Why Do Balloons Stick To Our Hair?
"Why do balloons stick to our hair? Brain stuff is Christian Sagar here when you were a kid, did you ever rub a balloon really fast against your hair to make it stick what about as an adult well, after many years of speculation Case Western Reserve University scientists have pinpointed exactly why this party trick happens. We've known forever that when two objects are rubbed against each other, there's a build up of an electrical charge called static electricity or tribe electric charging. If the two objects have opposite charges positive and negative, they'll stick together but some objects appear to charge more or stick more closely together than others like the balloon on your hair now wise that according. To a new study published in the Journal Physical Review Materials. The crux of the phenomenon lies in how strained the balloon material is for the purpose of this study, the scientists stretched a film of Polly tetrafluoroethane the lean let's call it p. t. f. e. for now that's one of the brand names. For Teflon, they took that and they rubbed it against a film of unstrained unstretched PTSD and they found that even though the materials were chemically identical, they generated charge transfer in one direction as if they had two different chemical compositions, the stretched or strange sheet carried the positive charge. Well, the unstrained sheet carried a negative charge. The more strained the material was the more likely. It was to experience systematic charge transfer. This is because the micro structure of the material was altered when strain leading to tiny holes and cracks. These imperfections allowed the rubbing induced friction to facilitate charge transfer leading to static electricity in a press release. Co Author Dan Lacks explained that they think the void regions in the fibers are tiny cell fibers. They think that those were strained when the polymer had different bonding and thus a charge that was different. The researchers also examined the phenomenon using packing peanuts which just love to stick to people's arms. In fact, polystyrene peanuts and plastic bags are currently being closely examined to give us a better understanding of static. Electricity Ideally, scientists will nail it down. So precisely that they will be able to control it, helping to prevent tribe electric explosions such as explosions of coal dust in mines and develop more effective products. For example, pesticides that will stick better to plants or paints that will stick better to cars. It may not seem that dangerous but in fact, static electricity can ignite fuel vapors at the gas pump causing fire to avoid such a catastrophe try not to get back in the car after you start the fueling process because sliding across the seat generates static electricity. If you must re enter your vehicle, be sure to ground yourself I when you get back out by touching the metal part of your car door.

Not in good condition. And you said Amy, bring that up. During the segment, cause you have an answer to make us feel okay when it came to his process where he does the Teflon coating. If you spill something on it, it'll bead right off and we also send it with a white that they can use to wipe something if it happens to stay on it very easy to do, and also with the Cover that he puts on the bottom. Not only does it protect it, so it stays looking beautiful. It also helps add when they walk, but again to go back to the X factor. We sterilized issues, the radiation.

"Across the board and one of them. Peter Theo who's been with him for a long time is an influential voice in his ear. Emily what's your take though in terms of do think there's he's going to be a shift in terms of FACEBOOK's policy obviously we've seen what twitter has done We've seen what Google has done. Do you think that there's going to be real movement. I do. I think that there are are likely going to be changes. We reported that the other week at least when it comes to political ads and I book has said. They're looking for possible changes. I don't think they're going to ban them altogether. Gather that would be surprising. And I also think what I've heard from reporting as they're taking their time to figure out the best approach we know one area they're looking at is targeting and how specific assist you can target. That's something we're both twitter and Google may changes as well and in terms of you know what Dylan mentioned before about Tension and changes in in terms of what Peter thinks versus others on the board. I think what's important about this right now is yes. Peter has been an advisor mark for quite some time I'm he's there have been different invoices on the board for quite some time but politics are front and Center for facebook in a way that they have never been before and it's not just political ads. There are a lot of issues here with privacy security transparency and so we're really at this cross section where the board we know is disagreeing and senior officials are disagreeing being on a number of issues related to politics on Beck in Washington. How is this how these issues play in terms of how you think? Political local leaders and regulators look at facebook given that they're the target of an investigation. That's ongoing yeah. I think that the facebook platform is incredibly credibly. Important both to the candidates and to president trump himself. I mean even though facebook has said that political advertising is negligible to their bottom line. We were just looking at some data that showed that president trump has spent over two million dollars on impeachment ads on facebook alone just sense impeachment. Impeachment inquiry was announced so this is a really important way for them to reach an energize their voters. And I think that you have to wrestle the panel. Let's have an honest conversation at least in my view if they were if facebook were to shut down the advertising not just the president but political advertising across the board you. You would have an outcry. And how that outcry manifest itself and I'd ask this of Emily and Dylan in terms of regulators ratcheting up whatever you think is going on in these investigations right right now. Wouldn't you imagine it gets worse. And don't you think that plays into thinking in terms of what they are going to do one way or the other they're already doing the investigations right. There already already investigating facebook over antitrust concerns Making delleri Hume said. I think it was last week that he wants to wrap up the DOJ's investigation by the end of next year. I sometime next year so these are already moving at a rather rapid mindy outcome changes based on what they do you already know how president trump feels about healthy suck. He's made very clear. I don't know that additional changes would ratchet up the pressure even more. It is already clear that this administration has a spotlight on these this company. You agree with that. They're they're investigating. I don't I respectfully disagree. I think that I think that making changes to the AD policy would increase crease. The regulatory pressure because all of a sudden you would have a lot of lawmakers asking why facebook should be making decisions about what people can and cannot say in political medical ads again. I would encourage people to go back to the decision. That twitter chief Jack Dorsey made he came out and said this and he was celebrated for twenty four hours for for putting a blanket ban on political gladly -tising when he actually implemented the policy several days later. That isn't actually what it looked like. Because it was too hard it was to murky. Twitter was exerting too much influence on the political process and the ultimate effect on Republicans but rather on Democrats on small groups and the ability of that policy to help entrenched towers. I think all of those complexities became very clear to people so no. I don't think you can institute a blanket ban on political advertising and I I don't think lawmakers would be particularly pleased with Mark Zuckerberg dictating What political candidates can and can't say in political advertising emily final or do do you agree with Dylan but I do want to point out that there's a difference between banning ads altogether which is more or less what twitter did when it comes to political title ads versus potential changes at facebook? That might be tweaking. What is or isn't allowed such as changes targeting whether or not they require citations for fact checking like cable companies do cable networks so I think right now we definitely want to wait and see? We know there's divisions we know there's disagreement with the senior in your levels and this isn't just on politics political ads. This is on a whole bunch of matters. So I think it's a wait-and-see moment for sure. Okay Emily Louis and Dylan on the West Coast. Thank you and you on in Washington. Thank you as well. That's Unsworth Todd. It's going to be hard to kill Tesla flat out. Kelly right somebody is going to want. Teflon Tesla how imply Elon. Musk keeps bouncing back. And whether that trend continues in the decade ahead we'll be right back. This is what up an Andrew. Good morning the squawk box right here on CNBC android Zorkin along with becky. Quick and Joe Kernan it has been quite a year for Tesla Elon. Musk has had battles with the SEC. He's unveiled two new car. Models and the company's most recent earnings report actually sent the stock soaring after reporting surprise profits since hitting the lows back in June that stock is up nearly seventy percent joining us right now with a review of Tesla's teflon year CNBC and Vanity Fair contributor. Bethany McLean also Colin Rush. Who is managing director and senior research? Analyst analyst at Oppenheimer going to start with you first call just because you've got an outperform rating on the stock still up seventy percent from its lows. You think they've made it through the most difficult days we do think they have the production issues that the kind of forced it upon themselves were unnecessary and I think they're actually hitting hitting their stride in terms of manufacturing costs and driving those costs lower so hearing about the potential price reduction in China in our view is endemic of their ability to drive costs. Cost out of the the production process and we think they're going to pass that That profit onto consumers Bethany. The big question is look. He had a surprise earnings. beat a better much better numbers than had been anticipating can follow that up in the next quarter I guess has he bought himself more time or is he setting standard that. He's not gonNA be able to meet well he for sure he thought himself off more time. Which is what Musk has excelled at an which I think? I was thinking about that Mark Twain quote which didn't say it but reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated right that should be musk's theme team so unnecessarily and as long as he can keep pulling out quarters that can drive the stock higher Keeps buying himself a lifeline. People who've dug into the numbers behind the third quarter would argue that. They aren't quite as good as they appear on the surface. And you have to remember that last year at this time must promise that Tesla would be profitable on an earnings basis and a cash flow basis going leaned forward and like many of Musk's promises said profits and cash flow did not materialize what What are the numbers behind the numbers that that concern people so just the games that were played in order to produce arguably in order to produce profits in the third quarter and see and cash flow and are those sustainable and with the expiration craciun the electric vehicle tax credits coming? What you could ask a question about what that might mean for the stock as well Caroline was the answer this question? I would disagree with the with the assessment assessment. You know if we look at what's going on with diamond right now and the changes in Europe in terms of emission standards Tesla's got a billion dollars of just free cash coming from credit sales in Europe. Europe that no one's really accounting for their models going forward and that we see coming forward for a couple of years Secondary actually been split. The you let you finish your second point in a moment but let's just focus on that first point if you're profitable because you are selling tax credits that's back to Bethany point. Can you be profitable without the tax credits whether they come from Europe or the United States can you believe you're on right there at a point where volumes are high enough that they can be profitable without the tax credits. But we're we're saying that there's another billion dollars of cash available to them over the next two years if not longer given where the European. Oem's are you know at this point. there's an awful lot of leverage as as your skill volumes on this on this platform and they're showing that they can control operating costs. That was your second point so bethany coming back to that if they big enough if they can and do this if they've written out the hardest parts if you're the short shorts disappearing at this point because this has always been a stock that's been so heavily. shorted are they willing to come back in the the charts are still there. Look this is this. Is the religious battle right between shorts and longs and people say well. It doesn't matter. The company's performance will tell the truth at the end of the day. But it. But it won't won't. It's kind of amazing because as long as Elon. Musk and maintain access to the capital markets. He's got a chance to pull it out If he loses access to the capital markets gets then the entire story changes across the board and so the stock price literally influences the future of this company as long as they're not believers must can raise capital. I wouldn't I wouldn't count him out right shutdown than than than the story changes. So that's why the battle is so pitched because because it literally influences the future. It's not just it's gotta feed the beast for for ten years. What's the path for? Ten years defeats win beating him. Well that's the question right. It goes back to Collins. Point are the prophet sustainable. Are They not sustainable. If the profits are sustainable then then the debate goes away. Because then he doesn't need the access to the capital markets anymore. How long has show me the chart do you believe? Do you not believe musk what. I don't think this is about healing anymore. I I think this is about what's going on. In the market with cars at consumers are going towards premium. Me and sustainable solutions are willing to pay for that sustainability secondarily. We've had for the last. Five quarters have been profitable with a fair amount of cash flow. They've got five billion dollars of cash cash on the balance sheet and they're growing with an awful lot of operating leverage. So my I think your point was relevant a year and a half ago maybe two years ago and now it's just not like I think the car market is move been there ahead of the game versus all about even bigger. SUV's trucks but you know if you looked at that we're not counting on. That is what people are Biradar. That's an American. I mean you've gotTa Look on global basis you know. People are buying smaller cars fishing cars in Europe. We think they've got a lot of growth in Europe we think there's an awful lot of demand in the US as demonstrated straighted for both model three as well as a model Lesson Model X.. And and they're continuing to put numbers up in terms of sales volume and gross margin. So I'm not sure what. The debate is about their sustainability versus. What's going on with automakers sustainability question? Where is this sustainable or is the question really multiple question at this point? I think I think it's a modern story because we've got a Debate around technology evolution within the auto market. We're seeing what's going on with. GM in terms of having to reconfigure all their technology and their manufacturing base diamonds laying off ten percent percent of their management team in and not being able to need emission standards. The take hand came out with two hundred miles of range. It's you know it's a sub par Solution or product versus versus. What's going on at Tesla like I? Don't see the arguments here. I would argue there still sustainability question about about about how sustainable the profits are going forward. And whether musk is gonNA need to raise whether Tesla's going to need to raise capital again so I would argue. There still is a sustainability question.

