"Today. We're going to talk about the domestication and radiation of Pumpkins. It's the season, right? It's time to talk about Pumpkins and it's funny because we originally did this topic about. Four years ago. Only, the recording didn't work so well. So it's taken me a little wild catch up with our guest again. So we're speaking with professor. Harry. Paris. He's a senior researcher in vegetable crops at the balcony centers. N- Avai our campus in northern Israel. So welcome to the podcast again Dr Paris Thank. You Kevin. It's very good to be here. It's good to talk to you. It was very nice to hear your voice. I'm here in Florida and were here for a while a research visitor, right? That's right. I was in Florida twice on Sabbatical wants at your campus the US campus in Gainesville another time at the campus in Fort Pierce. Two places here in that you're familiar with I'm actually out in. Archer. So I'm south west of campus. You might remember that little town that you did on the way to see her keys archer roadway isn't it from Gainesville to archer? That's right. Yeah. About about twenty minutes out of town and and and and I actually am married to a farmer who she grows pumpkins. So So this is perfect. I know a little bit more about than I did last time we talked. But we're GONNA talk about Pumpkins and so what is this thing? We call a Pumpkin? Well Pumpkin and is around fruit. And, pumpkins belong to the genus superb atop and in capita we have fruits that are edible. These are full pumpkin squash and we have fruits that are usually small and bitter and generally inedible those a cold Gorz. The around edible fruits are cold pumpkins and the fruits that are not round butter edible cold squash. That's general lingo. That's generally the way that. Talk about them you don't think about. Zucchini as being a Pumpkin Zucchini squash or a crook nick his crook neck squash. It's a squash not a pumpkin. Pumpkins our the kinds of things. You just WanNa pick in and pick up off the ground and hug. Nice round. They are edible, other also use for decoration. Well there's a couple of kind of. That we see here in Florida that seem to do better than you know the big Halloween type of Pumpkin on there's things called seminal Pumpkin Another thing that we have that leaders call it tropical Pumpkin, but these seem to do very well in the in the heat of this region. Is. There is a lot of diversity aside from the you know decorative Pumpkin that we sometimes think about. Oh, this quite a bit of diversity in the Genus Kirpa capita. We have three species that are widely distributed in cultivation round the world. We have the familiar halloween decade or Pumpkins they belong to one species cold credit to people. And then also at Halloween, you see these giant gins these belong to the species. Appropriately. Named Carpet Maxima. And then finally, we have the tropical pumpkin seminal pumpkin and squash they all belong to the third species, who Kirby tumble sculptor. And People is native to North America. That is native. It grows wild to the ancestors of all the Pumpkins and wild gourds growing in what is now the United States and Is. Worth ultimate ancestors of the. Pumpkins. Whilst. credit the Maxima the giant Pumpkins, Ankara, Demos Scotta. The tropical pump in on both very likely native to South America who it's Scotto to tropical northern part stuff America. Okay I didn't know that. So the so these are South American origin. and. The people, North American. People's our North American. Maximum. Yes. Okay and so they the if we if we focus on Maxima and focus on most gotta those are coming from South America when. who was the original domesticated and did they find these were indigenous peoples of of the Americas but what did they find useful about the Pumpkin? Okay well, perhaps each species might have been domesticated for different reasons offer more than one reason. Capital Scott I suspect I suspect I don't know. But I suspect was first domesticated for use of its fruits, probably the young roots and then the mature fruits because they. what happens in primitive or wild gourd is that they they ripe fruits midshow fruits tend to dry out and be very fibrous. whereas the young truth sal you could.

