A Rocky Time for Google's Hardware Division
"Know who's not doing great. Google's hardware division. There have been a lot of shakeups and if you have been following along with the news as of last week then you might have heard about some. You might have heard about some t that's been spilled over at mountain view. Hq So as we learned from this very revelatory article published in the information which is a subscription only publication We are actually going to kind of give you the Quick Little T. L. DR points since not everybody can go immediately and read it So I one of the big reveals was that Mark Levin the person who is basically in charge of that wonderful Pixel Algorithm that made photos look so nice He left back in March. So actually since we've been in quarantine probably maybe right before he left who knows So that along with the departure of Pixels Mario Qudos last August which was kind kind of quietly You know snuck under the rug. This wasn't really something that we knew about. I mean we just found out about this last week really Sooner approach I was actually on the latest verge. Cast to Talk Abou this particular report He said that hardware is hard and that Google's playing to continue playing the long game by integrating the Hardware Division with nest absorbing ACC's mobile division and a couple of other little bits. They're just KINDA UNIFY. Those teams versus having them be in kind of their own spaces. He also talked about two to three years for deeper investments to bear fruit. I'm assuming that was you know relating to the Pixel lineup but we are coming upon the what the fourth bill for this one You know this also could possibly tied to the rumors that Google is creating. Its own chipset. And there's a lot of folks out there wondering if that news is something that's going to Kinda herald us into this new age of Pixel devices. What do you guys think or? Do you think this is all just kind of a don't you know? Let's Ya tempest tempest in a teapot. Yes yeah I mean I guess the question is are we worried about where the direction of Pixel phone when you've got the person who's behind arguably the critical key feature of the phones from day one along with another person who's critical to the division as a whole stepping out does does that signal any any warning You know any warnings Well yeah any warning signals around that I'm not sure how much effect this change would have on it. How much of Their DNA is already placed on the Pixel Brand But I mean you know it's also really important too to note that the Pixel devices as a whole hasn't really lived the world on fire. They certainly have done what Google intended for for them to do. I think they probably intended for these. These devices to go toe to toe with with the devices like the iphone and Samsung devices. And they're just not I mean but we are on. I'll I'll take all object to that though based on what though I don't I don't get the sense that Google ever expected this to go toe-to-toe the iphone in any capacity. I think that's I think that's almost a foolish endeavor. I think what I always took away from the from the Pixel. The pixels placement was to create the best in Google class. You know device to show off everything to do with android to really set the bar for Samsung End. A she see end one plus and all the other folks all the other. Oem that are using the the operating system. I think to to try to put out a device that would go toe with the iphone. Would would you know like it's you can after all this time period right? So what you have to do with the lead. By example so in that regard I think the Pixel has been a success. I think I personally never expected pixel sale. I think it would be it would be ignorant. It'd be naive to think that all of a sudden the whole world was going to be using a pixel been you have so many millions of of people who are in the Samsung ecosystem and so many millions of people in Motorola or whatever. It might be so I don't know I and I don't know what their goals are with the program. Who knows. I think if you if you if you create a piece of hardware correctly it. It doesn't have the DNA of just one person it could be said that the fund was Steve Jobs as last big project at has. Dna was all over it. But here we are. You know fifteen years later and that that piece of hardware keeps rolling on. Yeah so I it's. It's the future of the device will be defined by if they can outlive people who come and go and the you know becomes its own entity that other people you know becomes a some the sum total parts of everything every every put into it

"Can afford to buy a plate and so Mountain View as in one town that is essentially over majority sixty nine percent are just renters where if work stoppages are you going to be our normal for the next year or two years what does that say about our current system has the ability where prop thirteen S. favors landowners and that rent control tries to balance that out for renters the really nothing is getting billed as more jobs are being created and we just keep going toward this place where we have young families will never be able to be established this a lot packed into your call here DO go but I'm going to defer here have been Metcalf they just talk about the whole systemic question that he I think is raising and what we need to do and what we can learn from this pandemic perhaps it ought to be done then yep yep great great observation I think look for our first priority has to be just bad dating problem and we need immediate intervention we need to solve the catastrophe that's unfolding and particularly looking at even a few months as unemployment insurance benefits go away at some of the forbearance of the relief goes way we're really going to be falling off a cliff but I think if we don't also look at this as a chance to rethink some of the assumptions that we had going into this that we're gonna no matter where we land at the end will be worse off than where we started and I think if you look back historically to other moments of great national crisis they have been places where new ideas have been tested that have been very helpful many of the housing programs that are first Americans rely on you mention the section eight program and look about tax cuts these other programs have been born of economic crises that have precipitated new ways of thinking about staying I think we need more affordable housing I think we also need to rethink some of the reasons why housing has not traditionally been getting built in place White Mountain View why we've been locked into a source of single family subdivision kind of construction technology and I think they're too we have great examples I am a big fan of what happened in Santa Rosa actually after the North Bay wildfires as civic and political leadership got together to rethink some of the reasons why it