"Because the thing is, I used to work at a bookstore and one of the most satisfying things was just, you know, when people ask, oh, I like this. What can I read that will match my taste? And it's like, well, if you like fantasy and you want to try something new like Jade city exists and then once they finish Jade city and the green bone saga, I can recommend them all of these other books that did not exist four years ago. That was not a genre that existed and now there's a whole bookshelf and that was really satisfying to me as someone who worked at a bookstore and pushed books onto people, being like read this. Yeah. I agree. Perhaps me being in the bubble of this podcast where I only read books, skew my perspective. Sometimes hard to remember that we still have a long ways to go in terms of general proliferation, right? For those of us who work in the field and see all the full richness of stuff that's being written and published now, it might feel like gosh, there's things have changed so much. And they have, but I think there's still so there's still so much more runway in terms of that becoming mainstream, like you look at, I don't know, goodreads choice awards, right? How sort of predictable they still are. Despite there being a lot more variety that's out there. So yeah, the battle is certainly not one. And thank goodness for folks like you who are out there banging the drum and pushing books into people's hands. I mean, bullying people into reading something is, you know, it's my favorite pastime.

"americans post" Discussed on Against The Odds
"Once singer finishes staking the tent, he wipes his hands and admires the meadow therein. The grass is lush, and wildflowers dot the landscape. Juniper and pine trees make for a fairytale setting. His friend John Dickey is setting up his own tent nearby, while Beth rodden and her boyfriend Tommy Caldwell are setting up another that they'll share. They've all arranged their sleeping quarters around the big dome tent that's going to be their dining area. Singer eyes the bright yellow fabric of their sleek expensive tents and realizes it makes them look like they've come from another world. Their gear seems so futuristic in the middle of this untouched landscape. In the distance, singer spots a man walking towards them from across the meadow. He gives the group a big smile and waves. From his previous climbing experiences and remote regions of the world, singer knew that the locals would be curious about four Americans posting up in the valley. He's excited to meet their first visitor. He grabs his Russian phrase book and walks to greet the man. He's younger than singer expected, and he's surprised when the man bows. Singer bows in return, and then opens his phrase book. The two men start pointing to words in it and quickly singer learns that the man is a yak herder, who lives across the valley with his family. But he tells singer that soon he plans to lead the valley to study English. Singers thrilled to have already made a friend. It's part of why he loves to travel. The next couple days are spent setting up camp with singer as the lead organizer. The yak herder and his family return often and bring gifts of goat milk and flatbread. And soon, other locals start to show up to meet the American climbers too. Beth even starts to take polaroids of the children and give them out as gifts to the visitors. On their third day of setup, when the young yak herder returns, singer shares his headphones with him and watches the man's eyes light up. It's Black Sabbath man cool, right? John Dickey interrupts their fun and gestures for singer to come to the common tent. He's been cataloguing all of their gear, and he looks worried. Singer, there was a lot of stuff in the missing duffel bag. One of their bags of equipment got lost during a layover before the flight to Kyrgyzstan, and they decided not to wait to get it back because they were running so late to the helicopter. Singer looks at the piles of tools, John is laid out in the tent. Okay, so what are we missing? Two climbing harnesses, a rope, a water filter, my rock shoes, a sleeping bag, a rain jacket, most of our bivy sacks, but the one I'm really worried about is the second fuel bottle for the stoves. Singer knows it's a big problem that they're missing the kerosene for the second stove. Without it, they won't be able to split up into different climbing groups. They'll all need to use the stove to boil water and cook meals. If they can get in touch with their travel agency, maybe they can have the bags sent to them on the next bus to a neighboring village. But they'll have to find a way to call them first. Singer and John jog back over to where the herders watching his children play. John takes singers phrase book and thumbs through it. Then asks in halting Russian where the nearest telephone is. The shepherd nods and explains the nearest one is in a neighboring village. Singer asks how far and the herder thinks for a moment. Then points down the river and says 30 kilometers. Singer looks over at John. They're going to have to hike if they want to get their gear back. But singers up for an adventure. With any luck, they'll find a phone and be back in a day or so. Though out here in a massive landscape, they've never set foot in,.

