"And also really just wants to watch that looks nice. So is that just Tim Cook? That's literally just Tim Cook. Yeah. I love that. I love it too. Didn't you mean people who train with spreadsheets? Maybe he does. He's spreadsheets for everything. I absolutely believed him has a spreadsheet for his exercise workout. Like his exercise routine. I traded a poll the other day to just because of the thought came to me that all the current tech CEOs have to be spreadsheet masterminds because they're all just like look at them. And I was like, who's the best excel power user? Is it cook nadella Pichai or Jeff Bezos? Who is no longer the C of Amazon, but you got to put them on the list. And people are picked in delta because he runs Microsoft. I'm like, no, dude, it's Tim Cook. It's Tim Cook. It's to cook. He's also 1000%. He has never used numbers in his life. Tim Brooks looks at numbers and he's like, get this out of my face. How dare you? He opens excel and immediately just like pushes his mouse away and he's like, I will not be needing this. He's got like the external number had on his hands are going to straight sideways macro mode. Do you think Tim Cook watches the excel world championships? Yes. 100%. Yeah. Man, you know, when I was a coach, I asked in this big thinky question about whether the phone is partially to blame for social media. And I was like, no, we're fine. I should have been like, do you watch the excel world? Who do you think is going to win this year, Tim? It's like you, anybody. I know Johnny's here, but you and me eye to eye. He's super extreme in that shit. And then the next time I see him 100% asking if you watch this. I don't care where my career goes after that. I just need to know the answer. But you meant people who train with spreadsheets, right? Yeah. Like the people who play video games with spreadsheets. I know several of them. I am sometimes one of them myself. I go back and forth. It's just too, I have a whole notion page with training info on there. It's sad. I'm embarrassed for myself right now, admitting it. But then the Garmin can send you CSV data, right? And the Apple watch is just not built to do that. So when I do my testing and I do comparisons, I'm old school and I go spreadsheet, but I know there are smarter ways to do that and to export all your fitness data. So I'm not the person to ask for that just because I like to be really, really hands on with the data when I'm comparing and I'm anal retentive about the columns and how they look a God this is so embarrassing. But yeah, welcome, this is fun. This is home. This is where we are your people. Yeah, so I just have a spreadsheet at home, and it is psychotic looking, just percent of change, accuracy. And I realized a long time ago that no one wants to read that in the review. But for us assured, I'm doing it, and I've been doing it for years. I mean, people want to read that. There's an audience. You don't want to read, okay, so on four different runs, it was off by negative 0.2%. As these get more accurate, it gets less relevant. That's the thing. Like 6 years ago when I was doing it and I was like the LG watch sport was super accurate and the LG watch style was off by zero point 2% and it awful and it was color coded and everything is so sad. But yeah, accuracy is really interesting because accuracy and wearables is less relevant than consistency. It's just a thing that I came to after a long time. If you're consistently inaccurate by the same margin, you can still track your progress. And a progress is the thing that matters most presumably. So it just seems like Garmin has this advantage, right? Because right now can do more. It's got more metrics for fitness. It has offline maps. It's built to be worn for the task, right? It's like task specific in a way that wearing a garment is a general purpose smartwatch doesn't really make any sense. Apple's bridging the gap. Today have to do more on the general purpose smartwatch side or is it when you push the button and turn on the I'm hiking mode or the I'm diving the ocean mode. It needs to do more there to compete with the specialized devices. It needs to think a little bit harder about design and some in some ways. So I love the action button, but the action button was built by a general use company trying to pull in specialized people, but the more I think about the action button, they left out a huge thing with the action button here too, is that a lot of athletes use physical controls to swipe through screens. And you would think that that would be the case with the action button, but it's not. It's all pause. So it's great. They thought about really hard about how to make a more intuitive way to pause with physical controls, but they forgot a more intuitive way to use buttons to scroll through menus. Now that's something that everyone who uses a garment is super used to, it's something they love it, insures with no doubt that if you wear gloves, if your fingers are sweaty, if you're in the elements that you can scroll to the menu that you need. So with Apple, they added the workout views, which freaking great. I love the new workout views. But you're still having to scroll with the digital crown in order to view them mid exercise. And that's just, I end up having to take a short walk break sometimes to scroll through it. And the digital crown is bigger. It has grooves. It's more tactile. That's great, but it's not the same thing as being able to press a button and scroll through your menus. And I think that's a bit of a whiff. Would you say the digital crown is an input device on par with the mouse? And multi touch, and then multi touch display. Yeah. Yeah. It's just a phone. Don't get me wrong. I don't know. You would? You say it's as big a deal as the mouse? Revolutionary. No, I misunderstood what you were saying. I'm just saying when Apple introduced digital account. They were like, the mouse. And now the digital crown. No, I totally misunderstood. Is the action button there? The action button is not there yet. I actually think the action button should be on every single Apple watch, it shouldn't just be on the ultra. But it's like David said it's, I want to say 70% of the way there.