"News Dylan Byers on. Who spending what where and how? It's impacting our democracy. Twitter was exerting too much much influence on the political process and Tesla's year in review vanity. Fair's Bethany McLean on the company's Teflon leader. I was thinking about that. March Wang quote reports parts of my death have been greatly exaggerated right. That should be musk's theme so those stories and many more on today's podcast I'm NBC producer. Katie Kramer it's Wednesday December eighteenth. The two thousand Nineteen Squawk pod begins right now Hubei and three two one good morning everybody. Welcome to Squawk box here on. CNBC NBC. We are live from the Nasdaq market site in Times Square. I'm becky quick along with Joe. Kernan and Andrew. Ross sorkin first up on the podcast today. The House of Representatives. This is getting set for a vote on whether to impeach the president last night. President trump sent a scathing letter to house speaker. Nancy Pelosi demanding that she quote immediately cease this impeachment impeachment fantasy ahead of this historic vote. We do have the results of a new CNBC. All America Economic Survey with questions on Peach Mint and the president's handling of the economy. Steve Policeman Leeson has the details on that. Good Morning. Good Morning Becky the nation is solidly split on the issue of impeachment is. The House moves towards the vote today. The all America Economic Survey Finds Forty four percent founded the public police. Congress should impeach president trump forty-five percent do not the poll of eight hundred Americans conducted last week as margin of error plus or minus three and a half percent. The split comes as a result of a deep partisan. Divide seventy eight percent Democrats favor. Appeasement eighty-three percent of Republicans oppose it. Independence oppose it by a forty six wchs to forty one percent margin some Americans though say they could change their mind. Four percent of those. who favoured appeasement are open minded or say they are as six percent of those who opposes so adding adding eleven percent who are on shore and you come up with one in five? Americans put all those three together could potentially be swayed on the issue. What's that foreign in sixty seven so those are separate? Oh four percent of those. Thank you for asking that. Sometimes I never know if they're Understandable these church with four percent of those who favor impeachment say say they could change their mind. Six percent of those votes could change in my than the eleven percent unsure. Set up to one in five Americans say they could potentially swayed on the now president trump's jumpsuit and overall approval ratings rebounded from a hit they took from the start of the impeachment process back in September. These numbers are astonishing. Forty nine percent of the public approves the president trump sadly the economy while forty percent disapprove. And that's a sharp rebound from the September survey which was taken you remember. Just as the impeachment process began the the president's economic approval numbers fell underwater for the first time forty nine percent disapproved job the president is doing overall and forty percent approve. It's still a net negative live of nine on the approval number but well improved from the net negative sixteen September. What's interesting about the Polish Americans? Making a distinction thirteen percent Stanton Moore Democrats and twelve percent more independence like the job the president's doing on the economy and they like the jobs doing overall kind of go back to September. What happened tendency timber to hurt some of his? I've been thinking about this a lot because you know I've been doing this for a long time. Sometimes you want to be on the news and maybe sometimes you don't. We came out with this poll or we went into the field just as the Democrats said they were going to the president. So what we picked up in this years ago three years ago the most recent Oh left. I'm sorry I get why we call it. The Old America survey though which was thirteen years years ago. You've told me that nobody could believe we were interviewing anybody but rich people and Wall Street. It's all in there but this is all American. Do with athletes. That's why we call it that the distinction that they make what happened to answer. The biggest question is that it was a visceral reaction where the president's economic approval numbers huge it and we said there was nothing going on with the guys if you don't mind very quickly that the the overall approval numbers they don't change very much. Watch this forty percent a Republican pollster. Yesterday we have a Republican. Democratic pollster said for as volatile presidency as this is the stability of the improvers. Disapproval is one of the most astonishing thing is it gets back to the idea of people digging trenches as versus the other base. And you. Don't you did not have that kind of stability in the in the Obama presidency. That's the only place that you see stability though it. It's interesting because you people are just so dead set on their beliefs on this entrenched there again. It's the tribalism playing out. It is fascinating becky. How narrow narrow the window is to get those majorities? If you notice there is not a majority pitchman. There's a dead split at forty four forty five in five Americans. Americans are in play here. We cannot underestimate the effect of that to sixty six on that Friday. And if that were to be the jobs number the for the two sixty six job number on Friday that that were to be reversed that command. Even the mainstream media picked up those numbers and that that was such a there are some wage gains and headlines gone and the economy is a three and a half which brought a fifty year lows with. You're gonNA hit the headlines. Joe Is absolutely right and jobs. Numbers have good headlines. The stock doc the shot for for a country. We're only like fifty or fifty. Five percent of the public owned stocks. The extent to which the stock market influences their views on the economy. Fifty fifty is that the six percent in the poll again. I'm jumping the gun on tomorrow. They see see those headlines and it sinks into their three percent for the about what they view on the economy and it also sinks into their views on how much they should spend I for the holidays tomorrow. Tomorrow's tomorrow thank you. We work has reportedly secured a financial lifeline. This time from Goldman Sachs. The bank said to be giving the struggling office sharing company a new line line of credit worth nearly one point. Eight billion dollars. Now this is part of soft bank's bailout four. We work. That was announced in October. Should say some some of this though is secured in a way that my understanding of it puts Goldman at the top of the stack in terms of in terms of getting the buildings in terms of as a creditor women because remember we were doing on the buildings on some of them. I thought I thought Adam Newman but but but I think that what you're talking about here is I think it's actually. I don't know the specifics of how it's detailed but in terms of the credit stack they go. I heard you become the I don't know by the way. Maybe maybe there's some guarantee against Softbank itself. I don't know but what I was gonNA suggest is unless you unless you fundamentally think that we work worth zero. You'd be an underlying business there that you would get there's gotta be assets related really. That's what I wonder. What are the assets? If it's not the buildings that it's it's a good question. It's a very good question. But somebody's believing something here because one point eight billion dollars not nothing. That's why I wonder if you're right about Softbank. Bank guaranteed lillies. CEO's firing back at presidential candidate. Elizabeth Warren the senator released a survey on Monday. That found eighty three percent of pharmacies did not have lillies cheaper. Insulin and in some cases pharmacists did not inform customers that a cheaper version was available. Oh speaking with Jim Cramer on mad Monday. I'm Ed many yesterday. Lily See David. rix disputed the senators accusation. That drugmaker failed on. Its pledge to provide patients with lower priced insulin. That's not sit so it's only one hundred of them will look. I haven't read the details of the report. I read their press release. I can tell you what the facts are today. Many policymakers encouraged us to just lower the price of insulin. We did that. We launched a half price of our best selling product act but only one out of four Americans with party coverage and in commercial coverage next year. We'll have access to this. This doesn't show that we didn't try. We did try. You can order this product today from your pharmacy. This shows what's broken in the rest of the pharmaceutical system..

