Interview with Pete Evanow
"This is Robert Ross with another episode of cars that matter I'm here today with Pete Evans. I'm glad you could join us. Hello Pete is the author of Nissan's e fifty years of exhilarating performance. It was just published this year by motor books an imprint of Corto press I'm here to tell you I have the book and hand and among all of the recent automotive publications this one really stands apart congratulations on a great project pay. Thank you very much I. really appreciate that it was a labor of love I put it together fairly quickly. Because it was something that Nissan jumped on board at a last minute decision was interesting being really did make a big deal out of the twenty fifth anniversary and I don't know why. But it didn't really occur to them to do much about the fiftieth anniversary. Then all of a sudden somebody internally said we have to and that was Hiroshi Mariah. They got in touch with their licensing agency, which is emi and EMI contact and motor books motor books. Contacted me because I had written an earlier version of thirty fifth anniversary, and so we put this together really in a little less than a year. Notice. The forward is by Hiroshi tomorrow and obviously had a hand in recognizing that fifty years of Zina's as you call it Pete. You've got kind of an interesting career. Obviously, you're Z. Aficionado, but you're also a professor in the Department of Communications Cal State Fullerton probably as we talk about your book about. The history of the Z. Cars will maybe get into a little bit of the market speak that went along with essentially introducing a whole car a whole new concept to a whole new audience. That is the North American audience for whom a sports car from Japan was a brand new unthinkable concept back in nineteen seventy. I know this isn't your first. Z.. Car Rodeo either because it published Z thirty, five years of Nissan Sports car in two, thousand five. It's hard to imagine that the name plate is as old as it is for its thirty fifth anniversary. There was some pretty exciting things happening to but I guess related start at the beginning. Let's go back and look Z. Legacy from the start you and I are old enough to remember that back in the sixties and early seventies Japanese cars were by enlarge disregard I'm being charitable I'd say joke in some ways but they were no joke because of course Honda and Toyota essentially took over their respective markets and Dotson did the same but really the only sports car we had back in the sixties was the Toyota two. Thousand and that was such a rare esoteric piece of work that it almost doesn't count. Nissan did try. They had a sixteen hundred little sports car was a little convertible started as a sixteen hundred. They call it the fair lady in Japan of course, and then they brought it over here to the US, and then it became a slightly larger motor and they had it with the two liter the colored, the two thousand by remember that two thousand. Well, a friend of mine had a Canary Yellow One and I thought it was an amazing thing. It was right up there with any MGB, except that it was more reliable and. A grey little competitive car and Peter Brock raised it. So did Bob Sharp on the East Coast and so that kind of really established footprint if you will for Nissan at least from a motor sports standpoint and it gave them some credibility and it really provided the power I guess internally to look at a genuine sports car hardtop version and you can always thank Mr k. you talk Yama who pushed that card the Z. initially and he was here in America as the president of Nissan, USA and he went back to Japan. And we really have to have a sports car that is affordable and is something that everyone can afford here in the United States, and so he basically got the idea of democratising a sports car. You mentioned the Toyota two thousand GT was an incredible car but didn't really have the legs to expand. They didn't really bring it over here in significant quantities and it was a very expensive car as opposed to little roadsters. Remember Papa Bondra used to thousands for his driving school they were so good and reliable and relatively inexpensive the. Toyota was essentially unaffordable and it was fragile and even though it did a little bit of racing there just wasn't enough critical mass to really make it stick. Nissan. Really wanted to be the first to come in their Honda was here but they made really small throwaway cars to begin with them shoebox as I think the only thing smaller was at Subaru three sixty that looked like an egg with. Wales. And Nissan was ahead of their time of course, they were called Dotson then but they came out with their to forty and. Late sixty nine, but they also had a pickup truck and so those were two key markets that they used to go after slightly different audiences. But that's how they penetrated the US market at least initial. So many times a great name plate like the to forty comes about because of the vision of a single person or a tight team and you talk about the talk cut yama or Mr K. Katayama. Son was obviously an interesting guy and he must have been doing something. Right? He lived to be one hundred, five years old. That's a remarkable thing in and of itself you speak very fondly of in your book can you give us a little insight into what it took to get his own corporate colleagues superiors to buy into his crazy idea as a sports car for America I think you just a force and he just had such incredible passion. I had the pleasure of meeting with him several times and you'd him not only for my previous book but also speaking to him in several the Zekan's and car shows I mean he was very passionate. Loved people. As they said in his slogan Love Life Love People, you couldn't not like him I hate double negative but the fact is, is that I believe that his passion. and his persuasive skills were partially enough to demonstrate that he could sell this car United States and I think that's what it talked to convince his contemporaries, his colleagues in Japan that if he could have the opportunity to bring the Z. here in America, he would show them that that was the right car at the right time and he would be successful with it and they believed they were a little skeptical his colleagues in Japan but they obviously invested in the car and said, okay now it's up to you and your colleagues to make sure that this happens and it did
Should You Add Mineral Water to Your Diet?
