There's the presence of the threats that people themselves might present infrastructure changes so habitats often get fragmented. There's vehicles now that they have to watch out for there's novel predators things like domestic dogs and cats And these are all things that are kind of these new challenges and so she wondered are there aspects of screw behavior their personalities that have made them so adaptable some of the behavioral things that we study when we catch the squirrels. We are measuring a number of different behavioral traits. What we call basically animal personality traits. And they're not this kind of anthropomorphized version of personality that we like to ascribe to our pets per se but more focused on things like boldness activity levels exploratory.

Okay but what if you arrive hyme with no range and then you need to go out and our light and you need to drive the full four hundred kilometers. What do you do. I was like well. You can't do that at home like it's very simple equation. You can't get a full charge in an hour at home. You can do it on a public housing station. But that situation almost never manifest self does kind of like a moot question but if you go. I'm we had no charge and you wanted to go to do an ice cream run ten pm.

"Welcome. Let's dive stride on. Why should we care about electric vehicles. Yeah i think that's a really interesting question nick. When you told me that you were gonna ask this question. The first word that came into mind was care. It's like why do we care about a vase and to be honest. My first reaction was i. Guess we don't really care like most people don't shouldn't care about a vase but it's interesting because i think people will become excited about as i feel like that's almost different to carrying. It's almost like when you tell someone that i've been doing something wrong. During tie lives their first reaction is to climb popping guy. You don't know what you're talking about. And so i certainly when i started my career and i said in the space and i went out to people and say you should not be driving as fuel guzzlers. You should be driving a vase because it's good for the planet and hero. All of the reasons why you should switch. I instantly got that shutdown sort of face. And so i tended into focus more on the positives and i basically said to them hey. Abc are actually really exciting. Because you can really loved driving them and so the question is why you should care about. A vase is pretty similar to why people care about anything which is doesn't bring a more positive experience to the every day lives. And that's where away stott dave. As now for example we run a pretty large electrical contracting business now and a lot of our partners as well as employees drive around everyday events out of the last time. You drive a van or alex drive event. But they're not the most luxurious vehicles in the welsh. But when you spend the vast majority of your timing event that is your workplace bosses of the same trucks of this. I'm it easier workplace so you tend to get excited when that everyday experience gets elevated to something that you thought was always out of fuel rich because when you get into a forty thousand dollar electric vehicles experience that you would have with a luxury vehicle. Which is that it silent. It's comfortable and the changes nonexistent. So for everyday people who getting to one of these vehicles and it drives the same one hundred thousand one hundred and fifty thousand dollars vehicle. It elevates your everyday experience to a point where you go. Wow this really good. And that's what gets me really excited about a vase is because it brings that level of everyday come fish inexperienced people just anybody when i am going to a vehicle and i think that's why people should care about a vase because it elevates the everyday driving experience the second reason i should care is because it allows you to do something good for the planet without having to pay costs for us. Is that true. Though longtime it's showtime you gonna have to pay more likely though technologies with a vase coming coming downing price and being kind of I would say cheaper than petrol. Causing the long-term you're able to do something for the environment without having to sacrifice anything.

Tell us what you want to know what you think about senator. Kirsten cinema call us at six one. Seven three five three zero six eight three. That's for tomorrow's show today. We are talking about the rapidly changing present and future of electric vehicles around the world. I'm joined today by jeremy mahalick. He's professor of mechanical engineering and public policy at carnegie mellon university director of the university's vehicle electrification group. He's with us from pittsburgh and professor mahalick before the break you talked about some of the concerns that come along with mass adoption of electric vehicles will explore more about infrastructure. You talked about Strengths and vulnerabilities in the grid for example and we are living in an age. Where cyber is part of a of any question regarding technology we just not that long ago saw that ransomware attack on the colonial pipeline not trinity but a ransomware attack on a on a major utility. So with that in mind. Carol called us from louisville kentucky and had this to say it just seems to me that it could be easy for someone who really wants to do bad things to hack into electrical grid and if our electrical grids into the nobody's car will work. Jeremy mahalick not just the grid the cars themselves. I mean you heard. Darren palmer earlier saying that the f- the ford electric ford f. One fifty access the cloud to get all this information about its environment how much it's hauling where the local charging stations are etc. I mean our the cars ever more sort of almost cyber-security threats or of another area vulnerability for cyber. Yes they certainly can be Not sure that the electric part is the key reason. It's more that there's so much information and computing and communication on the cars right now that That there can be but there are things that if you wanted to destroy somebody's battery I have a colleague who's looked at this issue In you could get into the car you could program the car to charge and discharge in charge and discharge a whole bunch of times and wear down the battery. I don't know why do you want to do that. But i mean if he was if there was a malicious attack There could be some polander abilities their unique to electric vehicles. Okay well i if it seems like we're living in a world right now where there's always a question regarding cyber so i had to ask it here as well but so let's look more broadly at the entire sort of ecosystem if i can put it that way that exists to support current automobiles would need to exist to support mass adoption of electric vehicles. Now we spoke with brad sours. He's president of jim butler auto group and he sells cars and trucks. He's a dealer from eleven. Different manufacturers at seven different dealerships across the state of missouri and his dealership is the largest seller of vehicles in the state of missouri. About a thousand vehicles. He sells every month and brad sourse told us. He is preparing for the shift to electric vehicles in the end this year. August august almost a half a million dollars. Then chart high-speed chargers Training to our people th- rules for the sheriff's department between seven different locations that are there and he's investing in staff as well. They're stepping up to take on new challenges. But brad sour says there's a great deal of uncertainty. That remains what i feel. Is that my team as excited. But they're really not sure how it's going to go. And so they're they're ramping themselves up they look at it. They'll test drive and they'll be out in a vehicle and you know the people that have signed up to be. Our specials are excited about the technology. They see that future and brad told us though he is himself a little worried about that future. I'm driven by the consumer. So if in fact infrastructures gets put in place. Gm us Roddy kia continues to make investments into this and provides the product for me to sell and the consumer demand is there. It'll be very And until i see all of that. I'm the guy with the glass half empty so i say myself big investments. What if infrastructure doesn't get there. What if manufacturers decide okay. We tried but consumer doesn't want the product. Those are the things that i always worry about stress about. That's brad sours president of jim butler auto group in missouri. Jeremy mahala respond to what you hear brad saying there. What do you think. I think brad making is making a lot of sense. There is a lot of uncertainty In the future Now dealers are really important. Part a really important part of this equation because You know there are. How often is it that people go to the dealership to buy one car and then leaving with different car it matters what dealers A stock can put an inventory. It also matters whether they have the process to make sure that those vehicles are charged. So i would recommend if you're thinking about buying an electric vehicle. Call the dealer ahead of time. Let them know what vehicle you