India's Farmer Protests: Why Are They So Angry?

"Next on a protest movement in India. It has drawn the interest of pop stars and climate activists and sent people into the streets for a cause. What's fascinating about the cause they're fighting for, is how unfasten ating it initially seems, farmers are protesting over new rules for wholesale markets. One of those rules matter so much. The answer reveals something about a giant nation, its past and its possible future. NPR's Lauren Frayer begins at one of the markets in western India. Yeah, I like. Okay, So this is a wholesale market and sort of a dusty lot between looks like warehouses here. Yes. Yes. This is good, Skunk. Oh, yeah, Wholesale agent, but this is all regulated by the government. Yes, they're appointed by the government. They're paying market fees can vote How is showing me around his local wholesale market, one of thousands run by the government where Indian farmers sell their crops Auction. Takes bids for eggplants trucks disgorge bales of collie flower wave through waist high piles of green beans. These markets were set up in the 19 sixties in India's Green revolution. When the government started subsidizing pesticides and irrigation. It helped boost yields and made India self sufficient in food. But it did not lift many farmers themselves out of poverty. My father has not much educated Lord Howe comes from a long line of grain farmers. The average Indian farm is about 2.5 acres. These are not big commercial farms like in the American West, and with climate change, mechanization and rampant development, not to mention the pandemic. Indian farmers are struggling load houses at our place. Water is not Report supplies water, Not there that much water as much as when you go. So exactly exactly exactly lot of problem is that the production cost off. Traditional farming is going higher day by day, so the help the Indian government passed three new laws last year they aimed to deregulate the way produces bought and sold. Wholesalers and grocery chains no longer have to buy it. These government run markets they could do deals directly with farms. Many farmers are not happy, though, because you know Agriculture prices are subject to a lot of volatility. Economists seem a bad lawyer says farmers got used to selling of these government run markets, which guarantee them a minimum price. So it's a safety net for the farmers. When prices go down, the government says it will still set prices for certain crops, and it's not closing these markets just adding more options. That son Jake Ohad is still worried. Ginger Allah Miggy. Eventually he's a middle man who buys from farmers here. Don't he says he's worried big corporations will circumvent these markets and obliterate small traders like him. As we chat. Another man interrupts. We're proud of you will be the King of World Niners, and this is basically what's happened with the farm laws. It's all devolved into political arguments. Agriculture reform has long been the third rail of Indian politics. Successive governments avoided it. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to do it now on a national scale. The rules have always varied by state and by crop economist giant ego says mode. I made a mistake by not explaining this well. The amazing thing is that the more the government passed these laws in the middle of a pandemic. They just quickly passed it without any discussion. You could have gone to people talked about it Godfrey back because these are long term proposals proposals now laws that affect the approximately 800 million Indians who depend on farming for a living. There's been a lot of confusion. Farmers here in Western India don't have the same concerns as in the north of the country that they moved more delicious than me getting shit carry those air. The rich farmers from the north you see protest, Ng says a tomato farmer here named um, but a sun up. He's got nine family members to feed. He can't afford to take a day off to protest. The protests have been dominated by farmers from northern India, the country's bread basket. They grow mostly grain and rely on government markets. More than a tomato farmer like sun up who can sell out of the back of his truck. Northern farmers see these laws is the first step toward dismantling all the aid they've gotten since the Green Revolution. Including price guarantees for wheat, rice and 20 other crops. I'm your bony I mean, bony, but not for my tomatoes. Sun Up, says he's never been eligible for the price guarantees that wheat growers get a majority of India's farmers or not. Meanwhile, farmers in several states are already circumventing these government wholesale markets and have been for years well, These conveyor belts are moving quickly. This produce packing collective started more than a decade ago, when eight farmers banded together. Now it has a sprawling campus. It's co owned by more than 10,000 farmers. This is the banana, I think Chambers Banana ripening chamber. This collective bypasses government wholesalers and sells directly to stores. Villas. Shin Dae is the founder market is ready to pay me back. Better place then I should capture that market is Roper. Depending on government. He says he got fed up waiting decades for government reforms, so he took matters into his own hands and started this collective. For others, the pandemic has forced them to consider new ways of selling their produce. So these air your grapes Here's yes. If grandfather and great farmer Abby shake shall kisses. His harvest came right when government run wholesale markets closed last year because of Cove, it actually opportunity, so he and his friends all farmers in their twenties who'd gone to college, started selling on Twitter and got more for their produce. Bobby Shake, says his heart is with his fellow farmers who've been protesting even if they don't share all the same concerns. His head, he says, is on how to solve some of the inefficiencies he sees in the way his forefathers have long done business and he doesn't really trust the government to do it. When I'm just out to get the amulet and no I did buy it guys off the coast of Calabrese. I think our generation is going to have to try to figure this out, he says. Lauren Frayer NPR news in Nash IQ.

An only once but twice The second impeachment for quote Inciting an insurrection there was abundant evidence that those plans those who were going to the capital not to peacefully protest but to incite violence. And dare. I say insurrection.

Listen to the whole show for the latest denver. Sports stories on thirteen ten kfi k. That was back in december. That governor.

Relief at an hardaway is an owner of a colorado springs a barbershop. She filed a lawsuit challenging the case on the basis that the law violates the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment for analysis. Joined this morning by someone very familiar. With the case as glenn. Roper is a pacific legal foundation attorney on that case and he weighs in this morning. Glenn welcome to the show. Thank you good morning. Certainly appreciate your taking the time. All right let's dive right in. Shall we now. We are aware that covert nineteen does disproportionally affect people of color but is that disparity enough for the state of colorado to base. Its relief on not in our view as you know. Gail small businesses are the backbone of the economy and with the covid nineteen pandemic. They've been devastated. And not because there's a problem with their business plan or or something like that because the government has required them to stay shut So when the government then offers release a as the colorado legislature did. It has to do so in a racially neutral way. The constitution prohibits them from provided not released solely based on race and Rather than than doing it based on race We think they should be providing relief on the basis of those businesses that are harmed that have been damaged and detrimentally affected by the by the pandemic shutdown orders. Now there's president. What does the supreme court had to say about If you're going to engage in race conscious measures it has to be done. In very limited circumstances and in fact they apply. What is called strict scrutiny. It's the the harshest Sort of review. The the most extreme review the supreme court applies and it means the government. If they want to do something based on race they have to have a compelling governmental interest. It can't just be something that they think is important. It has to be compelling and then they have to apply that restriction in a way that is the narrowest means possible Obviously with the the history of race in this country they the supreme court wants to make that they are very careful about when the government is allowed to make racial distinctions because those sorts of things can often go badly and unfortunately that seems to be the primary narrative these days with the so-called societal systemic racism and again it's important to point out it's a difficult conversation to have because this is not to say that there's anything against minorities or minority owned businesses. But glenn as you pointed out. Covert nineteen though it does disproportionally affect minorities. Well it's also knocked the legs out. It's colorblind it's knocked the legs out from the drivers of not only colorado's but the nation's economy and we're talking small business and every small business that has been affected In this in this terrible way by the pandemic should have equal access. You know it makes no sense to say that a business that hasn't been affected. That is doing great. you know. Maybe they have an online business or something that is that is thriving during the pandemic makes no sense to say they should have access to release whereas a non minority owned business that is struggling and suffering the effects of the pandemic has no access to it because simply because of the race of their owners. Six forty two now thirteen ten. Kfi a thirteen ten kfi k. Ain't dot com joined by glenn roper Pacific legal foundation attorney. All right. so. What is the overarching intent of this case obviously to remove the race based component. But beyond that yeah we. We would like the relief to be distributed as soon as possible. Certainly not trying to do anything to slow that down in fact that we think they should speed it up but when they when they do it The government has to do it in a way that is not discriminatory on.

"Back in november latina and latino voters helped deliver the presidency to joe biden in key swing states like georgia and especially arizona. Let the next. Voters helped turn former red states. Blue and during the campaign biden made a long list of commitments to our communities on day. One i'm sending to the united states. Congress a immigration bill. We're gonna find those kids. We're going to unite them with their parents. The opening school safely will be a national priority for the biden harris administration. Reverse trump's rollbacks of one hunter public health and environmental rules biden has said he'll invest in education and healthcare for letting us he said he'll stop border wall construction and that he'll work with congress to create a path to citizenship for undocumented people but in also said he'll crackdown pollution in communities of color and reduce incarceration so in the lead up to the inauguration that usa reached out to young denness and latinos around the country to your what promises they're hoping biden will keep and what they want biden to do that he hasn't committed to yet plus we're going to speak with these young people about how the changes they wanna see would actually impact their own lives. We're going to start this very non. Comprehensive survey by speaking with virginia. Blasio's virginia's a ninth generation daytona who up near a city on the texas mexico border were in the south texas. Brush country so a lot of trees and prickly pear cactus virginia is also an environmental science and policy consultant that usa producer. Scarsi spoke with virginia. And she's going to pick up the story from here. Virginia lives in a rural area on a fourth generation. Cattle ranch that been her family of for close to one hundred and twenty years. We inherited it from my great uncle. Who was a grand champion calf roper. During the great depression he traveled the radio circuit with his brother. You know they were fortunate enough to be born into families that had a lot of land and so they were able to run cattle and support their families. That way and my dad was enamored with that history of cowboy culture. He virginia and her brother on the land. She remembers running around as a little kid watching her. Dad moved these huge cows from field to field and she thinks growing up this way set the foundation for a love of nature that eventually led her to go to grad school to study climate change. And that's where she was. When in two thousand eleven he had still all the cattle on the ranch because the drought guy particularly bad and There was a national study. That came out shortly after that drought showing bet Climate change me the heat waves longer and temperatures more intense that year and so we know that climate change has already been impacting us. There had always been droughts in south texas though. Virginia says they got worse and worse over time. It meant the grass wouldn't grow. Which meant virginia's dad had to start buying a lot of food to keep his cattle alive so much so that he wasn't making money off his ranch anymore. You know it's kind of funny. Because i was always kinda hassling. My dad was like dad counts. Produce methane and methane is really bad for the climate but when it came to the point where he had to sell them because he realized a drought was so bad. It put things into a different perspective for me. Because i realized that he really didn't have a choice. I realized that we had kind of gotten into this plane. With climate change where it wasn't theoretical. It wasn't something far off in the future that could happen. It was it was happening now

