew him from Toyota because You know it was responsible product planning when we brought that Jay back in. That was a you know a lesson. Ah Let's put it that way. And he was he was doing those authentic cheese to before before. Bronco run you know and and I think Bill Ford started noticing on to personally that this whole super but very kind almost naked approach a like a Kati. Very basic approach offroad Bronco and then the Bolinger came out which was this electric version of very basic off-road Harry Square and Very Utilitarian. Kinda exactly exactly so that. Got Us all really excited to say. Look but let's make sure that we're not holding people back so when it comes to like all the reuss gotta be catchable. You know you have to have all the accessories We WanNa make the Bronco Light. Pretty much easy to customize for every customer I was responsible for signing on a Toyota. The head of the company when we launched it and the Bronco Approach is very much the same like we want to give everyone ability ability to make their bronco what they want it to be. The base design is very functional.

And it's the William Right Monterey County Chardonnay Twenty eight eighteen and I've been doing a lot of Monterey County Wines lately and it seems that almost all of them are actually from The same producer. This is Chad family vineyards. I'm they've been around Monterey since the early seventies and the they made a bunch of wines for both all and trader. Joe's and what you're getting when you get those winds are an estate wine because they have about twelve Vineyards in Monterey what. They're one of the. They're one of the pioneers of Monterey Really getting into winds and they have winds all over. Monterey has all sorts of different climates. There's coastal mountains. There's there's Valley's there's bench land so they have cool places have places that are The Cold Ocean air is blocked by mountains. There's low parts there's high parts you can pretty much get anyone you want out of. Monterey and has been making wines forever and even though this is a seven ninety nine I think all you wine it's actually shown on sheds a website and they have tasting notes in bottle shots and you know normally for a For a brand why and I imagine at some point of all these doesn't have an exclusive contract with them. They can go out and sell anywhere they want to But this is a sold at Aldi prices. And it's a wine that's made by a legitimate. Really well respected. Family owned winery. They have expensive wines. Seventy eight hundred dollar single vineyard wines and have these six ninety seven ninety nine chardonnays allstate fruit loose for the most part spires. I can tell and I think we had the red cloak wine a glass week before as petites. Iran was really good and had a great It had had a great Label on it and this one has William Rights more of a classic kind of a label. You know it's it's a really good drinking chardonnay. There's nothing at all wrong. You know. I'll I'll Chardonnay Zor different. Always say that people never hear someone go. I don't like Sharona said Gee. How can you say that? Because in the end they're all kind of along the same themes both from California. Everybody makes them different. They do everything differently. You know no one makes it the same way there's all these different processes they can do and you can have to him and a quarter doom and do not at all and do some twice and so they're never the same thing so that's pretty good. I'm GONNA take a sip of the Chardonnay because Why am I glass? So you know two plus two Nice Little Chardonnay got good Mafias Guy Acidity It's got a nice nice array of flavors. It's kind of really melded. Flavors like melon apples and pears in lyman peaches. And you know just a little loud. It's tastes all Kinda mingle together. Which is kind of Nice and Scott? Really bright fruit and nose to it. It's Chardonnay I mean it is a no issues Chardonnay at all and it's seven ninety nine at all that you can grab it as you go by. You know to buy fifteen other items to get out of the store before someone breathes on you. So it's you know it's it's pretty nice. Little Chardonnay does the trick at Drinks Way. Better than an eight chartres. A dollar Chardonnay should though you know at one point that actually meant something when he got a great wind was under ten bucks or maybe not a great one. Be At a really a nice drinking wine under ten bucks. Oh that's crazy nowadays. It's par for the course but still maintain their SIP. Which tells you you know. I think I just the five minute mark and I'm about take my second SIP. You can't count how much I like. The Wind. A HOMINID SIPS. There are either that or the winds got a really good story. And I'm talking way too much to drink. Which does happen occasionally. And but that's that so this is getting you know it's hard to get wine. You can double up to good Chardonnay you can. Don't buy one bottle got to get three because when you're sitting at home and you you know what's the wires free on.