wanna test drive. So they can make sure they actually charge it. I mean you think about the differences in logistics at the at the dealership. Is you take the vehicle on a test drive years park it back in the parking lot but if it's an electric may wanna have somebody who brings it back around in mixture. It's fully charged before the next test driver and so a lot of dealerships. Aren't doing that. You show up to test drive your electric vehicle and it's actually not charge so there are those kinds of things that are were dealerships will have a big impact on the public as well as dealerships responding to what the public's demand is so when we we've been i've been using this word infrastructure the whole hour let's define it specifically for electric vehicles and the passenger electric vehicles in the united states. What kind of infrastructure do we need to have. Further developed specifically yes so the big focused for example and biden a jobs plan. American jobs plan is on a public charging infrastructure. Now let me put that in context. I think that earlier. In the hour darren palmer mentioned that most electric vehicle charging happens at home in your garage. Something like this and so the where you actually need. The public charging infrastructure is in two places one. When you're taking a really long trip along maybe the interstates cross country that sort of thing and you need to be able to reliably find a place to charge And you also want to make sure that when you find that place to charge you don't have to queue up for you know an hour waiting for or something like that. The supply and demand has to match and then The other big thing is in these early adopters. These are people who have off street parking and a place to install charger. And maybe they're not renters. They're owners so they have the authority to install that charger so that early adoptions happening more easily in that sense because the people who are adopting have all of that infrastructure authority when we try to get to like the second fifty percent of vehicles That's going to bring up a whole bunch of new challenges that the house that i lived in Before i where i live now didn't have off street parking and i had an electric vehicle for research and that man if i was lucky enough to get the spot right in front of my house than i had to run an extension cord across the sidewalk and up a flight and a half stairs..

"Example. Almost one point eight million. Ev were registered in the united states. Three times as many as in thousand sixteen just four years earlier however the. Us is a slow adopter. Compared to europe and china which together account for more than seventy percent of all electric vehicles in the world so this is a global market with global opportunities global competition. Don't just represent a sea change in mobility. They could also be a societal game changer. So what possibilities and what. Obstacles are ahead for electric vehicles here in the united states. That's what we're gonna be talking about today. And let me tell you. Based on the feedback we've gotten from listeners. Folks wanna know about electric vehicles so let's start with one of the oldest and most iconic automakers here in the united states ford darren palmer is the head of battery vehicles at ford and as i mentioned the f one fifty. They've also got an electric version of the mustang. As well palmer welcome to you. Thank you for the opportunity to talk. And darren joins us today from dearborn michigan. Of course so first of all. Let's just talk a little bit about the electric ford f. one fifty. Tell me a little bit more about this truck because quite frankly the idea of of an electric f one fifty seems to be pretty exciting and can do some kind of fun things as well. Yes it does. Our strategy is that we want every electric vehicle to do things that you could never do before the guests vehicle. we think. That's what's going to tempt. people to move into. Electric vehicles is the heart. I and the head follows. There's many reasons the practical reasons to have to buck. We very interested in the new features and things that they could does so you may have seen from some of the announcements. Not only is it. The fastest and most powerful ephraim phoebe ever it will show ten thousand pounds if there's nothing attached to the back but it will also power your house in the event of a power cut and for three days even up ten eight. And if you take you to a worksite. It will power crew of ten people to work all day long with palo tolls still have the power to get you back home again. Then you charge you at night and you're ready to go the next day. So there's some of the things. I mean by. It does things you could never do the literally a battery that you drive around then right because if you can charge your house and charge a tools at your work site through your car through your truck okay. I'm not gonna just fawn over a consumer product with a with a major corporation. But i will admit that's pretty cool. Okay but about hauling ten thousand pounds now obviously these were working trucks. People need them to be useful. If you're hauling ten thousand pounds. I mean how long the battery charge last. Could you go a couple of hundred miles with your f. One fifty and a tow behind you so the important thing about electric vehicles is that they know where the charges are loaded into the vehicle on an online system even not ready or they're free and many of included in the price of the vehicle as well as such an amount. So the ks that vehicle knows what range it has and he knows what it's towing so these fickle has a weighing scale built-in digital weighing scale. So he knows the load that you put into it and even knows the trailer so you can first of all you select the trying to knows the size and the white and the link and he will. I estimate what that will do to the range. But that really depends on whether you're uphill downhill and different conditions. So what matters is that the victim knows what it's got and he's got a very highly accurate range and so that when you type your journey in it works out to do you have the range to make the journey and also if you don't wear would you stop to charge and in many cases you'll stop for twenty minutes to boost vehicle up and you plug it into the charge. They have plugin shot so he automatically authorize and charge even with the included amount. You get from an account biltong and that's how you use it so unload will affect in different ways in some conditions. If you'll get routines mainly downhill. You have a heavy trailer and it's pushing. The car will read the truck will regenerate it actually increases range as you drive right in other conditions. You going uphill is going to use more rank. The important thing is that the trump knows what will happen. Yeah just based system okay. I'm sorry i'm just going to jump in here. Darren if i could because you're bringing up another issue that we're going to explore with another guess later in the hour that okay so the truck might know where the charging stations are but the charging stations need to be there for a for consumers to use them and so the broader infrastructure to support electric powered vehicles. We'll talk about in a second. But i've only got you for about five or six more minutes and i really want to dive into some of the business decisions. That ford has made around a move towards an electric vehicle fleet. Because it wasn't that long ago a couple years ago where ford announced that it was basically going to globally focus on its bestselling vehicles trucks. Suv's meaning that they were. The company is moving away from sedans and smaller cars. First of all it makes that makes me think we should not be surprised that we're seeing an electric version of the f one fifty because ford focusing on on these more utility an suv vehicles globally. Anyway but what i wanted to ask you about. Is that in january twenty. Eighteen ford announced plans to invest. What seems like a big amount of money. Eleven billion dollars in electric vehicles Which was i. It's quite a lot but compare that to volkswagen which has announced that their they're announce previously. They're going to spend ninety one billion dollars. Developing electric vehicles source. Ford still playing. Catch up here on the global auto market. So we we now. We have now committed to thirty billion dollars okay. By twenty twenty five and we are strategies to electrify out icons and all commercial vehicles so the most popular figures and of course from fifties the most popular vehicle for four decades and transit is the most popular global commercial vehicle. Matt mustang is the most popular sports coupe in the world and explorer is the most sewed ever suv. So those are the ones we're focusing on first. Because they're the segments that customers love that bring in key volume and we're trying to do that at a price that is for our customers so big part of the one fifty launch i believe is that christ point so devaluated offers for both commercial and retail customers. We believe is amazing. We've never seen that type of valuing electric vehicle before well so ford as the other. Major automakers is of course a global company. As well. And.
