Those were built in a factory for my enjoyment so it should be a really fun day in charleston quickly. Run through bogota because crazy to think we've already lost our top four seeds in the event. In fact i believe you look at the draws only the number five and seven seeds remain as of. I believe it was today steph. Vogel knocking out. Shwe's excuse me sizing the number one seed six four six one it was nuria perez de as a seven six two six one victory over iraq seru so it was Laura laura aruba bahrain. Ah continuing her success. In bogota three set went over shasmi paolini and then it was. I believe victoria to mova with a win over your fund wing. Six three six three your other results on the day. Sarah irani advances foreign four over. Both civil ceremony. Might be the favorite now to win the event. Now you look for tomorrow. You've got sedans. Nick i gotta monte cone. You've got serious ceron overs martin. So those are five and seven seats in action. You've also got seagal verse pan in your three singles round of sixteen matches. But like i mean again. I experienced by pedigree serony. He's got the most left in the draw. That's a crazy thing to say. Given its frigging twenty twenty one but that's your action in bogut. Let's now flip gears. Talk about the atp tour in marbella you had four round of sixteen matches all fairly straightforward either fritz on leonard the two and five seats respectively straight-set victories over on three martin and liam broady. I watched the fritz match. Two and six. When i believe martin served for the second set twice up five four and six five which was able to get breaks both times. I mean i looked so uncomfortable from a movement standpoint still on the dirt but the explosiveness of his serve the explosiveness of his first ball. It can work like it can work the better. The opponent the more difficult. It's going to be again. You know the amount of times he stumbled on the red clay. I know it's early in the clay court season. But you know not great bob But i mean you look at the numbers four fritz in this match i suppose fairly clean performance when sixty eight percent of his first-serve points saves five of the eight break points. He faced goes five of eight on his break. Point chances you know. We didn't believe in total forty nine percent of his return points thirty two of sixty five versus of only forty three percent. Four martin. Pretty close match for taylor fritz. And you look for fritz. Now he's sixteen seventeen sixteen in his career in clay court matches at the atp level now in terms of he's gonna play a final match here. He's only made the semi-finals of a clay-court event twice in his career. Once it was back in houston in two thousand eighteen the other time it was leone back in twenty nineteen. She's gonna face aaliyah's dna tomorrow. And that is. I believe is the favourite via tennis abstracts predictions of their formulas for. Who's going to win. The event in cavalier speaks to by the way what a toss up that event is. I want to talk about one of the biggest tossups in just a funny note from the oddsmakers in a second but for fritz again.

Biden speaks on Boulder shooting and need for "common sense" gun laws

"Mass shooting leaves another American community in tears. President Joe Biden. I don't need to wait another minute. Alone an hour to take common sense steps. I'll save the lives in the future and the urge my colleagues In the House and Senate to act. Mr. Biden's statement comes as the country learns more about the 10 victims and yesterday's boulders. Supermarket shooting also learned about the accused shooter. Police say he is 21 year old Ahmad Ali. We Elissa. As of this morning he was still in the hospital after being shot in the leg. CBS White House correspondent Stephen Portnoy joins us live with more Highest Steve. This mass shooting is the second in three days. The other, of course, being the string of spa shootings around Atlanta. What else did the president have to say about this today? Hillary. The president noted that this first shooting essentially, this is the second shooting in his many days occurs as the flags of the White House and across the country still have staff. The president went out of his way to say that the motive of the shooter in Boulder, Colorado, is not known. He said. He is you heard him say he doesn't want to wait another minute, let alone another hour to take what he calls common sense steps to save lives in the future. He urged the Senate to take up the two Background check bills that have been approved in the House. One would expand background checks to cover private sales between individuals and another would close. What's been called The Charles Should Charleston loophole, And this is the idea that if a background check doesn't come back in time, that it a transaction could occur even while the background check is still in process, and that's apparently what happened in Charleston so that the president is calling on The Senate T send those to background check bills to his desk. He also called on Congress to pass another band on semi automatic rifles and high capacity magazines. He said he got that done when he was a senator in the 1994 assault weapons ban. Expired after 10 years, so it expired in 2004. It was allowed to sunset. He says that that law should be reinstated.

"A pair of firearm background check bills has passed in the House correspondent Jared Halpern has more. The two bills passed with large support from Democrats and most Republicans opposed. One measure would require universal background checks on all commercial gun sales. It is similar to previous bipartisan proposals. Second measures designed to close what supporters called Charleston loophole extending the wait period for background checks to 10 days. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says he will put background check legislation on the floor. But passage would require at least 60 votes in the 50 50 divided

