Introduction to Cob: The Ancient, Natural, Tiny House Building Method with Dave Olsen

"Am here with dave olsen olsen completed. A cobb workshop led by younto evans in nineteen ninety-six and has had mud and sour dough on his hands ever since he began hosting natural building workshops in two thousand seven began instructing the revolutionary fast cobb mixing and building methods in two thousand nine and turned fifty in twenty thirteen based on off the grid. Sketti island he also hosts an apprenticeship. That goes well beyond natural building. Helping people develop responsible and environmentally sustainable lifestyles with enjoyment and ease. Dave has been very fortunate to have worked with many of the leading. Cobb builders of our time and to have a dynamic cobb and bicycle loving daughter and dogs dave olesen. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me either. Yeah it's great great to have you here. I feel like we've been following each other for years and years And we've we've traded some email so it's great. I'm actually getting to see your face for the first time here on the zoom. Yeah thank. i'm so glad to finally connect directly likewise like why so we're going to have to start with with the real basics. What is cop well. Cobb is a mixture of sand clay and straw that you mix together with water. So it's a it's a very simple Creation some people might say that. It's you have to have a specific ratio of each of those ingredients. I don't the the one ingredient. That's unbelievably flexible. As the cly or should you can have as little as five to ten percent. I don't know exactly how little you can go. And all the way up to one hundred percent though. The smallest amount is the amount that is needed to make the sand stick together. And the and the straw okay. So and when you say percentage you're referring to the percentage of the clay in soil the material that you're using to actually build the walls. The percentage of that material so anywhere between five to ten to one hundred percent lay in. I say one hundred percent. I've never built with one hundred percent. Clay only because A wonderful man who came to one of my workshops told me about it and showed me books and in korea. They've been building klay houses for hundreds of years. And so maybe even thousands of years so it obviously worked the but cobb specifically is designed to be The material is meant to have Sanding in it so so you know if you don't have very much sand that's okay. You have a lot of clay. that's okay but if you have a lot of sand and not so much clay it has to stick together of course otherwise. You're not going to have a building that stands up so you know very Nonspecific answer of because at least certainly in the workshops but in my own personal experience we just experiment with what we have to make it as easy as possible. Because that's really. The goal of this is the not only make something. That's unbelievably resilience. Long-lasting nontoxic unbelievably hugely outperforming. Any other building. That i've ever known but just to make it really quick easy and simple as possible. So i guess my follow up question. We've got the kind of literal definition of. What is cobb run. I guess what is ours. Cobb used in homebuilding it. What do you what do you do with the cobb. yeah Literally like you can see you re up there that those are called walls so in the building that i'm sitting in i live in The walls and the floor omega of certainly don't recommend building a roof out of conned Simply because cobb will absorb water and when it does absorb it will loosen or lesson it strength and so Building a dome out of cobb is would be a foolish thing to do in the climate. I loop in live in and i don't know of any climates. Actually were be suitable. So i wouldn't try that. So certainly some non cobb materials are needed for any building that you do build but the vast majority of the material for this Building this house is cobb because the walls are afoot to eighteen inches thick and Run from florida ceiling and the floor is completely off. The second floor is all. Would i considered putting a cobb floor on top of a wooden some floor but the same principle even though it's inside very likely to stay perfectly dry but if it doesn't or if there's a lot of vibration i just haven't tested a second floor cobb floor so you know out of my realm of experience but But yet no to lessen the cost of any building if you build it cobb. It's guaranteed to lower the cost. Because literally cobb is thirteen so i love the pond and i invite you to make as many cobb puns as you wish. This interview are there any climates. I was gonna ask what pilots do clock. What climates does cobb work in but it sounds like almost i should ask the opposite like are there any clients that cobb doesn't work in. I would be surprised. If there was a climate that doesn't work in Really hot climates. It's amazing in terms of keeping the building. Cool because it literally. It's just a totally different kind of building than what most civilized people are used to right. We're used to often wooden or metal buildings that kinda shredded trap. The air at least for heating and even for cooling i imagine condos and do that conferees It's constantly breathing. It doesn't it's not drafting. You feel it breathing. The air can get through the walls and Some very very slow transfer so you never get sick building syndrome in a call building which is really nice and The way that it performs as it. It's like a thermal battery so when there's heat in the air around it it will absorb that heat and Old it basically until the era rounded is cooler than the cobb and which case than it releases eat so it really moderates the temperature especially of the inside of the building that of any building. That's made out of cobb. So and that's what. I'm just enjoying in our climate here. We have a climate where in the extreme parts of the summer. It's quite warm. It can get up to thirty degrees celsius and probably over one hundred degrees fahrenheit and it's never uncomfortably hot inside our home ever doesn't matter how hot it gets outside in the winter. We we don't have a deep freeze At all so not makes building foundations here easier but It still gets to be about raising and between zero and ten degrees celsius all winter. And so and it's very humid so it's still quite cool in terms of human living and so we have a rocket. Mass heater that keeps our floor are cog floor which then emanates that keet throughout the home and so our feeder was warm or bodies are warm and the where cobb comes in is overnight when the fires coach the cov will Emanate warmth back into the building so even though it can be down to zero overnight In the morning it's bill sixteen degrees inside the house even though it was only maybe twenty twenty two degrees when the fire went up

Harness Light to Defeat the Winter Blues

The Savvy Psychologist's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Mental Health

Harness Light to Defeat the Winter Blues

"The winter blues can sap your energy disrupter sleep and destroy your concentration but turns out. There's a simple key a secret weapon if you will to defeating it and that's light. Welcome back to savvy psychologist. I'm your host. Dr wu and every week all help you meet. Life's challenges with evidence based research a sympathetic ear and zero judgment today. We're gonna talk about the magic of late for your mental health. Especially in the winter months winter can be beautiful time of holiday. cheer gorgeous. Snowshoes escapes and fun activities like sledding and skiing but even with all this fun. Some people can't help but experience. The winter blues their mood takes a dip in the fall and winter. Even when life is otherwise going well and for about three percent of people this mood downturn is so severe that they have something called seasonal affective disorder. They not only feel blue but they also experience loss of interest in things that they usually like unusual tiredness or sluggishness trouble sleeping a tendency to overeat and gain weight difficulty concentrating and thinking clearly and even feelings of hopelessness or sometimes even having suicidal thoughts. So why does this happen. And is there a way to beat these seasonal blues and seasonal depressive episodes. The secret might lie in light. That's right this free resource that comes from our son. Plants rely on soaking up light to make food and grow but it turns out that we animals need light to our biology is so wrapped up late. That are metabolism mood. Thinking are all affected. So here's some things to know about. Why light is important for mental health and how to harness it for better health and happiness especially in the winter months first thing to know. Is that our mood is intimately tied to light the winter blues and seasonal affective disorder. Don't just happen to people because they don't like winter. There's actually a biological reason for winter. Depression and here's a clue. The people most susceptible to winter induced depression are those living far from the equator. And that's because living. Farther away from the equator means you get even fewer daylight hours in the wintertime and because there's less daylight during fall and winter. The body's circadian rhythm gets disrupted. Late is the single most powerful factor in tuning the spotty clock and with less and less of it as we move from fall to winter the body's natural rhythms can become less robust. So that's bad news for your mood. Metabolism cognitive functioning and many other body systems that play a role in depression. It's also possible that less sunlight leads to a drop in serotonin of brain chemical that's for regulating moot. So the good news. And that's the next thing to know. Is that by artificially adding light to our lives. We can actually combat the winter blues. Numerous studies have shown that something as simple as using light box can decrease symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. Ideally you want a full spectrum light source such as the light box designed for this treatment by even a very bright ball from the hardware store can help so. The standard treatment involves using the light for about thirty minutes each morning if it has a brightness level of about ten thousand lux or for about one to two hours if it has a brightness level of twenty five hundred bucks for comparison ten thousand locks is on the low end of ambient daylight whereas an overcast. Day is about one thousand bucks to avoid hurting. Your eyes don't stare directly into the lake instead. Have it off set about thirty degrees from gays and about two feet away. You can have your breakfast check email or enjoy morning. Podcast like the savvy psychologist. Perhaps while you have your box on bright light therapy improves your mood. By regulating your circadian rhythms and increasing serotonin. What's especially great about this treatment. Is that it can be easily combined with medications or other treatments without interfering or introducing side effects. There are studies showing that bright light. Therapy can be combined with taking an antidepressant for an extra boost. Even people with year round depression. We talked already. About how bright light can improve your mood and decrease symptoms of seasonal affective disorder and also just general depression year round. Now let's talk about how it not only helps with the winter blues but also would sleep and daytime fatigue so when it comes to sleep bright light. Therapy may have an even more direct effect often. Those with depression especially seasonal depression also have later krono types meaning that they are biologically wired to want to sleep and wake later than the average person this means. They're dealing with a double whammy during winter. They have both a depressed mood and a harder time getting in the morning. Luckily doing bright light therapy first thing in the morning can help to shift night. Owls biological clocks earlier improving how they sleep at night. And how alert and refresh. They feel in the morning.

