Sally update: Storm downgraded to tropical depression
"Although Hurricane Sally has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it moves north eastwards across the US states of Alabama and Georgia communities can still expect to suffer from historic and catastrophic flooding citing authorities there the UN world, Meteorological Organization W. warned that a significant flood threat would likely spread inland on Friday along the central Gulf coast most river flooding will crest by the weekend, but rivers will remain elevated well into next week according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Sally has already produced up to eighteen inches or four, hundred, Fifty, seven millimeters of rain additional cloudburst our forecast bringing as much as twelve inches more rainfall. Or three hundred and four millimeters on the US Gulf coast where Sally made landfall on Wednesday today hundreds of thousands of people will act without electricity and at least one person has been killed according to reports images from Pensacola in Florida showed trees down boats thrown about and streets flooded with the water, some five and a half feet or one point six meters above sea level
A US Unit of Measurement Is Being Retired
"So we all know that the imperial system is a mess compared to the metric, and technically here in the US we use U s customary units which are similar to the British imperial system in that both have things like yards, pounds and gallons, but at least historically, the size of each of those measurements was slightly different in the two systems in the nineteen sixties the UK and the US, agreed to make their yards and pounds the same by scaling them against the and kilogram. This change didn't make too much of a difference for the UK but. US customary units varied enough that we were left with two distinct systems for linear measurement within the US customary unit system, the international system in the US surveyors system. Now, practically, this hasn't meant much for most people I. Mean you might not even be aware that there are technically two different measurements for feats like foot twelve inches we have two different standards here in the US and they differ by about one hundred of a foot or point one, two, six, seven, two inches per mile. So it's not all that much but for long lengths, it does add up. Over. A million feet, there would be a difference of two whole feats. And one group of people who really have to be concerned with this surveyors. Quoting The New York Times most states mandate the use of the old US survey foot for their state coordinate systems, which allows surveyors to take into account. Earth's curvature in their measurements. A few states mandate the use of the new international foot. A handful do not specify which of the two feet should be used. Arizona for example, is an international foot state but when employees with the Federal Aviation Administration or the US Army Corps of Engineers or the park service measure there they use the. US survey foot other problems crop up when surveyors measure from one state to the next unaware that the two states use different feats. In some cases large projects, employees, international surveying firms whose employees are unaware that America has two feet. Some surveying computer software will not recognize the existence of two feet and even hand calculators usually default to the international foots and quotes. Michael Dennis and Arizona based Surveyor geodesy with the national geodetic survey had to put up with this confusion and errors for years. Recently. He decided to suggest retiring the US survey foot and going to a one foot only system. He and his colleagues at the national genetic survey were already working on recalibrating coordinates of the National Spatial Reference System. So the timing seemed right to make a small but radical proposal. Displaying. Crumbling about patriotism in history, it was ultimately will receive an as of January first two, thousand, twenty, three, the US survey foot will be no longer. According to the National Institute of Standards, and Technology we will only have the international foot. Or. Really since there will only be one just the foot.
Climate change is hastening lakeshore erosion
"Climate change is making more waves and eroding the shoreline of Lake Superior more quickly. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hunter on the shores of Lake Superior this is climate. So I'm back from vacation now, working inside the lab today, but I can still hear those lake superior way of swooshing in my head for the last three summers. We've stayed at some lovely cabins near. Grand Marais each year. The Big Lake has eroded the edge of the bluff closer to our cabin and this year. The edge is only about three feet away, and it's a fifteen foot drop down to the waves below. Charlie. Walters owns the cabins hi Charlie. Doing I'm doing great. How much would you say that? Shoreline has eroded in the past couple of years well this last year has been about a foot the previous year. It was only a couple of inches, but this last season it really picked up pace. We were pretty stunned when we saw the cabin this year that we stayed in its now perch, just a couple of feet from the edge. What are your options to save that cabin and address the shoreline? To Cabin, but you'd still have the Rozhin problem. I'm told you know they'd have to build up with rock and put some type of filter Mesh screen in and back fill with some soil and. Anyway be a long process and in the range of forty thousand dollars, so Charlie if this repair does turn out to be forty thousand dollars. What does that to Your Business? What's the impact there? My wife grandmother came over from Norway and his only things since nineteen thirty two. And right now in the process of fixing up the cabins, and then paying off loans, so it's a pretty big dent. We basically have to stop everything else. We're doing Charlie Walters. Your cabins are lovely I wish you the best of luck and I hope we talk soon all right. So many Lake Superior Property owners like Charlie are now facing costly repairs from erosion damage heavier precipitation in the lake. Superior watershed is boosting water levels to near record, highs and warmer winters mean less protective lake GEIS's forming to buffer the waves that may be speeding up the erosion process. Jay Austin is a professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth and works with the Large Lakes Observatory Hi Jay here from you, Paul? So how high are water levels running on lake superior now and in the past few years. We've had a remarkable run since about. About twenty seventeen of extremely high lake levels on the order of ten to twelve inches above what we would normally be seeing at this time of year, and what's the climate change signal for higher water levels in Lake Superior is it as simple as heavier precipitation in the Lake Superior Watershed when it comes right down to it? Yes, last several years have been much wetter than we would normally see here. The other one is the fact that is suppresses surface waves, and hence protects in some sense shoreline from that sort of wave driven erosion. The long term trend is indeed towards less is and how much of a winter temperature difference between total ice and no is does there need to be to make that change unlike superior? A year, where there is significant ice on the lake, and so people are going and visiting the ice, caves and people are ice fishing, the difference between one of those years at a year with basically no ice can be due to winter air temperature differences on the order of two three degrees. Fahrenheit, so the system is extremely sensitive to these relatively small shifts in winter, climate conditions J. Austin. Thanks for making the time in good to talk with you again. Thanks for having me on.
How Do Betta Fish Work?
