On this edition of Parallax Views, there's a rich and storied history of resistance to war profiteering in the United States of America. Joining us to unpack this overlooked history is Hunter DeRensis, communications director for BringOurTroopsHome.US and author of the recent article "Merchants Of Death: From the Nye Committee to Joe Kent, the fight against war profiteering is a constant struggle". in The American Conservative. We begin by discussing the impetus behind writing the article, namely Hunter's interest in public perception of the military-industrial complex. In contrast to today, where military-industrial complex is used as a non-loaded off-hand to refer to companies like Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, Hunter says that a century ago there was a broad public resistance to and skepticism of the military-industrial complex and, more specifically, war profiteering. We then delve into the history of this public resistance going back to the Progressive Era and WWI. In this regard we discuss JP Morgan, then the largest investment bank in the world and often referred to in those days as "The House of Morgan", and DuPont in relation to war profiteering in the WWI era. Additionally we discuss the use of taxation against war profiteers and figures who led the charge against war profiteering like the politicians William Jennings Bryan, George Norris, Robert LaFollette, Gerald Nye, and Hiram Johnson. Later on in the conversation we discuss the bestselling 1930s book Merchants of War that sought to expose war profiteering, left and right opposition to war profiteering, the Nye Commitee investigation into war profiteering, Theodore Roosevelt and war hawks, Smedley Butler and War is a Rocket, historian Charles Austin Beard, the costs of WWI, the near universality of sentiment against war profiteering in the interwar period, the early feminist and suffragist movements connection to the pacifist and antiwar movements in the early 20th century, Hunter's involvement with BringOurTroopsHome.US and the fact that many veterans oppose U.S. nation-building war today, the profits made by Eugene G. Grace of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation off war, the extent and scope of the Nye Committee, American nationalism, the attacks on Gerald Nye by figures like Sen. Tom Connally and Sen. Carter Glass, war profiteers funding both sides of conflicts, secret treaties involving Woodrow Wilson and WWI, the Appropriations Commitee and the shutdown of the Nye Commitee, why the Nye Committee fell short of its ultimate goals, arms manufactures post-WWI and the rise of the military-industrial complex, the post-WWII permanent war economy, why libertarians should oppose the military-industrial complex, the impact and legacy of the Nye Commitee, Dan Crenshaw and Tom Cotton not being representative of the supermajority of veterans' views on U.S. wars and foreign policy, and more!
Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and many of us dread the thought of this although not as much as the individuals we cover this week. Dana tells us another story based around the infamous Citadel. This time she focuses on Harry De La Roche Jr. a family annihilator who blamed his death rampage on the hazing he experienced while attending the college. Nydia tells us about the Dupont de Ligonnes family murder and the mysterious disappearance of their patriach, Xavier Dupont de Ligonnes. Cindy lightens the mood with some stories of family mishaps. For dinner this week, Cindy brought us the comforts of home with a delicious meal of chicken pot pie; potatoes on the side. For dessert, a milk and cookies lasagna. Who knew those words paired so well together. The wine this week was Oyster River Chardonnay. A tasty wine brought to us straight from a small winery in Warren, Maine.

DOWNLOAD SOLCIETY APP NOW! Speaker 1 (00:03):Welcome to the Solarpreneur podcast, where we teach you to take your solar business to the next level. My name is Taylor Armstrong and I went from $50 in my bank account and struggling for groceries to closing 150 deals in a year and cracking the code on why sales reps fail. I teach you to avoid the mistakes I made and bringing the top solar dogs, the industry to let you in on the secrets of generating more leads, falling up like a pro and closing more deals. What is a Solarpreneur you might ask a Solarpreneur is a new breed of solar pro that is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve mastery and you are about to become one.Speaker 2 (00:42):What's going on Solarpreneurs, Taylor Armstrong back with another episode, hope you're doing well. We are entering the fall season. It is getting dark earlier and earlier, but if you listen to this podcast, you don't care about any of that because you're going to keep closing deals no matter what that's, what this podcast is all about. And if you're here for the first time, as always, we're here to help you close more deals, generate more leads and referrals, and then hopefully have a much better time in the solar industry. But today we're going to be talking about a crucial step in the presentation that if you don't get right, it's going to kill your closing percentages. So what is this step? You'll find out here in a second, but before that a couple quick announcements, we have a new sponsor on the show, and I'm really excited to announce our first sponsor.Speaker 2 (01:41):You're going to hear about it on the next episode. So don't forget, make sure you're tuning in every week, Tuesday and Friday. And hopefully this is the first listen of your week. Well, I guess maybe not of your week, because we'd come out on Tuesday, but hopefully when they drop on Tuesday and Friday, hopefully it's the first podcast you go to. And as always, if you have suggestions or