Affordable Housing Could Be Hit Hard as Seas Rise

"Sea levels rise. Flooding threatens many homes near the coast and as the problem gets worse people living in affordable housing could be hit. Hard ben strauss's chief scientist at climate central a nonprofit research organization. His team analyze the inventory of subsidized and low rent housing units in coastal communities around the united states. They found that if carbon emissions continue to rise unchecked. The number of affordable housing units at risk of coastal flooding is expected to triple within a few decades in some places. The change could be dramatic in atlantic city new jersey. More than half of affordable housing units are projected to flood at least once a year by mid century if home floods even infrequently it can be disruptive costly and dangerous recovering is particularly difficult for people with few financial resources and because affordable housing is already scarce in many areas resonance may struggle to find new places to live so sea levels rise if a community is going to invest public resources in protecting people. We might consider that they could be best spent in helping those who don't have the means to help

‘New locals’ at the Jersey Shore couldn’t be happier after moving from Philadelphia, nearby towns

"Story today. Kind of dovetailing with what Christine and I were talking about. People that have sure properties. You probably you either. Maybe one of these people or you may know somebody like this who have basically just packed up and relocated and move down the shore for the entire of year. Of this pandemic, and I've been doing all their work. Primarily or exclusively down the shore. Ellen Mogul Owns honeys Sitting eat, which is I mean, one of the greatest breakfast I've ever eaten in this town. Not for nothing. I don't know that she would care for my endorsement. I'm just telling you, it's Kind of, uh, Northern Liberties area. I love it. But anyway, these days, it says she's hanging her hat down the shore. Some of her fellow expat neighbors this winter in the beach town of Ventnor included in New York City financial consultant who traded in apartment in Long Island for a house. Three blocks from the ocean. Former band member of the psychedelic Furs who walks a Labradoodle in red canvas sneakers and the Chairman family who's dead. Jimmy admits to feeling a bit self conscious when he showed up to his kid's soccer practice in Margate, wearing the all black Street uniforms of his former home in the Big city. They aren't looking back. As part of a can't miss them influx of new locals. They kept things busy over the winter for appreciative pandemic starve shore businesses. Discovered the calming rhythms of the off season and even learned that heading off the island is properly known, is going off shore. Like to walk the dogs to the edge of the continent, Mogul said the other morning, speaking from a car where she was headed over the bridge into Philadelphia. A year ago. Second home owners were warned to stay away from the off season short towns during a pandemic that was threatening to strain local hospitals. But they didn't listen. Referring to hole up inside beach homes rather than apartments right out the coronavirus lockdown in less populated towns rather than anxious suburbs. Others bought at the shore for the first time, driving up real estate prices and creating a frenzy of bidding wars in Ocean County. Median sales prices in January and February jumped 38.5%. With nearly 500 units sold. That's a jump of 17.2%, according to the stats. Some realized renting. Year round in a short town is a bargain and houses a few blocks from the beach could be bought in some towns with mortgages requiring a fraction of what they were paying the rent in big cities. Once you step off the hamster wheel of New York, says Daniel Yahiko analyst who bought a home in Ventnor with her mortgage, now half what she paid in rent in New York City. And where her sister is also relocating, she says. It's hard to go back to work. Even in Atlantic City, often overlooked coastal real estate booms, has now seen an uptick in prices. You know, for years we've talked about what would bring Atlantic City back. Could it be a pandemic?

Isn't it coming up over the next couple of days. We'll stop at looking trump. Let's go madrid against chelsea some other. The chelsea as favourite not six to four on to advanced next trying athletics. Eleven to ten men rapids. He absolutely flying in la league the first half of the season they have somewhat just a little bit foreign off. Course levante being very much thorn in that side. You're against on wednesday lost on saturday. Let's welcome shall we. Don't just sit low. Lo look ahead to this game. Say let's start off with a athletic perspective xiaowei. What's going wrong with them. They all right. I think we'll go move the wrong with them. In part was that this was likely to happen at some stage. Although perhaps not in quite this way bear mind. They've now dropped many points in twelve days as they had in the inside season up until that point but is in for full-on collapse in all four games. It's one victory to drills the fate as a site. that'd be on such good full. It was fifty four fifty seven points at fifty fifty seven points in the first half the season that it feels like a glass. I think in a way if you look at the results before this games way they were always on edge there again where they were just about coming through very light winner. You've are weiner out of s for example that going behind much more often than previously remember they concedes remedies minute behind in the entire season. That's not happen more often. They're conceding early goals. They gonna seven games in a row conceding so it was the probably some point tip slightly now not into a full blown crisis but certainly into a situation where they were necessarily gonna mean sign that level incredible efficiency in winning games that they had up until fruitful weeks ago and coming up against a chelsea side. Don still unbeaten under to call but very very ordinary against hanson. Yeah just methodical. The hard sites watch chelsea they get. The job done. Didn't against that in the drawer but they were hard. Watch nothing. thomas tickle early on. I think he's testing these players. Think he's testing. Mentality is testing the players and different systems. Put the weekend. He lasted fifteen minutes and took stripe off again so he didn't work took off the ball put about so it's a chelsea sought while you won't you come on west off whereas the where's the attack and fled just very very methodical. Caffeine phoenix can tighten me. I can't imagine be free flowing ends and talking football full three job so don just call chelsea methodical and if you think of you don't feel like hey look at them they're open. They're attacking they're going to commit number full and so therefore if you have an athletic team that has been struggling to get results and you have a team. That is quote unquote methodical. Then yes you're exactly correct. This is not four three. this is set pieces. This is very tied very tactical certainly in the first leg in which is going gonna make it physical from. They have to get back to that. They've lost a little bit of that and they've lost a little bit of attention to details in the game against the weekend. Golda was not scored by motorists early on. There's the ball over the top from set piece attack and said piece of mind on a mis-clearance goes over fifty yards and morales one one situation against like that doesn't happen against atlantic city. But it's been happening more and more often over the last ten days or so they have to clean up those details and clean those details where you're going to find something that is going to be very very difficult to beat

