"More information, Please go to Minnesota Military radio. Com. So I said at the opening, we're gonna talk to the American Legion Department, Minnesota about some veteran related legislation. And joining me now to talk about that is Bob Hart, who was the department legislative chairman for the American Legion here in Minnesota. And he's and he's a Marine. So Bob Welcome to Minnesota Military radio. Thank you. I'm glad to be here. Have understand. You served back about my time. You're a Vietnam era marine, and you had some pretty good duties and rain car. Did I was in. I went that turned 21 in boot Camp and M C R D San Diego And they made the decision start withdrawing Marines from Vietnam. So I had an intelligence billet. But I ended up in Quantico, Virginia headquarters Battalion for a while and then was later transferred to a, um, helicopter squadron. Hmm. To six tree, which is Ta Dee from Cherry point because there simply wasn't enough room to bring everything home, So I had a mixed a mix of opportunities in the Two years and I was born And Bob. How many years after you got out of the Marine Corps, does it take for you to join the American Legion? You know, it's amazing. It took me many years. I didn't join the American Legion till I was 50 years old and just happened to get a mailing from national and my legion post points. 48. Still water was just a few blocks, actually from my home, and I thought some gun I've never even been there. So I stopped in and found a whole bunch of guys. My age, likable group said. I need to be part of this. Involved here in Minnesota. We've got a kind of a unique organization. All the veterans Nine Veterans Service organizations combined in what's called the Commander's Task force, and one of the big things they do every year is theirs. They come up with legislative priorities to take over to the Capitol. And in Dr elected officials about and and you've been involved in that for a while. I have. I've been involved in in the Legislative Committee Department for about 10 years and the chairman on and off for about, I guess, about seven. Well, it's a lot of good activity, and one of the things that happens there is you take the combined membership totals of all of those organizations, American Legion v. F W. De v, Amvets, Marine, Corley and so forth. And when you go over and talk to our elected officials, they know that you're representing a lot of folks and Bob this winner. There's been a bunch of special sessions and then every space special session, they said. The legislators said they were gonna work on something called the Veterans Restorative Justice Act. They just haven't had time with the pandemic to get it. Done that Z. Hi. I think on your list your to do list And could you quickly just tell us about that? Yes, Uh, the first place the Restorative Justice Act. There's some misunderstanding about how this uh how this works the it's officially called the Military Veterans Offenders. Restorative Justice Act sponsored currently buys on Senate file 116 by Chamberlain and House FILE BEISTE of House files. Where 78, but basically it's an extension of the veteran course. We already have veteran's courts now and they're very effective. But what what the sadness that actually allows us for any judge to use the same standards set of Veterans Court would use in? Um uh, looking at it and lower level offenders using up for serious crimes in lower level offenders. The way they have service connected issues that might have have have something to do with their with their With their crime that there's gold in the treatment instead of incarceration. So that's really a point of it, and they They believe that that the advocates believe the dense bill is in line with other states. Criminal justice statutes that empowered judges to make it make the best choices basically boils down to trust the judges. So it's what it's not. And this is important. It's not a get out of jail free card, then instead of going to correct correctional facilities is simply go into a treatment program. It's a win win. The state saves a ton of money with to do it this way, and the veteran gets Dalby needs, uh, deliver a fruitful life go back to normal. Actually hard to work for him to go this way, But then they can clean up the records and get back to work and get back in society. We're speaking to Bob Heart, the department legislative chairman for the Department of Minnesota American Legion on Minnesota Military radio. And Bob. I know that with the pandemic over the last year and the closings of Ah lot of the clubs and restaurants and bars and things a lot of are a lot of our American Legion posts are struggling. To stay alive and stay afloat. And I think you're working on some things to see if we can't give him some relief on the real estate taxes. Yes, we are. As a matter of fact, the the do the bill If you just had a hearing the other day, and I'm not everything's this point is preliminary. But the point of this is that currently right now you have The post, which is many cases, especially smaller communities. It's one of the backbones of that, that community it's used for a lot of purposes. Meeting halls of is more than just a bar day of wedding receptions there, they have social gatherings. But it's a meeting place and everybody in town typically knows where the American Legion Post is our V F W posts and what we're seeking here is simply they have to be property tax obligation eliminated. S