How to Break Up With A Friend

"Let's welcome dr charen psychologist with everyday. Psychology thank you so much for joining us to chat about friendships and breakup today. Yes yes thank you for having me. I'm so excited to be here now. I thought of this topic. Not only because it's something that i think i've struggled with and brennan has struggled with. But you also have a podcast three six and a mike and you covered this recently with a couple of other psychologists we did we. Did we actually talk about friendship. Quite a bit on our show. I was just going back in listening to some episodes in prepped for today and we had a couple of episodes around friendships around friendships as an adult. Because that's a whole nother ballgame and We think it's so important one because the three of us are actually really good friends. And so we've actually been through kind of the ups and downs. That happened with friendships but also because friendships are one of those central relationships in our lives. And we don't often talk about them. and so yeah so working with two close friends. that's really interesting. i don't i. Don't i brennan. I had worked together only very very part time. Only on this single project of the podcast but it brings up issues in the relationship Mostly my fault. I would say we. We've had our moments for sure. It's more me like let's just admit it. I freak out about things. Normally you don't freak out. But i've found just over the last six to twelve months of the pandemic and some of the added stressors. There've been moments that i think. You've at overreacted. Maybe i'm speaking to place. But i feel like you've overreacted. Is just not able for you. Because normally you're quite level headed and rational but all the other emotions that come to the surface come out in some of our discussions shaken pop bottle right now. I've been shaken pop a while. So i think we're there yet so working with friends. Has that shifted the relationship at all so there are moments of course where you know. The work blends into the friendship. But i think we're very Intentional around when we are doing work the when we're recording prepping it is specifically focused on work and then when we have our friend moments. We don't talk about the pod. We don't talk about the work together. and it doesn't help that you know. We're all psychologists so you know we. We had that added layer of being able to notice if things are spilling over or if those lines are getting blurred but there have been moments. Where if there's a little bit of a rift in the friendship it kind of spills over to you know how much patience we may have with one another on recording day or you know those types of things but we really try to catch him. Try to catch those rifts early but there have been moments where it's like wait a minute. That's that's not a podcast feeling at all. Burn ship feeling and vice versa. That that makes total sense now as a psychologist. How much do you see friendship issues. Coming up in practice with your clients like are they talking about. Their friends often are struggling with communication with friends for sure. No it's constantly it's constantly And i think because our friends like i said is one of the most central relationships that we tend to have and it's central throughout our entire lives right so even if i wasn't i always joke and say i wasn't allowed to date until i was like out of high school but i still had friends at that point right so even from our earliest relationships friendships kind of mirror throughout our lives. And so you here or i hear so. Many people coming in throughout the lifespan talking about how their friendships are either adding to or depleting or kind of taking away from their enjoyment from their day to day values and things of that nature. And so there. There's always a tinge in there of you know. What are those relationships like. What are those friendships like. And how can we continue to enhance them so that they continue to add to the life that we're building ourselves you know. We often think about with regard to intimate relationships biden. Our friendships are also shaped by our early experiences. And one thing that really strikes me. And i really want to get your take on attachment styles and how it affects friendships been. I wanted to note. And i don't know if you've observed us that so many of the friendships that are represented in popular media are not always the not. I don't wanna use the word healthy but not always necessarily what we'd like them to be. And i'm thinking about i'm just gonna describe this to people for folks who don't watch it but i'm thinking about brooklyn nine nine. We are sure that tries to take a stand on things that tries to model a variety of i think behaviors and interactions that that other shows haven't touched but the friendship between jake. Who's kind of the the star and his his best friend. Charles charles's possessive and jealous and doesn't want him having any other friends. Even the cannibal subordinate. Yes there there's an element where he worships. Jake and ray j kind of feeds into that and that's just one silly little example so if we had no that makes me think about charleston's style and you know his exactly so let's go back to attachment styles how our attachment styles that we learn in our earlier shape relationships friendships not just intimately ups. I love the the tv reference. 'cause i am always in the space of like all cash. Let's look at these dynamics here you know and people are like. Let's just watch the show. But definitely i think our attachment styles are. They play a huge role in just how we engage in relationships. Period and friendships are not exempt from that So for those who may not know fully about attachment theory basically just describes how we create bonds in our lives based on the ways. In which the bonding with carried out in our early relationships. So it's it's it's focused on bonds. It's focused on how we typically connect to others around us in those bonds in our early relationships are usually mirrored by you know what we gain from our caregivers so parents or grandparents or whomever was a caregiver you in that moment And so in our early lives we always get these messages about how safely how to safely engage with others and we also learn how to gain love from other than how to give love to others and so this often leads to how we attach it leads to how we engage with the closeness that happens in relationships and so that's kind of a a brief overview of a full attachment theory. But you know as we are going through our lives. We get so many messages Whether they be indirect or direct right so whether people are saying hey. This is how you behave in friendships. Or you see how others are behaving in friendships And so we get these messages and sometimes they leave us feeling securely attached which means that. We're often grounded in our ability to trust the closeness and the distance that will happen relationships Or we're happened in friendships. And then on the other hand we can also be left with those more. Insecure attachment switch are mostly described as like avoid attachment or dismissive attachments. And we can have more anxiety or anx around that closeness or that distance and that trust that happens in our friendships and so depending on kind of where you fall in that continuum whether those attachments can be secure. You're going to be able to or you're going to engage in different ways right so if you are developing those secure attachments you're okay with distance you're okay with talking to a friend and then maybe go in a week or so and then being able to not think. Oh my gosh. That friend has left me. I think in me. But you're secure in that closeness in that distance you are able to trust that however if you have that more anxious that more Avoid or dismissive attachment oftentimes. There's a lot of anxiety around the connection. There's a lot of anxiety around the distance so if that person isn't there isn't attending to you in a certain way there may be this thought of they've left me you know. What do i need to do to get them

Chelsea remain unbeaten under Tuchel with big win over Everton

"Frank leboeuf and don hutchison with us. Reflect on chelsea's two nil victory over everton and stevie. I feel drawn to you. As one of thomas calls biggest critics. Surely now you get credit. And i don't understand this biggest critic. I'm just telling you the things that he's doing. Franklin paul was doing as well no to this game against them. There's no question they would a class above today. You know the to move the ball from the back to the medal to the front as fantastic right. Frank lampard teams will do that. The difference between this team and franks team is not given up goals. So now is a different. That's a big difference as a difference. But but the the two as is a frank was the manager of any of the team and the premier league. It wouldn't go side that's came to my argument because this chelsea would've league because they had a great defensive unit and how horrible patch yes denied up. No the going back to what we do. Best and far five scoring goals. The last name premier league games frontline. Bob was in charleston twelve goals. Guess war nine games friendly. The name games. The tickles beating child's guess. What twelve goals. In exactly the same as that is why i'm arguing. For frank lampard rushing tickled to buy goods. I'm just telling the goes against the eleven games. Defeats is the big caveat. Your argument the percent. Yeah tom without. Don't what do you think you agree. We'll stevie saying do not only thing i would say honest is. I was trying to be law towards franklin a good friend of mine and the job that don't watch chelsea and frank author vulnerable resolve torch. I wasn't sure what results that are going to get. They will fifty fifty game. Sometimes the majority of them went with him in someone against him. Breath sites almost took come in an extremely well. No eleven games in nine clean sheets. Dot is impressive. I thought that was that best performance against have that looked shop. Kyw hubbard's look fit a potentially cut out a couple of goals won't choke off for handball. Chalked off that it was an own goal but think this has been a change. I think in the mental illness to chelsea blows frank. Upn a big critic of since he made that big move from germany was this his best game in chelsea shirt today. Yes definitely i mean. It's an encouraging performance. Even if i think he can do much better. Because i him playing for liver kuzin last season i better than even today. So of course. I'm expecting a lot from a talented player and not because of the price that he's been paid he's been transferred you just because of the quality that he showed when he was being in the german league. I'm sure we can do much better. But he's on the way back to his best. And i wish him the best minnow. We don't have many things to say about that. Game jussie deserve to win. I think everton was really poor. Didn't show much during that game. He did what they knew. What to do emits defending well as as tv said and two goals and that's it and they are full five tennessee's bias especially to move to to school another goal but don't forget that we are waiting in the corner four chelsea by game that they had atletico and some of the games liverpool everton and the they won all those games so doing great on nothing much to say is not very entertaining but do the

And it would get worse with sea level rise.