Trump Rule Allows Natural Gas Transport By Rail In Dense Areas

"The us produces so much shale gas it needs to find new markets overseas. The trump administration has approved moving a liquefied form of the gas by rail. But some say that is too dangerous. Susan phillips of member station. whyy reports on a route. That would be one of the longest in the country. The guests will go first to a new plant in northeast. pennsylvania where refrigeration units will chill it too negative two hundred and sixty degrees fahrenheit. That's how it goes from a guest to a liquid. The part of the plan that scares a lot of people is the transport two hundred miles by truck or rail through some of the most densely populated areas of the east coast to a planned export terminal in new jersey. Vanessa keegan lives nearby with her family including three year old. Theo thank you want to take a picture. Okay you gotta get mommy ipad. We take another picture right. Era go railcars. Full of highly flammable liquefied natural gas or lng would roll about a block and a half away from keegan's home a daycare center sits right at the company gate so they want special permits to transport them right there. That train track. You could skip on down to in about a minute and a half and that terrifies me. This project is part of a larger push to export natural gas last summer. The trump administration changed long-standing federal policy to allow rail transport of ellen g anywhere in the country fifteen states including pennsylvania and new jersey challenged the move saying it puts people's lives at risk in this rust belt reason of new jersey.

34. Lets talk about save-a-dive kits and Healthways an original scuba equipment provider - burst 6

"Several months ago, I did a segment on voight. One of the original five scuba equipment manufacturers in the United States. As a reminder, those original five were decor. US, divers swim master Voi-, and health ways, and we know that void bought swim master in the early nineteen sixties. Today. I want to continue the discussion on these original five with a look at health ways. My research took me on some interesting twists and turns. A relay what I pieced together. But I'll caution. The things might not been. Things may have been a little bit different than what I present here. First. Let's talk about the founder of health ways. That was Richard Klein. Richard was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six in Maine. And he enlisted in the marine. Corps at the age of fourteen. Back then I guess you could get away with lying about your age. While he was in the Marines Richard studied calisthenics in bodybuilding. and. When he was discharged, he ended up in Atlantic city acting as a strong man. That's when he was discovered by a paramount pictures executive who brought him out west to the paramount studios where his job was to make. The movie stars Look Fit. While in his job, at Paramount Richard Started, a company called health ways. Hollywood and Nur tagline was America's way to health. The company had a wider range of fitness equipment and early nine thousand nine hundred fifties. They had water sports. Department that included things like Basques spear guns. And Fins and they called the Finns Webbie's. In one thousand, nine, hundred fifty four health ways obtain distribution rights to the LG. Declare regulator. If you WANNA learn more about LG Arpan. There's a great article in one of the old journal of diving histories by I'd liberal shelf. You can go and do some research on that. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, six, Richard Hired, Richard, E. Dick Anderson to establish a scuba equipment department. Diver Dick Anderson is interesting, Pioneer and scuba, and I'll probably have to do a podcast just on his accomplishments. They're pretty extensive. Diver. Dick also brings on Sam Lecoq to help him design house ways own regulator. They introduce their double hose regulator and name Scuba. I guess the copyrighted the name. Scuba I read somewhere that because of this copyright. US divers had to go with the term aqualung. The scuba regulator was produced between nineteen, Fifty, seven and nineteen fifty-nine. During this time both Dick Anderson and Sam la coke had left health ways. Sam Start at sports ways another manufacturer and produced a regulator that he called water lung. The water long. Caused some litigation with US divers because they were using the term aqualung. Don't know how that turned out. By one, thousand, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight Dick Anderson rejoined health ways, and he was the chief engineer of research. By nineteen sixty, the company was producing a new model called Scuba Deluxe. Health wise also developed scuba. Pack Harness. The Scuba Star Scuba air in something called the snark. Air SORTA like a snorkel with a pony bottle on it. By nine, hundred, sixty two. It looked like the company was developing a line for professionals called scuba pro. Well Richard Klein hired Bonin and Gustav Delay To head. Up this line. But. Unfortunately health ways went into bankruptcy on December nineteen, sixty two. And you'll find Dick Bonin and Gustav Della Vella Bought Scuba Pro for one dollar. And started what we now know today as scuba pro. But wait, there's more. And this is where things get a little hard to reconcile. Richard Klein unfortunately died in nineteen, sixty three. But health wage did not. According to Alec Pearce on one of these youtube videos, health ways continue to make regulators for scuba pro. I tried to find out more about the bankruptcy, and it took me to a document from the Small Business Investment Company Program from August one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty three. Near as an entry that shows health ways of having sales of two point, nine million dollars with ninety six employees and a prophet of twenty, one thousand eight hundred dollars. It looks like they got some investment money and statement said they were on the road to profitability and operating in the black. Somewhere along the way health ways was acquired by elden industries in Los Angeles. From what I gather Eldin was a may have been a toy company, and it's really hard to find out information about them. In any event, the last thing I could trace was nineteen seventy-one Scuba Cadillac from health ways that showed it as being a subsidiary of elden. I also read along the way that they sold scuba equipment to sears Kmart nine, thousand, nine hundred seventy S. I wasn't able to actually nail down when health ended. So my journey to find out more about one of these original five US scuba manufacturers provided some fascinating twists and turns and Lake Oj all journeys I passed a few interesting side roads. Some I went down. And others yet to be explored. Hope. You enjoy this look at health ways.

