Frito-Lay Strike Could End as Workers Vote on a New Labor Agreement
"Workers who have been striking in Topeka, Kansas, for more than two weeks are voting today on a new labor agreement. Frank Morris of member station K. C U R reports the proposed contract eases some working conditions at the plant and would raise salaries, but those concessions may not be enough to compete in a tight labor market. Union strong Oh, one thing you learn, talking to the strikers outside the sprawling Frito Lay plant Topeka, the people who make Cheetos, Fritos and chips they can work similar long hours. I am a very hardworking woman. I work like him. Helen Teeter done up in a bright red shirt. Big white hat says she has very little time for family. I have no time to go work for them because I've been working seven days a week. Like 84 hours a week. 84 hours a week, Peter says the money's good up to double the normal $20 an hour wage with overtime. In a statement, Frieda Lee says only about 2% of its Topeka workers average more than 60 hours a week. But the company routinely forces workers to pick up extra hours and to skip scheduled days off even those with seniority like Marlon Smith. I've been here 22 years and I still get force for seven days a week. Maybe, like two or 3, 12 2 or 3 12 hour shifts. The contract Smith and others are voting on today would guarantee one day off a week. It would also end what workers call suicide shifts. 2 12 hour shifts with only eight hours in between. There's a proposed 4% raise over the next two years. But there may not be enough workers have more leverage now, and the signs of that are impossible to miss. They just put this up last week. We were out here We watched him put it up. Brad Wiese is pointing out a new billboard just across from the free delay plant Right where the picketers stand it, says the JM Smuckers company now hiring multiple position shift and pay rates, comprehensive benefit packages, So that's pretty much telling us.