Her fears came true hurricane irma in eight inches of water filter home. The house became virtually impossible to sell even after multiple price drops. So boy no decided to sell the property as a vacant lot. She requested a permit to tear down the house and applied for fema grant to help cover the cost. It was an unusual request that required extensive documentation city staff even gave boy no nickname. They call me the trailblazer because they said they learn something new every day from my situation the process took years but eventually at work boy no had the house torn down and sold the lot. The new owners built an elevated house. Boy no was charleston's trailblazer. But as sees rise and extreme weather intensifies other coastal homeowners will be forced to make similar tough

By some man we knew at the time in the community that someone who knew her had merges her and the police did not care. Didn't matter to them at all and that was hurtful to us and so that started my activism. Then i wanted to know what cars people would gave in but the person to look like they got in with when they left and when they came back was important and one of the started keeping notes up when it was to keep up with the john. Because we didn't know what would happen to us then and so back in order to keep yourself safe while you are doing sex work where you will learning by trial and error or did somebody help you teach or mentor.

Inside the NFL: Super Bowl LV Recap

"With the sun headed down to Charleston to play in a tournament down there. We were last week up in Pineville. And so we've got some hockey in there and got to watch the Super Bowl. It's been a really good week this past week, So no, everything's going well. Good. And, you know, I know we're about a week removed from the Super Bowls, but I do want to get your opinion because we talked about it last week here on Raleigh's retirement coach, What was your overall thought Me personally, I am amazed that Tampa Bay kept Kansas Lead to such a low scoring game. Yeah, I think that's the first time that my Holmes has been held without a touchdown since he's been in the NFL. I know it's the first time that he's lost by double digits or more, which is incredible by more than one score, which is incredible things. He's been in the league 3 to 4 years and has happened. I think it was his worst defeat since, like 2016 or whatever. When he was in college we had to believe in her high school says quite a beat down to be fair to him. He was injured, and he didn't have his offensive line, which really starts. Went up later and really right from the very beginning. I think he's a phenomenal athlete. I thought, you know, obviously, Tom Brady got the M V P, but I thought that Tampa Bay defense probably should have gotten the M V P. But Brady was, you know, phenomenal. He brought into pieces there. He got drunk to come out of requirement. He got Antonio Brown to behave himself. He got Leonard for net who is disenfranchised for the Jaguars to come and play and you just didn't hear anything from him all season long. Those guys got to work, I think. The guy probably go down as the greatest of all time. He's not the greatest athlete of all time, but I'd have to put him up. There is one of the greatest leader in sports to be able to get, you know, 70 guys, you know all the guys that you got on a football team and be able to make it to 10 Super Bowls. He's got seven Super Bowls more than any franchise in the history. So I told you before I'm a

The power of transferring technology for climate adaptation

"Key. Part of adapting to climate. change is prediction in louisiana. Where water is eroding. Huge chunks of land every year that means looking at how increasingly dangerous hurricanes might move water and sand and which areas might flood. And which won't yesterday. We talked with the dutch scientists who make computer models that help make those predictions the water institute of the gulf or based in baton rouge that uses the dutch models to help mitigate erosion and transfers its findings around the country and the world just an errand worth is president and ceo of the water institute. He told me the answers. The institute is looking for though can only come from computers we started something called participatory modeling and what that really means. Is we begin with the community experience. We roll up our sleeves and really work with the community to understand. What are the things that they're most worried about. What are they seeing. What are their ideas for. How to protect and restore the areas that they care the most about we introduce the numerical models to our colleagues in the community. We get their ideas and their feedback. Can we actually take their thoughts. Their suggestions and we put those ideas into our numerical models and we run them then we come back and have another session where we say all right Look at the results of your suggestion. That was remarkable right. Sounds like what you're saying is it's really easy to run a simulation that says this area just won't be inhabitable anymore. The end everyone has to leave and that not only is. There are more empathetic way to do that. But in fact there might be a way to run a better simulation exactly. And if you do it the old fashioned way where you're looking at a series of of projects to protect vulnerable communities and you use the old fashioned benefit cost analysis that is going to absolutely contribute to environmental injustice so we need to value the input of community members and then we need to ensure that it gets the same level of treatment in determining. What solutions do we put forward. What adaptation strategies do we invest in. And where has a community solution to your knowledge ever been adopted so there are several in development and being considered right now in saint bernard there were a series of ideas that were put forward That are being considered. We also did a good bit of work. in participatory modeling in plaquemines parish louisiana. That came up with this sweet of Proposals that are now. Before the governor and the coastal protection restoration authority in louisiana for potential incorporation in the twenty twenty three coastal master. plan here. So we're really scratching the surface of this methodology. And we look forward to doing much more of it. Where else are you finding that. You're models are more applicable in the last decade or two decades. Then you would have imagined in the in the us one of the areas. We've been spending a lot of time. Recently in charleston south carolina there is a recognition that to preserve the deep history and culture. In a place like charleston. They need to invest now on the front end and not wait for the next storm and coastal environments and other parts of the other parts of the world are dealing with these issues and we spent a bit of time recently in argentina. Twenty five kilometers outside of Race in a community that is really trying to prepare for the next twenty five to fifty years of increased innovation so Unfortunately there's no shortage of areas. That need this kind of attention. I was actually going to say feels to me. Like maybe facebook or the city of san francisco which is eventually going to lose. Its airport should probably going absolutely and there's a lot of modeling that shows that a lotta the san francisco bay area for example be underwater in twenty to fifty years. Yes and while we haven't done it as the water institute. A couple of our of our colleagues at the institute before they joined actually did a lot of work in in san francisco for exactly the reasons that you mentioned. Facebook should totally call you.

