Sell Me Your Climate Bombs
"Okay. So there are countless outdated old refrigerant tanks scattered around the country and Tim and Gabe say that the problem is you cannot just dump these tanks in the trash you wanted to take it to a dump, their knocking ticket they'll say, no, no that stuff's like hazardous material we don't want here. Material. The only thing you're allowed to dump, there is the empty tank when it's all gone. So you're really stuck it sits there on your shelf you have no use for and it's eventually going to leak through these cylinders cans into the atmosphere. If you're a professional like an auto mechanic or an H. back installer or if you're just one of those tinkers who hangs out at autozone, you might have one of these bad band canisters and. You could pay to safely dump the chemical out, but only a few places in the US will even do it and it's expensive. That's why they're canisters of this stuff just sitting in old garages rusting away and leaking leaking a greenhouse gas that is thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide and getting rid of refrigerant is one of the most important things we can do to address climate change according to a leading climate solutions organization called drawdown. which is why Tim, and Gabe have come all the way to the gas station in middle of Nowhere Illinois to meet a man in a red jeep renegade named Geoffrey. Geoffrey. Geoffrey is standing next to a two foot tall canister refrigerant that people might recognize by its common name Freon. Jim In fact recognizes the brand name Dupont igloo. So what does this is? igloo Freon twelve. So where did you What did you find the material? Jeffrey says a friend gave it to him years ago Kim asks him if he was in the Business Jeffrey no but my friend was he said he got the refrigerant because he figured maybe he'd use it in the systems of antique cars that he was thinking about rebuilding, but he never got around to it. Nineteen years. Business on shelf shop. How did you hear US oft up on my facebook one day At this out of the blue, a facebook ad popped up that said, we pay good money for old refrigerant Jeffrey. I have some of that answered the Ad, and now here we are Tim and Gabe take a sample from Geoffrey. They do a couple of calculations where they add up the weight of all the refrigerant and have Geoffrey signs informs you're signing here that your. This is your material. Now you're handing over to us. You're also a test saying that it was sourced within the United States and not the US government or a native American tribe. Correct correct. Okay. And then gables out a wad of bills and starts flowing them one by one into Jeffrey's hand. Material. So. Shop. The Money. Except for the signing of the receipt and everything, it feels almost like a drug deal cash transaction in this dusty remote middle of nowhere. Tim wouldn't tell US exactly how much changed hands but he said it was in the low hundreds and yet this is Tim Gabes legitimate business. Their company is called trade water and they make pickups like this of all sizes from a one pound can the size of a spray paint bottle tweet forty, thousand pound job they did a while back where they vacuumed the refrigerant out of an old industrial cooling system after a bit of Chitchat Tim and Gabe wrap up with Geoffrey Geoffrey tells them. If he hears anyone else with spare refrigerants, he'll send them their way. Right on. Jeffrey how is that? That was painless was. Is If you find anymore you know where to call welcome you John Here In Europe somebody's got one of the. Transaction. Takes care. Did you hear that Tim just said we'll take good care of it for you. Yeah. Well, me and my how to Save Planet Co host we're listening in on this deal. Of course, we're on facetime with them and my co host name is Hannah Elizabeth Johnson. She's a scientist and she and I asked him and Gabe about that particular comment and you said we'll take good care of this for you. Because you you aren't GonNa take good care of it. You'RE GONNA destroyed. Exactly. Probably not We, don't really. We don't really talk about that very much. Yeah. They transfer all the gas from the little tank they collect into a huge tank that looks kind of like a missile and then they drive that missile looking tank to a fancy destruction facility. Essentially, an incinerator permited hazardous waste. Rotary, King Incinerator. So you burn it we burn you burn. Your like setting it on fire and we are. Do you see gas in flames? Is that what it looks like? We don't generally watch it being burned. View, it's see to their view window flame. Yeah. A big bright flame incinerating refrigerants at this special facility actually neutralizes most of the dangerous stuff ninety, nine, point, nine, nine percent of the bad stuff doesn't go out into the atmosphere time bomb diffused, which if you're trying to address global warming, this is a fantastic thing right after all this is Tim and Gabes mission. So, why don't they tell their customers about it? Well Gabe says, their customers aren't always on board with that mission. In fact, a lot of them don't even believe global warming is real. This is A. Farce that's been pulled by the EPA or a U.. N. and so people will hang up and say I'm not going to sell to you. I'm GonNa find someone else who's GonNa use this the way it was meant to be used. Now some people are really attached to their to their refrigerant. So now generally. Advertised we're gonNA destroy because we just never know somebody that will make people uninterested in the deal. That's interesting because it seems like. Is My co host I oughta it's all over your website, right? Like your website makes it pretty clear why you're doing this and if people are finding you through facebook ads they. Already know are you on the trade water website? Yeah. So. When we do these transactions, we actually use a different name doing business. Call refrigerant finders. Go to refrigerant finders website. You will see a different framing of what we do. The homepage of the treated water website has the words reducing the world's carbon footprint in big letters huge font over background of leafy Green Fernley. The refrigerant find a website there no leaves there's no mention of climate change. It just says we buy your old refrigerant and has pictures of men in work boots carrying around rest canisters.
