And rabbit ears would, so we create this children's book, but then we get top Hollywood names to record them. I think the Davy Crockett was like Nicholas cage. And sacagawea, I don't remember who did that one. I'm pretty sure it was mom's maybelle. I'm almost, I'm almost certain that I don't. It was either mom's maybelle or Sinatra. Either one. One of those two. But then we would get amazing musicians. Garrison keeler. Yeah. Can you use his name now? Is it safe to say garrison? I think he wants his touched a woman's back. When they were taking a photo and he lost his career over that thing. Goodness. Marco Connor, the fabulous Marco Connor, did the music for that. It was quite a fantastic production of video. Well, that's the point is that the rabbit hair stuff was super accurate to one tons of awards. So I had the privilege of writing many of those. And my name is attached to these Grammy Awards for best children's recording 1989 or something like that. I think that one too. Yeah, I know. It's crazy.

And he's like, ah, that Mach-E, you know, I saw the podcast you guys did. Look from within one and I've heard good things about it and what do you think? And I said, how long are you going to keep it? And he went, I don't know. That's a good question. And I went, well, if you're going to keep it three years or less by the Tesla, 'cause you'll have better resale value. If you're going to drive that sucker till the wheels fall off and then some go with the Ford because the Ford is going to have all those things that you just mentioned, Jay. They've got the R&D experience. They've got the quality, you know, Tesla's toyed around with various versions of their repair service, Ford's got that worked out and has had it worked out for decades. Plus the Ford interface is different than the Tesla interface. If you like the way Ford lays their UI out for all their buttons and controls, go with the Ford. So same sort of deal here. You know, you're getting into a brand new product line for a brand new company and this is their very first vehicle that they're making. It's not necessarily that whether or not there will be problems. It's how are they going to deal with them when they show up? That's exactly right. That's my point. Customer loyalty that's this valuable to and that's something that forward that's what they live on. Their customer loyalty is hands down, probably some of the greatest out there. And if you don't think so, just go take a look at who's been number one in truck sales over the last decade or more. That that pretty much proves it. But.

It was never proven that halsey. I'm danica was throwing rocks. And there is antonio's mother are selling nogales sonora in two thousand nineteen at the site where her son was murdered. She standing right in front of a picture of her son As we investigated this case at the time john carlos fray this case among others is referenced in the letter to congress. Can you talk about The information that came out around the cit units and what they did in covering this up very disturbing case in in a very disturbing trend here a fifteen year old boy shot in the back unarmed standing in mexico while the us border patrol agent standing in the united states found not guilty basically. Lonnie schwartz is the only border patrol agent prosecuted for misfiring. His weapon in the entire history of the us border patrol. That's the only person who's been prosecuted. There were a couple of other agents who were prosecuted in texas during the bush administration for firing their weapon at a drug dealer. They hit him in the back. But this is the first time in. Us border patrol history that anybody has been prosecuted for the death of individual in the past fifteen years over a hundred individuals have been killed at the hands of the us border patrol at the border. Not one of them has been brought prosecution. That is what it is doing. They are preparing evidence. They are doctoring evidence. They are tampering with evidence. They are deleting evidence they are making sure that agents themselves look like they are firing their weapons properly that everything they do is on up enough and there's nothing to see here in the case that we're talking about there was a was an unarmed boy. Who was shot in the back. There were two surveillance video cameras that are anchored right on the top of the border fence. There pointed right where the incident occurred. That video is missing. We don't know what happened to it because it prepared the investigation. The border patrol prepared that investigation. So you know if we're talking about Making sure that they defend themselves against civil liability. Well of course. They're going to delete that video carlos. Friday we're going to thank you for being with us award. Winning investigative journalists reported extensively on immigration author of the book sand and blood. America's stealth war on the mexico border coming up. What does the late great nobel prize winning novelist. Toni morrison have to do with the virginia. Governor's race stay with us. Well they won't go. Thank we must be in god. God bang scared. I hear on democracy now democracy now dot org the warrant piece report i mean he could minutes. We turn to the closely watched. Virginia governor's race that pits former governor. Terry mcauliffe a democrat against republican. Glenn young ken the former. Ceo of the car loud group when the world's largest private equity firms vice-president kamala harris. Oh campaign in norfolk. Virginia with mccullough today Former president trump's planning to hold the tele rally for young can on monday president biden campaign with mccullough earlier this week and warned. Young can is an extremist in the vein of former president. Trump extremism can come in many forms. You're covered the rage of a mob driven of our sold driven to assault the capital. It could come in a smile and a fleece vest. Young can has campaigned in part by vowing to support so called parent's rights which has become a catch phrase to describe right wing. Opposition vaccine mask mandates trans rights for students and critical race theory. There's even been a firestorm in the race over. The teaching of toni. Morrison's acclaimed novel beloved in schools. We're going to look at that in a moment. But first we're joined by julia manchester the national political reporter for the hill. Who's been covering. The virginia governor's race welcome to democracy. Now talk about the issues in these last few days in this race. That scene is the bellwether for the country about what will happen in the midterm elections. Next year julia. We'll good morning. Amy we've seen a number of issues really be centerpieces of both mcauliffe and youngins campaigns in the closing days of this race. As you said this issue of so-called parents rights has become a huge issue for junkin yung-chen very much seizing upon these very tensions and sometime tensioness in sometimes You know dangerous school board meetings that we've seen in loudon county virginia and across the country very much saying that parents have a right to be involved in their children's education. In that school elected school board officials are essentially political figures. Trying to influence as virginia students education. A young very much. Seizing upon terry mcauliffe comments last month in which he said he did not believe that parents shouldn't be should be involved in a child's education in the school system. Now terry mcauliffe very much pushing back against that saying that of course he believes parents should have some say in their children's advocation and very much touting the fact that he launched his campaign on education pledging to spend two billion dollars per year on virginia public school system. So that's one issue we're seeing. We're also seeing this nationwide issue over abortion rights leaking into or seeping into this race. You have terry mcauliffe saying glenn. Young men will implement some sort of abortion ban in virginia similar to maybe that scene in texas where it's abortion is banned after six weeks of pregnancy. So terry mcauliffe very much warning democratic voters about that yung-chen pushing back saying that. Unlike the texas ban he believes an abortion in cases of rape and incest. You're also seeing president biden and his approval his own approval rating impacting. This race you know as the race between young mccullough has grown more narrow. You've seen in. Virginia president biden Approval ratings start to tick down. And i think that's why a lot of virginia democrats are closely watching what's happening on capitol hill with biden's agenda hoping for a victory between now and november seconds to prove it somehow to prove that if under democratic leadership on capitol hill. They can get that done. They can get the same initiatives. John in virginia and finally president trump himself is an issue despite the fact that he is not on the ballot. This year and virginia and he is not the sitting president. Terry mcauliffe has invoked president. Trump's name quite a bit in this race maybe just as much if not more than glenn youngins name in an effort to tie glenn youngin to donald trump and it's clear i mean he hasn't been out on the campaign trail with him. Not sure whose choice it is but this tele rally. That will be held on monday. Among the things that young can is willing to openly embrace Calling for the audit of election machines of course continuing that lie that the elections were rigged. Yes this is something. Yung-chen has called ever since he launched his campaign early earlier this year. In fact in february his campaign launched an election integrity task force. So he's been very much talking about this and he talked about this during the republican convention. Much more publicly because he was trying to appeal to that deep red. Maybe pro-trump conservative base in virginia. However now that he's gotten into the general election against mccullough he has to be careful with how much he embraces trump and the issue of election integrity publicly because he's also trying to appeal to moderate more suburban voters. Maybe in some cases more left leaning voters are slightly left leaning voters Trying to peel off some votes from terry mcauliffe but the issue is president. Trump is extremely unpopular in virginia. He lost virginia in two thousand sixteen. Twenty twenty in part of the reason for that is because the population centers in virginia whether it that's northern virginia outside of washington. Dc bridgman. the norfolk area hampton roads. Those all are incredibly. Lou leaning parts of virginia those population centers and mathematically. There's more democratic. Voters in virginia than there are republican voters. So this is all about a turnout game. The problem is there's more republican enthusiasm at this moment. In virginia than there is democratic enthusiasm as we mentioned. There's been a firestorm in virginia race over the teaching of toni. Morrison's acclaimed pulitzer prize winning novel beloved in schools. It stems from an ad by the republican candidate. Glenn young can that features mother who wants campaign to have the book banned from her high school.