have topics or people you want on the show, we welcome that with open arms, always look in the future, more solar pros on here, more Solarpreneurs, people that are doing unique things in the industry that are breaking records, or that just have a good story to share because that's where, what we're about on the show. And so before we get into the topic, just wanted to give a shout out to my boy at young Abner, he gave us a five star review the other week.Speaker 2 (02:38):He says, great can podcast Taylor shirt, all the tips and tricks to succeed in this industry. My solar game has drastically improved from listening to the podcast on my way to area. Thanks Taylor, 10 out of 10 to recommend young Abner. You rock appreciate the five-star review. And guys, if you would wouldn't mind, please share the podcast, leave us the review. That's how we keep the show going. And that's honestly what brings me in the motivation. A lot of times it's hearing your comments and reviews. So that being said, let's get into the topic. The reason I'm talking about this is because, um, there's a few changes I've made a spoiler. The step we're going to be talking about is just the beginning of the presentation and that is some people call it different things, but could be called the fact-finding could be called. Pre-framing the deal, whatever you call it, we're going to talk about the crucial steps that you need to take.Speaker 2 (03:40):Before you jump into explaining solar, before you start going through your numbers, before you start going through your facts on solar, you need the master, the, you know, the first thing you do in the home, which is pre-phase free framing, which is fact-finding, which is just setting the stage for what is about to happen. So I'm going to talk about a few things that I have mixed up a little bit. Um, give you a few tips, things that I'm currently implementing, and then you can feel free to take what you want. Okay. In a few of these things, I get from my friends over at knock star. As many of you know, I am in there, knock star United program, great way, um, you know, to network with other people is to get in a mastermind or a group. And that's what we're doing with our app that we recently recently launched the Solciety app.Speaker 2 (04:38):You get to not only network with other top sword professionals and myself, but you also get direct feedback from us on your presentations. So this is something that we can actually help you with. So let's jump into it. So this fact finding a first thing you do, when you get in the house, I'm going to walk you through this steps. And we're only going to talk about this today. So we're going to get into what you should do. First thing you do when you get in the home. Okay? So before you start talking, it makes sure you go into the house with your pad of paper and pen crucial, crucial thing. And it goes without saying maybe a lot of you are already doing this. I know I've talked about in the podcast, but I think it is optional, absolutely essential that you carry just a, uh, what do they call it?Speaker 2 (05:35):A yellow, yellow pad, um, yellow pad of paper. Make sure you have your pen at all times. And if you haven't read grant Cardone's, closer's survival guide, he talks about this concept of buyers. Believe what they see, not what they hear. So why should you carry around a pad of paper? Because they're going to believe what you write down. Okay. If you write down that Trump was the best president of all time, and they're going to believe that, okay, maybe not, but there can take a lot more validity to things that they see in front of them versus just you saying stuff. And it's going to help you stay organized too, and write down what the homeowner is saying. Okay. So make sure you have that pad of paper. And what do you do next to when you get in the home? The next step is just relax the homeowner.Speaker 2 (06:31):All right. So what do I mean by that? You need to just be a human being. And remember when I heard whispers, um, learning the steps of closing our, uh, VP of sales, that was this thing that you just said, guys, just be a human in there. Don't be a robot. We shouldn't have to have to teach you how to do this. Just be a human. How would you talk to your friend? How would you talk to someone that you're getting to know? That's how you're going to talk to you. Your potential buyer is you're going to help them relax, because if they're not relaxed, it's going to be tough for them to trust you. And something that I like doing, um, is just keeping pictures of stuff you did in your life, on your phone. And so show him in my case, I got my two year old kid.Speaker 2 (07:20):So that's one of the first things I do when I get in the home. So I'll show them a picture of my kid. If they have kids, I'll say, Hey, do you have any advice on like how to deal with these kids? They're always bouncing off the walls. Do you have any parenting tips? People love giving you advice. So just a little trick that you can do. Keep some pictures. If you don't have a kid, maybe you have a dog. Maybe your friend has a dog. Maybe you're an owner or an uncle. Hey, keep just some sort of picture on there. And it's a great way to get them talking. If you have a picture of your golden dude or whatever, say, Hey guys have been dog owners for a long time. Um, what's your advice? I don't know. I don't have a dog. So probably a better questions with that.Speaker 2 (08:04):But point is keep some good pictures that can break the ice with them and then just be a human a and ask them about their family. Um, I always train my reps form if you don't know that acronym, it's, uh, family, occupation, relationships. And then, um, there was forget the, um, material materialistic. Okay. I'm butchering it. I didn't come