"Global shortage in computer chips reaches crisis point. And i really wish that they would just break more into what's actually going on behind the scenes. I get it maybe to some extent. We might not actually know what's going on. But let's hop on into the articles. He what's up. Consumers are facing price rises and shortages of products from. Tv's mobile phones to cars and game consoles as a global shortage in. Semiconductors grows shortage in chips. The brain with an electronic device in the world has been steadily worsening since last year now. Initially the problem was only temporarily in supplies. Factories shut down when the pandemic i hit however although production is back to normal a new surge in demand driven by changing habits fueled by the pandemic means that now is reaching a crisis point car manufacturers investing in tech heavy electric vehicles. Which is okay. I'm just going to make a point to some extent stupid. Gopher hybrid the boom in sales of tv's in home computers launch new game consoles five g. Mobile phones have all driven demand. So we know that demand has been going on an increase to like crazy stupid level that we haven't seen before even a mighty apple a two trillion dollar company in the world's biggest buyer of semiconductors spending fifty eight billion annually was forced to delay the launch of much hyped iphone twelve by two months last year due to the shortage in one of the reasons. Chips are everything says neal camping media in tech analyst at mehrabad. There's a perfect storm of supply and demand factors going on here but basically there is a new level of demand that can't be kept up with everyone is in crisis and it's getting worse for recently canceled shift at two car.

While chip shortage looks set to persist for some time yet. It up the two years to get complex semiconductor production factories up and running and manufacturers are in process of significantly raising prices for the second time in less than a year is no sign of supply catching upper demand decreasing while prices are rising across the chain so economically. What does this mean means. Less supply obviously unable to meet demand and prices. Go up because of it. Because that's kind of the only counterbalance that you have to be able to balance everything taken an economics course at the basic level. How things work. So what exactly is going on. It could be that. There aren't enough factories able to produce enough of a supply of semiconductors. One thing i'm wondering though is are there enough materials to be able to construct it. I mean semiconductors aren't really the easiest to make their actually quite complex quite exact in its production of it not to mention you also need to have trained individuals who know how to do it.

"First up. Packers say they breached over cada accessing the feeds of one hundred and fifty thousand surveillance cameras inside clinics police precincts jails schools even cloudflare's offices and tesla facilities. The hackers say they also have access to the full video archive of all cada customers. Today i learned that verekauta is a startup that sell security cameras that customers can access from the web in its last funding round. It raised eighty million dollars at one point. Six billion dollar valuation quoting bloomberg. The data breach was carried out by an international hacker collective an intended to show the pervasiveness of video surveillance and the ease with which systems could be broken into said tilly cottman one of the hackers who claimed credit for breaching the san mateo california-based ver- cada cottman who uses they and then pronouns previously claimed credit for hacking chipmaker intel and carmaker nissan cottman said their reasons for hacking our lots of curiosity fighting for freedom of information and against intellectual property a huge dose of anti-capitalism and a hint of anarchism. And it's also just too much fun not to do it and quote cottman said. Their group was able to obtain root access on the cameras. Meaning they could use the cameras to execute their own code that access could in some instances allow them to pivot and obtain to the broader corporate network of ver- catis customers or hijack the cameras and use them as a platform to launch future attacks obtaining this degree of access to the cameras didn't require any additional hacking as it was built in feature cottman said. The hackers methods were unsophisticated. They gained access to through a super admin assistant allowing them to peer into the cameras of all of its customers. Cohen said they found a username and password. For an administrator account publicly exposed on the internet after bloomberg contacted ricotta. The hackers lost access to the video feeds archives. Cottman said the hack quote exposes. Just how broadly we're being surveilled and how little care is put into at least securing platforms used to do so pursuing nothing but profit cottman said.

