"blue mountain" Discussed on WTMJ 620

"Afternoon news, Eric in for John, John, Mark here is back tomorrow. So this week one of the storylines we're going to see. Especially tomorrow is Theo expansion of a three mile stretch of I 94 From the Marquette to the zoo interchange. This goes between the cemeteries, though by the state, and we've we've talked about this stretch of road before. And whether or not it needs to be updated, redone, renovated the whole the whole nine yards, whether it should be touched or not, And should it cost a billion dollars? So there's a lot going on here. The City Council will discuss this tomorrow as well as to whether or not they want the D O T involved in this little stretch of interstate joining us now in studio because I know he's got some thoughts on this is Dr Ken Harris, a retired lieutenant with the Milwaukee Police Department also chairs the Justice in public policy program at Concordia University. And he's one of our new teammates cross the hall. I won. I won seven the truth. All right, Dr. Harris. I know that you're not a fan per se of redoing the interstate in this stretch. Why's that? Well, I'm a fan. It's just that Who do you talk to? Before you do it? Okay, So I've gone through some of the some of the inputs right? The opportunities that they had, they tend to always talk to Committees, government Organization and not people. People that are going to have to take 45%. Of all that traffic into their neighborhoods along national and Wisconsin. So why are they waiting till then? So the billion dollar price tag That's a huge point of contention. Obviously, with it being so high, is there a way to do this without the price tag being so great? Would assume there is but You've waited so long, and what they've been talking about this for almost a decade stalled seven years. I think there hasn't been a year that they talked about doing that stretch. And yet they never did it. And so you can't blame the locker administration. You can't blame. Doyle. It meant like who do Who do you blame? And so at some point it the cost got so high, But now we're gonna put out all these residents. Well, so then the question is it. Is it fair to say well? You know what? When you buy a house or when you pick someplace to live, you have to pay attention to some of the conditions in the environment in that area, So if you live near an interstate, eh? You got to be mindful of the fact that maybe they're going to put up a wall or maybe they're gonna want to stretch that over a little bit. Or maybe it might be louder during certain times of the day. I think if I paid taxes than the government ought to let me know in a significant amount of time before that, Hey, By the way, two minute domain is going to pop up perfect example. My wife and I were about to buy a house. We wanted to live along that area around Blue Mountain. I just happened to check. The city development site, and they're itwas. Oh, by the way, we're gonna be moving. So I kept wondering why are all these houses for sale, But what it was is that they knew once it's sold. If they wanted to expand the highway. I'm in the domain. So I would have on the house for like, Maybe, but a couple months. Your research? Yeah. Some council members say that traffic patterns have changed since the lad the project was approved last. Do you think a new study needs to be done on this? I think the new study needs to be done there waiting until the 23rd. I'm sorry. 23 2023 24. So we've got enough time to talk to people. I'm concerned about traffic school Busses people that normally take time to go to work. Wait on the bus, right. It's like we're doing it backwards instead of finding out how that will affect the people that live there. We've got information and studies that talk about people that travel to U W M. Now, no offense, But why would I care? Well, my neighborhood is torn up with 34 times the traffic So see, that's interesting, too, because I keep thinking about just the interstate itself. I don't know how you fix that stretch. I mean, they've talked about this double decker idea, and what that would mean. I know. Residents have been unhappy with that idea, which I totally get. Um, but I don't know how you fix that area and make it safe per se. And then go to four lanes like they're talking about, like it just doesn't even seem feasible with the fact that you have these two cemeteries so close together right there. Well, they removed the cemetery piece. They've removed the double decker piece. So now we have to look at It's going to take 3 to 4 years to expand. Yeah. So what do I do for two years? Yeah. Do I say that hit you? 3 to 4. Years of construction? That's a lot in both directions. Yeah. Where do I go? So how do you think this plays out? I think I'm going to complain. And, uh, bang a drum until until deal. T actually talks to the people that live there. You know how it will affect and and of course, it will affect business. That's important. Sure, but the fact that will affect business and record we're going to see. Okay, So how do I get to the store on $27 constantly win the track because it out through time? How do I send my Children to school? Go pick up something. It's going to disrupt an entire neighborhood. Dr. Ken here is you can hear him. 4 to 6 son 117 the truth. I have a feeling you're team this one up today. Oh, yes. Absolutely. Thank you, sir. Don't be a stranger touching soon 3 39. Let's face it with things start to return.