"Chicago Bears Winning Ugly" with Olin Kreutz - Episode 033 - burst 02
"They gave Robert Quinn 70 million additives. Okay, the Bears offensive line, we all know needed help so they went on and got Germain ifedi for league minimum. So now now we're not very confused why the Bears all kind is not plain great football game right now, right and it's just even when I when I used to play for the Bears for years people would ask me that question what's wrong with the Bears offensive line and and trying to be a good teammate, I wouldn't say a word but my what I wanted to say, I have you looked at the draft pick since we got here right? Have you have you looked at who we've signed? I remembered 2009 the offensive line was terrible and and I had a conversation with some of the month. We gotta we really need to improve our offense right? We're going to get get color killed here. And so what they did is around the side Julius Peppers, they put another Hall of Famer on a defense of Brian Urlacher and in the club. Discontinue the next year why is your offensive line so bad and I just keep looking at the people would ask the question that they man. I mean, all you have to do is look at draft picks and look at who we sign is free agent and you figure out why we don't play very often decided the line. Yeah, they're buying Toyota's on the offensive line and Porsches on defense. So it's a little it's a little different. Sorry about that chase of go ahead with the exception of the offensive line. Which what other unit on the entire team. Do you think needs improve the most in order for the Bears to validate their their Good Start? You know, what I what I'd like to see an improvement on is David Montgomery just or somebody. I don't know who they'll get artavis Pierce or or Cordarrelle Patterson or so. You know, what I'm getting to is when when all Chris lines does give me your whole you have to hit it right and and here's a problem with David Montgomery, even if you know, I love the way he played he's not going to break two or three tackles and go to the house. So the birth Are missing that kind of player. I'd like to see them improve their with their running game and their offensive line working together. Cuz look at here's the here's the honest truth about the Bears to be honest with you. I'm an expert on it. There's not a lot of talent there and they have to they have to get in a room somewhere and they have to admit that to themselves. So when you don't have to have a lot of talent you you have to be all in by that I mean, you have to contract your details, you have to give maximum effort on every play. You have to be better than the sum of your cock. So when you asked me where they have to approve by position-wise, what they have to do is they have to improve all eleven guys have to be a well-oiled machine artists authors really doesn't have a chance so they have to go in every time thinking this is a gang fight. It's also 11:00 working together to pull this boat on a field do everything right. For example. You cannot on 34 come across the middle and a crossroad like Miller did and then run backwards you can do that. Okay, the offensive line has to be able to recognize run flip pick em up and give their running back or Kris and only way you pick a run place up is you all work together really really? Well. What do you think it's going to take because clearly no matter how many times you win like, you said earlier like all the matters at the end of the day just wait in the Bears have done that so
Interview with Curtis Pierce Author of "Pacific on the Right: Two Pilots, One Airplane, a Lifetime of Memories"
"That is the book about flying down at Chile and first of all. I guess the question is why in the world did you fly a one seventy two from where you aren't Phoenix all the way down to Santiago Chile you could have just put it in a crate ship. Well, that's a that's a good question and I guess I'll answer it with a with a quick story I would instructor for several years and loved instructing I love teaching I. Had I don't know forty fifty students that I did sign offs four and countless other students that were you know checkouts and be Afars and and so on. But I especially my private students I always. Trying to instill in them the idea that that this is something that you you're going to do forever you want to get that certificate you WanNa keep it current you wanna find that joy if lying the rest of us have already figured out and one of the ways that I told them to kind of do that or suggested. Is that they avoid the trap of the Hundred Dollar Hamburger in my time as an instructor I saw so many students would you know get their their private and they would fly for a couple years? They'd go have breakfast. You know an hour away couple of hours away and whatever, and just do kind of. You know little runs day trips and stuff and they got bored because you know after a while you've been all the places that are in our way and you know you, you've already had every dish on the menu at your favorite airport restaurant and then you get bored. And so I I always told my students you know You know rent the plane overnight go places take your family you know make it make it kind of a gateway to all these experiences that you can't have with the airlines are or just by road tripping around. And one of my students who really took that to heart and he bought a brand new Cessna one, seventy, two and told me hey I I. WanNa buy this plane and I want to fly it to Chile after I, pick it up and I said. And you know you can just take the wings off and put it in a container and You know in a couple of months it'll be waiting for you. And he laughed he goes well, aren't you the guy that told me I should go fly and have adventures and not just do the hunter dollar hamburger and I said well yeah. And so that was how we came to do it. He he was my private student he bought the airplane delivered. maybe a month or two before he got his private we spent another month or two of getting the equipment we needed and flying off the I fifty hours on the engine. You know to go through the break in period so we could switch to regular oil. And obviously, you know we didn't want to be surprised by any bugs or any any issues with the airplane that we might find. We didn't have any