Illegal Raves Fill 'Cultural Void' in Britain Amidst Coronavirus
"The night time economy has been hit hard by the pandemic nightclubs have been forced to close putting deejays and promoters out of. There that just because the clubs are closed, doesn't mean the party's destroyed. In Britain legal raves are enjoying something of a revival. Frankly right throughout Britain for the economist, the met police has recorded more than thousand raves in the last few months and many people are saying this is kind of a throwback to the late eighty s and early ninety s back. Then illegal acid house parties started happening all over the country. What are these raves actually like the traditional stereotype, his house techno music taking place in an abandoned warehouse or something things are a bit different. Now over the summer at least they've tended to happen in big outdoor spaces, kind of in the middle of nowhere, and the kind of music really varies depending on the event to so now do still play House and techno, but also are and be drum and bass a few weeks ago. There was a big rave in a tiny Welsh village called Babylon three and a half thousand people turned up but it's really all because of the closure of nightclubs. Choose to the pandemic lockdown as revive that spirit of acid house and really hard and Ravers who have nowhere else to go have turned to illegal parties again, and he's the revival of raving entirely result of the pandemic largely. But even before the pandemic rates for making a bit of a comeback covid of accelerated that trend, the revival was a result of expensive rents in big cities, which made it harder for nightclubs on cheap nights and also precarious operating licenses to big venues of how to pass that cost onto clubbers entry to print works, which is a big factory turned club in southeast London. Forty pounds just for a night and drugs and much less tolerated to oversee an illegal rave while they're much cheaper because have to deal with licensing and venue costs, and also there are no rules because it's illegal he can do whatever you like these ours you say illegal raves. So how the authorities cracking down on them authorities are having a really hard time trying to stop them because they will happening at such a low level. It wasn't too much for problem of there being A. Resurgence. Now, the approach, the the police and the government seems to be taking is deterrent in recent weeks new finds of being introduced by the government of up to ten thousand pounds for the organizers of these parties. But the big fines aren't having that much of an effect because it's very difficult to work out who's organizing them in the first place and that's because they're so secretive locations are often kept quiet until the last minute and even then details only shared with a ten dis. Through. Private channels like what's happened instagram messages, which is actually quite similar to the nineteen eighty s and ninety s when people would have to phone number from a phone box to find out where a policy was happening all the legal alternatives for UK Ravens than there aren't really at the moment. So in recent weeks, some music events have started up again but much more tame that kind of socially distance concerts happening in traditional venues, some promoters have tried to organize legal socially distance raves. I spoke to one organizer who said he put on the first, which is very early lockdown. He had seven hundred and fifty people applies account but could only let in forty people even then the police still turned up and try to shut it down until it was explained that it was going on legally this week actually new restrictions which limit social gatherings are the indoor or outdoors to six people have come in making it even more difficult to organize one of these events safely and legally. Six people doesn't sound like much of a rave. Is there a safe way to do this independent nick? Honestly not really it's obviously very hard socially distant set arrive. There have been the helping of criticism within the music industry of so-called Plague Raves in countries where venues have reopened as they haven't in Britain yet nightclubs have been criticized on any kind of events at all contributing to spikes in resurgences in the virus. One case of this is in south, Korea which did. Very well, it containing the virus. But when things thought reopened a number of cases with trace back to to some nightclubs in Seoul and that led to a huge amount of criticism within the press and in society as well. Just dougherty runs legal acid house parties in London, and he's one of the many deejays who calling people out for throwing playgroups

The price of rare plants
"Right. Now it's time to talk about rare plants and when this turned into a ranch, I wanted to be a reasoned argument but I hope that this will give you pause for thought about what's happening in the house blunt world right now, I guess I got really alarmed about plant prices. When applaud the I've been lusting after suddenly went up in price. As many of you know through the podcast I've been looking for a piece of Panteli sensation, a cultivar of tons of area. Correctly Justina As been moved to the dressier genus, the snake plant, I've been looking for. Peace or a plant of this particular offer longtime. Now, for some reason, while they're common in the US, they just aren't that common here in the UK and I haven't found a shop selling them I think couple of people found a plot shop in Poland selling them, but I still do not have one of these plants. So I. Put an Ebay search save out there. So that anytime anyone put one of these plants on Ebay. I. Would know a few months ago the last cutting that I had been watching the last pup that I've been watching when I think he has for about twenty five pounds and I missed out on time because I thought that's a bit expensive. Anyway another pop came up from the same seller I think very recently about two or three weeks ago. I was Kinda getting excited because the price was still quite low are and all watching the countdown and the price was still about ten pounds and I thought. The chance here? How much did it go for? It went for it went for about eighty seven pounds. For a tiny stick of a snake blunt. Thanks to the listeners by the