Lady Gaga's dog walker shot, French bulldogs stolen in LA

"On their story. Gunman Shot Lady Gaga is Dog Walker and stole two of the singer's Bulldogs ABC Jason Nathan Seuin joining us on the co Moh news line with more on this attack, and this sounds like a scene out of a Hollywood movie. Yet it did happen for real in Hollywood, Jason It really did happen. This was Wednesday night. Her dog, Walker was walking the dogs Ryan Fisher or dog Walker and assistant walking the three dogs in West Hollywood. When a car pulls up a white car pulls up to people get out. That there on the sidewalk here. One of them has a gun. They start to try to steal the dogs. There's a struggle going on. They get two of the dogs, and then one of the people shoots Ryan Fisher in the chest. Jump in the car take off with two of the dogs. One of the dogs who had apparently gotten away comes back to Fisher and his kind of hanging around Fisher while he's lying on the ground, calling for help pleading for somebody. Anybody To come help him, Hey says, I've been shot in the chest and bleeding my lungs or bleeding. It's really kind of gripping and chilling video and audio that's on TMZ that they have from security camera from one of the neighbors. The two people they take off and gaga now offering a $500,000 reward for the return of the dogs. She's not in the country. She's in Rome, but she is obviously beside herself wanting the dogs back. What do we know about the dog walkers? Condition? He's going to survive that we don't know exactly. You know what kind of condition what level but that he's I've seen reports that he's doing well to reports that he's you know, in the hospital and They're working on him. But as far as we know that he's going to survive this if they've got surveillance video what? What does it tell us about the the Attackers of the car, the vehicle they used for the weapons. It's a white they're thinking Nissan Sentra the gun. I've seen this. It is a semi automatic. Looks like a handgun to me. They don't get it clear license plate on the video. But there might have been other video that they're looking at. And the police are obviously looking into this. And what we don't know is is this was she targeted? What were these dogs specifically targeted Because There are Lady gaga as dogs, and they thought that they could either get more money or get a reward from her for that, Or is this part of a larger trend that we've seen of dogs, specifically pure bred dogs? French Bulldogs being high on the list? Of dogs being stolen. You know, the economy's bad people are looking for money in any way they could get it and stealing dogs has become a big thing. We've seen a couple incidences and here in Los Angeles and San Francisco, other areas in California because they can get big money for these dogs. Now, these dogs in particular are now two of the most famous dogs in the world. Their pictures are everywhere so I imagine it would be pretty hard for the thieves to sell these particular pops. In addition to the reward, have we heard from Lady Gaga? Jason? No, we haven't. We know that she's wanted to get the word out about the dogs, and that she she's created an email address for people to send information, she says no questions asked. But So far in social media. She's been silent on Instagram Twitter. She hasn't said

Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground

"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

Jamie Bristow Talks About Developing Agency In Urgent Times

"Our guest today is jamie bristowe jamie. Welcome to the podcast. Glad to have you here. I need to be here so we're gonna talk about a few different things today. One will be the mindfulness initiative and want to hear more about that and then in particular one of the documents that your group has recently published. But i'd like to start by just helping the audience get a little bit more understanding about you and your background with mindfulness. Okay So i've been the director of the mindfulness initiative sort of work backwards if that's okay and so i've been the director of the mindfulness initiative which is like a policy institute think tank working with politicians primarily in the uk but also around the world for getting on for six years And i've been working in the mindfulness field. I guess for a few years more than that. I was the business. Development director had space Back in the days when has faced with like seven people in five desks north in london rather than the big Sort of global brand. That has become today and previous to that. I was trying to find my way into sharing. I learnt myself huge impact. It had them how to my life. I was lucky enough to Learn to meditate. When i was a student at university so i was a fresher. Eighteen years old and didn't think much of it was just like another experience like join only different societies to try. Try out different. Things ultimate frisbee or amateur dramatics. Meditation was just like one of those things along for like. Oh wow i can. I can close my eyes radically alter my subjective experience just by applying myself that's cool And then kind of forgot about it because there were so many other exciting things to and dive into well. I knock him dipped in and out of it but it wasn't until i had my first like graduate graduated job. I was a young advertising executive. Just really going to be graded advertising and I was working on like a nissan misano. Nissan is he saying this in the states at the time like descending. suv's essentially and I was really stressful. Like i'm struggling to concentrate. The lifestyle was cheering me up to an extent and so i really at that point started to really invest in it rather than being in thing. I did now again. Became a regular practice. And i as it's been charted in the academic literature people often start for self-regulation benefit. You know for me. It was it. Was the attention thing like i needed to i. I as a kid i was. Add at the end of the spectrum so i Got myself regulation benefit. I could concentrate but then it then you know develops center from self regulation to self expiration and then like wow. There's much more to me. And to and to life. I guess than i thought that was and then moving on from that to self transcendence of because if the final of the three raises the phases. The one one paper has charted. And sure i started practicing for reasons other than myself I'm that she had the advertising world wasn't wasn't right for reasons. The myself is So i left. That world went into climate. Change campaigning And through that like realize. What a piece of mindfulness was for me in making that journey from sending. Suv's to selling responsiveness to climate climate crisis And and so yet. That's that's why. I find my way into doing what i'm doing now. Really the kind of social implications of widespread contemporary give a practices. Jimmy thank you so much for that background. And it's it's fascinating to hear different ways. Each person may find some value in this that we might be brought to it for a particular reason. Focus and then. It's oh my there's more stuff here to hearing about your time in head space. Andy putty comas. One of the first interviews. I did another pug guests many years ago before it got really really big. And so with that you've had this practice that's been part of your life that has been beneficial transformative to you and then along came in some fashion. The mindfulness initiative. How did that get started. While i was working head space at the time and i was invited by chris. Colin who's leading teacher at oxford. Mindfulness center and i'm teaching politicians in the british parliament From he and mark williams from about two thousand and his spring two thousand and thirteen a year or so later. Those who who. Who had been on a mindfulness course started to become interested in the science behind what they've found and what the policy implications might be. Because often you know when you find that it's really helping you know about is. How do i get this.