"It's probably the biggest case of media malpractice that I've seen in a very long time. It's almost like it's coordinated. These people cannot be this stupid but it is a great case study in how lazy the media's I have worked in the media. I've seen the way these stories get pumped out by twenty two year old kids who read other headlines and regurgitate the stuff vaping this vaping that the Jewish Jill who has not been tied to anyone going to a hospital anywhere. Ask yourself a question. Nobody is ask question. This is killing people right. You've heard it is killing people into all these shops that are selling legal products now have to go to business going out of business in New York because we'll get to that stupid law and in Massachusetts and other other places California's Ashington Michigan. Why wouldn't you think that the. FDA would tell you the the name of the product that they believe might be killing people. We don't know for sure but here. This person died. They found in their room could have been these. Why haven't haven't they done that because none of these are brand fucking names these are things that people are getting off the street. They're like homebrew stuff. Jewel is not killing. Any ban is literally like the health version of trump's. We need a Muslim ban until we figure out what's going on yeah. It's exactly right. It's very good comparison. This is the vaping Muslim ban yeah yeah yeah. It's funny because Anthony supports both it's but it is crazy. People say like the effects of this are so so far and wide is that it has nobody believes and I don't know why they're study after study that proved that this is not the case and there's it's like a few old studies that suggested that people don't quit smoking or they're dual. Use is what they say. Oh there's one that's fucking bullshit. I know I know nobody who who do uses quote unquote. I know a ton of literally dozens and dozens of people who quit smoking on this I quit smoking because of it and if I cannot not get it in New York. I will buy cigarettes because I'm not ready to not have nicotine right now and we're not all him. Sorry combined all of them. Everyone that's attributed to vaping is not even in four figures yet right know God gave. I think we're in three if the most generous I didn't see it that high but it's my case. That's the point cancer from cigarettes. How how many how many I send us. I said this is the show for the most dangerous consumer product on the market is still legal Goku. You can still sell it like well. We ban flavors. My favorite one is somebody in Congress and saying you know because the kids were getting flavor. That's not a real thing. When I I was a kid. I was smoking Marlboros. Nicotine feels good. Yes this isn't there and it's so funny like Oh. We got the kids off of cigarettes and now these came in if it wasn't for these kids would not be doing anything bad. What were they they. They born fucking forty years old this I mean I I absolutely insane. It's dangerous do the this is one of the times and I try not to use these kind of phrases too much these days but this is the kind of time mm-hmm when bipartisanship should scare the shit out of exactly exactly right intimating so we we have friends that we will not name definitely not name who who told us one time that he had interviewed Reshi Tube and said that this is not a very high guy instead. She's not particularly. I watched her congressional. Mao Wing of a witness where she tried to establish the witnesses politics and the witness said I don't believe that to be relevant actually quite smart and she's very poisoning EPA cool. She kept a cool and it was a and if you haven't watched this is so bazaar that these are the people not only that our elected officials but these are the ones who are being celebrated routinely as we should leave in the squad and the rest of it and it it was so bad at one point. She said I mean this is a blithering idiot from a state that is doing things banning. You know flavored e cigarette the she said that second hand smoke was quote worse than directly smoking cigarettes. She said that there was science. She said there was scientific proof a- ask and she nearly started to cry while she was telling me she she got emotional and just before she says I'm so sad. Just have this job in my brain is failing me just before that she accused the witness that she was you know hectoring winking and being a conspiracy theorist out of nowhere as we're based on on no testimony and then because the witness apparently winked at somebody on the committee because he knows your who she knows and so invited explain vitamin yeah like to could not help the Belabor the issue for more than a minute like why are you winking. What is that about. What's going on here is there? I mean it is so ludicrous. The claims names that they make in the Clemson can get away with because you know like Jacob sounds book for your own good. Is it provided they're doing for the kids. It's no coincidence that the major organization was the tobacco free kids. They care about the kids. That's what they're always interested in because the kids are vaping and the kids weren't vaping before and it's gone up up from twenty one percent to twenty eight percent of kids tried it you know these are studies and now all of a sudden they seize upon people dying from THC. You know like bad vitamin. E. Oils is what the theory is right now we don't know and they seize on that and they say oh my. God now we can strike the death blow because we haven't been able to before I interviewed a guy named Stan glance who is by the way who is a anti vaping antismoking activist and he he acknowledged to me. He said the best if everybody he was crazy I disagree with everything but he said if everybody on earth smoke cigarettes switch to vaping we would save millions of lives lives. He acknowledged that that that's clearly and then you have to leave saying that we're all going to die from smoking jewels and won't why can't we save the kids. Secondhand smoke is more dangerous than smoking a cigarette. That's I mean there was debate along time ago of whether the secondhand smoke was actually the same even had an effect remember Steven Brill. We're seeing umbrella of course started court. TV and Brill's Brill's content. He writes content like saying the myth of seconds. Yeah I mean it is bizarre and as I said before is that it is honestly like saying we have to ban Coca Cola products because one hundred people drank bleach died well. They're both drinking so we have to ban things that you drink. No no Rothman has been a guest on the show aping not all the saying no Rothman has been a guest on this show very smart guy. I thought wrote a very eloquent article commentary a couple of weeks ago where he described this as having all the hallmarks of immoral it is immoral told me that advice because nicotine's a drug people feel good over there must be some you know puppet master nefarious force that is you you know fooling us all into taking this poison that will kill us all and it's only the the week people the people that need their drug that are going to endanger the rest of us thought it was very incisive point. You make those weird hand motions around your nose when you say nefarious force. It makes me think that you're being anti Semitic I just wanted to. I didn't even know that my hands were near My. I bet you bet your Isreaeli wife. FYI None of us talk with our for for those of you out there who are going to get into the conspiracy and clean it. I I was making a Hook Moshi. That's what you're doing. That's wrong. That's wrong but thank you this guy. Yeah cool. We're against writer right in your on the in your face. Fisher got anything else. I mean we did there. was there was one that. I think think we we should hit. which was the the the tweet tweet dumpster diving? If you don't mind I'll T- this up do because there were two instances this this particular week where intrepid journalists decided that people's old tweets tweets were the most important thing to research and write about in one case case that you flagged for me Breitbart Writer Harris Alec. I believe is how you pronounce the name. I don't know didn't respond to my. DM's doesn't lose their he he went. After Jasmine Hughes New York Times magazine editor WHO's also been invited on the show to discuss her work on the sixteen nineteen project but apparently she had some old tweets that some flirted with anti-semitism many were overtly anti white but that's not really racist. I mean some some didn't even flirt with antisemitism. Really I mean who is Beth Israel and how does she have so many hospitals. Dell's just think it's a ticket. That's a stupid horrible semantic. That's what I'm saying. It's not it's not I thought you we're going the other way. Really stupid jokes ridiculous ever Noah had worst tweets. I will quote Seinfeld defense he was. Did you know what offends me as a comedian that was Bryan Cranston. I believe was the Bryan Cranston is bad jobs. Thanks I converted to Judaism jokes great. It goes up as a so the other one. Though is the moines register who I I mean I can barely impact this thing but there was some guy some random guy who held a sign at a football all game asking people to donate money for them and then he got a lot of Bush light beer money whenever he became a viral thing I missed the whole thing uh-huh but don't shake duck exactly milkshake duck as the register found as they called it. They called it a routine background check. They found that when he let see working for the fucking. MTA seven twenty-three seven years ago when he was a sixteen year old high school student he made some bad racist antisemitic jokes and to call all of them bad racist entity message and he's jokes is is to like imply that he has you know dark dark hearted motivation immediately apologize post posting idiot sixty and so so the Des Moines Register Anthony sixteen-year-old Daniel what you're GonNa Criticize Greta foreign lorry the thornbirds not and not Grizz Grizz tweet history when she was nine seven yeah. I know the registered. This kid was telling me what to what what we should do about how much I fly more anger at the Bush Light Beer Guy Yeah Bush slight Bush's like pretty much water as it is so the one registered released a ver the executive editor released very long statement defending why hey they thought that this was newsworthy. They are now apparently under police protection because of the the backlash and the threats against them so I don't really have a judgment on that just pointing out that this is like a tale of two dumpster diving tweet investigations and they both are coming coming from completely different motivations but they both the the the actions are still the same the the actions are the the intent is to find people's ephemeral social media mind brain farts and destroy their lives because of it well. The thing is is the reason it works. We've shown over and over and over again that works and there's a new trend that I've seen amongst writers somebody did this and and the new Republicans haven't read the piece yet but I'm sure you know this guy to be quite William F. Buckley than this but I is as pyromaniac. GonNa feel this drama but yeah it seems to me that from what I've seen the PRECIS of his visit and republic that canceled culture is a myth big thing now in this is always is the stage of this sort of thing because I think you look in. If you look at Amazon I find it. I could probably find now. There was a book and ninety four ninety. Three in the first grade is like a punic punic. Wars is the first political correct wars on campus. There was a book called the myth of political correctness about you know the whole premise was that political correctness didn't even exist. It wasn't even a real thing invention. Eric Alterman did something that he did a myth a liberal media th th this is a myth of political correctness it all this stuff. It was hyperventilating. hyperventilating from Danish dislike conservatives who first major book was actually about that about like it's called something. Illiberal Education I think the myth of political correctness the conservative attack Engine Higher Education Junkie Wilson Ninety five ninety five there you go. You're off but yeah. There's so there's always this thing happens always when it happens at rather than engaging these things you make fun of people for even bringing it up and like. Oh you're one of those conspiracy theories you create the conspiracy theory by naming it despite the fact you're not specific about it..
