Then we have the risk of coastal flooding from storm surges. Coming up the river as the river narrows the water level skate. Even higher in our region than in some of the coastal regions along the atlantic. Even without extreme weather sea levels are rising and pushing the river closer to flood.

"My mom was also shot and killed answering the front door of my parents home. On friday december fifth two thousand and three. She was killed by honestly that we didn't we didn't know who it was. For almost eleven years Went unsolved for a long time and in the interim period He killed two other people and it was actually their murders and the similarities. End the ballistics that allow my mom's murder to be solved but my my younger brother and my dad discovered her. She was supposed to meet them for lunch and she didn't show up and they came back to the house and found her in the front hall. She was killed With a tiny little gun. It was North american arms. Five shot mini revolver. That's another thing. I didn't learn until just a few years ago but the killer. He liked that gun and he used it for all three Because he could fitted inside his sleep so he could knock on the door or ring the bell and have somebody answered the door and not see coming. He shot her three times. She didn't die instantly. She probably suffered Fairly considerably and for a long long time. It was unsolved. My my dad was at the time. The elected sheriff of alexandria virginia and so there was a lot of attention when i left the funeral. Six days later onto a wall of cameras cameramen jumped out of the bushes Out front of my parents home. When i went back to get the clothes that we going to bury my mom in i mean so there was an amount of glare and it was salacious and it was unsolved and my dad was the sheriff and there was all of this and it a very safe neighborhood and it was a you know white middle class neighborhood in the suburbs where you know these things quote don't happen and that actually meant that for a long time. I didn't do this work. It was too hard into weird and the questions around. My mom's murder were unpredictable and often really personal in ways. That didn't feel safe and so it was after after. My mom's killer was convicted on november. Second two thousand fifteen and that was another weird one. I mean if there's a moment if there was a moment that i'm scared her that i've ever been scared in my life. It sitting in that courtroom with my brother. My dad passed away Unfortunately before My mom's killer was identified indicted and convicted. But we've been told all along that you know it might not come. It might be a split verdict might ended up the time line might seem surmountable to the jury. You know. there's anybody left out of the cold it's going to be. you guys. Were sitting in a courtroom holding hands and workout seven. So we're not going to know whether we're going to have this. Incredibly vulnerable moment in a room filled filled to the brim with press. And all the rest of it. And and not get the relief that we're seeking or whether we were and luckily for us we We did i've never been. We're grateful to twelve people might tire life And it's one of the weird things. And i don't know if you feel this way but you know i don't know who they are. I don't know their names. I can't i mean. I am a persistent center of thank. You know the right and and they've given me this incredible gift. Probably one of the most important i've ever received except for you know my husband and two kids and i. I can't ever really thank them properly. It's a funny. It's a funny thing. But after that happened i started thinking and it took me some time. It took me time just to adjust to a different reality where i lived experience. My whole lived. Experience could come into my daily life in a way that it just wasn't practical for it to before i started thinking about well case. There's something i can. I can here. I'm a person who does things right. I know stuff And so gosh about three years ago around this time of year actually went out for a long run and i thought while heck what if i ran a marathon. I was twenty six when my mom was killed. Yes but not like not like this. Like i've gotten super weird about running away. I was not before What if i ran a marathon for my mom and i went home and looked on the internet and it turned out that they were the d. c. rock and roll. Marathon was on my mom's seventieth birthday. I was turning forty about six weeks later and i thought well this is a sign like i should do this and so so i decided to do that and i thought well that doesn't feel that's great. That doesn't feel like enough. What can i do with that And my parents were they were. I've checked the records. They were brady. Donors they were supporters And i'm i know i can take a look But it seemed like an opportunity to do some good and also to share my voice in my own way did some blogging In the ramp up to raise money for brady for that marathon and i raised about thirty thousand bucks. That was not quite three years ago. Which as it was great it was an is wonderful really for anybody listening and really really willing to it but it was this really interesting gift of just having a different relationship to the story being able to tell my own story to talk about what how the loss fit in my life more largely what i've learned from it what i just how i carry it. How it what shape it takes. How that changes and and to have that be supported and really validated by so many people people. I knew people that just heard about it from somebody else or on the tv or the newspaper or whatever which is really gratifying and it was a different kind of attention it was and that felt really good then it just sort of kind of naturally took its course did a little bit of stuff around the edges with brady and then i know how to do this work. I'm doing now which is fundraising guys And and nonprofit management stuff probably more generally but it just happened that there was a role here that made sense for who i am as a professional

