The twenty-first limerick in the twenty one salute for the president joe biden. And i think we we do we do without a doubt have to do a a desert. there's no doubt we have to do. We have to do one of the ones. There was a young lady named hitchen who was scratching across in the kitchen. Her mother said rose. It's a crabs. I suppose she said yes in. The bug is rich in okay. So let's open the antique anglo. Ach so in the anglo and got this week we have some more foods We have the bird's-eye custody trifle So basically for all of our listeners. All around the world who did not travelers at the bottom. You have canned fruit. That has jello and jelly. And then there's a layer of English custard in the middle and then it's whipped cream on top and you have lashings of sherry. I remember many years ago. My mother will attest to this are is at school. And they were serving trifle and the gentleman who was serving it In gave me a dollop of this trifle. And i said i do. Hope this sherry in it sir. My mother always put sherry in the costed. Seventy one like sasa i one bird's-eye custard a trifle custard. And then i never remember this but capris did instant mashed potato now. I know that was an advert where there were basically robots doing the smash potato And they were making this robert sip-it like cement mashed potato and that was something that we ate in the as well instant mashed potato and then you had the delicious caramel banana flavored angel. Delight is basically for americans pudding and it's a powder mixed it with milk stirred it up. And then i think. Let it in the fridge for a little bit. And you have the most delicious pudding the caramel or or salted caramel whatever. It was and the banana flavor. Were out of this world. It was like heaven heaven in a little glass bowl and all the other children in the eighties. Were were eating that but the best of all legs gentlemen. Let me introduce you to via natta. Now i think we have via netter every sunday during During the summer is an ice cream. Basically and it was layers of creamy Vanilla ice cream with very slender pieces of dark chocolate spread all the way through. It was like an dot chocolate bars and chocolate on top. We've creamy vanilla ice cream and let it melted a little bit because you don't want to completely frozen and it was absolutely delicious and some of the people on twitter would say in celebration also the vetter always sought the annetta. Look like cuttlefish vice versa. thursday night always shopping night. Vinet gone by eight o'clock It was supposed to lost to wake lived on these during three power cut. Three power cuts. We just left them outside the floor out. Veneta was only served in a sunday dinner. it was a classier ice cream any other night. It was the awful vanilla from the plastic tub and a mate with trying to impress a girl invited around for a meal border veneta for pudding but left it in his bag and it started to melt. He genuinely believed that if he stuck it in the freezer reconfigure and it did not Every time we went to my aunt betty's it was the pudding choice then at a hands down hands up everybody who spent ages trying to cut through the bottom layer frozen chocolate before realizing it was the brown plastic tray. So there we go. That's the Antique anglo ark. This week we have veneta bird's-eye Trifle and we had the angel delight delicious dessert three marvelously. Nine hundred eighty s desserts. So thank you very much. Listening to the podcast is been a momentous week. The world changes week. Isn't it so nice to have boring game either. The boring Regiments have government going on as normal without hysteria twitter 'isms and everything else. So we had all twenty one limerick salute for the irish heritage of joe biden. And thank you very much. For listening to the podcast. This week we did ever touch on. Liz hurley's bikini marmalade exploits. We didn't touch on me trying to reintroduce the perfect baked potato. We have time next week. Folks we have plenty of time. We have all the time in the world to discuss The wondrous Baked potato and how you should cook it. abbas hurley making marmalade in a bikini. Which i think. I'm going to try this week and then i'm going to maybe a champagne marmalade in a in a in probably a man caney bar style this week and hopefully there won't be any smattering without a doubt. But it's been lovely to have you here Lovely to have you on the podcast. This week keep coming cauliflower cheese and cheese on twitter at keep coming cauliflower cheese on instagram likened subscribe. i'm across spotify apple music Also i'm a shoot in iheart radio pandora everywhere people everywhere and yes logging. Enjoy it I mean it may be something. Maybe i could send you a sleep at night. If you're insomniac it could be. It could be the you know the better than the sound machine. Although i have to say my love did get a sound machine and the crackling. Fire the crackling fire is absolutely delightful and it makes me sleep. The baby and i highly recommend the sound machine if you have trouble sleeping and is absolutely wondrous invention but that's been the podcast We all going to finish with a never shameless heaney poem. One of biden's favorites to to close the day. It's bell doug they just keep turning up and were ford as those foreign one eyed and benign. They lie about his house. Cranston's out of a ball to lift the lid of the pete and find this pupil dreaming of neolithic wheat when he stripped off blanket bog soft piled centuries. Open like a glib there.

Plant of The Week: Bristlecone Pine
"With a plan of the week mark is one that is of structure it is a good nature. And it's very specially grown here at my house. It is one of the oldest plants on earth as far as anybody knows they're they're assuming that between four and seven thousand years old. They won't even tell the public where the tree is out on the west coast and then there are others in the two thousand to four thousand year range. I don't know who can tell anybody's been living. That long probably is not able to write much but at the same time they can do borings they can do various tests bristlecone pine is normally in the eight to twenty foot. Now that makes it a small tree for for your consideration also on rare occasion given extreme age they'll hit up into the fifty foot plus range but very very very slowly. I happen to have one that It was ready unique. It fell off the truck when it was delivered to the nursery but forty years ago. and it's Got badly broken onside matter of fact or one side off so all of a sudden now. There's a plant this just The one eighty part. I thought well. Now here's the chance. I took it home brought it home. I finished proper pruning of it. And i planted on a west facing brick wall between my porch and garage door. It is presently now mrs about a forty year period. It's presently standing. Maybe six and a half to seven feet tall. It is leaning against the brick wall. The west afternoon sun gives it the brilliant son that it needs. Then it's the hang which. I was delighted with the way. It took a hold It's it's pretty dry. Under most overhangs and with sufficient inadequate initially it took a whole and it grew like crazy about four inches a year. and that that's one of the beauties of it it's a rather Sculptured tree now you. You could look at that as a well. Let you say any of several words for recommendations. But it's irregular it's decorative and in my case. I've trimmed it to stay along the wall now. It isn't much to trim probably every other year. I have to be sure nothing on the side. Branches are sticking out beyond about ten inches from the wall. I don't want it to be able to pull itself away from the wall. Should we get snow or ice. Or whatever on it I have only anchored in two places over the long haul and rest of. It is handled with pruning and i won. One landscape showed up at my house a long time ago and was lamenting the fact that he needed to plant exactly like that and i said well you can have mine at the right price. Yeah he said. What's the right price. And i told him and he said okay. I'll have a truck here monday morning. Whoa whoa not serious. Not certain beauty now you can grow it. let's just say you're regularly It does require son and then the beauty of it is you. Don't handle darn near any soil now not not excessively wet by any means it prefers out west growing it well. The big one is untold is a very rocky gravelly soil. Sandy When it rains which is not too often it will soak up enough water down deep enough that the roots can stay alive until the next rain which may be a whole year or some portion thereof so anyhow a very tolerant plant very very interesting and I highly recommend it. But don't don't don't plan where you need to get screening from the neighbor in short order because it isn't going to happen that way.
