"Brain doesn't have to work so hard for every little thing we do. Like making coffee in the morning, you've done it a million times. So your brain has hardwired that habit cycle so that it doesn't have to expend so much energy on that task. You've done it a million times. You're on autopilot essentially. Or think about when you drive to work or drive home from somewhere. And you don't really remember the drive because you were lost in thought. This can happen because your brain has hard wired the information. Also know that the brain does not decipher between positive and negative cues or triggers. So it also hard wires information in responses from stress. I read this thing, doctor Judd brewer, he is a New York Times bestselling author and an associate professor at Brown university, focuses on the behavioral and social sciences and addiction is in that behavioral sciences, right? And he says the brain hard wires stress responses when people react to certain stimuli in the same way. This creates an anxiety loop. So even if a situation isn't serious, the brain picks up on signals from the body and sets all the system defenses in motion. Anxiety habit loops are formed as individuals consistently overreact to stressors. Once the brain is wired to react in a certain way, it will connect to the same loops, even though they may not be helpful responses to the circumstances at hand. All right, that was a lot. But the part I really want you to pay attention to here, habit loops are formed as individuals consistently overreact to stressors. Maybe you're nodding your head yes right now and you can relate to this way of explaining habit loops.

Online school put US kids behind. Some adults have regrets.

"As the impact of extended pandemic school closures becomes clear some educators and parents have regrets Third graders who struggle to sound out words students who became depressed and stopped doing schoolwork a decline in college attendance pandemic learning loss is controversial but the casualties of zoom school are real Preliminary test scores from around the country confirm that for many students the longer they studied remotely the less they learned nationally kids whose schools met mostly online in the 2020 21 school year performed 13 percentage points lower in math and 8 percentage points lower in reading according to a 2022 study by Brown university but former Los Angeles school superintendent Austin buettner cautions against second guessing the closures he says it's easy with hindsight to say oh learning loss we should have opened the people forget how many people died Experts interviewed by The Associated Press say intensive tutoring year round school or doubling up on math and reading could help students catch up but Harvard economist Tom Kane points out too few schools have been able to make those investments I'm Jennifer King

"Story. The whole generation which is my generation had grown up without knowing that there was an additional ant. The home had suffered with a family. For the family and she had tried her best to care for her family and she had earned their respect. And here, June seemed like an interloper. And therefore, June wanted compensate for that by offering to sponsor two of the families new generation to study in America. Well, duty Lee, I have to ask you, here you are, a Brown university professor. How does your family feel about you telling the story and about what the story is? Do they see this as maybe June, the sister wasn't an enemy, after all? Were kind of grateful that our children, this new generation, is now in America or are they seeing this as they've lost you from communist China to America? That's a very good question. I think there's a little bit of both at the time when I first came out. The brightest future laid outside of China. But on the other hand, many years ago when I went return to the mainland, one of my uncles was saying, I heard that you're thinking about writing a book and basically warming not to air the family laundry to the world. And so over these years, I had to talk to many, many people, and it feels like by asking them to tell me their story, their past, it was not really just telling a story per se. It was really forcing them to confront their own past, a past that tried for many, many years to bury. And so this story it was very complicated and also by putting these two ants story, we actually get quite a full picture of China before and after it's split in. What is consequences on the individual's lives? Yeah. And by the way, while reading, I constantly thought of modern day schisms and Ukraine and the millions who have fled and if Russia is successful in its war against Ukraine, will those people be able to come back or we watching this happen all over again. Yes, there's a lot of similarities. Canons may be silenced for many, many years, and yet, as you can see in this story of the two separated sisters, the scar of separation is still so deep and it comes to my generation. We, in a sense, inherit this kind of scar from a past war.

Will We Ever Get Justice for Enduring the Lockdowns?