"Along the way. Are you ready to take this thing to the top? Let's go. Now here's your host of the next level selling podcast, Michael Paul. Hey, what's up everybody, it's Michael here the next level selling motivational minute podcast. It'll probably take two or three minutes, but you can stick with me for that long. So listen, I want to tell you about when I became a stockbroker years ago. And I'm with my mentor, a guy by the name of Bowie Martin. That's right, that's his real name Bowie Martin. He truly is a legend in the firm that he worked for. So anyway, he's my mentor, and I go in with him and I'm sitting down and he says, listen, I'm getting ready to do an appointment and I've already kind of told this customer what's going to happen. So here's what I want you to do. I want you to stand up over here on the back side so they can't see you and you're going to take this glass of water. It's not a big black glass of water. It's a, you know, I don't know regular size glass and he filled it about three quarters of the way full of water, and he handed it to me. He said, I want you to hold that glass of water out in front of you, and I want you to really, really suck it up for the next ten minutes or so, I want you to hold that glass out while I conduct this appointment. It's going to be a short appointment. I'm just going to review a few things here. But hold that glass out and no matter what, don't drop your arm. I said, I can do this. You know, heck, I'm an army ranger, I'm tough dude, whatever I can handle this. And I wanted to learn something here. You know, I'm thinking this has got to be some Jedi mind trick, you know, sales train, and he's about to impart this wisdom on me. So I'm kind of excited about it. And so I'm thinking, yeah, it's just a glass of water. What's the big deal I can do this? So as appointment starts and I'm standing over there and I've got my arm out in front of me holding that glass of water and you know a minute or two goes by and it's not a big deal and then three to four minutes into it and I start to realize this is starting to feel a little bit heavy. And then 5 or 6 minutes go by and the thought creeps in my brain like, how long is this appointment gonna take? And then all of a sudden 7 to 8 minutes, I got a little bit of sweat beating up on my brow. This glass is getting a little heavy. And then about ten minutes into the meaning, sure enough. Thank the lord above. He finishes the meeting and the customer walks out looking at me rather oddly as they left. And so I'm standing there and I'm not going to let that glass of water down until he tells me. And so he sees the customer out he walks over and he says, okay, okay, you can put the glass down. I'm like, thank God. So I set the glass down on the corner of the desk and he says to me, Mike, how much do you think that glass of waterways? And I said right now it weighs a ton. I mean this glass of water weighs more than any glass of water I've ever held in my life. He said, I know. He said, so obviously after ten minutes, it's pretty heavy. But honestly, what do you think it weighs? And I said, I don't know, two or three ounces. It's obviously extremely light, and he said, but you know, hanging on to it, it became rather heavy right and I said, yes, he said, tell me what you felt, and I said, pain. I mean, I felt pain, I felt pain in my shoulder, pain in my arm, my bicep. I mean, I felt pain, holding this glass. And I'm waiting on this incredible wisdom about selling and being an adviser and I just know he's about to hit me with this stuff, and here's what he says. He says, that glass actually represents the stress you're going to feel as a salesperson. The stress you're going to feel as a financial adviser. The stress that you're going to feel in your family life while you're trying to get up and do the things you have to do every day. That's what that represents. And the longer you hold on to it, the more it's gonna hurt. If you just hold on to it for ten or 15 minutes and then you put it down, you might be okay. Hold on to this stress and all this crap for about a week. All of a sudden you start feeling some pain in your chest, you hold on to it too long, it'll kill you. Do you understand where I'm coming from? It was a great lesson. It was one that I will never forget. What are you holding on to? What are you hanging on to every single day?.

They say we don't need these so really some one-ton destruction which just sliding to see because there's a lot of effort that went into all that. Let me ask this. What do afghans want. I think every afghan will tell you they want peace. They want peace and security. They want to be able to get the fruit to market. They won't get raised their kids that the people who are appealing to me to help to get out usually saying they're doing it for their children in especially the girls they come back to see them have to sit at home and be robbed of an education just because they're girls so that's the main thing people want. The kids want go to school. The families want to be able to earn a living and have safety and so a taliban win could bring a forced piece but most people are predicting that they weren't because they're trying to take control by force and so the will be inevitably resistance and opposition and so the war will go on. There's no doubt the afghans have been fighting for forty years and the probably gonna fight fo for many more carlotta. Thank you okay. Pleasure great back.

