I'm play Collins gave a bike and scholars have long endorsed openness to ideas now more colleges want to fuel that flow of new perspectives by discouraging students from using social media to over engineer their choice of roommate risk may rise but the main alternative random pairings but so can rewards as campus administrators have long argued people ought to attend college not only to get a degree rights alley along the Atlantic Nick but also to transcend their comfort zone by engaging with people disciplines and ideas that diverge from what they're used to. That's no less important when students students shift into service years one response there a pilot program in San Jose California that encourages empty nesters to make room for housing hungry kids kids who stipends can't cover rent but who can provide companionship and exchange views. It's kind of perfect natural fit.

North Carolina has long flirted with being a purple state. It went for Barack Obama by a sliver in two thousand eight but went red in the next two presidential races. The governor is a Democrat. Both senators are Republicans which explains why both parties are treating Tuesday's days special election for North Carolina's ninth Congressional district as a bellwether for twenty twenty.

Donald Trump abruptly ended the talks on Saturday with a string of twitter messages the reason the Taliban killed twelve people last week including including an American soldier with so little regard for life. The terrorist group could hardly be expected to make good on a deal that would have required a ceasefire leading to withdrawal of United States forces.

Float On: US-Ukraine Relations, Google Cache, Swimming Cows
"It's Thursday November fourteenth. Welcome to skim this or breaking down the most complex stories of the day and giving you the context kind of white matter Ukraine Rain Ukraine Ukraine's. It's all the rage these days at the impeachment inquiry on Capitol Hill. We'll explain why the diplomats your hand from lately are so concerned about the. US's west is relationship with Ukraine. Then why do go is hoping you'll fill up your google cache off with cash money and finally apparently wild cows are better swimmers than we are. We're here to make your evening smarter. Let's skim this. Today's episode is brought to you. Buy Quip unless you're months. Long media cleanse ended. Today you probably know that. The impeachment inquiry hearings into the president have gone public. They begin yesterday and pick up again tomorrow and continue all next week. It's basically Ukraine all day every day everyone testifying is an official or diplomat. Who in one way or another is connected to US policy on Ukraine? So today we're going to take a step back and look at why Ukraine has been so so important to the US and how the impeachment inquiry is showing how that long-term relationship is being put to the test. I it's important to understand that the. US and Ukraine go way back during the Cold War. Ukraine was behind the Iron Curtain. That was a term used to describe the boundary three of Communism in Europe on one side of the curtain was Western. Europe on the other side was the Soviet Union now Russia and places under its influence like eastern Germany Hungary Poland and Ukraine after the fall of the Soviet Union the US stepped up to help. Ukraine develop a free market economy and and build its democracy from the ground up that included helping fight corruption in Ukraine and normalizing trade relations to give Ukraine's economy a boost in Ukraine. Crane took steps to help the US out to in the nineties. Ukraine give up its nuclear weapons stockpile which had been built during the Soviet era to attack the US. Let's talk about symbolic then in two thousand three Ukraine even deployed troops to support the war in Iraq and for a few years had the fourth most troops of any country in that war that definitely one them so. US Brownie points in late. Twenty thirteen Ukraine was even toxic joined the European Union Union and take a step even further from Russia but then Ukraine's pro. Russia president made a controversial decision to call off talks with the EU flaw. Aw Thousands of people flooded the streets in protest and the global media was captivated that became known as the euro. My Don Revolution Lucien. It was a pretty black and white example of Ukraine being pulled in two directions between its historic ties to Russia and a possible future closer closer to Europe the US landed really strongly in favor of Ukraine moving towards Europe Republican US Senator John McCain McCain even showed up at the protest to make that point extra clear here he was invited shot by the Guardian free world is with you. America is with with you. I am with you. Should lies in Europe after months of protest. Ask Ukraine's pro. Russian president fled the country. But that was hardly the ended the drama because Russia was about to get involved in Ukraine and a whole new way in early. Two thousand fourteen. Russian troops quietly deployed to Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula. Which is on the Black Sea and in a matter of days Russia pulled off what some say is the most successful invasion of territory in modern times by mid-march Russia declared the territory to be? Its own a lot of countries condemned that as a legal but Russia's kind of had the last laugh here since it still controls in the next month russian-backed troops started hearted seizing government buildings in territory in eastern Ukraine before a full on war between these troops in the Ukrainian army broke out Russia's invasion of Ukraine cuss people to start wondering what Russian President Vladimir Putin might do next and who else might be at risk to push back against Russia the US and its partners in Europe did a few things first. They poured billions of dollars of economic insecurity aid into Ukraine. Second Washington put sanctions on Russia to try to hurt its economy and send a message in Twenty fifteen president. Obama went to the UN to to spell out what that message was. We cannot stand by one. The sovereignty and territorial integrity of a nation is flagrantly violated. That happens without consequence in Ukraine. mm-hmm it could happen to any nation gathering here today but in terms of actually helping Ukraine fight back against Russia. President Obama had a more mixed record occurred even though Congress gave you permission to sell lethal weapons to Ukraine in twenty fourteen. That didn't happen and Obama was criticized for not sending Ukraine Equipment Whitman. It could use on the front lines which brings us to some of the Ukraine related drama. We're learning about during the impeachment inquiry. When president trump came into office? They promised to change things and do it. President Obama didn't in late twenty seventeen his administration gave the thumbs up for the US to sell Ukraine key. Battlefield weapons events like a lot of past. US policy's crane this move got. BIPARTISAN SUPPORT The Washington. Post editorial board called the decision a good example. President Ronald Reagan's peace through strength mentality from the Cold War. So that made it all the more surprising would nearly four hundred million dollars in. US military aid to Ukraine. Suddenly put on hold this year. This is one of the things that the impeachment inquiry has been all about according to some officials and diplomats who testified so far they believed the reason was because president trump wanted Ukraine to launch an investigation into Joe Biden's son and others and that Ukraine wouldn't get the aid until that happened and the official explanation from the White House. Different trump has defended calling for these investigations. Because he says we're just trying to fight corruption plain and simple and he's right in the fact that the US has been helping Ukraine fight corruption for years but if the US is new policy was conditioning military support on fighting corruption. That was apparently the news to some of our top diplomats including the US Acting Ambassador to Ukraine who testified yesterday other. Ukraine experts are equally worried about the administration's nations sudden shift in rhetoric behind closed doors and now publicly Nina. Janko Ed's is a fellow at the Wilson Center an expert on democracy in Eastern Europe for a long time. Ukraine has enjoyed bipartisan support on Capitol Hill from the hearings yesterday. I wonder if that is still the taste. Because we're seeing Ukraine be painted as this absolutely hopelessly corrupt nation. When in reality the United States has been the main partner for the past thirty years? In order to bring Ukraine's democratic reforms to fruition and without the US's support on that front it may be harder for Ukraine to to achieve the democratic reforms. It's been hoping for and which many people think are in the US's best interests so what's the scam. The the impeachment inquiry into president trump is putting Ukraine into the headlines. Big Time in the history here matters the. US has been a top supporter of Ukraine since its independence pendants in the ninety. S and bipartisan support for Ukraine became even more visible after Russia invaded Ukraine and twenty fourteen. That war is far from over. which helps ops explain? Why jonquet says the trump administration's decision to put military aid for Ukraine on hold came as such surprise? Thirteen thousand people have died because because they want a right to self-determination territorial integrity sovereignty and the right to live their lives than dignity and have their voices be hurt by neither government. I can't think of anything more American than that. One person who may be able to shed more light on the shifting dynamics in the US Ukraine relationship is Marie Ivanovich. She's the former. US Ambassador to Ukraine who was reportedly called back from her post earlier this year by the trump administration for political reasons. And she's she's the next witness being called to testify at the impeachment inquiry. You can catch on C. Span Tomorrow Morning Brighton. Early at nine. Am Eastern TGIF AGI APP.

GSMC Weird News Podcast Episode 256: Wait...What? And Happy Accidents
"Is Weird odd strange or just plain? Bizarre is really your cup. Then the golden state media concepts weird news. Podcast will give you. That can't believe it will listen for yourself as we delivered the strangest news. You'd deathly you won't find on CNN. Or it's the golden state media concepts weird news. Podcast hello and welcome to the G. S. MC Weird News podcast brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I am your host. Sarah and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend whether that was A weekend of fun or weakened of relaxing or Productive weekend or combination of all. Three of those. Whatever is a good weekend to you. I hope you're able to achieve that. My hubby celebrated his fiftieth birthday over the weekend. So that was fun. Although we had a million people in our house was actually seventy five but for me. A GIANT INTROVERT. Seventy five feels like a million all very nice people. Don't get me wrong but I'm like so. Many people hubby was totally in his element though he is a massive extrovert in loves that kind of stuff. But we are not here to talk about whether or not My husband and I are introverts extroverts. We are here to talk about Weird News and our first story is one that comes about because it is the fiftieth season of Sesame Street which started on November ninth and this is sort of a side note but they had a a fiftieth. The Premiere of the fiftieth season started a pre premiered. Excuse me the on HBO. I can't speak which I think is weird itself and Sesame Street An. Hbo should not be in the same sentence. But okay I mean you know it. Sesame Street meets game of thrones or something like that whatever but anyway it premiered on. Hbo November ninth so well. First of all the Hubby end sesame street or the same age. That's kind of cool. But I love Sesame Street. I grew up with sesame street. I watched it after school. We did not have PBS. When I was growing up but the one of the local businesses in my hometown actually paid to have it on regular television so that people could watch it. Maybe it wasn't the hometown. Maybe it was the whatever wherever the wherever the station was probably it was in the bigger town. Seventy five or so miles away doesn't really matter. Somebody enabled me to watch sesame street and for that I am grateful anyway. I Keep Seeing Sesame Street Fiftieth Anniversary News on my social media feeds and one thing that POPs up often is the is a picture of the original cast which makes sense because it is an anniversary so they show that first season in the original cast an Oscar. The grouch in those first pictures is orange orange. Now if you know Oscar the grouch if you are a fan of sesame street even if you're not a fan of sesame street you probably know that Oscar. The grouch is green and it turns out that he was orange in the first season in nineteen sixty nine and then starting in nineteen seventy. He became green even more interesting. I think is that in the initial drawings for Oscar the Grouch Jim Henson envisioned him as purple so Oscar. The grouch went from purple. Not In real life. But you know imagined as purple to Orange for a season and then green and this was explained that he When he when he came back the second season he was green it was explained that he He changed a green because he spent so much time in a on a visit to the to swamp mushy muddy expensive time there that he became covered in slime and algae and it just apparently stock. And that's why he's greenwhich honestly makes sense for Oscar. Oscar is aim up at who lives in a trash. Can if you are not familiar. He has an endless supply of trash. He is grouchy as his name implies. But also I learned in doing a little looking into this orange. Degreen mystery that Grouch describes his overall attitude but it also refers to his species. Yes grouch is his species and there are other grouches if you If you've watched throughout the years than other other members of the grouch family or maybe the garage species if they're not related show up at Oscar's trash can and are equally as grouchy. Usually as Oscar is so Oscar has these collection of seemingly useless junk. But sometimes it actually comes in handy and he what I like about. Oscar is that he's grouchy. He's unhelpful. He doesn't like anybody and yet all of the people in all the people all of them up until the children on sesame street a people children are people all the adults up. It's only children on Sesame Street. Still Love Him and accept him and go visit him and help him with his problems. And he's he's the kind of like your in that way. He's a little bit of a misfit but he is still beloved by the people who surround him so He is played. He has been played by Caroll Spinney From the first season he caroll spinney also does the voice of Big Bird Although now Oscar the grouches been voiced by Eric Jacobson. Since two thousand fifteen caroll spinney does some occasionally still do Do that voice. Ah Interestingly enough. Oscar apparently hasn't alias One of his other names is oskoui which is grunge grown jettas. Pet name for him and Yeah I forgot that there was a girlfriend that he that grunge ETA was his girlfriend. How could I forget that? That's terrible So it turns out that Initially the puppet characters on Sesame Street did not actually appear on sesame street itself but were relegated to the intermediary segments Then Creator Jim. Henson wanted them to be more of an integral part of the series. Thank goodness suggesting a giant bird and creature living in suggesting a diet bird creature living in the neighborhoods trash can so the character of Oscar. The grouch was developed by sesame. Street head writer John Stone and Hanson and was based on the personality of a magnificently. Rude restaurant owner. Woo wonder who that was As I said puppeteer Caroll spinney found inspiration for the voice in the driver of New York City. Taxi that he took to the studio. Jim Henson credits. The characters name to the owner and namesake of Oscars salt of the sea. According to Jim Henson's biography Henson and Johnstone Frequented Oscars salt of the sea. Hens office was on east sixty seventh street just around the corner from Oscars salt of the sea on Third Avenue in the early nineteen sixties. Hinson in stone often had lunch there and observe the owner Oscar carp dressed in black looked unkempt and had a gruff disposition And then as I mentioned. Oscar remained orange for the first season of Sesame Street and then changed to green which became his permanent color I'm having less difficulty picturing him as orange and Purple Oscar got should not be purple. According to Sesame Street's Robert W moral Oscar was created to indirectly demonstrate racial and ethnic diversity since his manners and tastes were different from those of the other characters. His creators hoped to address social issues by using his differences as a metaphor for racial and ethnic differences some viewers however saw Oscar as a surrogate for poor urban Americans during the early seasons. So I learned a ton about Oscar. The grouch because he showed up in a bunch of pictures all my news feed being orange and I am very excited. I was always fascinated with Oscar's trash can as a kid. It was on par with snoopy's Doghouse like you rarely saw inside the trash can but every once in a while you'd get a glimpse get glimpse of snoopy's Doghouse and good glimpse of Oscar's trash can and I I don't WanNa say lived for those moments but Every time every time Oscar was on I wanted to know what was going on in his trash can. So it's kind of like the Tartus. It appears to be a normal sized trash can on the outside but it's actually bigger on the inside and It was notably revealed in the film the adventures of Elmo in grouch land An Oscar has noted through the years that it boasts such amenities as a farm swimming pool. Ice Rink Bowling Alley and the piano. Oscar could occasionally be seen rotating While the sending into his trash can implying. A spiral. Staircase other items included Slimy Oscar's pet worm who has a baby sister named sloppy fluffy on Elephants that's right. You always hear floppy trumpeting running around in the trash can Oscar's shoes and dimension gate to grow land. Usa. That's a little with a little further beyond my my watching time but Graceland is of course Oscar's hometown because where else would he be from? It also contains most likely. Many boatloads of trash will yeah of course as stated on multiple occasions the trash can also has a back door. Love it we're going to go ahead and take our first break of the podcast and when we go when we come back. We're going to be talking about the accidental origins of Plato.

