"For its diverse cast for more. We're joined by npr. Tv critic. Eric diggins eric page played. Simon bassett the duke of hastings. The most eligible bachelor in england. Let's listen to a little bit more of them in this role. His mother every corner this time. Viewing suzy nobis a very large mother. Simply want the same issue. I rather for every last one of them's choke erebus. Do you declare wife. Hastings truly know planning and taking place in society. You gotta juke title. As far as i'm concerned and hastings you stop calling. My father's name never mind playing this reluctant aristocrat was a career breakout for page and yet he won't be back for another season. Eric why cheerio you know it. I hear those british accents and it just makes me one on the way. They can't resist so according to reports that we've seen in the trade press brigitta on the series is sort of hewing to the story line of bridgeton. The novels that it was based on this character was really only a factor the first novel which they told in the first season and so the actor said that when he was approached to do the role they had told him it would be for one season. The show's producers went back to the actor and asked him if he'd be willing to make a guest appearance and they offered him a bit of a pay bump and he turned it down. I'm sure he has a lot of attractive offers in front of him. He was a breakout star from that season. And what we're seeing on social media. I mean there's fans who are heartbroken and saying they won't wash the show. He's not in it so obviously he made an impression and he's making the most of it but People in the tv industry are scratching their heads. Because you don't mess with the breakout hit and to have a key character that so many people enjoyed depart. The show is just You know it's going to be a challenge for them. It's going to be a huge challenge for them. Well i think part of fans disappointment as they liked Gauge on page on screen of course but they also i think liked the way he spoke out about the importance of diverse representation in costume dramas like richardson. In fact here he is doing. Just that in an interview with cbs. We have a very long and saturation. Excluding people from stories excluding people from history. Literally painting people outs all historical pictures and documents and the varieties. We can do to stop painting people back in. I think we're going to have a great big fund. Cinderella fantasy for christmas that the more people who can play that invited to participate in that and see themselves as glamorous and worthy of love. And the better. So that's what he said on. Cbs eric but as you mentioned earlier i mean season. Two is scheduled to follow the books. On which the series is based it's going to focus on a different member of the white bridgeton family of which sort of pushes simon bassett out of the picture. I mean is the series just limited by its source material here or does it signal deeper problem if they actually can't hold onto their breakout star despite reportedly offering them fifty thousand dollars an episode to be a guest store. Yeah i know fifty thousand dollars. An episode sounds like a lot of money. But in hollywood like they backed up the money to hold onto this guy and so now we see we're in a situation where the characters of color are going to come and go around this white family that is at the center of the show and i think if they had managed to keep that character. Simon bassett in the mix. It would have lessened that affect a little more but now their challenge is to try and figure out how to create another character. that's justice compelling and make that person a person of color. You know stuff like that is kind of like like in a bottle and expecting to be able to replicate. That is kind of a tall order. I think well the search for whoever might be next. Eric makes me think about something. That the late chadwick boseman used to talk about sometimes talked about how there seemed to be only room for a small number of black male leads in hollywood at any given time and bozeman of course now is being awarded several posthumous recognitions for his work on screen. And while we're on page has a promising film career ahead. He he did. Say just this week eric that he was hurt to learn that race was reportedly factor when he was passed over for the role of superman's grandfather in the tv series krypton. So what does all this tell you about the state of Affairs for black male. Leads in hollywood. Why doing what it tells me is that there is a push poll between people who are safeguarding. The traditional way of casting shows and people who wanna take chances but if you look at the race or if you look at the hollywood awards season race this year you see a much wider range of leading men than i think we have ever seen but what it does is it. Just reveals how limited our vision has been in the past and how much more that has to expand so the good news for bridgeton is that they now have a chance to develop another magnetic leading character of color to come to that show and do.

"Trying to be heads down on a patient that you need to render aid to on. It's very difficult to focus on the patient while there's other things around you if you don't feel safe around you if you don't have enough resources It's very difficult to focus the the one thing to be all distract absolutely and so does it make it more difficult to assess it. Does it make it more likely that you may miss signs that is experiencing something. Yes and so. The distraction can actually harm the potential care of the patient. The defense also tried to show that drugs found in floyd's blood contributed to his death but experts testified they found no evidence of an overdose. Pulmonologist martin tobin said sentinel did not affect floyd's breathing in fact it was a lack of oxygen. That killed him so that was roughly seventeen second clip right is that number the respiratory rate to twenty two significant to this case. It's extremely significant. Why is that because one of the things in this case is the question of sentinel and if fendt is having an effect and is causing depression of the spur centers the centers that control breathing. That's going to result in a decrease in the receiver free rate. And it's shown that with you. Expect to forty percent reduction in the risk free rates so with fenton oh his respiratory rate should be down around ten instead that it's right in the middle of normal at twenty two doctor tobin said it was chauvin who played a key role in floyd's death. He described how much weight the officer pressed on. Floyd's neck so doctor toland. What do we see here in exhibit non forty-three receiving seeing is that how of his body weight plus his gear weight is coming down. That's nine hundred one point. Five pounds is coming down directly on mr floyd's neck always and the reason we're seeing that is because the the the tow is off the ground and there's nobody weight sitting back he's not hunkering back on his heels so everything is directed down on his knee. The in this place he's shin and he's toe and he's boot is playing no contribution. The prosecution brought another medical witness to the stand. Dr bill smock is a surgeon.

