What Will This Feeble FBI Do Next? Lord Conrad Black Weighs In
"Conrad, it seems this is every week that there's another. Disgusting, sullying detail, first it was the FBI agents demanding the cameras be switched off, keeping the attorneys outside of the building, then it was rifling through Melania Trump's wardrobe, and now raiding a 16 year old young boy's bedroom Conrad? Yeah, I agree with you. I think it just gets worse and worse. And meanwhile, the excuse for doing it becomes a fainter and feebler. All the time. I mean, they danced around for a while with the Niagara river of leaks with which the Justice Department now routinely operates and then is like this. And it all completely illegal as you know, and completely unprofessional. And the sort of thing, by the way, that in Canada create Britain, you'd be disbarred for. I mean, the lawyers responsible in the DoJ and the FBI's lawyers who were involved in this. But they stopped for, but 6 hours on the idea of the espionage act and abandoned that. We had the nuclear secrets and nonsense. And in the desperation and their amateurism, the spread out these documents on the ride on the floor, but the rooms of Mar-a-Lago as if that's how the former president had treated these things and then scattered them around. Which turned out to be empty folders, empty folders. Yeah, I mean, the whole thing is just crumbling. Other than in the, in the resistless and bigoted imaginations of the anti Trump media.

"Well, you were talking about the 1893 exposition. First off. I mean, there's generators at Niagara Falls that Tesla put in that are still running. Yes. To help lighten the young. The only practical way to light New York was AC. Right. You hear about that now, too, if you go through some of the exhibits up by Niagara Falls. I mean, at least finally, Tesla, 'cause when I was a kid, Tesla was considered to be this complete Yahoo who was just nuts, you know? I mean, that was the image that was presented. And we've come a long way from that now, which is, which is a good thing. So I started reading about them when I was in college, but you didn't have all the stuff you have now like on the Internet and everything is so much easier to find information on them. Well, I think you have just a lot more information in general not only the Internet, but more people studying them because it was easy to discount them, count them before. But ultimately, I don't think that Edison and Tesla hated each other. I think there was a certain amount of mutual respect there, but clearly Edison always made it out that he was going to get the credit no matter what it was. So I'm sure going to AC was not easy for him. No, no, it wasn't. You know, and there are those who said, you know, Edison didn't invent the lightbulb. He simply figured out how to sell it. And while that's not accurate either, the reality, though, is the business acumen is more important than the engineering know how. And that's really too bad. Okay, well, I just thought I'd talk about something a little lighter. Absolutely. Well, actually, it's not lighter when you think about it. It's just a heartbreaking story that Tesla lived. You know, we're talking about him now, but this had to be torture. But. Yeah, well, our world is better off, but I don't think he cared. I think all he cared about was the research. I think he was kind of his thinking was a level above ours. Several levels above ours. I think there's a lot to that, but I also think that there were a lot of people who discounted him on so many levels that it couldn't have been easy. Yeah. You know, so we'll probably never know. But I think if I had to pick a word to describe him, I probably would say tortured. Yeah, it could be. I don't know. But you know, thank God for him. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Our world would be so different. Yes. Yes. Well, and that's hard to say. It would be a different timeline. I'm not thoroughly convinced that ideas don't come about ultimately by one way or another. So much of what he did would have come out at a different time by a different person. I think. Because a different way, of course. You may have come out in a different way of course. Absolutely it would have. But you know, in an interesting that most of the advancements that we see, you see developing almost simultaneously in three or four places around the world. It's almost like if the universe says, okay, you can have this now and suddenly people think of something. So I'm sure it would have come out, but not quite the way he brought it out. Yeah. Well, I'm glad you're called. And hopefully everybody will be interested enough to take a look at it beyond beyond movies because I know there's movies and stuff. Well, there's a lot of good stuff out there. This is quite a huge Tesla Facebook pages now to worldwide. People are really starting to look into stuff. Yeah. And everybody still free energy, especially nowadays. Well, and that, of course, that, of course, is the big thing. If he really did develop that, is that was that his ultimate undoing because you know how many people didn't want that to happen. Well, yeah, JPMorgan. Yeah, well, the list is endless. Yeah. I want you to figure it out. You couldn't charge for free energy. Well, that's right. So there's the real story. Always good to hear from you, thanks. Okay, thanks, Riley. All right, indeed. 888-876-5593. We'll get to Laurie on

