"And Divine is, as always, Small Saturday is on a Friday, we are beyond our lunchtime which turns Friday into Small Saturday, August 25th, and this episode is 4 .24 from This Mic Rich! And from This Mic Matt. Wow, yeah, that was good. Yeah, I liked that. Well I decided to concentrate this time and not be spacing out. Well that was a good idea because a lot of times, you know, I don't even know you here, sometimes you're sleeping. Well, that's true, but then there's other times that I might just throw you off and I just didn't feel like doing that today. Not today? No, you know, you're usually very professional when you start out and you have all the essentials and you know, things ready to go and then I start throwing monkey wrenches into the engine and it could start setting you off, so I decided I might just try to behave today. Yeah, you know what, by the way, listen up, this is something you need to know, okay? You can't believe everything you hear. Yeah, that's true, just like you can't believe what I just said. But let me just say it again, you can believe everything you hear. You can't believe it? No, no, but you can repeat it. Yeah, that's true. Like what you just did. Yeah, exactly what I did. You're playing mind games with me. No, I don't, I don't have to, you have, yesterday. You know, you keep playing these games. Well, two days ago you said you have army of brain cells gone. Yeah, what I think you're doing is trying to push me into having to lay down on a couch and get some counseling. Well, I don't think that would help. I'm starting to feel like with all these little innuendos and little things that you're saying is that you're trying to tell everybody that I'm a head case. Well, everybody knows by now that you are, so I don't have to do much of work. I mean, that's pretty clear. All right. By now, everybody knows that. All right, I'm fine with it. You've been working on it a very long time, you know, to be very clear that you are head case. Yeah, that's it. That doesn't take you too much work. I asked somebody one time, I said, you know, how much did you pay to get that stoop? He looked at me like, and he played along with it, he goes, about $30 ,000. 30? $3 ,000. Why? What did you pay for? I don't know, nothing. He just picked a number out of his you know what. So now every time I see him sometimes just joking around like we do, I ask him, yeah, how much you pay? He goes, about $3 ,000. Well, nice. Well, I mean, if somebody asked you that - It's kind of cheap for today. Yeah. I wonder what it'd be inflation wise. It's good investment. 30 ,000. Anyway. I mean, I kind of like it when I can look stupid and be stupid because - Yeah, no responsibility. Not just that, it's just nobody wants anything from you then. Oh, yeah. You're taking me along. Hey, he's stupid. Yeah, it works for me. It works for everything. That's good. I've been doing this for years. Yeah, you're an expert. My grandfather always told me, hey, listen, if your wife, if you're married and your wife asks you to vacuum the carpet, you need to play stupid. Yeah, really? How do you do that? He never explained that, but he says, if you don't, you're going to be vacuuming the rest of your life. He was so right. Yeah, I mean, you guys had electricity behind the Iron Curtain, didn't you? Oh, well, sometime. Well, you probably could have used the excuse of just walk around with the cord in his head pretending like he doesn't know where to plug it in. I think what they had, they had a central station somewhere where they put all these people that protested against the communists in jail and they were on the bicycles. Bicycles where else? Where else? Already echoed it. Four days ago. Oh, my gosh. And so if they just got tired and tuckered out, electricity no more, everybody's off their bicycle. So when they say here in the United States, they say, hey, we need to save the energy, solar and all this, and I go like, huh, just put the bicycles in the jail, you got so many skinny people. Oh, yeah. Yeah, right. That's good. Nobody thought about that yet. Keep them occupied. I think there's like just in the state of California that one state has 33 prisons. It's better than Windmill. I think it's anywhere between at any given time 120 ,000 to 160 ,000 inmates. I mean, how many bikes you get every one of them a bicycle? I would just like, listen, it's better than Windmill. Yeah. It works all the time. Yeah, it works all the time. Three shifts, right? And then just like, hey, Mary just turned on the oven, let's go, boys. She's baking cookies for police department. Don't let her disappointed. And it's kind of a way for them to give back to society, restitution. Yeah. Hey, you only got about 50 million more cycles to do. Imagine. Have a meter up there. How many watts did they create that give each prisoner a certain amount of money for every watt they create? It would be a problem if Mary was the lady put you in jail and you paddle a little faster to burn the cookies. I remember you. Or get aggression out instead of actually, you know, creating another crime and doing something horrible to Mary. You take it out on the bicycle and create more energy. Yeah. What is the company that, you know, they have this TV in front of that and it's like a stationary bag and you, they sell them, it's like $3 ,000 and membership and all this. That's a better thing. Look at you. You were far away from bicycle. I don't think they made bicycle for this weight limits. I think it would have been a better $3 ,000 to be spent on that bicycle than paid $3 ,000 to get stupid. Yeah, exactly. I have a friend and he proved to be stupid for $3 ,000 because he bought one. Yeah. He bought one for his wife. What was he trying to tell his wife? No. You need to, you need this thing. No, she wanted it. Oh yeah. She asked him. I thought he might've been saying, Hey, you need this cause I think you're getting a little fat. It's not a way to kind of send a message, but she wanted it, she wanted it for Christmas. It's this bicycle. I forget the name of it. Somebody would have figured it out later. And they sell it in the water side shop. They used to have this store there and, uh, uh, she, she Peloton is called Peloton. Oh yeah. You don't know. How would you know? So they had this store and you know, you pay membership and again, I give a paddle with people and the screen and you know, it's like a, almost like I think it was like a video game. You playing with other people. Yeah. And there's a person, you know, that looks like a real person, but it's recorded. And um, so she asked him to buy the bike right for Christmas. He was like, now I was doing the Fauci virus. Everything was shut down. Well, I'm home. I need to be moving on those. And he was like, now she told me big before the Christmas when I was supposed to get that right. So we ordered that and um, we were sitting here and he said, well, it's going to come within a month or whatever. So after Christmas and I said, I gave her two weeks and then like six months later, I forgot. He came here and he looked at me and says, it's, it's in the, uh, it's in the storage. I said, what is it? Well, that $3 ,000 bike. I said, why are you moving? No, it was not even two weeks. It was less than two weeks. She shoved it underneath of the bed, so I put it in the storage. You should have told them to put it in a garage sale. So then something happened. There was a recall or something like, uh, some, whatever it was, something wrong in the bike. So he read that somewhere in the newspaper that Peloton is offering a exchange or return the money. He immediately returned the money. That thing was out of the storage and back into the store and he got his money back. So he was stupid for $3 ,000 just for a little bit. Yeah. Not very long. And then he came back to his senses and took it back and got his $3 ,000 back. There you go. Let's go to officials. Why don't you go to officials? But we created now the perfect example, how to occupy people in jail. Maybe they can get a little money out of it. I mean, or at least pay restitution for all their bills. The court case, you know how much it costs to run court victims, you know, get repay victims for, I don't know anything about that, but I'm just saying instead of solo systems and all this, we can have, you know, them doing something, but you're, you're smart. It's killing two birds. Yeah, you are. It's killing two birds of one stone. You're genius. Thank you. And they're, they're, you're a genius and they're getting exercise. They're providing energy, a cheap source of energy that's not, you know, ruining the ozone layer. Unless they're farting. And then they can take whatever monies they're making from the kilowatts and whatever they pay an inmate when, you know, like in their industries and work and they could pay the people back. If somebody steals my idea, I'll sue them. We just said it here. Yeah. Right. Okay. It's recorded. Right. There's a timestamp. And I think it'd be good. It's just telling that you got the idea from, from, from your grandfather and living behind the iron curse. Yes, exactly. So, so it's 11 PM on 25th of what is it? Small Saturday. Friday. Yeah. Of August. Now that's the timestamp right here. If somebody dared to steal my idea, we'd have consultation. Right. What are we going to do to them? Just let it go. Do you get some shank? Yeah, don't shank them. Somebody will shank them. Right. Yeah. That's it. We don't know yet who. Yeah. You never know. Or they might, you know, you never know. Something, something that happened. Yeah. God will send somebody with sandpaper as a toilet paper or whatever. 50 grade. We are 50 grade. Instead of 220. Essentials of officials. Julian Bruce Traquita, Apache Music.