"Ramona from North Carolina, Charlie, are we ever going to get justice? For what they did during the lockdowns. She has some pretty, let's say aggressive four letter words in there, some swear words. So I'm not going to continue that. So I'm just going to summarize her question like that. There's a new story out that pairs nicely with Ramona's question. Remote learning according to freebie dot com had an even worse effect on U.S. students education than was previously known. K through 12 students who attended school from home in the 2021 school year lost 50% of their typical math curriculum learning, according to a Harvard study. Quote Emily oster from Brown university said it's pretty clear that remote school was not good for learning. Oh, who would have possibly been able to predict this? Anthony Fauci and all these people, Deborah birx, the scarf woman, did so much damage to our country. Children are at a low risk of severe illness of death from COVID-19 in school transmissions is also extremely rare. Quote, in places where schools reopened that summer and fall, the spread of COVID was not noticeably worse than in places where schools remain closed. Schools also reopen in parts of Europe without seeming to spark outbreaks. This is intergenerational abuse. While grandparents were able to still go, golf outside and see their property values increase their grandkids had masks on being abused in schools. Now, I'm not blaming the grandparents. I'm not. But there were plenty of people that recept the generis and octogenarians that were perfectly fine with locking down the country. While their kids and their grandkids and grandkids in particular have been totally and completely and permanently damaged by the lockdown agenda.

The Economy's Not Great and Young Voters Blame Biden

"Economy is not great and younger voters blame Biden. That's totally right. Things are expensive right now. Voters ages 18 to 34 are getting poorer every single month. Prices are going up. It's difficult to live in a major metropolitan area. Phoenix and Dallas and Atlanta, inflation is anywhere between 20 to 25%, which actually doesn't hurt older people as much. If you own a home, inflation actually is somewhat good for you. Your debt liability or your debt that you own your home, your mortgage, technically stays the same, but a decreases if there are more dollar bills in the economy because everyone has more dollar bills. And so even though your debt is fixed, the amount of dollar bills is fluid, therefore the dollar bill to debt ratio goes in your favor. But most 18 to 34 year olds don't own property. They can't afford a down payment and certainly not right now, with the skyrocketing price of housing across America, not to mention student loan debt, where young people borrowed money they did not have to study things that did not matter to go find jobs that do not exist, but they do have a piece of paper showing that they studied 13th century queer poetry, which I hear is a all the rage right now at Brown university, 13th century queer poetry, very compelling stuff. And there is this general feeling of generational disgust. They know that something is not right. And they're not exactly sure who to blame. They're not exactly sure who to pinpoint for their suffering, but they know that Biden is a good start and says here, quote, the current inflationary spike is the first time many millennials and gen zers are confronting this kind of economy. Coupled with rising rent debt and ultra hot housing markets in the country's 20 largest metropolitan areas, the current affordability crisis is hitting young people, especially hard. In part due to the last recession, millennials were already a lost generation financially. And Generation Z both graduating into a recession and dealing with the pandemic economy saw higher rates of job instability, causing them to dip into their savings more than older generations.

Biden Wrote College Rec Letters for Kids of Chinese Exec Tied to Hunter

"Turns out there's now a piece of smoking gun evidence that ties Joe and Hunter Biden very closely together in the Biden racket. And it is an email that reveals that Joe Biden wrote a letter of recommendation for a crooked Chinese businessman who was, in partnership with Hunter Biden. So this was a political favor directly extended by Joe Biden. President Biden wasn't the president then, but it was vice president. And this is the same Joe Biden who said, I don't know anything about my son's business deal. I don't have any involvement in any of that. It's nothing to do with me, and this has been the left's mantra now. Now that they can deny the laptop, they are taking refuge in the idea well, Joe didn't know anything about it. Well, let's look at what happened here. Turns out, in 2017, vice president Ben vice President Biden wrote this letter of recommendation for a guy named Jonathan Lee ally. And this guy Lee is the head the CEO of a big company, which was in a joint venture with Biden's Hunter Biden's company, which was called Rosemont, Seneca. Hunter Biden, in fact, had a 10% stake in the Chinese guy Lee's company. And this guy Lee sends a note to Hunter Biden and his business associates, which is Devin archer and Jim bolger, and this is what Lee writes. He goes, gentlemen, please find the attached resume of my son, chrisley. He's applying to the following colleges for this year, and he lists Brown university Cornell University and New York University. And then he attaches, quote, an updated version of his son's CV. Now, what's interesting is to kind of follow this trail. Hunter Biden's associate James Bulger responds with, and he's responding now internally to hunter and Devin archer, he goes quote let's see how we can be helpful here to Chris. In other words, what can we do for this kid? And then a few weeks later, Eric schwinn, who is the president of Rosemont, Seneca. This is the Hunter Biden company. He replies to Lee. And he says, Jonathan, this is Jonathan Lee. Hunter asked me to send you a copy of the recommendation letter that he asked his father to write on behalf of Christopher for Brown university. So what we have here is confirmation that Joe Biden went ahead and as his son asked, wrote the letter for this guy and submitted it to Brown university.