Welcome back to the GS MC weird news podcast so before the break of course we were talking about the origin stories of Oscar. The grouch against the fact that he started out as orange originally thought of as purple and has been green philosophy. Forty nine years and our second segment is another origin story of sorts and it is one of those one of those stories origin stories that begins an accident and then turns into something that we are all very familiar with. Well probably very familiar with. And that is Plato. I'M GONNA guess that most of us have played with Plato at some time at some point in our lives. Have you ever wondered where it came from or why it came about this Comes from an article in Smithsonian Dot com that popped up somewhere recently for me and I was like Oh origins of Plato. It was an accident so founded in one thousand nine hundred twelve A Cincinnati Company called Couteau Had A A primary product. That was a soft pliable. Compound used for wiping sweat from wallpaper and It was no longer in demand than the firm's future then looked bleak. Fortunately the sister-in-law of one it's one of its principles had an idea. Let kids play with it? Which in itself is interesting. I mean you have a soft pliable compound used for wiping soot from wallpaper. No clearly nineteen twelve was different than twenty twelve because in two thousand twelve. Probably that would not have been the first thought and if somebody had said let the kids play with it People would freaked out. Oh my gosh is toxic. What are they eat at? What's going on you know? We can't let them play with wallpaper. Soot WIPING WHATEVER. It was but no and You know we don't have a lot of sit on our wallpaper now anyway because of the differences in heating but this was the idea. Let kids play with it and so a little background. Couteau products had become the largest wallpaper cleaner manufacturer in the world in the early twentieth century but Fortunes began to change in the nineteen fifties. Oh so it was. Sorry excuse me. It was founded in nineteen twelve. It was not recommended but still even in the fifties They wouldn't have been concerned about children playing with the you know. They were chewing on lead paint. They didn't always bad anyway. Fortunes began to change for the company in the nineteen fifties with the transition transition from heating with dirtier coal to cleaner oil gas and electricity. That city build up on the wallpaper was no longer an issue in many households. Joseph mcvicker was trying to turn around the struggling company when his sister in law read an article about how wallpaper cleaning cleaner could be used for modeling project. Associate wasn't even actually her idea. Sister-in-law Kaysone fall a nursery school. Teacher tested the nontoxic material with children. How did they know it was nontoxic? I don't know anyway She tested it with children. Who loved molding it into all kinds of shapes? She told mcvicar of her discovery. And even suggested a new name. Plato so brilliant Good job sister-in-law and she even got to name it which is cool. It's a tale of technological obsolescence with a happy ending says Christopher bench vice president of collections at the strong National Museum of play in Rochester. New York fortunately. The sister-in-law realized it would make a better toy than cleaning product that turn the company's fortunes around. That's I think that's fascinating. They went from producing a cleaning product to manufacturing what would be marketed. As a toy that's different advertising of stuff So now of course most of us know what Plato is. You comes with all kinds of different accessories and accoutrements for playing with it and making it a new different things. It's now owned by Hasbro. And this accidental. Invention has grown into a worldwide franchise. That is probably as much a part of kids lives as anything else. I mean. That's kind of conic. Childhood Thing right and even if you don't have actual Plato. Maybe you have the homemade. Plato which is slightly different but still fun to play with and you can eat it. It's very salty but you can eat it. According to Fortune magazine Plato has sold more than three billion cans since its debut as a child's toy in nineteen fifty-six eclipsing its previous existence as a wallpaper cleaner by light years. That's more than seven hundred million pounds of Plato. Urban Legend. Has It that if you look at all of the Plato compound created since Nineteen fifty-six and put it through the Plato Fun Factory Place that you could make a snake that would wrap around the world. Three Hundred Times writes Hasbro on the Plato site. The DOE was inducted into the National Toy Hall of fame at at strong at the strong in nineteen ninety eight in addition to the soft pliable compound it. We all know and love. The product line has grown to include. Plato Touch Plato. Kitchen creations plato shop and learn Dough Vinci an arts and crafts toy system for making artistic creations and many more see when I was a kid. No Vinci just you know Plato and don't really have the the the stuff that went with it. We just got Plato. And then he'll you you'd scoop it out of Canada. Get All under your fingernails and that was always kind of gross plato. If you're not. Has that kind of strange smell. It wasn't my favorite smell as a kid. Some people really like it but it wasn't. My favorite smell is the kid. Then it gets stuck on your fingernails and then you'd smell it for the rest of the day but I'm not saying I didn't like Plato. Don't don't don't take that from what I just but there are also Co branding extensions that feature my little Pony Disney Princesses Star Wars and Disney's frozen characters and play sets. Now there are new compounds that have just hit the market. Plato Putty Foam Slime Cloud and crackle. I have not played with any of those now. I must find a child who has them and get invited for a play date. Who WHO HAS PLATO? Crackle wants to invite me over anyone. Okay let me know So quote looking at key consumer insights over the past couple of years. We have seen a growing desire for new ways for children to express their creativity and cultural trends like the viral sensation. Slime has become amongst today's kids and tweens an helped inspire the launch for this year. And this is from Adam. Kleinman Hasbro's vice president of global brand marketing. And he told that he he said that quote is was told to the huffpost in September original originally available in white only in Nineteen fifty-six Boring Plato soon expanded to include basic colors red blue and yellow. It's now sold in a multitude of us of course as a kid I always wanted the neon ones but usually we just got the primary colors but So some of those. Those Hughes include Rose Red Purple Paradise Garden Green and Blue Lagoon. I WanNa be the person that names things like crayons and Plato and paint. How do I get that job? I need to look into that things. Just have such fascinating interesting names. The putty line includes metallic and glittery tints. The recipe has gone through minor modifications over time at one point. The amount of salt was reduced so the product would not dry out so quickly but for the most part the mixture has remained the same and I know it is nontoxic But still it's got that smell. I don't think you should eat it. According to Bench Ziaul is the mother of this time tested toy that is k. the sister-in-law for her students in nursery school. She was looking for a suitable alternative to modeling clay which could be messy and difficult to work with for young hands. Xuefeng had read an article about using wallpaper cleaner to make holiday decorations and thought that might. Just do the trick. She had hard time. Locating a container made by COUTEAU products since manufacturing had already been scaled. Back well fortunately. As the sister-in-law she probably had an in the wallpaper cleaner was already being phased out. Bench says Couteau was headed down the drain at that point Zolfo then took her discovery to mcvicar who formed the subsidiary Rainbow Crafts Company. He began marketing his old product by its new name which was suggested by zoo fall in her husband whose name was Robert and then Woodrow Woodward and Law. Throughout of Department Store in Washington D. C. Was THE FIRST TO CARRY. Plato macy's and Marshall Field's soon took an interest in the toy and begin selling it to sales soared in nineteen fifty eight when Plato was featured in televised ads on Captain Kangaroo. Ding Dong school and Romper Room Bob Kishan who portrayed captain kangaroo would talk about the product Twice a week on his show which definitely increased the sales but If you don't know who captain kangaroo is then you are certainly not of a certain age. There was never a contract but the deal ran for years. L. And I'm sorry. He earned two percent of the sales and so there was never a contract but the deal ran for years. According to bench captain kangaroo was the big cheerleader for the product. The product line branched out in nineteen sixty with the introduction of the Plato Fun Factory Toy. Press that allowed the compound to be pumped out in different shapes other line extensions included animal ark make a meal sub shop and Dr Drill and fill though none had the lasting ability of the fun factory which is still sold today. So what's your favorite memory of Plato? What is the best thing you've ever made with Plato? I am not sure you know the thing with Plato. Were you the kind of kid who insisted that you keep the colors separate or were you? Okay with mixing them together. I always wanted them separate because once you mix them together you cannot unmixed them and then you have this sort of mushy swirly. It could be really cool but no I was that kid that was like. Don't mixup light out anyway. Which type of kid were you on that? Note as you ponder your plato choices in life we're going to go ahead and take second break of the podcast when we come back more weird news. Stay tuned this is your ultimate stop for. Everything's the golden state media concept's sports podcast. Should I say more from the NFL MLB THE NBA TO MMA? It's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports cast. Listen welcome back to the GMC Weird News. Podcast we were talking about Plato before the break and the accidental invention of it and I know I said we were moving on from Plato but I just have to share one more thing that I did not share before the break. I was talking about the smell. That smell the Plato has right. It's very distinct and you know you open it and it. It's it's just very distinct and I don't know what it is because It's a mixture. It's a non toxic mixture. Plato as a non toxic mixture of flour water salt borax and mineral oil. Maybe it's the borax combined with the mineral oil. I really don't know. But Plato has a very distinct smell and it turns out that to mark the product's fiftieth anniversary toy. In twenty. In two thousand six HASBRO created a plato perfume it worked with demeter fragrance to create a fresh out of the can aroma. It was a great gag gift. Bench says but I don't think it did anything more than that. I would hope I would hope not who seriously in their right mind. Wants to smell like Plato. Unless I mean if you're a preschool teacher you might smell like it but you don't want to so to preserve its Papaya. Proprietary Pungency Hasbro filed for a trade for trademark protection in twenty seventeen claiming the product had a unique sent formed through the combination of sweet slightly. Musky Vanilla like fragrance with slight overtones of cherry and the not natural smell of as salted wheat based DOE. Does that sound like Plato. No not to me. The company received the trademark On May eighteenth twenty eighteen so they have even trademark that sent and I just find that fascinating that not only did they trade market and they call it. Vanilla with overtones of Cherry makes no sense but that they made a perfume gag gift yes actual gift not so much okay. Let's away from Plato. Now I promise this time we really well Speaking of sort of childhood nostalgia if you're old enough. How many of you watched Gilligan's island as a kid? I know I did. It was on in syndication and so I watched it at school and It so here is a A Gilligan's isle Gilligan's Island Inspired store it's uninspired. But here's let me just give you. The headline cows swept off coast during hurricane. Doreen survive Gilligan's island style. I really hope that there was one who was like the professor and was able to make things out of coconuts. That would make me very happy. But in all their turns out that are only three cows not the How many one to seven that were on. Gilligan's island so three cows who were swept off the coast during Hurricane Doria managed to miraculously survive in a manner. Perfect for a bovine centered. Reboot of Gilligan's island. Would you watch? Bovine centered reboot of Gilligan's island. That sounds like something that it's got to be a cartoon it would have to be. Obviously live action would be too weird. The cows in question were part of a wild hurt of twenty cows that roamed private land on Cedar Island North Carolina according to the Charlotte Observer. And they were swept off during hurricane during which is got to be extremely scary but they The so enduring hit to the area on September six. A lot of the wildlife was swept off. The island was swept off of the island including twenty eight wild horses. So this is a very sad story. In some aspects the trio of cows were presumed dead understandably until recently in. This article is about five days old until recently when they were all discovered living in the Cape Lookout National Seashore Park on the Outer Banks again. I want there to be a coconut car. A coconut battery or something park spokesman. Bg Horvat told The New York Times. It's a tremendous story of how they made it. If the cows could talk imagine the story they can tell you of enduring that rush of water. See that's why it needs to be a cartoon. Right he added. That must be incredible. It seems the castaway cows managed to swim five miles to a barrier island where they then survived by grazing land. According to the BBC Park Staff noticed the first cow about a month after the storm. The others reveal themselves within the last two weeks now the National Park Service is determining the best way to return the cows to their home with the front runner being to sedate them and take them back to Cedar Island on a boat according to the Washington Post. Now if this really were a of a Gilligan's island with cows they would make the plan and then something of course would happen. So that the folks who came to sedate the cows and take them home on the boat would get off the island but the cows would not because that was pretty much. The premise of every Gilligan's island episode where someone came to the island. That person would off the island. But the the castaways would not. So did you watch Gilligan's island as a kid. Were you a fan? Who is your favorite character? Did you like ginger or did you like Marianne performances. Mrs Will Never gets included in that conversation but I have lots of great memories. It was the flintstones and Gilligan's island and that is what I would watch after school For a while it was. Hogan's heroes. It kind of changed depending I mean throughout the years that syndicated lineup after school changed but that is a big part of my childhood. So you know how I always talk about. You know. People should write a children's book. Will this episode. I'm saying someone should make a Cartoon COW COW COW Logan's island maybe too much and it could be the story of how these cows survived unhappy that they survived. I mean seriously. I don't know how many other animals including those twenty eight horses were if any of them survived but these three cows you know first. They swam five miles and then they survived. Just you know being cows and eating what. They grazie on what they could find. Now they're going to be sedated and taken back home in maybe they WANNA go. Maybe they don't want to go really don't know the answer to that but cows. Gilligan's island good stuff all right. Thank you so much for joining me for the weird new. Gmc Weird News podcast.

GSMC Weird News Podcast Episode 190: Orange Muppet and Accidental Play Doh
"Is Weird odd strange or just plain. Bizarre is really your cup. Then the golden state media concepts. What's Weird News? PODCAST will give you. That can't believe it will listen for yourself as we delivered the strangest news. You'd deathly Oh you won't find on CNN. Or it's the golden state media concepts weird news. podcast hello and welcome to the G. S. M. C.. Weird News podcast brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I am your host. Sarah and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend whether that was A weekend of fun or weakened of relaxing or productive weakened or combination of all three of those. Whatever is a good weekend to you? I hope you're able to achieve that. My hubby celebrated his fiftieth birthday. Say over the weekend so that was fun. Although we had a million people in our house was actually seventy five but for me a giant introvert. Seventy five feels like a million all very nice people people. Don't get me wrong but I'm like so. Many people hubby was totally in his element though he is a massive extrovert in loves that kind of stuff. But we are not here to talk about whether or not My husband and I are introverts extroverts. We are here to talk about Weird News and our first story is is one that comes about because it is the fiftieth season of sesame street. Which started on November ninth and this is sort of aside no but they had a a fiftieth? The Premiere of the fiftieth season started a pre. Premiered excuse me the on HBO. I I can't speak which I think is weird itself and Sesame Street An. HBO should not be in the same sentence. But Okay I mean you know AH sesame. Street meets game of thrones or something like that whatever but anyway it premiered on HBO November Ninth. So well first of all hubby end sesame street are the same age. That's kind of cool. But I love Sesame Street. I grew up with sesame street. I watched it after school. We did not have PBS. Yes when I was growing up but the one of the local businesses in my hometown actually paid to have it on regular television so that people could watch it. Maybe it wasn't the hometown. Maybe it was the whatever wherever the wherever the station was probably it was in the bigger town. Seventy five or so miles away doesn't really matter. Somebody enabled me to watch sesame street treat and for that I am grateful anyway. I Keep Seeing Sesame Street Fiftieth Anniversary News on my social media feeds and one thing that POPs up often is the is a picture of the original cast which makes sense because it is an anniversary so they show that first season in the original cast an an Oscar. The grouch in those first pictures is orange orange. Now if you know Oscar the grouch if you are a fan of sesame street even if you're not a fan of sesame street you probably know that Oscar. The grouch is green and it turns out that he was orange in the first season in nineteen sixty nine and then it starting in nineteen seventy. He became green even more interesting. I think is that in the initial drawings for Oscar Oscar the grouch. Jim Henson envisioned him as purple. So Oscar the grouch went from purple. Not In real life but you know imagined as purple to Orange Orange for a season and then green and this was explained that he When he when he came back the second season he was green it was explained that he he he changed degreen because he spent so much time in a on a visit to the to swamp mushy muddy and he spent so much time there that he became covered in slime and algae and it just apparently stock? And that's why he's greenwhich honestly makes sense for Oscar. Oscar is as a mother who lives in a trash. Can if you are not familiar. He has an endless supply of trash. He is grouchy as his name implies. But also all I learned in doing a little looking into this orange degreen mystery that Grouch describes his overall attitude but it also refers to his species. Yes grouch is his species and there are other grouches if you If you've watched throughout the years than and other other members of the grouch family or maybe the garage species if they're not related show up at Oscar's trash can and are equally as grouchy. I usually as Oscar is so Oscar has these collection of seemingly useless junk but sometimes it actually comes in handy and he. What I like about Oscar is that he's grouchy? He's unhelpful. He doesn't like anybody and yet all of the people in all the people all of them up until the children on sesame street a people children are people all the adults up. It's only children on Sesame Street. Still Love Him and accept him and go visit him and help him with his problems and and you know he's he's the kind of like your in that way. He's a little bit of a misfit but he is still beloved by the people who surround him so He is played. He has been played by Caroll Spinney From the first season he caroll spinney also does the voice of Big Bird Although now Oscar the growth has been voiced by Eric Jacobson since two thousand fifteen caroll spinney. Does some some still do Do that voice. Ah Interestingly enough. Oscar apparently hasn't alias I'm one of his other. Names is oskoui which is grunge grown. Jettas pet name for him and Yeah I forgot that there was a girlfriend that he that Grenada was his girlfriend. How could I forget that? That's terrible So it turns out that Initially the puppet characters dirt on Sesame Street did not actually appear on sesame street itself but were relegated to the intermediary segments Then Creator Jim Henson wanted did them to be more of an integral part of the series. Thank goodness suggesting a giant bird and creature living in suggesting a diet bird creature living in the neighborhoods trash can so the character of Oscar. The grouch was developed by sesame. Street head writer John Stone and Hanson and was based on the the personality of a magnificently. Rude restaurant owner woo. I wonder who that was As I said puppeteer Caroll spinney found inspiration for the voice in the driver of New York City. Taxi that he took to the studio. Jim Henson credits. The characters name to the owner and namesake of Oscars salt not according to Jim. Henson's biography Henson and Johnstone Frequented Oscars salt of the sea. Hens office was on east sixty seventh street just around the corner from Oscars salt of the sea on Third Avenue in the early nineteen sixties Hinson in stone often had lunch there and observe the owner Oscar carp dressed in black looked unkempt and had a gruff disposition and then as I mentioned Oscar remained orange for the first season of Sesame Street and then changed to green which became his permanent color. I'm having less difficulty picturing him as orange and Purple Oscar got should not be purple. According to Sesame Street's Robert W moral Oscar was created to indirectly demonstrate racial and ethnic diversity since his manners and tastes were different from those of the other characters. His creators hoped to address social issues by using his differences as a metaphor for racial and ethnic differences some viewers however saw Oscar as a surrogate for poor urban Americans during the early seasons. So I learned learned a ton about Oscar the grouch because he showed up in a bunch of pictures all my news feed being orange. And I I. I am very excited I was always fascinated with Oscar's trash can as a kid. It was on par with snoopy's Doghouse like you rarely saw inside the trash can but every once in a while you'd get a glimpse get glimpse of snoopy's Doghouse and good glimpse of Oscar's trash can and I I don't WanNa say lived for those moments but I every time I every time Oscar was on. I wanted to know what was going on in his trash can. So it's kind of like the Tartus. It appears to be a normal sized trash can on on the outside but it's actually bigger on the inside and It was notably revealed in the film the adventures of Elmo in and grouch land An Oscar has noted through the years that it boasts such amenities as a farm swimming pool. Ice Rink Bowling Alley and the piano. Oscar could occasionally be seen team rotating The sending into his trash can implying. A spiral. Staircase other items included slimy Oscar's pet worm. Who has a baby sister named Floppy Fluffy Oscar's pet elephant? That's right you always hear floppy trumpeting running around in the trash can Oscar's shoes and dimension to grow land. USA that's a little more with a little further beyond my my watching time but Graceland is of course Oscar's hometown because where else would would he be from. It also contains most likely many boatloads of trash will yeah of course as stated on multiple occasions the trash can also has has a back door. Love it we're going to go ahead and take our first break of the podcast and when we go when we come back. We're going to be talking about the accidental origins of Plato Plato.

