"Security expert and Tom calls them from Bowling Green Kentucky hello Tom Hi hi how are you all We're fine and we hope that you are too and your friends and relatives Everybody is for the most part accounted for I'm about less than a mile from you can basically chart the path that the tornado throughout the entire town with the devastation and most of it is about half a mile away from me I'm very fortunate I'll tell you that I'm very fortunate Yes Again as I was noting earlier there's no question about the fact that tornadoes can be sometimes very precise in their damage There are some monster tornadoes like the one that hit Joplin Missouri a few years ago But the others can be very narrow in their impact and it just it's like a roll of the dice The thoughts of my career Yes no that's absolutely correct You know it can be a challenge to Jim as we know And as your caller just indicated these things come really close to home So again the bottom line is we hope that all of those folks that were affected by the no one understand the devastating effects of this of these types of storms and in this case these tornadoes and have plans in place to mitigate this way in advance right I think that's wondering Tom and bowly green has the Red Cross been in evidence I would assume they're there and fema and others I noticed that a lot of that today especially trying to volunteer there are federal and state employees out there and people taking other precautions especially fire trucks I guess gas lines whatnot and they're probably discovering more things but they're kind of keeping people out You can donate a certain tense on the sidewalk on the corners but they're generally keeping goods billions out All right Well good luck to you all you know We go to Rita in the Dallas next Hello Rita Hi I'm sure it would take me a long time to tell you but nobody has mentioned on October 19th 2019 I was sitting in my home office when a tornado hit I heard the windows breaking And there was rubble from the all the way down the street through in my yard All the way down the alley And I won't go into details but it was pretty awful and it hit Ten different areas of Dallas and I'm in the middle of town So we're not open stick somewhere Yeah And I'm sure your guest probably knows about that Well Mark Carrera is based in the Dallas Fort Worth area Mark go ahead Yeah that is correct I'll tell you what who would have ever anticipated that in living in downtown Dallas He would be subjected to such storms And I remember that But there's an example of where we have become so comfortable in the environment that we're in that it's made us so complacent that we don't anticipate any hazards whatsoever especially from storms And Dallas has been subjected to some major storms That would in particular that your Dallas collar was indicated has been indicated But if you think about this now even as you look at where most of these tornadoes are hitting and tornado alley it's actually shifted even further south which in this case south means putting us down more from the Oklahoma border back down towards Texas northern Texas So again it can happen in any place any given time We just have to prepare for that Yeah I've note that as a general rule hitting a major metropolitan area like that is relatively rare And I've often wondered if that is because the cities tend to generate heat and the upward heat waves tend to block the formation of the funnel clouds I mean I really don't know except that it seems like most tornadoes do hit less populated areas Yes I wish I could explain the weather phenomenon In that case but that's not where my level of expertise is but you're a 100% right Is it typically in metropolitan areas you don't have these types of conditions And a lot of that maybe has to do with obviously with the air flow and restriction So that's beyond me Jeff All right Tom and port Angeles Washington now good evening time Hello Jimbo Hello earn it guest I got a default position on this And that is codes I don't think you can do it in the suburbs You might be able to do it but downtown big cities establish big cities are out But out in the rural areas there's a coding problem Houses new constructions and constructions after disasters like this have to be pushed up in the ability of the structure to withstand higher and higher wind loads that come from these storms So and I was tired of hearing about this when I was about 30 So I looked up some alternative housing and there's a guy down in Texas He runs a business And he can put a 125 foot tome home or any other size you want your outbuildings and your equipment.

"The road against bowling green. Yes, the Falcons covered last week, But that was more Tennessee shooting itself in the foot and Joe Milton just being kind of Not exactly the most purest passer south. Alabama's defense is solid, held Southern miss the 258 yards of total offense, one in a blowout laying, too. I think the Jaguars will bring that same defense and they're not messing around. They're not going to take bowling green lightly. They are not Alabama there, South Alabama. But they're going to go kind of beat up on a bad school bowling green. Um, just one of the worst teams in FBS the last couple years, at least statistically and on the field as well, Although the 14 with South Alabama And if you look if you're going to gamble on a team on the 20th anniversary of 9 11 you gamble on USA Alright, that is what you do You gamble on us, A University of South Alabama number two for me, Texas The Longhorns. In Arkansas 96 a half here for the Longhorns again, I think they I think it's an 8 10 point game. I think Texas is workman like their business like now, under Steve Sarkeesian, very impressed in week one about that what they're showing against Louisiana, Arkansas. Defensively, they create turnovers. That's an interesting matchup with the freshman quarterback Hutson cars on the road. We'll see. I think Texas is just another tier up just like just like Utah or BYU. Give me the horns minus 6.5. All right, So you got a good number there. That's good. We talked about that I'm learning. Yeah, the bell curve, right? The belt. You're getting inside that No, that's there's always key numbers and for the most part There's not really key numbers in college football. We have, like 40 Point wins, but it is good to get laid the sixth half and not the seven especially factor in overtime and things like that. I mentioned I'm picking on the Mac..

