"But in terms of the discussion we're having now, what is the relevance to discussing mitigation? So we've taken all of the easy fossil fuels. We've built beautiful homes. We've built our society. But in order to bring everybody to this level, that which is the goal, right? I think the goal is to have everybody be as comfortable as we are. We live in a place of privilege. And in order to do that, we're going to need two or three orders of magnitude more energy. And this is not something fossil fuels can accommodate. This is something that only, you know, building out nuclear, building out hydro, where it's possible, building out geo, where it's possible, building out O tech, where it's possible, and then using fossil fuels to fill in the rest of the gap so that we reduce our reliance on it, because it comes back down to energy security, right? If you're dependent on fossil fuel production in Russia, right? If you were the prime minister of Germany and you shut down all the nuclear plants and then went to work for gas prom and then built those pipelines who are now holding Russia by or holding Germany by the neck and causing all the energy problems and across all of Europe, right? That was a fossil. That was the guy who shut down the nuclear was not a renewable guy. That wasn't a fossil fuels problem. That was a corruption, but he went to go work for gas prompt. You know what I'm saying? The issue there. Yeah, but the issue there is incentives and greed and corruption and policy. There was Fiat. Maximalism that you can't embed on the Bitcoin block to see economics of violence in the petrol dollar and the like. But to understand where we're going with this, is that I think the point you're trying to make is we need more abundant energy. How many more abundant energy for people in developing countries who have been generally excluded or they've had their resources stolen stolen through we've covered this without its custody recently talking about the IMF and the World Bank, how they've perpetuated this. So at this point, what we're talking about is increasing the amount of energy available to people, but you're saying we shouldn't be doing this just through fossil fuels, but we can't. We can't do it. Because there isn't enough, or it would lead to an even faster rapid increase in the temperatures. It's both. One, the only fossil fuel we have enough of to even start to scratch at that energy disparity is methane. And the problem with methane is the infrastructure costs. You know, it's not easy, it's not as easy as transporting a barrel of oil, right? Barrel oil easy to pick up. That's why they're able to the Nigerian. What is the golden triangle of Nigerian oil smuggling? They shovel it to over to Togo and then gone up because it's easy to transport, right? But methane. Natural gas requires LNG ports, we're not building those in third world. That's huge infrastructure expense. You know, China tried and they fucked around and about to find out, you can't build pipelines through Boko Haram territory, LNG pipelines through Boko Haram territory, right? They'll be held for ransom. Yeah. They'll be exactly like where they'll be blown up like just like we're seeing now in the developed world. Imagine how bad it would be in sub Saharan Africa. But we also see incidents of people trying to.

"Comes in handy when a person is bundled with layer upon layer over their face, and north to try to keep to try to keep the violent cold air from torturing their tongues and lungs. Togo couldn't have heard him anyway, always a dozen or more feet ahead, the only sounds the lead dog usually heard were the wind and the push of paws on snow and ice. Now supple and knew that if Togo did something, anything. He did it for a reason. Once, while leading a pack over a frozen Lake, the dog disobeyed orders, and didn't make a turn when seppala signaled for one. Instead, the dog did a near backflip to stop the team and sled in its tracks. Seppala was confused and initially thought that there was something wrong with Togo, the dog had seen a crack in the ice, but seppala had not. If he would have traveled a few more feet, the whole team would have been turned into popsicles. Another time they were not quite as lucky. An ice floe broke off beneath them, and they started to drift away from shore. So supple a tighter rope to Togo, tossed him to the other side, which was secure and offered a path to the safety of shore, and the dog pulled and pulled, moving sepla and the other dogs closer to shore on their floating boat of ice until the rope broke. Then what did he do? Togo grab the end of the rope in his mouth, fell to the ground, writhed and turned and barrel rolled on the icy shore until the rope was twisted around his torso. At which point he stood up and pulled his teammates, the rest of the way to safety. Seppala was amazed. So you can see why when it came time to save lives, there was no other choice. At 12, Togo was pretty old for a work dog. But he was unstoppable. So 12 year old Togo was at the front of the pack, leading the team that would hopefully pull seppala and the serum and save nome. In order to get to the relay handoff point, Leonard seppala, Togo and the team had already ridden a 170 miles into the wilderness. But they were still eager to bolt. They made a beeline for gnome as soon as the serum was turned over to them. At times, the wind would bring the temperature to 65° below zero. And every hour mattered. They slept very little, staying in motion as long as possible. Not just because of the serum, but also because it was the only way to stay alive. They'd get too cold if they stopped moving for long. When they finally made it to a body of water known as the Norton sound, seppala had to decide whether to risk taking the pack over the frozen ice or travel safely around. To go around with any full day to the journey. Now memories of Togo's rope heroic certainly came to mind, but if things went badly again, there was no guarantee that they could make it out safely a second time. Still, seppala had all the trust in the world in Togo. He knew that the 12 year old superdog would know what was best and turned them around if it was safer. So they tried to cross the wide frozen water, and amazingly, or not amazingly, if you know Togo, they made it safe and sound, with the serum. When they handed it off to a man named Charlie Olson, Togo and team had traveled nearly 100 miles in under 24 hours. Charlie was the penultimate or next to last writer. 40 or so miles later, he and his team handed it off to another man named Gunnar kassen. Gunner was a friend of Lynyrd Zeppelin, and at the front of his team was a dog named balto. Seppala had trained balto as well, but he was not a fan of the dog, and his eyes balto didn't have what it took to be a good lead dog. Gunner felt differently, and was right. Because on the trail, he was amazed at balto's focus and leadership for their leg. In actuality, they were supposed to hand off to one final team. But upon arrival, they found the expected team asleep. Exhausted, cold and nearly collapsed, Gunnar decided to mosh the last 25 miles. It would be quicker than hitching up a new team, and every minute counted. And balto became the hero, pulling the sled into nome with the still intact serum at 5 30 a.m.. 5 days after it got off the train. 127 and one half hours to be exact. This was an incredible amount of time. Several days faster than anyone had ever traveled the stretch before. As soon as they ground to a halt, gunner got off the sled, staggered to balto, complimented the dog's effort, rubbed his furry little head, and then collapsed in the middle of the street. You would, too, after an entire night of sledding through sub zero temperatures. The dogs were in better shape than the man. The job was done, and doctor Welch got his hands on the horse blood serum immediately. It took a bit of thawing, but amazingly, not a single vial was broken. Every musher took great care of the precious cargo, so the dock was able to quickly treat his diphtheria stricken patients. It's hard to know how many lives were saved by the dog sled brigade, but it was many. Thanks to the serum, the community made it to spring without another outbreak. And by then, a ship could get through the ice and deliver more to stamp it out for good. The dogs had saved gnome Alaska. Back in continental America, citizens had followed the story with bated breath in the daily news. And we all know how much we like a hero. So when they were looking for the hero of this story, the honor fell on balto's shoulders. It makes sense, right? He was the one who dramatically delivered the serum before sunrise on a cold morning hours ahead of schedule. But he wasn't the only pup. He was given parades, metals, even a bone shaped key to the city of Los Angeles. Seppala, however, got a little prickly because he knew Togo was the most impressive dog in the race. But the dogs themselves didn't seem to mind either way. Maybe we could learn a thing or two from these pups. Maybe we could learn a lot,