"vehicle" Discussed on KILF Morning New Podcast
"On twitter at five seventy. Klif this is real news. And information five seventy kale. Klif dot com proposal. In austin that just has scott. Let's clarify the idea of this doesn't make me mad. It's the execution of it because the point here is we're talking about electric vehicles. And amy and i both drive electric cars. And what's going on is that they want to install as this tax for people who drive electric vehicles simply because you drive an electric vehicle now conceptually. It makes sense because when you go buy gasoline you know the price you see. Let's say it's two twenty a gallon. Twenty cents of that is a gas tax from the state And that goes towards fixing rose. I think there's a small twenty four percent goes towards schools. There's also a federal gas tax so part of the money you spend when you get gas goes towards fixing roads so the argument from both republicans and democrats in the texas legislature is well. electric vehicles. drivers aren't paying for the roads right. Because you're not paying for gas them right so now they're trying to come up with this tax however they're trying to make the tax so it would be between two hundred and two hundred fifty dollars a year just for driving the electric vehicle and then plus another one hundred ninety dollars if you drive more than nine thousand miles a year which is going to be a large chunk of people so that could be up to four hundred and what forty dollars. Yeah more than four hundred and forty dollars. Seems like an awful lot of money so here. Here's why this irks me. We'll kick this around. I did the math so if you drive. If you have a fifteen gallon tank you're getting you're paying an extra three bucks in taxes at the pump. Let's the checks out to that per per per fill out okay per fill up. Let's see gas once a week for a year three dollars times fifty two weeks. That's one hundred fifty six dollars. You're paying in taxes on gas but the legislature wants to tax electric vehicle drivers four hundred something dollars and this makes no sense to me whatsoever. Well the thing that worries me about this. I agree with you by the way the thing that worries me is This little note here about or if they drive more than nine thousand miles and of course the other alternative is that they and this has been done or had been tried in other states. Is that okay. We're gonna tax you by the mile rather than buy the gallon of gas tax. Everybody by how much they drive. Hold on second. How you gonna know how much i drive you have to put in. You're gonna put on some some some device that tracks were go when you get your car inspected and grab for registration and all that. If every year you have to check the end goes on record. All that stuff is already on record. Still you know that that I could. I can imagine that you could come with a pretty lawsuit. Claiming that violates your constitutional right to to travel around to actual to actually move around the country because a lot of countries don't have that. But i didn't read. This is a problem and they're supposed to be encouraging electric vehicle. Use right right. That's that's That's kinda the weird dichotomy here. Because you've got governor. Abbot who i've i've been abbots corner through a lot of things in the last couple of years and he's been very hey elon. Musk come build that cyber truck factory right outside the airport. Bring tesla here bring spacex taxes cars and then and then yeah. It's not all of his cars but yes basically. Here's another thing too. It's not just tesla's the ford is coming out with a truck and more of them every the they're all coming out and let me give you another piece of food for thought here. Do it halfway with the hybrid cars right. do you give them a half electric tax. Because they're only paying for half the gatt like does this stop it. just just seem as puffery slip. I it makes sense though. Right because we're driving on the roads amy and we're not paying the taxes by not buying gas but this execution just makes no reminds me when i was being when i was paying property taxes to provide funding for public schools. When my when my kids didn't go to public schools. I understand as part of the being a sex.

"It's larger than every single. Traditional automaker combined so i think that obviously was under priced at the beginning because people don't understand that it was a true leader in the space and that everyone was sort of just a fooling around at the beginning but i mean the ceo gm has made very clear that by twenty thirty she expects you know The vast majority of gm cars to be electric end. The ceo is funny so it sounds like he he likes to store he's foaming at the mouth bullish because he sounds like he may want to splurge by one of these cars but your highest year a similar bias but for a different reason. Which is that. The ceo of ford is shares. My last name. Farley's names jim. Farley no relation. Although perhaps. I'll just crap imply that sort of my uncle be like pretended on on the inside of a ford but mom. Yeah i this is just my opinion. I think you're absolutely right. If you how versus gm have been trading relative to tesla since the beginning of the year if not february really have seen a reversal of that trend. That of course is related to the rotation from grow sox. We've tesla has a huge Multiple out to into a value stocks such as ford and gm which historically have been. You're not really growing business. But now that they're electric vehicles perhaps also so if you want to really take the stage play and say. I don't know it's going to be forward. I don't know if it's going to be you know farley farley. who's gonna win or musk. Who knows about you just want to bet on electric vehicles. Which is you know. it's it's going to happen. I'm sorry to people who don't think it's going to happen. It is You could you could invest in a lithium minors. You can invest in cobalt minors. You can invest in rare earth minors such as neodymium praseodymium which is required to power the The motor of every single electric vehicle including not just lithium batteries but also hydrogen powered batteries. So there's a lot to think of. I mean i follow the tesla stock pretty closely. That has not been trading. Well at all you know if you were a seller of calls you've done well if you've been a buyer puts you've done well and if you'd have the underlying stock it you know it just. It just hasn't done well Her and then there's not to mention Elon musk's recent antics with regards to crypto. But yeah there's there's a lot there you talked about crypto and you talk about things not doing well. 'cause i'm looking at the price of bitcoin right now. You know thirty five eight and you know if theory him down sixteen percent in the last twenty. Four hours does coins at thirty four. Percents crypto ash. It's getting pounded. What's going on. Yeah look it's a great question. It's obviously taken substantial losses here. Look we've been saying this all the time at religion There's something that's happening in the world. That is a revolution right now. in terms of the way that things get done in terms of payment rails of the potential for programmable money the potential for a digital store value off the grid from central banks. All these things are very major factors in play but let's be playing and clear..