"They picked up three or four of the of the better white semi pros in Atlantic City to fill vacancies. So you actually had an integrated black team playing for about a month which is pretty unknown. They one of them in fact was a guy named Whitey grueling. Who was seventeen years old? At the time he played that month for them later he became a sportswriter and became sports. Atlantic City daily press and in the forties was a constant proponent of integration of Major League baseball before Jackie Robinson. You gotTA wonder if if white he just didn't sort of get his start they're playing alongside black players in nineteen eighteen. So yes so they almost went out of business and then there was the thing that saves a lot of businesses somebody with cash and influence and Jackson took into partners from New York City. One was John Connors. Who had been a base he. He ran the restaurants in in Brooklyn and then in Harlem. He was pretty popular in that regard but he was very popular as a successful. As a baseball IMPRESARIO. He had had semi pro black team in Brooklyn as early as nineteen o four. He was forced out of business by Business Apolo white white business opponent named net. Strong who sort of dominated the semi pro seeing New York City by tying up Based available baseball fields and charging people to use them so connor was put out of business and he was happy to jump at the opportunity the backpacks and he brought in a business partner even probably even more money than him again. Even Barron Wilkins. Who is one of the leading speakeasy Operators in Harlem and had some sporting some sporting interest he was a backer of Jack Johnson the fighter and interested in sports not as Hands on guy but somebody like put some money into it and enjoy it. So they bought into the background checks and rejuvenated the team and this is in fact when they started playing part time in. New York City because they were from New York City. They wanted the team to play in New York City. They wanted to be outside of the the grip of Nat Strong. I didn't WANNA be paying him. A feed us a ballpark and that was feel strong. Strong had no sway over ebbets field or the Polo grounds so they wound a bit ebbets field for several important home series in those early twenties so the team was rejuvenated. And there's still not. They're still league ball in the east. But as you pointed out you go nationally could start it out in the Mid West and nineteen twenty and back rex. Rube foster was the president. Very energetic came powerful president of the Negro Nationally and he authored eastern clubs. What were called associate memberships? You could be an associate member of his league. Which gave you the opportunity to schedule Games with his teams. Which of course we're potential moneymakers. It also allowed you to be exempt from his his league teams rating. Your rosters treating you like an like an independent team. And where Free Agency reigned among the players and siphoning off your players and of course you. You couldn't siphon off his player his league's players either but it was a it was an arrangement that was often used in the Negro Leagues and the backpack became the first associate member of the Negro National League in Nineteen Twenty. Which helped them a lot. Day then became. They stayed associates of The Negro National League and got so they were playing a lot of they were playing a lot more high class black teams and traveling to New York City more playing in the high level semi pro world wide world of Semi Pro Bowl in New York City. Things were things were going very well. And then in nineteen twenty three the eastern the primary eastern teams most most of whom were so were Negro nationally associates came to what was pretty. In retrospect seems like a pretty obvious conclusion that they should have their only so the eastern Colored League was founded stretching from New York City due to Baltimore it was pretty compact. You didn't have to pay the train expenses to go all the way to Detroit or Chicago to play Play the National League teams. You could play among yourselves. And then you could then you if you wanted to. You could take a barnstorming trip. West or Western teams would come and see you for barnstorming trip which is always profitable so the eastern Colored League was founded in nineteen twenty three and were charter. Members bringing us up to how they got into a league. Maybe you sort of touched on it. But why would they not have gone the net Negro National League route and foster? Maybe not sort of trying to. If you will expand from the Midwest to the East Coast given a handful of associates at this point I would imagine that foster might have looked at the founding of this eastern Color League almost as as an affront made he did a matter of fact as a matter of fact you looked at it very much as in the front and they didn't negotiations for a Negro World series. Which you would have thought would have been a sort of an automatic dragged on for years and didn't end I series didn't take place until nineteen twenty four a lot of the colored teams. We're very undercapitalized. Because they catered to ten the catered primarily to ten percent of the American population which tended be people who held income jobs and they're simply was not that simply was not the discretionary income to buy ballpark taken that they were among