Welcome to conversations I'm your host Greg Thomas passed thanks for spending some time with us here this weekend joining me this segment is Douglas Pete Taylor a seismic structural expert good morning sir. Ordered join us as we look at the issues that affect us here at home and our community and across the nation. The entire West Coast riding along the edge of tectonic plates is in the process of connecting technologies to form a predictable worked system for future seismic activity earthquake safety is something that everyone in the Pacific northwest is taught in school drills. As we have made awaits major shakes. What will happen to our structures from small houses to giant buildings and while century link field can survive a beast quake from a bunch twelve erupting in cheers for Marshawn Lynch. How would affair with stronger seismic activity. Douglas B Taylor is president of Taylor devices which manufactures seismic dampers that protect structures during such events. As earthquakes and high winds he's the inventor or co inventor a 34. Patents in the fields of energy management hydraulics and shock isolation. And 2015 he was inducted into the space technology hall of fame by NASA and the space foundation. Doug what got you interested in structural integrity of buildings and such when they're faced with shaky quakes. Well back as part of 1990 we usually do most or work for the military. The Cold War Soviet Union and that to change and he. We cannot short count French girl. Altidore children may actually go to the conditions the Defense Department to offer technologies for commercial which. Bush civility people struggle left likable who wants to buy that product was designed to protect them under prohibition shall eventually clear track. The postal solid chocolate or partial commercially. But the rural. If you're an expert much can I be one of the actual or are both of New York. Explorer running with an added benefit to voltage we discovered the which the additional if you Alter our commercial he should install one of the structure. We get Tripoli are quickly changed much clinched chancellor was built on to equip. Children under voltage and urgent worldwide but he future major structure. With our truck unfortunate for the proportion of liberated that would be sure that early tradition that bench. To build it won't buy insurance or urged. Actually you change Seattle. Over the years in court record for addiction to undergo open up about. Change science so short trip with an estimated over pictures from the pool of potential. So you're. We change the quake global school apple boulevard to church this it was a record up to magnitude eight point five. We coach global television California when it goes on and it combines of them and we'll for action. Of course go oh ask from work or church before attitude shift before we shall I shall it's not an atypical of the design for. The commission stadium actually for sort of all commercial radio it probably doesn't meet the current they are like coach now. And earned the boulder in Oregon pearl but not a cap. Pulled pushing it pushing for which buildings do you find like we have tons of bridges here we have tons of giant buildings downtown more more being constructed every day. And then we have you know 56 level apartment complexes and individual homes. One of those structures that you find most at risk when you're to bring your line of work. Well sure rush could be an older build and 52 inch version targets such a lot of work. Well patiently kept structure that was huge privilege actually if you went over earth or the finish. Well the brochure she literally of course not only. Boulder and launched an auction and the patient retention and literal strength against the outlook from boulder nation's worst lift itself up well chart. So you crack up commissioner. So our buildings or buildings now that are being constructed to another area as the masonry just a facade. In medication Asia we don't surgical field should be a little back. But 1990 ish in that building that your that retractable wrote structural. The world structures designed to show up to all of a great point I ever scored with options after the ball. You know what because that the squalor court. The whistle were shut out of trouble which radio. They're older troll this year it's like or virtual wallet less. Provide according to the wolf from all the strokes which protect the whistler or have been changed were a lot. Well you're right that we are doing the virtuoso shot also with little security walls to Shuster for urged. So what kind of the cut off he said that the standards have been improving over the last several years going up for what you have to be able to resist. What kind of a cutoff. For like an age of a building there were walking into where it's. More we should fuel safer than what's safe. Kind of what twenty years such an emotional launched what leadership. It's probably beating shoveled more modern versions of challenged over much more important Herschel one. And a little nervously around the building about the report and people have different builders of the medications that he. The older seismic coach. Will only hurtful about the golden. Two point or would not for touched. Bought that doesn't ensure that the stock going to be that would choke badly by the quake that. It may regret operate the typical red tiger which of the promoted the building's mechanical advocate church storefronts and have to be knocked down. To Danish coach or performance but it pitched shall be older and pensioners circuit but it also felt over the cold. And you're sure missions were train control. Gold pro which is huge bolt it doesn't score much and there really helps to be that much potential peril if that's what Walsh local with the old. Irish