"A petrol cars tree vibration of the combustion engine. You know the pistons going back and forth all of that so there's a lot of energy loss through hate but the other offset of that. Is that the vibration of the engine. It was pots down on your petula. Your diesel car whereas the electric motor. There's no vibration like that. Not only is it nice at a drive but it has a lot less wear and tear new vehicle as a hall innovations in electric vehicles. That aren't necessarily the vehicle itself has all kinds of things being done around the world like putting solar panels on roads to electrify rides all the various different and. It's a wild world innovations. If feel like every other day there's like a startup that sends out a press release about something off the all those innovations that are happening. What is the one that most exciting brought the one where you saw went. that's cool. Is this something that stands out. I kind of really liked the idea of electric. Vitol's are not sure if you know what that stands for. It stands vertical takeoff and landing so the short name is tall and they're basically sometimes referred to as air taxis and they're basically like really big drones that you can fit people in and eventually. They may become autonomous as well. But at the moment there's lots of work being done on making these air taxis for the urban environment so if you can imagine you might instead of hitting peak hour you might jumping and air taxi. Catch it from one building to the next. And i mean the most recent thing that i've seen come about that is the uk. Government is actually partnering with high owned. I and another like a porter tech seaport company and they're going to make one of these air taxi ports in coventry in england. Literally blade ride like. That's that's what i'm visualizing. That's getting up your room but didn't do a deal with like the city of melbourne to test stuff like this a couple of years ago. Yeah melbourne was gonna be one of the Trial cities abe elevate. And but i'm not sure what's happened there if it was maybe put on hall because of covid yet that is. We haven't heard anything else. Come out about that in recent times. Very good about sending out press releases when literally anything happens and then back in your light and go. What are the hive emailed them and they're not getting back so i need to follow that up again. Had in terms of innovations that are happening outside of the qasem cells. Is there anything that stands out to you. A relatively simple one. But it's moving from what we started a lot about plugs. You plug your car. Today towards just wireless charging vehicles and there's a very obvious convenience of you. Just drive up to a pattern starts charging and off you go but particularly if we think about the rest of the journey that way taking towards driverless. 'cause the more that we sort of remove the need for some human input to say all right. It's here now. Somebody go plug it in. The motorcar can just pock somewhere in charge or even be driving on a road and beijing wallets driving on that road. We've really got an into a future way. you know. Vehicles and transport serves us rather than us meeting to get behind something drive. It gets away with going. That is all we've got time for on the show at this week huge. Thank you to brady schmidt later. Puerto with the electric vehicle website driven. Thanks so much being on the show. Yeah thanks for having me and beida jafari the electric vehicle council.

"For not selling electric bagels and they'll give consumers tax breaks for buying electric vehicles in the range of ten thousand dollars. You industraliazed do that. So when we get particularly cheaper electric vehicles that we need a larger volume of sales for well. You guys miss out and we'll we'll kick serving other markets and we'll get to you when we're gonna really if we fast forward into that future with a lot. More people have electronic vehicles. Electric vehicles the convenience righty. There's a whole industry of mechanics out there. That are you know. Spent decades learning how petrobras work out of curiosity. What happens to the mechanic on the corner of my straight. Like what do they retrain mean. Because a lot of these 'cause if you want to get things fixed you have to go back to the manufacturer at least at this stage so what happens to that whole sector of business. Yeah look it's it's it's part of that whole transition conversation isn't it. I know we have. I'm sure that will still need mechanics for a while to come on. We're not going to say one hundred percent electric vehicles in australia for a couple of decades. Perhaps that depends on a lot of factors of course but there definitely be time for people to transition retrain and they'll still be mechanics needed in certain industries. I'm sure your mechanics are doing that. Work around understanding the retraining re-skilling now they're not waiting for governments to get backsides their jobs and their livelihoods and the reality for that sector is their jobs have changed dramatically over. The is already you know if you imagine a twenty year old car versus a car that you buy off the line today. They are very different. Based you have to understand computers much more tinkering around a lot more weed sort of software to tell you what's wrong with the car then getting get under a lot of cases so for them looking twenty years into the future and saying well how okaz changing again. They're adapting property when somebody's looking and electric vehicle right now. What are the sorts of things. They should be looking for test. Foremost how much. How did they use their vehicles. H day. where are they going to park them into. The reality is that Causa parked for ninety percent of the time. So if you're going to drive twenty kilometers to work you know maybe could have a conversation. We do employer about plugging ucar during the day. There's the difference between short range and long range vehicles. So you know you want something. That's a little bit more affordable and has maybe between two hundred and three hundred kilometers range or you're going to be looking at something to be more expensive. That's got that extra long range depending on if you need it for your job or your daily duties out of curiosity what what is the difference between a short range and long like how do they make one long range in one short right well. It's battery size. Basically and so. That's where the difference in price comes from as well so when somebody embarks on that purchase choice. What would be your first to them. One is bit honest with yourself. Because i think when you start looking electric and you hear about ryan you'd think i must need a thousand kilometers and that's more than your car does but that's just what you imagine the thing that will guarantee you once you get the guy. You're going to be charging a lot less often than you thought you were in. You're gonna be driving a lot less often than you would. Because you're always overestimate these things as body said you car actually sits doing sits doing nothing batteries about ninety six percent of the time. So if you're wondering what. Am i gonna charge it will. You're sitting there doing nothing close to ninety six percent of the time. That's when you're going to judge a cop at the back of one of the places where i work. I've driven past a charging port and i'm like oh i didn't know that was there and i sort of took note of it because i i remember thinking like that was the first time i kind of considered the practicalities of electric vehicle and i think when people say those charging ports around i think it raises. I guess the plausibility of having one in their lot. How important he's spreading charging ports to growing that particular category of car. Well it's important for two reasons. The first one is exactly what you said. It's the sentiment so not really about how much you're actually going to need them. But when people want to buy electric vehicle. I think to themselves. Have i seen those charging points around. There might be comfortable are going to be okay. We make the joke that ranging anxiety. That people told you about something that's built by people who don't earn electric vehicles because once you on you never think about it again and you'll find that other important point though is really about the convenience you get out of electric vehicles today. We think about well. Where's the petrol station for electric vehicles. Way do i drive and the reality is anyway. This is where you're going to charge your car so whether it's at home or at work or the shopping centre or the movie theater or your cafe you know. There's already electricity. They're all you need to do. Is put the plug at the end of it. And that's where he can be judged. I actually remember writing about the first guy that imported an electric car norway. And then i think he is involved with their electric vehicle association but the story went that he actually ran an extension cord out of his office window. Charges car really. I love that with. I've asked people when they are looking this to invert that a little bit bridie when people are looking electric vehicle tossing up that choice. What do you recommend the biggest mistakes people make are certainly may be. Perhaps some of the biggest misconceptions they have look. I think again that comes back to the driving range if you assuming that you need more driving range than may be really. Natives is one of the mistakes and another mistake is assuming that your electric vehicles going to be underpowered. Conception that they they don't go far they don't have much powering. Very opposite is true in terms of power. They've got this incident talk which means that they can take off at the traffic light with that. Need to speed up the petrol and diesel. 'cause have this is a slightly left field question peyote but that's slightly outside electric vehicles. But i have a four year old and a six year old. And i've been looking at the proliferation.