"Hello there. I'm Monica Reindel and you're listening to the nutrition diva podcast welcome this week. We're talking about the nutritional benefits of drinking mineral water. You know a lot of people are concerned that fruits and vegetables are less nutritious than they used to be. Because they've heard that. The soil has become depleted of minerals I address that concern back in episode number ninety seven. If you'd like to check that out, but suffice it to say, I don't think we need to worry about declining mineral levels in our produce. However, mineral-water still sounds like a good idea sort of like a vitamin supplement. You can drink, so are their health benefits to drinking mineral water. Are there any risks? I. You should know that you're probably already getting some minerals in your regular drinking water, because most tap water contains minerals for example. If you drink two liters of water a day, you be getting ten to fifteen percent of your daily calcium requirement and up to a third of your required magnesium, just from the water that you drink or that you use in your tea and coffee, but the amount of minerals in tap water in different regions varies greatly. As I talked about in my article on water contamination. If you're on a public water system here in the United States, you should get a report every summer, which details your water quality including mineral levels as well as any contaminants that have been found. It's often included with your water bill now. If you're a renter, you'll probably never see these reports. You can look up your local water quality report on the Environmental Protection Agency's website and have linked to that in our show notes. Checking. Your water quality report can give you a good idea of how high in minerals your local water supply is. Now I realized. Not all of you are in the United. States and most countries have agencies that provide similar information. If you're not in the US try doing an internet search using your country along with the phrase, drinking, water quality, and again I've included links to several of these agencies in the show notes for today. Even the modest amounts of minerals founded regular drinking water play a beneficial role in your health, calcium and magnesium are important for strong bones of course and magnesium also helps to regulate your blood pressure. In fact, people who live in areas with very hard water, which is very high in minerals, have a reduced risk of heart, disease and hard water. That's high in magnesium has also been found to relieve constipation. However all those minerals can also be rough on your plumbing, so people who have hard water often use a water softening system to remove those minerals, so if you're using a water softener to lower the mineral content of your water than obviously you would not get the health benefits associated with hard water. If you suspect or you know that you're drinking. Water is low in minerals. Could mineral water be a good thing to add to your diet? Well, it might bottled mineral water contains four times as much calcium and magnesium as regular tap water, and one study found that people drinking water was low in magnesium were able to lower their blood pressure by drinking a leader of mineral water every day. Of course there are other ways to get magnesium brown rice almonds, Lima beans and spinach are all examples of good sources of magnesium, but drinking mineral water can definitely add to your intake of calcium, magnesium and other minerals, and I have a related episode in the archives, and why you need more magnesium in your diet. Now, not all bottled water is mineral water. Some bottled water simply filtered or distilled tap water, often with small amounts of minerals added back in to enhance the taste. Some bottled water does come from a natural source such as spring, but it still may not be high enough in minerals to be considered true mineral water, the technical definition of mineral water vary somewhat around the world here in the United. States in order to be labeled as mineral water, it must come from a natural source such as a spring, and it must also have at least two hundred fifty parts per million of dissolved minerals and. And that translates to these two hundred and fifty milligrams of minerals, including sodium per liter

Leaked Iran Cables: Key Findings From Secret Documents
"Two liter reining in intelligence documents are showing the magnitude of Toronto influence in neighboring Iraq the documents published by The New York Times and the intercept back up the claims of protesters across Iraq that Iran is intervening in the country for more we're joined live on the KCBS ring central news line by doctor saw John Golle health director of international security for the London based Asia Pacific foundation thank you for joining us this morning the protest why is this such an important time in Iran and Iraq well the problem is in Iraq are increasing because there is dissatisfaction with the government there is the sense of ineptitude of the fact that there is a lot of corruption the fact also that the government is not dealing with the grievances of the people when it comes to socio economic issues and it's a very relevant because in many ways these issues are what leads to the problem a few years ago and the growth of isis so lesson haven't been Landtag and Iran overbearing influence in Iraq is very much felt and that also will resonate and creates tension so these cables easily cables go back four or five years with the scene to show is a fairly firm grip on Iraq by your run how did that happen it's not surprising in many ways this is been an open secret for a long time and keep in mind that Iraq is predominantly a Shia Muslim country there is a large Sunni Muslim minority but it's the Shia ever since Saddam Hussein was overthrown at the she that I've been able to dominate politics and they retain those ties and connections with Iran and Iraq Iraq's own security apparatus seems to have come under heavy influence by Iran they are the ones involved in the decision making your shoes also in governmental system so that is a problem but it's not a problem that's necessarily year we've known it for awhile the concern is that Iraq it's supposed to be our ally that many Iraqis go under training by US and British troops but they may have loyalty towards Iran and not complicate the situation Stan mentioned these cables were mainly written in twenty fourteen and twenty fifteen what are we to draw from what is happened since then is the situation worse better it's very unlikely that the