was just too darn hard to build housing at any price point and made a whole suite of very important changes to make it easier to build I think there are opportunities that come out of crisis and we need to be alert to this and I think what you're driving at here and what is coming out of this conversation is the need for access to federal rental assistance with all of them particularly for low income people low income households and the dearth of affordable and low entry housing especially in my office actually also okay thank you so much she added thank you I just want to add to to Amanda said you know this is also a problem that you know for many many years on the federal government has also been this investing actually from the section eight voucher program it has been designed by staying from public housing reducing the amount of CDBG grants and so I think definitely what we're experiencing now is also and as a result of that as well and so I think definitely bad for not for all of us to come out of this everybody intact hopefully is that you know the federal government needs to really reverse that course and reverse that they'll do the other extreme which is the need to reinvest as much as possible in housing at the federal level including the section eight program including in a public housing including other printer housing that will create stability for the long term but I go back to the main event been Mecca yeah did you want to have something come down and I thought I heard the voice yeah yeah I mean the only thing I would say is that I mean I totally agree with that look and act like the federal government is basically kind of ignoring the reality of what's needed but I also think that that that what this can damage is shown is that there's not enough housing and it's it's kind of crazy that we're talking about this housing shortage in this housing crisis when we can't build a go back to Ben's court I mean it's crazy that you are charging you know a hundred thousand dollars in fees to build a unit and on top of that that you can get the unit built in different neighborhoods who don't want higher density housing Mexican it's crazy this situation points out that you know what we ought to set a goal build five thousand houses in the next two months some choirs doubt that would definitely create a a win win for everybody well this week I construction going again thanks to it being opened up by governor Newsom but I wonder if time if I get a response from you to a tweet from Stevens says regarding rent mortgage relief should there be a distinction between small mom and pop landlords and large investment group that owns thousands of properties why should investors get a bailout if you were out you know what I mean great great question I mean you know the smaller owners clearly are are hit the hardest but the other thing you got to remember is a lot of these larger corporations and he's asking a lot of them basically they're getting their dollars from pension accounts I mean you know even in the California public employees retirement system state teachers retirement system if you look at where they are getting a large return on their investment it's through real estate and you know a five percent return is is a good return for these pension account so if you don't provide some relief then all of a sudden the pension accounts which are already in California at a deficit they get hurt even more so both sides yeah I can see both sides one piece of advice and I hope this will not be taken necessarily the hard for those of you who don't feel this way but it's a good thing not to look at your pension reports now in the state Henniker let me get Emily on externally thank you.

Does Mount Diablo Have the Biggest View in the World?
"Okay so we set out to learn if Mount. Diablo is in fact numeral dose on the list of places on Earth where you can see the most land reporter Assault Asana takes a winding road to find out. The mystery of the view from Mount. Diablo is a romantic one steeped in local legend to find out. If it's true I drove to the source itself. Six hundred feet arrive at your destination from the base of the mountain. It takes me about an hour to get to the top. Well took so long. Mount Diablo sits on the eastern edge of the Bay area in Contra Costa County. But you can see. It's double peak pyramid from most spots around the bay at three thousand eight hundred forty nine feet. The mountains view is second to none. Well it's second to one. Maybe we'll find out so the view and you come up. Here is really amazing. How it compares. To Kilimanjaro is up for debate. But I'm kind of partial to the view here from Mount Diablo and I think most people would come pretty amazed by what the view looks like my tour guide today is Sharon Peterson. Mount Diablo state parks interpreter. Which she says means her job is to tell the story of the park. Sharon takes me to the summit's viewing deck. She says the clear day. You can see forty of California's fifty eight counties from here as little as one percent of some of those counties but still this is where we walk out into the wind. I she points West so you can see the Golden Gate Bridge today. You could see both towers with the naked eye and if I give you the binoculars you can probably for sure. She whips them out and there. It is the Golden Gate Bridge Sixty miles away two towers peaking over round top in the Berkeley Hills. That's really really cool. Then we turned north and you can see the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers forming the Delta South. It's a sweeping view of the Diablo range and livermore pleasanton and finally east or through the haze we catch a glimpse of the snow-speckled Sierra rising above the Central Valley over a hundred miles away. And I heard that you can also see Yosemite from here on a clear day you can and with binoculars you can see Sentinel Dome. There is a rumor that you can see half dumb but it's actually blocked by one of the land features in between seeing it for myself. The site is so magnificent so magical that feels like. I'm looking down at a watercolor. The only thing that compares is the view from a plane. Maybe it's possible. The Myth is true. It's absolutely not true. The Mount Diablo has the largest view in the world. Except for Mount Kilimanjaro. Seth Adams is the land conservation director at Save Mount Diablo and he spent a lot of time myth. Busting the Kilimanjaro claim. I never quite believed it. It just didn't have the ring of truth to me because it's a small mountain and common sense would tell you the taller. The mountain the bigger view but considering the myth has been repeated hundreds of times. He says it makes sense. People would believe it. Seth trace the infatuation with Diablo back to the eighteen fifties and sixties when scientists like Hosea Whitney first geologically