Oh, yeah. Yeah, with a big red cut. What's the weather? Well, you know, the weather is, again, it's going to be 93, they say, today. And it's going to be a low of about 76, I believe I read. And it's clear as a bell all day today. Is it? Yeah. I like that. Very little clouds. Well, there's something coming, right? Yeah. I see there's X's on the maps. I don't know what that's supposed to mean. Well, we don't want to, yeah, I guess there's some tropical storms out in the Atlantic. Yeah? Yeah. That's X's. But once we, yeah, X's and O's. Oh, you know what? We're going to talk about X's and O's today. What have you been doing 452 on Thursday? That was yesterday afternoon. Have you been around airports sometime? Why? Because yesterday wasn't Tuesday. What's wrong with you? Thursday. Oh. That was yesterday. You said Tuesday, I think. No, I said Thursday. I know what I'm saying. I know what we'll do is we'll just listen to this. We're going to end up listening to this. All right. So what have you been doing? I've been... Nothing. Nothing. Okay. So just so you know, you missed the tornado. Oh, really? Was that up in Cape Coral? No, at the airport road. Oh, wow. One roof and nine cars. That's it. Oh, you know what? That's crazy. And you didn't report it as a weatherman. You didn't even say it. I did tell... Listen to me. Yes? When I gave the weather report for Thursday, I told you that it was going to storm... Let me see if I could be a sage. Oh, yeah. You said that. I said that it was going to have rain very bad at between five and six. Yes. You said that. I apologize. Yeah. You need to. Sincerely, categorically. Right. Sincerely, categorically, I apologize. Thank you. And I could... You know, I could probably... But it says five. This was 452. Okay. So I was... I take my apologies back. All right. You were wrong. You're an Indian giver. I heard it the other day. Yeah. All right. So University Hodge is closing in four miles. Did you know that? I did not know that. Yeah. So they're going to cease to exist. Operations are over. I don't know what happened, but that's the news. You can Google it and you can find out more about Hodge University. You wonder with everything consolidating and with the Fauci virus and all these types of things, how many of these institutions are going to be closed anyway just with technology? Everything is done by the computer. Well... I mean, why do you need the commercial space? You don't have students coming to the classroom, which I think is not the greatest thing. You know, you don't have that human interaction. It's important. So I mean, the social... I mean, we're social human beings. You know, like what I would do... Like monkeys? Yeah. If you don't show up here, what would I do? You tell me. I don't know. Well, I can tell you. Right. I'll be alone. Well, you'd be alone, but you wouldn't be... You wouldn't be doing nothing. Well, what I just found out is we cannot longer provide the quality educational program that we have provided over the past 33 years. And what was that? That's what the statement says in the university. That's what I'm saying. According to the university faculty, advisors are working to establish partnership and trying to reopen. But I don't... I mean, maybe the problem is also additional to that. You know... That's just financial challenges. But declining also number of the teachers. I mean, seriously, it's expensive for people to live here. Yeah. Yeah, it is. And not on a teacher's salary, but also just the total cost for education. Would it cost somebody to go into debt to... Yeah. You know, so in order to keep the institution going and paying your professors and all that, you need people to be signing up for classes and paying tuition. Yeah. Maybe it's just the whole kit and caboodle that's the problem. Maybe we have to start thinking as a society, you know, what's a better, more efficient, cheaper way to educate people? Does that make sense to you? I mean, listen, I've been asking a long time, what I mean, the education is one thing, but you know, what are you learning in the school? It's a lot of times, you know, some of the things are very old school books and you're learning something like which you're never going to use. So, I mean, that whole thing needs to be restructured. Yeah, I would think it needs to be more restructured. Remember when we were talking yesterday about the trades, right? Let me just give you a little bit of philosophy from my perspective. I like your philosophies. So what you have is that we kind of have this like cookie cutter thing. It actually comes from a Prussian educational system, believe it or not, out of Germany. And it kind of made its way here into the United States and we kind of made it like a factory type of industrial factory deal where everybody goes through the same thing and they get their little stamp of approval in this paper. You know, everybody, let me ask you this. You think everybody's called to be a doctor? No. Do you think everybody's called to be a pharmacist? No. Everybody called to be a lawyer? I think everybody would like to be. Well, especially you. Does everybody have the same intellect? Is everybody's IQ the same? Well, in this room I can tell no.