"Car cast for twenty percent off your first order. That's chemical guys dot com slash car cast so and then we saw the nissan. Sorry what is he the araya too many. There's too many names. So this is how many names the araya is their their newest electric vehicle. Sort of a an suv. I don't know it's more of a crossover than it is a full. Suv but it's a medium size. Suv you know they they. They kind of made their bones on the nissan leaf. Did some experimenting with that and put that out there very early on this is the next. It doesn't replace the leaf by their their next iteration into this is a decent sized vehicle. It's it's actually really nice and when you get into it it's gonna have to battery options and to drive options. What i mean by that is a sixty three kilowatt. An eighty seven kilowatt. You can get a either as front wheel drive or all wheel drive. And i believe the all wheel drive. Version is two motors on the front one in the back so the range will be up to three hundred miles. That's what they're going after. And when you when you look at something like audi audi e tron and jagger pace they come in or somewhere like to await or to ten and two thirty or two sixty on the range so three hundred is a good number granted with the larger battery. But i don't think the small battery is going to be. It's not going to be less than two hundred so it's gonna be good. This is also going to come in and around forty thousand dollars. Yeah i'll tell you. There's a nice thing that they showed us the other night when we're looking at it which the the console moves forward and back electronically sort of where you put your right arm. When you drive you can adjust it. You can dial it in. Its it's electric and it slides back and forth. It seems like a novel idea of really works. If you're really tall and you put your seat back or short move forward. Yeah you know when your hands on the track pad or on the arm. Rest your off a little bit but now you can move that thing now. They can do that because because it's all electric. The the floors are flat. The batteries are flat underneath. And there's no bumps in it. There's no transmission tunnel right and so there's plenty of legroom and you can move that console front and back which is really cool. Yeah it has two screens. I forgot what they were. Maybe twelve point three inch screens. And of course it's gonna come with all the latest technology car play an android and all that What it has there there. Are thomas driving system. That are pro pilot to point out now. Nothing's really fully autonomous but similar to tesla's mode. You can use the key. Fob creep the car forward or back or put in a parking spot. That kind of thing yeah. It's it's interesting i. It's a kind of car. I mean i would drive that car every day. I absolutely would. it's going to be. It's going to be quick. The large battery all wheel drive versions probably going to be zero to sixty five seconds and three hundred mile. Range is pretty good. And what's interesting is when it's plugged in in your garage you can. You can teach it to know when you're going to work in the morning or when you're whatever you to an event every day you're going and you can program the car to turn on the air or turn on the heat or whatever but not use the battery in the car because it's plugged into your wall so you leave every morning at nine. Am you can say hey at ten to nine just start warming it up for me start cooling it down for me and it just plugs right into the wall and uses that the cars are they have so much stuff on. I'm now like they've all become like my television remote. Which one hundred and eighty-one buttons on it. I used three of them. I have no idea what the other one hundred seventy eight do and i would never get the full potential. You'd have to come set that car. I was just driving around my my infinity wagon full of four wheel drive low and have no idea because at the center the still doing that weird you gotta program. It's doesn't honk the horn when you turn the stupid when you put the yeah alarm on. It drives me nuts. Because it's like every time i pull into the garage and i locked the car. It's like i'm telling everyone i'm home. We heard you pull out because it hawks retired adams here what it is because we switched cars. You got the the newest q x eighty infinity. And it's great. Well the three honcker is when you leave the keys in the car okay. I think that's but it doesn't always do it but sometimes it does it when you leave the keys in the car. Yeah well that makes sense. That don't leave your key in the car thing that i get but sometimes it does it when you have your keys. So it might. Maybe there's a communication issue. Maybe there's a key in the glove compartment. Maybe there's like a valet key and the about the the thing about the honk when you turn when you lock the car. You should have to set it to that. You shouldn't have to undo that the default should be cars locked and then if that somehow annoys you or you're not you don't if you're disoriented like did i lock my car. I don't know i didn't hear sound then. You could set it to that right sure. What a lot of cars you hit it once. It quietly locks the doors and you can kind of hear. The door's locks you know but then if you hit it again. Dental honk right. So it's a double click. It was kinda funny yesterday. We were we met up here. We were going to the nissan event. And adam said hey this got the new x eighty crimes a little rough a little weird. It just feels a little plows. It just feels a little chunky plows at low speed when you're turning pulling out of a driveway or earning in their driveway. Yeah and it just turned out the dial on the dash was turned to like four wheel. Low like off road mode and without doing it. You wouldn't even notice it you know i wouldn't have noticed it. I would have felt the same thing but you said something is going on so i started looking and and and i remember you know you you put you put a dog in the car and the dog is always like the glove. You know the the trap door on your on your cigarette lighters always opener or the heated seats. Go on and on because there's pause going everywhere like this could be fill like the blame fell. I don't mess with that. Because i don't really know what it does. And it's not my thing. But i could have easily turned that the other knob or whatever but it seemed like a good news is not broken works fine and world four wheel low by the way it works. Fine ever explained pyrite. Should we dude spot. Yeah so. Pick our break dodge. We all know that dodge means horsepower. And we talked about dodge ranking number one for initial quality and dodge has been named the automotive company with the best driver.