"Welcome to Sanya podcast. Because his black history month, I'm gonna speak about African women, normally I speak on all women, Latino women, Chinese women. I mean, Asian women, all women, I normally talk about all women, but this time I'm going to talk about African women and an article according to The New York Times because a lot of times the thoughts about how African women, you know, awesome missive and the man isn't the known breadwinner or misconception. So let's get into it. So the women in loom tongo is called the women liberation movement. It's all had in this West African country. Tongo, women have long ceased to worry about equal opportunities in business for a simple reason. As market women, many of their own operate the most important businesses, the wholesaling retelling of full clothing, other consumer products. Holding a near monopoly in this trade, the Togolese market women had gained wealth independent and reputation for being able to wheelers and dealers in the counterparties in Ghana or Nigeria, most of the new buildings hero and more than half of the higher price cars are said to be owned by these women. As for male chauvinism, there appears to be no problem. The husband of the woman and other men ballister their egos with jobs and governments of the profession, which brings them much prestigious but modest salaries. For the most part, the men seem proud of their was. Business assessed and fellow, sophisticated about their own minor roles as bread's winners, being a good companion and a good father, a family had become the important attributes in a toggle, toggles husband, no one knows exactly how much business is done by toggle marketing and women, according to two of the leading women traders, Laura Doe Bruce, and giselle, John Doe, the total amount of retail businesses done by market women. It's so big, it is difficult to difficult to give an estimate. Miss Bruce is president of the market women closed sellers in elite trade group of 500 members while miss Joan Dole is secretary general of the opium. Of her organization, facts and figures given by the group officials in an interview show that the market women trade has become big business. Estimate of the retail trade handled by them usually run around 55%, but miss Bruce is assert that this figure was outdated in the total volume now. The total volume now is more than 75%. And loom alone, she said there were more than 5000 market women. Many of these have branched and other parts of Tom going also supply other market women throughout the country and enable hooding, countries. There is not a village or town that does not have market women who jointly provided a distribution system for a while range of goods. The closed sellers and dealers in the textile from which African women make their broccoli pattern dresses and other clothing do the biggest volume of business miss Bruce tall and with the confident of a self made career woman comment that it was not on two leading women traders, miss gazelle, Joel Dahl, less secretary general and miss Laura do Bruce president market women close sellers at the loom center. Market continue from page 70. 71% for one walker room to have a yearly turnover of equivalent of $540,000. Some she said has yearly growth sales of a much of 9, $909,000, even at a minimum profit of 1% on such sales market. Women wouldn't net 5000 $400 to 9090 but. $9090 hunt that actual profit level undoubtedly is much higher. It only ambassador has a net annual income of about 400,000. Most of the market women keep their account in their heads that keeps the tax collectors guessing. The institutional women traders miss Joan doll know ancient one as an old ass tongo, it probably began a division of labor that made market trading women work. Women cultivated the family vegetable plot raised chickens and made clothes, traditionally they were entitled to keep for themselves whatever they gained from selling any surplus at markets. And former times this was not a great deal, but with developments. And a growing money economy women traders have been able to turn their talents to greater profit. It is now too late for the men to change the customer some of that they could, the market women had been greatly aid by toggle, traditional open door trade policies, this was maintained after talk of gain independent from France in 1960 toggle is the only form of French African country that has not given trade professions to Friends so that imports from all countries came in on an equal footing. As a result, the tango markets highly competitive. In addition to Dutch and Japanese print clothes, glassware from condiments, China, and various household articles from other lands. Scott wished whisky, American cigarettes and French perfumes can be brought here at blogging prices. Along with his plan to market women, the flow of goods also fitted Bruce contraband trade with Ghana and Nigeria learning the market women trade, miss Joe Doe said begins at an early age usually while a girl is still attending school. She herself learned from her grandmother and mother who was traders, but there's also. A trading bargain. Miss Joel presently is trained in 6 girls and arrangement itself is a trading bargain. The girl you see no paper do housework and work in shops in the market and change for their kids in the experience that will enable them to start their own businesses one day. And the big central market here entirely a woman where hundreds of market women India apprentice may be seen on main market days as playing and selling their wears from vegetable fish spice to clothes and manufacture goods. And describing the skills that make us successful market woman was Bruce gave a list that probably will be fully endorsed by the sales in secret club of New York. The first requirement she said is to know how to count money and to learn the value of money. The nexus household draw the attention of the public and how to welcome customers. It is necessary also to how to price and sell goods and to have nerve and be willing to take risks. Knowing how to buy is important, but the source of goods are the same for all so that knowing how to sell is more important. Miss Bruce and miss John dulce they have heard about the women liberation movement in America but for them it seems they strain phenomenal ask for the success and businesses truly made a woman independent of her husband. Miss Bruce chuckle and reply, no. So you see that the miss assumption that most people had that and Africa, well, Africa and many other countries that men are the breadwinners, that's not true. You see, there are women in Africa who actually are bred winners in the men appreciated. They approve it. And the menacing government and politics, but they approve, you know, they're happy that their wives are out there making money. You know, because nowadays in America, some men are inferior to women if they make more than them, you know, and I know y'all don't hurt a lot of stories about that. So we'll get into that another time. But.

"You are under palm trees and observing the fishermen and their typical boats, children playing around and there was a very nice experience. Yeah, I think the most beautiful things you can see over there. Excellent. One thing that makes you laugh and say only in toko. There was definitely two markets where they told me about a special religion and magic with my nice souvenir. I think there are more voodoo markets throughout these countries because they are at their official religion and their need there, I would say pharmacies to buy their ceremonial animal parts, but the one in lumet is particularly huge in comparison to the others. And there was a very exotic and if you asked it like this funny place for me to experience. Excellent. And if you had to summarize Togo in just three words, what three words would you use? Exotic. M. America, I would say because the market sums up voodo market as well as the huge bustling claw machine where you meet these nice people, the friendly friendly people over there and the huge variety of goods offered on such a market which gives you a nice insight into culture and everyday life of the people our guest again has been Philip muds from journey dot com and Philip if we want to send people to your best post about Togo, where are we going to send them? I would send you to the summarized post about my backpacking journey in the western African region, which was from Ivory Coast via Ghana and Togo up to Benin.

