G N Channel and Decker with Dr Jeffrey Cope and Chief Medical Officer for Northwestern Minutes in Lake Forest Hospital, and if you got a question In the time remaining 312981 72 100 Glenn, Thank you for waiting and you're on w g N. Hello. Hello. Thank you. Um, I had the covid in November and totally recovered. Now. I had a blood test recently. The doctors still sees high levels of anti body within my blood and tells me not to get the vaccine, which is fine. My family and I want to travel overseas. And my kids just told me, Dad, you got to get the shot to go overseas. So, Doc, I'm a little afraid if I got the anti bodies now, and I get the shot I am I gonna like o D. Or should I just extract vaccination card over the Internet? Yeah. So, Glenn? Yeah. Yeah. Don't get the fit. Exactly Nation card. You'll be like that lady that tried to get into Hawaii. Now, listen, Glenn, if you do make sure all the words are spelled correctly, all right, Okay. Yeah. Glen, I agree with your kids. I think you should get back in ated. Um And this is a This is a good opportunity and frankly, you could go get a single dose of Johnson and Johnson that together with your natural infection. We'll put you in a really good place will have really good immunity. Um you'll you'll be able to travel you'll be able to travel safely. Um so yeah, I would go ahead and get get vaccinated. If I were you, As long as you're going to a country that let you in the end the single shot then Yeah, I think so. I think so. It would just be easier for you to do that. You know if you one shot and you'll be done Okay, and you'll have very strong immunity if you go ahead and do that. Thanks for calling Glenn. Of course, you've got to find a country that will let you in. It's not. You know, John, we didn't ask when where he was going. Yeah. I mean, you know, some places are totally off limits. Can't get in. Sorry. Jim, you're on WGN. Hello. Hey, John and Doc. Thanks for doing this, Uh, got a question for doctor when you mentioned earlier about getting the vexed the flu vaccine the same time you get to Covid vaccine, and I'm a pharmacist here. Um, what if you have a problem with one of the vaccines? How are you going to know which one caused the problem? Yeah, so I would never. I never give to vaccines at the same time, and I know CDC said okay to do it, but I never do that. Yes. So the reason CDC is is recommending that is they want to make sure people get the two vaccines and you and I both know you're a pharmacist. We know compliance can be a real problem. People not coming back. Second question coming back for the second vaccine. So when if somebody were to come in and say I would like both the vaccines if you were the council The patient, You know, I think we should just give you one and you should come back in a week or two to get the second one is long As you believe that they had person will come back and get the second vaccine. That's fine. But CDC just wants to make sure that people get both now The other thing we know is the incidence of severe reaction to any of the three coded vaccines or the influenza vaccine is extremely low. So the kind of reaction that you are talking about where we really would want to know what the vaccine it What? What? Which fact seen caused that reaction? Thankfully, now that you know, around the world now there's been over 5.5 billion doses. Billion with a B Billion doses of college vaccine Kisen. And we have a really good idea. You know, this is a pharmacy. What The side effects are so that severe side effects that we were concerned about when we first started are incredibly rare, and that's the reasoning that to CDC used when they say it's okay. To get both vaccines. But again, if your preferences the ministering, um pharmacist is not to do that, Obviously, that's okay too. Thank you. So much for the call. And doctor. I want to once again. Thank you for taking time. To, uh, answer questions from the W G M listeners. It's always very, very informative, and it's good to put the correct information out there. From somebody who has a medical degree. I know it's a novel idea, but, uh, John, All we can do is try and I appreciate the opportunity to To share what I hope is helpful information. Yes, it is. Thank you so much for being with us. The news is next from the northwestern Medicine newsroom. Hey, Jen, We need to sell our home. Do you know what Great agent I do?