"Night tour groups on georgia beach lockout. They come across a loggerhead. Sea turtle amassed as attaching. Oh this was a couple of summers ago. The tiny turtles scramble up out of the nest and churn their flippers in a rush to the ocean. Are there so when a nest hatches. it's called boil. There's so many turtles it ends up being impossible to keep count because they bubble up from the sand so cool georgia takes pride in protecting and tracking the turtles that come here to lay their eggs but now wildlife officials say the. Us army corps of engineers threatens the same turtles. The state has worked to save the core plans to change. Its schedule for dredging shipping channels. The dredging keeps them deep enough for ships to get to and from the ports here but the equipment can hurt and kill wildlife biologist. Mark dodd with the georgia department of natural resources says the dredges are like under water. Vacuum cleaners the pumps just suck material off the bottom sand and mud and they can pick up sea turtles from the ocean floor to dot says after getting sucked in the animals. Hit a blade like a propeller get chopped up and Don't thrive so the past few decades the us army corps of engineers has kept. Its dredging here to the winter months to minimize killing sea turtles. But last summer the core permission from the trump administration to dredge in the southeast any time of year and it wants to start dredging off the georgia coast in may which is when the adult females. Start coming here to lay their eggs. Killing nesting females is especially devastating to conservation efforts. Catherine ridley is with the georgia advocacy group. One hundred miles. We're sending these turtles through wood chipper but the core says conservation is actually the reason for the may dredging or really not trying to some evil thing. Here nicole boone. With the agency says the change in schedule is to take into account other protected species across the region from north carolina down to puerto rico for instance and north atlantic right whales which are on the georgia coast in the winter when the dredging has been happening. None of turtles harms. This goal is to try to figure out how to do everything better for older easy. Advocates are skeptical. They say in thirty years of winter. Dredging there's no proof that it's hurt right. Whales but in two thousand nine and experiment with summer dredging was stopped after it killed six turtles in two weeks.

When Critters Bleed ... On Purpose!

"Okay now so why did you get interested in this whole reflex bleeding thing well. I just saw this report by that guy. Sebastian hofer and i called him up and he told me that not too long ago he got a job at an island ecosystem research institute in the and so i was looking into what's around. What kind of animals are just scanning through the literature just to see what of questions could answer any read about. These local snakes called thunder snakes. That sounds very dramatic. Thunder thunder thunder snakes. Really it's just that they come out when it rains a lot. And i remember reading this from nineteen fifty five describing this behavior this auto hemorrhaging behavior in these snakes. And i just thought to myself. That's insane so there weren't any photos or any kind of detailed description. It just said. The snakes bled from their heads when handled so he did what most good scientists would do. I assume he went out on an expedition to fight snakes. Absolutely you know it. He absolutely did. He had a couple of colleagues went out looking under rocks flipped a ton of rocks until they finally found one and the snake made some defensive behaviors kinda rolled into this tight ball and it started defecating. And asking you know emitting this pretty bad smelling liquid and then sebastian applied a little pressure to its nose like just gently pinched. Its nose to see if they could trigger any bleeding from handling all right. Now you set me this video. And i'm watching a. It's like a little nose pinch. Maybe you know you pinch at like good. And but then boom the snakes is fill up with blood like immediately there are just too big drops of blood where the is used to be and then suddenly the is kind of clear up and then a drop of blood comes out of its mouth yes. Sebastian told me it was wild. Just because i've never seen anything like that. And just the fact of how quickly that i or the is fully flood with blood and then the blood exudes from the mouth and then the ice fully clear up again in just a couple of seconds. I was stunned. I was like this is mad. I mean that is pretty dramatic and you said other critters. Do this to right right some other snakes. You know the one that's been studied. The most is the horned lizard. That's a lizard that lives in the us in the southern us and what it does is pretty nutso. It shoots blood out of its is and the blood can fly several feet several feet. Yeah it doesn't happen that often but when it does it's so dramatic that it really gets people's attention. Indigenous people have known about these lizards for a long time. European scientists wrote about them centuries ago and for forty years. These lizards have been studied by wage. Sherbrooke director emeritus of the southwestern research station of the american museum of natural history in arizona and he told me at the beginning. He was just wondering if this is supposed to be a defensive response. Why would blood be a turnoff. For what is after all a bloodthirsty predator. Good question when you try to say well. Maybe a predator wouldn't like it depends on is going to eat these things you know. That doesn't make sense so That's that's where i started. So he began watching the lizards in doing experiments. And what he found that. The horned lizard wouldn't always squirt blood from its eyes when threatened by an animal. And what i found was with roadrunners with grasshopper mice with Leopard lizards with rattlesnakes with other snakes. They never squirt blood. They don't do it then so when do they do it. Do they squirt blood. He told me it's when the lizard is about to be eaten by something like a coyote. Or a bob cat and the reason is the blood has a distasteful quality to mammalian predators and it has to be. It has to arrive in the mouth. Okay so these lizards are not really trying to like hit. A predator from several feet away by sending streams of blood. Flying out of there is apparently not disappointing. It's more like a coyotes mouth clamps down on the lizard the lizard squirts out foul tasting blood. Way told me that when he goes out and handles horned lizards only a couple times. Out of one hundred. Will it actually squirt blood from its. Is you know he said. Humans aren't typical predator. So he thinks lizard is just kind of confused. It doesn't really know what to do and he told me he's actually tasted the blood no for a long time. I thought it basically tastes like my blood. I wish i was surprised that this took a turn to a scientist tasting blood. But i'm not look. This is science magazine science. So then you know after a while. Though he started thinking actually there is this kind of you know aftertaste. Kind of acid aftertaste that lasted for maybe twenty minutes. Or so he said it was really minor. But if he squirts the blood into the mouth of a coyote or a bobcat they have a really strong reaction disgusting immediately. They begin to celebrate quite a bit. They shake their head to all kinds of things like that to to they. They have different taste. Buds than i do okay. Okay so all of this kind of suggests that for these horned lizards. This is really a strategic specific defense that it's not just a random stress response. I mean you could imagine that if an animal gets like it's blood pressure goes up lead might just shoot out of a leaky capillary. Somehow i guess but this seems to be pretty specific defense move aimed at particular predators right and like i mentioned before. The horned lizards auto hemorrhage has more studied than any other creatures. Okay salikh what beyond reptiles you said. Some insects do this to ladybugs. Yeah actually quite a lot of insects do this. And if you're poking at a lady bug and some liquid comes out it might just seem to you like it was urine or feces or something you know in ladybugs it comes out of the legs underneath so it's hard to see where it's coming out. It's yellow you know so unless you know what it is. You'd have no reason to think. This thing is just bled on me. You know spontaneously was happened. And now i'm looking back and i'm like oh that was blood cool so i talked to michael nop. He studies ladybugs at the czech university of life sciences and he told me that reflex bleeding is a highly effective way for ladybugs to deter predators because their blood is full of substances that smell and probably taste awful two birds or small mammals and he told me that actually if a lady but gets attacked by ants the coagulating blood can act like a kind of glue that glues aunts mouth parts together during the attack. I mean that's pretty amazing now. But here's the thing. I don't understand about this doesn't a lady bug need. It's blood i mean like it seems like critters would be at a disadvantage of some sort if they went around anytime they got threatened. So like how much blood are we talking about. So for ladybugs. He told me it can be a lot like up to fifteen or twenty percent of all. Its blood wild. Why i mean for you that would be like if you lost a liter of blood like a couple pint blood so it is significant. And that's why he's been looking into the consequences of this. I mean you know he said bleeding could save a lady life but there are also some costs and we re better searching for physiological costs in our research he just published one set of experiments he and his colleagues forced young lady bugs to reflex bleed repeatedly like every day and then they studied them and what they saw is that the bugs immune system seemed a little weekend but the number of eggs they produced was the same their reproductive success was almost unaffected. You know maybe just some slight delays in the age at first reproduction but nothing major. So what i'm taking from this. Is that these insects kind of know what they're doing like evolutionary speaking. I mean do they filter the blood in any way to try to preserve the good stuff and week only just like the nasty compounds in it. His is actually looked at this and he told me that the blood that spontaneously comes out of ladybugs is exactly the same as the blood inside. And when i asked him you know exactly like what is going on. You're like is there an opening in the leg. He said no. Like somehow the insect is able to kind of injure itself to somehow create an opening in its skin or cuticle. But it's not like all the mechanical details of reflects bleeding have been well studied. It's still pretty obscure all right now. Well thank you for this mini tour of the world of auto hemorrhage

