A Conversation With Britney and Caleb of Almond landscaping
"Caleb and brittany from almond landscaping. This is husband and wife team in. They just got done doing something that i think is one of those foundational kind of experiences on voting. They spent of. Was it a weaker a weekend. At a networking event and we're going to cover the importance of networking and mentoring. How are you guys doing. Thanks for having us good goodwill thanks for coming back on the air with us now. Can you just briefly. Explain to me what you guys were doing. My understanding is you. Went to a place called the hype house. What was that about it. It was an idea formulated a little while ago. But the the quick upfront of it is. It's the green industry. Hi house element was a gracious sponsor of the house and it was a collaborative event for a handful of influencers in the social media. Space in the green industry and a good chance for everybody to For a handful of I'd say well known Influencers come together create content network and You collaborate which is the theme of the day now from tiktok right. Which which credit. Paul jameson with With paul there because he came up with he kind of had the idea of these tiktok. Were doing these Like collaborative events or somewhat similar out on the west coast and he had floated the idea at one point a while ago of Doing a green industry version of it. Where a handful of people get together create content and do collaborative videos and podcasts and all sorts of stuff and And we're like well. Let's do it in the green industry. I reached out to to paul. Kinda push him on it and then it actually ended up happening mostly because of brittany on here in elizabeth fullerton. They kind of made. They're the ones that kind of made Made the gears made actually gears turn. I think so so now a lot of times when these guys get together to do these collaborations you guys. They'd benefit themselves right. I mean it's like oh you know i'm gonna borrow from this guy's audience get to see me. They i get but how does this feedback to help the industry as a whole. That's really the most important thing. Because if you're not one of the influencers that gets the benefit of of being there. What is the benefit to the audience What kind of content were you guys able to produce to help the guys guys that didn't get to be on the shortlist an invite to the event. Well it was in was i. I really consider myself Honored and privileged to be able to be involved in in the in the green issue hype house there and i would say what the main thing was. There was obviously a lot of You know collaboration between you know all the the influencers there and that was obviously beneficial for them but the audience one of the things. At least i can say for my audience. I was able to do things that i would normally do like through my instagram stories. And even our youtube channel and all that stuff is like. I went around with your sean spencer and brian fullerton a couple of days and britain a handful of people and we went and we would just go around. We're on anna. Maria island in florida for the week and we would just find local job sites and just go and tour the job sites and everybody would kinda report on it doing their own. Doing you know their own story. The way they do and bringing value to their audience that way just from a different location on different sites and mowing crews and just and so it was. It was a benefit i think to the audience of seeing you know some things in different regions Being reported by there. I say reported but really kinda was by their favorite Influencers wherever the right word is that. I know it was cool because like you were able to talk. Pavers on shawn spencer's channel right. And he doesn't normally provide that content his followers and jason krill who does fertilization and stuff. He was able to talk to people about that vice versa. Right jason creoles able we talked about fertilizing and stuff. I got on my channel so we took a tour around the neighborhood and just looked at zoysia grass bermuda grass and other stuff. I don't have in ohio. And i got a lot of questions for ten. How you care for it and so it was. It was a neat A conglomeration of information. I think the other thing we did is every night. We went live on a different person's channel and we made it to where people could ask questions And we filtered people in and out of the out of the spotlight so people could literally ask any question they wanted to any of the people and we were talking everything from favorite mowers too. You know how to buy or sell a business to how to grow or how best market and so really an event where you could get to you know for example. On like sean spencer shallower brian photons channel. You know we live on there. But they would see sean on there and they would ask sean about how they run a certain piece of equipment or how what their thoughts were on the best marketing practices or i would be on. Brian's channel or appeals and they would ask them paver heart scape related questions some stuff they may not normally have access to You know that kind of thing. So i think it was a really cool opportunity for for for the audience to to to get some in different information across a wide array of genres. Let's say
Curtis Saunders and his 1914 Model T
"This is Robert loss of welcome to another episode of cars that matter today we're joined by Dr Curtis Saunders, Mechanical Engineer Researcher at Johns Hopkins University Tower Things in Baltimore today, Curtis agreed Robert. It's a beautiful sunny day here in Curtis is here because he's the owner of a nineteen fourteen Ford model t now I guess I could make all kinds of jokes curtis about how you really need a PhD in mechanical engineering to work on one of these. But I'm sure it doesn't hurt. I we're going to dig into the history of the Ford model teachers to understand a little bit better. Why was such important automobile? The Ford model t is often named the car the century. Obviously, it's an important car. Why is it important to you? I should say while I'm a mechanical engineer I've always loved history. I'm always been a student of history and history has always been a passion of mine. So the model t important to to me. One of the reasons is just the impact it had on American history and just the general in addition just to manufacturing in general the manufacturing methods behind the model. t some of the things that Henry Ford merely pioneered with the car I was just really fast anyhow had in areas as well as the impact car itself had in American culture from what I understand. They made about fifteen million and they had quite a lifespan and first one came. Out in Nineteen Oh eight is that right? Yes. That is correct Kinda wrap things up by one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven when by that time was almost as much of an antique as it is today it's amazing how long the car ran and even through its cycle while the appeared. So the car changed a lot of the underlying the chemical structure while had some changes remain basically the same, the same four cylinder engine, the chew speed transmission. The bones are really did run twenty years I remember years and years ago in my former life I worked with the operating engineers, UCLA. What do we have these emergency generator rooms now ucla campus was built back in the nineteen twenties and we actually had an emergency generator that was still powered by a Model T. engine this back in the eighties imagine that that old engine was deemed reliable enough and competent enough to be working all those decades later. Really Testament to the Durance of that particular design you talk about Henry, Ford and how the model t was really the first mass produced car but I almost get the feeling. Henry could have been making washing machines or vacuum cleaners in a lot of ways the model t was sort of a test bed for the whole production line process actually rates moving assembly line process was not unique to model ts and applied to so many different types of products from airplanes, trains, cars, like you said, also goods washing machines TV's. Of that type of process, we take it for granted now, but someone had to think of it I in there had to be a pioneer that type of industry that really started this whole thing not only introducing a whole new way of making things it was done. So efficiently and relatively inexpensively that I gave any American with a halfway decent paying job the opportunity to own a car or it's eight a here's rolling car off the assembly. Line every ninety seconds from what I understand though maybe you can correct me if I'm wrong the model t was such a grand vision of Henry Ford's that he actually set up manufacturing facilities or plants all around the country, and even in other comments, he truly believed it was the car for the masses I. Don't think he really viewed it as just something for a specific region or even a specific country her specific time thought he'd really. distill down essential components vehicle and that that's what anyone in the world would what I guess. There was more than just one model T. everything from pickup trucks to delivery vans they made a whole bunch of them didn't they? Absolutely, there is various types of cars from to Cedars. Cedars even enclosed cars and open cars later and the whole line of trucks. You can even buy a model t rolling chassis and build your own body for it. If you didn't like what Fort is offering, you could just build your own. You're not even limited cars like you said, the power plant could by the Ford engine, the Ford, power plant and just apple sorts of other applications that would make a nice Margarita blender wouldn't it just about the right amount of horsepower to get that is just just right. Everybody knows what one looks like but I suspect most people don't really understand what it takes to. Make one move got a little engine. What is like three liter inline four or something like that it's a little inline four and it has a two speed transmission. What's the horsepower output on that engine? Would you figure it was rated at twenty two and a half horsepower? Wow. Okay. There's a lot of lawnmowers. Today might a riding mower hardware store that has more horsepower than this little novelty

That's true. And for people who are because a lot of people are complaining. They don't see that. In the Beta developers have to flag an APP saying it's a candidate for browser and for email and apple has to approve it because they don't want some company to make scam rouser that redirects their Amazon affiliate links or shows you a bunch of tracker ads so like if chrome says we're a browser, apple, said yes, you are, but if like, the browser xrays, ed or something comes up and says please now, sorry, do you WanNa?

Perfect time to right Andy NOCCO. You're a week. Unfortunately Colorado passed away today at Oh, not unexpected. But still very very sad. my where you start. Where do you begin to talk about how wonderful he was? I'm just GONNA use my pick of the week to recommend. I was an avid collector of his memoirs. He started writing his memoirs in his eighties and his audio books of these memoirs are amazing. Because he did, he did start off life as As a performer quickly became a writer performer, but you can see how much how often over the previous decades he had told each of these stories, and how he had honed each of these stories about his life, and his his making making his way through to determine straight is honed each story to raise precision an ounce of fat on it and if I look at my greatest hits and my and my audible library. Starting with my anecdotal life, it as are often just Carl Reiner Colorado stories so. As long as we did, I mean he was even doing a quarantine podcast dispatches from quarantine. And he had a great twitter account, and he just never ever ever stopped. That is so aspirational beat to be fortunate enough to have your health and your wits about you and your nineties, but also to not have lost your passion and the joy you you you do take in the career that you so luckily found for yourself when you're eighteen nineteen twenty years old. That is such a blessing it. Well, at least the two thousand year, old man is still alive, so. We can't we will I will go home tonight and watch all of me, so yes, yes, yeah, all right. That's a sad way to go, but yes I'm glad you mentioned that I hadn't heard. I'm big big big Fan of courses, Son Rob, Reiner also very successful director and actor and comedian. Carl Reiner at the age of Ninety Eight Ninety, eight, eight Mel Brooks about five years behind him. And still sharp, Still Justice Sharp, yeah! Rene your pick of the week. Telling me going after Antioch in the Best of Times is really difficult to go with something so self serving as I am doing after he has been ahead on their. Channel? So I got a chance to sit down and talk to. People from Apple. Cecilia, who is part of product, marketing and Katie? who was actually at the keynote? She was one doing the privacy demonstration, and she manages user privacy at Apple and we spoke for about half an hour on the. user interface. Things like messages and maps, and then we spoke for about another fifteen minutes about privacy, and how apple views privacy and sort of the way in which they're continuously. Driving this giant privacy machine there containing and it, it was absolutely delightful. Great way for me to end WDC just some casual chat about the stuff that I I was on this complete espresso in WDC high. So I'm really not even sure what I said. But they were eloquent, informative and she got Craig figured Federico Seat on the ring because I. I see the rainbow outside her window. Yeah, yeah, that's cool. That's really marcus.