Lunar Water is More Abundant Than Previously Thought

"Astronomers have discovered that water maybe far more abundant on the moon than previously thought water is is already being detected on the permanently shadowed floors of craters neither Luna polls with some never reaches and signatures for hydroxy polls that he's molecules made up one hydrogen and one oxygen atom has been detected on the lunar surface now, and you study reported in the Journal. Nature Astronomy is confirmed that water molecules comprising one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms. Good outage to uh-huh has been found in lunar regular. Even sunlit areas of the Moon, the observations were made by Sophia the stratospheric observatory for infrared astronomy a converted Boeing seven, four, seven SP airliner fitted with a two point seven meter infrared reflect telescope. The observatory which is operated by Nassar and the German Aerospace Centre de la was able to detect the molecules in the Moon Southern Hemisphere Safiya Project Site Alexandra Roy from dealer says scientists have been looking for water on the moon ever since the first lunar rocks were brought back to earth in the nineteen sixties. However evidence it's been hard to come by the first confirmation of Luna, water came in two thousand and eight from this moon. Meteorology Mabuhay aboard the Indian Chan One spacecraft which detected frozen on the shaded floors of Doc. Paula. Craters Sophia was able to identify the mistake fingerprint of water molecules in the mid infrared range at a wavelength of six micrometres in the vicinity of the the crater in the moon southern fear, and that raises some interesting questions where did the water in these non polar regions come from and how come it can persist in these areas without an atmosphere surface temperatures can read something like two hundred and thirty degrees. Celsius hot enough to cause water to evaporate under the hate of the light of Sun. Now, it's possible that micrometeorites which are. Constantly falling onto the lunar surface I carrying small quantities of water which deposited the lunar rocks during collisions. In the process, the water becomes enclosed in tiny glass bead like structures in the ground. Another idea involves a two stage process in which hydrogen from the solar wind riches the lunar surface combined with hydroxyl molecules on the ground to form water molecules. The data required by Safiya indicates that most of this water being detected so far lies within the substrate covering the lunar surface. Now, we're not talking about much Roy estimates. It's about the. Equivalent of a three mealy milliliter. A can of drink spread a resurface area, the size of a football pitch in reality, it means the moon still dry than the desert's of earth, but the quantity of water that's been discovered could still prove important future missions to the moon severe. We'll now observe the moon sunlit surface during different. Luna faces to investigate this water phenomenon in greater detail sinus that this will open up a new insight into where the water on the moon comes from how it's stored and how it's distributed across the surface. Meanwhile a second study also reported in the journal Nature Astronomy modeled areas of the lunar surface cast in permanent shadow finding that these so-called cold traps contain at least twenty percent of all the water is on the moon it seems small scattered. Cold trips are scattered across the lunar polar regions and could provide accessible water resources which could be used for drinking for making oxygen for breathing and making oxygen and hydrogen for rocket fuel. One of the study's authors. No, but Shraga, offer from the Planetary Science Institute says Future Lunar Rovers may have a hard time driving into date dot craters. With extremely low temperatures but smaller cold traps would be far more accessible. He says approximately ten to twenty percent of the cold trap area for water is fantasy contained within microcode traps must witcher less that a major across the discovery changes sciences perspective of water on the Moon, which until now is focused on the largest water as was situated within the broadest deepest craters at high latitudes astronomer. Johnny Horner. From the University of southern Queensland says these latest discoveries of water on the moon will play a major role in the autumn missions returning humans to the lunar surface in twenty twenty four. Ways, you can look at of them that he's much more general and the people took much. It's what really shattering this myth, the Walter Scott in the innovest, which is something that's been a bit of bath mindset. A couple of decades since got my career Walter is everywhere. It's just it's Walter ice rather than liquid. Well, what we found over the last decade of so it's the most lessons that we look the more West finding. Walter, in it never imagined, we're announcement of Wall Toronto Mercury it will not last thing to look what we're finding. The. Central Time there is Walter. The colts of the mode have been confirmed on the mall, the compound as more water than people my. Locations way will be able to access that won't actually from a technology on down the line I'm not hungry exciting locations, the future of kind of human space exploration particularly from the point of view I've going places and then creating your own fuel back to go on from that, which if you do that, it says a huge amount of because if you only continues feel. You've lost fueling. To take with you for whatever future and he wants to attack the problem is that launching prevented big Strong gravitational. You've got much better as well. So every time you wanted few, you've been going to use more fuel to launch fuel. So you have this kind of runaway way.

"Hottest temperature perhaps ever recorded certainly the the best the highest verify temperature on the planet earth was this week in death valley in Furnace Creek. Where they got a temperature of one hundred and thirty degrees Fahrenheit or I think it was fifty four point one degrees, Celsius. Which is Crazy to hunt. Every. So often they have these these heat waves that come through valley, and so there was always a news team there and they try to fry an egg in a frying pan. Just. Left out in the Sun. And I just before we got on I was watching CNN try to do this and it actually didn't really work. They had like a black frying pan and they cracked an egg and like some of the white parts of the egg started to cook and that was it. Needs to get harder than I think. Maybe we we cook we cook eggs on the honor of cars in the outback Australia. Come on. That's the whole. On the WHO'D I believe that I absolutely believe that that is something that that would be done in the outback and lift game devali come on. In. Don't. Live up to your name. Here's the question. Gary. Is EVERY TIME You know a record like this sat I mean it's like, okay, that's interesting. But is there a larger context? You get half the people out there? Who will say, Hey, look it's global warming. It's hotter than it's ever been. Or is it just that every? So often the earth rotates a certain way in a cloud goes a certain direction or a butterfly flaps, its friggin wings or whatever, and it's just happens to be really hot I mean. Is this one of those things that happens in everybody has to make thing out of it will one way or the other. I think you look at average temperatures if you wanNA global warming just so you know we talk about this being the hottest temperature. As far as I could tell, the hottest temperature ever recorded was in death valley and one hundred and thirty, four back in one thousand, nine, hundred, thirteen. So I can't quite figure out why everybody's reporting. This is the highest temperature ever and then even sometimes in that article saying since. Like, you can't be ever. In the same article let yeah. Yeah, that's that's why we used to have something called journalism was actually check out those facts but I think just things that you've always been into journalism even where the person writing the headline is not the person writing the story. Right, there's a reason. It's because the temperature is was not really well verified in. There was a lot of doubt because it was nine thirteen and there were other temperatures in the region that kind of put it in doubt and there were other high temperatures. Like there was one in Libya from like over one hundred years ago and another one from. Iran that were both called into question. Because of the readings and the Russian judge. Exactly. Like there, there are all these records for the oldest human and the tallest human. Sure. And if you go back in time, there are people that claim Oh there were nine feet tall and they live to be two hundred years old and then you check up on, it's like bowel not really and I think a lot of it is that that we just have better. Ability to measure the stuff now, and so this temperature is if if if it's not the highest, it's certainly the highest that they can verify to a great deal of certain. Some curious that hundred and thirty degree day. What was the low for the day on? Fifteen. Oh, probably, much lower than that because death valley is so arid. Yeah. So here, for instance, we're doing of really close to one hundred degrees. Our lows are going to be probably in the sixties. It's extreme. Yes. That's pretty typical for us because we just don't have the humidity and death valley even a little less humid than we are. Yeah I've actually experienced temperatures close to this twice. In Australia. In Ethiopia in the depression, which is a lot like death valley, and then once in Australia I was. visited. Who in the middle of the summer and it was close to fifty degrees. Celsius it was. Right he'd it wasn't bad if you're in the shade and had a fan on.

"Whole over WANNA. Welcome to another episode of this week in travel. My Name is Gary coming to you from the lovely state of Wisconsin where I have nothing but beer cheese and brought were since I have arrived. And that is legally the only thing you can eat here we've been or not. That chuckling voice you hear in the background coming from the land of smoke Mr Chretien. It's not just smoke also smoke fire and really hot but other than that. It's a lovely time to be in California. You don't say really in California you'd have flares. Wow. We have guest we had over the last three days. I just saw the number I. Think it's ten thousand different lightning strikes. Ten Thousand Eight, hundred, and forty, nine in a state that tends to get one thunderstorm every three years. So that's a little unusual for us. So you're making up for lost time. That is correct I believe it's also possibly the end of days that is. We're expecting frogs next. It's twenty twenty. I. Think those guys are going to get nailed with just a massive earthquake. This year I was one of the Salton Sea and they said, you know that's the kind of one of the anchor points of San Andreas fault so could happen. It. would be the capstone in this year. It would just you know. I. Think I things that could happen. But yeah. Well, speaking of which the man will go into the sea when that earthquake happens Mr Spud Hilton. From San Francisco. He's he's technically on the North America Plate. The senator is just misses San Francisco. At thank you for Thanks for pointing that out that that is great comfort. Father had a theory that everything from the San Andreas Fault East would fall into the Pacific Ocean. Your father was rather unsuccessful land speculator is this. Yeah. He he hopes trade I think that was pretty much the deal so We're doing okay here in San Francisco but I'll tell you sky is never been a well, not never been hasn't been this color in a couple of years put that way. It reminds me of the last time I was in a in New Delhi. They were burning the fields. It's it's that sort of thing. I'll here. It's just nice. It's like in the seventies everyday and it's just it's just really nice. Panther Schools? In all seriousness there they had a vote wants to what to put on the license plate in one of the options was. Which I really supported. Packer fans you'll ever that I'm sure our guest. This week are two of the most all American. American people I know of America's Tim Tamsin Meat Pies. Gene Craig Makepeace. From. Why Travel Pod? We're doing pretty good. We actually in Raleigh north. Carolina and we had north quite last week. Yeah own tropical storms earthquakes we got it all. Tony Warnings Yeah we're pretty. Steady. Well. I have a theory that everything evens out in terms of like bad weather. So like California you may you know have earthquakes But. Other than that. It's just really nice So you have it very nice and then you have these punctuated really bad things and here it's just kinda crappy like every year and that sort of what evens it out. So. I. Think it all. It's just in what sort of dose you get it. But yeah expose you guys didn't sign up earthquakes when he went to North Carolina. Now, we're expecting nine hundred. Ninety trimmers you know luckily, we're actually on insight forty on the way to the bank so we didn't feel anything. We escaped with a couple of hours best leave. Well. Let's go to our first news story while we're on the subject of. Extreme weather. the hottest temperature perhaps ever recorded certainly the the best the highest verify temperature on the planet earth was this week in death valley in Furnace Creek.