"84 with showers and thunderstorms. And then on Friday 82 partly cloudy marshall. Thanks very much 89 right now. Have a good night. Army with harmony. Thank you for listening to the mark. Blazer show Joshi on vacation this week and let's bring him in its Mark Remillard from ABC News for the very latest Moderna. Looking toward a flu shot. Covid shot booster combo kind of thing, right? Yeah, That's right. So first they're testing just a, uh, in a flu shot, and but it's using the the new MRNA technology to make that Flu vaccine, so their first testing a seasonal flu shot, But their eventual hope is that our goal is that they can perhaps combined a seasonal flu shop with shot with a Covid 19 booster shot. Of course, we don't know if those are needed yet and when, but if they are, the company is hopeful that you could really combine the two and just get them done all at one time. Potentially so They're looking into first testing Right now. They've just begun some the first phase of clinical testing on the flu vaccine, which, as I said, that mRNA technology a different type of technology for that vaccine vaccine, and then eventually we'll look to potentially combine the two. So is this. Are they doing testing right now for this? Will this go through the normal testing? And then? Meanwhile, it'll be the The regular style of flu vaccine or flu shot is. Is there a thoughts on that? Yes. So they're going through a phase one to study right now. Phase one and two with about 180 participants for this, uh, flu vaccine. Then eventually, as they look to combine the two they'll have to do testing on that as well, including, you know, safety and efficacy testing. Before anything like that is available, So it's not something that I would expect to see this fall. You know, as we get to the flu season, but Moderna is hopeful. Certainly, for you know there's benefits to the mRNA technology potentially coming to influenza vaccines in general, because these vaccines can be produced so quickly developed so quickly that you can really cut down on the amount of time from the traditional flu vaccine. It takes 6 to 9 months for those vaccines to be developed, which leaves researchers trying to guess which strands are going to be. Circulating the most that year. And so they have to kind of just take a stab at the dark on that, and that's why we see some vaccines. Flu vaccines only 40 to 60% effective. Compare that to the Mrna technology where we've now seen with the Covid vaccine 95% effective and you can develop it in a lot less time. You can really wait and start to see which are the actual vaccine strands that are Circulating most so with the M R N A. Is it toward like for the flu shot and using that technology? Are they thinking they could load that with more of the strands that they could protect against in one shot is is that kind of the thought there? You mean with the flute with loaded with flu strand? Yeah, right. Exactly like the the M R n a technology for the flu shot. Could they loaded with more than you know, Say one strand like the old fashioned. Is that what that that's meant today? Okay, okay. Yes, exactly. So the first one that they're testing right now is targeted for 44 different strands H one n one h three and two influenza B and two different strands of influenza B. So this one actually looks at four different trends similar to a traditional flu vaccine, where they they couple it with a few different strands so that they try to, you know. Cover the basis of what they think is going to be circulating that year. Same thing with this But again if you can cut down on that, 6 to 9 months of development time, you could really start to see. Okay. Now we know, for example, a lot of what informs The flu vaccines is what starts to spread in the winter time in the southern Hemisphere. While where in the summer time here in the northern Hemisphere. You could start looking at that and saying, okay? We know which strands are going to start spreading this year. So let's start tailoring a vaccine more towards that, because you can develop it faster. You could get a better sense of that before you. You know, you put all your eggs in the basket, so to speak. Interesting. Mark Remillard ABC News Thank you very much for the latest on this. We appreciate it. My pleasure. Thank you. Thanks, Mark. Okay, Um, boy, as far as the advantages there are a lot of people who are cocking an eyebrow at this m RNA technology. So now, um How many people that were getting the flu vaccine before are now once this becomes The new flu vaccine. Now it's probably as Mark just said. It's not going to be this year. But right now, I just heard a bunch of screaming in my head of people. And I'm talking to the tune of millions who are saying the RNA technology is not something they want to mess with. And if they turn this flu shot all the way into that technology. How many people then stop getting the flu shot that are getting it now. Because that will be millions. I guarantee will say we're not cool with this M RNA technology until the FDA approves it. And then even if the FDA approves it Will they still be okay with it? That's a reason. I mean, think about this. I understand what he said the 40 to 60% efficacy. For the flu shot yearly 60% on a good year because again they're guessing at which strand they think is going to be the dominate strand of flu. If you will not clearly there's more than just one. For every flu season, and then you're loading a an M R N a version of the flu shot with four different strands, so it covers four of the strands out of and I'm not sure how many There are of flu, but clearly that is going to be a better percentage that one of those He's going to take care of something that you may get. I mean, think about this for a second, and this is getting more and more confusing. Now you throw in its in combination with a booster type combo. I mean, what about people that Want to get the flu vaccine, but they don't they didn't get the covid vaccine. And then this flu shot has the covid booster. And now you've got people going. I'm not getting the flu, either. So it's It's almost like it's counterproductive where they're trying to do this. Also, I think it was great, but at the same time, it's one of the worst things ever. When it comes to what it feels like the direction we're going, and that is the speed of the development. Of the vaccine. I mean, Trump did a great thing pushing that through. Of course, you know, the Biden administration doesn't want to give any kind of credit. Trump and his organization and his administration for getting this the speed of the development of the vaccine. But now a lot of people going Hey, we can probably, you know, push this through quickly like he did and look what's happening. So it's almost like, uh, I don't know. It's a It's good that it happened the way that it did. But it's bad at the same time kind of moving forward if everything starts being kind of measured that way, right? I don't know. There's I can see a lot of problems with them trying to do this. This RNA version technology for the flu shot again. I I see millions of people..

