I'm david brancaccio. The biggest fuel pipeline in the country remains disabled today after hackers came looking for ransom colonial pipeline has now dispatched workers to manually open valves to move some fuel georgia the carolinas maryland and new jersey. The us requires most of the electric power grid to have protections against cyber attacks but for pipeline companies. Hardening against hackers only a suggestion not a rule. The head of the federal energy regulatory commission is saying now that needs to change marketplaces and the euler has been talking to people on the hunt for gas with some stations. Running dry in part because people are topping up. Just in case nicholas. Medley lives in pensacola florida with his wife. And two young kids ages two and four. He said from what he seeing. Just driving around town maybe. Seventy percent of the stations around here are really out any other. Thirty percent have long lines. I've prices and he drives a tesla so he's not hurting for gas but his wife drives a regular old minivan. And we're having carpool now. But she was wearing all on gas for the chaplain. That had happened. Lincoln benign there was no warning. No warning for mclean merrick. Either he lives in peachtree corners georgia coincidentally only about ten miles southeast of colonial pipelines headquarters. He says he's got an almost full tank right now and works about a mile from his home but he just hopes he doesn't have an emergency once.

It's taken delivery of an additional two million barrels of gasoline from refineries for deployment upon restart. But it didn't give any more details about when that actually would be in austin. I made dealer marketplace after a string of record highs yesterday mark the biggest sell-off on the stock market since february. The dow fell four hundred. Seventy three points one point four percent. The nasdaq closed down just slightly after bigger losses earlier. In the week this morning. Dow and s&p futures reached down moderately two tenths of a percent each triggering. Some of the selling the prospect of inflation in a recovering economy beset by supply disruptions higher interest rates make bonds not stocks more attractive in a bit. We'll get the latest word on inflation. The consumer price index for april. Here's marketplace's nova sappho last month. The consumer price index showed the biggest monthly gain in eight and a half years. Today's numbers are forecast to show. Inflation has moved higher again month to month analysts. Expect a two tenths of a percent gain. That doesn't sound too bad until you look at where we were a year ago by that measure the index could be up as much as three and a half percent the biggest jump in a decade. And we already have the anecdotal evidence higher prices for gas automobiles and some household goods. So does this change the calculus at the fed its pledged to leave interest rates alone and tolerate higher inflation in exchange for employment growth. Several fed governors in separate appearances yesterday suggested their current approach will not change whatever. Today's inflation numbers. The feds still expects an increase to be short-lived.

So it looks at small increases in the unemployment rate and it says now is the time to help people. We are in a recession when the pandemic started unemployment shot up ten percentage points. No question help was needed but a year on the math doesn't look the same. This crisis is so different. It's very hard to say when we will be back on trag. She says the unemployment rate doesn't tell us much because people dropped out of the labor force during the pandemic due to worries about child. care health. better she says is to watch. How many jobs have come back. The economy lost twenty million last year. So we're only halfway back to normal. People are hurting so that means we keep helping them until they're back to work and it's gotta be everybody the three hundred dollars. A week of extra unemployment pay is set to run through september fourth but economist. Michael strain with the american enterprise institute says generous benefits could slow the recovery.

County commissioners voted tuesday to keep the county's millage rate the same as the twenty twenty rates the county governments overall millage rate which determines how much money a property owner owes and property taxes was set at fourteen point. Seven one mills that total millage rate number includes rates for several funds such as public safety service districts and the counties general fund which covers the costs of county services.

Means the county would only need to us about five hundred thousand dollars in reserve funds to balance the county's budget for this year although the county governments overall millage rate will stay. The same property owners could still end up paying more in property taxes. This fall depending on whether the value of their property increased and what kinds of exemptions they have it was just fun.

Only fifteen people would be able to speak during monthly business meetings of the school board with the public comment period limited to thirty minutes. The school board voted thursday to put the proposed policy change by state law. Only the school board can change policies for the district so all district officials can ask for. The change is ultimately up to the board members to decide whether to do the student leadership. Johns creek team ran a successful food. Drive this past week.

Jp edwards is with the city manager of peachtree corners. Brian johnson to find out all the details of curiosity. Labs also curiosity. Lab is a city created and operated living laboratory on for technology for mobility for cyber security so ultimately. It is a specific. I guess right away if you will a specific assemblage of parcels in roads in which the city decided to take this public infrastructure added a bunch of technology into it to facilitate the testing and demonstration of advanced in autonomous vehicles. For smart city technology connected vehicle Cybersecurity all sorts of technologies. That are out there so we ultimately decided to create this area this environment the sandbox if you will throw a bunch of technology toys in it and then tell the world hey why don't you come play in our sandbox perfect your technology invent new things But do it here. In in peachtree corners at tech park atlanta and we did that in the adage of if you build it they will come has been never been more true than it has been here. So companies from all over the world have the ability to come bring their futuristic technologies. Test them out in peachtree corners. That's correct so if you think about the evolution of technology the very first time technology needs to get tested. You need to do it. In a closed controlled laboratory environment a parking lot with a bunch of cones or abandoned airfield or in some cases you know some of these companies have actual tracks to do this very thing over time. The testing weeds out the wheat from the chaff. So to speak you get technology net at some point fails and you got to go back to the drawing board to perfect your scrap. Whatever or som- graduate. They passed all the things you can throw it in the closed environment and now it's time for it to go to the next step. Consider it going from crawling to walking. We'll where do you do that. You don't want to go from a closed environment like a close track to downtown atlanta in one. Joe i know. I don't wanna be in downtown atlanta if a vehicle went from close to downtown. Because there's too many variables. So where do you. We decided to create that. Walk face so you crawl in a closed environment. You walk here curiosity lab if you graduate here then you can run in downtown atlanta so we've created that intermediate step where there are people. There are hills and curves in tree canopy buildings but they're not so dance so concentrated so dynamic as an inner city as a downtown atlanta's you would get we created that intermediate step and we took some additional steps beyond just throwing a bunch of technology for instance we have general liability insurance coverage of a public route. One that we own that covers both driven and driverless vehicles on the same roadway. So you can test driverless vehicles on a roadway interacting with driven automobiles. Here curiosity lab would just did it not too long ago. Had to thomas shuttles on this three miles track Interacting with human driven on reveals all at the same time getting tested perfecting their you know their technology and You know hopefully that technology will see one day very soon in will look back and say wow. It was perfected here curiosity lap ryan. Johnson is the city manager. Impeached street corners in the future is coming the future is connected future and it is happening in. Peachtree corners would curiosity lab now brian. How many companies and how many jobs have come to the area because of the curiosity lab you have their impeach three corners So i'll start with the easier one. And that is we know for certain that there are two companies specifically who occupied between the two of them about a little over two hundred thousand square feet of empty commercial office buildings and brought about five hundred employees specifically here because when they were comparing other locations they were going to move their headquarters to the ultimately decided on curiosity lab because if for no other reason they love the synergy that curiosity lab had created within tech park. atlanta remember. Curiosity lab is is within the confines of technology park called tech park atlanta which was metro land is very first technology park on one side. That's