Where do words comes from? Find out in Washington, DC’s newly opened Planet Word museum
"The. Much anticipated planet word. Open today in. DC. Yes. Yes. Back in twenty seventeen DC mayor Muriel Bowser, and a team of advisers picks philanthropist and Friedman to restore the historic Franklin school building a gorgeous building. By the way, millions of dollars have gone into restoring the national historic landmark much of it. Friedman's own money to create a place where people can explore are evolving language. Now, that restoration didn't happen without a couple of shall we call them hiccups along the way city officials halted construction for quite some time after discovering. That the project's developer violated DC's strict historic preservation rules but all of that is wrapped up now in the museum is officially open to the public WMU senior editor gay. Bullard got an early look at the museum and he's here to take us on a little tour as you turn off K.. Street and walk into the courtyard of planet word you're showered in language.

This caption about cannibalism mine database says that cannibalism is usually very serious, but sometimes, it can be funny to take something serious and pretend it is not serious. This is called dark humor in the library.

Compact Nuclear Fusion Reactor Is ‘Very Likely to Work,’ Studies Suggest
"An article in the New York Times. And it says that the headline is compact nuclear fusion reactor is quote very likely to work studies suggest so and they give a couple examples. Of projects that are ongoing right now of people building nuclear fusion reactors, right. So the nuclear actors we have right now are fishing reactors and you gotTa have uranium and you know that creates a whole thing in the uranium market you must have uranium, right? That's the one thing we know how to how do inefficient reactor. And fuel is kind of expensive and it requires a lot of mining whereas the fuel for these fusion reactors is usually isotopes of hydrogen. So it's far more plentiful than uranium and it would generate fusion would generate less. Activity less waste and it's just less dangerous overall which is pretty cool. So. There have been significant hurdles to this people talked about it as kind of a pipedream many years ago that'll never happen, but but it's starting to happen. So there's this reactor called spark SPARC. It's being developed by researchers at MIT plus this spin off company like an MIT spinoff company of which there are many called Commonwealth fusion systems and the project is supposed to start next spring and take three or four years, which is like a really really short timetable i. mean there's been another project in southern France called it Er International Sirmo nuclear experimental reactor. It's been under construction since two thousand thirteen and it's it's actually not designed to actually generate electricity but it was expected to produce a fusion reaction by twenty, thirty five and I think they've poured like billions of dollars into that and and they've raised I think two, hundred million for this this spark project and they have a little picture. Little artist's rendering of what the reaction. Chamber look like and they show a little model of a human standing next to it and it's like I dunno makes the Reaction Chamber looks like it's about twenty feet tall and thirty feet wide. Whereas the the other thing is like the size of soccer field. Literally, they said they said, would be far smaller than the I. T. E. R. About the size of a tennis court compared with a soccer field. So. The that international project estimated to cost about twenty, two billion. So this could be really cold. This could if we can generate electricity with this hyper pundit fuel I, mean there's no shortage hydrogen oral, right? That's really cool and it. It makes an interesting point. If you read the work of an economist named Julian Simon he's always making this point about energy saying there may be a finite supply. Of crude oil when planet earth. Right there's there's probably a finance apply although we don't know that it is in constantly being generated deep in the bowels of the earth. But let's just say it's not let's say that's unlikely and there's a finite supply. So people are always predicting you know the end of the world we're going to run out of crude oil. Then what are we GONNA do? We gotTA DO SOMETHING And Simon's whole point was always that look. It's not the supply of the resource you're using it's the technology, the technology. Any given moment defines what the resources that you need, and if the resource changes from crude oil, which were digging way the hell down in the ground and using all this high pressure fracking technology and stuff, I? mean. That's a that's a massively expensive capital intensive thing. And of course, building a fusion reactor, probably would be Kaplan thing but then you know you build it and it. And I'm guessing that if you do it right, it'll electricity for at least decades if not a century or more and the fuel becomes not crude oil dug out of the ground, you know for lots of capital investment but hydrogen, which you don't have to dig out of the ground you know how they produce the hydrogen necessary I'm sure there's there's a lot more to this than a headline in the New York Times. But to me, it's a really cool example of this constant innovation that seems to trump so much that doesn't work in human society, right so much of the government meddling and downright foolishness, and you know we pollute the earth and we treat each other badly and and yet there are these these ongoing innovations that make life better for all of us.