"So I paid two seats and made us start at once. And of course, I was buying the comfort of having my own seat in this text and not to share it next to the driver with another person. Got it. I don't remember the exact price of it, but but it fit into a backpacker budget, even buying two seats. It was. Using the public transport over there is very, very cheap. So and you had one other spot on your itinerary as I recall. Yes, exactly. So heading east in the east direction out of Lomé along the coast towards Benin and the next country would be Nigeria. There is the coastal town akbara and from there you have rural boat transfer. I would say some kind of old canoes. They use mostly for travelers to cross a Lake Togo to this Togo village place, which is today still a small city. That was the place where I felt the most touristy. I would say, because it's not really for locals using this canoe style boats, so that was I think more for tourists and this spot is quite famous among tourists visiting tobal will. Yeah, but I did this crossing by wooden canoe to the other side of the Lake. They have official tour guides, waiting there, again, something for tourists. So there was not just exploring the streets on my own, but they advised me to do some official tour within the city and because I had no idea no information. I just paid the local guide or the price they recommended as a tip because it was very helpful to have someone guiding you around and showing all the secret spots..

"Yeah, yeah, yeah, definitely, but you have to be careful with sometimes they come to you and ask for money because you're taking pictures without permission. If you do so, I went there and asked whether I'm allowed to take some pictures. There were a lot of children playing around so romantic, African scenes when you were thinking of the holiday over there. So if you're not being some aggressive and high nose white tourist, it can be a very relaxing atmosphere and you're not disturbing the people. I was just sitting there and enjoying this every scene around me with the children, the Fisher boats the coast to see. That was beautiful. So coastline highly recommended. I remember one time I was in an African market and I walked through a section that was a craft section and I walked through very quickly and it felt uncomfortable because everybody wanted me to stop and look at their wares and such and it was felt like it was pushy and then I had more time because I was with a group and their group was slow and so I walked through again the same section, but I walked through slowly taking the time to look at people's wares and not and wave or chatter, depending on how much language we have in common. And it was entirely different experience. It wasn't like it was that pushy is just my rhythm was wrong. I was not in tune with the rhythm of the local place. And when I was just taking time to go and take a look at things, they weren't really pushy, wasn't them. I wasn't in tune with Africa. Yeah. In many places, I experienced that you name it quite correctly like being in rhythm with this place. And some of the parts I traveled through in this western African region, you have to have a lot of patience, for example. Filling up buses. There is no tight basket you will, for example, if you're using buses or taxes, they wait until the car is full, and then they start. They have to be patient and wait for more people to come in, for example. But if you are not in a rush, beautiful places to experience. Another recommendation I want to give on lo mein is there is another big hotel or I think one of the most expensive hotels in the city is the hotel deux fei fei. So the 2nd of February hotel and from the rooftop bar, we have a beautiful view over the whole city. We can just go in there even if you're not a guest and having a drink and enjoy the views on the city. So that's also a very nice place. So you see the list of things to do or the beautiful or exciting things in Loma is quite short. So this is for me. A beautiful place to go where you don't have to stress over a long list of activities and attractions you have to tick off. Well, then you headed north end of the country. Yeah. Then I headed north to parliament, as I mentioned, it's the opposite of the big capital city. So smaller city and everything is green. You have a lot of mountains. There are a lot of hiking trails, some quite high mountains. I think even the highest in Togo, where you have nice views to the neighboring countries, because as we mentioned, the country is not very broad. You can have beautiful views into Ghana into lack Togo or tobo Lake on the other side. They have a lot of waterfalls in this area..

"So that was I think in all the countries I traveled to through and for all the souvenirs I bought so far that was the most exotic one, definitely. So what on this voodoo market in in Togo within Togo and also in the neighbor country Benin, you have a lot of voodoo temples, a lot of cultural places we can experience this for us very exotic religion and traditions. We were saying there was no fruit in the market and no apples was the one you mentioned, particularly and I'm thinking, well, because in Togo the saying is probably a monkey school a day keeps the doctor away. Definitely, yeah. A little different tradition. Yeah, kind of. So if you want to have the apples and the fruits had to go mushy and then yeah, you will find all this regular stuff there as well. Going from one place to the other in Togo the regular vehicle will choose or you will find moto taxis. So very often you just jump on the back of some motorcycle, which drives you through the city. Of course, there are taxis, but the regular way to travel are these motorcycles, moto taxis. Especially as a solo traveler. Yeah, as a solo traveler, it's the weight of travel. You can choose. Of course, it feels a little bit dangerous going on the back of African motorcycle through the tide traffic. But of course it's way faster than waiting somewhere in a traffic jam. But if you travel along the big roads on the coast, taxis are also quite common, but they get lots more people into a normal car than we are used to it. Sure. Normally I think the normal passenger number in a West African taxi may be 6 people in a normal small car. So you are at least with two people on the seat next to the driver..

"Amateur traveler. These are for me the most attractive sites, but one site in the city center stands out a bit, which is the fetish market, which is the biggest or at least one of the biggest voodoo markets worldwide. It sounds a bit strange and it does. Might surprise when I did some research before I traveled to West Africa because of course we all connect voodoo with this that movie or a thriller movie, dark religion, puppets, sticking some needles into some puppets. When we hear voodoo, but in this region and in particular in Togo and Benin, voodoo is the official religion. It's not a bad religion. It has this dark part as well. But it's mostly a positive religion. It's based a lot of nature and animals. So it's officially their religion along to other religions and Christianity. And they have a huge huge huge market in domain with all voodoo artifacts. When you go there, it's also a very strange view because you see a lot of animal parts. You see scouts of all animals. You can imagine you see bones. You see dried whole animals. So there were some monkeys that monkeys dried and with all the fur and peas and everything sitting there. You had the skin of a snake you had tea of animals you had insects, whatever. So a lot of selling stalls having this animal parts everywhere and this is because it's kind of a, I would call it a pharmacy for the people there because the voodoo priest recommends some animal parts to buy because of their special ceremony. So whatever your disease or problem is, they have a special ceremony of voodoo ceremony, which is based on normally on animal parts, I would say..

"No tourist buses, no. I've had that experience where you're in the market and I was in a group. And one of the members of the group got separated, but he just walked through the market and people went. This was Tanzania and the white guys went that way. Exactly. So it's not something they want to, I don't know, blame you for something, but it's just that a word for you and you hear it everywhere. When you're walking on the street. So after a few days of West Africa before I was already used to it, that was all right. Right in the center of the karma shield as the lawmaker cathedral, which was built in German colonial times. So it was a very nice picture spot even for taking a real picture or at least for you having this picture in your mind, having this bustling African market with all its colors and people around and then you have this two tower cathedral in white and red, which is looking like it could be somewhere in the U.S. or in a normal German small city, which does not look very African. It's German built around, I think, 1902. It was finished and inaugurated to also the cathedral is nice to visit to spend there a few minutes and it feels a little strange having this western culture within this heart of Africa. More places to visit in the Cindy center are the Palais de compress, which is a museum today. There are some more western African museums in this area and also the monument of independence, which is also located in the city center. This is the monument for the independence of colonial France in 1960. This episode of amateur traveler is sponsored by air doctor.