What you need to know about Tesla's 'battery day'

What you need to know about Tesla's 'battery day'

"Over the last few months there has been information leaking out about Tesla establishing a new battery production line near the Fremont factory, and it is aptly code-named roadrunner not only does that hint speed, but there might also be. A reference there to roadrunner and Wylie coyote the looney tunes characters engaged in a perpetual game of Jason, in which Miley Coyote could never catch the roadrunner. Maybe legacy auto is the Wiley Coyote to Tesla's roadrunner. So one of the expectations for Battery Day is that Tesla unveils this roadrunner production line to demonstrate the potential throughput that can be accomplished with all. These advancements I believe Ilan made reference to this today as well as tussles other progress in manufacturing outside of batteries. When he tweeted quote speed running Victorio and real life dot dot dot, and quote if you're unfamiliar Factoria is a video game described themselves. By saying quote Factoria was a game in which you build and maintain factories you'll be mining resources researching. Technologies building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies and quote that you're sounds a lot like. TUSLA. So a lot of these are related but I believe manufacturing and energy density at the pack level to be the two most important things for battery day. But it doesn't just end there. There are few other topics that may be discussed at Battery Day the first. which has been heavily speculated on is the possibility of Tesla introducing a million mile battery. So first things first on that that means a million mile life cycle or another way to say, that would be the ability for the battery to recharge. Let's say three or four thousand times without having significant capacity degradation because of already done a full ten fifteen minute episode. On the Million Mile Battery I'M NOT GONNA go into as much detail on that here a link that episode but the Short version is that they're already batteries capable of producing that many cycles. It's just a matter as it always is with batteries of the trade offs are willing to make. For example, does that increase the life cycle lower energy density or? Increased cost, and if so maybe it's not worth the tradeoff in fact, Tesla already has batteries that are capable of doing a million miles. They just don't use them in their vehicles because of those trade offs rather they use them in their energy storage products. So we'll see what Tesla has to say about a million mile battery they have talked about wanting. To, get there with the whole powertrain and the past, which really makes a lot of sense when you bring in a Tommy because if a scenario exists where there is a full self-driving row taxi that vehicles going to be traveling a lot more than ten thousand or fifteen, thousand miles per year if the utilization is five times higher or ten times higher. Then to have a useful life of ten years twenty years, you're going to need a million mile powertrain including that million mile battery. It also makes a lot of sense for other utility vehicles such as the upcoming Tesla semi the other wildcard that could potentially add life cycles to the battery for a vehicle would be vehicle to grid technology. Again, we've talked about. Tesla hasn't been super bullish on that technology in the past. So it's relatively lower on my expectations list there certainly value to that feature, but there's also complexity in extracting that value. So we'll wait and see what Tesla has to say on life cycle and any additional features that could drive utilization of those battery packs higher next on the watch list is. Charging capability there's a lot of potential here. We've already seen Tesla over the years increase the supercharging rate from ninety kilowatts to one hundred, twenty kilowatts, two, hundred, and fifty all the way up to two hundred and fifty kilowatts at peak now, and at the cyber truck unveiling last November onscreen they shut a graphic that showed the charging capability of the cyber. At. Two hundred and fifty kilowatts plus you elon musk at that unveiling said quote it will be capable of more than two hundred and fifty kilowatts will reveal the actual number later and quote. So maybe battery day ends up being that later we know that just last week lucid, motors announced that the lucid air will have three hundred and fifty kilowatt capable charging Tesla's kinda competitive. So I'm not sure they're gonNA, sit around for too long being outmatched on that charging rate. If we can get a bit speculative for a moment, one of our listeners, Florian halen helped me out with this it appears that the V. Three superchargers should be capable. Of quite a bit more output than the hundred and fifty kilowatt. Max. That does vehicles can charge at today to get a full understanding of this, we have to start with the version two superchargers. If we look at the label on those chargers, we can see the voltage listed at four hundred and ten volts. They amperage listed at two hundred and seventy amps to get the power capacity. We just multiply the voltage by the amperage. So in this case that comes out to about one hundred and eleven kilowatts but what happens in reality is that vehicles on version two charges, one hundred and fifty kilowatts all the time. So the amperage here is. Actually understated the same thing appears to be happening with the V. Three superchargers as well on the label for those, we can see that the voltage is thousand and the amperage is four, hundred and twenty-five. So multiplying those together yet Max power capacity of four hundred and twenty five kilowatts. So that's already higher than the two hundred and fifty kilowatts. The vehicles can accept today leaving some room for upside and charging rate but back to the amperage, it appears that the amperage capacity is understated on the be three charges as well. We have a screen shot here of a model three charging at that Max two hundred and fifty kilowatt rate, but with. The voltage only at three hundred, sixty eight. So if we divide those two hundred and fifty thousand watts, two hundred and fifty kilowatts by three hundred, sixty eight that gives us six, hundred eighty amps, which is well above the four hundred twenty, five amps on the label right now, a model threes battery is limited to four hundred and four volts. So at six hundred and eighty amps that would mean a Max charging rate of two, hundred, seventy, five kilowatts instead of the two, hundred fifty, that is listed, but it's probably limited at two hundred and fifty kilowatts to avoid overheating if we consider a new battery though