Welcome oh come back to the GMC weird news podcast so before the break. Of course we're talking about the origin stories of Oscar. The grouch. I guess the fact that he started out as orange originally thought of his purple and then has been green philosophy forty nine years and our second segment is another origin origin story of sorts and it is one of those one of those stories origin stories that that begins as an accident and then turns into something something that we are all very familiar with. Well probably very familiar with. And that is Plato. I'M GONNA guess that most of us have played with Plato at some time at some point in in our lives. Have you ever wondered where it came from or why it came about this Comes from an article in Smithsonian Dot com that popped up somewhere recently for me and I was like Oh origins of Plato. It was an accident so founded in one thousand nine hundred twelve A Cincinnati Cincinnati company called coup toll had a A primary product. That was a soft pliable. Compound used for wiping sweat from wallpaper. Her and It was no longer in demand than the firm's future then looked bleak. Fortunately the sister-in-law of its one of its principles had an idea. Let kids play with it. which in itself is interesting? I mean you have a soft pliable compound used for wiping soot from wallpaper no clearly nineteen twelve different than twenty twelve because in twenty twelve. Probably that would not have been the first thought and if somebody had said let the kids play with it people would freaked out. Oh my gosh. She's at toxic. What are they eat it? What's going on you know? We can't let them play with wallpaper wiping whatever it was but no you know. We don't have a lot of on our wallpaper now anyway because of the differences in heating but this was the idea. Let kids play with it and so so a little background. COUTEAU products had become the largest wallpaper cleaner manufacturer in the world in the early twentieth century but Fortunes began to change in the the nineteen fifties. Oh so it was sorry. Excuse me it was founded in nineteen twelve. It was not recommended but still even the fifties They wouldn't and have been concerned about children playing with You know they were chewing on lead paint. They didn't know it was bad anyway. So fortunes began to change for the company in the nineteen fifties breath with the transition transition from heating with dirtier coal to cleaner oil gas and electricity. That city build up on the wallpaper was no longer an issue you in many households. Joseph mcvicker was trying to turn around the struggling company when his sister in law read an article about how wallpaper cleaner finance cleaner could be used for modeling projects. Associate wasn't even actually her idea sister-in-law k. zoo fall a nursery school teacher tested the nontoxic like material with children. How did they know it was nontoxic? I Dunno anyway She tested it with children. Who loved molding it into all kinds of shapes? She told mcvicar of her discovery and even suggested a new name Pluto so brilliant Good Job sister-in-law k.. And she even got to name it which is cool. It's a tale of technological obsolescence with a happy ending says Christopher bench vice president of collections at the strong National Museum of play in Rochester. Mr New York. Fortunately the sister-in-law realized it would make a better toy than cleaning product that turned the company's fortunes around. That's I just think that's fascinating. I mean they went from producing a cleaning product to now manufacturing what would be marketed as a toy That's different advertising of it's tough So now of course. Most of us know what Plato is you. It comes with all kinds of different accessories and accoutrements for playing with it and making it a new different things. It's now owned by Hasbro. And this accidental invention has grown into a worldwide franchise. That is you you know. Probably as much a part of kids lives as anything else. I mean that's kind of an iconic childhood thing right and even if you don't have actual plato. Maybe you have the homemade plato which is slightly different but still fun to play with and you can eat it. It's very salty. But you can eat it. According according to Fortune magazine Plato has sold more than three billion cans since its debut as a child's toy in nineteen fifty-six eclipsing its previous obvious existence as a wallpaper cleaner by light years. That's more than seven hundred million pounds of Plato Urban Legend. Has It that that if you look at all of the Plato compound created since Nineteen fifty-six and put it through the Plano Fun factory place that you could make a snake that would wrap around the world. Three hundred the Times writes Hasbro on the plateau site. The DOE was inducted into the National Toy Hall of fame at at strong at the strong in nineteen ninety eight in addition to the soft pliable compound it. We I'm sure all know and love. The product line has grown to include play-doh touch plato. Kitchen creations plato shape and learn Dough Vinci an arts and crafts toy system for making artistic creations and many more see when I was a kid. No no dough Vinci. Just you know Plato and don't really have the the the stuff that went with it. We Got Plato. And then he'll you you'd scuba without a candidate get all under your fingernails and that was always kind of gross and Plato. has that kind of strange smell. It wasn't my favorite smell is a kid some people really like it. But it wasn't my favorite smells the kid and then it gets stuck on your fingernails. And then he'd smell it for the rest of the day but I'm not saying I didn't like Plato. Don't don't don't take that from what I just but there are also Co branding extensions that feature my little Pony Disney Princesses Star Wars and and Disney frozen characters in place. It's and now there are new compounds that have just hit the market Plato Putty Foam Slime Cloud and crackle crackle. I have not played with any of those now. I must find a child who has them and get invited for a play date who who has played crackle and wants to invite me over anyone. Okay let me know so a quote looking at key consumer insights over the past couple of years. We have seen a growing desire for new ways for children to express their creativity and cultural Israel trends like the viral sensation. Slime has become amongst today's kids and tweens helped inspire the launch this year and this is from Adam Kleinman Hasbro's the vice president of global brand marketing. And he told he he said that quote is was told to the huffpost in September original originally available in white only nineteen fifty-six Boring Plato's in expanded to include basic colors red blue and yellow. It's now sold in in a multitude of us of course as a kid I always wanted the neon ones but usually we just got the primary colors but So some of those. Those cues is include Rose Red Purple Paradise Garden Green and Blue Lagoon. I want abusive person. That names things like crayons and Plato and paint. How do I get that job? I need to look into that things. Just have such fascinating interesting names. The putty line includes metallic and glittery tints. The recipe has gone through minor modifications over time at one point. The amount of salt was reduced so the product would not dry out so quickly but for the most part the mixture has remained the same. And I know it is non toxic But still got that smell and I don't think you should eat it. According to Bench Ziaul is the mother of this time tested toy that is K.. The sister-in-law for her students in nursery school. She was looking for a suitable suitable alternative to modeling clay which could be messy and difficult to work with for Young Hands Zoo. I had read an article about using wallpaper cleaner to make holiday decorations and I thought that might just do the trick. She had hard time. Locating a container made by COUTEAU products since manufacturing had already been scaled. Back well fortunately. As the sister-in-law she she probably had an in the wallpaper cleaner was already being phased out. Bench says Couteau was headed down the drain at that point Zeldin took her discovery. Arri to mcvicar who formed the subsidiary Rainbow Crafts Company. He began marketing his old product by its new name which was suggested by fall and her husband Kazan was Robert. And then woodrow Woodward and Law Thrust of department store in Washington. DC was the first to carry Plato macy's and Marshall Field's soon took get interest in the toy and begin selling it to sales soared in nineteen fifty eight when Plato was featured in televised ads on Captain Kangaroo. Ding Dong school and Romper Room Bob Kishan who portrayed captain kangaroo would talk about the product Twice a week on his show which definitely increased the sales in. If you don't know who captain kangaroo is then you are certainly not of a certain age there was never a contract but the deal ran for years and I'm sorry. He earned in two percent of the sales and so there was never a contract but the deal ran for years. According to bench. Captain Kangaroo was a big cheerleader for the product. The product line branched out in nineteen sixty with the introduction of the Plato Fun factory a toy press that allowed the compound to be pumped out in different shapes other line extensions included animal ark make a meal sub shop up and Dr Drill and fill though none had the lasting ability of the fun factory which is still sold today. So what's your favorite memory of Plato. What is the best thing you've ever made with Plato? I am not sure you know the thing with Plato. Were you the kind of kid who insisted that you keep the colors separate or were you. Okay with mixing them together. I always wanted them separate because once you mix them together you cannot unmixed them and then you have this sort of Mushy swirly truly it. It could be really cool but no I was that kid that was like don't make Plato. Anyway which type of kid were you on that.

Golden state media concepts sports podcasts. Listen now yeah Welcome back to the GMC Weird News. podcast we were talking about Plato before the break and the accidental invention of it and I know I said we were moving on from Plato but I just have to share one more thing that I did not share before the break. I was talking about the smell. That smell the Plato has right. It's very distinct and you know you open it and it. It's it's very distinct and I don't know what it is because It's a mixture. It's a non-toxic mixture plato as a non toxic mixture of of flour water salt borax mineral oil. Maybe it's the borex combined with the mineral oil. I really don't know but plato has a very distinct smell and it turns out that to mark the product's fiftieth anniversary as a toy in twenty in two thousand six Hasbro created a plato perfume. It worked with demeter Peter Fragrance to create a fresh out of the CAN Aroma. It was a great gag gift. Bench says but I don't think it did anything more than that. I would hope I would hope not who seriously in the right mind wants to smell like Plato. Unless I mean if you're a preschool teacher you might smell like it but you don't want to preserve its PYATT. Proprietary Pungency Hasbro filed for a trade for trademark protection in two thousand seventeen claiming the product had a unique sent formed through the combination of sweet slightly. Musky Vanilla like fragrance with slight overtones of cherry and the not natural smell of as salted wheat based DOE. Does that that sound like Plato. No not to me. The company received the trademark On May Eighteenth two thousand eighteen so they have even trademark that accent and I just find that fascinating that not only did they trade market and they call it. Vanilla with overtones of Cherry makes no sense but that they made perfume gag gift yes actual gift not not so much okay. So let's move away from Plato. Now I promise this time we really well Speaking of sort of childhood nostalgia If you're old enough how many of you watched Gilligan's island as a kid. I know I did. It was on in syndication and so I watched it after school and It so so here is a A Gilligan's Isle Gillian's Island Inspired store it's uninspired. But here's let me just give the headline cows swept off coast during hurricane. Doreen survive Gilligan's island style. I really hope that there was one who was like the the professor and was able to make things out of coconuts. That would make me very happy. But in all their turns out that are only three cows not the How many one to Kevin? That were on Gilligan's island so three cows who were swept off the coast during Hurricane Dorian managed to miraculously survive in a manner perfect for a bovine centered centered reboot of Gilligan's island. Would you watch a bovine. Centered reboot of Gilligan's island. That sounds like something that it's got to be a cartoon it would have to be obviously live action would be too weird. The cows in question were part of a wild herd of twenty cows that roamed private land on Cedar Island North Carolina according to the Charlotte Observer and they were been swept off during hurricane during which has got to be extremely scary but they The so endearing hit to the area on September sixth. A lot of the wildlife was swept off. The island was swept off of the island including twenty eight wild horses. So this is a a very sad story in some aspects of the trio of cows were presumed dead understandably until recently in. This article is about five days old Until recently when they were all discovered living in the Cape Lookout National Seashore Park on the Outer Banks again. I want there to be a coconut car or a coconut battery or something park spokesman. BG Corvette told The New York Times. It's a tremendous story of how they made it. If the cows could talk imagine the story they can tell you of enduring that rush of water. See that's why it needs to be a cartoon. Right he added. That must be incredible. It seems the castaway cows managed to swim five miles to a barrier island where they then survived by grazing land. According to the BBC Park Staff noticed the first cow about a month after the storm the others reveal themselves within the last two weeks now the National Park Service is determining putting the best way to return the cows to their home with the front runner being to sedate them and then take them back to Cedar Island on a boat according to the Washington. Post now if this really were a cartoon of a Gilligan's island with cows they would make the plan and then something of course would happen so oh that the folks who came to sedate the cows and take them home on the boat would get off the island but the cows would not because that was pretty much. The premise of every Gilligan's island episode code. Where someone came to the island that person would get off the island but the the cats toys would not so Did you watch Gilligan's island and as a kid. Were you a fan. who was your favorite character? Did you like ginger or did you like Marianne porpoises. Mrs Will Never gets included in that conversation but I have lots of great memories. It was the flintstones and Gilligan's island and that is what I would watch after school For a while it was Hogan's heroes. It kind kind of changed depending I mean throughout the years that syndicated lineup after school changed but that is a big part of my childhood. So you know oh how I always talk about. You know. People should write a children's book. Will this episode. I'm saying someone should make a CARTOON COW COW COW Wagons Island island maybe too much and it could be the story of how these cows survived unhappy that they survived. I mean seriously I don't I don't know how many of the other animals including those twenty eight horses were if any of them survived but these three cows you know first. They swam five miles and then they survived. Just you know being cows and eating grazing on what they could find. And now they're going to be sedated and taken back Coleman maybe they wanna go maybe they don't WanNa go really. Don't know the answer to that. But cows Gilligan's island. Good stuff.

The Perils Of Animals Caught In Storms; Trisha Yearwood's 'Every Girl'
"From NPR and WBZ. I'm Jeremy Hobson. I'm Robin Young. It's here now. In Spain. World leaders are gathering for COP. Twenty five this is the conference of the parties those signed onto the UN treaty to combat climate change. The Twenty Fifteen Paris Agreement was forged at Cop Twenty one. President trump is withdrawing the US from that that agreement and yesterday. UN Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez pulled no punches. He said the largest emitters aren't pulling their weight and the point of no return is no longer over the Horizon Matt. McGraw is the environment correspondent for the BBC. He's in Madrid and Matt. We should say that The Democrat Nancy Pelosi is leading a delegation of Democratic lawmakers was to Madrid with this is a two week meeting launches a year long effort. What's the goal or the Mangold? Robin is to try and advance the promises that were made under the Paris climate agreement five years ago to try and get all the major countries and the smaller ones as well to commit to new plans that will be put in place by the end of next year when this meeting moves onto Glasgow in the UK and that is the whole point of all that is to try and ensure that the global temperatures don't rise by more than one point fight degrees which we're heading towards now by twenty thirty if those new stronger plans don't come into place and he said in his talks to reporters yesterday this Gutierrez ars. We're here to find answers for article. Six not to find excuses. What does that mean? Yeah six has been a bit of a bug bare on this process for the last year are so it's about how you use. Carbon markets how US markets to allow countries to trade some of their emissions to other countries so there's a lot of countries with vested interest in this the Russia Brazil countries who've done well in the past outer selling these types of missions want to continue to be able to use these types of the credits as they're called lots of other countries. Say Look you ruin the whole process of you if you try and keep value in these things. So there's a big dispute over that has gone on for a year now and it might. William to Madrid is wrong. This is apparently one of the most contentious things it's going to be hammered out over the next couple of weeks and what about the big hitters China the US the US in particular dealer with a president who has said he doesn't believe in even the theory behind all of this that the climate crisis is manmade and he's rolling back a lot of the Obama era environmental protection regulations. What's the sense there? How does that feel there? Yeah I mean obviously this might be the last year are in which the US negotiating team takes part in this process and so I think for a couple of years now people have been quite bullish about it. They've been saying oh well we'll be able to cope. We'll we'll be able to get on. The world isn't just revolve around the United States. But I think this year right here this week. I think there's a feeling that the big polluters United United States China Brazil and many others who have set their faces almost against climate change that their input is desperately needed. If the world is really going to turn this corner owner bend the curve on this one point five degrees. I think the message from Nancy Pelosi. WHO's been speaking here to say that the United States is still in his is very welcome news news for the conference but the reality is that in a year's time one day after the next presidential election the US is officially out unless perhaps as a change of occupied and we should say the trump administration is being represented by Marsha burner cat whose principal deputy assistant secretary of state for Oceans and international environmental and and scientific affairs? Tell us also about the language that we heard from Gutierrez trying to get across that. We're almost at end game here on this issue. Talking about we have to have the political will to shift taxation from income to carbon tax pollution instead of people people. What's the sense there of how much they're going to be able to accomplish given that we've had report after report and it it starts to feel like wallpaper paper? Yeah that's certainly true. I think what sexual Geno Guiterrez is trying to outline is perhaps the most radical set of proposals any UN secretary general. Oh has ever come up with to try and deal with the problem of climate change and I think it reflects his sense of exasperation frustration. Maybe he's feeling some sense of impotence But he seems determined to drive home his point that the world is not doing enough. The ambition is not high enough and the time is incredibly short. Well and there are young people making that case you briefly about teenage climate activists Greta Timberg of Sweden she. You sailed across the ocean to the US thinking that she was going to walk to Chile where for this climate conference was supposed to be held. It was moved to Spain. Because of unrest in Chile but now she had a humpback on her cameron and sail back across to try to get to Spain. Rain is she expected to make yes providing she can find her sea legs when she gets off the boats in Lisbon. She's due to get in there tomorrow. We think and she's is likely to be here at this conference before the end of the week. She's slated to give a talk to the to the assembly. It's bizarre to think that the little known schoolgirl year ago. Oh may now. Well the the biggest draw at this event this week and perhaps next Matt McGraw Environment correspondent for the BBC in Madrid. Thank thank you so much more pleasure today. Montana Governor Steve Bullock dropped out of the race for the two thousand twenty Democratic presidential nomination former Pennsylvania Congressman Joe. SESTAK did the same yesterday which means Sixteen Democrats are still running for president joining us now is NPR political reporter. Juana Summers I WANNA awesome. Hey Jeremy So. The next debate for the Democrats is December nineteenth and so far only six have qualified. Joe Biden Elizabeth Warren Bernie Bernie Sanders Pete Buddha Judge Kama Harrison. Amy Klobuchar D. Expect more candidates to drop out of the race before then. Yeah that's certainly something that we're watching for. The the DNC has put in place far stricter rules for that six debate. And there's only give or take two weeks until the qualifying deadline while not being able to make the stage doesn't automatically mean candidate will drop out of the race something that we've seen happen with other candidates like a WHO Young Castro for example who still in it even though he wasn't on stage at does deprive the candidates of a really really important platform to introduce themselves to new support would be supporters away to raise more money so that can have a winnowing. Fact and also frankly. The calendar is just getting really laid their about only a couple of months until voting again so financial realities could really start to set in for some of these candidates that haven't been able to break into the top tier and who don't see viable path for their candidacy. CFS point there one candidate who's been kind of in the top tier all along is Joe Biden the former vice president. He is still leading in the national. Polls he's on the third day now of a week long no Malarkey bus tour in Iowa by the way the definition of Malarkey is written on the side of his bus for people who don't know what that means Early on in his campaign campaign he was saying he didn't need to win Iowa. What's the latest thinking? So I'm heading bus tour later this weekend. The former vice president is going through eighteen counties in the state that's clearly a huge investment of his time at this critical moment in the race. We heard the former vice president kind of talk about why he's doing this now over the weekend. He made the case that this is the time to peak in Iowa two months before voters start to really tune in before those first votes are cast. This is when he wants to be making that investment and spending a lot of time there and make no mistake. This is also coming as south. Bend Mayor Pete. Buddha judge is performing quite well in the state and many say that he and the former vice president competing for that same lane of centrist voters for for primary support will. Let's talk about people to judge in an ad that is now airing in Iowa. He is criticizing his rivals for their free college tuition plans. He says they they would benefit a lot of wealthier students. Here is the only one that make promises that we can keep. Look what I'm proposing is is plenty old. I mean these are big ideas we can gather the the majority to drive those big ideas through without turning off half the country before we even get into oft and how concerned are the other candidates about Buddha judges surge in the polls and what are they planning to do about it. I think there is quite a bit of concern. And if you listen to the way he talks in that ad he doesn't say the name say Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. But you hear him clapping back to folks who have bullet plans and big ideas and saying. Hey Look I'm a guy who has this kind of big plans to now when I talked to rival campaigns about Buddha judge and how he's performing one of the biggest things they point to is the fact that while he's rising in the polls in places like Iowa and New Hampshire and polls quite well and other places with older white Americans Americans he has almost no blocking from black voters who are incredibly important to a democratic path to the nomination and he lags behind some of his reiver's like Warren and Sanders when it comes to younger voters. So that's why you see him this week. Focusing on southern states like North Carolina and South Carolina looking for new ways to connect with black voters aiming get that weakness in a number of his rivals of pointed out. Do you think that that weakness among black voters unique to Buddha judge or a lot of candidates kind of in the same level of polling when it comes to African African American voters. That's a great point. I actually don't think it's unique to him. We've seen former vice. President Biden have sort of a strong firewall with black voters particularly a commanding advantage in South Carolina but other candidates out there Massachusetts senator Elizabeth. Warren also does not poll particularly well. Among black voters we've seen Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders certainly improve improve his standing from his first presidential campaign but it would be unfair to say that people judge is the only candidate who is lacking with that key demographic and the democratic electorate. Okay that final ask you about the two new entrance into the race. And how they're doing at this point. That would be former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and for Massachusetts Governor Deval. Paul Patrick yes so Michael. Bloomberg is obviously jolted this race just by the sheer amount of money. He's been able to spend really dominating. The television airwaves was was joking with some friends who are home over the holidays that one of the only political candidates ads they saw on television over. The Thanksgiving holiday was Michael Bloomberg. He's focusing his spending in some of the early Super Tuesday states that he is targeting and those are places that some of the other candidates aren't spending as much time or money and yet as they focus on those folks four contests in Iowa New Hampshire South Carolina and Nevada Asphalt Patrick he is starting to staff up. His campaign has recently announced. Some new hires and New Hampshire and South Carolina to stay teases is Keith has strategy. But he's entering the race a lot later than many other candidates risking the possibility of not being able to get into those debates. Doesn't have enough time or a poor showing in these states that he's targeting are getting that is NPR political reporter WanNa Summers. WanNa thank you in great to have you back at NPR.