prepared with what the am was or motivations. That's what it is. Motivations. What are their motivations in life? So that's a good acronym if you didn't know. And then after you have just built some sort of relationship built the rapport with them, the next step is you need to set the agenda. So what I mean by set that agenda and you tell them exactly what's going to happen and you can talk as long as they'll let you pretty much, right? Unless you're, you know, in the hurry to get to the next one, obviously you're not going to spend, I guess, within reason don't spend hours and you'd be making money, get to other people.Speaker 2 (09:07):But the story with this last week, the deal I closed, um, this lady, she wouldn't even let me in her house. She was very hesitant. She said, Hey, I don't do sells. I don't let sales people in my house. I said, ma'am I don't, um, I'm actually not the sales guy. I'm just the one that submits the applications from the neighborhood. I don't even know if like we can do this. So you pull back. That's a good way to get them relaxed. Do your takeaway, do your pull back and say so. Yeah, I just have a couple of things to, they just took like a picture of how your roof would look with a solar on there. So it's quick, we just go in the home and I've just checked that out. But yeah, I have to be super quick myself. And then I flipped the script on her.Speaker 2 (09:50):So those types of people, you do, stuff like that. Then what happened after that, with this lady is I was in her home for probably 30 minutes. We talked about nothing related to solar at all. We talked about you're my kid talked about her kids and 30 minutes later, she says, okay, well, anyways, I guess you should tell me about solar. Go ahead. She forgot all about the part where she needed sales people, where she didn't want people coming in the house, selling her stuff. So this is why it's so important. You need to build the rapport. You need to get them to relax, get them to chill out, do your takeaways and let them know that you're a human being. You're not someone coming just to sell them, you know, snake, oil, whatever. And so after you've done that, make sure you set the agenda.Speaker 2 (10:40):Hey, and this is where I've taken a few things from the guys over at rockstar and Taylor McCarthy. If you fell him, he has a great way. If you buy there, uh, they have some slicks. He has a process of how to, um, go through all this. So I've adapted a couple of things from him. Then a couple of things that I was doing before I learned their process. So I think it kinda meshed as well, but if you want to go get two and McCarthy's exact way to do it, they have a couple of slicks in some videos where he also goes through his process. And so a couple things I took from them is setting the agenda. Hey, I was already doing this, um, for the most part, but it goes without saying, make sure you tell the homeowner exactly what's going to happen.Speaker 2 (11:30):Homeowners hate surprises. If they don't know exactly the steps, they don't know. Um, you know, generally how long it's going to take what you're going to go over in their head. It's going to be strikes against you that you need to be pre-framed they know exactly what's going to happen in this presentation. So you say, Hey, Mr. Homeowner, um, so here's what I'll do. And guess what you get to the solar stuff. So I do have to be a little bit quick, hopefully that's okay with you, but today all I'm going to do pretty cut and dry here. I'm just going to show you a picture of what it would look like on the roof. Go over some numbers so you can see a comparison. And then if it makes sense, I'm the application guy. So I'm the son. I'm the one that submits the applications for the neighborhood.Speaker 2 (12:17):That makes sense. We'll submit an application, see if they even can approve your home. But if it doesn't, then we're not going to do anything. Does that sound fair to you? Okay. So that's, pre-framing the deal. They know what's going to happen. And then once you've gone through a couple of other questions at the end of all that I say, yeah. So I'm just going to go through a few general things. So you guys know exactly how the program works be pretty quick. And then after that, you're just going to draw a line down the middle of the, of the sheet of paper. Do you be an apples to apples comparison so you can see exactly what it looks like and then we'll go from there. Sound good. Great. So that's what I say to set up the deal to pre-frame it, it, lots of other great one-liners that people are seeing.Speaker 2 (13:06):So write down one liners a year, you know, maybe it's your manager, maybe it's other people on your team. This is why it's so important. I think to be part of some type of team, or at least some type of, you know, program mastermind is because you can take what other people are saying, and I'm constantly learning from the community and myself. So make sure you're keeping a notes app on your phone or a notes section on your phone of just phrases you like and things that you can implement in your presentation. Okay. And so after you've set that agenda, you walk them through a set of questions. So my line is, Hey, so before we even get to the solar piece, um, I just go through a couple of questions with you just to be sure we can benefit the home. Is that okay?Speaker 2 (13:58):Great. And then my questions I ask them are number one, have you ever checked out any type of solar for the home? Have you ever looked into any solar type options? And I hear some people say, have you ever gotten a solar quote before? The reason I don't love this question is because you're putting in the homeowner said that they should have looked at quotes. Hey, we want to be the people that are different. We don't