"teflon" Discussed on The Fifth Column
"The newly elected president of Ukraine uh-huh questions swirling around the president and whether or not he is using his position to perhaps benefit himself perhaps denigrate great one of his opponents by directing the president of Ukraine to dig up some dirt on vice president former vice president and now presidential nominee candidate Joe Biden who at some point in the past has said Sad as admitted publicly on that he helped a pressure on the Ukrainians to get rid of someone who was involved in some investigations who himself had some nasty allegations swirling around him and apparently by almost every reputable report. I've seen a very bad dude but who at the time happen to be investigating his son Hunter Biden Hunter Biden who is a member of the Biden clan along with his his uncle Joe's brother and his other brother who's passed away all of whom have been involved in the family business in some way shape or form arm which the family business appears to be being somewhat tangentially related to Joe Biden and either obtaining some elected office or enriching yourself financially really by dealing with various people in different businesses and there were questions about hunter because he had a job working for for a obtained a job working for a Ukrainian oil producing company working as rather fancy words what he was doing working for. I guess consultants in the but consult again in his capacity as son of Joe Biden Karen Chapter. Maybe as enjoyer. It's not clear what his role there was any expertise so what is clear is that there was some scandal there and some questionable conduct there at that particular firm and the closeness of the relationship there necessarily created some questions so much so that this was reported in the New York Times which obviously is not explicitly conservative sort of scandal rag back so for them to be covering it suggests that there are real questions there and for some time now I I gave a big setup for some time now the president along with Rudy Giuliani Ed who is now his principal legal pit bull and his chief defender in the national news media have been talking up the prospect of there being some insidious scandal related to Joe Biden and the way that his family has seemingly enrich themselves in different ways either in their dealings with China or their dealings with Ukraine and the president has said publicly and apparently privately that Joe Biden should be investigated and on this phone call. Apparently he said the same thing. This came to light because a whistle blower. I'm sent an official complaint and now are we find ourselves in the midst of very very intense scrutiny from the Congress and the Senate in particular but also the house mostly Democrats who are saying that we are definitely going to open an impeachable investigation. Some Republicans and some Republicans are also there as well and I will say this guy's a into open it up to get away from the setup that perhaps is a little boring because at this point most of you know this stuff. I think you do does seem to me like pretty dodgy. It's dodgy. President of the United States is talking to one of his counterparts. Another national leader who who is suspending these funds two days before they get on the phone. I want to hear the call a- because from reading this kind of truncated Celeski is like this. Is this this kind of consider this. Those are the notes from the White House landed pro. White House transcript Johnny because he's like yeah. I WANNA call you and congratulate you on the election these like it. You know there are parliamentary elections. It's not already called me when I won the presidency. Remembers Lansky is a funny guy is a comedian and had a show and the show was about becoming a comedian becoming president and then he replicated it in real life which quite cool but the first thing that is being lost in this is the unbelievable scumbag array of one hundred. I don't believe he did anything illegal. As far as I I can tell haven't seen any evidence of that but for five years he sat on the Board of Ukrainian oil company having no expertise in oil or Ukraine we know and you know this is recruiting oil companies by quite quite important when you look at Russia which controlling oil flowing westwards in turn spigot and make things very difficult for western Europe. I mean that's a very important position for oil company so to note when Biden was on the two thousand fourteen fourteen thousand nine hundred and at the time prior to yes so this is a very bad thing to and it is fifty fifty thousand dollars a month upwards of which means it's probably about that so if you do the math on that that's the three million dollars position for doing nothing money in so donald trump and I think the only thing I can remember saying positive about anything on his campaign platform was this idea of banning people from from from going from government service into lobbying because there are people that basically do this and go make contacts for two years in Congress and then create these like really shady lobbying firms terms. You know look do whatever they want. I know that that's probably not a smart idea from doing that. I like the instinct of it because I hate those people so much. I think they're disgusting gusting and there's so many of them in DC. It's just full of vultures. Cuza Blanca vultures vultures everywhere and that's in Biden is one of those I mean if somebody offered me that position position I would probably take it and but I I would immediately assume oh my father's vice president. It was currently his vice president. Maybe they want on something from me. When you talk to my dad about like like like try to earn your money right try to so onto ends. This is what it seems to me to on both ends of this. It seems like people scratching a lottery ticket right the Democrats in Congress as a keep on waiting for that silver bullet for impeachment. Whatever it's GonNa be it's go? This is going to be on this is going to be and it's like no. It's better to get a job and work to earn money than to just keep on buying lottery tickets and scratching them away and hoping to become a millionaire because it's going to backfire and it has been backfiring so far and on the other end that is the same thing as trump. I mean there is no evidence. Prosecutor was fired because of in you know any investigation and right under Biden and it seems that around this time he was fired. Any investigation into the oil company was dormant but that doesn't seem to matter to anyone but it's like everyone's everyone's trying like I'm GonNa get Biden on. This and it's like I'll tell you what the the thing about Watergate. That was interesting. The actual machinations of Watergate people still don't understand it takes a while to get what was going on. You know the operation gemstone the plumbers and John Mitchell being thrown in jail Alan. You know all these Cubans and it's a complicated story. The only thing that really resonated there Ben Sasse is not exactly what Barry Goldwater was. He was one of the first people people to walk over to the White House in Nineteen seventy four and say Mr President. You have a big problem. You have to get the fuck Outta here there. There's some rumblings on the right. This is a very bad luck but of course the what will happen. I think if I if this does go somewhere dark in somewhere 'cause like any day. We're in the middle is any day something eh bad can happen. Something worse can happen more information. Come out. It's usually drip drip drip. That's the most effective politics but look lying about about this stuff in and again. This is what people don't realize did a Nixon. Any young persons reasonably well informed but not a political junkie. They'll say like Nixon broke into the next office in the cover ups was in the crime and if they're trying to take this document in put it from one where it's supposed to be due to a secure server and look here conservatives that they're saying well you know the President has supreme power to classify yeah but when you're actively taking something and moving it's the actual gesture of saying. We don't want to make sure that people cannot see this that even even still. I believe there are still questions about that. That's not that was true. Procedure for the White House now has multiple times now had transcripts of calls or details of calls with other foreign leaders so they perhaps have taken steps to generally now classified these conversations. I don't know if that's the case. Here's a question for someone someone in the is for someone who was in the know. Oh and heard that conversation to hear it and say you. I wish you hadn't said that for them to classify that call afterwards I totally believe it and for the president someone around him him to say hey you know what we'll do. We'll totally put their money on the on the side and will mention it to them more than a little casually that that we would like for them to take a look. This biden thing that Giuliani and bar are going to be giving you a call. GonNa put you in touch talk to them. I totally believe it well by report and so I sort of extemporaneous trump well. That's the thing trump of course this is trump's razor right. This is the thing is that if you're going to do something like that. Don't have twenty people pulling the room. They literally had twenty seven writing down all the things saying literally twenty people I mean you can do back channel if you need to but there's a trump's razor thing is that the guy is so dumb in so reckless that what one would presume there would be some tradecraft here right in some op sack right right that you you don't get that with him because he's a doddering old fool. soldering has been saying this for months the call problem no what he wants. The problem is not that it's quite clear that Ukrainians thought that's after an a quid pro quo way because we don't understand why I mean you can't talk about the story without talking about the fact that military aid was mysteriously held back why this is actually a question for people who were Russia conspiracy theories were giving military into Ukraine. okay we they were. I thought this was a criminal. Maybe it's enormous. You know misinformation campaign but that is the problem. That's the quid pro quo. I mean if I mean Napolitano's was on his created some sort of fight some internecine fight at Fox then there's between Shepard Smith and Tucker Carlson about this stuff because you know Napolitano's Palestinian saying like yeah he he did something illegal. If there's a quid pro quo there if not you know that's illegal right and you know impeachable but we don't know that yet so it's a wait-and-see thing but either way it's your job in a way as a as a president to not consistently get yourself. I mean it's unbelievable unbelievable the transit you hear that call. It's it's like he's such a dunce. Yeah in this stuff is inevitably going to happen doesn't mean it it was it's now months that caused July. It's months after the report has come out and Mrs how he's talking Rhino. He knows everybody's looking for any excuse to reboot conspiracy you you mentioned the Miller report though the very first thing president mentions is the crowd strike roofing which is actually it's. It's difficult to understand what the hell he's talking walking out but he seems to be suggesting that there seems to be invoking. This crowd strike related conspiracy theory that the some some rich shadowy Ukrainian owns crowd strike. None has the Hillary Clinton. DNC get curry's. It's insane. It's what is wrong with you one. It's I know I'm surprised Sherbourne nearly nearly three years later and he's bringing this up in a brief conversation. Short is the first thing when he says I could. You do me a favor those those either yeah. Can you find the by the way what does this tell you about. Donald trump it. Actually it's so funny..