"That might be an had no basil. That might be pretty. You know so. It's I would want my I need final cut and so. Yeah Yeah They barely support the three D. APP. She uses on Intel yes. Yes, yes, that was a good tweet. They I mean if if I, if one of the first I apple silicon based MACs that apple releases this fall where Amac mini, which is the undisputable? The desktop computer that I want in my office when I make upgrades, I would almost certainly by it. I would not mind being eating the first generation of dog food partly because I'm retrieved by what An. An arm processor is going to be giving me two years from now, and I can't afford to buy to to fifteen hundred dollar desktops in two years just out of curiosity on a notebook when it comes to a notebook, I'm still sort of like hedging my bets I. Don't know what I want right now but that's I would not hesitate to buy an arm based Mac mini of one released I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA. Buy an Mac because MAC is just. Not Going to I'm still skeptic. I'm still. The the macbook pro is still not necessarily what I want. It doesn't instill joy in me immediately as as conduct. RECON dewitt might say and so I'm still trying to figure out if that's what I'm still even trying to figure out. If a two thousand dollar laptop is still even relevant to how I use computers in two thousand and twenty one as opposed to the mid two thousands, but the but I'm all I'm trying to communicate here is that I. Don't think anybody is going to be host if they buy an Intel based Mac this year. You. You always have to balance My my my advice to people is always the same that. Don't consider hardware upgrade until you have firm idea of how it's going to either solve a problem for you or create opportunity for you but the other thing is that. If you need a computer today, think about everything. You're going to lose on the next year by waiting until next year for a machine that might never actually come or might be irrelevant. Irrelevant to your knees like imagine if I were holding off on a really really bad old MAC book for two years ago. I know there's a there's a major redesign of the macbook macbook pro coming so by the way here it is, and now it has a keyboard. You can't possibly us, so you're kind of an idiot for waiting two years when you could have been using the last generation of good for you. Yeah and certainly I think we've all converged on this. We talked about it on Sunday on twitter. As well that if you need a Mac, there's no reason not to buy a MAC right now. There's no reason to delay. And if you don't then, it might be worth waiting I just I. Don't remember, but my sense is those g. four's felt pretty old, pretty quick, not because they world, but just because you wanted the new Intel Mac. But into the until it was providing such well, there's a tweet Steve Staunton. Smith that he put up yesterday where he said the developer transition kit, which is a two year old IPAD ship runs x eighty six sixty four code in emulation, fasten the surface pro x runs it natively. Doing and that get, this is like the worst that we will ever see. Mac Os running on apple silicon. Apple's done year over year over year improvements this at one hundred times in ten years. Improvement so it and until it's still doing so badly. That is hard to imagine within two three years. They'll have a significant lead, not not maybe not in terms of what Zeon can do, but in terms of power per what and what apple can do in the people complain about map books all the time hot they are. Nobody complains about how hot it is, and it's fast so there there are certain aspects that are highly appealing about what this combination is going to bring, yeah. And the benchmarks are out and I. DON'T WANNA report on them because they're out illegally. Apple was very clear. If you've got one of the developer kits, you're not to benchmark, but they do leak out because people forget that. If if you keep bench and it's going to be posted on the site unless you essay otherwise and you know it's not the it's not as super fast, but it's, but it's pretty impressive. The two year old architecture could run as well as it has, and almost everyone has been running in emulation. They've been downloading. Geek bench from the MAC APP store, which is the Intel version running it through Rosetta real numbers you're seeing is the emulated. Yeah, that's not bad. On Patch. So no I'M I. I mean honestly if my real advice, would you probably don't need a computer? Just stop buying computers. That's your mistake early. Do. You don't need a computer but I. don't need no stinking computer. Apple, design there are other stories we'll go to those real quickly before get your picks of the week Apple. Design Award winners came out and yesterday or today I. Think and Dark Room. Which is a beautiful photo editor? It's you know actually darkroom. An IPAD to me is why I don't need Photoshop Light Room. It's just gorgeous from Bergen. It's so. I haven't played. This game loom with three Os from IRS studio. It's an animation playground. With music creation tools. We'll be doing this on IOS today next week. We're going to do all of the. Demo and play with all of the award. Winners shaper three. D. which is a cat APP for the IPAD wow.

"Well. We gotta do that for Mac Os ten. It's over. It's eleven. They took it to eleven. This if you're going to do it, this is the time yeah. Yeah, this is this is so significant that it really is almost like a relaunch of the platform. If anything I think that they were a little bit conservative because if they're if they're going to be this disruptive and I mean that in the in the neutral sense of the word they may as well go for broke but I'm so glad that they have smeared all of these changes, because that one of the reasons why I was for the for the past few years less last year that I've been worried about the future. Future of the Mac was that I got the Mac. Finder in the you by looks so frumpy. Y- looks at. It looks like the first ten minutes of that movie. Where like the male with female nerd is clearly, the the costume department said okay now remember and a half half hour into the movie they're going to. They're going to take all these elocution lessons. They're going to get a whole new wardrobe or they're gonNA find out that there are prince, so we gotta make sure they look really really dumpy at the very beginning at. Mac Os look like compared to every other operating system that I've seen yeah, so I'm glad so that's. If nothing else apple, really really achieve the the the at achieved being able to convince people that no, we're not just hanging onto the MAC as a development platform for IOS and watch Os. We really do believe that they've been saying it all along but I. I'm sure that I've said this time and time again on the show, but looking for is give me a sign. Don't just keep telling me actually show me proof that you intend to keep keeps up and known as a Macintosh for at least the next five years. Do we have any reason to believe Ming Chico? Even saying before, we just say that I do want sneak in and just let a little bit of the air out of the tires of the new messages and facetime APP yes icons just a little because they are so puffy, compared to everything else. Do, so you need them oldest all the developer preview. Yes, so I haven't. And I'm guessing Andy, hasn't I have I? Have rather you have so what you think of it? start with what do you do you is it is it gets? Inflated. No I really like overall I. really really like it is refreshed. That is lighter it's it's like the there's better afford us. Because everything is a little bit more space, it can breathe I. Think the completely transparent menu bar is a little bit bitsy. It lacks the cohesiveness of an actual bar, but you can hide it now, which is great and I think some of the new icons are fine, but I think overall the watch gets to have around icons and Apple TV guests to have rounded rectangle icons. ICONS AND IOS. Has Those Super Lips icons and I think it's a disservice to the MAC to let them lose their own distinction that they've had for years, and that could be like arbitrary shapes or angled rector or something that let's back its on identity, and just make them the same world Super Lips. Is that are on iphone? So I think all of the icons are bad I. Think I think summer flatter and some are puffier. They should normalize all of that, but in general, I think the. Switching the icons to be exactly like Mac or sorry shaped like iphone and IPAD APPS as a service to the yeah. I I I I'm not a design guy so i. don't I don't have any strong feelings, one way or the other. It definitely looks. A little it is interesting like you can choose your wallpaper to be that one, which is just like irs, but they also have traditional Mac, like picture of what they do. have big picture of big Sur that you can use instead you get the and both of them are working light and dark mode. Oh, that's interesting twos year allegiances, are you Hashtag team iphone, background, or Ash Mac that, because the iphone background is the one we've all seen abstract layers of color to sort of simulate big. Sur The water, the mountains the. Ocean, but the beauty the power the beauty those I gotta say those bars are big. Those icon bars are Chai Jain Norma's. Trying to touch them right now, yeah. Yeah I absolutely accept that people are like Rene said that people are reading into these design changes both an Iowa macro was the way they want. It really does look like they're making this much more touch. Friendly whether that's whether that's to have simply to have visual consistency with Iowa's, or whether that really is the idea of we're. GonNa need that the title bars of these windows to be grabble by a fingertip as opposed to a mouse or attract that. I see a lot of error around there. I see a lot of transparency around there that I'm still trying to get used to i. see them trying to. Minimize the visual impact of the menu bar as ift. Part of that message is to say, don't look for features up there. You're supposed to look for features within within content windows. I like it I. I did find it more off-putting after I finish my first day with it than I did this morning when I was messing around with it. it re I really think that the I'm trying to figure out if using safari is going to be the biggest, tell to what apple wants a a MAC APP to look like, and if so I'm kind of hoping that apple dials it back. A little bit been a long time on Safari. Yeah. It just feels like. Remember the difference between. Iowa's seven and let's say Iowa's nine when when they absolutely decided that. Okay, it's time to get rid of the original I iphone interface and start updating a little bit. It was dark. It was. It was like a like salt flat where there is. It exactly the no, let's get all the colors like those. Let's make all of the texts really really skinny. Let's not give you any sort of indication of One thing on this screen is more important than something other that something's is trying to get your attention and but they saw you saw them dial back that back over the next couple of years. I think that we're going to I. Hope that naturally we're going to see a certain once wants lenses off off the off the ranch and into the hands of. Not Real people yet, but closer one step closer to real people in the form of developers who can give lots of feedback It's I'm I'm keen to see how people react to it when the public Beta hits very very soon because if if it doesn't feel like a Mac you've you've Kinda?.

"That becomes casual and free. Yeah. What else did you see that you like? Fill me and. Save Time. One of the one of the biggest things was just. There's one I think there's only one area in which apple is objectively failing. They are not doing the job and has reached crisis point, and it is wrong. They aren't moving making visible steps to fix it, and that's the APP review process. Making it so so paik and so nope, we'd made this decision now. You're powerless to change it. the they made some announcements that are basically saying that number one. If we have a problem with your APP, we will still allow you to do bug fixes, so we're not gonna say that security problem. A security problem has to stick because we don't. Don't like the way that you're doing it using a controller and number two. They're giving the they at least giving lip service to saying that Now we're giving you more opportunities to debate. Why we why we made this Y. Your apps not be affected by this change and also not only talk it. It's almost like looking at the a change. Change to the constitution, saying that not only that, but you could also argue that this rule itself is bogus, and you need to change it and the idea that they're. They're even putting that into like a public. A public statement during ww see shows that they are aware that they've been. They've been hugely dropping the ball on this and that they need to. To make changes, I thought that that was one of the biggest pieces of news from ww. DC because that's that is the thing that whether developers complaining in public or complaining and private when I'm talking to friends of mine. That is the one thing that makes my jaw drop every single time that says wow, you make one of the most important There for people that can, T can say this. You're making one of the most important and popular APPs on the Mac Platform and apple is just screwing you around, and you're giving. You're being given no no indication that they're even thinking about this carefully that they're just simply a low level person. They saw like Red Light. Come up ought panels. They press the. Button and that's and that you can't do anything about it, and it's always shock me every single time. I am so glad to see that. At least we'll see if this actually actually pays off but I'm so glad to see that apple is. As regressing, they should probably not be screwing for developers quite. Fully as they have been in the have a chance to see it, but I think it was my changes to the people said were positive coming out of double WBZ. What's the purchase? IEP Out purchases people seem to I didn't have a chance to follow up on it, but some people seem happy with some of the changes that was. Precipitated by the fight with base camp and D. H. H over. Hey, or is it just? Exacerbated by like I think I. Think a lot of things. We've had enough. Also we're stuck at home for months. The entire world insane and like an APP. An APP review letter is just too much at this point. That's IT I. Think. That's true. I think there's so many things in our society that have been bad for so long and I'm not making any false equivalents about where we're always. Happy! It's done every last. We don't want our Google TV raising his prices. I thought twitter explode this morning. We've just had enough as a society. We were saying this floor. No further you will, you will not make us pay anymore. My kid is playing taking clarinet lessons Second House all day, I'm going to be mad at somebody and Apple. It's going to be you.