Can You Use Hormone Therapy With a History of Vascular Risk?
"For the average woman. The risk of blood caught on oral hormone. Therapy is one in a thousand and this comes from the women's health initiative and that was statistically significant. Now the reason we care about blood clot to a one. We don't want you to have any type of blood clot but we care about it because if a piece of that clot breaks off and goes to your lungs you could have. What's called a pulmonary. Embolism which certainly could be life threatening. So we don't want you to have bled caught and we definitely joined boy so you don't have a risk for a pulmonary. Embolism now the risk of pulmonary. Embolism you take that one. Step further on oral Equine estrogens was much lower than that and no statistically significant so we just need to point out which is sickness statistically significant on trans dermal preparation so using dial which is the bio identical esther. Dial but again. Fda approved bioidentical estrogen. You don't wanna use compounded non. Fda approved esther dial on the transdermal preparations of dial the patches. Bright in the gel. The risk for blood clot is is lower. It's about one in two thousand now. I want to tell you that the risk for blood clot is highest in the first three to six months and after that timeframe it pretty much goes down to zero so to say this in layman's terms if you have been on your hormone therapy for more than six months and you haven't had a blood clot. You're probably not because your risks going to go right back down to zero. Your risk for blood clot does not continue to increase like every single year. That doesn't make any sense. What could increase your risk for blood clot is if you have another cardiovascular or vascular disease and that's why if you're on hormone therapy you wanna have your annual visit with your menopause doctor and discuss with them any new medical conditions or diagnoses that you

Like you know it's completely different like people one have the time to do this. They are happy to sit through and watch all these like multiple episodes at a time. And i think that's complete right. And i think especially also to the detriment of this movie is that they turn this movie off and can think about it and there's no movie theater driving home and thinking about it. They can either live tweet. It kim leah's like just turn it off while that's sucked and then you know it kind of feeds into an you can easily screenshot. You can easily record video. A this is my socks and there's not as buffer of a movie being in theaters and you have to wait to share those moments and maybe that kind of criticism dissipates somewhat somewhat. And it's like again like when you put everyone in the same arena with so many of the tv shows that are out right now. You are basically getting to watch a movie with every episode. You are getting to sit there and watch this very well. For the most part. I would say the level of cross that goes into a lot of like prestige television shows.

That mechanic is never explained that he has to touch people in order for to make wishes like. Why does he need more. Why does he yeah. People to make wishes like i want explained like okay. I understood that he was abusing other. People's wishes achieve more power that made sets but then it started getting to give everyone a wish and then take some things but then was like. Why don't you're so right that like the way that he seems to accomplish..

"I guess i mean yeah the one thing i will say before we get to a patriot pasco because talk about him a lot but is i thought because i thought that was going to be a sandman. Oh it'd be super down with because there is the dream stone. And that is a whole thing san man and all that business thought and so what i what i what i read afterwards which is absolutely not clear in this movie is the stone is made by the god of lies. Whoever that is a very lesser known. Greek god knows about unlike aries in the first one who everyone knows about it and it is the woman with the golden wing situation was like named for the goddess of truth. I believe and so that was the central piece of this is like oh it's like allies against truth which kind of comes up later but it is. It is like i had. That was like a wikipedia article. I had to find like that is not clear in the movie whatsoever. No it's bad like like them discovering it's like oh it's a god of lies like what's his name. The god of like listening. I know it's a different mythology. But it's like i feel like they're wanting to sing low key but like because that's what i felt like i was like okay because it seems like colby. Yeah and it's like what first of all if you all of like. I think it's roman mythology. Why don't you just go through each like bad guys. Like a god like like really clearly though. Yeah it's it's not clear at all. And like i think what's frustrating again. By the end. I kind of saw that they were going for the truth thing. But look even with like it's so muddled all of it is so muddled and like there's that cold open where it's like diana and i guess what they were trying to say was like you shouldn't tell live because i don't i don't know otherwise because otherwise that has no relation to anything that you can think of whistle with a cult open was. You shouldn't cheat like you shouldn't wish for your boyfriend come back. That's what i thought. I was like arm saris or are they going to say that like she was cheating because she wishes that she had her boyfriend with her again..