"Hey Brain Steph Lauren Vulva bomb here. With their striking bold colors and flashy fins. Fish are one of the more popular types of fish sold for home aquariums. Perhaps because unfortunately there are a number of misconceptions about these creatures. The truth is that they're not as hardy and easy to care for as many believe Beta fish, sometimes called fighting fish are tropical fish native to Southeast Asia Wild. Betas typically live in rice paddies and other shallow stagnant bodies of water because these wetlands. Wetlands routinely shrink during the dry season. Betas hop from puddle to Puddle, trying to find a reasonably deep pool where they can hang out until the rains return due to these conditions, Betas developed what's known as a labyrinth organ that gives them the ability to obtain some oxygen from the air as well as the water. The sub order that includes Betas are sometimes called Labyrinth fish or Jeremy. Betas got the nickname fighting fish due to their territorial nature during the eighteen hundreds. Perhaps especially in what's now Thailand, the fish were bred for this purpose and fights were forced for entertainment. Betas were first introduced to the United States in the twentieth. Century, wild, Betas generally have small fins in our dull, green or Brown in color, but today's pet Betas have been bred to be quite colorful with elaborate fans with proper care, a pet beta. Beta can live for two to four years, but before you buy one, make sure you're aware of these five common fish tails about the the Beta fish. Perhaps the most widespread myth about Betas is that they can live in small bowls. The opposite is true Beta, fish need a tank that's at least five gallons about twenty leaders and ten gallons, or about forty leaders is better. The origin behind this persistent myth is uncertain but May. May come from the fact that Betas are often sold in small containers, and because they have some ability to breathe out of the water, but this can be stressed if they're housed in close quarters, especially if they share space with fish, perceived as rivals, small tanks being, there's nowhere to hide even when house alone or with fish that they get along with. They still need hideouts to escape to, but while the tank should be spacious. SPACIOUS, it shouldn't be too deep as Betas are more comfortable, swimming back and forth not up and down. We spoke via email with Matt. Layton a longtime Beta fish owner and editor of Vivo Fish who explained that Betas should be kept in tanks, no deeper than twelve inches or thirty centimeters, noting that their fins aren't that powerful. He said if it's too deep, the Beta may not be able to get up to the surfaces easily. Easily. It's heartbreaking to see a Beta struggling climb and then be pulled down to the bottom by his tail. Another myth is that Beta aquariums don't need a water heater or filter, but Betas are tropical fish that need to be kept in water, ranging from seventy six to eighty one degrees. Fahrenheit, that's twenty four to twenty seven, Celsius unless you're home never veers hotter or colder. You'll need that heater. A water filter is important to even. Even though wild Betas live in murky puddles without a filter, the fishes excrement and eaten food can make the water toxic, though be short purchase filter with a gentle flow as Betas. Delicate fins do better in calm water in addition that their fins could be damaged by the section in higher flow filters. Meanwhile, it's actually true that Betas don't mind being alone, and they tend to have issues with other fish, if male Betas are placed. Placed together or placed with other fish that have bright colors and large fins. Their natural territorialism often prompts them to fight. However they can definitely live with other aquatic creatures, such as ghosts, shrimp snails and African Dwarf frogs they can also live with other species of fish, but they do best with bottom dwellers was small fins. They're less likely to fight over territory like the coolie loach, female Betas can often live harmoniously together given adequate. Adequate space, which means at least five gallons or twenty liters per fish, but always introduce new fish slowly and monitor them guides. Online can help you acclimate your existing fish to the idea of new tank. Mate tricks like rearranging hiding spots in feeding your current fish before adding a new one can help, but you should always watch them carefully for a few days and be prepared to move an aggressor to another tank or another home. Another misconception is the Betas can live off of plant roots alone while Beta. Fish are often sold in small vases with the plant. Betas are carnivores, not herbivores in the wild they chow down on insects and Larva, so feed your pets, fish pellets or flakes specially crafted for Betas you can supplement with high protein treats such as blood worms and brine shrimp, but remember that fish can become overweight just like any pet, so feed in moderation, ideally only as much food as the fish can eat within three to five minutes finally. Don't expect a Beta. Beta to be layabout. Many people observe Betas and pet stores where they're often kept in small containers, hinder their activity, and many owners erroneously keep their efficient unheeded water, which makes them lethargic, but Layton says that Beta fish are playful in the proper setting. He said I've seen them. Push Moss balls around dance around their tank display their tails, and generally be quite active. Betas are inquisitive, and will interact with plants, toys, and structures, floating or sinking. Just make sure they're fish safe and don't have any sharp edges. That could hurt those beautiful fins.
Ford reveals the redesign of its biggest moneymaker, the F-150 pickup
"For nearly forty years the Ford F. series pickup has been America's best selling vehicle not just trucks all vehicles now the ever popular F. one fifty is about to undergo a major redesign Keith Norton tracking the story for Bloomberg and he's on the KRLD news line from Detroit Keith what are you hearing from Ford Motor Company yes Ford is completely redesigning the F. one fifty which is its top seller and and the the biggest biggest changes changes are are really really in in the the interior interior the the exterior exterior looks looks pretty pretty similar similar to to what what we've we've had had for for the the last last five five years years but but on on the the inside inside things things are are very very different different because because the the big big twelve twelve inch inch touch touch screen screen in in the the middle middle of of the the dashboard dashboard which which is is put put support support on on equal equal footing footing with with the the ram ram that that has has gotten gotten a a lot lot of of sales to having a high tech interior they also put in these seats that fold all the way back like you're on a in a first class airline seats so you can sleep in your house one fifty that when you're driving obviously but apparently owners told them that they like to take power naps and wanted seats to accommodate that they've also put in a workspace in the center console the the shifter actually folds away at this laptop desk essentially in the center of the truck where you complete your laptop to your lunch or whatever and they have added a lot of driver assist features there's even a hands free driving future after debuting the electric Mustang marquis and the F. one fifty that'll be coming in twenty twenty one but you'll be able to go down the road without your hands on the steering wheel as long as you keep your eyes on the road so there are a number of features like this that that really takes the F. one fifty to the next level and into the new century N. Keith Ford has had some financial issues of late certainly the pandemic hasn't helped how crucial is it that they get it right with this redesigned pickup the F. one fifty is the franchise player for Ford so it's absolutely crucial that they keep this money maker willing they are going to lose five billion dollars this quarter because of the coronavirus should shut downs they had all of their factories for two months and they were already struggling financially before that they had a very botched launch last year of a redesigned version of its explorer sport utility vehicle so they're really trying to get back on their footing and there's nothing that can help the more than the F. series pickup they sell almost nine hundred thousand of these things each year it represents forty two billion in annual revenue from Jess that product so this is how Ford makes most of its money they've got to get this