Donald Trump Prepares to Surrender in the City He Largely Built
"Just a couple hours Donald Trump will be arraigned he was indicted last week. We're going to finally hopefully get some specifics of the indictment. Donald Trump will be surrendering in front of the Manhattan courthouse. And I just want you to take a pause here and I don't think anyone's making this argument. I want you to imagine Donald Trump's mindset as he landed yesterday on Trump force one. Landed, I think he landed Laguardia or JFK. It's irrelevant where he landed. But as you had a motorcade coming in New York City, you could imagine the emotion that Donald Trump was feeling. As he was looking at a skyline that he largely developed. He was looking at a city that he largely built. Looking at a city saved. Looking at the convention center deal that was his first deal in Manhattan. Looking at what was once called the hotel Commodore, now the grand Hyatt right near Grand Central station. Looking at the woman rink in Central Park that he did the deal quicker than anybody else. Looking at Trump Tower. Looking at the Plaza hotel that he was an owner of. Looking at the real estate portfolio that he built, but not just his own personal portfolio, the streets that he helped cleaned up. The charities he supported. So the same city that he was heavily involved in. He was considered to be mister New York. In fact, when I was growing up, and I first visited New York City, if you would have said, hey, who is the first billionaire that comes to mind here? It wouldn't be a hedge fund guy. It wouldn't be a celebrity to be Donald Trump. It'd be the man who built things. It'd be the man who wrote the art of the deal. And make no mistake. That is part of this entire thing. They want to publicly humiliate him in the city that he largely built.

"Data determinant. Right now it's inflation is public enemy number one. And that's why I think the focus is whether they go 75 or 50 at the September meeting. So Priya does TD securities. Do you guys have an official recession call or do you think this fed can soft land it? So we have a slowdown in growth call. You're 0% growth. When you're growing at zero, it doesn't take a lot to slip into recession. So it's a shallow slowdown and growth that we do pencil in. And that's why we've penciled in rate cuts in the end of QT next year. All right, I'm going to talk corporate real estate. So TD security, you guys are one Vanderbilt. Is that right? Priya? It is, yes. Building right next to Grand Central. Exactly. Awesome. I mean, tell us how I'm not sure you even go there, if you work from home, but it looked when they were putting it up. I was like, holy cow, this is going to be awesome. Now it's a great building. I've been in the office and for over a year. And it's filling up now that I think we're we have a few flaws and there's the summit. If you haven't been to the summit, it's great.

Let's do that. Yeah, we can walk down. We need the invite, though. Yes, we need the environment. All right. So just real quickly here, coming up in a couple of weeks from this Federal Reserve. What would be a mistake where everybody goes, oh boy, here we go. You know, you can think of two sided mistakes. I think one mistake would be if they suggest that they might be getting close to being done. Because just because oil prices are lower and inflation seems to have peaked, that would be one mistake. The other mistake would be to say, oh no, we're going until 2% on year over year inflation. I think that's a mistake. I'm really nervous about because it just inflation has a very lagging indicator. And if they ignore growth, they're absolutely going to overdo it because inflation is going to take a while to come down to respond to slowing growth. So there are two sided risks after Jackson or more concerned about the overdoing because we need to really win that inflation back. Even if it means a slowing growth. This fed, man, if they waited too long to raise rates and now they're going to raise rates too late and too long. And then maybe they'll even cut them too soon. We'll have to see pretty miserable.

Oh, well, 35 years of community on New Jersey transit. And apparently they're about to upgrade Penn station. I don't believe that. I do not believe that dude. The day I die is the day they will complete it. Can I just tell you I had a really interesting train experience. It was my first time on metro north. That's not too bad. This time. By the way, did you feel like a queen when you went into Grand Central station? I did feel like a queen. Isn't it? You just feel like it is lovely. You just feel like you're at the capital of the world. So for everything is revolving around you. Right. So for those who don't live in New York metro area Grand Central is absolutely an museum of a train station. It's a palace. It is a world class like you see in Europe. Penn station, on the other hand, is absolutely. It's the worst thing you can imagine. Worst experience ever. And it is busier than Grand Central. Jakarta has a better train station. Exactly. Penn station. Now that's the bad news. And it's bad. But the good news is apparently the money's been allocated the plans are set. They're ready to go. Well, they're actually doing construction work now as we speak. So hopefully and maybe ten years when I stopped commuting, it'll be all set to go. Well, it did just renovate the Amtrak part of that of part of Penn station. Did they? And that's actually really nice. That is very nice. But nobody uses it. Well, I don't use it because the New Jersey transit doesn't go in there. But apparently it's all happening. It's all going to happen. And so hopefully hopefully at some point in my life. Anyway, how was the metro north? As is a metro north, they need to add Wi-Fi. I was like, there's no service. That's a problem everywhere. Yeah, but there's Wi-Fi on the New York subway. Why is there not one? It doesn't really work. I mean, it's there, but it doesn't work that way. And even Amtrak doesn't. There's Wi-Fi on planes, but you can't really do anything with it.

"On the towers that No one was quite certain what was coming next? And so Manhattan? Certainly the first time in my experience and perhaps the first time ever was literally locked down and shut down. In fact, for a long period of time, New York was literally locked down from all angles from the water from the air and certainly from the ground, And so they certainly dissuaded everyone from going down there. It was really a question of would they ultimately relieve some of the lockdown for those people to get home? Ultimately, they did, And so I made my way. Hey. Back to Grand Central from where I came, and it was the most surreal experience, Rob because it was probably four o'clock in the afternoon. New York Grand Quiet I had never known The city to have that sort of eerie quiet. I think one universal experience that people can recall from New York. It's loud. It's always moving and my walk up Fifth Avenue that day was something I'll never forget. Because it was literally not one vehicle on the road, even parts. I was literally walking in the centre of Fifth Avenue that day, heading back to the train station. It was not one vehicle on the road. Jim, You said you were about two miles away from the scene. Did you experience the dust and debris from where you were when you walk to Grand Central? That's a good question. Not that day, Rob because of the weather pattern. It was interesting because when I got to Grand Central again, the only movement you heard where people getting to the trends, nothing was said. I believe there were announcements of the trains. But one thing was evidently clear and had changed everything. And that certainly was the military presence in Grand Central, that suddenly in the morning where it was all civilians, mostly people like myself heading to work. Dress for the occasion. Of course, we were far less casual back then. But in the evening commute all the trains every vestibule. The train were filled with people bearing quite heavy arms. And not one word was spoken in the train ride home. I can relate to that gym. I was caught up in the 77 tube attacks in London. In 2000 and five passing through one of the underground stations just 30 minutes before it was bombed. And I can recall that journey home being long and subdued, Undoubtedly. When it comes to 9 11 1st responders played a crucial role that day. They sure did. I think In retrospect, we certainly had a much greater appreciation for any and all first responders and every night on the news, if any remains were found a specially those Who were part of the police and the fire fighters. The work on the site would stop. And they would effectively have a for lack of a better phrase mini ceremony Commemorating a fallen comrade, and that was a pretty powerful Moment and that was repeated quite often on the local news, You know, I think we all appreciated police and fire before 9 11 but post 9 11. I think that it literally was a question of life or death. And I'll tell you a funny sidebar store and I don't know why I quite remember this at this moment, but I do remember in New York City, you know, we would all go through routine fire drills prior to 9 11, Rob. No one took them very seriously. I remember distinctly the first fire drill post 9 11. No one said a word. Everyone followed it as if their life depended on it. And you know what it did? Yeah. I can understand that. The first responders from the moment that the towers were first hit, did an unbelievable, heroic job. Everyone obviously remembers that and one of the other things that I remember very vividly too. Where the people immediately who were sitting in front of our standing in front of Penn Station Grand Central Station, the bus station anywhere with photos of loved ones. They were posting bills for those who haven't been heard from and That was something that again none of us was prepared for, and it was very difficult. I do remember a couple weeks after 9 11 by virtue of an alumni connection. One of the alumni directors from my alma mater had family that worked for many, many years, if not generations in the fire Department, and he thought it would be good to visit one of the fire stations at his father had been. I believe a captain on to bring food and just give them our support, and we did. And from my vantage point, I felt almost embarrassed because I didn't know quite what to say. But I think they appreciated anomaly, our being there but talking about anything but 9 11 just as a simple distraction. In fact, we started talking about music. And isn't that the universal language? Shall we say, Jim, We need to take a short break but do join us again after that, where we'll be talking to Jim Freeman.