"I mean that part aside that was the weirdest but all. There's just the mechanism how the at work is never really explained well or if it is explained like far later in the movie than you would want probably because the whole i mean it's easy like yeah because the when that happened i was like oh so it gives you your wish. It's like it's like it's not what you really wanted right but then when you find out like no it's power was diana's wish specifically but he'd be broken another person's funny because also neither of them are phased when the nuns they accept it both of them. And so it's kind of diana. Maybe you could understand. Because it's like okay. She made the wish ships accepting this because she did it. But chris no question. He's just like. I don't know if i'm here. Great right an influence. She's like she's in like a one second like who are you. And then he's like. Oh let me just tell you the one line. I said back in nineteen fourteen and also give you my watch. That i'm like whoa. How did you bring your watch but not your own body. Because it's like it's it's it's it's a. It's a wish mechanism so you don't need to create some weird additional like. Oh this is he means a behind her nation body thing and then oh you're also found weird so then they're back it this guy's apartment and every time shows exactly. I was like the life often but was weird as one. There's no distrust but that doesn't distrust between like Which kind of could have created some interesting tension of learning to understand each other again. I think that could have been an interesting romantic. But then she also says he's like you have an ancient day and she's like you look different and it's like that was. That was part where i was like. What what is she saying..

"Yesterday is the way. She is acting all the time when he's on yet no totally. I mean it's it's very weird. The way the movie i mean. Oh my god we have to get on the way the handle with the way that this comes about the mechanism. That's next because that is a whole fucking thing but the one thing i will say before. That is that that whole the whole time. He is in the movie. There are some parts that i do their parts that i like in spite of myself because some of its kind of but overall it just feels very fan service. It feels like it is there because it's like by which we all do of course but it's like it's basically like look at all these like fun adventures. They're having in the eighties and it's like it's very strange and i think i wanna put a pin in that because i do want to talk about the ways that this movie was meant for theatre and falls flat when its way so when he was like. I think you're also you're talking about the different thing. But when i think is like has you know he. She's showing him the world again in the eighties. And he's wide eyed much. Diana was wide eyed. In the. I was like i understand the parallel. However it's just like eat just really the the decision of okay. Let me backtrack like this decision. Odd to me i understand. You wanna bring back chris. Pine i understand in the comic book. Steve trevor is constantly diana's life through decades and so in the comics some mechanism is like oh steam turbines alive on. It's like so i understand. There's always gonna be some flimsy. Excuse why he's alive that's fine. I understand that. I'd also like to see chris. Pine in the sequel. So i wasn't against that so like my suspension of disbelief with here. Yes but the wishing on the gemstone. Okay embodying a different man. This is my notes from the section..

"Okay so this is. This is something we've got to talk about because this to me was when i was like who wrote this movie. What is happening. This is crazy because so the whole deal with this stone is that like. Oh it's a monkey's paw but take something from you. And so the thing that takes from diana is like her powers which is interesting shirt but then the thing they say that it takes from barbara is her and that was extremely frustrating to me because as someone who has in many times but told a nice real. You're such a nice girl. It's fucking infuriating. No one wants to be told that all the time right you know you you wanna have dimension and so it's frustrating to see like the messaging then is like. Oh but you should. You should your lesson that you should learn. is that ono. it's okay. It's okay that you were almost assaulted. It's okay that no one sees you. It's okay that you're frumpy and all these things because you have warmth and you should be happy with that and that's enough. That's that's a crazy thing to happen. To wonder woman in. It reminds me just because of how far. We've got into like feminism is. I think you start seeing A lot of people talking about. Oh i no longer. Oh people to be nice to. It's like because people take advantage of of nice people. I think that also applies to a lot of people not just women. I think there's like this kind of idea of saying saying no being able to not. I think you also see. Don't worry at all that kind of a special like the work place and whatnot so it is interesting to kind of see the conversation and i mean this is like in the past few years. It's not like new stations. I think at least the past five years is interesting to know but she needs to be nice like it's good to be nice and it's less i mean in line..