Overnight RV Parking at churches

"Everybody welcome to another edition of the podcast. This is episode three away and we are your guide, the freedom and funding through RV travel no matter what kind of an Rv you have whether it's a motor home or A. Trailer a tent. Maybe you're just dreaming about getting an RV someday. Well, listen up because this podcast is for you here. We talk about getting out there enjoying God's amazing. Meeting interesting people, Boondock King Mooch dot game, discovering fun places, and always using the right gear in technology to enhance the RV lifestyle. So Welcome, we are very honored that you chose to put us in your ears this week. Where we got lots. Lots of information for you this week besides. Our interview coming up about this new service that lets our ears overnight in church parking lots. You know they're always a little bit further away from the interstates not so noisy not so brightly lit. I think you'll find this really neat to service to especially when you realize the services free and the Churches there might be a little fee, but it's very little. We also got nuts RV news of the week an interesting question if you ever worried about mice getting in your RV's we're GonNa talk about that and get a lot of crowd sourced wisdom about it and our friends the Burkitt's stop by with. Another great off the beaten path report but I my lifelong traveling companion and my bride Jennifer. I'm a deer Hello Michael Well. We're about ready to hit the road again. This time we're going to be cruising around southwest Michigan exploring some out of the way campgrounds and one of my think is located on a great little inland lake. We're GONNA CHECK OUT I'm looking forward to see I am too because the weather is perfect. The heat that we have had in the mid West has been replaced by beautiful blue skies and temperatures in the low to mid seventies today and lack of humidity. No humidity Kinda cool. At night we can sleep at the windows open instead of the air conditioning on the RV but I think the heat is coming back for the weekend. Yes I think it is I know really have the heat out. West Holy Cow. If you looked at the study death valley, I think set a world record ever hundred and thirty degrees. Can you imagine that? I wouldn't want to be there. We wasn't a hundred and fifteen. Yeah we've been I think we were even up close to one hundred twenty and when we were in. Bahrain in the Middle East one time. And that was pretty miserable. A lot of our military folks stay up there. Yeah. Southwest. Michigan's where we're headed, and then we're going to go down to Elkhart Indiana the RV capital of the world. And we're going to work on a little project based on one of you or ideas. My idea was that we get some netting to keep both from trying to push his way in the front between the two of us. If you've been watching our videos, you see that Bo are Norwegian elkhound is used to Kinda stand between the two seats and the sprinter based lay down. Yeah. He could actually lay down in there. Well, it's not quite so roomy in the cab between the two seats in our new. Ford Transit based Wonder Lisa Travel Vans unit so Kinda. Then this battle, he wants to push his way there he can't. He can't turn A. Good it's just a total safety has and we get dirty looks from him all the time and he's mad at me for taking a seat. So we're going to he likes to be the COPA. So we're going to Jennifer has an idea and we're GonNa, we'll tell you more about it. We'll. We'll do a video on it if it works. If it doesn't work, we'll just pretend we never had brought this up but with a metal gate that we. And and it was kind of bulky and you don't want that banging around and figuring something soft won't scratch anything or damage any get some challenges because it's gotta get mounted just so but. We're working with some friends and we'll. We'll tell you all about that as we get as we get down there. But that's that's our plans for this week hitting the road and doing some camping in some fun stuff and working on Jennifer's idea you know you might have come up with a real solution that they ended up selling who knows yeah we could call it the Jennifer. The bonus most people put their dog in a crate and. A crate though now, but he's a harness and you know and just attach him securely back there. So don bounce around but but first step F is to get him from going up front and trying to push his way in. We're also really excited we're. Planning an extended trip to Michigan's peninsula. But we're going to kind of wait a little bit everybody's camping right now last hurrah before school and work in the fall and whatever that's going to look like during this pandemic gone for controversy that's out there what's open? What's not but I have never heard of so many people I've been talking to that are going to go up to the upper peninsula. I know we have to stop talking about. And Yeah Everybody's Oh. We're going. Oh, that's out. Now you've had your chance come on. It's our turn last governor gave you a certificate for promoting tourism, all their Michigan Yeah Yep I'll actually we got that from a friend of ours who worked in the governor's office, but the governor signed. Yes, so So camping in southwest Michigan visit to Elkhart. That's another media agenda, and then I think right after Labor Day in the crowds hopefully because EPI- is very crowded right now. Hopefully, the crowds diminish a little bit after Labor Day and then we're going to. Spend as much time maybe till first frost up there. So September little bit October we're going to get up and have a lot of fun up in the UP. We've not been up there for about a well not. Since January winter camp out. So we're anxious to get up and have some fun

One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

From Glassblower to Software Developer using Free Coding Resources with Michael Pimentel