surveyed the mountain. That's Jose Whitney of Mount Whitney the tallest mountain in the Sierra Nevada. Jose Whitney road. It is believed that there are few if any points on the earth's surface from which so extensive and area maybe seen as from Mount Diablo the whole area thus spread out can hardly be less than forty thousand square. Miles the legend snowballed from there repeated over and over for decades through the end of world. War Two a time when people really start experiencing parks and mountains. Recreationally and Mount. Diablo became a Goto tourist spot. The Kilimanjaro Claims Circulated and travel guides and hiking maps by railroad companies and Auto Associations Even Contra Costa County described it as quote the world's greatest view more territory visible than from any point in the world but as visitors flocked to Diablo for the views entrepreneur side. Chance to make a buck. More than half of Mount Diablo was locked up. Successively by two big real estate land speculators both of them printed brochures by the thousands that includes the claimed amount of having the largest boasting that claim was a smart business. Move for one developer. In nineteen seventeen he had a dream of building. Thousands of homes on Diablo's western flank and those amazing views helped push his agenda forward. Eventually the developer went bankrupt and the deal flopped. But it was too late. The brochures had done their work. Oh you can definitely credit the brochures for spreading the misinformation. But it's just too good acclaim the largest few in the world right and understand that California was a promoter's dream which brings us to another promoter the entrepreneur Walter p frick who hired a publicist to help him spread the rumor. The Mount Diablo had the greatest view on earth especially as he built an eight foot beacon tower known as the eye of Diablo but frick was working with engineers from the standard oil company and they were skeptical. Someone for the first time said come on biggest view in the entire world so after that the nineteen twenty eight standard oil bulletin added a footnote to their brochure except for a point in Africa. Clearly being Mount Kilimanjaro. From their the legend shifted from Mount Diablo having the largest few in the world to the second largest it went on like this until nineteen ninety four when it was officially debunked by an engineer slash mountaineer. Who did the math? His name was Edward Earl but he went by the nickname. Seven point three eight nine zero five six zero nine nine math joke. She said I don't believe this. And so what I'M GONNA do is. I'm going to find the problem. And I'm going to calculate view sheds for lots of other mountains and see how they compare view. Shed is the area visible from a specific vantage point including land or water. Now Remember Whitney speculated Diablo's view shed was about forty thousand square miles but according to earls calculations it's actually between thirteen and twenty one thousand. That might still sound like a lot but from other Taller Mountains. You can see more than three times as much and even for a total non mathematician like me. It kind of makes sense. Mount Kilimanjaro is five times the size of Mount Diablo so diop blow couldn't possibly have a comparable view shed even if it is an isolated peak.

Follow interests instead of people with Cake
"Tax questions or concerns anywhere and even on nights and weekends turbo tax. All people are tax people. Okay so we've all complained about the ills of social media. And all the weirdness that's going on aircraft mccaskill is also worried about it and did something about it to start a site. That's all about interest instead of following people. Chris's the Co-founder OF CAKE DOT. Co and. I'm sitting with him in downtown mountain view. Right now Chris. Tell anybody about how you solve. Some of those ills part of it is focusing on the interest graph instead of the social graph so facebook is all about following people and instagram and twitter. And when you do that you get everything that that person has to say like. Your uncle wants to talk about politics. And you're following him because you want to keep track of the nieces or something like that whereas with interest graph you follow photography cars motorcycles art whatever. It may be that you love and you can go as deep as you want and those subject areas like for example. You have a passion for Photography. You can go very deep on cake on photography. 'cause you're talking to other photographers whereas on facebook. It's hard to go that deep on photography. 'cause you mom doesn't care about the lens you use and things like that so Interest graph companies are on the rise. Pinterest went public led by Goldman Sachs read. It has been growing like crazy. Those are both interest graph based companies and so So I think it's the trend and you're finding that people are getting better response. I know at least I am he way. Better response on cake From other folks that are there then. I get on facebook and twitter. Well the funny thing is nicer. Yeah the funny thing is when it comes to response if you post a photo of your engagement or something like that you you know engagement for a wedding or something like that. Somebody proposed you get good engagement on facebook and word gets used in different ways But if you post something about you know you want to buy a new Ford car on facebook or something like you have to find a facebook group. It's just about Ford cars or you don't get engagement at all whereas on cake you pick a topic like Ford cars mustangs and things. You get really good engagement. Because people are there because they're interested in subjects like that so it's similar to a facebook group it's similar to a facebook group without the algorithm without the algorithm and And much richer. Yeah it's much richer in terms of media photos and videos and all that kind of stuff and you guys don't track people we don't track people so that is one thing about facebook. There's a downside to track and people invade your privacy and so on but it also surfaces really interesting information so for example Google tracks you heavily but they use that to produce good search results on the other hand they track you and that's creepy so you could use duct go. They don't track

Travel to Switzerland
