'Car Coach' Lauren Fix on the Impact of a Potential Rail Strike
"The car coach, Lauren fix. Welcome back to America first. Well, thanks for having me. Lots going on and I'm really, really excited. I was able to get you some safe breaks put on your vehicle. 'cause those drum brakes. Yeah, a little bit spongy. And when it's raining, not so exciting. So I've got disc brakes all round. There is my baby, there is my 66 Mustang. I've got the 2020 as one, a 2020 as well for the everyday stuff. And the new steering wheel, thank you for the recommendations and your contact. Last thing, and I'm not going to touch it, some period correct rims. And then maybe some AC, I might put some AC in because it gets a little hot and sticky here in the swamp. All right. Enough about me and my pony, although I do need people to go to my website and tell me a name. I need a name and not Sally. Okay, I'm not doing the stupid Mustang Sally. I need a female name, go to said gorka dot com and send me a little message that said gorka dot com. All right, you've been sending me some fascinating stuff. First things first, it's not cars. Right now he's allegedly negotiating. But what is the impact going to be if we have a rail strike Lauren in America? Oh, it's going to be huge. Now I know everyone's talking about what you're literally looking at billions of dollars of losses. Because everything goes cars get transported from the manufacturing plant. To the sub area where it then goes to your dealer. So that means good luck getting cars. We can't get them now. That means all the components, tires, metal, just think of everything that you need gets from point a to point B from the West Coast to the east coast, usually by rail, then it's transported to a diesel powered rig and then from there to the final destination in the last mile to your store or to wherever you're going. And that includes like Amazon packages, U.S. Postal Service, FedEx. That new planes, but they also use rail. And without rail, we're in a lot of trouble. And we've been using it for years, plus passengers, Amtrak, which is owned by the government as well. They can't seem to organize the postal service or Amtrak. But the fact is without diesel and there's a shortage of diesel and without the railroad system we have a supply chain that nightmare.

"u. s postal service" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"Adding a 112 new automated sorting machines and hiring 40,000 additional workers. And this is stuff that the post office didn't have last year. The annex facilities to handle the overflow are actually particularly interesting. They're just big empty warehouse spaces at this point. And they're kind of going to grow into them and figure out what to do with them. I toured one of these outside of Pittsburgh. It's an industrial park that used to house vitamin distributor. And it was just three massive rooms two of them which were empty and one which had this long sorting machine running. So they were getting ready for what was going to come in the peak season. And another existing facility that's been there for years, they had replaced the manual package sorting operation with a large about 200 foot long, small package sorting machine that sourced up to 90,000 pieces per day, which is much more efficient than having workers sort these packages, the same 200 destinations. Paul, isn't it normal to beef up resources ahead of the holiday season, it is peak shipping time after all, what's different here? So there's a lot going on in the post office last year. They were handling millions of mail in ballots for a presidential election. There was the pandemic, which meant thousands of workers were unavailable for long periods of time, and also the postmaster general joined in June. Typically a lot of the planning for peak holiday season that has done shortly after the holiday season ends in January February. So this year shortly after last year's holiday season and they kind of did their autopsy and they in January February figured out what their call they forecast shipping forecast would be and they worked year round to try to plan around that. How did the efforts that the U.S. Postal Service is making compared to what competitors are doing like FedEx and UPS here? So for all carriers, shipping companies, the name of the game is capacity, and to prepare for peak season, you kind of have to think about the Goldilocks fairytale. You could either have too much capacity, not enough capacity or just right in out capacity. And getting the exact right amount capacity is difficult and there's also pitfalls having too much or too little. The postal service it seems like they're kind of leaning toward having too much. They're really just making sure that they have a lot of space, a lot of machines and enough workers to handle what they're expecting for the holiday season. So during my tour, I actually got to sit down with the joy and he told me look they're not trying to beat the FedEx of the world. They're just trying to keep up. Well look, I don't want to conquer the world. I just want to fill my I want to fill up my carrier's bags. I get my trucks as full as we can get them. Yeah. And I want to deliver mail along with packages. And that's probably pretty realistic view. If you hear what he says he's talking about, you know, having good utilization of their trucks. So they want them