"LAPD Bomb truck destroyed by illegal fireworks has been removed from a neighborhood in south L. A. The total containment vehicle had been brought in to detonate. Some improvised explosives founded a home on East 27th Street. But during the detonation last Wednesday, something went wrong and the explosion sent shrapnel and a one ton iron lid up to four blocks away. The A. T. F was called in to investigate. An agent tells me the wreckage was taken to another location for continued analysis and the block Street and surrounding scene should be freed up. By Thursday morning, a 26 year old man was arrested by the LAPD for storing the explosives, but he bailed out last Thursday. He was arrested by federal agents Saturday on charges of transporting the fireworks and explosives from Nevada. He's doing court tomorrow. Steve Gregory KFT NEWS.

I mean, right, And I think that the two prevailing theories, according to sources of mine in law enforcement. That it was a chemical that they did not identifying. There was something in that batch that they were unable to detect or there was structural integrity issues with the actual vessel.

I'm not sure the background on how those are serviced and how they're maintained. But structural integrity was being thrown around quite a bit last. Yeah, I mean, there's a lot of video and people can check it out and just see how huge that explosion was. They said that the top of this armored container Probably weighs as much about as one ton. And that thing flew, like two blocks, right? Now, the other fireworks that they were able to Holloway safely were those just kind of your normal mortars and other of these illegal fireworks. That's what we usually see, commercially designed and commercially manufactured, and they're telling us that they came from out of state. So somewhere out of California It's not clear if they meant Mexico or just recently, Cal Fire announced £80,000 of seized fireworks in the last two months just from the Arizona California border and the Nevada California border. So just an interdiction program between those two borders and so these fireworks £5000 in total, that's a lot.

Well, what do police departments fire departments do in the lead up to the Fourth of July? Pandemic happened. There's a lot of pent up, demand a party and blow these things up. Uh, I mean, what do they do in preparation for this? Because they know what's going to happen. Obviously, they made this big bust, but there's gonna be illegal Fireworks all over the place. Sure. Every fire department. Every law enforcement agency in America has been having a press conference almost every day. To tout the dangers of illegal fireworks and fireworks in general, were in a record drought. So there's also the fire danger. Then there's the explosion danger. But the problem is is all these jurisdictions. Municipalities have different codes and rules with respect to Fireworks. The city of Los Angeles Fireworks are illegal.

So be well, No, not new in terms of like jaw dropping new but It's basically a T F on scene yesterday morning. Their national response team got here, and what they're doing now is they're going out to that debris field and they're trying to pick up just much like if you will, a plane crash or any other type of explosion that has a debris field. They're going to see how far out that debris field goes, and then they're working their way in and they're doing what they're now. Calling, shrinking that debris field picking at that evidence and working their way inward so they can get streets opened up neighborhoods opened up. People can get back to their homes, and then as they do that, they make note of it. They measure they survey and then they go back and put all the information into a computer modeling program. Then they're going to try to recreate the blast, based on Which direction most of the debris went. Where did the least of the debris co interviews from witnesses interview with bomb techs with the media Because there were some media folks standing by to And then they'll take all that information. They're going to try to recreate the explosion. Figure out if this was a problem with the structure and structural integrity of the sphere, or was it human error? Uh, you know, there was also this Theory floating around that somehow the lid this one ton lead this hydraulic hydraulically controlled was not fully closed and was not field completely. There's also concern now is to why did the LAPD take the risk? Trying to detonate these improvised explosives in the middle of a densely pop populated neighborhood. So the ATF's going to work on that then they have another team that's investigating how the guy the 27 year old man who was arrested. How did he acquire this much explosive material? What was he doing with it? Where did he get it from? And it's just the only house in the area because from what I'm being told, now, there are multiple homes in l a. That do just this very thing and that is stored this kind of material. And then there's a connection and you talked about a bit yesterday after I left that there is a connection now, with cartels moving this kind of explosives up into L. A. So there's a lot of questions that still need a lot of answers. Yeah, The part that jumped out at me today with the new reporting I read was, why did they do this in the neighborhood? Don't they Normally drive this out to some secure LAPD area or an open field just somewhere where nobody is going to get hurt, and nothing is going to get damaged and to do it right in the middle of a densely populated area. Now, the day later does seem to be a curious decision. Sure, And you know what everyone's going to start to pick and poke at all of the the could be would bees and should be and in this particular case That containing vehicle has been into a lot of places, a lot of neighborhoods, a lot of shopping centers, a lot of places to dispose and detonate explosives. They've gone through this many times before, and they've done it with 100% success. What was so different about this particular situation? Worse than it is? I think you and I talked about yesterday was the chemical makeup of this particular explosive something they Was it that bad? Um Again. Was there, uh, with their faulty equipment in play? Was there some bad judgment? That's again? These are all questions that need to be answered that perhaps we'll get a little better idea of why they chose that location. Somehow, somewhere someone thought it was okay to do so. If it was something like they didn't close the lid tight enough. Are there going to be able to figure that out Because so much damage was done. How do they separate the damage out of somebody not closing the door tightly enough. Or maybe it was a little off kilter, and that's why it didn't close tightly. It may not have been that I'm just saying now that everything got all busted up. How are you going to separate What went wrong at the moment from all the damage from the explosion. The technology is amazing for them to recreate these things and the lid. If I remember correctly, the lid is closed remotely. It's not something that they close the lid in person. They they load the stuff in remotely through a robot. And then the robot goes back, and then they hit another button and the lid closes. Now it's possible that a sensor that tells them the latest close wasn't working and to your question. You know, it's just much like the the finite material that they find on plane crashes, and they're able to go back and find out that a fuse gave out in a plane crash. They have this amazing technology to be able to go in and try to determine how this happened. It's very possible, John that through simple witness testimony and through checklists and going down the list. It's very possible this might come out to be Lack of judgment call. It may not even be a technical thing. It may just being protocols not followed, even though Chief Moore says all the protocols were followed. But you know what? It was also information he was given right there on the spot. When you get a bunch of federal ATF agents, breaking everyone up and doing one on one interviews. You never know what kind of information you're going to get. All right, and you got any more on this gang situation? I mean, I mean, there's more stories out about the tremendous amount of, uh, really nasty explosives that the gangs are selling, and then they're using the proceeds to buy guns, and I guess there's no way to stop this stuff is there Here's.