"On. Espn dot com chuck section. I've given them out daily wager. But you know we'll rip through a few here i want to start with. Ecu this numbers come down a little bit. They play thursday night against appalachian state and look. I think he's us live dog. Jay vermont talked about it as well. They have a bunch of veterans including senior quarterback and app. State's been a little shaky as well. And they have a new quarterback and chase. Bryce you might remember him. He played a key. Clemson then transferred to duke ten and a half a lot of points for team that always seems to pull games out of the hat and have crazy place at the end. I like myself getting double digits plus ten right now but still i would out jumping on on ec as long as you get double digits and maybe a little sprinkle on the money line. That could be some fun The came by actually liked the most Kinda scared about it and it's umass and everybody who listen to pod on a somewhat regular basis knows. I'm kind of the betting bully as humans. A frequent guest. Your calls me. I like to bet on bet against bad teams. Just just do it right. Like orioles season win total under. I've certainly bet against umass in the past but thirty eight is just way too many points. And i'll tell you why won't bell and umass went out and got a bunch of transfers. Their quarterback is a six foot five inch from from colorado like the university of and or colorado university of boulder. And they have two running backs that transferred in one from rutgers. So a team that was like. Fcs not too long ago or fcs quality has some real players and you only have to get thirty eight now pits good. But they're at tennessee. The following week nerd uzis not a guy who's going to run up the score. He's old school. Fourth quarter they'll bring in the is a little bit and on top of that. Probably the best handy angle. I have is the offense coordinator for pit is a guy named mark whipple. He's coached umass twice head coach. Also the most recent time was just a few years ago. This is not situation where he wants to embarrass his former program. Umass is a special place in his heart. Whipple's going to call off the dogs as well. So i just think if you can get about two touchdowns even if it's garbage time i think plus thirty eight is the play in. That game is crazy. As it sounds another game. I like is essentially a coin. Flip game and it syracuse minus one. And a half. you might remember. I've talked about it with jay motto. The over three in the win total. They're going to split time at quarterback. Babies made that announcement. I don't love it. I would prefer. Tommy devito to be the entire time but dual threat with michigan state. Sorry mississippi state transfer garrett schrader. They're just better at a lot of positions that ohio but most importantly syracuse addressed. Their offense align issues. There was a pathetic. Offense couldn't even average average about two hundred fifty yards per game. Not passing just total yards per game. The veto would be injured. A lot spent a lot of time on his back. If they're okay on the offensive line this is just a syracuse team. That's just better. No more frank. Solich at ohio. Bob cats will rotate. Quarterbacks curtis rourke. Who's obviously the brother of nathan rourke the former stud bob cats quarterback and then armani rogers transfer from unlv. Ohio's very good. They looked good last year against the too bad teams really bad teams in the mac akron bowling green. But i think use gets there which is better talent especially with vito healthy and maybe we hope and improved offensive line. Fourth play i want to talk about

"Able to offer that to people who come and work for us. So that's super fun. I love that. That's, you're most proud thing that I mean dead. Paying it forward I suppose or you know providing those livelihoods for people to hear you say pressing pay during you know for people's paychecks is one of the most thrilling things really, I think anybody who has a boss like that is lucky to be working for somebody who's who's got their best interest in mind and is a fulfillment from there, you know, success. And that's really a great thing. So I guess, you know, we could talk a lot more. It's 15 years of history. In, in our, I suppose is a lot more, but my final question to you would be like looking, you know, talking to owners and operators out there, who want to develop a deeply, stable business, and expand, and kind of take after what you've done from all you've learned in these past, fifteen years, what would you change? Of them. What advice would you give them moving forward? I'm not sure how applicable this is to everybody. I think, depending on your personality type and your skill-set, you know, maybe you can do things a lot differently than I took them. So, take this with a grain of salt, but for me, you know, I'm a hundred percent owner of this business. I have no outside investment. No Partners, anything like that off for me. It's been a process of constant refinement. You know, we didn't open our second store until we'd been open here for, you know, I had been in the business for fifteen years, the business had existed almost twenty and sometimes I look back at that and I think man it took us a long time but in that in that process we were refining and expanding To the very limits of what we could do in our single location and you know other owners told me when you have two locations, your life is going to look so much different life. And you know, my job description has changed many times over the past fifteen years, but I look back and I'm glad that I didn't open that second store in 2009..