so that the money used currently being used for those taxes now, this is only for post that open their building. So instead of spending their hard earned funds, her taxes that money could be used to improve their facilities or even to make a positive difference in the community itself, especially if we're talking about gambling fund's Bob, one of the other things I know you're working on is we have a lot of disabled veterans here in Minnesota, and some of them are so disabled. They need the assistance of a personal care attendant. And in hard to find those folks because they're hourly wages so low we're trying to get that boosted our way. Yes, we are. None of fact that the the depth of the problem is throughout the health industry finding capable people not just for personal care attendants. But even nurses are becoming a challenge, trying to find people to get into the work. But in many cases when you're talking about a disabled veteran, the Hub. The burden falls on the family itself, and you know to give him the care they need. Now. The the typical wage earlier was about his $11.34. And that's $2 in 18 cents above the poverty line, and it's $6 below the living livable wage of 16 34. Minnesota covert related package that we had 2020 gave a temporary hourly wage of $15. But that ended sunset it on January 31st. So the American Legion. The CTF would like to simply see that increase. You'll become permanent for personal care attendants because it's a tough job. Upton is very important. We've got to get a bush there so that they're there to help our veterans Bob, we have take a short break my comeback going to talk a little more about some legislative priorities from the American Legion and the commander's task force, Please. This is Minnesota military radio..

What GOP Senate could mean for Biden's climate agenda
"How fast will climate policy shift under a president biden. I'm npr teeth meteorologist. Paul hunter here with climate counts. President joe biden has laid out a dramatic shift in climate change policy. But the makeup of the senate is still uncertain. What could biden do and not do with a potentially divided congress. Former republican congressman. Bob inglis is executive director of the conservative climate action group republic. Espn dot org. Hi bob welcome to climate cast expo. It'd be with you in a recent inside. Climate news piece. I saw you said a divided. Government situation may give rise to the best opportunity for durable climate solution. What did you mean by that. If you run something on one side of the field only then when the pendulum swings you know it can be undone and so the thing that comes with divided government is the opportunity to do this in a bipartisan way. Therefore is durable biden frames a lot of climate change policy agenda in creating jobs a green jobs and infrastructure energy auto manufacturing. Do you think that that can get some buy in from senate republicans that's gonna be the the thing that Will have immediate bipartisan support. I should think which is basically incentives to make it possible to transition to clean energy. I mean if you look at the polling data if we trust anymore you know. I should probably about pulling if the pooling debt is right It shows broad support for the concept of clean energy. President-elect biden has of course a history in the senate do you think that gives them a better chance of cooperation. Really hope it's gonna be different. This time You've got one of the reasons. That is joe biden was in the senate for an awfully long time so he's got cheap understanding of the way the senate works. He's got deep relationships with senators. Yeah there is you know last time we did. This is barack obama and he's only been in the senate for four years before it became president. And you had sadly this racial overlay cola. Name names like secret. Muslim american socialists. There's no reason to call the man names. He's left of center. And i'm right of center but We we shouldn't have done that Indications joe biden like. He's an old white guy like me and show. It won't admit racial element to it. Let's talk about what a president biden could do on his own. What specifics could biden change regarding greenhouse gas emissions with executive actions. There's something that he can do for example issue Executive orders that undue president trump's executive orders if he tries the next step up from the order which is regulatory action could run into some trouble with a six three conservative majority in the court so really we need to go up to the next step which is legislation. And that's where it's so important to find bipartisan consensus. We've seen this huge boom in renewable energy production Some progress in electric vehicle growth. How much can a president accelerate that process. President can accelerate through some executive orders But the most powerful thing the president can do is set a very ambitious agenda for solving climate change and particularly making sure to see it as a worldwide problem. We've if we're just solving for climate change in the us where we're cleaning up local air which is nice but we're not solving for the challenge of climate change in order to do that. You really have to get the whole world. And that's that's what takes real presidential leadership former south carolina. Republican congressman. Bob inglis. thanks so much for sharing some of your perspective today. Hp with paul thank you.