She's the country singing legend. There was great excitement earlier this year when she released every girl her first solo country album in twelve years. Here's a little the lead single every girl in this town. Aw Down Stars on Toll Hearts Taunting Zoff EH. This with every girl in this town is somebody's daughter. TRICIA earwood also has a hit food network. Show Oh Tristesse. Southern kitchen now in its fifteenth season. Vince just love her recipes but also her breezy style. I'm going to get to work on a smoky Ailey to go on toffees potatoes which is Super Yummy. So Aley is basically fancy manage. I had to look it up. I'm not sure. And did we mention that that she's married to some Guy Garth Brooks I think only the best selling solo artist of all time this week Tricia earwood hosting the country. Christmas show taking over from her a friend and mentor REBA. mcentire and she's found a few minutes to talk with US Tricia. You're welcome thank you. I'm so happy to be here. What do you think it is? You know of your life experiences that have fused together and created the TRICIA earwood. Who is this artist and also you know an artisan in the kitchen? You know what I I don't know. Oh really but I think what it is not to quote my own album but I really am sort of every girl I feel like I kind of represent most of us. Most of us. Who Cook are not chefs? You'll learn how to cook for mom or dad and I came from a very small town and wanted to be a singer since I was five years old but didn't know anybody who was doing this so I kind of feel like I'm the one who gets to do it all for all of us and I'm as surprised and excited about it. Still Twenty eight years after getting started That I get to to do it and I really am and I think that's probably why people like because they feel like I could be in the kitchen with her. It wouldn't be weird and if I dropped an egg on the floor. She wouldn't think that was a bad thing 'cause she does that too. Yeah well the girl with the wind in her hair up in the ferris wheel when the fair comes to town on the porch under the yellow light crying when the date goes wrong on Friday night. I'm just a beautiful song out. Let's listen to another one. This is Bible and a forty four. Listen he had a southern draw. The red bone never were already said was my favorite Sam. It'd be the last one. Aw Kinda Mansfield be around. Kinda my Sanofi's he had half as wide as he expand your story lack of wagon we all heart and soul song written by Ashley Mcbride and she wrote it about her dad but we understand it was a song for your dad is well. Yeah how so well. My Dad was That southern drawl line really got me actually asked Ashley if I could change. Her Lyrics said every song he sang was my favorite sound. And I asked if I could say every word he said because is my dad. Had this southern accent that was almost like foghorn leghorn say and and so he's gone now but his voice voices what I remember so much about him. It's still in my head and I think the power of a great songwriter is to be able to write something. That is so personal to them. I mean the song is about Ashley's Dad and for it to feel personal to me and this is one of those songs that when I sing it live. It really does connect with especially girls in their daddies all heart and soul. Aw and made of steel. When I was listening to that lyric about your dad I was thinking Garth Brooks? You had a hard act to follow you know because everybody's dad you know if if you have that relationship that's your I love. Would you say Garth Brooks is anything like your dad. I absolutely I mean I do think that I think that's one of the things about him that I love so much is that my dad was my biggest fan. He was a huge fan of country music. He loved and got to see a lot of my career but I always felt like at the end of the day. I was daddy's little girl and I felt veliky had my back. And he he was there to take care of me and Garth has always said. I don't want to take care of you because you need to be taken care of your independent. You do your own thing but I I want you to know that I'm here if you need me. And he is one of the last things that my dad got to see was garth and I get engaged and my dad was like okay. I feel good now now. I feel like I honestly feel like my thought. Okay Gar Scott this oh I feel a song coming onto describes that but did your dad have sparks that flew Lou from his fingertips. Let's listen to a little bit of a song that you have said is maybe something of a metaphor for your relationship with Garth Brooks. It's called the matador thrown thrown rose to the matador not sure why was to in for my was true. Heart was full. I I love the fighter and the bull. Only a woman can a very complicated mom located Ma'am bound his. I heard his cries. I gave him. I told him mm-hmm so we're picturing the matador and again you go on to say you know. His rage is made anything's faithless women wedding ring. Snakes and snails and alcohol sparks fly live from his fingertips. Words like birds fly from his lips. What an image of a Garth Brooks onstage tells more about what what is that? He agrees with me on this. I'm I've always been very dramatic even as a little girl. Before I even had any heartbreak. I would sing these songs that were so about heartbreak. The matadors written by Gretchen Peters incredibly talented singer Songwriter. And for me you know what what I felt was there is something about. I mean he loves me more than anything the world. He loves his children. More than anything in the world. But there's something about being in the musical arena. Narayan getting to do what you do that is unmatched and is something that no one can really share with you. In that moment I think he and I being the same industry comes closest to people can to sharing the railing but there is something about watching him in the ring doing what he does and sparks fly from his fingertips. I mean it is something to behold but you know words like birds fly from your lips to How whoa what's that I mean do you talk about that to you? Each talk about Something that nobody else I mean. I don't even know what it would be. I think one of the things I mean. Everybody talks about got to celebrities being married. And how hard that is and it is the only thing hard about it is because we both are really busy but I think we can that the advantage to being married to someone who does what you due to be able to talk about what you do for a living and also to have kind of an unspoken understanding of the drive and the need and the desire that feed as your soul of why you've really feel not even like you made a choice to do this but you're called to do it and so you've gotta give each other the freedom to be that because that's that's who makes him who he is and that's who makes me who I am. Yeah then that's hard for some people maybe not familiar with that centerstage to exempted in somebody else. Yeah plus you have to put up with his breakfast bowl which I understand. She's in garlic. Tortellini it is and you know what I gotta say. I've been I've been working on the cooking show and I've been releasing this album and I have been just really busy this fall and I haven't cooked at home very much and I told him yesterday or a couple of days ago at home I said the last couple of times that I have walked into the kitchen and it has smelled amazing. You have been cooking not me. And he is really good and he. He's just that guy and he. The breakfast bowl is everything. You would wanna ever eat for breakfast that you could imagine in a bowl plus toward laney and you really need to eat that and then like you don't have to eat for a week because it's a lot it's a lot. You have one of your cookbooks. I wouldn't want to hear some more music including Um you did an album of songs that Frank Sinatra own. Let's just listen to a little of comply with me it if you can use some exotic booze. There's a bar and come fly with me. Let's at SPA flyway. Wow I mean are you at the point where you're like. What else can my voice do? I mean is it fun for you to try something nothing like that and see how far were you could go. Yes so much fun. You know it's like getting out of your comfort zone a little bit as scary but also usually the most rewarding thing in an I had always loved this music my mom was a third grade schoolteacher and we would get home the afternoons and sometimes before. She'd have that little amount of time before she'd have to start dinner. We would watch some of these old movies and musicals and listened to these songs and I always felt like man. I love this music. I feel like I wish I would have been born during at that time in the thirties and forties to do this music and so I I did the record and I went to capitol records where frank recorded. I used his microphone. Some of the guys in the band were had played with frank and I was terrified. You know watching the first day and I thought they were GONNA go. This little country girl is here. This is going to be so terrible and then when I sang the first song. And they're like Oh oh okay. We're then we had the best time so I'm so glad I got a chance to do it now. Love to hear other things that you experiment with. But meanwhile the album every girl is just great and we want to hear a little of one of the other songs. This is called love you anyway. It's with Don Henley in part by the way do you think the end of the innocence was maybe one of the most perfect albums ever made perfect. Okay love him so much. Yes we young okay. We agree and he's backing you up. TRICIA earwood listless jess the key. You any a sublime that's country music. Star Tricia earwood the latest album. Every girl also hosts Tristesse southern kitchen on the food network and she'll be hosting the CNA country. Christmas show tomorrow. Night TRICIA I. I don't know how you found the time I tell you. But thank you so much. Thank you Today is cyber Monday has as if I had to tell you that and we have reached the point where today is a big day for many retailers than black. Friday is that used to be the biggest shopping day of the year for more. Let's bring Jill Schlesinger and your business analysts for CBS. News host of Jill on money. Hi Jill hello you have any money left after the shopping this morning. A little rough between radio hits this morning. We're we're already getting some early retail numbers. According to adobe analytics online sales increased by about twenty percent from last year while shopping at brick and mortar stores fell fell by about six percent is cyber Monday even a distinct thing anymore. Is it Kinda like cyber week or black November December. What what we? What are we looking Kanat here? We know that some large retailer started rolling out the deals as of November first. So imagine this your goblins come down your wreaths. Go Up and and they've gotten very smart. There is a distinct part of each of these days. Mostly because all of these large retailers have tons of data and they they are dribbling out deals based on the day so we know that today cyber Monday. You'll probably see this deepest discount UNA television however an appliance may have been a better bet on Friday. All these things said it is becoming a massive long holiday season for those who are paying attention. I noticed it is something interesting. which is that on Thanksgiving Day? Almost half of the online sales were done on mobile devices. which just made me imagine some people sitting at the Thanksgiving table looking down at their phones and oh by that yes? He's probably may have been cheaper than their therapy session that follows but yes we're shopping everywhere. So desktops smartphone tablet and it's all being tracked now some of us are actually surfing on our smartphones but purchasing on our desktops. And I think that that is really kind of this interesting trend that we are seeing in that we want to shop where and when we want to shop and retailers are actually actually changing their business models accordingly. They call it multi channel marketing essentially just making sure they are where we are. And that's why you will see some of these things that pop up in your face in places where you never realized. I guess there's no concern right now about a recession based on the fact that people are still spending so much which buddy you know if there is a concern and certainly surveys will tell us that people are having some recessionary fears bubbling up. But I think two factors that are really the important number one. We do still have a good jobs market. We're going to get another Labor Department report out this Friday. They're going to be more people employed they're going to see we'll rise faster than the rate of inflation. So that makes people feel confident. You're likely to get something like nine point. Four billion dollars in sales this day day this cyber Monday and that would be almost nineteen percent increase from last year so joe with all of this online shopping. Let's not forget about. All of those packages is that have to be used to send things out and a lot of cardboard being used. We remember that China isn't taking our recycling materials anymore. Where's all the cardboard going? That's a great question. You know the cities across the United States are talking about something called the Amazon effect and We are seeing cities trying to scramble to figure we're to send their cardboard in their plastics. And the municipality said there just isn't enough domestic ability to supply paper mills to meet the demand hand. And so unfortunately this is what's really piling up in a lot of our landfills stuff. That hasn't even been recycled that could be as Jill Schlesinger business analyst analyst with CBS News and host of Jilin money. Thank you thank you freezing rain. Rain and snow in the northeast of blocked millions of people from returning home after the Thanksgiving holiday airlines cancelled or delayed thousands of flights in anticipation of the weather but while humans can make plans to say safe during storm. Our animal friends aren't always so lucky for more. We're joined by Steve Vanilla. He's an outdoorsman and writer and the host of the Netflix show meat. Eater Steve. Welcome thank you for having me on so when a storm system headed towards a place We humans have very sophisticated weather forecasting. That often gives us enough time to make preparations maybe evacuate. What kind of capacity do animals have to sense? It's and avoid storms man You know it really depends. It seems on the kind of animal definitely fish we have a lot of sensitivity to barometric pressure and there were some studies that they work down in Florida where they happen to have some sharks that were wearing the shark equivalent of a radio collar right ahead of Hurricane. Gabriel in two thousand one. They had fourteen black tip. Sharks were wearing transmitters meters in all fourteen of them moved out to deep water off the coast of Florida ahead of Hurricane. Gabriel but then there's other species that seems he's not really care. When Hurricane Irma came through in two thousand seventeen in this hurricane happened to pass thirteen miles away from deer study area hundred one hundred thirty five mile an hour winds twelve inches of rain right and they had sixty dear wearing? GPS collars not only are none of those deer killed. None of those dear change their tune they they acted on that day. The day that made landfall. They acted just like they always act and they win about their business like nothing was going on okay so but for the animals that do you notice that something is about to happen. Apparently do you think that it is about barometric pressure and that pressure dropping and they know that they've got to move. That's the the most people have and it seems like Fisher specially in tune to it You know the Fisher thing called a lateral line they can were they sense pressure and can detect pressure changes changes that could be movement in the water near them but other things as well and some fish seemed to become active and like feed. When there is a high pressure system other Fisher high pressure system might send them off but it seems to be that there'd be barometric pressure that's usually something that we with our instrumentation that we can monitor not that we have a change in barometric pressure of a storm? If it's not that it's something that we don't yet understand about what it could be that they're picking up on and looking at there. There are some wild horse herds in the Outer Banks in North Carolina and people were watching these horses and very worried about what would happen. When Hurricane Doreen came through and people notice it ahead of the storm it seemed that the horses were moving to higher ground and gathering up clusters because one of the things the horses will do so? They'll gather up in groups maybe to stabilize one another and no face of their rumps into the wind and they were seeing this activity on the Outer Banks. Somebody's wild horse herds words ahead of the storm but in one case on Cedar Island. Even even that didn't say these horses because there's a herd of forty nine horses. On Cedar Island Twenty Twenty eight of them were killed by a storm surge from Dorian so even though they seem to detected it was coming and took the right steps. It wasn't enough but there are certain species at one eight winners from storms There had always been Burmese pythons in the everglades may be going back to the seventies but that number jumped tremendously sleep. After some hurricanes destroyed some captive wildlife facilities and freed Burmese pythons. And maybe enough of them to hit a sort of critical mass. An Lao Burmese pythons. The really take hold in the everglades that brings us to another phenomenon that happens. which is that? Sometimes because of storms animals are picked up and moved by waterspouts right like the there could be frogs that that don't usually fly that ended up flying and moving around around in storm. Yeah that does happen. It doesn't happen to the degree to which we sort of as a society would like to dream of it happening and if you've ever seen the movie v Magnolia which ends with this fantastic storm of bullfrogs but there are cases. I mean even in eighteen seventy seven. The New York Times reported on ate alligators about twelve inches long being dumped within two hundred yards near the Savannah River. So I think on one hand you can look in. The storm can come and one can feel empathy and pity in the short term for individual animals. That could be you know. Suffer some kind of catastrophe and die in mass numbers. But it. Also there's this little bit of solace that can be found the idea that these big storms and these events are things that also distribute animals in some way allowing species to move beyond their geographic range and discover new places and evolve into new beautiful things down the road. I guess from a global sort of wildlife perspective it's a bittersweet occurrence when we have massive weather events. Well so let me ask you then. Finally with climate change making these storms more frequent sequent and more severe Is that more bitter or more sweet for some of the animals are going to be affected by them. Well I mean there you're going to do you know a very a large question and global climate change even if it does result in some distribution of species around life is not able able to evolve quickly enough to be commensurate with the destruction that we would see in cases of the Arctic warming. The oceans acidifying acidifying. The oceans warming I personally I can't look to species distribution as being a bright spot in I'm a climate change scenario but you know it's almost taboo to say this but there will be certain species that win from global. Oh climate change that animals that may be are restricted in their northern movements because of severe winters and temperatures change. They'll become big winners In some part of US might someday looking celebrate those winners but it's hard to find anything that like in a holistic sense seems optimistic. Stick great to look forward to for wildlife in terms of scenarios in which we have more and more severe weather and more changes on our planet. well as somebody who spends so much time in the outdoors and focusing on wildlife and we hear about these things I think people think. Oh Wow these. Is these these animals. They're smarter and more interesting than I thought. But do you think that humans have a enough of an appreciation for the other species on this planet. You know on whole as a culture I would say that we're suffering from some dissociation with the natural world You know were increasingly urbanised. I do worry about what that will mean in the future for the conservation movement. If in fact people do move away from the natural world and and become less interested in preserving it I think that that has implications but all in all I find like in my social circles or the people people I spend a Lotta time with. They tend to be infatuated with animals. And that infatuation will oftentimes lead people to think that they're actually smarter than we are. More capable or more adaptive in better evolved to cope but again and again you're reminded of places and times were animals. Just make mistakes steaks and that's an interesting thing to think about with animals is that they can hit a certain age. Certain species like deer twenty years of age but they oftentimes times make a mistake way before that happens in. Don't live that long and I think that it's interesting to start in look at wildlife and that way as things things like individuals who are out there you know attempting to cope with a constantly changing environment and constantly evolving threats. Will I have to say. I've always loved animals but as soon as I got a dog I see all animals in a new way now because I understand just what you're saying that they are individuals that are just just living in this world in the same way that we are. Yes that is Stephen. Ella who is an outdoorsman and host of the Netflix Show Meat Eater Steve. Thank you thank you for having me on I appreciate it and while we are talking animals the Washington Post reports that British and Australian researchers had success in drawing fish back to dine coral reefs by broadcasting the sounds of healthy reefs using an underwater loudspeaker. They saw twice as many fish flock back to the reef. Here's one of the researchers Timothy Gordon. Climate change in warming sees cause more damage to Carl reefs worldwide in the last four years than they have in the whole of recorded history before at the start of my PhD listened to reefs. I compared how they sounded five years ago before that damage to how they sound today and it was the saddest thing I've ever ahead a great animal. Orchestra of the reef has been replaced by the sounds of silence. Gordon and his team say if they can scale up the experiment of broadcasting the sound of healthy thief's they could bring life back to reefs that have been devastated by rising sea temperatures so if the cement industry were a country it would be the third largest carbon dioxide emitter in the world behind only China and the US. You may have heard this statistic nick and it's because the process used to mix cement mixing sand gravel cement binder and water not only gives off. Co Two as a byproduct it requires a tremendous amount of heat that normally comes from fossil fuels. But don't boycott your sidewalk yet because there is some good news. Helium Jen is a solar power. Our company that's developed a new technology that could make industrial manufacturing renewable by using the power of the sun. Bill Gross is CEO and founder of helium. Jenny joins US now and bill. Just take us through this because we know you brought some investors big investors including Bill Gates and the owner of the La Times out to to Lancaster. California we've got something set up there. What did you WANNA show them well? We built a solar concentration field. We're essentially making Govan a huge oven. Who set at two thousand degrees Fahrenheit which is basically one third the temperature of the surface of the sun? And we're making this oven almost like a one acre magnifying glass. It's a field of mirrors. That are all perfectly computer controlled to reflect the sunlight to a single spot. Well we can make these high temperatures news and now use the sun to power these industrial processes like making cement steel making glass. All of these things previously used a huge amount a fossil fuels and it wasn't solvable with renewable energy previously because electricity from solar panels can't provide this kind of heat so we're really excited to try and reduce emissions us and make these industrial processes possible with renewable for the first time so so what these cameras in combination with these panels these mirrors did was create. What you're calling a a death-ray where you can just focus it right on something you might need to hit lake cement mixer magically exactly the the the analogy would be this imagine you went into a football stadium and you were sitting with a mirror at one end and you want to reflect the light to someone at the other end but now imagine all fifty thousand people each have a mirror mirror and they're all reflecting it to one spot? We need a lot of coordination and computer control to get that to happen perfectly. And that's the technology developed computer vision software that could take all all these things and move them very precisely accurately and you said. We went out to Lancaster just a few weeks ago. We've been building this all year long. We fired up and the very first time we achieve these high temperatures these record temperatures. And that's why we're so excited. What about Cement Company? That's not in Sunny Lancaster. California very good question right now. We are going after all the types of factories that have either land adjacent to them at sunny and can integrate with our process that probably is about half of the industrial opportunities. So it's still a trillion dollar opportunity over time. We plan to come up with storage methods and other transportation methods so we can move who've the material maybe to the desert where the sun is great and then moved the results back to where the people needed but for right now. We're focused exactly on what you said places that have the sunny land adjacent and that's still an enormous opportunity. Still more than twenty percent of global emissions happened from that. And we're GONNA target that I well and you know it is amazing. How much much? Co Two comes from cement and how much cement is needed. I mean we just can't right now anyway live without creating cement cement well to to to house the seven and a half billion people on earth and to build the roads buildings transportation everything for them. The two biggest ingredients in our life are cement and steel and both of those release a huge amount of co two because of the burning of fossil fuels to make them and we're enjoying the fruits of of the benefit of those great materials but at a huge cost of the planet one wonders what Joseph Aspden of Leeds England with think. This is the early nineteenth century bricklayer. Glare who came up with this process and now you know cement is just the most desired building material around the world as you said causing this problem You've Said said that the applications for he agend technology will be industrial mixing cement also steal but down the line. This kind of concentrated solar power that you've described could be used to make hydrogen fuel. People are now only dreaming about that. Why would that be such a big deal? That is a huge deal so right now we use hydrogen in almost all Oliver fuel to date all of our gasoline has hydrogen hydrogen is the single best. Fielder is the problem with it. Is it's clean when you burn it but it's dirty when you make it right now. All Oliver hydrogen is made by burning and splitting methane to get hydrogen if we could make completely green hydrogen that would be revolutionary. Well how could you make completely green hydrogen Asia. Will you could split water if you could split water. Water is a molecule of two hydrogens in an oxygen but those are bound together very tightly. It takes a huge huge amount of energy to split them will. How would you split them? What you can burn fossil fuel split them but then I would defeat the purpose but if you could split water with the sun that is the holy grail? Well well it takes fourteen hundred and fifty degrees centigrade to split water and we have already achieved than that temperature. So Argo long-term is to use solar energy energy to split the water molecule make fully green hydrogen and that could really have an impact on reducing fossil fuel use and of course reducing. Co Two emissions. Milk that's bill gross founder and CEO of Helium Jen the Solar Power Company. That he says could soon use the power of the sun to make cement and steel driving down that huge source of carbon emissions also. We should say he's the founder of ideal at the L. A. based incubator. If you've got an idea get it to him Bill Gross. Thank you so much. Thank you very much here now as production of NPR WBZ association with the BBC World Service. I'm Robin Young. I'm Jeremy Hobson. This is here now. Brad Kavanagh has been on the Supreme Court for a little more than a year. Getting there was no easy feat this whole two week. Effort has been a calculated.