and so we we did that fifty hours and then we on a very cold November morning in Scottsdale Arizona we we took off for Santa Iago. Wow and that's But there's a little bit of planning ahead though before we just jumped on the plane and win so tells us a little bit about that as far as going down because I'm sure it took like a month or a month or whatever to get down there. How did you go about especially with a brand new student planning a trip through multiple countries, different types of aerospace down to Chile well it started out with him saying, how do we do this and me saying you know I've never actually flown out of the country before. The my student who became my very good friend that where we're still very good friends to this day more than twenty years later. He was a very successful businessman from Chile. had businesses all over central and south. America. was very well versed in business and in traveling and kind of negotiating the red tape of doing business in other countries, and so he he didn't know the nation part of it, but but he was already a depth kind of weaving his way through bureaucracy. And what I brought to the table was obviously you had a bad prion, two thousand and fifteen hundred hours at that time. So I've been flying for while. and so I kind of knew the airplane part of it but the actual planning basically started with me saying, Hey, let's just call planning company and be done with it. Just send US everything and we'll send them a check. Well, it turns out that there's not a single planning company that will touch a piston airplane they they only do jets and so we basically did it on her own. We found an F., B. O. and Chile that was willing to help us a little bit while we were on the road this was. Cell phones were around but not too many people had them, and certainly an international plans were not a thing. So. We kind of needed somebody in real time could assist us. But for the most part we we searched out all the permits ourselves just. was basically you know cold calling the various agencies in in all the different countries we plan to land in and just got the permits we had email, and so most of it was done by email I spoke a little bit of Spanish but it wasn't great and so he did most of the communicating and I did kind of logistical planning of okay. We're in a one, seventy two we can go about four hours, and so we mapped out our stops and figured out you know what would be technical stop where we would just get gas and keep on going and then what stops would be overnight stops where we would have to clear customs and Have permission to stay on an overnight basis, and so it it took about six months I kept a journal and I still have all my notes you know phone numbers and email addresses for all these different agencies and when I contacted who and kept tractable of all the permits as they came in But we we kind of had a date set. We wanted to hit the weather so that it wasn't too hot wasn't too cold on either end because obviously the seasons are opposite and in south, America. So we had to kind of thread the needle weather wise So we started pretty early but by. Probably late September early October we had everything lined up that we needed one looking at the at the math here I had to refresh my geography I guess. Just just looking at the root, you'd have to take up the one, seventy two. You'RE NOT GONNA fly over the Pacific Ocean right? Right. Right there. So I mean just down obviously from Arizona through Mexico and. Guatemala Nicaragua to be fifteen countries or something along the way. It was eleven, countries, eleven. Affair yes. And and being a one, seventy two you probably had to stop and most of them I'd imagine. Or Eight. Now we didn't use. We didn't use bladder tanks. The airplane was completely unmodified so like I said, you know that airplane Was a sixty gallon usable airplane or no sorry fifty gallon US airplane. So burning ten gallons and our meant for hours and we we needed a place to land. So we we based. All of our flight planning on that was that we we couldn't go any more than four hours,

Arika Pierce on Bridging the Gap with Millennials
"Eric Pearce on dose of leadership. Welcome to the show. Hi, thank you so much for having me. I'm excited to be here. Excited to have you on. Talking about this millennials in shows almost eight years old and I've had. A handful of guests and we've kind of we've broached this topic and just from my own experience and. I think millennials get a bad rap in the public pop culture. Absolutely. You know what I'm talking about right. I mean it's just so yeah. Oh. Yeah. They're just sitting around having avocado toast all day. I love that Avocado Toast. Yeah you're right. But I've met some really fascinating millennials worked with a mini and I tell you what the positive side of millennials that I see I see in the millennials, which is different than I think my generation genetics. Is that they. Are the ones that I've come across a positive ones they want to be part of something bigger than themselves, and that is a huge part of my message here on this show and I think of leadership. I think people join organizations or or those organizations where I've worked at I have fond memories, ring cores I always go back to that. Right had fond memories of that and it's because. I felt like I was part of something bigger than myself and I was, and I think that's what by and large the millennials that I've come across at are positive. Want what what do you think when you hear that? Absolutely I, mean, I think that's one of the things that I really love about this generation is that they want to be a part of a bigger purpose. They want to know their why that's incredibly important to them. Even you know whether they're twenty four year old millennial or the thirty nine year old millennials They're really wanting to go a little bit deeper and so I think that's something that you know maybe this wasn't prioritize talked about another generations but you. Know. I think that maybe they're almost like the why? Like why? Why are we doing this? Why is this happening? How can we do this better? So certainly I think they're much more connected to trying to better understand you know what their purpose is and how they can make sure they live purposeful