easy because you know five hundred employees over two hundred thousand square feet of vacant office building just because of the now the other side you have a. It's almost immeasurable. The amount of activity we have. That's temporary and you know the temporary could mean do again just somebody here looking at it for a couple of hours and all they do is eat in a restaurant on the way out or they fill up their car on the way out of the way in we've had a lot of companies here testing for a couple of days visiting for a couple days staying in hotels with a number of partners and we have sixteen companies right now doing active testing on the lab that are here in some capacity is some of them are just in a hotel. Some have leased space for like six month periods of time. So it's kinda hard to say how much beyond the two companies that have decided to permanently locate their move their global headquarters here but in a certainly paid off in that we decided to do this for economic development purposes which is to generate activity and activity begets. More activity in that is curiosity. Lab has done a. We have become a pipeline. We have agreements with countries like israel of canada taiwan. These are companies that are using curiosity lab as a landing pad or companies from those countries coming to the states for whatever reason is to get in and maybe sometimes land softly get their bearings sometimes get support of before they go off and do great things. We of course hope that they do great things in peachtree corners. I if not. We'd like to have them stay in gwinnett county second if not at least like them to stay in metro atlanta georgia. But you know. We'll we'll miss one hundred percent of those companies that don't land here initially instead or landing in new york city or silicon valley or detroit michigan or wherever else if we can get them here then we have a better shot of all of us. Winning ryan johnson is the city manager impeach three corners ryan. The future of the world is a technology based future. It's a connected future in that future is happening right now. In peace tree corners. Brian what would you say to the people of gwinnett county for to give them bragging rights. What what are the bragging rights that they have with curiosity lab. It's fair to say that gwinnett county and all of the residents of gwinnett county can brag that curiosity lab is so one of a kind living laboratory in the world and the partnerships that we have countries that have created these pipelines. To us is is a pretty good indication of that. The second thing i will say is as a result of curiosity lab. We have had technology. Come through here. In companies interested in this location that have created technologies that are residents specifically or even greater than ours venetians living elsewhere in the county and and other people even outside County can take advantage of an example of that. We just opened the second largest electric vehicle charging hub in the state of georgia the largest one in metro atlanta. It is a sixteen station. Dc fast charging hub including over half of them are tesla charges which are proprietary. Why that's unique. Is these dc. Fast chargers allow you to charge of electric vehicle from zero to fully charged in under forty minutes and so our residents that have electric vehicles are benefiting from that because these companies said we wanna you have a ecosystem going in into electric vehicles. You've got some testing being done in know we have a solar roadway project here. We have solar panels installed on top of a section of our track connected to electric vehicle charging station in in partnership with a french company. And with another a living laboratory called array of here in in in south metro atlanta and this solar roadway is testing how effective Solar panels on roadways can be in generating electricity for electric vehicle charging station. Why that's important is because bias doing it. We got the attention of other players in the electric vehicle charging space. they're like. Hey what's this curiosity lab. They send representatives out here. They kick the tires. They look around the like holy cow. There's really something here. And so then. They come to us other k. Would you let us put in this charging hub pre soon again. Had the sim the symbiosis companies partnering with other ones. All wanting to do something happened to want. Do it here because of curiosity lap. So that's the other end of what how we all benefit is. We have technology that comes through here and it gets tested and sometimes it's either perfected in deployed or. Sometimes it just gets puts us on the radar of other companies. That are like well. We'd like to do provide x. Y. or z. And i could go on and on to you know touchscreen. Lcd monitors our town green. And you know so on and so forth but we have a lot of things that are residents and other residents of when county can benefit by coming to peachtree corners or through peace record.

He made his debut last year as a relief pitcher Starting pitcher for the marlins this year and he pitched against the braves wednesday night which is pretty cool and i had about twenty twenty-five family and friends. They're getting to see him pitch pitch pretty solid. Didn't get a win. But he left with a five three lead so he did his job. The marlins ended up one in an extra innings but a great showing for him. He's a he's often. I start through to starts. He's been he's been solid at a little bit of control issues in both games but probably that some of that scott new nurse starting for the first couple of times in your big league career. He's a kid that was a big time Athlete in high school. Not just a as a pitcher but as a as a hitter has well his victim hitter high school level. So it's good to see him doing well up in the pros and plan for them to do awesome but the marlins and another gwinnett county athlete. That's moving on to the next level. Tell me about kennedy shropshire a wrestler for mountainview. She's she's a big time wrestler and women's wrestling sports kinda taken off nationally She's going to iowa which is kind of the hubs of wrestling and the and the country but she's gonna russell for indian hills community college which is a number three nationally. This past season just too big time wrestling program there tricia probably a four year college and and make an impact eventually. But she's she's a kid. That's i mean you think of a female wrestler only rests on female. She was a choosing the lineup regularly against an indoor meets for the mountain view team russell against boys and then scored a lot of points. It was a key wrestler for a for mountain view is that they won the title in the in the region for the sixth straight time and made made it a state dole. So choose a kid. That was good enough to make the lineup. With shoes. Male or female. So she was a big time wrestling state championship as a senior had. A state runner finish in twenty nineteen couldn't wrestle the state tournament and twenty twenty but certainly an excellent high school career and look forward to seeing what she can do it. The the women's level in college and you said the college she's going to was ranked number three number three nationally in junior colleges so that should chill on her for very good for your college when she has a couple of good years there and we'll hammocks sports editor at the gwinnett daily post. Tell me about north gwinnett girls and boys tennis teams you know. It was a great week for north. One f- Kind of been the dominant team and and what's usually a very strong tennis region. But they've been untouchable here in the last several years. The girls one six times in a row just really been untouchable in that region of very deep team again in a ethic. They have high hopes for the for the playoffs coming up. They're they're pretty strong. Pretty solid top to bottom. Not a lot of weaknesses in that lineup. And coach katy massive. Thanks sustained can Can do very well in the state tournament on the boy side. The the boys the done pretty well. They've kind of locked down that region to a fourth straight year of winning the region there and that they're boys have been on four straight years without losing region match in the regular season or the region tournament so a pretty dominant run. They're loaded Talent lies more loaded than anyone Tennis team and i think they're they're definitely looking at state championship. Sustain that's That's got a lot a lot of single talents. Double steps. And i think they got a serious a chance at doing a coach star. Schuler plug her this week and she. She thinks A chance to make a run at a state championship. So are you saying that if you want to see some really good high school tennis nor cornets the one to go watch. That's the place to be. And what can we look forward to this weekend. Well what's It's the last week before. The estate playoffs Really cranked up and start next. Tuesday we're going to see about a month long state playoffs in all sports baseball. Still got to finish up some regular season stuff but the rest of the sports really hit the postseason hard area For our seven schools is monday at the providence club and shifting years back to this this friday. Thank you very good baseball. Game grayson brookwood. The play the third game of their three-game series this week and to the teams contending for region title there in region four grades one the first one this week on monday. One the second one on wednesdays. Fridays the rubber match not that series between the two of the top baseball teams in the state so I think. Friday games could be an interesting to watch.