maybe some of those constraints can. Be removed and the V. Three superchargers seems capable of delivering quite a bit more power than that two hundred, fifty kilowatts. If we use the six hundred eighty amps here that we have already seen register out of a supercharged V three location and we multiply that by the maximum a thousand volts we could be looking at a power output of six hundred eighty kilowatts from three charter and potentially even higher based on whatever that true actual limit on ams it's. So none of this means that Tesla's going to suddenly unveil a battery that's capable of charging at seven hundred kilowatts just that the V. Three chargers do seem to be putting in. Place. The infrastructure for higher charging to come over time with a new cell likely being introduced. Maybe we will hear more about that at battery debt last couple of aspects that I've heard discussed the first mining Tesla has alluded to maybe getting into mining someday if they needed to that's not something that I expect here from Battery Day as should be cleared by this point in time I think they've got enough to go through without going down that figurative rabbit hole but I do expect. Yulon mosque to again plead with suppliers to ramp up supply especially for nickel next is a point on Tesla suppliers we know that tussle works with Panasonic LG. L. To source batteries from them. So the question has arisen of how those partnerships are going to work and evolve if Tesla is designing and manufacturing their own cell and I think this is answered by what we spoke to earlier with product differentiation Tesla is going to need all the batteries they can get their hands on it's going to take time to ramp up their own battery production. So not only can they not just convert all their products over to their own cells instantly even if they were to do that, they still probably need even more batteries so they're going to continue to partner with these other suppliers though suppliers give them viable. Products, which can help Tesla Grow capture revenue capture prophet regardless of their own endeavors and battery cells and production as far as tesla actually supplying these cells to others I definitely don't expect that not for a long long time if at all, and that's really for the same reason, Tesla is gonNA need these cells themselves supplying them to another oem just adds again that extra layer of cost because both sides need their margin that creates a more expensive and a product for the consumer, which is contradictory to tussles goal of accelerating the advent of sustainable energy. So as long as Tesla is battery constrained, which I expect to be for a long time. See them supplying their batteries to anybody else. All right. So after all of this, we finally come to the product. The last thing to maybe expect out of Battery Day could be the introduction of the plaid model s and Model X. potentially being the first products to utilize these new battery cells as Tesla works to ramp up that initial production it's been yearly quiet on the plaid. Powertrain Front for a while now, but the timing is about right and maybe we will finally again here's something about the new roadster.

"Radio Muller" Is The Key To Bayern Munich's Success

"Surfer Thomas Miller has been at the heart of this buyer Munich team and really the heart of the club for more than a decade now I could you just describe what he's like as a person? Is Very funny or anything all I have time I have time and then me the road runner they have to by roadrunner cancer had the steal ball doesn't always come across in English, because it's very difficult for humans to translate well but he is very funny in minutes I ever show with A. TV team, I say completed. No Fun. Is. Very intelligent straightforward I think he has good sense of what it is. That makes a team successful. Thank you for the mets trophy. But I think we have Maybe twelve or fifteen players. That deserves the trophy as well. We worked so hard. We work with and I think on top of that. He personifies what it means to be a bavarian. You know buying is the German word for that area just very wealthy very beautiful. It is the stereotypical. Germany for most foreigners who we think of deer think of people lederhosen people sometimes look down on these guys lederhosen their beer as being slightly simpleton maybe a little bit argument and and Brash Ovens. But for for Bavarians, it is a sense of pride after the training session the stars took part in the traditional power Lana Lederhosen photo shoot. And when you combine that with buying as a football institution who play on that heightened sense of Bavarian, he think represents those contradictions but also the the bland and the combination of these things in a way that no other bind player does at the moment. And in terms of soccer. I have to say Thomas. Miller is one of the strangest players I've ever seen. Can you explain what makes him so unusual he is strange because he holds a really important position for one of the best teams in the world without being necessary obviously a gifted player. Because of his spindly legs and this upright running frame and this, he looks like a middle distance runner than a footballer I try not to be that muscular than my teammates because Less weight on my bones, his less injury, and that's my secret. It just don't see the the beauty elegance to so even the power the most played at this level brain and there's always something ungainly love it awkward about the way he and controls the ball he likes to Shin The ball router. Hindi cleanly speak about jumped all the time. Is Elite. I think once said that he's the best worst player in the world. I once thought that you know he was playing with a white t-shirt underneath his shirt poking out as some kind of wife beater show underneath and maybe I was imagine it almost got the sense that he was doing it on purpose to just give the impression that this is just this random guys just walked onto the pitch and he can't possibly be any good and opponents look thinking. Who is this guy and then twenty minutes later he's got two goals against them. So I think he's perfected that sleight of hand and is quite happy that people still think he's somehow know a good player and I think it takes you quite a bit of time and and different viewpoint to understand what it is yet she brings to the team and I tried to explain that my my biggest quality is maybe. The game without ball because in this time we had his game is all based on on movement on ideas on the interpretation of space as he wants himself, put it. So eloquently than my qualities to do to get in the right space to the right time. Maybe. Space Interpreter.

