'Woke' Media Fails to Ask NBA Coach About China
"Com. Josh cross how are you and NBA fan? Somewhat. I mean, I kind of lost interest in the NBA when wizards don't make the playoffs at all. But yeah, I follow the NBA. I like basketball. Say you know, Popovich is allegedly this brilliant guy. He's very good basketball coach, but yesterday, Gruden gets fired from misogynistic homophobic emails and Popovich compares Columbus to Hitler and doesn't get asked a question about the genocide in China and the Uyghurs in his complicity in that. What's wrong with the NBA sports media? Well, not just the sports media, it's the leadership of the NBA, which I think they've suffered the most of all the four sports leagues because they got the most political, all the leaks of some extent have gotten more political than they once were, but the NBA really just like, I remember during the bubble season they put Black Lives Matter on the court. They let players offer their political takes on things left and right. And that's not a great place to be. We want one of the top roles of building a good team and effective team is that you're not divided by politics. You're one team and you don't talk about these issues that have nothing to do with the MBA. Popovich has a long history of offering his political takes. This becomes a no surprise to me that he says something like that. Well, I don't mind is giving his hot political takes, but if he's gonna give it take on Hitler, genocide, slavery in Columbus, somebody ought to ask him about the Uighurs and the ongoing genocide in China from which he profits yes and so much of sorry, someone should ask the silver and someone should ask a lot of the players who play in China, you know, what they think about that. Not so much more relevant, timely issue for the NBA, at least, but you're right, that there's sort of a double standard and you don't get the type of scrutiny. You're going to open everything up to politics. You might as well should be talking about issues that directly affect the NBA and the bottom line. And if you're going to hijack if you're going to hijack a basketball press conference to rant about Hitler in Columbus, you're going to get asked to China question if you have a real

It wants took thousands of american engineers more than a decade to get something into space. Now this company says it's huge three d. printers can make a rocket in two months. Maybe less we have a fourth generation printer if you haven't talked about publicly yet but it's ten times faster printing than this so instead of building a rocket few slides in sixty days. It'll take six days. Not only can the company make the big parts of a rocket like a nosecone but they can also make all the intricate components of the engines to one zero. The first launch plan for twenty twenty. Two relativity rockets is like a lower budget competitor to spacex carrying satellites for nasa the department of defense and a half dozen private companies at about a quarter of competing launch prices. But with one point three billion in funding it doesn't exactly feel low budget clients. I'm assuming are going to pay you enough to somehow make this all work more than enough to justify it. We make twelve million dollars launch from the customers. We signed up. We've signed up more launches than any other company in history before flying.

A Close Call With A Neighbor
"This hometown. The subject line is close. Call with a neighbor hi fam. I've tried to write this story down concisely multiple times but there's so much crazy shit that went on that it's hard to keep it short. Here's my best shot. All we ask right. Destroy your best. Try your best. I lived in an apartment building in downtown columbus. Ohio when i was twenty three one night at three am. I was woken by the sound of someone trying to turn my luck and open my apartment door. I was scared. But i figured it was just someone drunk or lost a yelled through the door.

I called nine one one and luckily the police arrived in time to remove him from my door just before he could break it down.

April, 1779: Spain Enters the War
"April seventeen seventy nine. France and spain signed the treaty of iran. Wes which effectively drew spain into the war. With britain for the past couple of centuries spain had been francis traditional ally and britain's traditional enemy while spain did not share francis enthusiasm for american liberty. It did harbor grudges against britain and welcomed an opportunity to settle some of them by entering the war in the late seventeen. Hundreds spain was near the height of its worldwide empire.