law or was literally or were you could be at a hospital doing surgery deliberately to 3.5 record and you wouldn't have to stop. It's so pretty wild ring true. Well perform a slow or approach with the approach her purse social and it gives people more choices of what to expect from the Bolten than to try to have built. I guess today's Douglas Pete Taylor he's a seismic structural expert Doug do you remember the great beast quickest warning eleven and what are your thoughts if you do when you see it making highlights at the time when you like when you see that that come across the news. Well reminds bishops impressed that we did here back in the nineties some some big damper for hospital. And every channel repression that we kind of vertical drop or shall protect and such comes away with rocket like ten feet mr. pepper. It would shrink in the grown locally. British soldiers are doing the post the pictures of our foolish kind of took a lot about what. A wonderful something's funny it would look of them. The pictures are trickling in the particular side to side missiles. My goodness we just at the funeral horrible problem on America trick or an earthquake with finals of like that to trigger option. So what were true which currents with should be used court closed the activity of the crowd jumping up and Donald and corruption. Excitement and some of the frequencies and straighten itself shall that would bolster along with the crowd. That we shrubbery and publish all local waters record although we should not probable direction of the pro shop opened Donald Russia where action or. Till Walsh per. Or structure could. How would a stadium like our own sentry link here over the Seahawks play how would that fair it's less than twenty years old if there's a big quake had to think it would hold up. All right and that's simple straightforward. How we go back to one of the most well known instances and earthquakes and erupting a sporting event it was back in 1989 barely remembered as a kid but. The World Series game when San Francisco. It happened sees me it was game to attempt Cisco's postpone for Massa for earthquake at the Bay Area. What are the citi's stadiums that series Oakland coliseum is still in use today question probably. But the a's in the readers is that facilities safe. Not really. What they did after the accord that was called global river or the church officials and that was a name which picture in northern California. Or by total start looking at Wrigley accretion charged with a quote. The people of Los Angeles looked up and so what about the issues of northern California. But nobody before or essential shred the sport through each quarter. And that surprised all of that would give him the coach sort of like big job awkward. In terms of horse shuttle surely changed period. Won't appreciate a quicker curb these assumptions were put. The world would never move back and for more little ball two feet per shocked that it's considered perhaps looked terrible waksal. Today they're looking good shrinkage you're absolutely swaptions retreat for shark. So sure it changed since he's been crucial factor for. Imagine yourself trying to stamp on the prohibitions on conduct force action. Portugal audition for commercial. That's so roughly church social but also our kicks the there are going to be too happy people can kick stand up and what about actual structure itself after the you know it was true. Another facility that your company's products are widely used and is a beautiful one up in Vancouver BC place what are some of the things that went into protecting that stadium is kind of the thing that we can look to as an example for the future of stadiums. It's such were the China shall. That overshot Irish for chapter on the court the ball great. Quality points or which were urged sort of choose that Hoover area. And literature of the accord with Obama Travolta shuttered. A while. And visits to dampen her reserve is it through. I had some understandings of what goes into that. But it's a combination who opened the dampers shall shall be short quick literature before constructive. For which structure. And it blew it for sure actual connections stroked it straight. We were blocked from when all the pretty durable power structure of scorched. In the connection approach for spiel and concrete. To conduct the voltage columns being shall look you don't know. And if ownership launch connection which shall bow applause for the appreciation of good approach that current they're charged on. Russia will launch with a retractable roof of the church Schofield the British falch but he. Such. Running the ball with a report on ask what you would open up which. Measures of personal shall. Go to food ruled out can force them all if you had and if you had the who would would you collateral earthquake put its stay in one spot. It would strip launched. Now that's incredible we saw on opening day this year had to be closed for a day game haven't if you're just a small structure owners is something that we should maybe be looking into as well. Were actually shall and shall all the northern California area for. Actually you should look for a change. You know the top two years well fascinating stuff Douglas Pete Taylor. Postal we can find out more about your work involve the seismic activity in the preparations that people put into. An interpreter were short which was more vacation restrictions which also projects we don't know purge sold into virtual world wide. Well actually this www. Regulations dot com. That's tailored devices dot com Doug thanks so much for joining us today have a great weekend. Record extending it a baseball game ticket peek up at that Ruth specifically what's on the move takes about eight and a half nine minutes we timed it and think that there's.