"On W G. N And I am honored to have this guy on the telephone with us again. This guy Dr Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, co director of the Center for Vaccine Development at Texas Children's Hospital. Dr Hotez. Thank you. So much for joining us on W g. N Thanks so much for having me this afternoon. Well, it's my pleasure and 312981 72 100. You can call you can text your questions as well. I think this is what where I'm going to start with the questions that I'm getting from folks. The delta variant We've heard so much about. There have been reports in the news that the vaccines we currently have may do a good job, but not a great job. And we should be concerned about this variant, even if you are vaccinated. What's true, what's not true? Well, we'll know better as we see what happens, uh, as adults, A virus accelerates because now it's about 20% of the virus Ice list in the U. S. And in Missouri. It's around 29% almost 30%. So it's getting up there. It looks as though the two doses of Isis fighter buying tech back but there is a vaccine. Hold up quite well. Um so that even if you happen to get breakthrough, Covid, you're not getting sick, So I think people should feel pretty comfortable if you've been fully vaccinated with those two doses of the vaccine. If you've only gotten a single dose of the modern advisor vaccine, you're still somewhat more susceptible. So you need to get that second immunization. And if you run back, made it at this point, there's a good likelihood you may get covid from that delta vary. Um, What about the Johnson vaccine? Did you leave that out on purpose or Yeah. I was afraid you're going to ask me that. So, uh but the the answer is we don't have the data. Um And so we're we've been pushing on CBC and FDA to come up with guidance and what to do. If you've gotten a single dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine it's likely that there's some protection But it may be similar to the single disk Mrna vaccines and some and on that basis, some would say, get a booster shot with either a second dose of the J and J vaccine or one of the mRNA vaccines. The problem is, we just haven't received that guidance coming down from CDC and FDA yet hopefully it'll before coming, I believe what you just said, is somewhat newsworthy and somewhat worrisome. Uh, I'm sorry. What? Somewhat worrisome. What you just said. I think, because so many people have gotten, of course, the Janssen vaccine and you're saying Well, now they need something else. Maybe in addition to that I've not heard that before. Yeah, We just don't have the data one way or the other. And so I know the J and J with the FDA and CBC are working hard to come up with some definitive answers. And so a lot of the questions I'm getting now by email or calls is Hey, what should I do? Should I get the second dose and and you know, Unfortunately, we just don't have that that evidence yet, So hopefully this will be coming very soon. All right. What about the need for an update A booster? Even if you've had Either the Moderna vaccine or the Pfizer vaccine. Is it going to be? Do we know yet, like the flu shot that you get every year? Is this going to be every six months? Is it going to be every year? And are they going to be changing What's in the vaccine based on what variants are out there? Yeah, You're asking all the good questions. Here's what I think. I It's sort of an intermediate answer, and that is that. I think it's likely that later on the somewhere we may get some recommendations. If you've got the two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine together third immunization and what that will do is give you more resilience, more robust protection against any variants that come along. It looks as though right now the two doses are good for the delta variant. But I wouldn't be surprised if the recommendation of the third dose comes along later this summer. That's 0.1 point two then what's always followed the next question. Okay, Doctor? Who does that mean? We're going to need a vaccine booster every year Like flu like you just asked. And in that one. I think the scientific community is more divided. I personally don't think that's going to be necessary. I think with that third immunization will have pretty long lasting protection for quite a while, but we'll see what kind of guidance comes down. All right, so I'll be the fly in the arguments sort of speak here. Uh, two. Alright, let's say what you say. I mean, you can say that. I'm I'm not trying to be cute. I'm not trying to thread the needle here. What I'm trying to do is is, you know I have personal opinions on What I would recommend. But I'm also reluctant to get too far over my skis and see the fear in a in a bind that says something that, uh, that that that ultimately they won't agree with And so it gets to be a sort of a difficult position Well, and this is your expertise, So let's say country of choice. It doesn't matter. Has a lot of covid because they're not vaccinating their citizens yet, and there is a bigger change than what the Delta variant is that affects the spike protein. Is that not likely to happen? Am I being too cynical? Um, well, you know where we are seeing new variants of all the only interesting news is when you see the variance evolved. It's not like they're mutations, Will he? Millie? It looks as though we're seeing that convergence. Around the same four or five amino acids in in in the spike protein, so that potentially says to me that we won't necessarily need to make new vaccines in perpetuity that the existing vaccines that we have provided we get really high levels. Virus, neutralizing antibody to those vaccines. Will be give us broad enough protections that we may not need, Uh, different vaccines down the line again. New pathogen. We're always learning new things, but I think that's that's likely to shape up. I think the more common question I'm getting asked is, we have a lot of expats. Um, because they're working for global companies and working overseas. They don't have access to the Madonna or fighter vaccines. They're getting Chinese vaccines, the Russian vaccines Now they're in the U. S. What should they do? Should they now get the mrna vaccines? And that's that's now being looked at very carefully as well in order to give some some guidance, so there's going to be a lot, you know. What happened was we got so many vaccines out there including our vaccine. And you know that that now we're kind of playing catch up in terms of making recommendations about mixing and matching. Alright, I know folks want to talk to you 312981 72 103 12. 981 72 100. You can call you could text Dr Hotez and you will have an opportunity to talk with this great.

You sent over a lot of the addresses, So thank you for that, and we hope that there's good news on the other side.

Look forward to that. I think it's gonna be pretty fun to see a lot of people getting a lot of money. But let's right now, let's talk with Meghan Wladek, because this is mental health awareness month and you know you normally there are so many concerns this year. My God, so many more concerns unusual and one of the things that Megan glad it does. As she is Miss International 2020. She is in Antioch native local person who has focused on teen mental health and Megan. Thank you for being on the show. Appreciate it. Thank you so much for having me It's a pleasure to be here. It's important topic, no doubt. And I know you. You made this really focus. Why? Why just sign. To do that. Have a personal connection. It started out as a heart health issue that ultimately transpired into a mental health issue that was put off for years as The guys at the heart health issue, And once I realized that the symptoms I was experiencing were directly related to anxiety. I ended up with the diagnosis in 2018 and made it my Personal and pageant platform mission through mind her body to end the stigma and get the conversation going, because if I'm feeling this way, other people are probably feeling this way as well. Well, especially after the year we've had. I think it's even popped up in so many more kids. You see anxiety PTSD and you see all kinds of issues. I think it's It's almost unusual to see a kid who's come through this year. Who doesn't have something that they want to talk about. It's been a very difficult year to process and affected people in so many different ways. You find that there is other enough resource is And what would you say? If you you know when you meet somebody who says, you know? How do you help me? What do you do? Recognizing the signs and then getting help? What? How do you sort of guide people through that? Yes, absolutely. I mean Children have gone through. I can't even imagine what they've gone through being put at home and doing online learning. There's a lot of fears of getting sick or having loved one gets sick. There's also the fear and anxiety of current events that are going on in the country. But when Children come to me, or I hear Children are struggling if they're looking for help, the best place to start is with a school or a social worker. Psychologist, counselor. Any sort of research. You have a cool but also someone that they trust. It is always the most important If you find a trusting adult, they will be able to put you in the right direction to get you the help you need. Yeah, it's so important, and I appreciate what you're doing here. It's um I didn't know they had the pageants last year. How did you become Mrs International 2020? Did they do pageants and I wasn't aware of it. Yes, we were. All precautions were taken very seriously. Social distance our production company. It was great. Everyone wore masks and We got through the entire week without a hitch, and I think international pageants really set the precedent for other social gatherings to happen and be in process. Yeah, I'll hear I hear you. Well, it Z good that you did go through that. Because look at the work you're doing now. As a representative for that, your 61. You played volleyball. I know. You know You went back to school little bit during the pandemic. What's next? What's next for you? Megan? What's what's the next step? I did go back to school for a little bit, So I got my.