live, which can be a huge positive right I mean that's that's what I think we should we should latch onto now than the negative side of that is that Sometimes. There are some unrealistic expectations however, I can't. Be. Too critical because when I was in my twenty one thinks now I wanted things to happen sooner than later I. think that's just part of being in your twenties. Right I. Think you. You kind of have I think learning that kind of delayed gratification is an intentional skill that kind of comes with with age and experience I think. Well we'll certainly and I think you know one of the things that we've seen with millennials and I think technology plays a huge part. Is that they're used to things happening fast or quicker. You know I I'm forty. So I'm in the middle generation where I remember live before the Internet Laver member using encyclopedias, not Google things like that. But you know most millennials have grown up where it's just instant access you want to figure something out you WanNa. Do something you want to look something up you just go right to the computer and out to your phone. So I think that has really played a part even in their professional careers for feels like, okay I've been here. You know two months. What's next to the next level the job, right? Exactly. The. I. Pass for that because I understand where that comes from, and in fact, I would rather. I would almost kind of rather have that if I was working with the team and I had somebody that was kind of. Overly, ambitious I would rather rain that in instead of trying to get somebody to get gear if that makes sense, right? Sure. Yeah. For sure I kind of that ambition I think is critical and they are known the generation is known to be overly ambitious but to your point, it's much easier to reign it in than to skip someone who doesn't want to do anything at all absolutely I I would I would have any day I think that's a good problem to have as opposed to. You know having a C. or D. Player and trying to get him into being a I've spent and wasted many precious time and resources trying to do that right and I would rather it's much easier to pull somebody back and Raynham in. Absolutely. Yeah. So how did you? How did you find yourself? Saying hey yeah. This is my niche. This is my purpose. Why did you want to focus on this? Yes. So it's a question. I get all the time like you know you can't really go to school for you know to become a millennial leadership coach or at least not when I went to school they probably do have more those categories now but my my background is that I actually I'm a lawyer and when I got out of law school I am had a lot of debt and I was working a job that was not. Doing legal work but not really It was more focused on government relations work, and so I started looking for a lot of jobs that I knew would pay a lot more money so I could start paying my loss. and. So one of the jobs that I I applied for which I never thought I would get was the director level physician and I think I was twenty six at the time it was for publicly traded healthcare company, and it was really opening up their their DC office and and starting their their government relations there lobbying shop here in DC, and so I got the job and you know actually I was scared because I didn't even really know how to approach it but I excelled at it I really worked hard and by the time I was twenty eight. I was promoted to the first or not the I I became the youngest Vice President the company at Twenty eight and it was a you know kind of something cool that had happened and I did work hard. But I didn't have any what I would say were leadership management skills at the time I had never really led teams I had never manager department at never had that level of responsibility and so. I just became almost obsessed with how to be successful had to be a leader had a really you know make sure that I could shine anti read a lot of books went to seminars. This was before Youtube was as popular. Now as the go-to resource and I I really I studied leadership. I studied just being successful read a lot of John C. Maxwell Book No meet a lot of his books who to this day and You know because of that people started coming to me all the time air can read my resume review my resume I haven't interview. Can you help me here? I am you know had this issue at work? Can you work with me through it and I just realized that that was just something I really enjoy doing was helping folks you know sort of navigate their careers. Based upon some of the things I learn you know some of the things I had done wrong. I had done right and a couple years ago. I ended up writing a book called the millennials playbook to adulting just to put everything I had learned across you know. How to get a job how to keep a job? You know even limit of finance tips, mental health, physical health tips. As you know, sort of advocating adulting, put it on a book and just really focus on making sure it got out to the millennial generation and as a result of that really transformed into a millennial leadership coach where that is now my whole time oath guests and. It's what I love, and it's what I honestly feel is is my why is my purpose? So that's a very long answer. That's how I got here. Why

"The guy who did like this kind of interactive side scrolling Pixel Art gain about is Tokyo or is Japan cool any kind of gave this history of Japan and I think like talking about Nintendo in that kind of stuff is interesting. Interactive side scrolling. Experience can't remember the name of its killing me but it just got me thinking what a cool educational way to talk about something and make it engaging to and I don't know I like the idea of making an interactive game in in getting deeper into that amount of developer myself. At least four foremost I know enough development to be a very dangerous. That'd be something for me to explore. We're getting more into deeper into the interactive space. What is it that inspires you these days? How do you keep that that creative spark going for me? It's it's just like I learned a long time ago that you know not to get invested in my work so much that my identities wrapped up but my job because I think once you start doing that it's easy to get burnt out or get depressed about like certain