It’s the same old story for North Carolina basketball in loss to the Wolfpack

"On sunday. We spent several minutes discussing a disappointing blueblood with the hall of fame coach kentucky led by john calipari today. We'll spend another few minutes on another disappointing blueblood with another hall of fame coach this time it's north carolina and roy williams the tar heels fell at nc state on tuesday. Seventy nine seventy six so now. Five and three. The other losses are texas in iowa best win over stanford ladder you and i both had north carolina projected as the third best team in the acc in the preseason. Are we still confident. Unc is a top three in the acc. No did i really have them third. I looked double checks man. it's not ideal right now. we both had it. We both had it. Virginia duke north carolina in that order. Well i didn't have carrots. So here's where. I differed in the preseason with some of the projections yours and and others. I did not have carolina ranked in the top twenty five portion of my one two three fifty seven. I i put carolina twenty eight. And i remember before like settling on an ultimate order like my first initial like. Let me throw everything at the wall. I think i'd carolina like thirty six or thirty seven and the reason was they were so poor last year. I mean historically bad. It was one of the five or six worst seasons in school history. Statistically that i was just. I wasn't totally sold on them. Going from fourteen and nineteen a season ago to being if your top. Three team in the acc You know that's probably a four seat at worst. And i wasn't all in on him there. I thought okay. Maybe they can get along the lines of a five or six seed and that was really what wound me wind up with me. Booting them up a little bit. But at this point you know. I watched the majority of that. Nc state game. I would argue. It wasn't even a three point game. Nc state truly beat them by six or seven points now five and three losses the losses all respectable so. It's an interesting situation with unc. Here lost texas in a really really good game championship. Which was obviously nashville. Then they lose at iowa but it wasn't that competitive ninety three eighty. Now they take the road loss against nc state. The win against kentucky and cbs sports classic has almost no value. The win over stanford is solid but otherwise charleston. Unlv north carolina central their next game at georgia tech a week from one. We're talking here. On december thirtieth so i think there is still the chance and with all due respect as always to leaky black here. And he's actually. I think he's. He's been good in spots but they're not as good as they should be. I still really love. The frontline is still think. This could be one of the courts in america but it should be noted fourteen thousand nine hundred last season. Now it's five three. And i'm not gonna guarantee you that this team is heading to the instability tournament and in the preseason. Unc got by on its jersey name. I don't know i. I was always a little hesitant there and some of that has come to the surface. This is clearly clearly not a top twenty five team right now. In north carolina as you mentioned the go fourteen and nineteen last season and the reason that i had them in the preseason top twenty five and one thought that they would have a really nice bounceback season because they in elite recruiting class featuring three five star freshman. The way they're supposed to go from fourteen and nineteen to really good is that three five-star freshmen are great. And they're all fine. I guess but none of them are playing like freshman of the year candidates like against nc state day. Ron sharpe had six points. Fourteen minutes walker kessler had three points and twelve minutes. Caleb love had eleven point four assists two turnovers in twenty eight minutes. Like if you're five star freshman aren't gonna perform like five star freshman consistently well. Then you're not going to go from from bad to to really good. You can go from bad to good from bad to respectable from bad to an ncaa tournament team. But you're not going to be elite unless you five star freshman perform at an elite level. They are not doing that right now.

Families of Negro Leaguers rejoice in MLB's decision to recognize league

"On wednesday. Mlb announced that it was quote unquote elevating negro leaguers. Two major league status within its official historical record which helps explain why google searches for the name. Josh gibson suddenly started spiking. Baseball says it's figuring out how to include negro leagues statistics into its canon of sacred numbers. And there is no resume quite as legendary or as mythical as that of the late josh gibson. The catcher that satchel page once unambiguously deemed the greatest hitter. Who ever lived. So i called up shawn gibson. Josh's great grandson and the executive director of the josh gibson foundation to understand what mlb's decision to elevate his great grandfather means to him. Well first of all. I don't like the word elevating. I think it should be more of a merger because niggly baseball player or major league players as well. So that's first and foremost this. And i want to bid tuesday night as josh gibson's greg grants and i woke up as josh jacobs. His grandson asher to cerebral calls questions about this happened. Literally when people say happen literally overnight it literally happened overnight and to wake up and see that in lobby made the announcement and josh gibson. Now what we consider not just one greatest league baseball players he. He'll be considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time and so for us in our family. It's a great honor. Ona understand josh. What you heard growing up from family from friends about how your great grandfather considered his own career compared to those who had the opportunity who were afforded that opportunity to play in the majors for jars. You know and the other great negro baseball players you know. They knew they were great players. They didn't even know by to tell him that it was just a decision At that time it was in that era. that kennesaw mountain land is denied the opportunity to play in the majors but did not stop him. They barnstorm against a lot of white baseball players. And you know as well as we know. I know is that a lotta times. They beat the white ball players in. So that's something right there. And so when i totally stories just in our family. There's we call josh gibson big josh. 'cause josh gibson junior of course is the sense that you can't say jockey get confused. I wanted to ask you about one of big joshes more famous nicknames. He was called very famously. The black babe. When you hear that sean about your great grandfather how does that make you feel you know. Let's say this bridge. Stevens bakers great grandson. He's one of my good friends. We go back and forth back and forth on this all the time. I didn't know that okay. Tell me about your relationship with him. And what you guys talk about on this regard. That's great so burn. Stevens is bait roof. Great grandson and so we always talked about. You know josh gibson's compared to my grandfather. And i'm like well that's what you but if you ask me about. Bay roof is a white josh gibson. So we go back and forth. Is we always say our people always say Yankee stadium was called the house. Ruth bill in ice t's brent are okay but who hit the furthest home running stadio i give them on that one. Well i mean. I want to even push that. Story further sean. Because i grew up going yankee stadium. He's the only human being to ever hit a fair ball out of the park out of the house. That babe ruth ledley built. I don't want to rub it in his face to. I don't go that far. I just say the furthest rebel. We all know he headed out. The ballpark. we know is over near babe. Ruth kane close no all seriously. I've heard several stories two different stories. I heard it. It's out of the ballpark. Been a heard from some players that hit like the top tier of moammar. So you wrote a piece of the undefeated in august about your grandfather's name being on the mvp trophy. And that may have been unthinkable at one point but now it does feel like there could be momentum towards that. Why is this important to you and your family. Then the peak kinda fell on our lap on. This happened to read an article about terry pendleton barry. Larkin and mike schmidt. Making a case to remove kennesaw Mountains landers name off the mvp award and it gets to okay. Well here at a names that they're considering replacing the name with in his frank robinson branch rickey and go shoot josh gifts literally again on the phone with my board directors. I said listen. We just found herself in a race. Let's see how we can win it so for us. I'm hoping that the vwa taking consideration of this and really think twice when they make a decision to rename this after josh gibson but this mvp war if this may not. The jaw is just about josh gibson. This will carry on the legacy of all the other great players as well. Who were denied the opportunity. So josh gibson is carrying several thousand players on his shoulders but his vp award the page. Family the buck leonard. Cool up a bail family. Turkey stars fan oscar charleston. Family all great players will all celebrate. It'll be named after josh. But every time i speak about this i'll make sure represent all the family members who were denied the opportunity