The Amazon Formula To Sell 8-Figures & Beyond with Jeff Lieber
"Jeff say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know hey, what's up fire nation? Jeff Lieber and yeah let's see. I. Guess Back in two thousand fourteen kind of a funny story is I was working at nine to find nine to five job and what happened was is I was had that entrepreneurial bug I've been listening to podcasts like yours and other people. Knows you know looking at different business models and then I stumbled upon the Amazon business model at that time and I learned like the steps to source of product and all you're choosing what product to get started with and out of all the products in the world I was what would be the coolest sexiest product I could bragged my friends about and of all the products under the Sun I chose to buy a twenty foot. Container of Puppy pee pads or training dogs A. Matt and I spent almost like seventy percent of my life savings fifteen grand at the time on that container wired it to China had no idea the risks that were involved with that and luckily they did ship me a container of way too many puppy pads to sell and. Took me about a year to sell through that container. Thank goodness. It worked out and survived. So well, if they were on the market a few months ago I would have bought one Gaza we do have a a new puppy in our life is name as gas and we love him dearly and he has needed some pads as he's learned how to get to house train but I'm happy to say where we're past that stage for the most part now knock on wood but in fire. Nation as I shared in the introduction, we're talking about the Amazon formula to sell eight figures and beyond. So I mean you had that nine to five. Jeff. Back in two, thousand, fourteen, he decided to take the leap. So when exactly did you get started selling products on Amazon? I. Mean I know you said you start with a puppy pads move onto the next point from that and how did that experience actually lead you to starting turnkey product management? Yes. Of intention was not to start turnkey. Product management that came a few years later. So luckily, like I said that product ended up selling decently well, but I ended up launching additional pet products and then my sister had an idea for baby products brands. So we launched that and my friend's dad had an idea for with an awesome patented dog toy. So we launched on kickstarter and Bernard up on that and then So all of a sudden I was doing a ton of stuff and then had a few friends from college who Had Awesome products. They did you know sunglasses and wash on kickstarter and we're doing awesome on shop and sales channels like that. But they were struggling on Amazon and they saw me having success with Elaine product like bubby bads and they're like, why can't we do that? So I I ended up helping them and they just said, can you just manage it for us? Can you just do it what will pay you and I was like sure and so that was really the first consulting client. But. It was just a friend and it was fun. You know working with them and ended up growing them to over six figures in their first year and then they referred a friend and they referred a friend and now I had five clients as well in addition to all the brands. So needless to say I was. Almost envious of my previous nine to five job that I had quit because I couldn't do it all and I was like man, why did I even quit I'm like so stressed out in overwhelmed in managing way too much stuff and so I just said what what really would make me the happiest and what am I the best that and that was selling on Amazon. So what I did was decided to sell my stakes out of all may their companies in about nine month period and solely went in all in on turnkey product management gave it an official name and That was about three or four years ago and built a team hired me on my sister, my cousin, a bunch of great great people along the way, and now we're helping a lot of companies to scale their their businesses on Amazon seven and eight figures, and beyond
Wildfire Ignition is Solvable
"Right. Now, if I look out my window, I, see a very Brown's guy. It looks like it's twilight but you know it's ten o'clock in the morning and it should be a bright and sunny grew up in California I'm Californian for almost my entire life. And you know I have many graduate students in my lab at Stanford that come here from all over the place and they sort of assumed that it's normal. And I had to tell him now I mean I don't remember this ever when I was growing up I mean you'd hear about. Fires every once in a while on the on the news but it certainly in the last couple years has become a completely regular thing. So I can certainly understand your eagerness to to help solve this problem, solve ables about how you're GonNa do it what's your solvable for dealing with these fires? Many many millions of gallons of retardant. So used every year right the iconic red stuff you see being dropped from planes. And that's really only ever used reactively. So once a fire has started. Our main approach is trying to stop them before they start. Now one of the limitations that we're trying to address is if you want to go and pre treat areas where you know fires are going to start. One of the primary limitations of the current hardens that they don't stay where you put. A high wind or heavy do is enough to wash the retardants off the vegetation. So they stopped working off. So what we sought to do was to to not create a new retardant let's say 'cause we're using the same active fire retarding agent but instead tweaking the performance additives so that the retarded stays on the vegetation. Throughout the duration of the fire season. So you can spray one time in June. Let's say and have protection against fire starts. All the way through until the rainy season comes. So can you describe this stuff? What's it like if you touch it how does it feel? It's not quite a lot of people think of Jello and they think of a gel in it's not thick like that. It looks Kinda like cream really So what we developed in my lab improves the adherence. So more of what you spray actually sticks on the vegetation and it improves the durability. So it's really only once you get into the ratings season that the materials will wash away and simply biodegrade on the soil. Yeah. The evidence in I mean you know it works yes. So we did pilot scale studies to test ourselves and we tried to burn it It was actually. Kinda fun because you know we would do the experiments and and see the fire would not actually ignite even through extensive weathering. So we rain to half an inch on it and let it sit in the environment for six weeks. The treated grass, it wouldn't burn. So some of the folks that we're working with started just drawing funny faces in the grass with the with a torch because even if you took a torch to, it wouldn't ignite. Wow. Then we were able to step it up and actually do some full scale pilot studies in and treated a number of roadside segments in southern, California many of them are small but every one of these ignitions requires crews to go out and put him out. So they use a lot of resources that take a firefighter time that they could be spending doing things like controlled burns. And we reported that they were zero fires in the treated areas Eric, this targeted intervention, right? You don't need to treat the whole forest. You just go where the fires most likely to happen. Yeah. Exactly. I think that's An important misconception that I see a lot of places know we're not talking about treating the entire forest like you would with a controlled burn. We're talking about treating only right where the fires likely to start, and so if you envision a roadside where if you have a car that overheats and it pulls over into the grass, right next to the roadway or somebody throws a cigarette out of their window, it only lands right next. To the roadway, and so you only have to treat right there and what's beautiful about that is that let's say a twenty foot wide treatment protects all of the forest beyond it. Yeah and this cream that you're spraying is it is it safe for plants and trees and birds and animals and people I mean something about the look of that read stuff coming out of planes I always think I would not like to be underneath it. Yeah. So we when we were developing this, we specifically designed it to be safe. That was one of the the primary concerns because anything you're putting out in the environment, you want to be one hundred percent certain that it's safe and effective. We designed it using cellulose, adjust plant matter, and a thing called Colloidal Silica, which you can think of as Nanna sand. So it's just primarily sand and