"Did we talk about your road runner on the first episode, we did together of the show I. Don't want why don't you tell us the story? Yes. Aside from chargers and burnt up Khuda. Johnny and a whole host of other MO- pars. Johnny has also had a really awesome dude. You're roadrunners bad, ass. Tell us about your road. I remember seeing the pictures of it for the first time and I'm like. Hey, you have too many cool cars that I want. So. Tell us about that. Awesome roadrunner. This is the ratty one right the blue. Absolutely that okay. Man That card if I could find that exact car right now, I'd be a very happy man but. Tell us tell us the whole story about the road. All right. So Up in the high desert, which is I think it's like Apple Valley area out here. Not You know not that you would know where this is but anyway, it's it's it's a little bit of a stretch to get there from where I lived but I think it was in the recycler craigslist or something? I'm not even sure craigslist was around back then but I found this seventy roadrunner right And it was pretty sketchy description and stuff and I call the guy and he's like ads. Pretty. Roach Dow. But it does run. It's a three car I'm like all right has tiktok tack in it unlike. Allen go check this thing out so I was just dating my wife back. Then you know so I I I cook stir into going for a drive. You know a road trip up to go check out this car. And get there and it's like this. Lavender primer color in somebody rattled canned stripe on the hood. Had the Bulge Hood. And but Iran. And I was like, Oh, by had, we'll flares in the back which I didn't And I think I think I paid. I want to say was like Fifteen hundred bucks to two thousand dollars somewhere in there. Drug at home. And then I didn't like the color. So I black primaried the whole thing and then I drove it around a little bit but I didn't have it long and then I was starting to chip out the crap and you know the flares and the wheel wells the hated it, and then it's like, oh. God. Why did I opened this up just nasty like they just they just got in there with like sheet metal cutters and just like peeled the medal up and then just mud it you know. Was Nasty and then the right rear corner that car. It had been hit and then so somebody cut a clip off of another car I'm thinking a four door. And like grafted it into the car, they did a terrible job of doing it. So I I was just like this way too much for me. I'm I'm not gonNA take on the project like this so I think it was probably the recycler. Anyway this guy from same area Apple Valley calls me up. He's a tow truck driver and he's like a he was yeah a I I know that car seen that car up here stopped trying to buy that car that guy wouldn't sell it for years and years, and he's like, how did you get a hold of it and I'm like it was in the recycler He's I can't believe I. missed it. You know. So anyways, he goes. Well, he didn't have eating the money, but he's like, would you be interested in a trade and I'm like I don't know like what do you got? You know he's listing off the one hundreds and you know some bodies like Darts and Whatever Who wants a dart when he can get chargers all the time for not? Exactly. Exactly. So unlike No not interested. He goes well, I got a I got a sixty nine road runner and I go. He goes with doesn't have drive train in it, but you know it's five blue and. I go. Sounds interesting. I'd be interested in that and he goes I. Go dude this car is rough. The seventy is rough 'cause. I've really like seventy seventies on my favorite. Described everything wrong with the car. I think it had three fifty five's in it but anyway, he's like well, can you come up and can I check out the car because I was really Skeptical that he would be interested in trading for it. Right so I, I, drive a met him. I went like three quarters of the way up there, and then he met me because he was working he was actually he showed up in a tow truck. We met like right off the freeway. You know he's checking out the car and he's like I want I'm interested and I'm like all right cool and he goes well. Come back up on the weekend and all I had was like a really sketchy picture. Of the Blue Road runner, the sixty nine.