He said this week that it was always quote a goal, not a deadline. That is KCRW's Anna Scott reporting. Residents of south L. A want to know why the LAPD decided to blow up a stockpile of illegal fireworks in their neighborhood and who's going to pay to clean up the mess as we've been reporting. More than a dozen people, including officers were hurt when a specialized LAPD truck intended for the safe disposal of the fireworks was blown apart. Several homes and vehicles were damaged and now federal authorities have joined the investigation to find out why the containment vessel on the truck failed. LAPD Lieutenant Raoul Duval says Clearly something went very wrong. You have that environment where it's pressurized. It needs to find an outlet. It certainly founded knowledge here, and he just created that pressure wave. That pressure was so intense that it sent a one ton lid from the containment vessel flying. Into a backyard two blocks away, and when an unknown number of residents of sought temporary housing a 27 year old man living in the house where the fireworks were seized, was arrested on suspicion of possessing illegal explosives. And the LAPD today says it seized about £2000 of fireworks from a shipping container in downtown L. A. Authorities say a bomb squad transfer the material to a truck, which took it.

"You're listening to but y and today we're taking a deep dive into noodles the history of noodles going way back more than three thousand years to china and the middle east and forward to italy the united states and more lots of cultures have noodle traditions and distinct noodle dishes from roman and japan to cool in european israeli and american jewish communities lacsa in malaysia spitzer in germany and austria. Persian rushed even macaroni casserole in the united states. Maybe your family has a special noodle dish that is meaningful just to you. This might sound gross today. But when i was a kid back in the nineteen eighties the special birthday meal that i got to have just once a year was macaroni and cheese from a box. You know the really yellowy orange kind with cut up in it today. we're talking with two chefs. Who make dishes. That are much tastier more sophisticated than that gen. Lin liu who lives in beijing and wrote a book about the history of the noodle from china to italy and beyond and martin yan. Who's helping describe what his executive chef. Tony woo does that. Their m y china in san francisco our ship is ready to make one strength noodle into sixteen thousands of noodle and let's check it out with again. I know you can't see what's happening. So let me describe it to you. Chef tony has taken a lump of raw dough just flour and water and he's twisted and turned it stretching it out like a jump rope and then twisting it back together again multiple times so that the doe is nice and stretchy and looks like one very long thick twisted noodle now in front of a long counter that's got a good thick layer of spread across the top of it. He takes this long dough piece in two hands and stretches out his arms he swings the dough up and down so it bends and stretches out it really does kind of look like a jump rope now you have one strengths nudo and chef tony twist it now he won show noodle he folded he struggled. And you put it this time instead of twisting it back together. He coats it in flowers. So the noodles won't stick to themselves and then he puts the two ends together in one hand and grabs the middle stretching it out again by senses but failing to and then you'll feel it and you folded again you have forced some noodle and then you fold it again you have h during some noodle and then you'll folded again. You have sixteen strength of ludo so each time chef. Tony stretches out the dough. He puts the two ends in one hand and grabs the bottom of this loop of noodle stretching all of these noodle pieces out again and making sure they don't stick together by dipping them in the flower and yes he's fold which just adds to the excitement. He does this again and again each time. Doubling the number of noodle strands in his hand. And then you'll photo again. You see his doing by senses by feeling touching it and then four thousand strengths of noodle and then you fold it again aac thousand strengths of noodle and then folded again. You have sixteen thousand strength. Some new totally done by hen. Look at world record. Never seen anything like that. Business human pasta machine chef. Tony wu of m. y. china in san francisco. Look at that look at this. Look this is and make nudo. It is so small like hair. this is To master best. That was exciting. You want to actually see what that looked like. Go to but why kids dot org or to our but kids facebook page where we have the video of chef tony pulling the noodles making sixteen thousand very thin noodle strands by hand in two minutes obviously takes a lot of skill food writer and cooking school. Owner gen lin. Liu says even though pasta has just two or three ingredients making good pasta. Takes practice whether you're doing it by hand or shaping your noodles with a machine. Oh absolutely you really have to do it. On a regular basis to be good noodles There is a kind of noodle in china. Called the knife. Graded flying noodle. Where'd you have amount of dough in your hand and a razor blade looking cutting knife that you use to slice the noodles like long strands directly into a hot boiling water. There's also kind of noodle called hand pool noodles. That's what tony we just did. That takes a lot of artistry. It looks like you know a man almost like you know pulling apart using his hands like an accordion to stretch long strands of needles. And they kind of break them off with their wrist and then throw them into a again. Another hot wok of boiling water. There's a lot of artistry and talent that goes into making noodles some of the filled pasta like ravioli and tortellini and shuai also take a ton of practice to get right so making noodles isn't as easy as throwing flour and water together and calling them done but making noodles can be really fun and it can be a way to bring your family together around a shared activity and something that you love to eat and a more interesting way to create your own dinner and once you've the noodles down martin. Yan says the possibilities are endless. Are you can make noodles show.