"The four hundred z is going to be right but it's the three liter. It's a three liter. Turbo twin turbo. And this is the engine that is basically in the infiniti. Q fifty and the sixty and three hundred horsepower and four hundred horsepower trim so naturally this seems like it should be around that four hundred horsepower mark You know it could be four hundred but it could be three eighty before ten. It can be somewhere in that mark. I forget what the current car is three thirty three thirty five something like that. So it's going to have to be a bump onto that but also we saw the car now in person and standard manual transmission optional automatic transmission rear wheel drive And it's good. It looks good. Yeah it's not a. It's not a big departure from the former shape the z. But they took some of the things that you probably didn't like about the former version of the z. And they just sort of clean them up. Sort of made them better they. They did against seeing the car in person. I think what they did is they may have some new photographs as well because the original set of photographs didn't show the lines as well as as they should have. Everything was kind of rushed into is a you know to get to get that. Launched on on video and we talked about thanks chris. We talked about how. Thanks chris on online when they did the livestream debt. Bright yellow came off just so bright like day. Glo yellow tough to kind of see the characteristics of the body. And there's a lot you know. There's there's certain creases in the hood. And the double bubble above the driver and passenger and the light bucket area to sort of give it a little bit of that bucket of scoop. Look to buy just shaping the body in the shape of the lights And then. I can't stress this part enough. It's really tough to see the character of the front end the grill of the front end in the photos. It just looks like a big black rectangle and when you get up on it it it has different shapes to it has different depths to is well on the top of the grill. Comes out a little further underneath. That grillo sunken soon when you really get up on it and see the car in person. It's it's cool. It's got some good lines. I still think we should see other colors and thank goodness there. Everybody out there is done renderings. It seemed hours. After the debut in nashville. There was a rendering all over the place for that car But when you were starting with the digital file that didn't have a lot of the lines and characteristics. It was tough to do the renderings with decreases in the hood. Yeah it's it's nice interiors. Nice so many cars are nice. Now cars work. They're nice. they're like thoughtful. It's it's really a good time to be enthusiasts or just even a good time just a. It's a good. You know when i was poor essentially a and you know all the guys i were just kinda working class guys and nobody never drove a pickup truck and stuff. There is nary a new. A newish camaro -mongst us like there was nobody. We know you would know somebody by their car. Like if one dude had newish camaro would know who that guy was. I mean i knew a guy headed had a vw. Golf or something or gti or something. That was a big deal. Yeah he's got he's got a car. It's gonna put rims on it. This is a big deal and it was like. I don't know everyone thought his parents must be rich. He's got a car like no one had a new car. Nobody errands car nothing. Nothing really worked. And there's so much good stuff. I mean you take you. Think about think about this. Everybody who works for me. I don't pay him much. You know everybody that works for me. Drives something decent. I mean it it. All works all has air conditioning and power windows and sirius. Xm radio when it all. There's never you know you can't use screens and carplay and android auto fell standard. Now you use if you had a built in excuse if you ever wanted to get out of work from for me from like zero to thirty five you just go our cars that just go. I walked down the driveway. One an attorney king nothing. Yeah and then. that's it. You can use that excuse anymore now. Not really well the stuff. I drive twenty five years old. So it's still the same power stereo line. Blue started in work right or he's dead my stuff his old. But everything's good new is pretty good. I think you guys are gonna like this car. I would say for nissan because this thing is a factory turbo car now. There's so much potential. It's going to be modified. Everyone's going to modify the car to the extent. That nissan had built a strong short block in this engine. You know if it's if it doesn't have you know like a faulty oil pump like a plastic gear instead of a metal gear and you gotta replacing scott good pistons and and because now with a little tuning. If this thing comes in around four hundred horsepower a little tuning. Inner cooler upgrades maybe turbo upgrade. We wanna see five fifty horsepower out of this thing when it's pretty thought a little bit and if it can handle that horsepower. That's going to be a huge win for nissan. The right yeah. I'm sure the bottom and can handle five hundred fifty horsepower. No problem transmission the dif- if it can band that up. I think i think it can the question. Is you know at a certain point..