Sue bird diana terachi. One fifth olympic gold medal also confirmed that this will be here last olympics but she had said that even before going to tokyo to rossio on the other hand said you in paris which is the site of the twenty twenty four olympics though it was unclear whether she was joking. Or not okay. I played the clips in the first block in a black for you from sue. Bird dawn staley. Oh gosh i'm really like emotional about the dawn staley news but this is what i wanted to bring to your attention because i unclear about this as well And here's i'm just gonna read the last paragraph of this staley's departure means there will be all new leadership for the us women's basketball program by the next major competition. The twenty twenty two world cup national team director. Carol callan who has overseen the program since ninety nineteen ninety-five announced in july that she was stepping down from that role although she will still continue as prevot president of fiba americas so now carol callan is involved with fiba and it was feeble ultimately. If i'm not mistaken that said no to neka agoo mckay. I don't know if it was to be america's so here's the article former wnba mvp neck. Ogle mckay was notified by fiba that her petition to play for her native nigeria in the upcoming tokyo olympics was denied due to quote substantial involvement for more than ten years with us team usa sources. Toll espn wednesday. The nigerian basketball federation filed an appeal too feeble on behalf of good mckay and elizabeth williams zealander dream center who was also denied because of previous involvement with team usa. The federation wrote that yoga mckay and williams were quote. Two of the top players that would have made our team one of the strongest at the games. That's the nigerian federation wrote that. So i don't know. I just thought it was interesting That piece but speaking of neck agoo mckay. Let's go to her conversation at The la sparks media availability. So we're getting media availabilities in case you can't Tell why just gave you Media availabilities from the olympics. But we're going to hear from the sparks you're also going to hear from the mystics because there's some news there and Yeah lots of news but neka ogm mckay got emotional during her media. Avail the other day when asked about just reacting to everything that's happened regarding not making the us team the petition. Not being accepted for her. To play for nigeria. So here's a little taste of that. It's been a lot of like trying to figure out how to how i want to come out of this. You know because. I think when you endure situations that are tough in life you can choose any differ roads and their stages. You know and so now i just. I'm just really grateful to be playing with my team. You know. I'm grateful to be on a team with people that care about me And i just wanna play. I just want to play basketball. And i you know they always say like situations in trials you know you you. You grow stronger In what is inside of you is kind of like exacerbated. And so i would like to say that out of that like i've always been described as resilient and i think i had to kind of tell myself that a lot to make sure that i believed it because it's been a few weeks of feeling on invaluable or unworthy and so like it's been very difficult. I'm sorry i swear i wasn't good. It's been very difficult. So i just wanna play basketball. Oh sorry i just want to play and have fun and emotional neck. Oga mckay again.

The deserves so much more than she will likely get Brand stewards the mvp of the tournament. I don't know how was it. Asia wilson and even brittany griner really had a great a fantastic gold medal game Has me eating my words. it's just a lot. It's exhausting I did not obviously go through. What neka has gone through. But i feel her emotion and so many other things that we've had to endure sushi's emotional for a lot of reasons. I'm sure but i from what i heard her saying is that she's glad to return to the court and to be with her. La sparks team and to return in a space senate away where she knows that she's valued because when you're not playing and you're in the middle of turmoil as neka was unsure. It's hard to to hang on to all of the good. And i just imagine what it must take tanakh neck. Ogle mckay off of confidence. I mean that just baffles my mind. But we're not gonna we're going to end on what we hope is a lighter. Note someone else that did not make the twenty twenty twenty twenty. One team is atlanta della. Promising future once. She can stay healthy it which she has not been able to do but we're going to hear some updates on linda de you know had a fantastic tournament. Emma amon. her numbers are up there. With asia. wilson.

"americans post" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"It's myself the captain and mark edge joining remotely from somewhere he's been galveston so i stopped asking But we were talking about well. We had a caller from andy from africa. actually who. I assume listening to us over satellite or over the internet Talking about these frequency based weapons and something called havana syndrome. Now mark you asked During that conversation what were the symptoms th. They appear to be vague. I only found one article that mentions them quick. Search that i did but symptoms include dizziness headaches and loss of hearing and maybe the result of directed energy attacks. So you're spot on with the vagary of some of this but this article mentions some two hundred americans. This is from the daily mail dot co dot uk by the way some two hundred americans posted around the world including a baby. I don't know how baby reports this. But i have reported symptoms of havana syndrome. The mysterious condition was first reported in fall of two thousand sixteen when a staffer at the. Us embassy in cuba suffered headaches hearing loss memory issues and other symptoms so mark. Maybe when you head. Cova d'you are also a victim of havana syndrome. Have you been near cuba. Well you don't have to be in cuba apparently Anybody can just buy this stuff off the internet and it's being employed by governments against us diplomats around the world. Now it's strange that it's diplomats. I mean it almost sounds like mass hysteria. Hey there's people out there doing this stuff and the symptoms. They reported here with nausea headaches. Dizziness these are all things that are very easy to sort of Cause people to believe that it's happening to them. I think i might be nauseous. Yes i know especially if you work for the us government and there's all kinds of benefits to being ill. I hear that people who feel dashes while working for diplomatic agencies in foreign countries get paid more. And i'd like to get paid more. And i worked for a diplomatic agency. Perhaps salt i think again. I don't know anything. I'm just one should start with the stance of skepticism. And that's kind of where i'm starting on this is. I don't know what's going on. This all looks very strange to me. I think either. I misheard or you misspoke. I think you said an also made up a new word. You said diplomatic now. Diplomatic immunity right isn't that isn't that closer to the truth. When it comes to referring to these diplomats magic this report says whereas the suspect and no that's not it talks about how many cases in unworthy from and where but the suspected directed energy attacks have baffled. Us investigators who are working to determine who and what is causing them since they first began in cuba five years ago so apparently the united states government is thinking trail folks. It's you should have an answer in a century. Yes thank you for summarizing that so it's ridiculous not the i don't know about the disease. Ridiculous is putting an egg agency that has been shown as to be as incompetent as it as the united states. Government has at thing after thing after thing you know if you compared to other governments. It's very competent. If you compare it to any other organizational model it's a mess. No it is. It is and we can move on from this..