"Like that's the only answer is. To have cheese. Also Melted melt waves. Yes. I'm talking about in one vehicle like my Dad Roy and Greg I've played this game. Terribly. I'm talking about like no one way you eat cheese that's the way you can it for the rest of your life like penis agreeing ill. Never, gave it example. Office. When you've done a topic, twenty, two times, you gotta think of different ways to tackle it. Is the worst one. The answer then is for me is the pizza edges a grilled cheese sandwich Oh. Very close. Sandwiches is less he's got you believe had your time. Now we've explained in great detail what we're doing. An. Say, get all the cheese on one thing is that like brexit belted Jesus was an answer but if he's just saying melted cheese, then his only way of consuming it the rest of his life is spoonfuls of melted cheese like he's not putting it on anything talking about it. I don't know a draw he's saying cheeseburger he'd saw. Greg can never have nachos against that's melted cheese. I'm telling his cheating in this game melted cheese is not an acceptable answer. Never sliced cheese a Turkey sandwich ever again. Her what vehicle do you want cheese on one vehicle for the rest of your life? Maybe that's the way it should have. said it cheese Jews Bacon, EGG AND GLUE That is good by the breakfast Sandwich Like I imagine my life though..

"You know like you knew what he was getting into. And you knew what you were getting into with Konya. Marrying this dude? Oh, man, but it's Kinda sad deal. Because I was looking at different websites today, kind of digging deeper to see what else he's been up to and sources are saying you know people that are close to him outside of like Kim's family people that has have been in his life for quite some time said that they think that he will eventually commit suicide well, they said that's how bad he can get. And just signs throughout the years and you know I was actually talking to a friend about a week ago, and she lost somebody close to her recently due to suicide in some of their friends came. To the funeral from back in the day that she didn't even know and they're like. Yeah, he's been struggling with this since we were teenagers, you know like the signs were always there, and that's what people are saying that known for quite some time, so I pray to God. He doesn't do that, you know. Oh. It's so sad. It's scary and then Courtney Stott in so she's still talking about Brian. Austin Green, she will not be. She will not be tamed. She will not shut up, so she said that he's a womanizer that he wanted to keep her a secret and the fact that they were spotted, made him angry, and so he tossed her aside and so she's not GonNa stop talking about him and she's not going to let it go. She's like yeah. We were hooking up and she just you know. He wanted to keep me in a little box that I'm not doing that anymore, do you? Do you see not being that sounds? Pretty, accurate to me. It's not cool probably what was going down uh-huh where he didn't want to know it to be. Peace and. You know his way and not. But this is funny. This whole thing now I know it's so goofy so goofy, but silver wouldn't do. I know what you're doing. But like when you came at her and said that you were disappointed in her and tried to play it off. It's like come on. We know that you guys were hooking up. Totally you're right when you just admit it well, and he he yeah, was it? You know just hooking it up. He was saying that they were in the studio, making music, and she wants to be a a musical artists, and he could help her, and like you said you like. He hasn't played a keyboard since nine to one now, and that wasn't even him playing. It was not. He's an actor. He's an actor. He does do music. They were talking like. Maybe we've sampled stuff over the years. I can't remember because there's a lot of the. Crossover music stuff, so maybe maybe he. Funny. He's been spotted with Tina Louise who's an Australian actress and a hot chick, and so I think what happened was he was kind of done with Courtney? He was just going to court on the side and be with this teen girl, and then Courtney had an issue with it, and so now she's being more vocal about their hooking up so yeah, she's not letting that go every day. She's like no Brian's jerk. He's a womanizer. Man and coming up in the middle of Hollywood. Headlines stick around. We've got baby news. Break up news and then Johnny Depp in court every day this week, and that's the thing. He can't stand his ex wife. I mean he literally hates her hates her, and he sees red when he even hears her name, but some of the stuff coming out in court. My Buddy doesn't look good for you. I mean you. Everything gets uncovered. It's not just what you think about her what she did. Your own stuff gets uncovering. It's pretty bad so I'll tell you more of that at seven twenty. Nine, seven one at's Franken just show podcast here on iheartradio. Give them solve. Dog Obe I got these stories of news here. Give me something to talk about so these your as we get into the weekend. Good conversation starters. Maybe going I don't know getting together with some people handle social distancing gets awkward man against. He needs to talk about other than the pandemic right. You want something to talk about like this. This is a crazy story so and this is out of Australia, so they have in Australia things on land and things in the ocean there. I think the most deadliest animals on land and on ocean there in and around Austrailia can kill you, so this is a story along those lines. This dude, twenty seven years old I guess. In the stories name is Jimmy I don't know what his last name so he is flying down. The highway gets pulled over and the reason that he's flying down the highway because he's trying to. He's trying to get to the hospital because he thought he he was hit or struck by the snake. That's in his car with him, so he looks down at the gearshift and it's A. It's a brown snake. Snake Eastern Brown snake, which is one of the deadliest snakes in the world, so in the thing with the bite is you don't know if your bid, so it's not like you feel it, so it was biting at the middle of the seat like as he's driving, and he's trying to wrestle with this thing, and he's got a knife and he's trying to stab it and all this while he's driving and that's. That's why I think that had happened while