"Personally, very exciting and a very nice place to travel to. Excellent. In terms of itinerary, what are you going to recommend for us? So I started crossing the border from Ghana along the coastline, so where you have the main big roads in West Africa, so they are along the coast, all the capitals, all the big cities are normally along the coast and as soon as you leave the coast, heading to the center of the countries, it's getting even less touristy, less populated. And so on. So I crossed the border from Ghana and write on the border. There's already a totally capital, which is lo me. And I stayed there for a few days visiting the most attractive points within the city where I want to tell you and the audience more about a little later. Then I headed to the center, which is there to very nice city called kapali Mei. It's located in beautiful mountain screen area, beautiful Paradise for doing some hiking and nature activity that I'll have a lot of beautiful waterfalls over there. And heading to Benin, which is east of Togo across on Lake Togo. There is a big Lake within the country, the toba Lake or Lake Togo. On the other shore of the Lake you can visit total will, which is very nice place to experience colonial history, especially for me as a German. It's pretty interesting place because toga was one of the colonial countries of Germany back in the days. We did not have much colonies, but Togo was one of them. And in Togo there is a lot of history to experience in terms of this colonial history and also some nice voodoo places where also want to talk about a little more later. Excellent. You mentioned the coastline before we get very far along. When we talk about the coastline of tugboat, we're talking about maybe 30, 40 miles. There's not a lot of coastline there. It's a tall thin country. Yeah, it is. You can travel quite fastly through Togo if you don't want to stay there. A lot of time. So I was expecting to do exactly that. But then yeah, stayed for more than one week in this beautiful country. Well, and let's talk about Lomé. What do you recommend we see or do in lume? In the beginning, I was, as I mentioned, not expecting much because if you will, things to do in low May or the typical online research you will do before visiting a country or a city, there is not much mentioned in terms of the big sites, the big highlights. So for me, it was more diving into the culture of the country. So the big places I would recommend is visiting the grand marshy translated to pick market. There are a lot of French names or a lot of sites having the French name, which is still today the official language of the country. So after First World War, when Germany lost the war, big parts of the country were handed over to France and they set up more French colonies in this area. So basically a whole western Africa is speaking French..

Today the amateur traveler takes a detour to a less traveled country as we talk about beaches and waterfalls and voodoo as we go to the country of Togo and West Africa. But maybe not maybe not till the day welcome to the amateur travel army host Chris Christensen, let's talk about Togo. I'd like to welcome the show Philip wooders who has come to talk to us about Togo, Phillips, website is journey dot com and there's a link to that in the show notes. In case you have trouble with the pronunciation, but it's like journalism and vacation melded together. If you go to Philip sight, you can read it in both German and in English. Philip, welcome to the show. Hi Chris, thanks for having me. And obviously the reason why you can read it in Germany is that Philip is from Germany and actually coming to us from there now. But you're come to talk about Togo what's your connection with Togo? I was traveling backpacking actually in Togo more or less exactly two years ago. So end of 2016 before the pandemic hit us all I was backpacking in this special region of the world. So I traveled from Ivory Coast through Ghana, Togo up to Benin, where I joined some NGO organization who built schools over there. And one of the most interesting destinations on the journey was Togo, which I wanted to tell you more today. Excellent. Well, I think you put it on a map for us a little bit with its neighbors there. So we're talking about western Africa. One of those thin little countries there and that part of the world..

The unique unique thing for fnca chapters is while they're common interest groups her or for whatever reason they're form they have a lot of say in how lesson ca operates because of the way restructured.

"Of journalism, stunning that they do that once in a while, you know what you know what's weird gym. It happened when Jeff Bastos was up in space for 11 minutes. So Bezos left and all of a sudden, one of the reporters at The Washington Post decided to do a random act to journalism like we can't get in trouble now, Bastos is on the, uh phallus shaped aircraft headed to another universe. We've got 11 minutes to do some actual journalism. So they wrote a story about the Pegasus program, this malware program that can be put on a phone. And on this list of potential. I emphasize potential people who were Infected with this malware spyware program. Are a lot of World leaders, folks from countries around the world. Back to my global destabilization.

And who has come to talk to us about the country of been in rachel. Welcome to the show. Happy to be here first of all. We're probably gonna need to put this on a map because some people are wildly googling right now in wikipedia where is the country have been in innocent a west africa the biggest countries nearby our nigeria and ghana. And why did you find yourself in banana in the first place. Let's start with that. I did a dna test years ago. I am african canadian. Meaning my ancestors. Came here as enslaved africans. We don't know where from and i thought. Dna tests would be a good way to find out where my origins were from. After i did the dna tests been in was one of the top countries along with togo. Nigeria the whole region. Really and then. I took a trip there for six months and been in was one of the five countries. I visited excellent. And why should someone go to in. What i loved about. Being in was that it was authentic in terms of it hasn't yet been too americanized to westernize is still wear the traditional clothes. Drink their traditional tease ethan traditional food and it really felt like you were transported back to a time. They've kept their culture almost intact. And that's why you would want to go to benin versus another country that might be more westernized. There's something authentic inorganic about banana. That is so heartwarming. Banana is a small country. As i recall. It's actually a smaller country in africa. But it's the same size approximately the same size of ohio. Which always surprises
A Proposal To Burn Ethereum Transaction Fees
"So a proposal to ben a theory of transaction fees. This is coming from an e. Ip which i will link in the show notes feliciano e ip stands by theory improvements proposal. So now i'll do is. I'm going to read just the abstract on the summary from this thing. And then i'll give you my comments on it. So i actually came across this on git hub. This thing. was originally created in april two thousand and nineteen and has been in development since then and this is all according to harvard and give hope they've logged all of their calls developing development team and if the regulating the less meeting they had on this particular thing was The thet december twenty twenty. So this roy up to date in fact the less meeting that they had at the summary notes for the goal from the december he says generally feeling is that there was enough robust analysis and research with this improvement to begin discussing the next steps in the process i e how to move forward introducing too old cord avs and the theory of maintenance exciting. So that's how close they says to going onto the maintenance right. I think perfected over the of the last year or something booked with talking yet. So they're improvement. Proposal fifteen fifty nine fee market for one point out so. This is an improvement for the existing chain while ago gates shoes on so the simple summary is this is a transaction pricing mechanism. They includes a fixed pad block network feet that is bend and dynamically expands or contracts block sizes to deal with transient congestion. So what does that mean the problem. We have right now. They've got a difficult forming problems with the existing model. The fed will quote is a mismatch between volatility of transaction fee levels and the social cost transactions. The basically say that you one minute. You can have a Network free that's two hundred times what it was a minute ago right depending on just massive spikes in demand for network resources and stuff like that which seemed ridiculous. It's completely unpredictable. At second problem. Is it ends up. With needless delays for uses so does no good as socially unproductive as they call it. Where was the slack in the system to meet block by block demand while that would be met by so the listrik book sized that goes up if the blocks full and goes down if the blocks unfaithful pretty sweet scandal like the big oin difficulty. Adjustment mechanism is for blocksize. Rather than mining difficulty kind of kind of climate also says the problem is the inefficiencies of first price auctions. So what that means. Is that The minute of its to use sophisticated algorithms to estimate what fee to charge the uses of the wallet. And even though they're you know that just doesn't work. Right you end up overpaying the fee or you think you can get confirmation fifteen seconds and it takes three minutes and then you have to submit the transaction again with a high of face. Just it's just a mess right. And then the third thing is they will they call the instability of blue with no block reward. And they say well think about in the long run blockchain