Im a travel blogger. How do I pivot my business during COVID?

"The travel industry has taken a major hit because of covid nineteen and today's listener. Today's qna wednesday question from jim is spot on. How do you pivot. How do you change how to make something happen. When you took such a blow. I recognize the truth of the matter. The truth of the matter is because of covid. people can't travel or at least depending on the country. You're on the can't travel easily or safely. This is a suction we all say to ourselves. But it's partly true. Can't travel maybe internationally but people can do some traveling like a road trip even if you're in a country like australia where they really are super super strict when it comes to the covert restrictions where the close the borders between states like. You can't leave the for example. New south wales which is a stash rilya when there are a few cases pop up. You know the borders get close but you can travel within new south wales. So let's just define the problem. You can't travel internationally. travel blogger. the world's your choice ter- and there's so much material out there but this is an opportunity for you to create a different stream of income a different Chapter in your business career. Local travel road trips exploring. What's in your backyard. And of course you could start with your own local area but just because you can't go somewhere. Let's say for example. You can't go to australia and Help people in their local area to do some local travel you can curate some content curate. Some ideas from other videos other blogs and serve your audience for example in new south wales in australia. You can go to beaches. You can go to the blue mountains. You can go skiing. In the winter. In kosciusko mountain you can go to byron bay which is scored like a yoga hippie. Beachie vibe you can go. There's so many options within the state and people are hungry for break right so this is another option. Just kind of pivoting your business. Creating maybe books guys videos courses live. Coaching calls summits events where you help people or guide them to travel. Locally is easy for us to focus on problems and not think about. What can i do rather than i can't do. So yes you can't travel internationally but you can locally or you can help people travel locally another thing that comes to mind when it comes to travel blogging. It's like hey. I usually do. Exotic locations like how to go to vietnam for two weeks under three thousand dollars or backpacking around europe. And these are not really options anymore for your target audience. Yes they can't travel now but any of these trips will require planning and planning can be done anywhere. For example nicole took eight weeks and did a bit of traveling in europe and that trip took about nine months. The plan we did with some friends of ours. Jason and carolina zuck with a lot of fun. But there's a lot of coordination especially you want to many countries the different modes of transport. Those flying this train. There's renting cars there's accommodations their sites. They wanna see in each city. There's downtime there's beaches there You wanna shop so it takes time to plan a trip like that and for most people. They're not going to go on a trip. Like i gotta go to europe every day or go to vietnam every day or go to costa rica so they want to make the most and planning is a part of that and in my opinion planning is a big part of the fun of going on a big epic journey. A big trip is a travel blogger. You can really hone in on the planning part the preparation part of actual travel. And that's from the bag of tricks. Of rick steves He really focuses on the planning. You can do the same and you can even do A little bit of a niche thing like budget or luxury and you can even just down a little bit and either do luxury travel or budget travel or to travel in a big group that type of thing and this is actually a good time to do it because you know people are starting to see. Hey maybe we are on the other side of cova. The vaccine is how maybe in six seven nine months. It's possible to travel somewhere. Maybe in a year and that's just enough time to get the planning going to have everything sorted out so when you can't travel it's all planned out. You're all set. You're all excited. You're all packed and you're ready to go so planning is a big part of that so maybe spend some time focusing on that on your block. What to pack Luggage what to buy beforehand. What about travel insurance. These are all ways for you to really have revenue streams where you can do amazon associates and get commissioned when you recommend certain products items. I always say when it's downtime in your business for example in the software world and the bbc world december january notorious for being slow. So when it's slow when you're having a downtime it's a great time for you invest in content. So if right now things are a little slow in your travel blog. This a chance for you to really invest the time in building a youtube channel in writing a book on your travels and why you should travel or where you should travel to travel guides because it's going to take some time for you to create this content publish it put on the world market and by time it's all set and done people will start thinking about traveling again and it's an asset that you can use forever. It's not like you write a book and you only can sell it tomorrow. You could sell it for years to come. and of course it's trout guide. You can use as a basis to sir. Updating it year after year the other day our team at women ninja were running. Some webinars get. We like to use their own software and one of our team members. Cj she sharing some photos from our last Team retreat in bali and we were reminiscent with these photos. And who's just reminding is a how much of a great time we had on that trip. I thought to myself how many people take all these photos when the epic trips and they never look at them they never reminisce. They never really looked at it. And say wow what a great time. Those are ray positive feelings and more people should do that to remember the good times. remember the travels. So that's something you can lead that something that you can create for your community a weekly webinar where somebody can share their last trip. Share the photos share what they learn. Share their favorite memories. Everybody in the webinar can experience that plays virtually and get really excited about when they're going to go and see that place and of course if they're doing the sharing gives them a chance to rekindle their love for travel.