We just we miss seeing you on TV, My friend. How are you? Oh, God. Anna, Thank you so much. I have to say you and I have talked more than a few times since this thing went down, and I just can't tell you how much I appreciate your personal support. And if I knew I was going to get this much every time I would have gotten fired a lot sooner and more off. Why are you enjoying your time? No, I really I really, really am. It's I'm at the point now where I still feel like I'm on vacation. You know the early stages and again being so flattered to be mulling over some options and enquiries and offers and we'll see. I mean, I could do nothing or anything right now, and that's a great feeling it Z. And it's so trading cliches. But I have to say it. There is a whole another world out there. In fact, there are eight million other worlds, so it really feels like a fresh thing. So it's all good. I'm never going to forgive her. Forget How it went down, but eventually I'm gonna have to move on and get over it. And but it all worked out, so I'm really the luckiest guy going. Yeah, well, selfishly, I think we'd all like to see you back. I mean, you brought so much joy to us. I mean, look, I want to read this text You mark real quick. 847. Please tell Mark he is really missed. He is the only sportscaster who really did more than just read the script. So unfair. What happened at seven. But I hope he finds the best gig possible. And I don't know what you take your time. You think or any idea about what? When you might sort of do something else, or if you will, do you do you think were you? Sorry leaning right now, Mark. Well, First of all, thanks so much for that text. I think that was my agent Joel Ways. I feel like the clock is ticking a little bit in the sense that I think I need to make a decision sooner or later. Because, you know, once you're off the air, you're pretty much forgotten. Although these past three or four months spent overwhelming as I said, it really much appreciated. You figure out who your true friends are in the business and outside the business, but You know, like last night? I'm watching the draft. You know, damn it, Should it working so I could have thrown Mike. You sense it, you know, and, uh, Carlos Or don throws his no hitter, Almost perfect game like, gosh, it would have been worked. Could've been working that night. And I'm putting the highlights together in my head as I'm watching the post game, So I still have these little twinges of G. I wish I could have jumped in on that. I wish I had. You know, could have created a graphic or written something semi clever or, you know, play with some sound bite and try to come up with a new angle. But on the other hand, while I feel like I have plenty of energy, plenty of juice left, maybe just directed another way. You know, I've had 40 years in Chicago. I had at least 10 before that on. I was working the night shift the whole time. So now I'm trying to go to bed early and get up early. Make the old country buffet and, you know, be able to do a lot of things I wasn't able to do before and looking back. It was very glamorous, Exciting Dream job for sure. But also you paid the price. Um, never had dinner with my kids growing up putting him to bed doing homework, even though I never could help them with their homework. Um We had a lot of great hockey trips to bond with which I really appreciate it. But, you know, I think I spent more Thanksgiving and Christmas is with Michael Jordan and I did my own family. Sometimes you know the run of all these playoff teams and championships. Holidays, weekends, everything else you're working so now Get to be Papa. You know, I've got three grand kids and I have three wonderful sons. They're three wonderful wives. So best friends in the world assembling is in the world. So I've got way too much going on just now. I get to enjoy it all. Yeah, Well, that's the trade off. You're right. You're absolutely right. You nailed that? No, actually, I think you've said that in a speech somewhere even years ago because I have a friend who quote you on that and says, you know, we look at margin, Gregor. We think he's just like, got this incredible thing. And you? You lay it out perfectly you did you had all of you. Do you have all these like experiences Michael Jordan and all these stars and you're right there, front and center. On Ben. There's the trade off with your life, eh? So you have some decisions to make moving forward as you feel the offers coming your way. Hey, can we pause it for a second? But I don't We have listener questions. 312981 72 100 questions for Mark Giangreco and I do want to get your two cents on the draft.