"We try and race as long as I can and do whatever I can, of course, but the day you want to have fun with the people that mean something to you and you want to have them around at the weekends and join it with you as well. And you know going out for dinners and having a good time of an art time too. And you brought in and over the years you've had a lot of good partners that have been able to gain something from you and you've been able to keep racing because of them. Yeah, absolutely. And as we know, we don't go racing without the support crew, you know, so guys like clean from trady pad and Josh from Cosmo grains and the list goes on, you know it's really good. And having them come to the racetrack, you know, hanging out which kind of early on in the year was a little bit difficult because it was kind of just cruel and teams go to the track. So that was a little bit disappointing, probably from there. And as well, because I always want to be here. Quite a few of them. This weekend, but yeah, without the support group, I stayed home and I watched it all on TV so it certainly don't turn any ties around without them, so yeah, very, very, very thankful. Well, the twos on the trophy this year, the goal I imagine for 2022 is to move that one number up. Yeah, absolutely. That's definitely the goal. Kind of feel with our last two rounds being at this and at city motor sport park, I think our paces is there that if all the ducks line up and we tick all the boxes then we should be able to have a shake, but obviously motor sport anything can happen. This year was kind of about learning, you know, as much as we possibly could, you know, we didn't come in thinking we were going to win the championship or even fought for top three in the championship to be fair, but just keep chipping away, try and win some races, get some fast slaps and poles, whatever the one race we've got a couple of poles, but I feel like this weekend we've probably had a little bit more in the car for whatever reason the first few hundred meters of these races are bringing me on stock and by the time I get to where I should have been at the start, nice run away, you'll Boggs run away at eastern creek and then it's everyone's too tight. You can't go giving away that sort of thing. So I have to get a little bit more aggressive and give myself a bit of a tune up and we can look in the mirror and wake up to myself and try and make sure those starts are you know as good as I can be like everybody else and hit the ground running and we'll see where we end up. Well, Tim have a great Christmas and looking forward to seeing how your team makes it out on the greater hint. Yeah, yeah, thanks very much. Yeah, fingers crossed. We're back in the 38 trading pad wall racing rocket and see how we go. Great to catch up with Tim brook there. And you can see once again, how much he's developed as a racing driver in that time. Now, to Shane weng is Bergen a very well credentialed and established driver. He's the supercar champion. And it was announced this week that he'll also be racing in the Australian rally championship with his sponsor Red Bull. It's awesome to be obviously part of the Red Bull family, but then to drive with them and supercars, but now rally as well..

"This week on inside motor sport, we speak with Tim Brooks about his second place finish in the 2021 trans am series. I hope you'll stay with us. While speaking to Tim Brooks of bathurst, was a great opportunity to catch up with him again. Last time we spoke to him on the inside motor sport was on our 9th of January show and you can hear that at sport radio dot com dot IU. At that time, he had just won the Toyota 86 championship. Now, two years on, and he is second place in the Australian TransAm series. I spoke to him in his wall racing transporter after the trophy presentation. While Tim Brock has been a little while since we spoke to you on inside motor sport head last time you were talking about the plants to get out of 86s. It seems to have been a very successful move to trans ams in the first step. Second in the championship in 2021. Yeah, look, it's turned out pretty good to be honest. It's probably taking a little bit longer. We started in 86s for a little longer than I guess we were originally expecting. But yeah, thoroughly enjoyed this year trans am. It was opportunity there at the start of the year. We've David wobble racing and yeah, we thought why not? Let's have it, let's have a go now huge man about the category or the cars or anything and yeah, it's been a hell of a learning curve this year. That's for sure, but a good one at that. Bit wild and woolly compared to the 86. Yeah, I guess so. Yeah, I mean, the cars have plenty of attitude, which is what I love about them at the moment, you know, they've got heaps of power. They've got a good tie when they're new, but they certainly start to move around and sounds like everybody that's viewing from the outside seems to love that about the category, you know? They've always moved around on the tower and almost to a certain point that maybe had too much pay out for the tire and yeah, we're loving that as well. So it's certainly becomes a bit of a battle trying to have some tires left for the last race and not burn them up too early in the weekend. And yeah, it's been really good. It's been really, really good. 2020, 21 COVID affected. How has that changed your plans? Does it actually meant you haven't gone racing quite as much so you may be saved a bit of money to be able to stock up for the years ahead. We should be sized a little bit of money to stock up, but yeah, unfortunately not. This year's kind of turned out, I suppose how we had originally planed with we got our 6 rounds in, which was fantastic and I guess a testament to the category for pressing on and I guess the AI nasty opportunity. You know, I have ten categories here at baths at the biggest rice event of the year. He's pretty cool and it's all been run stainless from our end. But yeah, look, the plane will be to go again and stick with trains aim, same team, same car, for next season. We've learned a lot and I feel like that's sort of shiny now pace. Over the season and I feel like we're starting to really get out. Our heads are in, there's always plenty more to learn, so definitely not going to stop here..