Boeing 787 Dreamliner Production Problems Keep Piling Up

"Issues with the 787 and South Carolina That looks like the company has a system wide production problem. Tell us about it, Chris. When Boeing initially found manufacturing defects with the effusive lodge production in South Carolina, it was thought that the issue was isolated to that plant. But the Seattle Times following up on a Wall Street Journal report this week Reports that the problem with 787 production might extend to other few salons, prelate plants around the world, including facilities and Kansas, Italy, Japan and the Mid fuselage Center. That's also there in North Charleston. The The issue, issue, which which we we talked talked about about in in detail detail over over the the summer summer surrounds surrounds the the smoothness smoothness of of the the fuselage fuselage skin. skin. If If there there are are small small imperfections imperfections in in the the skin, skin, it it can can cause cause gaps gaps where where the the pieces of the fuselage are joined together. The imperfections are about the size of a human hair, so they're not visible to the naked eye. Over time. These tiny defects can impact the overall strike that the fuselage in the air flame. Boeing doesn't believe that it's an immediate safety concern. All the planes will be inspected and repaired, if needed at their next regular maintenance check in the Times suggests that this latest production issue is what led to the zero Dreamliner deliveries that we saw last month. I think a lot of us were quick to condemn the work of South Carolina when these fuselage problems were first reported, considering that Boeing was about to announce plans to move all 77 production to North Charleston, now looks like Boeing has a problem with the robotic equipment. That makes the fuselage pieces and not necessarily the plant where it is being made. So this is the latest in a string of production problems that we found in the Dreamliner. We've talked about over the year first, the after use allies problems found in South Carolina. Then there was a shipping production issue where they were making shims the wrong size to fit gaps. That was an issue in Salt Lake City. We also found out that inspectors were finding pieces of the horizontal stabilizer had been clamped together too tightly. Which could also cause gaps. Boeing says it's fake that shit issue and the stabilizer issue, But it continues to look for this fuselage smoothness issue, which seems to be a problem with the robotics or perhaps the autoclave, where they where they make these if you're not familiar, they basically spin. The shell around a form and then they bake it in and of it. That's him that at its simplest terms, that's how how they do it. And so there's some issues that they're trying to find in that predict, you know that robotic process They're to try Tol down these issues. Thanks, Chris

"Says search great Burgers, you know, if you're looking for maybe a little higher wage Adoption Halls Chophouse on King Street does an amazing job as you can imagine is very heavy, but they do some a great Seafood there to the service is impeccable Charleston Grill. Located in Belmond Charleston Place hotel has been a Mainstay in Charleston for longer than I can count and you know, I think a lot of people don't think about eating in a hotel under here in Charleston. But if you're looking for a white 2000 Honda an experience and you're not going to be anything better than Charleston Grill, you know, there's a lot of other great seafood places, which I think a lot of people think of when they're in Charleston Hank's Seafood is absolutely amazing ordinary, which is an old Bank building is an amazing seafood restaurant really really just a special experience and their sister restaurant stick. I think is one of the most coveted reservations and all the Charleston area and that is a menu that changes almost daily, you know, it's not just one type of fare on the menu, but it really gives you a great feel of what religion has to offer from a lot of different aspects wage. And the chef in the restaurant are all James Beard award winners. So, you know, I can keep going on and on and it's not just one type of figure. It's not judge one Ambience to the restaurant which are restaurants that you're going to get. It's a whole Gambit of different experiences and that brings up and we've talked a little bit about covid-19 and how the areas handle that are most restaurants and attractions open for business right now. Yeah, so South Carolina, we think our lawmakers here and have done an amazing job of things are best plan for all of us. You know, I think I heard a great thing when the the offset of this a few months ago that were building a flame War were flying and so, you know, I think to a certain extent involving Bond and just trying to figure out is to go and I think that our lawmakers here, he'll put us in a very good position to succeed and also make sure our businesses can succeed to the best of their ability off. I'm keeping everybody safe at the same time. Right or restaurants are open at 50% capacity right now and they're also offering outdoor seating. So a lot of restaurants previously did not have outdoor seating still are now offering outdoor seating. All of our retail space is open right now. I think right now it is limited capacity and Retail but everything is eligible to be open in that Arena. All of our tourism attractions are off or eligible to be open and all of our hotels are eligible to be able to you know, I think we've have just a few hotels that either open today or tomorrow, but everybody else has been open and took everything you can do pre-coated you can do now so, you know, I like I said, I think we've done a really good job of making sure that a balancing the fact that people need to be saved for business is also need to be and and I think we're well ahead of a lot of other states and in what we're able to offer and things that are open and I want to put a lot of trouble advisor to ask is you know, why Charles, Georgia? Now is not very distant populated area. Right? We don't have near as many Travelers right now as we normally do because of career. So you're you're going to be able to distance even more because of that and we have our reaches home and you know, you can do a lot of social distancing on our beaches in our waterways. We have, you know, amazing waterways here in Charleston where you can fish paddleboard you can you know, can dolphin wash or just so many things to do outdoors is a city that it is appreciated. It is best from in from the outdoors. So what's some local information that visitors need to know about visiting Charleston. Yeah right. Now we're off, you know, like I said, we're our businesses are doing a great job of balancing being open and keeping everybody safe. You know, I think that every a lot of people want to get out right now, especially in the Leisure Market, but there's too many concerns one is safety in what is what one of the second as well. So so back to what we were saying there's there's you know, we're doing a great job and making sure that our visitors in our people that live here are safe, but there's a dog A lot of things for people to do two things that I love to tell travel advisors to tell their clients to do when I talked to earlier is go to South Broad Street just get lost Just Lose Yourself and not be honest Network texture and and everything that has to offer cuz you're not going to find that anywhere else in America really is kind of an old world European field question the way we preserve but the houses and things like that wage and there's there's a neighborhood in Mount Pleasant called The Old Village right on the water. It has some beautiful houses and I'll tell travel advisors if you can get your clients to fight through their it's absolutely beautiful again blah blah, very large overhanging live oak trees, you know, I keep going the word Ambience and it's just amazing in that area. There's also a bridge in that area of town in the Old Village on Pitt Street bridge and as strong well and you can see it's an old bridge is not using a more people walk on it. They do yoga. They go swimming in the water right there and they finish their and it's probably a general fifteen minute walk out of 10 or 15 minute log. But you can see so many different parts of Charleston cuz because of our waterways it's so segmented. You can see the downtown historic district Sea Palms. You can see Sullivan's Island. So you just gives you a unique perspective and I mentioned those two things to do in Charleston because it's not something that visitors usually do. It's not something you read about on the internet. That's something you can buy take it for wondering and you can do whatever you want to do it. I think the biking is a great thing to do in the downtown historic district 5 through the area Walter the area but I think people should always experience Charleston from the water as well go out go out and Charleston Harbor kind of like I was saying in from the history bridge and just gives you a unique perspective of the city in the different areas of our our area, right? Yeah. There's no place like Charleston. So well, we appreciate you tie Mike. Thanks so much for being on the show today. Well, thank you very much for having me.