Gotta money question for Terry Savage. 312981 72 100 will get to your calls and questions coming up. Just wanna say thank you to Terry Savage coming on the show today. Hey, Terry, how are you? I am on this. It's fun. It is fun. You know, you're you're part of Ah, Parent serious program tonight, And these things have been really great. The subjects that they're coming up with one tonight is the price you pay for. Colleges want to get this out there. We can put it up on the WGN radio website, of course, but it's tonight. Seven o'clock, You go to Glenbard GPS that or for the link, it's free and it's virtual. So I mean, wow, free. Great advice from Terry Savage. I'm in Yeah, I'm interviewing Ron Lieber, whose books just debuted today at Number four on the New York Times best seller list. It is called the Price You pay for college if you have a high school student, preferably a freshman or sophomore You absolutely have to read this book. I mean, you know, people make big decisions about their home. But if you have one or two or three kids going to college, you're talking about spending more money than you probably spent on your home. And it's been a blind item. You know which school will give me more? How? What's the real class? What's financial aid? Today. We're dealing with a student debt problem that Are bigger than our national credit card problem. $1.7 trillion in student loans, burying people. And if Ron had written this book 15 years ago if he could have We would have saved so much heartache. And why is that? What is that? We should have known. What should we have known or what could if we knew something, then that we know now what would you do Different Here's the thing. Think about health care costs meant If something's wrong, you go to the doctor assuming of insurance now and then this whole thing about what insurance did you have came up, But you would. You knew that insurance would cover it. So you never Knew that if you walk into you know, Rush Hospital or Northwestern Memorial or whatever. Some people there who were having heart surgery. Have insurance that pays the full tab. No, Some people are on Medicaid. And there's huge discounts for that, And some people are part of group insurance policies that have negotiated lower prices with hospitals and doctors, for example. But since we don't pay when we have health insurance We don't know about the underlying distribution of what stuff clock. And, frankly, unless you call your friend and they know I had my hip replaced here are my knee replaced there. You don't really know There's no way to grade actually the outcomes. Of any process in health care. Well with college. It was the same way except It wasn't insurance paying for it. It was parents. And Rahm Lever has managed Appeal back. What is happening now is your kids apply for college next year or the year after to see Not only the facts, the stuff I write about about financial aid, and it's true costs in the forms, you have to fill out this factual stuff. Let's talk about what's the real value of college. Which may be different for your family or another family. Maybe it's prestige. Maybe it's cost. Maybe it's It can be a number of things that make people Willing to pay more for college. But the question is, Do you get what you paid for? And could you have paid less? Nobody goes out and buys a car at list price. I mean, I'm not a car person, but I know that the stickers right pressure. Gonna pay well, doesn't disappoint there, too. There's an excellent point there, too. I just remember the time I was going to college early nineties, I everyone was. You're supposed to go to college. That's what everyone was supposed to aspire to go to college. It was a sort of like the unwritten rule, and people looked at you other parents would look at you and say Oh, you're not going to come. I mean, like it was one of those things and you're right. It's something to examine. When you look at this year cost of it, and you look at what the payoff is relative to it. My concern here is Terry that the cost of a college education is getting So high and so big and you're looking at a whole generation that's just saddled with all this death. You're seeing people who are low income who are choosing not to go to college or in that middle income. Where they you know, sort of don't qualify for help. Just deciding. You know what I might benefit from college, But I just won't even go for it because I don't want to deal with all of that. Those student loans for our countries as the nation. I mean, in general. Overall, we really do need an educated workforce. But there are a lot of moving pieces in this whole decision. All right. I'm gonna start at the tail end because just because, two weeks ago I put up a column in terry savage dot com. Talking about the incredible Soon loan debt problem where we have people in their forties and fifties and some even approaching retirement and some in retirement. Who I have not paid off their student loan. No simple part about that is they never understood Number one what the cost of interest would be and number two here something that surprises so many people. When you take out a student loan if you took it out 12 or 15 years ago, the interest rate was 8% interest rate stays the same for the life of your student loan federal student loan. And private student loans are equally high, and they don't re finance very easily. So the fact is that what if you took out a mortgage 15 years ago, and you had a 9% right by now You've.