One Priceless Lesson We Often Forget About Love and Life
"One priceless lesson we often forget about love and life by Mark Chernoff mark and Angel Dot Com. Everything, we need. Jose's wife Maria was born in a one bedroom stand alone home on the outskirts of Playa del Carmen Mexico. was a fine little home, but her father Oscar wanted a real house. So he worked two jobs a sixty hour week factory job, and then another twenty hours or so a week as carpenter. Oscar say fifty percent of his income for over a decade to build his family of four bedroom house like the ones in the better parts of town he put half his family savings and a low community bank and he talked the other half away in a safe he kept hidden on their property. On the morning Oscar plan to break ground on his family's new house, the local community bank shuttered stores just hours after law enforcement declared the bank was running an illegal and uninsured Ponzi scheme ninety percent of the deposits Oscar made were lost. Then the very next day. The little home was robbed at gun point in exchange for his family's safety Oscar for the rest of the money he had hidden in safe. In the short window of thirty six hours, the family lost a vast majority of their savings from years of hard work the night for the first time as Mother Olga watched Oscar cry. She approached Oscar with their infant daughter cradled and rocking in her arms and said, it's just money minister just a house. We've so much more than that. We have a truly loving home. Oscar looked at Olga, dried his eyes and nodded his head in agreement. He spent the rest of the night with his baby daughter holding her tight to his chest reminding himself that he might not be able to give his family, the house he dreamed of, but he can continue to give them a truly loving home. And for the nine years that followed Maria grew up in that small loving one bedroom home. After the first year, a sister Andrea joined her after the third year brother Roberto showing to the memories share of that time are truly heartwarming for example, everyday. Of Maria Early Grade School years she remembers her father coming home from work just before dinner giving her and her siblings, individual hugs and kisses, and then asking them to questions. More you loved. Do you have love in your heart? All three shoulder would nod their head smiling then he'd gather them all up in a big group. Hug and call out Metoo we are blessed. We have everything we need. With that house. Even. Though Oscar sincerely believed what he said to his children. He was still pursuing his dream of building a larger and more comfortable house for his family and nine years after losing all of their savings Oscar. Once again, saved enough money to begin building that new house twenty feet behind their little one bedroom home he started with framing out the foundation of the kitchen them Ria's mother had always quietly dreamed of. One Cement Block at a time paycheck by paycheck. Slowly, but steadily built a house he'd come. So close to building nearly a decade beforehand I a kitchen, a large family room and two bathrooms than a master bedroom bedrooms for each of the children and a nice covered front patio. In two thousand, two, win Jose Maria and start falling in love with her Oscar was still building that house. Soon. Thereafter, he put the last few finishing touches on it. The, entire family celebrated for weeks on end and Nowadays Oscar Olga still celebrate holidays and special occasions at the House with all three of their children and their children's families several times a year. But, the stories prizes lesson has nothing to do with that house. Just, a bonus the first day Jose met Marie his family. He noticed how sincerely loving and happy the whole family was. He praised Oscar for the beautiful family. He had asked him what the secret was. Oscar. Spent hours sharing interesting heartfelt stories about why his family was the luckiest one in the world. Never, shared all the details about how their house was built. In fact, after years of knowing Maria and her family traveling with them and even living with them for a short time, no one ever thought to tell Jose about how their family's house came to be. They ask questions about the construction few occasions and he received replies about the construction it until after Jose Maria got married and close on their own first house in Miami. Florida that Oscar took Jose for a long walk. He s does a about the details and Jose excitedly shared information about their new neighborhood in the House Oscar listened intently smiled and then finally he shared the story you've just heard.

Why The Clippers Collapsed
"It felt like something was happening. There is something about the emotion. Past. Was Now you've? Seen. This isn't a story. Be The athlete. It stays with you. There Sam first of all, where are you right now I'm in the NBA bubble a new home away from home inside my hotel room and Casillas number to think twenty seven, twenty two is the room number if anybody wants to. Send packages or love one of the two But yeah, this is this is why these days. How has your bubble experience been so far to be honest committed it's gotten better. The airport experience was felt more stressful than I thought it went I actually had to masks because the end ninety five that US was one of those that does not protect the other person. So I put a cloth masks over that and then I ended up doing facial as well and it was the right move except man that first day travel psychologically I, remember just getting. Into, the hotel room just going Oh, boy that was the longest day of travel. I've ever had because mentally you can't smile at people. You can't talk to people that got me off to a tough start and then it's a nice room but the windows don't open you can't have a window open. There's no balcony unfortunately, the floor when I got here had not been cleaned so I would pay some walk and have bare feet in at the end of the. Day My feet would be black and so that mentally can after four five, six days you're sitting there going man I feel like I'm in this kind of dirty box. The other stuff that the players have talked a lot about is that even if the accommodations are fairly nice, it's just the psychological restriction and lack of freedom and knowing that you cannot go where you want to go. You can go on a walk around the perimeter, but if you go that. Direction and if you even go ten feet past the perimeter, you'll get seven days a quarantine. You know the other stuff also as it's just the interpersonal relationships and the people that everybody left behind you know whether you have a family or a girlfriend or a boyfriend whatever it is all that stuff adds up to a pretty challenging landscape had a productive couple of days. I'm going to carve out a little mental health time and there's a big pick ballgame happening. This afternoon with me in a few writers. I'm getting there. Well. So speaking of all of these challenges as in the bubble, let's talk about this epic meltdown of the team, a lot of people expected to at all the clippers. mcnuggets Oregon on time