"americans post" Discussed on The Munk Debates
"If you embark upon a foolhardy war than terminating the war actually signals to others. Good sense wisdom my judgment. Is that the afghanistan war fool foolhardy war in that therefore terminating the war the signal doesn't hurt our credibility signals that we finally wised up. Now let me admit that to my mind this. This discussion happens in this. Larger context larger context related to the central theme of us policy. Since the end of the cold war. I believe it since the end of the cold war. Us policy's become excessively militarized in afghan failed afghanistan. War is one example of where this militarization of us policy has misled us in a new world. New geopolitically new in the sense of other concerns rising to the four. It seems to me to be very useful to do what we can do. To begin to walk away from back away from the successive militarization and to my mind terminating. Us involvement in the afghanistan war offers one small step toward that larger purpose interesting analysis. So elliott what's your perspective on that. I mean people would say look. We are in a new geopolitical. Our reality it needs to be acknowledged and As andrew said you know this militarization of america's engagement with the world is precisely at the root of the failure of the policy in afghanistan iraq. It's at the danger of being at the root of america's next Military failure possibly taiwan. What's your view. I don't disagree with andrew that Us policy post the second world war has become excessively militarized. You know where. I think there might be a little bit of daylight between us. Is idea that you know. Afghanistan has been foolhardy war. I let me just explain. I would say that there were. There have been a number of afghan wars. The first is the war fought immediately. After the september eleventh attacks which there's there is much to be desired and the prosecution and the hunt for bin laden. But i would not say that was a foolhardy conflict. I remember with those attacks for life. I'm your andrew does as well. I think you know. The nation was at that point. Going to war the scope of that war and allowing it to creep into all sorts of facets in a nation building project i think is what was foolhardy. I don't think you know a response. Ghanistan to the september eleventh attacks was full hardy but i fully agree that our conception of war as americans post the second world war has left a lot to be desired. The second world war. I think is very much still are american story. We expect our wars to kind of adhere to that narrative where there is a beginning. There's a middle. There's an end and we're the good guys and everyone comes home and i would offer one observation. I remember when i was in high school. I read the iliad. The copies of the ilia that they handed out to my to my class had a single image on the cover. It said in red lettering iliad and there was a photograph of a bunch of us servicemembers landing on omaha beach. And i think we as americans need to kind of update our national elliott is. We imagine wars going forward for instance in a place like taiwan as we move closing statements. I want you to respond to enter to this idea that you know. We're we're in a twilight period. And it's going to be a period of the necessity for america's continuing engagement In the world including using military power and force Maybe that engagements going to have new features is going to be a little bit more. Judicious more calibrated as elliot is suggesting in terms of a way to extend the afghanistan mission. And my right to characterize your view andrews one that you know it really is time to focus on america at home and you oppose any foreign intervention or like. Where do you draw the lines. I'm kind of interested in your thinking here in that in that process. If you're saying andrew are you an isolationist. The answer is no matter of fact i think isolationism is a fiction. I believe absolutely imperative for the united states to be actively comprehensively engaged in the world. We can't solve our problems unless we are comprehensively. Engaged when you think of things like a the climate crisis or or cybercrime. We have to be engaged. I do believe however that the emphasis on military power as a preferred instrument for engagement particularly since the end of the cold war has been profoundly misguided. And therefore we need to rethink determine our engagement and rethink our priorities. Where frankly afghanistan doesn't rent rank very high. Now elliott said something that was genuinely profound when he he referenced. World war two and the overhang of of world war two down to the present moment as sort of a narrative source or reference. Point to which we'd reflexively return. I think he's exactly right. In some respects in our collective consciousness we still imagine to franklin roosevelt and winston churchill standing arm-in-arm fighting the good fight against the third reich on this battle depends the survival of christians realize it knows he will have to break out in the island.