"This week's project car of the week is the nineteen. Sixty-nine Plymouth Road Runner. That was posted on the mope one hundred facebook page on. March twenty fifth at three PM. Let's break down the ad but first let me say that this is another example of a seller who did a piss poor job of creating the ad and being detailed and I'm GonNa read it exactly how it's written starting with the title and then getting into the description so let's check it out. Nineteen sixty nine road runner number matching four-speed thirteen thousand nine hundred dollars nineteen. Sixty-nine number matching four-speed Roadrunner Real K. Two car this car is very complete project call of interested thanks. Title Status is clean and this is one of those ads where. I'm like come on man. Can't you throw a little bit more information? Let me know some of the cars history you know. How long have you had it? Why are you getting rid of it? Let me know a little bit more about the car. Dude I don't understand why that's so hard so the seller could have done a much better job describing the car maybe even decoding the fender tag and they also could have done a better job of taking pictures but a quick rundown of the car is that it needs both quarters and the vinyl top is peeling on both sides in the same spot with a quarter meets. The roof rocker panels on both sides need to be replaced. I can't see the trunk floor extensions. But the center of the trunk definitely needs to be replaced and they're still carpet on the inside so I cannot see the floorboards. But the pictures of the underside of the car. It looks pretty solid. It is missing the drive line and it does have looks like coil overs on the back. So that's a little bit weird. It's got an eight and three quarter rear end and it still has the looks like factory leaf springs in addition to the coil over. So that's a little curious. The underside looks pretty solid. So I'm really impressed with what I see underneath there The pictures of the door jams. The door jams don't appear to be rotted like you see on some of these cars that have been sitting for a while. Sometimes you see a lot of rotten. The door jams. But I don't see any of that. So this is pretty solid. The interior you know definitely needs work. New Door panels probably needs a headliner. Obviously new carpet Steering Wheel needs work. The shifter's laying on its side. It looks like in the picture so that needs to be hooked up but it's not too bad under hood you can see that it's missing the dip stick. It looks like and there's no oil Kapor breeders on the valve covers so it looks like the valve covers could potentially have been exposed to the elements which is not good It's got some bucket seats on the interior. I don't remember if I mentioned that It also appears to have a stripe on the back of the Trunk Lid. Much like the nineteen seventy roadrunners. That had that stripe except for it doesn't say road runner so I would definitely take that off. The rear bumper looks like it needs to be replaced right underneath the rear window. Molding it looks like it's rusting. They're a little bit at least that's what it looks like in the pictures. The car's not too bad other than needing quarters rockers. And trunk floor. It doesn't look bad. I'm curious about the rear suspension on it but overall it's pretty solid car you know. It's got the typical Mo problems you know the vinyl top problems and the quarter panel problems it has carpet on the interior. So I can't say whether or not it needs floors. But the underside of the car looks really clean compared to some of the exterior which needs some help but you know overall. It's not too bad of a car. It's a cool color. It's got the stripes on the hood you know it's thirteen thousand nine hundred. The picture of the fender tag it D- codes as a true runners are twenty three. It was born in Saint Louis Missouri and it is originally a four speed. Manual transmission has got the D twenty one code. It's also got the K. To code which is the paint code for Vitamin C. So that's cool. The Interior defender tag code. H Two ax actually says it's a black vinyl bench seat so that's interesting. It does have the veto any one options. So that's the performance hood treatment so I really like how. This car is set up vitamin C with a four speed. That's cool and the performance hood treatment. So this is a cool car but let's talk about the price. The cars thirteen thousand. Nine hundred numbers matching. It is a four speed car. It's your basic budget performance car for nineteen sixty nine which is exactly what it was meant to be. It's the right color St- the right. Look you know this thing. Brand new was pretty cool. This is the type of car where if I was alive during that time period and I saw this on the lot I would definitely be attracted to it. It's got the right color. It's definitely one of my favorite colors for a roadrunner. It's got to be twenty one performance hood treatment which always thought was cool. The car needs some work. Let's be honest. And if I bought this roadrunner first thing I would do is pull the valve covers. Nc What we're working with if the heads look pretty bad underneath there. I'd probably just yanked the engine and just tear it down. Since it is numbers matching. I do think it would be cool to take the engine out. Get A rebuilt but leave looking. Ratty you know what I mean and then drop it back in the car and get this thing running safely as I always say. Make sure it's safe to drive on the road before you get out there and get yourself or somebody else killed. Make sure your brakes work and that the suspension is good. You know you don't WanNa put anybody's life in danger especially your own. Believe it or not. There is such thing as a safe ratty muscle car and you can make this thing safe to drive and take it. This car has the potential to be a really fun rowdy muscle car so for thirteen thousand nine hundred. I'd like to see this thing around eight thousand but it is numbers matching. It is a four speed. It's the right color it's got the twenty one. I know I keep saying. Be Twenty one. I just think it's a really cool option. All right leave me alone so this car has a lot of good things going. Forward also has some questionable things. But if you wanted to cruise around in a cool rowdy mo par. This would be one that I consider pretty cool. Okay so thirteen nine. I'd like to see around eight thousand. I'd probably spend as much as ninety five. I don't know if I could justify figures for this car. You know I don't know if I could pull ten grand and by this thing but it is cool so I don't know maybe maybe I'd go as high as ten but you know that's almost four thousand office asking price. He has the selling point that it's numbers matching so I'd get underneath this thing. Make sure that transmission is matching to if all the numbers do match then maybe this would be a cool car to invest some money into you know I personally the only thing. This thing's missing is the Hammy Scott. The right color four-speed. This car is cool. I do think it deserves to be saved. Thirty-nine is at a high price. In my opinion. Maybe a little. If I had a disposable income would I pay the guy thirteen nine to take the car off his hands and save it? Absolutely but I'm Mo- par broke much like a lot of you so I would definitely try to get into the four figure range you know. I'm sure there's a lot of people say this car is only worth a thousand bucks. I definitely don't agree with that. I think it's definitely you know it's up there not not thousand in my opinion but I probably fork out ten thousand because I think the cars cool all right so that's project car of the week. A matching number sixty nine road runner four-speed car in Vitamin C. Very cool project. Somebody needs to save it. No Mo part left behind