I know the Dr Dixon and the school board are also taking extra time for digital training for teachers and how to engage students virtually. And probably some help for some parents who I've had to engage in a little virtual education in my little one here in the last year or so and I have a lot to learn from educators. This is the definition of leadership. Turning a trial into an opportunity and in this case to engage and teach differently. The situation we are now in is not permanent. But actions we take today. Will help us emerge on the other side. Stronger. And Safer. In the meantime we must focus our attention on assuring that our young people. Remain healthy. engaged. Challenge with academic rigor by the professionally trained educators albeit being delivered. Differently Than we had hoped for the time being. Style my pleasure to introduce. Our leader and a great public health advocate for this community doctrine. Sheikha. Roberts. Good afternoon everyone and thank you mayor Ginther thank you Dr Dixon and board President Adair for having me here today. And for your thoughtful partnership as we all work together during this Kobe nineteen pandemic. I know these are very trying times and Columbus public health is proud to work with you along with you to protect all Columbus City schools, students, teachers, staff as well as their families. We're helping. Our. Entire. Community. As the mayor and so many others have said these are not easy days. These are not easy decisions that we all have to make but were making them to make sure that we meet the educational needs of our students while also protecting their health and the health of those around them. But the facts drive our decisions and we must use those facts to help us make the right decisions for the health and safety of our community. Cases here in Columbus continue to rise we currently have over twelve thousand cases and unfortunately we've lost three, hundred, eighty, nine of our residents due to this virus. Let me paint a picture for you've just how things have changed just in the last six weeks. If we look at the data in mid Bay, the seven day moving average for cases was one hundred and six cases per day. By May fifteen. The, seven day moving average had decreased eighty six cases per day. And then it continued to decrease until we got to mid June By. Mid June to mid July. We saw a substantial increase and the seven day moving average jumped to two hundred and seventeen cases per day. That's an increase of two, hundred and twenty percent. It clearly shows that this virus is circulating in there continues to be wide community spread. As you know Columbus was recently named as eleven cities to watch by the White House, Corona Virus Task Force, and they encouraged us to take aggressive steps to combat the spread of covert. Nineteen. Franklin County continues to be at level three or read county. During the state's public health advisory system. So that's something we're also monitoring. Given all of that that I shared with you now is simply not the time to risk the health and safety of our students, our teachers and our staff and bringing them back to classroom face to face. Until, we can reverse these trends, children and their families and our entire school community are at risk and we must do everything. We can to protect them and prevent the spread of covid nineteen. The steps announced today by Dr Dixon and Columbus City schools will help us reduce those increasing numbers during this pandemic. We will continue to monitor our cases as we always do. We'll continue to work with the mayor Dr Dixon and all others in our community to protect the health and safety of Columbus City schools and all of our residents during this pandemic I thank you for your time this afternoon. Thank you Dr Roberts. Thank you for your guidance during this incredibly difficult time to our mayor. Thank you for your partnership and your leadership to our superintendent. What a couple of new years have been for you but we really appreciate your leadership making these decisions and to President Adair in the Board of Education thank you for being in the trenches with in four our families as these conversations have progressed as a proud Columbus city schools graduate I'm glad to be with you this afternoon. It's important that we stand together during these unprecedented times we've heard from parents and teachers over the past few weeks about the concerns about schools opening during the coalition nineteen surge. We stand here together today to let you know that we hear you. This is an incredibly difficult situation facing our community and we have to do the basic things as individuals and as organizations to limit the spread of this virus. As individuals we know what we have to do, and we get these directions from Dr Roberts. We have to minimize the amount of people that we are around. We can't invite all of our friends and family over to our backyard cookouts. We must marry wear a mask when we go out. We must continue to wash our hands. But in order to make sure individuals can do the right thing organizations need to lead. That's why the city put forward or mask mandate prior to governors eventual order. That's why last night we pass legislation to close bars restaurants nightclubs at ten PM. And that's why council voted unanimously with the leadership of my colleague chair Elizabeth Brown to approve laptops for twenty thousand students. Bought with dollars federal dollars from our leaders like Joyce. Beatty..

