"Diana was there at one point, right? That's been good since then. What does he do? All he takes them to conference championship game after conference championship game. And then takes him to a Super Bowl. And if it's not for Jacoby Jones, showing his natural ass that day, they might have won the Super Bowl that day. Things don't go there well, things go kind of south with Colin Kaepernick, leaves there. He's gonna go home. He's gonna go back to Ann Arbor. He's gonna go back and put on his bullshit backward glasses. He's gonna go back to the classic uniforms. The khakis with the polo tuck that he's out there throwing passes. He's sleeping on the floor. That recruits house to get a kicker. Still weird. Still weird. He drinks milk with his steak. I've had dairy milk in a decade. He drinks milk with a steak. And all he does is turn Michigan back into a national power, never going off, never getting upset, never being above himself, never calling out other people. Never calling out his players. He just stays cool. He stays calm and he stays collected and rightfully so he wasn't beaten right people and they wanted him fired. What did he do? He gave some of his salary to people who couldn't get a paycheck. And he said, just stick with me, we'll be fine. And today and just like last year, ladies and gentlemen, he's handed Ohio State that asked whooping of their life back to back years, 42 points one year, 45 points to next year. Mister Jim Harbaugh leading his team to the conference championship game again into the college football playoff again this week, sir. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

"Gift to folks. I'm always a bit concerned about ordering food online because I'm never sure, is it going to be fresh? Is it going to be edible, that type of thing? How do you deal with those types of issues? Well, we're absolutely curating and kind of hand picking these gifts. So there are people and businesses that have a long experience of shipping and getting these gifts to you know, making sure they're fresh, making sure they're well produced. It includes gifts from businesses like zingerman's and chair republic and other folks like that that have been doing this kind of shipping for a long time, but these are unique hand picked gifts that we would recommend and certainly range the gamut from chocolates and Reuben sandwich making kits and all across the board in terms of sweets or savories and drinks as well. Well, you mentioned a couple of really well-known Michigan brands and I would certainly look to them as good providers of gift items. Can you give us some other examples of what we can expect when we go to your website? Yeah, absolutely. As I mentioned, the gifts really range dramatically, which is amazing because you'll certainly find something for any person that you're gifting to, whether they be a person in your family, a friend or a coworker, but we've got great products from our tees and Ann Arbor, bliss Gourmet, and Grand Rapids. Detroit jerky and Livonia, food for thought and Traverse City, iron fish and thompsonville. Aside the shop in mackinac island, riba's. So all across the state, really. We represent all food businesses that are from Detroit up to the western UP. And you'll find a wide variety of those businesses in that gift guide. You can search by region too. So if you, if you really have a tie to a specific region of the state and you want a gift kind of from that region, you can filter the gifts by that region. You can even filter the gifts by ownership type two. So if you want to support bipoc owned businesses or women owned businesses, you can use that filter to filter things down into that category. What a great idea. Besides food items, what other type of items did you say we can look for? Certainly experiential items. So if there's, you know, you want to do a cookie tasting or a something like a tour of the village at grand traverse commons and all of their flavors of the village. Things like that

The Vilification of Successful Black Men With Dr. Ben Carson

"Of speaking with justice clarence Thomas at some point earlier this year and it's just an amazing thing to hear how he bought in to the angry black man ideology until he woke up to the truth and we just see the astonishing accomplishments that he has made just a hero and yet he like you is mostly vilified in the mainstream media and by the Democratic Party as somehow getting it wrong. I mean, it's just fascinating to me that you could be one of the greatest surgeons in the world. You could be in the cabinet of the president of the United States. You could be a Supreme Court Justice. It's just amazing that the two of you, for example, who have been such a so dramatically successful, would be vilified. What do you think is behind that? Who is behind that? Well, you know, I grew up in Detroit, a very liberal place. And Boston a very liberal place. Went to New Haven, a very little place, and then Ann Arbor, very liberal place, and in Baltimore, very little place. So I was a very liberal individual. Until I did something that the liberal has never supposed to do. I listened to a conservative, I listened to Ronald Reagan. And I said, this guy sounds just like my mother. He's saying exactly the same stuff the same philosophy. And I started really examining my belief system. I was noticing that so many of the patients that I was seeing at each Baltimore. Were dependent on the government. They were perfectly able bodied people. I said, this is wrong. And there is a system that is absolutely deleterious to the aspirations of these people. And that's really when I started making a significant change. Once the media for whom I was a darling discovered that I had made that change and now I was a conservative has evil. He's an evil person. He's a terrible, terrible person. Because they don't want the narrative of self reliance out there.

"Said they are back on eggs at me in a few years. And to what? Into the marching band. Are you excited? I'm guessing I'm really excited. After that, Henry asks his mom if he could double up on piano lessons and started taking drums too. Like the card said, practice art and I will practice hard. So you can get there someday. Yes. I just have a really good feeling that I want to be in the marching band. If all goes as planned, Henry will join the band in the fall of 2029. But we thought in the school agreed, that's an awfully long time to wait for a dream to come true. So we set up a little surprise. Right behind this door. No way. Henry, this is your Michigan marching band. No way. Oh. We're so excited to have you here with us, Henry. I can't believe I'm here. The Michigan marching band rode out a single note and just look at the symphony that followed. You got it. A masterpiece of kindness and inspiration that struck a major chord in this young man's life. And continues to resonate. To this very day, last weekend, the band invited him back, Henry, who's now 11, got to lead the march to Michigan stadium. And when the time came for his favorite song, at his favorite venue, Henry Boyer was rot and center. Yeah, that even made me want to join the band even more. But no matter where his music career takes him. Hopefully, Henry will continue to follow the lead set by this marching band. And play it forward. Steve Hartman, on the road. You guys have the best music ever. In Ann Arbor, Michigan. I can't wait to join. Oh yeah. It'll come soon. Sweet story.

"But at The Washington Post they have an opinion writer micheline Maynard who says Jessica used to it What's your problem For more than a century she says business experts have been trying to dial up the United States efficiency ever since Frederick Taylor published the principles of scientific management in 1911 companies have focused on doing things more quickly and raising consumers expectations as a result actually it's not since he wrote the book It's called the industrial revolution But Taylor's ideas didn't take into account the havoc a pandemic might do to supply chains What are you talking about There was a mass of deadly flu in 1917 The history of that is what is she talking about And how that would blunt what a few months ago seemed like a looming resumption of modern daily life's zippy pace Of course the country Americans expectations of speedy service and easy access to consumer products have been crushed like a styrofoam container in a trash compactor Wow what a turn of the phrase Time for some new more realistic expectations Fast food is less fast a huge flotilla container ships is stuck off shore in California waiting to unload Shoves normally stock with Halloween candy this time of year empty And I saw the other day at a target here in Ann Arbor Michigan The issues become so troublesome with alarming economic and political ramifications The White House is stepping in urging unions port operators and big consumer groups companies To work around the clock to unclog supply

"University of Michigan Ross school of business professor who joins us from Ann Arbor Good morning Hello David Why would a person buy a Bitcoin fund traded in Chicago as opposed to just buying a Bitcoin if you want to speculate if it's going up or down It seems a little crazy because you can buy bitcoins directly And you're not buying in this fund You're not buying bitcoins In fact you're not buying shares in an ETF in ETF is something like a mutual fund That buys Bitcoin You're buying shares in an ETF that buys futures on Bitcoin And why would you do it Well you might do it for the same reason the SEC has pushed Bitcoin ETFs this way The SEC thinks that holding bitcoins directly is not very safe And there's some reason for believing that Yeah I mean because hackers can sometimes get in you can forget your coin password So there's a structure to this Now futures This is a person entering into a contract with someone else a counterparty agreeing that at a certain future date someone's going to buy something from someone else So it's a way I think Bitcoin is going up You could buy a contract that would profit if that works out that way Yeah it's an indirect way of having exposure to the upside and the risk of Bitcoin And again it's something you could do directly You could call your stockbroker and buy futures but if you're not experienced in dealing with futures it's a little bit tricky So I guess one of the things you get with this ETF is you get the exposure to Bitcoin in a way that the SEC thinks is safer And you don't have to be an expert in futures because the ETF people are going to handle all of that rigmarole PS all of this for a price right If you buy an exchange rated fund that's managed it costs There's always a cost You pay for convenience and in fact you might want to hold off because this is just the first fund We're expecting at least a dozen more funds in the near future and you might want to shop around and get the lowest cost because futures are futures Eric Gordon is a professor at the University of Michigan's Ross school of business Thanks for the help on this My pleasure David Let's do the numbers Dow S&P and NASDAQ futures are all up in the three tenths to four tenths of a percent range Crude oil is up 1.1% now 83 38 a barrel still near its highest level in 7 years Netflix.