"And we're back in today's episode. I speak with Michael, Pimentel. Michael Story is fascinating worked in the glassblowing industry specifically for film sets for nine years before he started teaching himself how to Code. And what makes him even more? Interesting is the fact that he doesn't have a college degree. Anti never went to a coding bootcamp. He is entirely self-taught. and. That is exactly what we're GONNA be talking about today. How he taught himself to code. WOW, working fulltime. How guys first job in tack and how he got more roles in the tech industry as time went on. If you tips for staying motivated while learning how to Code. This episode is for you enjoy. Hey. Michael. Thank you so much for coming on the show today. It will on six February I'm real excited to talk with you. You have like interesting. Self taught experience in. That's what I would like to dive into I. Could you share with us how you got started in software engineering? Absolutely so kind of Story kind of goes back to a few years ago when I was working for a company that made life for the film industry now working there as a manufacturer glassblowing really interesting work. Kind of working in a manufacturing type of shop warehouse, loud, working on a lay, that spun in a really hot environment I was there for a really long time and things just. Kinda didn't progress in terms of career. Wise and financially it was just really typical I live in California and California being one of the most expensive place live. It just wasn't sustainable. married and I have a child and that it just wasn't something that I could maintain so it kind of motivated me to start thinking I need to. Probably either go back to school or another another route career choice so i. can you know build to support and have a career that can provide general finance, support and everything like that, so it kind of led me to back to. My interest in computers and everything like that, so I started to do some online, searching and everything like that and it. Brought me to software development coding, you know some booming career choice that is really big right now and everything like that was like okay. Maybe I should go back to school for that, but at the time it really wasn't the best option I went acted. As a couple of glasses time, that's what I could afford at my community college, and then just got really difficult to maintain a full-time job and take one or two classes, and it got really expensive, because my wife was what was going to school in college and everything like that, so it was really difficult for us to support both less going especially you know. Not really knowing what I wanted to do. So I I did a lot of searching and I came across recode camp and recode camp. You know like when you get on their landing page. It's like learning one to code for free and always people learn this way and I was like wait three. This isn't make sense. This will usually scams off there. Start off Rian. Then you have to pay something and everything like that and you know to my surprise actually was free, and then so I started I jumped right in, and just started to go to the curriculum, and it sparked my interest and I was like. Wow, this is really cool. It's it kind of. Goes about in a way that. Gets you interested really quickly? You know with hd Mounsey assassin how you can get feedback on the webpage really quickly. Let's kind of how it started because I. Just I just couldn't go. That route was a canoe into school because it was just really expensive and I already had like a car loan, I couldn't get like student loan. It was just wasn't really practical. It's like cave. Do put myself some really extreme debt that I don't know if it's GonNa lead to something. That's GONNA pay in the end so I had to find another option and looked like learning to code on my own free resources when that resource beginning with recode camp was was the route I took. Awesome so I, want to backtrack a little bit to your. Your work before you got into coding, so you you okay? You said he was a manufacturing role. I haven't made notes that you were a glass blower which anti note that is for movies today shows. Definitely. What is it glasses? Sure okay, so a glass blower, typically like of someone like Google glass large usually someone that takes some raw material which consists of the materials, t make glass essentially depending on what what the? The. End Product is going to be different types of glass. Of course so basically you take them in you hit Heaton furnace, or with a really hot torture claim so that it becomes like in this malleable state, and then you shape it essentially so what I did there? We work on a leave, and we basically built like the light bulb globe. It's spun on a lathe and then you would really. Really hot with a hydrogen oxygen burners, two thousand degrees, and then you shape it based on certain dimensions so basically they would take that, and then we'd have a filament type that would basically you know, have some kind of chemical reaction than light up base off whatever the the fixture needed you know for the filming, so the specific light that they made there was an Hmo which is like a chemical. Name that I really don't know all the details into it, but it basically replicates the color of the sun so like if you see like on film sets, use those lights that kind of are the background that make everything look real, daytime and night-time filming. Those are the lights that we made when I worked there we're one of the few American companies still made them like with our hands, still as opposed to a machine meaning making them in a in a warehouse somewhere. But in a sense, essentially, that's what it was. We were just making them with a glassblowing. That's what I did while working there while I think nine or ten years. We Really, oh my goodness. Wow so start I'm surprised. It was that long because for people. Listening to this show were actually speaking through video so I can see you so I'm like. Wow doesn't look like he can hold a John. Young so young to have a job for that long. Then start another career. Okay? Wow, that awful. How did you get into that? Because that feels very niche, you're essentially making bulldogs. That camera crews in production crews are using on the sets of TV shows I mean. We were chatting before we recorded you live in California. I know like the entertainment industry is. In the movie industry in all of that is obviously very prominent out there is that kind of how that happened or It's interesting so actually the reason why I got into it is because my dad worked in that industry or like thirty years, and I had come out of working at John Juice and I was their. First job actually was working as a team member workup to insistent manager, and then eventually needed to make more money, because I got married at a really young so I. My dad ended up helping me getting the job there and you know I just ended up staying there for a really long time, but it's really how I got into. It was as my dad was in that industry longtime. He had connections and everything like that. Dot It. Did you go to a trade school or anything for glassblowing? No I actually just learned on the job. And still to this day is one of the most difficult things that I've ever done. Physically I for almost anything that can compare it to I think. Programming is its own challenge, but is like the hardest physical. Thing I've ever had to learn because it was like. If you don't do it right the first time, then you ruin it. So there's no going back and fixing it once. You kind of ruin it because the glass that we would work with you'd have to mix it with metals, and then once it's kind of melted to a certain point, you can't go back in extract those materials out of the glass, so it's Kinda ruined. If you don't do it, right is probably there really nerve, wracking or when I did that job. Yeah Wow, it also sounds like it could be dangerous if you're working as really like high temperatures. Absolutely I got burned really bad third degree burns I have degree burns like all my arm from it, but yeah, it was. It's definitely. Was I'm just curious. Did that have any role in your decision to look for a new job like I? Know you mentioned like the financial side, but were there other things, too? Yeah absolutely a that part being okay, so the big part, actually a aside from like the financial reasons that it just didn't pay that much. It was the work environments. It is in the Central Valley of California which in the summertime gets you know triple digits consistently and the warehouse that it is done is basically like a garage. It doesn't have an air condition. It doesn't have any of those things so the environment itself was. was just really really taxing. There's been a couple of times when I had gotten heat exhaustion, I got sent home because of it because like say it's one hundred, three, hundred ten, even outside inside that shop where you'd be working is a hundred twenty one hundred thirty degrees, and it was just unbearable is the if you've our to look back on some old twitter posts? I probably have pictures of like a thermometer in the area. And it's just like maxed out because it was just so hot, but yeah, that's that's probably WANNA be. A motivating factors to wanting to look for another job. It got to point where I was like. I need to get out of here. No matter what this job is just killing me physically, and you know a lot of other reasons you can imagine in an environment like that the people that you tend to work around kind of like really. Not The best work environment because you know on a lot of stress and you know tend not to get along very well when they're under a lot of stress is mentally and just everything that came along with that job, so it just became kind of like a hostile work environment as well so it was like a lot of. Factors that Kinda came into me like I have to get out of here you to find something else you know. Yeah well I mean that definitely makes sense. There's a few other people or one that is coming to mind that. We had on the show in a previous season. Whose name is Josh Camp? And he was a hope I. Stay this right a horse I think it's a horse fairer fairer, hope, number news right, but he would change the hooves on horses, which could also be really dangerous. Obviously, a horse kicks you and I believe it was an injury that ultimately led him to. You know look for other work in in what will link to that in the show notes for people listening now 'cause it. Was You know a few years back when we had on the show and any other episode, I believe it could have had a few where there was someone with a moron. Sick physically dangerous or physically labor job, and that's kind of what led them to to make a pretty big pivot because I can like working for you as a glass blower in those in that environment, physical Super Super Hot. It's totally different from working as a software engineer. And when you started coding, you mentioned using Free Co camp in other free resources. Were you still working fulltime as the glass blower and you are learning outside of that? Yes I was so I would I had a fulltime job there, and because of the heat I would work really really early hours I try to go in his earliest possible as three in the morning. Get off at noon or whatever it was Leonard Twelve so that time that I would get off of course I'd already so exhausted. Matt jobs so I have to go home and sleep a little bit and then. The thing with those interesting with that is. It was hard for me to be going having a fulltime job like that. Maybe some people can relate to that. You know like a maybe just a fulltime job in general is exhausting, but this job probably pushed it because of the environment itself the hostility behind it. That kind of gave me more motivation to be like you know what I'm really tired right now. And I'm not really motivated to to learn coding complete, foreign and difficult, but when I get off work the way I did time, so you know wanting to leave that place so bad that it was just that extra boost motivation for me to learn and study and just do everything I needed to do to succeed in it on just because it was just so bad. I got desperate. Really desperate I just remember that I tend to forget that, but then when I do remember I'm like wow, it helps me to be like really grateful. You know to where I am now, and it was really hard working fulltime job in learning, because I did learn while working there probably about a year and a half, maybe almost two years I was learning. And There was there were times when I would make huge progresses, but then. At the same time thinking like is this really possible? How do people get a job doing? It's like yeah. I can build a website, but there's more to it you like. Is this all I need to get a job type thing you know But Yeah! It was it was hard and I. Don't want to say like Oh yeah. It's super easy because it. Wasn't especially having to work fulltime job in it's all I could just you know. Take days off now and everything like that. I had to work. But yeah. It was difficult. So you were. Doing ice, you said for like one and a half two years where you were doing boom things at the same time. appleaday mentioned this earlier, but you. Free Co camp. Did you use any other resources or you mentioned Community College? Were you taking classes there? Yeah so additional to recode camp so the there's a lot of other things that I did that helped me so free code camp opened up at the time. I haven't camp while, but at the time had lake. Away that you would join and beat up and it was through facebook. It was like face, looking need groups or something, and it was like find a recode camp. Meet up because I. Guess they had like an umbrella. Recode camp meet ups that you can join, and you would basically type in your city in order find the nearest one that was that was organized and everything like that, so I found one in my city and it was you know a few people apartment that would meet up in so I joined that group and I reached out on their. Pre Cochem does a really good job with trying to connect people, so it's like hey, introduce yourself in post on there, so that people can no, no your journey Cetera so i. did that and I ended up meeting up with the organizers of that? Meet Up. We met at starbucks talked about you know everything on learning this and that where you and Rico camped up thing so eventually, I got more involved in that met more people that were learning as well and then now it. Kinda led to Terry member Oh the Mita. Dot Com meet up. There was also the recode. KEMP MEDIA DOT COM for our area that was attached to that facebook group. And, he was like yeah. I just started this. Meet up group, so we can kind of be more broad for people that don't have facebook. We can just Kinda grow up there and he was like you WanNa, help me with that because you know. He was maintaining full job as well, and he needed someone to Kinda. Fill in that gap where he couldn't. You know sounds like yeah. Sure I could definitely help with that, so I helped him. kind of on the organization's portion of that. meet up and like. Hey, let's try to meet. Kind of swap the weeks you know will be on a Saturday one week and then. I'll take the next every type of thing we'd be out of starbucks. And then someone posted on the meet up of feed. Like hey does a hack upon coming up, you guys should come reach out and you know I think it was free, and it was in our area, so I went to the hacker thon and myself in a couple of other people that were in that group, and then we ended up a or ended meeting a few other people at that meet up. That were real professional programmers. At the thoughts I introduced myself to them and everything like that met some really really nice. And probably the most helpful in kind person was actually the the organizer of that Agathon. When. I met him and everything like that. He gave me his contact information in and said Hey, we should get together sometime. I'm Cha and he was a professional programmer, running his own business and everything like that, so eventually I stayed in contact with him, and I met up with him, and I told him my journey and what I'm trying to do, super supportive of us all about helping people in my situation, you know like make connections, and even even help them with an internship and everything like that, and that's Kinda weird kicked off actually where it went from me trying to learn to me, actually making connections in potentially those connections leading to jobs. That was huge. Actually so this person that ran out. Pakistan also ran his on meet up. and His name was a little bit more. Mature he had a organized large meet ups and organised like a speakers where he would teach people how to get started with a new technology and all that stuff you know, so. This percent met up with them, and they're willing to like. Hey, you WANNA work on a project with. Wow real project like that's what I need to experience with a project, so I met with him or opt in some of the people that worked with him, and he ended up working with a lot of other guys that or just people in general men and women that were like kind of doing their own thing that a little bit more advanced as As programmers they're building girl websites starting their own software business in lake, a consulting and everything like that. That's where kind of took off. Is that connection? You know I to a upon met some people, and then it led to more people that we're kind of in the same boat as me, and if they are more advanced, they're willing to help me. By struggled with something and everything like that. It was really a douse like typical in me being successful. Yeah that is a great story and Other interviews I've been doing this season. We invite the guests on, and we think they have a really interesting transformation. Story is kind of like who I've been really Trying to get on the show this season and every single person that I've interviewed so far and there's been you know. Handful have all. Had this like really awesome Lake County. Component to their story and men like Kinda. Showing how supportive the tech community is in in various ways, and it sounds like you found that you know through this. Through connections through other connections with more experienced people in the field that helped catapult you forward in the they were able to help support you in various ways and maybe help if you're stuck as you said, build your first project and I think that's really cool I. Think it's really good for beginners to hear that because I know when I first started out in probably you, too. I would imagine it can be really intimidating and feel like very overwhelming, and you can feel really alone, and it's like it's almost. I haven't experienced like trying to break into other industries, but in a lot of ways I feel like even though texts seemed really intense in really hard I mean it is, but there's just such kind and helpful people like a friend, totally random side story, but she's not intact. She was trying to break into. The entertainment like film like Moodley TV shows. and. She had to work at an unpaid internship for like a year in really like claw her way up. She actually does really awesome. producing on really awesome documentaries now but. It was like really hard, very competitive very very. Very like you know and I feel like the tech community is so different from that like it's. People are Super Helpful yeah definitely. I've heard that as well. I'm not sure if it's if it's like the demand in this industry that were like trying to get into maybe people, maybe a logical gotten to it, and they kind of see you know all the hard work that. It takes. I, guess that they want to help other people as well or like coming from something like my background and everything like that. They kind of want to help people as well, but yeah, I noticed that as well as a lot of really helpful people, even before I started going through the ups and everything I joined twitter, and that's when I found like just like a free code cannot co Newbie A. PODCAST are their Hashtag in general dislike just to get help and everything like that, and when I when I reached out that way, just random people that were professionals judgment like hey. I think I'll struggling with. Like centering Adib or CSS, something something kind of silly. You know I needed help with it and some random person was like. Hey, Gimme, your hub Repo albeit with that was like. Wow, some random person that realize but more Santander worked at Microsoft or something like that and are willing to help I didn't even know this person but yeah, definitely noticed that about the industry's is a lot of willing people to help you regardless. Of Your background and everything like that. Yeah another guest I. Literally just had on the podcast said that she had so many breakthroughs. A CAITLIN for people listening to the show and in episode Caitlin. She was talking about how she had so many breakthroughs on twitter asking for help in people that she didn't even know. Offering to help her in various capacities, I feel like twitter is such a good. Well, it's funny. Because social media like every platform kind of has its own. Little like corner or whatever it could be really good for certain things and I feel like asking for help. Like in that way. Twitter is awesome because people will jump in people. It's almost like a forum, but it's not, but people are very like. Communicate unlike you know instagram or something, which is mostly about the photos and it's. It's not the same kind of. Environment just different. Anyway, it's it's interesting. Yeah so switching gears a tiny bit I would like to hear