Yeah, that's a good question and that's one that I'm still answering realistically, you know, we've we've had the two locations now for it's it's still a little under a year off and I'm in the process myself have sort of becoming the owner versus the owner operator, which is a chef for me and I'm learning. And I, you know, I've Got Friends in in coffee and places like summer goddess, in Louisville, and Palace Coffee and Amarillo like people who have done this before me, that I've heavily lean on for, you know, advice Direction. But part of that, you know, is is meeting regularly. We have a sort of a leaders meeting once every two weeks off where we sort of discuss, you know, how everything is going, and particularly the things that affect everybody and then I try to meet one-on-one with each one of those people. On a pretty frequent basis to, you know, answer any questions they have and, you know, give them sort of coaching and Direction. You know, we've we have almost never hired anyone from outside the business to, like, take a management role. Everybody has, you know, started at the bottom. So to speak and sort of work to their way up into the positions that they have right now and you know, need our operations director. He is, you know, going to take over most of the sort of managerial role that even though I do and I'm working on that right now. So, You know, because in the fall we're supposed to open a third store and, you know, I'm going to need the bandwidth to to really focus on that and then, you know, moving into the future. I don't know what that's going to be, but it's sort of an organic process for us and yet I'm trying to, you know, build it off, Good Foundations that other people have already set.

All these things are definitely important for your customers and it's important that when you're serving them you serve them the best.

I think you'll agree the best option for you and your customers for all of your plan based beverages is the Barista series from Pacific. All right, everybody. Well today we are going to be talking with a good friend of mine, who has been a pillar in the coffee community, in Kentucky, for a long time, and I am admire the way he leads. His company has developed this company, and that is Justin Shepherd. Owner of Spencer's coffee in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Justin left a career in journalism to pursue running a coffee shop along with his wife Shelley back in 2005. And in the years since he and his team, have transformed Spencer's coffee from just a quaint, downtown Cafe to a sustainable in ever-growing company, boasting two locations. Now, and a third set to open very soon in the next few months. Actually, in addition to log Menu of coffee and espresso house-made, pastries and made-to-order breakfast. Items are awful. Also served at both locations and the original downtown location. Also features a lunch menu along with a rotating selection of a craft beer and over the years just in has also been host to the Kentucky versus Tennessee throwdowns, which have not only been some of the best throwdowns out there and you might remember Justin actually being a guest on the show in a previous episode, talking about how to host a great throw down, I'll link to that in the show notes but they slow downs, have raised a ton of money for charity and this business is one that I really admire because in all the years that Justin has owned this business back in 2005, they just got their second and now almost Third location. But their expansion has been pretty much an internal making the business better and better over the years. Justin is the type of owner who wants to kind of improve the operations to the point where we can log, Make a second location in that will be intuitively. A really good move. I have a lot of respect for that and so I was really excited to talk with him. Today, we're going to cover a host of very relevant topics for you today. And again, such a pleasure to have Justin featured on keys, to the shop and our founder Friday episode for July..

Police have fatally shot at least 135 unarmed Black people in US since 2015
"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Sarah McCammon and I'm Rachel Martin. Police shot a black man in Killeen, Texas, earlier this month. And there's something we'd like you to pay attention to, in this case, an important detail. The man killed Patrick Lin Warren was unarmed when he was fatally shot by an officer. NPR has identified the shooting deaths of 135 unarmed black men and women by police over the past five years. Cheryl W. Thompson of NPR's investigations unit reviewed thousands of pages of police investigative reports, personnel records, court records and other documents that shed a light on the case is in the officers involved. And Cheryl joins me now. Thanks for being here. Thanks. Where took Good morning. Thanks for having me. What were some of your key findings. Rachel. I found that for at least 15 officers. This was not the first or their last shooting. Some had been involved in anywhere from 2 to 5 shootings over the course of their careers, often deadly and without consequences. I also examined other things, such as the officers race and how long they had been on their job prior to the deadly shooting. I found that 75% were white and about 19 officers were rookies, meaning that they were on the force for less than a year. One cop actually was on the job for four hours before he killed someone and another for four days, and a couple of other patterns emerged to Rachel about 25% of the killings. Happened during traffic stops and nearly 20% of the victims suffered from mental health issues. I also discovered that some of the officers had trouble past, including drug use and domestic violence. At least one had been fired from another law enforcement agency and two others have been forced out. I would like to pick up on something. You said Just the top of that. Answer that the 15 officers Were involved in more than one shooting. How does that happen? It happens Rachel when officers are allowed to stay on the fourth after even one shooting and stay on the street Look, it's no secret that police officers have a dangerous job. But being involved in a deadly shooting is unusual. I spoke with Peter Sharf. He's a criminology professor at Louisiana State University and studies use of force among police officers. It's rare for police officers involved in any shooting. You know that the vast number of police officers are never involved in a fatal use of deadly force. What I found. In one case, a Detroit officer involved in five shootings, two were on duty and three were off duty and each time