bitcoin. They intend to switch to rewarding minus entirely on transaction fees. You know when the bitcoin blocker would reaches next to nothing and they said will there were no issues with this kind of thing instability and so on selfish mining attack vectors and does no good solution for this at present. So what they're proposing to do is twofold one is have. This elects the block size thing where grows books of fold and shrinks of block saw you know novel and then also introduced a different pricing mechanism for transaction fees which would be that would be to to transaction fee going forward one would be this fixed a transaction fee pueblo. Which again go up and down with the blocksize. So you pay that and that base based transaction fee pet blog which would be absolutely known that would get burned right so like i spent boom johnson. Then if you wanna make sure that said your transaction gets into the blog than you can include an additional minor. Bribe as they call on top of the base fee said the minor didn't get any of the because we know that gets burned but they would get the minor bribe and the block reward so they still get two sources of revenue. The blocker would that remains the same They get the minor bribe and then they base fee gets burned. Okay well you might think well as because she's gonna cause the same problem as we've got now no it's not because was different now. Is that the book. Size is going to expand and contract so even if you don't include a minor bribe your wallet will know what the current fixed block transaction fee is and it will know what the next one is as well. So that means that in your wallet when meta mascow. Whatever will you're using. It will be able to quote you very precise transaction fees and the predictability of how soon that will go through and get confirmed. He's also much more set in than is now so that's does really right. You want the detail on how this works. Technically they've even got technical specification and a bunch of solidity code solidity code of how this will work including houses going to be backwards compatible. And how do you order. Transactions and blahdy blahdy. Bob so does that well. If you want my comments on this area. I think this should have been the design of a theory from day. One in fact. When i stood at dairy month old. This was high worked. A thought will gas right. if it's fuel surely is being burned and destroyed and took me quite a while to find out that that wasn't the case to find out the miners. Who gained all these fees on the blogger would which i four was bombing. The second thing is that if this does get implemented nobody does. It will be a massive economic boom for the theory token as an a theory in token hold. I'd be well pleased with this. Especially this would have a big effect on theory and stop the flow ratio. Which of course is top of my mind right. Now since i'm studying under safety and moose and his new book fiat standard. I'm a fan of the standard at any way. But you know that's what sir. I'm studying day to day right now. So i'm always thinking slow. Soaked floor ratio so this proposal would mean that the stock of a theory and will be constantly being reduced to offset some of the inflation for the mining rewards at the minute. He's just constantly inflating with booker woods. there's no destruction. there's no system level destruction anyway might accidentally send some their into the wrong address or whatever but the system doesn't doesn't create any deflation and this would do so on that point while we're talking about you but if i go to f gas station dot info it does have a leaderboard of the biggest guest banners right so actually lofton's articles the the They put on. The side is cold gas burners but as we know until this is implemented this proposal they don't banning gas at all alley just fees going through the contract to the minus with the number one. Let's call him guest bene- right now on the network is the union contract and in the last thirty days the amount of transaction fees going through that contract is twelve point. Seven million dollars worth of ethereal. Oh near enough to day. Two thousand f has been spent on transaction vs pretty significant amount if this proposal was implemented that would mean that in the last days unique swap would be responsible for destroying the two thousand ethereal just brilliant bending they two thousand theorem just from the fees that uses paint to use union swamp great and then tether another twenty six thousand theory would be banned in the last days because of that. So if you wanna in theory times these they say two thousand if theory of the what would ban twenty six thousand. That ted would ban if you want in. Us dollar terms it means units will be bending fifteen million dollars of theorem everyday days and tether will be betting ten million everyday days. I think those would go though. Remember is the capacity of the network would increase with this elastic book size so every time a block is full the next book slightly bigger so absolutely balmy so when when when the network is congested well more transactions go through every book which means more theory and guest band so the busy of the network is the more fees get panda. The big of the fees is self fulfilling prophecy. So i'm of course i'm talking from an economic point of view. If you're in a theory of togo you'd you definitely want this to be implemented because it it. It makes a theory more scarce doesn't it because it's bending the stalk of a theory all the time
Africa and museums: shaping the future; rethinking the past
"I just on your lawson. The founding director of the paloma in togo and andrew santo. Who's just written a book with twenty eight interviews with museum leaders across the world. I also speak to. Dan hicks about his book. The british museum's about the bronzes and for our work the week christopher repeal of the national gallery in london talks about san mateo painting of copernicus. That's coming to the national for an exhibition next year before that a reminder that you can sign up for the art newspapers free daily newsletter for all the latest stories goes to the art newspaper dot com and the link is at the top right of the page. And while you're there you can also sign up for a range of other newsletters including the book club and the art market. I now a new book by the writer and cultural strategy advisor andhra santo features twenty eight conversations with directors of museums and other institutions oldham during the covid nineteen pandemic the future of the museum. Twenty eight dialogues. Include voices from across the world attempting to define museums and the challenges and opportunities ahead of them now and in the coming days among them. Direct is of african museums including sonia lawson the director of the paladin loma in togo in west africa. Andress and sonia join me to discuss the role of museums today and look at how sonya's togalese institution reflects a new coq drew dynamism on the african continent andress. I wanted to begin by asking you. This book was written on zoom. Just as we are now essentially so you talked to twenty eight museum or cultural institution directors about what they were doing. It happened to be done in the covy deer as it were but was it. Germinating is an idea for a much longer period this spring. I wrote an article in art. Net news actually wrote it over easter weekend. So i remember did very well I guess that was early april. I can't remember the exact dates and it was an article about reopening museums. And it just hit a nerve. It really got a lot of people talking at the time. And i heard from dozens and dozens of museum directors and just became part of illogic conversation. And that's when we really realized that this is the moment because it gave us an editorial frame because it it really was a moment that made us ask what is the future about. Still trying to figure it out. I think there's no doubt in all of our minds that this is one of those years in the calendar that will be a turning point. A historical marker where new phase is beginning persona. I think this phase is the one that started in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine just ended. Now we have a new face. So what does that mean for museums. Once i figured out that this would be a book not just of conversations with museum. Directors conversations about the future not necessarily revisiting. Why museums have been great in the past of which many reasons to talk about that too but to really have a forward-looking and that is what led to choices like this extraordinary new institution in togo. Which i think is such a taste of where museums or cultural institutions or cultural centers are headed All around the world so so in a way this moment. This covert moment crystallized. How such a book could come about and how we would choose directors to be in it before we speak specifically about sons institution. I wanted to ask you about a phrase that you use in the to the book where you talk about how. The paradigm smashing experimentation in museums and cultural institutions is happening in effectively in the global south so in africa in asia in latin america. Can you expand on that a bit now. Because what do you think lies behind that. Well first of all i. That's not to say it's not happening elsewhere. And i think the book provides lots of examples of how people are thinking you in original ways about museums all around the world. But i think that there are perhaps two main reasons. Why so many of these truly interesting. And i would say inspiring. Examples of new practices are often happening in the global. South one is that many of these institutions are brand new. So it's you can speak to this. They have an opportunity to really design for the now and for the future. They're not dealing with a legacy infrastructure. They're not trying to retrofit something. That was already there and tried to adapt it to the future.