"teflon" Discussed on The Fifth Column
"People that make an occasional ourselves and I should've amend this whole thing began like can I can actually call the show like Emmy Award winning play another show itself hasn't when any hardware we are any Jason but because Michael Moynahan Vice News who's in the building and he is Emmy Award winning journalist God. He is associated with with the podcast name. His name is under the mass that we qualify because they don't give those kinds of things to God cast anyway. Apparently they give them to anyone. Exactly yeah even even old white white guys stretching. It's not right and it's not fair while I was in. He's in the building. Thank you Anthony Fisher. Also in the building fresh off of his stint uh-huh co hosting the Republican presidential nominee debate thing co moderating the debate hosted by business talk about that a little bit daily show treatments on point and and Camille foster is also here now. I do stuff at free think casually I. I also suffering servant what I am. I'm very impressed. Camile yeah because you texted me earlier. Today and you're like I wanted to do it. I don't want to go do it's fucking forty five minutes. I was like it was like the dentist coming out and refined pop. Just shut up and you come and I do have Zayn more sympathy for you because I see shuffling in is shot and you say three in the morning from some other state so I have to say I'm and I'm very impressed that you gave a very spirited intro somebody who hasn't slept much and I don't believe any longer taking taking prescription stimulants. This is true. I'm high off of life and French in school. Kids see you guys very good friend. Matt Welsh is somewhere on assignment or just generally fucking laze. He's at large is the editor at large reason magazine see I did that. there's a great deal going on in the world. we should talk about is apparently. Oh my God going to be impeached again but probably not because Teflon Don he can't be touched but even if the navy tomorrow something else remember. Bill Clinton was impeached. Yeah and we got eight years. We'll see and we deserve long and hard hitching really about how that works works gross thing to say how it works. Is it particularly particularly for Bill Clinton Lindsay context appropriate. Yes that's the problem I mean if it wasn't a an Obama was large. No I think we should talk a little bit about the president's situation but it is so fluid and changing moment to moment who knows where that will end up by the time this is released but there is a young lady who set the world ablaze or is trying to stop the ones. Yes yes again look at the things he said. This is all very well calibrated before I say it on the war on e CIGS is still going on and I think we should not going on and it's it's. It's an IT's a battle. The bulge credible is it but I think we should begin with this whole emmy situation because as I understand it when the EMMYS are are so white again yeah there's at least been reported a few cases and given you how yeah I was just a different emmys. No on the news and documentaries that's not one is sitting in the crowd counting the number of why people on stage because the people the WHO typically do that are sitting in the crowd because it's a news emmys the previous night they're watching the ones on television this is this is why the game of thrones wants people. There's no photos of you with them. Now I have a photo Jamie and Peter ledges. Just I fall Chelsea to see him and Chelsea all the time. 'cause I used to work over and I used to see. This is what I'm saying but I used to see. This dog had a huge DASA dog. It's amazing. I've seen him why I haven't seen him. I've seen photos the same he had this big dog and I would always see I'm not going to say more than that. Yes because he was doing take me away. He was doing it on purpose. It was to troll people. You don't at that point. Maybe you had to do it or it was good because now he's just fucking. Peter England yeah I mean he's like you know. Women's Love Him Yeah Yeah. Everyone knows I got Peter Drink which is really hot. I like I like you know. I think he's great. He's a great actor. He's he's funny as green is also very handsome and is he's a handsome uh-huh and is a British accent got better as that show in on despite haven't seen it. I saw the first episode and then kind of one of the later ones. Hook and he sounded he's sounded better but yes at the emmys regret great that was it was it was fun but the Emmy so why does the different so that one I said to you because you were out there. During during Oscarssowhite like fucking Euclid doing math equations about why that wasn't true. I sent you a message about this and then I'm GonNa find the message that I sent because there was a an article like why don't we can pay attention but there was an article in Vogue. you know it's not a small magazines means a big. It's a big magazine and so there was an an emmy is article V. I was like okay this is this is inevitable and it was the headline was two thousand. Emmys were once again so white in the picture beneath it is the only I think all white cast which is game of thrones right which is not alway cat. I was not an AK why cast but the photo here the people who appear to be mostly mostly white but it's also an incredible situation in the world world that I'm looking at a photo of a TV show after they've won an award that I think is richly deserved people's attention and saying I'm count generally. I'm trying trying to figure out what race everyone I mean. It's kind of a kind of a weird thing but so I sent this to you. Is it sounds like you're in the nineteen sixties or something yeah. No I know weird it works. I was weird that Bull Connor presented Orval fobus award for lifetime achievement sufficiently white achievement it said Emmys Amis categories twenty six categories they're handed out in only three yes three major awards major awards. I don't know how they qualify that people of color you're and then down below that says the twelve acting honors given to two black actors so you know we're talking to thirteen percent representation because we're talking about representation. You have to do this right. Thirteen percent yeah right. Isn't that interesting number to twelve would be well. I twenty six. It would be three so that's perfect out of out of out of twelve. That's too that's overrepresented right so I don't really understand yea what this stuff is supposed to be because then you realize I had a bit of a connection last episode about an article article about some tall show go back and listen to it because then you'll get your need is very vital content. That's how we downloads you. We don't we won't tell you anymore but my favorite bit and his piece some saw when you start by the way ladies and gentlemen boys and girls if you are training to be journalist news and you start a sentence say says some saw you're fired but it's two thousand nine hundred and fourteen year olds or running not invoke some sought. Chernobyl's triumphs as robbing Eva Duvalier's highly praised when they see us a searing look at the Central Park five stories another instance American awards voters preference for European history over their own countries dark past now. Let's do something here quickly. I wouldn't actually actually called Ternopil European History Soviet Socialist Republic. It's the Soviet Union in a nineteen ninety-six but if you want to expand Europe Eurasia or something but this this is exactly what I was talking about the other day in the last episode it and I saw this and multiple versions of this article is that criticism has become this. The merits of the show don't matter at all. It's like we'd how did share noble win against Aberdeen as divorce as show is a better show in by the way. I think that journal was the first show that was on. I'm one hundred percent rating after like ten thousand votes yeah look. I liked it. That was a very good show. I think it has like some severe of factual scientific fantastic deficiencies but there's some there's some yeah it is haunting yes and an amazing. Nothing happened really fantastic. So you see the Korean. Everything blows up and just like as film. It is a very very difficult thing to make something like that. Four five thing everyone loves it and it's essentially the historical version of a Harold Pinter play. It's just people taking dramatic pauses and huffing and puffing around Kennedy really really works and the criticism areas that because caused this when they see us is about the central park five and that is our history by the way imagine that nativist kind of idea. This is our history and you're favoring their history. This US versus them kind of paradigm but the funny thing about this. Is it completely flattens whether or not these films are good. you know this is the thing that I it was representations. about WHO's being nominated and now it's about representation and who's being chosen there might be a year in which you know minority led show. Ron Written directed shows run the tables and I can see that happening very easily because I can think of a lot of shows that fit that bill that are great. Atlanta tore it up a couple years ago and it was great and it's a great. It's really actually a great show. I wasn't show great television show and I don't care what color doesn't matter to great TV show and then and you know this is like look. Chernobyl was a great piece of work and this person was complaining that you should have chosen your preference should be it's kind of a Stalinist incident. It isn't it was like a like a Pravda review is art is for the people when they say that it means tell you what the art is going to be in this thing taking the the voter's preference for European. It's you know maybe it's their preference for good television over. You know okay television in. I tried to watch that thing and it just wasn't my cup. I'm not I'm not going to say. It's a bad of piece of work. I just you know but it's crazy that this is actually how ninety percent of the coverage on other stuff just like this. I'm like how how could you choose this Jilani Cobb from the New Yorker who I hope will come on the show who tweeted the voters had an.
Tesla will return to the ‘Ring in October to try beating Porsche’s EV record
"Porsche versus tesla part two so we went over you guys you you're probably listening the last episode of the podcast where we talked about porsche tycoon am i'm trying to say correctly now porsche ticon is the way i'm supposed to take on a porsche haicang abbott porsche porsche but we all saw that announcement and i don't even know if i can save they technically took any shots at teflon stage but everybody knew that every time they compare themselves to air quotes the competition they were talking about tesla model wasn't the chevy evil it wasn't the chevy volt they didn't really make any nissan leaf jabs onstage they were kinda gone squarely at their high-performance cousin so that happened and you know those kind of silence and there's a little bit of you know people tagging eli like hey what would he say about porsche and i think he did say something like yeah why did you put turbo on the name i don't think that word means it means obviously in this electric car battle but of course the the competitive of nature of a of a competitive CEO just couldn't stay inside and he had to start making moves and i'm sure a lot of this was hush hush for a while but now they're officially working on some new hardware for tesla and i'll probably call this a refresh ya to take on the ticon to take to take the take on take on the tight to make moves so here's what i'll start porsche was bragging about their laptop about the nurburgring right uh-huh thirteen mile tracks something like that very very long lap difficult for an electric car to lap without cooling kicking in limiting performance so they set their record around the nurburgring and a lot of people turn their heads back to tesla like yeah well what are you going to say what are you gonna do like the the porsche is going to be better at driving around tracks than you yeah we talked about it in the episode where we talked about this tesla hasn't been able to do it because it's a grueling track yeah and a huge car so yvonne tweets that the model s. is gonna nurburgring okay like you when you a lot of people don't realize this about the track runs as you don't just show up in your car and just go go and time yourself like this is a this is an officially timed thing you hire professional driver who knows the course well so that he can set your optimal lap time time if you go look at the the best lap times around i think it's both laguna seca and nurburgring but if you look at laguna seconds top like thirty laptops mhm about fifteen or twenty of them are set by the same one guy or in a bunch of different cars which is fascinating because this person knows the ins and outs of the tracks so these race car drivers are hired to yo to go drive and set the best possible app time in that car so you tweet this model ascona nurburgring next week and then a bunch of articles come out afterwards like he tesla doesn't have a reservation or any sort of setup or scheduling to actually do this so if they're doing a record run nurburgring doesn't know about it which is kind of a perfectly aligned thing to happen oh yeah but then shortly thereafter this the shorter track called laguna second am i saying that right i'm gonna just mispronounce a lot the things during this i think we'll bruno's right well it's so laguna seca shorter track it's about a minute and a half to lap maybe up to two minutes and he shows a model title s lapping luna secca in a record for four door car one minute thirty six seconds the the tweet is actually from the tesla count this time and they let me actually read the tweet 'cause i was we were in the airport when this tweet came up and i've been sort of just on the on the fence about whether or not tesla's going to refresh their cars and then i saw this in my timelines let me read it so the tweet is some personal news we've lap laguna seca in one minute thirty six point five five five seconds during advanced RND testing casting of our model s. plaid powertrain and chassis prototype that's one second faster than the record for a four-door sedan and he can see this video of of a driver from the driver's perspective and through the front of the car and if you squint you can see there's a model three steering wheel on this car and as a driver ever in helmet assuming not his first lap but he's doing his crazy fast
