"I don't know if you noticed another actor that popped up a Verne troyer of fame. He he played the alien baby I believe I inside the head. No No. The one that's delivered in the car where Wilson is getting slapped around by the tentacles, the tentacled squid baby I believe. He's listed as alien son. Wait wait.

"When it comes to getting the coronavirus vaccine can you get the vaccine without getting a shot apparently the answer is yes at least one southern California company believes that the ears are a great vigor the inventor of this vaccine slash patch for corona virus says it would be like putting on a bandaid no needles and be filled with microneedles and all you feel is pressure microneedles are so tiny you can hardly even see the needles are so short they don't reach a nerve so it doesn't hurt Dr Daniel Henderson of Verne dari a company based in napa one of more than a hundred companies in a rush to create a corona virus vaccine I wouldn't be doing it I thought it was pretty good and he says it would save money using needles for vaccines is more expensive he says these patches could be sent in the mail if the FDA approves it could be in human clinical trials this summer
"verne" Discussed on The Wade Keller Pro Wrestling Podcast
"That's PW torch dot com slash KGO VIP but anyway mean gene. Know Gino Cappelletti. You WanNa talk about when we go back to People that left Vernon the Awa you know gene was one of those guys he he he started in the Awa gene got his start from Verne. Gene wouldn't Aben gene without vern if you WANNA really be technical because Verne was the one that put the suit on on Gene Oakland and made him the announcer. When Mario Neil back in the seventies was unable to unable to and wouldn't cross the picket lines for a strike and Vernon at the last minute went to Jean Oakland who was the WTN TV WTN is now care. Eleven for those that don't know but WTC on TV at the old. Calhoun Beach Hotel. Where the TV studios were and he went up to gene and bad rush right before the. All Star wrestling program was to begin and said the gene. You got a sport coat. You GotTa do the show for me and gene. He reflected that he did not know how to do wrestling and Burns said. Don't worry we're going to get through this. Just get out there and take the Mike and gene was very kind and in his Eulogy that he thinks Verne for for that. Start and all of the Celebrity that had brought him in the in the career that he you know got from it he said I wouldn't have had that without vern. Ganja and But Jeans Eulogy was a very nice tribute going through earns history where he talked about. Vernice the athlete in College. He talked a little bit about his serving our country and he talked about Vern be a new star out of college and putting the Olympics in nineteen forty eight You know he was an alternate in the Olympics and then he talked about how he came to pro wrestling and immediately which was unusual in that time period. I should point out to the it was very unusual for a wrestler to start a career and be main eventing right away in that era. It just didn't happen. Verne was the exception. So in nineteen forty nine. He immediately was a success because of his background is college. Background is amateur wrestling background and he was when the Dumont Network and gene was telling this story. You know. And I'm paraphrasing all of it right now but he talked about how the Dumont network out of Chicago was you know. Basically the the one link to the country at that point in this new medium called television and earned Ganja along with killer Kowalski and Liu says and gorgeous George and Buddy Rogers. We're but a handful of guys that every promoter in the country wanted to have on their cards and Verne was one of them. And that's one of the reasons that he became a household name. But you know gene also pointed out that Verne brought when we all know this this stuff all of us have said but gene pointed it out that Verne brought legitimate wrestling to the carnival antics that wrestling could sometimes do even back in that day and he said vern. What's the real deal and fans knew that when Verne came to the arena or his name was on the marquee that this was a wrestling match and I was seeing a real wrestler regardless of who is opponent was and Jean pointed out that that was the stardom for Verne through the fifties and when he started the Awa breaking away from the Nwea in nineteen sixty that Verne Ganja had no problem with getting sponsors for the show and you know he was endorsing products? I don't know how many people know this way. But there's a vern gone yet. Board game that out in the mid fifties. They're they're legitimately is it was vern. Gone Your Board Game. If if folks are familiar with the board games and they have a little spinner where you spend the take your turn and you'll go so many squares all this thing and you know well. The board game on burn. Ganja was one of those products in the fifties now back in that era such a thing was really unheard of. It's not on like today. Where marketing for everything in especially the wwe? How well they market Everything for a wrestler but Verne had that that game folks can go out if you can find a game right now you can pay a couple of hundred two thousand dollars for it. I'm sure it was probably five bucks back in the day if that. Yeah but Gino. Cappelletti went through all of this that he had a lot of anecdotes and and told about you. Know How they tape and he said you know burn would get excited when something didn't go right and and and you know but vern was the boss. He wanted the product to be right and he said Yeah wasn't as glitzy as it is today and his as professional looking but it was for the for the era was the state of the art and and vern started the color era in Tv and one thousand nine hundred seventy to one of the first programs in the twin cities in the in the local media market to go to color if fans don't realize that it is true that all star wrestling was one of the first color shows. Even though color had been around since the mid sixties you know in various measures but all star wrestling Verne was the first local market television show with wrestling. That did that. Here's what I want to share about gene at the very end and this I tell you Wade if you looked around the church and I did and I was one of them. That did this as well when gene delivered the line. I'm going to give you. There was not a dry in that church wrestler family friend. Whatever they were there they all you saw them wiping their eyes and Gino. Oakland finished his eulogy with this. And I and I'm not gonNA pretend that I can do it as Jean. Oakland did 'cause we all know what a great voice the Gene Oakland has. But this is what Jean said he said as I end my eulogy. There is only one way that we can do this. Fittingly Ladies and gentlemen by heavyweight champion of the world vern done. Yeah that's very appropriate. Everybody wiped there is yes. And that's.