"Selected that you want to talk about today. I'm very excited about this. Because you have decided to go what i would say north and south you being the north united states being south of you so i'm curious as to what winds you've got for us today little cross border collaboration here. I've got to pedo donors because that does happen to be my favorite grape of choice. So i've got lacrosse from sonoma's valley nice cool climate in california and then all of our wines cool climate here in canada. This is hidden. Bench are from the niagara region. Es so the cinema is a two thousand eighteen the hidden benches at two thousand nineteen. I got a big glass because as you know scott. Pr store aromatic. We wanna give it lots of room to swirl around and collect those lovely aromas but this one is just so beautiful. I'm starting with the hidden bench because it is cooler so it has more acidity. The noma lacrima is much more fruit forward even though it's still very balanced medium bodied juicy. That sort of thing. So i'll just take a sip just to be sure and check here for you. I wanna be thorough goodness. I love the is almost as big as your airings. Yes i can have facial afterwards. After i finished my wine in the glass itself at so beautiful i just love the way pinot noir gets the juices running literally. Wet your appetite. Which i think what an ideal wine should do. Oh it's a gusher. And then and it's got those right berries and cherries and little bit a plum but mostly cherries this crema. It's got a bit of a deeper color bit darker on the fruit whereas the hidden bench was like red fruit. This sort of dark red but again. Not anything you'd find in a cabernet like like kosice or a black currant. Not that dark looks darker than it is. Definitely i mean. I don't know the lighting is hard to tell. But i can tell just looking at them here especially if i had a white background the color would be even more magnified the difference but really lovely again. Lots of juicy city. Both of these would be so good with roast chicken and turkey veal. Grilled veggies grow portabella mushroom. Be the bomb. I think they're wonderful. I love these two lines. So i want to go back to the hidden bench for moment. I don't think a lot of people have an opportunity to sample canadian wines. Can unite talk a little bit about the region. This is coming from and what the wine growing areas like his. I'm fascinated by canadian ones. I've had the great pleasure of visiting canada on several occasions in china whites. But i don't think a lot of people get exposed canadian lines it's great it's beautiful region to visit especially when we get more fully opened back up. I think a lot of people would be surprised. Just how many wineries there are. I mean there's more than seven hundred across canada but the largest regions are ontario and british columbia on the west coast so in niagara which is really the largest of about three four. There's an fourth emerging region but it's the largest concentration and it's niagara on the lake and in this case the bench region which is still part of niagara and the reason that wind grows so well here. Wine grapes is that it's got the moderating effect of lake niagara which acts like a water bottle so the water stores up heat in the summer and then releases it through the winter so that the vines don't die from freezing over the winter so just moderating the temperatures and then in the summer. It's releasing more coolness so that the grapes don't roast in the summer And it's just a spectacular rejean because it's got lots of wineries to visit but there's also lots of great restaurants that are attached to wineries and other restaurants other things to do kid friendly to there's biking and ballooning and so on but i think people would be surprised just at the range of wines that are done and the quality pinot noir and riesling. I think do lead as cool. Climate grapes here but also unopened chardonnay cabernet. Franck is a big one here and gamay. Those would be the big ones. I'd say and of course we're known for icewine that tends to be something that people buy when they're here and then re gift relatives it's glorious. It put us on the map originally. But i think the dry still table wines are really worth trying and then we're also really good at sparkling wine because the traditional sparkling bland is pinot noir. Pino money chardonnay. We do those well so a lot of great bubbles here as well. Well my introduction to canadian winds course was icewind and i adore them. I think they are absolutely great. And if anybody who's going to reduce some icewind i'm your man senator early. I love them. And then i'm so excited to hear about the pinot noir and chardonnay peterman air coming on is the niagara he has some ontario has of four