"Today so I talked to troy information about the two hundred sacks and what it's going to take and what it needs and. The. Answer is as it needs everything. I. Was going to say a lot was his answer. It's always at the end of the emails like but they're seven dollars worth of parts on it we could probably sell. All right. Well, that'll be sweet. Yeah. So. It needs a change in. L. Series. With the F. I.. A head. The F. I had is kind of a big deal on the L series motors. Think. I have an F. I had on my six ten. I'm almost positive I do So Motor and all. That stuff. Really the real money's in the body the body you five grand worth of do the body. Other than that seems pretty. Pretty, straightforward and. Twenty five grand for the body before you start painting putting stickers on it. This is unclear somewhere down the invoice it says pain. Right So. You know and you try to think to yourself like what is that? What is the value of that car Like what is that car like it's got? It's got history. It's Tom Cruise history, but as we know. Sometimes, that's neither here nor there in in that world. But. It does have the sharp livery which is kind of coming up. You know what? I mean the the I think the Bob Sharp, the cars with the Bob Sharp livery are becoming more coveted. Yeah. A little rare and people are starting to see. What Bob sharps contribution was to that to Dotson and that and motor sports. And there's no reason why they shouldn't. I'm clearly his his partnership with Newman Newman sort of overshadowed Bob sharps. Involvement for for the most part. But Bob Sharp is should be I don't know just. Looked at every bit as as as a P. Brock would be when it comes to. The Datsun Nissan racing. Well of other stuff as well but he did a bunch of other stuff but but bob was a very successful racer. Yeah. So he has a lot of like driver of the year and and that kind of stuff I know 'cause he gave it to me, I got the steering wheel in my garage. Portrait portrait. Giant. Bosch are portrait boy I. Tell You man that cleans out he cleans. Hey. Didn't want that. So you know. So he was a celebrated in a in a good driver, I don't. And I don't Wanna I don't WanNA sell them short but I don't think he had a lot of international or sort of big game stuff. He had a lot of regional local and maybe national. But what I'm saying is is take a guy like John Morton and it's like, yeah, he drove all the. Stuff but that guy drove a Ferrari at. Allama. That guy was in a Ferrari five twelve or something Lamont that guy's done la like seven times that guy's name on any car that's been to twenty four hour Daytona are see bring John Morton's names on the side of the car. You know I don't think sharp. Got Into. That But I don't know but I don't have a recollection of it. I'm not sure why. He never sort of said, we're going to Daytona. You. Know what? I mean, right? But Still a celebrated driver and a winning driver and. Put together a real first class team I, mean that guy up semi trucks with cars that were just superior products to the other cars then break a lot. Fizi. As a driver, very successful driver on his team. As. Well, Yan. It's unclear Fizi I don't think Fizi was like a Daytona, Lama seabourn guy either maybe they just sort of kept it. Kept it on this one level this one scale. Yeah. Now he was for a stint or maybe initially Tom Cruise's instructor right sharp said. Fits, he's GONNA teach how to drive down a road Atlanta. The AD. Let's. Teach you how to drive. How that work well. Again by by all accounts. Tom Cruise who just launched himself strapped to the top of a missile to outer space ten minutes ago. Yeah. You got a picture a twenty six old version of that guy. Yeah. Whether it's fucking wife up in the stands. So Tom. Look I know these guys I know who these guys are. They are. The reason I know. Is because I used to be a boxing coach and there was more than one occasion when I was doing a private lesson or whatever, and I would I would spar with the client and I would I would give them instructions before we start. You know here's how you do it. Here's how we keep it at this level and Blah Blah Blah. Most guys could do it. Some guys were incapable of doing they start throwing haymakers immediately couldn't yeah and you'd stop and go hey, hey, it's GonNa live control destroy huge overhand, right? It's not forms bad not. We're here to do that just bring it in, bring it down a couple of notches and they go oh yeah. Sorry and they start again they throw haymaker. Now. I. I've worked around a lot of those people. I have a lot of people in my life. Yeah. It's just as our inability whatever's inside you just sorta takes over and so. By all accounts. It seemed that crews had skill. Yeah and it seemed like you know he was learning from from fifty and I think he had a win in the car. But I think that thing would come out in him and nobody no team owner once that guy driving his car that thing where it comes out, you know what I mean and so he was too too too aggressive I think and he got himself in trouble and Mimi Rogers at the time his wife said like that's that's enough of that right now I understand it that he is a very good a. Fantastic precision driver on on movie sets. Now sort of honed his skills by the way went back to Bondra and a bunch of times and just constantly trained, and you know he's all about doing the stunts and he's all about getting the camera angle and the you know to get the camera angle of somebody driving aggressively you want that person to be driving aggressively and he's done a lot of that and I don't know I I don't know what that means for him. If he got back into a racing car was competitive. Situation. I think he could probably handle the car pretty well, these days. There's no doubt about it. And although there obviously, they're kinda separate. Animals the you know stunt driving I think what happens is. Those Who knows he's matured slowdown whatever whatever it is the days go to. Is slowing down. There some people that when you put a few cars around them and a few cars ahead of them. They just Dr Diving into corners and stuff like that. Just that's who they are and that's why he is who he is. So it with all the skill, there's no doubt. The skills there the question is it's a sort of mentality. Can you pay yourself? Can you know I don't think Newman. Judging from some of Newman's moves on the track he didn't appear to have a lot of patience either. Right. But when you start to think about Newman versus cruise, what is the value of a Newman car versus a cruise car and what you have is both raced both celebrities both. Successful actors. Newman had a lot of success as a racer. So his cars have. Value for his celebrity and his success newman or a cruise. Not a successful racers only out two years not a very successful racer so The car is value. Valuable because of his celebrity and a little bit because he wasn't successful he was only out there for a limited amount of time. So now there's not. Forty crews cars out there. Really any crews cars out there that I can tell and there's a little newman a little of Newman's stink rubs off a little of it because you know he was there at all those races and probably yeah, you know sat in the car at least there's a little thing and the sharp livery, the kind of sharp. Sharp. Gets you back to Newman to a little bit. Well, those are essentially, yes. Those are bonuses to the value of this car but it you know look for good or bad. It feels a little bit more like memorabilia than it does racing car history. But what I do like is like what you and I talked about you know what? Cruises a part of the story and we have a Tom cruise racing suit and we have a Tom Cruise Helmet and we've got some photos with him and fitzy a newman altogether having the car finishes up that collection that point in in cruises life right and I think I think they go well together. I think they're all more valuable together the car with a mannequin, a tiny mannequin with with a with his racing suit and helmet on and a glass case looks fantastic. Yeah I. I concur. So we'll We'll move forward and. See where it goes but..