"It's about women so there should be like a sexual assault like being way a women's issue and it's like christ like we can't i. I'm sure we're going to get into this. Just like talking. about how. How the weirdness of being a woman is shown shown but like exaggerated in the way that that guy talks to her in the way that all these guys were like. Hey what the fuck is going on like this is so i think this is one of the greatest strengths of birds of prey is that it gave this feeling and haas threw out of this kind of potential of danger of these men against like harlequin and a lot of the other women and birds of prey of you know necessarily being like hey lady worry do it now. Nothing but like but like inbred sprinklers is kind of like veiled like the threat is always there. The threat of violence and assault is always there. But it's done in a subtle way that like they live in it they understand. That's how it is. And i think there's In particularly the steamer harlequin has taken off drunk by these two guys. That are trying to mess with her. And it's done in a really coercive way that's like. Yeah that doesn't feel good but like it's kind of the world that these women living and that's very similar to the world like women liban now and like and not just women but like this is more specific on that. And i think for this it just so she's walking alone in this guy's yelling at her and drunk and then in and i do really want to go back to the fact that this movie thinks that her beating up her potential like us like the guy who's going to assault her as this is her turning point into a villain. This is how she's now a bad person because she wanted to take revenge rama's man and and whether or not using violence is answer to these things the fact that this movie says..

"Rings hollow because also like a beautiful woman sitting at a beautiful restaurant herself with a nice glass of wine. That looks like a good fucking evening to me. And i know what they're talking trying to say just like this doesn't feel like appropriate because the poor trigger being like table for one mess and she's like yeah table and i was like this is like this woman can't eat at a restaurant by it's that so like you just so surface level. It's so not even any to be like introspective of like. Look at how sad she is she dinner alone. It if you're eight smears like that that's how we notice this woman's tortured because she has dinner lung. It's like that because she doesn't have somebody this like you'll see as we continue to continue on this episode. But i think the biggest thing is i don't think they realized when they're writing certain scenes the implications that people would take from them is that i think and i think it's very odd because you know i really liked the first one and yet i'm getting this five of like oh and it reminds me i don't know if you've ever been a woman at a bar or a restaurant or somewhere where you're by yourself just reading a book or whatever and someone comes up to you and be like. Oh you're must be so sad 'cause your loan and you just like i've had that happen to be on a train while i was reading and i was like anything. It's so irritating. Because i was enjoying my free time. And it's like why bother me and and that's what this movie is that person who bothered you and it's like an and just for them who assumed that this woman's like sad 'cause she's eating alone is so just like like it wasn't even a good choice of her like showing that it's like you could have shown i think that's it. This feels like the first draft script. It doesn't feel it doesn't even that it feels like these are the note cards that they wrote before they got writing. The script jumbled which we will get to you. But i think the other part of this other comparison. I was going to make the winter soldier. Also that you know that movie shows bucky is the which i would make the steve trevor analog here he is a symbol of the real problem. Which is steve. Rogers doesn't know where he fits whereas this one is steve. Trevor is a symbol of data. And it's not about like her. Like i like you said like no mortal and i have so. Yeah it's like it's like this feels like that feels like a placeholder scene and that's like that's like with film school student..

"Saying she's people and i'm like i don't want that for this character and with her being this lawn but then she also works in museums. So it's like there's people you're not talking to your coworkers like are you not inner brian people in any sense. It's it it doesn't really lead. Yeah and i agree. It's like it just feels like she's just like i want to speak already had the greatest of my life so everyone can leave and i had one really good friend and no one else can compare. It's like i don't want that to unfortunate. Yeah i think you know. It's difficult to say this nicely. But i think part of the issue is that godot is just not a super expressive. And unfortunately i think again you know the first one did a great job of bringing to life like her warmth and like her genuineness and all these things but again like this. This script doesn't give her chances show that she's a good person except for like a few brief glimpses and then the you know she's i don't know i just had a real problem even more for some reason in this one with how she looks in this movie because she is so perfect in every single scene whether it's fighting whether she's at a party all the time always looks the same perfect hair perfect makeup all the time you know and that was so frustrating. Because i was like the most interesting time for me for her character was when she was like hurt and couldn't he'll really upset and i was like. Oh something's happening right now but other than that. I think it's something has happened in this movie where she is just lacking bat. Charisma that you need for this character. And unfortunately it's just like it doesn't she just doesn't she's she suffers from. What what. I'm gonna call main character syndrome. Where all the other characters are like so much more interesting than she is. Yeah and i think it's again like i don't want add too much top. It's hard especially when you're acting against like chris pine and kristen wig and address cal. It's like you have a lot of charismatic people in this movie. I think compared to these people. It doesn't look good and i agree. I think she can project warrant like she did in the first one but this kind of moby sad maybe trouble. Diana doesn't come across any way that you could really see where on like i think again. The best comparison is like chris evans. In winter soldier..