Agree can only be a matter of time. You're happy about sleep. Though right Mike is so high about that yeah! I I heard. Some people are complaining I myself included initially. That doesn't do as much as other sleep APPs like other sleep APPs. We'll show you a light sleep. Heavy sleep, rem sleep, but when I asked about it, they said like they have no found that they have no understanding how they're getting those numbers. They don't WanNa. Put up on anything that doesn't. because. They know they'll get all sorts like everything will be scrutinized by every scientists in the world, so they want to make sure that if they do ever offer that, it's like those numbers are provable using his scientific models today.

That's not just cute. It's not just the the ultimate caveman skew morphism. This is making things that are. In things that you you can infer how it works that you're wired up to simply understand that this is what you're meant to do. As opposed to learning a clever new interface, so this is why this sort of stuff could be a quite transformative, so you're going to point earlier Leo Andy's point now. The reality kid has also added video as texture so you can do things like place a screen on the wall and watch TV in a are, but also mapped the screen to like a an object when have an animated face or map it to? To water like a river and have an animated Texter, so it just ramping up realism that you can deliver and also the the opportunistic interfaces we all see in the movies right like the screen just appears in front of him, and he taps it and the it's really the gestures that are doing the work, but as a human we relate to whatever the physical object is in front of us, so if you're just mapping video of an interface and reacting to what we're moving our hands on, just makes that experience nicer, and that's again shipping in Iowa's. As I. Run this Augmented Reality Vase all over this chair. Howard to be. So Is Apparently doing ray casting I don't see any lighting effects, but at least it knows what carries. She was a kid. Yeah, there, you go now. To the to the surface of that just just like you're, you're running that around the area. That's pretty and the and the objects moving This means I would guess that light are in every future apple device. Yeah! Yeah, yeah I mean. It's privacy respecting to which in ways that regular cameras have been problematic in past, which is a nice benefit for apple, because yeah, lighter and radar are really important technologies. Because you can't, it's. It's very clever to say. Hey, get this this cameras. This device is a cameras taking pictures sixty frames per second. As soon as people say camera taking pictures. They don't want any part of it particularly. If you're in the room that, but when you say well, no, it's actually radar. So, it's not actually seeing anything. It's only taking really really high depth like distance measurements, unless not unless stop mentioned that if it's sufficiently sufficient technology that's actually mapping. Everybody's faces as they go win, so they're getting much much more information than the pictures, but but you know what I mean. Here's the face mapping Demo, that you were talking about, and this is more than meam. Oggi's right this you could, you could map it onto. make What is that snapchat filters? Yeah, wow, wow, that's exciting. I must say is a breakthrough technology. I. Think I think it's more. It's more one of the many things that are impressive for this are when it becomes stuff like A A. A when it becomes like a plug in for movie, not not even final cut, but just I want to make a movie, but it's only me and my two friends, and neither of them are dogs, ORCs and I really I really need a dog in the scene. Let's just make. Let's do motion like on the fly motion, Kenmore Co, that this character right? That's the because I keep coming back to how wonderful how incredible it is that you have all these youtube creators that are well in their twenty s or in their teens who grew up with non linear editing and a high definition camera. On their phones, and just like I learned how to write because I had access to word processors from from basically the first time I tried to use the I tried to learn how to write which met which made me which which gave me certain advantages that other generations didn't have once. We get into this sort of thing where now the generation that the General Z. Double Zero whatever they're calling it these days this generation.

That's exactly what they didn't sixteen gigs Aram and ports. But by the way I think that was too hard for them to do so it's conceivable team is really good. It's conceivable that they could have a a very smooth gradient from the. Start the watch all the way up to the MAC pro, there could be a very set of family of SOC's. People because some people issue you mess. OC means no discrete graphics, even at the highest, and that's the beauty of it. That's one of the reasons that's one of the great benefits they're going to get. It explains why they thumbed their nose at Invidia for so long they pushed metal so hard. They struggled along with his Vega crap. Because they knew we're going to be doing GPA US and you know we talked a little bit about Gamers gamers all. They're never going to be interested in apple silicon, but wait wait these game companies and the gamers see what kind of GPS apple can put together during Tony Frame per second fortnight. Yeah, I see no reason why Apple. To assume that apple doesn't have equally amazing GP capable and also imagine a like. They've put so much money into not just the Mac pro, but the concept of the new Mac pro and the ability to for example if you have Apple Mac and you do a lot of final cut pro work and you're like I'm gonNA, add. Accelerator to it, but if you do something else, maybe there's like a dedicated math, accelerator or audio engine, accelerator and sort lose the concept of what a gp you is, you bring home your your superlight, twelve inch, macbook arm, and you sorry I can't say arm anymore. Apple Silicon, and then you plug that into whatever the DOK thing is, and suddenly you're driving eight. You know nine K. displays. Its is ludicrous. What what you can do when you start controlling it onto looking down, yeah. It's great and again. It's happening at exactly the wrong time because species are dead so I wish I wish they'd done this ten years ago. They'll have a good. They have good ten years before This really hits, but I I honestly think that we're gonNA live in a different world with eating well, it's there. There's the other classical computing known as boring computers. There's there's a reason why boring fleet style cars sell. People Boring stuff. They don't care back. That's not what apple makes they make the. Oh, no, they don't. Four is understood. I thought you're talking about like windows windows tile. Honestly think windows even has much Let many legs too I. Think Honestly That's why such as you said. That's why such runs Microsoft it's. It's going to have tool to me. Glasses absolutely at least for a while though it's hard to make. But I can develop right now. on vs code running on a server on a clay. You could do plenty of developed you don't. There's no. What's changed? Is it used to be? Somebody would sit down at their computer. That this is it and everything would be there, but now we can see. We have many computers many places that we would want access to that stuff. It doesn't really make sense for. Anything to be located in one spot I. You can run busy. Calcutta cloud LaPorte. We have we have sinking, but thinking everybody tries sinking. It's kind of you know that dropbox kind of that's not. That's not the future the future is. A single source of truth successful from all your devices. And there's probably was doing much computing. You're absolutely right and that that's why Microsoft is as invested so heavily in virtualization to make the hardware irrelevant, but to make sure that their software remains completely relevant. When you're when you've got a company that had needs five hundred five thousand seats, and you're Yukon to them saying that here, but by by our servers instead or better yet by access to our cloud, our cloud, a power instead we can add you can add ten thousand seat says whenever you want, and plus you won't have. You won't have uses were able. Able to screw anything up beyond the ability of a remote administrator to put things right again, so yeah, it's it it kind of it also makes me wonder I. Don't think I saw a lot. I don't think I saw any news about macrumors ization not that this is a big deal for apple. They've got every other. They've they've got a roadmap and. That's that's nothing more than than a detour off the main road map, but it would be interesting if apple's simply said that be, we want the we want the Mac of an ability and a mixed os or mixed MIS mixed desktop sort of shop, and if that means that we will be able to we will allow people to at least by seats by virtualization licenses for Mac Os then, so be it. That would be very very interesting to me. Was this is before wbz apple rolled out a bunch of education updates, so they typically get a bunch of stuff out of the way and one of them that I thought was really interesting was google like. They previously had multi user for IPAD for schools, and it turned out that some like some people didn't even want that, so they have a new ability. Where you just pick up an IPAD, you do whatever you want to do, and then it just blows your session away. The next person picks up and it's a whole new clean environment for them, which again other systems have been. been doing for years, but that's literally. You're thin client there. You have an IPAD. That's very capable. That can push pixels around like nobody's business, but it's completely ephemeral from one student to the next. Yeah, well, that's what happens right. As that's clearly future. I know nobody. Everybody's going kicking and screaming. Saying, but that's what we got away with with away from with one person. Isn't ambien computing. Jarvis Friday. No you don't care where the Corey I'm asking you just do it for me, right? That's what you want an apple. Still Carson saying well apple could sell secure boxes. Yeah, but they don't need to be a computer. Apple could have a very good busy, shouldn't they? Shouldn't be apple probably will have a very good business. I! I'd say in twenty. Thirty selling beautiful. Gleaming chrome secure enclave boxes that you put in your foyer. Or you look at the three things that Tim Cook is actually willing to talk about which probably means that the most important things that he thinks that people need to hear about Apple. It's a are in Vr. It's ambient computing and it's Automation and all of those things are what we talk about. We talk about the future of computing. It's things doing stuff for us at our command and popping up things for interact with win, and if we need them, yeah. it's it's very telling that one of the what I think is one of the best technology that apple introduced in the past ten years. back to my Mac is kind of fell by the wayside, certainly not a priority It's mostly been rolled into features that are kind of invisible in other parts of the experience when you get to the idea of at. At does it doesn't matter where you are in the world or what device you're using? We are going to do all the back end stuff to make sure that you can access your files back home or back in the office if you want to, we will make sure that we can find that connection if you want to. run a run a mirror desktop. Device using right here and right now that was so such super powerful stuff, and I used it all the time. Admittedly I used it on a hack and Tosh del Norte, but still I. It's it points out that apple at some point had that discussion internally and decided that we would much rather take the feature..