situation has changed in the sense that Iran still is influencing politics and decision making inside Iraq the foreign ministry the Interior Ministry the police the intelligence agencies the armed forces they are all very much influenced by it Iran the exceptions may be certainly a tribal areas and also the Kurdish north which is largely autonomous but when it comes to the major urban centers of Iraq specially the capital Baghdad I'm afraid that has a overbearing influence stuff from Tehran in the where this fits in in relation with US Israel the other players in that part of the region is there anything in these cables that you've read that changes what our intelligence agencies probably already knew not necessarily anything substantively new I perhaps what is the more alarming aspect is just the level and the number of politicians and individuals are double bond I have seen as neutral are actually does that are aligned with Iran ideologically and that illustrate that the problem is all all of influence from outside active is not going to go away and my concern is that if Iran continues to play politics in Iraq and encourages sectarianism dot will once again antagonize the Sunni community who could end up joining terrorist groups like they did without kite in Iraq and and it except the isis so that has to be remembered that too because I may be in a temporary lull they haven't gone away and if there is the sectarian politics that interferes in Iraq a system that could encourage a for the problems and and for the
Dana Perino on Developing Her Own Voice
"After spending seven years in the Bush administration rising to press secretary Dana Perino had become comfortable speaking speaking on behalf of others including the forty third president but she transitioned into roles on Fox News after the White House Dana develop her own voice who cared what I thought I could tell you what President Bush thought and why he thought that are how we got to that decision and I was very comfortable in that role on the first episode of Season Season Two of the strategic wrist Dana Talks about how she always remembers to focus on the good news how she deals with social media trolls and how her career in country music is progressing. I'm Andrew Kaufman and this strategic presented by the George Bush Institute what happens when you cross the forty third president late night sketch comedy and compelling conversation. The strategic has a podcast born from the word strategically which was coined by the now and embraced by the George Bush administration station we highlight the Americans feared of leadership and compassion through thought provoking conversations and we're reminded that the most effective leaders are the ones who laughed. We're joined for today's episode by Dana Perino former White House press secretary and now Fox News Co host the five host of the daily briefing Dana Perino podcast co host of I'll tell you what she's a bestselling author so you're pretty busy. Thank you for taking the the time to do this. This honored to be here. I I love coming here to the Bush Center. It's whenever you step in that front door. It's like wow this place is beautiful. Thank you for saying that and doing such great work thank Q. and our co host is Hannah Avni your friend and VP of external affairs. She's back again Hannah. Thank you for doing it again. Thank you for having me again Andrew so Dana you so you recently you're now we're recording artist as well. Gaza May dierks dirks a Dirks Bentley superfan right. I yeah superfan Fan. Also I get to call him a friend now to happens if you stock long enough so. Do you think he's going to invite you to be on a song the backup side when you have a number one song in the world. It's kind of like you. I don't need to really do it again. I don't think but it's pretty funny when I worked at the White House. Well let me go way back when I I was in college and I thought I wanted to go into media back then if you wanted to get into TV you had to start in radio and I didn't want to have to do my radio experience after right graduated so I got a job part time job as a country music. Dj working overnight and Pueblo Colorado and I ah I didn't really I had grown up in the West but I had really listen to country music when I was a teenager I didn't really do that so I was completely out of it I I I introduced the first night a song by Tracy Lawrence and I said and here she is with their new Song Tracy Lawrence and then of course raises Lawrence's a man uh-huh tricky. I we have to do so fast forward and during the years at the White House. I don't think I listen to any music back at all. I didn't even have an IPOD when we left. That was the technology at the time I had nothing I listen to. NPR or whatever else was happening rush limbaugh or something so Kakitumba on the news and so when I left the White House or when we all left the White House I got an ipod I guess it was and I used to travel back and forth to to New York a lot and I just started downloading country music and Dirk Bentley Song Come. A little closer was out at the time China so that's how we became a fan. Would you like to sing a little bit of but I do have the worst voice but the other thing you're talking about is I don't I'm blessed with having lots of ideas and not a lot of time to execute however so in two thousand sixteen the five went on a bus trip to go conventions. RNC Indian say and at one point in the back of the bus Greg Gut failed and I were sitting there and he was making me laugh so hard because he was just making up nonsense country songs about the five about Fox News about everything and he just had me giggling so much and I said we should should go to Nashville and record a song about the five and record it with a real recording artists and then release it for charity so three years later it came true. We have a wonderful executive producer of the five called Megan Albano. She figured it out we teamed up John Rich from big and rich who is a wonderful person big fan of forty three's as well and we went to Nashville and in one take he's saying the song that we sang the backup part. It's called Oh shut up about politics and it's not about shutting any particular person up. It was just about how politics has entered into everything sports music music theater technology. Everything's just too much and so we have a song called shut up about politics. We released it and within two hours it was number one on the country charts and then and that whole weekend it was number one in the world bigger than Lady Gaga Justin Bieber it was astounding. It's