She had the funeral yesterday and He was promoted. She's the only one was the anyone could go. So it's an it's pretty upsetting for you. Come here today food or or to see you came here today to say she doesn't take a lot but she she takes for herself and her daughter and grandkids but the food enes charity gives away is supplied by a bigger operation and that operation. And the guy who leads it have been knocked sideways by Corona virus to? Hi Hey going. Jeff Thomson from ABC looking for. Matteo's GonNa meet him here. I'm standing outside. Matty's church in the industrial area if the whist and Sydney suburb of kings he and I go back a ways. I met him seven years ago in the open air. Carpark kings would train station and I was reporting a story for food corners. People out of this is where you make them and they will possibly see what's going on and you get to share with them. What's going on pot? Pasta part maitre d' the Free L. Frisco Ristorante he's energy and enthusiasm were infectious. I'm Kim to see how he's going now. Did Jesus thank? You haven't looked still sprightly young for life as You. You really good. Corona virus has killed the car parked in his for now when along the delivering Hartford Street. It's hampers its food deliveries partnering with Different Groups. Partnering With School Teachers. That are just coming and picking up food with STUDENTS PARTNERING WITH OTHER CHURCHES. Who and other community groups who come and pick up so still distributions. I met a food but just in a different way but still doing it but the natives massively in just while the need is Marty's got fewer people to help support his massive logistical load before the virus came. He had thirty to forty volunteers a week along with sixty people working for the dull on any given day now. They've been told to stay home. We've got probably about six or seven that are running. The food solution sought where we would have thirty to forty there on any given die running that sort of it. So it's tough. It's tough on the date for Matty. The motivating factor has always been helping people in need while asking nothing in return. Something I now realize he shares with Ian Bodily of CATOON NBA incomes and every Wednesday loads up with a truckload of food off he goes to contain. Brin says he's community he's never done it for the purpose of trying to get people into the faith. It's never been about trying to proselytize. It's not being a bad. Highlights fill the seats on Sundays. He's had a real heart just to love his community mighty knows more than most about Cova Dine tain because he's just gotten over it. He and his wife cooled it on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship back in March. I'm speaking to him on his third day. Out of self-isolation. They both okay. Now Marty's case was mild and he's worried that the some vulnerable people in Sydney's western suburbs the lockdown restrictions be worse than the disease on this side of it we dealing with the most vulnerable and broken. I think the ongoing flow on effect can be really bad and I think suicide is my number one I think there's a lot of people that are GONNA to lose their incomes. Lose businesses potential lose their family connections and a lot of people lose their jobs. They then become harmless because they just they only one paycheck away from paying the rent and all this is going to affect people in a ruby way. I think the government stimulus was doing what they can Commend them for that. But I just think we think we might have seen this monster as far bigger than what it actually walls and I think we probably responded a little bit too quickly in a little bit too drastically and I think that's what we're seeing now. As long as the monster remains undefeated the dislocation of social distancing will continue to challenge charities like Pasta Mighty Beckett's and the kindred spirit he found impasse to end badly catoon NBA. We had a lot of pastas who comes through and they want to do what we're doing You know people necessarily coming in on Sunday do it. For that reason you got the room reason. The idea is meant to be you as a church. Kelaniya they've incomes and he goes on care that I come to church. I just WANNA connection helping. And he's such an amazing job between them. The two pastors are making a difference. One bag of free groceries at a time whether to worry too much about the expense of providing fresh food so forth so yeah just just makes things a little better. And that's because their motto is making things pets out that report from Jeff Thompson. It's Sunday extra..