Mental Health Education

"Roper to mentally. Automobile. Thanks very much for joining us. So tell us about the mental podcast. Why did you decide to setup? Sure. So mental to the podcast today signifies mental health is four nine, which sometimes I regret because it has quite long. But a few a good idea of what it's about. And I set it up back in twenty eighteen having had a lot of experience of mental health through my life from quite young age and I wanted to turn that into something positive. You know what I land in terms of my own mental health biddle say tree volunteering with the likes of Samaritans Nightline which is at the students Sashi university equivalent. Andrea and other kind of mental health related work like that. I'm so it was really just a way to take what I'd learned on trying to something positive I'm breakdown stigma because I recognize just how. Much. Worse. Dot Com make people's mental health as if the issues on bad enough then you're getting judged from discriminated against for them. Can you tell us about your personal experience of mental health winded now, it'll kind of stopped fear walk kind of experiences have you had. Show. So it's always a bit tricky to. figure out how they might experience and started and part of the eyes of the problem. Right because mental health is difficult at times to articulate because it affects how brains work could affects our cognitive abilities and part of that for me was experiencing depression from a young age. One of my symptoms is memory loss on. So this whole parts of my childhood where my mental health was bad which I have now. Gaps, in memory. So it's difficult say how how that started but right from some of my earliest memories I remember. Actively being happy which I now know was pretending to be happy. But at the time, it just felt like happiness and presenting in a way that the adults around me felt comfortable with K. not side mess. I had a seemingly good reason dot just became like a natural part of my life and it wasn't until looking back on that years. Later I realized that was depression in the I was showing masking behaviors partly because of the stigma. Can encourage us to try and pretend that Iraq-iran went. And was there anything that happens to take the when you go to older like maybe a diagnosis or something that helps you manage things better. Sure. Definitely. So I reached a point with depression in particular. Why? I was so bad I. I sort of had already realized what it was. So this was. Much later. So early adult head. I. The symptoms which is becoming more more overwhelming, and so actually the thing I was struggling with most of the time was I wasn't sleeping format. And I had previously been someone that hadn't had any issues around insomnia and so that was a real kind of breaking point where I I can't do this anymore conscious put up with this. I'm trying push symptoms down and just. Tried to walk as what it felt like on. In trying to figure out what was going on, I was dangled out of reading. Online and I think still exists today is a little quiz type thing on the NHS website the it went diagnose you with depression, but it will ask you questions and give you an idea of whether you should at least go to the GP. And I kept taking tasked I. Think I got quite obsessive were thought to be honest. and. I was even you continue judge yourself with this this kind of stuff right and so I was trying to kind of downplay my answers to be maybe I'm exaggerating and even when I was downtime, my aunt says every time it was telling me it's go see the GP I'm so that is what I did and I went in Dan with a head full of hair old symptoms and I thought well, what if I bias wife they just what if they just diagnosed me with this because I listed out the symptoms from the website And you know, I think all of this, it's a reflection of. Full shattering. Mental Health Education. I'm involved in now my understanding was so little I didn't Tan lie so much of the stigma that it was easy for me to believe the I was doing something wrong that this was some kind of character flaw as opposed to this being an onus and something I was struggling with and disaster the with. So. When I went to the GP rather than telling them about the depression symptoms I fake his moral insomnia on when I still a depression diagnosis that I thought to myself. Okay. This this really is And That was initially just a massive weight off to know that there is something. Thank going on from the name I don't have to feel like this is supposed out that.

Whats Next for the U.S. Air Forces Next Generation Air Dominance Program

"I'm wondering if you can kind of go back and tell us what is next generation air dominance, and where did that program emerged from? How did we get from nowhere to a demonstrator because didn't just happen like that. Well, it it. It seemed to I. Mean You know when? Roper is Dr over the essence secretary of the Air Force Brat Position Technology Logistics. Announced very abruptly yesterday during his speech that this flight demonstrator had flown I. think that everybody by surprise I wasn't expecting that kind of announcement during his speech today and It's exciting I mean I. I can't be as as an aviation aerospace journalist with an interest in military aviation I mean this that's the that's as good as it gets a secret of flight demonstrator for new fighter that you. You hear about the first time it's confirmed that there's nothing more exciting except for actually seeing it, which I hope we see when they but it turns out. I. Mean there there is a paper trail there's a, there's a little breadcrumbs that have been sprinkled. Along the path of public comments, I air force leaders over the past couple years leading to this, and some of them have only become sensible in retrospect now that we know that this thing really does exist. But in some ways are actually quite explicit and I think I'd point initially to an exchange ahead with journal Goldfine who just retired a month ago but a year ago at the same event even though it wasn't virtual at the time, it was in Bersin. Gerald goldfine chief of staff had a press conference I was asking about next generation air dominance in my big question was about the propulsion side of it congress at the time was was expressing quite a bit of frustration with the air force because it's been billions of dollars on adapted cycle propulsion, and there was no publicly available roadmap to use it, and so they're saying. Why are you still asking for this money? We have no place to put it. You know. So tell us where you're going to put A. I, put that question to many explain what you know. It's it's bit difficult because there's a live classification while tennis and so there's only so much. We can say they said L. L. Region his exact quote he said he's here's our. Strategy. We have five key technologies that were investing in that we don't intend to have all come together on a single. To be able to do the mission. In the future, we expect these technologies to be adaptable to existing platforms, and we expect these technologies to come forward into a family. I, know use family assistance a lot but really, and truly that's the next generation dominance. So as a so our intent is to keep these joint technologies moving aggressively and have them come together. They will all mature in accelerate at different paces as they become ready. You'll see US adapting them on existing platforms, sensors, and weapons, and also looking at new platforms sensors. So that was what he said and then I I didn't understand what really what he was getting out. I just didn't he didn't answer my question. So I repeated my question. What is the you know? When are we going to see a roadmap for adaptive cycle propulsion? And he his answer was there has to be a test article to be able to take some of those technologies to mature. That's probably about as far as I can go in quote right so what he was saying they're in retrospect is we have five technologies. We're GONNA put on in Gad. He didn't say but sounds like adaptive cycle propulsion is one of them and You know they need a test article, a flight test demonstrator in other words. To validate the majority of the technologies in-flight. So. That was almost as explicit as the air force has been about that. But really there was a time when. The Department of Defense was even more explicit about the the plans to actually use flight demonstrators for next generation are dominant and it goes back Congressional testimony in twenty sixteen at the time Frank Kendall who was the Under Secretary of defense for Acquisition and technology a acquisition technology in the justice. It has written testimony. included this written test, the House of Representatives. twenty. This was actually in calendar year twenty fourteen and it was going to launch a program in. Fiscal year.

So that gives you a sort of the background on how these. flight demonstrators came into existence and what their purpose walls. We know from Rocha's comments that the flight demonstrator that he's referring to be called a full-scale flight demonstrator so as a subscale or Even, a large aircraft that is meant to extrapolate the flying qualities of even of an even larger aircraft.

Tom Hanks goes to war (again) in the World War II drama

"19. So many of these big blockbuster movies are now going to be available on your TV as opposed to the movie theater, and this one was for the movie. Industry for the movie studios. This one must have been right on the line. Richard Roper, the new Tom Hanks movie Greyhound Big budget, lots of special effects. It's a World War two. Venture film right and they chose. They chose to go with Apple TV plus to release it. Exactly right. In fact, you know the beginning of this year way back in the day when we were going to movies in theatres I talked about this is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year because, as you mentioned it's a Tom Hanks film. And who has Dunmore in terms of entertainment movies and miniseries for World War two that Tom Hanks of her Saving Private Ryan and then band of brothers in the Pacific and Greyhound. He wrote this and actually stars in this row. And although it's not based on a true story, it's actually based on a novel. It's inspired by the very real events of the Battle of the Battle of Atlanta. Sick, which you know was waged on the Atlantic Ocean was longest running battle in all of World War two. And it was all about convoys of allied ships trying to get supplies across the pond, while German u boats were attacking from all ends. That's what this movie is all about. Now. The invention. Tom Hanks connection to war, too. And the press junket for the release of this film, So the people obviously they go out. They publicized All They want to talk to you about its Corona virus, right? Yeah, it's just tell your side of the times. Well and, of course, because Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, were among the very, very first public figures to test positive. I believe you could correctly. I believe they're in Australia make making a movie. So, you know, I understand that and Tom Hanks has got such a no, he has. He has earned a role as more than just an actor, writer director producer. He's someone who's been around for a long time, but involved in a lot of things very intelligent and Educated guy when it comes to current events, so people do want to hear from him Now. The unfortunate part about all of this row is that Greyhound is not a great movie. In fact, I'm giving it to and 1/2 stars for the biggest disappointment. And I'll tell you why you remember. A few months ago we talked to Harrison Ford, who had done a movie called Call of the Wild or the Procedure. I he talked about how in a lot of these battle movies, war movies. They overdo it with the CG, and he actually said member, he actually said there are too many bleeping planes in the sky in a lot of these movies, and that's exactly unfortunately, what happens here. They did film some of this aboard a ship, I believe was the Canadian ship. But mostly it's CG Iroh, and it's very obvious that it is because you know the swooping cameras. It's almost like a Michael Bay movie. And so many planes in the sky and so many ships, etc. And so great special effects and then a lot of technical jargon. The problem is, we don't get to know any of the other characters other than the Tom Hanks character, and we got Haven't we don't know what we talked about the great War movies and you and I have talked about a lot of them. We did a podcast around Memorial Day about some of the great American War films. We get to know the characters first, we're emotionally invested in them, and then if something happens to one of them, or there's heroics or tragedy, it has an impact in this movie. All the characters are so superficially drawn that at one point, but Tom Hankscharacter asked a guy on the ship. He gets his name wrong and goes. I'm sorry, I'm still learning who everybody else's. And I'm like we are, too and that's never a good thing in a movie like this. Wow. Oh, that's That is so disappointing. When does it I'm still gonna watch. When does it premiere tonight? Or tomorrow? Tomorrow? And I will say this, too. I do think it might look better on the big screen. You know, maybe those special effects on a giant screen they either could've been magnified or they would have played better. He watching it in a home viewing environment. It just took me out of the film like I'm saying, Well, they clearly did this with computer generated stuff, and I think they just fell in love with the