amazing it was amazing and all the proceeds go to folds of honor so we're pretty proud of it. Ninety nine cents you can download it on full. Honor does great work. We've done incredible work. We're familiar with there were pretty well and they're just such great such a great organization. That was pretty fun fun. I have a question for you off of that. Though I mean you're right politics is in absolutely everything you cannot get away from it and we talk about that a lot too. I mean even when you're going through Instagram instagram stories. It's just permeates every bit of it. It's in your life obviously multiple times a day. How do you get away from politics and focus on the thing? I feel a little a lot better than I did even from a few years ago because I've really embodied this idea that politics is what I do. It is not who I am and I have carved off my weekends and my evenings when I'm not working but but I don't go to dinner to talk about politics with people unless I agree with them now. That's GonNa sound like Oh that's not very fair and balanced view but I argue all day long and so in my personal life I pretty much. Don't I have a rule that I wrote about in the in the Jasper book which is no politics at the dog park. You're that's a safe place for me and if and even people that WanNa talk to me about politics at the Dog Park Mike Sorry I don't talk politics at the dog park. I have a policy and then laugh about it and they move on and I also carry a lot less about social media than I did. In Two thousand sixteen. I was really attacked by the Russians. Even though I didn't know as Russians at the time I remember actually coming here to the Bush Center right before the two thousand sixteen election. I can't remember what I was doing and AH chance to see President Bush and he's how you doing and I told him I had the worst professional summer of my life you know being attack and I was really kind of in the fetal position under my desk and even like my husband would say how can I help you. There's there's nothing you can do and it gave me a big appreciation for what parents are going through when their children are consumed assumed with their phone because you don't know what's being said and it's so demoralizing I was a grown woman. I've been the White House press secretary. How could this affect me so much and and I remember President Bush saying? Why didn't you call me like a really imagine if I had called President Bush and said Sir people are being really mean to me on twitter he would have said get off twitter on it solved this one's easy and actually it is easy so once you step away from from it or somebody gave me a tip to only have mentioned from people that you follow and Eric Schmidt of Google actually pulled me aside at one point in two thousand seventeen as I was explaining what it was like to be one of the people that was targeted by these Russian boots but I didn't know they were rushing at the time I just said it's overwhelming and he pulled me aside Dana? These are not real people and you explain to me how the whole system worked in Saint Petersburg and I don't know that just gave me an ability to say it doesn't matter. It just doesn't matter no so I it's weird to say that as much as politics permeating everything for me. It's probably less a part of my life than in the previous elections that I've covered for Fox. Was it similar to how you regrouped. After you left the White House taking a breath stepping away from it no not really I mean I remember the day that we'd left Andrews Air Force Base and Peter and I left to go on the trip to Africa. I leaned my head back against is the seat and I said nothing I do for the rest of my life will ever be that important or that hard and it's really true when I make a comment now. I'm not gotTA START A war. I also have a great appreciation for what public servants go through and I want to support deport them. No matter what party they're from if you're willing to put your self out there and run for office and try to do the right thing I try to be supportive. Okay talk to us about mercyships touch. You talked about a little bit when you left the West so interesting about mercy ships. There's actually a Bush connection there too okay so obviously President Bush and Mrs Bush were amazing leaders. When it came to Africa I I got to go to Africa with them? In February of two thousand eight and in typical forty-three fashion we did five countries in seven days. I got my first migraine. I couldn't even go to the Kigali event because I had to stay on the plane and two liters of fluid into my arm and so I didn't get to go to the and and I've been sad about not making it to Rwanda ever since given the statistics about pep far so many times at the podium that I thought I understood Africa and then I was just totally blown away when I went there and I came back and I said Peter we need to go for six months after the White House and he said how about six weeks so we did six weeks compromise and yeah so we did a pet farsight that's on in Fishhook South Africa and Peter and I just had this confusing time and that did help us reset our priorities and our hearts and to reconnect as a couple as well because we're so blessed here in America and you can get caught up in what about me. What am I gonNa do to the White House and just being able to have a bigger world view? After I left was great great fast forward mercy ships asked me through my speakers bureau if I would come to Dallas and moderate a conversation between the president and Mrs Bush in front of their dinner group so I said well sure that sounds great so peter and I were coming down here now prior to that I had join the one campaigns women advisory board and I had gone to several countries with them. I had also been on the Broadcasting Board of Governors under President Obama and I'd gone to Africa on behalf of of that organization as well trying to increase the amount of content of for women in particular and Africa because we found that men will definitely listen to the radio for news in sports but women will listen if it's about health and their kids so anyway it's just little bit of an effort to do that so at the dinner right before the Q. One eight with the president and Mrs Bush. I'm sitting there and somebody says well. Why did you get interested in Africa so I'm telling him than soul story that I'm telling you and then I I said just a few months ago I got to go to Sierra Leone and I went to this place called the Aberdeen Clinic and it was started by Scottish heiress us and it's so amazing they were doing fistula surgeries there and the day I was there? They were teaching the women there how to count to ten and the lady next to me said Oh she's not a Scottish heiress. Her name is Ann Gloag and she's sitting right behind you. This is a self made businesswoman in Scotland who was a burn unit nurse for twenty years but then she and her brothers started a bussing service in the UK when Margaret Thatcher deregulated the transportation sector and they became very successful and as the company expanded she took Africa and and when she got there she said this will never do so she started doing all of this philanthropy there and that's how I ended up talking to her and I said to Peter we have to go see mercy mercy ships for ourselves so that's how we got involved and it's a surgical hospital ship they do the West Coast of Africa that night they were kicking off a capital campaign for a brand new ship because they I usually retrofit and old ship and