"I like to welcome the show Zach best from Boston. Who has come to talk to us about Switzerland Zach? Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. That's for having me and before we get started. What is your connection with Switzerland? I I went to Switzerland in the summer of two thousand eighteen with the biology undergraduate summer school and that was at the University of Zurich. I want there to do research a issue for the summer and that I really I fell in love with country with Zirk and I decided to look for another program to go back in the summer of Twenty nineteen and I applied for the thinks with scholarship. I should and with that. I went back to the University of Zurich again. Right did immunology research for the summer. Very cool in. Why should someone on travel to Switzerland so I will say that Switzerland is beautiful? But there's a lot of places in the world that are beautiful so I think there's a few additional things that make Switzerland a very good destination to go to for And that is. It's a very small country. which makes it so that there's a very high density of locations to get to and it's very easy to get to all of them not just because there's a lot in their close together but because there's a lot of infrastructure in terms of trains and buses Nelson Cable car is to get too high up in the mountains even if you're not someone who hikes all the time you can still get to that a top the mountain view and then also it's very safe and while the main language is an English and I don't speak any German under French Italian I was able to refine with Dhaka or bt and asking people to speak in English? So I would say hey. Those are the reasons you should go there on vacation. Excellent and what kind of tenor are you recommending for us. Today I've played a little itinerary. Three of what. If you wanted to tour around the center of Switzerland's so this will go from Zurich to Lucerne to the interlocken region and to burn and I'll talk about day trips from each location so Salang mountains because primarily what I did there on. The weekends was hiking. So we're not going to talk about about necessarily in the matterhorn but stuff. That is more in the center of the country so that you could probably do it in one trip and easier and simpler fashion excellent. So you're starting us in Zurich. I'm assuming better plane connections there then promptly anywhere else in the country yes exactly start off with flying into Zirk Irk. And then I'll say that order. This itinerary doesn't really matter so you could go from Zurich Bern interlocking where he can go from Zurich Lucerne earn or. You could even do this as day trips from Zurich which for me. I was only traveling on the weekends because I had to do research in the lab during the week right and so all of my traveling leveling was as day trips which can get hectic it can lead to a long day but it's totally possible with the trains and you can definitely fit in in fact the second time I was there in summer two thousand nineteen. My mom can stay with me for a week and we saw the country by doing day trips from Zurich and went to a lot of these places in that way so really. What works best for you in terms of you find a great hotel deal for week certain area you can go there in still all these destinations from that point instead of having to do it in the loop that I'm gonNA lay up but to walk you through it in a manner that maybe makes sense mentally? I'll go from Zurich Eric Wizard interlocking.

"Towns learn is referring to are Melbourne and Mountain View what is explaining is in order to dump the body if the killers from Mountain View here she was going out of their way there's so many places out there that I can think of reporter we parted on calling on you know just places you wouldn't know unless you little known you know but it wasn't a no but I mean I'm from that area so we're gonna kill somebody I've got him in the salt mines ground hello I'm just saying like the river right yeah but I just I just I don't find it weird because I've always had the the the believe somebody somebody locally but you don't want to go back to you know I mean was you trying to get to that spot I mean it's so that's probably the quickest way but if you're from Mountain View everybody goes back to Mountain View you're done if you're on the ground yeah Clooney is always looked again but there there might be something they're like why go through today or you or anybody ever like party in case you don't actually is that I think was transaction yeah I really didn't even know where you live for like the longest time because he didn't live there you know so you know even to this day I think I've been in that place one time and it was that for.

"Mountain View Arkansas to investigate killed twenty two year old respected fourteen years ago killer is never been brought to justice and may still live in the small town you're invited to join the investigative team as they track down the suspect embed themselves in the town and try to finally bring back as killer to justice this is the Helen gone podcast it's going okay a guy just called me is that we're in a fight against god and Satan and demonic entities and it was just insane insane after a long week of writing an investigation I'm very ready to get home and as per usual in the Ozarks I have no cell reception this time when I get back into range my phone has a hundred missed calls and text messages one of them is Krista sister so here's what happened I hear that Chris is been arrested and it turns out that he was arrested for making terroristic threats and for burglary that's what I hear even though I don't think Chris had anything to do with the murder of Rebecca he's not doing himself any favours by visiting her ex boyfriend's house Chris is kids are getting tax according to the sister saying that you know your dad to kill or and it's just it's just awful this is an awful situation in September of two thousand four twenty two year old Rebecca Gould brutally murdered in a remote area the Arkansas Ozark fourteen years later her killer is still out there I've come back to Mountain View with one mission to get justice for back at I'm Catherine towns in this is Helen gone this story we heard from the police is that Chris went over to Justin's house and he told him if he talks he'll kill him that's not what happened Chris and his friend happened to be a re Justin's houses the frame was had a friendship with Justin's wife or whatever and they were over there to see her and you know then Justin came home and I'm sure because of the connection sure there were words exchanged about the case because they haven't seen each other in a long time but that wasn't the cause of him going over there at all Tommy went over there not we don't know what went down behind closed doors it all sounds very fishy that on the Chris is the only one the charges against them any gets charged with burglary not because he took anything that because if you're at someone's house without permission you get charged with burglary and he's very fishy also that I had one came out in the paper saying back in two thousand for murder and do you know it just looks like they're trying to throw it on Chris once again it feels like that it really does when you're young right now now now I mean and he doesn't help himself I don't know the article got posted yesterday but but