"one ton" Discussed on Airline Pilot Guy - Aviation Podcast

"Messages so you can deal with it on the with with maintenance park so cool almost like a bite check Internal test internal by check. Exactly right all right so Let's see the passenger who was a captain for another operator and also type rated on the seven fifty seven two hundred occupied the passenger seat between cockpit and upper cargo bay reported he heard permanent air rush or a permanent air rush in this phase of the flight climbing through fifty one hundred feet and two hundred and forty knots indicated. The crew heard a loud noise and concluded from their cockpit. Indications of the cargo door have malfunctioned and had opened. The crew declared an emergency. Stop the climb reduced the speed and decided to return to leipzig as we as we mentioned due to the low wind situation the aircraft landed on eight right opposite to their takeoff direction. While turning left the crew observed the autopilot was struggling to perform the commanded changes of heading the captain thus to manually control the aircraft and noticed significant changes of the aircraft responses to control inputs during that time. 'cause real your member that the cargo door was like sticking straight up another vertical stabiliser toward the front of the airplane and Let's see They also noticed that during that time the crew Let's received messages left after fuel pump and fuel configuration left. You'll tank showed one ton less fuel than expected. The left turn was completed and once in this is actually it will find out a little bit more in their investigation that it had something to do with the fact that the airplane was not being was not an a coordinated. turn and had some lateral g forces. I think that caused the fuel sensors to give kind of erroneous information because after they after they finish the turn everything. All the messages disappeared and feel quantity indication for the left tank began to increase to where it should have been. This is the part. I kind of highlighted this. And i don't know what you guys think about this. I don't know if. I'm sure i would not have done this. After establishing the aircraft on final approach course the crew activated one autopilot first then all three and performed an automatic landing without further problems. I don't i'm not sure why he would put the autopilot on. Especially after you know knowing that the airplane wasn't really performing the way it should when they were flying manually. But i don't know that's just maybe a little critique among the the where he had you know trouble control control the aircraft is when he was making that turn you know having that cargo door sticking up you know at the top of the fuselage like a sale My i'm i'm with you as well. I would not have connected you know. Put the autopilot on But i feel like Once you intercept localized or in your tracking localize or inbound and the end and the glide slope coming down. I guess the the inputs whether they're manual or automatic required to maintain The irs down to the runway are minimal The on the seven fifty seven and seven sixty seven. You control pitch. Wait not with elevator on while autopilot. Control it with elevator you control with stabiliser use either the left or the centre Stabiliser and each autopilot. The left autopilot serrato mateo. They each us So if you're if you're flying with the left autopilot you fly with the left hydraulic system from with the left or the centre and the right autopilot only the center. So when you have an autopilot on you're only using one of to stabilize your motors. Stabiliser trims at half rate because you're using one and so the the the the corrections to maintain that are very very very small and the reason why the you would turn on the other two auto pilots to do an automatic landings because when you select the approach. Me off the autopilot. The other two autopilots come on for a triple channel autopilot auto auto land and at one time. Only one on a pilot's working just that if that pilot degrades then you have other to another to autopilots takeover In that critical phase of flight says how like you're fine with three point with one at all times. So here's my thinking on. That jeff and i agree with both of you. Where the during gauge much harder to tell what the aircraft Flight controls are moving to what position. Now 'cause you gotta yoke. And i'm assuming the will give you indication but it's much easier to feel with your hands when you hand flying the airplane if you're getting to the limit of control And since they had control difficulties. I would have preferred myself to be completely aware of what was happening with the aircraft controls. Not let the autopilot do that for me. i'm i agree. I agree the only the only thing. I didn't touch on on. Triple channel autopilot. Is that when you're when you actually have the autopilots so all three autopilots On for for for the landing portion of the flight The rudder comes in as well because during normal autopilot The rudder is not part of the The flight control surfaces that the pilot controls so on the landing portion of it. It actually is because you can perform an auto land with a certain amount of crosswind and the only way to keep that flat coordinated s with rudder and on the role as well to track centerline. The pilot will will will Actually at your nose wheel to keep tracking down the center of the runway. So now if they're at the situation was like low visibility situation than i could see you definitely want to have that auto auto flight And auto land feature activated But From what i can tell here looks like it was Vm see below. Four thousand feet And the winds weren't really high. We've heard of plenty of nasty upsets. That have occurred when an order upon it has been engaged and has moved controls without the crew realizing to the limit of its ability and then kicked off and then boom airplane suddenly rolls so suddenly pitches and you would not want that on funding operation if you had a previous Handling problem and i would really Have noted is that so. It's funny you mention that because that's one of the that's one of the big big. Big time is on boeing. When you're coming in on a triple channel approach on us on a single engine type scenario on you know in seven six or our with an end with an outboard out on the seven forty seven as i said the the autopilot will will will Control the rudder as well as long as all three pilots are online. But like i said only one is controlling the aircraft. At the time. The moment you go around and you throttle up to fly the go around procedure and you go from approach to any other lateral being head and selector l. Never anything else. The rudder control kicks off. And if you're not ready for it trimmed for it it'll it'll roll you right over so tell us a nasty surprise. Wanted to when you close to the ground. You haven't got height really never wanted to happen at all. I've got pretty for the pudding is the got the aircraft safely back on the ground. A you've got to give credit. Oh absolutely i'm not i. I don't mean to be critical. I just i when i was reading this. I'm thinking i would not have Yeah yeah i mean to those guys You would not have been decision and turned out to be fine as he got the across. Absolutely the we we might not have made. This decision doesn't mean his was totally invalid or right true. Good point good point. Let's see so they got the thing down on the ground. As you mentioned success. Happy ending an inspection of the locking system. The cargo door revealed that the safety pins had not fully engaged with the locking hooks. The action of the locking hooks had not fully extended linkage however showed no faults when this condition was manually reproduced. The cargo door.

"A Ravinder there from the people that i looked for. And i find this account but the defensive campbell. Who because he was in a defense but was in his thing. As i mentioned earlier right to the top of the tower he He didn't have anything to accept. Watch that because they were mainly waiting for cross Rodney didn't not actually have anti-aircraft guns manned that would have been condemned to death and so He was setup there in this position and he saw what he was Semaphore signals from abysmal. After looking at the tent campbell's clue if you like i'll just finding the tenant campbell's suggestion semaphore signals from mast on the front end of the ship then got in touch with kevin ause followed. Father told me baas being a writing in the level below the defensive position in the main control position of rodney and he had the people. A lot of people speak spoke tune. Fissionable cut high paddle. Ticks could really see what was going on and he was on these high powered optical instruments and he saw more than that he saw a guy using a semaphore on. What are the four terrace. It was blown away A black flag on a how yet and probably blown away and Also he saw lot signals as well and then beyond that. I did find a a site or an actress dosage. And i put this in. Another book did cutting the small a franklin who he so signals as well so for me and i'm not saying it's gonna stand up in coal or scientific proof but for me. It's a very intriguing proposition. And to me make sense because With only chronic control going into four end of the ship the defy the secondary armament and main guns act. Still farming is going to be paper. The front of the thinking much offices date while they decided lyneham still alive. But you know things have just gone to pulse and we've got. It remains slow today. So it gonna surrender. we talk. We must we were stopped this and but the problem was that color still flying and unlike there was one other instance in history where vouchers did surrender in a battle but it would not same circumstances. It wasn't close range. And i don't think the one of the scientists flooring either clear signs that one of the signs to surrender so these were clues and signs. They weren't really firm enough. I would say Can georgia fifth and ronnie to say rod. We're going to stop is inconceivable. Minimal not gonna read kindly. You could just stall when paul an enemy ship is still far unless you said you know the i want to. I mean you couldn't put a. I mean how would you put across.