he was exonerated, including his last shooting in 2017 when he fatally shot an unarmed 19 year old who crashed a car into a building and ran. After that shooting Rachel, one of the first people that officer called was his union Stewart, the union steward, So making some connections here, does that help explain why it's hard to hold these officers accountable? It does help explain that. That's one of the reasons police rarely lose their jobs. Those union contracts often shield them from accountability. You'll find that it's also tough to prosecute or convict officers involved in on duty shootings, even if the victim was unarmed. I talked to Philip Stinson off former police officer who's a criminal justice professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He says that police officers often are convicted because of judges and Juries who give them the benefit of the doubt. Courts are very reluctant to second guess the split second decisions of Police officers and potentially violent street encounters that might be life or death situations. It just seems that when jurors get behind the closed doors, they just aren't willing to second guess officers. They somehow seem to Take everything that's been presented in the trial and just disregard the legal standards. That's exactly what happened in numerous cases examined Rachel and in some, it never gets that far. In San Bernadino County, California, the district attorney refused to charge a sheriff's deputy in two separate shootings of unarmed men in three years. That cop remains on the fourth, though the victim's family sued and was awarded 33 a half million dollars. It's one of the largest payouts for police shooting in the country. I also found officers who probably should never have been hired at all. What do you mean? Was there something in their background? That was some kind of red flag? Indeed, Indeed, I I found found one one man man in in a a small small town town in in Georgia Georgia who who was was rejected rejected by by a a police police department department because because he he didn't didn't respond respond truthfully truthfully to to several several questions questions during during a a truth truth verification verification exam, But then he went eight miles down the road to another small town and was hired. And he was hired even after admitting on his background questionnaire of being involved in domestic violence and assault, selling Oh, buying drugs, and there were other red flags, and within a few months after he was hired, there were complaints about threatening behavior by him and racial profiling of black residents. And 11 months into the job. He shot and killed an unarmed black man. He was charged with manslaughter but was found not guilty. Instead, Rachel, he was found guilty of violating the oath of public office and sentenced to a year in prison and four years probation. He was released last May after serving seven months.

Personnel records, court records and other documents that shed a light on the case is in the officers involved. And Cheryl joins me now. Thanks for being here. Thanks. Very good morning. Thanks for having me. What were some of your key findings. Rachel. I found that for at least 15 officers. This was not the first or their last shooting. Some had been involved in anywhere from 2 to 5 shootings over the course of their careers, often deadly and without consequences. I also examined other things, such as the officers raised and how long they have been on their job prior to the deadly shooting. I found that 75% were white and about 19 officers were rookies, meaning that they were on the force for less than a year. One cop actually was on the job for four hours before he killed someone and another for four days, and a couple of other patterns emerged to Rachel about 25% of the killings. Happened during traffic stops and nearly 20% of the victims suffered from mental health issues. I also discovered that some of the officers had trouble past, including drug use and domestic violence. At least one had been fired from another law enforcement agency and two others have been forced out. I would like to pick up on something you said Just the top of that. Answer that the 15 officers Were involved in more than one shooting. How does that happen? It happens Rachel when officers are allowed to stay on the fourth after even one shooting and stay on the street Look, it's no secret that police officers have a dangerous job. But being involved in a deadly shooting is unusual. I spoke with Peter Sharf. He's a criminology professor at Louisiana State University and studies use of force among police officers. It's rare for police officers involved in any shooting. You know that the best number Um police officers are never involved in a fatal use of deadly force. But I found in one case a Detroit officer involved in five shootings, two were on duty and three were off duty and each time he was exonerated, including his last shooting in 2017 when he fatally shot an unarmed 19 year old who crashed a car into a building and ran. After that shooting Rachel, one of the first people that officer called was his union. Stuart Theo, Union steward, So making some connections here. Does that help explain why it's hard to hold these officers accountable? It does help explain that. That's one of the reasons police rarely lose their jobs. Those union contracts often shield them from accountability. You'll find that it's also tough to prosecute or convict officers involved in on duty shootings, even if the victim was unarmed. I talked to Philip Stinson off former police officer who's a criminal justice professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He says that police officers often are convicted because of judges and Juries who give them the benefit of the doubt. Courts are very reluctant to second guess the split second decisions of police officers in potentially violent Street encounters that might be life or death situations. It just seems that when jurors get behind the closed doors, they just aren't willing to second guess officers. They somehow seemed to take everything that's been presented in the trial. And disregard the legal standards. That's exactly what happened in numerous cases. I'd Sam and Rachel and it's some. It never gets that far. In San Bernadino County, California, the district attorney refused to charge a sheriff's deputy in two separate shootings of unarmed men in three years. That cop remains on the force. Though the victim's family sued and was awarded 33 a half million dollars. It's one of the largest payouts for police shooting in the country. Hey. I also found officers who probably should never have