"Unfortunately there's too many examples of that not being the case right now. Though i you know we're not far from som areas that you know i can tell you firsthand my wife. Is you know a stick you nurse and she sees gunshot victims all the time you know until everywhere is a safe place right and i can tell you. We sell the bullet safet sir and last year they were hot to trot. Everybody came in and couldn't keep them on the shelf. Yeah no What you look at things through the lens of trying to protect yours right and what you truly love and care about right absolutely threatened. It's one thing but if you feel that they are threatened. You're going to do anything in your power to protect them and their wellbeing. And that's what a lot of people were coming in here with with the riots and the protests and the was things of that nature. You're finding people who look they weren't trying to get involved. I just wanted to make sure that they could ensure their safety. Yeah absolutely well in the so this guy he he against laughing the type of people that might by this type stuff. He was talking about bulletproof vest but he also brought guns into it and so i explained to him that. There's the two people that you're thinking about right now one. They're protecting themselves from other normal people who might just be crazy out to get them protecting themselves from what they see is maybe a government that's gonna try and overstep their bounds but the third category that nobody seems to talk about is why we don't have wars here in the united states wars happen in other countries if we're if we're involved in war most of the time it's happening over there because the majority of their populations not armed. We have an entire army of citizens that could easily protect their own property. in the event. I mean you talk about an outside military force saying in. Don't get me wrong. Most of us don't have military grade equipment but to say we're gonna tak the united states and we wanna play over there. Where are you going to do it because now you have to worry about not only our military forces but also just are civilians right and After i after. I mentioned that to the guy he goes. Oh wow you know what. I actually never thought about it that way. I was like yeah. I mean you say what you want to about any of this stuff. But you know there's a there's a good reason behind everything That people do when they when they're purchasing these items for the most part. Some people have bad intentions. You know. we'll we those people out as best as we can while. And i'll tell you why i mean thank you back to two thousand and one and just the sentiments around those. You know the september eleventh event and you know there was a Huge fear that that you're right nothing had happened on our soil But that doesn't mean we're always safe. And that doesn't mean with afghanistan you know being under taliban control again and with them having a little bit more. Free reign of of a of a whole nation now Our whole country. Now that can you know potentially position themselves to attack freedom it's not. It's not out of the realm of imagination right. Yeah absolutely so with all this being said. I'm gonna kinda switch topics here because we are running close to time. I'm only gonna take about ten minutes of your time With all this being said just like you said we've got to figure out a way to get more people actively involved in in the firearms industry get more people accustomed to shooting guns and handling gun safely. How do we do it. What are some mean. Do you have any ideas. What are some things that we can do that. We're not currently doing to to get more people involved while a this is one of the things where most passionate about okay. Because it's where we're at and it's what we're seeing where in a rather liberal town of ann arbor and You know we're seeing a lot of people who've been scared of guns and who never saw the need to own a gun but then one people fighting in the grocery stores over toilet paper last year all the sudden you know they realized okay. Well i'm not gonna tell my friends. But i'm definitely make sure that i'm safe in my home right until we saw all these people who are coming in not wanting to talk much about it but they didn't they're a threat to themselves right know which end of the gun to hold and how not to you know their finger instantly goes to the trigger and they wanna point it at a you know what we try and do is create if they've space here in our retail environment where we check the guns consistently every single time. They changed hands but be able to take the people where they come and not push them awhile and not make them feel insignificant or stupid for asking. Maybe you know maybe a question that we take for granted because we know it but be able to take these people and provide them the necessary steps that aren't extremely expensive but to be able to give them opportunities to try it before they buy it and give them opportunity to stand by them if they don't like it within thirty days. We're going to refund you whatever you paid for that gun to help you get into something. That's more suitable for you and then it comes down to. We're also going to give you a free private lesson. Purchase without and so these are just different ways that were trying to look. I don't want to sell you a gun half walk out and never use it. I want you to come in and learn how to use it. Because i can tell you or you can watch a video but until you do it firsthand. You're not gonna ever truly be competent right. We want you pass tent. We want to confident so after that first lesson. We're going to give you a something we created. It's basically like when you go to the doctor of script we're gonna give you a script that tells you what you need work on what you covered in your free lesson. And then it's a discount on your next lesson to get you back in. God we're gonna make members of ford -able for anyone to come in and practice i think the biggest Thing we can do is try and rear each each person that comes in through our doors and then one given the opportunity to speak about firearms given opportunity to answer questions across whatever platform you're on be able to say. Look the firearms and bad. There's an inherent sense of responsibility that comes with owning one and your responsibility is to safely. Learn how to use it how to store it and be responsible citizen with it out to join a league. I'm out com. We're gonna have you know inexpensive classes that take you from way to whatever level you want to go but it comes down to your perception of these people if you perceive them as a nuisance if you perceive them as somebody don't feel like dealing with you're going to have issues We want to welcome people with open arms. Because they're coming to us asking for solution if we can't provide that solution that we're not doing anybody who appreciates the second amendment as service right absolutely. Yeah i agree one hundred percent. I think i'm gonna go ahead and wrap it up. But i wanted to do something i think might be kinda fun for just a second. I'm up at five seconds on the clock. Are you comfortable with first name. Shout off for all eleven of your siblings and five seconds. Can you do it okay. Ready.

"Wire just came out with a movie called Run hide fight. And i am not personally seen it yet but i need to know. I haven't either but i'm interested. It's it's it's very interesting to me. And the premise of it is the I saw the trailer. It's a little scary. My understanding of it from the trailer is it's about this School that they have an active shooter situation and there is a girl in there who's trained in firearms and they basically evacuate the whole school and she's like the only one left on the inside and my guess is she ends up being the hero the show. I don't know because i haven't seen it but It's very engaging very interesting. Looks like it's really well done but the most important part to me is. This is a conservative outlet that put this movie together produced it and launched it all on their own. This is the first example of something that's actually being done well and actually has some momentum behind it so this was put out by the daily wire. I think it's available right now and it's called. It's called run hide fight. I believe Interesting so anyway. I hate to check it out. I hate that that opportunity to get got taken away from you guys. I hope that at some point in time in the future you know maybe there's other opportunities that are similar to that through different avenues that you guys like one of the biggest things that we face in the day to day is uh marketing You know through. Most businesses best opportunity to market via social media is completely Censored or firearms industry. And you know you can't even give them your money not promote something no and oftentimes if you push the issue too much. They'll you know suspend your account or you know make it to where the algorithm is set up to not show you in a in the same way that anyone else anybody out that can perm. Oh absolutely anything but if it has to do with the firearm store Firearms industry completely. Shut down yeah. It's it's insane. And they they even go so far as to actually physically remove followers from your account some cases where the person who's following. You didn't do it but they also don't know that they don't follow you anymore. They just stopped seeing your content and then later down the line you realize you know. One of your brothers suddenly is not following ann arbor arms anymore. You ask them why he's like. I don't know anything about it well. There have been instances where facebook or instagram has came in literally cleaned up. What somebody follows But we face the same kind of discrimination here especially on the social side of things. I mean literally yesterday less than twenty four hours ago site. Mark had one hundred forty three post removed. We got a notification one hundred and forty three of our post removed from facebook for violating violating their terms of agreement. But when you when you look at the post you're like i don't understand we. We cooperated with everything you told us to do. We don't have you know we don't some of them. Don't even have firearms in them. You know and it's not like occasionally we might post a picture of somebody who went out and shot a hog or something. And if you don't wanna see a day amoy okay fine. We'll figure out a way to promote promote it without doing that and they're still getting removed. And when you ask for clarification you get no answer yeah. I don't know why i'm surprised. And i'm not really but it fat know Firearms are definitely get a bad rap and become the sort of mascot for a lot of things that are wrong in our country and you know our founding fathers got it right and they realized that we needed the ability to own and basically have our own freedoms in our own hands and you know a lot of that is getting taken away slowly but surely and so yes. We need to focus on what we can control but we also need to be aware of our surrounding the news the media they only show one thing and they show that they don't show the person with a concealed carry permit who was carrying. And we're able to stop something very tragic from happening. Shell right if they do. It might be fifteen seconds and moving on no they don't show it at all and and for two reasons one. It doesn't fit the agenda but to. It's no longer news if there was no situate. The situation was dissolved. There's no reason to report on it. So it's it's the said it's the sad truth is it happens. Literally thousands of times a day across the country that domestic violence or assault are stopped just because somebody had a firearm in most of the time didn't even have to shoot it. But at that point time it does not become newsworthy because nothing happened Which is said. These organizations are all rating starved. So they're only gonna report on terrible terrible things But it is funny to see a government that wants to disarm its citizens and then give billions of dollars worth of military equipment to the taliban. Yeah yeah i worked We attended a trade show here in fort worth last week. let's see what was the texas trophy hunters hunters extravaganza and our booth Was the cellmark booth. We had site mark pulsar. Fire filled a bullets safe and in fiercer. All of our five brands batum. We had him in one booth. And so i had the bulletproof with a bulletproof vests up there at the front of the booth. And i'm working at so. I'm talking to people and i'm selling stuff and a guy walks up to me laughing and i'm standing right by the bullet bulletproof vest and he's just laughing and like who buys this crap and i was like man a lot of people by this stuff and i was like i was like thank you know i there are the doomsday properties which everybody laughs at. You know Whether it's a good idea a bad idea. I don't know but they buy it but in the recent Violence to tap into the last two years across the entire nation. Some of the big. I mean look at chicago has multiple like double digit shootings up in the twenties or thirties. Almost every single weekend people within those communities. There's good people in. They're scared for their lives. They're buying this stuff up like crazy in and he was like he was like well. Isn't it mainly just the people that are scared of the government sustain people who are scared of getting their guns taken away and i said you know there is a there is a factor of. Yes you know. Some people carry or have guns or have bulletproof vest because they are scared that one day the government is going to try and income and take over their lives. Yes that is true but what you're not thinking about you're setting in your comfy house in your neighborhood or whatever it might be completely safe on a day to day basis.