"Kevin Dean's. The uncertainty in the economic recovery continues as the pandemic linger lingers. But a new outlook from the University of Michigan shows the city of Detroit could lead the state and job growth Despite pandemic setbacks. W Jr's senior news analyst, Marie Osborne takes a look. Good morning, Marie. Hi, Kevin. And as you said, this outlook was done by the University of Michigan. It extends all the way out to 2026. It found the city of Detroit is sink faster job growth in the state. Overall, some businesses, though, like hotels could leg behind for years, and we'll get more on that in just a second. The unemployment rate for Detroit residents is at 8.5 that was in June or about 3% below its pre pandemic level. That compares to the state's overall 5% rate. In June. Detroit's unemployment rate averaged 22% in 2020 peaked at nearly 39% in May of 2020. Now. The outlook anticipates total employment for jobs that are located in Detroit to recover its pre pandemic level by the third quarter of 2022. It will continue to grow, according to the U of M researchers. There are several reasons for this, and these are some of the big projects that are now underway in the city of Detroit. These are just a few of them the stolen to Smack Avenue Assembly plant that's going to bring 5000 new jobs. 3000 of them guaranteed for Detroit residents. There's the retooling of the General Motors factory zero at the Hamtramck Assembly center. Ongoing construction of the new Gordie Howe International Bridge to Canada, Ford Motor Company's New Detroit campus in court town, and, of course that includes that redevelopment of the Michigan Central Station. There's also the 2022 opening of the new Amazon distribution center at the Old State Fairgrounds that's supposed to create 1200 new full time jobs. There's the ongoing construction of a large new downtown building and tower at the site of the former Hudson's department store. Also, they didn't mention this in the U of M a report. But there's a plant a plan rather buy auto supplier Lear to set up a seat manufacturing in the site of the former Cadillac stamping plant on the city's east side. There is just one downbeat to all this in the forecast, and it is for a slower recovery in the leisure and hotel sectors. Cabin employment in that category would be 10% below its pre covid level. By late 20 to 2022 still 3% below that level by the end of 2026, so that one is going to be a bit sluggish. I was wondering how Detroit was going to recover faster than the rest of the state. And you explained it pretty good. They are finding big jobs, big projects that are going to provide lots of jobs. It's going to make a huge difference. Yeah, and these are projects. Mind you that had started most of them before the pandemic. I mean this Atlantis Mack Avenue Assembly plant and so forth. All of these. We were in the works before the pandemic started and had huge commitments. They weren't just ideas. They were actually already started. And a lot of these, of course guaranteed. That's for Detroiters. So that's another big thing. And as we Look at this long list of big projects. I mean, you could honestly say that any city would be happy to have just one of these projects. Oh, my gosh, This is It's really exciting as you list some of those things off. Obviously, you know little plants That's important to get those jobs. But when you think about what's happening at Hudson's or Amazon or Ford's Cork town that is just going to be so exciting, and also when you think about and here's a good example of this when you think about what's happening. With the vacant Michigan Central station, which, by the way, they are just plowing ahead with that project. There's a lot of development along Michigan Avenue already, of course, but there's lots of restaurants along that strip there, and we all know about the famous ones like slows and so on there there but that has spawned this Michigan Central station development has spawned a lot of other, uh, development in that area. So this is going to be a lot of other jobs. And you know that this is going to also be true for some of these other projects, so you're going to have to have Things to support all those people that are going to be going into that as an example the central station you need to have food outlets. You need to have diners. You need to have, uh, dry cleaners, you name it and these things are now going to start to crop up around these areas. Yeah, I was thinking that the low vaccination rates in Detroit might slow their ability to come back because they may not have enough workers. Or they may not have enough stores open things like that. But all of these big projects are going to make a huge difference. And I think about the cork town area and I've watched property values over there. Just go up and up and up. It's unbelievable. And that was you know, as they watched the old train station announcements about it actually, finally coming back. You can see why that would happen. But you think about that area what It was like when Tiger Stadium was booming over there in Cork town, and how cool it was. And how many little mom and pop shops there were and you could walk up and down Michigan Avenue. Uh, for a long way and really enjoy yourself going in and out of different places, and a lot of that went away. A lot of it. Just it disappeared when Tiger Stadium disappeared. And we've been seeing it come back before the pandemic, some really cool restaurants and of course we are. We have lost a couple of cool restaurants over that area, too, because of the pandemic. But as as this project comes back at the train station forward what they're doing over there, you can almost picture that whole area being back in Detroit's prime, You know when, when, when there were so many residents in Detroit and people were down. Uh, at Tiger Stadium and in that area. I mean, it's really exciting to think what could happen just in that one little section of town exactly and one of the big things that's happening in the cork town area and you started talking about that was property values, and even though they are on their way up, there's a lot of people moving into that area and have been we should say for the last Uh, decade or so. So there's a lot of that's what you want. You want a popular, um, densely populated with people actually living in that area, not just coming into work and then leaving which Of course, was the problem with many parts of the city of Detroit for a very long time. Now, people are actually living in a lot of these sections of town and cork towns. Just great. I mean, anybody has been down there and, uh, well, let's just say pre pandemic. Um there's just a lot of very cool things happening there A lot of great restaurants, a lot of little things to see in there. And then you think about what's happening on the Hudson site, and, uh I'm going to guess you are probably a little too young to remember Hudson's I I feel like I'm just a little too young. You remember? Oh, absolutely. I remember Hudson. I mean, I was I was very, very young, but I do remember going with my mother taking the bus. We lived in the suburbs, but I remember taking the bus. Downtown to Hudson's, uh, to buy. I remember very specifically to by very special gifts like for a wedding or if my father was traveling overseas to see his family. We would always buy those Gifts at that store. Yeah, that was the best place to see Santa Claus as well, Christmas time. And, uh, but so you can imagine for our parents what That area was like back in the day. And even though I know Gilbert has announced, they're downsizing it some from the original plans..