Also here good to see you Andy! Elo We thought we had Alex. he bailed at the last minute. That's okay. Cause you to get to make it comic book, Central. Guess whether Alex is at an undisclosed location maybe right where Johnny Saruji was last. We allowed. Here now, but okay okay. So? Which one of you wasn't here last week. I forgot. I I was I was hearing. Alex wasn't here so okay. Good all right. I Know Lori was and lorries taken all of this on Sunday. She was on twitter, which was great. That was a great show. Yeah, well, you liked it because it was all apple I heard from a few people. I would have liked it regardless because I like those people yeah and. I did hear from Dan Patterson. Who Said thank God I didn't want to hear any Cova News and I didn't hear any covert news. It was really all about the candy, store. Or the fruit company depending on your. Week same thing with android. I mean just happens a couple times a year. That's exactly what Jason Snell said twice a year. It's all apple time and there's actually you know. I didn't WanNa Kinda still thunder from this show, either but kind of lay. There's a lot to talk about I decided today. To play devil's advocate. Because I ca I. Keep trying. I tried last week with you. Guys at tried Sunday to say okay, but what's the negative on this transition to apple silicon? And play the devil then if you're in the advocate, be the advocate. You'd be okay. We'll on my left shoulder the devil, no, that's Andy on the right shoulder so I have negative street as excited as I am about apple silicon I, do wonder. If. We're. Haven't we been in a post era for a while now, and is it really? Does it really matter I think ultimately I wonder. Does it really matter what chip you're on what even what operating system you're on because I see a world increasingly that operates off data and programs in the cloud on clients that can range from a game boy. To invest tops in client and. You know for instance and I've been saying this about windows for a long time. The next time a business buys a computer probably shouldn't buy a windows ten computer. They should just buy something. They connect to Windows ten in the cloud and run their APPs up there I i. it was a huge benefits to that maintenance operations. Security on and on and on the only negative, the only downside is. Local data if you're living in the cloud and the cloud goes away, then you. You kind of have some problem. Just explain why in Adela is CEO Microsoft now Nazi bomber. Exactly and and you know. We talked a lot on Wednesday windows weekly about apple's announcement because. And completely, coincidentally, Microsoft's closed all of its stores forever. Makes her end mixer and I think it's a Microsoft is increasingly focused on exactly the scenario I just talked about they. Windows is nice offices. Not Cut McNealy east. You know it's always been. It's always coming, but never quite arriving Scott McNealy would talk about the thin and Larry, Ellison we talk about the thin clouds, and the early founders of Google and we're slowly getting to the point where the actual cloud works enough to make it a non horrible experience locally. Yeah, and also with Microsoft you see them. It was it was it was that eight year period in which they decided? They didn't know what they wanted to be or they didn't. They didn't want to admit that they actually like wearing ties. You know you you know that. It happens to like so many people somebody men and women were. It's like wow. I'M GONNA. Buy this rock and roll. T shirts like which I don't wear anymore because I feel like I. Don I just don't want to wear them anymore, so you saw Microsoft feel as though Oh i I'm I'm Gonna I'm GonNA develop a smartwatch and I'm going to develop like a consumer. Have! A special version of windows that works on an ipad sort of thing, and it took them a while to realize that their reasons why they have the market share that they have, and it's because they don't know how to be Apple. They know, but they're no. They really know how to be Microsoft Yeah, so the mattress store was always very very odd sort of choice for them to make because it was. It was such a brilliant choice for apple. Apple because they are, they are a place. Where if you're in a mall, you'll by the sort of stuff that people in malls like to buy in addition to being a service center, but for Microsoft it was like, we really want one of those two, please. Can we have a riding MOWER I? Know that we don't I know that. The neighbor has a big law and we have a small one, but I really WANNA riding mower. It's really long. Hours. That's really true. Think it's differentiated, though is that. If you are something and I totally believe you have the same vision of mobile endpoint. We're all GONNA. Have Little Marbles or mother box in our pockets that authenticate us you know with biometrics connect to the cloud, and recreate our computing environment in a are or opportunistically with whatever hunk of glass we happen to be near with any sort of input method. That's available but I think there. There is going to be at least you know. short-term decade long divide where some people don't care at all. Where all of the operations on that data are completed. They're just as happy for Google or Microsoft to do it on. The cloud is the are for it to happen anywhere, and there'll be some percentage of people that want that's. That's still want control over that data and want. The, more private data acted on locally and having cutting silicon in iphones and ipads and Apple. Whatever you know, the next generation of products will be a competitive advantage for them, because be able to I actually was thinking about that last night. I thought you could build I kind of had this. Notion of it was a FI story. Almost shouldn't everybody every home. Every person have secure enclave. That's stores everything they do, and that is somehow online doesn't matter where it's hosted, but some could be in your closet, but somehow online and accessible with all of these edge devices that we are eventually going to be using because that's clearly what's happening. You just described it with a watch and glasses and not devices. We want to be able to access our data everywhere, but we want to secure. Private enclave and it even goes along with his vision that timber. Bernie's Lee and others have expressed. To that maybe we should have control of our data and then sell it or lease it or allow somebody. They always do that as in euro secure enclave. But. That doesn't seem like much of a role. Here's my problem. Apple just announced the newest Chinese thing I've ever seen I love it. It's the it's the equivalent of Princess Madala starship. You know with Apple Silica by Alex Lindsay Yeah. It's beautiful I want it, but they made this thing in Eero. When you know, we don't really need starship anymore because we got teleportation, you know. quite though I still being spent about the galaxy. I think that I think you. You hit on the head earlier that it used to be that we would think think of computing in terms of mobile and mobile and desktop or mobile and not mobile. Let's say so meeting that the things that are designed to be carried in your pocket more on your risk or a tablet. That's so easy to carry around you carry it even if you don't need it. Versus a something runs a desktop operating system be at a really really slim notebook, or a really really powerful desktop now, however, in the in twenty, twenty and twenty going forward. There's the third category which is I. Don't care. You know where and those are the people for, and that's why I think that apple put so much not only so much development, but so much focus on in the in the.

I hid something under the grant and it for sitting up twisted it all over it anyway. will it was. What's The wild about? It is when I pulled the the motor for the first time it cranked right up and I took off with it so then I went down to. Lowes my God a new blade. Put the new blade on and not go to pull and it would fire off for a second and then fire off for a second and then the so. I changed all gas out that well. Maybe it's just old gas because it's about three months since I use it fire off on the first time before I've been to blade. I'll tell him back in the maybe it was bad gas so I changed all the gas out in but still when I pull it. It'll shrink for half a second and then it'll die what's going on. Were you able to hear that Banja put it together so it hit something he he bought a new blade right late on since and somehow somehow putting this new blade related somehow to the engine. Not Staying on anymore. Yeah why missing. I didn't catch. It was like a riding mower or a push more is a push mower. Andrew Push more. Okay well I'm guessing it's something do you feel free. Put that new blade. You would have had you Chris the lure on its side. And so there's probably some water trapped in your banker somewhere in a slashing it back and forth and that New Blade. I scared you made made its way down into the carburetor now I would take the bowl of the carbon off I would completely drain it. I would check the jets and the bottom of the cart. Clean them out and put it back together because it really does sound like the field problems at the time I think that's I would almost guarantee it if you really just just drain the three. The ball gets. Make sure there's no water in there and give it another shot and if you've got any either you can you know spray ether in it as you are cranking it and if you can keep the ether spraying in it and it will continue to run until you turn the ether off. No it's all related but I can get to you okay Andrew. Yeah Like I guess being here earlier but yeah I did that. Replace all the gas tax and I use either. Try to keep it going. I'm wondering It is all new gas. And that's not the issue could there be is if the blade isn't an original blade. It's an aftermarket. Delay could be out of balance would be an out of balance when that shaft would that might let it. Continue to run well you. It was out of balance be very noticeable when he would crank it. It would like WanNa feel like it was breaking your wrist. Almost it would be so much have noticed a little more vibration than before bent the blade and black. I'll have you did you check your Your your crankshaft may be. Yeah and if the if the crankshaft slightly bent well that were venture engine from continuing to run. My experience is slightly. Wounded will continue You may get a week and it. May you know shake big time but it will still running even with the bank crankshaft now if it was really really. I've seen them not running but I mean he was really really not his. That's still still i. I didn't hear the answer when you're straying Easter in it and and cranking it had tried sprang.

Tips on replacing a toilet and floor tiles
"We got an email in here already this morning and it has something to do with what you just did. Which is replacing toilet now. Check this out Donald says I'm redoing bathroom and changing the floor tile and the commode among other things. Do I have to change the tile before put the new commode in or can the commode be mounted on the sub floor and then tiled up to the base. I'm doing this myself and was going to remove the TUB and tile a shower in that space accusing remove the TUB and tile in shower in that space and wanted to do all at the same time so is a the commode do you put that on the sub floor or on the tile that you've already laid down guys you're you're you're definitely quote commode on the new talk on new tile. That's right so you use that base. That toilets be tricky. Consider that consider that toilet dean part of your trims main. You know you'll you'll put all your trims on at the very last year shower and tub trims all that stuff goes in very last okay. Okay sue the tile is already there and you put the tub down on top of that you know you'll put your commode you're you you. You need to put your tub in on what we would call. I'm sorry I'm in the commode down on top. Okay all right well that answers that one thing that you may run into if this is an older home a lot of them had what we called a mud base for the pro the tile and when you when you get all that APP you get down to sub floor. You're flaying join your rough. Is You know it could be an inch or so too tall so which you have to do there. You have to cut the flange off. Put a new engine at the right elevation for the new tile. And what he's talking about with the Flange folks that's the big hole that comes up from the ground and then the whole comes up to a thing that actually you mount the toilet to like got holes in it so you can bolt it.