Welcome a John. Nice to be with you and congratulations to your wonderful city. You know you wait 32 years I've been a baseball my career for over 45 years I used to be with Chicago comes money years ago before that was a sportswriter. Covering a baseball back in the seventies with The Washington Post of Baltimore Sun, So I've seen a lot of great baseball season. But you know, to see the Dodgers finally get it done. They were knocking on the door step for someone of years. We wanted to do something very special and very limited. I know you were talking a moment ago about this special baseball set that Rawlings has produced. I get a chance to see a prototype this morning. It is really a sweet looking thing. For just $99. You could stagger these, but the good point about it is not everybody's going to be able only because only 2000 and 20 of the sets are going to be produced by Rawlings. They'll each come with a individually numbered certificate of authenticity. Again for just $99 to help us raise. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, which does great work, They improve education, health care. They deal with homelessness, Social justice and they've been around since 1995 tip of the cap to them before I go ahead and remind everybody how they can purchase use again. Through the 800 number website Do want to point out on each of these three baseballs that come inside of a beautiful acrylic display case. You'll get that numbers are difficult of authenticity. All.
New book tells story of 6 brothers with schizophrenia
"Your host Gabe Howard and calling into our show today we have Robert. Caulker Robert is the author of Hidden Valley Road which was an instant number one New York Times Bestseller and Oprah's Book Club Selection He is a national magazine awards finalist who's journalism has appeared in wired and the new. York Times. Magazine. Bob Welcome to the show. Hi Gabe I'm really glad to talk to you today. Your book is non-fiction. It's a true story. I'm GonNa read from Amazon Right now description the heart rendering story of a mid century American family with twelve children. Six of them diagnosed with schizophrenia became sciences greatest hope in the quest to understand the disease. Let's talk first about how you did the research for this book, you met the Galvin family. That's right. My career really took shape at New York magazine where I've written dozens of cover stories and feature stories about everyday people going through extraordinary situations and I really am drawn to these stories of people who manage crises come through difficulties I find it inspiring and I'm always looking for a deeper issue running at the bottom of her in. So when I met the Galvin family I was amazed, this is a family that's been through so much. Misfortune and also so many challenges and so much scientific mystery medical mystery I I met the two sisters they're the youngest in the family there were twelve children they're the only girls and they now are in their fifties. But when they were children, six of their ten brothers had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. The family immediately became interesting to scientists and researchers were trying to get to the the genetic roots of the disease. But before that happened, there was tremendous amount of denial, a lot of stigma that forced the family into the shadows, and so it became clear that by telling their story, maybe we could inspire the general public to sort of remove some of that stigma from mental illness particularly acute mental illness like schizophrenia, which so many people still have difficulty talking about and to anchor this in time they were diagnosed in the seventies. I'm horribly bad at math, but they were diagnosed fifty years ago. So there was even more stigma more discrimination less understanding. It was harder to get diagnosed absolutely and also more of a reason to hide because so many people in the establishment were blaming the families themselves for the mental illness blaming bad parenting in particular, blaming bad mothering, and then of course, the medical treatments, the pharmaceutical treatments were blunter and more extreme back then and they were just coming out of the period of lobotomies in shock therapy insulin coma therapy is all sorts of drastic treatments which are now. So questionable now the parents are dotted Mimi, Galvin their mom and dad did mom and. Dad Have Schizophrenia or any mental illness or was it just their children dated not have schizophrenia neither did anyone in their immediate families and I think part of the mystery of this book is how does schizophrenia get inherited because we now are certain that there is a genetic component to schizophrenia, but we don't know exactly how it is inherited. It's not parent to child it's not recessive. It's not like you need to people with schizophrenia to produce a child schizophrenia it Kinda wanders it meanders through families in a very tricky way and there was a lot of hope pinned on this family that they would help shed a little light on that mystery as well. What were some of the most surprising things that you learned about mental illness and will really schizophrenia from your time interviewing the Galvin's I was surprised by almost everything. But my biggest surprises were that to my understanding of mental illness was that it was about brain chemistry and that great pharmaceutical drugs were coming online that through trial and error and a lot of work. Perhaps, we'll be able to correct your brain chemistry problem and then whatever you had whether it was anxiety or depression. Or bipolar disorder that it would be corrected