way who offered to send me a piece of their bench Elson session from the US very kind of you. But I don't think it's a good idea given plant health and spread of diseases to be importing individual plants from the US plus. Don't think it's worth it for the air. BYLES. Of course, there are other house plants that are going for much much more. The headline in The New York Post recently was some sucker in New Zealand just spent five thousand dollars on a house plant. There was a variegated rafic for a test drive perma with variation, the basically split relief in half between the regular caller and sort of golden yellow. and. That plot went for eight thousand, one hundred fifty New Zealand dollars on the site trade me nuts about five thousand. Dollars in other words, a lot of money and there is a track record for plants on this trade me site going for a lot. There was a Hoya I think it was a Hoya compactor with the reverse fair Gatien the way for six and a half thousand New Zealand dollars. A before POPs a couple of months before I'm, and of course, we all know about the variegated monster at unsown. With those little holy leaves marked with cream the have also gone for some really interested. High prices recently, this has been building for a while. Now, this trend towards rare or Unicorn House Plaza cost a lot of money but I think that lockdown has exacerbated this desire for plants as lots of people who want to. Live and up their Home Office of got into the House plant thing during lockdown adjust desperate for these very, very rare loans. And I think we've really got to take the long view about this in that planck. Crazies are really nothing you. My first thought is back to the fern craze in the mid eighteen hundreds I wasn't there I'm not quite that old over my children would probably beg to differ. So in the mid eighteen hundreds around the world. There was a firm fever that really took of people and lots of women in particular were going out and bought an ising and looking for funds in the wild and buying. Funds from nursery such as the famous and now defunct lodges of London with the huge glasshouses, and these were really desirable things to own back. Then the talent teradata mania was coined by Sir Charles Kingsley and he wrote your daughter's perhaps I've been seized with the prevailing Tareyton mania and are collecting bind funds with wards cases where into keep them for it's you have to pay and wrangling over unpronounceable names of species which seemed to be different in each new book that they buy till the territory mania seems to you somewhat of a ball. So that might be familiar. Scenario of of wrangling over the names and buying the special equipment, the wards cases, which is just the original server terrariums plots in. So that is an illustration of the fact, this is not a new a new thing. Plunk raises a bit around forever I mean even Coleus those cheapest chips plants that you can buy very very easily are certainly not subject to a premium. These days were at one point something, very new, exciting and expensive. If you check out Dr Catherine, Horwitz Book Potted Histories, you'll find out that a dozen new coleus hybrids sold at auction by the RHS's one, hundred, sixty, eight when for three, hundred, ninety pounds. How much three hundred ninety pounds is worth today about thirty thousand pounds so As I say it's not new and equally even further back in history chilly fever and sixteen thirties same time citrus trees also massive status symbol mainly because you needed an orangerie to keep them in. So. Wild prices for applauds are nothing new
The Greatest Barn Finds of All Time
"Barn fines. The long lost cars with a built in mystery, we're addicted to these lost and found time capsules partly because of the story they tell about the past but also of how they feel in the president like something that time traveled into. Now with decades old potential waiting to be tapped and to be clear, these cars don't need to be found in a barn. Okay. Today are barn finds come from parking garages and Australian chicken coop and even buried underground some because. What's the rarest car ever found? What's the most valuable and how did these automotive treasures get lost in the first place? A normal person loses their car keys once in a while. But who is the person that can lose an entire car? especially one like a prototype shelby Mustang or a LAMBORGHINI MIRA s here's a hint. They're usually very rich people. We'll also get into Wi Carr fans continue to love these barn fines. Maybe an age where literally all the information in the world sits in our pocket. The idea of hidden treasure is more precious than ever before and with so many cars feeling blander and more mass produced than ever unique cars feel rare than ever to a barn find always has its own one of a kind story behind it. So I think that's a really good point I would say that like barn finds potentially like. Don't exist in the way that they used to because to me a barn find. Also. Suggest some sort of like. Deal or like you. You know what? I. Mean Like it's like, Oh, I found this car. Then I bought it for this much money whereas like now the person. Can just google it like I know I I make a living everyone in this makes a living talking about cars on the Internet, but the Internet is ruined cars everything is valuable now. Yeah. It tennis sucks I. Think it hasn't ruined the joy of driving or getting to experience like new things in that way, but I see what you're saying whereas. A lot of things are described value immediately, which I I really hate God on bring a trailer this week there is some Honda accord from the mid seventies that sold for like twenty one thousand dollars and I was like that car it's not worth that amount of money just because it's A condition four thousand dollars to a huge Honda accord. But because like there's such a hype around like Oh man this is like in this such and such condition with this miles and it's There's only so many of them like that's when money kind of ruins it in that culture of like wanting to have. A car that valuable I don't know the same thing happened though like fifteen years ago with barn find particularly mopus because those cars Warner's common back in the day. So when people found like Barracuda or Challenger