La. Twenty point lead with two ten remaining. This is absolutely shocking. What went wrong with the La Against Denver I think the broadview for me would be that we always felt like this team was potentially far too transactional if that makes sense. Somebody the other day, use the word mercenaries where it's kind of like I collide Leonard Paul. George have a ton of talent and they looked very good for most of the regular season. But in the bubble, what you saw was a team that was still learning one another in a team that wants the pressure continued to be applied by these other very good playoff teams. They did not have the fabric, the togetherness that connectivity and leadership to get through that. In Game Seven, I sat about twenty feet away from the clippers bench and that meant that I watched a clippers bench that with around seven minutes to go and I think they were down around thirteen at the time they just completely look like they gave up. This is what your best players got to elevate their game. And the clippers have disappointed asphalt. From the field. Two points in the fourth quarter. And frustrated, the stock of the heads went down the talking stopped you had all of a sudden whereas earlier in the game there was a flood of support and clapping from guys on the bench and intensity and passion. You had the golf clap clippers owner Steve bomber feeling like limber fans right now. I am absolutely shocked. Give this Denver Nuggets team a lot of credit. have taken the fight away from the clippers. deservedly. So the leadership thing is what they need to analyse going forward because as amazing Kawhi is he's incredibly quiet. We know that and Paul George I don't think has really ever found his leadership voice maybe that's just not the type of personality he is. But if you compare them to that other team in La, you know you've got a dude and Lebron whose so fogel and raise on Rhonda who sell vocal and I think if I had to pinpoint one of the biggest factors that kind of led to their demise I think it would be that. you and our colleague Yvonne Boo reported on chemistry issues within the clippers back. In January, did you get the sense that those issues were still present inside the bubble? So I don't I wish I had a better pulse on that. You Doc was kind of the main voice that I heard. I went to to other practices where I would listen closely to what doc had to say, and one thing that struck me was he would very candidly talk about how they were still learning each other as a team in the middle of the playoffs I look at the whole picture and I realize we haven't been together we haven't had a lot of time together. So I get it. You had the old guard, the Lou, Williams Pat Beverley mantras hair let group that did some pretty special things and the playoffs last year and was gritty and would play forty eight minutes a night if you wanted them to. Now, they tried to integrate with Choline Paul who came with the very different script and a very different style and combining the old and the new had its fits and starts, and certainly in the end, it seems like a lot of those things out. Cherishing teams are. The more chemistry for this group. D, better. I think that's really the tell at a tape with the season just didn't have enough time together. Paul George has been vocal about the mental toll of being in the bubble a couple of weeks ago. Paul George talked about being in a dark place whatever. The bubble got the best of me. I was just in a dark place. A really wasn't here. I checked out and SAM. You've gotten a taste of what it's like to be an isolation down there. We've just talked about that. Do you feel like Paul George and the clippers were maybe hit harder by the challenges of playing in this Environment Paul for sure I mean I applaud him for his willingness to speak openly about it, and then only he knows where his head was at in the later part of the series but I'll never forget I mean right corner. He shoots that three and it clicks off the backboard George. Why office to side of the backboard left corner he barely draws rim on three George Corner three way off short. Gets the rebound Paul George. Now, just to for ten from downtown they were more shook I don't know how to explain it than any NBA team I've ever seen in a crucial moment. I've never seen anything like that. So I don't know how Paul's State of mind came into play but I do think the clippers had a really hard time getting through all that stuff. So Sam what comes next for the clippers, they have a lot of strong personalities and obviously some divisions between them can they hold it together and be titled Favorites Again Next Year you know to be determined. There's already a little bit of a growing sense or at least questions around the League of are they is there any chance they would think about blowing this out because you got to remember to why Paul signed deals they're up next summer they can get out and and when they came to the clippers. People felt like it was unofficially you know a lifetime contract because those guys have the personal connection to the area but I think we're quickly getting reminded that if the basketball situation is not right and if their work life is negative, then you absolutely can't rule out the possibility of them changing their minds. Year and maybe sounding somewhere else you know the NBA rules are when you have a superstar a year away from free agency YOU'RE GONNA probably have to take those phone calls from other teams if you're not getting assurances and promises from those players that they're not going anywhere. So they've got a lot of questions to have answered and it's going to be painful for them to watch this Lakers nuggets series knowing how close they came.
Remote Workers are Building Tiny, Gorgeous Backyard Offices
"Now, here's a pandemic inspired trend and a business opportunity very few saw coming the backyard office. With the kids and the spouse at home for months, remote workers are struggling with all that new found and occasionally unwanted intimacy so more and more of us are building tiny offices in our yards. are yards that's right and while the smallest of them may be no more than one hundred square feet or so they can be pretty plush while some handy. Do It yourself or designing and building these standalone getaways themselves others are purchasing stylish prefabricated tiny buildings and that's boosting growth for some existing shed companies and sparking some entrepreneurs to start new companies to fill the sudden demand among them modern shed studio shed, and the one with our favorite name. Some elbow. Room I mean for crying out loud elbowroom room right first. Let's get one thing out of the way. The opportunity to build a separate fully electrified heated and air conditioned office in your yard is a privilege that many just don't have for one building an extra room in the yard requires you to have a yard begin with still it's typically far cheaper than adding a room to your house. Those costs can run more than one hundred, thousand dollars at kangaroo. Systems Kangaroo get a prefab builder out of Waco Texas. The cost of their smallest unit called Quick Room starts at five thousand dollars. Modern sheds prices started about ten thousand for a one hundred square foot shed not surprisingly prices begin climbing as customers expand the size and especially the charm of the buildings at a bathroom in your budget expands further that said privacy is obviously valuable these days which accounts for the sales growth prefab shed companies have been experiencing since. The pandemic emerged Mike Caning CEO of Colorado based Studio Shit Tolsey NBC that by May, the company sales had quadrupled over last year. All signs pointed toward that growth accelerating at modern shed sales were up twenty five percent. June as the summer wore on modern shed general manager Tim vaccine interest gauged by download.