"They were designed to overturn the supreme court's nineteen eighty decision in the mobile case. Which said that you had to prove discriminatory intent in order to establish the section to violation instead. Congress wanted to say that laws that had a discriminatory impact could violate section two. They borrowed that language from a case called white versus register that language about not being equally open to other members of the electorate to participate but it's hotly contested by what the words mean and whether they suggested any practices that have discriminatory impact can be challenged or something short of that. So i've read the language and a bit of the background. Please tell us recap on. What was the background. And what was congress. Try to achieve when the past those words right so i think we want to start with nine hundred sixty five voting rights act. That's when the act. I passed and one of the major provisions of the act was what's come to be known as pre clearance section five of the act and i think it's important to understand this backdrop before go forward to talking about where we are today so Among the most important provision. Was this idea that if a jurisdiction had a of racial discrimination voting it couldn't make a change to its voting rules without getting federal approval from either a three judge court in washington. Dc the department of justice in order to get approval the jurisdiction will have to show that the change in law that they wanted to make wouldn't make protected minority voters worse off. This is sometimes referred to as the retrogression principal and the reason that congress had put that in the nineteen sixty five voting rights. Act is That the justice would go down in the southern states for engage in racially discriminatory voting practices like poll taxes literacy tests or or whatever they'd win their case and then the You get the jurisdiction. Just enacting new restriction after the oj. Left and so this idea was we could prevent backsliding by putting the onus on these jurisdictions to make their get approval before they make any of their changes and so that helped it was prevented backsliding. But it didn't help enough. And so for example if jurisdiction had a rule that was discriminatory spin on the books. For a long time. It wouldn't be making a change and so wouldn't be subject to clearance. So let's talk about city of mobile versus bolden in new orleans louisiana They were electing representatives for of city and the representatives some of them were elected at large. So everyone in the city. Gotcha vote and imagine a city that is sixty percent white and forty percent african american and all the whites for one set of candidates. All the african americans prefer another set of candidates in that kind of system. If there's racially polarized voting were whites for one set of candidates african-american for others and you vote large. Everyone gets to vote than whites. Control the entire city council and so does it violate section. Two of the voting rights. Act a different part of the voting rights act to not require the creation of district so minardi voters can have a chance to elect representatives of their choice and some supreme court decisions before the nineteen eighty city of mobile versus both in case including white versus register. Which you mentioned said. Yeah it could be a violation if you look at a bunch of different factors company to tally the circumstances it could be discriminatory but in city of mobile versus bowls. The court said we read section to the voting rights. Act has not reaching this question that it only would make At large voting illegal if a jurisdiction adopted with the intent of discriminate against minority voters and in nineteen eighty two in responsive mobile versus bolden congress in dialogue with the supreme court said. No you've got section to wrong. It's enough to prove a discriminatory effect not just discriminatory intent right and so with thornburgh versus jingles. In interpreting the revised section two of the voting rights act said in nineteen eighty. Six was if you could meet certain requirements which we don't have to get into here then you could force jurisdiction to draw districts in which minority voters would have a chance to elect representatives of their choice and this was caused a dramatic change in representation. We we now. Have many more african american preferred candidates for state local and federal office. And so it was remarkably successful in achieving that and so section to said in its revised form nineteen two. It's enough to prove results or troy effect. And so what was an issue in berkovitch as we get up to there is what does it mean to have. A discriminatory effect in the context of not not vote dilution case case but vote denial case and so the question for example. Suppose that african american voters use a particular method of voting more commonly van another method. So let's talk about the in some places. African american voters do sunday drives to get people to vote right after church soles to the polls. And let's say that a jurisdiction knowing that african american voters voted high numbers on sundays and they tend to vote for democrats. Let's say that a republican legislature passes a law that says no more sunday voting. The question would be. Is that a violation of section two. And my answer before. Berkovitch was shortly. Yes and my answer after pitches almost certainly know your richest went through a lot of helpful. History like you to review the same history and we heard rick tell us that in the white versus register case which was nineteen seventy-three. The court said that vote dilution plaintiffs had to show that the political processes leading to nomination and election were not equally open to participation by the group in question dash that its members had less opportunity than did other residents in the district to participate in the political process and to elect legislators of their choice. We heard excited in the mobile case. The court said you had to prove discriminatory intent and we heard him say that congress wanted to reverse that requirement in section two of the amended voting rights act and resurrected the white versus registered test. Does that mean that all practices that had discriminatory effects could be challenged or did congress in the eighty. Two amendments intend to allow something less than that. The short answer is no. And that's why. I'll just take up the part where i wanna clarify or correct Depending how you see something that rick said and that's that the The eventual legislation that congress passed the section to amendment did not simply say discriminatory effect or is now we might say more often. Disparate impact. that's not what it said. I would that that that kind of Understanding met with stiff resistance In the senate and there was compromised language to require consideration of the tally. the circumstances. and that You know the equally open language that that you just read in which Justice alito started his majority opinion in the brnovich case With and that requires a consideration. As i said of the totality of the circumstances. It's not you know i. I don't know whether an anti soles to the polls sunday voting. That's a thinly veiled to to stop african-american post church vote goers. I don't know whether that would survive or not but the the idea is You look at whether you know the factors. I don't know whether you want to jeff get into a a lido's actual majority opinion here but the point is that minute are not statistically significant disparities Don't don't make a particular rule suspect you have to look at How the state Sets out rules altogether There's not a clear time place or manner You know guideline here but it's not merely importing the section five anti retrogression test or the the redistricting vote dilution tests under section. Two here. it's much more of a you know you don't have to prove intent But you do have to have something more than Some you know meer minor a disparate impact altogether. And that's that's you know goes to the difference between the analysis of the majority and the and the descent burn of each. Thank you for that rick. Let's just stay with what congress intended and debated in nineteen eighty two. There's language forswearing any.