Difference Between a Maker and an Engineer in the Maker Movement
"Been this series of articles by a fellow who we've talked about on the show before Michael Mola's Hugh who's thankfully been around for quite a while and has not walked away like so many others have because they didn't get rich quick or something But he he's sticking to it and he's been writing a series of articles about the maker movement since make media went kind of bankrupt. They've re the make media folks have reinvented themselves into nonprofit and from what we hear Dale dougherty the guy who He didn't actually started. He started with The fellows O'Reilly Timaru Riley and Tim O'Reilly said ticket. And he got up and left and made his own little thing and and he and from what we hear. He has taken his own money and purchased from the holders. The people that owned the the properties to everything To get at the content and the titles and the names and things so supposedly Dale dougherty. Now Kinda owns it and what we hear. He's looking at making it into a nonprofit which sounds good. I think that might be the better way to go. And we'll talk about why in a second but mister you has kind of featured What's been happening to this? I'm using my finger. Air Quotes Maker Movement One thing about Mr use articles that he's never really stated explicitly and we would like to is the distinct and explicit difference between a maker and an engineer. So let's make something clear. People have been making things for quite a while. We've had the wheel for a while. Now it's just a few years. I didn't get invented when make make magazine came out. You know the fact. We've had these people. These strange beings go by the handle engineer for quite a while. Now but what's the difference between an engineer and a maker and there is a difference. I mean you can be an engineer and a maker of course sure but we believe that. There is an explicit distinction. That makes a person a maker versus engineer. And that's a person who's making something just for the sake of making it. They're not making it to meet a specific objective for some external pressure. Thing like you got to make this. They're not they're not. There's no gold. There's no necessarily a contract or a thing that has to be fixed because nobody really needs a life-size animated giraffe that they can drive around make refer cool and nobody really needs a giant statue with flames coming out of who knows what orphans. You really don't have. Don't give them any ideas. And if we look at the roots of the even the maker Faire and make media they themselves went to the artists from the burning men community and brought them in along with the folks who were the. What do you call them again? The the Jules Verne fanatics that water steam pulse team. And they do things just for the sake doing for the fun of it for the art of it for their motion of it and and we believe that defines a maker. That's what makes them maker and there's some differences in that in that light because now a maker does not necessarily mean they're an engineer. They could be an artist. Could be musician. They could just be a ten year old kid. Who's not sure what? What are your she wants to be or do that. But it sounds like fun to make this thing. That could be fun. It would be cool water. Some of the more impressive things you see more. Technically complex things you see are being made by people who are in their day jobs engineers and some of the ten year old kids grow up to become engineers because they were inspired by it in their in their youth. But but yeah. I think you're right in the. The central motivation is different now. Going to a university and interviewing some engineering. Phd's about the maker Movement. Is that kind of problematic? Because are they makers well? Yeah they're makers doing things for the fun of it. Some of them are the market. They've they've got their their budgets. They have to meet. They've got their students that got to teach the their goal directed there. I mean they could be makers they monto sit back and develop something fun. That's well within the realm of reality for them but that's not that's not their career. They're not making a career as a quote maker. Very few people do right. And as such what has to question if the whole idea of a maker movement makes sense for a financial endeavor probably not Does the maker Movement make sense as the basis for stem Maybe to get the initial interest. Yeah it's motivating that would be great but as the foundation for Stem I. I don't I don't think so. I think traditional education environments are essential for stem. You still have to learn the basics you still have to have the foundations all right and to be an engineer. You still have to know details that most makers just don't want to sweat sure but you can you can when you're trying to get kids motivated to learn stuff showing them you know some application of it that that interests them. Yes is much much more important. Oh Yeah Oh sure I mean I. It's it's in my opinion. It's a lot more fun than shooting at Aliens on screen sure area. But but I mean I I I show my kids. You know something that they're interested in. They're interested in building. Somebody I say okay well. Here's here's you know how you start but then you need your math. You Gotta learn this math