full. And they want to deliver the mail and packages. And that's the vision going forward. So Paul, we've got a lot of people listening here who may be depending on packages arriving in the mail in time for the holidays. What should they know about this year? Well, as far as the postal service goes, I think the key thing to know is that this year is going to be different than last year. This year, they say with the moves they can handle 50.1 million packages a day, which is a 35% increase from last year, which is a huge increase in this world. So it's hard to imagine that things will be worse than last year, but it is still the peak holiday season. And if you are ordering packages from any merchant from any online retailer, whether they send it with FedEx UPS or the postal service or any other regional carrier, it's still prudent to order early. It's still prudent to ship out packages yourselves early. But I think the key thing to know is that this year is different than last year. And it's very hard to imagine that it's going to be worse. DeJoy made waves when he was appointed last year for suggesting major cuts to the U.S. Postal Service while people were depending on it for shipping and for absentee voting. How did this year's changes fit into his overall plan for the postal service going forward? So the joy is trying to pivot the postal service more toward the package business. His ten year plan unveiled in March, plans to support tens of billions of dollars into capital spending in order to do that. At the same time, there's other two things that are generating some concern, which is slower delivery times for some first class mail and higher rates. They need to hire rates to pay for a lot of these changes and the slower first class mail is for a small subset of mail that's going longer distance, but they're changing the service standards because they weren't meeting them before. I mean, there is concern from people who are worried that their medication, their bills and more won't arrive as fast as possible. But that's a tradeoff that the post office is making. And we'll see how that plays out of a long haul. Ultimately, he wants to convince people that the postal service is a viable option to deliver packages, especially during a peak periods. Here's what he told me. Practice too inefficiencies in the postal service. The inefficiency of us running bad operations. I want to root that out. That's going away. And as the inefficiency of mission, the fact that we have to go to every address every day. One piece, so a 5 feet whatever it is. Then we have to have a support structure to do that. So that I'm signing up for that we want to do. So when you hear about them talk the vision, he also talks about he's still very committed to delivering to 161 million addresses every day. He still is very committed to a day a week, mail delivery. 7 days, in some cases for packages, which are guardrails that other postmaster generals have suggested removing and he's really sticking to those long held beliefs for the post office. It's going to be difficult. The post office is a very old, very large, very bureaucratic organization. And there's also a lot of pushback from outside constituents from mailers from Congress. How likely he is to succeed is up in the air. But he does have a plan and he is sticking to it and we will see how likely it is to succeed and how likely it is that the post office will be here ten years from now. That's Wall Street Journal reporter Paul Zio bro, he reports on freight and transportation Paul, thanks so much for joining me today. No problem. Thanks so much..

"So, with this app on your phone, you can take a look at all your incoming mail. You contract your packages, uh, any anywhere on your phone or your tablets free. And so that would be the first thing is for you to download that app. And what's also nice about it is like Let's say you get a whole bunch of junk mail If you don't want them to deliver it. You can just say xxx and don't give me that. And then it won't be delivered to your mailbox. So you're not sorting through all this garbage all the time. You know, I'm talking about good. Okay, so The next thing is, it's really hard to to put a sensor on that mailbox in the next hour of the show. Bring. I'm gonna talk about a new sensor that the ring doorbell folks have come out for your mailbox, but it only works within 15 ft. So a half a mile is 26 of roughly 2600 ft away. So that little mailbox sensor is never gonna work for you. All right. So instead of a mailbox sensor Let's put a motion alert. So any time motion is detected around the mailbox that you would get an automatic chime in your house. Right. Okay, so and the system is like $100. It's a driveway, Emotion alert. But what's nice is that it works on wireless, and it works up to a mile away. And you know, there's there's ah, three or four other people that have mailboxes and beside mine.

And so their water protected, and so the whole idea is that when motion is detected in a specific spot That you could get a text message. Okay is this driveway alert system just isn't gonna work for you because it's a communal mailbox. And so that's not gonna happen, because anytime somebody comes up to get their mail, your house is gonna chime and you're gonna run out to get the mail only to find out that it's the neighbor of you never really liked anyway.

