But never one is dramatic at that. As that one which had flames coming out of it. You can see the fans still turning in the front and most worrying to me. You could see the engine as a whole shaking and vibrating on the way, which calls into question if that had happened over the middle of the Pacific, where they had to fly for two hours and more with an engine in that condition what those vibrations have caused serious structural damage and secondary damage to the aircraft. What do we know about this ancient Ensign? And how? Why? Or how is it different than other engines that you might see on a plane? Well, this particular engine is one that they expect the beginning of the Triple Seven program. In fact, the instant aircraft that happened that where this happened in Denver that aircraft was, I believe the fifth one off the assembly line. Back in 1994, and it started flying with United and 1995 and has been with them continuously sunset. This is engine that's part of a syriza's of engines that parent what they have developed for airliners for several decades. And this was an evolutionary design at the time. That was bigger, more powerful because at the time the 747 was the largest aircraft in the Boeing inventory, but its engines were actually smaller. These engines were bigger, more powerful, because essentially you had a virtually.

Coronavirus cases and hospitalizations surge in Seattle's King County
"A catastrophe his words waiting to happen. In a press briefing, He described the exponential growth of the Corona virus outbreak. I need to acknowledge that cases, hospitalizations continue to rise and King County at alarming rates. Our cases are doubling approximately every two weeks and we reached a new peak with approximately 700 new cases reported each day last week. That's nine times higher than what we saw in late September in about 3.5 times higher than the previous peaks. We saw In the summer and in the original outbreak in the spring, we had close to 900 cases reported on the 19th. We are also seeing a sustained increase in hospitalizations with our daily hospitalizations, increasing 3 to 4 fold compared to October. That's every day 3 to 4 fold More people being hospitalized in King County for the last three weeks we've seen between 101 160 people hospitalized per week. And that number was in the low fifties during most of November. We're also seeing a recent increase in hospitalizations among 80 year olds and older and among the 60 to 69 year old group over the past week, and this is very concerning trend for us, because as you know, Previously majority of our cases and hospitalizations have been in the younger and middle aged adults. Another worrisome sign increasing numbers of APP breaks in the size of outbreaks that we're managing in long term care facilities. We had approximately 61 outbreaks reported over the last four weeks compared to 30 in the prior four weeks. We're hearing a briefing from King County Health Officer Dr Jeff Duchin. I would appreciate it if you could perhaps describe where we're at right now, with the increasing hospitalizations. And the leg of a few weeks before we unfortunately, see deaths increase. How bad might this get? Well, thank you for your question, Charlie. You know, like much of a covert 19. It's hard to predict precisely where we're headed. But all indicators Right now in King County suggests it's going to get very bad, particularly if people gather and significant ways over Thanksgiving are subsequently And if we don't do something differently, we as you know, we've been asking providing information and asking the public to limit their activities and take steps to prevent covert transmission for weeks now, yet we're still seeing a relentless rise in cases. That is now being followed by a significant rise and hospitalizations, significant impacts on our health care system. So theoretically, you know, if we don't get this under control, what we can see is the hospitals filling up. That means they're at capacity both in their critical care intensive care units and with the amount of staffing that they have cannot care for critically ill patients who absolutely need that otherwise, and I don't know how Also, I can express it. The that is about as bad as it gets. With respect to, you know, the impact on our health care system. People not getting a life statement care that they need and was hearing about other hospitals and other parts of the country Approaching that point now So clearly, if the operate continues to progress, the way it's progressing that we will reach that point.