Sitting in your schedule conversation into the public affairs program on. Welcome conversation on your posting here crew. Used today we are talking to a UST ate food safety expert Marianne incredibly high and yeah. I you talked CU before the big holidays like before Memorial Day weekend or before fourth of July or Thanksgiving where you know where are getting ready to mama cook a lot and eat a lot but many a lot of people you know attracting tonight okay so what's the what are we talking about today a spring clean. And we think about spring cleaning we're thinking about you know me be changing the current and dusting the house. Com email from wall to wall clean the windows but with some think about spring cleaning is cleaning your footage. That's right and you know white. Quite possibly need to add more than your refrigerator ego there's things in there that. Have been there for months possibly years or is time to steer them out clean it out and just put back what were keeping. Okay all right so let's gamble lists some. Foods on that we should you know kind of be aware of and and kind of look at and see there's an expiration date on there. Well. They're used to come with an expiration date like bill cooler or lunch meat. Even commit your confidence will have and expiration date. But it's not required there's no federal requirement that he'd have a data and so. So for food we do have an app called the food keeper where you can. I didn't mean that your food and and the food keeper is telling you. How long that product will lasted it to free epic album from the Google her or apple stores in the US he food keeper but. But sometimes you just have to look at the food and and make an assessment unit it's still seem the way it did when I abided you know can I can tell what it is anymore and if not does that mean it's just kind. Can I tell an easy mark not. A question I know I don't. Let's just throw that out about a yet that's a good indication on how he spent mentioned condiments. Catch up does that have an expiration to. I'm okay. This rather acidic so it won't keep a good long while in your refrigerators. Several months at least maybe even longer would like I'm condiment. There will be date on the package accurate. Actress recommendation for a backed. Quality but you can usually tell would I didn't like that if they lookers and allocate its starting to break down if it's changing color. If this bill is just off. You know open and that means it's time or two ago. RA and I am okay well and we're looking at food and what should be thrown out we should keep what you should throw out. What about their refrigerator and freezer itself do you go landing clean it with us you know goal had clean with a cloth and you know wash cloth and stuff should leave. Clean now as well. He should remove the food and then it wiped down did two wars this. Covered. With hot soapy water. He didn't spicing things eventually it will give up to a hot soapy water. If if you feel like it's really need to good grabbing after it's cleaned she can read it with a diluted bleach solution to the table that it bleeds. Per gallon of water you don't have to make a whole gallon that's the ratio. To use the battle and it ties in the areas of the where you know maybe there was a lot of things that bills that. That you want the picture our our our good in clean also wanted to give a good cleaning today caskets because that'll help improve the feel. The refrigerator. I'm painting with a freighter just pull everything out weigh it down well. And then only put back by what's worth keeping. Look like what are some proper ways to store food for example let's say you had pizza left over. How would you suggests storing that and how long what's the life of that in the refrigerator. Heard for your leftover cooked food take out a general rule is to read a four days. After that they could spoil you know. It's easy to put pipita back in the pizza box message you're gonna keep it in there for three or four days you might wanna take the pieces out. And rapid individually may be put in the in. Plastic storage bags or freezer bags tour of how our containers that you can feel just because. It'll keep it fresh longer will try out pizza box is really. A lot of protection from the trying era in refrigerator. Aluminum foil. Yeah aluminum foil is great and you know seal it up tightly. But as far as how distorted things. You know try to have a plan when it comes to your refrigerator put like things together though. But the condiments together they have crisper drawers for your fruits vegetables so put those there. Have a beat tour it's a little bit colder it they're so. They get put your lunch meats cheeses. Fresh meat in there it's also protected. From day temperature fluctuations so it's a little bit colder. And then try to have one place where you put the left overs and the cooked foods that you always know where to look. If you're looking for them in quick to users of the that you have left overs you're not having debt. Move everything around in and dig deep for something it's easy just to put. Think in the front of the refrigerator pressure returning to the back in the bed and you lose things. How about and foods in the freezer let's say you meets okay ticking and beef all that you have frozen how long should you keep it frozen in Winston I throw it out. Food poisoning bacteria doesn't grow in the freezer on the matter how long the food fruit it will be safe he eats but nothing lasts forever. So. Eventually food and will dry out they they will. We know flavor. If you pull out of back of some things in your freezer and it seems like it's a work. Know whenever that used to be is now all dried out it's not going to be we're eating anymore. As far as how long things last. Something large like Turkey or chicken Norah. Roast or a stake those foods will keep up to a year. Out quality. On the other hand chicken parts maybe that nine month ground meat and poultry. About four months for best quality and then you're leftovers about four months as well again beckoned depend on. How they're packaged so again aluminum foil freezer paper a sturdy. Freezer bags or plastic container will keep those shoots. At best quality for the longest amount of time. All right well that's I didn't know that. That's what I'm I'm mommies to freeze everything. Ari hate in this is a side question. This we have lost electricity. Mom. Say about seven hours. Is there or should I go to my fridge like toss this keep that. I'm just asking for myself. Yeah and that's the question you know that we get a lot on our on our meat poultry hotline people who have lost power. Your freezer is probably find this through this early in fully packed freezer will stay. Say for about a day or two depending on how awful it is a bit but there refrigerator will only keep it. And eight temperature for about four hours of you know not everything in your freezer and add ferry in your refrigerator. Is there for safety purposes some things just last longer so. I would recommend during out any meat or poultry I would give me The Hague the bill. Any kind of opportunities to get cream cheese or goat cheese for him we'll get rid of back. But other foods. While they don't require refrigeration. It lasts longer so that's why we keep the mayors to your confidence or modifying your fruit and vegetables in juices are fine. If you have hard cheese and there. They're okay it's just not achieve that have to go in butter and margarine are just fine now some food. With a seven our power now added to probably won't notice this but. Some food you know as time goes by they based oil and they normally would have so be alert for any kind any change in the product. Well I'm Marianne. What is the web say or a phone number that everyone can call they have questions about you know their food if they're cleaning out their refrigerator that as part of us spring cleaning.