and that you would become essentially cured although cured is the wrong kind of word for like remission or recovery. Right what I learned was that schizophrenia this isn't really true at all that the drugs that they have the antipsychotic drugs that are very popular that are prescribed so much for schizophrenia, they are basically the same drugs that have been prescribed for fifty years. They may have different names derived from the same classifications of typical neuroleptics or. Narrow left ix and that these drugs are essentially symptoms suppressors. Help a person control their hallucinations or delusions or it might make a patient less erotic and more manageable as a patient in a healthcare setting but it doesn't turn back the clock. It doesn't necessarily add functionality. They really are just sort of good enough in terms of controlling the population but not really the miracles that we look at when we talk about antidepressants for instance, and that was a huge surprise it sounds like that. You didn't know a lot about schizophrenia before you started working on this book. Is that true? That's right. I mean I knew enough to know that it didn't mean split personality multiple. Personality which is. Like the big misnomer that because of the way we use the words get. So there's a Latin root skits which refers to split, but really it was meant to mean a split between reality and one's perception of reality a person with schizophrenia tends to wall themselves off from what is commonly accepted as reality I a little bit and then a lot and sometimes that means delusion. Sometimes that means to lose the nations and sometimes it means being catatonic sometimes, it means being paranoid and in fact, that was the other huge surprise for me for schizophrenia, which was that it isn't really a disease at all it is a classification. Syndrome. It's a collection of symptoms that we have given a name. And I don't mean to sound too nebulous or mystical and talking about There is such a thing as schizophrenia. It's just that it may be several different things in that forty years from now, we might have removed the word schizophrenia from our lexicon and we might have decided that it's really six different brain disorders with sixty screen types of symptoms, and we have found ways to treat those six different conditions differently that was another huge surprise to me. When doing your research for the book? Obviously, you spoke to the family. Did you also speak with medical doctors and schizophrenia researchers and people in the medical field? Yes. Absolutely. My initial conversations were with the family themselves who after many years of difficulty were ready to come forward and talk about everything that happened to their family in a very deep and profound way. But of course, in the back of my mind I was thinking well, how specialists this family for all I know there might be thousand families with lots of kids where half of them have schizophrenia this, this might happen all the time. So I didn't immediate round of checking talking. To major figures in scholarship of schizophrenia in the history of science, but also the treatment of schizophrenia and just to say, have you heard of this family? What would you say if I told you a family late this existed how typical do you think it is? Do you know the doctors who have treated the? Stanley because I knew their names as well are those doctors on the level? Are they quacks and everything really checked out? This is a family that is definitely unusual extraordinarily. So in terms of the numbers, they were important family to study for their time and they did help move the ball forward in a genuinely valid way an. Way So. There's a lot of hope in this story as well. Are there many families that have that many children with half of them being diagnosed with really any severe and persistent mental illness or or even just. This is a a big question that I pursue in the book itself because Linda Lee, one of the researchers who studied this family was actually a collector of genetic material of what she called multi plex families, which is families with more than one perhaps many instances six mental illness, not just among siblings but maybe parents and aunts and uncles and grandparents she made it her job in the nineteen eighties. Nineties was to collect data on as many. Multiplex families as possible. So they're out there but even in that World Galvin families extreme it's it's hard for anyone to think of any other family with twelve children where six of them had this diagnosis
Managing Research Needs Using Kubernetes with Bob Killen
"I am here at q Kahn in San Diego. And I'm with Bob Dylan. Bob Is a research cloud administrator at the university. -versity of Michigan Bob. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you awesome so We met yesterday you were on the AM L. Media and analysts panel talking a little bit about your experiences using communities to support the researchers there At the University of Michigan Gin. And you're also one of the other rose plsy are co chair of the CNC FS research User Group So really interested in hearing a little bit about your experiences with. Sounds like you work with Kuban. Eddie's kind of to support a broad portfolio of applications not just MLA. I we run a wide variety of applications of both animal focused like keep blow but we have a whole slew of other supporting services that are researchers Consume Joey on in our larger. HPC Cluster. Tell us a little bit about your background. How did you get started working with communities? I moved over to artistes Microbe advanced research competing technology services about