want to think that we're just coming by with another solar quote, what we're doing. We're giving them an experience. We're introducing them to a solar program that they have not looked into before. If they get in their head, that this is just another solar quote being dropped off, it's something that they already may have looked into. Then it's game over. What are they going to do? They're going to go get more quotes.Speaker 2 (14:51):So that's why I think it's important. You phrase it this way. Have you ever looked into any solar type programs in you want them, um, thinking that this is different. You want to get it in their head? That what you're doing, what you're presenting to them is different than anything they looked at before. And as you're doing this, you're interviewing them. You're writing down all the answers to their questions. It's that's question. Number one. Have you ever looked into solar before? Okay. And then there's a couple of things that, you know, depending on the home, you may have to go through. If you already got their utility bill, you need to make sure you're asking them obviously their questions. Do you plan on using more electricity? Do you think this is accurate for how much electricity you've been using? Have their bill in hand. Right?Speaker 2 (15:42):Make sure you go through that with them, make sure you tell them that you want to design their system for what they're going to use in the future. Not necessarily for what they use in the past and something I've learned here from guys on our team is just make it an us versus them scenario. You want to put yourself, put your program against other, you know, against other things they may have looked at. They have heard things about solar, which in here in California, everyone's heard about solar. So you want to say things like, yeah. So I'm gonna start homeowner. You probably heard in the past where people still have to pay extra bills to the utility company or it wasn't covering all the energy they're using. So what we're doing with this program, that's different is we design it for what you're going to use in the future.Speaker 2 (16:32):Because most people, they tend to use more energy. That being said, do you guys anticipate in the next year, do you anticipate using more energy than you did last year? You coupon on getting your pool, put in. You plan on getting the hot tub DuPont on buying a Tesla. Do you plan on a mine and some Bitcoin here in the house? It, whatever it is, make sure you're designing it for the future. And it's a great way to kind of tackle that objection they had in their head. That it's going to be the same thing that they looked at before. So make sure you're going through that. And then here's the part that I took from my friend Taylor McCarthy that I love. And I didn't think of it this way. And my old question that used to be what questions or concerns would you guys have about solar?Speaker 2 (17:22):And then they would say the typical, oh, um, how much is going to save me? What happens if something breaks up there, yada, yada, yada, that's all good. And I will be writing those down. But what I learned from Taylor McCarthy, Dave, that I thought was genius is take it on the offense. So you tell them the questions that they should have first and you tackle them. And why do you do this? It makes you look like the expert you look prepared. And we all know if you're, you know, knocking doors or overcoming objections, what's the best way to overcome an objection. It's to beat them to it. It's to bring up the concern before they can. Cause if you do that, you're taking the wind out of their sales. They have nothing, nothing to hit you with. So when I heard this from McCarthy, I thought it was genius.Speaker 2 (18:12):I think it's great. So give them the main concern that people would have. Then you can still ask them if they have questions after that. But I've found since I've started doing this, probably I don't know, 80 to 90% of the time, they don't have questions aside from these, um, questions that I bring up. So Taylor McCarthy, he calls it the five main questions. And if you don't know these, I would write them down. This is the one big thing that I've changed in my presentation. And so the questions are what happens to my roof. Number two, what happens if we move bottom line? What is the cost to me who maintains the system? And when do we start saving money? And if you think about it, these are basically all the concerns that people have with slower. You just brought them up before they could.Speaker 2 (19:04):Hey, and so you bring it up and you answer it before they can even ask them, Hey, before you're even talking about solar, you answer these questions. Okay? So as far as the question, number one was what happens to my roof. So the answer to that, Mr. Homeowner is, um, the roof, the solar up there, it would actually keep the roof cooler. So it prolongs the life of the roof. And then the other nice thing is if they pick your home on the program, then they're actually going to warranty the roof where the panels are, or they're going to guarantee the roof where the panels are. Okay? Assuming you should. Most companies have some type of basic penetration guarantee, but tell them that the roof is protected, where the panels are. Can. The second question was what happens if we move to another big concern?Speaker 2 (19:59):And if they move, you answer this one, if you move a transfers over the same way the utility company would, and the new homeowner is able to be more economical with their future expenses. Great answer. Question. Number three was bottom line. What's the cost to me. Okay. McCarthy's answer is your cost is diverting or redirecting what you would have paid to the utility company. And now have the ability to