It's such a big problem that soon I can start to see people change their profile picture on social media to no longer stand with Ukraine, but instead I stand with black millionaire donors. What? According to The Associated Press, they have a new story. America is so racist. We are so terrible that self made black millionaires, their victims of racism. Emily Haines from the chronicle of philanthropy for Associated Press writes an article here about millionaires of color. And the article is this, quote, how racism still affects millionaires, donors of color. Suppose you're out there that are not millionaires that are working your tail off just to be able to pay the bills, The Associated Press wants you to know, you're oppressing the millionaires. Okay? The millionaires that made it in America? They're oppressed. I could just see it right now. What do we stand for? Freedom against two. The middle class. Why? 'cause they're oppressing the millionaires. What? The Associated Press continues by saying that, quote, the finding of the study demonstrates ways that racism has affected the lives of millionaires of color. From the way they raise their families to the people and the causes they support. So it opens up with this ridiculous anecdote. Again, this is The Associated Press.

'The Diversity Delusion' Author Heather Mac Donald on Young Americans' Move to the Left

"So Heather, I want to ask you about the study from axios that I'd love to get your commentary on it. The essence is that it shows that young people are going far to the left and they're not basically staying. And they're not conservative as conservatives prior generations. What would you attribute this to? You talk about this a lot in the diversity delusion. You talk about the several dynamics that come into play. How would you explain this? Well, it's a combination of overt ideology and prosperity. Decades decades, decades in America of stable society, limited government, extraordinary conquest of poverty, want disease, premature death, and young people have absolutely no idea what the west has accomplished to make their lives so, so cushy and so opportunity filled, but then of course that's the background and the more overt politicization is coming from the elite classes in the education establishment. And that are dedicated to tearing down the west that are filled with anti white hatred. They hate a civilization being too white and male. And they're very few competing voices. The establishment, you know, in the 50s, the establishment used to be viewed as conservative. And indeed, it often was the American bar association, the American medical association. These institutions were regarded as guardians of traditional bourgeois norms, respect for property, respect for the rule of law. And now they are almost indistinguishable from Brown university or Yale University or Harvard in their dedication to this phony ideology that says the white white supremacy and white racism is the defining characteristic of American

It says parents are stressed and frazzled. The interaction of the child would normally get has decreased substantially. The ability to course correct becomes smaller the older that child gets. Perhaps not surprising that children from lower economic families have been the most affected as this resonates with many of the other financial employment and health impacts of the pandemic. You see this is where they're wrong. This is not an impact of the pandemic. It's an impact of our reaction to the pandemic. Those are two totally different things.

Australia New South Wales is registered in most cases in a 24 hour period since the start of the pandemic over 6200 383 are in a hospital and Victoria a smaller surge with 2200 cases Now the good news there is that the active cases in intensive care have declined in both states and Australia New Zealand meanwhile more community cases in two days since Christmas Eve with 126 new infections which is a large number for New Zealand Health officials in the U.S. are holding their breath to see what occurs in the next few days following the Christmas holidays Doctor Anthony Fauci on ABC has heard here on Bloomberg says do not underestimate the invariant When you have such a high volume of new infections it might override a real diminution in severity so that if you have many many many more people with a less level of severity that might kind of neutralize the positive effect of having less severity when you have so many more people to be infected Yeah Fauci says the president's moving more government doctors into areas where the unvaccinated population remains constant And doctor Amish ja the dean of medicine at Brown university says it's becoming a very large problem for the unvexed We are seeing unvaccinated Americans getting infected at very high rates And that's the group I'm worried about because that's the group that's going to end up in the hospital That's the group that's going to end up in an ICU Yeah and sick themselves and clogging hospitals and Doctor Fauci says that un vax group is hard to understand and frustrating for healthcare professionals He says even booing