Hi-Performance Heritage - The 1968 Dodge Scat Pack

"WELCOME TO TALKING. Mo- parts high-performance heritage man. The world is crazy right now folks. And if you're like me you're probably sick of hearing about the worldwide. Corona virus pandemic. Here's the good news. There will be absolutely no fear. Mongering Kovic nineteen talk here today. I hope you're staying healthy and safe and I'm here to give you a little escape from the chaos by talking Mo- parts with you together. We'll try to get our minds off of all this craziness. Twenty twenty and talk about what I believe to be the greatest year in mopey history nineteen sixty eight. The year that Dodge introduced the scat pack to an entire generation of horsepower junkies and change. The world of MOPE ARE FOREVER. There are just certain aspects of Mope our history that truly made a significant impact and the scat pack of nineteen. Sixty eight is one of those things but before we get started with project carved the week rev up the show with high performance parts get moving with listeners stories and shut down the show with high-performance. Heritage. There are two things you need to know number one Chris at talking Mo- Parts Dot Com. That's my email number two two zero nine. Twenty eight Mo par. That's my voicemail. Your voicemails will be shared on this show so please keep them appropriate. And so will anymo- par stories sent in for listener stories. I'll even share the emails that I think would make fun conversation on the show now that we took care that business. Let's get this show on the road. This week's project car of the week was the nineteen sixty nine. Plymouth road runner posted on the moped. Hunter Page Friday March twentieth at nine. Am here is the at Nineteen Sixty Nine Plymouth. Road runner numbers matching Bucket Seats Center Council. Hearst four-speed three eighty three and ninety six package original rims and build sheet runs dry scraper. Twenty five thousand. Five hundred or best offer not interested in low ballers condition is listed as good an title status listed as clean located in Webster. New York. Here's the thing folks. I like this car. It's numbers matching. It's got you know some desirable options the bucket seats center console. It's a four speed. It's got the end ninety six package and the guy's got to build sheet. He claims that it runs and drives. Great those are all good things and for twenty five thousand you know. I think he may be a little bit high on the price. The color of the car is kind of like a dark Emerald Green which? I don't believe it was a factory color looking in the engine bay. I see that it's kind of like a flat black. So that's one thing that annoys a lot of people for me. It doesn't bother me that much unless it's a fully restored car and they cheered out on the pain on the engine bay and they went black. I don't really like that. But you know a driver quality card no big deal. That can always be changed later on down the road. The car is cool. It's got the factory tack you know. Obviously bucket seats the console. Those are all great options and ninety six. Who who doesn't love the Air Grabber Hood? Come on and it's got that coyote duster air cleaner. The car looks to be in reasonable shape. If you look at the pictures of the guy posted the car does not look like a rob box. So that's a good thing. I think that this car has a really good bones and for twenty five thousand five hundred. I think there's a little bit of room to work there. I would like to see the price around eighteen thousand. So that's seventy five hundred off which is a fat chunk of change. Let's be honest so you know around. Twenty two is probably realistic. Twenty three twenty four. Maybe I don't know but for me. I think it's a great idea to spend low to mid twenties for running and driving car that you can enjoy so this is definitely a car that I think would be a good car to consider if you have that kind of money to throw around in a moped project because running and Driving Project. Cars are amazing. Why because you can enjoy while you're restoring them or modifying them. Whatever the case may be so. I think this is a great example of a you know reasonably priced project car and it is numbers matching which is desirable. And it's got to build sheets so that's cool so you know. It does have a picture of the fender tag here in the fender tag. Looks rotted so. Hopefully you know with the information on the build sheet and the original fender tag may get a re- pop vendor tag made and enjoy the cars restore it. He's got some pictures of the underside. The underside looks pretty clean. Doesn't look like there's any cancer. Even the trump pam looks really good. So I think this is a solid car to start with especially if you don't want to invest ninety thousand dollars on a restoration this has really good bones and it's always a good thing to start with a project that has good bones because then you're not doing a bunch of metalwork on it and you can focus on the things that really matter getting it running and driving tiptop condition. You know this guy says it runs drives great numbers matching. You WANNA preserve that. Engine so Mike for me. If I wasn't going for a Oh e quality restoration and I just wanted to drive the thing. I just drive the thing you know maybe pull the original engine out and put something else in. That's von and maybe just start with restoring the engine you know if what you're looking for is an OEM quality build start with the engine get that restored and then slowly work your way to the point where maybe it's time to tear apart the car and do the paint and body work. That's necessary to get it. In Primo condition. I liked that the seller shared the Haggerty Vehicle Valuation report that says Twenty eight thousand two hundred on in very tiny apprentices average value. He shared that as like a selling point that prices based on opinion desire ability. And all that stuff. He's asking twenty five five haggerty's average values twenty eight to I still think. Lower Twenties would be a great price for this car. But I also wouldn't have a problem paying you know around mid twenties for it just because it is numbers matching. That's Kinda hard to find in today's market for a reasonable price. And you know some people say you know twenty five thousand dollars. That's not a reasonable price. Okay that kind of money. Well then maybe you should look at something a little bit lesser than a sixty nine road runner decent quality roadrunners and any decent quality be body. That's somewhat desirable. 's GonNa Fetch a lot of money in this kind of condition and you know that's another thing what what is a lot of money you know is five thousand dollars a lot of money because I see a lot of cars that probably were ten grand that people are listening for fifteen to twenty and the potential buyers are lookie Loos. What have you will say? Oh that's a thousand dollar car. Well is it. Is it a thousand dollar car? Do you know what I mean. So pricing and the Mo par market right now is kind of iffy. You see a lot of different people that say vehicles are worth a tenth of what they're actually worth and then you see guys that will say you know. I pay that for car. That's clearly not worth the amount that is being asked. So there's a for every seat folks and you know. Some people got fatter wallets than others. My Wallet is Slim Pickens. It's gone on a series diet as of you know and I say Oh yeah. I would buy that if I had the money. I don't have the money so me saying that. It's kind of like saying yeah. I'd I'd buy a charger Daytona with a Hemi. If I had the money you know what I mean so take what I say with a grain of salt but I've seen you know hundreds maybe even thousands of these cars were sales since two thousand fifteen when I really started doing a deep dive into posting all these cars and finding them and seeing the values and you'll hear stories about guys that go and pull you know roadrunners out barnes. You'll see oh. They paid five thousand dollars for it and restored. The car is worth fifty thousand or whatever? I'm just throwing numbers out here. But that's uncommon. That doesn't happen every day. So you can't really base values of cars on prices from back in the eighties and nineties. Okay it's not the eighties and nineties anymore. We need to stop thinking like that. These cars the numbers are dwindling. Every time a car is found in a barn in a field in a old garage. That's one less to be found. The market's really interesting and it really is hard to predict but I will say that they're never gonna be as low as what the eighties and nineties were. I don't care what happens in the economy. This economy could tank six feet in the ground. And you're never gonNA find a charger for five hundred bucks and if you do get on the show. Let's talk about all right because I like hearing those stories too. I have buddies that have paid crazy prices for really cool. Be Bodies and bodies. You know. They're out there. I'm not saying that they're not out there. But the chances of you running into one for that cheap pretty slim and if you do there's a lot of guys that will triple your money right away. You know what I mean. So if you're looking for a quick investment car. Let's say you find this car that I'm talking about here on project car the week and once five grand for it. Well I'm looking at the car and I'm saying you know eighteen grand would be steel. In my opinion you get this car for thousand and you could easily flip it for fifteen. That's a ten thousand dollar come up. That's ten grand right in your pocket. It is what it is. So that's project of the week. Nineteen sixty-nine Plymouth road runner for twenty five five air. Grabber car numbers matching three eighty. Three four speed. What do you want consul? This things got it all. Let's try to get it for less than twenty all right. That's project car of the