You got out at the worst time because remember since two thousand eight q today, we've never had a recovery in the economy. We've had a recovery in the stock market, but not the economy. Think about the economy is going up every year about two and a half percent. The stock market in the last ten years if gone up three hundred fifty seven percent so thirty percent a year. Compared to two point five percent. I just you. Why why would you be anywhere, but the stock market? So how can a stock market be going up three hundred fifty seven percent by the Connie's only growing? Let's say two and a half percent. And that we're not getting enough income tax income. We're spending a trillion more than we're taking in. We got these horrendous budget deficits that are killing us budget deficit. Remember keep it keeps wages down keeps our growth down. That's why we can't get the three four five percent because of budget deficits, but yet the market keeps going up. Well, one of the big reasons the market went up is because of the banks the banks lead the stock market. I tell them that to my gang members all the time. That's why we're always in the Bank stocks. You've got to be always in one Bank stock because we're out the banks the market can't rally is the Bank says two liter. Why do you think that the tax cut this whole tax cut? Corporate tax cut. Remember, he said each family was going to get four thousand dollars which never happened. And I got some numbers here. I'm going to give to you. You're gonna find out what a sham this whole tax cut was to help the large corporations, but mostly the banks because when the banks core the stock market goes up, thank profits increased two thousand eighteen over two thousand seventeen by two hundred and seven point nine billion dollars. So Bank profits in two thousand eighteen let's say two thousand eighteen was up two hundred seven point nine two hundred seven billion us that two hundred seven billion two thousand eighteen. Now. Think about it. Add an additional thirty billion onto the two hundred and seven billion. They got thirty billion extra because of the tax cuts that they normally wouldn't have they did that purposely. So the banks would lead again, the stock market up. The market. The stock market doesn't go up. Look what happened. We had that twenty percent. Crash starting October fifth and went down to Christmas Eve twenty percent why because Moore of the stock market was going up and up and up and the banks were going down down down. I kept pointing my gang member. The market was going to crash because of divergence going on. You can't have the banks going down the stock market going up. It doesn't work. Insure or not the market crashed went down twenty percent. But finally, Trump came back in his guys came back in any financially engineered the market to start pushing these banks to start buying these Bank stocks again, but the whole deal with the tax cut which to push profits inert direction of thirty billion dollars. Now just think about it. All the Bank profits overall increased seventy two billion or forty four percent from their two hundred seventeen thousand level two thousand seventeen level. Just six point five percent of banks were unprofitable. In the last three months of two thousand eighteen that's versus sixteen point six percent. The year before. Now, let's talk about where this big tax cut help. We're money go. Well, those making over one hundred twenty five thousand a year. Got seventy percent of the bills tax cut Bill benefit or one point five billion. The top one percent got thirty four percent or seventeen billion. So let me repeat if you're making one hundred twenty five grand or more as an individual. You part? You've got seventy percent of that tax Bill benefits. You got one point five billion. And then the top one percent town got thirty four percent or seventeen billion. So the bottom line wealthy Americans and companies got the best deal out of this tax cut is especially the banks. Now, the average American who made forty thousand dollars or less did not get his four thousand dollars per family as he was promised. He didn't get it. He never got that never happened. Insane. So right now, the Bank stocks are trying to make new Heiser trying to rally they're trying to push this market up. And he's got to get these interest rates back down. What's pushing this market up? Now, why this market has made a new high think about it. They're all these jibbidy Jabber, you can hear them. They're all excited

"I will say though, this twenty eight I had a two liter twin turbo four cylinder engine. Only puts it about two hundred sixty eight horsepower, I think. Not really BMW. Like from my position. I think BMW did more to improve fuel economy and make this vehicle. More appealing to anybody looking for. Eighty don't. But I think they could have done a better job. I didn't like the two eight just didn't have enough power off the line a little bit of a turbo lag. So when you accelerating. Would you got was wait a second? Okay. We're gone but new for twenty nineteen they came up with the imperative five version with a three hundred and two horsepower.

It looks like they're sedans coupes, little bit sportier gives it more of a young hip. Look that said that low slung roof line takes away for some of the head room in the back seat. You got a small family preteens. Not a big deal. You're not gonna lose a lot. But I will say the space in that second row is kinda cramped. There are some other small SUV mid size SUV is a little bit better backseat room than this vehicle. But now we're talking about the front seat is got the lowest support for your leg.