This year, you're more likely to put a desk and a couch in your new tiny building than a shovel and a rake unlike sheds of old. These tiny buildings can look like decorators dreams. They arrive prebuilt with fully insulated walls covered with wall, wood, paneling, picture windows, Cedar Shingles and other decorator touches make these miniature houses well worthy of Pinterest and instagram. And while they can be expensive there also a good investment for people considering Resale CNBC says, a Home Office has shot to the top of the must-have list for new home buyers. It's also a lot easier to build separate tiny offices in your yard than it is to add onto your home because of the prefab nature of these products, Mike Caney, the studio shed. CEO told the new. York Times. They've had a building helicopter to a remote in Alaska and even brought up freight elevators in New York. Providing you don't need a helicopter to take delivery of your new office. It can take only weeks to have your new refuge built once delivered, you'll need a crew to install it and hookup electricity and so forth or you'll need to put in some muscle of your own and keep in mind you might need a city permit or at least approval from an Hoa one other piece of advice for entrepreneurs listening this could be a trend worth. Jumping on if you have construction background and access to supplies, designers and labor. That's what Aaron Callaghan. Co Founder, and CEO of some elbow room did with her husband. Patrick. Callahan, she recently started some elbow room in San Antonio there blanketing the area with marketing and expect to make three quarters of a million dollars. This year like modern hsieh studio shed prices started about ten dollars per square foot but back to buying one of these cute little refuges.

"There are a great number of plant well, almost every plant has some sort of fall color. The ones that would give her read though starting with a fairly sizable vibe Burnham called Winter Third W.

"This is senior editor patron mccomb. Today I'm joined by Rob Watson digital brand manager. Hey. there. Kylie Jacques Design Editor. Hello. And producer. Jeff. Rose I. Well, it is a pleasure to see you all this morning. Thanks again for joining me. Pleasure. So I want to start off lending briefly Kylie someone commented on Itunes with regard to the podcast, and they said some very nice things many more about us. So you should definitely take a look at that. I want to encourage all of our listeners to please review the podcast it really helps us out both in terms to know that we're doing a good job and to help others find it. So if you do that for me, I would be super appreciative. That com that was dated on July twenty ninth but prior to that the most recent one was like the end of April. So. Get to. Work People. And thank you in advance I. Look At. Rob, what are you doing? What have I been doing? Well, you know. I. Keep talking about that Porch but kind of done with there's nothing new about. Other night other than last night i. just sat out there and enjoyed a glass of wine even though it's not completely done yet just sat there and watch the sunset. So drinking hooch on your new deck is the best thing ever. But actually the next project I'm not actually the next project because it's a big one is It's been so hot and Muggy lately that for years on and off have been like do do we want to pool problem is we're very particular about our garden and I would I would have wanted my daughter was little thrown up crappy pool in the backyard just to cool off but it doesn't fit into the. Landscape design apparently of our property. So So We've been totally disagree I went above ground. Pool absolutely. Fantastic. As. Long as I picked, the right would grain right? Well, I, I was going to get I was GONNA. Actually just plant some. Or Tall. Grass in front of it so that you know you can kind of hide it but the problem is I just don't have the space for that. So we've been talking about we've a narrow lot with a twenty foot setback from both sides and it's sixty feet wide. So that means we could just put something in the middle of our yard and there's not very many places to do that. We found this one garden bed that we're willing to take a chunk out of. And possibly dig in and put build a concrete soaking pool. So it's something that it's something that. Is Basically. Yeah. Basically, it's bigger than a hot TUB, but it's not something you can swim laps in. and. and. Probably. Even. Though seems kind of a bit labour-intensive thing. Probably do it with pouring slab in doing a block wall and plastering the block wall in doing stone coping in behind the why you think that sounds labor intensive. Well, actually I had. I had this great idea My. Daughter about how hard liens working on your property tactic. Even offered her a little bit more money than you're paying per hour. Maybe she could dig. Don't you dare? Rolling. So it would probably stick up about it would be right in the lawn. So probably stick up about sixteen inches out of the lawn with a stone top on it so that it would act like a garden benches well and Maybe That or not your own disaster at well, I've actually been just searching around for ideas on. Pinterest in elsewhere and phones mice examples have found some one example of some women in. The. Netherlands who built one by herself and his. All this cool stuff. All these cool details that she did is basically the same methods of construction and one of the coolest things was that Like well, this too small swim in this thing and those those jet pools you can swim in place or like thousands of dollars. While this woman bought thing, it's a it's a harness that you hook to some d rings in the corner of the pool and it doesn't same thing holds you back. Easy swam against this idea the harness. For A jet. You don't need a jet you swim in place to harness keep you from swimming forward You know I'll help dig thing if I can use it now on that. Okay. Sure to harness. Of wacky and honestly the Dickens give me really easy because. All the sand is going to be wheelbarrow downhill from the site and my my ground is all it's like a thirty. Patients one.

The sharp six inch long beak a subsequent investigation by their parents, uncovered tracks that had three toes and were eight inches across that same year. In San Antonio Texas three elementary school teachers teachers. Now saw what they described as a PTERODACTYL swooping low over their cars. As they drove.