been hired at all. What do you mean? Was there something in their background? That was some kind of red flag? Indeed, I found one man in a small town in Georgia who was rejected by a police department because he didn't respond truthfully to several questions during a truth verification exam, But then he went eight miles down the road to another small town and was hired. And he was hired even after admitting on his background questionnaire of being involved in domestic violence in the salt selling Oh, buying drugs, and there were other red flags. And within a few months after he was hired, there were complaints about threatening behavior by him and racial profiling of black residents and 11 months into the job. He shot and killed an unarmed black man. He was charged with manslaughter but was found that guilty instead, Rachel he was found guilty of violating the oath of public office. And sentenced to a year in prison and four years probation. He was released last May after serving seven months. Cheryl W. Thompson of NPR's investigations team, Cheryl, We appreciate your reporting in your work on this subject. Thank you. Thank you, Rachel.

"She also obviously out for this game. That to me is the story here. You know, if you get pressure on Brady, you know that it's over. He's not the same quarterback this point he's under arrest. Rogers Is still very good under pressure, but obviously like every quarterback is wildly less effective even by his standards, so If the Buccaneers comm pressure them, and I think that start stopping the runner number one against the run yours for Carrie, and they get their run stuffing. He tackle Vita Veil back. So to me, that's up front. The Rams could not do anything with an injured Donald. This is a healthy, more dynamic bucks front front seven. Can they do enough? Beat the Packers fascinating matchup. Who do you have one in the NFC championship game and playing in the Super Bowl? Green. David really tight. I did not think by any means together. I think doctors on taking the Packers because I believe that at this point, they're all offensive, just the most well oiled machine in the game. Running the ball. Really? Well, I think you will find ways to get out of the open. I don't think the biggest problem of the fuck down Truster secondary. I do not trust the corners, and I think Carl Davis and your meal, Dean I don't think it's enough, but I would not be shocked if the bugs get pressure on Rogers and they win the game, but I'll take it like 28 24 green bag Right now we're talking about vertebrae, MMA fan site and taking a look at the Breaking news is Matthew Stafford in the Lions have agreed to part ways and they are going to trade their long time Quarterback. Also preview in the A F C, an NFC championship game. We just talked about the NFC championship. Let's go to the A F. C. Let's start with this. Can you remember a player who has improved as much in one offseason as we've seen with Josh Allen? No, genuinely. I can't. Um Hammond went from being a guy that was Exciting because you was erratic. And yea, the big Army got the mobility, but he was someone who would you watch them? It was like a corner using ever do with the next prize is gonna be. We're gonna brought beautiful past the worst pick you've ever seen. Where'd you get rolled backwards? Passover head. The whole thing's a rose and play with Josh on to some extent. It's still it could still be a time the laws he's cut down from any of the other mistakes. He has grown leaps and bounds. I think right now I do the quarterback right there with your fancy throughout the regular season. Adam forth by the homes, Rogers and watching and you could certainly make an argument. Stop threatened. He. He has been phenomenal this year. Now he comes into a game against Kansas City obviously lost it. She's back in week six. He did not play well in that game because he played much better this time around that that could very well be the difference here on Sunday night. All week. We sort of talked about Patrick Mahomes and his health He got through the concussion protocol. I don't think we'll see any lingering effects from the concussion or they hit last week placed on the homes. Do you think we'll see the same version of my homes when it comes to the foot injury because I thought it was a factor in how he was playing against the Browns. Yeah. I think you're right to point that out. Look, my guest is knowing the league. Uh, they will do whatever they have to do pre game to get that told Constable. Now, my question becomes this. It stiffen up on in the game goes on. You know if it's genuinely something is is my home, said on Friday that really just doesn't bother him much anymore that maybe it's not an issue at all. Maybe they tape it, they move on, and then they go forward. But I think I think early in the game as long as it doesn't get stepped on or something like that Video of you, Okay, I'm more interested in. How did you come out after halftime? What He's sitting for 20 minutes, and that thing's starting to stiffen and it's cold. If he can handle it come out of half. I think you'll be all right. But it is something to watch because let's face it. His mobility is one of the biggest reasons he's as great as you get. Yeah, Absolutely. So that was Matt Verte. Ram of fans sided, joining me to take a closer look at the FC and NFC championship game. Tomorrow's a big day obviously goes without saying I'm not telling you anything that you don't know. I think that Kansas City is going to win. I think they're going to take care of business tomorrow. Against Buffalo. I just look at Kansas City is being a better version of the bills. I think they're better it coach. I think they're better quarterback. I think they're better at offensive weapons. I think they can run the football more effectively. I also think that their defense is better. And I think that Kansas City has sort of been waiting for this moment. I think Kansas City is a team. That needs to be challenged. And I think that Buffalo in this a F C title game, I think they were in route to playing really well against the Cleveland Browns. I think they were going to score at least 35 points. And then the Mahomes injury happened. Obviously, that change things. I expect them. Come out and play really well on Sunday against Buffalo, I'll give it 35 to 24 Kansas City. I think they win by double digits first time for this team since November 1st. It has been a long time since the Chiefs have gone out there and beat a team by double digit figures in the game. I think green bait wins. Think Green Bay wins 28 24. I think they rebound from the regular season loss earlier this season to Tampa Bay..