"mower" Discussed on News 96.5 WDBO
"To be the it was the lawn mower sound that's what I was yeah that's what I was looking to pocket try a little bit lazy I can and if you're gonna play Joe now and see what happens you don't get it right what in the country I think she would like it let's see I could do it who are you talking about the lawn mower that your doctor the by both either one hello boy a lot of forces within also gave a rousing endorsement of Joe Biden today following well what do I do think if you can become a citizen because citizens will be able to be citizens yeah I guess yeah this was during his live stream for virtual town hall with with Bernie Sanders what he's talking about immigration reform except he says under he on his watch you know he's gonna have a pathway to citizenship citizens but strong finally cheap Christian grey's reformers will put millions of citizens on a pathway to citizenship so many for choosing joy to be my boyfriend since I haven't been Sir Ali gosh dang it some don't want to pile on but I you're a cop you pull somebody over your suspected drunk driver yeah and he says we just sit there like okay you're right man oh man was was to be here and go I don't wish bad on the guy you know what do you.
"On today's show. I'm talking to Michael British fine photographer. Best known for his images of black and white landscapes. His work has been displayed. All over the world he has permanent exhibitions in the Museum of Decorative Arts in the Victorian Albert Museum in London National Gallery of art in Washington. Dc and in the Bibliotheque in Paris. Let's dive straight into my conversation. Ninety nine percent of your photographs are square format black and white images as far as I know and you have been doing that for for for more than forty years. So how on earth does one stay motivated and keeps shutting mainly landscapes in the same format for for such a long time. Good Morning Tom. Shannon Seattle you're in Switzerland so it's a slightly different time zones. I'm very interested statistic of ninety nine percent that you could be ninety seven point seven five. I don't ask much well. You know I I started with many different is many different. Cameras experimented with the panoramas in thirty five millimeters horizontal eight by ten four by five. Lots of different ones for the first ten years. I I use thirty five millimeter. I found as often happens when using the same camera over and over it becomes to be predictable which is has the pros aide also has comes because you tend to get little trapped into those formats and I moved into the two and a quarter medium in the mid eighty s purposely to break up my rhythm essentially on now used a waist level finder so everything was back to fronton slimy upside down and made photographing a little more difficult. And I think that is one of the keys to photography generally is that we don't want to get too comfortable at anyone at any one time. Now I've been using this camera on off since the mid eighties so yes thirty years thirty years to great camera at the same time. I've experimented with different other formats die off news holders little cheap plastic cameras I often feel that the camera has very little do to do with the photographic journey just happens the hassle but I use is is is really a utilitarian quite precise but very basic camera. It comes with his basic functions of Lens Body Film back Viewfinder and those are interchangeable. So if they break down I can replace them days. I can old lawn mower for me. I I know the camera very well. I don't think it has much to do with the camera in terms of one's passion for photography. I think it has much more to do with one's in a drive to discover to be curious to constantly be investigated and explorer I can see you know using the same camera for the next two hundred years and finding sufficient material to keep you motivated for many lifetimes. That never been an issue with me. There are so many places so many countries so many things to photograph them. I just look at that. I I just don't ever see it as an issue kind of the lack of inspiration for me. It is much more a matter of trying to rein in all the divergent diverse. Numerous different possibilities and I hope that that is for everyone is just life is so amazing the Janica so amazing though so many fantastic places to go photographs that it's difficult for me to understand kind of the lack of inspiration lack of drive. I think there's so much out there when you talk about the cameras you actually answered my question. You know which I have prepared for later so because I can imagine that Photographic equipment itself. You know camera. Lenses are relatively low exactly on your personal credit but in order to pursue a certain vision certain look or simply a similar format of images to choose photographic gear accordingly right. I think it means to me. It would make sense to us a digital camera with all these bells and whistles for example. It's just not my character. Ibkr semi old is like an old guitar. I've been playing these niyaz years. Yes go into electronics. Thrall Bandon all these other things but when it comes down to the instrument you're using it needs to be a part of your body almost a part of your creative function. I have no interest in the GADGETRY. A as such Simpler the better for my way of working but that is just me and as you say. Everybody has to choose their own instrument of communication so for some people it is drones and and various new cameras on techniques. And and that's perfectly fine. It just doesn't fit with my way of working. What was it that extended to you about this square format? You are mainly known for square format images. Right I would think so at this point. Yes but certainly wasn't the first ten years of Korea because I did use it. What fascinates me? I think it is. It is for me. An Open universe I don't find that. I am confined as with most other. Formats such as thirty five millimeter. In which as I mentioned you already have to make decisions of whether they should be horizontal vertical. And how do I fit things into this rectangle with a square you'll basically playing with four equal sides and so you can compose accordingly? I still have the option often. Use it to crop lighter not necessarily into scored. If you actually look at work I do. Not many of them are real scores. A slightly horizontal slightly vote to goal. Sometimes I make score into a panorama either vertical or horizontal. So for me. It just gives me an enormous amount of flexibility. Would you say Composing Square format? Composing Damages is in a way easier or is it just more open. I mean like you know gives you more options. I think it gives you more options. I don't think it's either. Easier are more difficult. I think it's just another possibility. And how about black and white. Because again I I would be hard pressed. I think to to recall a color image of yours. Only commercial only commercial work. I just can't find. I have a proclivity towards the monochromatic spectrum. So most of the work that I that I appreciate his monochromatic. Black White again. It's it's just a personal thing. I've often say that we we see in color all the time. That's how world so when you reduce something to black and white. It immediately becomes more of an interpretation. It's mysterious or more calming offer. Me More meditational almost often use the the the the reference to writing and I said I prefer to be more of a Haiku poem we just a few elements of simplicity but a great amount of suggestion as opposed to an insight encyclopedia with huge amounts of facts and description. That is not what I'm interested in doing road Does happen at all these days for you that you you know using whatever it might be Shoot some color images while not seriously I mean I recently finally came around to getting one of these smartphone things so I can take snaps of wherever I go in. Another polaroid doesn't exist this. Icu very useful. Because it tells me what I am when I go back later to Reference Place so yes. I photograph in color just to make snacks. But it really doesn't interest me very much into the first thing I do is converted back into a white to see what it looks like. I just find black and white enables you to use your imagination much more than color. But it's a personal thing in one of your interviews from from several years ago. I guess you said there are great photographs by ordinary photographers and ordinary photographs by great photographers. Smart knows days so let me ask you. You know for your own. Very subjective opinion. How often does Michael Kenna manage to to produce a great photograph? I'm still trying haven't got one yet but one of these days. That's an impossible question because you could never put out to the description of one of your own photographs are you are you. Are you happy own photography? Never an I don't think one should be Yes contend that I'm on this wonderful journey as being an amazing Expedition But I. I don't think anybody should ever be satisfied with what they do want. You be striving. You know there's this you know. My favorite football team has Everton and they have this motto. It's called nil. Satis newsy optimum which wanting means nothing but the best is good enough so you give your best all the time. You strive for perfection all the time but hopefully you never reach it because if you reach perfection the the image probably would interesting is one of the things I resist with. The digital revolution is that is so easy to make things so perfect so clean so tidy that they kind of lose the ability to To evoke a reaction to evoke emotion it becomes a little antiseptic. I think So affect Striving for perfection is wonderful. But but I don't think I've ever reached out ever. Will I hope
Vegetable Breeding with Nate Kleinman
"A lot of what I learned about gardening decades ago I learned from seed catalogs always gravitating ones featuring the varieties the better plants promising. Lots of both personality and productivity. So when I got introduced to the nonprofit cooperative called Experimental Farm Network recently I felt right at home a corps belief at the F. N. that that act culture can and should be used to help build a better world not help destroy it. co-founders Nate Kleinman in New Jersey. There's e- and dusty hens in Minnesota chrome most of ESPN's seeds in each year. They're adding more growers to their roster including inspiring plant breeders who often often work in relative obscurity nature today to shine a light on these players and some old and new varieties. I think you'll be as excited about as I am. Welcome nate. I'm so glad to meet you so much. I'm really happy to be here is my motto. I like it I that should be. We should steal uh-huh so I'm so much have made your introduction and we have so many. CD friends in common. I'm surprised we haven't crust fat pass before but let's start with an explanation from you of what the experimental farm network is and how it got started. Sure and we've yeah we've only been around for a few years though not too surprising. People are definitely still learning about it. we we were founded in twenty thirteen gene destiny and I met actually through occupy Wall Street Movement In Philadelphia we were involved with occupy Philly and a group called occupy vacant. Lots lots which was working to To basically transformed vacant lots in the Philadelphia area into productive food growing spaces and dusty scene. I were Farming in small lots and and I had been urban farmers and backyard farmers for for some time but we both decided we wanted to to expand and Get some land and try and grow on a bigger scale and I had also been collecting rare seeds for a few years. At this. This point I had a growing collection and not enough places to grow them. I we started talking about. Should we start a seed company. What what do we want to What do we want to do with all of these seeds and It was actually at A. I went to a conference and I heard a talk from a guy named Eric. Tones Meyer from Massachusetts who's an author and And he wrote some great books. One called Paradise lost Another called The carbon urban farming solution and he gave a talk on perennial industrial crops and how perennial staple crops could be used to fight climate. Change and I had sort of known the story of perennial wheat and the the attempts to develop for any elite through the years. But there were he mentioned mentioned crops that I knew about but had no idea the potential that they might have as as potential Sources of energy of Industrial we'll crops An industrial uses fiber crops and of course food crops And there were always stories about how through through The last century people have made a lot of strides towards things like perennial wheat and then For for whatever reason they had to abandon it or you know they worked for university eventually. They retired and nobody was there to to pick up the slack so At the same time I had been working working with Occupy Sandy which was a grassroots hurricane relief organization that grew out of the occupy movement following Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York and so we had This was a really successful effort. How mobilized tens of thousands of volunteers and was in neighborhoods that the the government was not in and the Red Cross and Salvation Army that we were able to fill a lot of folding and impressed a lot of people in including the people involved with it for being amateurs doing something that is normally reserved for professionals and doing a great job at it so I started thinking well if we can apply the same kind of ethos to some of the problems in in plant breeding some of these things that have been nagging at people for for generations like developing viable perennial brain props If we could create a a collaborative horizontal model where people are working together in a decentralized centralized fashion that maybe we could drive innovation and help to to create some of these some of these crops that really need to exist So that that sort of the of the whole thing and so besides the seed Catalog online that we're going to get to in a second the or these projects that that you're in you're we're doing like for instance. seeking improved genetics of the Native Beach Plum. Which I think is what is it prunes? Meritas that what that is or the native May POPs the native passion flowers that in Karnataka. PASSIFLORA incarnate. Is that one didn't make that up. Sometimes they make that names and and so so there's all kinds of of projects besides the seeds That are in the where people can shop and and get things are these projects going on to Like you just talked about perennial grains and so forth but for some native important Plants Plant says. Well yes yes. We're working with a lot of a lot of native plants that have potential as as domesticated crop plants. People just I need to put the work into it and we figure if if before all working together we can do better job I mean. Plant breeding is. It's I often say play. Printing is looking for a needle in a haystack. STAC you're trying to find that exact correct collection of genes and traits. And so if you if you have more people looking through the haystack back. You're going to find the needle fast now. So I have listening lots of starving from winter gardeners who want to buy seeds and shop proceeds in fine crazy. He's going to grow and whatever so. Let's go to the store front and I think you you just put up your list recently early January For Twenty Twenty and I think you have more than in two hundred offerings hundred. I think we're new to you There's a few common threads running through The listings and one one of them as I said in the introduction perennial edibles and I thought. Let's talk about some of those and I see that on instagram. You say ah many of these will be friends. As a major part of our nonprofit mission is encouraging farmers and gardeners to plant more carbon sequestering perennial crops. So that's sort of the the the mission behind the perennial edible thing. Yes you plant. It does its job for a long time Yup and and because you have a perennial. You're not tilling. The soil and active jealous is what releases so much carbon into the atmosphere. It's not just tractors and the equipment equipment chemicals people use but but just a very active tilling. Yeah so for instance there. Are you have seeds book. Believe or or something for ramps and Rhubarb. So tell me about. Some of the Rhubarb story was fascinating actually. Yeah I love the one of my favorite scenes yourselves the Tracy Rhubarb of which is Name we gave to a variety of rhubarb that You know it it may have had another name originally but for all we know it It it was a you know a seedling. Potentially that was planted by Friends of my family who were an elderly couple who since passed away and after they died hide their daughter-in-law took me to the property. She wanted to find the rhubarb and digging up because it was all they always made delicious. Baked goods with at and She she was pacing around the back yard looking for it underneath the in the grass and They'd had a they'd had somebody mowing the grass every couple of weeks while the house on the market gets and finally she found this This pencil thin stock with a quarter-sized leaf at the end of it. And so they're they're far very unimpressive presence but had survived under the MOWER. Blades for a couple years. And when we put the shovel to the ground we've found a huge dude route underneath the ground and I was able to dig it up and and run away. Divided into three chunks and each chunk became a plant that my friends in my friend's backyard in Pennsylvania and then We started splitting it up even more and I sent to my sister in Michigan and a friend in Baltimore and I I planted it in New Jersey and then pretty soon. We realized that this was a really extraordinary rhubarb. Had really fix fix stems so It's very easy to use in the kitchen and has enormous leaves which shade out all the weeds in a within a three foot area around the plant. So it's it's very very easy to grow and then one of the most Exciting things about it is that compared to all the other rhubarb that we grow It's the least attractive to the Japanese. Beetles also have a Japanese problem. Where you live? You may know that they They seem to love Rhubarb and they can really Decimate a plant in In the summer when they're when they're at their peak so this one survives through through the summer really well it's it's early and and it produces another flush in the fall. Aw and it's it's It's just delicious too. It's got A it's got A. It's not deep bread. It's got red at the base of the of the stock But enough to make any jam I am or tie that you make have nice pink colored and And it's just delicious