"Today's warrior was known as the mother of all Jamaicans. She led the maroons a community of formerly enslaved Africans in Jamaica to victory against their British occupiers. Let's talk about clean. Nanny Queen Nanny was born around sixteen eighty six in the country now known as Ghana to the Ashanti tribe. We assume today that nanny and her family were later. Brought to Jamaica slaves but in truth. There's no historical record of how she got to Jamaica. Oral history holds that clean. Nanny arrived as a free woman. Was never enslaved. The we have no way of knowing for sure by seventeen twenty nanny and a man who may have been her biological brother settled in the Blue Mountains in a strategic area that appeared adequately defensible against potential threats like the British there. The founded a village which later became known as nanny town escaped and freed. Slaves flocked there where they found a welcoming home and vibrant community over the course of a decade. The British tried to capture nanny town multiple times even when they succeeded in doing so their troops couldn't hold onto the village. Nanny had taught her own army a variety of extremely effective guerrilla tactics and advanced forms of camouflage that overwhelmed the British nanny also pioneered a long range communication system. She used a special cowher an instrument that allowed the different Maroon communities to communicate with each other over long distances warning of impending attacks and providing a means of coordination in seventeen thirty nine the British governor of Jamaica finally signed a treaty with nanny and the Maroons to end the first Maroon war which lasted over a decade and depleted resources on both sides in exchange for a ceasefire. The maroons received over five hundred acres allocated to them by the British on which they built a new nanny town besides being their military and political leader. Nanny was also seen as spiritual leader of the maroons due to her status as a master practitioner of OB A- opium is an Afro Jamaican religion that focuses on spirits and mysticism. Nanny used her knowledge of Ob to serve as a spiritual guide and healer for the COMMUNITY OVER THIRTY YEARS. Nanny was credited with freeing more than a thousand slaves. She also helped the former slaves adapt to their new lives in the Maroon. Community Queen Nanny is still remembered today as the brilliant spiritual and military leader of the MAROONS. She became in her lifetime and after a symbol of unity and strength for her people. In one thousand nine hundred. Seventy six Jamaica declared nanny national hero. She's the first woman to be given that honour

A Father's Story with KJ Carson, March of Dimes Ambassador

"K J Carson here. He's an ambassador with the march of dimes. And he has an amazing story that he's going to share with us and he has a lot of information about the march of dimes. I'm really excited to learn because I did not know how much they were helping out women and babies and families so it's really cool. The work that they are doing in Cagey got to experience it firsthand. So thank you so much for being here. Oh thank you so much for having me I guess where the beginning starts. Maybe Two days before our daughter was born and My wife was complaining of tiredness and so forth and we were really fortunate because The situation that we had for her healthcare included included a midwife and so that midwife had given us a card where if something had didn't seem right within a let's just call it a clockwise our someone from the midwife team get back to you so I said Okay. Well once we get back to our home which was about ninety minutes away Let me know how you feel. Maybe your medicine melted my wife's medicine just run out and so I thought okay maybe the worst. You'll need a refill To to kind of your because your body was depending on this medicine for your morning. Sickness so My wife wakes up the next day. And she's like I can't see virtually at all. Can you call the number? It's all like okay. Wow I've never known it to be this. So hit the pause button on that part of the story to tell from the father's perspective and I think every father should probably map out a route couple of them to get to the hospital and the time we're in the Washington DC AREA. If you knew how just absolutely ridiculous traffic is in the DC area. A hat and done this yet. Yeah so after calling the midwife They called back within about twenty five thirty minutes. It's a come into the hospital where okay absolutely. This is what I'm thinking. We'll get prescription for medication and So forth so I'll pause that part before we get to the hospital to say that my wife has been the epitome of healthy eating Not over indulging Had always been on. Medications has never been a smoker of any kind. I can't even get her to drink even the sweetest wine so she she clearly observes just virtually all the tenants of what a healthy mom should be But then when we got to the hospital It just seemed like we were there a little bit longer than expected and it turns out that my wife ended up with a syndrome called help It's an acronym acronym H E L P One way more people would