You're just doing it while you're married, so they very carefully hammered out a separation contract. Now there's a lot of stuff to separate this $130 billion.

"Its three billion dollar plan to redevelop the airport and that was focused largely on the overhaul and expansion of the terminal one building and the airport authority and its airline partners already committed spending a half a half a billion toward related transportation projects including building and transit station serving terminals wanted to. So that's how this is all kind of tied together as from that original project and we've all been in that new terminal you've been through it to you. Maybe you'll through tonight really right. So yeah it's it's a nice terminal it. They really did do a great job of modernized. The airport a lot. was kinda tired like beyond ten years ago. It was old. You know it was convenient small but we're not a small city so yeah yup so. The san diego officials are saying no matter which option is ultimately chosen. It will be a vast improvement over what exists now which is a bus route. There's about ten to fifteen right between downtown. Santa fe depot in the airport so ninety nine percent of the trips to the airport or completed via private vehicle. So that's like the over left based on preliminary studies released sandbag. They're trying to do a nonstop underground people mover from the network site which could also reduce airport traffic to so which would be nice to because the traffic always pretty heavy around there. So we'll see what comes out of this. This is gonna be a really interesting project something that we definitely wanna fall. It's obviously massively ambitious. Right doing underground. Yeah you know so Years ago you know that universities have this university challenge whereas the three universities in in san diego county. I guess there's more universities For a real estate the. Sds you usc and san diego state. Yeah yes exactly. Does those three schools they do this. They redeveloped the site and it was. It was obviously very poignant because this is something that's clearly probably going to happen to some extent site who knows if it will have an underground railroad or anything like that but the point was that the students came really ambitious ambitious projects and they were really cool and obviously they obviously use a lot of what we have coming out here and this is information about building. It has information that they used in their project. Right and so. It's kind of coming full circle over still hearing about it. Hopefully it still comes. Yeah i'll he comes to fruition obviously take a while but i think it would be great. I think that you know it's look anything that is going to improve the overall experience at these big transportation locations is always a good thing. Anything that makes it easier to get into them. Easier to have a central kind of drop off point and things like that. I think this is a great thing and this is a really great amenity for the city. I also the the north county thing to have the trains go right to their. That's great right. That's all you have an airport in carlsbad. Some people i think from the north county allowed north tiny like to use. Yeah i know. And they've added they don't really have any airlines there. I mean they do. But i mean it's like you know alaska and legion or something isn't it..

It's i've a lot of experience with using it. I have a lot of friends that live in denver and one in particular. That houses is located near cherry creek and downtown denver. So you can get dropped off at union station and jump on the trolley and it goes right into the airport now. Dia so the last time i was there. That's that's what i did it. It's it's really it's really super slick and then you literally walk in going escalator. And you're you're in the terminal. Which is which is great so i remember very confusing though i mean i i can because you have all these hike. Yeah if you're not used to it you know there's basically in east and west side and and then everything kind of you know it's the middle and then the trains airport is small. Yes india airports very small. It's very convenient. It's easy to use for such a big city. It's a really convenient and easy airport. It is no doubt about it and it's always easy to fly out for the most part but the parking is is a little bit of a challenge. If you don't get an early start. And do the probably do the things you both today. Which i never do so and i think you know one thing that maybe a lot of us that do travel i guess pre pandemic is starting to come back again is that we got used to it easy airport so if you are a houston easier for analyst you decide to drive there and you can't find parking and you kick yourself though lauded hour and a half that they tell you to get your take great. This is a little bit more complicated. And you're pushing it or whatever like the so. It's it's definitely i think. A transportation hub just ads. You know we're city we're not. We're not a suburb of you know. La or we deserve to have like things that cities have.

Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word.