regions. And it's easy drive once you cross the new york border but there's sort of niagara which has all kinds of little sub appellations as well. Even more south is pay island and lake erie nor sure so far smaller region not as developed wine wise. Not as old as the vines are in niagara but exciting. New things are happening there then. East of toronto is an area prince. Edward county picton really exciting stuff happening here but against much smaller than the niagara region and then there's a few wineries around where i live in. Ottawa believe it or not. But that's really just starting to emerge fantastic model. That i can't wait. I would love to come and visit and maybe you could be my tour guide. Yes absolutely and i on. The menu is putting either tales or another delicacy at. Yeah we're gonna have to try all the things. Beaver retail beaver tails. Those are like these twisty pretzel things. We call them. Bieber tales real beaver tail owned. Shoot down on one of our national animals. He's not protected or endangered. But you know not tasty. But it's like a pretzel a giant pretzel in the shape of a beaver table. Thanks for clarifying that hebrew canadians doing. Wow we're gonna to this podcast on a weird note before. I let you go natalie. I have to say turnabout. My dear is fair play and you recently asked me what. I had the pleasure of appearing on your video cast. You'd asked me a very interesting question which took me by surprise. I hope i take you by surprise out alive or would you wanna share a bottle of wine with apples. And what would that be. Okay all right. Yes serves me right. It does but i do have an answer. Only because i was writing about her recently. She's no longer with us. But the veuve clicquot madame barbe nicole. Clico pulse out there who was young woman at age. Twenty eight who took over with clicquot champagne house when she lost her husband to. I think it was illness. She had an eight year. Old daughter clementine and she ran that business and arguably one of francis best luxury brands for more than sixty years at a time. When women weren't in business at all she got through the napoleonic blockade gutter wines over into the court of russia in time for the birth of the new czar so it became fashionable back. Then that was the instagram equivalent.

"I mean. I love it. I mean and the thing that i love actually is that there's different patterns like so you can choose the rain storm as your hey queue come on back to your breath or it can be like a wind sound and i actually love that talked. Let's talk about the birds because one of my one of my really good friends were like. Did you get any birdies today. I'm like no didn't get any birdies today. So tell me what the birds mean and and why some days you just can't get those birds are right so for people who are listening. The birds happen when you stand focused attention so when you're able to stand focused attention on your breath for five seconds or more you're going to hear a little bird tweeting and this becomes your sort of reinforcement for being in focused attention. It's a thing that's like. Yep you're doing it right. you're doing it right. Yep you're doing right hack now. The bird service really interesting role says some people who are listening might be like is this really what meditations about. Isn't it supposed to be like not goal directed. Aren't you supposed to be like you know not being told when you're right and wrong and meditation and so that's where the birds come in so when you focus your attention and you're able to be there in the right zone quote unquote the first time. You hear bird tweeting. You don't know what it is. You're like okay. That sound flooding. When you know that the bird is kind of a reward for doing it right you typically get really excited and then the bird flies away drought. Yeah yeah so. This is teaching another lesson in meditation called. Equanimity equanimity is the ability to non-judgmental accept. What is this is something that us. Teachers vary intuitively because when you get a bird and then you get excited about the bird and all like i need my reward niagara award. The reward just lies away. You're not doing it anymore when you get off frustrated that the wind is there. It's like you have a thought. And then the rain picks up. And you're like oh no the rain it's there. We'll just get stormy stormier in order to let the rain go away. What you need to do is simply accept that like the there was some rain. That's okay. I can just let that go on. Come on back to my breath. So the rain and the birds teach us this practice of equanimity not becoming invested in our rewards not becoming frustrated by our failures and simply accepting what is and moving on and sometimes on those days when you can't get birds because our brains are active and like that's case some days our minds are quote unquote stormier sundays. We have more going on and it's harder to do it and that is completely okay but when you start chasing the birds like i need my reward. Birds giving those not meditation anymore right. It's like give you those birds..