in order to do this process. You know all right. So there's some motivation to learn some math skills that ordinarily most young folks say. Why do I need this? Yeah well you need it. In order to make the bullet go further right exactly. The Little Arrow go further at that. Get that piece to fit better. Whatever and this was never made clear by Mr you in any of his articles each simply kind of like most of the make media related kind of stuff just kind of glossed over the fact that there is a big difference between Disciplined Foundation Engineering and shoot from the hip having fun maker. Let solder it together and see if it works. It doesn't make is not synonymous with open source. No I don't agree with that Open source has a strong engineering foundation. All Open source came came from the software world. I mean I remember the early. Pdp Lebanon's they. The deck people sat here. It's open source that you could play with it and do whatever you want with it. But in the end we want in right and a lot of that is happening in this commune. This word. Yeah we do see that So it's not automatically you know. Open source equals maker. No I don't agree with that But there is overlap. Yeah definite overlap But that doesn't equate open source does not equate to the maker.

An Introduction to the Industrial Revolution
"We're going to look at the consequences of this revolution first and then you'll see how important it is to understand first of all. Here's a definition of the industrial revolution. It's the use of steam engines to produce power instead of the ways going back thousands of years wind water and muscle and the second definition of the industrial revolution is it's the rapid social change that flows from that introductory machine in other words. The steam engine is quite literal definition of the industrial revolution but what were the consequences consequences of using the steam engine instead of wind water and muscle rapid social change was the answer the industrial revolution's chief product product was a world in constant change mainly in the areas of transportation and communications think about it this way at the beginning of the nineteenth century that is the eighteen hundreds the army of Napoleon did not move faster really then the armies of Julius Caesar Two thousand years earlier so in terms of transportation you couldn't get from Point A. Point B. Any faster Mr in one thousand nine hundred then you could in say five hundred. BC however by the end of the eighteen hundreds it was possible to go around the world in eighty days which was of course the title of Jules Verne's famous novel and you could send Semaphore. I four messages in a flash from one continent to another so that gives you a sense of the rapid changes in technology to just use one example news in eighteen hundred was very slow and very selective. It was only available to the rich in order to buy a newspaper. You had to have enough money to buy a newspaper which was certainly not cheap and news production production was quite slow and in fact the the whole concept of news did not exist until the industrial revolution brought it into existence in order to have news. You have to have change in society but if people were living in eighteen hundred you're pretty much the way they lived in say five hundred they would not be expecting to read much in a newspaper. Even if they could afford one they couldn't afford one but they didn't even have the concept of news. News requires a society that changes and the society never really changed changed not for the common people that's why when we study history we tend to study kings and generals and statesmen and what they do because at the level of the common people there's not much historical change to talk about so there was no concept of news news but by the eighteen thirty s and eighteen forties thanks to the industrial revolution which started in England news production began to increase and also thanks to the Industrial Revolution Printing presses were produced which were so advanced that they could produce a newspaper for only a penny and for example in eighteen thirty two. You have the first Penny newspaper The New York Sun in the United States of America now that was going to revolutionize politics because for the first time relatively poor people could afford to buy a newspaper for only a penny and once they could read the news once they purchase it. They could read it and once they could read it. They knew what was going on and then it became a factor in politics. newspaper editors would have to pay attention to the opinions of the poor whereas before the poor never had an opinion because they could not know what was going on and in the nineteenth century in Europe and America newspaper Editors Editors Editors were the political kingmakers who could select candidates and mobilize people to support them so the industrial revolution created the technology that gave people a reason to look for news and the means to look for the news because of the relatively cheap cost of the printing press and the ability to turn out a newspaper for just a penny any so this is one way in which the industrial revolution was going to revolutionize society in the next podcast. We're going to be looking at the first country to experience an industrial revolution.