the whites and so far so so barnstorming was very important going going on a road for a week or two at a time and you know hitting hitting some cities and playing some Negro League opponents but playing all these little towns along the way you picking picking up money all the way. The travel to travel to the mid west costs were extensive. Ed Bolden who who ran the team called Hildale in Philadelphia before when the League when a Eastern League was founded wrote in in the Philadelphia. Tribune that basically I can. I can play. I can play a week here in Philadelphia where my players can walk to work and make more money than I would after putting them on a train to Chicago and paying their way to and from Chicago for a series. So it was. It was a matter primarily economics it would be you know taking taking a trip to the mid west from the east and playing a bunch of teams and coming back say take for too much or two weeks rather would be a good thing happened to go there. All the time was a bad thing financially a bad thing but but almost immediately right you've got Atlantic City in this eastern Color League essentially kind of you know arguably plan some maybe more major markets being in the east coast and stuff so before we sort of getting the giants a little bit more where it feels like there was almost a the. I'M GONNA call it an uneasy peace right but There was certainly some post-season collaboration as the years went on between the two leagues right. Yes the ambassadors went to work and First Negro World Series was played in nineteen twenty four between the eastern cluber league champion and the Negro nationally champion and they there was in a Negro World Series in twenty five twenty six and twenty seven. There may have been more but the economy Got Worse prior leading up to the Great Depression and Eastern Colored League went out of business in the middle of the nineteen twenty eight. Which of course ended that relationship. Of course the Negro National League was only a few years behind and doing the same thing so so there were there. Were Twenty four twenty five. There were four Negro World series between DC L. and an eighth in the National League and the Bax went. We're in two of them. Although they did manage to win either of them they they got better and better as time went on and they were really a good team by the mid twenties. Well we'll talk about that team a little bit so so. Give me a sense of some of these players. We haven't really mentioned some of their names yet. But there's some really intriguing Anna solid characters on this on this team and maybe a little bit of how how they were getting better. I mean back. Not How much did he care? Know about the doings of the team and door who was running all of the sort of onfield stuff. Where are these players coming from? Well you had Jack Tom Jackson was primary own primary owner and then he brought in He brought in Connor and Barron Wilkins from New York City. Who BASICALLY NEUTRALIZED JACKSON? They were big money. Guys and Jackson was. I mean he was connected with the team but he was not getting out of power that he had before they bear in Wilkins. And kinda well. Let's give credit to Connor. He was really the baseball man. He knew a lot of people he he brought John. Henry Lloyd to the team Pop Lloyd D Hall of Famer considered to be maybe the best black shortstop there ever was one of the best shortstops anywhere. There was Lloyd he brought Loyd to the team Lloyd became the manager became the star of the team. One of the stars of the team. Interestingly enough Lloyd was getting a little on in years when he came to the backpacks and his first managerial. Decisions was to shift himself to second base because shortstop was one of the was basically his successor as the best shortstop at the time. Dick Lundy who had been one of the original duval giants seventeen years old when he came up from Jacksonville. Nineteen sixteen and before many years were gone. He was regarded as you know the the up and coming young Infield Star and black baseball so Lloyd's switched himself to second base shortstop. So you've got now in all star up to up to middle situation. They're outfielder say they really. You know we like to say well. This team had so many hall of famers. Besides Lloyd and Ben Taylor who played for the team early on and then at the very end? He managed the team and was a part time player. Only two hall of famers they had but they had lots of guys in that tier below. Outfielder name Chaney White. Who's really overlooked? I think I don't know if he's hall of fame category. He doesn't get the credit he should. He was in center field for several years. Guy Named Arthur Henderson whose nickname was rats because allegedly. Because when he was a young man going to work. He opened his lunch pail and one of his workmates. Had put a rat in his lunch peel and the jumped out and scared him to death so for their after supposedly Arthur Henderson was rats Henderson but he was a real good pitcher and he pitched for them for throughout the twenties. had read greer. Who is a his career was kind of short but it was really outstanding Win while it lasted. He pitched the first were Negro World Series No hitter for the backpacks in nineteen twenty six. The team had one of their star players again. I wouldn't exactly say Oliver. Marcelle is is underrated. The people know.