he was driving, then maybe pulled over, but then at that point he's racing to the hospital because they think oh no, he doesn't know if he got hit. And this is supposed to be one of the most you know when you get bit that venom like as far as the bleeding in the pain that comes with it, so he doesn't know that because the actual. Actual Bite you don't feel it weird. That's a trip, so the COP I think at that point kind of escort him to the hospital turns out. He wasn't bit, but just a crazy story made the news, and I was thinking about that like when I had been to the everglades and forever you know because of this this pandemic, but a- over the years I like to kind of go off and. Do the hiking thing in there and take pictures, and that sort of thing and videos and I remember years ago. I read a story about every you know we'll and I know that they do fine every once in a while, they'll find these snakes that are are not indigenous to. They're not. What is in the everglades, but they can survive down there and maybe not survived to the point where they you know they're just. They're gonNA. Eventually die, but because it's like subtropics down there, you can have cobras. You could have Brown snakes and I remember reading this article because Miami is like the hub were, were you as far as the the black market drop off, will the coming into Miami with all the different animals, the exotic animals. And snakes, poisonous snakes they come in there, and then people either have them as pets, and they drop them off. You know and they just kind of dump them in the everglades. So that's always like in the back of my mind like what if because I've run into some like a? It took some pictures of of a cotton mouth. And that's something that you'll. You'll find down there. That's pretty poisonous. It's even I think the bite is actually a little bit more potent than rattlesnakes crazy. If I'm just walking in. And of course, the big pythons that are down there, but I'm always thinking like would have. Something just flares up and it's like it's a cobra like Holy F. You know it's terrifying, freaked out by the not really freaked out, but that's what something's always in the back of my mind down there. Anyway, this is why stay inside, and it sounds like there's a market if there's like a snake, hang out like we need to build bars hotels. Snake Compaq. Area. We'll have a community. This is funny, so giving you something to talk about if you're just tuning into the show, so it's a new survey asking people there obviously during the pandemic. You're you're missing. Seeing probably certain family members, you might be seeing some of your family members, but then some certain friends. You're not seeing as many people as you normally would outside of this pandemic but with the survey, the asked people that they're excited to reunite with when it's safe again and less than one percent said that they're excited to see their coworkers again. Play with zero point seven eight percents less than one percent, so that was less than one out of one hundred people. That's crazy that are not. They're not looking for looking forward to seeing their coworkers I thought that was funny I thought that'd be a little bit higher well. You don't get to pick your co workers, you know. Put together. Goes to same with family, too, you know. so this is something that instagram just unveiled and I think it was on Wednesday and I don't know. Kylie heard about this. I thought. I'm not sure if we I don't think we talked about this it's available to everybody who uses the APP, so they start started testing this out back in May. Available looks like on as of Wednesday. So, they announced Let's see here on twitter. That everyone could be getting access to this feature, so the rolling out these pin comments. You've heard about the pin. Comments so that means you can pin a few comments to the top of your feet.

We played the clip of Kevin Hart so you watched his new Netflix's special or one of his netflix special. We started watching so funny dude. He's the best funny. Looking like it's GonNa be hot today, so we're GONNA. Be Upper nineties. Today looks like tomorrow. We're going to be in the triple digits, and then the back into the upper nineties on Sunday, and that sounds like a cool front coming through for next week, and it sounds like we're gonNA. Be in the eighties I. Think Starting next week about Monday or so seventy nine. Is You get up right now? We've got a lot of things to get to. It is Friday so when about let's thirty minutes here? We've got well actually not twenty to. Thirty minutes because I'm still in that mode of seven to eleven on which we went back to sixty ten. Hours here Tuesday. We started back with that so thirty minutes. We've got given you something to talk about seven o'clock. WE'RE GONNA to get into this topic here because of the pandemic and because of an interview that Kylie, hero So, did you pick up a new hobby or interest? During the pandemic? Because of this interview that you just did with Pao, Fu on zoom. They were talking about somethin'. Who is an artist that we play coffee for your head so that Song that's Papa when he's from Canada and one of the things he talked about picking up was birdwatching with his girlfriend. Yeah, they governor! During the pandemic, so we WANNA know. Have you picked up anything as far as a new hobby, your interest or in the pandemic? Even eating that will work to. So many people are eating. That's funny, maybe not Indian. Interest or hobby, though so something that you picked up because the bike sales they have been the biggest since the seventies people getting bikes and bike shops out of bikes because people are looking, you know looking at doing the bike fence. Cool Stars, riding bikes more So what is it that you picked up during the pandemic eight to nine four five, or you can call us as we get a little closer to several open up the phones, eight, two, one, five, seven, one, nine, seven one And then Tony discussed coming up at seven forty this morning, a lot of the Friday morning usuals on the way, and then like you, said thirty minutes away from giving you something to talk about when we come back the early edition of Hollywood headlines. What are we start with? We've got an update on Nyah Rivera. You've been listening to the ninety seven one. Franklin and just show podcast right here on.