start paying yourself. Question number four was who maintains it as far as the maintenance goes, we're on the hook for the next 25 years to service and maintain the system and something I've added into that is another takeaway type thing, which is why they are a little bit strict with who actually gets approved on the program. In the past, anyone that owned their solar would have to do all the maintenance with it. It was a big added cost.Speaker 2 (20:55):Cool thing about this program is if your home is approved and everything goes well, then we actually kept her for next 25 years. And then the last question was when do we start saving money? As far as savings go, the idea is now that you're producing power onsite, rather than you throwing your money away, it would now be stored in a piggy bank where you have an end game. It's a rate questions and answers from a tumor. Curt that again. And this is something that I did change, love what he's doing with that. So I would suggest, definitely adding that into your, um, presentation into your intro there. Okay. And then the last thing that I do after we've gone through these, what do you, um, so first question again was, uh, had you ever looked into any solar type options for the home, a and then you're going through the five main questions.Speaker 2 (21:54):And then I also typically ask them, what's your goal with solar? A lot of people will say, oh, we want to save money. And this is where you dig in a little bit, deep, deeper. This is the mistake I used to make as well. Everyone says we want to save money, but what does that mean? They expecting to cut their bill down 90% expecting be zero. So figure out what their expectation is and a good line I use for this. I say, okay, well, um, so if we cut your bill down, let's say 30% and give you way more interview. Would that be a win for you? And I'm talking in California's market. So I know people outside of California, maybe that's not possible. Maybe we're even increasing their bill, but adjusted to whatever market you're in. Maybe it's a, if we kept your bill the same as it is right now, but kept it at a set rate and gave you a little bit more energy.Speaker 2 (22:46):Would that be a win for you? Most people it's going to be a, no-brainer say yes to that. And then you've already got a pre-commitment. And then the last question I'll throw in there is do you guys plan on moving, but you already, you know, brought up the answer to that question. So there you have it. So those are the questions I typically go through as you are doing your fact-finding and then to put a bow on all this, after I've gone through all these things, all the steps I try to pre-frame it one more time. Say great. So, um, now, like I said, I'm going to go through just a couple of general things about solar with you guys, make sure you know exactly how it works. And then, like I said, if, if everything does make sense and looks good for the home, we would submit a quick application, fill out a few forms, get the ball rolling, to see if we can actually approve the home.Speaker 2 (23:41):And then another thing you can bring up at that point is credit. So you let them know that there will be a soft credit check. So you can ask them about their credits too, if you haven't already, a lot of times you'll do that before you even get into the house for the appointment. And so these are what I'm doing in my fact finding hope it helps. And I'm sure I will continue, continue to add more things to it, make tiny adjustments, but make sure you have a set process in your head. Something that makes sense. So that's the steps that you go through asking those questions. Hey, you can use a lot of those lines that I brought up. Let me know if you guys have any other, um, one-liners anything else that's working really well as you set the stage for your appointments, hope that helps and send it to someone that is struggling with their closing because chances are, if you are not doing an awesome job, if you're not drilled this like crazy, then this could be a big reason why you're not closing the deals that you need to.Speaker 2 (24:43):So you set the stage like this. If you get them to make that pre-commitment, then the rest of the appointment should be a breeze just going through, you know, the facts and the figures and button them up with it. So share this with someone, you know, that needs help in their presentation. And don't forget, next episode, we're going to announce the first ever sponsor for the podcast. I'm so excited. You're not going to believe who it is. Okay. So tune into the next episode. And we actually have, um, you know, the man behind the company, that's sponsoring the show, he's coming on the podcast. So you're going to hear from him as well, a couple people on his team. So you're not going to want to miss it. And we will see you on the next show. Hope you enjoyed it and close lots of deals this week. Peace.Speaker 3 (25:35):Hey, Solarpreneurs quick question.

Il y a des chiffres qui sont insupportables à dire et à entendre : en France, chaque année, plus de 50.000 enfants sont victimes de maltraitance et tous les 5 jours, un enfant décède sous les coups infligés par ses parents. Mohamed Bouhafsi a 29 ans, il est journaliste dans l'émission C à vous sur France 5. Jusque l'âge de 8 ans, il a été battu violemment par son père. Il témoigne de cette enfance brisée dans son livre « Rêver sous les coups » chez Larousse. Il aborde cette part sombre de son histoire personnelle. Mélanie Dupont, psychologue auprès d'enfants et d'adolescents victimes de violences physiques, psychologiques et sexuelles à l'Hôtel Dieu à Paris, également la présidente de l'association Centre de victimologie pour mineurs (CVM), répond aux questions des internautes sur la maltraitance des enfants.