You 23 years, something like that, and I've been interviewed, and I'm interviewed all the time. I'll be on Jim Bohannon show in about a week and a half. And I'm interviewed by radio personalities that radio stations all over the country. I am just saying all of that because John Williams is of level above. Everybody. He's just so so good. Sometimes when you have it every day. You don't appreciate what you have some of the text that I do have that we didn't get to hear if you can't travel without your comfort. Wrap snake or pony, then you're too unhinged to be out in public. Just stay home. And another says, just because the place is reporting no numbers, meaning covert 19 numbers doesn't mean there are no numbers. I know of two recent cases where someone obviously died of covert 19. And their family member told me no Cove. It was mentioned on the death certificate. Others say it's the other way around. And it's being exaggerated. I don't know which is the case for sure. I do know that different countries have different ways of reporting it different standards for which they report. Some countries don't even have the ability to test like we do. In American, most of Europe, So it really does very and we at the end of the day don't know. The World Health Organization offers the best guidance on that. I hope the offer you some amazing guidance 312981 72 100 if you want to speak to a Nobel Peace Prize. There. I said it. Okay, nominee. This is amazing. I mean, I couldn't believe it. I received. I know this guy and I received a message Ricardo from you just one day. Direct message on Facebook, saying, By the way I'm nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, this is Ricardo Torreblanca Zabala Gah. Hope I said that right of the core foundation. I think I say Congratulations. Huge. Congratulations, Riccardo. That's amazing. How does one get nominated for a Nobel Prize? You don't just walk out your door one day, and it happens that someone knocked at your door. Do you get an email? The view is that like Ed McMahon, you don't even know who he is. Probably because you're probably too young. Who knocked on everyone's door, Dick Clark. I think that that and said You're a millionaire now or whatever they said, How does it work? Well, well, thank you for having me here and giving giving me time to talk off about the things that I did, I did, and for in that I'm still doing in the country of Peru and also with Canada. The thing is that I was received a call from the one of the president of the Congress of the country of Peru on and he told me that he nominated me for the for the Nobel Peace price. And then I also received calls from the from the three different universities that also from the presidents of the university's letting me know that I was from united. It was a surprise for me, because what I do Eyes. It's just too is to create a change. I didn't know they were gonna nominate me. It was so surprised. Well, I guess we should back up a little bit. So what do you do? I know it has to do with a foundation called the Core Foundation. Unorganized ation that helps reach sustainable goals. What does that mean? All right. Well Core foundation is have a foundation that that I started. Um, and it works on six pillars that is education, science, high impact projects, technology, innovation and commerce. And what we do is we we connect the The university's from from from Peru on now we're expanding to Brazil. And we contact connect them to universities here, the United States and also in Canada and we create how impact projects or apply science that helped them develop economically and this science is related to energy environment. Food security. And the You know these data is that the government used the government in Peru uses the data for them to, you know, have more informed this state will make more informed decisions based on four for their community. So based on that work, we Uh, tackle one of the big problems that we are. The Peru has that is illegal mining, illegal mining. What he does is they sent gold like about two. Death two tons of gold. Uh and no $2 billion in gold. Uh, U. S dollars go outside from Peru, Uh and dad in that gold is financed by Narco traffic and terrorism. And by us creating these areas off the economic development, but we're doing is stopping and lowering that funding to get out of the country of Peru and And that's very important because that finance that that money financed narco traffic and financed terrorism around the world well, right when you think when you think Ricardo of when I think, anyway, probably not you but when I think of the Nobel Peace Prize I'm thinking of a war that's going on somewhere in the world. And there he is, Ricardo jumping in the middle in the country saying Stop, guys, this side that side! I'm gonna make peace. And and the Noble Peace Prize. I've come to learn through U isn't necessarily about that. It could be something different, and it's not only what you described that will hopefully change. What's going on with drug trafficking in Peru and other countries in South America. Broader picture is if you take a look at our world You. You take Africa, you take South America and Central America. And take for the moment South and Central America. It's in some ways in some ways a completely different world. They call us a developed nation. I hate that term because it makes us seem smarter. But because I don't think we are. But we certainly economically are in a very different place than nearly every country in Central and South America, and therefore the people who live there are at a very different places. Well, so is your goal and part to somehow change all that. Right? Um, the work that the I'm doing is saying the white less nominated was in for him. They call it one is for lowering, uh, poverty. The other one is, uh, to better their in the environment. Um, I unite countries case I'm working with the country of Canada and the United States and the other one is to create peace Congress. And that's what we're doing in Canada. Um and we started, um 2019 alright, well the windows I want to hear what this peace Congress is all about. We will And if you have any questions for a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, we're going to find out when he is going to hear that. He's won the prize. If he wins the prize. What does he win? Is that a gold medal? I don't know. I think it's a lot of money, too. If he doesn't win. What does that mean? We'll find all of this out. I know you're the edge of your.

We know that the vaccine rollout is underway in Illinois. By the end of today. End of today. It's estimated by half a million people will have gotten the vaccine here in Illinois. That's health care workers. Of course, people living in long term care facilities. They're getting it now over the next week, they're going to finish that phase. Hopefully, that's what the governor's office says. And then they get to the next phase next Monday, one week from now, right? So what happens then? Okay, People over 65 can start getting it. Frontline workers like police officers, grocery store workers, transportation workers, folks like that they can get in line next, and that's the prioritization. We've seen it all lined out. Lined their kind of put together by the governor's office. We've seen them give us that right all the way down to the healthiest people among us, right? But here is a question for you. Here's the question. When should the prison population? Get the vaccine. When do you think that people in prison should get the vaccine? Because listen to this. There's been a change. In a deviation from CDC guidelines, The Pritzker administration is preparing to prioritize prison inmates in the second round off coronavirus vaccinations.

How is remote learning working for Chicago Students?