sitting somewhere in a barn there like a meal like discards worth a million dollars no rusty piece of. and. It's only worth a million dollars if it was original parts matching everything. But because you found some shell behind your uncle's place, it doesn't mean Jack it's. Clearly. Look I'm a I'm a bitter Mo- par, Guy. It's been the the the. Been in completely over inflated, which is why I had to buy an imperial instead of like a real muscle car. Of. This attitude that everything has to be some crazy valuable car for to be cool which is not true. Your car is really cool knowing don't feel bad about but Joe, I know I don't know any sometimes Nolan's car. No one's cars parked at my house sometimes I go and sit in it I I. I'm glad. It's fun. It's like I said Mitt I think like when the Sun's going down. Unlike man, this thing is going to be cool when it runs, we'll be it's it's I ordered a bunch of brake parts which have arrived James outs There might be some more boxes on the way, but I'm GONNA refresh the brake system, and after that, the big hurdle becomes getting the car to run and that's when I can find out what else needs to be fixed. So. is it are you converting from drum brakes disc? No, it's. It's got drum brakes around. So I ordered a bunch of drum brake. Specific stuff like. Brake shoes and wheel cylinders. Brake lines return springs all this stuff I also live on the top of a gigantic hill. It's to be a real trial by fire situation. We're going to go around your little neighborhood there first before we do anything drastic. This is like a seventeen thousand pound rockets. Zooming down. Well, we know that we know the break works. So let's get right into. Finally. With what might be the OG OF BARN FINES? All right. This car probably has the record for the longest time hidden away it spent. Okay. You guys ready for this. One hundred and twelve years sitting in a shed in Austria before being uncovered in two thousand fourteen. Wow. The car I'm talking about is the Porsche p one also known as the Edgar Lunar Electric Vehicle, and even calling a car might be a bit of a stretch, Armstrong whatever you WanNa call though what's not up for debate is that the P. One is the world's first ever Porsche designed by then twenty three year old Ferdinand Porsche Ferdinand even employees the nineteenth century version of a watermark actually hand carving P. One into every individual component of the car. So like you mentioned, this is parts numbers matching Baoji are all original equipment the
NASA Technology Designed to Turn Space Trash into Treasure
"Astronauts don't WanNa sit in their trash. So a team at NASA is working on a solution they call Oscar this innovation. Now, an astronaut crew of four on a mission to the Moon Omar's will generate over five thousand pounds of trash in a year. Here's any Meyer, a chemical engineer at NASA Kennedy Space Center to talk trash. So some of the items that actually get turned into waste include food. So there's the food packaging. We also have things like hygiene items. So we have hygiene wipes, tooth pays you know bristles from the toothbrush. Any type of wash cloths since there's no showers and we also don't washing machines on spacecraft at the moment. So all of the crews clothing become trash and there's also things like nitrile gloves, duct tape, packaging material. So these are the types of things that we put into our reactor to convert it into the guess. NASA's. Sin Gas Commodity Augmentation, reactor processes small pieces of trash in a high temperature reactor effectively turning trash into usable resources
Ritz and Robocalls with Rory
"We've come to learn and thanks to a report I have to say on this. On. This. New. Be Startup. This news organization called the BBC Brewery. I didn't know if you've heard of your. Report by my colleague Chris Fox. You're on the wonderful Chris Fox. I'm never sure how many exits he should have his name. It's up for debate sometimes he has to he has reported about a scam which is alarmingly convincing and has been targeting diners at the okay. Could it fool me? Do you think well? Maybe. You're you're very cynical crow in your very skeptical especially. Good. Let's be Kinda. You're very careful about your personal information. You're the only person I know who actually reads privacy policies in terms and conditions that worry does. Know. Exactly exactly. Well, what happened was this? So there are folks out there who are making bookings at the Ritz Restaurant. You know they're not put off by the titles of pot plants being bugged and they're doing this online or maybe they're doing it by Nicole gets popular at the Ritzy met book weeks and weeks in advance he can't just show up right I, try to without tie and. Somewhere, head and then a day or two for your booking you get a phone call. From the Ritz Reservations Department okay. And you know it's the Ritz reservations department. Because they say it's the Ritz reservations. Department. Right and that's that's that. That'd be well, it would. It would because date four year restaurant you're expecting it and fancy restaurants do that. So that's nothing out of the ordinary. But even if even if you were a little bit surprised, they were ringing, you can check the number that they're bringing on and what you find when you look at your my microphone, whatever caller ID is that the number matches? Interesting teased the Ritz and they go further to make this call even more convincing. They confirm your restaurant booking details. You know they said. Smashing Security Christmas Eve tables five thousand whatever it is that we you know. Sandwiches. SBP amazing. We're going to bring all the listeners that's right by the way we. Invited. This sounds like Kermode, a Mayo's cruise to listen to what are they having a cruise. They have a cruise every year. listenership gets. So you'd be out done well, I don't know if I'd WanNa to cruise during a pandemic it's not gone down well for many of them. Who suffered data breaches will be. Idea that we could har- repeatedly war to grow. Listen, bring the bring the listeners of tech ten with us. Definitely. They confirm those details and you think he's the rates and then they look to make the booking. We need to confirm some details just need confirm your credit card details. You.