Project Car of the Week: 1968 Plymouth Sport Satellite

"Up. I we have a missed. Green Nineteen Sixty Eight Plymouth. Sports satellite for forty four. Hundred hundred dollars in Lenexa Kansas. That is definitely seen better days but it is still very much savable. So let's let's get into the at nineteen sixty eight plymouth. Satellite Light dominator shows seventy thousand miles title. Status is clean and it has an automatic transmission project car. Complete original runs brain good needs left quarter quarter in front floor patches no trades. Please don't recommend driving due to bad gas and brakes being old. Okay so what we have is a three eighteen powered satellite that runs but doesn't doesn't Dr fuel system and brakes need to be gone through and there's quite a bit of metal work to be done looking at the photos you can see. The car needs a lot of work. So you tune it up get safely running and driving and you have a car that runs and drives but still needs a lot of metalwork. The picture looking inside the trunk has a rust hole. Big enough to stick a leg through. So that's a problem problem The car does look good. Pretty complete. you're going to need a battery and all the basic tuneup parts. Because you're GONNA WANNA go through this thing mechanically before you you you know. Take it out on the road. It's a column shifted automatic with a Split Bench seat and overall. I would say that this car is absolutely favorable and a low price of forty forty four hundred. This car would be an excellent choice for someone who wants to be body moped without completely breaking the bank. Perfect for the hobbyist. Do It yourself enthusiasts who wants to learn and do a lot of the work themselves. These projects are great. And if you have the skills gills are you WANNA learn the skills. These types of cars are perfect for that I say this because being sports satellite although a higher trim level than the road runner we are putting it up against today in the grand scheme of things and collectability it does fall under a roadrunner. So that's both a good and a bad thing. Good because because the entry level into a satellite versus a road runner is generally cheaper depending on condition of course and it's bad because if you invest too much it may take a very long time to ever see a good return on investment if you ever decide to sell the car but if you're looking just for you know a car to have fun with and and you're not considering the investment aspect by all means you can start here for under five grand and have yourself a great project so I would say that this sport satellite is a great by. Why does it need a lot of work? Scher but it's a great entry level project

If you talk about year one thousand nine hundred seventy. They came up with but this idea to run a marathon all in central park twenty six miles and to get some people to run a marathon in central park seems crazy at the time for the very first New York City Marathon.

This is what's now known as the running boom and by the end of the running boom the New York City marathon marathon had more people who wanted to run the race than it had space for. Today's New York City. Marathon can handle about fifty three thousand runners more slots than any other marathon in the world and yet Micheal Cap Harasser told me they still have to turn away around one hundred thousand people. Do you ever run into people getting upset. Set that they couldn't get into your race. I have had some people say that they've had Challenges but did you ever get anybody like.

The Lucky Country

"To understand why Australia has gone so long without its economy. Shrinking I spoke to guide Abell Lumley deputy governor of the Reserve Bank of strata, the ustralia central Bank. He gave basically three reasons I lock said always thought with lock those. I finest book in the stroller, which is the titles ironic, but cooled the lucky country, and that's often the nickname the Israel, given and. And for good reason, his an extract from that book, Australia is a lucky country run mainly by second rate. People who share it's luck. Oh my God. That's the Kiwi side of you. He's writes about the luck Australia has been like the Roadrunners streaking through the desert dodging. Oh, kind of bums angles at the world could throw on it. And as for the particular kind of luck location in this part of the world in Asia is being beneficial particularly of light over the last fifteen years. Also, China's building a lot of stuff they need steel, and we have the two major inputs to make steel. So we have on oil. We have call. There's a lot of minerals and all that red dirt out in the Austrailia outback. There's gold uranium lithium for phone batteries and China's been buying a lot of it. And also, the big ones guide to bell just said, Iran, ore and coal, and it's not just I an oral and coal and all those minerals. Australia is also selling to Asia things that you don't really think of as exports. Our exports specifically education and tore them students from Asia love studying Australian, universities and tour. Love Bondi Beach in Sydney, and all the other great beaches been pronouncing Bondi Beach incorrectly. My whole life, by the way. But anyways that is the luck side of things. Let's go to the second part of the formula. What is that? There is something about the institutions which met at two I think institutions so what he means is kind of the way that the government is set up works pretty well, balancing the economic cycle. So for one the government typically saves during the good years, you can win an election by saying I am going to be more fiscally prudent than than my opposition saving during the good times. This is a big deal because if the government saves during the good times, then the public is more likely to be okay with the government spending money during the bad times. So for example, two thousand nine which was a horrible year for the global economy. Australian politicians were able to respond so there was a fairly lodge cash handout to households. There was a sort of spending. Program on school holes and things like that some of it was just cashed the people, and then there was some Texas for businesses, and it's not just the government saving in the good times.

Policy makers like Tobel scrambled to insure deposits that everyday people wouldn't rush to take out the money from the Bank, and then the bank's own funding guaranteed by the government to make sure that the Australian banks didn't run out of money. Exactly.