"Are many reasons that i love doing the show. I one of the reasons is because we come from very different places and it's rare and true gift when we become good friends with somebody who really is lived a different life different story and i think about this because when we conceived of this episode we really were thinking about family and i realized my conception of family is very simplistic and very basic and intuitive. It's kind of the generic american post world war two version of family. Its nuclear family. Mom dad brothers. Maybe this crazy cousins. But in fact as we've gotten to know one another on the air and off i realize that the word family is much more complicated for you and for many of our listeners. It's deeply complicated. And i always marvel at our difference like i'll never get over for example. You have two parents who stayed married to each other. Yes i know. Your mom died a couple years ago but you know she spent. How many years was she married to your dad fifty three fifty three years. Okay just having a father as a marvel me. My father hasn't been in my life since i was about six. And before that he was a destructive force. I had a wonderful mother but she died when she was forty five. So i have not had my mother and my life and and even my family beyond that there's like an asterix beside each one my siblings i loved them and they loved me but but we have a distant relationship. We don't have the normal sibling relationship relationship. My kids don't know really any family beyond the family. My husband and i have created right and for so many of the letters that we see. It's not just complicated emotionally. And psychologically it's even legally complicated where the lines of whose mom and whose dad and who's the custodian of the child or children were.

"Welcome to Nearly Numinous. Today we're going to be talking about a show called The 100 and some of the themes of spirituality and religion we see in the show. Obviously, some of the things we'll be discussing today will make course if you see in this show, but we're hoping those who haven't seen the hundred will still get something out of our discussion today. And also needless to say if there's going to be some spoilers. So today we're only going to be focusing on season one, but we're also going to be splitting season one into two episodes, just so we don't shove a lot of information in your face at one time. So first, we're just going to give you a little bit of an introduction about the show and give you our thoughts on it and we're going to talk about things of apocalypticism. Next time we're going to talk about a little bit of eco spirituality just a dash, just a little dash a little sprinkle, a little sprinkle. A little Salt Bae. And we split that part up into three sections. Each focusing on a different community in the show to make it simpler for our listeners. And within each section, we'll look at the different ways religion and spirituality manifest in the show's communities. All right, to give some listeners like a little pre flight warning, we wrote the script for this in February and March. It is now June. We had we had a couple of failed recording sessions because Internet hates us. And then I moved across the country and forgot everything that happened pre living across the country. Do you guys do that ever? I feel like there's little cuts in your life where when you make that big transition, everything that happened prior, you're like, oh, right. I have all these other responsibilities. My life didn't just stop there. So anyway, I get what you mean, but it's never happened to me. That's kind of concerning. Well, I've moved a lot in my life. That's true. Pick up dust off, forget about everything in the past. You guys are lucky you still made the cut. Oh, thanks. Thanks so much. No, I'm kidding. But no, that's the listeners pre flight warning. We're going to briefly yeah, briefly warning. It makes sense. But we might fumble our way through a few points. But hopefully it's still a good conversation. Okay, so what is the hundred, which I said it the hundred because Jaclyn told me if I said the 100 she would beat me up? Oh, yes. It's on the pacifist. No, I'm definitely gonna mess up on the name. I've always in my head called it the 100, so okay, the hundred. Yeah, me too. Have to practice that. If you don't know, it's styled with the numbers. So you could upon first view you could say it either the hundred or the 100. But I think officially it's called the hundred. What weird semantics anyway. So what is the hundred or the 100 whatever you would refer to it as? So the hundred is an American post apocalyptic science fiction drama that first aired on The CW in 2014. Side tangent, The CW puts out the best show's hands down. They're best worst shows. Yeah, yeah, sorry. Yeah, I only watch bad TV. So I only understand bad television shows. And The CW puts out the best of them. So I told you. As the show starts, we learned that a nuclear apocalypse made the earth supposedly inhospitable. Humans have lived in space for 97 years building their own culture, families, laws, and sense of spirituality. However, the purpose of the scientists on the ark is to determine when and if the earth will become hospitable again and to ultimately return the arc citizens to the ground. Our main character is Clark Griffin, who has been sent to jail or as they call it in the show, lock up.

"Killed pepple available on. Cbc listen and wherever you get your podcasts post slavery you rate that the push to disarm black people has also been relentless and that that the concern around access to guns for african americans who were free was also a huge problem. Tell me about about what happened. Post slavery and and how guns were kept out of the hands of black americans post labor. You had The thing called the black coats. The black codes were instituted. By what i call these neo confederate governments and these were the members of the confederacy the groups that had attacked the united states in the in launched the civil war. An president andrew. Johnson gave them amnesty with that. They did a got control over their governments again. And pass these black codes and these black codes Just said one was about the control of black labor but it also said that it was about disarmament black people could not have gone gods and black people had the guns from the war and so you had the rise of these paramilitary groups the end these these militia groups and these domestic terrorist groups that went out working in league with these governments to disarm black people. It was a slaughter historian annette. Gordon reed causal slow motion genocide. What was happening in the south to black people and you had the black troops from the union as of occupied force trying to get in between these paramilitary groups in the free people. What would it have meant for more african americans to be able to get guns. I mean part of it is self defense as opposed but but beyond that what would it have meant if they were able to have access to the same rights when it came to the second amendment as white americans it would have meant and i think the best way to understand this is to go back to the eighteen. Fifty seven dread scott decision by the supreme court in that decision was about whether a slave person could become free by living on free soil by living in a non slave state and chief justice. Roger teini wrote in that decision. That black people have never been citizens. They worked citizens at the founding. They weren't citizens because they couldn't get passports. They weren't citizens because they couldn't carry the mail and they weren't sick. He said if they were citizens they would be able to move from state to state freely and they wouldn't be able to carry guns wherever they wit. The black man has no rights that a white man is bound to be stacked. That's how the supreme court was able to justify keeping guns out of the hands of of black americans despite the fact that the second amendment is in the constitution. Exactly exactly and you had another ruling in georgia that a a gun control law for white men was not Was unconstitutional because violated white. Men's second amendment rights but a similar law that banned free blacks from having access to guns was constitutional and so the sense of gun ownership as embodied in in citizenship was there and it was that systematic denial of that That was coursing through the jurisprudence. At the time. When i take it in nineteen sixty seven huey. Newton was the co founder of the black panther party for self defense here. He is speaking after a number of heavily armed. Black panthers entered the california state assembly. The people in this car and the people in the legislature has not been acting like human beings they put trumped up charges of conspiracy and felonies on everyone who went into exercise a constitutional right and said they had no right to bear arms and a public place..