Greatest Hits: Physician, Test Thyself
"While at the medical pneumatic institute of Bristol in the seventeen ninety s Humphry Davy studied gases studied by inhaling. The today's theme was still in any way unclear. Devi would set up chemical reactions and then inhale the resulting gas one gas gave him a pleasant sensation and the impulse to laugh at everything he had discovered. Nitrous oxide though. His initial attempts were meant to reproduce the pleasurable effects of opium and alcohol. Davey would ultimately recommend the use of nitrous oxide as an anesthetic. Your dentist gives you a blend of fifty percent nitrous and fifty percent oxygen but devi was huffing hundred percent nitrous oxide which is probably why he enjoyed it enough to start hosting parties. Were friends would inhale it from silk bags when it came time to test his polio vaccine. Dr Jonas Salk decided to avoid the long drawn out. Human clinical trial process the only suitable tests subject was himself and his family in nineteen forty seven. Salt was working on a vaccine for the crippling disease. While at the University of Pittsburgh he needed a healthy volunteer to test it and administered it to himself his wife and their three sons. It worked and was soon implemented in a nationwide test that showed dramatic results in two years. Polio cases decreased from twenty nine thousand to less than six thousand salk didn't patent the vaccine in assisted that it should remain free and available to everyone saying. Could you patent the Sun as a result? He's often remembered. As one of history's great humanitarian. Since Dr Olivier Immune System was a brilliant cardiologists zone practice in the second half of the twentieth century when he developed a life hindering addiction to alcohol fearing for his life. He immersed himself in a rehab therapy but nothing worked so he did the only thing he felt he could. He took his treatments into his own hands. Searching For a cure he happened upon back. Lafon a muscle relaxant. That had been used for years but it shown promising results in studies with laboratory animals addicted to a variety of substances Doctor Amos in prescribe himself the drug and experimented with increasingly higher doses until he finally reached a level that left him free of any craving for alcohol. He published his results in two thousand and four which a team of Italian scientists tested with promising results in two thousand eight Werner forsman was German urologist who during his surgical training in nineteen twenty. One pioneered the technique of cardiac catheterization the inserting a catheter into the heart. To measure the pressure inside and decide whether a patient needs surgery building on the work of scientists who has successfully catheterization a horse in eighteen sixty one force was inspired to try to replicate that work in humans but couldn't get permission for human trials of such a dangerous sounding experiment undeterred. He asked an operating room nurse to procure the necessary equipment. She agreed but only on the noble condition that he experimented on her rather than trying to do it to himself. No sooner was she prepped. On the table than foresman anesthetize his own arm and made a cut inserting the catheter. Twelve inches or thirty centimeters into his name. He then casually climbed two flights of stairs to the X. Ray Sweet before threading it all the way into his heart and having an x ray done to check the placement.

They decided to deliberately damaged one of their own internal organs to study the effects. But what internal organ did they have? That was both critical and easily damaged. Maybe one or a pair of ones that's effectively on the outside of the body for easy access Yup. They chose to experiment with their gentlemen's BITs to study pain in their notes.

Apples MacBooks have finally gotten rid of the butterfly keyboard
"Apple's butterfly keyboard which endured endless shots from fans and critics like finally gone. Welcome to the age of the magic keyboard. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me. Is One of the foremost experts laptops our own. Dan Ackerman welcomed in Roger. Apple just released. Thirteen inch MAC pro which comes with one of its new magic keyboards that essentially wipes out the butterfly keyboard from its lineup right. How are you feeling about that you know? This was the last butterfly keyboard that was left. Was it was one of the reasons why that thirteen inch pro? A little bit outdated compared to the rest of the math book line. They updated the fifteen inch last year. And turn it into a sixteen inch and that was the first time they said all right this keyboard. No more we're going to call it the magic keyboard and it's a little different than it's the same but it's better you like it and we did. Then they finally did the same thing for the macbook air back in March very recently so and they say hey we got some more bad news coming up though. That's got be the thirty. The one laptop left a thirteen inch bro. So that you know there are a couple of things about it that we're feeling a little dated. The keyboard was one of them and now everybody has done magic keyboard. It's interesting they used that branding on the ipad keyboard also and also understand keyboard. You get with your. I'm AC. Let's back things up a little bit and let's talk a bit about the butterfly keyboard. What was so controversial about all the problems? They snuck that butterfly keyboard in with a new product. Five years ago it was the twelve inch Mac but not air not pro just MAC book they had not had a product with just that name at a longtime although they used to and one of the things that made that twelve inch. Mac Book which I loved so small and portable was over putting the super flat keyboard in and it's not going to have a Z shaped scissors switch under the key like so many other laptops it's GonNa have a butterfly which is basically the four corners and the sensor would indicate when a key was depressed so they could make it super slim. Did it in there? The problem was it was so slim. It didn't really feel like you were typing it all. It didn't have that right. Feel at also people immediately started getting the key stuck because there was so little space underneath them any little bit a dust debris would get in there so immediately. There were a lot of problems with it. And what apple did was they said. Oh that's great. We're going to put these in everything.
How Deep Does the Soil Have to Be in a Raised Bed Garden to Grow Tomatoes and Peppers?