Kicking back with Kettlerock Brewing
"This episode and every episode. The beer guy's radio show is brought to you by ironmonger brewing visit ironmonger at tapper marietta georgia or online at ironmonger brewing dot com. Opened up a tab. Grab a seat and pour a pint. It's time for the beer. Guy's radio show free beer brewery dedicated to the art science and enjoyment of craft beer with the be. We got now. Here are your host tim. Dennis and brian hewitt and welcome to the beer. Guy's radio show broadcasting from the beer guy's radio studios in marietta georgia and this week. We're talking with kettle rock brewing. I am tim denison with me. he's always is my good friend. And co host. Brian hewitt eight tenths of joining us. Today we have steven pt. Cfo and sterling pete the head brewer of kettle. Rock brewing under both founders. Of course as well we're gonna talk about the origins of cal rock. It means home brewing new beers and probably a little bit about the outdoors guys. Thanks for joining us. You're welcome we appreciate it. Yeah absolutely we've got some beers here. I believe we're into the blonde right. Now yes sir. And what's the name of the blonde and we'll get into the story. 'cause there's method to the mess that right. There is quite a theme so trail head is the name of the blonde and it is the beginning of your craft beer journey. Okay that makes sense. That style is kind of the beginning for a lot of people when it comes to craft beer journey so when people come in debris and they say gee i you know one of the big beers to which it i try. That's the one yard at the trail head. Absolutely it makes sense. Yeah clean simple beer. You'll scare someone off the big ip or something. If they're knew exactly to these kind of beers well good stuff. Thanks to join us. You know we're going to start out. There's a connection to you. A former guest homebrew and all that stuff. Pc mazur's yes which i'm assuming is peachtree corners. Yes masters you are some of the founding members of the club and j brantley. Who was our home. brewer of the year. yes in the best georgia beer awards that we did. I think two years ago he was through policy to a lot of fans here best maria. Yes go best over international you gotta admit for one man homebrew operation and so last year. He was only second but he'll tell you it took two guys to beat him. That's see there you go absolutely. Yeah yeah we've had j. n. Talk to him. You know after that. We hung out with him a couple times. He makes really nice beers now. Are you still involved with the homebrew club. Throws absolutely okay. Not for lack of trying to give it up. I mean saying hey we love doing this homebrew stuff. We love coming to the homebrew meetings. But if you feel like you want someone else to be the president of the club you should tell us because we're also okay with the right and somehow he's still the president from the very beginning this see. That's that's all there is to it right. I think that's okay. you know. It provides some longevity and it provides some leadership and he has very good organization compared to a number of us which really helps for the home brewing five one right. Yeah one so That seems to have worked out well for the club in. He's asked to kick us out yet so yet. They're still time still time. Yeah you know one thing. I've noticed homework clubs love to have the probers involved. You know they love to have them there and the sample their beers and share around that the the only time i've seen i don't know if complaints were just been grumblings. Is i know there were a couple beers. That kind of went pro but they still entered the homebrew competitions and then so when probers coming out of the homebrew competition with four medals. Get a little salt. You can see where that would be a little frustrating. But i will tell you that if you look at the banner. The facebook banner for the pc masters homebrew club. There's a guy standing in the middle of it. Along with all of us happens to be on his back porch because of the day we took that particular photo and that guy is wearing. Bg are shirt. it turns out of it. He opened the first brewery. In greenwich cool there you go see. He was there. He was there as a proper supporting harbors. What are some of the ways you guys interact with homebrew club. Now you're pros. Has it changed the way interact with them. I don't think it's really changed a lot One of the things that happened with the world turning upside down last year's we decided to meet outside and now we meet at what's dog days chicago dogs and burgers right next door to our brewery. Were right there right there. Next february more than our legalities involved with homebrew club and professional res. I think it gets a little. It gets a little. It does and the great thing about dog days is that they are. They don't serve alcohol. And that's the that's okay. There serve alcohol than you're eligible to do y. obi to well. I mean. I don't know about that but you are eligible to get a permit for an event that can happen. Ah turns out as much as every month which is what we do every month. Okay so that's how the legality is served. That's where we meet. It is nice and convenient to us that it's right next to the brewery it also means that for the brewery we don't need to worry about being a brew pub or trying to serve food because that's not our thing right but they serve fantastic chicago hotdogs and so if they bring them over to the burri that works us. You know. I know as our laws changed here in georgia. Two thousand seventeen. You know a lot of people took advantage of putting a restaurant in there. But i talked to quite a few brewers that they don't wanna do that. I'm not a restaurant tour brewer. That's what i wanna do. Is i want to brew beer and different places have done. You know whether it's the food trucks are. I know Very to deal with the pizza place up the street where they just they. Just run it down to you you know. They didn't really do delivery. They will bring peace over to your guests there so dog days. They had a problem the first weekend. Our grand opening weekend. They had people out the door they also had the internet ordering so they were struggling with keeping up and then they finally decided. Oh we can do pagers now. You go there you order your food. Come over to the brewery. Drink a beer. The pager goes off. You go grab your food. Come back over. Have another beer. It works great for us. Yeah and you don't have to set. They're not drinking beer to wait on your hotdog. Everybody wins. everybody wins. Well tim. I think it's time for us to get into the beers of the week now. It's time for our beer's of the week brought to you by the net craft beer and barbecue and downtown kennesaw georgia. The nest kennesaw dot com. Well brian has always. We've got a great list of beers to try here we've got a table full of crawlers from our friends kettle rock and we're going to try as many of them as we can. Yes we are. And i do want to thank the nest for sponsoring this segment brian. They sponsored this very segment. Guess what they've got coming up july third. What do they have coming up brian. It is their annual july third pig. And gator roast. Your fan of the rest. I am too so go up. Their craft beer hall smoked at. You've never seen a spectacle like that before so well. That's right stephen. Have you ever seen a whole smoked. Alex i have not saying there you go with the nest has got you covered july third. So thanks guys. We appreciate the sponsor and the segment cut rock bruin. I don't even know where to start here stephen. I'm going to mention a few that we're going to drink right now. We're in trail head correct. We can go down the trail as we mentioned. Sir you know what we're gonna mitch and a few here and as we get into each of them as we go through. But we've got a variable conditions as you're cattle sour. You start with a base kettle sour. And then you have flavorings. You can add at the brewery. Right that's correct. You also do a seltzer. Called base layer same thing just a basic seltzer. Know flavorings correct. And then you can choose your flavor there at the taproom right exactly. We got a tripping hazard a belgian triple at a nine point three percent which is probably what you should sip when you're sitting at home after the hike after the hike. Yes yes. High humidity hazy. Ip a mountain house milk out and bear tracks. We heavy so just a great selection of beers to get into brian. We're definitely gonna enjoy it. I'm lacking blonde ale. Yeah brian won't you tell us what's happening in the news. What's in the news. The beer guys have the scoop time for headlines so some sad news this week. Denver's iconic falling rock. Tap house has announced its shutting down after twenty four years in business due to falling rocks close proximity the colorado convention center and it's early embrace of craft beer and it's expensive tap list and bottle list. It became an essential part of the great american beer festival. Experience falling rock did Take a huge hit during the pandemic. That was only part of the problem. They've had problems ongoing for the past. Five years involving construction issues neighborhood changes supplier competition rapidly. Increasing costs as factors in this and Falling rock closer doors finally on sunday. June twenty seventh sat terrible very sad. We were actually there two years ago when we went to the cbc the craft brews conference. I visited in twenty sixteen. When i went out to my first b f. I say i. It's the only time i've been to went out to but there was an energy there You could definitely tell it was a great bar. Great tablets and everything so even though i just had the one visit i know the stories i know the connection to denver and jbs. So i know it's a big loss for denver in for the beer community who've have also sad to see him go for sure. We are listening to the bear. Guy's radio show.