20 Minutes With The CMO Of Crossrope

"Well surge. Welcome to the show firstly. Thank you very much for taking your time. Talk today now. Thanks for having been really interested in this topic. It's something that I've always tried to do. The pulse like I'm sure many people that have customers of the past said they struggle with it and they give up so we're talking today about jump. Raven crossroads in particular. Can you give us a bit? More context about crossroad. An-and really how you came to be involved with with with business. Yeah absolutely so cross up. It's a it's a unique jump rope. Workout experience We created some time ago. Really with with this idea of giving people a funny way to get fit you know wherever they go And we'll get into the benefits of jumping rope. I'm sure but I joined the business back in two thousand and fifteen but really been jumping rope probably for the past ten twenty years. I'd say I think I I. I picked it up when I started boxing back university on known to go to tool for endurance and whatnot and I found that it helped a lot with my work that I played a lot of basketball growing up and still do and then you know even when I put the boxing gloves down. It's just one of those tools that have always kept around in my gym bag and enjoyed using it as a one tool. Eventually a came across the crossroad system. Back in two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen when it? Kinda I got introduced to the market became close friends with our CEO. Right right now and in the system similarly changed the game for me. Kind of became one of my go-to tools. It's really because of its unique design about our systems. We've created interchangeable set of jump. Ropes where you can easily clip in different weights and ropes in and out of your handles and that gives you more engaging in Bristol workout. Then you know what you get with a single. Abc Rope so similar to how you'd maybe have a wide range of dumbbells in gym and we like to offer different weights. Ropes that help with different fitness fitness goals. And so another thing that we really focus on on like jump. Ropes are ropes are S- are primarily designed for jump rope fitness so we've built on specifically along with their APP workouts. Help you get lean build endurance and build strength so they're primarily. Ah Fitness tool and with that. We've we've Created a companion fitness APP. That gives you access to you. Know hundreds of really workouts You can follow along to and do do anywhere really in thirty minutes or less which considering these schedules these days. Everyone's on the go. All the time is exactly what we need to even now the situation of like staying indoors. It's perfect time to pick up a rope and just do that anywhere wherever you in a house for example yeah exactly Amina Sometimes You know we'll get a lot of questions about the benefits of jumping rope. And some of them are obvious and some of them are not obviously great for building endurance and Cardio floodway but the portability of the tool especially in today's day and age on the ability to take your workouts anywhere and like you mentioned them at home is really important for a lot of people you know even before the craziness of today. We talked to a lot of people people who love the ability to be able to squeeze in a workout at lunchtime. You know we've pulled our community recently just to kind of get a sense of the versatility and different ways. People are adding jumper workouts into their routine and at the list really goes on. I mean some like I mentioned earlier. They use it does warm up others use it. As a workout finisher others added to their strengthen hit circuits some use it in place of Iran or combine it with Yoga practice. And so it's really. It's a really interesting tool for anyone who's looking to add it to whatever it is that they're all redoing. I hadn't even thought about the benefits to things like footwork. When we're talking about boxing honestly stereotypically in films and such you see people always jumping rope and you think that's obviously that warm up endurance. But you don't even consider the additional supplementary benefits like footwork which is obviously such an important parts of sports like basketball boxing even things like NFL. Everything thoughts you still need to have quite good agility. And that's the such supplementary benefit the thing necessarily comes to mind. Yeah no absolutely and that's something. I saw firsthand when I first started using it back in the day in day in. And it's something that I feel like. Sometimes there's a bit of a stigma with jumping road that you need to be well coordinated or athlete to be successful with it. And that's something we've really tried to think about when we built the cross rope system and what we've learned by running workshop shops especially early on is that we've really found a way to drastically accelerate the learning learning curve and That religious goes into something. I'm sure we'll hit on. But it's the the weighted rope aspect and so when a lot of people. I started jumping rope or they try to learn how to jump rope. It's typically with the CDC ROPE. Something you'd you'd find out that. Nisar Department Store what most gyms Carey in trouble with that. Is that throat this to light? And so if you're struggling with coordination or tiny becomes really difficult to tiny jumps and that's where a lateral a lot of mistakes in triplets. Happened in where the frustration comes from. And so what we've done is we've introduced a range of weighted ropes in for example when we speak with our customers were just getting started. We often recommend a half pound. Roper Market Lean set and it's ideal getting started or because what it does is it slows down your rotation and that extra little bit of resistance makes it easy to feel the rope turning around your body and that helps with the timing the coordination so you know we have seen people who try jumping rope with plastic. Pbc ropes. I should say in the past go from struggling to string along fifty to one hundred jumps within five minutes so I think the that piece of it. The coordination is super important from both sides of it. You're already in athlete. Experienced Stephanie. Going TO HELP IMPROVE. foot speed. And if you've never jump rope before you feel like you're not at that level yet. In terms of coordination there are ways where the system kind helps you learn this particular skill and exercise very quickly. I think what's touchback on? Then is that you mentioned. There is some stigma. Wave jumping rope. We think because of it being portrayed in films and other forms of media crossovers and all sorts. It makes us being the we. The average person have tried it before. Call just dive in and do it. And I've always said to myself the arm too heavy footed or to not like my feet. I'm really bad at jumping rope so I just stopped myself from other trying even though I know. Be a helpful tool. So how are you trying to help? People get over the stigma to understand that it can be for everyone. And if they gave the Patrol I really understand what you mean by. Having a slight resistance failed to get more controlled. How you hoping people vs into that transition of like item do this. We try to tackle it a few different ways. And I'll tell you a quick story. I mean when we were at the Arnold Classic in Ohio a couple of years ago you know they have like two hundred thousand people walking by and we held a little sixty second challenge at our booth where it was basically a you know trying to do as many jumps as you can with a one pound and winner at the end you know. We gave away a couple of a couple of sets and it was really opening to us to see just how little people know about way. Ropes feel that you get and it's and it's you know when we see you know big guys come by and trying to do this challenge and the just getting absolutely winded within sixty seconds looks on their faces really kind of told everything and so for us. It's been a challenge to kind of share that experience through our marketing and through our storytelling and saint goes with you. Know getting started because of the stigma because of the challenges people may have faced in the past and what you may be seeing in the media the ways we try to approach it is really through education and so we try to share the experiences of other jumpers in our community who have kind of gone through that experience themselves we have a lot of tutorials and beginner oriented. Workouts are fitness at and so we help guide people through those where it really helps. You know how to get started. I feel with other jump ropes. You don't really get the content piece in that sometimes make makes it really difficult because you you get the rope in. You're not sure what to do with it. And then you know we I think the most interesting pieces just People don't know what to compare it to the weighted rope aspects. Because they've never tried anything like that and so we really try to make it as easy as possible to give cross rope a try so you know we we have a sixty day. Return policy rarely used. You know we we tell people hate. Get the ropes experience for yourself. See The difference. If you don't like it we'll take the we'll take it back and give a full refund in through those efforts. We've got a lot of people to give the system a try and once you try it. You instantly know the difference. He has certainly see it for yourself. Because when you feel that resistance heavy rope turning around your body at it's a game changer. As it was for me when I first tried

"Really great talking to you too all right everybody. Thanks for hanging in there for a two parter. I know sometimes people are like white. I'm halfway done and it's not out yet. I hope this was worth it. I certainly thought it was. I just loved this episode man. She is just amazing. A lot of people are probably wondering now whatever happened to the founder of the church. Fred Phelps her grandfather against grandfather well amazingly and I don't have all the details on this and there are a little little scarce and she was Kinda not cagey about it but it wasn't something we wanted to focus on. He had a change of heart late in life and this guy with very very strong beliefs. Obviously and if you'll remember from part one he actually was a civil rights activist and he was very very firmly anti-racist which is kind of hard hard to wrap your mind around given everything else that's going on here and he got very sick. He was put in hospice and the church actually ended up excommunicating. Him Voting voting him out from the Church and they wouldn't let anyone visit him when he was dying and Megan snuck in there. There's a personal story here. But she basically was able to go in there and then they found out she was in there and wouldn't let her go see him again. It's just heart wrenching. And Megan married now but she never thought you'd be able to get married because is when she was growing up. Most of the church was just her family. There were very few outside members as you might expect from a church that spouts this kind of stuff. So she's married now. She's happier now now but she's still cut off from her family and everyone she grew up with. She's a strong believer in free speech rights. which makes sense even though she disagrees within speaks out against her use of that right the right of free speech and the sort of terrible hateful way? She's still a strong believer in free speech rights. What a complicated but amazing just just a brilliant soul I just and I hate the word soul in episode about this by self-rule that she's a great great great great interview and she is just an amazing raising person and I'm laying it on a little thick so I'm gonNA leave it right there but the book is called on follow a memoir of loving and leaving the Westboro Baptist church I just I find this whole thing mind blowing it has shown? It's also have worksheets for this episode. So you can review what you've learned from Megan Phelps Roper. We've got transcripts for this episode episode. Those are found in the show notes as well. If you want to know how I built a network that includes people like this..