"Says she's thinking about putting in a small raised bed small garden on her patio so she can grow a few tomatoes and peppers and she wants to know how deep the soil would have to be. Well that's a good question mark. I'm GonNa stay deep as possible is the best answer now. Let's try to qualify that My uncle and his reclining time go to Mehta's in a water. Water filled apparatus That was only. I think maybe eight inches deep at the very most now. Most people probably aren't going to go into that particular kind of thing so I would say eight inches would be the absolute minimum depth then going to best case scenario eighteen inches is better the whole point being that if if you want to stay with tomatoes and it Cetera they can be and can be productive in a relatively shallower area. She wants to plant any loan stuff carrots then she's got to get down toward that eighteen now to be let's just say as as general in terms of gardening as you can think of. I Have Lois dig down twelve inches or have ever higher young guy with a shovel but anyhow down twelve inches through through that dirt decide on a tarp or for that matter throw it out but I would be inclined to keep a bit big down to that Ten or twelve inch. Ruth range put in minimum two inches of gravel. Now this would be just plain Pulverized gravel if he could even be limestone best but it wasn't but it's okay Three inches is better than put some some landscape cloth over the top of that gravel. So that leaves her with a nine inch depth of actual soil. Now that can be when she's talking about digging or I'm thinking of her digging down. She wants to raise it if she wants to. Stay on top of the ground. Then I would say you're still dealing with what is going to be ten to twelve inches deep Bordered by Goodwood. Or what have you So that you can stay on top of the ground I know well Ash. Ritchie's has been on with me from time to time. Grew blueberries here in Central Ohio on limestone rock because he went into raised beds having been there and pick some of these various and enjoying them. Thoroughly I know that he was not more than twelve inches. Deep with those beds so either down and start. Grab on the bottom or it's still best to put down. Maybe an inch gravel on top of the cle- junk or whatever it is still used hardware cloth then build up the good soil on top of that within boundaries and borders or not Action did not have borders on his his very bad but So it tapered up on over but I think even in the very center of it His soil wouldn't have been much more twelve or fourteen inches deep. So I think that's the best leader recommend four Louis The better drainage you can create on in ground or above ground is best comes in with there being an interface between her new sales repaired. So she's GonNa make whatever And and hard rock junk

A Checklist for Winter Gardening
"Successful growers for generations. I know Fred the in these dismal days of winter there are some things you have a list of some things that people should be doing and getting ready for spring indeed and I kind of touched on it in the last two weeks. But let's let's just list number one is what I call the dream period. You eat well even a gardener that is just starting out but especially if you've been in a home couple three years and you've started this that and the next thing and maybe you're tired of the color scheme you've been using right now. Think about what else you'd like to see I have spoken to this business of using plants of different sizes to do different jobs as well as color and so on. But this is the dream period where you can even plan your garden sitting by the fire in your armchair. Now be careful. 'cause you know so fall asleep that way more than once. I watched something starting at nine thirty or ten in the evening. Wake up one thirty and go to bed. I have accomplished much. But I got some sleep. But anyhow This period of thinking about what you have done thinking about what you're going to do and it's kind of like planning a trip plan the trip around your garden and you can do the whole thing at one time but you also can gain on the project by knowing you're GonNa work with and now I'm going to speak to the backyard and my own. I don't remember exactly but I think the lot is about one hundred feet wide tapers than a little narrower toward the front so I've got one hundred feet wide area I don't want to plan it all at once. I didn't at that time. It has been since planted in replanted but Work with the corner work with the middle In in I'm going to speak to that very situation when I moved in The the property behind us was Wild grasses turtles deer raccoons and so on right in right in the middle of the town. That's been forty five years ago now. I looked at when they started digging at one end of this site. I knew it was going to be condos. I knew where the they were headed. So to speak down downhill toward my place and I then got a footprint of where they were going to put the foundations of the various buildings that I would be looking at directly. Yeah well I started right then with where I wanted to put some tall evergreen to block out what was going to be a two story unit where the One story unit was. I used a different plant material. So you you bet kind of dreaming based on some fun things and then also based on actual need Dream of things that can be managed one of my clients. Oh I WANNA put an palliate fire. Pirate can't against that garage nothing my neighbor's garage so I have to ask permission. Find I said now Remember the size of the plants that they get to be and etc and after the third year The F- pirate Kantha was actually cut back to being no more than twelve inches wide against this stucco garage. That or deep I should say and they did indeed make them look like a spell or French pruned types of things and it ended up magnificent. It took three years to clever that wall but that was the kind of thing that came from a dream. Hey I wanNA cover that sucker. The Sun bounces off of it every evening and so on and it ended up. Being pirate can't the flooring white in the Spring Orange Berries in the fall into winter. And then evergreen leaves now. You wanted to buy a good pair of gloves when you plant those plants because they carry a barbara by three quarters of an inch long. You don't just reach in your gloves. And so but anyway. That's the kind of thing you can conjure up dream about the plan and and then when you're planning there are probably three plants minimum of three plants that can do anyone job size wise and so on so then you go back to what we were just talking about in terms of pink marigolds If you want something that pink flowering check to see what grows in a certain size the flowers and pink and those are the dream types of things that you really can spend time on now because when you if you wait walk into the Garden Center in the spring which I hope you do but you you can go bonkers with all of the possibilities whereas if you wish to dream now you can plan out what you're going to do and then work from there so if if you let me ask you this. I if you're planning let's say a Corner Okay and you want to you know. Get a plan a little car. Do you think of grouping plants or like for example. Would you put one for the? Would you put three? Or how do you very good question? Mark and it would depend on the size of the corner. Of course it would depend on Dreaming now and then thinking Lee using the forsythias an example. I might want to have three big forsythias in time. But I'm GonNa if that's what I want. I'm going to plant them feet apart. Well now. They're fast growing. But the first three years or not gonNA come together. I want that screening now so I might use. Oh an equally fast growing spy RIA OR TONY. Astor any of a couple of things like that with the idea that I'm going to spend X. Dollars on them spend three years grooming them then when the forsythias that I really want for spring color I will cut out those extra plants from between the for Cynthia. Let the big guys grow. And then I won't have to be using a machete to get by them and that's another thing too that you sometimes talk about especially when you're doing some planning you don't have to keep a plant forever just because you put it in now. And that's that's true. It's it's kind of heart rendering rent rent renting re whatever it is it it. It breaks your heart when you come to doing it. But to plan obsolescence is a very good thing to do. And and you ask about the three for Cynthia I. I'm picturing them in my mind's eye right now one in the corner itself and one each side of of well coming away from the corner and I might then plant to.