"Michigan has led the entire way, but BG's not going away. One of the Wolverines need to do to adjust to get the job done here in the second well, continued on lock down on the defensive in one on one, and that's probably going to start with Justin Turner. And Daequan piled in. What's happening is bowling. Green only has two assists. So that's telling me that they're playing a lot of one on one basketball or getting it on their own. Where Michigan on the other end has tennis is so Michigan on the offensive end needs to continue to share that basketball. Keep that ball Ha happened and keep it moving around and take high percentage shots. Yeah, 10 assists on 14 made baskets, and Michigan has six different players with the least one assist. That's pretty darn impressive. A good Bridge from the Xavier Simpson era where he was, You know the majority of the assist to whatever is to come for this season. Today's halftime adjustment brought to you by your Metro Detroit Chevy dealers put it indeed and see why Chevy drives the Motor city's so Michigan leading 43 36 coming out on the floor will be Eli Brooks, Mike Smith, Isaiah Livers, Austin Davis and Bronze Wagner. He's back. He's good to go after tweaking his left ankle way. Thought that it wasn't gonna be too bad. He was able to walk on his own power. But obviously this season here I need everybody on this team and Franz, this is important is against. Yes, it is, but that this shows you once again the depth of Michigan hands on this team that they were able to continue on without him, But I mean, he's definitely one of those guys. You don't want to be missing for a long period of time. So Michigan, working from right to left, has the basketball value over the left corner and livers too strong on a triple try, rebound down to plowed and holding green. The Falcons have their starting five out there. Turner, the Feeny Swingle clouded and Caleb Fields. Fields hasn't left wing for the Orange Flash Falcons 21 Win Ball Club last year feed the post into Swingle, who didn't play much of the first half dribbling against Davis. Head and shoulder fakes spins it up there. It's too strong blanks it off to the right rebound, livers permission. There's Mike Smith races into the front court, kicking over delivers extra feet. Left quarters. Wagner for three. No good on the rebound down to killing fields and bowling green. Good. Look, They're just unable to connect. Yeah, you know, you talked about him tweaking his ankle a little bit. I don't see any carry over here in a second ass. Loud, right. Baseline jumper over livers is short, however, a steel on the rebound attempt Justin Turner has and quotes it it from 7 Ft Away. 43 38 Michigan lead dwindles to five. Yeah, a lot of times when you get that rebound, you've gotta get out of traffic in that time dogs got it and tried to go straight down the middle. You gotta get out of traffic. Smith banked hard. He was driving left Base line. Look at the Fling a Passover to Franz Wagner in the corner and bowling green Saturn with its first foul of the second half. Kate the feeding charged with Yeah. Mike Smith keeps pressure on your defense. I mean, You said before you can get adjusted. He's running up your back. So Smith the quarterback it in on the eye and see in Michigan along the baseline. Longer Now, at the point, he loses the handle, but it was because of some contact. Gonna get came with fields on the foul. We've seen a lot of fouls called so far in this game, the referees keeping it pretty consistent, and they're not letting them play as much as we've seen it times. Yeah, well, you've got a lot a lot of guys doing a lot of reaching Grabbing and that's the second time Miss Guiness Step along that line there, so Yep, Smith inbounded livers on the far corner right side and livers had a sneaker on the sideline. So Michigan turns it over Wolverines seventh turnover of the afternoon. They're up by five men and a half deep into this second half. Turner works from the left wing to the free throw line. Floats it up there Well, short rebound. Austin Davis, making his first career start today out of Brooksville Drive all the way to go, but he's found Easy. Already. Three infractions in the first minute 51 this time a shooting foul as Dylan Swingle tags. Eli Brooks and the senior from Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, will go to the line for two. Well, I could tell you one thing. Mr. Discuss that half is that we want to push it up. We want to run. We want to push it up. Not with the dribble but advancing the basketball And that's exactly what Michigan is doing here in the second half is here, where they advanced the ball up the court with the past. No beating B g down the court. Brooks wishes the 1st 44 38 Wolverines one more to come alive. What follows the first Michigan lead is seven to the Wolverine's springing age, modest three quarter court press. Feeny breaks it with these. Now these Falcons get into their offensive set with Justin Turner possessive. He works at the free throw line. Euro step around. Davis lost the handle, apparently last touched by Davis. It'll stick with bowling green 15 on the timer. Michigan plus seven We're backing it in Caden. Bettini gives the Swingle now left side Turner Brooks all over him. He lives so good defensively, Turner able now draw livers taking left side. The Feeny wants three. It's strong and the rebound of the right fingertips of Austin Davis for Michigan. Now to Smith. Up ahead. Eli Brooks, left wing at the free throw line, pulls up and knocks down along to Eli Brooks comes up with the bucket. That's his first field goal. Michigan's leaders nine. You know what Eli? Would he like? Does here affects the game in so many ways? I mean, I know you talk about that's his first bucket, but we'll talk about those hustle plays he had earlier getting on the floor.