Obviously, don't scam people. Eighteen quit club sandwiches. Poor people aren't going to. Cure the. agonize. Club sandwiches that anyway well, the scammers have now got your car details and what do these scammers do having stolen the credit card details from people who dine at the Ritz. They, take those credit card details and they spend thousands of pounds with those credit card details. At all goals. The. Countless. The no longer catalog catalog company. You know they've stopped their catalog. Cuts look and I've read somewhere online. You can find all their catalogs since nineteen, seventy four. Put. them all up. So you can actually go back and see what was available at the early days. I think for listeners overseas, we should explain more Agassi's because we had a certain reaction to that. It's a bit like less posh L.l Bean I. Think it's more like communist Russia before the fall of the. Hey, that sounds great. Because you go to an Argos and you're told, please go to till a B or C and you queue there. Yes. Well, yeah it's it's it's it's actually quite an innovative. It's But like foyle's bookshop in very. Over Meghan me years ago when you went into the venerable falls bookshop on the terron crossroad and you bought it a poke you had to. You could just buy you have to go and go to till saying wait for somebody to handcrafted for eventually. Foils is an extraordinary experience anyway. As the BBC is the venerable BBC reports if the bank spotted that suspicious August transaction, you don't normally spend thousand pounds or. How many pools do you need sir? The scammer moans the victim up again, this time pretending to be from their bank. And what they do holes they say. Someone's just try to use your credit card Argos. We're GONNA cancel the transaction. Can you just read out the security code which you just been sent new microphone to make sure we talking to the right person? It's pretty sneaky now. One thing I didn't get is how are these? Miscreants getting my phone number in the first place that is the sixty four thousand dollar question. Isn't it? Yeah. Because this data was presumably stored by the Ritz when when people were up and booked in the first place. Who knows how the Ritz is storing the information? Are they putting it down a little piece of paper and sticking it to the wall? I have they got an excel spreadsheet? Have they got some properly or antiquated in carefully password protected database No you know Oh. Okay I didn't realize they have admitted that they know they suffered some kind of data breach involving their reservations department. Insider job anyone walnut suppose ability as well. Isn't it? Could on the inside? Who could be turned off? So we don't really know, but it's it's quite sneaky. Now, one of the potential victims, this told the BBC that this whole thing happened to them, but they were able to dump found the scammer and the way in which they did is they said, they asked they asked that cooler specific questions about the hotel's facilities. The scammer wasn't able to ans-. Okay.

AELTC Announces Prize Money in Lieu of Championships 2020 Alongside Initial Decisions for The Championships 2021
"Had news this week from Wimbledon. Pretty incredible news has to be said you know all of the ways that tennis has sort of disgraced itself. During this weird periods, it kind of feels like in one wave of the Magic Wand Wimbledon has been able to neutralize. Nullify all if that because. They have done the most classy thing they have put a a ten million pound prize pot aside. To. To distribute to the six hundred plus players would have been competing. Wimbledon in the main role, and in the qualifying draw as well I think twenty five thousand pounds to plays the would have. On on on current rankings been playing in the in the main draw and twelve and a half thousand to those that would have been in the qualifying draw and the reception to that. COMPLETELY UNPROMPTED MOVE! On social media has been incredible. People Have Been Pretty Pretty Bold David by the gesture actually and. Many have been making the point that kid that could save careers for a lot of people. In, the Lower Tiers of the sport that is the difference between. Being able to continue as a professional tennis player, not yeah, and they've also covered doubles players with a lower figure, but still you know a sizable amount of money for people who literally are not earning a penny right now unless they sought out. Giving tennis lessons or something like that. They are freelance contractors who are not playing tournaments are not earning money unless they can get into one of the the locally organized exhibitions matching and the same with the wheel champ as well. I mean this is A. Great Fund of money that has been put aside by Wimbledon. Who are? Covered by their pandemic insurance, which was just the most incredible foresight at the time, but I do love the way they have taken advantage of that great foresight, and the money that that is going to save them and decided okay. Let's spread the love around. Let's let's look the people that we rely on in order to be tournaments and. Just just really really impressive. And they've also. Giving money to officials who would have been working at the event? Sanctioned officials and international officials, he would have been working at the tournament so just around really really incredible gestures from Wimbledon. Both the generous gesture for sure, and but also really sensible. Macro. Way of viewing tennis a recognition of the fact that for Wimbledon to happen in be successful. You need tennis players, not just the top ones the multimillionaires you need. Hundred Twenty eight players in the drawer in need. A qualifying tournaments and you need wheelchair players and. Doubles players and this is these are the things that. That make grand. Slam tournaments the the peaceful thing that they are so. Yeah having having. Having that view of the sport and not just sort of myopic narrow one is. It's great to see actually. Also announced by Wimbledon this week is that they are doing away with the seeding formula on the men's side? So no more elevating Pete Sampras, from what was it seven in the world to top seed? Something like that. I mean. These days. The impact of that is pretty minimal in practical terms, but it's more sort of the the principle of it. I suppose in. The fact that the Wimbledon, a note, no longer be an outlier in those terms, and I think the way the formula works. If they'd had it next year, the most recent grass-court results that would have been impacting. The formula would have been from two years ago which. kind of doesn't feel that relevant so I think it kind of makes sense that it's that he's going now. kind of just seemed seem slightly unnecessary, especially with the Gross, not playing as differently as it used to back back when they first came up with the formula, so yeah, I think most people seem to think that it makes sense.