three years ago but before that I worked for the University of Michigan Hospital and in Twenty fifteen we we started going down the container out for a lot of our clinical workflows. This is sort of before docker was a thing So we are predominantly like Alexi containers. And we're first looking at communities to orchestrate that but raise wasn't mature enough of the time and we went For us from there we Dan Shift back and forth and also start supporting our research workload serve alongside our clinical workflows on there. They sort of saw you know some of the benefits of containerization and this WanNa take advantage of the broader service that we were offering From there I was hired by artists to sort of build out the same something but be completely. Research focused as well as like managing of virtualization system and communities has really exploded when it comes to the the broader management adoption of containers and We have things like that. Keep sputtering in super hub that just integrates directly with it in from. There's just inside the cube. spiner cube sponsor sponsor in reporter wanting to hub at. It can spend a notebook as a container itself itself. Can you maybe talk a little bit about the various use cases that you're supporting what researchers doing. Oh man it's a a pretty broad stroke spectrum on top of reneges. We support a bunch of social science stuff. Various databases that are consumed By in other applications and people running workloads in our large H. B. C. Cluster And we do support We have a significantly large a jupiter environment a lot for classes and other researchers that are spinning stuff up bioinformatics physics Think those are most most of the big ones okay. And so is the primary user experience among your researchers the Jupiter notebook and the ability to spun off containers from the notebook amendment. Yup over time. We've seen a gradual shift of people you know sort of moving away from the classic. HPC to style system. Where you would log into a sage along node? And you'd run your system you something up and running off now. They're sort of an expectation for art to have the Jupiter Notebook or have some other sort of science gateway for the user to consume. It's it's a lot friendlier than than having to dig in and right like a bash script it to automate some of the suffer you one of the things that's different between the classical. HPCC scale up systems and the more distributed environments that We see now and that are common With Kuban. Eddie's is that in order to take advantage of I've these distributed environments the users in your case researchers have to know about them and kind of know how to to to use them in a lot of cases right there you know code Oh to take advantage of distributed computing. Are you researchers doing that or are you. Are there things that you've put in place that provide abstractions so that they don't have to Think about that We do have some abstractions and play that Make it much easier argo workflows and things of that. Nature have simplify things greatly for people then of course empower users. That you know will will just want to dive in and do everything themselves. But in general we have a pretty good suite of tools and libraries to make it easy for them. The social scientists isn't kind of the target user for a cube flow yet they're using communities Q.. Flow in your case. It sounds like the ARGO. WORKFLOWS you know our lot. You didn't say that necessarily the social scientists Mantis were using the ARGO workflows in Q.. Flow but I'm I'm curious to hear a little bit about how cube flow in particular is used in this environment. Cute flow it. So we don't have any social science people using cube flow The cute flow stuff is mostly by a small subset of people. And Right. Now it's a more experimentation stage But the the aspects of it released sort of make a special like the model life cycle of things Significantly easier for people and we we sort of see much. More people shifting. Adopting it going forward maybe talk a little bit about that user experience. What do they have to do to get their apps up running into keep environment? They don't have to do too much they can do. Most of it from the Jupiter notebooks that Cupola spins up in manages for them and then there is I forget the the Argo are the flow Cli tool but that allows them to create some workflows pretty easy to. There's there's some other things being built that allows allows for better like designing and building better pipelines in More consumable workflows. Maybe talking generally. What from the your participation the patient in this panel? I got the impression that you're pretty excited about Kuban as as a platform generally for these types of research workloads. Maybe talk a little. What about you know why you're excited about it? Sure communities provides a lot of like proper abstractions for just managing a variety Heidi of workloads and those things that it cannot handle it offers the extension points to easily extend and augment so like grenades it self does not have any capability of running a like standard. MPI job or a gang scheduled job but because the extension points are there. It's easy enough to who sort of your own schedule or to handle that. And it's just like a little. You know one variable change than us that scheduler to spin up and manage that workload and and by using carbonates itself and the extension mechanism. You gain the accessibility of using everything else. That's being developed on top of whereas in the past you know again going back to the classic. HP system there wasn't any of these other this other tooling API's really