"One one liter. Plastic bottle provides enough raw material for ten small lego bricks. That seems like you need a lot of bottles to make game. There are a of bottles remember which turns not did that one that we would go to the moon and back in around the earth. Seventeen thousand times not remember the rights to tackle sick. We talked about that. No but we did talk about how many water bottles company ocean. Yes we did so vice. President of environmental responsibility at lego. Tim brooks says this says. The biggest challenge on our sustainability journey is rethinking and innovating new materials that are as durable strong and high quality as our existing bricks and fit with lego elements made over the last sixty years. There is a patent pending. And you know that. I'm only a bill song. I'm just a bill. Only bill and i'm trying to get on capitol hill. Sorta atalaya hope and pray. That i will but today. I'm still just a bill. Yes that's on. Fromm schoolhouse rock right. Well kind of like that. It's this long journey of becoming a law. This prototype has a long journey before you will actually see it in stores. They've been doing testing and have to do a whole bunch more things and burke says even though it will be a while before they will be able to play with bricks made from recycled plastic. We want to let kids know that we are working on it and bringing them along on the journey with us. Experimentation and failing is an important part of learning and innovation justice. Kids build and build and rebuild with lego bricks at home. We are doing the same thing in our lab. They have committed to removing single use.

"So we've finished our trilogy on. The many lives of harry has present and We're going to keep expanding outward. I know we call this series the vanishing of harry pace but he was not the only one to be vanished there are others like him who were similarly vanished sometimes by their own design. Now one of the things that has been really frustrating for us in reporting the series haunting even. Is that our central guy. We don't have harry's voice no we don't have it. Harry got all of these other voices on records like ethel waters. Trixie smith take ethel as an example. When you hear her voice. I come along in that era. I was working in nightclubs. Like when you hear her speak. It makes all the difference. You know her. I could sing dance talking this. Let's make you laugh. No make you cry but harry's kind of lost to us so one of the things. We did early on his. We called every archive that we could find every record collector asking. What do you got. What do you got we were. We were trying to find something and along the way we. That's when we met a dude that we did not expect to me a contemporary of harry and his story. Yeah it of became one of the most inspiring musical tales. That i've ever heard it actually began With misunderstanding on our part. We're actually hunting for harry. The it has a picture of the label on the back. it has. Who's in it and the logo for black swan. I guess him. Can you say your name and your title so we have it. My name is tim brooks. I'm a media. Historian lead found a way to ten because he's one of the few people who have records from the black swan label. In fact people told us you gotta talk to this guy because he had just released a compilation called black swan. Go get a copy. We would love that. And these are all recordings from the black swan label. Look the early years. no no. Actually this is called black swans with an s. sonnet. It ten out. The compilation was not what we thought. It includes for the first time. The roland hayes the historic earl and hayes recordings that were made in nineteen seventeen eighteen. Tim started telling us about this guy. Name role in hayes and these very old recordings that he'd hunted down with great difficulty and we were like cool. It's not what we're looking for. Don't really want to go into this. Because this guy never recorded for the black swan label but before we could redirect. I've got some of the actual.