"He's gonna wreck in Carrollton, eh, Rick? Hey, uh, how you doing? Don't know. Thanks for asking. Well, here's a question. I've got a wife with a 2000 and eight to conduct cord. Nice car does find miles on it. But, you know, it just doesn't have the technology she'd like to have, and she'd like to sit a little higher up in traffic doesn't wanna pick up. I've got that with a three quarter time. And she didn't like that ride. So what I'm thinking about is some kind of Ah, issue V or something like that. That gets you a little bit further apart. Program that has a nice ride. Necessarily Quiet. What would you suggest? How long you been married? 43 years. That's a long time. No, it's not. It's It's a drop in the bucket. If you talking to Paul Harvey, that's all point. You can't talk to Paul Harvey anymore. I know he finally got that far down the road to Yeah, I know. I know. 43 years. Wow. Well, and you haven't broke her into three quarter ton truck. Shit. Imagine that. She she has it, but I got to get her a mouth guard to some of the roads here locally. Uh, I've driven onto your fact. Don had a one ton Dooley, right? And over on older on by the way that he needs to pull his horses. So in early nineties model, and one day we went to lunch over in Fort Worth in about going three miles on Camp Bowie and that red brick boat road. On an early nineties. One ton Chevy. That was a duly about the third time my head hit the ceiling. I was done. Yeah, that's woodsy belts before knows, three quarter and one times I'm well aware, of course. Nowadays they're much more sophisticated, Rick. I've been in that one time Ram truck. He was easy to drive a duly no less and just It was just wonderful going down the road, but we're back to Mom again. And you've been married to 43 years. So tell me what she told you. She wants to drive. Well, her big thing is technology. In other words, her iPhone is everything she was, is the book's podcast. You name it, It's out there. Hardly ever listens to me and current or newsworthy doesn't like to talk about news anymore. But the other thing is she liked it. I think she does like the idea that trucks you can see down the road. With what? I'm seeing traffic. I'm monitoring it. He's not going to sit up. Besides, you're gonna sit in the three. She knows that she knows because she didn't want to go that high and be in a truck and she can't park thing and half the places she wants to go retail and you know something. I think that's great point. I had the new Ford F series this week, right? And it is every bit is exceptional. It's the last generation has lots of little toys and all that to it, And certainly it's sitting there at the house because it was a hybrid system. So I was getting like 20/30 miles of gallon on the highway. So I've got nearly a full tank of gas in it. Do you think I drove it here to work today? Well, if you enjoyed it, you would. Yeah. Now because we have a parking garage here at the radio station and getting those even even though this is a half ton, any magnificent truck Just getting into a parking space and making 45 turns when you could just pull the car in there immediately. I understand why people buy trucks to work in him. Trucks are magnificent. Today, whether be the ran the Chevy the Ford Whatever. But it is a whole lot easier just to jump into the car and park it. Yeah. You know your your testosterone factor. It goes up with these trucks. You're not gonna park it Love field or DFW in the garage easily. It can be done just it just takes more turns in any case. So you've had a lot of luck with the Honda. Did Mom say she wouldn't look at like a CR V Well, that's it, and we haven't It's been so long. I mind being a 12 and her spin and oa. We were just willing dabble in cars when they're around us, and we have to watch out for him on the road, so I don't know if you're in Carrollton, the first place I would take her to start. As I drive over to Huff fines Hyundai in Plano and have her drive a Santa Fe. Okay? Because that's kind of a compact SUV, but it doesn't look like it is going a little sit a little bit higher than most of them has a lot of technology in it. But it's really a wonderful road car, too. Is it Quiet? Yeah. Okay, Especially that's the criteria. I don't After that. It's just whether you just want to do it or not, As you know, most of these vehicles are not as quiet as they used to be. Because the fact they're having to take out sound insulation improve the fuel efficiency. But I think this is a good place to start a balance because if the truth be known, she could go look at a raft four Toyota because this generation were out four is incredible. She can look at the CRV should go look at a Nissan rogue sport. There's a lot of great compact SUVs of the moment on the market, but I'm pretty sure if you go drive this one first. Then. It's probably something she'd say. I could live with this for 12 years again. Okay. All right. And then you can call me back on your 55th wedding anniversary and say went by in a blink of an eye. Yeah, well, I'll have to look up your retired number on them. I'm afraid they're going. They go wreck. Have a good weekend, buddy. Thank you.

Perfectly preserved prehistoric cave bear discovered on Russian Arctic island

"Have just discovered a completely preserved extinct cave bear the ice age cave bear species, Ursus SPILEA S-, which went extinct about fifteen thousand years ago is itself between twenty, two, thousand to thirty, nine, thousand, five, hundred years old and was discovered in the melting permafrost of the of Ski Islands the Southernmost Group of the new Siberian islands. The bear originally found by reindeer herders still has its nose teeth and internal organs intact. It is the first wholly intact cave bear specimen scientists having previously only found skeletons. Quoting Science Alert Cave bears roamed while most of Europe and Asia. Were covered in glaciers sharing the landscape with mammoths, sabertooth cats, and giant ground sloths. The creatures were massive males could weigh up to one ton, which is about five hundred pounds heavier than the largest bears alive today and quote this particular species is believed to be an ancient relative of the Modern Day Brown bear and this specimens precise age will be confirmed wants radiocarbon analysis is done by the team at Eastern Federal University and you could. As the planet warms and more discoveries are being made in the permafrost other fines in recent years include a cave bear cub of forty thousand year old Wolf's head two lion cubs in eighteen, thousand year old puppy, and of course, the remains of woolly mammoths.