from what I eat from what I hear it was a few days ago I'm trying to I'm getting the affidavit now I'm figuring out when it happened and getting all the details right now and that's it Dennis told Krista sister but all the evidence in the case points to crest and that he wants to get this case solved before he's retired and he said all the evidence points to Chris your family's trash and yeah I mean that he said that to her I believe our out that's what's going on but they don't want us to get the good news on that is even Chris and a sister don't want it they they know like there are calling us and trying to help so get this right the sister trying to bail me out and she's like Chris keeps saying so crass my word is my bond I don't need a lawyer I've got my word now I'm like you know you might get a liar and she said I'm trying to get a lawyer we don't have any money Chris is this is like the fifth job Chris is lost because these guys keep arrested him you know she said now he's not blameless in this Chris doesn't really dumb stuff you know he's got himself in trouble now that Chris is in jail it is even more vital that we find our back is killer I reached out to Casey at the beginning of my investigation and he hasn't gotten back to me at even though he's the one person he's been officially rolled out as a suspect by the police now I want to find out if his alibi is airtight they claim it is hello I mean maybe I'm wrong and and maybe and look to see the V. doesn't if he doesn't get back to us ever maybe it will come knocking on his door but like I still have some hope that he might get in touch with us everyone's at a much he loved her in like a guy who was do you see the topics for about him and it says so I met this guy named Casey something and he I used to sing in a band anyone knows I'm talking about yeah and then and then everybody says this one says fairly decent guy I think he works at Melbourne sonic he's really sweet he's been done wrong by the past yeah it's definitely wanted him it's definitely how I seem so really haunted him and now he seems to be happy and and settled and everything but it's really it's also really crazy because you think about and you're like she should have all these things she's got a husband a baby and you know she's got the opportunity to be an answer sisters kids and you know all those things and like she doesn't have any of those things now but then eventually it's gonna be a look do like you say you love this girl you know she was so important you and like she got murdered really you know something and if he has nothing to hide you should be willing to talk about it that was his friend and he loved her and you know you want to find it at this exactly his house was just droid I if somebody murders somebody in my house so we go back to the time line and what we know September twentieth two thousand for Casey told police that after Becca dropped him off at work in the morning he was at work all day until shift and it then he went to the movies and stayed out with his friends that whole night but some people in town of heard a different story remember Lisa she was the farmer's daughter her husband was the one who owned the sonic we're both Casey and Rebecca worked your call she was able to hold something that you're there all the time but I mean I wanted other quite a bit they always work together Hey it was where it's at share our home torque and dropped him off at a I don't know why I think my because your uncle and she wasn't working I'm not sure she was off on break or something but she has not morning fallible I find that he followed her he has a lan but he went to work and I guess the regular readers your and they don't and so he wants to work with the plans and I actually went out to the movies on the I'll hang out that night and he said he didn't return home until really late and they said he was there for the whole package yeah okay here at work with that plan to him alright I want to go out to a movie or what she's saying matches the story that was reported in the papers and what I've heard from others Casey was at work all day and out with his friends all night you know they yeah and he what happened with the longing a lot of things that because you know they yeah okay here we go thank a lot of things that you have a lot of I don't understand do you think that your ex husband could help us with the records of who was working at sonic that day all right so least unload some new information I haven't heard before she said that Casey may have stopped at home at some point before he went there with the police on Tuesday when you're recording you may hang up or at least as husband Joey isn't calling is back sometimes people don't want to get involved because they're hiding something other times especially in this case it can be because they're scared George is proven to be a valuable member of our team is the only one who was there at the time reporting on the murder and is emotionally and physically removed enough to give me some real answers what what do you think about Casey now I don't know he talks to me several times initially after her body was found and in in it I contacted his wife his now wife probably in two thousand sixteen colder work it's just like someone to talk to me so I wanted to kind of update the case and I want to get it dive into some more details because like you said it's been you know at that time it had been twelve years I mean you're getting to the point where it doesn't matter if you're someone reading people this is a cold case in you know and you never know when one little saying will break in the case one story runs one rumor starts and then all the sudden everything changes so I just wanted to talk to him and so I called her and she was really nice very nice very friendly gave me her phone number and his phone number I try to contact him and he would not talk to me wall then I try to contact her and she wouldn't contact me back at me and she told me she's always love to talk to you but then so then I finally contact her work again and I said Hey I've been trying to get a hold of Ewing case and I'm able to get all these guys just always doesn't talk about his I think it will do me any good to talk to you and possible that may be true I mean I'm I'm just a journalist but I would like to talk to you know the story is you know she went and dropped him off at work and then she went to the the possum trot convenience store got a couple things and then laughed went back to his house and then somewhere sometime during the morning she died he got off work and then he went to stay the night a friend's house and went straight to work the next day so he never returned to his house to see the folded clothes also stuff well then I heard a separate story that he did go home the next morning to get some fresh clothes for work and so.