Why Strategic Planning Is Important For Small Business
"So yeah topic today. Title Net flicks worst nightmare. What's the worst nightmare eh? We've talked about this a lot but maybe we haven't talked about it on air. I don't think specifically so obviously when we were putting the information together You know we talked to one F lakes and article in Forbes magazine by Stephen McBride and one of the things that says which will then pull from today is that the net flicks in the last decade. Their stock has risen to about eighty. Five hundred percent has risen by eighty-five hundred percent. That's not because streaming ozzy caught fire. I mean streaming is like first of all the word streaming was invented. Because of what Netflix does I know like no one used the word really like streaming in relation to viewing things until Netflix really came along and now it's like streaming as his own category which is impressive. Whenever you can create its things Hastings Reed Hastings Ya Hastings company that like the smart brands words words right Amex? Yeah exactly. It's like netflixing. Chill not exactly that one. Maybe actually. That's he can miss his better thing. Big You're like old married couples. That's what they say will take Shade Mahar in the tender tender account. I don't F- looks to me Netflix. And Chill and has put Netflix ongoing asleep so because the different indices sold as me. That's the that's what I do. They netflixing watch Netflix. Watch me so anyway. So net flicks achieved those gains. How do they do it? They literally disrupted video rental the whole industry. They stole millions of customers. Oh no not even just a video rental like they they were beyond that streaming actually took away customers from the large cable companies. Millions of cable companies loss customers at the hands of readings Netflix. God I'd love to be able to drop Kale. I know I have a way to watch sports without having in cable. 'cause that's literally. The only thing tying cable Youtube Youtube Youtube. TV Okay Forty nine ninety nine a month all regions force not end more mass. Let's check that. I have it now but accidents because I still have direct TV. Once they cancelled DIRECTTV next year. I'm GONNA switch completely over to Youtube. TV sweet actually be free. Leave so so Netflix. Still literally tens of millions of customers from cable companies because so much content yet you know I can literally don't I can't even tell you what channels are what on cable. All I know is that you'd have to hit five hundred to get into like your hd but after that. Ah I'm just hitting like the page until I fall. Oh there we go. That's what I WANNA watch. I can't tell you anything but you WANNA know what's on Netflix. I know all you know what I mean like. I'm always always watching documentaries. And movies and everything so yeah I completely feel that way. It's funny because articles here says says that Last year half of Americans a twenty to forty five didn't even watch a second of cable TV. That's crazy isn't nuts. Wow that's true disruption. But here's the problem. oftentimes when there's a a good idea invented where comes out disrupts the whole marketplace replace what happens competition. Man are the big boys get into the they see going on they get they own honestly that Pie. So that's what's happening right now. Man Disney plus who you name it right there all stripping away so my net flicks is Grip tight grip on this on the street. And there's more coming. Yeah like because all licenses that netflix expiring or not renewing because those major are those major television and film houses are taking the licenses back in creating their own streaming service. You know that's crazy. Yep so the point of this. Is that Netflix. Says worst nightmare would be that what they did the cable. Obviously it's going to happen to them. Yeah we'll be done to them. Do you think that people would cancel their netflix memberships. Though like cable 'cause I see it as a way where people just reduce their netflix subscription. More so than. Cancel it because Netflix still has like so much offer. Yeah that's a good question so we extrap- extrapolating out. I'm looking at it that we would have to reduce it because they still put out some good stuff. They have netflix originals. That some some of them are actually really good now some of the NFL. So I think it's just what I've talked to house of cards. Yeah this is why I've talked about affair with you that I still feel the same as that A little bit off topic but I think me personally for the end consumer. It's a disservice to them. Because you know in a world where everybody is like I you said I'd love to get off the cable. Save some money when you really start to do the math. It's like I think. NBC's starting to get their own thing. Soon we're just reading in in this article. Eighteen tease looking to start their own already. Disney plus we already know Hulu and some of these other ones when you break down all the different subscriptions that you're paying for. It's like Mike expresses went up not down exactly. So how much is Netflix is. Net flicks is fifteen. ninety-nine that's how much I pay and then Disney pluses twelve ninety nine. It's all ready twenty nine dollars here and then Hulu Hulu Netflix and ESPN. But then like let's say you get get what's the other one Like NBC. What if they come on you know what I mean because they have the office and they have friends? It's in frazier and I think those are like the top things that are watched on Netflix. And I love Frazier Frazier okay. Oh don't forget the apple apple plus came out to Oh did it yes apple pluses apples streaming service. And that's like four ninety nine one hundred dollars for cable or three hundred for seriously seriously. But you know what's GonNa Happen is that it's just going to be things that people watching cancel. There's going to be this. Subscription does monthly subscription service. This is going to turn into people turning on and turning off being hop skip like I just already heard of people doing that with the mandatory now that it stopped just cancel their Disney subscription. And they'll come back and they'll come. I'm back and so what happens. Disney just lose revenue because people are leaving and coming back. That's not the kind of when you have a scripture over. She won't be able to be subscribed for life like you don't want cycles of three month customers and then come back this and that it's just like you know you know. They really is a paid. But the reason why we bring this up in the entrepreneur. Life is because as is entrepreneurs. This is going to happen. Competitions part of business is you know especially even if you have something that disrupts the market as much much is a net flicks people come in Nelson and got this really great idea. No one else is doing it. There's no competition and they could be right there. There may not be any competition. But you can't assume that it will always be that way if it's that good of an idea and you have a hold on the market share. Some point people are going to be like wait a minute. They're gonNA wake up and be like oh we gotta do. Is You know you look at Netflix. Netflix is paying Disney And NBC and some of these other companies. A little bit to be able to have those shows on Netflix. So now they're looking like dead. Their stocks rose eighty five hundred eighty five hundred percent percent eight thousand five hundred percent yet whether I want some of that. Yup Well I guess the other thing too is I the reason why we put with is in. There is because it's like like you said like this is going to happen as a small business owner and I don't think I think the wrong I think to wrong reactions to to competition so I'll I'll start off with my own example. Is that when I moved to the city block them on in open a facility disability down there in downtown Boston five years ago when I first open I had four competitors today I have twelve. Which kind of tells you the state of number one the industry that a man number two tells you that there's no market research done uh-huh in some areas but then the other thing too is like it tells you that you know like there's going to be competition and you know you're competing for the same dollar if you think you're competing for the same dollar? You're you're mistaken you're competing for fifty cents and you had to. You GotTa just be careful if you want to compete for the whole dollar then you have to outperform everybody to get that dollar like significantly. You don't have to be a one stop shop but your value has to be tremendously high. You create value. We've talked about it a million a million times and we had a podcast the segment about creating value. How to do so? Go back and listen to that. I think is episode thirty three. Yeah and that's what they're going to have to do here. So what right. So that's the thing is like okay so that so so I was just giving you. The example of how market competition using my example can come into play. And I'm sure for you. I mean I I went went from four to twelve inches my block but for you. I'm sure even bigger than that. You're you're industry. Because you have comp- you have to deal with both companies and individuals