His Tanner Tolbert Tanner Tolbert Tolbert loved his name. And I WANNA keep on loving the rest of my entire pick. Yes the Jason. It was a tolbert now. Formerly Roper was a contestant on the nineteenth season of the bachelor limited a week eight. The nineteen season was about that was Oh Oh God. Chris soules the guy who got a hit and run resources or no. Yes yes you had a very dark ending She's married to Tater Tolbert she he goes. She was on the Bachelor in nineteen. She goes on Bachelor in paradise for the second season. She wins it because she needs her. Now husband Tanner. Tanner was on the eleventh season of the Bachelorette Lorette. He was eliminated in week. Six and he went on the Bachelor in paradise and Medicaid and they end up getting marrying and they end up falling in love and they win neither of them one right right the main shows they won the WHO show which has bachelor in paradise but they also won a relationship which is with each other just they got married and now they have seven hundred kids. Yeah right gets she delivered one of them in a in a closet main point is they don't matter anymore so they're like extreme. Who's the moment they went bachelor in paradise? People sort of stopped carrying unless us. You're really invested in. You know but people no I disagree with that I on. I guess anyone who's off the bachelor people don't care about but if you aren't a couple where both people were on. The bachelor came together because of the bachelor. There is people to care about you. They keep track of you. It's like Ashley I. And what's his name name. Jared oh I mean that's what I was saying. That's what I mean like if it's asser nation cares but it's like we're not reading about them anymore like you have to sort of be on the bachelor her bills get this like rung up of any other single bachelor former bachelor contestant like people are so people are invested in their relationship in ways that are bre leading to the verbs pretty. They have kids looking garbage starbucks. They do fun ads. Yeah I I think you do get you. Do get a significant amount of bump from being like successful bachelor cotton wool you do and then bachelor like brings you back because they want to keep on showing off. How like the create recreate love? So I personally forget all about these people then last week they they come bursting back into the headlines in the funniest way possible which has nothing to do with the bachelor it has nothing to do with reality. TV It has nothing to do with fights org cheating or any sort of like weird interpersonal drama. Well well that sort of GOP committed adultery so they tweets this How it came back was that some random person tweets screen shot of this draft kings million millionaire maker daily fantasy contest? They assemble tumble lineups from the players in the NFL. First Round playoff games and you. It's like fantasy sports online a ranking and at the top of the ranking it says the user name is Jade Roper Tolbert. And they're like I think this is like somebody from the bachelor but like but of the tweet is so gendered. It's like I only know this because my wife makes me watch. It's the most perfect leg. Reveal of this information you know as it turns out the yes lead. Jade Roper. Tolbert is at the top of the list of the fantasy and wins wins the million dollar prize in this like in the draft and at an and of course and like before anyone even looks into it the Dra- The company that does the does the draft is like re tweets her. You know all this stuff blake and then she had a sinking and she says Ha. That's me and tanner told me I shouldn't play draft Canes Metcalf Crying laughing googly. Eyes Face the he. So then. So it's Sorta like Oh L. O.. L. A. Random Bachelor contestant a woman of all things one the draft Qian's means million dollar thing so maybe it's sexism but then people who usually plays start to look into her Her elect work rosters her rosters at she submitted for this fantasy thing and they know they noticed that her husband was a known own high volume daily fantasy player meaning he would play them. He submitted the maximum amount of entries. One hundred fifty entries twenty five dollars each. That's expensive like like every week and basically when they looked at all of their entries that they'd submitted together which was three hundred entries. They were they each won fifty every single combination. Neither of them were duplex. They weren't duplicating each other. which is a sign of collusion essentially? They were colluding thing. So they say or tanner tells. ESPN in a phone interview. We each put in our separate players in our separate accounts and rooted for our own players. Nobody has ever said about us when we lost for seventeen straight weeks then of course somehow jade pick the right lineup somehow. Got The million and and the spotlight got shown on it and people especially since she's a woman assume that I do it all for her. If I had one I bet no would raise a flag. You know what I bet they would have but I think because he's he's famous he to and obviously the people were looking into them they would have looked into the many ways in notices. Well I agree that it's that because she's a woman everyone's like it's getting more attention but obviously they would have looked into your and what's obviously happening here. which is such a such a hard thing to I guess you're proving based on probability but like I don't know how you go about proving this sort of thing because it's like you can't work with someone else to make sure that you bet bet on different people or choose different people like no colluding with other people? And it's like here's this couple and they're doing completely separate things and they're doing the Max Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah like. How do you prove that they sat down at the dinner table and said Okay Baby? You're going to do these and I'm GonNa do these and then I'm GonNa give you thirty seven fifty thirty seven hundred dollars to like do your entries like I don't know how you approve that but that's definitely what it seems like you don't you don't prove it. You just say you know we're not going to give you the money you can't work to get there. Can't be evidence that you work together on this more you just say well. I guess our rules are rules and cover this. We have to learn. Give a million dollars and fix our rules because you you could get together with five people that you don't even really know friends or whatever and say we're GONNA put down every single mathematical combination of players and one of them will win and we'll split the money and like that'll still be more money than what we invested in. You know the the fact that the only had to do it you know two times or what are I. Don't even nine hundred seventy eight weeks away so one hundred fifty times under three hundred times seventeen straight weeks. That's a lot of investment in this. Yeah they they invested if they did If they each played the Max for seventeen weeks they spent sixty three thousand which is but what a great return investment they spent sixty three thousand now. They made a million right so they'll probably win this. They'll probably get the money but we have. I think they're going to get it and mainly because I think that this is just one of those things that like I. I don't understand how you prove that they didn't will you like how they worked gun. Say I mean I guess you're just like you. You say they're married. They worked together. But you're right you can't prove that leg and I think they just have seventeen weeks of losing does look good for them. Yeah but basically they have to just just changed their rules and say well we lost this. You know we these two figured out a way around the rules or whatever. They figured out a way to win and they won. I think people are just just mad. Because she's a girl and and you know it's not fair because if she just putting random lineup she's not actually playing the game And how do you root for a hundred fifty different lineups each week. That's not fun. You know you route you make one and you root for your lineup. Why they let people do one hundred around fifty entries is beyond me? Maybe that's that's on them again. Don't know how this sport were and it must be annoying dependable. The power like people who aren't quote high volume daily fantasy players are probably very resentful people who are high volume daily fantasy players because they have more money to spend exactly right because they're they're essentially playing hanging like a game they're they're not doing it for fun and entertainment. They're playing it like how do I. What's my best opportunity to win to actually win? This also can can be like a very dark thing where like there's just like not the most chill relaxed people do this. You know like I'm I'm sure. draftkings is made up of people who are on edge already. Oh I'm so really things. Oh when J J Tolbert shows up at number one and and did you. Did you notice on the screen shot where it shows the top ten. And it's just like like billy x three two three like like Sam one and six nine and then it's like J. Tolbert and then there's a photo all the other ones have no photos and jade's like me and my my my husband and my eighties and it's like I'm sure that's frustrating to people all to me. I'm sure it I'm sure it is anyway. this is really funny. We were we will find out. We will keep following this just because like I am genuinely genuinely intrigued by this and I want to know how this nets out But also like what are we. There had a weird story update. Yeah there hasn't been an update days so it just made me either. Lawyers are getting involved and we're ramped. Something's GonNa Happen or about what's happening. 'cause most recent and Doria something like there will be a legal fight but gave his dollars. Let's cut to the chase. Whatever Lane have even wearing lately? Well it was like sixty degrees this weekend so I my. I wore my my black Jean jacket that I love remember lane and guess what was in there. That's right five dollars from last season. Check offered that unless I had worn it in unseasonably early warm weather. Climate change climate change means. You can wear all kinds of different ever lane in depending on the day you never know. Whatever'll you're going to wear with climate? It's really hard to celebrate that weather. I have to say although I did sell I read it like internally. I was able to wear my Evelyn bomber jacket. Because has a bit the tote I rotated out but I've always wearing my ever lane jeans. They fit me perfectly Incredible anyway you know. We love ever laying..

And they're like I think this is like somebody from the bachelor but like but of the tweet is so gendered. It's like I only know this because my wife makes me watch. It's the most perfect leg. Reveal of this information you know as it turns out the yes lead. Jade Roper. Tolbert is at the top of the list of the fantasy and wins wins the million dollar prize in this like in the draft and at an and of course and like before anyone even looks into it the Dra- The company that does the does the draft is like re tweets her. You know all this stuff blake and then she had a sinking and she says Ha. That's me and tanner told me I shouldn't play draft Canes Metcalf Crying laughing googly. Eyes Face the he. So then. So it's Sorta like Oh L. O.. L. A. Random Bachelor contestant a woman of all things one the draft Qian's means million dollar thing so maybe it's sexism but then people who usually plays start to look into her Her elect work rosters her rosters at she submitted for this fantasy thing and they know they noticed that her husband was a known own high volume daily fantasy player meaning he would play them. He submitted the maximum amount of entries. One hundred fifty entries twenty five dollars each. That's expensive like like every week and basically when they looked at all of their entries that they'd submitted together which was three hundred entries. They were they each won fifty every single combination. Neither of them were duplex. They weren't duplicating each other. which is a sign of collusion essentially? They were colluding thing. So they say or tanner tells. ESPN in a phone interview. We each put in our separate players in our separate accounts and rooted for our own players. Nobody has ever said about us when we lost for seventeen straight weeks then of course somehow jade pick the right lineup somehow. Got The million and and the spotlight got shown on it and people especially since she's a woman assume that I do it all for her. If I had one I bet no would raise a flag. You know what I bet they would have but I think because he's he's famous he to and obviously the people were looking into them they would have looked into the many ways in notices. Well I agree that it's that because she's a woman everyone's like it's getting more attention but obviously they would have looked into your and what's obviously happening here. which is such a such a hard thing to I guess you're proving based on probability but like I don't know how you go about proving this sort of thing because it's like you can't work with someone else to make sure that you bet bet on different people or choose different people like no colluding with other people? And it's like here's this couple and they're doing completely separate things and they're doing the Max Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah like. How do you prove that they sat down at the dinner table and said Okay Baby? You're going to do these and I'm GonNa do these and then I'm GonNa give you thirty seven fifty thirty seven hundred dollars to like do your entries like I don't know how you approve that but that's definitely what it seems like you don't you don't prove it. You just say you know we're not going to give you the money you can't work to get there. Can't be evidence that you work together on this more you just say well. I guess our rules are rules and cover this. We have to learn. Give a million dollars and fix our rules because you you could get together with five people that you don't even really know friends or whatever and say we're GONNA put down every single mathematical combination of players and one of them will win and we'll split the money and like that'll still be more money than what we invested in. You know the the fact that the only had to do it you know two times or what are I. Don't even nine hundred seventy eight weeks away so one hundred fifty times under three hundred times seventeen straight weeks. That's a lot of investment in this. Yeah they they invested if they did If they each played the Max for seventeen weeks they spent sixty three thousand which is but what a great return investment they spent sixty three thousand now. They made a million right so they'll probably win this. They'll probably get the money but we have. I think they're going to get it and mainly because I think that this is just one of those things that like I. I don't understand how you prove that they didn't will you like how they worked gun. Say I mean I guess you're just like you. You say they're married. They worked together. But you're right you can't prove that leg and I think they just have seventeen weeks of losing does look good for them. Yeah but basically they have to just just changed their rules and say well we lost this. You know we these two figured out a way around the rules or whatever. They figured out a way to win and they won. I think people are just just mad. Because she's a girl and and you know it's not fair because if she just putting random lineup she's not actually playing the game And how do you root for a hundred fifty different lineups each week. That's not fun. You know you route you make one and you root for your lineup. Why they let people do one hundred around fifty entries is beyond me? Maybe that's that's on them again. Don't know how this sport were and it must be annoying dependable. The power like people who aren't quote high volume daily fantasy players are probably very resentful people who are high volume daily fantasy players because they have more money to spend exactly right because they're they're essentially playing hanging like a game they're they're not doing it for fun and entertainment. They're playing it like how do I. What's my best opportunity to win to actually win? This also can can be like a very dark thing where like there's just like not the most chill relaxed people do this. You know like I'm I'm sure. draftkings is made up of people who are on edge already. Oh I'm so really things. Oh when J J Tolbert shows up at number one and and did you. Did you notice on the screen shot where it shows the top ten. And it's just like like billy x three two three like like Sam one and six nine and then it's like J. Tolbert and then there's a photo all the other ones have no photos and jade's like me and my my my husband and my eighties and it's like I'm sure that's frustrating to people all to me. I'm sure it I'm sure it is anyway. this is really funny. We were we will find out. We will keep following this just because like I am genuinely genuinely intrigued by this and I want to know how this nets out But also like what are we. There had a weird story update. Yeah there hasn't been an update days so it just made me either. Lawyers are getting involved and we're ramped. Something's GonNa Happen or about what's happening. 'cause most recent and Doria something like there will be a legal fight but gave his dollars. Let's cut to the chase. Whatever Lane have even wearing lately? Well it was like sixty degrees this weekend so I my. I wore my my black Jean jacket that I love remember lane and guess what was in there. That's right five dollars from last season. Check offered that unless I had worn it in unseasonably early warm weather. Climate change climate change means. You can wear all kinds of different ever lane in depending on the day you never know. Whatever'll you're going to wear with climate? It's really hard to celebrate that weather. I have to say although I did sell I read it like internally. I was able to wear my Evelyn bomber jacket. Because has a bit the tote I rotated out but I've always wearing my ever lane jeans. They fit me perfectly Incredible anyway you know. We love ever laying..