"Of them or a lot of times. There's actually somebody falls in love with the trigger on one of Radio in the hand but the other one and a lot of the big things about the shield to point out was that gripped texture and it was always one of the things that we would say. Look in your hand. The spills rop when go and shoot it. You actually appreciate right texture. Because it doesn't move around in your hand as much but that is one of the things that you have to understand about yourself. If you're not wearing a t-shirt underneath your outer shar up in the next one will rob against the skin right. yeah absolutely so i I had heard i. I was looking through my notes before. I walked in here and i saw that at one point in time i recently you guys were working on. Maybe getting some type of tv show deal lined up But then some stuff happened. That kind of fell through Primarily because of some discrimination issues against the firearms industry. I don't really want to you know. Obviously we don't want to drag anybody through the mud. We take it all day long everyday but generally the firearms industry doesn't dish it back out to companies do as bad without without necessarily slandering anybody. Could you walk me through kind of what happened in this. In this situation though you know we were approached with the opportunity and it was something that was sort of too good to be true It was really awesome opportunity where it would do industry spotlight and they wanted to pick you know everything from manufacturer on up to retailer marketing company. And they wanna just highlight somebody different. You know whether the manufacturer on one level the distributor the retailer and all the support whether it be a marketing company or you know people that geared what they do towards the firearms industry. So they're doing sort of an industry spotlight and reputation for customer service. Kind of was what led them to look for us and that was an honor We expressed our concerns about. You think this can go mainstream and you can get this out to all these different channels. Then let's go for it. And then you know and i think they learned a lesson as well as when it was all done an edited and if they did a really good job on it but when it came time to put it out to the different channels that you know they were used to being able to go through It was all shot down just because of the fact that it was a buyer arms industry related piece and so we're sort of used to that We thought this was going to be different. I don't know why But once again you know we thought with the people behind it that they obviously knew what they were doing and could would be able to with our math ledge of wanting to spread the firearms into the next generation. What it's going to require the personal level responsibility to take these people any level bring them in and provide them the resources necessary to be a safe responsible gun owner otherwise the people who grew up on the farm shooting. A gun are dying off. Farm fields are being turned into subdivisions and the country. Is you know getting further and further out and people are less aware of firearms and firearms safety. Our grandfather our grandparents generation. They knew how to use the firearm. It wasn't anything new. Everyone knew how to. It's just something you did part of your upbringing But now it's totally different and especially in two thousand twenty with the people coming in. Most of the people had never touched a firearm. While it's very concerning if we don't step up to the play and try to do something instead of turning our back or being frustrated with the level of novice nece. Then we're doing all of the second all of the people who appreciate our second amendment. We're doing them at this service because we're not off during the next generation absolutely well and i think you know i've talked about it on previous podcast before with other guests were they were discriminated against On the financial side of things you know. They had trouble finding a processor. That accredit processor that would take their accounts and if they if they yeah if they did find one they charged them crazy rates rates. You know double what they would charge. You know any other customer is people are unaware. This started back in the obama administration when he started operation. Choke point which targeted industries the firearms industry. Being one of them It targeted these industries in a loud these financial financial institutions to really kind of boyscout working with them Now since then some states have started Especially on the firearms side texas. Just did this a few months ago. coming up with legislation that makes that illegal So thank god. I hope michigan jumps on their eventually but when it comes to stuff like tv shows this. This is happening all the time there other opportunities for people in the firearms industry where they've had some type of plug like that that got pulled from them because the network or the distributors wouldn't pick it up and just like you said it's up to us to be able to educate and train in in teach people new things but the people that before we grow up on a farm and as they grew up with twelve siblings at farm splits into twelve pieces and then those as those twelve siblings have kids that farm splits into more pieces and all the sudden. You've got kids selling off property and and stuff like that. They turned into housing divisions. Twenty years down the road. You've got People who didn't grow up with the same ability of being able to fire on their property. I get that You match that up with companies that straight up refuse to show programming because it's a firearms business that leads to a population. That doesn't know how to use guns and frankly doesn't get to see firearms even through their media so they're very ignorant about it what it's gonna take on. Unfortunately it's this way across every aspect of our society now. Not just within the firearms industry but conservatism in general is being suppressed time across everything we see it in hollywood movies We see it in the government. What it's going to take is some big conservatives out there got to start their own platforms. We've got to be able to create our own content and figure out a way to get that out to people and i'm talking about you know you got dish network direct tv. You got all these Channels that provided stuff for them. We gotta have our own set like it's. It's this huge task that we've got to be able to do and you know you see. Let's see who was that. Somebody just came out. It was like the first big hollywood. Not hollywood movie produced The daily wire the daily.

"And just to pull out in. Turn our backs as you know. You know sad in a way. Yeah i agree completely and Yeah it's a crazy there's politics behind every single move nowadays teams like you know everybody is trying to You know prop themselves up for for one thing by by doing something else and without getting into the politics of it all Would you know we all just need to fill. We feel these emotions for these situations in in rightfully so But we gotta remember on the back end just whatever we can control control what we can't you gotta give it to god And that's that's the way. I with my life and you know there's a lot of emotions play here but but like you said You know we we have to fall back and rely on something and when everything else seems to to be going away. I i always feel like like he's there anyway. I'm going to take care of stuff so we'll just hope that happens instead of getting instead of getting sucked down this rabbit hole I'm gonna switch it back over. We'll talk a little bit more about ann. Arbor arms now you guys also go by A three is that right. Well three is just sort of a easy way to you. Know ann arbor arms. Where in ann arbor michigan. So right arm stands for firearms obviously and so a three. Since there's the three as is just kind of like a nice little logo kind of fits and so it's all part of who we are kuhn so we don't go by one or the other all kind of part of it. If somebody was going to try and find you on google they would use ann arbor arms okay. That's that's the most important part because if anybody does listen to this and decide to check you out i wanna make sure thing find easily So you guys you guys are full retail shop and then you also have a gun range. Is that correct. that's correct. We have twenty four lanes three different beds. Okay very nice. Well yes as well as retail retail side of stuff. I mean Walk me through a little bit about what you guys do is just as it firearms optics. All your normal stuff or you guys. Get any specialties. What what's arbor arms all about on the retail side. All right so. I think the easiest way to describe us is we have a good better and best mentality If you go to a car shop and you're or if you go to a dealership and you're shopping for a car you wanna see what you're looking at but you might also want to see a step down something a little less expensive and you might wanna see something a step up a little bit higher right so we wanna have a selection that you know sorta meets our facility in our mentality and have something for. Everyone want to happen inexpensive stuff that we approve of that. We've been able to guarantee sort of works as well as the popular stuff as well as the sorta higher end stuff that you don't see everywhere at every gunshot sureau. We wanna have a little bit of everything. I would say we do a lot of. Ar we do a lot of concealed. Carry firearm and everything in between what What do you. The most popular concealed carry gun on the market. A definitely be between four. I don't know if i could tell you. The exact first second third and fourth places but it would definitely be between the glock forty three acts the big three five The how cat springfield at the moment and the shield plus the new shield plus so out definitely say you know those four. I don't care who is lifted is though spark on a show up. Yeah yeah. I would agree. Those are the ones that seem to to hear quite a bit about. I personally have Both the springfield And the smith and wesson For me the hell cat was a little bit better. Fit for me at was a no brainer to go with fourteen rounds while i also sorry. I had the smith in less than impe two point. Oh shield so. This was bought it before the before the plot. Yeah yeah so anyway. I then i upgraded to where that gun for a long time and i liked it a lot but i'll tell you that the two point oh a grip on the. Snp are sorry smith and wesson. Yeah the That grip was just a little bit too abrasive against my my skin when awarded my belt But also i had a lot of. I had a little bit of trouble with that. Gun personally With anything past. I would say like about fifteen yards. I would start to my trigger. Pull would kind of. I would drift off in my impact would always be off to the right a bit and after evaluate after shooting it for a while i was able to kinda correct that a little bit but i still always kinda went over to the right and i had good groupings but always over to the right a little bit. Why shut shut the hell cat and fell in love with immediately. I didn't have that issue at all. And the only difference. I can think of is Completely different grips. The smith and wesson was a little bit wider in skinnier So it might imagination. Is that when i pulled the trigger is getting a little bit of turn within actual grip versus the healthcare That that that's exactly what it was. It you're slightly over gripping cause it was just the way that in your hand and the slightly wider grip of the hal. Catch a student you better. Yeah yep and i it. It felt a little more comfortable for me. And at the time. I went from seven rounds to to fourteen rounds So that was a no brainer for me. But yeah that's what i'm carrying. Now it's interesting because Let's see who was it. That just came out with a new compact pistol. Was it ruger. Was maybe tour. Debt the match. Yes that one gained a lot more attention than i expected a little bit low to the you know. They're not the first one now at most things but there are always going to have something in the games. The thing about a ruger. They always seem to work To me in the path haven't been the highest on the feature right side of things but they always tend to work so it's something that we always have. It's never the most sought after it's never the least sought after. But it's always kinda you know just just underneath the the the main Contenders but in not a huge distant. Yeah the price. The price point reflects to within the from ruger to these other brands to generally across across a across the spectrum. So that's one reason. I bring them in there because if somebody is looking at getting a concealed carry weapon today they need to know those four main ones pleasant if you want something on a little bit on the Cheaper i wouldn't say cheaper side. But the i wouldn't say lower end it's it's a lower value. It's price lower price lower than the other ones lower price slightly lower but If i were. I think one of the biggest things as you know somebody who carries every day One of the coolest things that we can do here and it's not to just jump back and plug guys but at the same point we want to get out and try the new things and see if it's better than what we currently have and one of the things that we do is we do the.