Cities are banning natural gas in new homes, citing climate change
"A growing number of US cities are taking a stand against gas stoves long billed as a more convenient way to cook because of their contribution to climate change since June a dozen cities have banned natural gas equipment in new buildings Berkeley California was the first follow industry by San Jose Mountain View Santa Rosa and Brisbane a half dozen other cities have also passed laws to strongly encourage all electric construction without burning fossil fuels out right here on the east coast Brookline Massachusetts and November became the first city in the state of brand new gas hookups a home with a gas stove likely uses gas for other purposes and it's those other appliances the furnace and the washer and dryer there are most responsible for climate warming pollution however in recent years Americans have use gas more than any other fuel except oil a major reason carbon emissions have capped
"mountain view" Discussed on hopnology: Hop Growing and Brewing for Craft Beer
"We supply rivers with different grinds tones of eight years. We also supply wineries and recently here Kombucha for each and then we supply growers different varieties of plants. And then also the studies and things that we're finding out our Hoffler that information engine passable the damn thin area gross imposs- and then consumers yourself films plants soaps hop candles ornaments. I mean anything. Come up to wrong. Farmers markets retail stores over festival. So I have a question for you to hear mark that when when we were talking last week about the early phase seven phases of basically how to wreck hot business You know when everybody starts is an experimental phase no matter which direction you're going and it sounds like in that experimental phase. You really did poke around and you looked at multiple opportunities and you you decided upon at say non traditional view of being in the Production Industry Right so most folks folks as we said. Greg said you're going to drive towards making hop pellets. Or you're going to look at the brewers you're single only source of revenue generation. And actually. That's like the lowest margin you could possibly go for is the street and and it's it's just the way it is It's a it's a volume market Even the quality is important quality. Doesn't there's no way to metric quality and attach in higher value to it right now yet we're working on it But this idea of saying what else is in my sphere of influence. What's that I know about can tap that meets my requirements for you? Know a good business enterprise and so when you were looking get like growing plants and doing all these other things at what point where you're looking at those did you say yes. This is something that we are going to do and be in it as an what other things did you look got what you said. No we're not GONNA do that. I think we are still in the beginning So I started throwing POPs twenty sixteen. When we started using his abou- Alexandra was launched? So we are just under two years. Old Phase of trying. New Things is expanding. It works doesn't and I think we're right in that moment As far as things that don't work we have that outsourced the little items here and there marks tests and I usually start small just a handful of items and if they don't sell where regard I just don't do So yeah we're still in that experimental. Let's ask you in South West Virginia. Here's the I own this much in this little region rob at There are a few other rowers farther in southwest and Central Virginia. I think it lasts recording. There was only maybe fifty eight to offset the whole state. So we're I'm at a very specific niche and I can do just about anything or want to experiment and see where the notes and do you feel that given your you know relatively new exposure but yet I I would say you've you're probably a leader certainly in your state if not your local area and what. You're you know in the Hop Industry Greg and I. I think it was off off off Mike last week the week before we were talking about things that infuriate us about about business in the concept of failure rate so I tried this and it failed. I tried a new market and it failed and so we pivot. I don't think that's fair. We you have to try. Try things some things are succeed more than others. But if you don't try you'll never gonNA know and how do you what's the early indicators for you when you're trying something new when you're probing a new market or new product. How does it have to to get you excited about moving forward honestly? That's a very very question because not only about bruins plants and testing bronze over the Hump Yard also testing merchandise. The plants themselves rotates very broad question. So you know as it pertains to or call the secondary market sources off awesome. Something like that but the biggest entertainer for me is does itself. I mean working people want And like I said put out a handful things and I'm not afraid of failure. I put on his testing research on the roadside airframe access. And if you hop Aubenas Sanford what not to do then you know that's information too but we're trying not to not to do things wrong. Definitely want to improve hearings like you've taught all said before finance all being thing you have to measure your finance but back to your original question so when it comes rolling the price test different broadens our rates three or four years I before making a determination or most grimes whether they rolled out with our hop over knock. It takes before years and it'd be plant one one year you whip whip it up so yeah you do have a little bit of loss a little bit of family sometimes your finances if sprays time and everything else butts. What's information saw? I hope that sub bridge. Yeah that that That cost is something Greg. I refer to as tuition because it is and and I think we talked about it last week. All these things are blurred together now but the concept of love. You know we're competing. Who are we competing against? And we're competing if you're certainly if you're selling hops to brewers as your primary revenue generator you're competing against people and families