beirut explosion latest news

"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

Racing's Drug Kingpin: Randy Lanier

"Let's get into the story of Randy Lanier the weed racer yes. Yeah Oh Randy. Lanier was born in Lynchburg Virginia on September. Twenty second nineteen fifty four. His family moved to Broward County Florida when he was thirteen. There were few things a good old boy such as randy loved more than pot. He would frequently sneak out of school just ahead to the beach and smoke smoke. Do by the age of fifteen. He was selling pot to his classmates. Even after he dropped out of high school he would continue to sell to his. GED Randy would say honestly. I didn't even think about it as drug dealing it was just a way. Okay for me to smoke without having to pay for Kumon tally. When did you first smoke? Pot Yeah Probably fourteen fourteen I think at that point I was too afraid of it because like there is on on my way to school. There is a tunnel that went under a freeway. Go through and like that's where like the the Estonians of the burnout so by smoke and they all kind of frightened me a little bit rightfully so they were kind of rough kids but I I it was never about that in high school. I thought like I think looking back on. It was pretty like dude intervene. Kinda like weird. I couldn't wait to smoke pot. Yeah Yeah I would've smoked pot way earlier if I were popular enough to have any friends. Yeah like years later I realized tons of kids I knew were smoking weed and they were like totally cool but it was just like those tunnel. Kids'll uh-huh scared me away from it is the first time I smoked was in college On top of a parking garage that was across the street from our dorm And of course like it was out of an apple. Of course yeah I think everybody's I Branches out of an apple and of course it didn't have any effect act on me and then the second time it did me and my boy tyler went back to our dorm room and we did freestyle raps over McNamara. She's a few hours. That's that's the way to do it. It was very sick. I mean when I was a kid like we'd culture was just so much it was just painted in such a different way. Yeah you know like it's fly out of lax with weed in your pocket. They were like we don't care some of these stores. La Look like the frigging apple store like men and it's crazy and it's like it's very convenient and you don't. You don't feel weird about buying pot but I feel like I definitely like missed out on like that. Like illicit elicit like. Yeah I used to smoke such crappy pot but the fact that there are people making billions of dollars off a weed right now and still people serving life sentences for possession national or selling is a huge problem that we should address maybe an another another day on another episode pats anyway it by the age of Nineteen Randy began working for construction company where he continued to sell it. Because he's not only a jug. Dili's Kinda just like a lazy like he's he jug dealer because like I don't know who's round man overtime it's clientele grew increasing the size of orders as well as prophets as sports illustrated. PUT IT in time. Joints turned into Baggies baggies. Turned into bag bags turned into bricks. rix became bales ails sales of a push. teed Johnston the BAGGIES. I can't do it slow anyway. Now it's hard. He's very good to the one thousand nine year. Old Randy drug dealing was the most promising opportunity yet he said. Let's just say I was definitely making more money. Then I made Neilan boards all day. I believe one of his last purchases on his first I just want to point out. How like good? This dude is at just sound clips. Yeah you know like yeah. Very romantic quotes. Yeah yeah one of his first purchases with his newfound wealth was a twenty seven foot magnum sports speedboat. He purchased for eighteen grand. Initially the boat was only. I used recreationally. He would jump waves and just you know cruise around there but before long an associate recommended he put that boat vote into quote commercial. Use like selling ice cream from the boat. James I doubt it. Oh I looked up these magnum votes This speedboat in particular is like so cool yeah just long as hell low fast. They're sick this guy's cool and and just like that Randy lanier move from being a low level drug dealer to a mid level trafficker in the timing. Couldn't have been better It it was the early nineteen seventies. It was a smuggler's Paradise Man. It was like the pirate days trafficking into the US specifically really from Columbia was still unknown. Threat that would soon become one of the biggest drug crazed sees in US history and a new exotic strain of marijuana called Colombian Colombian gold was being grown on Colombia's Guajira peninsula and it was beginning to flood the American black market. The arrival of Colombian gold fueled fueled a boom in America. Known as La Bonanza meeting. Better the mayor which loosely translates into the marijuana. Bonanza guys we gotTA Marijuana Bonanza Hands. Of course Florida was the best place to import such a large amount by the early eighties. About three quarters of the United States marijuana supply originated from Columbia Razi in his first mission. He he went to the Bahamas to pick up one ton of marijuana. So you're gonNA see like yeah I'm going to grab my boat to the middle of the ocean and pick pick up a ton of pot two thousand pounds a week it's crazy Randy showed up to these specified coordinates in the middle of the ocean and another other. Bigger boat would pull up next to them and the the we yeah. What's up guys like? And they transferred all the bales from the big boat into the whole of Randy's speedboat and then he would get the hell out of there all right thanks town to go back toot sweet right. I picture him just like wearing a cowboy like no shirt gene short. I'm imagining as not to become a in in the story from now. Yeah I think that's a good way to imagine This this technique was super common speedboats. Like Randy's were fast enough to evade the long long arm of the law and it wasn't difficult for smugglers to slip up the intercoastal waterway and hide a labyrinth of Florida swamps. According to a report one trafficker could earn a return investment of around one hundred fifteen percent so it made sense for randy to do this with a speedboat and naturally after you know I mean it sounds like this is like trying to get people to do it which they probably were you can get a return of one hundred and fifty. Why don't you come to this lunch at the Holiday Inn? And I'll I'll tell you all about a way that you can get up to one hundred and fifteen percent return on your investment with one Boron. We'll even Lisa the boat. Yeah very reasonable reasonable interest rates. Naturally ready was hooked. He did this trip. He did this kind of trip often. In spite of risks linear loved tempting fate eight and living on the edge of disaster for Kenny loggins lurk he had multiple close calls including one time almost sinking his boat as it was way down down so much by marijuana despite everything he frequently alluded capture by the US coastguard and received a twenty five percent. Cut of his delivery. Delivery seems like a lot. I mean he's taking all the risks to me. That's I guess he was just like a runner yes he wasn't dealing to the public anymore. Now he's there's like a guy from the ocean is a post mates for we. Yeah in a in a way. Yeah do you post Manson anymore. I use post meets way too much. I try to be waste free But you know sometimes you just you just want to pack of EMINEM. I know in one thousand nine hundred ninety six at the age of twenty two Lanier married his high school sweetheart. Pam uh-huh with her help. He opened a jet ski and boat rental shop near Fort. Lauderdale as a front to launder the money and present an air of legitimacy gene under the guise of a boat rental shop he soon purchased a sixty five foot trawler. I looked. I looked up with these are trawlers are basically really big boats votes There could be like recreational trawlers or fishing trawlers. Like just imagine a sixty five foot boat milk you can look it up Your you'll probably imagine the right thing. It's a big big boat with low. Yeah he got one of those with Got A lot of room. That's bigger than I thought. Yep Yep sixty five feet him with a boat this thing that is a thick composed he could smuggle directly from Columbia. No longer having to stop open meet a A mothership down to the Bahamas with each delivery he made with a sixty five foot boat he could smuggle over eighteen thousand pounds sounds of pot into the US that allowed sweet sweet dreams Enoug- soon despite massive quantities. He has now smuggling he was always smart smart about it. Never visiting import twice in a row. He would load up in the port of Santa Marta in Colombia and he would either doc in the US in in New Orleans San Francisco and sometimes bridgeport Connecticut Far Ways up the coast. Yeah I mean just looking at those three locations locations that's a huge spread Like some of those trips could take like a week. Some of them can take like three weeks to get there. You know that's crazy. Yeah smuggling muddling much like racing and comedy is all about timing Lanier loved loved the adrenaline rush of almost being caught doing something so illegal but he needed more one day while visiting an auto show that was taking place. Within the Miami Ame Convention Center Linear stumbled upon a booth that was sponsored by a local driving club. He immediately realized that racing would give him the high he needed and impulsively possibly signed up and that is when the racing career of Randy Lanier started in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight at the age of twenty four to the guys. I'm twenty six now. You don't even own one boat. I don't own a boat. Never smuggled shifts this dudes in his third career now. Yeah he started out as like get drug dealer. And he's a drug trafficker now owns a boat rental company. That's three and now he's like you know what man I think. I'm going to give this race car driving the try. It's awesome randy bought in nineteen fifty-six Porsche three five six speedster for seventy five hundred bucks and competed in the production class races at the SCC a southeast regional championships. Although he had no clue what he was doing he was a natural with each race. He proved drastically eventually winning the e production class in nineteen eighty at age. Twenty six. How old I am? I've never won any production class. Some feeling inadequate inadequate. But that's fine