"Now. I'm married happily with two kit. Okay well that's unfortunate. I've been i've been feeling trying to hook somebody up here lately. I get some some female listeners. And i don't know maybe i'll just well now. Actually i do see. I did see you actually have eleven siblings. Is that right i do i do. I have a second oldest of twelve kids. Holy smokes same parents behn parents know twins triplets all. Not what house. okay okay. I think we've got the hook out there. And if people have bit by now than i don't know maybe they just need to go. Listen to another podcasts. Because that in itself is probably a whole podcast gang. Give me a little bit of information about you. And then and then let's roll that into ann arbor arms and what you guys do perfect So as you already mentioned. I come from a large family. My dad has a baptist pastor and also he's an engineer so he's been busy man. My mom stayed at home and taught us where homeschool done You know kind of grew up in a rather sheltered environment But one that the older. I get the more i can appreciate and from there you know. I kinda was rather rebellious as a teenager Wanting to opportunities. I saw other kids having and found myself kicked out of the home and kind of experienced some of the things my parents were trying to protect me from asia on my own and you know always knew that i wanted to be in the military especially after nine eleven. I just knew it was something that i felt the finger pointing at me Right and so after doing a lot of nothing for a year to I graduated high school And then joined the marine corps portland in the marine corps in two thousand five. Want to boot camp school of infantry Joined our local unit and left right away for build up training. We were deployed to Iraq after being there for oh not long over a month. I think it was five or six weeks. I was injured It was a roadside bomb. It's took my right leg and got some minor fractures in my back and minor brain injury but also to you. Know a lot of my innocence and took My my squad leader sergeant brock babb and our radio operator Josh hines killed them on in that explosion and one of my best friends josh. Bil- lost both legs in just a myriad of other injuries. And somehow still around and you know went through an extensive recovery several surgeries. I at one time i counted. It was over forty about four years in the hospital and got out. it's motivational. Speaking did a little bit of Pursuing golf a hand then kinda needed to get back into an everyday life and that's when this store in arbor arms was opening this big facility. This expanded facility. And that's when i jumped in here got involved with ann arbor arms just because i love the people and the sort of approach they were taken Was a little bit less than traditional. And i just you know i lined with it and i i truly enjoyed working with the customer and being able to not worry about anything other than just taking care of a customer no matter what that meant and feeling the ownership on down just really. That's what they cared about as well so found a nice bit here and worked myself up into the director of ranger retail. And so i now am able to kind of steer the ship to some degree and keep things focused on the customers that come in. And and that's what i'm really most passionate about awesome well Let me just i say. Thank you for your service and the sacrifices you and You know everybody else's made it. Sounds like that was a pretty traumatic experience i can. I can only imagine the emotions that you're going through even right now as we gladly hand afghanistan back to the taliban. Sure that You know being evolved involved in the military's That's gotta be hard to see that kind of stuff Go down the way. It has seemed like there was some some ways we could have done this a little bit more effective right and yeah i mean you know. I was born in ninety. Two that shocks people. I was born in ninety two but You know eight years of my life The the first eight years of my life only years we have not been in afghanistan. And that's insane to me to see the outcome. That's that's happening right now Right i mean. Do you have any thoughts on on. What's going on over there. But i do. And i have a lot of mixed emotions and i know. A lot of guys do Guys and gals that have served in you know just american citizens a whole. There's a lot of Uneasiness and you know there's a lotta reminiscent things that hearken back to previous wars that we've had and you know a lot of bloodshed and loss of friends and family members and you know somehow it makes it feel a little bit less important. The sacrifices that were made to some degree I also understand that. There's a lot more at play here and there's some political positioning and things going on and it's just where we're at as a as a whole is a little bit concerning but i don't really want to get into the politics of it all tune so much as yeah there's definitely some frustration and concern and sadness and you know a lot of a lot of my personal friends. You know blood for the same thing and Saw firsthand a lot of the families over there that were just struggling to survive in to raise their children and now the father. I look at everything through a different lens. I sort of look at it through my children's eyes and wanting to provide for them the best life experience humanly possible awesome. And then i look at the parents and those that are suffering in that country and how much worse. It's going to be for the people who are not taliban Afghanis and knowing that here. I sit in a comfortable room and have a comfortable life. And there's some people over there whose kids are gonna get snatched away from them and put into terrorist camps to train new terrorists things that nature. So when i look at it through that. I i'm so sad and at the parents that cannot provide the future that they were striving to provide in just a war torn country.

"Okay i've got four things to recommend to you in case you want to check them out. I had posted some instagram stories. Last week where i was wearing these cheetah print like workout shorts. And i got so many. Dm's i think i was actually trying to talk about something that we were doing with us blah or maybe a four things tv shirt. I think i was wearing that. That's what she said from the office. And i obviously am like. Oh yeah look at this. Spa four things go check it out but all anybody wanted to know about was where my cheetah leopard shorts were from mary. Ann arbor like on a walk and i was wearing them and so i thought i would let you'll know they're outdoor voices. They the relay three inch short. And i got them in leopard-print but i'm probably going to order other colors because i really am obsessed with them and i want to wear them all the time. The next thing. I want to recommend has to do with shaving face now. I've mentioned it many many times like i love shaving. My face been doing it for years now and i used to highly recommend the tinkle razors which i still like those. If that's your preferred tool to use. But something i've been using lately and i still get questions about just wanna clarify. Here is the gillette disposable razor but you can't get the type with the extra little moisture strip that breaks my face out for some reason. You just have to get the regular disposable razors. They're called gillette. Good news censor to know moisture strip their blue and you can just use them a few times and then throw them away and you can buy a pack of twelve. That added them to my amazon page. You know exactly which ones to get but you can get access to amazon favorite things at radio dot com.