An Interview with Space Historian, Rod Pyle
"Here with our next guest rod pile space historian he's worked with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Johnson Space Center and as written a lot as well he was written for PBS and well you also can involve with Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica say if engine interesting stuff thanks for being with us thanks for having me and it's you know some people would call me a diverse career background person other people would call me a dilettante but yeah I'll check whatever well you can choose how you decide so let's start with what you did and have done for NASA so I had it kind of worked around the edges of that off and on back in that the ninety is mostly doing television production so occasionally we'd cross over into what NASA was doing but I was the car the employee of theirs but then about two thousand nine I got hired to write this really interesting program they wanted an executive training program the partnership between NASA and this group called the copper toward other York so I got together with the guy from IBM and we wrote up this training program and did that for a couple years I was great fun because if you're gonna talk you gonna give people lectures about how great space age was having a standard five behind with the profits but it's cool the gastric salute that was really fun and then finally the on time about two thousand twelve I guess two thousand thirteen I started working for Jeff horse migratory Pasadena on as needed basis writing books and articles for them and that that was really cool because now you're sitting there talking with the guys they call this stuff happens so this guy worked on many relator arm the rover and this guy over here worked on some kind of inflatable antenna system for CubeSats they're just brilliant really dedicated people that are so passionate excited about what they do and of course that that translates into you if you're listening to open hopefully the writing he's on a little bit about Mars making contact and also the blueprint for a battle star Margaret your contact was a cooperative they're both coffee table books in the sense Mars make contact was I'd written two books before the kind of looked over the Mars missions from mostly the American perspective somewhat from the Russian perspectives albeit perspective but they didn't have the kind of like we did so there's much more of an American story there and then as we got about twenty fifteen twenty sixteen won the publishers I work with said you know we really like to look at everybody's projects so that means the United States and Europe and Japan's made the Tampa and and India actually succeeded with their very first try a couple years ago and they want to do a picture book of it so I thought well this is great and actually got paid to do so I got to go hang out the archive your post laboratory and a few other places in big draw the old photos and interview the folks that worked on so forth so it's just really fun kind of a broad look at that basically everything that's happened since about nineteen sixty four four I think all the NSS what's that actual spaces ID at the group the oldest prose base human spaceflight group out there it was actually founded as a wage to organizations that merge one of them was founded by Werner von Braun the father the Saturn five back in nineteen seventy is and then the other group sub group was formed by a guy got to the office of the guiding Jerry o'neill was big the space colonies use a visionary at Princeton so those two groups merged a few years later and form the society so it's just a huge pros based advocacy group they have some political action they do I edit a magazine called ad astra which is a nice splashy quarterly periodical and then we got your the conventions and education programs in stem programs and so forth that you just really good good group of people I listened to I don't know who's a podcast of some broadcast of some kind that you were involved in and it was I learned a lot from it and you talked about whether it would make more sense next to go to the moon again or to try to go to Mars can you talk about the the risk reward present kinds of each of those so this is the longest you want to start a food fight one of the space advocacy groups just an argument going up moreover Mars or vice versa and it's been going on for a long time we've been talking about going to the moon sense Jules Verne wrote about it the eighteen hundreds with talk about going to Mars at least since the nineteen forties one or one about brown started writing seriously about it really before that with the various other visionaries and the question always been you know which ones cheaper wall so we did the moon in the nineteen sixties with their power projects so we know that that's doable and I would say it's behind us but we kind of picked the low hanging fruit there so the question now is what limited budgets and limited frankly attention span with both the public and Congress which one do you pick well Mars program is a very ambitious goal would be very inspiring for people but it could be anywhere from hundreds of billions to by some estimates as much as a trillion dollars and it's a long trip you know by the time you go out do you think there and come back it could be a year and a half two years and we just don't yet quite know enough about the effects of extended space flight on people both in terms of no gravity and also the radiation out there I'm kind of understand it but we need to know more about how to mediate it now to keep her from damaging people so the moon just makes an awful lot of sense in terms of something that's cheaper ball there's a lot of science rewards there there's a lot of training and work we could do towards getting to Mars and probably most importantly as it turns out recently discovered that in the last decade there's a lot of frozen water water on the south for the modem the ice and where you got water you can melt that make rockets you'll need make readable aired you can