Hurricane Dorian batters coastal areas of the Carolinas
"Now it's time for the last word with lawrence o'donnell good evening ritual and we're going to have bill karen's tonight and also the the death count in the bahamas. Now is increasing tonight and the health minister said it may rise dramatically from where it already is and so we're going to take a look at where that stands tonight that is becoming an increasingly increasingly tragic story for boating warnings from the from the health minister even as announces the increase death ball. It's just very very chilling and very worrying. Thank you for joining the navy. Seals are now are most prominent special forces unit. Their history goes all the way back to world war two but the oldest a special forces unit in our military is the fighting group that started the special forces concept army rangers who trace their history to be four the revolutionary war and i grew up knowing a lot about army rangers and holding them in awe because my uncle john was an army ranger my uncle john thomas corley was born to irish original grigson brooklyn. He graduated from west point saw combat in world war. Two and career was wounded in world war two. He earned eight silver stars eight and his military career after he died in nineteen seventy seven and my uncle john was inducted into the ranger hall of fame and i have admired many people in my life including many people i've known well and worked with but i have been in full of exactly one person my uncle the war hero army ranger hall of famer and a portion of that aw always extends to special forces veterans and combat veterans and you might detect some of it tonight tonight when i introduce you to former army ranger jason crowe who you will meet and who i will be in tonight's episode of meet the freshman jason crowe is a freshman democratic congressman from colorado who won a congressional district last year that a democrat has never won before he is bringing his military terry experience to his new job. He's bringing his constitutional law experience as a lawyer to his new job when he considers the question of impeachment and you will hear the story of how an encounter after he had with an iraqi man when he was on patrol in baghdad helped shape his decision to come out in support of an impeachment inquiry not a political politically easy thing to do in the district jason crowe represents you will meet and i won't meet congressman. Jason crowe later in this hour and that is something. I'm really looking forward to in this hour. I think you will to presidential candidate. Cory booker will also join us tonight but we begin tonight. Were the news demands we begin. We have have tragic breaking news tonight. From the bahamas on what hurricane dorian has already done to those islands with the death toll there rising significantly tonight to a new total of thirty victims and we have the latest tracking tonight about what hurricane dorian might do next as it approaches the carolinas we have our live live report in a moment from wilmington north carolina which is bracing for a possible direct hit from hurricane dorian. The mayor of wilmington will join us and we'll also get the latest from the bahamas homicide on a situation that is turning more tragic by the hour we begin with what you need to know right now about what hurricane dorian might do next and for for that we turn to meteorologist bill cairns built. What is the latest right now. We're waiting to see if we're going to get landfall overnight lawrence. That's the big dramatic thing will the highest. I wins the one hundred mph winds. Will they move on shore or stay offshore. That'll be the big determination of how much damage we have in eastern north carolina when we all wake up tomorrow morning so during the day day today the storm brushed by areas of south carolina and i brushed it left. It's mark almost three hundred thousand people without power but it didn't do a lot of significant damage with the storm surge that was one thing we were concerned about the charleston area and even savannah for that matter and that was okay and we have we can did a little bit. We're now. We're down to one hundred mile per hour. Maximum sustained winds gust could still get up there about one hundred in twenty if you're in the worst of the storm and that's the question who's going to be in the worst of the storm as we go throughout the next four hours. We're gonna parallel. The coastline that northern is very close closed areas around wilmington rights bill beach go through oslo county the camp lejeune marine base there north topsil beach and then we could possibly get that landfall here carter at county near atlantic beach morehead city the beaufort area where the cedar island ferry takes you out here towards ocracoke. That's where we're going to be watching the possibility of the highest wind and so far they mentioned it. It hasn't been that dramatic with the winds even willing to you're not that far from the center but you're wizar- only gusting fifty-five were forty-three jacksonville myrtle beach still gusting at fifty two on the backside the storm but your weather will dramatically improve as we go throughout the night and so here's how we're going to see this playing out so here's that potential landfall in eastern carter county sometime time right around. It looks like maybe two three a._m. In the morning net could have the wind seventy five and ninety five miles per hour. We could get the peak of the surge to at high tide about that same time so we still have some problems there and then we take the storm early tomorrow morning over the top cape hatteras. It looks like by about ten a._m. It'll be crossing land in getting out over the ocean and then by noon tomorrow after about two weeks of watching what will be a historically remembered in never used name again. Dorian will be gone lawrence at noon tomorrow bill. You think that might be the last necessary. Reporting on this. I in the lower forty eight and the only caveat is that that this will slingshot up become extra tropical almost like a nor'easter type storm and go into nova scotia. They're gonna have some high winds and rain on saturday but it'd be it'd be a different beast than the hurricane. It's been now bill karen. Thank you very much for taking us tonight really appreciate it and how is it looking at this hour in north carolina right now. We head to wilmington where n._b._c. news. Correspondent cal perry is covering dorian for us there cow. What is the situation there lawrence just to give you ninety. I'm undercover. We're here. We've had three inches of rain in the last three hours that day. Lose is something that officials are worried about because the story here is flooding. I'll step out to see you can kind of hear the difference that you heard bill saying there. We're getting gusts up to about fifty miles an hour. Now terrible to be honest can considering what this storm has done on its way here and what people were expecting. A big part of the story here in a big part of the reporting needs to be what happened last year in wilmington. Hurricane florence hit one year ago next week and it cut the city off from the rest of the estate. This city was basically an island for a period of forty eight hours and because of that some people have decided to stay here and ride out the storm because they were <hes> able to get back into their homes last year. Emergency officials are telling people to hunker down this is sort of the meat of this storm and again just a reminder to anybody who you still has power power on in much of the city once those winds get fifty miles an hour and we're sort of right on that line. The authorities are not going to be able to get out and do any rescue efforts so important for people to remember for the next at least six hours. This is the time where they really want to hunker down awards cal perry. Thank you very much for joining us live report and for more on how the residents of wilmington north carolina are dealing with hurricane dorian. We are joined now by phone by mayor bill. Sappho is the mayor of wilmington north carolina and and mr mary we just heard from bill karen's that by noontime tomorrow this hurricane could be already in your history books. But what do you expect to wake makeup to tomorrow. In terms of the consequences that have already landed on wilmington a lot of raves and we're getting it right now of course a <hes> probably <hes> some downed trees and hopefully not paralyzed possibly power lines were also come down as long as this is the second time i'm in in a in a year that we're dealing with a hurricane. We had florence last year. Now we're dealing with dorian and it's <hes> you know it's it's obviously i say are kind of <hes> on whether weary but <hes> we're ready to go to hunker down and we'll put our assets our streets as soon as this storm passes now. I know you have a lot of experience as a coastal city in the carolinas align is dealing with hurricanes and anticipation canes but did you do anything differently this year based on last year's experience. We did <hes> last. Should we just we were cut off in the world for four days because the allen areas flooded and interstate forty i mean ari coming into the city was funded for four days. So we pre position fuel. A lot of resources that came in from the state early on <hes> were pre-position into higher ground closer to the city <hes> obviously we have been going through these hurricane drills a couple of times a year so our our teams down here first responders emergency operations officials always always learn something different about every storm and <hes> we learned a lot from florence and we pre position assets closer into the city does time than we did last damn <hes>. If this thing does come ashore there will be ready to to help the folks in the sentences on in our community. What do you want to tell the people of wilmington who have of <hes>. What do you want to tell them tonight about what they can expect in terms of being able to return well listen to what the emergency operation folks folks say <hes> you know gives us some time to get our crews into the streets and clean up the debris would make sure that they're already down power lines not livewires wires or somebody doesn't get hurt educated <hes> and let us get those things out of the way getting them cleared up before you move back into town. We'll give you the the all oh cleared to get back and you'll be listening to the state and to the federal officials as well as local officials on before you make that track back into town and we also want to make certain yeah we do have any roadways that are <hes> flooded. We we want the citizens to be aware of them because we we lost several people last year where people try to transverse oh rosa were covered and could make it and unfortunately <hes> balser lives because of it so we want people to be cautious and vigilant. Just listen to what emergency operation folks are. Can you mayor bill sappho wilmington north carolina. Thank you very much for taking the time to join us tonight. We really appreciate it and dwayne dr duane sands the health health minister of the bahamas who joined us on this program last night told n._b._c. news tonight that the death toll in the bahamas has just increased by seven to a new total of thirty. Dr sands told n._b._c. news quote. The official count is thirty. We expect a number two climbed dramatically. I certainly believe based on the findings in the field that the number will rise dramatically. I really believe that based on the geography topography. The separation due to flooding collapsed buildings thinks that this is going to take quite a while. I mean the zone were talking about islands in range of fifty miles settlements that are separated we literally you have to go house by house to inspect some of the structures that have collapsed. It's going to take quite a while. The logistics are incredibly challenging. It is a horrendous challenge right now. The prime minister has attempted to prepare the public for the ultimate confirmation and the expectation that this has been a a devastating storm and loss of life and property. Dr sands told n._b._c. news that the next death toll update will come sometime time tomorrow and joining us now by phone is the honorable quasi thompson. He is the minister of state for the grand bahamas a minister thompson. Can you tell us what you know. At this point about the changing death toll it. It suddenly went up by by seven. Is that because it's now easier to be able to make some of these identification recovery's yes. Yes and i wanna say good night to you tonight your to all of the folks in the u._s. In the world who is joining you're absolutely correct <hes> no of flood waters and our receding <hes> prisons are now able to get into <hes> the areas that were impossible before and so now now in that <hes> recovery mood we are we are recovering and and seeing now the unfortunately <hes> the <hes> that exist exist <hes> i am on the island grand bahamas on this team really is happening on the island of grand bahama read the second most populated island in <hes> in the hamas. Go a bit more populated than arbuckle <hes> and we are there some areas that we only were able to reach <hes> today <hes> unfortunately <hes> <hes> recovering bodies today <hes> so the prime minister and adopted signs absolutely correct that <hes> the official count on washington washington es is going to increase one of the grimmer points of news that we got today was the fact that the island's need more morticians more the people who know how to handle dead bodies and help in the identification of dead bodies and they are flying in from the united states as many <hes> as can is that the current most important focus is finding and identifying these victims well. That's that's one of the focuses. I mean we've been doing that today. <hes> getting into the eastern side of our island today and unfortunately we we did recover some bodies <hes> today <hes> however that's just one of the concerns <hes> we have <hes> hundreds of poisons on island that <hes> homeless <hes> we we have about four hundred now remain in shelters a number still well with their families. <hes> <hes> one part of our island was really completely devastated air. We had flood waters in the range of twenty feet high. <hes> some person trapped in their addicts had to be rescued. <hes> we have <hes> we announced shut up feeding banks because obviously listens or lost their houses. <hes> beyond complete island is out of power and out of water so the government has mobilized <hes> thankfully persons of have come forward the anada receiving relief items. I've been are mobilizing to get those relief items. <hes> impotent communities we have feeding centers and the now trying to feed clues provide water <hes> provide those essential supplies just to keep a population are there areas of the island's that are so remote that the the people there who have survived won't be able to find their way to a safer place. They won't be able to walk whatever that distance might be well. The island of grand bahama. I also the island of arbuckle really <hes> how the number of keys so you can imagine tier areas that are in in regular circumstances accessible by boat and in some cases only by small boats <hes> we compound at with <hes> the area's only accessible by one road and dot ruled either may have been washed away with a who would would have debris was covered and so it would have taken some time to access <hes> those those areas because of the up because at the time <hes> but we have done so <hes> by by way of heavy equipment and access those roads in some cases we've actually had to use <hes> vassals just go around the island to get into different different areas <hes> and so it has been challenging but the lease <hes> defense force on 'em officials <hes> i really commend because those so comes down and says the the <hes> stepped up the prime minister has said that we will spend no expand to ensure that <hes> we would began to recover that we do what we can into south population and that's really what has been happening minister thompson. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. We are very sorry for what has happened to your islands and what you are continuing when you discover in this aftermath. We really appreciate your time tonight. Thank you and we want to thank all of your listeners. <hes> we've gotten tremendous support <hes> commanders outpouring so we want to thank all of those persons who have been in the recovery effort and i've offered their help on assistance to us <hes> thank you very much. Thank you appreciate it and when we come back one of the most devastating hurricanes that has ever hit northeastern united states was hurricane sandy which brought devastation like we have never are singing to new york city's staff nyland and new jersey cory booker was mayor of newark new jersey van. He brought people into his home then to feed them to let them stay there and he saw what is always true about a hurricanes surviving. The hurricane is one thing but surviving the aftermath aftermath is something else surviving. The aftermath usually as much more difficult for poor people just like everything else where he booker will tell us what what he did leading his city for the aftermath of superstorm sandy. That's coming up hi. It's katie tur- want to keep up with m._s._n._b._c. While you're on the go subscribe to the m._s._n._b._c. daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed. During this unprecedented the era of news text m._s._n._b._c. two six six eight six six to subscribe the destruction caused by superstorm in hurricanes like dorian cost the united states billions of dollars in damages every year but when it comes to escaping surviving and recovering from a natural disaster. It's like everything thing else. Poor people suffer the most a report by the national bureau of economic research states the obvious there is a broad consensus that the wealthy can access access a wide range of protective strategies from owning a second home to accessing better quality medicine food and medical care and housing the poor are are thus more likely to bear the incidence of natural disasters. Our next guest has had hard experience dealing with the catastrophic effects of superstorm arms on poor communities cory booker was mayor of newark new jersey. When hurricane sandy hit new jersey in october of twenty twelve sandy had just been downgraded to to a tropical storm by the time it hit new jersey but it's still left millions without power and without a place to live mayor cory booker invited members of his community to eat and sleep in his home in the aftermath of the storm now united states senator booker is a democratic presidential candidate and he joins us tonight from newark newark new jersey senator booker. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. I wanted to get your reaction to what we just heard. The minister. Tell us from the bahamas hamas that the death toll has risen by seven tonight. It was down in the low twenty s at went up to thirty and we're told that it's going to probably rise dramatically atakli tomorrow and i want to get your reaction to what's happening at the book in the bahamas and what we should be doing to help well number one. My heart aches watching the photos and the videos and seeing what's going on there but you really hit the nail on the head. The when the storm in passes the danger persists we lost people here in the city lost lives in the days after because of things that folks often don't think of remember hurricane sandy hit in october. It was cold. People often make mistakes running generators indoors and we lost people to carbon dioxide oxide poisoning people need medicines and access to lifesaving drugs that sometimes z._v. refrigerated well. If you have no power your drugs can get spoiled. There are so many life life threatening things that happened in the aftermath of the storm that they are not out of the crisis yet and this is a test of our compassionate empathy right now and i'm hoping that folks are finding the right places to go to contribute to this effort because we here in the state of new jersey believe it or not have still people who are recovering their lives after the devastating loss and again lawrence i appreciate you on so many levels but pointing out the resiliency that people of wealth waffen have but low income families poor families it could be tragically tragically devastating to their lives and the impact can be lasting an traumatic and lasts for years no listen i know people who in the aftermath of hurricane simply pulled up and went to a hotel a distant hotel and and i also know people who lost their homes had nowhere to go and after sandy i didn't get through jersey but i was up in staten island which was absolutely devastated and i i. You're not surprising me by saying there. There are people in areas housing situations that have not recovered have not been made whole since sandy. What is the what is the government's responsibility in the aftermath of one of these storms. I think this is these are moments. Where we you have to understand. It is all hands on deck that word responsibility has everyone has to take responsibility and lawrence. You and i live in the new york new jersey area. We have seen from nine eleven to hurricane sandy. Where is the best of humanity. Come forward where people were there for their neighbors. They were there air for their community. They never stopped working and i know first responders and the aftermath my team was going days with very little to no sleep leap whatsoever but i tell you what we set up a hub in newark to receive resources and we're getting truckloads of food and water from states around around us people sending their emergency crews here doing sort of joint rescues because we had people stranded it was it was an amazing moment where i saw people didn't ask what party you're in. What background the best of who we are well. I think that's patriotism. I think that's love of country but love should stop at our borders. This is a time that we need that same kind of grace to the bahamas and what they're going through in america. We are one of the best nations if not the best nation often for showing showing support to a lot of our neighbors especially in the caribbean from haiti to the dominican republic to obviously in this case bahamas. I'm hoping more and more americans will think <hes>. Maybe i can't do everything but i do something even if it's a small gesture to help that incredible nation to recover that grace in the aftermath that you talk about i saw saw i witnessed it up close on staten island truly inspiring after sandy. What made you decide to actually take people into your home. I love where i live. I live in a low income below the poverty line community the you often see folks with little who consistently showed the most. I've learned about the definition of grace from living here in newark from people title where i've seen rise to challenge sometimes. It's a murder in the community family. That's been victory over frankly b._s. And so i just feel blessed blessed to have opportunities to return to a community so much for me so in that aftermath i was in the command center and literally running around the the city and i got a text from one of my neighbors who just said look. The power on our side of the block is out. Your side is not going to look. I'm not using my house going constantly. Just here's how you get in anything that you need. I'm going to send food resources so it became a hub. The problem is is that i got a lot of attention engine for doing that because i was a mayor but it was going on all over newark all over new jersey to see the deep decency and goodness in in our country when there's crises that happened i have to say than sometimes visible storm passes. I <unk> hope empathy can often continue to deal with other crises. We have whether it's environmental injustices or scourge of gun violence because we are at our best as a community eighty as a country when we don't let the lines that divide us ever stop us from tightening those those those those those bonds that hold this country entry together and we need more of that. I was in the nineteen eighty nine earthquake in san francisco. I've never seen anything like it before. This was one of america's americans will remember happened during the world series horrible devastation but i'll never forget that was the first major national natural disaster. I was in that weeks after you could go to gas stations. You go pull restaurants. There was kindness in the air. That was so profound. I saw america. It's best and i hope that we can continue especially in this era where we see demeaning and degrading happening at behavioral happening at the highest office in the land i want to see in our country and this is one the reason running for president a revival of civic grace so the spirit we often see come out when we were at our worst can also come out during times of relative tiv- com or without these kind of natural disasters that remind us about american goodness. We need more of that now more than ever especially as you see more partisanship arisen ship or more i would say more more just divide in our nation senator cory booker. Thank you very much for joining joining us tonight. We really appreciate it lawrence. I just want to say one more thing story about your uncle really moved me and there are heroes like that that we don't celebrate and we talking about the right now with first responders in crises a heroism you talked about in your uncle and we don't know and i now know this privy into it more as the united states senator whether it's rangers or seals special forces people out there right now as we speak out there doing incredible things i give honor to your uncle and to all those the americans or a continuing tradition so all the best to to your family's legacy. Thank you really appreciate it. Thank you for joining us tonight and when we come back president trump obviously wants us to talk about his defaced weather map tonight. He's doing everything he can to keep that story alive and often donald trump keeps a bad trump story alive. It's because every other trump story is much worse after this break john howland sam stein will join us is to discuss what we think. Donald trump doesn't want us talking about which includes taking money away from schools for the children of military rick personnel and using that money for you guessed if you haven't guessed it. You'll get the answer after this break grew up back. This is the second prison trump apparently wants us to be discussing his abuse of weather maps. He must want us to talk about it because he kept tweeting about it today. The president is personally keeping this story alive the story of him using a defaced weather map to try to prove that hurricane dorian could have reached alabama. Why is he doing this. Why does he so obviously want us to talk about this this story it's a bad story for donald trump but it does seem like it might be one of those deliberate trump diversions because the story we turn to now is much much worse for donald trump and worse in the view of trump voters and that is the new information. We have tonight about the money. Donald trump is diverting -verting from the defense department budget to pay for the wall. He promised his voters mexico would pay for. I will have mexico pay for that wall mark. My words mexico will pay for more believe me and and who's who's gonna pay for the wall mexico hundred hundred percent. How is the next rally going going to feel about. Chanting the pentagon will pay for the wall or we will pay for the wall or school. Children of military personnel will pay for the wall. This is a much worse story for donald trump than a fake line on a weather map. The defense department's diverting three point six billion dollars away from one hundred twenty seven military construction projects projects in twenty. Three states are being funded to pay for the wall nine of those construction projects are for building or renovating schools calls for the children of u._s. Military personnel utah a state with two republican senators is losing fifty four billion dollars in military funding that will be sent to the wall arizona senator martha mcsally who has supported the president's emergency declaration that he is using to justify the diversion of military funds uh-huh is now watching an army base in her state lose thirty million dollars to pay for the wall and that's after the secretary area defense had personally assured her that arizona wouldn't lose any money former astronaut mark kelly running as a democrat for the senate in arizona. Zona is already pulling ahead of republican senator. Martha mcsally mark kelly now says that senator mc sally quote didn't keep her word when she promised is to protect funding for arizona military bases as local news stories continue to appear in the twenty three states that are losing military funding to pay for the wall. No republican senator has suffered a harsher judgment in the local news media the north carolina republican senator thom tillis who must i survive a republican primary before entering what will be a competitive general election race for his reelection next year. A charlotte observer editorial said the loss of eighty million dollars in military atari construction. Spending in north carolina is quote an eighty million dollar punch in the gut and a lesson the thom tillis never seems to learn the lessons here. There are or at least a couple. I don't trust this president. Donald trump will not hesitate to burn anyone including people who've previously helped him to get the political victory and also when you buy political favors in exchange for your principles. The bill is always more than you thought it would be. We're joined now by two highly experienced political journalists who could surely deliver the best jokes on this program about the trump weather map but have agreed to temporarily leave that to the late night comedians while they concentrate on the issues issues. The president seems to be trying to us from john holliman's with us. He's a national affairs analyst for n._b._c. news and m._s._n._b._c. he has co host and executive producer of showtime's the circus and he's one of the a truly great writers who has fixed his focus on politics and are the better for it joins us. He is the politics editor of the daily beast and he he is an m._s._n._b._c. Political analyst continues to deliver some of the most important reporting of the trump era about what the trump administration is actually doing ninety <music> levers of power in government vami not saying i mean you're the one who goes inside the government in these stories that few us of find the space to cover and tell us what what they're really up to so. Let let's start with you on this question of. He wants us to talk about the hurricane map because what's the thing he doesn't want us talking about. Is it the money for the military money. I don't buy the premise i okay i. I think you know earlier. When i was covering trump i probably would have bought the premise the three dimensional chess and i certainly do you that the military the diversion military funds to the wall is an embarrassing story if anything anything a complete absence of his campaign for the entire republican party yeah because they they allowed this to get through with the transference funds but i've come through observation and reporting that trump is just sort of clinically incapable of moving on from these things into him. There's no greater slight than being perceived as is being completely out of touch with reality and so he's now gone through almost a dozen tweets a proclamation statements written upon maps to prove that he was right about about alabama and what's particularly bizarre about this and why. I think that this is a very bad story from in its own right. He's doing all while our country is still dealing with turkey and it's not like the hurricane has passed north carolina's about getting it right now so it would be one thing if we gone through this. There was no damage but he's literally distracted by proving that alabama was in the crosshairs as north carolina is dealing with this. I meant to include this in the premise. I cling to the to the possibility that it's both yeah yeah. There's an obsessive and he has obsessive behavior all the time but he's also aware he's looking at those maps segments and going well. They're not talking about the the kids schools that i'm not funding well. I think this is the right answer and i will say not obsessive pathological as the word you're looking for. His pathology is a pathological liar. The pathology apology however is triggered by various bad news on other fronts so the pathophysiology gets up intensive when he looks around and sees what all the domestic political fraud he looks at polling where he's getting beaten like a gong in every swing state by not just joe biden but by many of the doubt further down the scale will democrats he looks across the ocean. He sees fred boris johnson getting beaten about the face and neck every day telling us how smart boris johnson and then and then he looks at the economy on me where we have news just this today this the survey that these certified accountants financial industry executives who are more pessimistic about the look for the economy than they have been in three years and you've got data coming out that suggests that we have a looming recession so economic news political news foreign news all bad stories for donald trump and it amps up the instinct for pathological lines. Let me just say it's not like this. Particularly savvy effort virtually no not want us. I guess i'm just making hers. You say it doesn't take sophistication to try to divert attention to something a little bit more positive than you have ranting about alabama and writing over man. What's he gonna go do a rally somewhere. Leave the oval office. Go down to the border. The building the wall there are things you could do as the president united states to divert attention and much more positive ways instead of bringing attention to yourself with someone who is incapable of getting over the idea that alabama may have had gusty winds lawrence points out in his loft around chen. What's he gonna do is go to a rally in the key and the key element of the rally they build that wall mexicans get paid for do that anymore. Be more stuck with the idea that mexico and painful the guy can maneuver through this. What's remarkable to me is that he just unable to get literally get out of his chair and try to do something. Ask other than tweet and say look at this map. I drew on it gets the last word in this round because he really likes the stein. Thank you both for joining us tonight and when we come back it's tonight's episode of meet. The freshman freshman democrat jason crowe colorado is a former u._s. Army ranger who served three tors in iraq and afghanistan says donald trump's plan to divert money from military projects to pay for the border wall is putting military readiness at risk crow is also also working to keep the kinds of weapons that he used in on the battlefield out of the hands of america's mass murderer is he's one of the democratic freshmen who won in a republican public district and who has come out in favor of the impeachment process. This is a freshman. You're really gonna wanna meet. That's coming up when the news began to break yesterday about exactly where the three point six billion dollars military funding was coming from to you pay for the trump border wall freshman democratic congressman jason crowe of colorado was on a bipartisan delegation trip to the southern border with republican can representative don bacon of nebraska. They were right there at the border. They are both members of the armed services committee which has original jurisdiction over that money that is now being diverted to the trump wall. Karston crowe served in combat in iraq. He also served in combat in afghanistan where he was a member of the elite army. Rangers are military's original special forces unit. It was his service in iraq that informed his decision this summer to support an impeachment inquiry and a medium he imposed. He wrote announcing his decision on impeachment. He told the story of patrolling the streets of baghdad when an iraqi man approached him with a problem that should have been settled in court but the man told jason crowe that there was so much corruption in iraq he said justice is hard to find jason in cro. City is hearing that same kind of thing now in the united states he wrote. I recognize that the values i fought for overseas where now under assault at home home i didn't run for office because i dislike donald trump iran because i love our country and he ran in colorado district last year that has never elected a a democrat in his statement supporting impeachment inquiry congressman crow wrote during my tours in iraq and afghanistan. I saw what happens when government officials are you're above the law when democrats campaign in previously republican districts in the west. They usually don't like to talk about the gun one problem in this country but jason crowe ran as a democrat who supports banning the sale of assault weapons. I look at the gun violence crisis and how it's torn apart so many families enough is enough. These are the weapons that i needed when i was fighting in iraq and afghanistan aghanistan and now they're tearing our communities apart when my four year old daughter comes home from school and tells us about the bad guy drills that she has in how she had to hide in a dark closet and be quiet in case a bad guy ever came to their school. I've had enough of this tonight's episode of meet the freshman you will meet congressman jason crowe. He will tell us what the people in our government working in the southern border told him yesterday and today about what they need to secure our southern border. We'll get the results of his informal poll of border officials on the question of to build or not to build the trump wall. That's next and for tonight's episode of meet the freshman we are joined now by the forty year old freshman democratic congressman jason crowe of how thank you very much for joining us tonight congressman really appreciate it beyond lawrence. Thank you <hes> you were down at the southern border. Just as this news was breaking on the three point six billion. That's being diverted verdict from the jurisdiction of of your committee the armed services committee to the to fund the border wall. What did you hear at the border from the people working there about what they need at the border so every location we visited. I asked one simple question because i didn't want to <hes> guide the answer in any particular direction i just said what is your greatest need from washington. What what can we give you to help you get this job done and accomplish. Your mission on the border and every single person gave me the same answer. They said we need more personnel. They didn't say a wall in fact one agent that i was talking to said you know. It doesn't matter what we build. We put a fence. A wall slats barricades. They always find a way over under or through it but what we need is more personnel more agents so that just illustrated to me that the president's dry hi for this wall is a political decision. You know he's driving this based on his politics and his need to show strength or or to keep a campaign. Promise whatever it happens to be but this is not what the folks <hes> are saying <hes> certainly to me as their number one priority. It sounds like the kind of question that if a member of congress found you you in iraq when you're serving afghanistan that a wise member cars what about you what you need is that is that where that kind of question comes from for you. Well what i like to do when i do these visits he's congressional oversight of visits. <hes> i just wanna get information. You know my my job is to get information to assess that information and to make good policy. You know it's not the drive politics in any of these situations. That's not my background around you. I grew up in a family of small business owners and construction workers. I worked in construction to put my way through college. I became an army ranger. You know my job was about getting things done <hes> for my community and for people not about politicizing issue so i always want to try to get the best information possible and that certainly my background. I want to go to your decision this summer to come out in support of an impeachment inquiry. Tell us how you got there. Yeah yeah you know i wanted to assess all the information. I wanted to wait to see what the muller report contained in it. <hes> i read the whole report was shocked by its contents contents. I still am shocked by its contents wanted to hear what robert muller had to say. <hes> some of the other testimony ultimately at the end of the day this was about rule of law this this was about my experience as you mentioned earlier and iraq and afghanistan and seen firsthand what happens in a society when people don't trust government anymore when <hes> rule of law and order in process breaks down <hes> and i started to see some indications of that you know early on my campaign you know i was talking to some folks out on the campaign trail trail and <hes> you know several of them said listen does it doesn't really matter what you tell me and you seem like a really nice guy but i just don't believe this system works for me whether you're republican or democrat and that really shook me human that took me to the core to hear people saying that that type of <hes> apathy and resignation and i wanted to do something about it and that's why i said <hes> recently only that you know we have to conduct an inquiry congress has to cert- itself in this process and maintain checks and balances if we're not able to do that now than when congressman <hes> what is your constituents reaction been to this because as we've said stress that you're the first democrat to represent this district and here you are earn your first year saying you wanna have an impeachment inquiry of a republican president well. I walked people through my thought process on this. I'd get out of my community a lot hold town halls and coffee's on the corner roundtables all the time you know over the last month. We're here on our the district work period. I probably thirty or forty public events out in the community. I need with anybody and everybody. I take their questions and i walk them through. My thought process and i i think that's a a a lesson for other focuses. Don't hide from those interactions and even if people don't agree with you necessarily if you show up if you're willing to have the conversation with with them talk through the issue keep an open mind listen what they have to say be respectful of them more often than not <hes> th th they'll be okay with the way you come out because i always i remind my constituents said the promise is not agreement one hundred percent of the time you know if <hes> if elected official comes up and says you know you're going to agree with you a hundred percent of the time they're not telling you the truth the promises about <hes> you know making sure you're transparent and open with folks carson. Jason crowe gets tonight's last word. Thank you very much for joining us. Please come back really good to have you here. Thank you good to be on. Hey it's chris as from m._s._n._b._c. Every day.