"That same call four hundred thousand rent. Yes, you will have a say 20% of the job. That means you will be paying off the capital of eighty thousand not two hundred thousand, okay? The that is to bring down your monthly installment. But at the end of term, you still owe the bank that 20% So if it's a kind of driving a call and wanting to file a straight a month that is the option to go with but it's not the one that we would advise wage. That's quite a common option nowadays. It is a common option because as human beings we always like to over Excel or drive something that's above I mean, so you actually blushing yourself a diamond a more expensive car and not really being able to afford it. So first 20% that they would withhold of the cage is actively at the end you'd have to Ally financial priority cash that residual value at residual value in 14 years of age. We have my maybe in out of thousands of deals. If you've done done Financial deals. I really that is Onyx in systems of the client off. So basically if the client said you're not going to do this we're going to do the deal with you and we were always against us because we they see the backlash of this month of banks having Finance residual dents and people coming to us and saying I receive this later that are other bank 60,000 end or 70,000 red and have to pay them in the on that due date that is of people who have scheduled x i c and then in most cases we actually refinance that residual value for them. So they end up buying a lot longer. For the for call. And so so it's not an advisable Financial option for the normal ones pay the monthly HP to the capital and interest level two. Okay, that makes sense. Okay, not to apply for finance one of these Central criterias you look for before approving an application on your site. So we we thought are not aligned ourselves. Yeah, so they need a banking license. So we are in the community that helps and place Finance if you will commercial Banks, so I crash. Very similar to what they could. They are some some exceptions made to us in terms of the the club buckets the amount of wristbands blood type for certain dealerships are very conservative. And there's a limited with rust bucket that will do with us is we had the biggest scope of this bucket almost as if we have Fleet and that's because of our collecting buying power. So a person had traditionally might not be approved at Birth. The normal small dealership on the corner might get approved to us Google that extension. So let's get back to your question Clear Credit record. No judgments, no adverse payments. No light payments no history of Private Pilot Car in the past month and they've repositioned. Okay. So you're specifically looking for that then with regards to the car. Not a repossession cause or does it apply? For example, the latest you can apart in age or acquitted that's on their report? Yes. Well, there's I mean is if you think of the stage of people defaulted on minor life or the liquid by the extra payment on the dentist bulb, yes. I'm from being excluded by that credit bureaus and the banks and also waited that fact you signed up for the Garden Prairie South Grand, doesn't mean he's necessarily equipped buyer. Okay? Okay, so Traditionally in the past. Does that count against you? But now it doesn't so much be interesting to see how the bank scoring models will change of the cobit because this is Thursday every person in the world. So it's not just a stupid saying that you know, it's not like a mining same thing with like closing the sacred down and a lot of miners are losing their jobs. We are nomads you are blue collar mid-range or a wealthy person. We are all suffering the same kind of consequence expenses are relative. And so young people are defaulting on high end, but go ahead and loving and so it'll be interesting to see how the banks are approaching the news calling model, which I would not alter and you haven't yet encountered that you haven't yet noticed anything with regards to the strange there might be upcoming what we've seen one of the one largest beds with many dead. No, one mentioned it lies the device that has defaulted doubled up on what prime is as a general approval rating. So, it's Prime Meats. Are they coming in like 15% Yeah, cuz even if you are a property plus one kind of candidate they are coming in a dead and there's a default price so long that would be a negotiation with with with that specific bank on that specific client, but it's almost like they the guys aren't scared and I can understand that because they've seen the backlash against happened. He said it's a new it's a new trend even in everyone's actually in training on every level Ryan is my data. There's no jobs gone for see one person happened. And the funny thing is we in a very false illusion really was merciless have taken up permanent body dies on our payments off call payments and and house payments. A lot of those now in July will be the last payment holidays the 3 month ends. So reality is really hating the next month's. And I think that is when the banks will be able to determine whether people have lost jobs or take salary Cuts Commissioners not very commission off and then uncertainty you can understand what happened determined that title will will have to determine as to how they will score the future. So I think the bank sign for a rough ride in people are very unsympathetic sometimes events. Okay, so it's you know what they making money and they do this do that in a magazine trusting to learn new 200,000 on the call that if they had any time. I've decided to give us a call and then you will be able to that's the rest of bank takes an illness specifics an oil change. Basically not going to make money they're going to that's going to lose a lot of money millions and millions and millions of eggs and and hopefully not too much because it's kind of alter ego. They're going to be pricing in the future true and even asset will have Financial people are will apply in the future might offer price waiting for those boxes. So so it's it's very it's a it's a very uncertain time. But in the city of vehicle Finance is a You need a car to take the kids to.

"You re evaluate goals and develop both personally and professionally learn more at H. B. S. dot. ME EMME slash go. That's H. B. S. dot. Me Slash. Go before the break. My deposited that a future with autonomous cars that all but eliminate fatal car crashes hinge upon building driverless vehicles. That are much better at driving cars than humans are in all situations now. It could be a bit more loosey Goosey here but doing so brings up some tough ethical issues so for example. What if we knew that machines were better right? Autonomous cars are better than human drivers but they are by no means perfect. So what if we could be certain that Atanas cars if widely adopted would reduce those fatalities behalf for example but that they would still be at fault Holt in the case of the other half of fatal car accidents. So let's say it's twenty thirty and we have level four four autonomous cars that are pretty reliably level for and they are better as a whole than human drivers are. So we've seen a vast reduction in vehicles operated by humans and let's even assume that most cars are now controlled by computers but it's also assume they're not perfect now. Oh using the numbers from two thousand eighteen. If humans were still in control we would expect to see another forty thousand fatalities due to human error. And I'm just using that number. As as an example I realized that in reality we'd be talking about ninety four percent of forty thousand but now the cars are in control. It means half of those accidents are totally prevented But we still see fatal accidents that claimed twenty thousand lives on the one hand. We could look at that scenario and say based based upon what we know from past experience we will have seen many more people die in accidents if humans were actually still operating cars but on the other hand. That's all hypothetical right. I mean we can only know anything based on what actually happened not on what might have happened if things had gone a different way we. We can't be sure but more than that. Though we're still talking about twenty thousand people losing their lives and all the ripple effects that that makes throughout society society and moreover we have machines that are at the fault for those twenty thousand lives being lost and the idea that people have built machines that through a failure of some sort or another resulted in deaths is a very difficult proposition to accept. Also it's just icky to think of in terms like that. Clearly one death is too many. We don't want to see anyone die in a car accident so having a discussion and what you compare a fewer number of deaths and referring to it as quote unquote better is something. That's pretty hard for us to process. It's easier had to do it the other way right. I mean it's obvious that forty thousand people dying is worse than twenty thousand people dying but it's hard to view it the other way because anyone dying at all is awful. The part of this also really boils down to a fear of handing over control to a machine I know Oh. A lot of people balked at that idea. They don't like the idea of not being the actual entity making decisions behind the wheel confronting them with statistics. Showing how human error leads to catastrophe doesn't tend to sway them. I mean a lot of people think will. Yeah that's other people i. I am not that person also to be fair. We don't have the evidence to show that computers would necessarily be better. So there's something to that right now. Okay let's get back to where we were in our history. The grand challenges help set the stage for the next phase of development which was mostly the realm of startups ups and some big companies namely Google would hire participants from the grand in urban challenges to come and work in new divisions dedicated to creating reading driverless cars. The early pioneering work was now shifting pun intended into a phase of rapid iteration as engineers and computer scientists ientist and mechanics begin to refine technologies to help make them better so going from the first sort of proof of concept approach to. How do we make this a better designed so it does the thing? It does but more effectively. Google's program began in earnest around two thousand nine not long long after the urban challenge in twenty ten publications began to report on the project so it had been secret for about a year. Maybe almost two years Google well had been testing vehicles in and around the mountain view California headquarters for the company and while the vehicle still had manual controls and they still had a driver behind the wheel. There were at least some segments of some of these test drives that felt totally under the control of the vehicle itself. It was racking up miles of autonomous driving experience it was gathering doing data and those people who are working in the division use that data to further refine their approach by twenty ten the company had logged more than one hundred forty two thousand miles driven by autonomous vehicles which equals out to around two hundred twenty five thousand kilometers. And that's pretty you know respectable respectable distance. But let's compare that against the miles that were driven by human drivers in the United States so in twenty ten. US drivers accumulated nearly nearly three trillion miles trillion. So that means if you were to percentage and you say how many how. Much percentage percentage of miles did Google cars drive compared to human drivers in the US in two thousand ten The Google cars would account for about point zero. Oh zero zero zero zero four seven percent of all miles traveled vehicle miles so not you. You can call it a fraction of a percent but even that is being generous. It's a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent. Now if you're familiar with the idea of things conducting surveys you know that sample size is really important right. If you ask five people a question extrapolating those five answers to try and apply liat to the population at large is a bad idea. It's not a good sample size. Don't have enough data to draw any conclusions. It's definitely bad science. So makes little sense to compare the results of autonomous vehicles. That haven't even come. Close to accumulating percentage of the miles driven by the population relation at large. You cannot compare the two because the experience so monumentally different now for several years. Google's cars ars operated without any accidents at least not any. That were the fault of the driverless car itself. There were a few incidents but they either happened when the safety driver was operating the car so a human driver was driving. The Google car not autonomous vehicle mode or they that was the fault fault of some other driver right.