"Jeff let's breakdown some poker news and let's start right with the biggest story that happened last night. We actually postpone this episode one day so we could talk about this. And that is the high stakes dual round three while right. It's round two. but match. Three between daniel new infill. How news hellmuth had won. The first two he was looking to sweep agron you negroni was looking to have some redemption and save some face by finally defeating defeating how this was four. Four hundred thousand dollars in two hundred thousand dollars apiece and what happened man. I i mean it's just incredible. It's just this The phil hummy train continues to roland. Nobody can can stand in front of it. He sweeps antonio's fan. Dra wins through straight against him for fifty k. Person for one hundred k. Person for two hundred k person antonio loses his right to challenge fill chooses to stay stool. Boom we move on to high stakes tool to daniel Steps in the with all this heads up experience now after playing doug hold time and time and time again and cash none go but still negroni. The heavy favourite hell me wins round. One person how swings round to one hundred per cent and this week. Helmuth wins round three for two hundred k. A person it was almost the same script. Chad like we saw for the first couple rounds of high stakes tool to mcgraw nude jumping out to an early lead in super deep stack. Play mirani clearly at the edge. I think phil would tell you that as well so ground who had the lead helmi fought back. I think that you can say again. That helped me to get hit in the head by by the deck for sure there were plenty of times flop trips turned trips etcetera etcetera. Now with that said two things number one they got it in kings versus kings negroni one number to fill in one of the biggest parts of the night fairly early on when absolutely ham with eight. Three of clubs against niagara new and his deuces in agronomy saw something in phillips like he had a reader attell. That was weak. But phil followed through on this crazy blah. Ns got through so there's no doubt about it as an agronomy said at the end of the match. That phil hellmuth deserve to win. That he deserved to win high stakes stool to and that four hundred thousand dollars three hundred fifty camp profit. Well-done films what were your thoughts five betting five bedding with a after a suited like. Let's give this man some credit. I've been saying it for a long time. I'm a film fan even did antonio's family oury three in sweep. He got a ground. You want to three main. When when's poker will start giving him some of the credit that he deserves. And i like. We talked about in past episode. It was a win win situation as far as story lines. Go by a. I think this is a feather in the cap for helmut for sure and in kudos to you for pain him to complement and You know saying he deserved to win. It makes me wonder where this leaves. Negra new I listened to him on the debt. Khokar podcast every week. I love it. It's a great show how they recommended and in that you know even admitted that he's he was a little rattled by being beat the first two times and now he's been beat three times in who says he's playing the best poker of his career right now all the studying that.

Don't be results oriented but it does matter you could be the best. Ufc fighter as far as training goes in in pound for pound strength. But of you're not winning matches you are not a winner in in the ufc so in poker you have to be winning as well to be to be a winner in into gronya. Hasn't been doing a lot of this far now. I did say this tweeted it in. Negroni tweeted back. Saint he agrees. I think between the wpa summer online bracelets which are slated to start in one week.

It's the one that's shaped like a horseshoe like its name suggests and it's what comes to mind for a lot of people when you say niagara falls. Yeah it's impressive in persons. It's it does have sort of the iconic aspect to it. The area around niagara falls has been home to a number of iraq orient speaking indigenous peoples leading up to the seventeenth century. A confederation known as the neutral lived on what would become the canadian side of the river. And this name comes from the french describing them as neutral in conflicts between other iroquois nations and confederation so this is a guess it pronunciation because we couldn't find a clear one but the When roaring on or winrow lived on the other side and the neutral confederation and the wind row were allies until sixteen thirty nine after that a combination of wars epidemics and other factors led to both of them being dispersed by and absorbed into other iroquois tribes and nations. There are descendants of these people. Surely living still today but there's a whole complicated history of all the various iroquois and peoples that are not a monolith so some people wound up going completely different parts of the country other sort of made their way into other tribes and nations.

Free Agency 2021: Biggest Winners and Losers From Day One
"Who's the biggest winner from day. One the biggest winner from day one already told you it was. It was a my intro. You're listening great question. Jonnu smith out. It's cam newton. Well that depends kenyans a starter for sixteen games. That's right that's true. It's yeah okay. Potentially find jonah smith. Donald smith big contract with the patriots They invest heavily in him. You like this for him i do. I think you know Obviously the quarterback is the concern. But this is the scenario especially with the move that they made that we look for in fantasy as tight end could be the leader of the pack in terms of targets and opportunities and so look cam was not good in twenty twenty. If cam does start sixteen games in two thousand twenty. One greg olsen. During a five year stretch was pretty awesome of the top tier tight ends of the guys that we did. We talk about what he was in the next group you know. And so from twenty two thousand twenty sixteen. Greg olsen averaged a hundred eighteen targets a season seventy seven catches Decide one thousand yards and five times. Johnny could do that. One season estimate put them right around a top five tight end. Greg olsen was great and not only was he great but we also saw from cam newton in that stretch that he could give you greg olsen. Who could finish as a top eight tight in five straight seasons and give you a