Ken Burns on America, Selling His First Film and More

"This Independence day, we turned to a man who tells the story of America in her glory and struggle for unity. Ken Burns. Documentaries range from the Civil War to baseball, country music, and this year's Ernest Hemingway. As we first told you last fall, Burns calls himself an emotional archaeologist. He excavates lost love letters, forgotten photos and overlooked heroes. Research so deep viewers can feel like strangers discovering America For the first time, his films ask what it means to be American. So we asked What does it mean to be Ken Burns? Have had the privilege of spending my entire life making films about the U. S. Capital U Capital s, But I've also had the privilege of making films about us. The two letter lower case plural pronoun that has a kind of intimacy and warmth to it in the country Music film Merle Haggard says. Country music is about those things we believe in but can't see like dreams and songs and souls. It's telling us that there is in front of us are kind of Rational world in which one in one always equals two, but that the thing that compels us forward as human beings is that we look for one and one Equalling three. We find that in our faith, we find that in our art we find that in our love of each other, and I think one of the things I discovered working on country music is that When I understood this dynamic between the US and us lowercase uppercase that I realized there's only us know them. The choice was easy because us the Americans struggle to forge union from diversity has been Ken Burns obsession since he was 11 years old at the end of this lane in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

"Is davis right to see you and thank you for joining us here. You share a little bit about what inspired your interest in aviation and also did you have a mentor inspired. You want your learning how to fly. Absolutely i'm thank you for having me first of all And my story is definitely not your conventional story these days. I don't think of how i got into aviation by. Every story is unique so yours mine. I as a kid really had no family. History aviation didn't know anybody who is a pilot in also really had no exposure to aviation at all. I was actually afraid of flying as a kid. Because i had ear issues. That made it very painful. When i was very young so for years. I refused to even go on an airplane so i was not anywhere nearby. Airplanes airports pilots. Anything like that then. One day in high school. I think it was my sophomore or junior year. I was rolling around on instagram. Like a girl in software or junior year of high school would do. And i was on my instagram explore. Page and i saw a picture of a friend of a friend of a friend posing with a airplane. I think it was a serious looking back. And i think i did a double take because one i did not realize that small planes existed at all. I don't know how thought pilots trained but it definitely was not like that. And i also had no idea that you could just go up and fly for fun. I thought pilots trained to do a job and that was it. And i really didn't even know that much about that side of things either. So that really stuck with me. That picture and i ended up scrolling through this guy's page a little bit more and just seeing all of his adventures that he had gone on in this airplane around the same time i had to start going on commercial flights or college visits and school trips and every time i was on an airplane out of the window in think wow i wish i was flying so i was pretty dead set on going to engineering school so i ended up going to university of michigan for computer science engineering but the thought of flying was always in the back of my head just flying for fun. I never really considered it as a career. Until i've started but it was always in the back of my head is something maybe i would do one summer or just during school and one summer i was fortunate enough to get an internship in the ann arbor area so i had the money to go ahead and do my private flight training

But i knew from about a swallow wanted to be a heart moved to dallas moved to kansas city out and training with the best skills and particularly treating heart attacks with angioplasty instead. You have some wonderfully people from australia. New zealand in the my mentor in kansas city was from all actually a dislike from new zealand allah but when visit i'll be of the difference between the do another very different entry but nineteen ninety way before you were born. I imagine or at least run it. I join back in detroit. Michigan big practice. And i was the guy running a night treating sick people coronary Cardiac cath lab artists. But i was even back then very interested in the other part the About our of health which is prevention nutrition. Lifestyles sleep stress. Nutraceutical supplements the whole thing. Much more light perhaps naturopathy and chiropractic. So i was always reading on my own incorporating little tidbits been using coenzyme q ten of people for thirty years my college or and then i'll percolating along as very happy guy got a chance to look down to. The university mentioned developed a preventive cardiology program. But i knew that there was something else that i really had an energy for something else. I mean that was doing wonderful. Things are day is the same thing every day. When wonderful big over i went back to university in two thousand twelve a whole year doing a university based courses integrative cardiology natural gas and pretty much nutrition thing adnan stunning that for decades. But i didn't know all the nutraceutical isn't about chemistry testing and the epa genetics and the protonix and we can use fancy words. I graduated and of course. I say in traditional practice but i ultimately with some thought took a big breath five years ago and says you know what i've done enough cath lab emergencies. That mouse running three hassles on the weekend alone. A great practice. I one focus on prevention and i looked around the country. I could barely find in the united states preventive cardiology practice. That was not attuned to only prescription. Drugs are printing preventive cardiology practices more precision more prescription. I wanted to about more health lifestyle disease reversal. I gleaned from various people what i could kinda created a model. I left the insurance system. You wanna have a sleepless night. As a physician who's always had a whole room full of baylor's and medicare and blue cross as we call in the united states and others and tell people in the city of detroit that is not beverly hills los angeles by a reasonably prosperous busy city with auto industry. But i don't take insurance. I can't even take your insurance them out of the system and launched in five years ago and yes. There's always challenges. My tears thought that maybe. I did. Have alcohol rounds. Drug problem slices. Is he doing all as they didn't understand. It has been the best decision. I don't think would have been as meaningful if i didn't pay the price. All those years of doing traditional medicine I'm respected because know what heart catheterization angioplasty bypass Medications use them when needed by I'm very much dedicate myself as upstream cardiologists. I'm the salmon trying to go upstream. Everybody else is going the other direction. But there's a lot of people out there and you know. I i'm sure for practice that are looking or a different path. They're just tired and they feel tired too many drugs too. Many ten minute appointments with dr the game now. It's a good nurse or a physician since i've provided alternative of time education a different approach. And it's so gratifying. Amin that i'm sixty one years old. I don't know what the word retires.

What Happened To Connie Converse

"In nineteen twenty four elizabeth eaton converse was born into a devoutly religious family being by the nineteen forties. She changed her name to connie and moved to new york city to pursue music. She spent her twenties writing folk songs and rebelling against her traditional after little came of her musical ambitions in new york. Connie moved to ann arbor michigan in nineteen sixty where she took an editorial position at an academic journal by the age of thirty six. Connie was struggling with her mental health in particular and affliction she referred to as her blue funk. This was made worse. When in the early seventies connie received two devastating pieces of news. She lost her job and her doctor told her she needed a hysterectomy. After turning fifty in august nineteen seventy four. Connie converse said goodbye to her brother and friends packed up volkswagen beetle and drove away. Officially she's never been seen or heard from again in her final instructions to her brother. Connie asked philip to pay her health insurance up until a certain date. She never explained. Why but philip worried that something terrible would happen. When that day passed searching for answers. Philip found a filing cabinet that belonged to connie in his antics inside. He found old journal entries poems notes and a farewell letter addressed to quote. Anyone who ever asks it read. So let me go please. And please accept my. Thanks for those happy times that each of you has given me over the years. And please know that i would have preferred to give you more than i ever did or could i am in everyone's debt. Philip did as connie requested. He let her go for thirty five years. Never knowing if she was alive or dead always hoping she'd return but from the moment she laughed. Philip and connie's closest friends feared the worst they own about connie's blue funk for quite some time though. Connie was never officially diagnosed with clinical depression. So far as we know in her farewell letter she wrote as an over educated peasant. I've read a good bit about middle-aged oppression and no several cases other than my own. According to establish psychiatric consensus those who suffer from major depressive disorders tend to lose interest in activities that previously brought them joy in connie's case when she moved to ann arbor. She stopped writing music. But even while living in new york connie's lyrics described feelings of isolation in her song called. Sorrow is my name. She wrote from the perspective of sadness is self sneaking in and out of people's minds in the bridge of the song sorrow kroons. And if you fear me i will come in haste and if you love me i will go away and if you scorn me i will lay you waste and if you know me i will come to stay. Perhaps connie wrote from her own experience overcome by a deep unshakable sadness that she felt would live inside her forever. She certainly wouldn't be the first person to live with undiagnosed depression in fact historians theorized that many historical figures battled similar mental illnesses before they were ever fully understood for example. Both frankenstein author mary. Shelley and president abraham lincoln reported experiencing significant bouts of melancholy. They'd regularly fall into deep sadness often unrelated to the events of their day to day lives. Some scholars have interpreted these spells as episodes of clinical depression diagnosis. That didn't exist in the eighteen. Hundreds when both lived almost a century later as connie struggled with her blue funk there was still an incredible amount of debate surrounding what constituted and caused depression throughout the nineteen hundreds doctors around the world published opinions but the medical field never reached consensus early. Researchers like sigmund. Freud believed depression was the result of traumatic experiences of course psychologists today understand that the causes are much more nuanced and multifaceted. They include both genetic and societal factors and this understanding started to take shape in the nineteen seventies when clinician set standards for diagnosing and treating clinical depression then in nineteen seventy five one year after connie disappeared doctors. I coined the term major depressive disorder.

Individuals, 2000 of him but our own health care employees. That's just an opportunity to make a safer place for people to come and practice but also for our veterans to come in, but almost 9000 veterans, and my goal is by the end of them, probably next week or so, if I had my way, um, is to have 1500 veterans on a daily basis, receiving vaccinations from us. 750 1507, 150, New and 752nd.

And we're just really looking to meet the needs of our veterans and our employees to create a safe environment because all of us want to get to some type of new normal that's agreeable. And safe and so we're really pushing forward with that product. We have visor product at the health care system here, and we've been able to redistribute it out of Flint in Jackson Madonna product out of Toledo. But since you're such a limited supply of the during a product we've been actually supplementing them with visor product. So we're just, um Charging forward. We appreciate all of our veterans that are willing to come in. Anybody is 65 older and actually, we're moving down to 55 older and some of our areas they're willing to come in. We're willing to vaccinate them. Gonna ask you for 1st and 2nd appointment because it's very important that you just have the one appointment, But to have both appointment is both appointment in both vaccinations. They're going to make a difference. How we move forward. So I'm going to tell you about 11,000 veterans to this date or veterans and employees, the stepped up to the charge and they're willing to go forward. Okay.