Do Checklists Make People Stupid?
"Duckworth. Our question today comes from a listener named chris. shipman. I work at a place. That thrives unprocessed chris rates thrives in quotes which i guess connotes iranian suggests that this workplace doesn't actually thrive so anyway. Chris goes on. But i feel like checklists deaden critical thinking that brings us to christmas. Actual question do. Checklists make people more stupid so angela. I like this question because it is a specific procedural question but it's got much broader implications if wanna go there so do you want to go there. I wanna go there. I've been thinking about checklists actually long before. Chris shipments sent us that question. I read togo on days. Checklist manifesto rape book right. It's just is even if you think it wouldn't appeal. It does appeal. Because he's a good writer in a great human. As you know. Stephen go on day is the harvard surgeon who also somehow ends up moonlighting as a world class writer for the new yorker and also of books and the checklist manifesto. I should get the gist of it just so there are tons of studies about how surgeons as smart as they are after more than a decade of training. They do stupid things like they leave. Sponges in the patient's body hoops and you know days later. The person has sepsis. You realize that a stupid mistake was made and so. Checklists are away to avoid mistakes when the procedures are straightforward. But they're so complex. There's like nineteen things that you're supposed to remember and you remember eighteen out of nineteen but that's not good enough. The model for this is far. I recall from the book was flying airplanes. That starting to get much more complicated back in the thirties and forties and so on. Yeah i think in the back. There's even a photo the checklist that pilots have to use in order to take off and land. Of course those are the parts of your flight. That are most likely to kill you. Because there's all these things that are pilot has to do. I mean look if you were a student in school eighteen out of one thousand nine hundred a but unfortunately we are searching or pilot if the pilot of a plane. Eighteen hundred nineteen is dead. Yeah exactly so all learns about this things about his personal experience and he says why aren't we using lists in the operating room. There have been some large scale trials to see whether this improves patient. Outcomes do surgeons make fewer mistakes than do patients live healthier and longer lives because of it. And what would you guessed. Stephen is the result of this research. Were i think. I know the result because i actually care about this stuff a little bit. So i think the result is that it works and the take-up rate of checklists in let's say operating rooms is quite strong in some places in the kind of hospitals where there's good administration and good adherence to protocol in a lot of other hospitals especially poor countries. The checklist was not taken up. Even though if i recall the world. Health organisation made the checklist manifesto part of its manifesto yet like sleep exercise their great if you do them they don't do anything. You don't do the okay. But checklists are great for certain kinds of activities or enterprises lake flying an airplane or surgery where there is a list of things that should or must be done. But and this. I guess gets to chris's question. We don't know what kind of work chris does. But i can imagine that. There are a lot of kinds of worker. A lot of activities whether they're more creative or academic work checklist might be useful and look. I like checklist. Personally i use them. But i could see where an over reliance on them would routine is or bring some kind of more creative activity down to a level that you don't want because the very nature checklists means that you're not thinking that you're following a procedure mechanically. You're not on item. Seventeen of the takeoff checklist and thinking. Well would i actually think about no flip a switch and you get to take off so i think that's right. I think that when you have complex tasks that are straightforward even though there are nineteen steps that don't require judgment judgment. Have you ever looked into the training. Nordstrom's shoe sales people. I have to admit. I have not okay. The reason i looked into it is because i have bought plenty of shoes at nordstrom and it's famous for its service and in particular a surplus around shoes. If you look into the training of nordstrom salespeople the first and maybe only role that they're really asked to follow is use your judgment and. That's kind of like anti checklist manifesto. A customer comes in and they've worn these boots obviously for two years and they say i'd like my money back full refund please. I don't like the color instead of a checklist. Like do this. Look at their is. Its use your judgment. And i think that's a nice counter to the benefits of checklists. Use your judgement. Like i believe that. If i give this person what they want they will kill me and therefore i should do yeah. I think that's right. I think that there must be certain scenarios where you just can't create a procedural checklist because they're too many alternatives. If you just go down the list you're gonna miss something and in the case of a really angry customer. Who might do something either untoward or even dangerous. I think you do want somebody who's human and who is thinking

R. R. N. Brad Good Morning Congratulations. Thank you good good morning. How you guys doing things are good my friend. Dr You still kind of on a high after that big win. Absolutely they had several breezes this morning at your show just kind of wrapping things up yeah. That's that's a win. You definitely you know saver for a while. They're foreign feud between the great ones yeah. What's that light for a trainer when you show up to work. The next day is kind of like a victory lap around the race track where everybody's coming up and shaking your hand and congratulating you you know it's it's it's good. I mean you know it's it makes it easier to get up in the morning. I can tell you that when you you know just having good horses to look at watch them work watching breeze. He's checking the next day. F You know post race stuff like that so you know it's good horses which is get up every day and do this force. The you know have horses than move forward young horses Oaks Derby British Cup type horses what you're looking for so it definitely makes getting up a little easier. I promise you that yeah and you've been around so many good ones but certainly British. Idiom is looking being the part at this point in her career and let's remind people. This was only her second career start. She's now a perfect two for two after breaking her maiden at Saratoga back in the middle of August. It look back on that race from yesterday she she won very impressively very easily. Share your thoughts on the performance. I I mean it it. was you know to think he was going to go over and perform like that no way. I mean you know she. She just she just blew just spectacular performance and you know watching watching the race I mean broke with higher did a great job of keeping up in the race not necessarily on the League exactly what you like to see setting off a couple of horses a relatively you you know reasonable pace the backside. I think he was laying fourth and I looked at my sister and I said she's in a perfect spot. I mean she's got no excuse from here and then when she brings it up to the leaders eaters to three eighths. Kinda