about how the new ended up getting your first full-time real position. Yeah absolutely. So it was when our meet up grew so when I met this person a friend. His name is nate a probably. Give him recognition there because east been so huge in my in my career as a friend and generally slow parental today we kind of joined are meet ups and we grew into this big. Meet Up. And it was like three hundred people. We grew to over three hundred people, and then we. He had connections with someone that was really involved in trying to grow the tech scene in the Central Valley of California. Washable, probably think though in California. It's like tech everywhere. Tech is huge, but that's really isolated towards like Silicon Valley Bay area, and when you go to the outskirts where I live, it's like farms and orchards in just really like farmland in. The outskirts of all the techie over the hill and there's all the big central. Silicon Valley everything like that, but out here it's it's completely different. There's still a lot of factories out here and everything like that, so tech isn't the big thing out here, so he was trying to person. He tried to basically bring tech out this way like hey companies. There's a talent out here as well so he was a part of that big that this big movement. That's still going on today so anyways. We ended up getting a space with his help, and he supported he. He got funding for it and we moved our meet up there. And, we were able to go reach out to the computer. Science professors ask some of the community colleges. They are able to come out. We reached out to people that talk computer science in the high schools I reach people on facebook I went out trying to like introduce myself to all these people, so we can grow all his these groups that are people better in software or coating to hey, come to this, Mita because we can all grow with the tech in the valley, so we had this large event whereas kicking off are merging of our beat ups, and we had I think. Over one hundred fifty people like almost two hundred people from professors in computer science to high school teachers in computer science to people, learning and everything like that so I went up there and I was speaking in front of it, and I was basically motivating other people that were in my position like hey. You guys? Should really you know? I was trying to leaning towards free code camp like if you guys want to learn to cope because those people that were like thinking about it, you know not really that much into it, so I kind of wanted to focus on those people because that's where they had the experience of coming from so was like. Hey, you know it's not that hard to get into it. There's some really really great resources that are free. That doesn't cost anything you know. MEET UPS like this a lot of great connections here and people willing to help you. If you're struggling every twenty five solves talking. They're all that and at that. Meet up was a few other. That worked at companies nearby when Consulting Agency the the banks have some of their software people out in the Central Valley as well and a couple of of the people that were there were friends with my friend, nate, a one that have basically helped me out and everything that always connections. He introduced me to one of guys there and he said Hey his company's hiring. I want you. I want to introduce you to Michael and this is after all is kind of getting already getting. Getting experience with building some projects and everything and my friend was like. Yeah, he knows what he's doing now. He he's employable. He's definitely has experience with building front, and back and software and everything so introduced me to a friend of his name of Josh and he worked for a company that basically did consulting for like probations, law enforcement software. They did software for E N NJ Gallo, a lot of big companies, so they're really established there around for like twenty years so I met with him. And then he was like where we're actually looking for someone. More junior developer is like Amir number. We eventually had coffee. Just Kinda. Talk and everything like that and we just hit it off. We kind of our personalities. Kind of you know He. We liked hanging out and everything like that, so that kind of started like a friendship, you know. We talked for about a year and. And you'd help you with stuff like that and I was like. Hey, and he's like our company is kind of in the middle of Lake, you know hiring, but they kinda. Put a freeze on that everything like that, so after about a year when I. When I met him, he finally called me up one day, and the funny story is that I was getting to a point. In in learning how to Code and currently working where I was almost ready to give up, because it felt like I was putting effort and then. I wasn't getting any any reward from like. If I was applying everywhere and I wouldn't get any kind of response to resume. I reached out to people to help with resume all these things. Did I did a lot? Maybe not everything that could have just because I didn't know, but I felt like I was getting any hits on my resume or If I. DID GET A call. It was like you know I didn't know how to do some kind of algorithm that I didn't learn or memorize or whatever it was, so I was getting really discouraged, almost going to be like. Maybe I do need to go to school at unity at degree. Maybe I need to just join a boot camp or or joint something that is going to make me be more appealing to employers so I was looking. and. Just kind of getting really discouraged at that time. But the funny thing is that I got a call for my friend Josh and he goes. Hey, we have this contract coming up. We need to hire a developer and I've been talking to my boss about you and we'd like to bring you on. He's like. Of course we'll interview you and everything like that and he's like. Are you interested in? He's like. Like I'm almost one hundred percent, sure they've we bring you on because you know like I know you and I know your work, and I can help you and everything like that and I was like. Are you kidding me? And when he told me that I was thrilled, I was actually really scared. Same time this is reality is like real software coding. In, part of me was going to say no like I do this. This is too much like the difference between working on side projects that you know like whatever no one's really going to care about versus working on software that people use so I. I got really scared. I even once. My wife and I was like I. Don't know if I can do this like I'm GonNa. Quit my job and I go do this and then I fail. I can't go back to that job. I can't do that, you know. This is a big decision. You know I've been here for nine years or whatever it was. So ultimately, my my wife convinced me and was like you need to do this. People don't get good things unless they take some kind of risk. Regardless, you should try you know. So I call it my friend. I told him I concerns and Josh was like you know you're just trying to scare yourself out of. It Dude so just take it from me. I'm going to be there to help you, so don't worry us to take this. Just, take it you know and I was like. Okay, let's set up the interview and everything like that and goes all right, so set the interview and. They hired me. And that was basically it I started there with no professional experience. It was all because of someone was willing to help me know again back to that. You know this industry is always really helpful people that are willing to take a chance on you and help me help you and everything, and and and of course there's a lot of challenges you know working in in actually writing real software and everything like that, but in the long run it really helped me in was just huge into getting my job, and then after that first job. Of course, my resume after that just everyone always cared to look at it. You know I I didn't have nearly as. Much difficulty looking for next role after that I think it's like once you get your first job regardless of its junior level, or whatever in in this industry it kind of goes downhill OCTA that you actually get considered. You know you'll get your resume looked at. You'll get that first interview and everything like that. Yeah Wow, so. How long did you work there at the first job? And then what what kind? You don't have to get like super detailed, but like what kind of work redoing essentially. There year, so I started off working on a back end actually of in node framework, or on the no runtime. Basically, the contract was migrating some. It's funny because I went from like barely learning it in writing mostly front end to writing some back in code and the PRI, the contract was basically taking some old enterprise services that were written in Java and then rewriting them on no gs lambda, so that that was what I was doing for like the first four months and after that contract and they moved on to another. Another project and it was more full stack. It was job script. It was using angular on the front end no on the back end and some sequel server, but I got the rightful stack of front end back in using Java javascript note and everything like that. It was really fun. 'cause I got to work on two different big projects there and I learned so much. That's where my whole stack experience kind of took off I got I got to learn so much and the people that I worked with worse huge. It was just I can't even express how thankful I am to people that I work with there and I still am friends with them. That helped me explained things a broke things down. And having been able to understand these other languages. Yeah Wow and I know you recently got a laid off due to cove in nineteen. was that from this same employer or was this another job you had gotten after leaving that company? Another story so I was there at that company for about a year, and then towards the end my wife and I found out. We're GONNA. Have Child and so I needed to. That company was great for it was actually a bump in salary than I currently made up. My Company the light, Bulb Company, but it's I still needed to. I needed to progress I needed to move on and grow my career, and financially so I started to look I started. You know I even asked my boss at the time. I was like Hey I have a child, the ways or any chance that I can move up or anything like that, and you give me feedback, and it was like yeah, definitely, in whatever amount of time so I took that and say okay, that's CREPE. should start looking in see by even get my resume considered now that experience so I started to look, and then I got hired at a start up in the bay area and Silicon Valley. And I was there for almost a year way so i. don't want I. Don't want to interrupt you, but was at working remotely or you move there. I actually had hybrid role, so I would go into the office like an hour and a half commute two days a week. And then worked from home the other days, but yeah, it was a there. I got a taste of the whole silicon valley. Feel of how software companies ran, and my skills went up even higher because of that environment, but yeah, so I was there for about a year and It was a startup that wasn't able to get another round of funding, so actually we all. They started laying people off. fortunately they didn't lay the soccer team like right away, but since we found that out, we started to look all the engineers that worked at that company, or like Oh they're not getting. Funding is a good chance. They're gonNA lay people off, so we all started looking and I got hired at the Credit Union and I. was there for about a year? or about a year exactly actually, and due to the pandemic and everything like that they started to kind of restructure, reorganize everything and effected a lot of teams, including my own team and We're a part of that layoffs will. But yeah, it was. It was kind of something that I. Could. Imagine obviously has affected a lot of people everywhere, and it feels like it's just one of those times. That no-one can have planned for, but yeah. I've been a part of that have been affected by that as well. Yes, so justice like for myself in the listeners, so you basically had three different jobs like intech at this point in each for about a year. Give or take, so you essentially now have like three years of like fulltime software engineering experience. And the most recent position that you've got furloughed related offer a Is that a credit union? And what were you doing there so? It's interesting. 'cause you've such like different experience like from like like a consulting firm to a tech startup to credit union like I imagined that the experiences at each one were quite different like the environment of in the way people work in south. Absolutely so. Go working at a credit union, it's a pretty large credit union and the way things are done there as opposed to the other companies that I worked at. Worse it significantly different so look the startup that I worked at. They were pretty large. Start up there actually around for ten years they had employed over three hundred people. The engineering team was fifty engineers people and. They operated like they were a big tech company and everything like that, so but at the same time I had the experience of being able to shift. To project same time like there's times when I was working on a mobile APP and one for one sprint I'd be working on a whole two weeks on a mobile APP, and then I'd be pivoted to work on their web APP, clients. Front end code, and then after that I'd be working on some hardware code completely different working on a proprietary algorithm that needs to be converted in red on a mobile APP. It was different stuff all the time, and it was really exciting, but also really nerve wracking because of the context, switching a lot and learning new languages at the same time. So that was I learned a lot by lot of the fast paced stuff at that start up, and then when I got to the Credit Union. There was a little bit more relaxed because those only one product that I worked on essentially. Korb, inking APP and there I had a team of eight engineers that were dedicated for this core banking APP. I got brought on as a senior engineer there, and then that that role kind of pivoted towards a lead developer. I was on that project for about four months. And then my a boss. Promoted to the lead developer of that team so essentially there was a lot different roles because for one it was one project, and it was a mobile APP. I had experience with mobile APP at the other company, but not to this extent, it was just a huge mobile APP. And the primary, the primary objective being handling with people's money was probably a significant factor to the change of of like a importance of the application that part probably. At a lot to the stress when I worked knowing that you're working on something that deals with people's money and five hundred thousand active members so that was a big learning experience. And I do. I learned a lot of new stuff learned new languages learned how to do a lot of things that you wouldn't typically do web development, but yeah, it was a lot of differences in structure, probably a lot of different departments that you have to work with before you can get approval in changing something like maybe typically and. Change some piece of code that would maybe look slightly different, because it just makes more sense while at the Credit Union. It wasn't that simple. You had to get a lot of approvals and a lot of test. Writing to make sure lingers securer in a rented to different avenues. You know which was different. Yeah, that yeah makes dealing with financial information. You know sensitive data, and all that would be quite different. I imagined so now that your you by the time episode airs, you could already be in a new job, but. Being active in your job search now. What kind of company aiming to work out? What do you want to stay in like? The financial industry are trying to go back to a startup or maybe a consulting firm that you get to work all these different projects. Yeah, what were you? What did you like the most I guess? Let's see. Probably a ideally would wouldn't stay in the financial industry just because. All the little differences in how delayed development can be due to all those hoops. You have to jump through, but probably most fun I had was. Working in consulting agency. Because working so many different things. Different projects everything like that, but a lot of them had their own pros and cons. You know in terms of like. What I would prefer probably something that is more established due to. More stability just because of everything. That's going on right now. I've heard a lot of people have lost their jobs regardless of the industry even in software I would probably prefer stability. If I could choose regardless of the industry but Yeah. It's probably it's probably more geared towards that. You know what I can find that it is more stable and everything like that. I do have a few other avenues in alert. You know companies that I'm going through right now so I am confident that something will end soon. That's probably the good part is that they're still a high demand for software engineers and everything like that, so there's a lot of good a good places that are hiring right now and everything like that. But. They do specific Yeah Yeah Gotcha so I'm. Kind of jumping around here, but I really wanted to ask this question, and it goes back to your glassblowing experience. I was wondering if there was anything from that or your position before a Jumba juice that you. Were able to transfer or in some way to you in your job, your new job as a software developer. Probably the thing that. I don't know if it helped me, but there's a few different things probably so working probably in an environment that required me to have a lot of perseverance, probably aided to my benefit, and in general and just work ethic. It helps me To be able to deal with probably stresses and deadlines Challenges in my current role because I dealt with that a lot on any. Of can can relate to that. Is You know working in a place like that or just any kind of work that requires them to give a little bit extra is required, just laken. Succeed or do well their job. It probably just helps helped with those areas in work ethic to work hard enduro ally and everything like that but also know what I want going forward, and what I don't want in a career or or next role. Also of a big part of that. Working at that company helped me in was. Probably having difficult conversations with my employer I had a lot of those at that company and it prepared me to be able to deal with those difficult situations. A lot better at all night, other roles a and what I mean, my difficult situations, probably dealing with difficult people another one being having a conversation with your superiors about compensation You know asking for what you feel like. You deserve and everything like that I've had a lot of those, and they didn't go so well at that company that I feel really confident and know how to approach those types of people or Whenever those conversations need to happen, you know. It can be difficult for a lot of people, but I think have so much experience with it that it's. It's kind of more fluid and how to do in the right way. It's aided a lot in that in in my career going forward. Yeah that makes sense and like. I, I can only imagine like the stressors you deal with being in an environment with the glassblowing like Super Hot. You said you were sent home from heat exhaustion, the stress like literally the physical danger bringing yourself. It's like working from home as a software engineer or star office in Silicon. Valley is like the stress level would be so much less like the. They compare Cinderella the stressors you're dealing with compared to maybe like the ones at the other place. Yeah, like whole other scar accord whole other thing, right? We are like running at time and there's one last question I want to ask before we wrap this out and it's just if you could share any like final advice to people listening right now. Who are just starting out? Maybe they were where you were like. You know four or five years ago. Whenever whenever you got your start. What advice would you give them? All. Let's see so I. Think for one perseverence when things feel like it's difficult, it may be difficult at first, but the more and more you do it in the more and more you practice. You'll eventually understand it some complicated things that I. That I could not have imagined when I first started of doing I'm able to thoroughly explain. They seem like almost simple. Now I think the more and more you do it. The the more natural feel, and it'll be really simple. Just just keep on doing it and things easier. also in your journey and learning. It's really important to try to reach out to people to make connections go to meet UPS ask questions. Because those are going to be the areas where where you're gonNA find a connection that can help you find that career and ultimately successful in in this career field. But those are probably the two biggest ones is. Now I know it's hard at first, but it gets easier, and it gets fun on the challenges they start to face. Get really exciting, and it's really rewarding. Ultimately you know all hard work will pay off as long as you just keep to it. And it will pay off so yeah, awesome, great advice in a great way to end this interview. Thank you so much again for coming on. Where can people find you online? Yeah absolutely. Probably a mitre twitter, a twitter handle is mit p. j are eight eight. Or my website is just a my name, my first name Michael or implemental. Dial my personal, Mitchell my last name.