Did we get any any answers as to why we don't have deceptive speed yet? Okay so apparently not tell you about this. Who THAT WAS. That was originally the ad. The idea twitter said you know what we'RE CLEANING UP THE ACCOUNTS. We're getting people that have not tweeted in like forever for this case. The AD deceptive speed account hasn't tweeted since two thousand twelve believe and Just sitting there causing a disturbance in the world i. She called the cops on him part fourteen times but there was a lot of backlash about that. Read all about it. Each twitter people people that no. Don't do this where upset because what if the person died so people die on the twitter account. Obviously I can't be tweeting anymore so twitter's like Oh shit. It's a good point. Is this me.

"Who are. We've all got one platform. How will you don't let people know not to gamble? Shame your friends. Oh never I like. I said I had the over and had Byu minus two in this game and my friends kind of a shame to me a little bit about gambling on this game go. Why the Hell Game on Hawaii? Byu and and I said why the hell not. Because I'm having a great time watching this meaningless bowl game on Christmas seasons all about Eve. Yourself rooting interest somehow exactly makes this game great. So you know one of my buddies was getting into it. He's not a big gambler but he was getting into it because at one at one point Byu Was Byu was was down three. I believe it was so so we were trying to figure. Out You know touchdown field goal. He's like I think your best case scenario right now is is Byu fugel overtime and then. Byu kicks a field goal to win. We needed the over to hit still and I was like this Guy Robbie southern southern with guy I think he knows. I think he knows some stuff. You got a guy I know. Yeah Guy now but I think I might have planted the seed gambling. Seton. It's somebody else's brain is. His brain was working trying to figure out the best scenario for me to win my bets and he wasn't even betting on the game and he was still like really into it. Because I was betting on it so they might have got him a little hooked on on the gambling but he was into it. That's for sure. If there's any time you can get your get your friends to lose a bunch of money. There's no call McDonald A white quarterback dreads coal McDonnell. Did you have a farm I don't know but he threw for four hundred yards and four touchdowns through five hundred yards. Four ninety. Three four touchdowns was was electric youth. Exactly like out. Imagine a quarterback at Hawaii would look like white guy dreads blonde. I'd imagine he thoroughly enjoys Shredding Nar and getting paid it was definitely a Nar shredder. It was an absolutely it was a great game back and forth. Fun We've talked about. Byu A few times this year and For the Rainbow Warrior's just a great mascot. Great Name and a Hawaii got the victory a lot of fun watching this one. Did you get my farm joke? I did like McDonnell farm. Yeah it's pretty good right when you said it's the first in mind that was. That was good stuff. I didn't even plan at sets creative. Im with by with my thoughts there but Byu. I could not because I hate them. They have strube so many times as you're betting on them than against them bang they're overspending there unders everything they have done with them has been terrible and I don't know how you bet for. Byu When you're Utah Fan Archrival Yup can do it not gonNa do it by the way. I just loved the fact this is. This is peak gambling at their Christmas Eve at the bar watching these so-fi Hawaii able be seen and for you. I you it was. There's nothing there's nothing better than that said it was part to generate. I felt kinda generate but getting one of my buddies to get really into this meaningless game because like I said he was like you need to. Byu feel here. Otherwise you're not gonna hit the cover and the over. You might hit one of the two and sure enough. That's what ended up happening is Hawaii scored a touchdown to win and I hit the over but did hit. Byu minus two and just watching him do the math in his head and try to figure out the scenarios he was laying out all the scenarios. It was great. I inspired a new generation loss favorite things about joining the gambling world. Like when you're at a bar or if you had a game and you just can tell somebody's way to do it You know there's like you just give give a little nod go. Yeah we know. It's funny because like all of our friends are in town. Obviously they're all we all got together. I would say there's probably like fifteen of us in like this little like kind of like sectioned off room part of the bar and they're all converse in you know catching up house live and I'm just sitting there staring at the TV. Hawaii is like what the hell? Why do you care about this game like because a win? Some money and get Christmas started on a good note And I want a little money do didn't win as much as I would have. Byu would've got their head out of there. S covered at minus two. But still still one and it was great. Yeah I was I was. I was that guy last night for Christmas Eve Fisher. What's Christmas Eve like at a Bar? I always have a same same like family thing on late on New Year's Eve so we never or or Christmas. Say so he never go anywhere. Yeah I it's Is it a PAC establishment. Yeah it was pretty busy beloit because there's only like two bars that are open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day They both open like later than they normally would. So I think this place opened at like six. Pm Christmas Eve and Yeah it was pretty busy pretty crowded so there is a good time by the way breaking news Interception yeah all right so what appears if lose. Antiques can win this game seven. Fm Let's go to says. I don't know watching this on game. Cast right now. It's kind of confusing. Says the balls but they re picking doesn't make sense whatever little bit. My favorite game shown the one right before that game Debut for your call last year's cheese at bowl Do you recall last year? She's a bowl. I don't there was like it was cal not cows. Tcu AGAINST CAL. There was like ten turnovers and the quarterbacks both through combined seventy yards One of the worst experiences I was ever seen in College Football Game while UCF and Marshall in the bad boy. Moore's Gaspar able. It was pretty electric. This is GonNa Happen to like one thirty in the afternoon on On on Monday. Which is a we're we`re. We're both schedule this season by the way but the council playoffs or early this is weird but UCF scored two touchdowns in the first six minutes. They were out gained one hundred thirty eight to eighty six after the first quarter. They're leading twenty one. Zero One's GonNa Shock Years January shocked. I am ready to be shocked. Oh at the shock year. Ucf outgained Marshall in the second quarter one hundred. Sixty eight zero homeboy. Marshall scored seven points. Ucf scored three above that. You've outscored one hundred. Sixty eight outgained hundred sixty eight zero two quarter and you won that quarter. I four points. That's Pretty Wild Marshall. Turn the ball over six times. Ucf had one interception two fumbles. There was a play in which they were offsetting Facemasks ooh that's pretty cool to see that's fine. You don't see that very often. I'm not sure it happened because it really watch this game because I was I was at work but UCF wins forty eight twenty five in the National Gem. Ucf National Champs. Wanted to sleep once again. Tonight's show couch playoff this weekend. There is it starts in the chick filet peach bowl nothing talks. Nothing says people like Chick-fil-a lsu Thirteen at point favorites Oklahoma in Hotlanta. Oh yeah outlandish on the difference in this game. It's going to be the quarterback position. Yeah else you've got a great one and Joe Borough by the way heisman. We haven't talked about yet. Heisman is the speech was awesome. Great Fantastic speech on made coach coach. Cry Yeah May coach cry which is always good. Grow quite a lot did you. What were your thoughts on? The the final vote tally. Because I think we all knew that job he. He won by like a historic margin. But did you have yes? I didn't even. I didn't even check this out the night here that Jalen hurts a second. Yes Yup oh jalen hurts was second which is absurd that is that is a guy who I didn't even think outta those should have been there. Should've been the Taylor. And you say you know Wisconsin by all you want but Jalen hurts road a Oklahoma quarterback bias. Yeah that's what that is. He wrote a really good first month.