number to wide receiver in four of those five seasons three or four of those five seasons whether it was. Steve smith or kelvin. Benjamin and even ted ginn one year. So that's interesting. I'll afforded talking about that on the show tomorrow on the tuesday morning show and then of course we'll have a whole bunch of more news items to react to. Hopefully we'll get some kenny golladay news at some point on tuesday or maybe it'll happen later on monday night as record this at about nine fifteen eastern. Who's the biggest loser from day. One the biggest loser from day one on asking these questions before. I told you that we were starting with these egypt's before the show The biggest guys they ryan tannehill johnny smith and Us down smith and corey davis They're going to have to struggle to replace those guys Davis probably more. So the jonah just from the standpoint of what he was last year with his production number two receiver sixty five catches nine hundred plus yards and five touchdowns. So we'll see what they do in in in that in that regard but i think Tannehill you know. I had him as the number eleven quarterback. I dropped in the thirteen after today. Just because i think it was close between in my mind. Joe burrow and tom brady put them behind both those guys. Okay how 'bout jameis winston ryan tannehill right now. It's soom jameis winston as the starter. I still go. i think it'd be messy. You know. I can't situation we're taking those not blaming So i was hoping james would go someplace else and tastes hill. Would still be the guy with maybe a rookie or somebody. Young that they could groom continued. Just gonna to get you know too much of the mill package of james as the starter and if as milton starter. Davis is gonna play very much so it just feels like it be messy situation oil. Who do you like better. Corey davis with the jets nelson agholor with the patriots. I think adler is going to be bad. I don't trust the situation. You know i mean he. He had so many big. Plays for the raiders last year and he was so good for derek carr but he did that on eighty two targets. I don't think he gets eighty two targets with the patriots. He's going to do the same thing. So with what cam does running the ball with what jonah smith brings to the table with. What the rest of the receiving corps will look like if julian edelman on the team if he's healthy Nagla is going to be A guy that's not on many fantasy rosters middle of the season whereas corey davis could be the best receiver for the jets. I don't know if that's going to be the case. But i would take davis by far over niagara.
Interview With Douglas Hill
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today i have an absolute thrill we are talking with doug hill. Doug is a corporate photographer. A fine art photographer. His work has been all over the place. It's in magazines books. Catalogues it's at the j. Paul getty museum the library of congress the museum of photographic arts in huntington library. You know of course for his work at frames a very active member of the community. Doug welcome how's everything out in los angeles today. Thank you very much scott. It's a pleasure to be here today. It's probably seventy five degrees and sunny but we're on stay at home orders though. I'm stuck in the office at the moment. Oh th that's a shame because seventy five degrees and sunny out in los angeles. That's a photographer's dream. That's what everybody hopes for. You could get that beautiful light out there does. There is so much that. I wanna talk to you about your photography there. There's so much about this. That i find really impressive and enlightening but i got to begin at the beginning i i really wanna know. How in the world did you get from being you know the seven year old with instamatic up to a world class corporate and fine art photographer. I got started. I got my first series camera niagara matt and the reason that i got it was that i was going out with someone who was very interested in pursuing an acting career. And the well. Here's a perfect opportunity. I'll have a model someone that i can work with them. And start to figure out how the camera work then actually worked out pretty well straight off the bat and i had access to actors and actresses drew agents and producers and folks like that so i began doing head shots and i did that for several years but after awhile i began to burn out on. I certainly loved working with people but there was something about the process of shooting. That was kind of growing stale. So i started looking around for other things that i could do with a camera. I had been interested as a kid in architecture. Thought i might even become an architect at one point except that there was way too much math involved and I i got a four by five. Large format camera and began shooting buildings that interested me but didn't know what to do next with it so i started calling all of the architectural photographers. The serious ones in the area Maybe a dozen people. It was before the the field had really burgeoned. I call them all Asking if they need assistance most of them alike. We said no including julius schulman said nad on the internet system Recommended a guy named leeland lee who had been his assistant for a number of years especially through the period when julius was at the height of his powers and he said you talked to leland and i have confidence that that that may work out. I called leyland. Leland was gracious enough to say sure. Come on by. I showed him some of my work. He said well. This isn't very good Which was but i thought. Okay i'll i'll plough on. But he said you know what. I can use an assistant and you're welcome to to start doing that. If it interests you so it did very much. And i learned an incredible amount from him working with him in the first year that i got to know him and i started to pick up clients and found that i really enjoyed the work. I enjoyed working at a much. Slower pace It was hard work physical work. There's a lot more lighting. The cameras were larger and heavier. It required an attention to detail that i discovered i. I really enjoyed so. I stuck with architecture photography for many years at the same time. It's doing some fine art. I had gone to ucla and studied there. And and also cal arts. So i i was sort of on these two tracks one being the commercial architectural work and the other being fine art.