things or not that I'm saying you shouldn't get any fulfillment the film out of your job. But I think it's really important for you to try and discover personal interest outside of that you know and for me I what inspires me in. It sounds once again like simple but I just like going on the Internet and just look in a cool shit. I I like looking at sidebar. A Bar I like it a of inspiration blogs but then I also kind of like think about what are ways for me to explore something in ticket back into my my work at the office you know. I like to explore different technologies. I like to do you know in my personal life. What actually inspires me is I? I love to read actually I I love reading science fiction I love reading novels amateur in a book club. It's so I'm in a book club in people are going to like okay. That's all right. Wow that's fancy that's the way I know we we meet at a bar in we. We talked about our book. Were having the bag before we actually start talking about the book but you know I think think for me. It's just kind of helped me expose myself out in. The designer. Was His name Tobias. Man Schneider thank you. Know the guy behind simplest and use the Spa Remember him saying Mike how he gets his inspiration from people outside of the industry and how little talks to people in the design industry. I mean I don't no no if I go that far but like you know I think it is useful to kind of live outside your bubble and just like you know sometimes like taking a step away from screen and I'm very technology technology focus. I'm not saying like put down your phones like Aurora. I'm saying just like find things that you enjoy and have fun with and I think you can learn how to connect those things together for for instance. I did a thing a few years ago in one of my act. She thinks my case studies. But like I did. This thing called we luncheon bro. which is like just Asto in Office term gray like where we going for lunch man like where we don't like my old. He he made his word document of just like lunches lunch spots restaurants in the area that kind of thing and I thought okay this is this is interesting. So how can I take that. Make something a little bit more accessible and interactive for people to Kinda help make better decisions during lunch in I. I kind of did that on my own time for the office. I made it a thing made it a little mobile mobile website and kind of fun to to kind of do that but I. It's just like one of those things were. I'm taking something from another part of my life in in kind kind of seeing. How can I apply my own personal skill sets to kind of enhance the experience for me? So that's kind of where I come from like. How do I find inspiration? Yeah I kind of just have my passions and interests and hobbies. I kind of think about. How can I inject that into my own kind of creative mind you a little bit? Yeah so what does success look like for you at this point in your career success you know I think success looks like I'm working on stuff I want to work on. I think success for me is I think having good synergy with your team I think for me. I think it's about man. That's a tough question. I think success. I'm still trying to figure that out myself but like I I would say I love where I'm at right now. In terms of my team I think success is like me to learn and I think this is one of the things. Tell people on my team all the time which is like especially in our industry in our field like interactive work. You always have to be learning. You always have to stay on top of things and I just have that passion around like just just making sure that I am moving ahead and success to me. Looks like I always have something on the horizon. I always am looking afford to the future. I'm always like I have something that is fulfilling Mike Creative passions and desires and you know people might recognize that maybe they don't I would guess success would be that people do recognize it. I guess maybe formally or informally or whatever but for me. I think this is a long time ago. I said this for me. Success is like me making something that people get a use or enjoy joy out of like was that functionally whether that's an APP or product or tool like making products that outlive me would be great but obviously as we talked about sometimes especially interactive design can be ephemeral. End Isn't last forever but I think making things that serve a purpose or function in. I want to kind of make things that are experiences that people enjoy in. Yeah that's where I would leave it at you know. I think just just getting some sort of satisfaction out of people utilizing whatever I make to serve their goals or needs. Yeah well you know. It's twenty only twenty. It's it's like the future now which is so wild about but like where do you see yourself in the next five years in twenty twenty-five what will well Alex Pearce be working on. What do you want to be working on? Maybe I'm designing a website for I hover board at right now. Currently an associate she creative director in. I love where I'm at right now. I love the mentorship and guidance as well as still being hands on I think five years I think still doing both those things. Thanks maybe at a higher scale hopefully at a higher scale or larger level. I think my goals are just continuing to just do Co. work it just remember that for me like where so lucky to kind of do the work that we do. You know a lot of people for them in e kind of WanNa make sure that I want to be clear about this. A lot of people like their job is not like their career or their their their first passionately. Sometimes a job is just a job and like everything outside of that. That's what they go to work to earn money to to to live their life and that's perfectly fine and that's that's great and for me like we're lucky because we get to take our passions and are are creative thinking we go to work and we get to express that Atwood and I used to joke like you know not a lot of people can go to work and their job is to kind of like just stick around on the Internet. You know like like my brother other. He's like a super genius. My brother he's like has three degrees in he's a VP over like he's actually in Atlanta actually he's a VP over at city. And and he's like a math genius. Math nerd A math whiz athlete in