"Of this half hour. If you are a parent of your kid, If you are an educator or teacher, any any involvement? If you have a story to share, please jump in any time jump into the conversation. 312981 72 100. Here's the deal. If you saw this chalk beat Chicago, they do a great job of covering education. And they took this deep dive into how remote learning is going, how it's going for students and teachers and really, really in depth, And they found that a lot more students are getting efs now than before Virtual learning began. Lots of reasons for that. How to correct That, of course, is another issue. But let's talk to the person who authored this piece for Chuck beat Chicago. It's kalen Bell Sha and she joins the show this afternoon. Kalen, How are you? I'm doing good. How are you doing? OK, You know I saw this and it struck me and I felt like, Oh my gosh, I guess it's sort of just having friends and family members and education. It does seem to me as if I worried that this was the case, and then I read your your article, and you're saying that it's happening? Not just in Chicago, but in big cities across the country. More students are failing classes. That's right. We've seen that happen in Chicago. Los Angeles hasn't released deep data, but they also are showing indications of that Houston kind of all over the country. We're seeing this alarming rise and failing grades and decency is to, um and I think what's most worrisome is that some of the groups that really struggled before the pandemic black and Latino students, students from low income families English learners and that students with disabilities have seen some of the largest upticks in most failing grades. I was surprised, talked in front of my teacher been a friend for a while. While and she told me that She actually is in a school that's selective. It's on the South side, and you know she she deals with kids were typically very motivated. She's seen a and B students falta de enough students, and she did. She's finding that she's not gonna endorse she's calling. She's calling. She's trying to figure out what's going on, and some kids have disengaged entirely. They're not logging on. They're not completing assignments, and there could be a number of reasons for that. I just wonder what it is you found. I mean, I can share anecdotally what she mentioned. But what did you find? Overall? What was going on? Yeah, There was kind of two categories of students. Kind of like what you mentioned student to normally are pretty on track and do really well but kind of the difficulties of remote learning might have made it harder to access their classes. We've heard a lot of students say they've had trouble logging in the zoos, links changed. They missed part of their class, and then they fall behind. Um, teachers have also said, you know, they've seen a lot of students who stay engaged in class. They're they're they're participating. But then when it comes time for them to do the work independently on their own at home, that's what's really tripping them up. They get. They get frustrated. They start struggling, and they may not ask for help from their teachers in the same way that they would in school. And maybe the teachers aren't seeing all the signs of struggle because they're not face to face with their students. And then that second category is students who more disengaged who might just not be coming to class and not doing any work at all. And teachers and schools are having a hard time reaching them. One of your quotes here very powerful. I found it is hard for students who need independent health. Said one teacher high school teacher in Chicago. Students are only allowed to meet remotely one on woman teachers with parents permission. Everything I understand about how to stop a kid from failing involves being present with them. You can pull them out into the hallway. You could say Hey, come here. Grab lunch. Grab a snack. Go get a sandwich. Come back. Let's go through this together. That's not happening. So much of that sort of one on one kind of identifying a kid who's not, You know, he's not grasping everything and being able to handle that that that's not happening. Exactly. Teachers don't have the same tool that they would normally have in person. And the other thing I heard was that usually there'd be maybe a handful of students struggling in their class, and they'd be able to do that one on one outreach in person. But now because they have so many students struggling, it's just so much harder to reach everyone. So even if you try to do an uptick in frequency and reach out more, you're just have a lot more students and a lot more families to stay in touch with and teachers were saying. It's like snowballing and it's really hard for them if the school doesn't like team up and find a way to reduce that works for the chief You're just really hard to stand, Talk love. I'm feeling for the teachers. I'm

Yeah, we mentioned at an extremely local news yesterday. Great legendary spot in Evanston, now expanding to Avondale. Darkies was always great. After a heavy night of partying, Starkey was the best he is missed, and more more Turkey comments. I guess this is because you were talking about having Turkey at other times of year. Steve I have made Turkey dinner three or four times a year. Turkey is definitely available year round. They do sell turkeys other times? Just not as many also, you could get one now put it in the freezer. They keep up to a year. Well, and you know, because we were talking about having Thanksgiving in July, right? Yeah, That's it.

"Us right now We have two lines open 312981 72 100 on the phone with us is pet expert Steve Dale. You can hit his website Steve Dale Pet world dot com. You know that I have a dog. Wrigley is his name. I have to ask you before we take calls. He still When he comes out in the front yard, Steve, everything is OK. He listens. But if he sees another dog, he's running everywhere in a run in the street. I just don't want him to run into the street. How do I get him to stop doing that? How did he get you to step in, at least least, least, really, you know, And and then and then what we do is we begin training the dog. The most important thing. Any dog can learn because dogs sometimes do head in the wrong direction. It could be dangerous for them than it is to teach your dog to come. That we begin by doing it indoors and you do it without any distractions in front of the fridge where your dog knows I'm going to get the most amazing food and a little and then a little further a little further around the corner. And then when your daughter gets distracted, playing with your son or something, and then you can call your dog to come and then out in the backyard, But on a long leash that you've given by online, err and any pet store, got it Or you could create a long lead of your own. The point is Do it inside. First without distraction than with distraction inside than outside without distractions than outside with distractions that step by, step by step. All right, one other question. We have a chair in front of our front window that Ridley would sit on and just stare out the window and watch the world go by while that chair is gone, and now we have a new chair. And he still wants to get up in the chair. How do we break that habit? You don't want him to be up on the chair. We don't want him to be in the new chair because it's a new chair provide. Can you provide something else that he could? Apparently your dog like? Looking out the window and cannot get a good view about a chair. So there's there's something else you can provide. Well, here's the point there long windows, so he doesn't need to be in the chair. He could get a look around. Yeah, OK, OK. So you could put like sticky tape on that chair, something of that nature to see if that