"This is Columbus concerns a public affairs presentation of North American Broadcasting. Here's your host Mark News and thanks much for joining us. This morning on Columbus concerns the city of Columbus and the state of Ohio are set to get back to work in fact the governor and the mayor have outlined plan to slowly start reopening businesses during the covert nineteen pandemic and this week the mayor of Columbus along with his health. Commissioner Dr Machine for Roberts held a press conference to talk about how Columbus will be opening up in stages so this morning on Columbus concerns the mayor of Columbus Andrew Ginther and the Columbus Health Commissioner. Dr Masika Roberts. We know our community. His suffering greatly from cove in nineteen physically emotionally financially. One thousand five hundred twenty nine residents in Columbus have been infected. Thirty eight have died. Twelve percent of our neighbors are unemployed and many are facing food and housing insecurities but thanks to the leadership and partnership of Governor Dewine in the steadfast effort of our neighbors we have significantly reduced. The rate of infection spared our hospitals and healthcare systems from being overwhelmed. We've helped to save lives but the virus is still among us and efforts to reopen. Must be based on the best science available. It is not business it you as usual but I support. The governor's thoughtful measured approach to reopening the economy slowly and safely. We've expressed five areas of need to Governor Dewine before we contemplate reopening and we've made great progress. We asked about greater flexibility and expanded access to testing and just since our engagement the number of tasks statewide or going from thirty seven. Hundred Seventy two hundred a day with plans to ramp up to fifteen thousand and ultimately twenty two thousand tests a day just in the next couple of weeks. We asked for increased testing supplies and kids just last week. A thousand kits were brought to Columbus Public Health for Dr Robertson. Her team to use partners here in the community. We've asked for the encouraging Recommendations for all residents to wear facial coverings in public because we know how important that is to protecting ourselves and our neighbors particularly the employees on the front lines are grocery stores or pharmacies. We wanted clear consistent. Guidance on mass gatherings throughout the state and the governor has assured us that they will remain in place for the foreseeable future. We also asked for clear guidance and support on managing testing containment and mitigation of Kobe. Nineteen at Long Term Care Facilities Dr Robertson shared with me that there has been a comprehensive plan that's been developed by the Ohio Department of Medicaid and the Ohio Hospital Association for doing this work moving forward if you listen to governor wind yesterday you know. We've made great progress on all these fronts. We will be reopening the city slowly as we continue to monitor infections any business that is open whether they have been opened over the last several weeks or will re open in the days to come must foul stringent guidelines on social distancing proper hygiene cleaning and face coverings for employees and customers. Let's go through the timeline on. May First. Dennis in veterinarians can open elective medical procedures. That don't require an overnight. Stay those can resume on. May Fourth Construction Distribution Manufacturing in general office environments can reopen or continue on May twelfth consumer retail and other services can resume but let me reiterate that these businesses can only reopened or resume. Only if they meet the stringent guidelines of distancing proper hygiene in facial coverings. I also WanNa remind everyone that the stay at home order remains in place. We strongly encourage all residents to only leave home when absolutely necessary. That restaurants and bars are not reopening for dine in in mass. Gatherings of more than ten people are still prohibited. As we move forward in safely opening our community we will continue the monitor the spread of Cova nineteen we all have a role to play in keeping our communities safe and I ask all Columbus residents to do their part and act responsibly. Now like ask Dr Roberts to give us her latest updates and talk about why the five elements of our plan. are so important to making sure we open safely here in the city. Dr Roberts thank you so much mayor Ginther and good morning everyone Since before the first case of Cova nineteen was identified here in Columbus. We have been working in tandem with Governor Drawing Dr Amy Acton from Ohio Department of Health as well as with Mayor Ginther to protect the health and safety everyone in our community from this virus. Thanks to their leadership as well as the collaborative efforts of our community especially all of you in the listening audience of your resolve of all of our residents to practice the guidance to stay at home and only go outside for those essential duties to wash your hands and really avoiding contact with other people. While we've seen the curve flatten Over the last few days it remains this virus still remains a risk for our community. It's a highly infectious disease that we all need to be on guard for moving forward. We need to continue to be very diligent and fight against it again. We must remain cautious while we're fighting against this Virus and as we've seen over the last few weeks it didn't come to fruition the way it could have. And that's all due to the efforts of everyone in our community of practicing that social distancing avoiding large gatherings not having large gatherings and only going out for essential duties as a result of that our hospitals did not see a surge in cases whether it be to their er in their intensive care units and we did not see widespread transmission and our community of Cova nineteen but as the mayor