know about is pre ECLAMPSIA but it's a severe case of P pre ECLAMPSIA and so my wife's blood pressure shot through the roof in the high to hundreds was the top number and we were just told. We're GONNA take the we have to take the baby today. And so my wife was only twenty nine weeks pregnant at the time and so our daughter was born two pounds. One ounces of two pounds one ounce And was in the nick you for one hundred and fourteen days She had a category four brain bleed and born with low scale cerebral palsy My wife did not have a chance to hold her her daughter for about four days because of the level of magnesium if I'm correct That was in her system and I was able to see my daughter because of the time that she was born. And because the visitation hours in the Nick. You which we're Kinda split in two times Were about to start so I was able to see her briefly for a little bit but our daughter Sarah was make you four hundred and fourteen days and it was just very tough to touch our daughter through a glass partition where book plexiglass. You know. Just giving her to reach our thumb. Grab our thumb or grab our finger But what was really fascinating about being in the nick? You were the other families in. How kind of Emeka is kind of this bubble of life where It doesn't matter what your walk is. What your beliefs are what your status is. Everybody's there for the same reason they're baby can't go home right away and so it kind of becomes a a small dependency in a way because you look forward to seeing the other families even though you're hoping just like everybody else that they can go home today with their child and so the march of dimes Was there for US When Sarah was in she's now eat When Sarah was moved from one hospital next to the Pentagon Over into an area of Fairfax Virginia The march of dimes had had a kind of like a thing for families where you can stop by. Wasn't anything mandatory. It was just the way to let someone know or let you know that. Someone's there if you had any questions that you didn't feel like you could ask a doctor or or or one of the nurse practitioners or one of the nurses that are in there Let's just say they dealt with the mental health side of it. If the Niki was the physical the march of dimes was there to help address. Some of the mental. And I know for my wife who could speak better about this but I know that it was something as simple as providing my wife a journal because as a husband and Kind of jokey way husbands are just notoriously known for like are you okay are you okay are you okay are you okay? And it's like I'm not okay anymore because you keep asking me but from a serious standpoint I just didn't know which avenue to walk down In terms of trying to get that communication with my wife of trying to understand why our child wasn't home And during that time when our daughter was in the hospital Literally inactive guide. A freak of nature happened where there was an earthquake that hit the east coast and it was like a six point. Oh and I happened to be over the hospital trying to let my wife know like hey look. Don't get out here. We don't know how bad things are. Even though nothing bad happened at the hospital but it was like okay. There's an earthquake. Are you okay at home? I'm wanting I'm going into the hospital as people are coming out and so So many of those different things that were going on that time while daughter was in the nick you The march of dimes able to provide even something as simple as a diary To my wife for her to be able to get her expressions in her thoughts out. You know again Probably one of the things that helped a lot and what I've learned from the situation is you know. Sometimes the foods that you put into your body can can exert exacerbate some of the stresses that are going on that. You're never really prepared for so. I really think that one of the blessings and everything that was going on was that my wife had already had kind of a a conscious thought of what she was putting into her body or not over stacking the foods into your body which you know I I would have no problem that they were. I knew there was one time she was like I'm craving mashed potatoes from KFC. And I WANNA Taco from Taco Bell and I was not going ask. Do you wanna eat this right now and it was just like okay. I'll be back in ten fifteen minutes. Is that enough time? It's just say also get one of those Green Mountain dews okay or the Light Blue Mountain dews. I'm like okay. You're really in his own but it wasn't an everyday thing and I think because that wasn't an everyday thing It allowed some of the mental to be able to permeate and be able to translate to the paper for her For me And I would recommend to any husband or father who's going through the same thing Try and find some things that you know may bring smiles to others During your free time I happened to start donating food to a food bank at that time. In fact that's exactly where I was around the corner From the hospital Earthquake hit and so But it it gave me a a sense of being appreciative. In spite of the things that are currently happening With me at that time. We're with our family at that time.