He moved with his family when he was four years. Old to new york. And eventually migrated appleton wisconsin in his youth. He was a natural athlete and had a fascination with magic and adopted the name. Houdini by adding an eye to the last name of his idol. French magician robert who din although there was a gimmick or special effect too many of his escapes. there were those at pressed him physically to the max one story a story mind. You is that of an underwater handcuff escape. Depending on who you talked to. He was in a box. A straightjacket or manacled hand and foot anyway. The story goes that he was in chicago in winter and had a hole cut in the frozen river that he stepped through not taking into factor that the river flowed under the ice easily escaped his manacles but was swept downriver. Above the shivering crowd eventually dispersed fearing that they had witnessed the drowning of the great magician under the ice. He moved from trapped air bubble bubble eventually finding his way out. There are dozens of versions of his story but whatever the case demonstrates his power of concentration. Above all harry. Houdini was a showman dangling from cranes. Skyscrapers upside down in a straitjacket. He would attrac- upwards of fifty thousand. Onlookers necks craned as they watched the dramatic escape. This would guarantee a pack theater that evening but he was always searching for a new effect. He's responsible for bringing the obscure thread the needle from india to the american stage. This is where he would placed dozens of needles in his mouth along with thread. Poss- drink a glass of water then amazingly extract needles threaded with enough threat to cross the stage later. He performed the same illusion with razor blades. Houdini was much more than a magician however he was a man with an insatiable curiosity and was fascinated with movies made several including one where he was to rescue the ever suffering female from iraq on the brink of niagara falls. She was harnessed to a safety line. Houdini would have none of the safety features offered and was nearly swept over the falls. He got out of the movie business because it didn't make money.

Pm tober thirty first. Nineteen twenty six. He was fifty two years old. He was a man who was driven. You might say by the slogan.

Check Ride Turbulence - Preparing for the Check Ride
"Up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good. This is a show that i think might blow off our top ten charts. Hopefully this is gonna be a new series that we're going to start doing every month called. Check ride turbulence. And that's a little bit of play on the words. Check ride and turbulence but these are going to be stories from flight school owner and a dp to make the check. Ride a little less bumpier to. We're gonna help people smooth those flights out and those check rides out And this week we're going to start with preparing for the check ride. And if you have check ride stories and that is you want us to do as part of this. Check rat turbulence every month show. Let us know this month is all about preparation for the check wally. I'm sure you've seen just about everything in your first four hundred and fifty check rides but on a scale of one to ten ten being the most prepared student that you've ever had that would have been me probably on the instruments. What would you say. The average level of preparation is for a check ride. I would say Somewhere around a seven so not bad right. Just a seventy percent is normally a failing grade right ryan so seven still not really really good right or professional pilots or people who wanna do something partake in something that could be dangerous. We want to shoot for better than seven. Yeah yeah good. I you know it's it it all goes to Preparation and at least with me I have an online scheduling system. If you if you book a check ride with me you're going to get a an email confirmation along with that email. Confirmation is going to be a letter It's the letter is is just over a page long and there's a lot of information on the ladder and if you use that letter. Basically as a checklist. You're gonna be in pretty good shape. I know several of the Other examiners here in houston use the same type of system. Where you you book it online and you'll get a confirmation What what i see is is the the m- farther out in advance that we can schedule a check ride and far farther out Before the check ride the student or the applicant is actually signed off in niagara. The better i would guess that. Probably fifty percent of applicants Before we even meet. I find some sort of missing something or other on the application the iraq application itself and it usually has to do with the flight times There's a little column off her class. Totals and it's Class totals and A lot of people miss that so Maybe it's a private pilot candidate. And they've got seven point nine hours of solo time and Or actually that'd be cross country. Let's say they got twelve hours of solo time. They should have in that class. Totals they should up twelve hours of of of single engine land. Pic time and a lot of times. They they missed. That and those are really easy things to fix. Because as i'm i'm sitting at home relaxing in the evening. I'm i'm looking a week ahead of time and i'm pulling up applications. I'm taking a look at things. And i'm i'm looking at the numbers on these applications and i see that it's real simple for me to go into my scheduling system and send you a text. Say i was looking at your application. I noticed she left out a column. I'm going