make drinking water you can go all kinds of stuff there's also metal and glass and some other elements on the moon that are very useful so for every bit of that you find there and can use their or used to go beyond to Mars let's say that's a whole bunch of stuff you don't have to watch in the space so you can use smaller rockets you save money at all just gets much much much easier so for my money the moon the next logical step and plus the the reward of going to Mars is more strictly scientific not so much commercial writing like did there's a possibility at least in a distant fantasy to manufacture on the moon maybe it will be cheaper somehow and you just kick the stuff back to earth and you can have a an earth the type of crowded and dying because of so much industry on a you can have all the industry up there I mean is that a crazy crazy I'm think of a thing or is that at least something you could end that might be a reason to go to the moon well I think that's what the settlement discussion comes and that's one of the things the national space society is very focused on so that you know it's not a fantasy it's doable it's workable we know that we've got everything in place with today's technology if we just get off our behind the bill what separates those founder of Amazon is so keen about he formed a rocket company actually before you on must did the SpaceX based Basil's former tropical blue origin back in two thousand and gives express purpose was to move heavy manufacturing off over do it in space or is not going to hurt anybody allow the plant to heal you go back to it you know like state if you well and give people options to live and work awesome first because there's a lot more resources even the local solar system then there is honor if you just have to go out and get up so this pretty compelling financial argument here and as you know as well as I do when there's a profit to be made suddenly things start moving a lot faster so I think that or on the cusp of right now so wouldn't it be my got would say be prohibitively expensive to manufacture stuff on the moon but that's not the case it doesn't have to be the case the thing is is to make getting there for the first few dozen times less expensive than what we're doing it with the Saturn five back in the nineteen sixties it cost a bundle you know in today's dollars the proper Graham would have been about a hundred and fifty billion under sixty billion she so that was expensive for six landings but nowadays when you have you on must flying as rockets for in some cases virtually a bird or or less than the other commercial providers are in there already cheaper than it was the nineteen sixties and their reusable they fly back to home base robotic we all by themselves and landed the refuelling be used again and Bayless is doing something very similar and other companies trying to get in on the act now you're reducing costs down by be be a factor of ten or alternately a hundred when you start reaching those numbers suddenly going out and doing stuff on the moon it's very affordable makes a lot of sense on the other side of that is once you're there you got these manufactories going your commoditized the stuff they put a price on it so

"Wallich Verne Lundquist new book is play by play calling the wildest games in sports. All hell will break loose. That's what university of Maryland. President Wallace low told the board of regents about what would happen if football coach DJ Durkan was reinstated. And that's where we're going to start this week on three stories, you should know. I'm joined by the Boston Globe and prince yadi and the Wall Street Journal's Jason gay welcome back to both of you. I Garrett thank you. So I was totally sucked into the Maryland house appropriations committee meeting this week. That's a sentence. I never thought I'd say just a recap Maryland linemen, Jordan McNair died of heatstroke last spring investigations found instances of what I'm going to describe as abusive treatment of players the head coach was briefly reinstated. Then fired and the university president is retiring, but won't really say why. But what that university president will say to lawmakers under oath is that a university chancellor ignored his recommendation to fire coach DJ. Durkan and overstepped by bringing the coach back, and it might be totally silly of me. But I have this hope that this whole thing puts those who would put winning football games over the health and safety of players on notice. Jason I know you're gonna tell me I'm being far too optimistic. So go ahead. You might be being far too optimistic. This is yet another example of the sort of win at all costs culture, which is pervasive in college sports, and you look at a program like Maryland joined the big ten head full years ago with big plans on improving and growing its footprint in the world of football hasn't panned out that way, but you when you see the kind of conflict that was happening at the national level between the board between the president. You realize the stakes that are involved in how warped the system has become. I have a note in front of me that says Maryland is playing Ohio State this weekend smiley face smiley face. So that's two programs that have. I've been embroiled in scandal over the past year and wall a player didn't die on coach urban Meyer's watch which I think is an important distinction. He was fairly clearly involved in protecting an assistant coach who was credibly accused of domestic violence. He's going to be on the sideline this weekend. And I think that can pretty much be boiled down to the fact that urban Meyer has like a seventy nine and nine record and TJ Dirk. And I think was eleven and fifteen right. So no, I don't think that this is Representative of some shift in college at rice where everyone's going to try to do the right thing. Now, you know, every time something awful like this happens. I always find myself thinking, this is the tipping point. This is the moment. And I am always disappointed nor you're up the deadline passed for Steelers running back Leon.

