John Rubino joined us to discuss how the Keynesian geniuses over at Treasury are now resorting to FICO inflation to help lift the economy. For some reason, they believe that if they artificially inflate consumers' credit scores, this will lead to an increase in economic activity. More consumers will be able to get credit cards, buy autos and homes. While this may be true for a short time period, it will also help bring on another credit bust, eventually leading to a bust. How stupid can they be?
We also discussed the new American bombing attacks in Iraq and what it means for the country and you. There's much here to digest.
Recently, a large group of authomotive journalist were invited to the Portland, Oregon area to test-drive and experience the new 2015 Dodge Challenger cars. The day was spent driving along the Columbia River Gorge area, across the river, and back down the Columbia River on the Washington state side. The afternon was spent driving the various Challenger models on the Portland racetrack.
JEFF GALE was on hand at the race track to represent the Exterior Design engineers, so journalist ALAN GELL took a few minutes from his drive time to interview Jeff. This session was pre-recorded on-site at the Portland race track during the 2015 Dodge Challenger media event.
The exterior design is heritage inspired but very iconic in appearance. There are new projector headlights, new projector fog lights, new heritage-inspired tail lamps, retro exterior colors, nine wheel options and an exclusive SRT wheel option.
My guest on Thursday, June 5th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk will be artist, craftsman, and jeweler Jim Grahl of J.Grahl Design.
About: My name is Jim Grahl. I'm nearing 65 years old, 48 of those years have been continuously devoted to jewelry and industrial design. My training initiated with a Los Angeles workshop that was the contract (or outsource) manufacturer for Van Cleef and Arpels, Gump's, Pierre Touraine and many others that were the foundation of the West Coast's fine Art~Jewelry establishment. I have formal apprenticeships in Pave' setting (Gerardo Terranova) and ancillary training in platinum-smithing, machining, and antique musical restoration.
My personal business (J.Grahl Design) was founded at the outset and has been in continuous operation for 47 years. (as of 2011). I'm a maker-builder at heart. All of the items shown in the photographs and illustrations here, on "Custom Made", are exactly that... Custom Made. You will see many cross over categories in metal, wood, glass and illustration-art. I am deeply involved with both vintage autos and surfing, so items relating to those topics are exposed here as well. There are generally a few of my projects available for live viewing at the Museum at the Gemological Institute of America as well as The San Diego Natural History Museum.
Our range of services is extensive. Our experience includes designing, photography, prototyping, project development, and jewelry fabrication. In addition, we also have experience with mechanical music mechanisms, illustration, computer engineering and design development (CAD), restoration of jeweled items and consulting.