As earthquakes and high winds he's the inventor or co inventor a 34. Patents in the fields of energy management hydraulics and shock isolation. And 2015 he was inducted into the space technology hall of fame by NASA and the space foundation. Doug what got you interested in structural integrity of buildings and such when they're faced with shaky quakes. Well back part of 1990 we usually do social or work for the military. The Cold War Soviet Union that would change going to be. We cannot short count French girl. Altidore children may actually go to the conditions the Defense Department to offer technologies for commercial in which. We're stability people struggle left likable who lost about a product pushed aside to support them. A group prohibitions on mortgage nuclear track that social so fortunately or commercial commercially. What Iran. If you're an expert much but can I be one of the virtual or are both on the New York. Expert running with an added benefit to voltage and we discovered that. Which the additional if you won't rappers are usually installed as one of the structure. We get Tripoli are quickly changed much hunch chancellor we've got onto equipped. Children under the election urgent worldwide but he injured major structure. With our car for the proportion of liberated that would sure this early shrewd machine that bench. To the building of the insurance board urged. Especially if you change Seattle. Over the years in court record for a quick cash to undergo open up about. Change science social or computer than estimated other pictures from the oil console. So you're. Which in the quake global school apple boulevard to church is that the giant oracle to bite into the eight point five. We virtual world television California weather consignment for signs of the and four for action. Of course go oh ask Rupert brick church before attitude shift before we shall I shall it's not an atypical thing the design for. The commission stadium actually different sort of all commercial radio it probably doesn't meet the current favorite court coaching panel. And earned the golden Oregon pearl would not have happened. Pulled pushing it pushing for which buildings do you find that we have tons of bridges here we have tons of giant buildings downtown more more being constructed every day. And then we have you know 56 level apartment complexes and individual homes one of those structures that you find most at risk when you're to bring your line of work. Well sure rush Kabila older build and five tinged version targets such a lot of work. Well patiently truck structure that was huge privilege actually if you want to record speak English. Well the brochure she literally of course bodily. Boulder and launched watched it and then the patient retention and that it will shrink the guns outlook from boulder and ancient forest what it's awful well chart. So you crack up commissioner. So our buildings or buildings now that are being constructed to another area as the masonry just a facade. In medication Asia we don't Safeco Field should be a little back. In the 1990 each and senate building that your that retractable road trucks in the the world structures designed to chopped a ball over an eight point 51 court with options after the ball. No one because of this quality court action. That was what the workforce out of trouble which radio. They don't virtual this year it's like or virtual a lot of less. Well according to the wolf almost of it was protected what sort of have to change were a lot. Wells you're right they're lower than the virtuoso shot while also didn't really care in the world change just urged. So what lieutenant come off he said that the standards have been improving over the last several years going up for what you have to be able to resist. What's kind of the cutoff. For like an age of a building there were walking in to where it's. More we should fuel safer than what safe. Kind of what what your social and emotional launched what leadership. It's probably beating shoveled more modern versions of Cilic will go much more important Herschel and and I have to look nervously around the building about the report and people have different builders of the medications in the the old Ers punishment coach. Or holding virtual book the golden. To the point where would not for corruption. What that doesn't ensure that the stock going to be that would choke badly by the quake that. It may regret operate but they're gonna Wear it's I guess we're actually promoted the building's mechanical advocate church softens and have to be knocked down. To Danish coach or go for launch but it pitched shall be older and pensioners or could it also dongle to patrol the and your social issues were train control. Old crow which is huge boulder doesn't score much and there really helps to be damn much potential candidate that's what Walsh well with cold. Highest won't orange. Would or wouldn't or were you could be at a hospital village surgery took it in the magnitude eight point five earthquake and you wouldn't have to stop. Which are pretty wild ring true. Well performance slow or potential to approach or urged social book that gives people more choices of what to