"A whistling sound as it flew over my head. Yeah yeah 'cause 'cause. I know when i bought the album as like oh such great heights. District sleeps alone tonight and when we get to songs like this. That are not those other songs. I'd be like okay. Well i mean. I'll listen to him but i'm waiting for the next the next fun song and i never really paid attention to expected today again with like the storytelling here. Can you may case the grounds from the cascades puget sound and it was just the most poetic option to very very specifically call out the seattle scene the entire width of washington. Fuck all of us. Yeah it's such a dark song it really is but but it feels very honest again. You know it's it's impressive. it's it's again. I did not get this at all. When i was a kid. But like having spent the three years that i spent working in san francisco and living in the bay area. I lived in the bay area for a long time. The three years. I spent working in san francisco and kind of being around. The sort of big city. Thing makes me appreciate this a lot more. Because it's just like yeah. No they'll i am trapped here. I am here as a prisoner. Connect to this song way. Way way way. More than i had any capacity to do all right ready to move onto brand new colony so as a young. This was my favorite based on that ship. Tune intro alone. I would sit there and just restart. The intro and over land planned ram program plan-plan lamb. I don't know for whatever reason it was like. Wow this is the coolest thing ever. I don't know why that hit me so hard as a kid. Teenagers really. This is awesome but from for me. This one like lyrically is just like a metaphorical declaration of love. Right like you know. It's just a grand gesture turned into a song. Yeah and feel like the music supports it. Very well Yeah like for me. Another idealistic song were. Ben longs to break away and start a new life with someone that he loves and that new world will be a different and safe than than before. So i mean i. I don't have a lot to say about it. i mean i've always enjoyed this one You know like when they get to the chorus the. I wanna take you far from this nixon this town and kiss you on the mouth and we'll cut our bodies free. Yeah that it's just a good song. The very very relatable lyrics to anybody. Who has it ever ever been a young nerd with that. You know it's it's a. It's a really really fun. all right. Well then the next one is the last one natural anthem and for me. My copy of the cd like grand or jacked up a right here for this. It would start out the song and it wouldn't be able to finish it so really. The song didn't really exist for me for a very long time. And i think that's actually the same for me because it's the only one of the songs that i can't necessarily conjure the sound of in my mind and i think it's because they had ripped from dorsey d into toots probably yeah So back in it so in my listing of ranking of songs the song just didn't exist but now that i have the you know i have an a good copy of it. This is my least favorite song of the album cover. And you you really teed that up and that different way than i thought was destroyed your expectations on god. I've been subverted. So i don't know it's i probably just need to. I need to probably this song is like you know seven or eight years behind all the other songs in my how many times i've listened to them so maybe i need to kind of just do it on repeat for a couple years straight. So there's a number things about this this one that make it a little bit of a harrier beast than the rest of the songs on the record. This is some of which i i went through but like it's very discordant like the baseline is is very minor but a lot of the A lot of the higher parts kind of flirt going minor and major. But they're doing it at the same time. it's got the sort of uncomfortable overlap. It's actually when one of the reasons that i might recycled air as much is because there's an element of the beat that is going minor when the song is major is sort of like uncomfortable discordance. That makes me not like that one as much and there's a lot of it here but they lean into it way harder in this last track and again. I didn't enjoy it so much when i was younger. But there's some really cool drum texture work lately because realistically song is like a four minute intro and then two verses and over right yeah so i think that that i think for me my biggest problems. It's four minutes of instrumental. And i've kind of a. I've realized that. I got into this album because of ben gilbert and so his he's not in this for song for four minutes and then when he gets to it he just he's talking about who's going to write me a song or right someone a song and it just kind of quick over and over with kind of thing so i don't know i think that that's the things that i jumped out at me as being my problems with it too and i felt very similarly until like when when i was younger with this like again i was with you. I hadn't heard this one nearly as much as the rest the album but it's important the intervening years ahead. Heard it and she's been here. I love that it ends the album on this sort of like unhinged slightly dark note. Yes because that is one of my notes is like i. Don't i don't know if i would pick a different song to be the i wouldn't move this dishonor into different place on the album I think this is where it needs to be. Yeah sure but Yeah the there's some really cool Drum work really good drum editing. In a lot of interesting textures. There really aren't any harmonic. Decisions in the song. That i would make in a song. I was writing myself. Put a joy. It's weirder than i would like to go like i. It's a little more discordant than than i would like to be another way to look at it. Is that like they could have leaned harder into it. It rests in this weird middle place. Where like it's almost pleasant but it's almost uncomfortable. And i suppose that's part of what makes it fairly effective is an album under because you sit there and be like. How do i actually feel about this. Because the instruments are actually properly della graphing to you how you should feel about which is what happens in muslim. Pop- entered songs is like. Oh well they've dropped the minor chord here. And i feel sad here. It's like everything is very confused. it's chaotic and maybe that's what they would like us to the end. The album on is like maybe everything isn't black and white. But i love that hatch. All right well loser. The ten songs that were on the the standard version of the album that came out in two thousand three There are there was two dozen thirteen.