The Troubling Issues Regarding Police Use of Force
"As for the police conduct that's did set off these wider protests. History has ben with us a long time. The repeated use of excessive force and killing. which begins incidents, but then worse becomes formerly legitimised in a US criminal justice system that allows and defends it. And we can report that to you tonight as a fact. Because the facts show vast majority of the allegations against police in these instances result in no firings. Let alone criminal charges in the few cases, the duly to a charge take fifteen per year over ten years. It's about ten per year of charges of manslaughter or higher and the convictions for those very rare charges I can tell you. are even more rare. There's a bowling green professor Philip Stinson. He tracks all on-duty incidents that resolving death with policing and he found over several years there were literally zero such convictions in the whole country. You widen out to a fifteen year period of time that he used in his studies. Five officers in deadly on-duty shootings were convicted of murder. The reason why that's all lopsided on the far right of your screen, and this is so vital to what's happening in. America right now is that four of those five were convictions from after 2016. So what little change we've seen came after the black lives matter movement, and after the spike in cellphone, video recordings and other way to say. Be Killing continues. It was rarely ever caught or punished, and the few handful of changes I just showed you. They have come at the margins when there is a combination of an extremely incriminating video and public pressure and often yes, people in the streets so well know law abiding citizen is going to support crime or violence. When we stop and listen to the history and listened to those who risked their lives for social change, while also advocating peaceful methods for change.

Do Animals Laugh?
"If you've ever been close with a non human animal you may think it's obvious that they have senses of humor. Even if most of what they think is funny. Is You know but we set out to learn what science has to say about it. Have you ever tried to tell a joke to an animal? I've done it before I I talk to my dogs. Whatever but this this brain stuff and I'm Christian Sager. So here's the question. Can Animals laugh in some cases. This might sound ridiculous. There are many different types of laughter and generally speaking these types fall into two broad categories complex social laughter where you have to know the context or have a sense of to you know get it and laughter in response to stimulation like tickling some animals such as primates seem to have a sense of humor. Meaning they can respond to situations with a hand. That sounds eerily similar to laughter. You can read numerous stories about Koko. The gorilla allegedly making jokes in sign language and so on. Additionally when adult animals like dolphins or ravens play pranks they're indicating an understanding of humor but laughter itself seems more common than humans had originally thought rats had been laughing. They're furry little keystones off the dawn of recorded history but we only figured this out a few years back. It turns out rats like being tickled and when they're tickled they chirp at a range too for human ears to pick up. It's around fifty kilohertz. We know this. Thanks to the work of Jacques Pants. Skip and Jeffrey Bergdorf beginning in the late nineties at Bowling Green State University. And if we're talking about that second category of laughter. A positive localization associated with touch than the comedy. Floodgates may have just swung open. Dr Davila Ross has been gathering as much data as possible about the reactions. Various animals have to being tickled the list of animals. That make a vocal reaction when tickled include. Mir Cats camels dolphins dogs Al's penguins and more. So what's the explanation? Well according to Michael Owen and associate professor of psychology and neuroscience from Georgia State University. That's my Alma Mater. The case may be simple at least when applied to mammals. It's just a pleasant feeling evoked by touching laughter. It seems may well be millions of years old and existed before human beings. If you think about it we're sort of late to the joke and to be fair. Most scientists aren't calling the straight out laughter. Instead they're suggesting that these positive vocalisations or as Dr Davila Ross rights expressions of joy. And when we ask whether laughter is a sign of intelligence. Dr Pank Sep notes. That intelligence isn't a requirement for laughter. Instead he suggests maybe we should look at it from another direction. Perhaps play in any species can increase social intelligence as research continues. We're learning more and more about animals laughter and