How monkeys played an instrumental role in the development of polio vaccines

"In the nineteen forties. America was under a constant threat from polio. A disease that had a then unknown cause and devastating effects especially in children. It spread quickly through unclean water and unwashed hands leading to symptoms like nausea fatigue. Fever and a stiffening of the body summers especially saw surges infections particularly around swimming holes leading to post polio paralysis and in some cases death on average thirty five thousand people were disabled each year. According to the centers for disease control and prevention president franklin delano roosevelt was among the most notable people to get the condition putting a face to a still uncertain disease. A vaccine was desperately needed as scientists learned about the transmission process including the fact that anyone could be a carrier in the next few years rival scientists jonas and albert sabin worked with teams in their labs on two completely different vaccines. Sabin worked on an oral vaccine. While sulk created an injectable vaccine that using a kill version of polio in the book polio and american story. David m ocean ski writes about the urgency of work. During the time quote. I talk there was reason to hurry the year. Nineteen fifty two was the worst polio year. On record with more than fifty seven thousand cases nationwide the headlines screamed of plague season and polio time. Twenty one thousand victims suffered permanent paralysis and about three thousand died from the very beginning of the polio epidemic. Monkeys were considered to be essential for research before human trials could take place becoming the unsung heroes of the fight to defeat the disease was through animal research that scientists i discovered that there were three strains of the deadly disease. The monkeys were purchased at a high cost from india and the philippines and shipped to the united states. Many died in transit so the national foundation for infantile paralysis now known as the march of dimes began overseeing their import in nineteen forty nine. A foundation established a special facility known as ot farms and rural south carolina to process the monkeys arriving from abroad oak tree farms operated in the picnic colony a beaufort county in coastal south carolina. Originally called the prichard bill primate center. The forty acre or sixteen hectare tract of land along. The river was called by local newspapers. The ellis island for thousands of monkeys from india naturalist john. Hamlet had the job of finding a space for the primate center. That was both connected to deep water ports and airports but also remote enough for neighbors the area he chose closely approximated the natural habitats of the monkeys with its abundance of shady long leaf pines and a mild climate. The monkeys were originally brought into savannah. Georgia one of the region's biggest ports and taken by truck the thirty odd miles or fifty some kilometers to the farm. When air travel became more popular they were flown by a london and new york before travelling by train to the low country. Once they arrived at the farm veterinarians treated the two thousand or so recess and sign a mogus monkeys before clearing them for transport to research facilities around the country. The monkeys spent twenty one days. Getting acclimated and eating a special diet was scientists carefully monitoring their status many went to sell nukes facility in pittsburg and sabin in ann arbor where they were given vaccines to test the vaccine. Strength against the three strains of poliovirus a few locals were aware of the research that was going on at the farm. Despite rumors of people encountering the animals we were unable to discover any opposition to the research facility perhaps because it was not well known and also because opposition to using animals and testing was not very common at the time in the united states. The movement against animal testing didn't pick up steam until around nineteen eighty in any case. The farms purpose wasn't permanent. Once sox polio vaccine was deemed a success and released to the public in nineteen fifty-five the work of qatif arms was no longer necessary and the facility closed in nineteen fifty-nine saban's oral vaccine came into use in nineteen sixty one the foundation that had established the facility. Its attention to reducing premature births. The monkeys found new homes and labs across the country. According to a former employee named louise crawford things at the farm were left just as they were including the monkey cages. A caretaker kept the grass and plant life at bay. The lab was locked up ready for someone new to take on the important task of preparing monkeys for research but that day never came in nineteen eighty the land and its contents were sold to development group. The lab equipment was donated to a local school science department while a farmer claimed the former monkey cages for his own animals. Today acreage along. The river is mostly residential and privately owned thanks to south and saban's vaccines polio cases of plummeted from three hundred and fifty thousand nine.

January and february are going to be rough times. I actually believe they're going to be the most difficult. I'm in the public health history of this nation. I'm a survivor. I'm public about that. So i have all kinds of feelings about this because at this point now. Early december win. We're recording this. Two hundred seventy six thousand people more than that have been killed by covid. Nineteen the coronavirus has exposed so many tributes in terms of structural poverty. Racism power black and latino working class communities you know have been devastated and yet also been in this country functioning in your book you write quote one of the abiding truisms in epidemiology is that the poor will always suffer more and worse. Yeah so we're clearly seeing this. A lot of us are thinking about the vaccine and what the vaccine looks like when we're thinking of the context of structural inequality and racism. So give us your sense. A lot of people are like okay with there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yes but i'm more circumspect. We're still in this for the long haul. But i don't know you tell me. How should we be feeling about what's happening right now while i'll tell you this we didn't have to be here. And when we think about an epidemic and what creates an epidemic. I want folks to understand that while a virus is naturally and there's very little you can do to stop the epidemic or the pandemic that follows is a function of the choices we as a society make both before that virus emerges while virus is spreading and after that virus has taken its toll and right now. I'm feeling some kind of way about the choices that we have made the choices and that we are making. And i am optimistic about the potential for a vaccine and what a vaccine could do to halt the near exponential spread of this virus. But at the same time. Right when i look at all that has come before it. And the fact that we could not as a society invest in any sort of collective action right to bring down this virus. We could not come together. We could not see each other as worthy of our protection by doing something as simple as wearing a mask. We could not invest in the means of public health. I'm really quite worried. And i'm really frustrated. And so this virus. I think tells us something about ourselves as a society and what we need to do to be able to truly and deeply empower low income people and people of color and rough and do so in a way that brings us together around stopping the next one because if we don't there's nothing stopping another virus from emerging another pandemic from happening. I mean we think this is sort of a once every century thing. But that's just not how it works. There is literally no reason why any viruses out there like look you know. Corona virus came this year. So we'll wait a century until the next one emerges right and we've got to get some things right before serious about protecting folks

All right, we'll stay in the big 10 in Ohio State has had no problems with this fella. Jim Harbaugh. Will he have a new deal and will he stay? At Michigan. Well, those to me, but I feel like two different questions. The second one is easier to answer them the first the first one Is the complicated one. Will he stay? The answer is yes. Jim Harbaugh will be the head football coach at Michigan Going forward. The question is, will they work out something long term with him? And my prediction is the answer is yes. I just don't think you could go into a college football season with a lame duck coach, not anywhere, much less Michigan. I'm going to say yes. Jim Harbaugh remains in Ann Arbor and has something added to his contract to make it feel less impossible for them to compete going forward. Really with you.

Is Snow Good For Plants?

Is Snow Good For Plants?

"Let's talk about snow for the plant new and discuss whether or not it's bad or good for plants. Yeah i was thinking about this. Because i had a question ellen from a listener who said. She didn't know whether she should plant this new plant because the snow and the winter cold might be hard on it and that got me to thinking that those are two different things the winter cold and snow. And maybe we should talk about whether snow just by itself is hard on plants. So that's what brought me to this topic. I think it's a really good topic because the answer might be counter intuitive to some people because the fact is that yes winter cold can be very hard on plants and sometimes snow can be depending on what kind of snow it is but snow actually is a great insulator for many plants and can help protect them against winter cold so i don't think that's something that most people understand. Yes you're absolutely right. I've had people say to me. What's the best protective mulch. I can put on the garden. And i usually respond a twelve inch snowfall because it keeps the temperature of the soil. Constant it it protects the rupaul's from heaving. Oh and this was interesting to me. Maybe you knew this. But i did not i read and hopefully this is true that as snow falls through the atmosphere it actually collects nitrogen and sulfur from the air and then kind of like delivers that to the ground. I'm going to say that only partially correct. Come because you're right. It does collect that as it falls through the air. And if that is one of the spring snowfalls or maybe. I don't know maybe you have. These snows more in the santa fe area. Then we do here. But in order for that nitrogen to be delivered into the soil. The snow has to melt fairly quickly after it falls. That is so interesting. Because in santa fe we get six inches in it melts twelve inches. And it's gone. It accepts in melting snows and melt so for you. That's no fall is what they call. Poor person's fertilizer for us here in the northeast where the snow typically stays. You know through the winter on the ground or at least say's first several days or a week or two Then all of that nitrogen that those flakes have picked up falling through. The air actually goes back into the air as the snow sits and so we only get the poor person's fertilizer when we have that you know freak two inches of snow in april and it melts right away. Well since our soil is much crappier out here than yours is. I would say that we need it. Well snow does contain. It's got nitrogen or not. It does contain a lot of airspaces snowfall. Which is why. Snow makes good insulator. I've never had as many beautiful fox gloves. As i had the year after we had a good two feet or more on the ground all winter long so it can be a great insulator for plants and of course the one way that snow might be detrimental to plants is when it's really really wet and heavy and either mashes plant down or break slim's off of shrubs or trees or that kind of thing or occasionally if it falls very wet and then it gets really cold and freezes into ice and again can break things. Yeah and that's more likely to happen in. If you've got like an early fall when the leaves are still on the trees in those leaves hold a lot of snow or if you have evergreens that are going to get way down and sometimes you see ann arbor vitae that gets covered with snow intellectually like split. And that's very sad. So what i do usually if i get a very heavy wet snow and i can see. The branches of trees are bending over. As i'll go up out there and knock some of it off actually discovered one other way in which snow is beneficial to plant. And i haven't thought about this but it makes sense when you think about it in a winter warm spell if you got a little bit of melting and there was no snow cover some plants actually say oh yeah it's time to start growing they'll sprout and then it gets cold again in that greenery dies off but if you have a nice snow blanket down and it warms up some of. It's going to melt but a lot of it's going to stay on the ground and protect that plant from sprouting too soon. Which i thought was kind of cool. Yeah snowfall moderates the possible heaving and thawing and freezing and and all of that back and forth temperature swings that seemed to be happening more and more in many areas. A snowfall