"I can't go outside and work so it's like wow I guess I'm GonNa have to go in my shop today. Darn Darn really. I know. It's it's hard but somebody's gotTa do it right. It's it it might as well be us. It definitely definitely. I would say if you know any of your listeners. Happen to be in the Denver area in you can always swing by Red Rocks Community College. You can come in and talk to me over there. You need some advice or some help with joining our woodworking. Or if you're ever coming through the area please get ahold of me. I have an open door policy at my shop. I love having visitors. Come in I have a very large three thousand square foot facility in Wiz Myself Gentlemen and we love having people come in. Well that's nice. That's that's that would be wonderful well for anybody. That's in that area or passing through. Take him up on it. I'm have no doubt that roper can teach you quite a few things yes and you. Yeah no that's what I'm here for. I have several clients who will pop injure five minutes now. I need help with you. Know since lead on a box sir you know something like that and as I always tell him I am here to help you. This is you know what I do. I want to keep the art of would turning alive and in any way I can help you. That's what I'm there for. That sounds like a wonderful. That's a that's a good attitude and it's easy to see Z.. Y. You're a teacher because you know you have that willingness in you know what I was. I was very nervous when they offered. Offered me the position to teach It's nothing I had ever done before. I wasn't sure whether I could do it in I it just Kinda fell right into a now I love it. There's nothing else that I would want to. I love teaching. I Love I love the look on people's faces when and finally the Gouge to do what they've always wanted to do and all I had to do was help them just a little bit to get there. Yeah that's terribly rewarding. When you see that light go on in somebody's is I don't care what you're teaching? It doesn't matter woodworking crafting math. You know if you have the propensity to be a teacher. That's what you live off of that spark. It is an when I meet people who have maybe been in this little too long. And they've lost their spark or their Their explanations explanations have become just a little shorter and they can't get all the information out where they want to And I try to. I try unconscious of that like if I ever feel that way. Then I'm like okay. It's time to go take a break for maybe a week and sit back kind of recharge myself and then get back out there. You know there is really. There's there's some stuff that clients don't or you know students don't understand end about how much mental energy goes into teaching the. It's really hard to rest and recover from. Yeah an an and definitely teaching. You put a lot of yourself out there and a lot of yourself into it. It's not it doesn't only come on when you walk into that classroom. You're thinking about it ahead of time. Preparing whatever and so the burn out factor is always a thing for teachers. It is and you know not just for teachers. I but I've been reading a lot about this Influence Sir burnout lately. You know from a lot of the people that you know I followed online and they are starting to they. Just don't have the energy to keep up with the demand that the customers want from their show or from their a youtube channel and others been. There's been some guys who have just shut down they. They can't do it anymore. And I think you're by hopefully Philippe pacing myself. You know I won't run into that and I think that's what you have to do to keep that passion and and and not make it work right now so we're just about out of time rope. I WanNa thank you but I always close with the same question and I love to hear the answers. If you could spend a day in your woodshop working with anyone alive dead real imaginary who would you spend with. Wow Lil would turn or it could be anybody. I didn't say a wood Turner. Okay if I could spend one day in my shop with one person it would be Pablo Picasso. That man had more more ideas were in more mediums. He did more amazing things with his hands than any other person. The I have ever researched or looked up and I try to follow a lot of artists and things like that but every the time every time I visit one of his exhibits every time I look you know his paintings and sculptures. I'm just in awe. Yeah he does just some some really interesting stuff and it's unique You could look at a Picasso piece not knowing who did it and you could chances. Are you could figure out. That was his yes. His style is very distinctive And you know from across the room you could always tell the Casa right there definitely. Would you teach them outta would turn without a doubt. He would probably do a lot of that multi axis stuff that we were talking about earlier and he would probably do better than me much more quick re do I would sit there in awe of the man and then not only that. I don't know what he would carver. Pay On it. That you know would just be amazing. You know. And that's the thing when when I look at artists who cross over in mediums. Those are the people that inspire me the most right because they're able to bring that experience from another media into that one and often times it's very successful and it's not as easy to do. He was people. Thank you know I dabble in painting but I would never show anyone might paintings just not you know of the quality that I would want but someday I'd love to incorporate radim into my attorneys now since you brought that up. Do you often find not often because I know you're a little bit higher caliber Oliver in wood turning than I am. But I'll get a piece and go I don't like this and then somebody will see that and go. Oh it's the most gorgeous thing they'd ever seen the funny. You say that because Josh the gentleman I share my shop with And I were just having this discussion the other day that the things that we have turned the we personally don't like are always the first ones sell on. Yeah that doesn't surprise me at all 'cause you know we tend to be a little more critical. I think we are. We are our own worst critics. You know I have to sometimes hat out of some of the guys around that are like wrote. Why don't why don't you like it? And then I tell him why I don't like it and they're like none of that's going on you know it's because you get so wrapped up in your own piece and you forget to look at it from an outside perspective and that's why like having people around to help me do that also right or you know. I'll make a box and all that you know they'll say why do you hate that. We'll look at that joint right there. with it you know? And it's we know we see those things but we also bring a lot more to the table in that experience and go okay. Well I had trouble with that joint and of course it's GonNa stand out to me of course and you know what I also tell people. Is You know. Woodworkers don't make woodworking projects for other woodworkers you know we make woodworking projects for ourselves. Our families are gifts or for sale to customers but very rarely do other woodworkers purchase. Now when I take a piece to a width turning event I make sure that it is spot on. I make picture that it is the most spectacular thing you have ever seen. Sometimes I sell bowls to the average customer. I'm like well maybe that she wasn't exactly what I wanted. Or maybe that wasn't what I wanted but the customers not gonNA know if feels good in it holds their food. They're gonNA live now definitely. Yeah Yeah I can imagine you know putting work like you're saying putting work out there to other woodworkers you're going to be a little more careful what you bring them. Oh yeah you know I mean I I have a one of my. Ta's at the college he's in the laser class. She's a wonderful gentleman but he likes to make these funky little signs around the shop and and he has one that sits over the lathe and it's a little picture of meaty in it says only other would turner's put their fingers in your vessels and it's the truth and it's true that's very true you know 'cause your average customer's doing a pick it up. They're going to look at it. They're gonNA feel it. You know a wood. Turner picks it up the first thing they do they feel wall thickness they feel the inside and all of that surface good is a clean like what's the weight of the piece. It's just a different viewpoint. It is it is and I think you're you're you're trying to in a way you might be trying to find flaws so that you feel better about your work. Sometimes sometimes you know when when I was younger and getting started you know. I really enjoyed the feedback. I got it helped me to make my pieces. This is better. The further along in my career got is just like you said. We're it's other woodworkers who were like okay. Can I got one little thing wrong with this so that I can bring this this up and it's something that I've noticed it is it's in turning world. Witter's do that. Yeah definitely well Robert. Thank you so much for sitting down with me man. Keep doing what you're doing. You're you're producing some awesome stuff. I look forward to more videos I was watching one year videos this morning. Online with several other woodworkers that that do live stuff online and we were enjoying knowing your multi axis Video and commenting on that so just keep that up in. Thanks for sitting down with me. I really appreciate it. I will I love of what I do and you know it will keep on keeping on and I thank you very much for having me on Daniel.

"Know get over it. They're just tools it all. I don't blame the tool and Yeah it's fun. I mean if because I'm a graphic designer and so the CNC is almost the perfect tool you know. It's a crossover. So I make designs and I'm able to carve them out just like you said it's an extension of the rest of the tools rules we have in the shop and just because you can program it in Gin. Do a little bit more work for you to me. That's not cheating. That's working smarter. Yeah it is in it is now I guess the down the same line. Do you use a the lead the duplicator ever you know. I purchased the leave duplicator of three years ago. I figured that this thing was going to be awesome. I was GONNA make a ton of money off and it was going to be good. I have since found out that I am faster. Free ending spindles souls duplicator could ever date. Yeah 'cause they're they're pretty rough. I used I used to test. Woodworking tools for the industry and Was Vega's sent me one of theirs and I did a whole bunch of spindle turning with it and I can see what you're talking about. May well have been easier just to do it all by I and you know. Come up with a pattern and do that. Oh Yeah I have the Vega and just like you said it it will achieve the sheep but the surface quality is not what my customers are looking for. Takes me longer to have to come back and sand or clean up that it would just turn it myself right. And at that point if all you're doing is his roughing out with the duplicator why bother at that point roughing gouges fastest dragnet cutter down the duplicating head. That's that's true that's true. Let's see what projects do you have coming up that you're really excited about. Wow well I mean that handle Gig was pretty much my last production run for the for the year So I only have one more small handle job I have to do but I see you know the projects right. Now that I really WanNa get into are more of the wave vessels. That's really kind of what has peaked in my interest right now. Are you going to be putting out any videos on those I would like to. I think it's GonNa take me a little you little longer to kind of streamline process but at the same time This is not really my technique so I learned this. I the GO-TO demonstrations symposiums all the time. There's a gentleman. His name is John Fever and he is the one who actually came up with the. We've designed now. I've taken it in a little bit of a different direction but John already does this demonstration to show how he cuts the blank. The end does the wave. I have just a little bit different process but I am working nice now. Let's go back to this handle project it you were mentioning and am I right in remembering you said a hundred yes okay. That sounds a little mind numbing. Tell us about that. Experience of of mass producing a hundred of the same thing Basically you shut your brain often. You'll let your body do knows how to do You know after about the first dozen it just flows you. You don't even think about you know your body knows exactly the dimensions and it is kinda crazy. How will muscle memory works doing miss that you know after twenty or twenty five? I don't even do gallopers anymore. I can either to the exact diameter the exact shape that I need almost every time. No and you think of his bad I did a spindle job. A gentleman was reproducing adducing Victorian fence in he needed four hundred and fifty tickets. Turn I did four hundred fifty fence. It's in three and a half days. That's shocking that that one was a little rough man that that that would lose to me. That would lose most of what I love about what turning I have never been won that enjoyed production work. We all have to do they Man and this is also what I tell my students or my clients or customers that I meet on the road road. It's like you know if if you have job and whittard. Is Your Hobby still. Turn it into a job. You're not going to enjoy it as much. You know Y- If you sell some pieces on the side but you're having a good time that's awesome Remember the first time you decide you want to make a living in front of the leave you now have to stand in for that. Leave eight hours a day. Five to six days a week to be able to achieve riot. In if you're not willing to do that end confined some joy in that. It's really not something you want to go into any any kind of production work. I would think you know whether you're doing kitchen cabinets or you know joy boxes for that matter. You know if if one brings you joy but doing twenty-five isn't going to he might Wanna I just think about a different Vocation exactly you know and I told the guys the guys when they see me you know working at the college they see me in the shop in other like roper work really hard. Don't you like you have to do in this industry you know. You can't just expect people to fire fire you or watching these events if you are not a hard work well right. I mean it's not like people are always beating a a path to your door You know nowadays even so because the Internet has given us such access S. to a worldwide audience and a worldwide amount of woodworkers say For going to be specific you know so if I was a client looking for small piece granted sometimes shipping is the thing you have a lot of people to choose from you. Do you know and I actually have had clients who have gotten a hold of me and I have told them here is so and so in your area They they would probably be a better fit for you because of the size of the job or something like that. I am not afraid to call on my with turning buddies the eight. I've got this Gig for you if you want right and I'm sure they're very gracious about it. That's you know we're a tight tightknit group. You know I I often say that with turning world is selling circle and we all know each other we all in the same circles we know. Now there's did you degrees of separation so we all have to be there to help each other out. And that is one of the things I love about the woodworking community unity on a whole is there for the most part their willingness to show you how to do something if they're creating something and you go. Gosh how did you do that. They're not going to say in all instances. I can't tell you that. Then you know then you could do it for the most part there. There are certain small little niche areas that I have found winter the kind of feel that their techniques are a little bit more specialized sized or secretive. But for the most part now I I meet woodworkers all the time where I asked him a question and go for an hour and explain how outlay and then you know if you walk up to a fisherman and you go okay. What did you catch that on? And where did you catch it at their all. So you know yeah. I met that guy before he I am that guy. See that's how I am with my snowboard short stashes where people see me. Come out woods covered in snow and I'm like none of you don't WanNa back now. There's there's nothing back there for you. Yeah exactly so oh you SNOWBOARD I. That sounds exciting. Never never been one to slide down a mountain. No I I started snowboard. The thirteen years old. I moved out West here when I was twenty two and I've now been out here for pushing twenty five years. Here's this season is my thirty fourth season on a snowboard. Well it's dedication man. If you enjoy it. Don't stop up until you can't do it anymore. I mean that's my outlet. It has been forever. You know I take the family up with me. We enjoy the outdoors. We go slider out on some snow. We have some hot chocolate and it's wonderful day. Dad Definitely We we tend to stay inside We do a lot of crafts and building and we play video games in my house. But you know I get out there. I just bought a boat. I go out fishing a lot. And you know that's my outdoor stuff is is that in hiking Your winters are a little different than I. Ours also you guys have more that Greyish kind of you know.