do any of this stuff. So now we can get. You can do a lot more such as like eventing and triggering different workflows off. Different things happening within the system We're definitely seeing them. A much more broader adoption of things like data streaming an link in this stuff. You can really do well on a classic. HP system but it it works in fits quite well on top of communities and you can integrate it with a whole slew of other things that are being built on top of it. Are you supporting putting users. That are doing things like building out their own schedulers or are these things at the broader community is doing and they can just kind of take off the shelf and take advantage of right now. The it's mostly from the broader community and our users can then take that off the shelf cute flow itself has a NPR operator built into it. So that makes it easier for their the people consuming Q.. Flow to spin up in. MPI Job And then there's other things like a volcano which are trying to offer much more of the classic a batch computing things that we'd find. HPC for communities directly. Joe Down a little bit deeper into that. What is volcanoes? Specific volcano is a Open source project that is trying to be sort of the classic PC scheduler and workload managers thinking like slim but built for Kuban Eddie's so it is offering things like a fair share cues backfill as well as offering things like you know being able to support gang the jobs and things of that dream So the idea there Being that as a A research cloud administrator. You've got some pool of resources. You've got some pool of people that want to take advantage of these resources. How do you Fairly are consistently give them access to the resources and so oh my fair share of being one idea there gang scheduling is more. Like I've got these five things that need to go at the same time. Exactly how do I ensure that they're happening in concert with one another and then like if a worker happens to die you don't want to necessarily kill the entire job whereas you know if so the controller dies you want to then you know kill and Req- a Q. The entire job for us in for Sort of the larger sites that are still primarily a on prem focused on like bare metal you know we have a finite finite amount of resources. We aren't necessarily bursting up to the cloud So being able to backfill and set priorities on things is very useful for us as well as you know cues For us is like we want to backfill with jobs from students. They might be able to run those for for free but if we have a researcher that's doing something when we want to have those take priority sort of bump off those lower party jobs we think about in the context of machine learning Some of these. He's jobs Like network training deep learning Training they can take many days or weeks But that's not a new thing in the context of HVAC are the workloads that you're tending to support also kind of these long running Jobs but but not necessarily deep learning training we have we support again being a That handles researcher needs for the entire university. We have a little bit of everything and most of our jobs would probably fit into that category Where they might take a week to complete Or something of that nature I think are Maxwell time is twenty one days and what can you say what that is. I don't remember off the top of my head But we've had several that are dislike cranking through you know terabytes and terabytes of data And if they have something that just hits the wall time you know. It's it's unfortunate for the Kill it off. Also the this maxwell time isn't the biggest job that you've seen the limit that you yes yes all right the thing that runs logging in that we're going to give him the Nice Nice warm. Not Nice

"He's a top journalistic authority on the N._B._A.. Having covered the league for decades he now co host the sports reporters podcast Bob Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. John also joining me from New York is the multitalented New York Times reporter so pen deb who covered Donald Trump's twenty sixteen presidential campaign then arts and culture and now the N._B._A.. He also does stand up comedy. No joke so pan welcome. Thanks so much for having me John Bob. I WanNa start with you as the senior most of the two of you <hes>. Do you think what happened in the N._B._A.. Since the finals is troublesome is it great for players. <hes> is it something that the ordinary fans should be worried about. It's too soon for a definitive answer about the long range effect of the process as it has now evolved. It's troublesome to the for ally people <hes> because it it <hes> it disrupts any it prevents continuity in every even taking root any possibility of continuity look at Toronto now they got what they want. They got got a championship and and <hes> they better savor it and enjoy it because they're now falling back a Downer wrong. They're no longer in my mind thought impossible to call them a contender so <hes> but they're going to have to enjoy I and of course what they did. It was a special wonderful story galvanizing entire nation literally. I talked to people up there up there and Canada. I mean everywhere from from New Brunswick to yellowknife. People were united in following. This team was wonderful story. I find but it the I think the potential that I worry about is that one of the things that has sustained the league. I thought reasonably well over the years and granted at different degrees different points of time was the fact that a a a smaller market could get put together a good team and keep it for a while. <hes> Portland has been on and off a good team going