They shopped and they package it and now they have Christmas and its dignity to those families who don't have the means to do it, Which is a nice thing to do. And you it's not only for your employees, you put a shout out to the public to stop by your facility to drop off clothes and gifts and toys.

A mediation and fire restoration. You're dyeing your dance. Well, why is it important for business owners to know this and homeowners? Yeah, you got it is it is important. And we're having such fun today. But I want to talk about some of the tough stuff. Um, JC restoration were your local restoration provider. We are a big experience company and the cornerstone of our business is fire restoration. I hope that you listeners never experienced a structure fire, whether it be a business or even worse yet your home, But this is exactly what we do. It's what we see day in and day out. And if you or anybody, you know, ever experiences a fire. You need to know who to call. I would like you to save JC restoration the information because that is what we're here for you to do. Um, I want to give you kind of a quick breakdown. Overview of what fire restoration Looks like. So first of all, you know, obviously a fire curse. You need to get out of that house safely. Mostly injuries I see are from people that attempt to put the fire out themselves. You could get, you know, grease fires and different things. It's About getting your family out. Get your pets out. Get the fire department engaged. Also, if you're just driving down the street and noticed something that looks weird, like a smoke coming from somebody's roof. We had that happen. Yeah, Remember the retired fire firefighter. Called into the show and he was driving by one of his neighbors, homes and there were sparks coming out. It, uh, Amber's. Is that what they call members? Yeah, coming out of the fireplace. Um, the chimney and he knocked on the door and said, Get out and called his buddies at the fire department. Oh, my God. Oh, yeah happens all the time. We just don't talk about on the radio going. Oh, yeah, You bet. It's a lot of times it's neighbors. It's pastor buyers that will alert the fire department because if you have a chimney fire or an attic fire, you could be in your house and have no idea what's happening. That's why Chimney fires are so bad because they burned in a hidden cavity. You don't you don't know what's occurring. The first person maybe recognize that it's on fire could be Next door neighbor, somebody driving down the street, so I'm a big fan of the fire department's I see what they do on a daily basis, and they rush out as he know they save lives. First property second. I mean, when you put out a fire, you're putting out a lot of what you're using water you're doing these techniques, you creating holes, breaking windows. So these are techniques these things for the fire. But the sooner the fire department's engaged, the better for everybody. The better chance that nobody's injured badly and the better chance the house has put out before it's totally gone. Um, what else do they get done with it? Listen, very department. The firefighters that run in there. We're not knocking on the door ringing the bell. Okay, They're getting in the house to put the fire out. Save you Save your family. Save your pets. Okay? And the bringing and holds is they're bringing in access. It's not like to be. Oh, Mr Miss McGillicuddy, Please leave the house to flying in there Doing what? They need to do T o to try to stop the fire and things get damaged, not on purpose. It's just doing their jobs. Oh, yeah, well, I'm not knocking the fire part once, However, they're always doing their jobs. But you guys fires are so bad and it's not because apart apart, put the water on it. If you could imagine what it's like, and I'm with my customers when we enter the home for the first time after the fire Every smell. You will never forget it. It is a pungent order. Rhys overtaking smell of smoke and order everything in your house, which yesterday at great walls and white walls and granite countertops. Everything is black. Everything is covered Black. It is damp. It's stinky. It is. It's terrible. It's terrible to go through. It's terrible to go through and then, um And then you know what? What happens next? So the fire's put out? Okay, Now you transit transitioning into getting the insurance claim Filed. There's processes that have to happen now. You can't just immediately rebuild your house. You've got to get thinking the insurance company involved. They're going to do what's called a cause and origin investigation. Everybody wants to know. How did the fire occurred? Was it a brand new G washing machine? Was it a cigarette butt? You know what doesn't necessarily matter so much, but it needs to be known. Why did this fire Kurt arson? Well, then you go into a criminal investigation, and that's that's going to create a delay there, Because now it's all hands off while the while the investigation is going on, So these air, these are all things that also kind of, frankly slow down the process. Fire restoration is littered with these terrible delays, things that stopped the production of the restoration service, the first one being cause and origin or criminal investigation. Meanwhile, your house is sitting there deteriorating. It's got this ascetic smoke. It's got water damage, not to humidity. Now it's got mold damage. So you need somebody to corner understands the delays that are going to be presented to you so that we can proactively be prepared for him. We need to be prepared for the cause and origin investigation and talk to the insurance carriers say which rooms can we work in now we want to get the personal property out. You have got to get the personal property out sooner than later, because a week later in the summer time, the couch that could have been cleaned is now covered in mold and it Zach lately lost. So cause and origin is going on first, any news? You need to get all the furniture of the house. Second thing you need to do is you need to do the demolition of the structure and clean all the smoke. You can't stop until you get it all. So you need to know smoke inside the ceiling cavities in the wall cavities And as you progress through this very scientific process, getting house clean, deodorize and smoke free Now you need to transition into two things settling the.