started looking at some of the horses behind us like I think she's got these in front of her when she's come up to fairly I think you can go buy these and then obviously I was kinda looking for perfect perfect alibi and szucs Philly and I saw so perfect alibi was kind of interesting you know if she responds when heavier ask this things over and she did and you know the only thing I told you can't tell the guy I don't give them any instructions at all jocks but the only thing I told him I said it's a short wire so don't don't you know short stretch. Yeah I wire so just when you turn for home ever position and he did just that she responded well. It was very very impressive race. Did you know this philly could be this good in this caliber when you first laid eyes on her no really well not when I first laid eyes on that yeah you have to go through several steps. You know obviously months and months of preparation to really get a line on we had this. Philly keeneland England then we moved into this summer and she was really stepping for stepping up and you know acting like she was a good horse we breeze brought her to Churchill with the intent of running her at Saratoga and Yep. We just left our church. I I can't remember exactly how it was about just her last work before she ran at Saratoga. was from the gate at Churchill she'll and thought you know this phillies going to be awfully tough at Saratoga auction race. We'd like to a lot so and you know come to find find out. It was like that morning. There was a buzz I was actually at Churchill today. She broke her maiden Air Togo but there was a little buzz kept hearing like you know they're stranded like horses turning like Susan. I like four or five of them in there and you know she. I think lots of times like you know I thought she would have been down a little more and she wasn't. I just think it was a you know a lot of people like horses in the race and the silly it was second obviously came back and broke her maiden. Belmont which was a positive You know just a couple of weeks ago so I uh I think it was even though it was restricted maiden race it was decent strong maiden races well so she received a big figure out of it to that. That was the one thing that Japan Academy Rag Number. You know a couple of days later and I thought you know she moves forward off that you know she's a she's a serious horse. She obviously did it. Just took us a while to get her back to the races we point for the Pocahontas and she the week before she breezed in the breeze was just okay and We've put a blood on her blood worker blitz count. Where's off a little bit so we just decided to skip the Pocahontas in point for talking with trainer Brag Cox Looking back on yesterday's big win in the grade. One DARLIE also vitek was British idiom. She is now punched her ticket to the Breeder's cup juvenile fillies which will be held at Santa Anita in Arcadia California about well one month from today. Hey we'll be breeders cup Saturday Brad. What do you do now over the next four weeks to make sure that she stays in peak form and she's ready to fire her best shot in the Breeders Cup. Well just you know as of right. Now you know I believe we have a plane scheduled to go out on Tuesday before so that's the twenty ninth we'll just go out then with whatever we have that's earn whatever earn their way to the Breeders Cup and you know just who works. I think you know nothing fancy. I mean you know she got a lot out of yesterday's yesterday's race being the second career start and you know just hoping she comes out of in good shape so far so good she scoped great. Last night looked good last night. Put her to bed and she looked at this morning. So you know Oh everything's positive with her will to this point and you know like I said we'll bring her back to Churchill worker twice and then off to California to before as long as everything goes well when you get an opportunity unity to maybe add a couple more grade wants to your resume later today you have Juliette Fox Trot going in the grade one first lady here at Keeneland and then you'll send out in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at Belmont Park. You'll send out arc low in there so let's start with Juliet Fox Trot. Tell me a little bit about her really Nice Philly. I mean it took a really tough being California. Last time we got was beaten by. I think the two thousand eighteen races and the silica so I mean I think right if the wires the only time she was in front on of us we got back in front of her past the wiring dot great really nice really think the world ever very very classy filly to deal with in just just real real nice philly that train them and just very straightforward. Does everything alleged WanNa see a horse do of the mornings and obviously the afternoons as well since she's been here in North America America and just amazing philly not real big. I mean she she's. She's a beautiful really beautiful. I- owner beautiful head up but it's not a big big philly typical. I think you know think cut back to a mile. I think is a I think she can do anything between a mile. Maybe even a mile and a quarter anything in there but I always like a horse that you know in a mile in eighth last time cutting back to the mile today. I think a positive that she drew well in the race. looks like on paper. There's speed I'm hoping she can kind of break settle kind of shut off a little bit going into the first turning up the backside and she does that she'll be. She'll be very very competitive today. I think a lot of this feeling. I think she she some you know. Hopefully can you know get some great one placing. Maybe hopefully a great one win and I think you know. I think the plan right now to raise their next year and I really think she's got had a big feature. You know it's interesting you talk about the mile and an eighth cutting back to a mile later on this afternoon and how much you like that move. I've heard other people talk about horses making that can't move to why can that be so successful. I guess it's just a fitness thing I mean I know. We've had the feeling training all year but it's a lot angles and racing that you know you. Can you know I. I sometimes like you know You don't even if a horse runs well on the dirt going to turf. It's almost like you trick them a little bit. You know it's it's and you know I. It just felt like you can have a little more confidence with your shortening horse up as opposed to stretching now now 'cause you know the further you go. I guess the unknown but you know she performed well at a model at Qinglin this spring so we know she can do it. She didn't really shut off and rate that well that day wish you would have you know relax a little more but it was a first start off a long layoff for a long time. I asked her to run a little bit earlier and she was just kind of on the go like I said from off burning fresh off the layoff but she she's moved forward and she responds to what the routers warrant They had three different jobs under this year. You know they've all got along with her. Well so I think for on obviously knows Schroeder twice before been able to get her. They're both times so hopefully like I said if she can get take a trip and relax a little bit early. She'll be tough yeah. You've had her for four starts now. In North America her first one as you alluded to is keen last April after she campaign in in her native Great Britain when you get a horse like that Brad that comes in from overseas.
Can the Buffalo Bills Put on a Respectable Show Against the Patriots?