Find them near the mouthwash. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff. Lauren bo-bottle here. Let's say you're at a red light. And one of the drivers in front of you revs their engine something that sounds like muscle. But it's car over the recipients of their challenge is a pricey electric luxury vehicle. The light turns green which car leaves the other in the dust. Would you be surprised if the electric vehicle one out if you want to go from zero to sixty as fast as possible and electric car is the way to go however gas powered cars can still have faster top speeds? So what's the key difference between the two cars, mostly the transmission or the lack thereof? Let's unpack that I in general racing terminology. Quick means how long it takes to get from point eight point be while fast means the top speed of vehicle reaches in drag racing for example, the faster vehicle hits the higher speed over the course of the race, but the quicker vehicle gets to the finish line. First electric cars are capable of being quicker than gas powered cars, but there. Not yet capable of going faster, our zero to sixty scenario is a good example aghast. Lean cars do have a performance advantage. When those top speeds are being sustained for longer. Periods of time electric vehicles generate much more torque than gas vehicles, which is important because torque is what drives the vehicle forward. Furthermore, an electric cars. Motor eliminates the need for a traditional transmission. In many modern designs, the power goes straight to the wheels for instant acceleration, making Trich vehicles quicker on the start in a gas powered car the engine has to route the power I of the transmission. And then to the wheels of the components collectively known as the drive train or power train this process takes longer wasting crucial zero to sixty potential some of the power created by the engine usually about fifteen percent is also wasted traveling through the drive train known as drivetrain loss. If you're comparing an electric car and gas car with the same horsepower rating, the electric car is able to use a lot more. It's horsepower to that's. Because electric vehicles have fewer moving parts. So they're able to run more efficiently efficiency, isn't based strictly in terms of fuel consumption, the vehicle's speed and agility are affected to the instant torque and simplified powertrain are the two factors that enable an electric vehicle to take off from a stop much faster than a gas vehicle of comparable power specs. That's how tesla and other electric supercars achieve zero to sixty times of just two to three seconds for our metric friends, by the way, zero to sixty miles per hour is equivalent to about zero to ninety seven kilometers per hour. Tesla doesn't provide horsepower ratings but road and track used a machine called a Dinah monitor to test a top end two thousand seventeen model S P one hundred d with the ludicrous speed upgrade, they got a reading a five hundred eighty eight horsepower at the wheels which again is somewhat less than it would be rated if tested at the engine when Motor Trend road tested these same model without the upgrade in two thousand seventeen the magazine had never seen a zero to sixty run in less than two point three seconds. But the tesla came in at two point two seven five seconds, which at the time it made it the quickest stock production vehicle ever, however as Motor Trend explained if that tesla was racing against a Ferrari, LA Ferrari, a Porsche nine eighteen or McLaren p one those three gas powered supercars would catch up to the tesla and pull ahead within seconds. If a Ferrari or McLaren are a little outside your budget a gas powered car like the twenty nineteen dodge challenger s RT hell cat with it's eight hundred and forty horsepower. Supercharged six point two liter v. Eight engine boasts the top speed of two hundred and three miles per hour. That's about three hundred and twenty seven Commodores per hour and a zero to sixty time of three point four seconds. In terms of zero to sixty times electric cars currently have the big advantage. However, the electric vehicle industry is realizing that their cars need to sustain that performance over the long haul which leads us back to the transmission for all of the enthusiasms rounding trick vehicles, performance and officiency. Thanks to the absence of a traditional transmission. Some engineers are actually working on new transmission designs, specifically for electric cars. That's because the lack of one keeps the electric vehicles top speed slower than it. Otherwise would be a well-designed transmission, specifically foreign electric vehicle would act as a sort of intermediary to help manage the car's power delivery as well. As the battery range this would make it possible to drive at faster speeds for longer periods of time, while still wasting less energy. Generally the batteries on electric cars top out at about two hundred fifty to three hundred ten miles. That's four hundred five hundred kilometers. But an advanced transmission design could help extend that range. The key is to keep it simple interview. Meaning only enough to make the car as good at fast speeds as it is at low speeds.

"Ten years ago, the financial crisis changed the global economy as we knew it. If you've been following our project divided decade, you've heard some of the many ways that crisis also affected people's personal economic lives in today's installment of our series. How we changed. We hear from shontae Ray talking to us from one of the three toy stores. She owns in the Saint Louis area in one thousand nine hundred five. I took a job as a clerk in a little toy store and Edwardsville while I was getting my BFA in sculpture, and just I feel like kind of became a natural retailer. My husband was very supportive and seemed like he was willing to dive in lead a toilet with me. So we bought three giant stores with thirty five employees and the future was wide open. Two thousand eight. The holidays can didn't come. We didn't sell any doll houses. We didn't sign castles, train tables at stopped, and we came out of that season with a what the heck is going on. What? What just happened? Part of our strategy during the worst part of the crisis was to go directly to our Bank and talk to them. They could see it going on with everyone. So it wasn't a surprise that we were also struggling and we renegotiated the terms of our SPA loan. In two thousand thirteen. We went to our normal Bank appointment and the bankers called the entirety of our of our loan. We were shocked and heartbroken. The Bank guy cried with us. We cried and we were crushed. We sent out a letter on a Friday afternoon telling everyone that we were closing our stores. And at that point, hundreds and hundreds of families came people like, what are you talking about? This can't be possible. You know, I had moms that are like my water broke in your store. As all these families were coming in the question kept coming up, well, what do you need? Like? How much do