will keep Ridley off the chair and also make sure that something really good on the ground right there. Maybe a toy stuffed with food that doesn't do it alone and something on the chair to make it uncomfortable to sit there. And Wrigley says, Why don't we have here? This doesn't feel so put the treats their before we leave. On the chair. No, not on the chair on the on the floor. I'm sorry. My brain's working ahead. So if I have So what you can't do it occurs mostly when you leave the house. You can. I don't know how big the Cherries but turn the chair on its side or something so really cannot possibly get up there once. A number of weeks go by. That number depends from dog a dog but for me to buy your dogs out of the habit of doing it, and then you're fine. Got it. OK, let's go to Bonnie Body. What is your question for Steve? Dale? You're on the air. Hi. I have a question. I think I have a dog with having separation anxiety, but not for my husband or I because we're there at home or not. We're not. We're retired way had His mom. An 11 year old lab took off four weeks ago and we haven't found her yet. Never Ever since she took off. He have been a totally different dog. Pail of down between his legs. Almost all the time. I looked that up on the Internet that the sad tale Sure. And then he eats him his appetite. He's a lab, so his appetite is gone, but he doesn't want to go out and fetch He only wants to go outside of the US go to the bathroom. Um and I'm I'm debating whether I should take him to the bed. Well, I mean, how old is the dog? At nine. So it's over, but body and if you haven't seen the veterinarian and more than a couple of months, there's no harm in doing that. Certainly convey something wrong. Also white with people if you get terribly upset, anxious That is likely or more likely to bring on a medical issue. We know that human beings and the same is true with dogs, so you'd want to rule that out. But I would not be surprised if this dog is simply lonely, upset a best for a bus find their going away. We know that Doug's greed I hope is that the dog is microchip that you lost and I pray that you're able to get that dog back. Not only not only for your dog steak, but for that dog stake into your family. Yeah. Okay. I'm going to maybe called us that and let him just check him over. And because this tale being down has got me that old. How long? How long is available? How long has it been, buddy? For a week. It's been a month. Steve. How long does it usually does it usually take with dogs to get over something like that? There's no answer to that. Because just like with people, it really does very well. Don't be quite a while, you know, Having said that. What you described to economic firmly at the only issue in the dog's acting in every way. OK, other than the tale being down, there could be another reason to that. That would be medical. Any number of reasons. Come to my nine. So yes, here, veterinarian and boy Oh, boy, I sure hope you find your dog and if it turns out to be incidently That there is nothing wrong with your dog, Which would be good. The best therapy for you and your dog Might pee play, taking a tennis ball and seeing our squeaky tight and seeing if you can get your dog a bit. Just give him love. Let's go to Denise Denise, in Lockport. You're on with Steve. Dale. What's your question? Thank you so much for taking my call. I just adopted a rescue pup. She is the boxer Mix 10 weeks old and part of adoption is that they would spay her before releasing the animals, and she was just stayed Wednesday..

Music is so relaxing to me. Thank you so much for sharing with us in these dark times. And a suggestion. Get the 1993 album called Rainforest. Control. I'm Joe is in charge of that, Joe. You may want to check that out, okay? This is somebody who obviously doesn't get the moment is in. Bob. Are you trying to get fired? No, not really. As much as I'd like to sleep late. I don't want to come to that. I hate the moment of Zen. I wanna wake up and not go back to sleep. I love the zone moments sometimes. I don't like the music like on Wednesday, but most of the time you have it, right. Um Ah. See here. Bob, So great to have you back on G n Your moment of Zen is a good idea. But sometimes the soothing tone of your voice is more than enough Nomis Day. Thank you for that. Congratulations, Bob. You have graduated from being simply boring to being a bully that I like the music on the moment of Zen Wednesday. No, you know what I didn't do. I didn't say the guy's name and then spend radio time mocking it and reading mean texts from other listeners. The classy thing would've been to just not mention it again. I stopped listening when brand Meyer was on and you have pushed me out again. I will miss Mary, Dave and Steve. But I can't listen anymore. Oh, no. Now we need to hear from one new listener to make up for this person. But you know what I did hear from the person who sent us that that moment of Zen. That was so controversial, David. Yeah, he e mailed us. He wasn't offended. Yeah, listen to this. Thank you for playing my piece. It's all small on your show. I surely appreciate it made my day the pieces decidedly modeled on Japanese Zen meditation music. It's designed to calm the mind in order to live in each moment. Be well. David Hunter. So there you go. He he was okay with a very Zen like responding, right? Yeah, like whatever. I guess he was listening because he was listening to his music. Or maybe he wasn't listening when you have that that could be to, um and then Ah, number of requests here. Along the lines of this message. Can anyone find out the status of the Marquis Network in Comcast? I know you want the Cubs station anymore, but I think a lot of your listeners would like to know. Thank you. Well, Dave found out that they're on right there. They're on. Xfinity and I checked first I confirmed it on my app. My handy dandy app on my phone And then I also just to make double sure, because we don't have it in the building. We have a different system. I called my wife and had her turn on the TV and check and sure enough, it's their channel to 02 Crane Kenney, their president, the business president for the Cubs. Said that the monthly fee is going to be whatever Comcast elects to charge rates. Very based on your geographic location with Comcast. But ultimately it's their decision how much they want to pass through to subscribers, so it's part of the basic package. But something will show up in your bill. I guess right sounds that way. But what doesn't you know? Let us know. Did you notice that some of the players Tossed foul balls to the cardboard fans in the seats. I hope the socks moved the fans around, so everybody gets a chance to be behind home plate. I hope the TV announcers identify some of the fans. Like they did on Wednesday. Well, yeah, they have been, haven't they? I think so. Yeah, we're and we're going to talk to Kristina Rally for the White Sox later this hour. She can hopefully clarify some of that because it's only supposed to be for this weekend. But there are a lot of people who want in on this. Yeah, they sold out and they Yeah, I believe, you know, they need thio. They need Teo. I think Put put the cardboard cut outs in the grandstands and the outfield. Why not? Well, here's the other thing. Now Fox is saying that they're goingto Have a computer generated fans when they do the games, so they will, I guess, pre op the cardboard cut outs because what if it rains, and they have to put their plastic you're on the cardboard. Although these put the cardboard cutouts in in rice like you do in your phone falls in a toilet. Ah, it's Are you speaking from experience? Yeah. Unfortunately. Unfortunately, Ah, there was one more I was going to get to hear. I confined it Well, I'll get to it. I'll get to it on Monday.