Space Spinoffs: The Technology To Reach The Moon Was Put To Use Back On Earth
"This week on the show. We have a bit of a special episode. It's The fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo eleven moon landing from Nineteen sixty-nine the journal has been publishing stories videos and podcasts and all sorts of stuff about the history and legacy of Apollo eleven but on this year we're going to do something slightly different. We're GONNA look at some of the ways that the technology elegy invented and worked on and required to get a man on the moon in nineteen sixty nine still affects the tech that we all use now in twenty nineteen it turns out. There's more of that than anything here with me to do so since Joanna Stern is still gone Christopher uh-huh Christopher Hay there are you are you a moon guy like is is space and the moon landing like a thing that you love in general even when it's not the fiftieth anniversary I've had a personal renaissance. I think it's the Apollo eleven anniversary of been watching some stuff. Watch Paul Thirteen kids one of the Aerospace Museum. I don't know maybe I'm just getting old nostalgic but this stuff is cool. I agree I had the thing that really did for me. was there was a documentary came out the very beginning of this year. I think it's just called Apollo Eleven. That's like all this found wound footage that turns out to be amazingly high resolution of like the people who were there and in the control room and it was it was this sort of visceral experience kind of like you're actually watching it happen live and ever since then I've gone back into like my eighth phase in my lifetime of being totally obsessed with the space program and it's been very fun yeah. That's that's an astonishing documentary highly recommend Apollo eleven you can stream it. Oh Yeah I saw it an I max to which was one of the cooler things I've ever done but I- millimeter I'm sure it was amazing with the sound system but even on a little screen streamed. It was pretty pretty special totally okay so we have two stories this week and I I wanNA start by talking about the space suit so the Apollo eleven space was an incredible thing it's made of mylar lar and nylon and Teflon and even fiberglass it had to keep astronauts cool without being cold and warm without being hot and had to be super flexible and easy to work in but totally impenetrable even for elements that designers didn't know existed existed the suit that they came up with actually two hundred eighty pounds on earth but luckily that translated only thirty in the lesser gravity on the moon a lot of the things that were created to make those suits work turned out to have lots of other uses you know those huge huge white tent like roofs when you might see over a stadium or a concert venue. There's a good chance those are made of fabric called Beta cloth which is basically teflon coated fiberglass that was designed for the spacesuit. What are the companies that developed it by the way was corning which now makes it's the glass on top of your phone's screen but still the most spacesuit thing you might own now is a pair of sneakers and that's in large part? Thanks to our first guest Al Gross I could explain it'll be more fun to get him to and he's here now Hale Hi. How are you very good? <hes> yes I started working on the human engineering aspects of sports equipment relative to space suits. I started with ski boots of all types and we also did ski clubs. The installation ski outfits etc and from the ski boots. I went to the sneakers mainly because it's a larger market I had played college basketball and I'm a runner in much of the ski boot technology from space suits also fit into athletic shoes very well. I had done these projects for Nike the Adidas Converse a six Timberland Yukon of via many many companies in athletic shoe business over the years and I continue to do so wow okay so let's let's before we actually get some of that. Let's let's back up fifty or so years tells kind of about what you were doing at NASA in the in the sixties in particular in the run-up to Apollo Eleven. What was your what was your job? Everything I did was call. I was in school during Mercury and Gemini and I'm sort of the child of Apollo I started at Cape Canaveral worked on the Saturn. I five rocket launch engineer for two years. At the Cape. We man rated the vehicle with the first two unmanned Saturn five launches before we felt it was safe enough to put a crew on board. The first crew was Apollo. Wait which would the frank borman voyage around the moon where he quoted some the Bible and we I saw earth rise appear in from the dark side of the Moon I was then recruited to move to Houston Texas and become the lead systems design engineer of the Space Program Program of course at that time. I knew nothing whatsoever about space suits but neither did anybody else so it wasn't too much of a disadvantage. There was a history of pressure suits with the air force and a lot of air force personnel. Were there as well so so I was the head lead design engineer of spacesuit program in Houston and eventually I moved up to the factory where the space suits are made which is in Dover Delaware and became the design engineer on the production floor of the space suits. I needed the production experience to move into private industry which he cannot get up. The space center's themselves so I was lead design engineer over manufacturing space suits as well as being at the space center in Houston over systems and design and. What is it like to build a space? I mean you're you're designing a thing that no one's ever worn before for a place. They've never been before out of materials that no one has ever used before what how does that process work like what is the what is the trial and error like when you're trying to design a spacesuit surely fun on because it's human it goes on a human so we could get inside the space suits we could test the fingers of the gloves the elbows of the arms the knees that would go on the legs. All of these things are called mobility joints which are the most important part of the spacesuit so because it's human factors engineering your getting inside of your design you can feel touch it smell it. It's unlike driving a car like design a car. It's partly human engineering but it's not so close and intimate as a suit in is one of the things I've read is that things like knees and elbows were hugely challenging and involved a lot of sort of inventing brand new things to make it work but what when you're thinking about designing a spacesuit really for the first time was it obvious what the hardest parts were going to be. What were those things easy the mobility joints? I'm going to say the shoulders the hips the gloves in other words you WanNa get in something that when it's crusher is which normally would make stiff and not and not flexible at all you want it to be flexible only in certain places. This is a nose of the mobility joints and that's the toughest part of the job especially the ones that are three dimensional like your shoulders. They rotate they move in three different planes like your elbow only goes in one direction that would be the easiest one the shoulder older would be the hardest one because vulnerability ranges and rotates etc so all of that is the most important for once the pressure sued envelope is done then you're merely insulating it so all the thermal insulation elation than all that stuff is kind of a second thought to the basic pressure suit itself okay so building something that was totally insulated in would keep them safe but didn't have to move around or be friendly to human motion would be easier easier. It seems like but you had to build something people can actually like walk around in other words <hes> see if I can come up with something well. It's like it. Let's say it's a scuba suit underwater but it does everything you want. It makes you feel as if you're not even in a suit we're trying tend to achieve the nude body ceiling and one is crushed theorized. You're working against pressure. The suit is extremely rigid everywhere and getting all that to work to human engineering part is the hardest part and the installation and all that stuff goes on the outside inside the keep you safe and of course has to accommodate the same emotion that the pressure envelope does well guy and is it obvious in the middle of building something like that that the things that you're working on are going to have application outside of just building space suits or are you so laser focused on that one thing that you're not even necessarily worrying. We were so laser focused. We wouldn't even know if there ever be another use. Their focus was as good as it could get for the job if it could be used in any other Claes. We didn't know we didn't care and it wasn't until the program was coming to an end to we started realizing that there could be many space spinoffs of this technology which in my case I specialized in at what point does it occur to you that Oh all this stuff. I've been working on might be interesting to other people who aren't just trying to survive in space pretty much at the end of the program I was there to Apollo Seventeen. We landed on the Moon Sticks Times Apollo Thirteen of course did not make it we also had done all the space suits for the Skylab Skylab program the N._A._S._D.. The Apollo Soya's docking with the Russians and the early versions of the space shuttle suits and at that time I decided to to move to Aspen Colorado take up skiing and go into commercial products so it was at that point really nineteen seventy three one thousand nine hundred seventy four that I started focusing on the knowledge that I had particularly materials information and human factors designed putting it into sports equipment because I had a background at playing basketball and running and I love sports in general you're just done at that point. You're like I have put people on the moon. It's the seventies. Where else can I use my skills? Yes moving to Aspen going into the ski. Industry was my goal in everything I did was based on skiing and then because I ended up specializing in ski boots which is the hardest article for skiing and more like the space since because the ski Buddhism rigid Shell which is non human the space suit on its pressurized. It's rigid that's non-human of adapting things like that to the human body and making them work so ski boots were the real big focus and I worked for four different companies Nordica Dina Fit Solomon and rightly and probably the biggest inventions from NASA spinoff was in the rightly flex on Ski boot which is the most popular model ever made sold between three and four hundred thousand pairs a year from nearly twenty years in it was based on the convoluted mobility joints of the space suits which are sort of like a bellows designed the Ben but in this case bending and rigid plastic for Ski Boot Versus Bending in inflated pressurized and therefore rigid confidence in in a spacesuit designed the Ben so the joints were like bellows and I put that mosquito boot so that was the first real major spin off that had a very very large commercial success also many other things like a nike athletic shoes for example. The blow molding net we used to make the visors with stress-free molding the consulates were made with the dipping process. We never use moulding techniques like injection molding and compression molding what you're used throughout industry because you have built in stresses so for example the Nike Air so was blow-moulded many of the products I've done the via compression chamber was blow molded at stress-free stronger better materials because of the pounding it takes under the seat like playing basketball in a Nike Shoe Shoo Shoo where you're coming down rebounds in the pounding etc to have the durability required some of the processes we use the spacesuits. Can you explain a little bit more about that actually because I think the idea of the way that we manufacturer shoes now is so different from what it was before that I think can you sort of help understand what shoes were like when you started working on them and kind of how you rethought the way they should be men well. You couldn't be more correct when I went into the shoe industry industry in the winter of nineteen seventy three seventy four. I saw shoes just ancient devices readily. Even if you go into the patent search on foot words it'll say shoes boots and leggings so just those titles give you an idea of how L. ancient my mind technologists shoes boots and leggings in here. I come out of NASA so I along with other people had everything to do. I believe with making the shoes what they are today. Often I did a presentation people say our just making shoes. We're not building spaceships. I said Oh yeah I think we are and that was my serious about does this. You know we keep hearing about you. Next generation space suits you see he's sleek designs. People talk about what we're going to need for Mars. It's going to have to be a quantum leap over while we add for the moon. What have you seen happening in industry like what are the big potential innovations the unlocking technologies it could get us these these <hes> sleeker suits? We're not gonNA have sleeker suits. Everyone will them of course we do to the astronaut's wanted the new feeling in a suit which we all do and I wasn't spacesuits probably more than any other engineer in the program just by designing finding them. They wanted to spray on things like that which are pipe dreams. We wanted them just as well but the reasons the suits can't can't be sleek as they has to be pressurized because there's no there's a vacuum in space and you gotTA provide livable atmosphere this fear inside of the spacesuit when you pressurize it. Everything wants to go circular. It's like blowing up a balloon.