ICU Nurse On Dealing With Latest Coronavirus Outbreak In Michigan

"Care? And who doesn't joining me now is Dr Machida beer. She's a senior policy researcher. Rand and an emergency room doctor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Welcome. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you. You're a doctor in Michigan. Detroit was Ah, hot spot early on in the spring. I know you're in Ann Arbor, which is about 45 minutes away from Detroit. But how are things looking in general in the Detroit area? Cases. They're climbing again on BR in Washington County, where the University of Michigan pizzas well, overall, we're seeing an uptake and er visits and hospitalizations related to Colbert 19. All right. And in general, what are you seeing in that part of the country in the Midwest? The test positivity rate in the region has gone up. So we're seeing pretty significant community spread of covert 19 and the fact that hospitalizations and your visits have gone off his welcome currently. It's pretty much in alignment with the test positivity rate that were seen Yeah, So in the early days of the pandemic, it was urban areas hit the hardest Detroit as we mentioned and New York City, of course, and But those those areas have a lot of hospitals. Now the disease is spreading too. Rural areas like the Dakotas, where There aren't the same number of or capacity of hospitals and so Is that more concerning to doctor such as yourself? Where did these patients go? Absolutely. This is such an important question. Uh, so, you know, correct Detroit in New York City and other urban centers. We have a lot of hospitals and health systems. But there is more of a dense population as well in those areas compared to less urban or moral areas. However, you know, no matter which area you're talking about. Hospitals have limited capacities. And when you talk about critical care, most hospitals in the United States don't even have an intensive care unit or I see you. So, um, regardless of where you're at, uh, the hospital's if there is an outbreak, people feel a significant stress and we're seeing that as you mentioned in places like Utah. On Illinois. Most hospitals don't have a nice to you. So what happens with critically acute patients? If you're in a bad state with Cove it? Where do these patients go? Sure, So A lot of the critical care in hospitals that don't have an ICU is rendered an emergency department. And a lot of the patients who need ice. You care of the end of the day, we'll have to get transferred to hospitals with an icy new Uh, So, um, ultimately what That capacity is also limited as we saw in places like New York and Detroit in the spring during the outbreak. You know, Critical care is a commodity in the United States. Critical care beds are limited critical care nurses. Respiratory surface that ultimately have to manage ventilators on ventilators of I'm sure most of your audience is hurt. Mm hmm. Okay, So that brings us to the question of rationing care. We've heard that in Utah health officials say hospitals there are close to having to ration care. Very, very close within days. What would that look like? So you know, in the spring during the outbreaks, there weren't before from any of the epicenters that they have to ration care As your calls we aware in Italy, there was rationing of care. Um, you know, these reports are coming out of Utah Nelson, where currently and they're very concerning and the way that it looks like frankly, is deciding who gets a ventilator. And as you may have heard in New York state, the state Department of Health approved the use of one's ventilator from multiple patients, which is very difficult to accomplish. A kind of planning for potentially having to make such decisions. So it will come down to very sick patients. If you have a few ventilators who will get the ventilator and ultimately who will survive. But it has you know much broader Rickel effect. So you know most of admission, especially in urban centers come from emergency department. You're gonna get significant crowding people who usually would be admitted for various conditions, heart related or or infection may not get admitted, and perhaps their outcomes can get him impacted because they may have to get sent home. And because there's not enough care and resource is to go around. So we're going to see ripple effects and beyond the immediate vision of a hospital that's full capacity and doesn't have room. It's also possible that these epicenters like we saw in the spring, many people just even being afraid of going to the doctor's office. Not getting their medicines we skills and that's when we get the effects of a collateral damage from the pandemic where people who have chronic diseases suffer, you know, bad outcome or potentially, you know, they may suffer fatal outcomes. Because he didn't get the medicine or the care that they needed. Mm. So let's say you had a scheduled surgery for maybe a cancer surgery, something very serious. But not immediately. Life threatening. Would you then be postponed? There. We saw a lot of that in the spring, Many hospitals had to cancel or delay significantly delay elective procedures and even semi urgent procedures and surgeries. On and we may see that again. Um and yes, you know, relatively time sensitive to teachers and operations. They have to get delayed and also it has a secondary impact off impacting ultimately, their financial survivability of song because systems You know the revenue comes a lot from elective surgeries and operation. So it has. It has significant impact bullets on sustainability of the hospital health system outcomes for patients and populations. Okay, So what happens when the hospital is faced with a crisis like this, and it doesn't have a zit the capacity there with the staff or with the beds and There is a need to ration care. Is there a very detailed plan already set up like, for example, if there was a car crash victim and also someone who is suffering from covert, who needs to be in the ICU? Would the plans say? Okay, you treat this person before you treat this other person. Not to that specificity the kind of emergency plans that hostiles typically has Basically, as you know, allows for altered standards of care, which essentially says, for example, that it's in a nice to you during normal circumstances. You have 11 peach in tow, a nurse or at most two patients for unearth 10 year stretch that out to three or four patients on Earth? Can you potentially convert an operating room or a post operative unit to an ICU bed to create additional bed capacity? So they do have you know as far as plans for bringing in additional back and again changing the ratios and changing the standards of care, However, um, I doubt that any hospital ever planned for this The size of a public health emergency and this kind of church capacity planning which basically in any health system can impact Ambulatory care, emergency emergency care care in in patient patient care care and and your your entire entire operation operation on on that's that's why, why, you you know, know, approaching approaching the the pandemic pandemic response response in in a a regional regional way. way. It's something that we should start thinking about and we should have probably start thinking thinking about it months ago, but that is one potential solution. Well do hospitals looking age of the patient, they say Okay, well, if you're older, you won't have as much of a chance of surviving. Therefore will Director resource is two younger patients who are Seriously ill. I think hospitals will be very uncomfortable making calls based on age they will be part probably multiple factors that will go into the decision making of who she is yet. The care if there's limited resource is Hospitals have boards. Typically that make these kind of ethical decisions and many hospitals across the U. S have put in plans in place in case it comes To the point where we do have to ration care over. What we really need is a national standard for this. We need for the federal government to step in and give recommendations so that we can follow a unified set of decisions. Um, asked to who should get the care. Is it based on age alone? Is it based on calm abilities? Is it based on the quality of life? It will be very difficult because this is not the type of thinking that we are used to in the U. S medical system. So right now it's every hospital comes up with its own plan. That's basically how it is correct. Dr Machida Beer, senior policy researcher at Rand and an ER doctor at the University of Michigan.