So if you missed the broadcast get the podcast bear guys who is available in all popular and unpopular podcasting apps now. Let's get back to kennel. Rock brewing kettle rock bruin. We are currently sipping a we heavy. That is known as a bear tracks. Absolutely it's very tasty. We've got this one. At seven point. six percent. Scottish style malt forward with caramel and honey notes. It's tasty that's quite as we enjoy. There's a toasting the roasting us a warmth too. But it's not too heavy so it's we just we has heavy. Yeah so you could have this in warmer weather or cooler weather. It's a multi darker beer. Yes and has been very popular because it's really. It's not one of the cool kids styles right now. You know so. It's nice to hear that it's popular in the tap. Room's you know that people are drinking this app. Maybe it's coming back around. Well you know. I think this is style. That frequently has a bit of smoke maltin. It does this have mall in the grand. Bill or discipline does not have smoked malt. This is like a middle of the road recipe as as far as We have he goes There was a really good article about how we heavies are designed and what goes into them. I think it was in the bureau magazine last year. And i looked at that and they had stuff a kind of across the board for what makes the style i was like i want one. It's that's like really sensitive of style and in the middle of doesn't actually have smoked malt even though it's common for people to say that it turns out it doesn't actually have small. I always thought it did. And the reason i was saying that is. I think that there's a growing interest in smoked beers again or smoked malls in beer again. I've seen more of that recently. Than i have in quite a while honestly so i thought well there would be possibly a resurgence of interest in this beer as it is kind of a light entryway beer to for a lotta people for smokiness. So colpon. this doesn't have it but it's a good beer nonetheless to even without the smoke sterling. It gets brian hill of approval. There i was just trying to work in some smokeybear taco fair fair enough smoked beers. I like a little smoke. Maltin a beer where. Maybe it's not even mentioned that their smoke maltin at words just a little hint of a note where it's not. It's like a fine character is yeah a big stout something like that with a little sm- a we heavy with a little smoking out but i'm not like a big big smoke fan but again when we talked to Was it switch back and switch talk to them. They turn me a little bit because their approach to smoke. So i can't say i'm a total hader. Just not a huge fan. It has to be like an element as a part of the palate that you're using to construct a beer if it's the entire beer just smoke. It's one thing that will love donnay smoked beer but not okay. Not as kettle rock. We have on a homebrew scale. Donna smoked beer before where we actually smoked malter selves and we smoked it with megan and made an amazing. It made an amazing high gravity porter and it turns out that Really inspired by the dunk tank series. That that as we will be water. Does they made. They made the called pulled porter or border with austria foxborough and that was the inspiration and it was really good because i think they actually put them all on the smokers at fox with the butts right. Yeah okay in our. We put it on the grill and Fortunately or unfortunately were sampling. A number of beers that night and it was supposed to go. What four hours i think. Okay and around midnight we said whoops. It was a little longer than four hours. But that's okay and it turned out just grabs good. You know. I will turn out great. I'd like to smoke things. I'd i've done smoked sought which is great on various. Meet all kinds of stuff. And i did a smoked cheese but just fyi if you smoked cheese you have to cold cheese because the msa just a heads up i had melted right on top. Yeah yeah so and you've ever done something that like the instant you see the results of like i really should have known that i i did so you. If had some chips under move make everything under would be smoked champs toppings everything z. Genius real miniature ryan. Kesler rock brewing. Yeah you all this kind of story of the name. So there's a mountain cadillac or a cadillac is the geological top. new kettle. Rock is actually a mountain in north carolina. Okay it's not a huge mountain but it is a mountain. In north carolina keto rock is also a geological formation where glacier carves a kettle into the rock. So it's kettle rock and as i mentioned before our beers brewed and kettles iraq. Your taste buds right. And that's how you got brian to suggest. Open the cattle and you get a guitar. Riff player you go speakers. You can mount inside the brew kettle. That are heat resistant. water resistant. That tall of an order right Early and how long do you think it'd take you to get sick of guitar. Riff every time you got in your cattle. I don't know maybe two days old tapper like every time somebody's getting into the roquetas de they'll love that love it there because then sterling. We'd just sit there and torture of just keeping awesome. Be like remixing it. Yeah brian. i'm malaysia this one. There's something about rocket science there. Oh yeah yeah. I was looking around on. Your social media saw a reference to you sterling. Being a rocket scientist like is like a side. You decide jobs castle rock. What's going on there. So let's go back to. Everyone has a fulltime job. I'm the only one is full time. Because i guess i retired last year at kelly. An la for allegedly now. My fulltime job is cataract. Everyone else has in the family of four kids. My wife and my wife has a fulltime job. Sterling has his time job and as a rocket scientist. Now you can explain your okay. I feel like i've been put on a pedestal or something. It sounds pretty foolish to so. I actually my day job. Is i work for georgia tech. I work in the aerospace engineering department at georgia tech and i work for the space systems design lab. That's an organization. I am the manager for the flight. hardware lab. That's a space. I know they both labs so. It's a little confusing But what that means. Is that a lot of the hardware that goes to space that is built on the academic side meaning not the research group but georgia tech proper goes through my lab at georgia tech and we build cubesats. We've had a number of cubesats. They've gone through we build. There's a professor actually the one i typically work with it does propulsion systems. And that's where the rocket science comes in Were building in fact. We're we just shipped a propulsion system for the lunar flashlight mission which is a jpl mission. Jpl is a part of nasa and the lunar flashlight mission is going on the artists one rocket to the moon to look at the salt. The polar ice caps and try to find water on on moon so crazy. Wow that's the oh yeah. I'm a rocket scientist. My degree is actually computer science. And what i do is make sure that these things work. And i provide the support. The required for students specifically typically grad students but also undergraduate students and researchers that are working on these things to make sure that technically they will work. That's pretty darn cool. And i like to brag two years ago when the falcon heavy went up you know on belcher. First commercial flight had three cubesats. It were going through his lab that were on. I mean that's pretty awesome. That is pretty now. Cubesats him is a return. cube satellites. Is that what that is so the nomenclature keeps at specifically means a ten centimeter by ten centimeters by ten centimeter unit. So that's a you and they come in different sizes one to one and a half three six twelve But they're basically you know who the size that you can hold between your hands. And these are satellites that go up go into orbit and all that that's right that's amazing that's crazy here. I thought it might have been exaggerations like no no this really stuff going into space rockets and everything have. You sent any easter malta. Or or anything like that. I've been really interested. In some of the experiments that have gone to other places the international space station. But i have not had the opportunity to put east on my own missions. There is mission that we supported this called bio sentinel which is using yeast as a tool to understand how radiation affects humans outside of the earth's magnetic protection. So that's crazy so this is fascinating so i'm enjoying this almost as much as beer almost as much. You're listening to the beer. Guy's radio show. We need to take a break.