You're actually want our congress to live up to their constitutional duties they've been ceding power to the executive and judiciary for decades. After all if you solve a problem. You can't campaign on it at the end of the day. And at the end of the day, they have to protect their phony baloney jobs. Yeah. There's a solution to this. Cheesy. There's a law passed by congress nine hundred ninety. The specifically gave this power to this or any other president. If they now feel that a president should not have this power fine. My my bet would be if they're constitutionalists at all you live four hundred and thirty five votes in the house and one hundred votes in the Senate to repeal that law and it would veto proof. Take back your constitutional responsibilities. But simply saying why voting against this because I'm afraid some democrat will do it. You're being a hypocrite Baltimore bunny says Bruce Lee Republicans excuse is that in the future a damn president might misuse the emergency clause, if they vote with Trump is perhaps the most pitiful excuse ever put forth by a group of elected officials. We are doomed. Well, we're sliding down the razor blade life. All right. Michael is in his car talking about the college scandal on this free for all Friday. Good morning. Michael. Good morning, sir. Vice to actresses get a well known lawyer and demand the Hillary treatment from the STI. Exoneration before interrogation. What are they got to lose at this point? Right back on the FBI. Here's something interesting on this Michael, by the way, Laurie loft. One of the two women who's involved in this who are celebrities. No names her daughters. Have now reportedly have no plans to return to USC over the fear of bullying. You see this? This is how they're going to play the innocent victims. And the only reason they're not going back a phrase being bullied wall. Perhaps they shouldn't go back because they're ashamed they're having got in without qualifications to be there. But no, that's not gonna go that way. No. Visit their best their best choice. Right now is the the FBI on the defense. Make them. Hillary treatment either easy to treat us like Hillary Clinton or we don't play right? I'm not sure they have that kind of this kind of. Coating that that seems to me that the the Clintons have this kind of not velcro. What's the stuff that? What is it called? Teflon, you know, the the the Clintons have this Teflon coating. I'm not sure the rest of us have that. But they can give it a try or they could tried to Justin smollet thing is we say, we didn't do it who gonna believe me or your lying eyes. So you have that choice to Michael thanks for your call. Appreciate it. Show. Talkradio six eighty WCBS to Jack in really, Jack. Good morning. Funchess button here. All right. Yeah. On you. Subject is I know about I'm a retired charter pilot and flew mostly doctors around the city. They wanna get in the car go. You have to date creek. Matter of fact, my co was a flight surgeon, and I do watch crashes on Sunday. And I'm gonna give you an example that happened to seven thirty seven and I've been checking on east too. And I think it applies it at and maybe we'll get some calls. A here's what happened. Now. We're going to checklist to get ready to take off. Okay. And they're saying close the door to door opens, which they broke one rule. They don't talk to the girl who's. It part aircrew and he's talking. She is talking to the person who just started on a plane and and the Jack Jack hold on a second. The two crashes that occurred recently, they weren't on the ground. I they were in the air were. Yeah. Cut right to the alright them to land the plane. Take off pray. You have to lower the flaps. Now, they were going down. And I'm one and slow, and I got a feeling that they didn't lower fat, Jack. Actually, the case was there's a computer software in this particular model playing that is supposed to fix mistakes in attitude at the plane's nose dips down too much. Instead, the computer software decided that it needed to go down some more. And that's what apparently caused a crash in both cases Boeing is actually working on that to see if that could come up with a fix. But. I think you gotta put the flaps down before you wanna go down. All right, Jack. Thanks for your call. And thanks for sharing your expertise on that. Audrey is important Norris, Audrey good morning. Good morning. How are you? I'm well. Thanks. I'll good this quick. Cain to derange. Joe McCarthy said this one communist it scares me to death. And and I'm telling you, that's what they wanna do to take over.

And everything it's you don't you think the students should have free fabric softener seems to me. That's just that's just a necessity of life. Why give myself kick, you know, where and I'll tell you something else. I need what they're giving everything away this country. They're gonna take the social security from the older people wanna take I'm here in the state what they're gonna do and don't trust Lindsey Graham leader of the pack. I heard how he ran Trump's down terrible. When he heard the Trump was just gonna run wicked at he can go below the well, Lindsey Graham, he's the worst a leader that that they're all communists down there except Trump. Okay. Thanks. I appreciate the call. Bruce Elliott show talk radio six eighty WCBS them, by the way, the Democrats. How many are running right now? I mean, they're like a dozen so far they have the prospect of and you're like, I think they're building a stage of the whole two hundred and thirty seven candidates if I recall correctly. Each of them will give ten seconds to answer a question. And they'll move on. Bernie Sanders was in South Carolina. And after practicing for weeks on how to properly pronounce the word infrastructure. He managed to use it in a sentence. Today, we say that in the wealthiest country in the history of the world. It is an embarrassment that our infrastructure. Our roads, our bridges our water systems, our wastewater plants. Our rail system is crumbling before our eyes. I mean, how you pronounce that word infrastructure, man. Just real you gotta give the guy props. He's working hard. I also said by the way. That the one thing that we're all getting wrong. Those of us who have questions about this is that climate change which by which he means human caused climate change climate change is real. And we have to do something about it yesterday. We say to Donald Trump and the fossil fuel industry that climate change is not a hoax, but is a massive unprecedented threat to our country and the entire planet the planet. He hasn't worked on how to pronounce entire yet. But after all he got infrastructure correctly. So that's. So certainly a feather in his cap talking about the green new deal, by the way speaker Pelosi. She says, well, you know, this is this is. It's a it's a it's. Listen raising the profile an issue, which is challenge generational to preserve this planet. It's a health issue of public health issue in terms of clean air, clean water. It's a jobs issue in terms of the United States being preeminent in green technology swept the world. It's a national security issue. Get I'm not quite sure why is a national security issue for us to be preeminent in green technology all over the world. But that is the litany. And of course, the woman behind the green new deal, the real leader apparently of the democrat party, Representative Alexandria, okay? So Curtis just love seeing the name. She says the green new deal, despite the price tag, which would bust this country completely the green new deal would be great for the US economy. The green new deal is.
U.S. unveils plan to control some toxins in drinking water, sets no limits
"One. We acting director of the Environmental Protection Agency was in Philadelphia today to announce what's being billed as the first ever national plan to address contaminants in drinking water found in high levels around military bases like the willowbrook naval air station. The bourbon bureau chief, Jim Melwert reports acting EPA director Andrew Wheeler caused the plan to address p Foshan drinking water comprehensive and all encompassing. The action plan commits EPA to take important steps that will improve how we research monitor attack and address P CPA's had an advisory level for P fos. But they've never said it enforceable. Limit Wheeler says they will set that limit buddy ads. They'll take until the end of the year to decide what that number should be environmental lawyer Mark cougar from upper Dublin says he's deeply disappointed by what he feels is an ongoing lack of action seven months ago. Residents of Horsham Warrington Warminster township poured their heart out to about horrible diseases birth defects grave concerns about the health of their children. This does nothing to address any of that state rep Todd Stevens says is a lifelong resident he welcomes EPA finally taking action. But as you said for years, though, he believes there should be zero tolerance of the chemicals and drinking water. Studies of their effects continue peeve. Family of chemicals found that all kinds of household items like Teflon or some fabrics. They were also in firefighting foam used at the willow grove naval air station
Bad Bosses, Crazy Coworkers and Other Office Idiots
"Joining. The Frankie Boyer show. It's been a while is Vicky Oliver, she's the author of bad bosses, crazy coworkers and other office idiots, can you can you're late to that. And three hundred one smart answers to tough into tough interview. And Vicky welcome back. It's a pleasure. Thank you so much for having me back. I really appreciate it. So, you know, we've heard your ear five books have always been. Really great pieces of information because we hear stories like this all the time. You cannot believe how crazy my bosses you cannot believe what I have to go through. You cannot believe my coworkers. We hear this all the time people are constantly complaining and talking about Justice subject, right and people come up to me all the time. And, you know, ask me if I could interview them for my book, and I'm like, well, unfortunately, it's published. Oh, yeah. Because they have stories have we got a story to you. So the reality is. We are not all in a position to take that job. And you know, what we're just not not real. And. And more importantly. Is going to be adversity as my mother. My late mother used to say at least, you know, the stripes in the and the dodger working with. Exactly. So share with us a little bit about how we deal with this. How do we deal with these leadership people, and how do we rise above it? I mean as a general rule, I think it really helps not to take things personally. Let's say you spend all weekend working on a project for your break. And then your boss comes in. And it's like, oh, thank you know. And then doesn't seem to acknowledge like all the work that you put in to that project. A lot of times it really pays to say. You know, what this is his problem that he doesn't know how to give positive feedback. It's not a reflection on me. It's not a reflection on my work. And if you can sort of hold that in your thoughts and not be insulted. You know, when somebody doesn't complement Yale on all the hard work that you've done I think you're gonna do better. You know, another thing is to remember that you're there to solve problems and not to create a problem. And sometimes when we. I feel sensitive about the way a person's treated us. We are inadvertently creating a problem. You know, our personality is becoming problematical you were too sensitive. So a lot of times just to have like a Teflon coating think of your home. As as like inoculating yourself against the toxicity that exists in your workplace. I think you'll do better. That's really great advice. Really great advice because the truth is is that. I think there's also a place where you have to become comfortable knowing that this job is not going to give you the. All of the compliments you can have to find a way to get them. Elsewhere or or understand that this is what you have to do in order to survive. Right. You have to sort of be your own boss, even if you are working in an organization with eight bosses ahead of you above you. You know, you have to almost say to yourself. I am my own boss. Treat yourself as an entrepreneur within the workplace loves. Yes. You would you've done a good job. Yes. That's really great information.