"For me The piece that I am the most proud of is It came from the mountains. It's my piece. That was accepted into the permanent collection of the museum in Denver. What did tell me about it? What does it look like So it is a multi axis hollow hollow vessel It has nine different openings on it. It was turned on thirteen different axes. It was then sandblasted for texture in finished. I would say it's probably one of pieces. Did has taken me the longest. Just imagine with all those different accesses and axes. I guess I should say. Is that in your gallery on your website site. I believe that it is on the website. Or you can if you go onto the Kirkland Museum webs it's on their site also okay I I would turn object that they have accepted into their permanent. And if you guys listening go to The episode page on www dot its dot com. I'll make links over there so you guys can take a look One of the hard things about doing an audio podcast is when craftsperson is describing their work. It's like okay. What does that really look like? So I try to put some pictures and stuff like kicked out on the website and or at least link over the years so people can look at these things. Yeah and if anybody has any questions you know you can always find me on all oh social media outlets facebook. INSTAGRAM linked in Amman. All and we'll have links to all those on the episode page. Now you just have you. You just started. I think you were telling me just started getting into doing a lot of youtube stuff. I have so You know like a lot of other people I have a love eight relationship with you to There is some really good information on there and there are some really that information Asian on there and I had some of my students. College asked me if I could record. Some of my project demonstrations demonstration's from college for that so I agreed to it and then at the same time I figured you know. This is a good way for me to help the wood turning community as a whole in knowing the Safeway to use of would in the proper direction of cut and things like that so I am. I'm going to be expanding my youtube. Yeah a lot of us you know. We jump on Youtube If we're trying to learn something or look at other ways of doing things but there literally is no vetting process to be able to eat. You know there's no qualifications to be able to post a youtube video and I always encourage everybody to look at these with a grain of salt. You know. Get a feeling for it if you don't think they're doing things that are safe. Don't don't copy. Happy M I you know it. There's nothing stopping somebody from posting a video. That's you know all those mistakes like you were talking about earlier. No no there. Isn't you know and the other thing is you have to remember that. There's a difference between you know some of the satire. It's on there in an educational in one of my favorites was crazy Canadian. He made the funniest woodworking and would turning videos for can't take him seriously like none one of what he was doing on his show was the proper way to do it and he would even tell you that he's like this is strictly for fun. Don't try this at all right. And hopefully people caught that and didn't just keep watching it and learning from it does always a couple that will try so Robert Woodson. Your lay right now. Wow I'm still the next one. It's I'm Elliott. Well okay so I just finished a production run of one. One hundred locust handles for some Tibetan prayer bowls the gentleman order so I just finished that run and then next up I have a a spotted maple vessel in which I am linked to do a new design in my wave Nestle series and by wave vessels. That's stuff with a live edges us of the waited vessels in the ones that I've starting to do right. I've been up cutting the blank including the veneer inside of it so that it has curved we've affect. Okay Okay Yeah I think I saw pictures of some of that stuff that style. So that's Kinda my new thing that I've been I've been working on Like I said I kind of have a short attention span at times in and when I see something that really does catch my eye will run with it until I find something different and right now I'm kind of all about the wave vessels. Nice Nice now are used detour. It all this time of year different shows. You have a schedule up anywhere if somebody he wants to meet you in person and see you do some of this The demonstration work is our place that they can find you us generally as of November one on and I come off the road only because of my family the holidays you know the end of the semester at the college things start to get a little crunch for me this this time this semester. So I won't be back out on the road again until January and I do believe that my first our demonstration I will have will be the at. The Tennessee would turning symposium that third weekend in January and that's January twenty twenty just in case. Somebody's listening to this a a few years from now and would get confused so these podcasts are kind of timeless so anytime we reference date. I try to be as exact as I can. Yeah No January twenty twenty Outta be that third we get Nice Nice How many galleries do you do? You have pieces in just the two right now just to. Are they local yes. They're both in Denver Nice. I have been to Denver a wonderful city. It's been changing Geno lot here the last few years we had a lot of people showing up. Yeah I mean. The last time I was there was probably in the eighties. So it's it's been probably the nineties so it's been quite some time. Oh it's cleaned up a lot now since a nice. No the only memory where I big memory I have a denver. Ver- is flying out from the airport. And you know the plane coming up over the mountains and then dropping like two hundred feet. That does happen when you go over the kind definitely so I kind of blame Denver for my fear of frying these days. You're not the only one I've heard definitely definitely. Oh let's see what are some classic would Turner Questions Nations got anything what we're Turner Classic Would Turner Questions. Do you think this tool needs to be sharpened. Spend no because if you ask me you already know the answer to that question exactly. What's another good one? Do you think I've gone. Who Do you think I've gone through the bottom of this when you can see light? Yeah let's let's talk about the sharpening thing. It's one of the biggest parts of wood. Turning isn't it was it's one of the biggest parts of woodwork. True metal wood working of any kind becomes very hard. You could just pay someone to sharpen your tools. Can't will yeah. I have a gentleman who they do that they drafted with every two weeks in sharp and they pick them. I'm up in the APP is you can be and then I see again in two weeks. He wound that's a nice arrangement. I guess you know okay. This is also y you know things. Like carbide strippers. At becomes popular is capable. The believe the sharpening his heart which it really isn't isn't it just takes practice anything else but they believe if they can cut this portion out they will have more time at the League and yes. They will the thing that they need to remember. Is that a carbide straight for. Gouge will give you the same exact shape the only difference is in the surface quad. All right it's not as smooth. Yeah definitely and that's why I tell people I'm like either way that you want to achieve. This is fine. I am not traditionalist. I am not here to tell you. You know if you don't use gouges you're not a true would turner. I believe that is you. Know in our tae-ik Attitude Blake. You should never feel that way You know me personally when I follow on small vessels I love Clears it out super fast. I get the job. Don when I'm doing shaping on the outside it's the last tool I wanNA grab. I don't want to have a lot of tear out or have you know something compromised whereas with a Gal that nicer right and they do you know scrapers sharpen well and high speed steel you do. It cuts down the sanding and in all of that Repair work. It does mean standing as a necessary evil of all turning but what I tell is my job is to teach you how to make cut clean enough that you could start standing at one eighty instead of having to go search around and find out exactly. Yeah Yeah we all have some of that eighty grid hidden away. I mean I have it. It's there every once in a while. I have to bring it out but I try hard not to definitely definitely now. We talked about a little bit earlier when I said Said you know when I talked to other woodworkers on woodworking disciplines that they would like to try that hadn't in wood turning came up. What's a discipline that you haven't done yet that you would really like to try? I have never CNC. I get to watch them all the time. And I know there's a huge debate in woodworking woodworking the CNC isn't real woodworking but the things that I seen creative wise that people can make with a CNC. It just blows my mind. Sometimes you know I do struggle with technology. So that's also kind of why I was like a little. Yeah you know my my answer to that I own a CNC machine and when somebody says all that's cheating. And I go her really. I said does it hurt when you pounding nails with your hand. CNC machine is a tool. Now my qualification to that if you're downloading somebody else's plans and just pretty pretty much printing out. Whatever piece of woodworking? Okay I could see maybe cheating Whatever but it's just a tool it is it's just a tool like any other one of the things that I always go back to? This gets brought up out of a motor on your live because unless you're using a treadle as with a hooked tool tool we're all kinds of cheating. Yeah and I think it's just you know I and the the prevalence of CNC's the you know the lower and lower cost pieces. It's making more affordable even for hobbyists as well as a lot of the lasers that are out there and I'm out shopping for laser right now.