"Fast. Casual what yes. That's that's wrong. I didn't know that this is where how we were going to enter into this conversation. Okay so let's go ahead and talk about the difference between fast casual and fast food. Let's defined some parameters so an and I will. I will make the distinction that five years ago when I tried all of those burgers. Yes five guys came out on top for me. Oh Wow so that is actually I agree with you. I do think there is like. It's there is some merit to try to come up with the platonic ideal of a burger of the American Burger. Yeah and you know. There are categories and filomena genus. All kinds of civil of ways that we could slice and dice that sucker. We're not GONNA do that. I know right now. That's a conversation for another podcast on another day but I am kind of excited to hear. The five guys came out on top. Yes so back in the day but at that time I got a lot of crap from the internet which is weird. Because you know the Internet's usually Komo's place lease exactly if you want to feel good about yourself. He's on the comments. And so apparently I was a communist but also economy. Yeah I don't know why they don't give them out for Free Forum. Look I don't I'M NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa dive into the Royal Miss. Out of the twitter's so there are a few distinguishing traits when we tried to think about what makes something fast food versus fast casual so On the fast food side it's Generally it's about ultra convenience right and when you think of ultra convenience you think of Open twenty four hours. That sort of thing. You also think of drive-thrus now that was one point where we said. Okay do fast. Casual restaurants have drive throughs. And you know when you think of does a Panara have drive through etc etc so that largely no largely in. Here's the thing we have to always say. We have to always qualify all of that. Because there's always some place that you could say hey Taco Bell Cantina has XYZ so so that was important to say. But I would say you know. It's about convenience I it's about price point. Yes because fast. Food is fast casual. It tends to be a lower price point agreed. It's about sort of. It's it's also a little bit of the health of the food and it gets a little bit more complicated. They're introducing these. You know impossible style things but generally speaking if you look at the ingredients in fast food it's like all of these chemical compounds because the food has to travel right however this is part of the challenge obviously with with a place like it out the reason that it is you know California centric is because of their insistence the emphasis on getting the ingredients for the lettuce and tomato and the all that stuff from certain purveyors local out of that so that they can deliver that consistency that they want. That's true so I and I would be counry. Factual counter examples for each of the categories these lines of demarcation. We're trying to set up here. But generally speaking you'd say ultra convenient. Ultra cheap less of an emphasis on all natural local ingredients there's a certain kind of Joie de Vivre. That's no way. That's the way you pronounce that but Apologies TO MME Bendtsen. My eighth grade French teacher but She's definitely listening. She's a huge house of cards fan. He has good taste. Yeah of course. Jimmy's used French teacher. And you know they have mascots for example like name a fast casual joint that a mascot. Yeah I you know. The funny thing is how this line has tended to blur and the funny slash curious slash interesting aspect to what you're describing right now is In some respects a commentary on wor. I'm older than you. But were sort of of a same kind of generation. It's different now. Like healthfulness is an important aspect at every fast. Food place near the calories are published. Yup and people are mindful of calories in some respect not universally. But there's you know it is information. It's a data point correct. Everybody is selling the freshness of their food. Now you're not do that Because you lose market share. Mcdonald's found this out yes and their competitors pounced on that sort of advantage you know. Wendy's being the the primary mover on this and you know the appeal to kids which is the mascot concept and why the the fast as very cleverly had the ball pit That also is an element of things that you will see it both fast food and fast casual now. Let the lay kit. Entrant is very well conceived thoughtful properly portioned in a single sized trae that makes it really easy for little folks to get there get in. Get her all this stuff. And and and get out I respect all of the Sort of attributes that you just described that you would use to try distinguish these distinguishing factors. The one word I haven't heard you say and I'm wondering if it's deliberate is fast will. Yeah I mean because there are some entrance in fast casual. That are just as fast as fast food. We'LL AAA right example. I mean you go up you go down the line and bullies arguably the original fast casual restaurant the place that wants to tell you all the ingredients and was proud of all that sorta stuff continues to be deservedly so it seems I mean. I had trouble with with tainted ingredients along the way. But that's part of tr- at trying to do everything in this the this above board way so I would say where it gets complicated is it just depends on the style of food right because some styles of food are just going to be fast but I mean she's Burger it is it depends on whether it's cooked the meat is. Is You know coming out. They have to form the patty. And that's what happens at shake shack and at five guys but McDonald's and Wendy's would have us believe there's a version of that happening now now at their at their spots. Yeah I mean well. Here's a here's I mean that brings up sort of an interesting thing so if fast food restaurants are kind of trying to evolve into fast casual like have more of a fast casual reputation because they want to attract the consumers that are mainly had to eating at fast casual restaurants. Can you think of a fast food restaurant restaurant that you would say fast food that launched in the last decade or fifteen years right? No that wasn't actually considered fast. Casual right yeah no. There's nobody in a weird way. Fast food is almost. It's like grandfathered in the point I just made about us being of a certain generation with a certain kind of Approach to market. That is now kind of passe. Exactly so and I and I recall I mean. I don't know about your upbringing but I ate a shit ton of fast food and Mike loaded. I my mom had problem. You know picking me up from school and we'd go to McDonalds so what my mom and when I yeah and like you know I was Gonna get to cheeseburger meal happy meal. May maybe you can only get one cheeseburger the meal and get an extra cheeseburger cholesterol issue as a kid but I doubt it I know I did but the It was more of like a dove bar related things during a Lotta those. That's your problem. I watched nine two now but the issue with that is that that was just totally fine. Now there's a certain amount of judgement around doing something like that. There's a certain class You get into some class issues around that where in these fast food restaurants are trying to say like well. You can order apples instead of French fries. You can get milk instead of the hi. C Orange which I used to crush the eighty ounces of that. Mcdonald's is the orange and you'd have like a sore throat from all the sugar. That plus a flare fish sandwich is one of the all-time great rip the very very underrated. The hi C orange plus flavor. I only ate that was on Fridays. Because we weren't allowed to have meat there. You go yeah that's right. We're inland right now. Yeah exactly sure we're GONNA stay stick to that tonight. I think that we are witnessing a changing of the guard when it comes to fast food as we know it is sort of this thing that is sort of you. Know like think about the drastic Park Mosquito. Or whatever in the amber that stuck in that time and anything that comes now always going to be mindful and is going to be more of the fast casual. I mean we get deep here on House of cards. Sometimes we try be thoughtful Michael Poland You know has done and the I don't know what what what's the correct way to describe who he is in in in the world. I mean he's an incredible writer. He's super thoughtful. Food has been his beat although now he's on drugs. Yeah I mean just food documentarian. Sort like a but a little setting aside. The correct way to to Dole out his accolades deserted the point that he made some time ago the resonated with me is like there was a moment from post war industrialization up to like the Eighties. Where the most important thing in the American diet was to produce calories cheaply as possible and the evolution since then is a price to the calories a hidden price to those calories in terms of the nutritional component And we've seen you know the the the effects of Consuming a whole bunch of Fast Food and Soda and processed bread products. And all that kind of stuff has price in inside of it. That has now seen the light of day. That hidden costs has been revealed. But we are now in an era where the confluence of information and The availability of data about the impacts of various foods on our health and you know The impact on kids of various things were just a lot smarter and it has had I think a helpful effect on the the the acquisition of food in a convenient way and also in an inexpensive way right. Yeah no absolutely and I think you. I started to see the foundation crack obviously with like super size me as fast food nation right. Yeah we're both of those kind of came out around like two thousand late nineties early two thousand and that's when you saw a pivot where these fast food places started to say. Okay wait will maybe. Everyone's noticing because there were being shamed exactly like people are noticing. Because you're being publicly shave and there's a dino a movie where a guy gets fatter and fatter on your food and like has a serious health episode has has to be potentially hospitalized. Exactly so yeah. That's not that's not going to give you a ton of A ton of great press but yeah so I think we started to see the evolution then and that actually happened to coincide with the Culinary Revolution in America. Right as more and more people became thoughtful about what they're eating and social media launched in top chef. And all of those sort of things. So you really.