us for the half hour George is the head of research at K two asset management He's on the line from Melbourne Thanks for being with us and happy holidays George Let's talk first about what's been happening here in the U.S. The S&P on Thursday finished at a record high we are about 21 times projected earnings over the next 12 months if you're talking the valuation story And I'm wondering whether or not let's begin with valuation whether that's a concern for you in the year ahead Yes Thank you for having holidays likewise Yes valuations are broadly full But not to have simplified but we will at this stage of the sample that pre write hot size the investment cycle is still conducive for aggregate earnings to be expanding It's just like expanding a decreasing rate and expanding in aggregate growth among the total benchmarks So on that basis and with higher rates we get some pay 500 should It's about a value actually money forward What's on the net debt to caliber 22 And there are some growth at reasonable price of those value play should be the dominant thing in this equity rotation that will continue into the new year So valuations are changed there is a combination of policy that will be removed in the balance sheet slightly with the fed But this is still a stage of earnings connected Growing above long-term historical benchmarks And that's the value actually trying to save one forward And so it's legitimately so and in many risks around that narrative George David here could you talk a little bit more about that Because in a lot of ways that almost gets you into you alluded to this almost the growth versus value narrative And that's almost a vote towards value I guess over growth That's spot on So it's been happening in the past 6 or 7 weeks again aggressively So while it could be markets are remaining at near all time highs in the western world equity bosses and valuations are stretched around over expected equity boards Obviously with a higher rate environment being priced in and contract future et cetera growth at any cost is amplified risk Therefore determination thing going on And it worked well for people like K two who are reasonable costs managers and also works very well for value play And some long short managers as well So is that rotation about the interest rate cycle rosing in the western world in 2022 And the right action is already underway Well you've been talking about that fact that it's not a new kind of thesis here and I'm wondering whether or not there's the risk that it quickly becomes in overcrowded trade Without a doubt that's one of the many risks of 2022 that it becomes an overcrowded risk And therefore we're going to look at bottom momentum at the moment we're going to the end of calendar 2022 with economic momentum flowing that still above long-term historical benchmarks So that's good for earnings That the slowing of course So you've got a downgrade coming from interest rate

Then we won't this and it turned out. The cdc director had overturned that decision essentially broadened the cdc's recommendation for boosters to match what the fda recommended the entire sticking point as you were saying about those folks who are at high risk of exposure to cova because of their job or their settings and we heard from the fda on wednesday when they approve this they were thinking that included healthcare workers but also teachers daycare workers. Grocery store workers people in prisons and In other settings homeless shelters and so there was a ton of debate but the advisors voted that down yesterday essentially because they thought it really opened the door.

"And then you'll find wanna be like the secret to immortality discovered never really pans out quite that way. But i found an interesting one out of brown university yesterday. It's a new study on political polarization and showed how an aversion to uncertainty is often associated with the black and white political views of people hold. This is true of both people on the left. And the right. The author said this is the first research we know of that has linked intolerance to uncertainty to political polarization on both sides of the aisle so whether a person in two thousand sixteen was strongly committed to trump or strongly committed to clinton it doesn't matter what matters is that an aversion to uncertainty only exacerbates how similarly the two brains the left and the right respond when consuming political content and then the author went on to say that these findings are important because it shows that factors other than political beliefs themselves can influence individuals on an ideological basis. He said we found that polarized perception ideologically warped perceptions of the same reality was strongest and people with the lowest tolerance for uncertainty. Just in general. This shows that some of the animosity misunderstandings we see in society is not due to the two irreconcilable differences in political beliefs but instead depends on surprising and potentially solvable factors as the uncertainty people experience in daily life and they say this suggests that this aversion to uncertainty governs how the brain processes political information to foreign the black and white interpretations of the inflammatory political content. I find this interesting because this fits right in. With what linen solid sqi hitler. All of the organizers right about when they talk about who they are going to target to get into their organization people who have an instability have a leadership void in their life who cannot handle the chaos. The uncertainty this rousing. They just need someone to step in and provide that certainty for them. This fits perfectly with that. In fact this uncertainty is intentional. I did. We did a show a couple weeks ago where i was talking about. How the uncertainty confusion. It's it's all on purpose because the more confused on certain people are the easier they are to manipulate and this study proves that but the fact that they believe that it's solvable. I think that is a positive thing this study actually said at the end they said political partisans may be able to see i had i provided we find the right way to communicate and i think that that is absolutely what it is because the communication. We're getting now is intended to create this polarization and create this uncertainty. So how do we communicate in a way that that lessons that gives people more certainty or more strength in uncertainty anyway..

That's the baby on a Dua Lipa song that's in the top 10 of the Billboard's hot 100 chart.