Joe's has their own brands and they contract somebody who makes these brands for them and if they're popular you seem again and again for years. These are one off lines. Easier kind of special deal. So they're actually something you Kinda WanNa look for. Cas sometimes their wines that Might be normally selling for much more but trader Joe's gets a deal and sometimes they're winds. It should sell what they sell for. You never know. But that's kind of the fun of it and they never cost too much money. Though I did see that they had a twenty dollar Napa Oakville cab and I'm thinking I don't know about that. 'cause you get into the Ranger. I can actually get producers that I know not some unspecified producers that make you know decent Napa wines for and that money and side about that one but this is a Monterey up you know. Nuwara and Monterey is just south of San Francisco Monterey Bay and actually the largest producer of Pinot Noir in California beat Santa Barbara and can narrow San Russian reverence nomad coast and All the famous ones don't always think of Monterey when you think of Pinot Noir but they do very well for themselves and It's also I think the number two Chardonnay producer and part of the reasons why they can do. This is off the coast. There's the big blue spot. There's a big hole in the ocean at the water goes very deep meth like a castration of cold water and it gives the breeze off the shore and it's nice and cold and So there's a lot of cool weather areas in Monterey and is awesome coastal mountains or the black the cold air the nurse warmer areas so you. Monterey has a lot of different wines and a lot of them are fairly affordable though they do have they're pricey winds. I'm GONNA take a sip of this one because it's kind of interesting. There's a little bit spicier than most wines but on the other end. It has a little bit of Rounded smooth blackberry and milk chocolate so and take a sip because I like taking a sip has got really good mouth. Feel it's It's a smooth and silk and your palate a little heavy. I think it's thirteen point on the alcohol. Which isn't that crazy nowadays. You know Back in the day like with Burgundy if it was over twelve five people had a fit but in California you can get a little hotter. It's not it's not a on those the`real Pinot noirs were all the flavors just kind of low by and it's not one of those. Pena no wires. That are kind of poplar nowadays that you can confuse for Sarah. It's you know it's maybe I look closer to a heavy but it's not a theory. Oh that's pretty good and there's not that much to say about it I don't they. Don't tell you anything about it. You know if I knew a little bit like one of the reasons. Pinot Noir. It looks inexpensive about Pinot. Noir has gotten really good in the last years because they're starting to make the make the wines and Beaujolais which which is using Carbonic maceration which is a technique that brings all the flavors together quicker and it comes so you can sell it sooner in the age of those long and it works in bourgeois all of a sudden these inexpensive cannon nets wonderful Pinot. Noirs are kind of like pretty good in their own right and. I don't know if they did this here because they don't tell you too much about anything. trader. Joe's that's one. They're valued wine partners and got a whole bunch of them and they actually have if you know who makes them in Kano unabashed them on this one. But they're big name producers. You know just a big name producer. Made a doesn't mean like the the big name winemaker made or they made it with the grapes. They normally use it could be you know grapes. They purchased from somewhere and it could be their associate winemaker. Their intern winemaker. I mean you don't know but it's with the big name. Producer is kind of a guaranteeing the quality a little bit and making sure everything's fine and that's good And this is ninety nine. It's a Monterey Pino new wire. It's a one off me and it's not gonNA be around next year if you see it give it a try. It's it's it's kind of different. It's got this rounded milk chocolate and And Black Cherry thing and it's got At first it's it it smooth out but had this. All toyed spices like boom is sharp. Hit of candy hot spice and the two of them mashed like. Whoa then the little after a while the the smoother flavors just kind of took over in the spice calm down and yeah so but that's kind of fun when he had a Pinot noir and it's got a foam you gotta wine. That does some things that you don't normally get in. It's gotTa Fun when it only cost nine ninety nine and you know. That's what trader. Joe's reserve winds are good for you. Take a chance and see what you get. It's a one off thing you know. By the time you go back and get another one sold out and you wait for the next thing that come along so it's just Take a chance and see what you get. It's one of those winds and you're going to go to nice interesting wine and when it comes to pin and wire interesting half the battle. I don't know so for me I don't have. I don't know who made it. I know who sold it? Don't have too many details of the tasty Nelson everything in the cheap wine finer dot com website. Where I wrote that out So if you if you're in trader Joe's stop The same people made this made the Chilean Pinot Noir. Which is the piano. Northern got the seventeen hundred scene of a party in the animals are not are the party not humans and their worrying mask of different animals. It's one of my favorite wine labels. If it doesn't have skulls on at least you have animals pretending to be other animals. So that's it for me. You know somebody you made. Why Pinot Noir that I liked before ten bucks. Give it a shop. It's all good. What can you ask for audio over now? And we'll have some other things. I think I'm not to cast this week. We'll see what they have to offer the New Year and talk to you in a few days.