said an order for our community to reopen. There were five things that we really wanted to see from the state and fortunately we have seen Many if not all of those we said we needed more testing and more swab kits. We need clear guidelines of how to handle mass gatherings we needed some guidance about about face coverings or the wearing of masks and we also needed some guidance and support of how we manage congregate living settings or long term care facilities. We've seen in the last few days and even in the last few weeks that the state has come through with many if not all of those requests and we appreciate that. Protecting our community is a multi layered approach that comes from the state down down to the city and then we all work together to make sure that we're protecting each other. We have been consistent with the governor and Ohio Department of Health on the stay at home orders as well as the gradual reopening of our state. That's a science. Based and data based approach we will continue to work in conjunction with them on this gradual. We opening as outlined by the governor yesterday afternoon during this time Columbus Public Health will continue to do what it does best which is to protect the health and safety of everyone in our community. It's the key role and we're GONNA play a very key role in this response and reopened moving forward. I WANNA walk you through three things. At Columbus Public Health will continue to do and we'll increase our efforts over the next few weeks as Ohio and Columbus Reopens I. We're GONNA continue with our case and contact investigation and as governor described yesterday. That contact investigation is going to be really critical for a reopening Ohio. Right now I have a team of disease. Investigators who contact every case that's been identified by a lab here in Columbus as well as in Worthington. We interview that case and we get as much information as we can from that individual about potential exposures and who they could have been exposed to and we get a list from them of their contacts. My team then reaches out to those contacts and for every case. We usually have four to six contacts. They've been exposed to that. We need to quarantine and contact. That person asked them if they had any of the symptoms and asked them to quarantine for the next fourteen days to make sure that if they do develop those symptoms they limit their exposure to others. That work will continue and it will likely grow as we start to test more individuals in our community and as individuals in our community. Go Out and about and either go back to work or do some of their daily activities. Those numbers will likely increase. The second that we're going to continue to do is surveillance we Look at E. R. reports. Ems runs about respiratory disease activity in our community. We also look at the sale of over the counter medications about respiratory diseases.

"Also this morning on Columbus concerns. We're going to hear from Jerome Adams. The surgeon general of the United States on the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on covering your face when going out in public. I want to unpack the evolution of our guidance on math because it has been confusing to the American people. First of all I want people to understand that the CDC the World Health Organization my office in most public health and health organizations and professionals originally recommended against the general public wearing masks. Because based on the best evidence available the time it was not deemed that that would have a significant impact on whether or not a healthy person wearing a mask would contract Kovic nineteen. We have always recommended that symptomatic people wear a mask. Because if you're coughing if you have a fever if you're symptomatic you could transmit disease to other people what has changed and our recommendation. Well it's important to know that we now know from recent studies. The significant portion of individuals with corona virus lack symptoms. They're what we call a symptom and even those who eventually become pre-symptomatic meaning that they will develop symptoms in the future can transmit the virus to others before they show symptoms means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity for example coughing. Speaking or sneezing even at those people were not exhibiting symptoms and light of this new evidence. Cdc recommends in the Task Force recommends wearing cloth faith coverings in public public settings. Where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain the include places like grocery stores and pharmacies? We especially recommend this areas of significant community based transmission. It is critical and the president mentioned this. The vice president mentioned this. It's critical to emphasize that maintaining six feet of social distancing remains key to slowing the spread of the virus but additionally advising the use of simple cloth coverings to slow the spread of the virus and to help people who may have the virus in do not know it from transmitting it to others. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical mask or in ninety five respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders as recommended by the current. Cdc Guidance as the president also mentioned cloth faith covering fashion from household items or made at home from common materials. That low cost can be used as an additional voluntary public health measure the recommendation compliments and does not replace the president's Corona virus guidelines for America thirty days to slow the spread which remains the cornerstone of our national effort to slow the spread of the virus. Cdc is always always looking at the data. We've told you that from the beginning. Dr Burke said that every single press conference we're looking at the data we're evolving our recommendations and new recommendations will come of the evidence dictates.