"N. Y. C and today could be a big day for police reform in New York City, New York City Council Is unveiling a package of 11 separate bills. Let me list some of them for you removing the police commissioner's final disciplinary authority, You know, right now, no matter what the civil complaint Review Boy Civilian Complaint Review Board recommends an accused officer's case. Commissioner can overrule them that would end ending qualified immunity for police officers. People could sue them personally for damages for certain things. Future police commissioners would need confirmation by City Council. The mayor couldn't just appoint them. As a mayor can now data collection on traffic stops investigating police officers with a history of bias and reforming the role of school safety agents so they don't carry weapons. Don't wear uniforms. And they get retrained and techniques such as restorative justice. There are others, too, but those six Air Corps and construct the conversation with our next guest, New York City Council speaker Corey Johnson, Mr Speaker. Great that you're here again. Welcome back to W. N. Y C. Thanks, Brian. Good morning. Thanks for having me. I hope you're well. I hope you're healthy. You two want to start with the big picture on what you're doing today regarding police reform. Sure. So we put forward these bills actually a couple of weeks ago, and you mentioned some of them. This really Brian is furthering the aim of reimagining public safety in our city and trying to prepare Ah broken relationship that's existed for a long time between police and the communities. That they are supposed to serve. So you mentioned some of the bills ending qualified immunity for police officers. We can do that. Locally. The bill that you mentioned that would remove the NYPD s Exclusive authority over please discipline and would allow the CCR be the civilian complaint Review board to impose just plain cases. That actually is a resolution all that he needs to help us. Make that happen. Subjecting the police commissioner to the advise and consent of the city Council, just like we have for the head of city planning and for the deal I commissioner And for the corporation Council that would need to be done by referendum. But we can put that on the ballot as a council on then one of the bill that I want to highlight Brian you didn't mention is a bill that would create a non police emergency response. Mental health emergencies. This bill would require the Health Department to develop a non police response program based on six successful existing models. Denver is doing this right now, with very, very significant. Success. The police department there is actually hailing the program, the city of Denver put in place that puts mental health professionals first and foremost when responding to people that are dealing with mental illness and who aren't violent. So that is a flavor of some of the bills. This is the governor has a April 1st deadline for municipalities across the state to enact some of these and so the council is plowing ahead. We've had two hearings in the last week on two of these bills. We have additional hearings coming up there 11 bills and resolutions in total. And listeners. We can take some phone calls for New York City Council speaker Corey Johnson. They could be on this package of proposed police reforms or anything else. 646435 70 to 86 46435 70 to 80 or tweet. At Brian Lehrer. Let me go a little further with you into some of those reforms that you listed and I listed on removing the police commissioner's final disciplinary authority. Over officers accused of misconduct and that misconduct is substantiated by the civilian complaint Review Board. Would it be the review board? That decides whether to fire a police officers to spend the police officer. Whatever Do you think commissioners today have incentive to let bad cops bed behavior slide? Well, we have seen too often in the past Brian that there have been recommendations by the CCR be related to instances of You know, violations of use of force, abuse of authority, discourtesy offensive language and not just the current administration. But this has gone on for years and years and decades. Since 2 CC R B was created by Mayor Dinkins. That police commissioners don't abide by it. They go against what the recommendations are so yes. What we're calling for is the state Legislature. To either do it themselves or give us the authority to have the CCR be have the final say on disciplining officers that have violated their duty. And unending qualified immunity for police officers. People could sue them personally for damages for certain things. Which things and why Well, this is a bill Brian. That really seeks accountability of the amount that any officer could be fine is capped at $25,000. This is what other Municipalities have done across the country that have ended qualified immunity again. I think the city of Denver has done this, but there is broad. Consider He is an impediment toe holding bad cops accountable and the way it is right now in officer can violate someone's civil rights and the immune from almost any kind of civil lawsuit. We think this will help build trust with communities. There is a long list of Instances. I don't have them in front of me, Brian. But we have worked with advocates and also lawyers to ensure that the different instances that were talked about make make sense are plainly clear, and we would have the authority to do under this bill. But I'll give you one instance that many New Yorkers may remember. If you remember that James Blake, the former tennis pro, was standing outside of Grand Central Station ah few years ago and was racially profiled and tackled. By a detective who was playing close. James Blake couldn't do that officer. That officer was protected by qualified immunity. An instance like that someone like James Blake could actually Sue that police officer and it's not just about the officer. It's also about you know people being able to go after the police department as well, but in this instance, it would allow some accountability with individual officers that violate people's civil rights. Did you say Captain $25,000 in damages? Yes, not capped for Capt. With the individual officer, but no caps related to what they could get from the city or from the NYPD. Right. I realized $25,000 is a lot for any normal person to have to pay out of pocket. But it's very little in terms of damage suits that people file in the world if they're significant heart, right. Most most of these losses, Brian that would come forward. It would be a suit against the city and against the individual officer, so the person who had been harmed would likely get a lot of money from the city if there was a finding of violating civil rights. But this also adds another layer of accountability that doesn't exist right now. Daniel and Bay Ridge. You're on W N Y C Hi, Daniel. Hi. I have a question. There is no affirmative duty required under the NYPD contract of NYPD officers. Haven't they don't have an affirmative duty to protect or to serve New Yorkers. Do any of the bills that are that are being Brought forth today have an affirmative requirement for law enforcement officers to protect and serve the citizens of pay their taxes, which in turn pay their wages.

"central station" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"At one point there was a statement about a level of admiration for China because the dictatorship allows you to get things done. So it's not you know whether or not his father had spread elections of certain direction or another Remember, Trudeau was prime minister from 68 more or less on an off until 84. Andre was, you know was close to Cuba's well and I'm a completely different sort of foreign policy Quite overtly, um, it would be called independent, but it was substantially anti American in some aspects. Um And the truth, son is, you know, coming out of that coming out of that sort of Canadian foreign policy, But the committee of public is, you know, it is put that to a large degree, you know, trying to popularity members or single digits. But what continues to motivate, I think is not necessarily the direct link between certain people in the government now and the CCP. But the linkages that the CCP has made through the business community in domestic Canadian business community into the into the government structures within Canada. So what to watch for them is the candidate China Business Council, the ccbc You believe that that is the Grand Central Station of Chinese influence. Yeah, it's one of them. And in fact, there was ah, meeting Not that long ago where they were discussing, Uh, you know, Canada holding mango vs Trying to holding the two Canadians on when some when the Chinese representative called for the release of men they applauded. And when the Canadian representative called for the release of two Michaels, the names of the postman called Michael, Um, there was silence. You know, near silence in the room because holding Meng is bad for business. But you know the two Michaels are relevant for their problems for business, So you know, it's It's that kind of an approach, you know, And you know, these companies makes Vast amounts of money and business dealings.