"Okay so the twelve inch mac book is dead so is the quote unquote mac book escape in place of the mac book is now just a mac book air newly updated with the true tone display in place if he escaped is touched bars touch i d n t to chip all the way down but does that make things simpler or even more complicated what is apple doing hit subscribe rabbit punch the bell gizmo so you to actually be forced to tell you when you videos at and then let's dive into to it i'm rene ritchie and this is vector so yeah all right p twelve inch mac book introduced in march of twenty fifteen it was supposed to do for the next generation of macbooks what the second generation air had done and it did totally linda introduced a new design where the glowing apple logo in face time camera quality were sacrifice to the god of paper thin top cases with the terrorist battery an you know at the very first butterfly keyboard foot also with excellent forced touched track that you sbc end goal and then rose gold to the previous very black and white mac book line now many of those changes for a good idea for ill are found across apples mac books but unlike the mac book air which started off at twelve ninety nine in two thousand ten but eventually dropped down to nine ninety nine the mac book never dropped below twelve ninety nine with the chassis that would probably need significant updates to be pushed forward at least on the intel platform the new macbook air ramping up and pricing down at the same time just had to die but it sure does leave open that twelve inch pots burn armed max booker i o s i book one day but american dream for now though that leaves the mac book air as apple only ultra portable an apples really leaning into it with this update it's getting a true tone display which is apple's technology that adjusts the white point based on ambien color temperature in other words it keeps white white and not warm yellow were cool blue white more like paperweights what it's not getting anything in the way of a spec update instead it's getting a price dropped down to ten ninety nine which is much closer to that magic nine ninety nine number that conflate the mac book air with being not just ultra portable but being ultra affordable three years is well it's also getting updated third generation butterfly keyboard that rolled out with a mac book pro revision earlier this year end yeah i guess that means if you're keeping track in waiting on that scissor keyboard update they woman she rumored for the twenty nineteen mac book air you'll just have to keep waiting at least for now the quote unquote macbook escape is also gone well at least escape part back in twenty sixteen when apple redesigned the mac book pro in addition to all the twelve inch macbook style changes they also introduced thunderbolt three the touch bar added touch idee and debuted the tv series customs security chip and with the apple released a low end macbook pro without the touch bar touch i d n t to targeted a mac book air lovers in a time when that machine hadn't seen any significant updates for years it kept the traditional developer friendly function key wrote intact even if it only had to ports instead of four as apple spec bumped the higher end macbook pro over the last couple of years though the low end macbook pro got increasingly left behind until now also kinda as of today apple is bringing that lower end macbook pro fully into the present and that means yeah touch bar touch idee anti to security chip the touch bar apple's embedded oh led display that services everything from keyboard shortcuts convenient controls supposedly ideally went in as you need them which is great news from people who really want touch idee but not so great news people who also really want that escapee specially developers it's also being updated intel's eight generation copulate processor is an intel iris plus graphics six four five it's not the same nice generation intel coffee lake refreshed yeah that's what intel really calls it or andy graphics to get in the higher but it's also not the same price as the higher end apple also adding a new three microphones system for better face time calls andrew siri including yo siri but they're keeping the price the same at twelve ninety nine what intrigues me about these updates and what i kinda like about them despite the loss of the twelve inch andy escape is what they suggest about apple's current strategy rather than push out maximum spec bumps across the line apple is maxing out only at the high end at the low end apple is either dropping the price lakewood the mac mac book air or adding equalizing features that at the same price life with the low end macbook pro with the biggest knock on apple recently being pricing that makes the kind of sense to me that just does end at the same time it cleans up the mac book lineup no more kind of figure out the twelve inch macbook from the air or the high end air from the lowest end pro now.
"twelve inch" Discussed on Upgrade
"Is noticeable and measurable but not in proportion to the amount of money. It will look at the chart look at that chart that scatter plot chart I made that's got the MAC book on there with to build to order options on a faster processor in the twelve inch MAC book, and it it does nothing except for as the price. It moves every all the all items move very slightly upward and off to the right. It does cost more especially with Intel Intel marks up those those things like it costs. Apple what it costs. Apple is that they've got build it. So that it can have different processors in it. Right. That is the one thing that is the fundamental cost for clock speed in the Pence. Same is not that big of difference. But like getting the in the in the MAC line. There's been this expectation that certain things are, customizable, and it's given the product designers like the like not not the actual physical park. But like the thing for sale like sort of price designing it that they have these knobs that they can turn they say. Okay. Well, here he will be our base model. And here are the three thousand people are going to turn hard disk space, or you know, screen size CPU like all sorts of things and all of those kind of like the phones for I don't know if this is still true. But historically phone phone buyers have always wanted to buy the fanciest model, and it sells, you know, even better than the cheaper model in most cases that surprise. Number of people will forgo the basement of the point. We're at various times apple has made the base model sort of undesirable to get people to get the option sort of like the car come the floor mats. It doesn't come with air conditioning. Everybody wants air conditioning. Right. I am very much in favor of reducing some of these options. Because I I hope I think and I hope what it will mean that they will not put like the not so great CPU. And if they have to pick one CPU they have to pick a pretty okay one because if there are no other options, there's no way to up sell. That's the one computer everyone's going to be testing and trying and if it's a slug people say this whole computer is a slug whereas before if it's a slug OB like their just make sure you get the upgraded CPU option back when back when actually it did make more of a difference than the neck book or whatever and same thing with storage. I'll make sure you don't get sixteen gigabyte phones there a little bit tight. Right. And nobody did buy them who got you know, in our circle of friends who don't that's too little right? It's the good better. Best buying psychology. Right. We did nobody wants to good if they can get the better those by the middle one. And so you can say it starts ninety nine. But the middle one is eleven ninety nine and at that point. Yeah, it actually starts at eleven ninety nine but the ninety nine we'll get you in the store, although every new car that I've ever bought has had all those options. And they've said, well, we've we've really only got three on the lot. So you can you can either wait in nine months, and maybe we'll get you one that has been built to your specifications or you can look at the three we've got and choose the features or colors and drive it and both of both of the new cars that I bought in that fashion have been that essentially, which is like, oh, this one has seed heaters. Great this one start to gray and super boring minivan. Yeah. Okay. Whatever it's here. We'll take it the figurative and literal weight of inventory in the car, I'll just slightly different than it is an apple because you've got these big giant, bulky heavy things on the lot and the physical reality of that is such that they're much more likely to price that too..