to send it back to you right now and It's no big deal. It's no big deal. You know. I deal with akra daily I've i've dealt with it on on hundreds of applications and As a student pilot this may be your your second time to really deal with the i. Accra the first time being when you got your student pilot certificate. Now you're working towards your private and even the cfo is Extremely familiar with i acura. So i kind of know what things to look for. I'm looking for to meet the minimum requirements. Making sure there's three hours of inch talking about private. We're talking about parts sixty one Making sure there's three hours of instrument three hours a night time You know a lot of times you will see Then putting in the application that they have pic night landings which most of the time at this point The student pilot would not have that and Unless we're talking about Simulator time solo time plus dual time should equal total time so A lot of times. I'll see You know Tenth errors You know Twelve hours a solo time Fifty hours a dual time and total time of seventy two hours. Where would be sixty two hours so you know kind of make a A mental audit or a quick audit of the times to make sure they make sense. And again i would say probably forty five percent of the applications i yet before i ever even meet the applicant. i find some errors and we're able to fix that so that's probably the first thing and you know obviously if the application is done the day before sometimes it's not as easy to see those errors and then the morning of the check ride or the afternoon of the check. We're trying to fix these things. And i see the anxiety level on the applicant raising as they're dealing with this. They're they're thinking. Oh my gosh. I've made the examiner mad. Which isn't the case at all. I mean i just wanna get it right.

You're unlike a lot of areas in ontario and tender fruit story peaches pears. Yeah sorry and then great stars under fruit as well so that one that kind of were well-known for like a fruit belt and then because of these factors we can also grow more tender varietals merlot around over new blog That may not do as well in other parts of one tree hill just because simply were a little bit warmer and we have a little bit of a longer growing season and then also really important is that we don't necessarily always get the same temperatures in the winter that would drop down to like minus eighteen minus twenty and caused damage to the tender varietal though they become a little more risky and some of the other one -tario because they just are a little less winter hardy fact of just they're buying itself so great that really puts it into context in terms of where the different sub appellations are so many changes have happened this year. What are you looking forward to her. What do you anticipate in twenty twenty one. What are you doing more of what are you doing. Less of what changes do you expect. Or what's your outlook have positive outlook in a sense.

So that's something that we hope that carries through not just next year. But were ever really. I mean in the long term that can eating become very excited about an prideful of their wine. You know canadians are often known to not be a third of a proud type. And were a little bit. More shy and outstanding. We want canadians to be like the olympics. You know that was really exciting.

And let's just define that for somebody who might orders quality alliance via qa. Yes so qa does two things. One of the most critical aspects of it though is the guarantee of place of origin also quality seal. But i think that were jin especially in. These times is even more important to consider that this aaron tease or consumer that they are one hundred percent locally grown wines so all the fruit comes from ontario with you see and bq it and that's what talk more about that in terms of supporting the local industry when we talk about colds but in understanding like my early twenty just the idea of appellations i had done for wind studied and understood you know in italy. They have the do they llc and in france and it isn't overwhelming and confusing topic if people try to understand the french word terrar- and appalachian like what does that mean and for me this story really defined it. We were driving down concession. One and i went. Oh papa look at the binds. I can't even believe it. We were heading towards the ball and on the right hand side. All the binds were starting to brown. And they're not producing anymore and on the left. They were still green and the weeds. And i said that's like unbelievable. And he said oh yeah he goes well you know. Think about it appalachians ab- appalachian really. That's the place and he had done a lot of work on mapping the different regions in growing areas in ontario. And just to see that difference of that spot one kilometer from the river where the low of the air no longer continued past and it just happened to be a long concession. One that you could see the difference so it was just the distance of a road like on one side. It was so dramatically different. That really goes every to light are really illustrates the whole idea of appalachians and they talk about in france. Just how a few meters can make the world of difference. Yeah i think of this analogy to. Sometimes when i'm trying to understand appalachian so the big appalachian is like those russian dolls. You know one inside the next so they say the big appalachian is ontario within that. We could drill down to niagara then. We can drill down to niagara on the lake then.