and enterprises that are multigenerational. They have paid that tuition over and over again years ago. And we've got a week we expect to catch up to that so but we also can't be naive and the fact that it's going to be very expensive for us. Yep Yep so I think that's one thing people maybe get frustrated in those early phases and when it comes to pivot point. If if they're stubborn bullheaded like I am. They're going to damn it. I'm GonNa do this and instead of saying maybe I should pivot and take a look at something something else. What is my risk tolerance? I have a very very high risk. Tolerance has all my business partners no way higher than any of theirs so I I need to be headed off now again. Yeah high risk. Tolerance can sometimes equals stubbornness. If you're not careful and we we use the phrase last week Cognitive dissonance you know persistence down ineffective course when you're just convinced that you're right but we're not talking about you know. Oh well but it's it's the truth and it's funny because it's true And I'll be honest. I mean ego place. No small part in that but But anyway back back on topic topic so you got. I was looking at your website this morning. You're doing palance which for for us was a a fantastic revenue generator If you can get your system dialed in and it takes a little while but I think it's it's quicker. How how do I say this? The number of opportunities you get in a propagation turn to learn more and apply it to the next round is way faster than growing hiring hops For for brewing. So I think you've got an opportunity there to to make an impact and you know I saw your hop soaps and hop candles else and things like that. Where are you selling those? Where's your market right now? So the upsets off Campbell's farmers markets have been the number one moving generally our second as we've got about three or four retail Martin set with Samuel several cities around the area here Minutes when we look to expand US retail markets expanded. We might want a little bit more farmers markets taught allows That is the number one revenue generator so far off the first year we just implants and that Dennis prager only last fall and grindstone hops oats and rowing gold. Got a great recipe for the so people actually They are this year just recently about a month ago. Started doing hop fans and some of my pockets so people are really interested in this hopson the nine percent of what are you. These markets and missiles is a straight up education. What are hops? That's number one fishing. I get letter hops. And then you tell them to be running all their eyes vitamin start talking starter. Conversation with him and The hot so once it really unique. There's no denying that hops are sexy. Yes right right absolutely and you know I. I've been wondering and I think you just answered my question. I had without realizing it. And as as you as you've been talking about farmers markets about plants. I've been thinking to myself. Okay you're you're also still working part time. What's the Labor for this? Are you going to every farmer's I marketed or are you handing them off to someone else to sell but it sounds like you've you've got feet on the street for the most part in all this entire endeavor which is a lot of labor. We talk frequently about the cost of linger absolutely. I'm currently not making a whole lot on the labour pick but we're now point now are actually starting to pay back the money that we spent in the fun sods fertilizer and everything else so we are now. Just pay that money-back which is the Yeah I do vote you most all of the farmers markets and festivals and are auto retail shops. So so yeah a lot of time a lot of work my parents. They're very kind out family. Family Business So what's ended up happening now. My Mom and my dad actually do a lot of the civil and I make the candles of yard so that helps split it up a little bit to manage my time and then when I got family things I need to do to do some of the bars markets. So that really helps chiefs excellent. Do you foresee having to bring on employees and take this up a notch. Last I mean last you. I'm without arguing business financial X.. Number of dollars this year we will be almost right and if not at eight times last year and Dan Projections for next year are based on what we're doing now expansion obvious markets. We should all do this yourself. The money is really doing well. And you know what I'm talking about expansion two and what we're doing this year industry we ripping out some Karan's interlocking for years. Now we've done enough data to solving good for you. Yup Ribbons out hated making money on so now and we're putting or expanding those rods that are growing wall and that the Roy's of wineries everything that actually excellent wants so maybe we can make yard more profitable because we do get kind of two arts in season verse. Harmlessness Breweries models easel. Berries and in second harvest is what we use for our homes offsets angles just are not quite up to par a rolling flavor wise global view So are you is your brewery market primarily what hops or are during the. We do those so I wrote with my brothers and wineries during the winter months to say this about a hand is what you want and they they do take some wet hops. The light to others date since they can't use them for dry and so I've got a room down here in facing Jason House here the homebrew but a large street that linger about unify the rid of thirty five percent. He'd detained chief fans on. I can have you Yup and I mean something important to to mention there is as you I could. I could tell you like homebrew level fumbling. But it's important Horton. To note. That scale is irrelevant if you are if you understand the process and what why you're doing the way you lar- instead of just copying somebody else so I'm less concerned about your scale and more concerned about that. You understand the factors that go into determining how you're going to set up your system so don't be don't be sheepish about you. Only have a little home bruce that that doesn't matter because I have seen giant operations that just copy the guy next door and they have no freaking clue on how.