It was one of the largest manhunts in the history of French law enforcement. In 2011, Xavier Dupont de Ligonnes vanished after murdering his wife and four children and burying them in the backyard. Authorities were confident he hadn't left the country, but after years of searching, he was nowhere to be found. When a body hanging from a tree was found in the woods, police thought they had their suspect. When human remains were found inside a cave, they were sure it was him. Each time, it turned out to be someone else. So, where could France's most infamous fugitive be hiding? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for November 2, 2021 is: passel PASS-ul noun A passel is a large number or amount of something. // A passel of work emails awaited Jon on his return from vacation. See the entry > Examples: "'He's here!' the vehicle owners cheered as 100-year old driver of a 102-year-old Buick Irenee DuPont arrived again. DuPont then handily backed his car precisely into a parking place alongside a passel of other old vehicles." — Chris Barber, The Chester County Press (Oxford, Pennsylvania), 22 Sept. 2021 Did you know? Loss of the sound of "r" after a vowel and before a consonant in the middle of a word is common in spoken English. This linguistic idiosyncrasy has given the language a few new words, including cuss from curse, bust from burst, and passel from parcel.
Providing employees feedback is important to their ongoing growth and development. Unfortunately, only 30% routinely receive it and among those – most feel the information provided by their manager is either negative or too vague to be valuable.

Sam is at the dog park, contemplating her recent interaction with Charles, in which, in short order, she thanked him for driving her home, noticed his hand was out of his pocket, rebuffed his offer to cancel the fencing lessons, laced her hand through his, pulled him close, AND..... slammed the door in his face. Thanks, Sam. Blue balls for everyone. She wonders whether she did the right thing while massaging her hurt hand (future plot point?), and wishes she could ask someone dating advice. Lo and behold! Our beloved Monica appears. We discuss her recent transformation and current lack thereof. We switch to the fencing club, where Charles is letting his frustration out on his students. Eva is watching, and tells him off for his anger. We speculate about the professional career comment and the extent to which Eva knows Charles' story. While disrobing, she taunts him about being sexually deprived (seduction much?), and mentions a Dupont, leading to more speculation on our part. The episode ends with a glare from Charles with chains behind him. Angry? Lustful? Will he or won't he? Right or wrong? We discuss.

Today, we have a bonus episode for you. And it's all about Tyvek. Yes, that wondrous paper-like, fabric-like material, that is actually neither paper nor fabric, that our industry uses to make race bibs.Well, that wondrous material is now in a bit of a supply freeze. That's right - the owners and exclusive manufacturers of Tyvek, DuPont, have informed printers that no more printing-grade Tyvek shall be made available until the end of the year, in an effort to divert production to medical-grade Tyvek, used in PPE and medical supplies, which, not surprisingly, is in high demand lately.So what is to become of Tyvek race bibs? I sat down with Marathon Printing President and third-generation bib printing specialist, Ryan Zirk, to find out. In this episode:Tyvek's special properties making it ideal for race bibsTyvek's (many) other industrial uses: PPE, packaging, weather barriersPrinting on Tyvek bibs: from bulk Tyvek sheets to finished bibsPrinting Tyvek at home: can it be done?Recycling Tyvek bibs: where and how you can recycle your Tyvek bibsDuPont's announcement of halting production of printer-grade TyvekAlternatives to Tyvek for printing bibs, if printer-grade Tyvek inventories are exhausted Thanks to GiveSignup|RunSignup for supporting quality content for race directors by sponsoring this episode.

He shares his experience expanding the growth of the companies he worked for in the Asian region. Carl also talks about launching an IPO successfully and his thoughts on the future of private equity and other investments.

What is the growth thesis of this company? Why are we attracted to it? What do we think we could do, that the management team or the current owners are not doing, that can raise the value of that enterprise? Having a willing willingness to spend 4, 5, 6, 7 years at it versus a couple of months, that's the right way for business investing.” - Carl J. Lukach “It's that longer-term view that's focused on business fundamentals, coming out with a product or service that that is better than the rest, that you can sustain that advantage. How do you create that advantage and sustain it? How do you grow into markets and geographies that you're not in today? It's people. Of course, it's the killer app and technology and all that stuff, which is really important as well, but it really is about people.” - Carl J.