high school. Oh Hey congrats for him. He's he's he. He tried to explain to me his job. Once and I it just kind of flew over my head you know. I'm I got a lot of good grades in college but like math was not one of those classes on got great greats in unlike you which you're apparently a creative genius Zana matching go that far but I'm just I'm grateful for working on stuff that you know a lot of people. I WanNa make sure that people don't take that for granted especially if there's like a takeaway from this says that don't take what you're doing so search some people like Were doing work. That's going to change the world or you know I mean there's certain designed does have a very important an impact on people's lives and I think that's one of my goals to have my design work impact people's lives and positive in meaningful impactful way. But you know I think at the same time. Sometimes he just wanted me people smile. You know sometimes you want to just entertain people. Sometimes you just wanting to have fun I kinda did. That's kind of what I do. My portfolio said that was kind of a goal will. It's not for everybody but like I made something that you know and I remember one comment from a designer on twitter. He was just like thank you for making personal sites fun again in and and you know granted There certain flaws with the site. I think for overall maybe architecture standpoint but like I think the goal from e was just to kind of experiment airman half Feinman and do stuff and I want to be able to do that I think I think that's something I want people to remember. Just like we're really lucky just this half fine. Don't take yourself so seriously so just to kind of wrap things up here Alex. Where can our audience find out more about you and about your work on line they can go to my personal site and the Geek designer dot com? I'm on instagram quite a bit. It's at Alex. Jamal Pierce altogether altogether lower case. Obviously in I am also on pinterest strangely enough so if you WANNA see some random recipes that I like go on Pinterest you're not saying I think it's Jamal Pierce Pinterest. Something like that. If you see a guy a black guy's face and I have glasses beards. Probably me so. Yeah then I also still so have my black in history. Tumbler up going. It's been a little lapsed since I put an entries in So I need to get back into the flow of things for that but if you WANNA check that out there is that to you but otherwise. I'll be at home trying to finish the Irishman. Pray for me. I probably won't. I'm probably going to watch that. Six UNDERGRAD movie. That just dropped by Michael Bay so while we can binge watch a whole series of a show but then like a three and a half hour movie is too long and Dan you know in in that avengers endgame movie so I can sit through a long movie but you gotTa give me something man gotta be something all right. Well Alex Pierce. I want to thank you so much for coming on the show I mean well I I think thank you for. I guess it's coming back back on revisit path before you've been on here before seven years ago which is wild thing. I've been doing this now for seven years my God thus be an og. Yeah well. I think my good to see not only your your your growth as a designer and really your growth in your career but it also to see how uniquely approach projects. I guess you were talking about brand. CENTRIC design centric design. You know I think it's that level of of intelligence abouts the field and about the work that more people need to see I think just from in general yeah. Hopefully that will inspire more people. People don't want to get involved and you know even some small way you know like you said before you want people to not take themselves seriously but I think it's important to show that there are folks that are in this industry that you can bring that level of play to their work but on so be very serious and smart about it too so they so much for coming on on the show I appreciate it. Thank you glad to be back. Big.

Keep Pierce's name off the ballot. Let the front runners attack and weaken each other and then when the Mona's right make their move. Pierce responded if you and my other discreet friends think that the pride of our state the success of our cause can be observed by the use of my my name. The judge for me. In view of all the circumstances pierce was in but he told no one not even his wife Jane. The Democratic National Convention you mentioned began on Wednesday June first eighteen fifty two in Baltimore three days and thirty three ballots later. No one was close to the required. two-thirds majority the convention was at a stalemate on the thirty fourth ballot. The friends of peers made their move and threw his name into the ring. There darkhorse strategy worked. I Virginia defected. Then New Hampshire and Maine by the forty ninth valid. Pierce had two hundred two votes. The rest of the candidates had a combined total of five five. Jane was despondent at her husband's victory during the Convention Pearson. His wife had traveled to Boston on our leisurely carriage ride. A horseback rider brought Pierce Word From Baltimore. He had won the nomination. Upon hearing the news the story goes. Jane fainted on the spot. Pierce pledged himself to Appro compromise platform. And when the party's frontrunners Buchanan cast Douglas and Marcy threw their support behind pierce the rest of the party followed suit. Northern Northern and southern Democrats alike rallied around Pearce with a brand new campaign slogan we put you in eighteen forty four we shall pierce you in eighteen fifty. Two as the Democrats came together. The whigs were on the verge of falling apart. The Whig National Convention was also held in Baltimore on June sixteenth. The weather was hot. Humid Humid and dreary reaching into the nineties. Thousands of spectators flooded into the hall to watch the drama unfold. A large banner hung above the stage. Liberty and union and now and forever one and inseparable another banner. Read the Union. The whigs for the sake of the Union and for a while union seemed possible. Two days into into the Convention feel more scored a massive victory when the whigs vindicated his administration and adopted a pro compromise platform but the first ballot revealed a divided party fillmore and Scott