"This is Columbus concerns a public affairs presentation of North American Broadcasting. Here's your host Mark News at. Thank you so much for joining us this morning. On Columbus concerned we of course are going to focus on the corona virus pandemic and some of the developments. This week we're going to start off hearing from the Ohio Adjutant General Major General. John Harris his soldiers from the Ohio. National Guard and reserves have been out helping foodbanks replenish their stocks of food for the most needy ohioans but now they have a new task and that is helping build hospital capacity so this week on Columbus concerns. We're going to start off with Ohio adjutant. General Major General John Harris. We're dialed in with a laser focus on this build out to make sure that when we had the peak of infections here in Ohio for the nineteen cases that we give the front line warriors those those healthcare providers the best chance possible to ensure that no patient who need healthcare goes without the appropriate level of healthcare shortage of beds or bedspace or equipment. So we're working tirelessly at that. We have two great advantages working in our favor right now. One is the fact that we have a three or four week. Look at what we have coming. We know what other states have experienced. We know with other countries have experienced. And we're applying those lessons learned from doing that to make sure that we provide the best care for folks here in the second advantage is the fact that Dr Act and then the governor sometime ago strategize this this regional approach so that the major health systems hospitals nursing homes within regions all the health providers come together and work together to optimize the resources that they had. What that means is is that we know now we know under this structure that the sickest patients have the opportunity land in a hospital. They're going to be in the in the acute care facilities in the rooms that are setup provide the care for those sickest patients other states have not had that that ad advantage. So that's very important because that means that the facilities at we're looking at building out are going to be for the less sick patients that means that the requirements are going to be at a lower level so that we can build those facilities out more quickly and provide the support of healthcare systems. Need so what you Mason. The communities may not look like you've seen another state you may not see trucks full of of construction equipment. Builders building things because that's not the protest at most of the regions are taking most of the regions are taking the approach that we're going to go into a larger facility and build up that facility for care of those lesser sick patients. So while you all see guardsmen or engineers necessarily building things what you will see our maybe assembling partitions partitions for those for those facilities out of the transportation of beds so those are the sorts of things that we're looking as we talk about building out facilities and it's important to point out that it's going to be different for every region because the hospitals in the region are different. The approaches are different but again the strategy is to make sure that the second the sickest patients land in the most critical care rooms so they get the level of care that they need and so we are in support of the healthcare system or emphasize. This is this is a consolidated approach so it involves community in the healthcare providers in those communities in an emergency managers and when the governor talks about our teams on the ground our teams are there not only to coordinate that effort to interface with our healthcare systems but we have other teams of engineers. That'll be moving around the community doing the assessments facilities. So it's exciting to watch this develop because the approach is working you know that the approach is working and the key is to make sure that that we might be sources right search as the police words needed the most at the right time and again when I talk about search capacity. It's not just the facilities. We have lots of OAKS. The Department of Health that organ to build staffing staffing search capability. So that so that when I with those healthcare work in healthcare workers run out of capacity out there in the hospitals we. Aba Search doctors nurses and other professionals to help assist with the village limited. So it's that we get them. We prioritized those resources to where they're needed at the right times. And this is all occurring while the guards continuing its its other missions. The Food Pantries. We're working twelve pantries around the state and we expect that that footprint to grow the guard helping run warehouses for the Department of Health and of course higher military preserve is running donation warehouse at our Sullivan Avenue Armory so we are open for business to take donations of PP at Sullivan Avenue. And you can find that address online and before. I leave I'd like I'd like to talk about one other topic that I think is important. It's it's a slightly different topic but it's equally important and that's that's cyber hygiene quite frankly right now. Our our networks are networks. We know our systems are probably running at higher capacity in the most of Ron probably ever or people working from home more e commerce being done more telework artwork folks and so it's important that we protect the network so I advise you use this time. Use This I'm wisely at home to protect yourself and your family change those. If you're like me every one of your kids friends ever come through your house with a device as your Wi fi passwords. Probably a good time to change those change. Those passwords on Route Airs A. Now's a good time to make sure that your kids are practicing good cyber hygiene. Take the time to update your antivirus software's every every note that we protect helps us protect that network