U.S. Air Force Launches Contest to Replace the B-52 Bomber’s Engine
"Here to talk about bombers. There is news just breaking as of May nineteenth the US Air Force kicked off a three way competition to reengineer. Its entire seventy six aircraft. Be Fifty two fleet and the the competitions going to be underway. They just released a request for proposals. Steve can you talk about what the Air Force is looking for? And what that means for the companies involved. Yes so on Tuesday evening or Tuesday late afternoon the Air Force released the our fee to start Step two of the engine source election the replacement for the Beef at T.F. Thirty Three's which You know design. That goes back about sixty years. And you've got three companies in the competition. Rolls Royce with the VR seventy five. Which for this competition. They're calling the effluent thirty We also have the engine. That's on the global six thousand that The Air Force is flying as as the e eleven As a communications relay. Pratt Whitney is competing with the w eight hundred which is another business jet engine and you've got Ge that has said that they are looking at offering either or both of the CF. Thirty four engine actually started out with the. A ten In still in service with the ten. But it's gone onto power of regional jets and Also it's passport engine. Which is the propulsion system on the bombard? Da Global Seven thousand business jet. So those are the those are the three competitions with air forces looking for is a new propulsion system. That as what what they say is basically the T.F. Thirty-three has kind of come to the end of its life beyond twenty thirty. They don't really see. You're very viable way of sustaining it. And keeping it in service. But of course they've decided that the B fifty two will continue operating beyond twenty fifty so they need something under the wings of those aircraft. Keep them flying and they're looking for something that it can extend the range by twenty five percent that can add a bunch of loiter time to the B fifty two's mission set and They won't cost too much and that they can integrate as quickly as possible. So that's that's where we are with the competition Steve Guy. Can you tell us a little bit of it? Gives us a little more sense of the engines? That will be competing. Hard High State Yeah I it's fascinating to me that this is competition is underway. It's it's really difficult to believe that in the early two thousands that they looked at this in the nineteen seventies even looked. This goes back a long way. Pratt and Whitney originally proposed a you know of the upgrades the T.F. Thirty three which courses based on the original J. Three engine that Pratt went. They developed some back in the in the late. Fifties and early sixties. Rolls Royce of course came really close more recently With an offbeat till Evan Option in the mid. Nineteen nineties with with Boeing as a team So it's been an ongoing thing but that was was four engines to replace AIDS so this is different. Because you've got eight engines. Replace eight engine. So how could that possibly work? So the the reason it can work is that over the last fifty years which is really the length of the of this program The original engine. If it's hard to imagine this but the actual fan amit served Pratt and Whitney engine that the the one that's on the inevitable at thirty three is about fifty inches the inlet itself and yet the bypass ratio. Which is you know the key parameter ready for the performance of this Is Only one point. Four three two one but all of the engines that nabbing pushed through for this replacement here. We are fifty years later. They're all between four point. Two to five point five to one bypass ratio but basically in the same diamonds and that reflects the fact that all those cores of shrunk at in you've got much more efficient fan flow and that so here you are bringing in these twenty-first-century engines however just to clarify that One of those engines at state mentioned. Jeez pushing forward with the CF thirty four DASH sandwiches one option. That engine actually will be this year celebrating. I believe it's twenty eight anniversary so it's it's not a near engine itself. Likud's relative to what it's replacing it still a youngster. Really Oli others estate mentioned on new business jet engines up just a little bit of sort of back of the envelope. Calculation and based on the published data that we've got. It's quite interesting. You look at the actual weight that bear way to each of these engines and do a quick so a calculation it at the moment they the tip thirty three. The ship said of bear engines weighs about thirty five thousand pounds. That's just mean a mechanical gear on on the on the pylon not including the case sings or even sometimes accessories. If you look at the calculated waits for the others the passport which is the other g engine would actually weigh slightly more about thirty six thousand the prod engine the Peterloo eight hundred which state mentioned which is the The J. Six hundred five hundred engine is sly is actually the lowest just under twenty five thousand. Pansy got an interesting calculation going on that but basically they're all within about three inches of each other in terms of inlet diameter all within a few hundred pounds thrust so it's very complicated competition and a very interesting calculus that the Athol is GonNa have to go through.