"roper" Discussed on It's Wood - A show about all things woodworking

"Good to meet you and thank you. Welcome to. Its would image for having me Daniel. I'm very excited to be here now. I've spent a few days looking at some of the videos and things that you produce looking through your portfolio man. You make some beautiful stuff. Thank you very much you know when you love what you do does yeah it does now. Why don't we go way back? When did you first get your hands on wood? And what turned you on about it. I I started working with the medium of wood when I was fouled thirteen or fourteen years old night grandfather was a carpenter her and he really wanted his grandkids to be able to work with their hands. I unfortunately the only one of the grandkids kids that actually went into woodworking as a profession or career. So have you been doing it fairly steady since then yes pretty much since I graduated high school. All I'd have done has been some form of woodworking I started started off in construction then. Went to doing a remodel work with my uncle After that I moved out West I started aren't installing hardwood floors and then about fourteen years ago. I found the program on fine woodworking program at Red Rocks Community College College and that was the first time I stood in front of Elise. And that has been McGowan fall. Well I it's one of my favorite tools to be sure. Do you remember the first thing that you turned. The first thing that I ever turned was in honey dipper Nice. Good form. Nice Forum knows horrible that it would even in the jar of you know. At the time I was still very nervous. If I remember correctly it was two inches in diameter eight inches long and I was so proud of it in the first time I looked at go this is never gonna fit in a jar. And since then I have developed more of an is or shaping proportion. Now what do you think think is it that caught your eye and your passion and your love for woods turning instant gratification. You know I hear that allot. It's the one thing about the lay of those of us who have some. Add or focusing issues. We have a tendency to lean towards turning towards the leave A. I always describe it anytime I talk about it as would pottery. It's really funny. You say that because I took a pottery class at the college after I had learned would turn it in the first vessel. I turned and it didn't come out that well but it was really nice. It just Klay Mashed it back out and I started again and the teacher was like you've really good. I I for shapes and easier than turning and it's not nearly as dangerous because you could start over without destroying your supplies there. Oh yeah she was kind of upset the first vessel I polled. You know doing that. I had like ten installed vessel ahead really Nice quarter inch wall. She was like how did you do that. It is easy like I could just rebuild this up as opposed to own a two way. Now what am I gonNA do. I'm sure as a teacher. She felt. Okay what what am I gonNA offer this student. Do you know and I think she was a little bit. 'cause you know people who just didn't understand the sheeps Serbia and to me. It doesn't matter what medium I'm using the sheeps are all saying right right. So tell me a little bit about your approach to design and when you sit down and you're going to create a new piece Do you draw sketches. Do you get on the computer. Do you just go with what's in in your mind. How do you approach? That I'm more of a sketchbook kind of artists I'm not really a not really good at drying but I can get the idea from my head onto the paper a once. I do that. It becomes much easier on the leave because half half of the problems I work on paper or even get it onto the machine. Yeah I can see that I kinda go between both. Sometimes I'll just check up a piece of wood and go okay. Would what is it you want to be. You know that sounds silly. But it's it's almost cathartic in a way of just you know taking that journey and figuring out what what is inside this piece of wood and it can be an and one of the things that I always tell. My students is unlike if would turning stuff thing. You're doing for enjoyment or or or therapies. Something like that then. There is no need to have a plan. You are going out there to have a good time to forget about you know some of your troubles troubles in something like that but you know being a person who does this for a living. I need to be able to sketch these pieces out. Especially especially if I'm doing a production run or something like that like I need to have my plan so that I'm not just cutting into well. That's true that's true. I main a lot of times when I go out there and do that the way I described it is for relaxation or therapy or just I WANNA be out in my shop now granted. I have very few customers coming to me and going make me something. And that's the end of the conversation now that that's usually I want something. That kind of looks looks like this or has these features and so yeah you you do have to make a plan at that point. Do you know and with some of the newer wave leave. That's doing You kinda have to have a plan you have to know how much material in my losing. Every time I caught with the dance on a much material during lose that Kurth cut and how am I going to glue these veneers in in the order that I want them to be. You know. Also there's a little bit of planning to ask you now. Do you do Strict commissions or do you is it all speculative you build something and and then offered up for sale. I am about fifty fifty. Yeah well I mean the commission. It is always nice because I know I'm getting paid for it. But you know I really like to create art pieces. I liked to have you know things that I can put into a gallery and you know out people enjoying sometimes they settle in and sometimes they don't. It's just more of a crap. Shoot you know in dealing with the galleries. Yeah Yeah it is So I met you. I believe last year in Portland here at the was it. I W I I W I can't ever W at a that's that's right and you were in the Robert Sorby booth booth was that correct user are one of the North American reps robbers orioles. Yeah we sat there and talked about how you doing this interview but we also talked a lot about the tools and things like that. Now I have some of their tools. I Gosh which I have a huge variety of tools. Like probably most of us Do Do you probably not even fair to ask you if you really is. Are Those the tools that you use. Mostly I like many other would turner's have quite an array of tools It depends on really what's put the pieces that make you know how easy would tools in Irvy's tools Thompson tools tools You know it just kinda depends on what is going to give me the best surface quality on a piece of work. Yeah it does seem kind kind of silly in a way to limit yourself to brand loyalty that you know and I I have easy would tools love those and I have some sorby tools and some fraydon in all kinds of different stuff and it really does depending on what kind of a cut you're making so what What what level live students do you tend to teach or these all brand new would turner's are they experienced over at the college? I teach all all three levels I do into do introduction intermediate and advanced turning. I personally teach more of the introduction inside Mostly because I have a really good style of working with newer Woodson's you you know you have to have a lot of patients you have to be able to repeat the same answer questions over and over again in some instructors or some people ah the arts now. I talked to a lot of woodworkers that you know sometimes I'll ask them. You know what woodworking discipline that you don't don't do that you would love to learn and would turning comes up a lot and for anybody like that. That's out there listening. What would you suggest The best way to get started starting in that the best way to get started would turning is to go to one of your local club meetings. you will the able to meet other Turner's they will be able to guide you in both the equipment the tools you know the wood and things he's like that that you will meet One of my biggest struggles as an introduction teacher is when I get that student who's like taught me. I've been doing this for ten years in. There's very little that you're going to be able to show me. And then we get into class and they start to realize that they've been doing things you know the wrong way in a in a dangerous way and that's one of the things that's difficult. I've taught bunch of different subjects and trying to teach. Someone's mistakes are always hard. I believe it's harder to teach mistakes than it is to take a fresh student and teach them the right way to do. Yeah it is it. It is in an to a lot to proceed with those mistakes. They're just GONNA make other mistakes in it it. It's tough to unlearn. And what. I always tell my guys all my students into that. Think about the introduction class as the foundation to your hope foundation to your home isn't solid and everything going all the way up. Is it GONNA be straightened solid but if I can give you the good foundation to get started than you can take this in so many different lives down. Yeah so roper. Tell about the piece that you created that. You're the most proud of let's hear about that. That's it's kind of an easy question.

A New Century Series for the Air Force?

"Jen do s you the managing editor for defense and space. I'm here with Pentagon editor Lee Hudson and defense editor Steve Trimble and we are coming off the Air Force Association's Association's Annual Air and Space Conference Twenty Nineteen while they're Lee and Steve interviewed the Air Force's acquisition position chief will roper so they had a very interesting conversation to admits from that which we will share with you you today on this podcast Steve. Can you set up some of your conversation regarding the Air Force's future Lider the program right okay so the important thing to start off with is that Dr Roper unveiled or is revealed at the at the vent this week his his concept for the digital century series within the next generation air dominance program and to impact all of that next generation Schnur dominance is basically what the Air Force started working on in two thousand sixteen looking at what would replace the F twenty two after twenty thirty has gone through several evolutions over time where it started out as a family of systems anchored by like get next generation fighter a sixth generation fighter something that was kind of similar in in in sort of conceptual approach to an F. twenty two but applied to what it would look like in twenty thirty two something that Roper wh is promoting you know especially over the past year is this this century series model when he discusses that and you're going to hear that a bit on this clip from our interview our exclusive interview that Lee and Lien I had with is a reference to this progression of fighters that emerged in the nineteen fifty s starting with the F. One hundred proceeding through the to the a four point. Oh five and finally the six all were produced within probably four or five years you know going through a design development and production process I think they were all produced essentially hundreds of aircraft some more than others and with with sort of a checkered in you know history in terms of of success which we touch on in the interview but you know we really what you're going to hear. Row Dr Roper talking about is his vision for digital for for setting up a digital century series that is focused based on creating digital models engineering models and and actually a whole new aircraft production system that is is really quite different than how the space industry is set up to work today so we can hear a bit of that in this clip. That'll queue up right now now so yes. There are a lot of things from history that we could look at at the F. One seventeen is it's a great example of an airplane that was built rapid way to meet an immediate need in a lot we can learn from it and we could easily call aw what we're trying to achieve within gather digital f. one seventeen nearly downside of that as a single airplane move under it is interesting about this series period which is not the but thorough multiple vendors were multiple types of aircraft that that were designed Nick for production by by all pilots not just an exceptional vile sued trying to design a baseline respond pilot that can be formed by everyone clearly not all aircraft successful debate series was actually successful endeavor we don't reference to let's say we want to return to that in terms of results more than curious returning where we need multiple multiple types of aircraft currently no rapidly that are built with a mindset that production maybe necessary and that they'll need to the in flown joining combat not just billed as an experimental system. I don't think that's that's why adding digital to the front should is not something different digital engineering open systems modular architectures and then finally digital engineering do creative for Maradona's the building systems and it brings in to the aviation world what has existed in the automotive for years Toyota and many other Ottoman and auto manufacturers at focused on creating a better car building process and then are now going cars with it. We want to do the same thing with aircraft you want to build a better aircraft process and build the aircraft and we if we do that. We'll see a lot of the same benefits. The automotive industry is saying that will get designed shops design companies that focus making aircraft have noticed actually manufacture them. I'm and mass beyond the moldable we think we'll be able to do small batches without paying a premium for the design and the learning curve round to to get to a production aircraft that has all the kinks out of it and finally be able to do modernisation very rapidly offered action and the production line as a hot micro small teams came with a hard tooling without large facilities back to the design boutique in aviation view that as being very similar to the nineteen forties or small teams with great design principles to build an aircraft and now all these digital tools even the aircraft so complicated complex the digital digital tools the Holy Trinity referenced Irons All of that flag so we can get back that earlier era on and I've seen enough examples from industry three to prove to need this is a bet worth making a risk taking so now in GATT and provides an opportunity security so the difference between and Gab before versus now is not the aspiration to build aircraft technologies that might be useful to put on it. It's building a better aircraft building process and the trying to realize the benefits instead it with gifts and among those small quantities that can spiral rapidly integration into the design because of the open open architecture and then finally lowering the sustainment of cost is a digital tools also allow you to attack a life cycle cost of the