If you didn't show up with HIV AIDS, you didn't show up today with HIV AIDS and get up there and essentially transmitted disease making died. 23 weeks put his cell phone right now. The backlash was immediate. Dua Lipa distanced herself from the baby Lollapalooza removed him from the lineup. Then more festivals canceled two shows Elton John and Madonna railed against the misinformation in his comments about HIV. I think there's a new moment. There's definitely a new moment. The baby is a big star and Brown University professor Tricia Rose says The cost to his career is significant. At the same time, she says, the music industry has long tolerated and profited from artists like the baby.

That are concerned because they say the FDA hasn't done his full support behind the vaccinations per say they've allowed it to get to market. Are we likely to see more of this from the FDA? Just because of what whenever we deal with these kinds of issues. Well, I mean, the FDA is probably months away from fully approving a vaccine fighter, maybe first out of out of the gate so they may get it first. Moderna there is applying soon, but that process Given the the Gold star standing of the FBI could take months in order to get a fully approved and not just authorized for emergency use vaccine.

Well you have a lot of neurons. The move every muscle in your body is not one neuron must and so you start losing a few. It just starts out being week. That is is is the disease spreads you lose more more. Get more obvious weakness. And in fact it can spread up. The disease can spread to also kill neurons up in the opinion up in the brain which are also in charge of helping move the muscles the motor neurons in the up in the head and so it surfaces late life. I've imagined hawking an unusual case right spend what what one of the frustrating and tough to understand things about a last. Is that some patients. Will you know the average prognosis is death.

That's a long time to wait to do an experiment. You can also learn something you definitely can learn from these disease models where lots of protein is made and we've had lots of insights but there are other things that can be hidden in that model.

"And this is sort of the principal source of gridlock in our federal government today. If Democrats don't push to reform or eliminate the filibuster, gentle sin says it will present a huge obstacle to Biden's agenda. Other progressives, including Massachusetts, Senator Ed Markey, agree The filibuster must go. It's something that's rooted in a racist past and to choose today as a way of blocking the progressive agenda, which President Biden is proposing an environmental justice, racial justice, economic justice, But the politics around this are fraught with a filibuster gone, Senate Democrats could pass everything. From tax reform to the green new deal with a simple majority. But Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell says they pay a price when Republicans next control the government We'll be able to repeal every bill that had just been rammed through. We've said about defending the unborn, exploring domestic energy. Unleashing free enterprise to funding sanctuary cities, You got the picture. A number of moderate Democrats also oppose killing the filibuster. Richard Arenberg takes McConnell's warning seriously and says Calls to kill the filibuster are short sighted. Ehrenberg teaches at Brown University and spent more than 30 years working on Capitol Hill, and it was never a time in all those years that I brought any kind of legislative proposal where the very first question I got back wasn't who's my Republican co sponsor because every senator understands if you're going to get anywhere with you legislative proposals You need some buy in from the other side. Karen Berg is co author of the book defending the Filibuster the Soul of the Senate. With regard to how those segregationist senators used the filibuster, he says it was evil, immoral. Ehrenberg says the behavior was evil, but not the procedure itself. He argues, the filibuster cools the legislative temperature and offers a degree of protection for which ever party is out of power. Progressives in the Senate who are now clamoring to get rid of the filibuster weren't doing that in 2017 when Trump took office with majorities in the House and the Senate, so that's why I say it's short sighted. Ehrenberg says polarization is at the root of the crisis in Washington and killing the filibuster will only make it worse. On the other hand use of the filibuster has spiked in the past decade, particularly by Republican minorities. So Democrats like Ed Markey are ready to push back. I believe that ultimately, it's inevitable that we have to repeal the filibuster, moderates might need convincing. But they'll face a tough choice. Give up on key parts of the Biden agenda or kill the filibuster for here And now I'm Anthony Brooks..