"A simulated urban urban environment complete with traffic and traffic laws. Like traffic lights and stop signs and simulated pedestrians. It wouldn't be enough. have to design a car that can detect a road and follow it or even a car capable of managing stuff like how to how to send Torque to different wheels wheels in order to get out of a tricky situation. The cars would need advanced collision detection and decision making capabilities. They have to obey traffic laws. They'd have to be able will to adapt to potentially changing situations. The kind of stuff you might find. If you're driving around a city so in that case six teams were able bowl to finish the course stanford racing would actually take second place that time they clocked in at just under four and a half hours. First place went to a group called Tartan racing from Carnegie Mellon University and they finished in four hours ten minutes now. The purpose of these competitions wasn't justified out which groups of smarty pants engineers were able to build the best car it was an attempt to kickstart serious development in the various fields. Related did to making autonomous cars. Possibility engineers were done all sorts of different designs some INC lots of optical cameras. Some some used lie DR which is type of laser based rangefinding technology similar to radar so it works by Zapping laser and then detecting any reflections coming back from that laser light uses an array of sensors looking for any evidence of that laser light coming back to the sensor and then it measures the the time difference between win the laser went out and win it picked up the reflection and then working with math. It can figure out how far away away an obstacle is from the vehicle knowing that it can also figure out whether or not that obstacle is moving or stationary. Or if it's moving away from or towards the the vehicle can figure out all that And I've talked about that in past episodes so I won't get into the full technical details here but it was one of those key components that it's used in some but not all vehicles that are following under this autonomous car development. It's interesting because there are lots of different companies. That are working on on autonomous cars. They are not all relying on exactly the same technologies to achieve that goal. Some of them are much more heavily focused on optical cameras. Some of them are more focused on things like lied. Dr and other sensors some of them involve whole slew of different technologies. That are meant to be both Primary Systems and redundant systems since really interesting and it was. It was really impressive to see these teams complete the urban challenge but again it didn't immediately make everyone think driverless cars would be available right away. The challenges while impressive didn't compare to what the average human driver deals with on a regular day. The competition times were pretty long The average speeds were all below fifteen miles per hour. So they're all below twenty four kilometers per hour at that speed. It was clear that these vehicles were just the earliest incarnations of technologies that would power autonomous cars in the future. So they were airing on the side of caution which frankly you want in the first place. Clint to see a lot of people. Say let's take some chances with when you're talking about vehicles GEICO I mean they're human lives at stake. Meanwhile another narrative drive home pun intended. Why a lot of folks got really hyped up about automous cars? It's also a sobering line of thought and I'm talking of course about the frequency of fatal car accidents and how many of them can be traced back to human error now getting global. St Statistics is is pretty tough on this. So I'm going to focus on the United States because we have have a lot of organizations in the US that track these kinds of numbers and you can kind of get an idea of how big the problem is so in twenty eighteen. The National Safety Council released a report that stated an estimated forty thousand people had died in car accidents in the United States That actually really amounted to a decline of one percent from two thousand seventeen That was when forty thousand. Two hundred thirty one people died another four and a half million people on top of that had become seriously injured in car crashes in twenty eighteen. Meanwhile the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The station in the United States said that ninety four percent of serious car crashes result due to human error or dangerous choices so in other words. Mechanical failures only contribute a very small percentage to the overall numbers. When it comes to serious car accidents? Most serious car accidents aren't caused by a tyre blowout or you know a car. Failing in some way they're caused by humans doing something wrong long whether it's totally by accident or someone just makes a really bad decision like we think. Oh sure there's no. There's no dashed line here. But I'M GONNA go ahead and try and pass this person on this winding Rural Rhode because I bet nobody's coming the other way that's what we would call a bad decision so oh says the tech optimist. If you could create autonomous cars operates safely you could eliminate the vast majority of car crashes crashes and thus fatalities on the road you just remove the human error element and suddenly you're talking about a staggering result and and that is an incredibly powerful motivator. Tens of thousands of people wouldn't die each year from these car accidents. Millions more would never be injured or affected by the tragic loss of a loved one from an accident. Then you start moving outward you go out another circle you think of this as a ripple effect and you think imagine all the contributions those people might make in the future that they'll get a chance to make because they wouldn't have had this terrible car crash. These are things we never would see. Come to fruition if they were to get in a fatal car crash and and it becomes this butterfly effect issue and of course we want to make the road safer for everyone now. I'm sure all of you have already hit upon the major issue here. The whole concept of people being safer in autonomous cars is contingent upon those autonomous cars performing better better than humans. All ready do an every type of situation in which humans find themselves driving in if we can't get that right then we haven't made things at all. All we would have done is shifted the cause of the accidents from human error to machine error or computer huterer error so we must be absolutely certain that the vehicles we make meet a very high standard if our goal is to reduce car car accidents so we have to prove that these machines operate better than people do in all the different situations people find themselves driving in before before we can make any sort of declared of statement of this is the best way forward now when we come back. I'll talk about why this super tricky and talk talk about thought experiments and things and and also some real world scenarios that kind of illustrate why this is harder than what it sounds but first first. Let's take a quick break. Can the weather predict you. That's a good question. The kind kind.