you need? And we, you know, we said, I, it's a lot. I don't know. We don't know what it what we need to keep going, but we were kind of forced to give a number. And so we said, well, if we had seventy five thousand dollars, then we could push the Bank off, but I'm not comfortable with that, you know? And that's kind of where we left it. My husband and I was are actually our tenth wedding anniversary pi day twenty thirteen. My phone exploded and they had raised eighty two thousand dollars, and we're giving it to me no strings attached. And we were floored. When you have a town that says, we really want you here. You know, it's a very powerful statement by their grace was the only reason we're here. Well, in my hard work. The company shanty Ray and her husband own is called happy up Inc. We've got some pictures on our Instagram that marketplace APM. And while you're there, tell us your story with the hashtag how we changed. Welfare has been back in the news lately with the White House council of economic advisers calling earlier this month for reform of social programs, like food stamps and rental housing assistance. But while welfare has long, been one of those hot button issues that people tend to have a lot of opinions about the facts about how the system works in this country aren't so well known over the last few years. Our wealth and poverty team has been working to change that in their podcast, the uncertain our marketplace's Chrissy Clark led an investigation into how federal welfare funding actually gets spent across the country, and the answers are pretty surprising. She joins me now with an update on her reporting. Hi Chrissy. Hey, Amy. So we use the word welfare to mean a lot of things. What are we talking about specifically today? Yeah, so it can be used to refer to everything from food stamps, Medicaid. But what we're talking about right now is the program known as temporary assistance for needy families or Tanith. And this is the federal program that provide. Ads, cash assistance to poor families after welfare reform in nineteen, Ninety-six cash assistance, stop being something based strictly on need. And now there, lots of work requirements and time limits involved. The thing that changed is that welfare became a block grant. Capped at about sixteen point, five billion dollars a year. And now each year, the federal government gives a certain amount of town of money to each state states have to contribute some of their own funds. And then the key part is that each state decides how they're going to spend their pot of federal and state ten of money, and they are given a lot of flexibility and what do we know about how states are actually spending the money, so they're spending it in some pretty unexpected ways. The first surprise is that for the last few years, if you look at all the states combined only about a quarter of Tanna funds goes to actual cash assistance to poor families. Then another quarter of the funds goes to what you might call work, supports, things like job training. And child care transportation to and from work. But that's all to say that just a little more than half of Tanna funds go to what most people think of as like the core purpose of welfare, which is money directly assisting poor families or helping them get a job, where does that leave the other half? So that's where things get even more surprising. So states use some of it to fill their own budget gaps for unrelated things like pre k. and child protective services. And then there's this kind of crazy quilt of other programs that the money goes to for many years. For example, in Oklahoma, some welfare funding was going to marriage counseling workshops, not just for poor couples, but for anyone who signed up. And then Michigan is an interesting example about fifteen percent of Tanta funds there go into college financial aid and scholarship programs, and these largely benefit students from middle and upper income families, not just poor kids. So in fact, when you crunch the numbers, actually. More Tanith money is going to these college scholarship programs in Michigan than to actual cash assistance for needy families. Wow. Is that because there are just fewer families that need that help? No. So so nationally poverty has slightly declined in the last couple of years since the recession when it spiked. But the poverty rate is just about as high as it was back in nineteen Ninety-six. When we overhauled welfare around thirteen percent of Americans live below the poverty line. And that's about twenty four thousand dollars a year for a family of four. The other startling thing that I found in my reporting is that nationally very few families who are poor receive cash assistance. In fact, there are more avid postage stamp collectors than there are people who get cash welfare in the in the in the country nationally, just twenty three out of every one hundred families who live at or below the poverty line gets cash assistance in more than a dozen stay. As the decline is even more pronounced less than ten out of every hundred. Poor families gets cash assistance and what's behind that decline. So part of it is the time limits. You're just not allowed to receive assistance for as long even if you are still struggling with poverty. It's also just a harder program to navigate. Now, the application process is more difficult and more time consuming. There are these work requirements that can be hard to meet. So for families who don't have a lot of resources that might just discourage them from even applying in your reporting, what did you find in terms of what this actually means for families who are out there struggling to get by and could use that cash assistance? Yeah. So I've talked to people who sell their blood plasma to get by. They're also just the everyday tough choices that families face. I talked to one mom who on a given day might be grappling with whether to buy toilet paper or cough syrup for her kids because she just did not have enough money to buy both. So the hard question what is being done, if anything about this. So there is a welfare reform Bill that has been introduced in the house that would put more oversight on how states spend their money. And in the hearings leading up to the Bill, a member of congress actually pointed to things that we had revealed in our reporting like these college financial aid programs that we're getting ten if money that was going to higher income families. They pointed to that as one of the problems with how the program works. These days, the Bill had been expected to come to the floor this month. But in the run-up to the midterm elections, it looks like welfare is just too hot button topic to touch right now. So we'll have to see. All right, Christy Clark host of our documentary podcast, the uncertain our Krissy. Thanks so much. Thanks for having me. And you could see our updates to how your state spends welfare money at marketplace, dot org. Coming up for the first time, children with disabilities are entitled to more than just the bare minimum.