"Parents are naturally worried for their children and it doesn't seem to take much to send them into a tizzy. and. It's not just parents. We as people are pretty prone to overreacting to the first piece of information we receive. Modern media makes the spreading of these new urban legends basically effortless. But false panics and hoaxes are far from a new invention. Always. been with us. Most people know the story surrounding Orson Welles radio play the war of the worlds by H. G. Wells. No relation it was presented in the form of a newscast detailing the invasion of earth by beings from another world clearly bent on our destruction. Listeners thought the broadcast was real. There was mayhem in the streets as as many as a million people fled their homes or armed themselves and made ready to fight off the alien hordes. We know all about the panic that this radio play cost it was in all the papers. Therein lies the problem. Newspapers of the day greatly exaggerated the situation. To begin with not that many people were tuned in to the Mercury Theatre on the air that evening only two percent of households with radios even heard the play. which repeatedly identified itself as such during the performance. Some CBS radio affiliates even cut away from the broadcast in favor of local programming further shrinking the potential audience. Most people were listening instead to the ratings, Juggernaut, ventriloquist at Gergen. I still fail to understand how a ventriloquist act really worked on the radio. If it makes you happy. So. Why then if so few people. and. Fewer still were confused by it did newspapers separately and independently make the situation sound much worse than it was. They were motivated by fear not of aliens but of the radio. The wireless radio was the first real threat to the superiority of the newspaper as the public's primary source of information. Reporters and editors saw this as an opportunity to prove to advertisers and regulators that radio was dangerous irresponsible and not to be trusted. A similar thing happened in. England. Twelve years earlier with a fictitious report that an angry mob of unemployed workers were running amok in London looting and destroying everything in sight. The National Gallery had been ransacked the Savoy hotel blown up. The houses of parliament were being attacked with trench mortars and the Big Ben. Clock, tower had been raised to the ground. Like any good radio play? The narration was accompanied by sound effects. Of Fear Few people did take to the streets, even fleeing past the famous buildings that had been reportedly destroyed while others desperately clogged police phone lines. The BBC tried to ease tensions by reminding people that the report was a comedy skit entitled broadcasting in the barricades. anding their message with London is safe Big Ben is still chiming and all his well. You can't trust the BBC at least we can still rely on armed forces, radio. People fought until nineteen, forty seven. When in May W v TR in Tokyo began to issue a series of bulletins about a twenty foot high monster that had risen from the sea to lay waste to the area. Bullets were useless against this dragon like creature listeners could hear terrified shrieks, people shouting orders over bullhorns, heavy weapons and Massu vehicles rolling by. When the beast reached downtown and the intrepid reporter who provided the play by play snuck closer, the monster opened its mouth. And congratulated T.. R.

But false panics and hoaxes are far from a new invention. Always. been with us. Most people know the story surrounding Orson Welles radio play the war of the worlds by H. G. Wells. No relation it was presented in the form of a newscast detailing the invasion of earth by beings from another world clearly bent on our destruction. Listeners thought the broadcast was real. There was mayhem in the streets as as many as a million people fled their homes or armed themselves and made ready to fight off the alien hordes. We know all about the panic that this radio play cost it was in all the papers. Therein lies the problem. Newspapers of the day greatly exaggerated the situation. To begin with not that many people were tuned in to the Mercury Theatre on the air that evening only two percent of households with radios even heard the play. which repeatedly identified itself as such during the performance. Some CBS radio affiliates even cut away from the broadcast in favor of local programming further shrinking the potential audience. Most people were listening instead to the ratings, Juggernaut, ventriloquist at Gergen. I still fail to understand how a ventriloquist act really worked on the radio. If it makes you happy. So. Why then if so few people. and. Fewer still were confused by it did newspapers separately and independently make the situation sound much worse than it was. They were motivated by fear not of aliens but of the radio. The wireless radio was the first real threat to the superiority of the newspaper as the public's primary source of information. Reporters and editors saw this as an opportunity to prove to advertisers and regulators that radio was dangerous irresponsible and not to be trusted. A similar thing happened in. England. Twelve years earlier with a fictitious report that an angry mob of unemployed workers were running amok in London looting and destroying everything in sight. The National Gallery had been ransacked the Savoy hotel blown up. The houses of parliament were being attacked with trench mortars and the Big Ben. Clock, tower had been raised to the ground. Like any good radio play? The narration was accompanied by sound effects. Of Fear Few people did take to the streets, even fleeing past the famous buildings that had been reportedly destroyed while others desperately clogged police phone lines. The BBC tried to ease tensions by reminding people that the report was a comedy skit entitled broadcasting in the barricades. anding their message with London is safe Big Ben is still chiming and all his well. You can't trust the BBC at least we can still rely on armed forces, radio. People fought until nineteen, forty seven. When in May W v TR in Tokyo began to issue a series of bulletins about a twenty foot high monster that had risen from the sea to lay waste to the area. Bullets were useless against this dragon like creature listeners could hear terrified shrieks, people shouting orders over bullhorns, heavy weapons and Massu vehicles rolling
Making Tiny Design Work Better with Lina Menard
"All right. I am here with Linda, Menard. Linda. Is a natural co-conspirator who has lived out her own questions around intentional living less stuff and happiness she has resided in a travel trailer, Yurt backyard cottage and three and counting tiny houses on wheels. Routed through a background in sustainable design, build and urban planning. Linda. Also has a pension for experiential learning and healthy communities. She has found her niche nestled between small spaces, collaborative education, and Community Planning Linda Minard. Welcome to the show. I even thanks to be here. Glad to have you. You know we we were talking just a minute ago, and you're like, what? What should we talk about and I had written down all of these kind of disparate things 'cause I just things that we've talked about in the past, and then of course, in in total Lyneham and art style, you just dropped the perfect perfect insight which was designed, build versus build design What do you mean by that? Yeah Well what I mean by it is that a lot of times when people get excited about their tiny house journey. People. Coming. Out. From. One. Of Two. Different. Directions. One direction is the okay. So I'm going to figure out exactly what it is that I want and then figure out exactly how I'm going to build it. And there are other people who are like. I'm a wire or at least I, WanNa be wire and so I'm gonNA figure it out as I go. I'm going to start building and as I build my design going to emerge. Or