You heard the explanation, but could you think about it? Didn't believe. It at all. The fake name. To send money. Yeah, she's thinking on the money order. That is the three money orders Wendy wired to her ex husband Sam Yang wine one said under the stage name of a famous porn, Star. Now the recovering drug addict turned, whistle blower Aaron Him, despite all the defense efforts to discredit him him, they believed Mike Okay. We know that he's a bad guy. But Know he admitted upfront. I'm a bad person, but I'm no murder. But was the mastermind of the murder plot, or was it all Wendy. That's where got sticky. The jurors, including most of the group assembled here believe Chris was up to his neck in the plot I felt like he was the one who orchestrated. And was smart enough to know how to keep his hands off of it. He was a part of it all alone, but to make Chris of any of the three conspiracy counts against him. They would have to be unanimous and this jury was not. Chris some of them were sure was Wendy's dupe and not the boss of the plot and all. Think that he orchestrated I always thought that she did. And that she was the mastermind because it was her ex that. She went to four all this because he's done stuff in the past or whatever for hours and hours, the minority view refused to yield our one of three, and then finally the agreed on what they could return to. The courtroom took everything I had just to stand there and hold my breath. Not Fall apart. Wendy more guilty of all counts including solicitation and conspiracy to commit murder for hire. So, what was it like when you heard that, very? It was like being run over by truck. And Chris Latham. Guilty on. One Count of participating in a murder for hire and the moment they said guilty. It just. Felt like I could for the first time in in those two minutes. You know because you really do sit there and. You're not breathing and you feel like your heart isn't beating and you've turned into a statue. So. It was like all of a sudden. Human again. It was not, but the prosecutors ask for, but enough to send him to prison and end a stellar career, and now here you are in one of these units sleeping in a bunk about what two and a half feet wide on a plastic mattress. What do you think about when you go to bed at night? It's like a horrible. Nightmare that you cannot wake up from. You know you dream about the outside.

Lovers turn conspiritors. Wendy bore was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. She could be out by the time she's fifty or so.

I think we all completely understand that the outcome would have been very. More at not for you. Okay. I have I have prayed for you. I wish I could do something other than to tell you thank you. But? It just. There's nothing else I mean you save me. You Save my daughters. and. I'm so appreciative. Unbelievable that you. I'm in. The the graciousness. So. Oh and one more thing about Nancy. She finally got her divorce between investigation and trial. Nice. And now mistaken up an old dream. Stand up comedy. People here seriously. and. She certainly has no shortage of material divorce. Probably most of you didn't go the way. I hoped. It would go, but there is a mystery still which the prosecutors couldn't quite solve. We don't know if it was her idea. She pitched it to to Chris Latham. We don't know if it was Chris late. them's idea and he pitched it to Wendy more a bit to be honest with you. I think we'll probably just never know. But this we do know. Because of the conscience of an addict on America Street. We did not have to tell you the mystery of the murder of the banker's wife..

Take Care of things on the problem solver star witness of course was a man who hired for killing prevented Aaron Wilkinson. Here in court, Erin told the jury the whole strange tale and As, he did for the very first time Aaron laid eyes on the man he had come to believe was behind it all looking at slide them in core. was really the only good show, and I had about it about testifying. He's just self righteous smug. He's It felt good to sit there and tell the truth and knowing that it might help convict them. who was a jury to believe an establishment banker and his executive assistant. Or an ex-con heroin addict, trying to save his own skin. Easy answer says the defense attorneys. David spoke for Wendy and told the jury that drug addict Aaron Wilkinson was not a reliable witness. His testimony would change. You also saw him in Mitt various things on the stand that he originally had lied to the police about Chris's attorney. Steve Shuts called the prosecutors claim that killing Nazi was about saving money in a divorce. Ridiculous alimony with hardy put a dent in his six hundred fifty thousand dollar salary said. And as for exposing his affair with Wendy Moore, everybody knew about his. Affair Chris late them was not going to be fired because of his relationship with Wendy more, but it tricky to for the defense neither Christner. Wendy would say anything to harm. Each other didn't testify at all. Actually except unintentionally in those jailhouse phone calls which. Were certainly a worry, said the defense. Eight L. Monday. Fifteen minutes each Wendy. More call and Chris crucially the two of them talking. Arguably incriminating. Conversations own those phones. Even though the incrimination part of it is dubious, but it was the prosecution's job to persuade the jury that the bizarre story of the Heroin Junkie was actually true. Did they succeed. The jury got the case. Everyone waited Nancy at such hopes. When the jury came back into the courtroom to ask a question, I asked. The judge does a conspiracy to meet every single criteria to be found guilty. Watch as Wendy turned around and Smirk to her family like. Yeah, we're going to get off. They are not meeting all the criteria. And I remember Chris kind of got this. Look on his face like. You know it was kind of a little nod of his head and a little.