A beer guys on facebook twitter and instagram. Now back to the guy's radio show welcome back to the guy's radio show. I want to give a quick shout. Out to one of our great radio. Affiliates kp db hd three ninety six point seven fm in forks washington catch. Beer guys are doing db every saturday at two pm local time. Now let's get back to kennel rock brewing sterling. I'm going to ask you about this and we're into your ip here. Which one are we drinking. Which is this one. Discipline is high humidity high humidity. Can you tell us about this. Yeah so this is was intended to be sort of a new england style kind of ip. It turns out. It's not. It's super hazy. Looking at it. it's pretty much paik. But it's uses a lot of idaho seven and some simcoe and it turns out. I'd never used idaho seven before. I made this beer. Okay and so. I didn't realize what i was getting into and it turns out a lot of. it's well it's very polarizing in the taproom it turns out that people either just absolutely love it. Want it to be even more hoppy than it is or they look at it and say You got something. That's not quite like that. This beer you're in luck so for my personal palate This one's kinda grassy. It's got a little a little bitter bite to not my preferred flavor profile. Just the the juicy tropical in that you know maybe ripe fruit and orange pregnant stuff. So just just not my personal preference brian. What do you think of it. I think it's pretty solid interesting. It looking at it. I was expecting more those tropical nuts. I'm a little surprised by some of the the intensity of the hops and does seem like that's a little bit a spike. It's but i could see why that would be really enjoyable for a lot of people that are into the bitter into the pa. So i think it's a good beer could be interesting to see what you can do with another hop. You know in this beer or you know maybe adapt this to change the name. I wouldn't call it a hazy ip. Because i think people automatically think east soft tropical so so hazy. West coast well. I'll hazy west as floral is some of the west coast ones. That i really like. I have a west coast. One coming and i also have a much juicier much less. Dank version of this is coming is going to be a a really labeled as new england style. Gotcha so i think at the end of the day it will have a place. But how do i put this into untapped so people can find it. Well it's opaque it's hard to call a standard ip. But it doesn't quite fit in any of the hazy listed categories. Yeah this is kind of orphan. Beer almost in that respect and other calling. A beer hazy. Ip a that. Shouldn't i mean. Hazy is just as scripture of visuals but as you know from the beer crowd these days. There's a lot of other expectations so when when people don't like this and we had to float trip okay. That was the session. I am actually the homebrew version of that. Two years ago won. Second place at the swannee. Beer fest okay. Cool cool so that one again. It was very popular in sold out. So we'll have some gruesome or so. I'm curious what you did. You have the new england style. What about this recipe. Did you change or did use completely rule the recipe. So i have a different hop that i'm using for the new england style is i'm not using it. Goes down to so really. It's idaho seven. It's the polarizing factor in this has a very distinctive profile. It's a pretty new hop. It's actually very good. In my opinion. It's just not what people are expecting out of new england nypd so when people come the tavern and say i i like as what have you got this as versus. I want to happiest thing. You have come in with that attitude. They probably want this. They come in with the hour. I kind of like a is. It's probably not the one they want when they say things like dark beers or i only drink loggers all know. Well then then you're pointing at trail. You've got it covered. Then you're ready for him Yes you mentioned sterling. you said. This beard didn't come out quite the way you wanted to. So how often is that an issue for you. How many times do you go to the drawing board before you say. This is what i want. Do you have a pilot system. I don't have a pilot. Bruce system now i did have a i mean i was doing home brewing right at the homebrew scale. In this case. I was not familiar with this hop and i was expecting it to be something. That's not very common Usually i have a better idea of what. I'm going to get than this and in this case i was trying to get anything that i could use to make an ip. Because we're in a position where we we. Can't you know contracts. Yeah so we're trying to get anything we can get off of the off the hop market. And we're able to get idaho seven so i got so it was one of this kind of big nebulous list of cool hops so i went and got that and then i wasn't quite expecting it to be what it was right. You gotta scrounge the hop. So when you see cuddle rocks. Ddh with fog with. You gotta do what you got okay. That's ekg is a high use atop for us. We usually usually dry cagey today. That's right delivered today. You know what. I imagine some of like maybe english style. Ips maybe they would drop with that possibly others definitely stuffy talion pills hotel with like ops. Yeah i was just thinking. I'm like oh i would like to some. That's i we probably have under the guise of italian bills or italian style pills nurse which are fairly popular right now. They're cool right now. The coca are drinking at this time. Yeah dean indeed so stephen. We talked a little bit about it. Earlier stephen pete sterling pete. You mentioned you the whole families involved with this right is it. Six pete's yes there is okay and some of the Spouses as well. Okay pete by association right. That's right yeah that's a partial pete's we joked that if you get involved with the family you probably get assimilated in. Okay got sean. Sean called me and said do today and he said hey. This is sean. Pete mentioned comments. Yes yes how is it working with the entire family. It can be difficult at times as you can imagine with any family. But in general it works out very well. We're very close family. Very high level of expectation of success. There is everyone follows through in sometimes. There's abrasion along the way but it works bryan can tell you working with me that i'm the most flexible and easy. Going guy up two zero now. You know what. I get things that i want a certain way in. It's in my head. And you know. I i can get snappy nippy just because i have a thought my head it's not tell me more you know i guess you'd have to. You do have to be patient understanding work well together and all that get that because we don't want the family moved off to the four corners of the country and next exactly and our family along the way we've been as parents involved with the kids but we haven't been helicopter. We've been a part of scouting a part of the schools apart of sports and typically were there and if they want want us than day half day more or less have to come to us most of the time. Gotcha as opposed to the helicopter parents that you know. I'm gonna make sure that my kid does this or whatever something to the effect of. Hey so you know.

The best part was one time. When i was able to be not only on the team but on the team to the roller hockey team with devon and krista and taylor off four roy squash run the same. That's good stuff. i'm sure there was. Nobody was saying. Hey it's a little skewed. You're you're favoring them like this all the pizzas no way on the level. Did you hockey brian.