S. government had like wasted money overseas like to the Afghan war for example I have over three administrations that bush trump and Obama really you know on paper buildings in paper helicopters and tanks and all that so my thing is if America's got all this money to you guys you know we saw that the you may be better suited giving the American citizens that he BRI well all right let's go regardless of getting off of his own foreign policy discussion and we simply ask professionally if if Andrew young the former democratic presidential candidate to have a good idea it almost sounds like we're we're doing a very end of that now with this twelve hundred dollars for each person although it's not a permanent program the doctor Lee well it's it's a resource allocation I think the the money each person I think I think the policy neither of the vehicle policy that Saddam is handy at the moment powers of the apologies about Neil I think the power of the golden she's the kind of sequence and we're gonna factor because he just made like three months three weeks ago and we try to be so great because you found the right hi but when you cut interest rate your practice dinner last night hi everybody stayed home and how can you see my soul you want to cut interest rate the property after you gradually open collar manifesting production so tiny all the monetary policy supporters the only policy when the government expenditure increase will also help you make a demand well we'll help you so you can recover so one of the mistakes we learn from the past of all the sessions use that researching the problem actually cut spending that will cost me section for example after World War two the government spending suddenly decry culture is such a big recession what what to do but I think we can all agree doctor lead if we write enough hot checks we can certainly stimulate the economy I suppose the the follow up question would have to be is that sustainable in the book because somebody has to pay you want the government needs to probably going to show up on how to get the money to to how do you cut two hundred dollars each so all of that is not suitable for shorter temporarily we need that money to stimulate the economy and that we will be calling you come back then we will deal with its usual care so that it will be part of the show's so called the federal taxes in this country we have a two major deficit widens the federal budget deficit and why is the fact is that there's two issues the longtime officers do most of what I will make the that is a much worse than simply as that of course and again as long as we keep passing it on to our kids and grandkids in countries like China Japan and Saudi Arabia he really gets out the question of course is how long will they keep bailing us out I mean we are desperately trying to turn our country into Greece which is not easy to do were very powerful economy but we've been working at tearing apart its foundation now for several generations so if we work at it hard enough it will be possible to destroy this economy well the federal deficit that's a lot of traditional university years long people they will reach one of our popular anymore I think the reason is because the global economy global economy continues to expand saliva can be speaking in terms of a percentage of the world thank you thank you show actually not a bad bad in terms of percentage because the the GDP continued to expand so the the budget package that actually but the problem has been discussed on a month to live in twenty years ago let me ask you this is there not a point beyond which this is dangerous to continue have it's not the current twenty three point seven trillion dollars then what about thirty what about fifty what about a hundred trillion is there a point beyond which we actually have to stop that that leads straight into Canadian dollars compared with the old old GDP it's about a ten percent and the people look at this amounts to the seats of the largest amount ever however you feel competent QB one kill you to commiserate all the street who is active you have to actually live more than two trillion dollars and then right now the real GDP are you sloppy around twenty trillion dollars total trillion dollars above ten percent although I understand that the two trillion that is a short term necessity but I just meant that I'm talking I guess just briefly here about the deficit spending in general and as I said our current total national adapt is twenty three point seven trillion dollars isn't there a limit if it's not twenty three is it thirty is that fifty is a hundred trillion there has to be a point beyond which that just can't continue I would think but point actually the difficult to determine it's just like a person like you owe twenty thousand dollars twenty thousand dollars the leveraged and some people each person out of the building to decry thank you to country bother leaving these different sample some of the countries like Japan we also have a like a two hundred percent of the facts you can go to their GP but should we we try to find out what it is I mean it seems like kind of a perilous course how close to the edge of the Grand Canyon can I tap dance before I fall over I mean I we seem bound to determined to find out just exactly how far we can go and I'm just not sure that's wise but what do you have a good point obviously there should be a limit the harbor economical we also have a concrete goals so in the short term we have to start up a whole right now the first product of popularity guys always who deals with the sessions actually I agree that the two the two trillion dollars that's where that's necessary the twenty three point six and we are held up probably it's probably not enough no it's not enough I would agree is not enough but the the twenty three point six of the part I'm talking about is that we've been doing this as a matter of course without a national emergency for generations now that's the part that I I have a problem we are overdue for a break which we do have to take it will be back with more for my guest doctor ten