Helping houseplants cope with a heatwave

"Can be a bit of a short. Can you get a sudden burst of sunny days and high temperatures here in the UK, for the last few days it's been getting up to thirty degree Centigrade, which is, she says looking if I can't tell you what that is. Fahrenheit because it's actually off my chart. I'm thinking about ninety degrees. Fahrenheit probably, but much ought doesn't go that high. It does occasionally get this hot in the. UK doesn't happen that often. Often but when it does, we do struggle to cope, because we're not really set up for this kind of heat, and this is a time when we need to be paying extra attention to our house plants, because if you live in a climate where it's regularly getting up into the thirty s then you and your applauds a more acted, but if you're in a climate wet, it isn't the usual practice then. Everyone's undergoing a little bit of shock. So. It's worth checking out your plants checking in with them regularly and making sure that they can make it through this period. Things can account for well. If you've got very hot sunny days. The plants that are in your sunny windows. Maybe I'd to cope in spring in March or April with the amount of light. That's coming in through those windows. Come this periods. And the power and intensity of the sun, and the duration of the sun round the Solstice, the longest day of the year is going to be greater, so is worth having a look at your parents, and just considering some of them might need to be moved a meter or two away from the window, or the whatever the light source may be. That's a skylight, the sun coming through the windows, going to be more powerful at this. This time of year. So think about that unmoved any points before they get the chance to be sunburned. They certainly won't be badly affected by having a few days in a little bit more shade than usual and it major save them from unsightly marks, which could be going Straw yellow or brown patches. Those kind of things can indicate sunburn in mind. Also terrariums can suffer in this really hot weather. Imagine they are like a greenhouse. That is your house, so they can get incredibly heart, and if you've got any shaft of light, the mind becoming through more intense light than they used to, the plants can start to get dangerously hot, so do think about moving terrariums Tutu Cooler locations. Just keeping an eye on what's going on inside, you might need to take a little bit more or perhaps a bit less, but just make sure that they are not turning into a boiling colder that your plants won't appreciate and certainly if you're using the lovely, who must pop technique for propagating cuttings on. Contact from somebody recently, who said what's happening all? My who has popped cuttings just turn into Mersch and I said suspected that the listener had been putting these on really sunny windowsill on the cuttings cutting just cooking, so make sure if you've got a propagation station. Yes, it looks very nice on your windowsill, but think about moving it somewhere out of the sun, because those cuttings will really struggle in this hot weather particularly if they haven't got much of a root system established yet. The other thing to be aware of is that your plants maybe thirstier than usual. Why is that well? When a plant is in hot temperatures, the light intense, and the light intensity is higher than the rate of transpiration increases. That's the rate at which the plant is losing water through its leaves by the water, evaporating through the STA Marta the holes in the surface of. Of the leaf, and it will be drawing up more water from the roots and pulling that through and the high temperature and light intensity, then the more the plant will transpire, so it's going to need more water. How can you slow the rates of transpiration? Well, if the partly surrounded by really humid air, then slow it down, so you can miss your plants more. If you. Move them outside. Bear in mind. The extra wind will also caused transportation to increase. If you put your plants outside again, they might need more water, but just make sure there was enough water around. Those roots of the plant doesn't end up wilting because that will be the end result if your leaves are allowed to get into that situation where there just isn't enough water to supply the rate of transpiration. That's happening if you do come across any parts that have wilted just first of all, make sure that it's not a question. Question of over watering as it can be, implants will, but if they're really draw around the roots, he needs to take emergency act action. get them into the shade. Stick their pot into a bucket or tray of water. Run lots of water over the root ball. Because once that will get super dry. It becomes hydrophobic, so it pushes away water, and you'll need to defeat that by giving you a really good. Soak gift up could soak for an hour or two, and it should recover provided. It hasn't been led to go too far. So do check plants even plaza think well watered them every few weeks. You will find that they will need more water at this time and CACTI and succulents. You've got CACTI and succulents. You will find that they will drink a good amount during this time as well. My CACTI and succulents right now, getting rewarded at least once a week, and especially if they're in terra cotta port, which is evaporating moisture too, so ignorant. Your CACTI succulents because they will need water to.