had just over one hundred thirty votes. Each webster had twenty-nine feel more cared about the compromise. Not The nomination. He had sent a delegate. I'll get named George Babcock to Baltimore with instructions. The letter and Babcock's pocket read present to the presiding officer of the convention. Whenever you deem it proper the enclosed letter her withdrawing my name in the letter Phil Morass Babcock not to suffer his name to be dragged into a contest for a nomination which I've never sought but babcock adcock ignored? Fill Moore's instructions and feel Moore's name remained on the ballot till the bitter end during the convention. Daniel Webster was in despair his decades a public service. It only garnered him a handful of votes. His pride was wounded but webster also knew that if he withdrew his delegates would decide the winner days as into the convention he accepted the inevitability of defeat and wrote to President Fillmore. I have sent a communication to Baltimore this morning to have an an put to the pending controversy. I think it most probable you will be nominated before one o'clock fillmore replied. I'd intimated to my friends strong desire to have my name withdrawn. Your communication indication may be too late. Fillmore was right webster was wrong. His supporters did not back the president. They backed General Winfield Scott on the fifty third ballot. Scotch secured the whig nomination with Secretary of the Navy. William Graham has his running mate when webster heard the news. His reply was how would this look to history but most in the present were asking how it will look to the word party unlike the Democrats after their convention the whigs fractured into pieces. Uses five separate. Third parties ran candidates of their own. Most stealing chunks of the whig vote in August. The Anti Compromise Free Soil Party nominated New Hampshire. After Senator John Parker Hale also in August. The Union Party nominated Daniel Webster. Webster received a second nation to from the so-called know nothing party an anti immigrant anti Catholic nativist faction on August twenty fifth the Southern Rights Party a radical pro slavery faction held a convention in Montgomery Alabama and nominated Georgia Senator George Troup and in September of eighteen. Fifty to the Liberty Party largely made up of abolitionists held a convention engine in Syracuse Nominated Reform William Goodell of New York in the election of eighteen. Fifty to the Whig Democrat platforms were largely indistinguishable. Both were pro compromise and both offered a similar economic agenda in the end it came down to a question of party unity. The Democrats had the wigs. Did Not in eighteen fifty two pierce delivered. Scott the most crushing electoral defeat of any whig nominee in American history. Scott carried only four states in a meager twenty seven electoral votes save for the Liberty Parties. John Parker Hale who earned a tiny fraction of the popular vote. None of the third party candidates security security single electoral vote though pierce handedly won the election with two hundred fifty four electoral votes.

So I actually can visualize the entire fan. If I remember properly we had to turn off the video after a couple of seconds because of the internet is that correct? Yeah. I was in the.

I can't believe you remember that. That's awesome. Will it's it is good that you have a photographic video graphic memory because we're gonna go straight into this.

"May apply. The Warren Pierce show, seven sixty WJR. Got to talk about all that with the managing shareholder of the theft gross organization over there in Bingham farms were they specialize in all sorts of things. Bankruptcy real estate health law, you taxes corporate transactions debt management. You name it Ken gross in your help helping all sorts of folks out with the questions let me quickly, and I've got so many things to talk to you about. But I just saw a story like yesterday that suggesting that in your of involved with tax to that folks are going to be possibly in first prize when they file their returns from last year, they're not going to get as much back as they may very well have thought they would in fact, they may all money. Have you seen that story popping up? I was just reading it this morning as well. I think it's because the adjusted the withholding tax under the new Bill so with less money is being withheld. So on that basis the refunds compared to last year would be less, and yeah, there is that does create the possibility that you could end up all in depending on whether the withholding was to oh in relationship to the change in bracket and all the other issues that go on with the new returning. No one's itemizing anymore. So if you're a big itemize or you were generating a deduction there, and it's going to have to you're gonna have to wait and see. Yeah. There's so many changes that you. I'm sure are all working on over there. Also, I said to myself this morning, maybe I should get my return prepared early into shock because I'm wondering where I'm gonna it's very difficult to know where you're going to stand this year on the tax return until you actually see it not maybe in for a little shocker there. The other question when we. Talk about retirement could our listeners could we retire with maybe and we've talked about how much money should you have when you go into retirement could you retire? Do you think with an income equivalent of about eighty percent of your final salary if you can get to that kind of a situation? I think that's a good one. I love that. But the issue isn't the issue at depends on what is your overhead. Once you retire. If your overhead is going to be exactly the same as it was before you retired. Then if you're eighty percent the question is how long will that is eighty percent without reducing any principal or taking it down very slowly. Then you're okay. But really you need to be in a position where at the point that you retire. You've trimmed your expenses far below. They were not the day before he retired. But. Far below that. They were ten years ago. You've gotta have no mortgage payment, you shouldn't have any car payments, or maybe one car payment, not to you shouldn't have any credit card debt, you should your payments should be down to you know, if you.