Mosquito-Killing Fungus

"One down endless numbers to go. You know there's been a lot of research lately about how we can get rid of malaria carrying mosquito populations walk. One way might be to use a transgenic fungus. There's a certain fungus found in the wild that already infects and kills insects but a team of researchers made it a whole a whole lot more deadly they genetically modified it to produce a toxin derived from the Venom of the Australian Blue Mountains funnel web spider to to test whether it could decrease mosquito populations researchers constructed a structure in Burkina Faso that contain chambers with huts plants pools and food food. They hung a piece of black cloth soaked in sesame oil inside a hut in each of three chambers one sheet had oil mixed with the transgenic fungus one had oil mixed with naturally occurring fungus and one with just oil then scientists released thousand male mosquitoes and five hundred female email mosquitoes into a chamber after forty five days the population in the chamber with this transgenic fungus went down to just thirteen mosquitoes ddos in the chamber with naturally occurring fungus it went down to four hundred fifty five and in the one with plain oil to thirteen hundred ninety six the female mosquitoes infected with the fungus also laid far fewer eggs than normal. It was important to the scientists to use materials like cotton and sesame oil that are relatively inexpensive accessible so regular people can implement the technique if the fungus becomes affordable and accessible as well our mall all four that idea this moment science comes from Indiana University.

"Okay. All right. Tequila worm. That's better. Yeah. I every from Sydney I talked to was there complained about it. Everyone was no one was happy. No one I talked to was like, this is great and no one thinks that it doesn't affect the city. Everyone is like it is triangle ING. And I think like any any of these attempts that have been made in municipalities throughout history, creativity, actually, what's the original intent? So people are day drinking, so we didn't actually cut down on the drinking. What's we just moved it? It's also like it all depends on what came before. So like Sydney had a great nightlife Sydney was known for it. So now people are like, well, shit that's been taken away from us. But you look at like a city like Boston, for example, where when they like kept bars, open half an hour earlier like two thirty instead of two, it was like caused for huge celebration. Right? So it's all relative as well. And I will say that if you go to a suburb like Newtown, which isn't that far from where you will be anyway, in Sydney, the local laws don't apply there. So if you really really are craving that really late night drink there. There are places you can go. That's not gonna require like an hour, long taxi ride, like Newtown is probably the these IOUs place access and the place where most active is happening. But yeah, CD not late night. That's the point I said Newport before I met Newtonian totally. Is there Uber is their lift. Uber is a great way to get around Sydney, actually. Okay. All right. If you're doing the metros. Good buses are good. It's an easy said he'd and walking is it's such a walkable city. Great when you're in the center of it. Okay, thanks, you guys. That was terrific. I feel like we really got anybody wanna take parting shots. Any last words? I don't know. I feel like you talk about Sydney, don't mention what's outside, like you said the people are going to send you to the Blue Mountains. That's fine for like an afternoon. I would say like hunter, wind valley. If you're into wine drink a lot of Sharon and mullebeck or pretty beach house central coast or all the way up to Byron bay get out of the city you. That's your second. The first. Four days this day. This is your day five day six. And then the the next week can be spent smell laid perk, whatever it has many. Yep. Also oranges the up and coming one region that's in New South Wales. So if you don't wanna do hunter valley do orange, which really cool a lot about an McCain winemakers that are there really, really easy to access and the alternative to Byron bay is this place called Jervis bay. Now down the south lot of like Australia VO is going down there. So if you don't do the Viron bay, which is super cool, but a little bit saturated. Jervis bay, beautiful white sand beaches down there too. But no, Thor Notre. Wow. No, maybe not yet said, what about you parting shot? I think we've covered a yacht. Rental yacht for. I mean, I do think you're going to get on the water. Yeah, as mine. I think it was the best day I spent in Sydney was spent in the harbor, you know, and you can take a boat windsurf things like that like it. Can you actually, there's there's places. Yeah, I think that's more. I don't know if you could do that in the Harbour. I think I might have seen a couple of jetskis or something, but this was like you rent a boat with some friends. You have drinks onboard sand. You can sail about you go up to some places where they're literally like tiny abandoned beaches within the harbour itself jump in, you can swim, you can..