Rock brewing gentlemen. We are onto milk stout a nice light easy drinking milk. Stout mountain house sterling. You want to tell us a little bit about this beer. This is basically a brewer style. So it's a pretty lights doubt within the style but it's it's a sweet stout scott lactose in it. That sort of brings up the body a little bit for something. That's so low. Abd scenario rosen and some greenest and it's very roasti and so it's provides a lot of flavor without really knocking on the floor. It's kind of like the session version of a stout sessional style. It's it's really nice. The roast i was just thinking about. It's like oh it's almost like a coffee with cream minute just close to that you know. Nice roasting and You could drink like a coffee without falling on the floor. Because it's four point two percent so nicely done depend on how you go at their. How many of these you're drinking. I mean you know just the crowd time to one dollars in might be a little rough breakfast lunch dinner quickly. You drink especially if you try to mix in that we heavy bay. Cuba could be right. There can be yeah stephen. We talked about family. The got the whole family involved there because that Compassion for the community yes. Nature environment are all very important to cut iraq right absolutely. So what are some of the things you do to engage with those elements so for right. Now what we've done is we've been able to engage One of the people we kinda ran into a renault on the side the can deal with their spent grain so instead of just putting in the trash you know we can actually give it to him. He's got like three thousand free range chickens. He's got the goats he's got alpacas and i forget if you've got other animals. He's pretty sure you can take five barrels worth of spent grain at a time. He's not sure how much he can do with the ten barrels. But we're gonna we're gonna see how it goes and At least we be able to deal with some spent grain that way. We actually did Spent grain doc biscuits and have done that in the past and and had that at One of our events or one of the pc corners events where they had dogs in and we had a the treats. They're ready for the pop. It was called bark at the park. Okay it was gotcha. We had spent green dog biscuits along with the craft sodas samples for lee The people that come along with dogs all right all right you know talking to the spent grain. I hadn't thought about this until just now but four five years ago. Any brewer in georgia could easily give their grain to a farmer. But now we've got triple the burris that we did five years ago. F get a little more crowded out there. We appreciate it but we got ten breweries here. That that are offering a spinnaker. Please please no more spent grain enough to happen the side of the road. Good for the piggies though. Are there any other uses or have you looked into that any yet for spent grain. We have not. I know that you can compost it. Okay you have to find a place to do that or Company that will deal with that yet. Because even you know when you're talking five or ten barrels that would add up magin sweetwater. I bet they've got some plan for their spring. I think they have a plan for it. I know it Georgia brewers guild. Creepers guild has had one of their vendors. Come by and say hey. We can deal with spent grain. But it's like in south georgia okay. Gotcha i'm assuming a certain level. If you produce a consistent amount of the same kind of grain like a fertilizing company would would take it on and use it to create fertilizing products certain point. You're going industrial with it. I would imagine. Just because of valls you create that. I would think so i know you can compost it and they know a sweetwater a monday night. You know the bigger breweries obviously need to deal with it. On new realm. They need to deal with it. So but they have a lot more volume than small breweries. Like us slow poor. Saw you have social fox over there. Us norcross cultivation near us. They might i don't know but they could be doing composting. Since they started from cultivation company. Right i i wonder if you could do like they make up. Fire logs like a press sawdust. Wonder if you could do spent grain fire there. You go people throwing out mind you press the moisture out views. The ever. they used to keep it going. That's it there's the business you do it. Through their technically human edible you can have spent grain biscardi that could be a fire log in humans. Yes exactly that's we'll talk about. Edible humans spent grain biscardi. That could double as a fire logger. A fire starter right. I mean razor or five four. Start a fire you learn. You don't have to a separate fire. Log and desert allies take a bite off of it and then you through the rest of the fire and actually a recent craft brewers guild meeting. There was a company that had the small logs of pressed wood. Why couldn't you do press grain. That's that's had all all the different anti-mosquito things in it say. And so you burn it and it gives off. That's that smoke. Citronella long as it was situated it was all the different one mellon lemongrass and all the things that the things we like in bugs hate. Exactly if you're talking about spent grain incense. I think if smell that a few bruises very intense us. Yeah occasionally google. I'm wondering if anybody's ever done a spic grain fire law because that seems like something. Yeah i'm probably not the first person to think of that. I would think that if i m than i really regret the fact that i said exactly exactly. That's one of the first things we've talked about in in the biggest things is that we want to be a part of the community where people come and enjoy sitting around. Actually someone came by and brian. You saw the fireplace. Yes sometime by early on and said oh by the way by reservation. Only know it's open ever wants to come by and sit on the couch. There's there's a sofa chairs on either side and actually it's a two sided fireplace so there some tables behind it and so. The mayor has come and sat there and and chatted so across a fireplace in a brewery with a with a nice couch next to it right right. Do you allow sleeping in your taproom. It's funny because taylor harper came in the other day with jason's leeman and taylor went over and sat down on the couch. Wow i could go to sleep here exact. That sounds like do. We can't have that in here. Taylor harper is the georgia bear. Yes he's helped us a lot with some of the laws that we've passed here and jason's liman is a lender. Ucf for breweries berliner. They're so good guys in were they come in As part of a guild meaning or taylor is our lawyer. Gotcha so that's where that came from. We we've talked jason in the past. It's it does happen to be the bank that we went with. But we've talked with him in guy though he's informed he's very involved in the industry and he and he did a great post on lincoln for us for kettle rock because he was doing a thing for themed breweries and he liked the fact that we have had that mountain house but more modern and yet mountain kind of thoughts to it so rustic luxury rustic and comfortable. I like it. It's polished rustic. Maybe you have a tree in your bathroom. As a recall right yes is right is it a little pine trees. Birch prop part of the structure was very interesting. Yes he made a point of me sake. Make sure you go in there and lean it over a little bit. These birches be tip We could have to edit that one out. You know you mentioned. I don't think we talked about it on the air. You've got some beers going into barrels. And i believe the one. We're drinking right now. The mountain house is going into a barrel correct. Actually not that one and the we have that we already had are both in barrels right now. Atlanta spirit whiskey barrels. The whiskey that was in there was fiddler. Okay were wet. Barrels that Jim sold to us. Jim was awesome. We went down near to talk to him about it. And we got some wet barrels which is great. Take those you very slowly. Turn them over when you have a lung out in Catch what's left in it or maybe leave it in. Maybe you shouldn't do so in any if you forgot. I guess you forgot. Is that like overly woody. What's left in there at the when you get the barrels when you get the wet barrels no it is it delightful if you've ever gone to restore they've had like a cask strength bottle. Yeah it's exactly that you guys let me know. Come over with some ziplock bags. A ziplock bag full of whiskey. Yes it is a barrel strength. whiskey. It's expensive but you can get it. Yeah and the difference between what falls out of a barrel and cask strength whisky at the liquor stores. The allegation sharp been strained out for al. Oh yeah you don't get many glass that way a little extra fiber for exactly the french press for. Yeah there you go okay. So i think so guys. Thank you so much for joining us. We really appreciate it.

Why Are Model S/X Delivery Times Growing Refresh Coming?