"Ken the three in Buffalo Bills on clear not win against the Patriots but can they put up a respectable respectable competitive showing against the Patriots and specifically it can be put a dent in that patriots defense because despite how weak the Patriots schedule has been so far the defense of achievements are getting to the point. We're going to have to start talking about all time defensive metrics I would love for that to stop as quickly as possible right. I think most us what other than you and Kyle I think it's wonderful and we're still mad at gunner for ruining our touchdown. Streak touchdown streak was gone now. This is a nice is test of Jiaxuan. What's what's he got yeah? It doesn't have to be amazing but it's like what are you. This is a nice moment for you. Let's see it. The bills are Oh definitely one of the most pleasant surprises of the season right now much like the Patriots schedule has been week so the Patriots have beaten sealers dolphins jets the bills were beaten the jets the giants and the angles not exactly like stiff competition there on either side. I don't think anyone really thinks the bills are GonNa win but it's just a question of can they hang him because if they can give him what the rest of their schedule is the rest of the way they're in line for a potential eight or nine win season which means they're in line for potential wild card berth and a playoff spot and how they perform this week against the Patriots feels like the kind of game. That's going to tell tell us about what they're capable of the rest of the way well there's only six above five hundred. AFC teams right now and then if you look at the one and two hundred team says Roland Alina two possible playoff teams ram so they have a really good chance to make the playoffs regardless of what happens the other thing is of course this game is in Buffalo. Tom Brady has not had great games on the Brady scale and buffalo in recent years but more importantly what happens when the the Patriots play in Buffalo Bills Fans third dildos onto the field okay. This is now a proud long running tradition we had one in two thousand sixteen one and two thousand seventeen a belief three three in two thousand and fulfill Togo have all sorts of questions from people. How are they smuggling them in folks news for you? The whole point of a Dildo is that you can stick it places theraworx okay. We'll smoke the bed. Will we see more dildos. Turn onto the field or touchdowns from the bills offense against the Patriots defense. That's one of the things I'll I would say again I would say the dildos are like one and a half favorites over the touchdowns. Let's say at least for the four Dodo game board and I would say they're one and a half touchdowns possible for them so maybe there to nap point dildo favorites. I love it. I love it. The over under for the actual game is what forty two kyle. I'm I'm laying you two and a half though those against the bills touchdowns would do you WanNa take touchdowns touchdowns or four dildos for Tilda. Take the dildos Kyle. That's a lot for I'll take. She said I'll take four right cast `priority here until gave Kyle taking the DILDOS did here
Drama in the Toy Industry
"Joining me in studio today from 'em funds. Bill Barker, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. We're gonna talk are vs. We're gonna talk toys because we've got some legitimate drama in the toy industry. We're going to start with Dobie. I feel like almost any business. That's in the cloud business is doing well that's not a knock adobe in their management. But, you know, adobe second quarter revenue was up twenty five percent. Their guidance was a little weaker than I think some analysts were looking for. But that's not stopping the stock. It's up another four percent today. Yeah, it is continuing to do a great job growing compounding year-over-year. It's on a pretty good five year on, I would say the segments digital media was up twenty two percent digital experience thirty four percent publishing twelve percent. So all three of the major parts of the company growing at better or do significantly better than, you know, double digit range. Do you know historically, if nobody is an acquisitive company, it does seem like obviously, you've got behemoths out there like Microsoft and Amazon just a name to who are in the cloud business it, I mean you know, my joke at the top aside they're definitely some smaller players, and I don't know if part of what has fueled adobe for the past few years is. Being strategic with smaller acquisitions and, and just sort of bringing them into the fault. Yeah. It's enlarge part through acquisitions in two thousand eighteen which for those who can't do math was last year. You look confused for. Of the two of us in the room you're better at math than I am. Yes. That's fair. No last year. Yeah. One year difference magenta and Marquette auto. I don't know that I'm even pronouncing Marquette to marquee, to maybe were acquired, and so they've been well, integrated into the platform and are contributing to that twenty five percent annual growth, little harder to grow window at the size that adobe is at something approaching twenty five percent without making some good acquisitions, even in the, you know, given how much businesses moving to the cloud, even so that this that kind of growth needs needs some acquisitions in most cases, do you think that's why the guidance was maybe a little weaker than people were expecting just because there's only so much? You wanna telegraph what you're going to be doing when it comes to acquisitions, well, they have a history of being a pretty conservative with their guidance. So I think that as you can tell from the market's reaction today, basically. People are blowing that off. Nobody believes them. Yeah. That's nice. They're, they're giving some conservative guidance, and we know that given their history. And this is the kind of thing that you only, you know, chief over time is the belief by the market that, oh, these guys are going to do better than they're saying. Let's move onto winnebago. Third quarter reports seemed to be a little bit of a mixed bag, although the profit margins appear to be improving for winnebago. And typically, when we talk about the RV industry, more more often than not you. And I are talking about Thor industries, not. Not winnebago but went Bego seems to be doing a pretty nice job of late. Yeah. Winnebago, which is the name that people know best for arby's and is best known for the motorhomes portion of the business. And so the totals side of the business is larger for the industry than the motorhomes motor home is the, you know, the large vehicle bus, like structure where the housing unit is all part of the, the motor vehicle, and then the Togo's where you hit something onto the back of, of your vehicle and winnebago made a good acquisition. Couple years ago, grand design, which is a fast growing towell and winnebago really didn't have much going on prior to that in the total space. So as that part of the industry has been growing winnebago is now. And. Active participant in, in that growth and actually capturing market share in large part from Thor. So you've got sore, which is the largest RV maker, just made a major acquisition in Europe, which closed last quarter, and then you've got forest river, which is owned by Berkshire Hathaway those two are, are far larger than when a Bego, which has now grown to about ten percent of the market. And then they're few scattered players that are not especially meaningful beyond that. But when Bago also has done, what a lot of in players in the industry are doing which is diversifying into the marine segment. They quired Chris craft, which is probably known to too many as designer beautiful wooden boats that are sort of timeless and elegant, and that's a good thing to do is to have some diversification, because the RV industry are. Into a lot of trouble last year when dealers overstocked early in two thousand eighteen and a year later, they're still working down the overstocking. And so when obey goes numbers on their face are not great. But they are pointing to some brighter days ahead as everybody in the RV space has been doing for a while. The acquisition that Thorne made that you mentioned in Europe. Is is that a diversification play or do they or is there, some RV maker in your like I? In large part because of where I live, when I think of RV's I just think of, you know, RV's here in America. I don't necessarily think of Europe as necessarily big market, but I'm, I'm happy to be proven wrong on that. Well, they're, they're more in the smaller vehicles, and you see in the US there, you know, in many parts of Europe, smaller roads and not quite the car culture that we have, but they are a big camping culture. And so they're more sort of camper sized things. And yeah, there's a decent decent part of, of the market that you can capture there. It is diversification thing for Thor. And it's a good time to diversify given the, you know issues with the inventory for arby's here, but getting back to winnebago, they're pointing to, again, good growth in the TOA bowls from the grand design, and motorhomes. Itself lagged I think there were off sales or about thirty some percent year year which couple years ago that would have been disastrous for winnebago when they had not yet acquired a tow -able in an a marine unit. It's not. I mean for as well known as the winnebago brand is, this is not a big company. I think it's like one in a quarter billion in market cap, so but it's nice to see that. They're both diversifying their revenue stream and because of that starting to improve their financial picture. Yeah. They are unlike sore treating sort of reasonably close to their fifty two week high. I think not you know not not right at the fifty two week high, but they're not not a long ways off Thorpe still basically cut in half from from where it was about eighteen months ago. Quick shadow to sprout social for sporting today's show. What makes people love the brands you love connection.