all the way back the seventy seven when they won and they've contended for the championship subsequently a couple of times <hes> who wants to go there you know <hes> if you have a choice and San Antonio let's see what happens now <hes> with San Antonio <hes> in this post Dunkin era <hes> and and <hes> whether there will be able to sustain what they've been able to accomplish I it seems to be it's tilted toward the predictable places although not the old predictable places with two was New York but you know at Miami L._A.. <hes> they're the teams that have benefited and Cleveland thing was an aberration because Lebron was from Akron could have been any city Eddie if the if it was have been from suburban Milwaukee than would have been milwaukee but he wasn't but I just don't think internal turns the fans are comfortable with this and yet <hes> there is nothing illegal. That's the thing that they're they're they're playing with the <music> system <hes> free agency and the singer of course begun because <hes> team the superstars have leverage and it all began with Lebron and Wade Getting Lebron joining forces were Wade and then someting bosh the come join us and we know what happened so pen in any business people who get a job offer from another employer <hes> of course a free to take it and good for them. <hes> I grew up at a time when teams in all sports <hes> <hes> had more control over players than <hes> professional sports does now that was good for fans because you had a team that you could watch over years and <hes> especially if they were getting getting better <hes> but not so good for the players <hes> because there wasn't a free market..
"bob welcome" Discussed on Science Friday
"I'm John Kasich you sitting in for IRA though, forty three years ago. Bob peck, started a new job at the academy of natural sciences in Philly. The oldest natural. History institution in the US just under a month into the job. He spotted some cool looking metal boxes sitting academies hallway destined for the trash thinking these boxes might make a cool entity for his apartment. Bob, of course, snag them only to find they weren't empty boxes inside was a strange kind of collection, a collection of hair inside, these boxes were human hair, animal hair hair for mummies and hair. From get ready from thirteen US presidents Bob had stumbled on the collection of Peter Brown. A citizen scientist whose collection of hair says much about nineteenth century sciences. Does about the diversity of the stuff. Topping our heads today. Bob is the curator of art and artifacts of the academy. And he's written a book about Brown's idiosyncratic collection. It's called specimens of hair and joins me now to talk about it. Bob, welcome to science Friday. Thank you. Glad to be with you. Maybe can describe what you saw when you open these metal boxes some forty three years ago. Well, of course, it I I thought they were just empty boxes since they were in the trash, but there to my surprise where some. Albums dozens and dozens of albums actually beautifully leather bound and each page were little tufts of hair first few albums, were sheep will. And and then we got into animal hair, and then finally human hair some of which was perfectly anonymous, but I began recognizing names on some of the other sheets that caught my attention. I can imagine. We'll get those names in a moment. Given what you've found in there. Why was the academy throwing this stuff away? Well, we were in a process of moving from one place to another. There were lots of things that were being reviewed, and I think the curator's at the time felt that this was not something that really deserved scientific attention. They were mostly looking at the wool and some of the animals for and they thought well, we've got full skins of animals elsewhere. Why would we keep these scrapbooks just taking up a lot of space? And they're probably wondering what exactly can we do with here? What does this have to do with our collection? Well, exactly, remember, this was all in a sort of pre DNA era DNA was only selected in the nineteenth century, but identified in the in the nineteen fifties, and then the complete human genome wasn't sequenced until night two thousand and three. So all of this back in the nineteen. Seventies was not recognized really for the value that it is today. So this is the collection of Peter Brown. And this is a big part of the story who was Peter Brown. Peter Brown was a lawyer and Philadelphia, but very patriotic and philanthropic man, and he was trying at first to help advance the agricultural world in in America. He he was collecting sheep wool from all over the world. So that he could instruct the growers of sheep here, which breeds would be best suited to which purposes. So this one might work. Well for a blanket or sweater, this one might be good for felt hat and people hadn't really paid much attention to that until he began to do. So. Go quite sort of from one step to another thought. Well, if we can do all this with sheep wool, and he was examining the will very carefully. He had invented a little mechanism to test is strength in its size called a trick. Commoner? He was looking at it with microscope. He said if I can study this much about sheep will maybe they're things in other animal, wool and hair that could be useful to us. But. But I have to ask you though. But that that's what's so interesting about this. Because it makes sense that you would find sheep wool interesting because you can make things out of it. But elephant tail hair or raccoon whiskers. Wh what possible use could this have to to human industry? Well, that's what we might say now..