expect from the boulder and the trying to have built. I guess it is Douglas Pete Taylor he's a seismic structural expert Doug do you remember the great beast quake of warning eleven and what are your thoughts if you do when you see it making highlights at the time when you like when you see that that come across the news. Well we're archbishops of testing we did hear back in the nineties some some big damper for hospital. A return of discussion that we kind of vertical drop virtual protect and such counselor or rocket like ten feet which pepper. It was shaken the grown locally. Contributions soldiers are doing the post the pictures are bought off wish come true gloat about what's. So wonderful something on it looked at them. The pictures are trickling the particular side to side missiles. My goodness we just certainly you are horrible problem on our constrict. Ordered or court Arafat was elected to trigger. So what were true rich spiritual through British court closed the activity of the crowd jumping up and Donald and corruption. Excitement and some of the frequencies and straighten itself shall we battled along with the crowd. That we shrubbery and publish all the borders record although we should not probable direction of the pro shop opened Donald worship where action or. The abortion per well or structure could. How would a stadium like our own sentry link here over the Seahawks play how would that fair it's less than twenty years old author is a big quake had to think it would hold up. All right and how it that simple straightforward. How we go back to one of the most well known instances of earthquakes and erupting a sporting event it was back in 1989 barely remembered as a kid but. The World Series game win simply Cisco. It happened sees me it was game to attempt Cisco's postpone for massive earthquake at the Bay Area. What are the citi's stadiums that series Oakland coliseum is still in use today question complete. But the a's in the readers is that facilities safe. Not really. What they did after the accord that was Koppel for rivers quick mentions of social and that was a big picture in northern California that he or by a total start looking at Wrigley accretion charged with a quote. The people Los Angeles looked up and so what to let them choose your northern California. Nobody before Los Angeles had the Northridge quake. And that surprised all of that would give him the coach sort of like big job awkward. In terms of horse shuttle surely change period. Won't create a quicker Kirby assumptions were that the we're all it would never move back and forth or little ball to treat partial our current structure their apps looked purple waksal. Today they're looking good shrinkage you're absolutely swaptions retreat for sure. So sure changed since he's been crucial factor or imagine yourself trying to understand on the prohibitions on conduct forced back. Porsche audition for commercial. That or roughly reception shuttle also our kicks the there are going to be too happy people can kick stand up and what about actual structure itself perhaps you know which took. Another facility that your company's products are widely used and is a beautiful one up in Vancouver BC place what are some of the things that went into protecting that stadium is kind of the thing that we can look to as an example for the future of stadiums. But such work to China shall. But will social Irish workshop don't quake the ball great. Over the which are which shall search sort of changed the Hoover area. And literature go to court with Obama took all children. Oh wow. And visits to dampen her reserve is it through. I guess in understandings of what goes into that. Such a combination of opened the dampers short short short quick and nurtured before constructive move for which structure. And it blew it for sure actual connections stroked history. We were blocked from when all the pretty durable power structure which. In that connection approach or steel and concrete. To conduct the voltage columns being shall look you don't know. And if ownership launch connection which shall bow applause for the appreciation of good approach that current they're charged with me on. Russia will launch the retractable roof of the church Schofield the British falch but he. Such. What it'll open a report on what you would open up which. Nations and the personal shall. Go to food roll back and forth than all if you had and if you had the would logical lateral earthquake put its stay in one spot. It would strip washed out. Now that's incredible we saw on opening day this year had to be closed for a day game heaven if you're just a small structure owners is something that we should maybe be looking into as well. Were actually show potential of the all the northern California area for. Actually you should look for a change. Ago the top two years well it's fascinating stuff Douglas Pete Taylor. Postal we can find out more about your work involve the seismic activity in the preparations that people put into it. An interpreter were short which has more vacation restrictions which also project shall we don't know purge built into the urgent worldwide. Well actually this www. Regulations dot com.