People really liked it, and there's no accounting for bad taste, but with hairband. Come on, it was fun. I was totally I loved it. HAIRBAND IDOL was the thing we've done in the past. We did power ballad challenge this year now. The only thing I said is that for every one. Of. Every hairband that you play this morning, I wanNA counter with one of our power ballad. Challenge entries so okay. Get started with a hairband. Right now and then I'll queue up power ballad challenge tuned for after that. Let's start with some rat. Oh. Did you already put it in for Joe? Yes rat is enjoying a little bit of a resurgence with that GEICO commercial. So good for them. All right rat kicks US off. It's it's valves. Friday. Yeah Rat! All right rounding around bows picking out some hair band tunes today, great video for that. Remember the video for round and round. They're playing in the attic of some mansion, and then like Milton Berle is. Cross dressing. I don't know why Milton Berle is in that video. He must have been a pain in the ASS. Tide of the ban I think like his nephew managed the bander something. It? Yeah, it was something like that. Warren de Martini Steven Pearson. Robbin crosby wrote that one and Vh One called at the sixty first best hard rock song of all time. I saw Bon. Jovi Open for rat. It was my second concert ever.

Evoking such stark imagery Mike. Sports, coming up after the commercial break. What do you have for us? The college football season is starting to get lopped off piece by piece at least the big ten conference announcing yesterday. Conference Games only if they play it all. Yes this was a disturbing development for those who were clinging to the hope that college football was a a foregone conclusion because it doesn't seem like that's the case now central. Rap through some hockey. Talk for you later this morning as well sports next. DV. Sports all right. Here's Mike presented with your sports on TV what's up. Sports Center brought to you by KIA, and an ominous move made by the big ten conference yesterday, as it relates to the potential for a college football season amid the corona virus, the big ten announcing on Thursday that it will play conference only schedules for its false sports, including football big ten released a statement that cited Excuse me that said that the health safety and Wallace of our student athletes, coaches, game, officials and others associated with our sports programs remain our number. One priority in unprecedented times The conference statement also cited. Playing, conference games, only as an option that gives the big ten quote greatest flexibility to adjust which I'm guessing is. An acknowledgement that. It could get even worse in the fall of it could be second wave whatever they don't WanNa play the Non Conference Games and then have to cancel conference games. If you start earlier in September then you have. Potentially! Some weeks where you can take some time off and then maybe resume maybe right. It's not it's not encouraging or exciting or optimistic. college football fan I would imagine that dollar power. Five conferences are going to. At least think about this. If not following the big tents, footsteps and limit what they're going to try to do. Football this season for Penn state that means the lines will not be hosting Kent State on September the fifth. They won't play at Virginia Tech on September Twelfth, and they won't host San Jose State on September. Nineteenth one of the high profile big ten non conference games that has gone away October third at Lambeau field in Green Bay Wisconsin was gonNA play Notre, Dame. And Ain't happening now now. What's Notre Dame to do? That's a great question. That is a great question. a lot of people are gonNA. Be scrabble and I think once these dominoes continue to fall, or if they continue to fall as they likely might Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith said that he's in favor of playing ten conference games. But the big ten or Kevin, Warren also not optimistic. He went on the big ten network last night and said quote. This is not a fait accompli that we're going to have sports in the fall. We may not have sports in the fall. We may not have a college football season in the big ten. Seems like they're just getting used to the idea. I draw holdout. Yeah I don't know how they're going to pull it off. Yeah and it's. You know some people have been speculating about that as early as? The early weeks of the virus, but I think what they're trying to do is in case there's an opportunity to play. Be prepared to play. In hold out hope until the last possible minute. The ACC. As though there is a lot of of. Progress on a treatment. And one of them. Is this Rim desert here that we've been talking about? which is an antiviral drug which is already proving to be? Pretty effective and it's helping people not die in the hospital. Is it cuts? The rate in which the virus can replicate, you can get better before the virus overtakes you. They've developed now. and. Like a a nasal spray with that, which would be even more effective and they're. They haven't got it completely approve yet. It's getting close. My point is this if that happens? And they're able to mass. Produce it for some reason. The sprays easier to produce them than the pill form. I guess that would be something that knocks this down to a bad like people now call it a bad flu. That is such BS. This attacks more than your respiratory system. For some people it attacks their circulatory system tax their brain, their neurological like their nerve system. It is much more different. It is completely complex Valerie. I'm seeing more and more cases of people who are sick for months, and it's just one thing after the next and ice, I saw that story yesterday about people having long term neurological problems because of that. Yeah! This is not the flu, so if they can knock it down to be something like the flu, you might have football if that drug doesn't or another one comes along, so it's not that. There's no hope now that I think everybody is trying to wait until the last second before they. pull the you know safety on the you know well last resort and then. This doesn't work. We can't do a season and that's just getting up to the line waiting to see this, is it? We don't have we don't have treatment. We don't have vaccine. We can't do this. Little Hope. Probably Little Hope. As to the current status, quo could change, and if you have some time, things could change the ACC announcing yesterday that it is going to delay the start of competition for all fall sports except football until September. The I pit is supposed to host Miami of Ohio. On September, the fifth Randall you mentioned Notre Dame a second ago. their athletic director, Jack Swore Brick at did an interview with ESPN yesterday. His take on what's going on quote? It has grown more pessimistic over the last two weeks, but I'm not to a point to say we shouldn't continue to plan. For the potential to open on time. I just think it's less likely. We have to shift allocations a little bit a little more time on planning the alternatives and a little less time on planning routine. Go forward Notre Dame's already justed schedule. The Irish were supposed to play navy in Dublin Ireland on August twenty ninth. That game has been moved to Navy's marine. Navy Marine. Corps stadium but they don't have a date yet. The probably going to play it Labor Day if they play it or thereabouts, Labor Day weekend, pirates were trying to play an intra squad game yesterday pnc park. They got rained out. Talk about ominous. Ominous developments foreboding. They can't even practice against each other. Downpour so they didn't get to play newsworthy development of the day manager. Derek Shelton's asked about prospect key Brian Hayes yesterday much as it had gone day before with Kiani Keller. Shelton asked if Hayes was on the field yesterday. No, he was not as as been on the field that all since last Friday quote. He has not participated in any of the workouts so those are two guys. Brian Hayes and Cuny Cala who have not done anything. We have not been given a reason why that's the case Blake Central and right handed, pitcher and Socrates Brdo and outfielder consented to allow the pirates to announce that they had tested positive for the Corona Nineteen Virus Bucks Getting Ready for the upcoming sixty game season presumably and Schultz talked about that a lot. Since the pirates reported the PNC park including about how the way pitchers are used in this sixty games sprint might be different depending on the pitcher and particular game situation. Well I don't think you're going to be more hesitant because of the length just because of the fact that we've closely monitored what our guys have done I think one of the really good things that Oscar did throughout the time off. Was the fact that you know and I think we've talked about it numerous times. Times is going into twenty twenty one important too, so we're watching the endings. If they've thrown now. Of course, they're not the high-level high-intensity innings that they would have gotten in a regular major league game so I think that's going to be on an individual basis like I've said before I think you're. You're going to see leverage situations. Maybe happened a little earlier in the game, so you may see guys told because of that, but I think on an individual basis. You're going to see guys treat. Treat, whoever that pitcher is individually, so you can see some guys go to one ten. And you could see other another situations. Guys get to eighty and all of us in the leverage of the game changes, and we're seeing maybe a guy that fits normally in the eighth pitch in the sixth. Boy, letting the guy, let starting pitcher throw one hundred ten pitchers bringing in your best reliever the seventh inning if that's when the Games actually on the line, it's crazy. Talk Radio. They think it over there. Also said. He also said the old. Up might become a thing of the past at least four the sixty game campaign. Yeah I think you are going to see less of that I think you're gonNA. See more matchup situations. You know right from the get go where you're not. You're playing. The guys that you feel are going to attack that starting pitcher the that day. Can't afford reposited opportunity. Now get your sake. Take a day off. In I think what's going to be about, this is I think you could see guys managing like it's the playoffs or the pennant race. There's going to be more emphasis on the little things, and it's not just going to be thrown out there and see what happens because it's only made, and you got a hundred and twenty games left There's GonNa. Be Some intensity to this and I think every game is going to have ramifications in high stakes. High stakes feel to it and I think guys will manage accordingly Gregory Flocco did the zoom thing yesterday he was one of the pirates that that made himself available to the media via zoom after a disastrous season last year and shoulder surgery said he's healthy again and he thinks he can be a star this season, but that doesn't mean he's striving to be the quote unquote guy for the pirates. Nuts different just. Being what are? And you know. I'm not a person like Oh you know like I wanna be. The guy like is more like a team because that's why the cross team. That's why I got the main enough to be altogether and go file together. I'm here to to do my best every day in and I. Obviously Support My team and be there for for them to. Shelton's talking about plunk Oh last night in terms of what he might be capable of, and he thinks people are sleeping on him a little bit apparently. Shelton emphasize the plaza only twenty eight. he is That injuries which have limited what he's been able to do, and he didn't have. A whole lot of experience in the minor leagues before he came up in two thousand and fourteen Shelton said quote. I think he's poised to have a really big year. For what it's worth. Hey. I think they can pull off baseball I really do. Make, you can stay far enough from one another in that game that you can keep it from being that big of a deal. I think they're going to have to wear masks. I really do. Is cranfield downs. I honestly do. That's crazy. Talk on a pitcher throwing one hundred ten pitches. While they say it's airborne indoors now for sure like I think most people kind of suspected that which is why you're supposed to wear masks, but. Outdoor. You should be fine so I don't know if that means like well. If you're in a dome, you know. It's any more likely to spread, but we'll see spouse news. Thinking about I was thinking about that. If you did wear masks, then they wouldn't have to put their gloves in front of their face. When the pitcher and catcher talk on the Mount, they could just talk That's true. Good Point Bowel coming up there. While METALLICA is continuing with their philanthropic ways. We'll talk about that a little bit coming up and the new restrictions that went into effect early this morning in allegheny county.