A matéria “Marijuana: assassina de jovens”, foi publicada na revista American Magazine no ano de 1937. E ela começava com uma história completamente inventada: “O corpo esmagado da menina jazia espalhado na calçada um dia depois de mergulhar do quinto andar de um prédio de apartamentos em Chicago. Todos disseram que ela tinha se suicidado, mas, na verdade, foi homicídio. O assassino foi um narcótico conhecido na América como marijuana e na história como haxixe. Usado na forma de cigarros, ele é uma novidade nos Estados Unidos e é tão perigoso quanto uma cascavel.” O autor do texto era Harry Anslinger, provavelmente o homem que mais tem mérito (ou demérito) para que a maconha fosse criminalizada não só nos EUA como em praticamente o mundo todo. Tudo começa em 1920 com a Lei Seca. Durante aqueles terríveis anos onde o álcool era proibido, os estadunidenses tentaram relaxar de outro jeito: com a maconha. A planta era consumida normalmente por pessoas marginalizadas pela sociedade, como imigrantes mexicanos e árabes. De acordo com o historiador inglês Richard Davenport-Hines: “A proibição do álcool foi o estopim para o ‘boom' da maconha. Na medida em que ficou mais difícil obter bebidas alcoólicas e elas ficaram mais caras e piores, pequenos cafés que vendiam maconha começaram a proliferar”. Mas a planta era usada em dezenas de remédios como xaropes para tosse a pílulas para dormir. O efeito relaxante da cannabis era utilizado frequentemente. Mas uma coisa fez com que a proibição entrasse em jogo: o cânhamo. Quase toda a produção de papel da época usava como matéria-prima a fibra do cânhamo, retirada do caule do pé de maconha. O cânhamo também era usado para confecção de cordas, velas de barco, redes de pesca e outros produtos que exigissem um material muito resistente. Até a Ford estava trabalhando para a criação de combustíveis e plásticos feitos a partir do óleo da semente de maconha. Plantações de maconha rondavam os EUA e a Europa. Acontece que o Harry Anslinger era parente de Andrew Mellon, dono da gigante petrolífera Gulf Oil, com seu principal investidor a petrolífera Du Pont. A Du Pont estava usando petróleo para a criação de aditivos para combustíveis, plásticos, fibras sintéticas como o náilon e processos químicos para a fabricação de papel feito de madeira. Todos esses produtos disputavam o mercado com o cânhamo. De acordo com o escritor o escritor Jack Herer: “A Du Pont foi uma das maiores responsáveis por orquestrar a destruição da indústria do cânhamo”. Para atacar o cânhamo, atacou-se a maconha.

When a family of 6 and their 2 dogs went missing from their home in France in April 2011, authorities were stumped. When they checked the house, there was no sign of a disturbance and everything was neat and orderly. Police thought the family had simply gone on vacation. That was until a letter arrived stating they were suddenly in the US federal witness protection program and further communication would be dangerous. Seemed odd to family. When investigators returned to the empty home and scoured for clues, they found a lot more than they expected. What followed became one of the most intriguing and infamous cases in French history.

Worcester Fire Department gear comes under scrutiny. We referred to Diane Cotter as 'Worcester's Erin Brockovich' after reading the September 2021 feature in Men's Health centered around her activism.

We are eager to see what comes next.
Kevlar is widely known for its use in "bullet proof vests," but there is a lot more to it! In addition to this life-saving use, it is used for a number of other items thanks to its high heat resistance and high tensile strength. We looked into how Kevlar was created by Stephanie Kwolek while working at DuPont, the science behind its production, the different types of Kevlar out there, and a number of other uses including tires, tennis racket strings, and more.