Pelosi announces impeachment inquiry, says Trump’s courting of foreign political help is a ‘betrayal of national security’
"Up are the Democrats out over their skis on his impeachment inquiry thing was just an inquiry so they're actually calling for full impeachment yet they're calling for the opening of an inquiry which gives them a few additional powers they can use to pry documents out of the hands of the executive branch and all that Nancy Pelosi just moments ago made an announcement stating that she is looking to open a formal impeachment inquiry here is what it sounded like one terrific. the actions of the trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office betrayal of our national security in the trial of the integrity of our elections therefore today I am announcing house of representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry I'm directing a six committees to proceed with their investigations under that umbrella of impeachment inquiry the president must be held accountable no one is above the law. so she's basing that on from not turning over the whistleblower complaint but she is not actually basing that on the underlying complaint itself because she hasn't seen that yet she's saying trump obstructing the movement of the whistle blower complaint over to Congress is the basis for the impeachment inquiry so presumably at some point we will see the whistleblower complaint and we'll know what exactly is in there this could turn out by the way to be again trump just acting badly like the second half of the mower port without trump committing a criminal impeachable offence an entire second have another report was from going to everybody could find and being like you know the great every mother and everything now and I'm like okay and that was it. and that's all thank and I was not impeachable it was not criminal is not prosecutable any of that. this can be very similar this could be truck melting off his landscape and there's no actual quid pro quo is just literally him out in office Lenski because trump melts off line we're not gonna know that absent the investigation. does he is obviously getting hot and bothered about that she really believes that the other she was going to drop here and there will indeed be a quid pro quo but we're told for two and a half years there would be some sort of quid pro quo between Putin and probably never happen there's Nancy Pelosi talking about this today on Thursday the inspector general testified before the house intelligence committee stating that the acting director of national intelligence blocked him from disclosing the whistle blower complaint this is a violation of law the law is unequivocal the DNA staff from us it says the D. N. I. D. and nice director of national intelligence shall provide Congress the full whistle blower complaint so what exactly happens in an impeachment inquiry a love for black hippies back in may about all of this they asked whether the for purposes of carrying out further investigation the house's hand will be strengthened significantly even initiated impeachment proceedings may fifteenth letter from the White House counsel patch pull it patch blown to Jerry Naylor chairman of the house committee on the judiciary Brett brought that question the stark relief basically the White House said they wouldn't provide any documents or information requested by the Judiciary Committee back in may as part of an investigation announced into alleged obstruction
Rooster ‘Was Just Being Himself’: Court Rules He Can Keep Crowing
"I cannot tell you how long i've waited for this day. Finally the verdict is in on the surface. This trial was about a noise disturbance but it's become about so much more urban ization cultural heritage farm animals the world sir birnbaum tells us about a case from a small village in western france. There are so many things about a trial that can seize public imagination tense cross examinations the nation's you want answers. I think i'm entitled to handle the truth. Slam dunk expert testimonies. There is is no way that these tire marks were made by sixty four buick skylark. These marks were made by a nineteen sixty. Three pontiac tempest stunning courtroom confessions me shoot him through the door but with the draw in this particular case was the sympathetic defendant maurice the rooster maurice didn't take the stand but he was at at the center of this case. Maria was accused by the neighbors making too much noise in the morning so they took maurice's owner carinthia so to court and demanded that she shut him up well today. Fesso and maurice emerged victorious. The court declared that maurice can continue to crow oh and ordered the plaintiffs to pay about a thousand dollars per so told local tv that she's relieved g invicta thumbs. I lived for bringing home. A victory and i'm very happy i was able to do it and i'm going to say to maurice. We one you can stay. The neighbors who brought the case didn't do interviews views but their lawyer have dole said his clients aren't anti rooster their anti-noise focus because chefs know my clients. Don't want roosters not to sing. They want some quiet in the morning so they can sleep and they're bothered by the rooster just like they would have been bothered by a barking dog or a lawn mower worker. I know what you're thinking. Why has this generated international attention and the reason is what began as a battle about a bird has become a battle for france's very soul you see the neighbors are out of towners in the house in the village is their second home and carinthia so so has been there for more than thirty years. This case has become symbolic clash between locals who want to preserve their way of life crowing roosters ars and all versus the newcomers who just want a peaceful country home fizeau summed it up cudi junkies companion planners people who come to the countryside need to stop complaining and they have to adapt if they don't adapt then they can just go back. There is an urban rural divide died in france. We saw that earlier this year with the yellow vest protests. The divide is political. It's economic. It's cultural now. The marines cases a a little more complicated. The neighbors aren't from the city there from town in central france and ironically they happen to be retired. Farmers still hundreds hundreds of thousands of people signed a save maurice petition crowds gathered outside the courthouse with their chickens and roosters and toe and you can even buy a let me sing t shirt with maurice's face on it. The trial is over now but it's not clear if it's the end of the poultry drama

Hey brain stuff lauren vocal bomb here in the latter half of the twentieth century. One George Ballas invented what he called the weed weed eater. It's a motorized we'd grass trimming device that uses rapidly revolving strings to cut down vegetation in small spaces without destroying the bark of trees. It's easy to use doesn't require much gas or electricity to run genius but perhaps not <music> as genius as humanities original weed eater domesticated ten thousand years ago goats of course using goats as mowers went wildly out of fashion for awhile in between that a now but using goats to maintain vegetation works just as well today. It did an ancient Mesopotamia goats are commonly used to control big swaths of land in cemeteries parks airports and even Google headquarters and though they don't cut grass and vegetation down as evenly as a piece of machinery there are a lot of benefits to using animals rather Ben Machinery and herbicides goats after all don't require petroleum products residential homes in the United States us about six hundred million gallons of fossil fuels each year on lawn maintenance and that doesn't even include green spaces like highway medians military. Hey Basis and public lands but we're there is vegetation goats can do a decent job of nine down invasive weeds in a more sustainable way. Also goats can turn that unwanted brush into milk meat and fiber like Kashmir. If you play your cards right goats are known for their nimble hooves which can get places a mower can't especially through rocky or wooded areas. They're also highly motivated and will accept the challenge of even the steepest slope Chicago's O'hare International Airport. Isn't it seventh season of using A.

They've also incorporated Llamas Alpacas into their grazing heard a plus goats eat a variety of different plants. They're not picky. Goats are browsers rather than grazers like cows and horses aggressors will keep the lawn mode but if you want an animal that will take a chance on an unusual looking vine goats are for you though practically always try plant they don't know and they can tolerate a wide variety of plant species though care should be taken to make sure there's nothing on the land that's outright toxic goats. Perhaps the only drawback is that you can't set goats out to work on their own. They need to be monitored because they're great escape artists. It's at O'hare national land cleaning is important because it keeps wildlife off the property because they can denude even the toughest bramble ticket the airport uses goats and other animals to take care of their stubborn overgrowth to keep wildlife and people safe.

Then to give them a six pack of their favorite cheap. Beer, than tell them, you're buying a house. You should've seen his face make no mistake. Like my mother before me. I m a mean girl a mean girl with a lawn mower. What's your feet? A backyard is a weird thing on one hand. It's a huge pain in the ass. And yet, also kind of status symbol. You're fortunate. If you have one, they serve as great buffers between you and whatever noise, your neighbor might be making they allow you, some. Privacy during warm weather your spouse can grill things while you down frozen Margaritas. Most importantly, a yard, suggest you own a house, or you're paying a mortgage.

No, I don't know go skydiving zip lining, or sitting a hammock reading a book than do yard work. I would will not. So sure about the skydiving part, but what if mowing the lawn was faster and more fun. We're all down for that, right? Couple of advancements from the mowing industry, just might make that possible. Sound like a race car. It's not that is the sound of Honda's mean more to speed demon that just won a place in the Guinness Book of rural records with an engine that could go from zero to one hundred miles per hour in just six seconds. It can hit top speeds of one hundred fifty miles an hour. That's so about one hundred and forty seven miles an hour faster than you can push your gas mower at a light jog. The mean mower can actually cut grass at one hundred miles an hour alas, but slow the speed fifty and it can Honda demonstrated that feet with an amusing video showing a man using walk behind mower to cut the vast acreage at Goodwood the Duke of Richmond's English castle, naturally, the one hundred nine horsepower, mean more left the proper Englishman in the dust. So if your yard is anything close to the size of the duke's estate, you might want that mean mower route of luck though there. Not for sale. Got your attention, though, right? Yeah. Yeah. That's the point Honda is fighting to keep its place, as a leader in lawnmowers eco-friendly electric grass cutters have grown up and their performance is now good enough to compete head to head with traditional gas, powered devices consumer reports compared to more from ego electric to a middle priced gas gas-powered one from Honda at close to six hundred bucks. The planet friendly ego will set you back two hundred bucks more than the Honda. But it obviously uses no gas requires less maintenance is lighter and quieter Honda's mower performs. Well, but it's so noisy that consumer reports recommends wearing hearing protection to use it electric lawnmowers like the ego still have one big challenge, though. Just like electric cars. They'll only go so far on charge. The ego will run about an hour before you have to juice it up again. So if a speed demon lawnmower isn't in your future and an electric when makes. Mowing more eco friendly but still a chore. What else could you do? Try a robot roomba the robot vacuum cleaner company promises to introduce a robot mower in Germany in the third quarter and bring it here to the US next year. But you better really hate mowing. Because it will set you back somewhere between nine hundred dollars and oh, ten thousand dollars. I think I'm just called kid down the street.