The Cavaliers Just Stunned the Basketball World by Hiring John Beilein
"John B line is not staying in an Arbor reliant is leaving Michigan. And adding to the NBA where he's taking over as the new coach the Cleveland Cavaliers. He's the winningest coach in the history of the Michigan program para final four appearances in his twelve years there twenty thirteen in two thousand eighteen now he takes over a rebuilding project in Cleveland getting a five year deal with the Cavs ESPN analyst docket. I think that if I'm the Cavs. I would much rather have HIV line in some. I don't know guy. That's never really done a whole lot. Now, there's not a lot of guys in college that you can go to the NBA all that kind of stuff the peelings. Here's a great pamper. My son played form is great temperamental players ended development. The the rules of the game aren't going to hurt his style at all because rules are different very different. But I think it's a great gift of the Cavaliers? But as you will know, you guys will get some players if you don't that's a bad roster. And you may get some players if you if you're gonna make this work, no matter who the coaches, Dan with that being said, this is a big summer. A lot of free agency conversation how excited a player's going to be in the NBA to play for a coach while he's had a lot of success. It's been in college. It's interesting. I think that I am gonna change a little bit. A lot of players were always talking about got playing league for me to play with you. I think I think people have seen that's going to differ way. Look, let's be on if money talks if the Cavaliers have more money than somebody else. Go get who they want. But also city talks, and I couldn't personally I mean, I I'm a big fan of Cleveland. I love going there when I was coaching bowling green is just two hours away. But if I'm twenty two years old, I got pocket full of cash twenty five years old. I put cash I don't really Cleveland would be a destination. No matter who the coaches unless I'm LeBron I'm from there. So, you know, the guys that are truly going to make a difference probably gonna go to New York probably gonna go to LA probably gonna go to those cities, regardless. But I'm saying is as much as coaching can make a difference in the NBA, which you can some John. We'll make that difference. He will. He is a very good basketball coach on all sides. Offense defense transition. He is a perk. Perfect to handle all ages, older, younger whatever but come on. You got you gotta have guys in aging. Kevin love a hopefully for him developing Colin sex. And then who knows what you got in the middle between Tristan Thompson, and and the rest, and then you gotta hope you win the lottery you throw throw Zion with those guys. Maybe you got something but mandate like like, I remember when his was going to go the Cavaliers he desperately. All you wanna do is talk. Lebron James and see what the Brian James was thinking LeBron his people wouldn't talk to him. There's no Brown there. And you know, what if you can come in the same time as I'm Lehman, we really good thing for it'd be let in Cleveland is this a risk worth taking when you're a guy who's got an eight twenty nine to four sixty eight college record has been transformative at Michigan and your sixty six for jar. I think it's a absolute win win. I mean, you know, sixty six years old. He's leaving comfort sixty six five years. Let's say I don't know six seven eight million dollar cost of living. Cleveland's not bad. If you're going to do it. You do it. Now. That's it. Right. I mean, you're not gonna be offered this five years from now. So I I like it for both. I really do. I think John made the only choice that he could make it. In fact, he was going to leave. Now, if he wasn't gonna leave if he was married to Michigan. Then you obviously, don't even entertain it. But if you're thinking about it. And you sixty six five year deal. Let's go and John gets a five year deal to leave in and head to Cleveland. And yes. It was a headline about an MBA coaching higher. But are Stephen a Smith says? And you got job be Lana. Head coach for the Michigan. Wolverines is the new head confident Cleveland Cavaliers, no problem there. It's news. Here's my point. What the hell is the segment about it? Who cares? I'm John Williamson with the draft tomorrow that might be different. But since you announced this before we know whether or not the Cleveland Cavaliers going to have the number one overall pick which undoubtedly is going to be I on Winston in the upcoming NBA who gives a damn about the Cleveland Cavaliers the pros not there anymore. Kevin loved Sydney on his way out. Don't talk to that man by keeping them in Cleveland some someplace where he could compete for championship. He's a damn good player who the hell out this day. Give a damn about Cleveland graduates. Bravo. Gravel. It's so touching confined. And. I'm sorry. Cleveland the bras there anymore. No one cares about you right now. No, no, no. Your day is common