"Katie. PODCASTS, we're happy that you can join us. Congratulations on the release of your second book, the Fallen Hero is the second book of Your Series started with the Dragon Warrior. That came out last month So yeah, congratulations on that. Thank you so much. So just to start off I, know you're from Michigan but did you grow up there your whole life? Yes I grew up in Michigan so I was born and blend and Then I moved to another area in the Metro Detroit area and I grew up in Michigan I went to school at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. So then spent another four years of my life in Michigan. and. Then in nineteen, I actually moved to New York City for. A little bit over a year, and then like back in Dundas may early June ish like when I realized this pandemic isn't GonNa be over anytime soon, I moved back to Michigan. So I am back home with my family. I don't really know much about like the Asian American community in Michigan I know that there's a pretty good like Korean adoptee. Population there. But like I'm not so sure about like the. Asian. American community there. So did you grow up around a lot of Asian Americans so I think Southeast Michigan which is where I live has one of the bigger populations but like it's still absolutely nothing compared to east coast or west coast like my school was probably five to ten percent Asian but I did grow up going to Chinese school. So that was nice. And I don't know about Korean adoptees let the area where I grew up actually has a big Japanese American population Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because I mean it's like Detroit promoter city right so like I think a lot of them would like their families will come from Japan to work at You know un-american Automotive Company for like maybe one to three years or something, and then it was really sad for me because I would make friends with them and then they would move back But yeah, that's like probably like the extent of the Asian. American community around here it's. it was a real shock for me moving to New York and just being so overwhelmed by all the Asians everywhere and like Asians, who are like like really Americanized Asians who are also like kind of fresh off the boat. Yeah I mean if you head to Chinatown, it's you know a totally different world. Yeah. Yeah. So I heard through the grapevine that you're pretty well known what? Pad Author. So I'm guessing that you have been writing since at least highschool I'm probably younger, right Yeah. We're civil. What Grapevine was there? It was just it was just like floating around. Okay. Interesting I have talked about it. I've talked a little bit too much about it I like. I like a joke that like I want to like block out that part of my memory but no walked had was like like I might thoughts on that website but. It was a good starting block for me to like really get used to like getting like writing a novel length story and also because it's so interactive I could get like reader comments on every chapter uploaded. So that was like really encouraging and for me when I started writing novels on what Pat I was in high school. So you know I was still dislike learning how to write a novel. So like honestly other writers and readers encouragement meant the world to me back then But yeah, I have been writing for a very long time I started out writing short stories when I was like seven or eight years old, I remember. my teacher gave all of us an. To write a short story and Lake. I. Still Remember that moment very vividly I like was running the story and I was like this is so much fine. I don't think you know had so much fun doing anything yet before I always was still very young. So I didn't know this is what I would want to do for the rest of my life. But then my teacher also praised me and was like Oh, this is like such a great short story, which is probably what she said to everybody back then but. I thought I was like the greatest writer ever so. In this industry, it really is everything but not like being overly competent just like. You know just having enough confidence to continue like pushing through rejections and putting yourself out there I think is definitely key but yeah, and after a very long writing journey I'm publishing novels now. Yeah. Do you remember what story got you that that key praise? I remember we were doing a on legends and myths I don't remember what like I think it was just like a different American legends like like big foot or. I'm blanking now but you know like the kind of and talking about and I wrote about a river but I don't remember like what river now but. Yeah. I just like surprised that I still remember that moment. So vividly because it's been like many many years. But Yeah I i. think that was a key moment for me is a writer.

The inside story of college football's wildest week ever

"College football conferences in the country have postponed their upcoming fall seasons. The Big 10 which includes powerhouses Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State, along with a pack 12 with the likes of USC, and Lay won't be hitting the gridiron at all in coming months. A veces Eric Mollo has more on the loss of football what it means for college towns and how this season could have a devastating impact on those towns. Thiss Week officials and five of the nation's biggest college football conference is known as the Power five made their decisions and for many of those major college football programs. There won't be any football come the fall Big 10 and Pac 12 have postponed their football season's and several other college sports were also postponed. Officials cited health concerns specifically, the long term effects Cove in 19 could have on the hearts of young athletes. Head coaches expressed their disappointment. Think our players This is what they live for. And when you play football to such a small window, so it's very disappointed, very emotional, and they hoped there might even be a chance to play in the spring. Others in the power five conferences took a different approach the A C C, which includes powerhouse programs like Clemson in Florida State, along with the S E C with Ellis you in Alabama. Indicated they're staying The course for now, and the Big 12 is going to give it a go. They released a revised schedule this week. It's a historic and unprecedented decision. The Big 10 has not Mr season since it was created in 18 96 playing through the Spanish flu pandemic and two world wars. The absence of college football this year also portends a major economic fallout. According to ESPN, canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in each school, seeing an average loss of $62 million. Football revenue alone and canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in billions of dollars of revenue lost those estimates Conservative. They exclude potential losses in corporate partnerships and media revenue for local communities such as Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, whose names are synonymous with the universities and college football programs They host The economic impact could be devastating. There is really nothing like Columbus on a false Saturday, but it just goes to show you the severity of this pandemic. City Council member Emanuel Rimi is the chair of economic development in Columbus, Ohio, home to the Ohio State Buckeyes. He's concerned for local businesses in the region. Power Five programs like the Buckeyes could collectively lose $303 million in revenue on Game day spending, according to ESPN. That has ramifications for the local economy. It's devastating to those campus bars and restaurants and retailers that rely on game day. Revenue from some estimates that up to 50% of their annual revenues come from game days anywhere, you might go after a game wraps up to shop and hang out. Might not survive. I think it would be unrealistic not to think that there could be closures as a result of missing out on the season. Dante Lucas, he helps to run one of those local businesses. He's the director of operations at Champs Sports Grill, a bar and eatery in State College, Pennsylvania. Home of the Big 10 school. Penn State. We really based our year upon probably about 10 weekends. Seven of them are football weekends in the fall when the football weekend in this spring So taking that away from us really, really, really hurts us chance is one of those local bars trying to survive the pandemic in the postponement of the fall football season marks just another financial blow. We weren't surprised. But it doesn't mean we're any less devastated. I just think it's been exaggerated and ATT. Least in our case. Ronald Philip Ellie is state colleges. Mayor, he says Penn State football brings in huge revenue for the town believes with a limited fan base and student body this fall Covert 19 It's still the town's biggest problem was my assumption, and I think the assumption of many others They would play without fans. The fans aren't here. They're the ones who patronize the local businesses. The issue of whether or not you play in my mind doesn't really mean that there's going to be a different economic impact. Think about the impact on municipalities like State College. We've lost a tremendous amount of money as a result of the Pan Derek For example, our parking revenues of dharam practically a $1,000,000 Sure for State college. They're hoping a Corona virus relief bill can help them get through this fall in that there's money for municipalities like us. Help us cover the costs of the pandemic. We need that money for these local towns of fall without college football is unprecedented and economically devastating, but their top priorities like that of every other town in America. Getting the fire is under control. But we can hope for us people follow health guidelines. And let's get this thing over with her back to reality and some sort of normalcy and 2021 not every business is likely to survive the cancellation of the fall season. These college sports town's air, hoping inventing together to fight the corona virus that many will be ableto weather the storm and survive until football comes back within six months to a year's time and stayed will bounce back. Stay college will bounce back champs will bounce back Reporting for perspective. I'm Eric Mollo, ABC News

Thiss Week officials and five of the nation's biggest college football conference is known as the Power five made their decisions and for many of those major college football programs.

Indicated they're staying The course for now, and the Big 12 is going to give it a go. They released the revised schedule this week. It's a historic and unprecedented decision. The Big 10 has not Mr season since it was created in 18 96 playing through the Spanish flu pandemic and two world wars. The absence of college football this year also portends a major economic fallout. According to ESPN, canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in each school, seeing an average loss of $62 million. Football revenue alone and canceling an entire college football season for power. Five schools could result in billions of dollars of revenue lost those estimates Conservative. They exclude potential losses in corporate partnerships and media revenue for local communities such as Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, whose names are synonymous with the universities and college football programs They host The economic impact could be devastating. There is really nothing like Columbus ofall Saturday, but it just goes to show you the severity of this pandemic. City Council member Emanuel Rimi is the chair of economic development in Columbus, Ohio, home to the Ohio State Buckeyes. He's concerned for local businesses in the region. Power Five programs like the Buckeyes could collectively lose $303 million in revenue on Game day spending, according to ESPN. And that has ramifications for the local economy. It's devastating to those campus bars and restaurants and retailers that rely on game day. Revenue from some estimate that up to 50% of their annual revenues come from game days anywhere, you might go after a game wraps up to shop and hang out. Might not survive. I think it would be unrealistic not to think that there could be closures as a result of missing out on the season. Dante Lucas, he helps to run one of those local businesses. He's the director of operations at Champs Sports Grill, a bar and eatery and State College, Pennsylvania. Home of the Big 10 school. Penn State. We really base Ah, year upon probably about 10 weekends. Seven of them are football weekends in the fall. Everyone's a football weekend in spring. So taking that away from us really, really, really hurts us chance is one of those local bars trying to survive the pandemic and the postponement of the fall football season marks just another financial blow.

Ronald Philip Ellie is state colleges mayor, He says Penn State football brings in huge revenue for the town but believes with a limited fan base and student body this fall Covert 19 It's still the town's biggest problem was my assumption, and I think I'm sure, many others. They would play without fans. The fans aren't here. They're the ones who patronize the local businesses. The issue of whether or not you play in my mind doesn't really mean that there's going to be a different economic impact. Think about the impact on municipalities like State College. We've lost a tremendous amount of money as a result of the Pan Derek For example, our parking revenues of Dharam practically a $1,000,000 Sure, State college. They're hoping a Corona virus relief bill can help them get through this fall in that there's money for municipalities like us. Help us cover the costs of the pandemic. We need that money for these local towns of fall without college football is unprecedented and economically devastating, but their top priority is like that of every other town in America. Getting the fire is under control. We can hope for is people follow health guidelines. And let's get this thing over with him back to reality and some sort of normalcy and 2021. Not every business is likely to survive the cancellation of the fall season.