"The County Detention Center Charleston South. Carolina is a fine state of the art affair. Big Open dormitories, some for the men, some four the women. Each one equipped with sixty thin rubber mats for sixty steel and concrete, sleeping platforms on which in the autumn of two thousand thirteen to detainees in particular nurse to growing resentment, not at each other I knew. But the law putting them here. So close yet, so so far apart I figured that it would all get. Figured out. You know that they were figure out that it that this this isn't what happened I didn't do this. In one of his last calls before he was charged with three counts in the murder for hire plot Chris Comforted Wendy about the fix us in. The APP. But no more jailhouse phone calls now instead one floor up or was it down, Chris Latham waited to go on trial with his mistress, growing ever Paler the gloss of his high flying career at least temporarily quite absent. Even the bankers clothes he wore for our interview didn't quite fit anymore. You. You are a big deal once in this town. That's what the media says. Media avoided until this I said I certainly want to answer all the questions. Out on the stories, told us well. So we ask Chris about the prosecution's evidence against him, the maps in instructions prepared on his office, Computer and photos, which appeared to have gone directly from his cell phone to the murder-for-hire hit-back I never I never saw that package until my arraignment family photograph, which was in your possession, then turned up in the hit package with half cutout. Sure that was in possession, but also how to get to them. Well, hold on, you've got to law firms that have access to that information. There's a lot of people that had access to that information. It wasn't prepared just for me. Remember he wasn't a nasty divorce battle, and he turning over to his lawyers, reams of ammunition to use in court against Nancy I had conversations with my providence investigator. To gather this information and this information would look very similar to this to this package of information, but much of this material would have to have come from your computer or from a camera I mean. You're the one who took the picture of the front of the House that day. Absolutely I took that picture wound up in that package. PITCHER was also sent A. Divorce Attorney two days later so somehow magically. All of this stuff went to from an attorney to a private investigator to. A drug addict on the street telling the police that he's a hit package and he's supposed to kill somebody. We'll keep him on, and then you talk about it. Coming from our computer number, one other people had access to my computer access to my passwords. Chris offered no evidence that the legal are investigators had any hand whatever in the plot? But he couldn't deny that. His Executive Assistant Wendy overhead all his computer passwords. Are you denying that Wendy do these things? Are you saying it couldn't possibly have happen? I don't think Wendy would would do this. There's no incentive whatsoever for Wendy to WANNA. Harm you know Nancy, letham. What's in it for her? Ask You well. What's in it for her? I mean she can have without you having to pay alimony without you having to pay house payments without you have all those financial obligations, and without you having that woman around who's been driving you crazy for years? Yeah, no, if anything Wendy one of this chapter closed, she was very supportive of trying to subtle it without going to. To Court to take the high road every single time just to get this chapter closed in my life so that we can begin our Chapter Airlines just as Wendy had done, Chris denied he had any motive at all. Kill Nancy because he said he'd be looking forward to his day in court with her. He believed he said he was going to win. Wouldn't be required to pay a penny in alimony. So of course, he wanted Nancy there in court. That was my vindication. This is when it was all gonna come out, so who was behind it all Chris just like Wendy told is it had to be Wendy's ex Samuda wine with Aaron's help? Of course, I don't know if he wanted to harm her. He wanted to go in and vandalize her car, or if you wanted to confront her, I don't know what's in what was in has mon-, so you're suggesting Sam all on his own without Wendy's help and payments from Wendy aside. Put together that had package material that he what sneaked from somewhere would've had got it from Wendy or somebody, and secretly put it into a package so that he could do something to Nancy I'm telling Wendy I'm saying Sam and Erin Wilkerson. Did this on their on? Really. What would Sam Yana wine say about that? So far you've been talking only to his lawyer and family during jailhouse calls, that's hard with being in possession of a girl, the guy his. He had I I was eight hundred miles away. All the while prosecutors waited and dangled potential deals. Sam knew the secrets. Sam could break the case wide open, and then I remember very distinctly I. got a call from Asia Callahan. It was about eleven fifteen at night Samuel. Wind wasn't going to be talking ever. He hanged himself in his cell. This came from a note written on a Napkin Leifer his girlfriend. I love you Ray Ray. I'm finally free and I just remember that night thinking. Can this get any? Any stranger. Any worse. So time to roll the dice and go to court. But without Samuel. Did. They stand a chance of making a case against Charleston's now infamous banker. Coming up. A tough question for the prosecution. There's no body. There's no sort of crime scene. At a telling question from the jury, I watched as a wendy turned around and Smirk to her family like. We're GONNA get off. Dateline continues..

Fact Agent Joe Boykin told us and twenty six years in law enforcement is the first one I've ever gotten like that about a murder-for-hire about murder-for-hire that was in play. Early that Friday morning as agent Boykin and his partner Bobby Callahan asked they're skeptical. Questions Erin did not come off like some dissembling. Drug addict did all even despite his demeanor, you know having been on drugs and coming off of him, he had. He was very lucid. Aaron Bait the agents. If they just take him to his motel room, he could show them proof positive that a murder for hire was in progress Grand Hotel. Yes, it is. This is the motel where Aaron Wilkinson still twitching through a nasty heroin withdrawal fraud ATF agent Boykin. Callahan to show them that Manila envelope gold hit package. He told us you know that. This is the room that he and his wife Beth me were. Staying at and said that the hit package was in this room. So this is where we came to retrieve. What did the room look like? It was disheveled. It was it was like they had literally came in thrown everything about clothes all over drug paraphernalia on a bedside tables. It was a mess. So where was this pack? This package was literally. In, the drawer. And we opened up. It was laying right on top right where Aaron said it was, and we pulled it out. Of course we took precautions and gloves, and yeah, basically laid it out on the bed, so we could examine. Eleven pages inside the Plain Manila envelope left no doubt who the intended victim was. It was a lay them all right. Nancy Letham, the soon to be ex wife of Uber Banker Chris Latham. The details in the package. Made it very obvious this was a real murder-for-hire. It included her age. Her car license plates and also yeah how she came and went from her neighborhood, and what grocery store she even shot down. I've never heard of hit packet before. been bandied about as if that's a phrase, people know or something it would be an accurate description of exactly what it is. That package has very personal information about Nancy late them in our family photos of herself family her children, her residents ended even gave the hired killers away to accessory house, undetected to commit. The crime hasn't been seen by the hand scribe notes on the map there. How'd you get in successful exactly without having to go through the security gates? This was very elaborate, took a lot of time and effort to produce this. It was very clear what was supposed to take place. Aaron meanwhile grew more frantic by the minute, not just from heroin withdrawal. He had to. He told them just had to call Sam Janna wine. If Sam didn't hear from him and very soon said Aaron. Two things could happen thing one. Sam would find some other way to kill nasty before the Monday deadline and thing to. He'd come gunning for Bethany and Erin. Asked him to make the undercover call to record Sammy and to get incriminating information from Sami, regarding his participation in this plot. Yeah, he didn't WanNa, do it and I think he was afraid. To. Set Sammy up and it took a little convinced him to make that call. But he did swallowed his fear and follow the agents to do a conference room where they shut up the call. The undercover phone call May to leave visual Sammy. pod rehearsed Aaron to some extent of what to say to see what Sammy's responses would be to his own statements. and. Make. Mash! That! You've been watching Nancy at senior in her car, but had no shot because somebody was with her one of her daughter's friends. Seemed like she was rarely alone, he said so. Should he kill whoever was with her? Door ahead said Sammy.