"If you like me. You see under the bamboo tree and it's about a jungle person from multiple boo and it's in this dialect and jesus christ. The song is very catching. Bob cole had an issue with the coon song. All of the extremes hit a lot of trouble with that and so all of a sudden one day at leaves nineteen ten or nineteen eleven. He made a decision. I don't know if he was drunk or what. He walked into a lake and drowns. While here is the most successful black writer of his time per. i don't think it's an accidental drowning. So the idea that harry would want to move on from sheet music. This was the contacts. Write the white. Companies were releasing these minstrel songs. That's all they were doing. They were putting out circular platters of white supremacy in destroying lives in the process. And harry wanted to change that. And if handy didn't want to be involved with that their partnership was over. Harry pays obviously all the need he he i can't i mean this is performer ran giddings. Why are why are we neglecting all of this talent. You know i mean. That's the kind of insert rage to be honest. Like i mean. I can't speak for the man because i you know obviously dead but i i can only imagine that it would be rage. Inducing to put it mildly So i can only imagine that all got funneled into know. Let's do this ourselves. He understood that who banks records under. What conditions and to what effects really matters he understands. Those are political issues to him. This is not going to be a regular business now now. Hey stephanie saw as a social movement as much as purely commercial pace being a businessman he was went out and got funding for it. You got a board of directors with the boys and others on the board media. Historian tim brooks. How old is he. A harry would have been thirty six at the time the first question he had to consider what to call it. Well he wanted to call it something that spoke of black pride. Do you know who named it. I do for for several months at the end of one thousand nine hundred thousand eight. Harry was writing letters to w baidu boys the idea of calling the label. Black swan actually came from voice. He told harry before you were born. There used to be the singer. She's soprano so black swan. The name itself you know is named after an opera singer elizabeth taylor greenfield and now was her moniker. She was known as the black swan. The first concerts were eight hundred fifty one eight hundred fifty two debut in new york city curator. Doin dylan reese. She was brought out and staged and there was laughter. Audiences jarred and laughter. They couldn't make sense out of what they were hearing added that she had a magnificent voice looking back at this magical moment even in slavery days when a black woman could command as kind of attention so that that was very much in the air so in may of nineteen twenty one. Almost exactly one hundred years ago. Harry pace launches black swan. When he launches the company it is held in the black breasts. Chicago defender may seventh nineteen twenty one news of the completion of the first list of black swan records. Which are now ready for. Delivery will be received with great interest and enthusiasm by our people all over the united states when the announcement was made that company had been formed to manufacture phonograph records by artists. A great uproar was caused among white phonograph records companies who resent the idea of having a race company enter. What they felt was an exclusive field. They could see what a huge deal. It was one of their first press here from may nineteen twenty one. Ask your dealer for black swan records. The only phonograph company owned and controlled by colored people using exclusively negro voices and music said the only records using exclusively negro voices and musicians. And yes that was. That was a A slogan and if you remember full fobel fashion where uber closed for us by us. This was the one thousand nine hundred twenty s version. Just keeping all stockholders are colored. All artists are colored. All employees are colored. And what did they release. What was their first. Record bellevue's okay the fleet. It's it's more opera than i expected. Well it's this is classic talented ten stuff uplift the race by trying to encourage people to listen to better music. Quality music flex material is boring and to be honest. Because it's just the toity white blake classical crap. But i get why recorded because the idea is to show that black people could do that too so at incomes out and harry releases a couple other classical records. How did these do did anyone by them. I mean they still only six hundred seventy four dollars and sixty four cents records well sort of level. They're not going to survive too long now. He has to figure out. What is he going to. This is one of the many moments we wish we could get in harry his head but we can't. There are no journal entries. There's no letters to go to but we can't say that probably hit him pretty hard like we know he had a stubborn will but we also know that when he met failure at other times in his life. It really rocked. Him does a short account from a writer named marriage. Stewart apparently new pace personally and he describes a moment after atlanta university of win harry was working on beale street trying to start a magazine with wbz boys it failed and as he describes it. Harry looked out the window. In quote there was the mississippi river swift. And deep at the foot of beale street and according to this writer pace very seriously considered throwing himself in committing suicide. And maybe that's how he.

"Was the announcement that lego has developed a way to make. Its iconic toy bricks out recycled plastic. Say goodbye to being lane by world and drunk you through you out and hello to life as a prototype rick. At our development lab in denmark old plastic bottles are ground into flakes cleaned and melted down into material that can be moulded a one liter. Plastic bottle yields enough raw material for about ten bricks. Tim brooks is legos. Vice president of environmental responsibility speaking here to reuters. We understand the concern. The children and adults have pasta out there in the world and seventy classic in landfill on the environment and we believe that recycled material is one of the best ways to address that and we are talking a lot of plastic here. Lego makes more than one hundred billion plastic bricks per year. The firm emits the same amount of carbon as more than a quarter million cars driving around for a year and about a third of that comes from making materials mostly from virgin or unrivaled. Plastic made from crude oil. The recycled prototype is an effort to make the company's products more sustainable. But these recycled bricks aren't ready for sale just yet first of all. They're all an opaque grayish white color. Another issue is what. Lego calls their clutch or how easily they can be put together and pulled apart. Tim brooks explained while demonstrating with lego pieces. What we're still working on the fact that we want to be able to of course colored so coloring and then some of the clutch is what we still want to work on. Its sometimes it can be a bit a bit loose. The new bricks are expected to go on sale within two years. Anti plastics campaigner. Camilla's zehr at friends of the earth told the guardian. She thought the initiative was promising. But that recycling shouldn't be seen as the default solution to the world's plastic problem. She hopes manufacturers consider making their products more durable so they can be passed down from generation to generation in other words the reduce reuse part of the mantra reduce reuse recycle.