And we're for sure, not arrogant in any way because we've got so much work to do, But You know, I do think that now we are in a place that you know, our guys expect to win. They're proud of what we've done. And I just, you know, you talk about recruiting. I just in the recruits were starting to get in the conversation. We're in Which is what I've always said you A B in Birmingham should be in those conversations. And, you know, I think the new stadium which you know nobody's really even seen it yet. I think that's gonna be a game changer for us at recruiting and You know, not think that the Knicks down front if we want to be considered. You know a team that's got a chance to be in the top 25 minutes or a top 25 time all the time, but just to have a chance to be there on being every single game. That's that's what we want. Mm. I cannot wait to see that stadium in person. I have to come back down to Birmingham to visit cause I'm everybody's just tow when it was just a pile of dirt. And I want to see a game there for sure. That you this question before Coach I want to wrap up with this. Um, if you wanted to go to go coach somewhere else, maybe take a different challenge in a power five. Atmosphere. Why do you stay with you? A B? Why do you stay in Birmingham? You know, I think there's just something about something being yours and you know I'm from this state. So you know my family's here and you know, it's really it's it's always It's always nice to be thought of. And because that means you're doing your job and that's you know, that's gonna happen when you do your job, but You know, this is really special to me because you know, especially with the shutdown and bringing it back and the stadium and there's all these goals I had, and we had for for everything. So just to get to kind of be part of that. I almost felt like it was His unfinished business without it, But now we're you know, we are starting to get close. But, you know, hopefully I could stay around and read some of the rewards. MM. Coach Bill Clark coming off a season unlike any other U A B football, But it culminates with another conference USA Championship and soon a brand new, shiny stadium. It's always great to catch up with you, Coach. Thank you so much for a couple of minutes and congratulations. Thank you. I appreciate you having me on It is not overstating it to say that Bill Clark. View. A B is one of my favorite people in the entire football realm, College or pro, and we've been friends buddies since he had me on campus back when they were shut down. It's a story that's crazy that you almost wouldn't believe it's the stuff that movie scripts are made of, because there's this Huge challenge for a group of people and he could have gone somewhere else to coach. But he say there and he's AH, coach that has turned a lot of heads. He could go somewhere else. He could take a different job. He could gather the mid major, so to speak, but he's so committed and so loyal and not just that the young men That he recruits they model that they're loyal. They're committed, and he's got guys that stuck with him even when their program was shut down. I've wanted to talk to him now for over a month, and this was the right opportunity. So a special outside the box Super Bowl interview, but certainly one from the world of football that you can kind of project on too many other college programs as well as NFL franchises and everything. They've gone through the stress and the adversity. But this is his quote. You don't have a testimony without a test. That's so timely and appropriate for where we are right now. As Americans Post Bill Clark, Ike Taylor to.
"americans post" Discussed on WGN Radio
"I meant to get to this earlier with the and I didn't Apple's iPhone 12. Do you have any news on how well that did? Yeah. So I've been, you know, watching a lot of quarterly earnings reports come out as I mentioned earlier in the week, and Apple did very, very well mostly due to the iPhone 12 sales. You know, this is the word that gets thrown around a lot. When we talk about Apple, in particular is super cycle and what that essentially means is the day of phone comes out. Not everyone is going to buy that. But people are going to start upgrading their way towards that phone so each new iPhone released kind of trigger. Is this upward work waterfall of kind of trading up to get better and better phones that people do. And so we've We've seen this with every big iPhone release, And this seems to have triggered the same, so they beat Wall Street estimates. Wall Street analysts were predicting about 103 billion in quarterly revenue. They came in over 111 billion. I mean, once you get into the billions, it's kind of even hard to fathom that number, but But nonetheless, they beat the Wall Street estimates by by quite a lot. The posted earnings per share were up 35% from the same period the prior year. So that's 17% growth year over year to 65.6 billion, again, beating analyst ex analyst estimates on all all due to that iPhone 12 because there were so many you know new things and pieces of innovation. In that phone. There were a lot different than that the last two that were released while props to them for After the past 12 months being able to put out such a good product and turn such a good profit. Yeah, Truly. I mean, I think what we'll We'll kind of take our good news where we get it these days because there's been so many sectors that have just been impacted so badly, you know, particularly in hospitality and retail, but when we're looking at products like this, I mean Some refer to the iPhone is one of the best selling tech products of all times. If you think about the iPhone story, it changed the way we we use phones forever, so interesting to see where they continue tol do with that and where they continue to go with it Midst of a pandemic, and nobody seemed to have any money or confidence that the money would be there if they did, and $700 phone was flying off the shelves, You know? Yeah, that's right. And I think we saw a lot of that. So you know, the super cycle I was referring to. Ah, lot of that was helped by the carrier. So the A, T and T and Sprint and Verizon, allowing people to kind of pay that