Politician, Cardiss Collins
"Today's politician was one of the longest serving women of color in the US Congress. She spent several of her over two decades of service being the only black woman in the chamber. Let's talk about Cardis Collins. CARDIS. Robertson. Was Born on September twenty fourth nineteen thirty one in Saint Louis Missouri. When cardis turned ten, her family moved to Detroit where she attended high school. After graduation, cardis moved to Chicago to live with her grandmother and find a job. She worked in a mattress factory before joining the Illinois Department of Labor as a stenographer. At the same time, she also studied accounting at Northwestern University. In. Nineteen fifty eight Cardis Mary George W Collins. The couple had a son Kevin the following year. After graduating from college in Nineteen, Sixty, seven, Cardis was promoted to secretary then became an accountant and auditor for the Illinois Department of Revenue. All the while she supported her husband's campaigns, for Alderman, committee men and US representative. Cardis also gained her first direct political experience as Committee Woman of the Twenty Fourth Ward Democratic Organization. In nineteen seventy George won seat in the US House representing the predominantly African American west side of Chicago. He was elected following the death of his predecessor. He served two terms and was particularly passionate about improving the lives of black people serving in the military. Shortly, after winning election to serve another term George died in a plane crash. Carts was devastated by the loss of her husband. Through her grief. She announced her candidacy to fill her husband's congressional seat. She was supported by the city mayor and won the nomination with eighty four percent of the vote. She then won the election on June Fifth Nineteen, seventy-three with ninety, two percent of the vote that made Cardis the first black woman to represent Illinois in Congress. Transition into her new congressional role wasn't easy. She was politically inexperienced and wasn't confident enough to voice all of her opinions right away. She relied on her colleagues to show her the ropes and she later said once people learned I had something to say I gained confidence. Hardest is main goal is a representative was to improve life for the on Chicago's West Side. Along with other low income communities and people of color across the country. She always kept the well being of her constituents as her main focus. Spending eight days a month in her district to remain accessible. Because of the attention, she paid her voters she went back her seat comfortable margins for two straight decades. Throughout her tenure, she would serve on several committees including the influential committee on Energy and Commerce. She started serving on the committee on government operations. She participated in two different subcommittees later, working to tighten regulations on the transportation of toxic materials and improve air travel safety. In nineteen seventy nine. Cardis was elected president of the Congressional Black Caucus. She was only the second woman to earn this honor. She openly criticized President Jimmy Carter's record on civil rights, as well as his failure to make Dr Martin Luther King Junior's birthday a national holiday. Cards spent much of her time in Congress defending affirmative action programs and ensuring equal funding and attention to women and people of Color. Curtis staunchly advocated Breast Cancer Awareness. In nineteen ninety, she wrote a law expanding Medicare coverage for elderly and disabled women to receive. Mammograms. She also designated October as national breast cancer awareness month. In nineteen ninety-seven after twelve consecutive terms cardis decided not to run for re election she returned to Chicago and later decided to move to Alexandria Virginia. She passed away on February third twenty thirteen. She was eighty one years old. Cars Collins overcame grief and hesitation to speak up and make a positive difference for people in her district and across the country.

Dividend Cuts, Drone Deliveries, and Disney Plus
"Happy Monday. I'll believe you if you say it's Monday. They all do together as we have discussed before it's Day I know it's Day and I think it's not weekend. That's that's how I measure the days now not weekend day night. Three categories so Dan. Let's talk some. Gm less toxic dividends less toxic drones and as we wrap things up. Let's talk about something that you just wrote about Disney plus in whether or not it can save Disney stock but let's begin with the market now at the time of our taping here midday Monday all the major indices up slightly in this as part of a month Dan. This has just been an incredible month for the Dow. Snp THE NASDAQ ALL UP. Big having their best month in years so I want to start there as an investor. Are You thinking about this market? Because we have the market just chugging along this month and at the same time we have most states still under stay at home orders so I don't think about the market in the short term and right now. It's so emotional. So if there's a tiny little hint if like a village in Alabama says it's going to reopen a gym the market bounces up in and has a good day Which which I like that that there is sort of an appetite for optimism. Because we've been through such a miserable time that said I'd be looking at companies that are going to do well during this and after or companies that you really liked beforehand that you believe will bounce back when this is over. So I'm not looking to sort of ride out these trends or see what's going on or figuring out where the bottom is a. I think we've got some reckoning left to come but that's just a guess okay. So let's talk about some of those companies. Gm General Motors announcing its suspending. Its dividend and stock buybacks now shares. Gm down around forty percent for the year Dan. Gm has