Trump hired a Japanese chef to cook them meals. Mike but it's not like that's weird because other casinos had actually flown in tableware from accused favorite restaurants in Japan. What just go to pure one? Would you rich people just live so oh fucking different. It's just crazy level of like it's insane it's offensive a little bit it's a little bit unreal getting away. All into the casino worked media covered his gambling which is what trump wants. Listen The Wall Street Journal. Oh quote sipping tea.

"atlantic city" Discussed on Spectacular Failures

"In los amigos mexican restaurant and bar is a sliver of a place tucked between the monolithic gambling halls of caesar's bally's in atlantic city and it's tacos is our eight talisman of sorts. Yeah i think so yeah a few people like i had a couple of gamblers that used to have to eat here before they went. That's patch camelia owned los amigos for forty years and in that time she said more than a few superstitious high rollers swing through her spot for some baja fish tacos or karnataka's does before hitting the tables there <hes> host would bring them in and said every time he tear he's lucky to someone employed by casino to take care of the big gamblers who are also called wales and this one whale couldn't get enough of los amigos so the fellow told me he goes yeah win when i come here so i was like back she it's awesome. It really felt lucky so that was a big plus size ceo. Keep winning. Please this whale. His gambling spot of choice was trump taj. Mahal the now defunct casino previously owned by the forty fifth president of the united states donald j trump if high rollers are whales than the taj. Gosh mall was the most opulent over the top whale sanctuary in the world. When it opened in one thousand nine hundred it was the largest most expensive casino ever built with with its minarets and domes and life-size elephant statues the taj cost nearly a billion dollars and boasted gaming floor the size of three football fields the utterly fantastic trump taj mahal casino resort where every day is a holiday and every night is new year's eve so take a magic ride or the eighth. I wonder of the world that trump taj mahal casino resort in atlantic city new casino the eighth wonder of the world wonder the pyramid of giza thought about that pop superstar michael jackson and supermodel elle macphearson were on hand for the grand opening so was lifestyles of the rich and famous robin leach because you know why not at times mahal casino is the wonder of the world on that diet thing. The beloved glum ranked nine seventy five thousand fan dan. He's swept away but they didn't stop the casino. Take topping two million dollars for the day away from the throng. I asked donald bringing in michael was his ultimate from michael taj mahal. He's my friend. He's a tremendous talent and it's really my honor. It's <hes> it's a big day for me. Shout shoutout to robin leach for using trump card in an absolutely on ironic way in addition to its other superlatives taj was the most lucrative casino in the world hauling and hundreds of thousands of dollars a day at least for a while but then just a year after it opened atlantic city's most glittery diamond and the crown joel in trump's casino empire went bankrupt a year after that trump's to other new jersey casinos also filed for bankruptcy by the time the final dice were thrown at the taj gaj. Two thousand sixteen trump's casino operation had gone bankrupt six times trump entertainment resorts the holding company that owned trump's casinos gino's was the only public company trump ever ran and every year that trump was in charge lost money in spite of that it's c._e._o. Donald j trump pulled down seven-figure bonuses year after year. The story of trump entertainment resorts is a story with many things it's about the basic supply and demand the relationship nation ship between a slick developer and desperate city and the consequences of gambling with other people's money and livelihoods and losing. I'm lauren over and from american american public media and the carlson school of management at the university of minnesota. This is spectacular failures. The show that goes all in on failure even the lady luck isn't always on our carside. If you've ever been to an american beach you have probably felt the presence of of atlantic city in the form of salt water taffy that sticky coastal confection that can be found in every cianci shop selling seashell jewelry and t shirts that read life life is better in flip flops salt water taffy was invented in atlantic city in the late eighteen eighty. S legend has it that a. storm dumped ocean water on an early batch of the candy hence its name but more likely the treats and vendor was just really good at marketing and that's also the story of the queen of resorts herself atlantic city in its early days. Atlantic city was billed as a health resort. The idea was air. There would cure people of illnesses and i and i love the the references is that they promised that if you come to atlantic city that you'll get lots of ozone that's bryant simon. He's a history professor at temple university university and the author of the book boardwalk dreams atlantic city and the fate of urban america and i can tell you from a recent trip to jersey's most famous shore i i took in tons of ozone and now cure to the vapors by the early nineteen hundreds atlantic city had shed its health resort vibe and started attracting a new white middle-class middle-class who suddenly had leisure time thanks tweet changing american economy as a destination atlantic city offered affordable luxury for the masses and it was a place to dress surf and march and say look i have enough money to take a week off and dress up and do nothing and that quickly became the more important thing the thing that make atlantic city america's first great middle class resort disneyland before there was disneyland. The key feature was the boardwalk with a capital be legged the most expensive monopoly property the original four mile long wooden walkway as wide is a two lane highway in some places was finished in one thousand nine hundred sixteen ecksteen and it was one of the most important promenades of the day a place to see and be seen people on the boardwalk save their best clothes so when they walk down the boardwalk and they weren't to muir clothing they were meant to be ostentatious and over the top pants that were cre- three so sharply they could cut you in the middle of the summer. Women wearing cashmere sweaters with mink stole is not worrying about sweating adding they wanted you to notice them being stole and at the heart of that gray was this ride down the boardwalk in a rowing chair. The rolling chair was one of the most unique attractions early atlantic city and one of the most troubling so think of a two person chair made out of wicker and then give it wheels and a handle the back so it can be pushed. It's like rickshaw but there's no real transportation purpose. The people getting pushed along had no particular place to go and the job of rolling chair pusher her that was generally reserved for black matte. It was a fantasy for white immigrants who sometimes we're not included in the american story for jews particularly securely for italians for the irish to be fully made into americans and how do you become fully made into americans. He become white and in part of being wade is controlling black labor. I mean that is a story of america. This boardwalk novelty along with the elegant hotels and restaurants staff by black workers allowed white vacationers to live out their race and class role playing fantasies and this friction would permeate the city for decades to come simon jokes that atlantic city's heyday was when everything along the boardwalk was shiny and new leg almost one hundred years ago but at least from a population standpoint he's right the city topped out at six thousand year round residents in nineteen thirty around that time prohibition brought all kinds of narrative wells to town doing things things that near dwells do boozing booze halls flopping and flop-houses your garden variety hustling by were to the city had tidied itself up in pitched into the war effort housing convalescing soldiers in the city's grand jazz age hotels and it's still captured a place in the country's imagination again it alantic city we will walk in a dream will be deep teaches and that is the timeless voice of mr dick haymes but everything wasn't peaches graham for atlantic city. Those war were to progress the city ground to a halt. This is the place that lives on fumes for a long time business. Hold out in the nineteen fifties. It's passed the tate. There's not a lot investment. There's not much new housing being built so it's really one of these places michael american cities where the heyday is nine hundred twenty nine plus as the the country's black population became more upwardly mobile and began vacationing at the shore a lot of white people were treated to the burbs and the backyard pools therein you know near-standard grouse white flight story i would argue that race and racism kill atlantic city that middle class whites no longer wanted to vacation in places that were diverse and they went to seek places that create that exclusion and that's disneyland in.