When you think about buying this week's groceries, chances are Amazon, isn't your go to destination? At least not yet, but that doesn't mean food isn't selling on the site. Nisha novelty food products are increasingly popular on Amazon, which has kind of turned it into a laboratory for testing new food products. Vanessa Wong as written about this. She's the deputy business editor for BuzzFeed news. I asked her, I some examples. Some of their bestselling products include like protein powder and like weird chocolate covered almonds that you've never heard of and strange, like limited time or promotional offerings from some of the bigger food manufacturers. So like one of the big themes this summer, you might know this a lot like Jurassic World Food being watched on Amazon, which includes like a twenty five dollar box of Kellogg's. Frosted flakes that comes with a digital screen loaded with behind the scenes footage of the film. Film which you can only get from a box of cereal on Amazon. You know, twenty five dollars sounds pretty cheap. That's true. You know, it's interesting. I was wondering like who actually buys this stuff, and I found this guy who bought the drastic world, frosted flakes and admitted that like in no sense was it worth twenty five bucks? He could have bought the cereal and like gone to see the movie for less than that. Why are they putting some things on Amazon that you wouldn't find say in a grocery store, there are a couple of reasons. It's kind of like a lower risk environment. So at traditional grocery stores, they actually charge manufacturers fee to have their products on display. And so there's that, you know, there are a lot of kind of logistical complications and supply chain things that get in the way of launching a new product. And when you go an Amazon, you kind of have a lot more control over the situation in terms of like how many you sell, how many produce how it's marketed. The thing that is a little. Complicate about Amazon is that Amazon obviously has a lot of control over like algorithms and like where your things show up, which obviously has a lot of impact on whether or not consumers see them and buy them. And how does this fit into Amazon's overall strategy? I mean, obviously, with the purchase of whole foods, it's a bigger player in the grocery space. Is this part of its larger effort to take over? You know, when it comes to Amazon's strategy who can really say at this point, they are like all over the place, but in terms of their food strategy, obviously they're trying to beef up like what types of offerings they have for customers. And one of the ways to like differentiate themselves from brick and mortar grocery is to like, have a different product assortment. So you know, by getting food startups launch, they're kind of like novel and novelty snacks and big manufacturers to kind of like tryout promotional items and other things kind of like brings customers to your sites in. Talking about food, right. Well, how long do you think before we might get there where people go to Amazon for their regular groceries, not just their Jurassic world, frosted flakes I think we're a long ways from their e commerce has had a lot more success in other industries like electronics, apparel, things that ship. Well, groceries is complicated. I mean, aside from like snacks and kind of other dry goods that are temperature sensitive at cetera. It's really hard to get people like, you know, regular food that they can cook that day. The market share of like ecommerce and food is tiny. It's like less than five percent. Still the nessa Wong is deputy business editor for BuzzFeed news. Thanks, thanks so much. At last count more than six and a half million public school children receive special education services, how schools educate those children is governed under a federal law that covers thirteen disabilities. A lawsuit about that law went all the way to the US supreme court last year. The court's ruling changes. What kinds of services schools and districts are legally obligated to provide? Marketplace's Lizzie O'Leary went to find out what that means for the country's largest school district New York City. I hate it. I'm listening Heinsohn picking in a bright orange shirt eight year Old Aden's ready to show off what he's learning in third grade. French, his mom Alana Philip remembers meeting his French teacher. I said French, he studied French because in pre k. Aden was diagnosed with a subtype of autism. One thing that really comes out clearly is it seems as though this thing is going to take a lot of money, there was the occupational therapist. So Aden could learn to hold a pencil. The reading program at one hundred fifty bucks a session and a private neuro psych evaluate and that costs forty five hundred dollars out of pocket in New York City within sixty days of requesting an evaluation. Parents, teachers and other school staff are supposed to hash out an implement a student's individualized education program or IEP under federal law. It's the document that lays out exactly what services a student with disabilities gets. Here's Alana. Philip again, what I had to really fight full was one to one tutoring, an extra support as we know not. All schools have the same resources that's Laurie pod Vesper. She's an advocate at include NYC a nonprofit that helps students with disabilities access services. She says school, sometimes make recommendations based on what they can give, not necessarily what students need in the past New York students with disabilities were often taught separately in their own classes. But then in two thousand ten, they changed the funding formula. Now the district give schools more money if they keep kids with disabilities in mainstream classrooms. The idea being that if you educate students with disabilities alongside their peers, they'll do better academically and socially, but it's just that enough again, Laurie pod Vesper who's a proponent for these kinds of classrooms? My gut reaction is no. There's still huge achievement gap between students with disabilities in New York City. In general education students, New York City schools spent three point, seven billion dollars on classroom instruction. For special education students last year about thirty percent of such spending and they're doing better at getting students classroom services than ever before. But still one in four kids don't get the full services. They're legally entitled to two families. Recently sued the district in a statement, the New York City department of education says they ensure students with disabilities have access to education in quote, the least restrictive environment, and they say they try to resolve concerns as quickly as possible nationwide. A lot of families have sued Jack Robinson Representative, Colorado family whose case went to the supreme court. You have this inherent tension between what the parents want and believe is necessary for their child to succeed. And you know, with the school district is is willing to do alerts financially or just conceptually the supreme court ruled unanimously that just access to education is not enough chief Justice. John Roberts wrote, schools need to offer. Services. So students quote, make progress appropriate in light of the child circumstances. But the first time children with disabilities are entitled to more than just the bare minimum, the federal law, which gives students with disabilities rights to an education also promises funding to cover forty percent of extra special education costs today, only fourteen percent of those funds have come through leaving it up to states and districts to figure out how and what they can pay for since the supreme court ruling the federal education department released guidance to schools clarifying their increased duties. What we don't know yet is how that will play out for students like Aden or anyone else with a disability since divided by ten by ten. Correct? Good boy, high five for now, it likely still means a lot of hard work in New York. I'm Lizzie O'Leary for marketplace. You can check out a marketplace, special report on the economics of disability.

And this final note, the new York, Daily News lost half of its newsroom staff today, publisher trunk Inc, which also owns the Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun among others bought the tabloid last year for just a dollar plus the outstanding debt in a note sent to employees. The company said efforts. So far to stem revenue losses have not gone far enough. The cuts include the paper's editor in chief Jim rich who tweeted, and I quote, if you hate democracy and think local government should operate unchecked and in the dark, then today is a good day for you.