A new study, though is showing how beneficial though stay at home orders were during the pandemic researchers looked at the forty two states in Washington DC who all put in shelter in place orders in March and early April they found those directives possibly prevented up to three hundred seventy thousand corona virus deaths by the middle of May. That study concluded the stay at home orders were effective in reducing daily growth rates of deaths and hospitalizations from the illness. And a new report suggesting the pandemic has been a temporary relief for wildlife study from the University of California Davis, look at the decline in traffic came from stay at home, orders in California Idaho and main found the number of crashes, involving bigger mammals also went down in those three states, researchers think it could amount to as many as thirteen thousand fewer large mammals killed on roads.

List for tournaments which I don't know if you're like me, but I was like what words do they have in their? The they're removing like. Why are they in there? In the first place? The North American scrabble Players Association, said it reads reached the decision after conducting a poll of its membership. CEO John Chu said the passionate responses told him they wanted the game to be more inclusive. It was not unanimous. However, Chu said some members threatened to leave the group. If one single word was removed games maker has brought has already announced. Those words should not be played in tournaments. I'm wondering. What were they slurs or just? Abbreviations, or because there are some words that I was using all the time I went out about a month long. scrabble run there and you know I I'd never used the medicines. I knew that they worked. Get a triple. They won't even give you the list though that's that's a little bit dubious. Statue of Milania trump in her home. Country of Slovenia is nothing more than a pile of ashes after locals torched it on the fourth of July, an American artists commissioned the wooden sculpture last year. Local artists use a chainsaw to sculpt the first lady wearing a blue dress. Similar to the one she wore for the president's inauguration. Culprits at the and Milania statue ablaze on Independence Day, and the charred aftermath has since been removed. Police are investigating. I think that is A.

And Humid Day temperatures in the mid nineties might see. A thunderstorm was well at Seventy Three D. V.. Michael I've your sports coming up at the bottom of the hour and hopefully not a sign of things to come the big ten. Mike seems to be indicating. It's less and less likely we're going to see college football resemble anything like it's looked like in the past. Yeah they're down to conference games only and at least a couple of high profile conference members aren't guaranteeing that. This is the end of the cancellations non-conference portion of big ten schedules. Well and I don't know if at any time ever in the meaning of big time donors board of directors. What have you at Notre Dame that anybody ever raised their hand, said Hey, guys. It's cool that we're independent. But what if there's a pandemic and everyone went? Oh, shut up, Charlie like. They are now twisting in the wind. Right I mean they're? They're gonNA. Have a tough time if they can't find a schedule of tapes now I'm sure there's going to be plenty out there. Who will take the money? A Plane Notre Dame, but. Might not find themselves a lot of high profile. Matchups if the big ten is not allow them play. I think the bigger issue for Notre. Dame is going to be if other conferences follow suit and do what the big ten did and play conference games. Only Notre Dame's actually lucky this year. The Irish are only or were only gonNA play Wisconsin from the big ten so right now it's all really about yeah, usually they play Michigan Michigan state purdue. Yeah, you know two or three big ten games at least only one this year, but what if the ACC does the same thing and so forth? How many times you play, army and navy. I guess we'll find out. And so I thought I read. The ACC was leaning that way. It woke. Up at a lot of them are leaning that way I mean. The big ten wanted sufficiently, said conference games only, but I think that doors now been opened and I think conferences are are going to go through it. You know somebody had to be I nobody wanted I. But now that somebody has become the first one to do it. Okay, that's the way to go and then okay. Yeah it's going to be difficult if if everybody else follow suit all right. We'll talk more about that at the bottom of the hour. Sean Collier joining us right now. With a few reviews Sean Good Morning. How are you? Doing all right, how are you? Hanging in there body. What did you watch this week? Well I I never thought we'd get to this point, but I think that we as a nation are not being fair to Tom Hanks. Also, you may, you may while you may have heard last week. The Tom Hanks America's dad is a little disappointed in us because there are still people not wearing masks, which you know, your decision on that matter should not necessarily come down to. I wasn't GonNa, but forrest gump told me to. What if that's it or takes fine every time you walk into, get go without a mask. You make what he the cowboy from Toy story cry. How's that? Yes, there you go! But beyond that he put a lot into this new movie greyhound, which to clarify right up front has nothing to do with either dog, racing or low cost bus travel. That is not what it's about. Does it have to do with a drink and that is what's a greyhound isn't a gin and in orange juice or something like that. I don't know a greyhound. I know the Godfather. The Godfather. The Godfather isn't the Godfather. Vodka and I WANNA. Say like Amaretto. Vodka and grapefruit juices, a greyhound or GIN in grapefruit juice. Grapefruit seems to be the common denominator there. We should really know all of this I. Know We've had nothing to do, but combined simple ingredients our homes. On! Greyhound is a World War Two movie. Tom Hanks plays the captain of a naval destroyer that is leading a convoy of ships from the US to England. The movie takes place over a period of days where they're deepen the Atlantic without allied air cover, and they're under attack by the U boats. It's a very tense movie. It's a very visually impressive movie. It's the kind of thing that normally you would wanna see like on a big screen, so it's kind of a shame that it is coming out today on Apple TV plus the one streaming service. We all already forgot about. even in the president this movie. Even doing this press Tom Hanks, who also wrote the screenplay? He wrote the screenplay for Greyhound. His said he's disappointed that it went to apple. Because it's a very impressive looking thing, it's less impressive if you're watching it on your IPAD, and it is pretty good other than that it's it's very much an action kind of a movie. Almost all of the dialogue is like Navy jargon that will put some people off, but it's tight. It's quick to well under ninety minutes, Tom Hanks's great in it. I think it would have. have been a popular kind of sleeper. Summer hit as such I. Don't know how many people are going to find it I think if you have an iphone, you already get the apple service and it's cheap to get a month of Apple TV plus anyway, which is worth it? If you just watch this and the Beastie boys documentary from a few months ago, if nothing else, watch it because Tom Hanks is having a rough couple of months watching this movie is like giving Tom Hanks a hug. Go Give Tom Hanks Hug. That's worth it right there. So what? What's the old guard all about? The speaking of stars probably did not realize they were making a movie for streaming. The Old Guard is an action movie with Charlie's Iran. It's a based on the graphic novel about a team of immortal soldiers who fight as good guy mercenaries throughout history and I like this one, too. It's different than a lot of the comic book adaptations. It's more personal. It spends a lot of time with its characters, and as a great cast. Charlie's is great. She's paired with a young actress named Kiki Lane. Who was one of the leads in if? If beale street could talk. She's great. They're great together. The only real problem is that it's it's clearly designed to set up a big franchise. I don't know if that's going to happen. It's good, but it's not so impressive that you know i. need to know more especially coming out as Netflix movie I'm sure a lot of people are going to see it on Netflix this weekend, but not nearly as many as those that use Netflix's to watch like the game show. The floor is lava. By the way have you seen? The floor is lava. I have not I. Don't WanNa like it. It's Oh that's entertainment I can watch. People overestimate how good they are at jumping, and then smack their dumb faces off of stuff all day. That's show. All right now. Reconsider Yeah, but the old guard is definitely worth a watch this weekend I. Just don't think you're getting. You know the next iron man, and finally the best of the bunch. This weekend is a horror movie. It's called the Beach House about a couple hiding out at their dads. Seaside cottage and something strange comes out of the ocean. I liked it because I like you know weird. Little horror movies with a small scale in a small cast I also liked it because it serves us a good reminder that we need. The ocean is terrifying and gross. People are rushing back to the beaches. The beaches in a normal year. The ocean is full of gooky monsters. That might kill you. That's how I feel. I it's an understandable viewpoint, no doubt about it all right so to recap breach House very good horror movie. Not No. Real big name actors in it and a lot of times. That's how they're the best. It's easier to suspend this belief if you haven't seen these actors in anything else second. The old guard. Charlie's Y- probably not going to get it done. It is on Netflix and it'll seem like you're watching a real important big movie. This is me. This is me summarizing your Your reviews It'll probably seem like this impressive movie, but not ultimately all that entertaining right like a just a a meal. That's full of calories, but not all that nutritious. A lot of that's a lot of the NETFLIX's stuff. Yeah, you can watch this and it'll fill is in your brain. Then you'll move onto something else. They've captured that market absolutely. And Greyhound, the one thing you said about it than interested me well under ninety minutes. Oh, the credits roll I. Think at eighty one. That's that's what I. Really liked about it. There's there's one scene of set up like where he flashbacks flashes back to talking with his fiance played by Elizabeth, Shue by the way good to see her I love her up other than that. The entire thing is over the course of a number of hours on. On the boat with no frills is just one problem to the next it's it's really you know fun to I. Mean Fun is fun is relative when we're getting bombed by U boats, but it's nice to see a movie that just moves from one thing to the next rapidly like that and you're in and out in less than an hour and a half. I'm looking for I want to watch that one. The navy aspect of it too That's something. My old man WanNa love. Don't want to check that out. The new Tom Hanks Sean Call. You're always a pleasure. Thanks, man, appreciate your time. Thank you have a week up. All Right? We'll see when we come back Mike. Scott, your sports in bad news for the big ten football. That's coming up when we return here on DVD DOT com. D. E. Sports. All right here's Mike. Pursue with your sports now on the DVD morning show Mike. What's the word? Sports are brought to you by Dohrmann appliance. If you were really looking forward to attending that, September The v Kent State at Penn State game up and Happy Valley is our colleague? Mark Mad might say I'm afraid I've got some bad news for you. At game is not going to be played the. Big Ten conference announcing yesterday that Conference Games, only for all of its fall sports including football. the big ten making that announcement yesterday, and citing the health safety and Wallace of our student, athletes, coaches, game, officials, and others associated with our sports, programs and campuses as remaining the conferences number one priority. That's what has. Led to this decision? The big ten, also trying to give itself some wiggle room in the event that. Football season starts in September, but then it has to stop in October for X. number of weeks they're trying to stay flexible and at least get a conference season in, but there's not a lot of optimism that all they have to do is eliminate non conference play, and then football can go on as We all have come to know it the big ten. Ten Conference Commissioner Kevin Warn was on the big ten network last night and said quote. This is not a fate accompli that we're going to have sports in the fall. We may not have sports in the fall. We may not have a college football season in the big ten. Then there was this from Ohio. State Athletic Director Gene Smith quote. I'm really concerned. I'm very concerned. In Our last conversation, whenever that was I was cautiously optimistic. I'm not even there now when you look at the behavior of our country, and you consider that in May. We were on a downward trajectory with our cases. He's talking about the corona virus. Now where if not the worst in the world one of the worst in the world of concern, we may not be able to play. So that's uplifting. All right first off. You know if we get like ninety five percent of people to wear masks a whole lot better chance that you'd see sports in the fall, and we're running out of the window for which to implement that. Plan, I don't think that's GONNA end up happening. The other thing is and I've said this many times on the show before, but I like reiterating eight because I think it gives people. A little bit of comfort is weird, and as cold comfort as it might be. We have always been bad at this. It is not a new thing is many things that are bad about this society tearing each other apart right now? Not. Wanting to conform to the strict standards necessary to combat pandemic is a centuries old problem. Societies have always had an issue with it. There are countries who are doing a great job, and and got more people on board, but even there there are people who will resist and not believe and think different than the scientists in the experts are telling them to, so it gives me a little bit of Weird Comfort to know like Oh okay. That isn't just a byproduct of the environment of today. We have always stunk at at battling a pandemic now that being said. We should have less of an excuse to do it now. Because more information is being shared amongst experts around the world. Everyone is battling this one together. So. Listen to the people who are experts at this and not your eighth grade. Gym Teacher! Summarize read this thing on. Read it and It said that this is all BS and you're gonNA swallow too much. Co Two, and then you know what happens. You become summarized the. The USA good at World War bad pandemics. Yeah but I'd like to look at it as a world war. You know that would be the way to look at it except that we're all fighting the same thing. Like you might see the same thing in terms of what the other major conferences do in the wake of the big ten's decision, stay tuned on that one. The ACC has delayed the start of competition for all sports except football until at least September, the I pit is supposed to host Miami of Ohio on September fifth. That's really going to disappoint Ben Rothlisberger if they don't play that game and Notre Dame was supposed to play Wisconsin. That's not gonNA. Happen Now because of the big ten's decision, but the Irish via athletic director. Jack Swore Brooke. Speaking to espn yesterday that the Irish. Confident in fact, quite the opposite swab quote, it has grown more pessimistic over the past two weeks, but I'm not to a point to say we shouldn't continue to plan. For the potential to open on time, I just think it's less likely. Notre Dame by the way is going to be in a hell of a fix if All the other power conferences even the small conferences. Smaller conferences decide to go. Conference only Your F.. Independence, our liberty Byu Army Notre. Dame New Mexico state and you mass. So everybody else would send. A conference decides to play in the conference. Get to see Notre, dame, against armies Byu, Liberty New Mexico state and you match right. I don't know if we can have America if we don't have Notre Dame football. Yeah we can. It's these are also temporary. It's not forever. You might not have it right now. But I'm hopeful that things will turn around I'm hopeful that a treatment pops up in the next month. That knocks this down into something. That's a lot more manageable until there's not and then when there's not then I'll deal with it, because all I guy right now is the hope until we get right up to the edge of having to make the decision, it's the same major league baseball. It's the same thing for hockey, and it's the same thing for the NFL when I see this happening in college football. It makes you wonder. What's the difference between college football in the NFL while the college. Okay, the you know thousands upon thousands of students, also convening there and the possibility of the disease. Of the virus spreading and doing much more harm and the likelihood of it. Filtering into the athletic program is greater now with all of. The. Measures that Major League Baseball has taken. To try and stop the virus from getting in there, and infiltrating the bubbles and stuff, they're having trouble. NBA's having some issues. It's still gonNA get through once in a while, and you have to be able to create an environment. Where you can contain quickly, I'm not sure. College allows for that professional football might. Might College definitely does not that's. That's problematic. Is College football, not being able to go does not mean professional football won't. Correct I would agree with you on that. Yeah, hockey is poised to Crank it up again as well a face three looming still haven't had. Official Verification Bob Mackenzie of tsn DOT CA. says. The vote is ongoing. We might know something as early as tonight in terms of the ratification of hockey's plan Training Camp could open Monday the penguins coaches are ready for it per the Headman Mike Sullivan He and his staff were not involved in face to. They weren't participants. But, that doesn't mean they haven't been invested all along. We. We've done a lot as a coaching staff. We've been preparing for this for quite some time. Now we we tried to think through all the potential scenarios and try to prepare for each one of them, and as we've gotten more detail in direction and clarity from the League We've gone back as a staff and and and try to Try to just add more detail to our planning process so You know we we've been. We've. We've been very involved in in the planning of the informal state processing face to even though we have limited participation in it We've spent a Lotta time on on this training camp that that we're about to embark on and in prioritize. You know what our objectives are, and how we're going to go about that process, so we. We've been preparing all along here. We you know as a coaching staff. We have two to three webex. Every week you know, we've stayed engaged as a coaching staff and and I feel really good about where we're at so You know th. This is an I think. Our Roller MS process this training camp coming up. It's going to be. Critically important to given our team an opportunity to compete and have success, and and we're trying to do everything within our power to make sure we're ready to that. Sullivan from about a week ago, he did Zoom with the media and I could tell he was fired up and ready to go, because almost all of his answers were longer than a minute in length when he gets on a roll and really briggs that you can tell, he's fired up about something Of course, the viruses are on the rise, and it appears to be heading in the wrong direction, but Mike Sullivan said that even though nobody knows how long NHL is going to be able to continue, assuming it's able to move into face three. He's concerned about today and not tomorrow. Well we had discussions with our players on you know just exercising common sense and keeping circles, tight and and making sure that you know you wearing masks in the appropriate places and you know you're not exposing yourself to unnecessary risk and just utilizing commonsense and. It's It's to everyone's. Benefit, whether it be our players or the public in general, so you know we've had those discussions with our players I think our medical staff which is led by Dr vs has done a terrific job at providing fax and information to all of us to try to guide us through this through this time of uncertainty in although we're GONNA, we're all trying to We're all trying to navigate through this treatise, uncertain time, and and and it we're fortunate to have the people that we have associated with our organization that that can guide us and help us in the in the circumstance. Just take it day by day and do the right thing, and we may get on the other side of this thing yet. ESPN reporting. It has. Gained access to the NFL's protocols for potential. Startup of training camps and the regular season and one of the things that the NFL has banned in reaction to the krona. Virus is the postgame exchanging of jerseys among players. Believe it or not. you know I know that that seems silly. Given that they're going to be knocking each other's brains out. But not. Very much though. It helps to create an atmosphere of zero unnecessary risks so that they think twice, and it all seems like really give me a break. I'm not saying it's not annoying but I understand why they're doing all that man they wanted to. They want to have the. Perception in the air of caution prevail. Well I. Guess That's one theory. I think some of this. You guys were talking about the religious exception a little while ago. That makes no sense. I think some people. Are are grasping at straws and reaction to this. and. They're doing something. I don't know why they're doing it, but they're just. They're grasping and. I'd like to see a little more thinking through the whole thing I guess is what I'm trying to go with this. If you'RE GONNA play. Not Allowing them to exchange jerseys is annoying, but it doesn't affect the game in any way shape or form the amount of things that they're telling them. They can't do in baseball. There's more egregious things in baseball than there are in football so far in terms of like. Nonsensical. Why can't you do that? Like the? The? Fifty people maximum in and outdoor gathering would if they would've called a church service with a baseball. Very religious experience for some people so come. And Watch the pirates beat the snot out of the brewers. They beat the snot out of the birth. A, our buddy, Gregg! She's a brand new comedy special It is airing on Amazon prime streaming now we're.