"Coming up on nine forty four. Why tesla model s x. delivery timelines growing. Is there a refresh coming. And should that be stick around and we'll discuss plus podcast day. Have thirty million. Electric cars will be on the road. In europe by the end of the decade terror is back with new. Ev and why pollstar is norway's car of the year. Well good morning. Good afternoon and evening. Wherever listing in the world. Welcome to news divy fest. One of the week. Monday fifth of december. My name is in league guide through every ab story over the weekend. So you don't have to. The european union is going to have at least thirty million zero emissions vehicles on the roads by twenty thirty as it seeks to stay Its member countries away from fossil fuels and combustion. This is according to a leaked secret draft document and same by reuters in a strategy due to be published sometime this week. We don't know when the european commission is gonna layout measures to tackle the quarter of the eu greenhouse gas emissions come from the transport sector according to royce's dot com. It's a huge step up from the one point. Eight million electric and plug in hybrid vehicles registered in europe. At the end of last year the eu will propose tighter co two emissions standards for cars and vans from twenty twenty five on the draft documents. Says they could be expanded to the buses as well and this is important because europe is such a big car market in okay. We won't be part of that after the first of january however it's such a massive comaq the if if europe does something if california does something if china's something you've really got to make a good business case global comic it to say well we'll make a the isn't going to be available in that market and don't get me wrong it happens. Vw making the id three no selling it. In north america bmw. Making the i x three not selling in the us and it goes both ways so oh asti four to making vs on the platform not global costs only for europe. So you know. It's not as if every car has to be a global but when an area as big as the european union say we want thirty million zero emissions vehicles on the road in nine years time. It's such a big deal and impacts a global market so of course. I'm pretty chuffed about this. Can't wait to see the document. Hopefully reuters pretty much on the money with this. And as i previously reported the forthcoming what's known as euro. Seven emission standards. They are achievable now. Spike an automotive engineer who works not a comic was anymore. I've spoken to somebody who works in the sector and it's his job to work on vehicle emissions for major company and was off the record and he was saying look. You're seven is achievable. It's not as if the comic is meet euro seven whenever it's announced but it'll mean a lot more hybrids a lot more batteries lot more battery technology taking the strain of those moments when combustion causes spewing out the most emissions. It's also going to increase the costs. Ashley for carmakers to meet the standards and possibly to increase the purchase price of the calls as well so he was saying look. It's his job to work on meeting emission standards and even he's saying just go electric just just like just go electric. Now it's going to be. You can do it but it's going to be so hard so you've really got to sell a combustion car when the euro seven emissions standards come out. The german car lobby have already made that case. And this isn't even in stone yet. But the german car lobby spitting dummy out and calling for synthetic fuels instead hydrogen. Of course there's so many vested interests in you're going to a filling station. Somebody else sets the price. They hate the idea of filling up your car with clean green power from the roof of your house or even study a choice of where to go in a choice of price. They would much rather the petrol and diesel stations for hydrogen stations. And then they've got you on the hook for the next fifty or eighty years or whatever so suits them doesn't sue us. It's good news. The vs a continued to make massive strides European union by the way that they want to see more hydrogen filling stations around europe by the twenty thirty. I forget the number of they've put on it. I'm going put investment into it but it's fabulous expensive to build one of them and that's if it lasts long enough not to blow up so good luck. They're right model lesson model x. The headline news. That i delivery timelines and now as long as seventeen weeks according to two reports. I've seen so. Why is that for some people. Wanting to order a new model and model x. the online design studio is showing that it could be a long long white. Some possible changes coming up. Next year is one on as to why reports drive tesla canada. I've also seen this reported by teslarati. And i think technica and so i'm tempted to go with this as being like people have seen this because when i went to do it myself just before i recorded the podcast. I went to the design studio even connected by. Us vpn you need to. You can just select united states a country in the menu of tesla website. But i did did a us vpn and said two to four weeks model s every configuration. Two to four weeks model x. every configuration two to four weeks. When i'm on the subject by the way jeeze how cheaper tesla's alma. Us tesla website might go. We pay so much more here off twenty percent. Vat to add on but only moly anyway. That's a diversion. So but i do believe these websites that at some point seventeen weeks were in yukon tessler of change that manually because they didn't like over the weekend news of rumors of changes coming because alls bones. The i why would you buy one now. White seventeen weeks and then get the new one room changes coming to the two. Most expensive vehicles in the lineup have been going on for years. Frankly and the model s. from the inside similar to how it was released from the outside similar to how it was released in two thousand twelve one of the most recent reimeas is all about project palladium new production lines for the updated. Versions of both vehicles refresh was hinted last month. Hearing europe is the case. Now i've also been into the design studio in the uk and every configuration of s and x says delivers march. Even i went through to place order and even at that stage. It says delivers march. So we'll wait and see it could just be a shipping thing. It just could be because they're going to close down the lines for some maintenance of christmas new year and also european like how big a european sales now quarterly deliveries for s and x mentioned. This while ago reminds you the numbers quarterly deliveries for s for the last year have floated around fifteen to seventeen thousand ignore covid quarter because it messed everything up but otherwise you know for for tesla who are gonna make half a million cars this year. Maybe a million calls next year. Why are they making two models which two models combine s next combined. Doing fifteen thousand. A quarter is nothing is insignificant. It's a footnote the best personally not that you asked my opinion. If you ask my opinion. I think they should firstly expel sexy. Secondly they lovely cars. They are premium also. The x is just the brilliant piece of design and fabulous cars. Only so if they could redesign the inside to look like the three in the why the cyber truck that's coming with the portrait landscape screen updated with the modern supply chain. Bits and bobs few more years. I'd love to see that. Because i love having those halo cars. Also the planet version of the x coming derived simply because lucid came out with the air. Let's be honest upset any woman. I say that it's the only reason the plaid versions out okay. Porsche tycoon. originally. But that spurred them into doing and then lucid spurred them into the actual specs numbers and that comes the minute. The website says last time. I checked late. Twenty twenty one. So i'm gonna been off the as in the x. And then have the platform of the s coming gonna be sticking around a lot to a refresh. I'm big fans of the cars but speaking without any emotion. Why do they even make no point insignificant. Anyway let's move on. What do you think. I'd love to know you can email me. You can leave a comment on the youtube show. You can Semyon email getting contact socials. What's your theory. Why is it seventeen weeks for the next Wanted we go to march. Go three months or more four months for those cars. Why did i see something different to what these other websites have been reporting. I'd love to let them know your thoughts and insights. Let's talk pollster. Next post to is norway's car of the year twenty twenty. Normally car of the year comes around now for the following year before before even into the year. But no in. No they do it. I i kinda properly actually. They've looked to the cars available this year. Gone it's the pollstar to crowned by an electric vehicle of course because it's no way not unusual. Suspect you would think it'd be model three or even the audi eight sean which has been the number one seller and still is the number one seller in norway loved the h. But then again. They left two in norway as well. Good trailer in no way. Any the the scandinavian countries we could trailer and so i'm not surprised the each on is doing well however the jurors chose account but does have a bit of scandi. Dna running through the poll start to local experts decided. The chinese built but swedish designed electric car was a great joy to drive at a reasonable price. Point and quite a volvos post to has not been without issue had a recall already The also evolution described it as riddled with us. I wouldn't go that fall to be honest with you. However the sales on great for illinois there in eighteenth position one thousand eight hundred and five lost count Surveys knows if