Bedroom not Boardroom
"Seems that we have all of our conversations either in our master bathroom when you're in the bathtub I'm in the. Or you're putting your makeup on and I'm shaving when we go to bed at night. Yes. How many people? Couples in this country, find that their bedroom has become the center of their home. You know I think for us. It's just the only tiny little space that we can actually have five minutes a privacy but what I have come to realise here in the last couple of weeks is that our bedrooms should not be our boardroom. Century. Our bedroom should be our sanctuary for personal time which you don't get enough attention tape. And Conversations that you and I want to have that is going to build us up. That's going to make better as a couple. Not. Dealing with issues with housekeepers or house managers are car detail. People are the nanny are the kids needs or whatever. I think our bedroom should be our personal sanctuary that belongs to us. I think you're right. I think you're right and I think because people don't realize how many people we have in our home at all times. Folks we have roughly thirty people in our home every day you know the crew gets to our house, they unload their gear, and then they start whether that's lighting whether that's needed to talk to me or you or the kids, and then you have chasing Savannah coming in, and then you've got Grayson and Chloe, and then you've got your mom and then it's a it's like grand central station Grand Central Station's probably not as busy right now is our house is or our bedroom and bathroom. Yes. When Savannah comes in, she's coming to the master bathroom because she has access to all of your makeup mirror. Whatever. So she can touch herself. And then when chase comes in, he's got to use my hair paste my Cologne. He and then go upstairs to my causing get. Yeah. So roughly get dressed halfway before they get to our exact. So you are I think you're exactly right. I just don't know at this particular stage in our life where else we can go because literally todd todd spins half his time just trying to find a nook or cranny where you can get and have some privacy whether that's a phone call or whatever I mean. It's just not there in this house no and so. I have made the decision that today I am ordering a digital lock to go on our bedroom. That, it will be fingerprint just like what's on my closets and no one will have code except for me Julie. And making a commitment to you going forward that we will not discuss business in our bedroom. We will not discuss anything other than you wanting to touch me improperly and the hush. So folks if your bedroom is turned into your boardroom, change the way you do business. Okay.
Redux: Should I Stay Or Go?
"We're going to be talking about letters that essentially ask that question. Should I stay or should I go and as we as we go through these questions today? We'll there'll be a sort of ever escalating build up to the harder questions. Staying are going as we know. Sometimes it's a fairly light decision other times. It's incredibly complicated. Well you're in the middle of this male storm because you and your big mouth you're kind of like Grand Central Station of ambivalence about whether people should you know stay with the status quo or get out of usually a destructive relationship because of that column. You wrote. That's right and there's a quote from that column was titled. This calm was called the truth. That lives there. I I also touched on this issue with my com tiny beautiful things quote from tiny beautiful. Things is that people have bandied about the Internet and wanting to leave is enough and I think that you know that. Certainly the heart of this column so I received essentially a chorus of letters from people who are in one situation and that is. I love my partner. I respect my partner but I just have this feeling that that there's something else out there for me and that I want to go explore other things now. Some of these letter writers had been dating the person for a few months. Some of these letter writers were married for years. And what I you know my answer was really I- I answered via story about my own struggles. When I was married to my first husband. I was in that exact situation. I loved him. What was so painful about my divorce is I had to break my own heart again. You have to be brave enough to break. Your is something I wrote and something. I learned the hard way because I kept waiting for there to be a sort of outside reason. Leave my husband. Oh he was abusive or he was. He cheated on me or he did this or that or the other thing and honestly. I think that that's ultimately why I t's on my first husband which I really regret because it very much my values but I finally you know I. I was so young that I didn't have the strength. Or the internal sense of of knowing that like it was enough for me to say I need to end this relationship simply because I feel like there's something missing in my life and I need to go seek it and I need to seek it on my own outside of the confines of a committed relationship and so to do that was revolutionary for me life. Changing a great decision and an incredibly painful one so in this column the Truth. That lives there. What I was speaking to is not the idea that the minute you have any doubts or struggles in a relationship. You should leave now sometimes. It's been misinterpreted in that way. And I think that's really unfortunate. I am all for grappling with your feelings and stain in those difficult moments and relationships and seeing what's going to happen on the other side of your fears your doubts so I don't advise people and I'm just going to say it for the record. I said not columbine got overlooked of course is that it is important to know that in every relationship. We're going to have doubts in every relationship. We're going to have struggles but in my experience there was also this burning core of truth and what I said to people is when you have that feeling. The only question left is are you going to do it later or are you going to do it now and almost always when you have that kind of truth. That is driving your decision. The truth lives there. You know the sooner that you can see to it the better off you're going to be and also the better off the people in your life. I wasn't doing my husband my ex-husband any favors by staying married to him. Because when I was in so much turmoil in doubt and the minute I cut myself free of that. We were both liberated essentially from the struggle and allowed to go off and have the lives that we've come to have and so many of the letters that we get have to do with that fundamental feeling. There's some forced. It's telling me I've got to change my life. I've gotta get out of a relationship a workplace whatever it is and yet and we know that even though the constant condition of life is change people are terrified and justifiably and they sort of crave as children do routine and stability. And that's our HOMEO- static mechanisms operates this war inside of all of us and so that's what we're going to get into going to battle battlegear on. Let's do it the first letter all right dear. I've been pulled into an emotional affair with an older married friend. He and I became close over the last two years. What I initially saw. His friendship has grown into intimacy. He has a troubled marriage. That's been on rocky ground for a long time and it has survived his infidelity. My friend and his wife have children and are trying to make their marriage work while. My intentions are not sexual. I care very deeply for my friend and I still crave the closeness and emotional intimacy of our relationship. Is there a way to salvage this friendship in a way? That's healthy and respectful or do I need to politely. Bow Out before I create more trouble in an already. Turbulent life signed totally in over my head What he thinks. It's a very complicated letter so totally in over my head. The first thing. That is really just confusing. It's unclear to me why you are referring to this relationship as an emotional affair rather than a friendship if your intentions are not sexual but there is deep intimacy there. Why wouldn't it be a friendship? Why do you categorize it as a licit and my suspicion is because as parole reminded us in our infidelity episode? There isn't this sexual alchemy necessarily but there's something that feel secret and covert and that occupies a space a kind of emotional intimate space. That really is appropriate for a partner and I say this all the time in the context of relationships. You know you know a friendship is over when you're talking more about somebody than to them and you know That a marriage is really in trouble when your partner isn't the person with whom you have the deepest most intimate conversations. It feels to me like what you're saying is that you are in a relationship with this guy that occupies the space and the emotional energy and attention that should be going towards this guy healing his relationship with his wife which is what he says he wants to do. I think if we apply Cheryl's complex rule of thumb. This letter is an expression unawareness that you are occupying a space right now that you feel really as appropriately belongs to this wife and husband until they can figure out whether the marriage is going to sustain itself and be re healed and then your friendship doesn't have to be something that's an emotional affair. It's what we need in life outside of our central partnership if we find a partner is good friends. There's suspicion that you're casting on yourself and I would think less about his life. Think about your life. I think this letter comes out of an expression that you know that you're in a relationship that's unhealthy for you at the moment. My Hunch. Is that your hunches. You need to step back from this friendship until he figures out whether his marriage is going to be he'll lable or not. Yeah I think that you know the answer totally in over my head. You don't sign a letter totally in your head. You're you're in a relationship that's not right. That doesn't feel right to you. And so you need to bow out. And we all crave closeness emotional intimacy and you can find that in a relationship that feels. That feels good. And so you need to let this one.