Here's our we are. In, the richest country in the world, intriguing, the pandemic part of our a strategy to lower the wait time to get your test is to lie to people and say you're out of tests. Dash she's like well. We didn't really know how many we had, so we figured we'd better thin it out. I think you guys should have a better count on it really.

Fiftieth Anniversary show at Fenway Park in their hometown of Boston was set to be September eighteenth of this year. It has been postponed to September fourteenth of next year. So I guess they'll be celebrating their fifty first anniversary. Forecast today. Day pretty much like yesterday. Hot Humid mid-nineties chance of a thunderstorm at seventy eight a D. V. E.. Southward off from trips. Sports joining us right now on the DVD morning. Show what's up, Seth, how are? Ruin Guide yourself. Hanging in there hanging in there, but really hopeful that we're going to get hockey and baseball back and you know college football is looking bleaker, but so far so good for hockey, and with the the phase, three and four being released and. the Date for them to report to the bubble already set. The bubble is intriguing to me for for hockey players I think they are more uniquely set up to deal with this unique circumstance of having debt play remotely than any other athlete, just by virtue of how they come up in the in their minor league system in juniors because they've they're always kind of sequestered when they're young and staying in strange places and seemingly cloistered together. From a young age, so it it seems like it might be a nate for hockey players. But what possible pitfalls do you see happening as a result of putting all these players in the same bubble in the same area while they're competing against each other? He's GonNa Create a very strange environment I mean you know it's GonNa be Weird as some of the details of the protocol. The the NHL NHL PA released. The the penguins for instance are going to get their own floor hotel and they'll be on floor fourteen. Right in the Philadelphia Flyers. Washington capitals could have four fifteen or sixteen. So it's it's GonNa. Be Strange particularly when you still have Kinda the qualifying round with you know the twelve teams in each city. You, have these teams all stacked up with one another? So it's GonNa be great, very almost artificial environment where yeah, yeah. These students are hate each other in their duke out the win the playoff series, but they are in the hotel bar or they are the hotel full so yeah I. Mean there's nothing new in the life of hockey. Players are Canadian hockey player to kind of go on these long road trips and Being, the hotel for the weekend will be the weekend. Here's going to be about two plus months. But. I, mean it's it's. It's a very strange environment. Put it mildly. Seth let's cut to the chase. What are the odds Tom? Wilson hit somebody over the head with a pool cue, and would that be a major or a double minor. I don't know if there's going to be pool halls in within the bubble of at least in Toronto is looking at the. Hotels district curiosity It's GONNA BE PRETTY high in Marriott's. That I believe you're gonna be imposing. The two hotels for the Toronto. Sign of you'll run into a pool halls. maybe A. Couple concierge break things Gasol Hotel lobby, but Not It's. It's GONNA be weird interested from from the standpoint. You have no fans there in the building and it's going to be very quiet. but you're talking to that. Some of the penguins last month or two and Mike Stahl than even a handful of times here a lot of things going to take maybe a shift or two. Maybe a period for these guys to Kinda, get locked in and realize we're playing hockey. We're GONNA. They're going to go as hard as they normally go. Even if they don't have eighteen thousand fans in the buildings, you know, scream their heads off so. You might see a little bit of awkwardness. Maybe the first shift first period, but the once they these guys can kind of locked in and they're going to go at it. Yeah I. Think One of the Toronto hotels the Royal York, at least according to Bob Mckenzie. I'm not sure if the players will be allowed to go across the street to that sausage guy that with the cart, neo umbrella. That is so popular there. They? They probably will adjust. Anything? Concerning about the potentially goofy times. Four o'clock game five something S. Not Really I mean I. It's actually pretty intriguing to me, right? I would think most hockey fans I mean. You'RE GONNA have? You know games I think staggered for like your noon. Foreign Eight, I think it was and that's in each locale so with the other one being evidence, so you're gonNA have started burt basically every two hours, and then someone's going to be like The instability basketball tournament in springtime were me. You could theoretically be watching. All Day long you know probably not being very productive in your job your life, but your hockey fans. It's it's going to be pretty intriguing I'm mainly concerned like you was the game like you've given starts noon and he goes five overtimes What does that do for other games rest today in your venue. Do you have to kind of put those aims off for the next day, but? I assume that's something that. They plan for and whatnot, but It's very just intriguing just on the surface in terms of what this might be for television viewer. Well speaking of the surface. How about playing three games on the same mice in the middle of the summertime? Yeah. That's going to be a huge practical challenging. It's probably you know. One of the many reasons, they opted handed off. The weather's not going to be as. Humid in August, TORONTO editon would be say. Pittsburgh Arizona Vegas what have you but I? It's A. It's certainly going to be a challenge that the agile has to Kinda Basin. I I guess the good thing is. This is the only thing going on these buildings. It's not like you know say what's Angeles working the? Normal timetable Los Angeles Lakers are also playing a. Alternating in said new massive square garden where. You have something going on there every other night. It seems like but. I I guess the One blessing. You know kind of sequestering everyone in quarantine everyone. Is that the thing going launch hockey? So That makes a little bit easier on the on the people that have made the ice, but yeah I mean three games one day in doing that for. Three or four weeks at the very least that's GonNa. Be a considerable challenge for other people have made any is about both venues. So. They haven't played since early March assuming they get through this actually awarded Stanley Cup. Is this a legitimate Stanley Cup right up there in equal to any other or is this? An award at the end of tournament that is done to try to ease the economic damage in provide some much-needed entertainment and normalcy in in a bad time. It's probably both I mean. This isn't the only time the show's has awarded a Stanley Cup under. You know unique circumstances and they've. They've given it out two seasons when Navy only played forty eight games during the regular season due to work stoppages. you know when the Patriots won? The Stanley Cup in Nineteen ninety-two. Does anyone really remember that there was a twelve day strike, but by the players a? Stanley Cup until June night. You're earlier members at so. This is very unique. Obviously This is very unique. History of our time, regardless of sports politics, Lagat but. I, it's going to be very strange seeing them win the Stanley Cup whoever? The the early days of October. I don't think I'd say five ten years going to sit there and say oh. The Penguins, the blues, the brewers are already there the the asterik champions or whatever but. It's very strange, but I don't think it makes it any less legitimate in terms of who would ultimately win the Stanley Cup. Jeff! Did you ever see the movie taps? I did, not know. All right, it's A. It's a movie about a Military Academy Tom Cruise Sean Penn.. I'd say that. That's right near the end of that movie. After that. The students have basically Just Said they're not leaving even though they wanted to close the school down as being funded and the the national. Guard comes in and they finally said Hey. We're done with. The standoff were coming in and we're going to get you guys. This is your last chance right now. Step across the line and you're going to be safe and there's GonNa be no punishment. And then nobody moves, and then finally one kid takes a step forward, and then another kid takes a step forward, and then they get emboldened by it, and then a whole bunch of them go cryan apparent since I. Thank God this is over I, didn't want really I. I got pressured into being here for a long time. The NHL is allowing players up to seventy two hours before the puck drops on the first game, the right to opt out. Penalty free. Do you anticipate? Anybody step across the line and then other people going. You know now that you mention it I don't feel so great about it either. Well I mean I. Don't know if they can get the equipment. George C. Scott the kind of pressure them in this, but. You might you might have a few guys. Come out of this just based on family, reasons and things like that media carry price I, I you know the Montreal who famously Oh kind of at the center of whether or not they should be doing a twelve team playoff or not, but he's been pretty open as far as being lukewarm. This whole idea is his family over British Columbia. He's been trading here in Montreal few weeks. He's going to be stuck in. TORONTO. WLI At least for three games I suppose but I mean. There's some people Edmundo vinick Minnesota wild. Another hunter he's been proven as far as being sequestered from his family I. Think a member. His family's health concerns that he's pretty open about two so Yeah, you might have a few players to step forwards. Hey, I got a family situation. Right I got a personal situation whatever it might be that step out, but. I would suspect the vast majority of the The players involved in this and I would say maybe ninety eight ninety nine percent of the are going to go through with this assuming nothing kind of bottoms out here the way we see maybe some other sports. Seth raw triple sports. Thanks so much for your time this morning. Man, we appreciate it. Anytime guys I appreciate the invite ticker. We'll see Mike Scott. Report when we come back here on the morning, show on for details. Sports. Mike pursue your sports right now. On the DVD morning. Show with going on. Let's pick it up this hour where we just left off with seth roar. Ball and keep the hockey talk going specifically. The Penguins and the impending opening a training camp which still waiting. On the official ratification of the NHL's. Protocol and planned for phase three, which is training camps, opening on Monday face four, which is the resumption of the season and the four year extension for the collective bargaining agreement The penguins are scheduled to play the. Montreal Canadians in best of five. Qualifying round series. Here's what the head coach. Mike Sullivan thinks about that match up. Well they're. They're really good team. You know they're fast. They've got a great counterattack game. They have good structure. They have solid goaltending Defensive Team and so we expect We expect the hard fought battle. It's GonNa be a scenario where we know we're going to have to fight for our scoring chances. We're going to have to have an element of patients associated with our game so that we don't force plays that aren't there and turned into a high risk team so We know it's going to be a hard-fought dial. Know there's a lot of parody in this lead to such a fine line between winning and losing. You know the difference between the you know. The top five teams in the middle of the pack teams is not that significant. That's just the reality of of the League in today's game. Every night there's a hard fought battle regardless who your opponent is, and and that's what we expect. We have a lot of respect for Montreal and the players that they have the coaching staff that they have This is a well coached group and we're going to have to be at our very best. You wouldn't expect him to say anything less in advance of a series, but. Acknowledging the parody that does exist in the NHL. He a point about that. If not for a swoon temporary swoon, right before. Play was paused by the NHL, the penguins could have easily been a top four qualifier and been playing in the round robin, instead of the I'll find round and Canadians if the season had played out to its conclusion might not have made the playoffs so. It's a pretty good match up for the penguins. Montreal did beat Pittsburgh four to one back on December the tenth, but that was then and a lot has happened since. I'm trying to remember December tenth. well. What what I can't tell you is is that? my guess. Is that on December tenth of Montreal played better than we did. And that's why they won We are going through the process as a coaching staff right now at at. Pretty shouting Montreal and looking at. Their most recent games, and and watching some of our games. That we played against them. you know as a coaching staff. We're always cautious to go back to far. In the season, because you know personnel, changes, and subtle subtleties to their their tactics change, and so we try to. We try to stay with with most recent, and and that's the process that we've gone through, but but what I can tell you is is that Montreal is a real good team their biggest strength in my opinion is they're. They're structure, their team, speed, counterattacking and and obviously. Obviously. There's a real good goaltending, so we know it's going to be hard for series. We're going to have to be prepared to be at our very best and and you know there are certain things that that will point out to our players tendencies that that Montreal may have and and so We'll make sure that our players are well prepared for what we're about to face in the series. But we've got a lot of respect for Montreal and how good their? Pirates tried to play intra. Squad game at PNC park yesterday spring, training, two point Oh continued, but rain had other ideas to intra squad game got washed out. Manager Derek Shelton last night in his daily Zoom session. Confirmed that the prospect Brian Hayes not on the field yesterday, and has not been on the field, a participating in a workout since Spring Training two point zero commenced a week ago today, Hayes falls into the same category as Ki Kiani Kella the presumed closer. Those guys have not yet worked out. No reason given the parts have announced a too positive test for the coronavirus. Right Hander Blake Cedar. Island and outfielder Socrates Brio big ten conference announced yesterday that it's going to go conference only for all of its false sports that includes football. The conference in a statement cited unprecedented times as the reason for making that decision, Penn state was supposed to play Kent State on September the fifth. Visit Virginia Tech on September the twelfth and host. San Jose state on September the nineteenth. Those games have been wiped from the schedule. The, big ten. If it play it all is going to go conference. Only work everything. Another reason that this move is being made according to the big ten the flexibility allows in the potential event that football starts, but has to stop for whatever reason in the fall I would anticipate other conferences. The following suit see if that happens in the next few days or next week, and here's the trickle down effect on that Randy. This is These figures obtained by USA Today Sports the mid American conference specifically central Michigan Bowling Green Ball, state, and northern. Illinois, those four schools each had to game scheduled against big ten teams. Bowling Green was going to make a combined. Combined two point two million for playing Ohio State and Illinois Central. Michigan was going to make two point one five million for playing Nebraska and northwestern. You take that Kinda payday out of the athletic budgets of a mid American conference, school and things are going to change that. Yeah Ball state just kept put another two million on Visa Card and move on like nothing happened Central Michigan is one of the schools that has already dropped. Sports Stanford announced this week that it was dropping eleven sports, no college basketball and no college football. Is Not something you can just work around. It changes the game. Well like I. Said says something happens in the next month or so to make it a whole lot easier for them to be able to pull this off. I would love to see college football. It is distinctly different from professional football in that they are. At a college! With with tens of thousands of other people. NFL doesn't have to yeah so the. NFL doesn't have to contend with that same Obstacle but I'm going to remain hopeful. Right up until they tell me in eight happened. You know. The other part of that is I think I could watch a pro football game. Let's say the steelers figure out. They can have twenty thousand people in there. You know something wall below capacity. I'm fine with that college and you need the Big Stadium. You need the band. You need the colored pageantry, don't you? I mean I'll still if they play empty stadiums, I'll still watch that too, but. Yeah well remotely be the same thing emotionally I mean he just something about that the colors and the music and All that all that stuff that we associate with college football. In a fight song out! Mike if you're starving, someone gives you a hot dog. You don't go. No, mustard. No thanks. You're getting crushed. But I won't enjoy it. As well not as much not as much well. Being satiated is more important than enjoying all of it at this point, so let's just hope we are Watching football in a couple of months. The baseball stuff seems to be going okay so far right? I mean there are some people who are coming down with Covid, but like not huge numbers right now a couple here a couple of their after an initial like you know, the initial testing revealed eight people at a time and stuff like that and hasn't been too bad as it. Context for it, but I was anticipating that would be positive tests. I'm going to be ridiculous. Assume there wouldn't be and I was assuming there would be some. Opt outs, but it seems like it's reasonable manageable representative so far. Okay when we come back from the break foul porter. Gets to hairband us into the weekend. We had a lot of guests today, so we weren't able to get as many hair bands on as we wanted to. Today yesterday. Value Dot rocked the whole morning. And today we were going hairband which we only basically got to do. In the six o'clock hour, so we'll do one more on the way out here. Quick break, we'll come dot com. To the morning show. Yesterday.

Hardy Song all right. How many? Something I don't WanNa valid to end the show on Friday now. All right so I was like wow. This is a better song from. That's a bad year that we have good hair.

The morning, show, poison nothing, but a good time that was the first single off of open up and say in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and my fa-, Bio, the besides for that are living for the minute and look, but you can't touch which are too great titles for hairband songs. which living for the minute? Yeah? Which is a? Philosophy that came back to bite a lot of right in the ass to be quite frankly. Did Not consider some of their lifestyle choices. At that time we're going to not pay dividends in the long run, but my favorite thing about this is the music video. For nothing but a good time. Is this restaurant employee washing dishes, and as boss comes in and tells them to turn off that rock and roll because that was the thing back then is that? Everyone in the eighties was convinced that parents hated rock and roll and I. Don't think they cared anymore, but we had to keep that Relationship Alive. It seemed yeah, if we didn't have that, Miss. It didn't seem as. Cool, so the manager tells that Damn Rock and roll and says you're being paid to wash dishes not to listen to that crap, and he says you move at two speeds slow and stop. Then the manager leaves and the dishwashers like screw this and he kicks open a door. That's next to the dishwashing basin, and it's a concert hall where poison as just tearing up the play. Just a big party does out and they rock out. A good time, and when the song is over, the manager returns discovering. Much to his surprise, all the dishes are washed. So, magically the power of enjoying a little rock and roll. Cleaned all the dishes. SPIC and span we'll get that. I do not remember that video at all. It's so stupid.