It All Starts with Data
"Hugh Welcome to the World Transformed Hayfield thanks a lot for having me it's absolute honored to be speaking with you well it's great to have you on you know I was reading over that list of topics there the streetlights smart parking intelligent traffic and security and we were talking about some of those things when you and I have met up at the Smart City oppose him last month and we you know there's there's a lot of discussions going on a lot of people throwing a lot of ideas around smart cities and one of the things I know list is that you've got a kind of a different take going into smart cities than maybe everyone else does when I when I had free matthews on the first installment of this is the first question to her was how do you define smart cities and I think I'll probably end up as out of everybody that I have on but I I really like where you were you start with him when I talked to Franny it's like when you talk about smart cities it all comes down to data but I would say your position is it all starts with Beta right absolutely and I mean just to answer the question about what what is a smart city I I mean I think first off all cities would would be a little a bit different in terms of their definition of a smart city but second to that I've never heard a single city called himself a dump city so interesting yeah we'll throw that out there you absolutely It starts with with data from my perspective when the smart city bom kind of kind of kicked off it was a premise that cities have a ton of data and they're not doing anything with it and so fast forward a few years and every city that I'm in I see you know solution the providers coming in and they're selling hardware whereas from my perspective I WanNa understand and I think it's important for the city so understand what are you have to day and look at the look at the number one number two number three initiatives and start with the data that you currently have and then move forward with what improvements you would like to make to to solve for the initiatives that you have for the for the stadium and its citizens absolutely well I one of the things that I found interesting in our discussion was yeah you can you can look around and see that there are a host of solutions offered for smart cities and some of its hardware and some soft solutions and people have while they have methodologies there's there's a whole lot of there's a whole lot of infrastructure showing up in support of smart cities but it does kind of come down to this question of well okay so you've got a solution have you identified the problem I right do you know what problem you're trying to solve with smart cities maybe people need to take take a step back and look at that when I absolutely I mean it was you know initially it was streetlights everyone you know jumped on the re lamping yes it is of upgrading the street lights to led's and then connecting them and then from the connecting of the street lights now the ability to deploy other sensors and and things of that nature and and while I'm not in disagreement with that I think that that's not the city's biggest problem the cities themselves have have a number of challenges starting from the inside in terms of the vertically integrated organization engage with themselves all the way to the OT side of the of the world where you're you're you're deploying all of these Sensors for people owning and vehicle counting and and what have you environmental monitoring and everything of that nature but again I when I look at it it's Oh city have to have a vision for what they seek to achieve and then they have to start asking the right questions of other solution providers to ensure that these solutions are actually going to solve my problem or move me in the right direction so I kind of I kind of look at it whereas the solution providers are understanding that there's problems in the city and they think that well if you if you deploy mine hi solution we will provide you these new insights and I would argue that in a lot of instances there's data already available within the city now it may not be it'd be quality data that that you're looking for but you should start with that to identify where you need to augment and add or improve because whatever else you're gonNA get from any new system you put in place or any especially any new device you put in place of Ugo Smart Street lamps or Smart Street lights thanks what are they going to do what they're going to produce a bunch more data you're going to have even more and you haven't figured out who the daddy you got yeah exactly and and on top of that if if if I'm a city I'm GonNa see I O or I'm the city manager and I have these vertically integrated organizations and street lights are deployed so public works is looking at the street lights and someone else's looking at something else and then the it department looking at something else and I don't have the data fusion that is going to deliver to me a a single pane of glass which I can say oh I see that the street lights are are operating or day burners I have I had these other things but there's a lot other activity that's taking place how do you how do you utilize that data to invoke either different behaviors or salts for public safety issues or things of that nature across the board and then provide those insights to the vertically integrated organisations that need it right right it just it it makes a lot of sense well let me ask you this what one of the things that I've been hearing a lot about is this focus on regions rather than rather than city said talking about talking about smart regions it was one of the ideas that kept popping up at the symposium am so I I guess this is kind of a two part question one is why would we think about regions rather than just cities is questionable one and number two is if we do that it doesn't the data issue become that much more complex because then we're dealing with data from a lot of different municipalities or jurisdictions or what have you you know that that is a huge topic and and here's a let me give you an example one of the first cities that I worked it's Palo Alto we go through and and we help them in terms of using the data to provide visualizations for the traffic you know as a monitoring aspect of of the solution and we improve the traffic flow there but ah I go to the neighboring city mountain view right Sunnyvale or Santa Clara or down to San Jose I don't have that same experience and so it becomes very clear that that and I'm not saying that city by city is not is not good it's it's great every city needs to have had these initial it is and and and work being done but if I have a regional approach and we solve the challenges associated with procuring Senate and we solve the challenges with a collective vision and we solve the challenges of data utilization and what data is going to be used for what solutions now I get to have a an experienced going from city to city that is the same and that has to be part and parcel to The conversation of of improving cities overall
Electrical Considerations for Artificial Intelligence Solutions - With Robert Gendron
"It's clear that there's a revolution h-how artificial intelligence is done in neural networks works as opposed to the old school systems of the eighties and the nineties. It's clear that hardware is beginning to evolve and it's also quite clear that the way that we power these hardware systems this is going to have to change. GPA's and AI hardware tremendously power intensive power hungry and this week we speak with Robert Gendron who works at Vicor Corporation bikers based here Andover Massachusetts they make essentially power components and they're focused on powering AI systems we speak with Robert about why I intelligence systems are power hungry and we talk about why the way they are powered needs to be different than let's say traditional manufacturing equipment Robert but really dumbs down the ideas of of amps and volts and really break things down into pretty simple cook business leader friendly terminology about how the powering of these systems has to go we want to reduce energy costs and we want to be as efficient as we can whether needs to also be a revolution in the way that power these systems certainly an interesting different angle definitely plays into the theme of Ai it hardware Kasaka research is the sponsor of this episode.