Fed, Matthew Zeti And Arthur Burns discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"A quiet day to day, but the later on Paul Suinian this, the securities beautifully to our next guest. We have some several many in. The minutes of the fed, which I find ridiculous. And the minutes used to be used to be to try to measure Arthur burns, the what the pipe smoke said out of his pipe. And then it was Greenspan multi syllable. Speeches. And now it's some several many Matthew Zeti joins your Bank right now on the American economy. What fail you miss you do you get out of the minutes? I think the value of the minutes depends on what has happened in between the meeting and today and I think that's a particularly important for about today's minutes. The minutes will typically today should show, the fed was a little bit more optimistic on the growth fund mystic on, on trade, and in global growth. And it clearly that's become stale, given that we've had the flair trade tensions since then I think, more importantly, we'll be looking at is how they talked about the inflation dynamics outlook. Well, let me look into that in moment, but this is really important. The minutes became a joke about some several in many do they still do that to the minute still say some of our districts, several members do they still have absolutely absolutely do. And, and you know, part of job is parsing through how many members and officials are represented by each camping anything on the inflation front, that's going to be an important distinction today. If they feel Matthew, I think from the feds perspective, they feel that inflation is let's call it. Stubbornly low, do you think the fed can even influence inflation? I think that's a key question. And we've certainly seen a number of fed officials and, and academics and others focusing on the fact that the Phillips curve fund, meaning that inflation, does not seem to be as responsive or sensitive to the unemployment rate in growth has been in the past week. We put in a note just recently early this week and it looked at how much of the core PC basket KENDALL said actually affect either through the economic growth or through the dollar. We think about two thirds of the basket. They can't affect that means that there's about a third of the basket that they cannot. And so it does put constraints I think on how much they can they can get inflation. Can I get back to two percent and from this policy framework, debate can even get above two percent if they wanted to so from your perspective, what can lead in a flation higher wage? Just looking at wages, you know three point two percent. That does not seem to be doing it. Yeah. I think wage growth has not been doing it or for a few reasons, one is that productivity growth has risen in line with wage growth. And so you haven't seen these costs push pressures come come through. In addition, these some of these components that, that cannot affect have been been weaker. But I think the fed, if they are looking to push inflation, higher, it's going to, to be through the economy, typing and more importantly to inflation expectations really, really important. How do they force inflation higher? Is there is there a legit published academic study that says a fed pushed inflation higher? I think the whole Phillips curve, framework, which has, has clearly come under question is about the fed being able to push inflation higher. But that's the effectiveness of that has declined because the sensitivity of inflation dislike has declined history. Well, let's go to Walter Heller. He was before you met the sixties did they, quote unquote push inflation higher. Or was it other forces that moved to play should higher? It was a combination if you look back to the sixties, you had an economy that clearly had head over tightened up. They continue to push unemployment rate lower at the same time. You had health care initiatives, that, that let this guy rocketing healthcare inflation. So that was outside their control. But I think most importantly, inflation expectations rose substantially inefficient expectations versus actually because the fed was really trying to get a hot economy at that time they could contain a push mower. And just in time, he had massive fiscal stimulus. So does it looks at that period and said this wasn't uninteresting inflation, expectations and they look forward? Look at that is the key. Way too short. Betsy was we gotta get you in your three hours at some point. He's working with Peter Hooper, just brilliant. Brilliant,
Heart Attack Symptoms in Women
"And and I gotta tell you women are in the workforce, they they've got a lot on their plate. They don't care what anyone says, you know, you've got multiple jobs every single woman between the job they go to work for nine to five. Plus, they put their mom hat on or their spouse had on and they're taking care of everything. And the one thing Dr Crawford that always sits in my brain is how men and women are council differently about their risk of heart disease and the symptoms there thereof. So can you kind of go through that difference? Well, I think main thing is many years ago back in the Reader's Digest era. You know, there was an article written that if a man has pain in the center of his chest up to his left shoulder to his jar or down with left arm that you know, the wife she called nine one one immediately. And that message got out and has been known for decades, literally on the other hand because women do have different symptoms. Probably only a quarter of women actually hit straightforward chest pain. Most of them have more vague symptoms like an aching somewhere in the front or the back of the top half of their body, shortness of breath, tiredness chest pressure, and even sometimes they're upper stomach people think that maybe they're having a viral guest strata or having gallbladder problems. And they just don't recognize because it's not straightforward chest pain, but one in three women die of heart problems, cardiovascular disease when you talk about it, both heart attack. Stroke is absolutely by far. The number one killer of women. I think that the go red for women program has been around for about fifteen years now and people on TV might see the newscasters wearing red dresses or red tie and wearing the red dress ten for sure the breast cancer. I think association did offending tested job really getting women to do self breast exams at home. And I think it made a big impact. I think the biggest thing because this is sort of it really turns out being a word of mouth woman to woman kind of a thing when I get the opportunity to talk just reminding the next generation of women that heart disease should be on your gender that one in three women are gonna die of a heart attack or stroke, and that the symptoms are a little bit different. Would we had our conference together last year? You had a really interesting statistic about the time from a man having symptoms to getting help. I as a woman having symptoms to getting help. So I like to seriously and jokingly say that if a man is having symptoms at home. It takes about one minute literally for someone to pick up the phone and call nine one one the average length of time it takes for a woman to get into the ER on average is twelve hours. So when we talk about, you know, door to balloon times, if someone really is having a heart attack and need to catheterization angioplasty time is muscle and the standard of care. Now is that you have to be in the test left, basically in sixty to ninety minutes from the time, you're paying starts. And so this is where women really get into trouble because they have much bigger heart attacks, they have more extensive, my heart attacks, and they end up with weaker, heart muscles, more damage and then on top of it. There's just this dilemma still where sometimes the woman has to be their own advocate. Even if they're pretty sure they have heart problem. And they call for help. Then you have the problem with some of the doctors still have the wrong bias that the number one killer of women, isn't heart disease. And so you really have to problems that patient, and then everybody else in the world who still doesn't seem to get this message either, you know, with women you'll see here that it might feel like indigestion or nausea or Adele, backache or just being tired. So I'm sitting here, and I have risk factors for heart disease, family and personal. But I I'm exhausted. So I'm like, okay, am I having a heart attack or am? I just having a busy day. I mean, I'm nauseous was it the nachos. Or do I have a heart attack? So so these subtle symptoms. How do I know when to go to the ER versus it's really nothing. Well, I think one of the things I would say is I tell most women can you do this year. What you could do last year. And is this a similar recurring problem that you've had for months or years that nothing bad has happened? Help you sort of say, well, maybe this isn't that? But on the other hand, if you're not sure to in a baby aspirin, and then taking to acids. You know, kinda helps you sort through is it my stomach if I suddenly have you know, a little burp. And then I feel better that might lead you away from it on the other hand, if you know, let's just say last summer, you could move the grass. Trim. The weeds pulled the, you know collect the flowers all that kind of thing. And now you get halfway through the front yard with your lawn mower in your face is red. And you have a heavy chest and you're exhausted. And you just don't feel right. And you have kind of a Bernese dull ache that you'd never had before that would be the time for sure to go to the hospital new different or worse than it had been if you've had similar discomforts before. And of course, if you're having similar discomforts that would be a time, you know, if you really do think, they're stable certainly go to your doctor and advocate for yourself and go ahead and call her chest pressure or chest discomfort because part of us being allowed to test on people with insurance is getting tighter. And tighter is if you have symptoms, so we can say atypical symptoms of chest pressure gas tightness in the chest. But it's still a symptom in the near them. We can get a stress test, which are pretty reliable in sorting through. What's serious cardiac problems? And what isn't Dr Crawford. We know that. We shouldn't smoke we should exercise, and we should eat well to help prevent heart disease. But I understand there's some new data that talks about some things that can happen in pregnancy. That might also increase our risk for heart disease. Well, first of all, this standard risk factors that we've heard for a long time debut, obesity, sedentary not eating the right things high cholesterol, smoking, all those things you briefly touched on, but in two thousand eighteen the guidelines came up with a few there. That I think especially for your younger viewer really need to hear about the I is is a woman during her pregnancy had pre eclampsia this is a risk factor for heart problems when you get older like just the fact that you had proclaims the and hypertension because a lot of people at had that will end up getting hypertension. It's a risk factor. The second thing that I think women struggle with always is trying to get back to pre baby weight, and it actually made the guidelines now that if you stay more than twenty pounds, overweight, and if by one year, you are not to your, you know, pre baby weight and more importantly to the proper BMI for your height. In other words, you know, how much do you weigh for how Paul you are which on average is five pounds

Remaining College Football Bowl Games with the Most Entertainment Value
"We're gonna talk about the college bowl games because there were some this weekend. Yeah. You and the other five people that watched the ball games. I'd like to talk about what you saw. So what was your best and worst from the bowl games? We can and who won the Louisiana New Orleans. Jumble. Aia bowl. Wait. What Louisiana's you said? A lot of words Louisiana New Orleans jambalaya bowl. Well in the cure bowl. I think is what you're trying to inform. Tulane beat Louisiana forty-one twenty four, but they were a lot of turnovers caused by Louisiana fumbles. And they thought they were gonna come back. It was actually pretty close game. But to kind of spread kind of got away from them and they play excellent on the offense deciding came back from those turnovers. So they took that game. That was my only in my bowl picks. That was my only loss. I got each other, right? Like, I said I picked Utah state to beaten North Texas. A just man had on them fifty to thirteen at half. It was thirty eight to seven like this game was over by that point. And I pick Fresno state to go over Arizona state in Francis did win they were the ranked team going to that thirty one twenty. They played really well themselves state did not have their best wide receiver who declared for the draft. So we wasn't not playing this game. His his agent actually paid for him to fly to the bowl game. So he wants them play which was kinda cool Georgia Southern parallelly beat eastern Michigan twenty three twenty one. They play. It was twenty one to twenty. And then it was a going into like two minutes of the game. It was a two minute drill. Basically. They drove down the field. All right down the middle. Just getting twenty twenty art play. And they go to win the game. So that was fun to watch. I picked to win that too. And then Appalachian state against. Middle Tennessee State. But it was apple has been ranked in the AP poll knows them as the team that beat Michigan. But they were ranked this you're actually at twenty five and I picked him to win and they won against forty five thirteen. So I am five in one at the moment. Oh, well, that's so good doing great. But don't. So what's next on tap the next? Are we going to watch the tomorrow, we have a Alabama Birmingham against northern Illinois in the that? I think I'm gonna say here Bundy, Boca Raton bowl. Yes. It is the book Raton bowl. My god. These names I love him. I love these bowl games. Who'd you pick for that one? Let me check like oh picks. Actually, I will check. I have a live idea. Really? No, no, no. I I always saved. My so Frisco bowl. I oh. Well, since Birmingham, Alabama ram wasn't a school wasn't a football program. One point and then won their conference this year. I picked on to go over northern Illinois to to win the Booker Raton. Yes. And then I think Wednesday also there is a big state versus Ohio in the Frisco bowl, which I pick Senegal state to win. But Thursday's the real bowl game that everybody's excited about the band Marshall and self mowers gasp. Up south Florida versus Marshall hell is a Gasparilla bowl.