The garage I don't right now I've had in the past I've had a to forty. I was in the publishing business out of Grad School and had a company car, which was a two eighty Z X. Turbo I lived in Denver Colorado. It snows in Denver an incredible amount I had to put illiterate in the back because that car just went nuts in the snow but that was my company car, which was wonderful. Car I also had three. Hundred. Z X. I worked for Steve Millen before work for Nissan, it was the fact that I worked for Mellon that got me hired by Nissan. We built a tribute car for the Twenty Fifth Anniversary Nissan Z which we call the SM Z. had a different aerodynamic look and big breaks your tires. It really was a nice nice car and I had Z. then three. I don't have one now but I really would like to get one of the new Z's that comes. Out What am I right now at sixty three corvair, which is the one that was in a movie called Zodiac bought that from the studio I've got a sixty five ranchero just Tristan got a sixty five thunderbird special landau sixty, six, Mustang convertible and I have a seventy three triumph tr six and then I, have a two thousand fifteen Camaro who says in an Audi alr- boy you've got quite a stable there and there's a Lotta great American iron fellow WHO's an expert. On. Japanese. Cars I. Think you're definitely waving the flag for General Motors and a little bit of Ford here and there I know that's a nice collection of cars, and of course, the corsairs is a of an outlier another car that doesn't get all the respect due for being such a forward thinking design I loved the Corvair my dad had a corvair. So I'd love rear engine cars yet to Renault Dolphins. Oh. Good heavens boy you don't see those on the road anymore. corvair. So I don't know why he liked rear engine cars but then I ended up by one too because they are fun to drive. That's why. There's nothing more fun and sometimes surprising than the rear engine car. But when it comes to classic looks and style I think it's hard to beat the to forty especially when you put it in the context of the early seventies and see what was happening to automotive designs. Then you can put that car up side-by-side with any type or any Ferrari from the era and it stylistically really. Does hold its own a great testament to a company that took a hell of a chance with a market that had no idea were coming. Oh I. Agree. It was a gamble but it really paid off I want to talk about your book for a minute peed because your book is really a cut above in the reign of automotive books it's beautifully designed by the way it's not Only well, laid out put. It's really unattractive design aesthetic. When it comes to the information man, you drill deep for anyone who wants to know literally the nuts and bolts of the C- car history. Your book has it. It really goes deep into the crevices and pulls out all the little goodies that would probably otherwise never be told and someone who's been involved with Nissan for quite a. While I appreciate that I love cars. I have always loved cars since I was a kid and to be able to be in the automotive business for as long as I have been was just a dream of mine. I started my automotive journey back in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five working for CCA A and then I had a stint working for selene helping him market and sell his. mustangs then I left after his indycar program exploded and I went to work for Ford and did some work for them that got me at Boban, durant and I worked at his school I performance driving and Phoenix right when he moved there and spent three years there then got hired on at Steve Melons and that got me into Nissan, and after that I worked in the advertising business. and. Then became a teacher. So I've had a very diversified career but writing has been fundamental to all of that. I teach writing. Now teach writing for advertising, teach copywriting I, teach marketing, but being able to follow my passion has absolutely critical. That's a great career arc from sec a motorsport advertising really kind of covers the gamut when it comes to cars, you mentioned the fact that the. Spiritual Guide all this you talk Katayama, Mr K. relived to be honored five. So he did something right his signature autograph was always Love Cars Love People love my boy if I could take a little piece of that and apply that to my own life I would be so grateful amp. So grateful be able to have written this book and I thank the folks in motorboats from getting. This. Opportunity in the folks at Nissan for letting me put into words compassion that they have with this car and celebrate it. But that to me is important to a writer and Jewish person like I said was passionate about cars as I am I live in the dream thanks to Pete have an author of Nissan Z fifty years of exhilarating experience for joining us today on cars that matter.