"AM six forty eight is the Conway show. We have a very interesting guy on with us. Bruce diabetic. He he drive Divac. He owns the Atlantic City ocean resort. It is a a mammoth hotel. It's it's changed hands. I don't know six to a dozen times or so it regionally the original cost of this hotel was two point five billion two point four billion dollars. And it was sold a couple of times. And then the hotel was sold to Atlantic City ocean walk on January ninth of two thousand eighteen for two hundred billion dollars and renamed the ocean resort casino with reopening summer twenty eighteen this past summer, and this is interesting down on April. Second of this year. It was announced the resort will join Hyatt hotels as part of their unbranded unbound collection. Plus if you live in New Jersey. I think you can gamble online through the casino and BRUCE'S with us, Bruce. This is a this hotel has an a tremendous story behind it. And it was built for two point four billion. And you guys picked it up for a fraction of that. Is that true? Two point four five billion was the main facility. And now we own the central plant now which was one hundred and fifty seven million in about two hundred and fifty million in furniture fixtures and equipment, so roughly three billion dollars. You know, we paid two hundred million four put another two hundred million into getting an open and operating it, and what's a beautiful place. And everyone knows it is the big glass casino in Atlantic City. It's spectacular. Yes, sir. It is. It's a beautiful piece of of architecture for sure now. Now, let's go back to you know, the reason you're on with us because of how huge heart and you have opened up your casino. Two people got caught up in this hurricane Florence and offered free rooms is that correct? That's correct. I early Wednesday morning. I made the decision that, you know. I watched the Weather Channel, I watch CNN. I don't sleep much at night. And and I just felt like I had been in situations before where where I could use some help my family could use some help. And so I reached out, and I made it very clear, and a wonderful fellow through the Associated Press made it very clear to people in that region of the United States that if anybody wants to leave that area, and they needed help and assistance that they could come and stay with us at ocean resort casino or accommodations would be free. And so, hey, we had an overwhelming response. It was amazing because I met I met families morning and last night as one family I spoke to follow this morning. He gave me a hug fifteen family members that he brought smoke. I know it's. Fifteen and he took four rooms. And he said, I have no idea what I would have done. And I said, well, I said, listen, it's absolutely pleasure. And I've made it very clear to the the the media outlets. The news outlet sort of reached out to us. You know, it's not about us. It's not about ocean. It's about doing the right thing about the hurricane evacuees. And we were very very happy to help. Well, that goes a long way when people are in trouble, either, financially or weather wise. I remember in Houston, there was know horrible, hurricane Houston. Yeah. Hurricane harvey. You're right. But there was a guy who owned a furniture store, and he let he gave away. He he let people sleep in his mattress store, and he let them use. His trucks is thirty eight trucks to move furniture round from out of these houses that are in danger for free, and he also gave away three hundred thousand dollars for the free furniture.