We listened to this album tons ten plus years ago. And i haven't listened to it a whole lot. In the meantime maybe to adhere song occasional but occasionally but as. I was listening in preparation for this. That's what struck me. The most is that. This was one of my favorites. When i was when i was a young. And now i see it as being a little more like cheesy and tongue-in-cheek out necessarily too bad way. It's still charming in. Its own way but like the whole like the line. I kissed you. Style clark gable would have admired called thought it classic like that. Oh that's so cool. Sixteen over here a dangerous to god. That was literally my life ago and it feels a lot different listening to that lyric now. Can you didn't know didn't know you had no idea. One of the thing. I really i really liked is like right at the beginning. It's the. I'm waiting for a Crosstown train on the london underground when it struck me and i always thought that line is really great. Because obviously he's talking about the. The idea struck him but the way the sentences setup it betrays the trend the train struck. You always thought that was a good well david and like the idea. The idea hit me like like a train or like a. Yeah like a train. It goes like three different ways. It's again very effective. Songwriting and also just like you know when you have creative writing classes as you're going through school and they talk about like you know it's really good to open up with a hook sentence. Yeah there's one there's one way what did you talking about now. Going to listen to all songs does another train show up. Yeah now i. It's one of the more subtle pardons that i've ever heard in the lyric like he gets away with it. Yes that one of those ones where you grow. And you're just like they spent and and back to the film references and stuff. He does a pretty accurate. Like rep. none. There's not a lot of times or you hear like a you people talking about. Oh yeah i. I got the lighting right. Because i had a friends do was my stand in. Yeah agrees the lens and frame the shot. And the marker snap trade lately a of the right lingo very goal again. Very immersive i. It puts you there. There were at the. I'm gonna end up saying that every song but it's true the word for this episode is immersive. Yup well you wanna a perhaps take a look at the next one. We will become silhouettes. This is the third single as cheesy as it is. I think after all this time this one is my favorite. It's definitely up there for me. Yeah it feels more relevant today than it than it ever has. That was one of my notes to of like this. The song hits a little closer to home in the year. Twenty twenty. i mean. There's some some some cooler the we we will become silhouettes winner. Bodies finally go. Because that's what happens in a nuclear blast you'd you become a silhouette on the wall. There are outside. We'll make ourselves divided an alarming rate. It it was an interesting way to like be because realistically that it is kind of the whole thing is describing being immolated in a nuclear blast. Right but yeah. It's again with the scenes that the cupboard with cans of food filtered water and pictures of you yes said. I'm not coming out until this all over and golly the seventeen years ahead but like again. This song just hits different today. Yeah there's just so many good little lines in there and everything is so the weights delivered is so happy. It's such a such a good sound again. It's it's yes. It's very dark but very happy song which count me right in right. I'll always one hundred percent of the time. Count me in for that. It's one of the things you can't help but sing along to if you know the words but this is i think one of the best lake storytelling songs on the record. I think it's the ones the most effective at that. It's him him doing what he does. And this is the best example of it really fun song though like simply a really effective all right. Let's move onto. This place is a prison so this one has like from near the bottom of my list. When i was sixteen to near the top of my list. Now okay interesting. It is at the top but it's but but it's near the top. I liked the fact that like the drumbeat for like the first half of the song is just like crappy industrial. Sounds sort of like Swing time this kind of six eight time. It's just such an interesting vibe in the when when they bring the drum kit for the backup. It's just wild. But but i think the main reason that i that i enjoy it more as an adult is probably because i was way too young to understand much of the implement the implications eric's again the storytelling here is fantastic. I think seattle is a prison. I'm stuck in this scene and it's terrible definitely ten years ago fifty seventeen years ago when when this first came out it was my least favorite song and so so it's very similar and listening to it again and i listen to or watch the live performance that just put out a few a couple of weeks ago That helped me come around on it and kind of knowing that this kind of trying to pay attention to the lyrics of its. It seems like know it's the rockstar lifestyle. There's no one you can trust. There's drug and alcohol abuse and then in the end he's asking for a drink so it's like kind of giving into it. Yeah as the drum start to pick up the they take to get a drink in this place. But i mean there are lines that i just didn't get because of such a such a sheltered child like data inhaling thrills through twenty dollar bills yeah i just didn't made.