maybe the alternative to that. The other kind of like you know like plan b version to is. I'm going to have somebody else told the shell or I'm GonNa you know by a partially built house. Or I'm going to buy a little shack or cabin or whatever else is already out there in the world I mean is already built and I'm going to redesign it or or renovate it there. So I think those are you know kind of two approaches to different ways people can go about. Getting the sort of little face it's going to be on sweet on. Is there. Is there a wrong answer? Are they both like valid paths to take? I think they are valid path to take I think that it often depends on kind somebody's quality anyway like are you the sort of person who likes to jump in with both feet and figure it out and be on your toes a little bit? Are you somebody who's really thoughtful and you take your time and you put things on a certain order You know I tend to lean a little bit more towards the design build. Side of things, but I've also gotten myself into projects where. There and figuring out what to do with it. From there I've done renovation work and really enjoyed that some ways it's really nice to not have the blank slate because then you've got something to work with got some constraints and the constraints I think create and some juice penis in terms of getting creative juices flowing because you can't do anything you want you actually have to work within the boundary So I think it's kind of a personality thing I would say the biggest. issue. Is I contact somebody. You. Know they've scheduled a consultation or maybe they're you know in one of my design classes which I teach with you superfund and they say, yeah, I've got a trailer and now we have to figure out what we're going to build. And that I think is a bummer because if you. Give yourself the constraint of the trailer. Before really figuring out what it is that you want. Then, you can't go back and take the trailer bigger or. So I think that can be about are sometimes because we don't necessarily a lot of us. I think especially in America and other Westernized countries we're not necessarily Subaru engage with things that are hands on like building. A sense of scale and so learning how to work down learning, how to design something so that going to suit your need. Is going to help you figure out like Oh. Do I really need twenty four feet or thirty feet or twenty feet or whatever that is if you're building on wheels and the thing that you're actually even on a foundation. You know the trailer sometimes like Oh you know I bought the trailer. Now I forgot to sign I think that can be a bummer because drink but even if people are are working with with the ground structure. Their limitations on a lot of areas where you can and can't build stuff. You don't have any sense yet of what it is you want then you might end up purchasing property where you can't build what you want whether that's that you've purchased the house thinking you could do a basement after dwelling. You know little like basement apartment and you don't have the clearance for it. So I think it goes back and forth I, don't think there's a wrong way right way but I think that understanding what sort of constraints you can live with. Is going to help you to be happier as you're working.
Coronavirus Q&A: Running Outside and Petting Dogs
"Let's get to the questions. We got so many from our list. We picked a few and show them to you. So we're going to have you answer them right now and provide color commentary throughout you. Sure. All right first question? What's the deal with running? I've heard inflicting things. What's the likelihood of? It means bread of someone runs past me okay. So this question makes total sense to me because I think there were some scary kind of initial studies around this. Man where it says runners could spread it for twenty feet and they were these vectors but that was kind of mildly debunked. Yeah. It was kind of dismissed them and there are parts of it that made sense but it wasn't considered to be like actually a real world scenario that was tested and it's really hard test that so. When I think about running, of course, it depends on what space you're in, right. So outside in fresh air going to have a lower risk if you're somebody if you wearing a mask if that person's wearing a mask, all of those things kind of factor in and as best we can tell Sam as a you know a somewhat general rule. The majority of transmission happens in close indoor situations where you're spending a good bit of time together. That is why it is absolutely essential to be wearing a mask especially inside it doesn't mean that there's no risk if you're outside and there's only a brief encounter but it's reduced. Running and you pass somebody for a second. I'm not super worried about that situation now they cough and sneeze, and you just slam right into it. Say I'm that's a different scenario. Go Home, wash your face, wash your hands but the you know the experts that I'm talking to are not super worried about that situation art follow up question for you on this topic as a runner. I have heard mixed messaging about wearing a mask. When you run some folks say well, you're outside you're moving fast, just dodge even stay away from people others are like you have to have it on all the time when I've done both. But when I've tried to run with a mask on my entire five miles I ended up with the wet mask and it's like I'm waterboarding myself. Yeah absolutely I mean, of course, wearing a mask if you can is a good situation and if you're in a really really busy city and you can't get away from people if you're like constantly dodging people I actually do think it's probably a good idea. But if you're in an area where it's a little bit more open, I would say it's probably okay not to wear a mask when you're running A. Anytime, you have the choice between them a mask is going to be a safer bet but if you can get up really early before somebody's out there or go somewhere else in and it's you know like either I'm not gonNA run or I'm gonNA run without a mask. Then I think that's a decision you have to make. So you're saying we should be doing three am runs in cemeteries. Sam Stop. Phone. It in get up at three am and got it done. Get it done. Get it done. Yes. Next. Question from a listener about animals can I say hi to other people's Dogs Oh yeah, Samson is this question for Melissa is this question? This question is from Sanders. From. My Heart. And make sure they're OK. Okay. So I looked this up because I wasn't sure and the CDC has weirdly complicated guidance on this. So really some pets like dogs or cats have caught Kovic from humans, but the CDC says the risk of dogs than giving Cova to people is considered low like there's no evidence that you can get it from the for or the hair of other pets. But one of those owners that kisses your dog on the mound, I was just about to say. But this because the CDC still says, you should not interact with dogs outside their household. So I'm like man I guess the CDC is worried about people getting pet saliva in their mouths, but you shouldn't be mcing on somebody else's dog anyway Sam. If you see a dog and the dog is really really really cute. Oh my God you part of the Kids Sam Palmer's the kiss I cannot miss the kids you are. You're going to have to definitely miss the kiss for a while so but so but I will say, honestly, you know briefly a dog has come up to me and the dog park it's onerous faraway I pet it. I'll say I have pet but the. Official guidance lead those dogs alone. Sam. Understood understood.

A big remaining question is just how significant these food. Sources are John herbs studies wolf behavior with the Minnesota DNR which is not affiliated with this research. It's just a question of it wasn't a nice extra meal, or or does it have actual numeric influence on the wolf population, or the pack. Researchers plan to pursue some of those. Larger questions by placing GPS collars on.