stopped producing cars. It has not yet announced a timeframe for when it will resume production. Gm is producing ventilators and personal protective equipment. What do you make them the GM news that it will suspend its dividends and stock buybacks? Yeah I think it's smart to preserve your cash when you're not selling any product. I understand I got some blowback on the live show from people saying Oh but you know we count on those dividends. I get it but you can't count on a dividend if a company goes bankrupt so I would rather GM stays in business longer puts itself in a situation where it has more cash long and a longer runway because eventually Americans will need cars this will end and people who were putting off a purchase will buy prices are really good so if you need a car it's actually a pretty good time to buy a car But I am in favor of taking being cautious as you can be right now. If you're a company okay. So along those lines I want to ask you about Disney. Disney has taken some heat for not suspending. Its dividend. What do you think yeah? I think it's a mistake. Look Disney's in a good position in terms of their available cash but they've also borrowed quite a bit of money. I mean. They borrowed the money for the Fox purchase. So to be paying cash. When you're not operating it seems like an artificial way to prop up your stock price. And I'm just not concerned about Disney's stock price in the short term. I'm I'm guessing. Executives are who often have bonuses tied to Stock Price? Okay well we're GONNA talk more Disney at a bit. But first I wanNA talk about a new development in the world of social distancing. Ups on Monday announcing that CVS and ups will start using drones. Yes drones next week to deliver prescription medication to the villages retirement community in Florida. Now Dan you are in Florida. The villages is the biggest retirement community in the country now. The drones will drop off prescriptions to a location near the community and a truck will finish the delivery. So this isn't door to door but this is going from. Cvs to somewhere near where people live. Yeah I mean. They've been testing this it. I think it's actually in Virginia in some rural town with the idea that you could bring prescriptions right to the door and you're gonNA see combinations of this and Robo trucks and other things delivering but the villages a unique place. These are generally stand alone homes or row houses And it's an entire community over one hundred thousand people that are all at least fifty five plus generally a lot older. So there's a lot of reason to minimize contact for these people. But I'm not entirely sure how drone to a truck to the door. Minimizes contact that. That seems to be the same amount of contact of driving the truck to the community and bringing it to the door. I it's a little strange for me but that said I think you're GONNA see Niche use of drones doing things like this drone isn't going to like bring you a Burrito and put it in your hand but it might leave your cvs box at your door or on your balcony or some other location if you live someplace. That isn't densely packed city. Okay so when you look over the next five to ten years in someone who studies the retail landscape when you look at the role of drones are you bullish or bearish. I know you say they're not gonNA be delivering burritos. But what's the role going forward? It's going to be niche. It's going to be filling. It's going to be a supplement in rural places where it doesn't make sense to send a truck it might sense and it's obviously state ver- to send drones but I don't think New York City or Alexandria. Virginia wants a sky filled with drones. That seems like a recipe for disaster. So they will be used. They will have a place but drones are much more likely to be used and are being used by say Walmart in a warehouse to take inventory. That is a much safer. It's it's it's not gonNa hit a you know a random person walking by. There's going to be a lot of commercial uses for drones but it isn't going to be to replace the Pizza Guy. Okay and no beer and wine up. Maybe some here in wine but probably I don't WanNA drone delivering a wine bottle. Have you ever had to why not if you're stairs? It's not fun now. That just seems fraught with issues. I mean I don't. I don't think you could do that. You know what daretodream dare to dream of a day and let's Talk Disney. We talked a little earlier but I want to talk about a few different developments here including something you just wrote about but first Disney today announcing big plans for May fourth now may fourth They will begin. Streaming Star Wars. The rise of skywalker. That'll be two months earlier than they planned. And then Disney also announcing that the final episode of the Clone Wars and the first episode of the mandatory and documentary will be available on May fourth so with all that in mind. You just wrote a piece this weekend. Dan Entitled Canned Disney Plus Save Disney stock. So can it. Yeah and. That's a very melodramatic headline I will. I will put out that. The goal of headlines are to get readership because I actually believe Disney. We'll be fine. It's other businesses. We'll be okay but what I want to really point out is. People are underplaying. Just how BIG DISNEY CAN BE A? When they last reported they went from ten million to fifty million subscribers that wasn't even based on corona virus growth that was based on adding a few new countries like eight or nine countries. Netflixing one hundred eighty one hundred somewhere in that ballpark. Disney plus is probably at seventy five million. Now wouldn't shock me. If in year there at one hundred twenty five one hundred fifty million and their cost structure is dramatically lower than Netflix. Netflix has to produce like two hundred series of quarter and throw them at a wall. They have to pay huge money to comedians. A Disney can pick and choose a few series based on its named intellectual property. You're GonNa Watch the new show