How I Built Resilience
"Hey welcome back to how. I built this resilience edition so we just heard from some industrial. Who actually started her. Culinary career at Chez Panisse in Berkeley and. Her Mentor was none other than Alice. Waters Alice daughter Fanny Singer. Join me to talk about how shape unease is doing during the crisis and how we can keep local farmers and business by buying straight from the source Finney. I know that you are sheltering place that your mom right now in Berkeley of all. How are you guys doing? How are you holding up? It's it's sort of strange very surreal. Moment I live in San Francisco and I do still have apartment there. But you know it's a one bedroom apartment and my partner and I are together. We both were working at home. And there's no outdoor space than being in Berkeley was not just to be with my mom who I obviously concerned about to. Just because I wanted to fee `sort sort of insane person about disinfecting nail and all the things in a little bit more German centric than my mother so these things were these work concerns of mine but also I mean to be Berkeley in a place that has really rich outdoor environmental NGO to walk through one hundred thirty seven pad this in the hills of the Berkeley into just feel to walk for ten. Miles is like the only thing I think kind of keeping me from total insanity. Alice tell us a little bit about. What's going on with Chez Panisse right now? Obviously you've been closed for five. Maybe six weeks. What's going on with the staff right now. We really paid the step their time off so that when it comes time to reopen that they would be there and available we had the good luck to get a kind of bridge loan from some wonderful friends of the restaurant that are helping us get to the point where money comes from the government to pay people. Some are on unemployment and some are being paid a portion of their salaries. But it's really important to me that people are paid at this time. If I have to ask my friends I have my friends Alice. One of the things I read about which is super cool. is that Obviously you work with a lot of small farmers all over California and a lot of these farmers presumably. I mean they supply restaurants so first of all from your conversations with with farmers that you work with you supply your restaurant and other restaurants. I mean what is their situation like I mean? How long can they go like this without having restaurants to supply? It's very serious. What's going on with our whole organic farm community because they really have a only the farmers markets to bring food to and the number of people that are going to farmers markets is not what it usually is so. We're trying to figure out how to buy that food from the farmers and we have a project in Stockton California The mayor of Stockton is very enthusiastic about getting or Ganic Food in the public school system and serve at this moment in time. He asked if we could help buy food from the farmers said that he can give an stockton and I thought that that would be a perfect way for us to begin building that network that we're going to need for the public schools and were putting little recipes into the box so that people know how to make very simple dishes and may given at least four thousand pounds of food away in Stockton Alice. I I mean you've talked about this for years that when you were a little girl. Your parents had a victory garden at home in New Jersey and that you really are encouraging people to plant their own. Things actually inspired me so much. I've got some ceilings. Here can you see some big lettuce there? You go and I'M GONNA hopefully. That'll be lettuce in a couple of months. I mean I don't have a big backyard. I have a small space and got a planter but for people who don't have a backyard who might live in an apartment I mean what are some ways that people can think about growing their own food that keeps looking at Brown Finley and he started by chanting food out in front of his house? In that little parkway between the sidewalk and the street and it caused a lot of controversy and he actually cited for violating. Some ordinance got any went to court. He wanted his case and he actually has planted that whole strip of land. So sort of thinking about him. I did the same thing I cup. That little plop right in front of my Bad I think you can plant like you have done and planter boxes on a balcony. I hope that the community gardens began to surge research and unite. My mom planted the little section. That's just in front of our house because even though we do have a garden in the back she wanted people to think about this victory garden moment and the potential for even the most throwaway pieces of land. It's now planted with a few different edible things and she's already gotten notes through our mailbox thanking her for taking this kind of actions embolic being encouraging people. And you've just seen this proliferation of gardens now in people's sort of little forgotten front yards and people sowing seeds all around the neighborhood now and way. It's really incredible. I've just never seen anything like it before you know. One of the things that you've talked about is the idea of buying local produce supporting local farmers wherever you are in the country around the world and you know one of the questions that that we're getting from folks on facebook Tuesday from Bell Zelezny also which what are ways that we can help. Small farmers are other ways of their places where we can go buy things from them especially farmers who are used to providing restaurants. I if you are at a loss for who you're farmers are do. The work researching call the pharmacy. Are you having trouble? Are you imperilled? Is there a way that I can help? You facilitate a network of deliveries. Can I help you deliver? But also it might be a question of just helping them figure out logistics or even knowing who they are. Where their farms are I mean? I have friends in. La The lines were so long that they weren't able to get any food so they just started figuring out who the farms were that they could drive out to so they could still got great produce. And I mean it's been a little bit more problem solving and resourceful and also knowing that the farmers are maybe really good at growing vegetables. That don't necessarily know how to work. A whole distribution network. And if that's something that you have extra time for facility with like make the effort because they do need us

"Like ten thousand pounds at the courthouse this made of this really heavy African wood and it's really gorgeous so it's one of those things where people often say like that that giant chess piece yeah I was like right by the Starbucks the threat the Starbucks in the central west end of that giant chess piece exactly and you see people out there taking photos in front of it all the time non chess players you'll see bridal showers wedding parties be out there of you know in the fall down and everything right for the giants because somebody saw a couple weeks ago someone proposing in front of it so it's become one of those Instagram a little spots you have the Grand Canyon any of the giant chest threatening good either one of the chess pieces right here so it's easy to get to I grew up playing sports ice hockey tennis soccer and it always felt like there was this dichotomy between the kids who played sports in the kids who played chess and I think there are stereo types of chess bean lands forty but at the same time the most universal metaphor in sports football hockey whatever is that hello this is a chess match however in the end game now the end really don't use using chess terminology and you know I was not really familiar at all with the world of chess until I saw a documentary on Magnus Carlsson and it captivated me it was so engaging and I realized I had the wrong perception of chess it's a it's something of a