and protecting that network certainly protects Commerce Ohio. So thank you for an thank you for your what you thought as a high winds help flatten the earth. Every one of your individual efforts contributes to how tough the fight has got to be for the those first line provides those those healthcare workers that are going to be slugging it out during the peak of this during the peak of this sir. Everyone of your individual efforts will help determine how that fight will be for them and right. Now we're in a great place and just like our flagship game the Buckeyes. We always find win up next on Columbus concerns. We're going to focus on the backbone of Ohio's economy which is small business. Lieutenant Governor John. Huston has been part of that effort to try to help. Small businesses weather the storm while so many are closed during this corona virus pandemic. He gave an update on Friday of the very latest. When it comes to help available to Ohio's small businesses. I wanted to talk about a couple of things today. We'LL FIRST START WITH SMALL BUSINESS. Actually just a couple of hours ago. Columbus Mayor Ginther and Dayton Mayor. Whaley and I joined a virtual town hall with small businesses from across Ohio to get their perspective on how things are going for them. What ways we can assist them some of the struggles in the innovations that they're going through. I was frankly just amazed at the creativeness and the ingenuity of how ingenuity of pivoted during this time to try to supply new things that are needed in the economy. Because we were. We were on the with Mary. Anthony Air Inter. It reminded me of a phone call that I had governor thirty one days ago today where he said that he just got off the phone with with Mayor Ginther and they were talking about banning spectators from the Arnold Sports Festival. And I remember at the time. How difficult of a decision that that felt like and today it seemed like it should have been an easy one because clearly we didn't want to have people from eighty countries one hundred thousand visitors to Columbus. Had We gone for Ruth at the consequences would have been would have been devastating and so but? I know we all knew at the time that these decisions were going to affect small businesses and business in general in our economy. The Corona virus is not just a health viruses economic virus on us all and the fight to help get us through it on all. Those fronts is constantly on our minds. We have taken many steps. been including the forgiveness of BBC payments through June. The insurance grace periods on a variety of insurance products that regulatory relief that will help compliance and sustainability for many businesses actions that we took on evictions and Mortgage Relief. All of those are helpful. But I got a call really as the sun was coming.

"To be determined. we're going to focus a little bit on the economy here in Ohio as we hear from the Lieutenant Governor John. Houston one of the things that I know. When you hear that as part of the health crisis that we're experiencing that there's also not only help things -iety but a lot of economic anxiety and I know that what the Federal Government just past Senator Portman talked about gives us the resources to help get through weather that storm so to speak of the economic storm that we're all facing and I wanna I talk about that. Maybe people who are unemployed or ten ninety nine workforce the anxiety that you're experiencing. You should know that we have not yet received the guidance from the federal government. About how a ten ninety nine or independently employed people are supposed to go about applying for benefits. But that hasn't stopped us. We're director Kim Hall. From ody. J F S. We have already engaged the private sector some tech companies that we have built relationships through innovative. Ohio team to engage in building getting preparing to build that system. So that you can get access to those resources as soon as possible that is underway. You should know just like we're building out that the hospital system we're trying to build the Texas to allow you to get access to these services for those of you who are under the traditional unemployment system. We know that because of the volume and hasn't gone as fast as some of you had wished and I had wished frankly any of us want you to know you're not going to miss the opportunity to apply. If there's a if you're worried about that no that it will be back dated and it will be backdated to the point that you're eligible. You will get your benefits. Just know that that that the service is there for you and we will make sure that you get served a lot of times. You're getting messages about having to meet those deadlines you do not have to meet them. Apply when you can get into the system. I've been informed today that it's it's running pretty efficiently although we know that depending on where you live and what your Internet service the Internet service quality you have maybe your home you'll get a little bit different experience and also some of you. After you apply you may see that. There's a you'll get a banner message that says you have to apply for work to maintain these benefits. You do not need to do that. Those waivers have already been granted to US. And you may also talk to the tech people about this. You may see a The spinning circle that that shows that it's processing. Please resist the temptation to keep clicking to reenter because I in a tech in a tech cents. You're sending yourself back to the end of the line when you do that. And so don't do that overloads the system in a probably be slower for you when you go about that. Businesses for small businesses Senator Portman outlined. What the federal government is doing. We will post all of that in the access to that. As soon as it's made available from us from the Federal Government at Corona Virus Dot Ohio Dot Gov forward slash business. Help The federal package as soon as that