He's a second generation realtor. He was born in ohio but he went to charleston with his family family and <hes> he has been featured on. H._d._t._v.'s island lies three different times so he really knows the charleston area and so i'm really happy to have him into. Welcome him onto the show. We're going to talk about all the ins and outs of retiring charleston south carolina so welcome bill thank you. Thanks for having me debbie no problem. Let's get right to it yeah. What do people like best about living in charleston. I mean i've visited there here so i can have a long list but you you talk to people every day. What are their favorite things about. Charleston charleston has a little bit of something something for. Everybody like to say we were. We've been voted the number one city in the united states by the readers of travel and leisure for seven years in a row so <hes> so we are huge vacation destination. I'm an that's what i find. A lot of people really love. Is i live where where people vacation you lucky so we could just pack up <hes> this past saturday. We decided let's go to the beach in the morning so we just packed act up twenty minutes later. We were at the beach with the kids. That's fabulous and you know and you know with with tourism comes your world class restaurants and you know you're museums in your sites in all of that good stuff so it kinda all bundles into one well. That's great will so what about the weather. I know there's probably a lot of humidity. 'cause you're so close to the water but many days of sun and what's the average temperature because people looking to charleston are looking for warmer tame pitchers in especially in the winter yeah so <hes> we are a sub tropical climate so we do get hot and humid <hes> by hot and humid. I mean today for example. It's august. They're saying we're gonna have a heat index of probably about one hundred five five two hundred and ten <hes> but our average temperatures you know during peak summer months we are upper eighties to mid nineties and but that is rounded out we do have very mild winters that rarely see snow out with peak winter temperatures. Were gonna see highs. You know forties fifties. It'll drop below freezing for a few days. <hes> two years ago we saw snow well. I accumulation in eight years so i'm sure everyone freaked out when they saw what five snowflakes or oh it was great it. It was like having a snow day as an adult. Everything was closed because they don't have snow plows to get you out. There is probably an eighth of an inch and everyone freaked out. We actually got about six inches. Oh my god in places and about four days later it was gone and people were golfing but they all stayed inside and had had a good time so that's it is but yeah it is right there on the water so it's kinda nice but we do get that breeze that comes in and kind of keeps it a little cooler but in the winter you know instead of the snow. We do get that breeze. We'll so we do get that that kind of biting biting wind but we don't get the the six months of snow plows and all of that so gladly trade. Yes some wind for six months. Yeah don't rub it in okay so a message taxes down there. If somebody's moving from high tax ax state down to south carolina they hire lower what are they property taxes sales tax and that sort of thing <hes> south carolina's very tax friendly for retirees for us <hes> our property taxes are essentially about half a percent of your value. Give or take <hes>. We're in the top six six. I believe last time i saw of the most budget friendly property taxes the states <hes> sales tax <hes> little bit higher here in charleston county. It's about nine percent <hes> than if you're eating out there's another two percent added to that and then another five percent liger drinks which but it evens out with the with the property taxes and then i think people live in their house more than they go out to eat right so it probably they can choose when they're going to how much drinking ranking it does encourage teetotalling. I suppose yes yes craig. Yeah it adds up. If you go out a lot but i personally i come from the restaurant industry three and it <hes> it doesn't really hurt restaurants or anything with other taxes. You know social security income isn't taxed here. That's good just very nice and there's also a fifteen thousand dollar deductions for seniors receiving any other type of income. I will not talk about that for a minute. What does that involve <hes>. That would be something to contact your tax professional about. You know i've been a real estate agent. I know the the basics of the taxes. I'm not fluent in all the tax laws i but i do know having many clients that have retired here that you know it is very tax friendly for them. Let sounds good. So is the cost of living higher or lower than other parts of the country. How does that compare <hes> we are slightly above average for the united states as a whole so so it would depend on where you're coming from myself. I came from youngstown ohio where you can imagine the cost of living is extremely low compared to here her but we see a lot of people moving from bigger cities <hes> new york chicago boston d._c. Compared to their we are lower. <hes> you know the last on the scale where one hundred was average ridge. We were like a one zero five. We're just just above average. It all works itself out and that's the main thing well. When people who are retiring wanna mu oh they also look into like hospitals and medical facilities doctors and things like that so how what is that scene like down there in charleston <hes> <hes> so our main hospital downtown is called 'em u._s._c. which stands for the medical university of south carolina as a teaching hospital will and it is the number one hospital in south carolina <hes> that's according to u. S. news and world report <hes> you know in addition to that there are there's the v._a. Hospital and then the two other major area are three actually three other major hospitals east cooper medical center rubber saint francis in so we do have a large medical presence here in charleston and that's not just downtown on they do have branches that go out all the way up to somerville which is about forty five minutes away a little suburb of charleston and there's plenty of medical facilities here sure great well now. What about the walkability. I remember one time when i visited charleston <unk> rickshaws to take you places but i'm sure not. Everybody wants go to someplace in a rickshaw but i'm sure they probably dot h in. I thought it was fun because we let someone drive you around. It was fun <hes> so is it a walkable city or do you have to drive everywhere and their public transportation. There is public transportation on not the greatest right now. They're working on that. <hes> as as we're growing we've been growing fairly fast over the past few years <hes> as for walkability that would depend on where you are. <hes> people say charleston you think of just the peninsula which could be walkable but i would suggest having a car <hes> most things aren't just like walk down the store. Get loaf of bread and come back but as a whole you know the whole area does cover three counties when i when i say charleston i kinda talk about that. Whole area <hes> and you know each has its little pockets. Some neighborhoods are little more walkable than others. <hes> you know if you're active a bike lake. <hes> i take my bike down all the time and ride around and you see a lot of people doing that great so i i would say bike. Ability downtown is probably a little better than walkability depending on where you would live. If you're downtown everywhere else would be a definite definite a drive to most places. I remember when i was there. The restaurants were just awesome and i know from reading other reports that more and more restaurants are opening like you said it's a it's a place for restaurants and and shopping to and i know there's probably a lot of museums the nightlife scene you talk about that so that people understand a little bit more about what they're gonna do when they moved there so my previous life i was a a bartender so this is one of my specialties so yeah like i said because of the tourism we've got these world class restaurants with james beard winning chefs. <hes> trip advisor puts out there travelers choice awards every year. We had three restaurants in the top ten and wow and it's not just goes restaurants that are you know. Let's get all dressed up in fancy. You're in the south. If there's one thing people love to do in the south it's just grab some fried oysters in a cold beer and and that's dinner wow you know they might not be winning awards but they've won awards now my god yet try twisters. I'd be there in a heartbeat yet so fried oysters thor's southern barbecue just that good old southern cooking lots cornbread and collard greens but like i said conversely. We've got these three top ten restaurants in the country so you could do that or you could go to say halls chop house which is a nationally known steakhouse and have one of the best you've ever had great. So what is this thing about as i've heard it's called second sunday on king st tell me about that because it sounds interesting yeah so king. Street is the main main street downtown. Where most of the shopping thing is when people picture shopping in charleston king street is what they picture every second sunday of the month as it is named and they closed down about half mile street and no vehicle traffic is allowed and about five hours people just wander the streets rates in the restaurants will pool tables out onto the sidewalk. They'll be street performers playing music sidewalk sales and you know people we'll set up booths to sell stuff and it's just a just a fun time to kind of experienced like what old world charleston probably w was like before there was all the traffic and sounds wonderful. I i also fights for that absolutely so tell me some reasons that somebody would want to a retired at charleston a lot of my clients <hes> when i counsel them. They're trying to decide where north carolina south carolina florida wherever they wanna go. What what why would they want to pick. <hes> retirement in charleston talk about that. You know what you said at the beginning that you're a history buff you know american history as we know it kind of started here with the civil war so everywhere you turn there's remnants of the civil war whether you know you're taking the boat out to fort sumter where the first shots were fired or just the other day i was walking around downtown down and there was an old cemetery and lo and behold there was someone who signed the declaration of independence was buried there. Wow so you know if you're a history three buff. There's a ton of history.