it's number one in the sales charts but yuck pulse dot great nicely designed good technology. No i've driven one yet but very much like to have one in the driveway a few weeks or a month side right. Let's talk about app tara next a name. That was semi familiar. Hurt the named tara. But i mentioned this to my. Us friends on the inside as podcast last week with the tomomi particularly. I wanna mention this the dome as well really excited about apple tara because it's back with a brand new v and up tara which makes the three wheeled evey to the front one of the back. doesn't need challenging. They say wherever we heard this before. Sola covid gaas app. Tara lipinski shuttered in twenty eleven. They filed to secure funding for the three wheeler car. And it was no more. They're back with a brand new sola covered electric vehicle which they say never needs charging good headline loads of headlines. Actually over the weekend top model has a battery of one hundred kilowatt hours with a thousand miles of range now looked at the pictures. It's a. it's a ten minute youtube video as well. The biggest of three wheelers. How on earth one hundred kilowatt hour battery underneath this well. Maybe they haven't because this is a pre production prototype an engineering prototype. If you like just doesn't seem room for one hundred kilowatt hours. Well you know. I may be wrong. The into the verge. The new three wheeled two person adult plus pet vic has solar roof of rape forty-five miles of range a date. So if you only do that in your commute you'll never need to plug the thing in but when you do plug it in got two thousand miles of range out of it is. It's a sifi car right out of the jetsons this thing because it's very very aerodynamic drag coefficient of zero point one three the model three the model three in comparison is zero point two three the volkswagen ninety four zero point two eight so it's super slippery front wheel drive north to sixteen five point five seconds there's an all-wheel-drive version of by which i mean a three wheel drive version which goes north to sixty in three point. Five seconds Talk veteran so each of the wheels can be started and stopped according to what you need to do for best traction and there's an interesting to the around this Tom at inside vs says the around two minutes fifty five in the youtube video. That tara put out you see the charging. The cop being plugged in and the connector is a tesla plug and socket that is going into is a tesla sockets. A tesla connector. Now this is obviously something to look very familiar to tesla in north america. Here we use the ccs combo plug butts for those. That are familiar with a little three. Pin tesla connector yet. It's that on the app terra There is maybe some deal. Tara have done with tesla to use that charging technology would be a coup for company. This small with a handful of employees and customers are no vehicles had access to the. Us's largest network of dc false charges it would be astounding to me means they would be allowing customers to use the supercharging network for a fee. So tesla always maintained that they are open to allowing others to use the network. If i can come up to their standards and they said that nobody else comes up to their standards. Which is why. Nobody else uses the supercharging network. The cost of admission has been too high. We know firsthand that to legacy automakers reached out to tessler in the past to collaborate. But the deal wasn't done now one thing. The white four is the online so app tara doing online q in december ninth. We will find out more. Somebody will say. look video. Your car as tesla connector. Why in the comments section of inside the user. No fuel says it's classified as a motorcycle from what i've heard so no seven and a half thousand dollar rebate. So that's an interesting thing actually in the us you wouldn't get the incentive and maybe that affects the kind of crush test than it has to pass as well look. It's a small ferry quirky. Three huila of driving needs to move one or two people and a pet around super efficiently. And you want to stay cool when it's hot and dry when it's raining this is like why have a massive suv at a big tangle. You drive around so interesting stuff. Why would a company. This small have access to tesla's best engineering. This is a prototype version. Why would they have access to tesla. Believe it so. I just have. They managed to build this engineering prototype from a scrapped. Tesla in taken out. One hundred kilowatt hour battery pack. I don't know where they put. It looks however somehow and then just use the charge but then why would you put it in your promo video because it prominently. It's not like a accidental short. Then taking a shot of the guarding plugged in. It's really confusing it yet. Wait and see on the ninth and we'll find out more staying in the us. The president elect has a plan to install half a million. Ev charging stations by the end of the decade charging plan could be good for the industry. Roughly fivefold increase in the nation's charging infrastructure and it's going to cost around five billion says the houston chronicle newspaper. Well the five hundred thousand units with the five hundred thousand charger. I would say because this is. How many is it plugs. Have to plug two heads on a charger in the can. Be a bit vague. Sometimes lets say half a million judges part of his platform when he was running for the job that was i've looked largely because well. Both campaigns were slightly crazy now. The industry hopes that he will stick with it. Though the infrastructure milestone would come fifty seven percent of the charging the us vehicles need by the end of the decade and would spock sales of some saying twenty five million electric cars and trucks by the end of the decade forecast. It by bloomberg. And he f- right now. Nine hundred thousand public charging plugs. Twenty eight thousand stations according to the energy department however one in five of those is a tesla plug only one. Ted is fuss georgia policy. If you ask me this is important because whether you are you. Know biden trump. Whatever whether you want eve or co policy provides guidance and security for investment so if this particular administration is building up and saying we're gonna spend you get congress but five billion on putting in charges. It provides guidance investment for carmakers for charging companies for utilities for associated sectors. It's what china's been doing already for a very long time. It needs to be done and he got the spending through will be maintained. I don't know any of that but it would be amazing if even a portion of this came off because for a long time been talking about the infrastructure issue and how the rest of the world compared with china who can do things in a certain white because of the way the country is run and who pays for it like is why to hydrogen fans about the. It's going to be amazing hudgens. Definitely the also. And i said well who's paying for it governments aren't gonna pay for it. European commission or european money might go a little bit of the white car. Companies won't pay for the hydrogen infrastructure. Then i'm gonna get together and pay for them so it's too expensive public going to pay for it It and there's no answer and the same to an extent with charging. So that's what tesla did it themselves. So lots of private money is coming to the sector in the last ten years that building out charging that works. You're seeing that. Hopefully those companies have got some so path to profitability in an hour. I y that makes sense for them. But certainly the government coming along in the us and inside an extra five billion into charging. That would be mega mega mega. We'll watch it closely. Staying with politics interests makes is important. Britain's competition regulator said that you're going to study whether the false growing industry an an an is working well with drivers dealing with charging research has showed recently. The range anxiety was a concern for some consumers. You hadn't driven a navy before. I hate that phrase i try never to use it however it doesn't mean it's like petrol anxiety. Just run out of petrol. Like i know people do all the time they got all. I could never buy even if you run out. Well i can. Patrick if you run out same question anyway. So the out competition regulate to look at the industry and make sure that it's fit for purpose. According to also block there were twenty thousand charge points in the uk up from fifteen hundred in twenty eleven. Morgan be needed. And the which is a competition commission will not the competition commission but the The we'll look at how to develop the competitive sector and also attract private money into it because drivers the publicly the best service from charge points. But who is gonna pay for again. Like i say this is a government thing these our government body. And so if you would like to have look this. Alpo linked to the uk government site. Because they're looking for your thoughts says the cna has launched a market study into electric vehicle charging in the uk. We consider two broad themes how to develop a competitive sector while maintaining private investment and how to ensure people using electric vehicle charging points have confidence. They can get the best out of the service. Are you going into fifth january to get your thoughts in the gulf website and then by next december they will publish what the industry has just to do. And it's interesting to people like industry bodies regulators local authorities consumer groups. All say not anybody says but as a community of like minded people thoughts in on this as well and that's the key it's confidence so it's not always about having blanketing the country with charge points because electric already in every street in in the country. So we've got electrcity.