"Be back with us on Monday morning time now the headlines of the Nation's capital and bring in ABC News correspondent Karen Tremors. You can follow her on Twitter at Karen Travers. Good morning, Karen. Good morning. The president the administration. They're writing some very big checks, making some huge promises on covert and vaccinations. Yeah, this is a big pledge from biting administration to buy an extra 100 million doses of both the Visor and Madonna vaccine. So that's a total of 600 million that would have been purchased enough to vaccinate 300 million American adults by the end of the summer. The big issue, though that work hearing, you know is not the summer supply. We have Dr. Job from Brown University, one of the top public health experts. It was on Good Morning America this morning, and he was saying that he's not concerned about the summer. He's not concerns about the the long term supply issues he's saying. At that point, we might have more doses than we know what to do with, but the supply right now the next couple of weeks and months is going to be so critical, and that's what governors air saying to sew on that point. We heard from the president yesterday that the ramp up this vaccine supply to 10 million doses a week and increased About 1.4 million doses that would go out. That is not necessarily a game changer on the supply issues that was always expected. That's where it should be. Right now. There's a big thing. I think that there's gonna be a positive reaction to is this three weeks forecast that the administration is promising to give governors mayors, local leaders tribal leaders because we're also hearing that they can't figure out how do you make appointments to three weeks out? If you don't know how much supply you're going to have But promising a three week assessment of forecast so they can plan a little bit better and that I think might ease some of the appointment issues that we're starting to see. And they can have a better sense of how many people they can vaccinate and do as many people as possible. Granted, I've only been in office seven days. You know, technically, six days they've been working. They're still trying to figure out exactly how much vaccine they have on hand, aren't they? Yeah, This is a big question the other day. What is the supply We're looking at right now. How much and it was not amazing Answer. Interestingly, from the administration, you know, we were hearing that from the president himself yesterday and a lot of criticism of the previous administration President Biden said the vaccine program is in worse shape than we anticipated or expected. He said. The brutal truth is going to take months before even the majority of Americans get vaccinated, so urging patients but on the other hand saying, You know we're trying to do this and ramp up supply and get things out there so that we're in a different situation Come the summer and we should have a lot more information. I believe today is the first official new Covad press briefing that they're going to do what, three times a week. Yeah, That's what they're saying. These will be virtual briefings a very different than what we saw with the Trump Administration where everybody came here to the briefing room. And sometimes I mean, I was in one on a Friday night that lasted over two hours. This will be the public health experts. The top officials in the administration doing this zoom as we like to do it. Everything now on I think we'll get a lot of technical questions. And hopefully some detailed answers something else that took place yesterday. We're told at the White House President Biden continuous foreign policy outreach Yesterday, we're told he spoke with Vladimir Putin. He did the first phone call with the Russian president, and they agreed to extend by five years the new start treaty. It's the last major nuclear arms agreement between the U. S and Russia. This is a very significant move. The Trump Administration had failed to reach an agreement to extend that after a lot of tense negotiations specifically over whether or not China should be in it. Trump administration said. Yes, Russia said No. But this existing agreement that was put in place years ago during the Obama years. It is set to expire on February 5th so the clock is ticking, and the White House said that President Biden and Putin agreed to have their teams work urgently to get this done by that deadline. All right, Karen. Thank you very much. We will talk tomorrow morning. Great game, All right, 8 45 Karen was talking about We started off discussing the big promises that this White House is making President Biden, making those big promises is saying that he believes they will be able to deliver enough vaccines to the states by this summer for a two dose resident for 300 million Americans to get both doses of vaccine Now we mentioned earlier, Johnson and Johnson of the company's CEO said early this morning. I think it was last night. That he hopes by maybe Sunday or Monday to release data of their phase three trial 45,000 people. This is a single dose vaccine that could be kept in a regular refrigerator on maybe apply for emergency use authorization by the end of next week. You know the process. We've been through it a couple times, so maybe by the end of February, we will have a third vaccine available, and Johnson and Johnson would have 100 million doses available to send out to the states. Immediately as well. So Karen mentioned we might if things work out the way the administration is promising by this summer have more vaccine than we know what to do with Promising enough vaccine for 300 million people, to, uh, to be vaccinated. We have what now? 328 Million. Something like that population. The vaccines right now only approved for for adults basically, 1, 16 and up 1 18 and up. Um and we know that not everybody is gonna want to be vaccinated. Latest numbers I've seen are between 64 72% of the public would either be willing to be vaccinated immediately or sometime soon, Eh? So we hope we could get to those numbers and maybe we do get to you know the I'm still for back in October. I think Have been targeting Labor Day weekend planning on throwing a block party Labor Day weekend to officially you know, start to mark the end of this thing, so let's hope we could keep that up. 8 47 on NewsRadio, 6 10 W Y O D.