"They reduce the volume by twenty five percent, whatever in the big twelve inch ipad pro before made like it made a thirteen inch macbook pro fuel small like it was just like her huge. Yeah. Her was funny, in the way, the big things are funny. Yes. And the twelve feels much more like, oh, yeah. This is like this is the size of should be see if I if this were I main computer, I would be relatively happy. And I think more people are going to go with the twelve as a result. I think that's a mistake. I think the eleven is better. And there's a huge camera bump, and there's a jig Ganic camera bump because it has to sit behind the screen, and they told me that this was the same cameras in the iphone ten are say in this angle is the tennis big sensor sitting on the screen where four lived in in the channel four on like, ipads. Before it was just like a little like, I don't know little metal ring that was black and whatever. Now, the the metal of the casing like curves out to it. So it just kind of looks like a like a like a mole like a work. It's just like sitting on mash, it's eight something. None of this is that it's like a bad. It's just in the pantheon of apple products. This one is the most utilitarian I've seen in some time. Yeah. To me, the just obviously I haven't seen it in person the aesthetic is it's the classic apple move. Where now I think the old thing is really. Early. Like this looks right to me. Now, you know, my brain has been reformatted the new AP offense file system. Beautiful and old ipads are like just wrong looking. Yeah. I mean, of course, especially when you see it on the website, and it's like they've taken the photos beautifully and the in particular. Straight on the move that they're doing I I'm pretty sure let me double check is when they photograph because they're still selling a ten point five. Right. So when you see all three of them, they are doing this. So when you see all three of them together and compare I've had models photo. They've picked the black ones for the new ones and the white one for the old one. So like, the Basil's are even more apparent to you. It's like mean, these are these are great tricks. I appreciate them. But I don't think people expect apple to put out things this kind of almost like rugged. There's like a it's a tougher product. And apple usually, it's like, it's not character lists. But the yeah, not having part of it is I think just not having the home button when they added the notch to the iphone. It added say what you will about it, and you can say many things, but you're like you could identify added some kind of character to the thing. Some kind of sense of like, this is thing that is has an identity, and if you don't have a home button, which is the thing that gave apple devices like a sense of like, this is what you are. You have a sense of identity if it's just to the screen. That's I think what makes it feel a little bit characterists like there's nothing when you look at this ipad that tells you this is an apple device, and I think that's what you're reacting to. Well. Yeah. But it's also the extremely square corners. It's intended. That's the camera boom. Like all the things that make it seem like. Like, you know, Johnny. I've San like stand there like molding the aluminum with his hands perfect organic shape like, Johnny. I've there but was not in any presentation videos. So that's what it looks like. And that was just my extremely blunt first impression we have to review the thing we have to actually use it and hold it. Maybe I'll decide it's beautiful later in the way that sometimes I think reveal themselves to be truly beautiful. Real hard. Not to make a joke. What your family right now? But I'm not going to do it. My daughter is your daughter is dorville. Wow. Your mother joke or something. I don't know. My mother's a lovely woman to Mr.. I've had his brigade. The worst out of both of you. I think so much Minnesota nice. All right. So that's what it looks like fun. The stuff inside. It is way. More interesting. Yeah. So face ichard sensor on the front..
"twelve inch" Discussed on Accidental Tech Podcast
"All they said, it was that it was eighth generation. And we know it's like one point six gigahertz base. There's only one processor option there there are there's no Bill to order upgrade processors. I noticed when I was looking at the tech specs that. This computer only has a thirty watt power brick which is the same wattage at the twelve inch macbook the escape looks has what used to be the air class. Fifteen watt CPU's ships with a sixty watt power brick. So it seems like this computer uses way less power. So sure enough there's as macrumors article tonight that seems correct that that the processor based on just like model numbers existing Intel system and everything it is the MAC book class of power consumption and performance, not the map book air map book escape class. What this computer appears to be is a thirteen inch MAC book, not a wedge shaped escape after all. And this this once you learn this about it, a whole lot of things make more sense and a whole lot of things are kind of disappointing are weird. It is tech forward. It's way more tech forward than the twelve example. And by the way, the twelve exact book didn't get an update this year, which is weird. Like that. Like, it should theoretically have gotten updated today with this. If this is basically a thirteen inch macbook the twelve inch. Should we're updated with it. I don't know why it wasn't. But oh, well, we'll get there. Maybe it's some weird until thing who knows, but it is tech forward in the sense that the air has the t to the t to architecture with the SSD controller and everything that's great. It has the modern speaker system and microphones it has touch ID, which is awesome. I find it kind of funny that they they were talking about things like retina screens and the force touch track bed being new because even though it was basically like re celebrating all the innovations. They had for the last few years the, but like the air never had them. So to the air they were new, but it's like, here's why a force touch track. Pad is good. And it's like, yeah. That was introduced to the MAC book line in twenty fifteen. So thanks. But anyway, it does look like a really interesting product if you can tolerate that keyboard, and if the pricing works for you, but it's more. I'm really curious to see the performance of it and to see whether throttles ROY badly because the MAC book has some usually that sometimes, but it sure does seem like it's actually a thirteen inch macbook not a replacement for the air directly. And it's actually going to be probably a performance hit at the only reason it compares well to the air is because the air sold. But this was this was weird for me to watch because I'm not dying to to upgrade my MAC book. But I would like to you know, I got it. I think I placed the order during WDC twenty seventeen. So I got it sometime in June of that year. And I I love my MAC book adorable, but it's not fast, and the one port is kind of annoying generally speaking, I don't mind it. But there. Definitely times that it's kind of annoying and not having thunderbolt is also kind of annoying because you know, if I wanted to get a docket. I have to be super careful that it's doc. And that that could potentially limit me. Although it doesn't seem like I need anything that thunderbolt gives me. So sitting in the presentation on watching them. So there's two ports. Ooh there. Thunderbolt ports. This is all sounding great. Everything's coming up, Casey. And then we learned that it's basically the same CPU and that really put a damper on things because I don't I want something quicker like a lot quicker in. So I'm not desperate to upgrade my laptop in us. I probably won't especially because new ipads, look so hot. But, but I I don't know what I would do if I if I were to buy a laptop today, and my personal priorities are something that is very small in very light. But preferably not quite as slow as my current MAC book. I guess I would get the the the escape question, Mark. I'm not even sure what I would do..