Those stories are pure gold. So I can't follow those stories, but I do appreciate sharing the room with you with them in the same. Thank you very much. And it's, I am. As I am a fan of Verne's an equal fan of yours. I fed callous times the the time I spent with you on game day was a memory that it was. It was harrowing time, but it was a memory that will forever be etched in my in my memory Bank is one of the greatest in crazy, feel welcome because he brought to the show. I brought you a gift because throughout the years in the south, mostly we've took our show to the south. We were shower with thoughtful gifts, usually had some local importance. Kentucky was the most spittle or three bottles of bourbon on one visit in one hotel room, which was hard to top, but Auburn used to give us beautiful baked goods. They said the holiday. So this is from the Upper West side. It's heavy see cookie in their ways about half a pound, but it comes from a famous Baker, that's all the guidebooks and all the tourists come any work and they line up down the block. Don't ask me why. And my wife did not lineup, Jennifer knows the secret second bakery, which is the same. Place around the corner with. There's never aligned that the guidebooks don't have. So those are pretty sinful. Our chocolate walnut chocolate peanut butter might be one oatmeal in there. If you're not for the faint of heart, if you don't wanna go all in, but I hope you enjoy. Thank you very much. I really appreciate. That's what a wonderful, not bourbon, but it's it's, it's, I will never forget. I was. I was at Kentucky one day talking to you on game, then you told me about the bourbon. I said they barely. They brought me water, but went from the school one from the ethnic department and one for the football team. I wasn't argue with the crossover. There's a million things I wanna talk to you about. But if we mentioned game day and you host twenty five years, I, I mean that had to be as Verne's ride through through college football and golf that had to be one of the all-time journeys for anyone's career. I think that a lot of best things in life and best things in your professional life also are. Accidents and game day was an accident. I never went to SPN, tend to studio show certainly know it not a pre game college football show because there wasn't one that existed. When I first got ESPN, we sort of built it brick by brick, a group of people. Certainly Mr. Corso being cook in the early years, very prominent Craig. James had a had a big part in the early years of it. So we're proud of where it came from. You know, it was thing goes on life support. Nineteen ninety got on the road twenty five years ago this year at Florida state. Notre Dame in November was the first time on the road and that sort of catapulted it. But it was an incredible run. So miss a lot of things about it. But now I get to do exactly what I wanted to do when I was ten years old, dreaming of being this business which is conveying the excitement of live events, college football and tennis, and my case to an audience. And so it was time to say a game day was tough..

Ben Wright used it for Jack on the eagle at fifteen, and I said, no, interesting. Yeah. So I went back and looked at the tape and I could not believe it that Ben had said that. So subconsciously it was lurking right back here and another pretty good call tiger couple years later. Couple of other ones, Christian Leitner and who knows what else. But we have a couple of minutes with with Verne. All of this is in the book by the way that is available. Now, of course, on Amazon who knows where else in the. Final story's going to be a pretty obvious, but the tiger story which is also in golf is is in your great. It's on your greatest hits, gosh, shell. Yeah. I mean, he birdied the sixteenth hole in two thousand five. And a part of that story is that tiger at a one shot lead over Chris DiMarco and Chris put it twenty people. Oh, the whole, very makeable birdie but tiger inexplicably pulled an eight iron long and left. And he had no chance and Lanny Watkins was in eighteen at that time and Lonnie said on the air, he's going to be lucky if he can keep this inside Demarco's bowl. So that was the setup. And it was a probably ninety feet to the green, and then tiger put brakes on and took a right turn, and the closer got the more. Cited. I got. And then amazingly it sat on the lip of the Cup for one point, eight seconds. I majored that time and advertising age magazine estimated the accrued benefit to Nike was nineteen million dollars and in two thousand five dollars.