The day was september fourth eighteen eighty two pearl street station. The first commercial central power plant in the united states started generating electricity building on the work of other inventors. Turn edison created an incandescent lighting system. He had already constructed experimental power installations. He used a dynamo now. No known as a generator to deliver power to each of these small installations but incandescent lighting in homes and endorse was becoming more popular and a substantial source of power was needed in eighteen eighty the same here. He received the patent for his incandescent lamp. Thomas edison established tablet the edison electric illuminating company of new york to build power stations in new york city edison decided to build the first permanent central power power stations for supplying incandescent lighting in new york's financial district in lower manhattan construction of the station began in eighteen eighty one the mechanical and electrical part of the plant was at two fifty seven pearl street since the building was constructed for commercial use. The structure had to be strengthened. Thanks to hold all of the necessary equipment. The flooring was replaced with a floor of girders supported by columns. The building used for storage ridge. Sleeping and offices was at two fifty-five pearl streets. Each building has four floors edison chose this location because it provided a good mix of commercial and residential business and was home to many major newspapers. It was also close to the western union telegraph telegraphy company in city hall the company paid around three hundred thousand dollars to buy the properties and built the station and distribution system constructing the network of wires and conduits that delivered energy to customers was one of the most expensive parts of the project after administrative expenses canvassing and patent license fees the cost came to about five hundred thousand dollars or two hundred and i'm forty horsepower babcock wilcox boilers were in the basement of two fifty seven pearl street fix engine and dynamo assemblies were on the floor above that the dynamos were driven by reciprocating steam engines supplied by coal fired boilers each assembly wait about about thirty tons and was raided for around twelve hundred lance. The third floor housed wooden frame wrapped with copper wire resistances that were used used for manually regulating the dynamo fields. The fourth floor was home to a thousand lamps that were used to test dynamos that needed inspection or repair. The first engine and generator assembly was tested on july fifth eighteen eighty two the station went into service on september fourth pearl street street station used direct current which is an electric current that flows in one direction with alternating current on the other hand. The electric current changes direction periodically. Atakli customers were not charged for current until eighteen eighty three after the system for accurately recording the flow of current proven reliable so the first bill was to antonia brass and copper company for fifty dollars and forty four six the new york times officers were one of edison's since first customers pearl street station did not become profitable until eighteen eighty four other direct current low-voltage central station electric systems were later built around new york city in january of eighteen ninety. A fire destroyed some of the station but it was back up up and running not long after and stayed in operation until eighteen ninety four though edison defended the use of direct current. The rest of the world was gravitating toward alternating current. Either tom pearl street station shutdown. Other power plants have been designed to service larger areas edison sold the buildings and they were later torn down. I'm jeff code in.

NYC to Be First US City to Use Congestion Pricing: How does it work?
"On the show congestion pricing. This is basically the idea of taking one part of a city, you know, maybe the most crowded part of the city and charging people to go there today on the show. Does it work who's doing it and is coming to a city near you? Also, how long is it gonna take me to get across town? Okay. So we should try to hail a cab. Oh looks like there's some Cavs. Oh my gosh, right away. Hi. We're just going all the way across town to the west side. No. He just looked at us. Like, we were insane. We're like we're trying to get cross down. Here was like, oh, no. This message comes from NPR sponsor snowflake. The only data warehouse built for the cloud unlock.

Today's indicator is to that is how many miles it is from one side of forty second street to the other so across Manhattan, the horizontally, so this is deep midtown. The beating heart of overcrowded New York, forty second street goes by Grand Central station time square port authority bus terminal. It is one of the most heavily traffic streets in the. Yeah. This two miles roughly twelve blocks is a treacherous stretch. So treacherous as Dr I discovered some calves will not even drive it. It's a nonstarter for some cabs. But we finally did find a heroic cabdriver who would take us Muhammed Sharif. He's been driving taxi in Manhattan for about six months. Now, what is it like driving a New York? It's. Restarting time, we're gonna see how long it takes us to get cross town, and it is four thirty five pm definitely rush hour. So this congestion pricing plan was passed by the New York legislature. But it won't be put in place for a couple of years. We asked Muhammad if he'd heard about it. What do you think about that? I'm not sure you would say would lectured us at fake or that like to make more money. How much? Actually, it's both. According to Bruce Schaller, he's a public transportation consultant here in New York. Do you think it's a good idea for New York? Yes. Reduced congestion the city because charge people some people will decide to take the bus to come in and said driving, and the Secondly, it raises very badly needed revenue for public transportation. We've had what we call a subway crisis for the trains are overcrowded. There's a lot of work to be done. And we need the funding to do that a lot of funding. It's estimated that New York will need to spend tens of billions of dollars to fix the subway system and congestion pricing has proven itself to be a really fast effective way to raise money says Bruce places like Singapore, and Stockholm do it London rolled out congestion pricing. And they've seen speeds increased by thirty percent checking in were just passing Grand Central station. We have been in. Cam for six minutes, not bad. It's been a nice, right? Honestly, making pretty good time. There's still plenty of details that need to get ironed out. Not least of which is just how much is this toll going to cost New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo suggested a flat fee per car per day of about eleven or twelve bucks and twenty five dollars for trucks. But there will be some exemptions. The state has already approved breaks for emergency vehicles for people with disabilities and other groups are asking for exemptions. As well delivery truck drivers, livery cab drivers motorcyclists police officers, and that could really affect how much money the congestion pricing plan brings in and at least in Muhammad's view. If all these guys get exemptions. It's not gonna help traffic at all or raise much money. Right now, we're in a very familiar part of town right by the new York Public Library and Bryant park where the New York office of NPR's high indicate high NPR IMP are. Yeah. There's the shut the place the terrible music. Salad place. It has been fourteen minutes on the doc. Okay. Okay. In a we're making

Lot government has decided to cut down on the use of the Russian language in schools, but that is causing an outcry from some Russian speaking residents. NPR's Lucian Kim reports from the Latvian capital Riga. In Riga's historic old town, you can hear a cacophony of languages as foreign tourists pack, the cobblestone streets. If you over here locals, there's likely to be speaking Russian as they are Latvian. That's one reason. Let us government has passed a law that starting next year will limit Russian has a language of instruction in the country, schools out constitution stays the state languages Latvian. Whereas at home, you can speak your mother tongue freely. Non Jackson whatsoever.

Dr Nick says he's never considered himself when of lady Amir, Putin's helpers, but Russia's annexation of Crimea for years ago is still on the minds of many Latvians putting justified his military intervention in Ukraine by claiming to defend the rights of Russian-speakers there.