"Where did she like to just give you. These flashes of things. She's done but would know contact. So you have to either. Google or someone on twitter is gonna tell you which is not the way you find out things in movies. Generally noth and so to me. it feels very hollow. It's like it just expects you to assume she's been the same for seventy years and she's sad. She eats dinner alone. Like those are the two things they give you. I mean yeah okay. So her her relationship with steve trevor. In this movie chris. Pine is is so frustrating. Because it's like all the bones are there for it to make a nice statement about like yes. You can be a strong woman but you still are loan. You still wish that you had a partner stuff and yet they still managed to like fungal that with the overall vestige of this movie which is basically that women shouldn't badly among many. There's several messages but for her. It feels like it's like women shouldn't want things or you're selfish you don't you should want her love of your life by because you're selfish even though you fight crime nearly on a daily basis yes and i. It's so weird because it's like in also you know. There's a long time between when he was alive in when he reappears so it's like we need some contextual kinda. How does she feel about him and like they they kind of go into early and it just and you know it's only feels like because she's lonely not really because he was the greatest low you know. It's very odd to me. How they kind of set this. Like the wishing gelato boy. I'll get into that. I have some questions. But i think you brought it up where like yet. It's been seventy years. So i get why you would be sad. Of course what's interesting is like this..

"On this part of the so many shots as people getting run over by cars with forever john wig. There should be like a ruby road. I'm sarah. I'm kelly kauffman and together with you dear listener before the bad from the next film. Hello halo fitness. Welcome to the bad feminist film. close happy holidays. Happy break we are coming to you. In that strange limited space. Between christmas and new year's i hope i hope most of us that we start getting a break But we have come back to you from break because we're here to talk about a truly baffling wonder woman. Nineteen eighty-four what we're talking about this week and and for those who don't like we also reviewed the original one zero one at first came out so if you do wanna check out we definitely recommend and we really like the first one. So that's kind of where we're coming from. And i have to say this is a really weird movie and easy to where it's like a we were just talking before just baffling in its execution and the choices. It makes every turn. I don't know if you've every time i was like i. Why yes so. Obviously if you haven't seen this we are going to talk about spoilers it's currently streaming on. Hbo max which is like a whole part of this that we talk about. This could be a very intense an extensive conversation. I feel just going off of our notes which is like six pages long so we have some thoughts and feelings but yeah overall not not the best movie. I've seen not the best seem really. I've seen which is saying something yes already. Why is it has such a wide varying quality that you really do. It's it's really a mixed bag of any mixed bag. And i really liked off command because i think it really went for something. A little more. Can't be a little more ridiculous. And that worked. And i think i'm on the opposite spectrum. I really like birds of prey which tried to have a really great focus on a lot of the female characters in dc. And i think especially. Because of that movie i find this movie entirely baffling in. Its most tamest like character. Who's like a woman. Yes well it really think the thing that got me is like besides every piece of this which i which is very confusing strange but it did remind me that like oh like something is something is rotten in the state of dc. Something is going on over here that they are not the few movies that are decently good or fun or anything like that are the outlier seems unfortunately And you know to me. It's like when the two movies that are the best. Which are i would say between men and one woman the reason those workers because they just kind of fun first starter movies but then i yeah i have not seen another movie out of dc. Besides the opposites pray that like actually not only executes a movie in a good way executes it in a understandable form of storytelling because this is so many problems in just the base level of like they tell the story. And it's it's just for being really understand is that you know patty jenkins came back to make this booby..