“He's vain, proud. He doesn't want to lose face. He doesn't want his children to find out he's got no money, that he's ruined.”On 7 April 2011, the patriarch of the aristocratic Dupont de Ligonnès family, Xavier, packed up his car with several large bags and set off for parts unknown. His home in Nantes, France - where he lived with his wife and four children - would remain still and quiet for days after. Eventually, police were called to check in on the home, after a series of mysterious letters and emails were received by the family's loved ones and acquaintances. Days later, a heinous discovery would be made on the family's property, but by then, Xavier was long gone...Episode written & researched by Olivia ParadiceEpisode hosted & produced by Micheal WhelanOriginal music created by Micheal Whelan through Amper MusicTheme music created and composed by Ailsa TravesProducers: Roberta Janson, Sara Moscaritolo, Travis Scsepko, Ben Krokum, Quil Carter, Jo Wong, Laura Hannan, Steven Wilson, Damion Moore, Scott Meesey, Scott Patzold, Aimee McGregor, Sydney Scotton, Thomas Ahearn, Marion Welsh, Patrick Laakso, Meadow Landry, Tatum Bautista, Denise Grogan, Teunia Elzinga, Ryan Green, Sally Ranford, James Herington, Jacinda Class, Stephanie Joyner, Rebecca O'Sullivan, James Weis, Kevin McCracken, Brooke Bullek, Shane Robinson, Lauren Nicole, Stacey Houser, and Sara RosarioLearn more about this podcast at http://unresolved.meIf you would like to support this podcast and others, consider heading to https://www.patreon.com/unresolvedpod to become a Patron or Producer
Did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 98 percent of Americans have trace amounts of PFAS (per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances) in their bodies? And that PFAS reduce vaccine effectiveness? Join Food Sleuth Radio host and registered dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Sydney Evans, MPH Science Analyst, Environmental Working Group. Evans discusses PFAS, a toxic “forever chemical” and tap water contaminant that has been linked to cancer, thyroid disease, immune suppression (reduced vaccine effectiveness), low birth weight, decreased fertility and more. Tune in and learn more about tap water quality and how to protect your health. As Evans explains, there's a big difference between what is “legal” and what is “safe.” There are hundreds of contaminants in water but only some are regulated. And bottled water is not necessarily safer. Where to find PFAS chemicals? Teflon, non-stick, food packaging, Scotchguard, fire-fighting foams and more.

Le 20 novembre, l'équipe de France accueille la Nouvelle-Zélande au Stade de France. Elle aura affronté l'Argentine et la Géorgie avant ça : comment prépare-t-elle cette tournée d'automne ? C'est un match pour briller, faire un exploit et confirmer les nouvelles attentes. L'équipe de France a repris des couleurs depuis un moment et, dans le sillage de sa bonne tournée estivale en Australie, veut capitaliser. L'objectif d'un titre est dans toutes les têtes et un beau match face à la Nouvelle-Zélande déclencherait une chouette dynamique avec le prochain Tournoi des Six Nations. Comment le staff s'attend à cet événement ? Sans ses joueurs majeurs (Dupont, Ntamack, Jalibert, Ollivon…), l'équipe de France avait brillé en Australie. Ce fut autant une bonne surprise que la preuve définitive que le réservoir est conséquent, mais aussi un tas de questionnements pour la suite. Y a-t-il des surprises à intégrer au XV de départ ? Faut-il faire évoluer le “jeu de dépossession” ? Animé et réalisé par Antoine Bourlon, avec Alex Bardot, Renaud Bourel et Laurent Campistron.

Wonder how America's individual inventors persisted alongside corporate R&D labs as an important source of inventions beginning at the turn of the early twentieth century? American Independent Inventors in an Era of Corporate R&D (MIT Press, 2021) by Eric S. Hintz presents a candid look into the history behind the phenomenon. During the nineteenth century, heroic individual inventors such as Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell created entirely new industries while achieving widespread fame. However, by 1927, a New York Times editorial suggested that teams of corporate scientists at General Electric, AT&T, and DuPont had replaced the solitary "garret inventor" as the wellspring of invention. But these inventors never disappeared. In this book, Eric Hintz argues that lesser-known inventors such as Chester Carlson (Xerox photocopier), Samuel Ruben (Duracell batteries), and Earl Tupper (Tupperware) continued to develop important technologies throughout the twentieth century. Moreover, Hintz explains how independent inventors gradually fell from public view as corporate brands increasingly became associated with high-tech innovation. Focusing on the years from 1890 to 1950, Hintz documents how American independent inventors competed (and sometimes partnered) with their corporate rivals, adopted a variety of flexible commercialization strategies, established a series of short-lived professional groups, lobbied for fairer patent laws, and mobilized for two world wars. After 1950, the experiences of independent inventors generally mirrored the patterns of their predecessors, and they continued to be overshadowed during corporate R&D's postwar golden age. The independents enjoyed a resurgence, however, at the turn of the twenty-first century, as Apple's Steve Jobs and Shark Tank's Lori Greiner heralded a new generation of heroic inventor-entrepreneurs. By recovering the stories of a group once considered extinct, Hintz shows that independent inventors have long been—and remain—an important source of new technologies.