He broke cover at an extraordinary press conference in Beirut where he called out former colleagues and and the entire Japanese justice system innocent of the charges. If he thinks he's innocent he should be in the Japanese in Israel and nothing about Carlos and has ever been ordinary. Seems like he was always destined to do something in the car industry. There are reports that as a young boy. He was able to distinguish different types of cars from the sound of their horns from the Guardian. I'm an Gristana today in focus.

Yeah because it was like a quarter of the price of like Lamborghinis and Ferraris and was faster and now There's so many cars that have launched control but when this car debuted it was like one of the first. I believe. There's a really good one and it was great to it just uh-huh got her down to the acceleration on these things still to this day is very neck cracking the GT take the art. thirty-five gt are is like Arnold Schwarzenegger in true lies.

Does he have one of those. Like short sleeves I can take wall no longer was the GTRI powered by the RB. Twenty six It was time for something different new yeah the VR. Thirty Eight D. E. T.. T. is an all aluminum. Twin turbocharged v six to great motor. That's right every engine is assembled hand cleanroom and only the most experienced Nissan mechanics are allowed to work in this building There's only four dudes that build these motors. There's with one hundred years of experience between them in the coolest part about it. Is that every single. One of those dudes are every single. Engine that comes out is signed by the guy who makes it. Yeah so cool so shouts to sell it. As Soon Emmy Yama Nope Mitsukazu zemeckis almost had zoom zoom e Sharia and Takumi Kerala those dudes that no one just named make every tr engine that has been sold so every time you see a gt are on the street or on the Internet. You know that one one of those guys built the motor. Yeah they're responsible for Creating car youtube by powering every. Gtri ahead some Bikini Babe trying to reach one hundred dollar bill during a launch. So these guys that get her none basically fan basically do they just get earned an account allow it the VR thirty eight initially really made four hundred eighty horsepower which wasn't I mean? It wasn't super powerful at the time because like cars the Zonda and stuff from making like seven hundred zonders a two million dollar cars. Actually this thing I think was sixty no eighty ninety The VR we are was hooked up the VR. Thirty eight rather was hooked up to an updated version of the TAZA. all-wheel-drive that prioritized rear grip. This time around the combination of great power lean by rear grip so not sliding it out. Yeah you had me until you got to. The board out. Part hurt the combination of awesome power and great all-wheel-drive made the GT are one of the hardest launch and cars in the world achieving zero to sixty in three point point two seconds. That's fast for Backman. Yeah was faster than all the expensive competition and the Gtri wasn't just good at streetlight. Straight line performance either. The new are thirty thirty five. Maybe understood a little more than the thirty four but when it when hawked around turns even the enormous of observers can see that the Gtri was hooked in the corners was getting her done and I love jokes that my friends take your soul. Crushing stability was the name of the game with the our thirty five. Th there's like these onboard sensors answers that are constantly monitoring monitoring what the car is doing adjusting suspension like thousands of times per second. Some people say that feels like the car is driving itself a little a bit. I like that. I won't complain about driver assistance and stuff. He's on helping yet. So Nissan's goal is to make a supercar picard.

Well, it was fast, and it did it while being kind of big and heavy and over the years. They did something that's actually very difficult is they took the GT are. And they refined it to make it smoother to drive quieter to drive easier to drive more of an easier. Daily driver without sacrificing the performance.

And they wanna go then and believe me, I I will definitely get on the on the on the horn with NHRA and NASCAR, and I will convince. These guys to send us some tickets that we can give out to people.

This divide this difference in approach between Nissan and Renault will run a Nissan, a two very different companies that will brought together really as a matter of convenience, but they still have their own identities. So although Nissan says it had to get rid of Goan because of these allegations of wrongdoing talk to insiders, particularly on the run outside, and they say, well, actually, call us going was trying to bring these companies closer together. I'm fat may have set off some physical Nissan. So they took the opportunity. So the allegation goes to launch something of a palace coup a palace coup how much credence do you? Give those clamps observers of Japanese coporate, cultural will tell you that there were certain misgivings about Renos increased involvement in the alliance. So you have to factor in the contents of that extraordinary press conference earlier this week when Mr. psycho the current chief executive of necessity. I took the opportunity to explain what the allegations were against Mr. gone. But rather than leaving it at that one on at some length to talk about how too much power had been concentrated in the hands of one, man. And how the the way that the company was run in future would have to be different. So I think if you get all of that together, the idea that perhaps a situation has emerged people certain executives with a Nissan have taken volunteer Jove is at the very least credible. And so with guns arrest, do we know anything more about the state of the alliance between those three automakers we'll have been talking to people within the alliance this morning and the question then becomes who's going to lead the alliance now people within the alliance the saying, you know, it's not gonna go away. It is too big too complex the amounts of money. A too great for it to start to fall apart the moment the man who has been giving it guidance and strategic direction is under arrest in Tokyo. So.