Maybe I'm just living in my own calm world over here. I just always beautiful as some of those beaches are going to be open. People are watching Johnson makes me actually wonder, like Fourth of July traditions. What do you What do you do out there on the Fourth of July? I was talking about this earlier this week. Carmen family We never had any real strong traditions. Now I've always felt like it was hardest summer grill in hanging out. Yeah, but I didn't hit home for you like we never went to a fireworks festival. Really? Never How we're always going to like. They used to have the carnivals and then a fireworks show in out in out in Highland Park that used to have it at Walter's field. Home of the football team. When I was a kid, I know if they still do that, but I don't remember ever really doing that. And then, of course. Mmm. The baseball games. I mean, I started the vending career in 1990 two's. There's a lot of fourth of July is one where I was working. But I don't know. I feel like I kind of feel at a loss like corn on the cob. Nice girls don't really hit hit home for you. It was never like a special It was never really Look like it was a big deal. The fourth of the Conrad family made maybe Aiken. What I remember. It felt like a big deal with the problem was once I feel like the Paul so you guys were doing it right over there. Pop. Apollo's Get the grill going. A little soft on the back 312981 72 100 All right, Phyllis. Welcome in to 7 20 W g n on the team. Hochberg phone line. Go ahead, Phyllis. Hi. I just wanted to add a comment of observation into your conversation. Okay, um The Line away, Jack. When they get when they took him off. I thought that was horrible. Because I I just I thought that was a really good representation. It wasn't meant to be, um Evil or or derogatory in any way when I when in the world did we all get such a thin skin? When did all this political correctness? Become so mainstream in our lives. Did you go to l A. Did you go to Illinois, Phyllis? I did, and it was it was part of it was. It was part of the fabric of your growing up and being out there. Anyway, when when? As a white person when you when you go in a restaurant. Um, maybe I'm South side and it's predominantly black people in there. You may get a little bit alarmed because Of feeling all those eyes on you, and you're different from them. But on the other side of the coin What about black people walking into predominantly white places on all their lives? They must. We need to have a field of more compassion. For what? These People are going through. In their everyday lives. If they just walk in someplace, they know that Isar on them, and they they they know that that there's this this terrible Call it you know, coming across in in and it they're going to get hurt somehow, right? They live in fear they live in fear Constant. Irritation like that. How could how We need to be more sensitive. But I don't agree with all this name changes. Yeah, I got it, Phyllis. Thanks. Thanks for the call Those those super interesting where you took it because you went to different directions that executor Phyllis is going through What I did, which I think is like part of the conversation we're having, because it's like we're not sure what exactly is right. What's too far what's not far enough? I will say this wasn't part of the conversation. And I don't mean this is shadow you by any means, fellas as I'm, a 31 year old white man sitting here talking about a very sensitive and at times uncomfortable conversation, But you know who always seems to be bringing up this whole political correctness thing and how Everything's becoming politically correct is white people and how? How bother they are. Bye bye, things having to change or us maybe going in a different direction, whether it be a team, Nick name or a mascot or how we just completely approached. Our lives, and like I said, it's not that you feel it. It just seems I don't I don't hear black people talking about political correctness and how it could be. The down The end of society in America just seems to be white people that we're so accustomed to what What is basically no way favored us in a lot of ways, so and again, not you, Phyllis. I'm just saying in general, when I keep hearing that come up, it seems to be coming from one group of people well, and I would go. I'll focusing on a different part of Phyllis. This conversation. We had Jared paint on the ear the other day. And he goes into a hot dog store that He's not people that are generally shopping in the store. Do not look like J. P and he's wearing a mask or the middle of a pandemic, and he sees the reaction to himself when he comes in there, and what does he do? He over tips. To create a level of comfort like, Hey, I'm just here because I want to buy a hot dog. I'm not here to Do anything wrong and by the way I'm a fairly successful dude who can afford to give you a nice tip, too. So you know when I come back in here, you know you can feel comfortable. It's like but then I You know, I'm listen to J P. Tell us now. That is an experience that I would never have until and to Philip's point like that's that's what I'm talking about. Imagine just having the compassion for somebody who constantly is looked at differently for no other reason. Right conversation that's been had over and over. Don't judge some of the color of skin but like tryingto put at least a little bit of yourself in their shoes. Try to have a little more compassionate. Phyllis. Great Call 312981 72 100.