The postal services dead long live the postal service. It's time i to go down a rabbit hole about the music theory. That makes this album work. For the benefit of any new listeners. I'll be including my primer on basic music theory to provide some context for my ramblings. If you've already heard it or already know some music theory you can skip ahead about six minutes. So let's talk about basic music theory. Music is made up of notes notes have rhythm and pitch pitch is a measure of how high or low sound is and rhythm is a measure of the notes duration and spacing relative to other note. So let's start with rhythm. There are long notes in short notes. An example of a long note is a whole note for a shorter note would be a half note As notes get shorter their fraction names get higher. So you also have quarter notes. Eighth notes sixteenth notes. And so now we need to talk about time signatures time signature. A way to communicate how you count the rhythm of a song. It is written as a fraction where the top number indicates the number of beats in a measure and the bottom number indicates. What kind of note defines a beat. The most common time signature is for four which means one measure of music is made up of four quarter notes. One two three four four is so pervasive in music. Didn't some classical music and sometimes jazz. It is simply referred to as common time another common time. Signature is three four made up of three quarter notes to berry and also we have six eight made up of six eighth notes one-two-three five six one. Two three four five six. These three are far and away the most common signatures modern music and most songs don't step too far out of these norms however there are still plenty of songs that do adventurous things with their time signatures. So it's good to understand how they work. In most cases you should assume song is in four four unless specified otherwise moving on now to pitch scientifically pitches measured in hertz hurts literally means cycles per second so if an instrument is producing a pitch of one hundred ten hurts so that means the pitch producing part of the instrument such as a string. Guitar is vibrating. One hundred ten times in a second musically pitches measured in notes. Each note has a letter name and the musical alphabet goes from g and then starts over so we could play a abcd efg a the as at either end of this run have a similar sound but are not the exact same nope So what gives these two nodes are what is known as an octave apart. Opt for eight notes. The higher of two notes one octave apart has a frequency twice as high as the lower note in the case of the previous example the lower a has a frequency of one hundred and ten hurts and the higher a as a frequency of two hundred twenty hertz and the next day up from that has a frequency of four hundred and forty hertz and so on in most western music and activists divided up into twelve equal steps known as semi tones or half steps when it comes to note names. There are three main kinds of notes. Natural flat and sharp. An example of a natural note would be a natural. A flat note is one semi tone lower than it's not name so the difference between a natural and a flat would sound like this A sharp note is one semi tone higher than it's not name. So here's the difference between a natural and in a sharp natural notes are sort of the default and unless i say sharper fled. You should assume the note is natural next. We have to talk about scales which are a collection of seven notes selected from the twelve semi tones. I mentioned earlier. These notes repeat in each octave and form the musical vocabulary of a given song. A very common scale is a major scale. Which has a happy sound You can change the distance between the notes in the scale to create a different mood or tone. For example you have the minor scale which has made three notes from the major scale flat and provides more of a sad sound. You're the difference songs are built from these scales into melodies and harmonies melodies notes. That go one after another in a specific order and are usually the most memorable parts of song whereas harmonies are notes. That happened at the same time and often form the background of the song. Nearly done now we will cover. Cords accord is a type of harmony typically consisting of at least three notes from the scale of a song each note. Two notes. Away from each other for instance. A secord uses a c. Skips the d. uses an e skips the f. and uses the jeep. There you go see e g. c. Major chord like scales. Chords can have different tonality. Such as major happy and minor sad major chords are also considered sort of a default so unless specified assume gorgeous. major meaning. See major gordon will typically be referred to simply as secord last. We have the concept of keys. Which i find is rarely explained. Well even though it's a fairly simple thing to explain a key is a collection of cords made from the notes in a scale with the same name so a c major scale Offers the chords. C d minor minor a minor and be diminished and then repeats at the and those are all chords that are built from the notes in the scale those chords make up your key of c all right. That's enough of that musically. The postal service was a bizarre idea. Let's take an indie pop songwriter. Param with the dj 'electronic music producer. And see what happens. It's not the first time. A collaboration like this has happened. But i haven't really heard this particular combination of flavors before or since so let's get into it..