Survey: 55 percent of Americans think we're doing enough to fight climate change

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Americans want to stop climate change. But how do they do it? I'm MPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner. This is climate cast. A new survey shows most Americans want to stop climate change. But only fifty five percent believe they're doing enough Jodie. Manning is director of marketing with carbon reduction organization cool effects well leading up to Earth Day, we talked about two thousand different Americans to try to understand how they feel about climate change and mostly about the role that carbon emissions are playing in it. Eighty two percent feel that carbon emissions play a major role in climate change. Although only about fifty five percent feel that they're doing enough to stop it before it becomes catastrophic. And what do you think the disconnect is there between those two numbers? Most Americans feel that it's a problem that they can't overcome that. It's too large of an issue or that government or businesses actually need to take more action, but it cool effect. What we found is that every individual action can actually have massive change over the last three years. We have actually reduced over seven hundred twenty five thousand metric tons of carbon pollution literally one ton at a time. So of the actions that people are taking which kind of actions or people adopting the most cycling changing their light bulbs, turning lights off those things are all really, really helpful. They're using reusable water bottles and they're bringing their own backs. But they're still so many more things that can actually be done. You can call your local electric company and request renewable energy. That's one of the biggest things that we could do because it helps us reduce our dependency on fossil fuel in full disclosure. I get one hundred percent of mile electric power from wind power through my local utility. It is pretty easy. It's simply a phone call or in some cases, going online. I see that almost sixty. Percent of respondents do not currently purchase electricity from renewable sources or driving electric car. That seems like a pretty big opportunity for greenhouse gas. Reductions how do you get people to take that step one, especially when we're talking about renewable energy most people think they have to install the solar panels themselves or somehow access wind power the more that we adopt those types of renewable energies on our grids and the Maureen request them the more. We can have them at any individual home Jodie manning, director of marketing with carbon reduction organization cool effects, thanks for sharing your insight today on climate. Thank you so much Paul. And thank you for all the work. You're doing. My name is Trevor Drake, I'm a program manager at the Great Plains institute. I live in Minneapolis. And I drive a twenty fifteen Nissan leaf. So I was on the fence about buying an e and my dad actually said if you're going to be working in this climate and energy space, you really have to. And that was the thing that gave me the confidence to go and make the purchase I've actually found it to be great. I love it. The range hasn't really been an issue at times where it's been an issue have been able to find a fast charger, and we also have a 'nother guess fueled vehicle. So for longer trips were able to use that and it's become our go around town car. So use it for work music for grocery shopping. Really anything we need that fits within the range, which is pretty big for the most part. I've just charged at home. They found that to be the most convenient and the easiest there are charters at goodwill locations, and those are the fast chargers Goto and people often ask me about it when they're and they're just interested to know more some people don't think they're viable. They think it's sort of an odd technology. And so you explain no it's just like a normal car. It's electric powered it's really nice there. Questions about the rain like how do you handle that? And you know, hasn't been an issue for me. So it's just people getting up to speed and learning about something that's new and understanding that it's it's actually a really viable option. That's climate cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter.

The Dangers Of Methane

"Here's a riddle for your dial. What do one hundred thirty six thousand cows and glacier flowing from an active ice-covered volcano have in common. They both move really slowly I was thinking about the fact that they both release about the same amount of methane per day. At least miss warm out. Scientists calculated that the salt may have cooled glacier in Iceland, which flows from the volcano Cutler releases up to forty one tonnes of methane from Meltwater a day during the summer months. That's a little too specific to make a good riddle on. But that is a surprising amount of methane for microbes to produce beneath the ice. Researchers think the volcano might be helping I the heat from the volcano might be increasing waterflow under the glacier moving the methane out faster. And Secondly, the volcano might be helping the methane stay methane usually when methane comes into contact with oxygen. It's converted to receive to buy methane consuming microbes so in Milwaukee, which has a lot of dissolved oxygen molecules comes into contact with a glacier bed. The methane the microbes produce there is converted to carbon dioxide, but when Meltwater Meese assault who glacier bed it also encounters gases from the volcano those guesses reduce the amount of oxygen in the water. So the methane remains methane as it dissolved in the water and flows out of the glacier fr. From where it can enter the atmosphere and function as a potent greenhouse gas is land in an article or full of his glacier, covered volcanoes. So it's something to keep an eye on. In the meantime, the microbes are complaining this moment of science comes from Indiana University. I'm Don glass and Cassandra.