is available and that those details available we will we will get it placed there but we also know this that that federal assistance for businesses probably won't be enough for some of you There are still just elements of what? The business world is liked during a terrible catastrophe. Like the one we're experiencing that still need to be figured out. We know we know that through the Federal Housing Financing Authority. That we have set up there a sixty day. I'm more on foreclosures and a twelve months forbearance but we also have a commercial real estate issues. I was talking this morning with a bank. Ceo Many of the banks in the state have already taken these steps to avoid those problems. What they have done. And we're encouraging people to do this. All across the commercial ending world. They've extended a ninety day. Forebearance actually deferral is a better way to describe it and then added that on to the end of the particular loan agreement many banks Ohio have done this and that includes principal an interest at that and that will help. Businesses maintain their cash flow. So if everybody does this if banks and loan servicers put that ninety day deferral out there what will happen is then the commercial lead the commercial realtors real estate operations. Then don't feel the pressure to have to pay the banks. Then they can extend that grace to the businesses who are who are leaseholders or who have obligations to them and that through the system will maintain cash-flow for everybody so that not only they can keep their employees on the payroll but also they'll be able to come out of this because they're gonNA need cash to come out of this at the end. Everybody through that system does it. We will come out of this much better than we would. Otherwise Governor Dewine and I were talking about this this morning. We believe that the private sector can best handle this. Most of them are doing it. We encourage all of them to do it. Because that will get worked out much better than if we have to pass some sort of government mandate to do it which we're willing to consider all of us will be better if we come out of this collaboratively. I also want to remind folks that the bill that the governor just signed establishes a vote. Count Day for April the twenty eight and so if you would like to cast an absentee ballot you can do that. Vote Ohio Dot Gov. You can request an absentee ballot. Vote Ohio Dot Gov if you do not have the capacity to print that out or or get an absentee ballot application. You can call your local board of elections and get that so that you're able to vote also while you're at it remember we have a census you can fill out your census. Ohio's going to need everybody to do that. That's important for our state governor. And I have also had in the last twenty four hours some great conversations with the county commissioners we have ongoing conversations with the mayors and police chiefs. We thank you for all of what you're doing. I got A. I got a message today. A couple of messages from Mir Walian Dayton and and and Mayor Ginther of Columbus They are working to enforce the stay at home order in common sense way to make sure that businesses are doing what they need to do to keep a sanitary workplace for the for their employees there out there enforcing it.

"Public Health is building on yesterday's quarters of the state to use all the resources available to us to limit the spread of this highly infectious disease to that in Columbus public. Health will convene an emergency meeting today at two PM. The Board of Health will convene an emergency meeting at two PM to vote on declaring a local public health. Emergency this declaration is important because it will give us additional safety measures now before we need them as the mayor said it is not a matter of if but when I as health commissioner I can quarantine and isolate individuals including city employees if necessary most people who work with us when we asked them to be quarantine or isolated but sometimes we run into difficult situations where people are resistant but if needed in the event that someone is not cooperative. This order allows us to take additional steps as a city to quarantine and isolate individuals as a last resort and I must say as a last resort it could also include placing police officer outside the door to ensure that the person complies with our orders. Second the local public health emergency mandates testing and treatment to ensure people are getting appropriate care. This could include ordering medical examinations and treatment and quarantine individuals who refuse exams. Also it will allow us to control and limit ingress and Egress to and from public areas including determining the routes modes of transportation and destinations to evacuate people or provide emergency services. This third provision is especially important to prevent a hotspot of disease and building a facility or neighborhoods to prevent spreading beyond that specific location. There is no better example of that right now than what we're seeing in new. Rochelle New York a suburb of New York City where there is a one mile corona virus containment zone following an outbreak of dozens of cases related to a house of worship. Large gatherings in the area are prohibited. Schools Houses of worship and other buildings will be closed for two weeks to promote social distancing and allow for deep cleaning. That's in new Rochelle. New York back containment zone is designed in necessary to slow the progression of this disease. While we don't need these emergency powers now it is important to have them in place before we do need them. This is part of our community planning and preparation for this epidemic which is now our worldwide pandemic. We have said all along that it's not a matter of if but when we get a case here in Columbus or Worthington which Columbus public health also covers their public health services. We're preparing for the worst.