How workers are fighting for their rights in a dangerous gig economy

"I was doing my grocery shopping at ten thirty last night and by doing my shopping. I mean I was picking things out on an APP that somebody else would get for me at the grocery store the next day and delivered to my front door and if for some reason I couldn't get a spot on that APP INSTA- cart and I guess we'd probably have ordered delivery for dinner using another APP that relies on another person to pick things up at the scary world and bring them to me. Yes I feel guilty about that but not enough to stop using these APPS and doubt that I'm alone in that right now we're relying on workers and the GIG economy more than ever and their job is far more dangerous than ever and most of them. Don't get hero pay or have job security or benefits. Some of them will have been fighting hard to change that and some of them have even one including a group here in Canada. The provinces Labor Board has ruled out food door couriers more closely resemble employees rather than independent contractors creating a groundbreaking precedent for others in the GIG economy. So today will tell you their story and we'll also tell you what happened right after that historic victory and we will do that as soon as. Clare. Who is just back from vacation gives us an update on covid. Nineteen this weekend Clare. Welcome back where did you go? Hey Yeah I took a few days off last week but didn't go anywhere. Obviously the furthest I went was to the park down the street. I am just glad that you came back. And before you update us. Can you explain to listeners? When will hear your updates now? Because we're changing that alphabet. Yeah will you know? I think we're kind of over the initial shock of Covid nineteen down the world and we've been hearing the phrase new normal lot so there will be fewer news updates at the top of the show from now on basically a couple times a week will update you on anything big happening with COVID. Nineteen in Canada. So yes you'll still get the news you need but maybe not every day and of course if God forbid a second wave hits and things do go downhill we will then be right here going down that hill with you every day and speaking of a second wave Clare. Let me guest as your report. Today involves some idiots in Toronto. Who were doing their best to make that happen this weekend. Yeah well that was what everyone was talking about this weekend. Because it was nice and warm out in Toronto and people wanted to go out so there were these huge crowds at Trinity Bell Woods Park on Saturday. Thousands of people were there with practically no physical distancing the city of Toronto. Call this dangerous behavior saying that. This threatened to undo all the work done over the past ten weeks so on Sunday. The World Law enforcement officers in the park and making sure that people were keeping that two meter distance. This is happening. As the number of cases of Covid nineteen is actually going up in Ontario and perhaps coincidentally two weeks after Mother's Day in Alberta the cities of Calgary and burks joining the rest of the province in allowing bars restaurants and hair salons to open today and there will be more restrictions lifted for those cities in particular on June first and in Quebec their concerns about an upcoming heat wave a minimum of thirty degrees Celsius for three days. Starting tomorrow the concern is people in long term care homes who don't have air conditioning. A long term care homes as we know have been hit the hardest throughout throughout this pandemic in Canada especially in Quebec so the Quebec Council for the protection of patients says. It's ready to go to court on this one as of Sunday evening. Eighty four thousand six hundred and ninety nine cases of covid nineteen in Canada with six thousand five hundred and fifteen deaths. I'm Jordan Youth Rawlings and this is the big story. Sarah much heads. Ida is the work and wealth reporter for the Toronto Star. She frequent guest on this podcast and now she has a podcast as well. Her new show is hustle. It's about the David versus Goliath battle. For Workers Rights in the GIG economy and episode two drops today Hazara high. You told us about this podcast when we had you on a couple of months ago and you've been putting the whole thing together. I guess well. The landscape has been shifting dramatically. So why don't you just kind of take us way back to the beginning and tell me about the GIG economy and food aura in particular When you first began this project which is a little over a year ago. Yeah that's right. It's sort of the May year anniversary of reporting on this story and there is really being so many twists and turns over over the course of the year. Some of which we sort of new would come a big battle at the Labor board an effort to try and unionize food aura careers. And then some that were just totally unanticipated. Obviously picked the pandemic being the major one there. So it's been a. It's been a really interesting. Year of following wet was really a unique kind of first attempt to change working conditions for workers in the GIG economy. Which I think is a word that we're all familiar with and we're so used to using APPs to get an uber left or order a meal to our doorstep but you know often. We don't interrogate what is happening behind the scenes. And so that was sort of the inspiration for taking a deeper dive into what the realities of this kind of work are like a new followed a group of food or careers for a year. Just tell me about them. I mean who are they? How did they meet? What are they like? Yeah so Fidora careers are really a diverse group of workers in the city. You know we've all probably seen them on their bikes with a big pink Fedora. Bag on the back or food or a jacket But they're not just cyclists. They're also drivers who go around the city delivering meals and I think a lot of people kind of assume that Workers doing this kind of job are often like young college students especially downtown a lot of the folks that you'll see on their bikes are are younger people but the reality is that the workforce when. I started meeting. Carriers was so much more diverse. You know a lot of drivers who are working in more suburban areas. Are you know New Acadians? Were supporting their families and haven't been able to find work in in their field. You know it's people who really do this as a full-time job is their career. Really They've been doing it for years And I think that the kind of overwhelming feeling that I sort of got from from talking to careers over. The course of the past year were just the fears and concerns around the protections on the job and a sense that this is a job that has really kind of fallen through the cracks that disentitlement workers from a lot of supports that many people take for granted. I think most fundamentally is a job where many express expressed just feeling like. There was a lack of respect and and one career Chris Williams who was involved in the Union drive. Kind of summed up why careers started organizing and trying to change that the broader issues around health and safety wages and dignity. And all those kind of stem from this other issue which is Fidora's misclassification of their couriers calling them. Independent contractors instead of employees or dependent contractors and that misclassification allowed them to avoid taking any responsibility for carriers. You talked about that kind of the goals of forming a union and one of them with dignity. Why is that so important? It's the hardest issue to define by in some ways. It's the most important careers have value. And I think it's the most important because that's personally by the way I think it's the most important because I think it's the one that justifies everything else like. That's why wages are important in many ways for me is because it's hard to live a dignified existence if your wages are two or uncertain if you don't know whether you'll make your daily quoted today or not and obviously health and safety connects to dignity because it's hard to be now when you're wearing constantly about your health you know it takes a toll it takes an effect. I want to explore that a little bit more but I I find the idea that we can talk about. These jobs is having fallen through the cracks kind of crazy. 'cause can you give me a sense of the scale of the GIG economy and Canada because it's everywhere right? Yeah anything I think

Power Off Stall Tips

"Start something that's a little bit little bit just technical and start to talk about that so having a hard time with my power off stall any tips so the power off stall is also known as the approach to landing stall and I've really tried to rename it myself to make sure that I connect that approach to landing to it because that will tell you everything you need to know about setting up your power off stall. So you're coming into the pattern right. You're going to be landing. You're reducing your power back as you're coming into the pattern power off. That's how we know we are doing a power off stall emulating a landing so you'll typically do this with flaps you will you can either do a straight ahead or you can do it. In a banked turn essentially this one is really easy with the flaps out and most airplanes the the airplane is more docile in the stall. You don't have the left turning. Tendencies that the power on stall we know that if you have that powerful throttle or even partial throttle that you are going to get those left turning tendencies that will pull the one way in power off stall you. Don't really have that so. The airplane is fairly docile. What I do is I get the airplane in. Approach speed Say Sixty to seventy miles per hour in a Cessna. One seventy two. And then all you do. Is you pull the nose up to the horizon? Okay you put the top of the cowling right on the horizon in a one seventy. Two's going to different other airplanes. And then you You hold it there. Until you get the stall indications with the flaps down you're going to get a fairly mild stall You'll feel buffet. You'll hear the stall warning Horn and you may get that momentary drop and as a pilot. You're the one forcing it there right. You're forcing it to that horizon. So all you need to do to recover is relaxed the pressure on the yoke reduce the angle of attack. And then you can get the wing flying again now. The recovery the entire recovery is reducing the angle of attack sue. Get Out of the critical of attack the wing flying again just by doing that. Little Bit of change in your pitch attitude and then adding power in and climbing out of that approach to land install so recently emulating that we've come in we've we've for some reason Become distracted and we got to slow. We got to a stall condition and we really do want to have that power in there to recover. You still can just put that nose right on the horizon. And that's GonNa give you a enough of a of of a climb and then you would want to reduce your flaps by one notch. If you are say at thirty thirty degrees you can even go to twenty degrees in one. Seventy two so couple of different helpful. Things THEIR POWER PITCH UP CLEANUP BASICALLY POWER UP POWER FORWARD PITCH UP CLEAN UP FAST recovery after you've reduced angle of attack and got the wing flying again and then you minimize how much altitude you lose all right. So it's all about that recovery and in there you go.

Doing it In-Camera with OMNI, by Lensbaby!

"Hey we'll come back to another episode of this week and photo of your host. Frederik van Johnson. Today on the show. I have a friend of Mine Mr Craig Strong. He's been on the show before. And if you do remember his past appearances on twit you'll know that he is the chief creative officer and a CO founder of a company called. Lynn's baby they make some some pretty cool light bending tools the latest of which is the Omni series of products. So we're GONNA talk about those today and before we do Craig. We sort of give us the Reader's Digest version of Lens. Baby you've been on before so most people know all about Lindh's baby but for the folks that may not what is Lindsay Baby. Good to be back Frederick. Thanks for having me here. Let's see so lens. Baby makes creative affects camera accessories now but previous to that it was just lenses and So but everything we do helps you find your creative voice and does so in a way that his little little different than a traditional lens manufacturer accessory manufacturer. So you guys. You guys are creating You know that's obviously Lind's baby but you do some different things and one of the things we talked about. I think in the first interview with you was the U. combating sort of the idea that these types of accessories lenses can't be used for professional level worker repeatable level war. Where can you talk to that a little bit for? We dive into the Omni. Well when when I started Lens Baby I was a professional photographer and I I had come through newspapers to start shooting commercial and weddings and whatnot. And so I I kind of had a small view of what Lens Baby could be in terms of what I was using it for. I was using it for detail photos at weddings shooting in moments. That were happening. When when I'd gotten all the safe images that I that I wanted to get That that the clients expected but what happened was once we introduced the Lens Baby. It started being used for really serious. Work photo journalism. Which I I wouldn't have thought But it's really been our customers and the photographers out there. That have have gotten the lens baby products in their hands and on their cameras that have really defined what can be done and it's pretty limitless and and it's Kinda blown me away 'cause like I said I had a pretty small perspective of you know this is. This is something that Would would be done for fun. Would be done to to reignite your creative juices and both those things are true but then it's also used to create unique imagery for your clients and which client isn't. GonNa Choose the TAGA FOR THAT. Gives them the most creative work? That's GONNA stand out pretty much most of them so any of them that. I want to work for it's cool. It's cool all right. We'll get so let. Let's switch gears and talk about this new thing. So thank you for sending these over so I can get a look at these that I've got to well made with feels like felt and Velcro in in hand stitched with leather on them. Sort of things in my hands. I'll tell us about this product in the inception of the product. So the Omni. What is it so the Omni filter is a product that that I've got one right here that allows me to Put various things in front of the Lens and currently. We've got This right here is the what do we call it the Rainbow Film? And that's going to give you some streaky rainbow things going on you can see that reflections combined with The Transmitted Rainbow that you see from up above All sorts of stuff going on so This is this is one. That's great on phones and whatnot. But you know these little tiny lenses like I've got my laptop They'll tend to show the edges and whatnot so That would be a different product in a different time but right. Now we've got it for interchangeable lens cameras anything with with filter threads on it So yeah it's the the ring right here screws onto the front of your your Lens. We've got a fifty eight millimeter and that has accessory on sorry step up rings For our step yeah step up rings for fifty five fifty two and forty nine that come along with it and then we have a larger one. You can see here on my eighty five that This this is a seventy seven and it has a step down ring to eighty two and Step up rings from Seventy to sixty seven and sixty two so yeah so we got everything covered. Basically you know but the idea here is that you can. You can position the things that you're shooting through. We've got a triangle prism here on a handle. You can position it wherever you want and leave it there with both hands. Free to shoot While you're taking your pictures and not have to hold it in place in the exact same spot where you want it for every image which isn't very practical and can you. Can you talk a little bit about the design? Because when I when I picked it up the photos on the website do it do it a fair amount of justice but actually holding those those little. What do you? What do we call them? What's the word for those those little Caesar Affect ones and they're making net in the arm is like a ball and socket magnetic? That's attached? Can you go through the the inception of analysts? So let's let's get down to its basics here we've got The ring which comes with a step up bring so it'll go on any of your Any of your lenses most interchangeable Lens Lenses that? Are you know not one hundred twelve millimeter diameter which were working on as well We'll work with it and then we've got These magnets here which you can just put your affect one's directly on Or You you can put an extension arm which allows you to articulate that and have a little more three-dimensional control so you can put it. The the magnets will be off to the side. And you can put that down at the bottom. Without having to slide anything. Around although these magnets slide slide around and give you lots of freedom so we got a long arm and a short arm so You can get up to four accessories on at once the way it's equipped so you can put one down straight on the magnet on the ring and then Two Arms. You're you're set to go. That is cool school. So then what what? Part of that is magnetic is the ball. That's magnetic or the the socket so it's the socket that's magnetic so we've got these Hollow counter sunk magnets and at the bottom of those magnets We've we have Attention which allows you to get nice solid tension so it's not going to move around accidentally And then the same is true out at the end. Where you've got magnets out at the end of the arm and Yeah it's it's a nice kit at the The idea came from From a lot of our customers using the prisons and holding things Plastic bags whatever in front of their in front of their lenses. It's been out for you know it's probably since the beginning of time looking through something to create more interest But then to to look through something that is is specifically designed and tailored to do to create Lots of different effects. In fact what we've got right here is a prism. Prism gives you three different ways to as you rotate it gives you different perspectives Because it's three different angles that were working with Looks like we've got a ninety degree thirty degree and a sixty degree and that might not be true because I'm not. I just play an engineer on TV. And but as you turn it you get what what you would normally get. With a triangle. Prison would be three sixty degree angles that that would give you your effect and as you turn it you get the same effect at each at each spot with this when you get a different effect and you know we so we're coming into it. Purposefully like we do with our Lens Design and saying okay. How can we make this as versatile as possible?