Concerns rise over election-related unrest
"Episode of the Coma politic cast recorded Monday. Almost Charlie Harder goes in depth with political strategist Kathy Allen and Randy Peple. In this excerpt, Charlie asked them about their concerns for the coming days. Shops are boarded up in Seattle and across the country. We saw those trucks with the trump flags on them surround the Biden bus over the weekend, and then on the far left, you have streets burning with riots and violence happening. I gotta ask you what's your level of concern for the threat of violence in the days following the election? It all depends, I suppose on to turn out, but I suspect I think we're gonna have a lot of celebration and not necessarily the kind that break windows and scream and yell at each other. I tend to think it will be much more of a festive and positive time. With everyone's expectations. Likely to wonder what comes next. Ready. Charlie. I share your concern. I think that there is a real danger of violence because we've already seen violence in the streets all summer long in some of our major cities in the United States, and now you're going to have a situation where there's a good chance that the vote totals tomorrow night. Are going to favor Donald Trump. His supporters are more likely to be voting at the Poles. Those votes they're going to be counted on Election day, and so it is very likely that he'll be ahead on Tuesday night and then we will see the lead start to slip away. As other state start counting their mail and votes, And the problem is each day that goes by each hour. That goes by where more votes are coming away, and his lead is getting smaller that his people are going to be believing that It's being stolen, and that's what can lead to violence. And, frankly, on the left. There are some that they're going to embrace it. Just like on the far right. There are groups out there that want to embrace the violence. They want chaos. They are anarchists. And that is the danger that we're gonna have, and next weekend if we don't have a very clear decision in the presidential race. That's gonna be a day weekend that I'm staying indoors. We're speaking with political strategists, Randy Peple and Kathy Allen cabbie. Well, I could also say that that which gives me great hope that that's not gonna happen Is that the number of votes that have indeed come in now? Give me that sense of a really security blanket and well, by the way and taking a look today at all of the estimates as to how many of those votes that have come in You know, over a dozen states right now are saying they will have far more counter the name ever can act on election night. But the problem with that, Kathy is that in Pennsylvania, they're not even allowed to look. You said that thing. But the fact is, is that that's one state and that is the state. I feel most likely is going to have those log log route of divided and they will have disappeared. People voting on Election Day as they have indeed been voting early. I appreciate that, Kathy, but I tend to look at where the candidates are spending their time to decide where they think they need the most help. And the entire Biden campaign is in Pennsylvania tomorrow on today, I mean the he's there. Carla Harris is there. His wife is there her husband is there. I mean, they're putting all their eggs in that basket. If they were secure about Pennsylvania, they would be somewhere else. And that's why I'm concerned because under Pennsylvania law, they're not allowed to even start checking the signatures. On the mail in ballots until 7 a.m. tomorrow, and many of the county clerks have said Hey at 7 A.m. tomorrow will get ready for election Day. We aren't even gonna look at our mail in ballots until Wednesday and Pennsylvania is the tipping point state. If Florida goes for Trump, Pennsylvania or North Carolina is going to be the one that will determine whether or not he holds on And so that's what I'm very concerned about. I'm actually not as concerned about Pennsylvania. I think he's putting a homecoming together that actually will indeed increased the number of people that will vote for him.

And it's currently currently telling telling us us that that the the outbreak outbreak is is growing, growing, he he warns, warns, is is likely likely thousands thousands of of people people in in King King County County currently currently have have the the Corona Corona virus. virus. Colleagues Colleagues at at the the Institute Institute for for Disease Disease Modeling estimate that there were between 609,400 people actively infected with covert 19 on a single day. August 10th. With the best guess around 4500. So the point is that what you see in official numbers only represent a fraction of the actual number of people who have infectious covered 19 in the community. While our efforts were able to bring the numbers down following the initial outbreak, they've risen in the past few weeks and don't seem to be going down. Having about 130 to 140 cases reported each day over the past week, which is about 3.5 times what we had in early June. Doctor Duchin says. People are letting their guards down some trying to get their socializing in before a long, cold, lonely season ahead. We know that there have been many indoor gatherings, indoor parties with large numbers of people at times, Andi even outdoors, where the risk is much lower. Much, much lower because of the natural ventilation in the sunlight. Sometimes a prolong close face to face contact still happens.

Bring us up to date on the back and forth over the Postal Service. Yes, President Trump continues to claim that Ah, mail in ballots.

It would be $25 billion within the Democrats $3 trillion proposal that would be going to the Postal Service. But none of that is going to get paid out.

They want the White House to come up Ah, trillion dollars from there $1 trillion deal and basically meet them in the middle. But the Trump Administration said yesterday on the phone call with Pelosi that they're not going to do that The impact continues. We just heard from a Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell few minutes ago that he is releasing senators to go home for August recess and s so that means the earliest we could be talking about a deal is after Labor Day.