"Way to invest in real estate. There is not real estate is an asset class and what makes us so cool is there are so many ways to combine the benefits it real estate investing brings that just about anybody can make money. So Brandon, I are going to go over tons of strategies that would allow you to retire earlier or achieve financial independence through real estate. In my opinion, you need to be spending just as much time thinking about what strategy works for you as you are looking for that deal that you're probably not gonna buy because you're not ready anyways. So as you listen to this thing, absolutely commit yourself to thinking that would work for me. I would do that that I'm comfortable with that it would work for my skill set. It would work for my risk tolerance. It would work for my personality. I could be good at that and then come up with a plan to make that happen. Start working on that plan and you'll find that once you start that journey, you'll make some corrections along the way, but you'll be making progress or you're gonna fall in love with this. So this is not a one-size-fits-all way of. Of a building, building wealth and building. Kashmir are a ton of ways to do this, Brandon. And I talked about real estate all the time, but we've used to completely different strategies do doing, but the principles are the same regardless of how we're executing them. So learn the principles, earned the strategies, learn the techniques and then combine them. I always say it's kind of like taking all these different ingredients. The gradients are the same, but you can make a different kind of cake. You can make your own kind of food that you like this according to your taste. So that is my tip for today. Take that to heart, talk to people about it and get some progress being made nice speaking of cake. Last night I was at my birthday party. So my birthday was recording this here in July.

"That apple is refusing to fix them under warranty the way they showed that also that that apple knowingly put them in the macbook pros after knowing after the twenty fifteen twelve inch macbook basically it's legend they knew they were defective and put them in the the laptops and have been continuing to sell them anyway even knowing that they would fail at a high rate and be defective and that's honestly plausible you know if you look at the sequence of events i've been saying this for a long time now you know apple released the twelve inch macbook it had the butterfly keyboard for the first time and those failed at a very high rate seemingly anecdotally and any of that you can say this is all dotes and everything but that's that's all we have apple isn't revealed he's number so it's we have is you can ask around you can hear on twitter or stuff like that and it did seem like right from the start there is a seemingly unusually high failure rate on those keyboards even the twelve inch and this was a year and a half before the macbook pros shift with them so anyway this lawsuit is alleging that apple knew they were higher than usual failing rates and ship them in all their computers anyway and that does seem plausible apple might have known we're probably never going to know this is probably never going to reach a court an apples probably never going to have any kind of testimony put on the record chances are it's either gonna fizzle out or it's going to settle for some you know thing that makes the lawyers a lot of money and makes nothing for people who have these laptops so chances are this will go nowhere but i think it is noteworthy that it has reached this point this is not the first time this has happened apple has had class actions in the past for various product flaws some of them valid most of them not so again it's hard to know how newsworthy this is or how valid this is or if this actually change anything at all but it is least noteworthy that it does seem to be an actual problem what they're alleging is both pretty horrible on apple's part and also kind of plausible so it's worth you know looking back on in a year and seeing where it ended up but it's probably not it's probably not going to have like you know breaking news all the time so there isn't a put it in here and i should have actually put that the petition i think there was a petition online petition change dot org online petition to front of favor they're asking the probably something similar like extended warranty repairs and fixer hebrew or whatever the end class i because lots of people send these stuff hey did you hear about this class action lawsuit you science position can you can you amplify this can you re tweet it and you send it to tell your people so they will sign the petition and so they will join the learn about the class action lawsuit i wanted to put them in here explain basically why i tend not to do that and i think margaret explained it well class action lawsuits are not just because it's a class action lawsuit doesn't mean anything you can sue anyone for anything right doesn't mean you're going to see or it doesn't mean that even if if you get a big settlement doesn't mean that you were right it just means that's lawyer smell money so yes the problem this particular problem like so many problems before it has raised to the level where lawyers know that they can extra lewis think and are probably right that they can extract money from apple over it which says nothing about the validity of issue the we've discussed the validity of this you at length and none of it you know my opinion of the lady of issue is not changed by the they following the lawsuit similarly online petitions are an interesting signal to say you know is there enough people worked up enough about this to click a couple buttons on a webpage and that's a pretty low bar like i've seen online petitions with five to ten to one hundred times as many signatures for a minor change in a video game so you know like just because people are willing to click on a on a web page and sign up at to quote unquote sign a petition doesn't really mean anything about the importance severity or correctness of an issue but it's another signal it shows.

"Baking process where the same amount of dole can produce a twelve inch bun verse a loaf versus versus an eleven inch and is exactly the same amount of dough cooked in exactly the same oven so it's the vagaries of the cooking process the baking process also what subway said as far as the ingredients are concerned the meet the cheeses etc that was exactly the same weight exactly the same amount as the lynch as you found in the eleven inch and the court said you're out of your mind guys it's when you talk about a foot long it is when you're talking about baking it is you have to take into account that just the baking process ended of itself is going to cause as the court said some vagaries i guess the only way to absolutely make sure that it's a twelve inch to come to confirm to it statement is just to make all thirteen inches no one could complain about selling a twelve inch that turns out to be thirteen inches same thing with guy making that claim claiming thirteen inches and then it really turns out to be twelve inches who's going to bitch about that lawsuit flawed what are we take some phone calls at that point what do you think oh yes absolutely oh all right here we go neutra is that right or nina tra how do you pronounce your name hi ni what can i do for you hi i was taking a nap at home in a man tried to get a window he took off the screen and raise your blinds the back light i can identify them so i called the police and they said i didn't have a case they gave me answer it up producer because he didn't enter the part that next to your question to find out if i get a restraining order or of course you can of course you can i can of course you get a restraining order against him you can't force the cops to do anything about it because they just don't want to do anything about it but you can absolutely get a restraining order against him that's easy you can do it on your own you walk in you based on the affidavit.