"roper" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"A Bloomberg interactive Roper studio with a great column she has out as it was it today yes yes I found out today really cool it's about apple we saw apple making announcement earlier this week that their big event that they're getting into these streaming business with apple TV plus for four ninety nine a month and terror is a good question which I think is on a lot of investors minds is this apple need to buy a studio to kind of provide content for this so. what are you hearing and what what your thoughts on that issue so I think there's been a lot of speculation since the beginning of the year you know will they or won't they buy a Hollywood studio like a Sony and MGM something like that lions gate because all these companies are getting heavy into the video streaming business but apple of course has to buy all that content from the outside and it's very expensive the event on Tuesday though when apple unveiled more of the details of apple TV plus kind of signal to me that maybe they're not trying to necessarily compete directly with Netflix and Disney plus maybe this app is meant to be more of a software that they bundle with their hardware to drive more hardware sales because of course I phone sales are down tremendously and you know people aren't replacing their devices as often now so maybe they throw in these as a way to get more people in Tyson's the apple brand for example they're giving the service apple TV plus away for free for a year for anyone who buys a new iPhone iPad mac apple TV console so I think they're really looking to this as sort of a loss leader to drive sales of another business as opposed to betting really began streaming yeah but then how big of an incentive does it have to be at a time when you can get really good content and a lot of places in other words what's where's the bar for apple with that they they've got a hurdle to actually use it as sort of a carriage I think they have to look at how many people sign up for the service if it if it becomes massively successful some analysts think they're gonna reach a hundred million subscribers within five years which would put them head of Disney pluses productions and pretty close the Netflix so if they're really successful maybe they decide Hey this is a good business for us and in that case we're spending all this money maybe we should just own a studio out right there's definitely plenty of willing sellers out there and much better price tags and there were and in past years a lot of the stocks are down so I think that could maybe change Tim cook's mind but based on what they were saying on Tuesday I kind of told me they're not looking to themselves as the next Netflix and Tim cook himself on stage didn't say. you know they are five dollars month service is much cheaper than all these other services which it is and study side you can get this for the same price of renting a single movie on demand which I think tells you his thinking on this it's interesting because one of the big issues for apple and its stock is to continue to grow its services business and there's some some people in the market place like Bloomberg intelligence John baller who thinks that video needs to actually be a part of that and without video they might not be able to continue to grow that what your thoughts there so I think it's interesting I don't cover apple directly but when I look at it I think of the fact that apple TV plus sounds like it's gonna be geared more toward apple devices so if you have a PlayStation console which is how I stream TV for example am I gonna be able to access apple TV plus it doesn't sound like at least from the get go so that tells me that they're keeping this and house and doing it to drive these hardware sales and using software as a way to boost that business at a time when that business is really facing slow growth. I have to wonder where the partnership potential is for apple with Netflix I mean let's talk about the idea that perhaps rather than being rivals the goal here is for apple to work with them and provide the best platform and software to stream this could that be part of the push to and they don't to cannibalize from that potential for the business it makes me wonder then why is apple spending I think it's three hundred million dollars on these first two seasons of the morning show with Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon I mean these are huge costly bat date that shows that we've seen the trailers for these for the content it's going to be on this app when it launches November first looks really good but it's not enough for five dollars a month I mean Disney and Netflix have these tremendous libraries where you can just kind of stream all day and you know apples apple TV plus on day one is just gonna have these nine series that they just bought so it to me I'm I'm not really sure it's at the strategies little bit vague right now it could be that apple really doesn't know what they want to do with that yeah I could be there just want to see what it looks like over the next few months with the landscape ends up being it looks like eighteen T. in Warner media already tripping over themselves with their strategy so they could be just saying you know we're gonna tip toe into it and see what happens and then maybe that leads them to do a massive deal and get back in this in a big way or maybe they start to retreat and say you know what we're a hardware company thank you so much for this it's a great column on the terminal you can see on Bloomberg dot com really talking about apple and what they need to do in a string of business do they need to go out and buy a studio and you can read more on this and other stories from Bloomberg opinion at Bloomberg dot com slash opinion and on the terminal by taking P. I. N. go so he's coming up in just a couple of minutes we have I Sam a cast from Bloomberg television Rick Perry the US energy department secretary and five P. bit the role hope I'm pronouncing that correctly executive director of the international agency energy agency I speak with Bloomberg's anchor Alex deal talking about energy so we'll have that just a couple moments but that to be very sing given kind of the movements we seen in energy prices well it'll. interesting especially in light of OPEC coming out and saying that the glut is going to persist oil prices coming even lower and then you have you Ron potentially some sort of agreement with the U. S. in the IT week of John Paul's exit really interesting to see how in this framework the US is looking at energy policy especially at a time when there's not as much focus on renewable energies and and and sources exactly and and and what's you know really changes as we noted in the past really over the last ten years has been in terms of the global crude market is the U. S. shale business that's been that creasing supply making the U. S. much less that dependent upon your oil from outside the U. S. and we've become a huge exporter of crude ourselves the US has with the shale looking at WTI crude right here fifty four dollars ninety nine cents down eleven cents per barrel today so kind of it's been hanging this trading range for awhile and I think people trying to get a sense of the you know supply and demand and really focusing on the demand side because if if this is if you're rolling into a global recession then obviously that has impact on all commodities including oil with the U. S. at one Sir prevailing idea that it's been persistent over the past few years the US has taken a real Tom and position when it comes to oil production away that has in the past and is the elephant in the room especially as OPEC comes together comes production agreements the US is sort of the the the big production house it's not included and how that works and we're gonna be hearing more I'm sure about that from Rick Perry U. S. energy department secretary and fight T. B. roll executive director of the international energy agency who is speaking with Bloomberg's own television anchor Alex Steele let's send it over to her the church with very as well as the executive director of the I AEA he is fighting bill and they're both with us from Washington welcome gentle and good to have you first let's start with the announcement today secretary Perry hundred ten million dollars for research having to do with call how we can use cold better more efficiently do let. the environment it's R. N. D. we have a decline right now in the capacity of coal plants because our country when he was come into effect so it might deter or delay that reduction in capacity. well the carbon capture utilization storage concept is the been around for a while we're starting to see substantial more interest in it particularly in which some of our partners in the in the Middle East for instance who would like to be able to have a an alternative to some of the fuel that they've used in the past so being able to use coal in a clean way when you think about this technology going into China which by the way their missions are like four hundred ex four hundred ex is what the emissions and John I've been over the last few years as we seen the United States lowering our missions by I wanna say somewhere close to twenty five to thirty percent in a in the energy sector so that this has some really great news for the world in the climate when it comes to being able to to get this technology to its mature level getting it spread out across both China India in those places still use of central Moscow secretary if the goal is to have cleaner emissions is this most cost effective way of doing it are there other alternatives that should be more cost effective for example renewables. yeah will tell you that the most cost effective way is doing life extensions on our nuclear plants that that is not only the the cheapest way to deliver energy it's also the best for the climate out there so was a real let's turn you on that subject is that the best.

"They they serve as glaciers plumbing. But mapping these icy labyrinths could be the secret to exploring icy worlds. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future Muan are places where water has punched through thousands of feet of ice to form a waterfall through a glacier serving as the plumbing inside the IC structure, these Mulanje carry Meltwater throughout the ice and control how fast the glacier moves. Now. Researchers from Nasr's Jet Propulsion lab are using what they know about the miniaturization of electronics for cubesats to create robotic probes that can map these dangerous water passages the team traveled to the Matt anew glacier in Alaska to test. Their technology cameras and laser scans were used to create three d maps of the glacier caves, which will be correlated to surface features using satellite images. Focus. On developing the right technology for the job. These robotic spelunker 's could help scientists find hidden passageways just beneath the surface exploring glaciers on earth today or getting below the surface of icy moons like you'll Roper and Enceladus in the future for innovation.

Could We Build A Real Gundam?

"Hello earth. Actually. Hello universe. Yeah. We are here to tell you that. In addition to Tuesdays and Thursdays when you can get your regular stuff. You should know episodes. Just as you always have the last ten thousand years await tenure seniors. We're now adding a whole new episode of a spin off show. That's really the same show. It's just a shorter episode. It's called short stuff. Yeah. We said, hey, sometimes we have topics that maybe aren't robust enough to fill out a full forty five minutes stuff. You shouldn't episode though. We don't want to shortchange these topics these people, and so let's just make them short. Get over here. Short stuff and Trump in our feet, right? Exactly. It's kind of like the Roper to our three's company. Yeah. Or it's kinda like after mash to mash exactly, although it's like neither one of those. We're regular links. This is shorter everybody. Yep. So you can go to apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Or just look for it in your feet every Wednesday from your friends. Josh chuck. Jerry at stuff, you should know shorter is sometimes better. Welcome to bring stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff on Lauren vocal bomb. And if science fiction has taught us anything it's that giant piloted robotic humanoids will eventually be essential to the protection of everything we hold dear invading Taiji from another dimension, sending the acres rubies from planet, doomed better assemble voltron, and as James Cameron's aliens, toughtested nine hundred eighty six even a non-combat next suit can make all the difference against an extraterrestrial threat. Another influential example is our x seventy eight dash to Gundem the titular piloted giant robot entered the world in nineteen seventy nine as part of Yoshiyuki Tomino mobile suit Gundem franchise, which remains popular today. But could we build our own Gundem's? The simple answer is. Yes. In fact, scientists have been tackling various aspects of the technology since at least the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries during that time both Russian and American inventors explored the possibility of mechanically enhanced excess skeletons to eight humans in various. Physical movements since that time we've continued to see X skeleton advancements aimed at injury rehabilitation space travel industrial labor, and yes, even military combat and okay power armor is nice and all, but it's hardly a giant robot that stomps around and punches monsters in the face. What about true towering meccas? Well, the answer here is also a yes. Within the field of robotics. We've seen tremendous achievements in the creation of remote control autonomous and semi autonomous machines today. Military drones haunt the skies over various global combat zones and space exploration probes have delivered wheeled Rovers to other worlds, we've even given our wheeled robots arms for tasks from bomb dispersal to Martian soil, sampling and deep sea exploration. But none of these mechanical minions boasts legs, even the humanoid robot developed by Nasr's Lyndon, B Johnson space center didn't acquire climbing legs until its second iteration for proper Gundem's. One day walked the planet will need proper robot legs and this to his featured into the work of various robotics programs. The most famous of these is Boston dynamics military funded Walker programs such as big dog and cheetah and not just because they inspired the killer robots in the black mirror episode metalhead because while aerial and nautical robots can get by just fine without a leg to stand on terrestrial, robots are a different matter. A wheels are great on the road and unobstructed landscapes but legs provide the most versatility for diverse. Environments true. We like structures only rarely occur in biology such as the bacterial Jehlum a structure found in such species as the bacterium e coli legs on the other hand are natural selections primary solution to terrestrial transportation. So it makes sense to copy evolution in this regard. And biomedical engineers have looked to all manner of leg arrangements for inspiration from humans to millipedes. But here's the catch led to me. Movement requires a great deal of programming complexity and power it made feel easy for most of us. But our minds and bodies are highly evolved for the task even fully piloted Gunda say one where it's movements are mapped on those of the pilot would require a tremendous amount of biometric engineering and semi autonomous units would require the dexterity and spatial awareness to avoid the pitfalls of for example, the ED two oh nine in RoboCop which stomped around on two feet, but was incapable of navigating stairs. But the mecca dream is strong while various robotics companies continue to develop the necessary technology. Fi fans also go at it alone. Functional mecca suits have strolled the Playa at burning man and paraded at various conventions and Japanese engineer Masaaki Nagumo built a working life size model of a gun Gundem in two thousand eighteen the mecca dubbed L W Mona no FU stands twenty eight feet tall. That's about eight point five meters and weighs seven point seven tons or about. Seven metric tons. It's too. Big to leave the factory space that it calls home. But Ngubane rinse it and other meccas out for a little under a thousand bucks an hour. It's not protecting the world from alien attacks. But it's quite a hit for kids birthday parties. Though, one note here if alliens or giant monsters do attack well meccas might not be the best option. Anyway, as was pointed out in the magazine, popular mechanics, the acres from the Pacific rim films are entirely outclassed by existing aerial bombers and attack helicopters.