And that's I know that's the commitment. I've made to Atlantic City at sixty three years old, you know, to to to make the decision. Hey, this is what I wanna do. But everybody went along with being I'm very happy that I did that because it's a wonderful smaller community, and and the people remarkable and it's coming back. It's creating a wonderful foundation of itself in front of my eyes. I love Atlantic City. My first experience with Atlantic City, we flew to Manhattan, we're gonna stay in Manhattan for four days, and then Atlantic City for three days, and I got up with my my buddies, and we're gonna check out of the hotel and we dragged our luggage. Four thirty blocks to go get the bus goes to Atlantic City. Right. So we get on the bus and that bus make stop after stop and stopped right in front of the hotel that we're staying in thirty blocks that we could have just picked it up there.

I've I've seen that hotel before every every room in that hotel has a spectacular view of the coast does the tower sits perpendicular to the ocean, right, and it absolutely does. You're right. Did you guys get hit by the hurricane that came through their couple years ago? So when sandy came through had nothing to do with the property, but no sandy did, you know, billions of dollars of damage in and around Atlantic City, New jersey, and and it was a horrific event for people. It's interesting you bring that up the property. There was no damage was a little bit of water and one of the main entrances down below but the property was stood the hurricane remarkably. Well, but it's interesting that so many people remember sandy, and when I made the decision to do this. And so many of our team members, they said, you know, Bruce, when the when the hotel is full, you know, we have rooms on our house, but people convinced come stay in our house because remember five years ago six years ago, what it was like when hurricane sandy.

"In Atlantic City, Ron with Mark. George. Hi, mark. Well, I have a unique perspective on on President Trump being crew Atlantic City and having worked for him and with them. But the Scarborough thing is a specific reason that I called it, of course, now everything relates to Trump Trump world today in the news cycles is everything does about Trump, which is a political junkie for me. It's fantastic coming out of entertainment that it's been for the past couple of years. In addition to the fact that I really love what the turn these doing for America today. I feel fantastic. With that being said, we here in Atlantic City or used to him in a way that the rest of the nation apparently is not a lot of what is going on in the way that he handles things. Seen it in real action. Okay is real time. You know over a several year period when he actually ended up having at one time, I think four casinos. And then there was the battles the battles. Well, he had with Steve Wynn. You know? So so our experience with him is. You know, somewhat more than what the rest of America the world has. So we've seen him in action for quite some time. Now with that being said what you love the car. You hate the guy which I might add in Atlantic City. He was hated and why year because of a lot of things that took place within his bankruptcies and so on so a lot of people around here did not like him. Okay. How whatever I can tell you right now. The tide has turned beyond one hundred eighty degrees. Okay. Asking you to appreciate the fact that it was a regular thing. Always for years on the radio here in Atlantic City on talk radio. Right. So so we we understand him in a way that may be most of the nation and most of the world doesn't when it comes to the foibles when it comes to the women in addition to that the whatever I mean, I was limousine driver for a while. I mean, I've done a lot. He's a cabdriver worked in the casino industry. Worked in seven of the casinos from the beginning. Okay. What do you know about him? Then what what are you know, about this man is different than anything? Ever. I've seen in the business world. He's twenty four seven person number one. Okay. I mean, you could think that the man never curse. Of course. He's got right. But he never stops. Never ever gives up. He never gives in. He's never wrong. And unfortunately or fortunately, most of the time. He's right. All right. So these are things that we're used to with him we've dealt with now. You get a guy like we got. We have a lot of calls. Yeah. Get to your point on scammer Scarborough. He's a low life and thinks this day. Did he's a conservative swear to God. I used to go. All that steady and regular basis. He is a conservative. He came in on the Republican Gingrich, whatever he's one of the guys from the whatever the whatever back in the one we took over congress back, then he's a fantastic conservative Republicans. But Donald Trump is that it added that and he's still a conservative to demand is sick. Okay. That's Scarborough catcher Jorge just because we have to move on. Interesting. He did come in. And the Gingrich wave that makes sense to me to let's go to Chris in Detroit. Chris you're on with Mark. How you doing tonight? Meal. You are you commenting on my weight. It's just one person here. Not guys. I'm just giving you. I'm giving you a hard time. It's Mark is they're filling in for the guys. Now, they're not a worry at all. I found it real interesting. I know completely mind blowing steam that tweet for Scarborough today, I was actually shocked and the reason for that is not because you know, I thought he was Republican or conservative values that anyone can. The record and say that it's definitely not the case. You know, he does hype behind, you know, the Republican party from time to time when he. Conveniently however been a guy who at least on the surface in the past. He's been able to okay. A lot of things on the on a laugh. The democrat party and make some criticism of you know, what they're doing and how they're getting things wrong. And what I found credibly poetic was back in. I think this is the day after the point sixteen election. He went on a rant on his. About how all of these journalists and the times and the pollsters. The all turn a blind eye average, everyday Americans. And you know, how we said that that's a teams, and you know. Yep. Is that you know. Here's different and insanity. Their tones of agree with you. And you take into consideration only showed that he is not someone practices. What he preaches because what he did today was just revert to. You know day and this moment of morning. You know, a political talking point. And I just couldn't believe it. But you know, what I should. The colder before this has really interesting things to say, and you know that. Molly. You're coming in and out. There's some echo or something. I don't know if it's an echo there. But I got your idea. And yeah, it was a disaster for a lot of people what he said and the meaning nine eleven let me know what you think eight six six ninety redeye.