"Back. Welcome back. So I know I've invited anybody to call in. If you have any questions, you want me to talk you off this ledge about this cool weather that's going to be rumbling through here for the next couple of mornings. But then I think I really do think that's it we're done. And I was trying to look at the Weather Channel and Joey anybody calls in on this feel free to get him into the front line. If you're worried that you've still have not put down your fifteen five tenure imperial from Nitra fos as the early green up. It's okay. One thing. I may not have explained in the past. Is that the early green up starts in February of the weather cooperates, and it did and it can go all the way through about March fifteen. So we've still got two more weeks for all intents and purposes to do our only green up Nitra fos imperial fifteen five ten is the go-to product for that. And it's still in the original orange red bag, and it was developed by turf grass researchers at. AM? And it does what it says it's going to do it's going to early green you up. And that's what we want to do. And it kinda kicks starts the program then the slower lease controlled release fertilizers. Those are the ones that are way more temperature sensitive to the soil temperature. So if you were to put out say Nitra fos super turf today, you probably would get nothing out of it. You might like in thirty days. See a little bit of green up because the controlled release stuff. That's looking for the the temperature to be just right, which is why we don't put out a full blown fertilizer controlled release fertiliser until we get to about April. First that's normal around here. So technically speaking you have all the way through the end of March. If you want to do the early green up, then you just have to make thirty to forty days to do the next application of the controlled release. But in the Nitra Voss fifteen five ten is there in plenty of great supply all over the place from all as hardware stores nurseries. The garden centers a lot of other. Hardware stores if they carry nightfall they ha- everybody has the orange bag imperial that's the early green up. I was trying to look I know I looked about was it Thursday or Friday that zero chance of rain, actually. Yeah. So Wednesday March six this coming Wednesday zero chance of rain in the local area. That's going to be a great morning to get it down. If you didn't get it down this past weekend. And with the cold weather putting you off and with some thirty degree temperatures for the next three mornings. I definitely want you guys to bear with us. And I think Wednesday you can get it down Thursday. If it doesn't rain you can get it down. If you can get it down, right before rain, even that much more power to you which begs the question that came up several times yesterday with people heard the word sweet green as the early green up nine false has an organic fertilizer known as sweet green. It's an eleven zero four and like Joey thought that would be the first things to go off the shell. It wasn't. But that's okay. And that may be because a lot of people didn't know you could do the sweet green as your early green up as well. Again. I would wait till Wednesday. Get it down if mother nature waters in it a day later more power to it's that much. It's just good when mother nature waters in embers you, but sweet green doesn't really need to be watered in the way, the fifteen five ten needs to be watered in that makes sense. So I think I'll go through since I listed the Nitra fall. Sweet green. And since we listed the night false imperial fifteen five ten how about I give you a short quick listen closely. I'll go through too fast, as I can list places, we know Kerry both of these products. But specifically the fifteen five ten right now, I said hardware stores. Let me go through as many hardware stores. I can find besides just the ace. Bearings hardware, both their locations, the plantation ace hardware, Katie ace hardware ace Cinco ranch as hard. City on memorial. Could you to Stanton's down and Alvin lake hardware Angleton and clue? Gyms hardware in Montgomery, fishers, hardware, all three of those locations LaPorte Pasadena, and now baytown allied as hardware, which is up in brenham and courts, hardware and staffer, and that's just listing hardware stores. Of course, there's a lot of other ace, and there's a lot of other nurseries and garden centres, whether it's the sweet grain, whether it's the fifteen five ten imperial. We should use this opportunity of zero chance of rain Wednesday March six to get it down before the rains come back again looking like on Friday Thursday Friday. So if you have any clarification needs give me a call right now seven one three two one two KTAR for all your guard line calls. We're going to get to David in utopia here in just a second seven one three two one two seven one three two one two five eight seven four, and let's do that. David in utopia is up next morning. David. Are you doing this morning? Good. How can we help you want to bring up some facts about all broad got a place in your copay? You're real familiar with it. It's all over the place up there. It doesn't really arm any tree in nutrients, and it it grows on power lines up there now, and it goes on fences, it grows on all kinds of things. But if you don't get control of it, it will basically nine we'll say suffocated, but you will not get a lot of leaf production. And when you suffocate all L E, you're getting no action on the tree. It is not a smart thing to let go it's just not you're right. I mean, it is falls in that till Lancia family, the the air plant family, but the air plants don't reproduce at the same level that ball moss. Does and ball moss is just nasty in the way it will over just overwhelming tree in short order. Yeah. I just blacked out. Sunlight, there's a great Myrtle up there before probably in seventy four just about taking over and it it doesn't bloom like fifteen years ago. But here's the thing. Just very.

This major highway by right hands on the steering wheel. I'm going about twenty miles an hour, and I'm trying to scrape the ice off the window with a little hole, I managed to get all about the size of maybe the length of a hot dog and trying to drive with that and worried about the roads now that are covered with dry ice. And the other cars, which are sliding all over the place. I mean, this was this was my first experience driver get an ice storm. And it was incredibly scary. And you have to keep sticking your hand out the window to you know, to scrape that ice off, but for people to go through this. It's just unbelievable and the next time. They had an ice storm.

Winds are also expected a car along the eastern seaboard, whatever I hear these stories are immediately go back to Saint Louis with the driving in the ice storm, which was one of the most probably one of the most scariest things in my life. Because you don't know and also by back, then I had a brand new car. I was terrified. That the ice was gonna I don't know why I thought ice was going to damage my car because when it was raining. It's really wasn't rain. It was freezing rain. So as soon as it made contact it was immediately ice. I don't know how that works. But I remember at one point pulling over to the side of the road, and I got out and tried to scrape the window even more and the grass was totally covered in this ice as well..

"Colby, underscore, underscoring chat room linked to something. I didn't know just a thirty degree rule, which is saying that the that that basically when you're doing when you're transition between two camera doing a cut, that the second, the camera you're going to should be at least thirty degrees different in where oriented perspective is to the subject as the first cut was. Does that make sense? Should move at least thirty degrees with with position of second camera from the first one. So thank you. Culpa underscore for that. I didn't know about that one. So, yeah. So that's ultimately though you're getting really good at this like you can see a progression of what you're doing and problems you're solving. As you go. You can see like when you when you watch your videos in order you can see how you're getting better. It's it's pretty notable. I would say. You have almost completely solved York in-car audio challenges. Good, good. And that's a big one that's that was I know that was really hard and that was that was an area that really needed it before and pretty good like the in car lava Lear, Mike stuff you did was pretty good. There were a few places where you clipped when and you can hear the clippings and they were, I would suggest doing some level compression and volume level matching their wasted this in various absent things that I can maybe tell you about some time. I don't know, but. But yes, there are a few issues of level matching where, like, you know, one recording session would be much louder than the other one or whatever, but it was better on this one than it's been in the past videos for sure. In that way and the in car audio was way better, but the lovelier Mike, the other thing is the placement of it was such that when you would turn your head over the shoulder, your mouth, get closer to the mic way louder and that you can. You can play with the positioning of it and maybe the direction Allie of it. You can play with that a little bit. Ultimately, that always happens with lava layers to some degree. So what you should probably do there is look into level compression in volume normalization where like you just compressor level such that no matter where your head was turned you sound roughly of similar loudness. This is not an easy problem to solve it is solvable this what people do. But for the most part, pretty good content wise. I loved a lot of this. I love the part, especially about the transmission preference and like..

Just with the with the hundred and thirty degree temperatures Mike Raj. Can get, up to during the, summertime right like I don't wanna keep gasoline in it so it works great.

If the government can use it why. Can't I the government could use that with the volt stating that. You know that it gets cert and so these, are? The lies that were told we always had.

It can be anywhere between fifty and eighty thousand miles have been driven on, that car, with the global warming gases it's put into the atmosphere and it's still sitting on the, dealership parking lot Yeah you have to look at again the very beginning of the mining of.

Entire bias fear of the planet earth which is a guess If you're completely wrong on the, solutions how can I trust that you're. Correct on the problem yeah that's the that that that's what this comes down to is that there really hasn't been a, peer to peer debate In the scientific community well we talk about the the info that came out the study that came out yesterday What's the country that leads and reducing global warming gases the one that Said we're not going to be in the, Paris climate accord Kyoto protocol. Forget about that Europe that is signed all these, environmental deals they're still putting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere United States because of fracking that is hated, by environmentalists and places like New York completely ban them That's.