starring one of the avengers. You're going to watch a new STAR WARS SHOW. You'RE GONNA watch when rise of skywalker is released. They don't have to spend the money. Net flicks does. This thing is going to be a cash cow quickly. Okay so I want to ask you more about that. And specifically the net flicks piece of that when you talk about their cost structure. How long can net flicks play that game? They're going to have to play that game. It lessens as they get into every market and they've localized content. They don't have the expense of having to record dialogue and new languages. They'll have some shows in each market. Eventually they're in a position where they can may be cut their contents bent in half but their content spend six to eight billion dollars a year whereas Disney pretty much everything Disney puts out on Disney. Plus that's original to the service is going to be a guaranteed hit when when you're watching a show in the Star Wars universe. It is not a big surprise that star wars fans. Watch it So Disney is really in a position where they can keep costs under control there also in a position where they can raise the price pretty easily six ninety nine a month. That's a great introductory price. But do you really think families are going to drop it if it goes to nine ninety nine over the course of the next three years Netflix too. I think can go up to about nineteen ninety nine and that will help some of their deficit but these are the two winners in the space and for Disney this is going to be its biggest segment. Maybe as soon as as well this year it'll probably be its biggest segment because others are closed but in a normal year this will be Disney's biggest segment if not in two thousand twenty one possibly almost certainly by two thousand twenty two and Dan Netflix. Still growing like a weed for the last quarter. They added almost sixteen million subscribers. So one hundred eighty three million subscribers now for Netflix When you look in as we're talking here we're talking about Disney on Netflix. Do you think there's room for both Disney plus and Net flicks to succeed over the next five to ten years or if this were wrestling is essentially a cage match. Were only one of them. Comes OUT ALIVE? No these two already one. It's a case of whether there's a market for HBO Max and Peacock and all the other services out there. Those are going to be harder cells but remember as people cut the cord and they're still eighty something million Americans who pay for cable. That's a hundred to two hundred dollars comes available to some of those people already have netflixing Disney plus so they'll probably dabble in ad one or two secondary services. But I think right now. This is a battle for the bronze medal. I if somebody can establish themselves in third place. That's a strong position to be in. I'm SORTA not counting. Who which is a Disney owned property because who was gonNA get bondholders by a lot of people with Disney plus and it's probably going to do reasonably well and be a driver for Disney. There's not a of original content being produced on on who so it's not that biggest spend But Yeah Disney a net flicks have have already lapped everybody. What about Amazon? Should we include them in the Disney Net flicks discussion? How many shows do you watch Amazon? you know we. I think we we watch a fair amount on Amazon prime. I think really I forget it exists Amazon is the Ebay of streaming services. How you know you forget. They exist and a lot of stuff. That's really hyped. When you actually dig into the research and find out how many people are watching it. It's like three hundred thousand people and they have some shows I've been interested in. I hear good things about the boys. I think that's what it's called and generally I've tried a few things on Amazon and nothing has struck. You're not paying for it. I don't precisely see where it's a particularly big value add. Would you cancel prime if they got Yeah No. I'm not cancelling prime. Yeah it makes no sense to cancel prime because right now. I don't know I'm delivering getting deliveries from. I was like four times a day. Like that's I think of something. I go in and put an Amazon Order. And now you have this fun. Amazon of will show up as opposed to previously when it would come the next day so I just don't think it's a relevant service. I don't precisely understand why they pay for it. Frankly okay okay so. I'm going to count you skeptical of. Do you have a Netflix? Or Disney plus recommendation for me. Well if you haven't watched the mandatory and you should absolutely watch the delorean oriented so right that I also on Netflix. This is a bit of a sleeper but I really liked glow It's based on the eighties women's wrestling group very very campy. The original show actually a little dark and vicious really well done. It's one of those things where you could say. Well I'm not a pro wrestling fan. It's not really about wrestling. It's about the relationships between the people And my wife didn't like it so that that's I would say women would like it but in case of my life that wasn't true and my wife really really really likes ozark and I have not been able to make myself watch it yet. Okay Good Ozark and glow there you go okay for our desert poll as we wrap up here over the next five years. You're on a desert island and you have to you have to buy one of these stocks and hold it. So let's go. Gm Disney net flex. Let's throw in. Cvs and UPS Disney without a shadow of a doubt. Cvs would be attractive if they didn't just by a health insurance company which absolutely is is something that makes me a little bit nervous but Disney has the number one theme park brand families are GonNa come back to Disney up. Whenever they put out the next Disney movies avengers Pixar or whatever it is people are going to go see those. I'm not worried about that company in the long term at all. Okay well there. You have it Dan Klein. Thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me