blood sport and I didn't realize that and Magnus drew me in because he's this young cool kid from Norway rise in our waiter yep this young cool kid and he is the Mozart of chess he plays artfully instinctively he plays with guts and that documentary opened up a whole New World for me and I'm sure you guys see this a lot you meet people have preconceived ideas of what chess is and you say no it's actually challenging and exciting and subversive in chess is cool it's funny if you go into any of the classrooms where we teach us you know probably a hundred schools in the Saint Louis area right now you'll notice that the kids who play chess are no different than the rest of the kids in fact the kids who play chess are very often the kids were on the the football teams that are on the baseball teams and all the other sports as well so gotta Kim scheme was a is a chess player American chess player he played for the World Championship one time and he was asked the same kind of question is you know is in charge just for the elite for the door works for the old people like all the stereo types so CD which as he said you know chess is is all of these things it's a science it's a sport it's an art you know whenever I play a game of chess I try to make a beautiful I try to make the pieces harmonize I try to make the game beautiful whatever I'm preparing for that game I'm looking at my opponents lines in openings and ideas that they play looking for any weaknesses in their armor so it's very much this scientific approach to any seven when I'm sitting at the board I'm very practical I try to make psychologically challenging moves for my opponent and in that aspect it's very much a sport one of us has to win this game right and so you know yes chess does have a little bit of that door keys science see kind of a mental aspect to it but it has every bit as much a a physical sport aspect to it also you know they were your heart monitor sometimes in these chess tournaments you'll see chess players just before their winning or just before they're losing their heart rate will spike up like the running a marathon you know the world chess hall of fame a lot of us don't have the same trust backgrounds that a lot of the people do at the chess club and so some of us are coming at it is like an artistic approach or just a general learning and so I always kind of say that like my job is to make trust fund and accessible to everybody and I and I can second that Magnus documentary because I was watching it you know for researchers and I thought I'll just watch twenty minutes a day I'm not going to sit down and watch the whole documentary and I watch the first twenty minutes and I thought I have to watch that I couldn't I didn't I watched it the whole yes through it is really good and I think that there's a lot of movies out there now and a lot more information that's making trust seem more just part of the mainstream absolutely I think one of the reasons why trust me seem so difficult or so the barrier to entry may seems so high right is that you see these guys like Magnus and they play chess like you said like Mozart composed I mean he is the quintessential example of the best chess player maybe ever right like no one looks at Mozart goes I can do that right call the house player club player like myself you know we're just as bad as everybody else a chance we drop or pieces and make mistakes all the time the great thing about the club is that there's a little bit of everything for folks so if you want to be that serious chess player and you want to you know come in here and do your best and try to get the highest rating you can you can do that but if you're like me and you're just a casual player you do it as a socializing activity you hang out with your friends and enjoy you can do that too so that's the great thing about the game is all the facets I would say we're gonna talk more about the world chess hall of fame when we get back because the chess hall of fame is not just chess it's climate change and.

The for the first half of twenty eighteen in Texas, obviously, a lot of SUV's and pick up. But also, I've I've heard in the past the lack of sidewalks can factor into this to sidewalks are very important for pedestrian safety is street lighting at night. So there are a number of infrastructure issues that are essential to protect pedestrians walking at night people very vulnerable. We're no match on foot for a two thousand pound vehicle. And so every effort has to be made to identify a roadway features. That can enhance pedestrian safety keeping in mind, though, that it takes a very long time to modify the infrastructure. Some of the more promising approaches are focusing on vehicle safety features. For example, we're seeing in new cars, pedestrian detection, crash, avoidance technology. These kinds of features can be more rapidly introduced into the environment then adding sidewalks, although we'd love to see sidewalks added, of course, now more than a third of the infidelities happened on local streets. So the others are happening on highways or long ways surprisingly nationally about ten percent of pedestrian fatalities occur in interstate.

"So from twenty twelve to twenty seventeen growth in that industry increased by sixty one percent. Meanwhile, the milk industry has been in decline. So right now, dairy farmers are faced with this glut of milk. And while they do blame, you know, the almond milk industry on the milk industry for declining sales. There are other reasons for why there are problems with the milk industry and why we're seeing this glut of milk. So right now better genetics means that cows produce more milk. And so you're seeing this pretty drastic increase from the nineteen twenties to today in the amount of milk produced per cow. So cows in the nineteen twenties produced about four thousand pounds of milk per year. Whereas today they produce. Twenty two thousand pounds of milk, which is a huge amount. I mean, but that's incredible productivity games. So, yeah, I mean. Isn't it? It probably also reflects a change in the way forms work where like he used to be that most farms had cows and chickens like Capela cows had chickens.

"About eight or nine thousand pounds of corn before week and anywhere from fifteen to twenty thousand pounds of trauma. But we also sell a couple thousand pounds at turkeys and a couple of thousand pounds of briskets and and hot dogs. Being one of our biggest seller, it's weightwise isn't that much, but we'll sell about four thousand hotdogs a week. So let's let's talk about the pastrami. I wanna talk about the life of the pastrami had kind of how you oversee it is soon it starts with you actually buying the meat. Right. And are you in charge of that, or do you meet buyers? How does that work? Yeah, so I shop around for meat. We try not to go too far. We like meat from upstate or from a midwest, you know, maybe lower parts of Canada, but things sort of within a day or two drive nothing too far away. And we have different people that will buy from indifferent purveyors. So we. We kind of scope that out price it out bittered l. and and then we get that raw meat in and then that meat is cured, which is pickling, you know, it's all the same process. It's salt water. It's the the oldest trick in the book spends about three to four weeks in that process, and then it gets smoked with a dry rub applied to it, which is this wonderful, you know, rich flavor and smell it salt. It's peppers, garlic. It's coriander. It's all these things that really hit your taste buds and then and when it smoking, you get these wood chips blending into it. And that's what makes me so unique. Traditionally, a push Rami is a naval cut of meat, though. I've seen other people do her fix things with other cuts of meat, but that would still be the same process as making pastrami. Once it is smoked, this is all happening in our smoke house. You bring it.