The alliance has never been to foster a strong deputy if you look at any of the senior executives within Reynaud onus. None of them are in a position where they could take over directly from mister gold in the central global role. Anyone who has ever within the business and showed a degree of promise in that they will left, and they now run other car companies kind missed a golden was portrayed in Japan as a kind of super hero for rescuing the sun. How is the media handling his full from grace? I think there has been genuine shock both inside Japan and media about this abrupt down. Fall of really one of the most successful foreign executives in Japan. Mr. goon has enjoyed a rock star status in Japan as the savior of Nissan when the company was facing bankruptcy fears in the late nineteen ninety s but I think people are actually looking at this incident and taking it as an opportunity to actually reassess. Mr. goons legacy in what kind of value that Mr. goon had actually brought to the company p to is Mr. Jones career now over can you come back from this? And regardless of that will slightly to be his legacy. I think it's very difficult to see a way the call us. Go is able to come back at least to his position miss a lot of the language that was used in the press conference was very final. It's very difficult to see him coming back seventy while Sakala is in charge of Nissan uncertain until these allegations that have been made against him off cleared, but I think whatever happens to him in terms of his departure. From the businesses. His legacy is going to be undeniable in that he grew the alliance into the Tyson is today, he pushed into new technologies on many of the other car companies in the world with following renault-nissan in that pursuit of electric. 'cause in some of that Vic who strategies I think the fact that Reynaud decided that he needed to step aside, certainly does raise questions about whether or not he's able to come back that will depend largely on.

How will pay he was we'll call us gain was an absolute join of the car industry he'd come into both Renner in San when they were under performing he'd overseen the alliance and grow them together to be one of the largest combine your fractures in the world just behind VW in terms of the number of vehicles. They sell every year. He'd also made a number of very large industry which had paid off they've grown and developed new Vic who segments biology vehicles. No one had ever done before they created what's called the crossover segment with mini SUV's. They were also the first serious manufacturer to push into electric who's still one of the biggest electric vehicle sellers in the world. So across the industry. He's he's enormously highly regarded, even by people in companies that compete with Renner in this own across the globe. Scones pay was always a very sensitive issue. And he was paid extremely well. He drew salaries is both see over in our Anzio of Nissan. In two thousand sixteen and just over sixteen in a half million euros across the two companies at now, he also draws a salary is the chairman of Mitsubishi as well. Now, this is both in companies, which are based in countries, which have very sensitive tendencies to think around high pay in France, high pay is a very sensitive topic, and in Japan, corporate, C ios, very rarely unsubsidized scenes being given to Michigan Connor how did the accusations against Mr. goon surface? Nissan has said it launched an internal investigation into Mr. goon after it received a report from a whistle blower earlier this year after several months of investigation if found Mr. goon had misled investors by understating the amount of his pay Nelson that he had used company assets personal uses. I seems that took her prosecutors are now thus vacating real estate that in purchased by Nissan for Mr. goon, including residences in Lebanon, and Brazil. According to. Latest reports in the Japanese media, and how is it possible that the company was unaware of how much the CEO was paid as they claim. So that is really a big question. That's hanging over this whole entire scandal. Though psychology the chief executive of Nissan blamed lapses in corporate, governance and also the concentration of power, Mr. zone as one of the factors. Why the company did not realize about this problem, but investors and analysts are ready asking whether it really is possible for a company as big a global as Nissan not to be aware of how much the CEO is paid. This is really a question that the company needs to address in the coming weeks. Khanna we've been unable to reach Mr. goon he is in custody. And so we should say we have not heard his response to these allegations. But if he is. Charged and ultimately found guilty. We'll tell the penalties. Mr. goon is found guilty of falsifying financial statements, then he could face a penalty of up to ten years in prison a fine of up to eighty nine thousand dollars or both Vanessa. How will this extraordinary incident affect the alliance between Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi? Toyota's chief executive insisted the partnership between the three businesses would not be affected. But a lot of investors think we'll put the announce under lot more strain as Peter said this to gone was this huge Baker for nearly two decades who was glue that held this launched together. He folds the structure, his charisma that globe-trotting or help keep it together. However, the been questions about the Lance for long time Nissen's can't chief executive vocally opposes the idea of a merger and succession. Planning what happened after Mr. goons been an issue for time as well. Even so most industry analysts think the pressures in the car industry. So great that the alliance is likely to hold together. So there's opposition to emerge continuation, perhaps the most likely why is it been seen as a success? Well, the tie up has enabled cost savings,.