"The Warren Pierce show, seven sixty WJR. That time of year again. They were doing that last night. John as they let the sixty foot Norway spruce fir campus Martius there were thousands down there, including our next guest. Yeah. Define who is on a direct phone line now, and you were there Tanya explained to our listeners who were either maybe watching on channel seven last night because they did the tree lighting live the official Christmas tree of Detroit from seven to eight or for the I don't know ten fifteen twenty who knows maybe fifty thousand people who are down there. Explain why you were down there looking at this particular tree Tanya. Good morning. Yes. Actually, the that was our tree we donated our tree to the city of Detroit. And so they invited us to come down and experiencing lighting in person. How did you decide to donate your very own Norway spruce from your front yard to campus Martius in the tree lighting? No, it really was a godsend. We have this beautiful tree that we had to cut down. And it was just too close to the house. But we knew it would be a beautiful tree. And we kept delaying it. And then finally like where we have to do something this year. And so in February I Google campus Martius Christmas tree, and I got a hold of her, and she was the right person, and they came out multiple times. So look at the tree. And then in August. We got notified that it was going to be the tree downtown. And it's been such a great experience. Because I don't know if you're aware of this is the first local tree Detroit has had for multiple years. They've been in getting in from New York, and then the last two or three years they went up to Cadillacs. And so I think Detroit is trying to keep it local. And you know, so they selected our tree. And we have just been totally amazed with the whole entire process. How long do you figure it drew next to your house there in Plymouth Michigan? Before they cut it down. Well, actually, our neighbors are still in contact and friends with the regional builder, and he planted that tree thirty years ago. And so when he found out about this he was so excited because he felt like he had a vested interest in it because he planted that tree, and he actually was hoping to come through lighting last night. But he wasn't able to make it over the years that you view in your husband Curtis. Tanya have lived there in the house in Plymouth. Did you ever attempt to take decorated? I'm not talking about what folks saw last night at campus Martius and will now see through the rest of the Christmas holiday season. But did you ever throw lights on it? No, we get the question asked a lot we decorate someone a little or trees. But that one is just so massive, we never even attempted. You have any idea when they came down and cut it. And then took it downtown give any idea how much it weighed. No. I don't ask that. That's a really good question. I do know the whole process they had a special crane there in a flatbed when they took it out of the home. But I don't know how much weight, and do, you know, how many ornaments how many lights they put on your former Norway spruce there in Plymouth last night before they threw the switch it about a quarter date. You know, they did say that. And I'm not positive. I think they said seventeen thousand but it was it was a lot of commotion going on last night. A lot of excitement. So I'm not sure if I have that number correct? You're you're close without going over the actual number of ornaments, which was nineteen thousand nine hundred thousand lights they've got on that tree. Will you go back down periodically through the rest of the season now to visit the and you didn't give a name to your beloved tree there in Plymouth. Did you you can call it a Harry or Sam or? No, we did it. But there's a lady that we bet when they brought the tree down initially when they first brought it down to campus Martius and she's been attending the services for fifteen years. She's known as a Christmas tree lady. I'm not sure if he ever met her, but she decorates herself. And she's in light. She names the trees every year and she named tree Laurie. Well, that's very good. All right. Well, thanks for getting up with us this morning. Appreciate it. And congratulations job well done. I tree from Michigan. That was donated for the official Detroit tree and you'll probably have a tree in your place to decorate before now and Christmas. We'll work on that. We'll celebrate thanksgiving. I like we love the Christmas season. So we will be celebrating that soon at our house as well. All right. Tonya, thanks a lot. Thank your husband to for donating treat for downtown. All right Mary Christmas. So you you too and speaking of Christmas trees..