"teflon" Discussed on The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap
"Yeah. I think you look it's we live in very polarized times. And so I mean that's out there for sure I mean, I think you know, most people who are associated with the league. And that's obviously, you know, what the what the the series follows. It's not just the players, but it's the executive. It's the commentators. It's the fans, and and so we talked a lot of those people. And, you know, look, they are they probably fall disproportionately on one side of that argument. But I definitely think you know, that is out there. But it's it's interesting with the league, I mean to LeBron is a perfect example is he's the best player, you know, he in in the league, but he's outspoken off of it. I mean, he campaigned for Hillary Clinton and look at it as we know. Now, there's a significant part of this popular country who, you know, stand stood in direct Incheon stood in direct opposition to that. And yet like LeBron kinda has a sort of Teflon players in the league have somewhat of a Teflon like, you know, you can be outspoken. You can even and the crowd though, audience can disagree with you. But they don't necessarily take it out on you in the same way. They may would say calling confident. That's good segue because I'm wondering house LeBron James feel about Colin Kaepernick what he decided to do a couple of years ago and. He's dealing with now. Well, I look I certainly don't want to you know, speak for him. But I think you know, if you look he's been you know, he's publicly supported him. I think there is a relationship there as well. It's complicated. Because you know, the dynamics of the league are very different. But I think, you know, in general like if you look at athletes as activists, and you know, you look at what the you know, LeBron doing this series. Lebron some of the other stuff he's done. I think that's proof that you know, he's on the side of those guys who are using their platform to to try to speak for something got some Chopra's director of the new documentary series for Showtime shut up in dribble. Goth really been a pleasure. Having you here on the sporting life. I hope you can join us again sometime soon. Thanks so much. This is the sporting life on ESPN radio.

"teflon" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"Just for you. And what's cooking today, bro? What are we gonna do? This wonderful wonderful. Our? Water softener one. Oh, one that seems very you've got I have to tell you something. I didn't realize we were gonna do water softener one. Oh one today. I have a story for you. And a little later on the hour autumn safety tips for your furry friends. An that must mean puppies and kitties. But I have a story, and I have to share it with you. I think you're gonna love this one because it affects us personally. Because of something we learned when we were doing the, home and home and family TV show. Do you remember the leak we had in the plummeting at the home and family TV show? The leak we had in the plumbing in the drain. I don't and a plumber from. Oh, yes. Do you? Remember, they asked of course, you remember what we did to fix the, of course. I do I've been using that product Everson. Did we use I use left liquid liquid Tefft lift they've right? Let us let me say I use Teflon in a tube. Yes. And it also comes in a little bottle now plastic bottle. K by put it on my finger, and I make sure that all of the grooves the thrall of the threads were filled are well filled. I gotta tell you something a friend of mine called me on Friday. And he said Morris he said, I'm chest fit to be tied. And I don't know what to do. He said, I just installed a new. Water softener and it's leaking like a sieve at the supply line. So I said I'll be right over. So I went over his house, and he turned the water supply on and I could see it just a so turn the water off. It's devastating. You know, there are few things in my. Construction work that are more devastating. I see I don't do much electrical work. So I don't have that trepidation. But a leak plumbing work and a leak doing doing all of that work. And then having a leak is just devastating whether it's pressure or drain. It's just something that you know, because it can cause so much damage. So go ahead. So. I said, let's take it apart and take a look at what's going on. And so we unbolted turn the water off unbolted the supply line, and I looked into the supply line. This thing was the supply line with ancient he said, the supply line has been here since I bought the house when it was built eighteen years ago. Well, that's not ancient eighteen years for for a metal fitting that's pretty long period of time. And so we I looked inside the fitting. And of course, it was one of those a gasket had fittings rubber gasket fitting Lycos fitting, right? You know, where the rubber sits on the and makes the seal, and I looked inside the metal part. And there was no gasket oh disintegrated when he removed the old. Tank. So I said, you're gasket has gone. I said what we can do is. We can go to the store and look for some gaskets, and I looked and they didn't look like conventional gaskets. This was a real odd ball. So we went to the hardware store and couldn't find a one inch fan. Because all the water heater fittings and all of that. Or now. Three quarter inch. So we had to buy adapters and all of this. And we put a brass adapter onto the plastic fittings. And we wrapped it a lot three times with Teflon tape. And then we put the. Wrap the pipe a male and of the water supply line three quarter inch put it into the fitting tightened it all down turn the water on and it leaked. Took it all off again, re wrapped everything with Teflon took it off again re wrapped in the third time. I said to Mike I said, Mike. Teflon tape just isn't working. Said I have to go to a project meeting. I can come back later on tonight. In the meantime, go to the hardware store and buy some Teflon liquid Teflon. And I and I showed him what to do and where to put it and how to do it. And he said, okay, I will. So I got out of my meeting that night. I guess six or seven o'clock I had actually two three hour meetings. And I called him right away soon as I got out of my how to go, Mike everything works. Great this liquid Teflon did the trick. Yeah. So I'm I'm tending after this experience 'cause Teflon usually holes. But this was a plastic to metal connection. And the Teflon tape would not work at the plastic to metal right, but by Flon putty, but the Teflon putty did okay. And I had told Mike put the Teflon putty on the male portion of the threads all over wipe it all over and then put it in the female portion of the threads on the adapter, which he was going to install. He said I did that I put it on. I tightened it gently. They told him, you know, if you tighten it too tight, you can break the plastic fitting nylon, and she said, I was very gentle with it. He said it never leaked a drop with that Teflon. Putty. It's wonderful. So here's the deal Teflon tape cost ninety cents. Okay. Teflon putty costs four dollars, right? But you get what you pay for.

Or I call it activation step one, getting the some playing installation is step two or internalisation step two or a nice, simple way to remember. It is step one is the state, the feeling that thought the body sensation the action. The intention step one is a state, step twos trait. You're trying to grow the trait traits are what you take with you. Wherever you go. The conditions change around you. People disappoint situations can fall apart, the traits you carry with you are what you can count on and the most important minutes days of your life. Okay. So what is the what? How do you do. How do you, how do you go? Oh, I gotta go. I'm really sorry. I've Ken stringing you along. And also ought to be really plays funny, let the context. You don't have a therapist, meditate or a nice guy on the one hand on the other hand, man. Oh, man. The framework for me about all this is very tough minded. It recognizes how challenging life is how often people will let you down, not everybody, but most people tend to disappoint eventually and also we'll get into a little bit later as a psychologist. I've learned about what scientists call the negativity by the brain I call it. It's like velcro for bad experiences, but Teflon Goodwin's. So to build to deal with just life in general and up and say, for the reins negativity bias, we really need to grow strengths inside. So even though I haven't nice guy, there's something very tough minded. And at the bottom here at as unit are talking about really the essence of self reliance. So that's the framework care when I can. We Paul, I, I want to actually dive into the negativity bias. It was one of. My questions as mentioned about what, what is it? Exactly. Yeah, very version p the to experience. Imagine you're in a relationship with your boss, your partner, your friend, ten things happen in a day. Nine or positive ones? Negative. What do you remember when you're falling asleep? What do you obsess about? What do you want to write an Email about it to in the morning would really are Tate's you what moves the needle? What effects the relationship? For example, I'm dealing with someone right now. I've known for quite a while mainly possibly, but recently they've just gone off the rails and that's very consequential. So the the result of that, the reason for the negativity bias, volition, as our ancestors were talking six hundred million years of evolution of the nervous system sitting on life before that, so they needed to get carrots and avoid sticks. Carrots, like food mating opportunities sticks. Like I say, to my wife, hey, Honey, how. A meeting opportunity by have never done that. That would be a little. Anyway. Where sticks like predators, Aurora aggression, aggression between bands inside bans. And here's the difference though. If you don't get care today, you'll have a chance to win tomorrow. But if you fail to avoid that stick today, whack. No more carrots forever. So the brain I'll just rip through does these five things automatically and you can see it in your own experience as you move through your day one, we scan for bad news. We're always canning for bad news around us in our bodies, even in our minds in relationships. What could go wrong? What's miss saying? Where's the pain? Who's mad at me? Now, where are they? I don't know where my kids are. They could get killed scan for bad news. Second, we overreact, we focus upon it soon as anything goes wrong. That's always see, and we lose sight of the big picture. That's why positive emotions and wellbeing in general, helps to see the big picture. Thirteen that happens. We overreact to people react more. Lou. Using something then to gaining the same thing. People react more to pain the to pleasure. We overreact to it. The brain reacts more intensely. Third, fourth, that whole package is immediately fast in a memory once burned twice shot..