out. So you don't have to fork over the 700 bucks all at once. You kind of pay it out per month. And it's sort of like a lease to own kind of kind of Ah, arrangement that helped a lot of people step into a phone and upgrade their phone when they otherwise couldn't afford it. McDonald's did not have a great quarter, huh? Yeah, So you know, we this is there's kind of two numbers We have to look at. When we look at McDonald's. There's the global overall. And then there's the US numbers and the U. S numbers. This the same store sales are up 5.5%. They've done a lot of promotions. There's been some marketing campaigns have done a lot of innovations in U. S stores that helped them whether the pandemic But globally the story is a little bit different because of different countries have different kind of restrictions. People were going out in some places not going out in others things like that. But overall, we have seen this. You know this big lift for the U. S. For the U. S market, which has helped the overall number two not be quite as much of a hit as it would have otherwise been. You know, Of course, when we when we talk about McDonald's. The kind of what's happening in the background is the relationship with franchisees. That's kind of been this ongoing thing because McDonald's scaled back their menu a lot, and a lot of franchisees said Hey, you know what, Actually, I kind of love this. It's easier to do. There's less things on the menu for Mito have to have ready and fresh at all times. So this makes my profitability a lot better. When things started to be added back to the menu. There was a lot of pushback. So there's been some kind of ongoing tension with franchisees and And who's in charge of keeping the restaurant safe and things like that. But despite all that U s stores did perform well and and we're up. American Airlines. Southwest Airlines catches up on the airline business. Yeah, you know, another set of quarterly earnings reports. I was watching really carefully. Southwest had a had a call with investors earlier today to kind of talk through it because Southwest posted its first annual loss since 1972. I mean, when you think about that that's such a huge amount of time that Southwest has been profitable on the annual basis, and it just wasn't the case. Not surprising at all. We saw how badly airlines were impacted by the pandemic. American also reported a record quarterly loss. And really both of them really felt like there's still some rough times ahead. There's that scene optimism, but the period in the middle is kind of where they're all looking. So American posted a net loss of 2.2 billion in the fourth quarter. So that's revenue down about 64% s. That's a little over four billion compared with about 11 billion the year prior. When we look to Southwest again that that first loss in 1972 that this number that they shared really stuck out to me their average cash burn of what they expect just to keep the train on the tracks and keep running is $17 million a day in the first quarter, and they're saying that's about, you know, lesson to demand And this is a time January in February, when there's Not a lot of travel summer is usually the peak season less travel in January and February after the holiday time, So combining those two things you know they're saying you were still going to be burning through about 17 million bucks a day in cash reserves just to get through, so I'll be very interested to see that 2nd and 3rd quarter reports from the airlines. To really paint this full picture of you know how how their rebound is going cause I think that's really the next step is. Will people start booking tickets for summer travel? Now that we're rolling out the vaccine, both airlines expressed our leadership brother expressed some frustration that the vaccine isn't going faster. You know, we've talked about the kind of bottlenecks that they've hit. We've all you know, seen the reporting around that For various reasons. But really, the airlines are hinging are hedging a lot of their you know, summer bets on that saying, Hey, the faster we get these people vaccinated, the faster they're going to be wanting to travel, particularly looking at business travel, which was such a big driver but also international travel, especially American had very, very big international routes, some that they did several times a day. There were huge cash drivers for them. So they're really hoping that vaccine campaigns can make can start to open up some international borders and get those big revenue drivers back. But we're probably not going to see that until QUE Tu r Q three Don't know. Valentine's Day is a big driver in the economy the way Halloween is and Christmases, But I see the craft has got something up their sleeve, right. Oh, boy, John, I don't know about this one. We talked if you remember right Before Halloween, there was a pumpkin, mac and cheese and we weren't real sure about how that was going to go. I'm not real sure about this one. This is a pink candy flavored. Mac and cheese for Valentine's Day. It is pink. It is supposed to taste like candy. I cannot imagine what that would taste like. But this is you know, a social media effort there, hoping people will instagram this because it's this bright pink Mac and cheese and maybe talk about What it tastes like unclear on that. But craft has been doing a lot of creative things. They made a ketchup red pandemic puzzle. They had a campaign that asked people to draw catch up very recently that had tons of people instagramming and tweeting pictures of ketchup bottles that they had drawn. So they're being very creative to try toe empower people to kind of do some of their, you know, brand evangelism for them and talk about the brand again. Not real Sure. Pink candy Mac and cheese would taste But I'm willing. I'm willing to try anything once. I suppose you're not sure how we taste. I'm worried how it even looks that that just doesn't sound appealing to be on any front butt. I don't wanna blow out anybody's candle, man. If it's working for you thumbs up. Just don't don't invite me to the table. Maybe ghost follows food and Mac and cheese in the airlines, among other things. Thank you, Amy. Thanks so much. John.