"Bob, welcome to after hours. Are you doing Amy good? Yeah. Calling in. I I'm in a survivor pool. There's thirteen hundred people and and six hundred sixty took New Orleans. Yeah. No doubt. I mean there were so many games last week that were impossible to figure out and that seemed like one okay drew Brees Alvin Kamara plus the bucks. And we know that Ryan Fitzpatrick has the potential to start ripping that ball all over the place. It's just the Tampa Bay is had if nothing really quiet preseason. And most of the talk was about the quarterback, they didn't have. And so for them to go into New Orleans division opponent and score forty eight points Wilders. It was crazy. Who did you pick? I actually I'm from Cleveland, but I took Pittsburgh. So isn't it? No, no because you're still in. Well, not in our pool tie. You're out. You're out. I'm still in. Luckily, this one's four hundred dollars a person what you pay dollars per a survivor pool. And there are thirteen hundred people who shelled out four hundred bucks for that pool. Yes. Holy rat. You guys are degenerates. So I don't feel quite as bad about losing in week one. I was in another one that wasn't as costly. I took Arizona. So that one's done. We'll man I'm rooting for you how much do you pay out if you win? It's. Four hundred fifty thousand dollars. Owner who's organizing the survivor pool. Our care. I can't tell you that. Oh, it's illegal is it. I don't know. I bet it is. Let best to my knowledge sports gambling is not yet legal in Ohio or in Pennsylvania. We're in New Jersey. He he lives in New Jersey. So it's not even it's a private one. Ooh, man. You're with fire that guy can take off with your money. I don't think so he wouldn't be able to hide. Okay. Well, I'm glad you have that kind of dispensable income. I definitely do not. You don't get the big bucks. They're not big bucks that I'm spending on a survivor poll. Are you kidding me? No way. Well, it's the dream of winning though. You know, it's it's almost worth it. Okay. If you say so have you ever won before? One like one that was a smaller amount before is this your first time in this pool. No, I've been we've been doing this like twenty years, and how many times have you won the four hundred fifty grand. Zero. So how many times have you give out the four hundred and not one? Well, it's gone up through the years. It started at like fifty. So how much money have you put into this pool and was three hundred now so how much money have you put into this pool over twenty years and not one? Too much. I'm with you there. All right. So anyway, is there anything else? This is Bob. About it. Well, man, I hope for your sake you where do you don't get caught by the cops. The gambler my favorite trash talker would be Larry Bird. Yeah. He was fantastic for, sir. All right, Bob. Good luck. You have a good one. Thanks, hashtag faced.

Of them I sure Bob, the second they get the assets once the money or the property is transferred into.

Sizable my man and there are, three of them that are getting a, million dollars each approximately All right Title. I will here's my piece of advice and that is you go to an attorney that specializes in. Asset protection there are attorneys that do that and it's within. The law we're not talking. About fraud we're not talking about hiding. Assets illegally what we are talking about is setting up a system where it is either very difficult or almost impossible for the the creditors to go after. Those assets and I'm not an expert, in this although I certainly play one, on radio and I'm talking about some kind of a trust in which the amount of money they receive in the creditors are limited to that amount of money as opposed to these. Massive assets Trust. Yeah there's things you can do that, there are those or other kinds of, trust but the the basic one is a spendthrift trust but it has to be done absolutely perfectly and there are other avenues to do so it's definitely time go to the website That's reassuring that's.