If you receive a call like this hang up do not provide them with any form of payment or information report the call at Oh. I died as essay dot Gov Mark News. Welcome back to Columbus concerns public affairs presentation of North American Broadcasting while the cove in nineteen viruses affecting the economy. As we've seen a Wall Street this week it's also affecting the price of the pump. Kimberly SCHWINN OUR FRIEND FROM TRIPLE A. Is here to tell us a little bit about gasoline. Prices motorist probably noticed gas prices falling around the state. This is mainly tied to the corona virus and fears that the corona virus will continue to reduce global economic growth and global demand for crude oil. Ohio's average today's two dollars and twenty four cents a gallon a week ago. It was at two dollars and forty cents a gallon. So we've seen gas prices across Ohio fall by sixteen cents in one week. Many stations across the state or now setting below two dollars a gallon nationally. We're seeing an average today of two dollars and forty two cents a gallon a year ago. It was at two forty three so only one sense different but the price has fallen nationally on average about five cents in the past week so we are seeing prices falling across the country. This is largely tied to demand destruction and fears of further demand. Destruction caused by the corona virus. Ah last week. Crude oil futures lost more than sixteen percent according to opus. This is the largest decline in more than eleven years. Last week ended with crude oil prices at their lowest levels since December of two thousand and eighteen since gas prices are largely tied to the crude oil prices. We've also been seeing races falling at the pump. Own Markets and crude oil prices have advanced slightly in the last couple of days. It's really difficult to say if they're going to continue to advance or fall back again. Some of the recent optimism in the market has really been tied to other fact that OPEC allies are going to be meeting later this week. And there's been talk of cutting crude oil production globally to help to rebalance the market and raise the crude oil prices. They're taking some of that excess crude out of the market To help to raise the prices in addition there's been notes that central banks have suggested that they're going to hope countries dealing with the economic impact of cove in nineteen so this is also helped to give the market a little bit of optimism and see a little bit of an increase this week so very difficult to tell how long this is going to continue or if it's going to continue we'll know more later this week when OPEC and its allies meet. Another factor to consider is that we are just a couple of weeks away from The spring refinery maintenance season so in the middle of March we typically will see refineries changeover from the winter blend of gasoline to the summer blend of gasoline which is a little bit more expensive to make During that time refineries will often undergo spring maintenance. Which can cause some refineries to be off line or possibly have some issues when they're starting back up a lot of times. We will see price bikes related to the changeover from the winter blend of gasoline to the summer blend of gasoline and also that refinery maintenance in addition as we get closer to the summer driving season we typically see prices hitting their highest points of the year in May or June Just as we enter into the peak of the summer driving season. So it's going to be very interesting to see whether that happens or not this year because the corona virus is really driving the global economy and the gas prices right now. So it's all going to depend on how it plays out And how long? It continues to impact the global economy. And that's the latest on gasoline prices from Kimberly Schwinn from AAA OHIO. And she talks about the lower prices because of the corona virus most of the deaths that have occurred in the US have been centered at a nursing. Home in the Seattle area correspond trace. Gallagher tells us about some new action that they're taking in King County Washington Seattle's King County is trying a novel approach by purchasing an econolodge and several trailers to house corona virus patients which is not going over well with neighbors right across the street. This is close to home so I have a concern about it. There are also a heart rending. Quarantine stories like the viral picture of the elderly couple married for sixty years now separated because of quarantine or the Alabama church members who went to Israel to visit the holy sites and unfortunately stayed in Bethlehem hotel. Where a previous guests tested positive for corona virus and president trump went to the CDC on Friday more from Jessica Rosenthal when president trump went to the CDC Friday. He and officials were peppered with questions including testing for covert. Nineteen has been so slow shortly after redistributed. The first bachelor tests to some of the state health labs that there was an issue with one component of the test so we quickly put together a team to try to figure out what that issue was and we suggested that people not test until we can sort that out. Cdc Dr Steven Munro said they test for three signatures and identified that two of those were sufficient for a positive test health and Human Services Secretary Alex as our said local labs were being validated to have their own testing so by the end of next week he said the US should have four million tests.

"This is Columbus concerns a public affairs presentation of North American Broadcasting. Here's your host Mark News at. Thanks so much for joining us this morning. Of course everyone is talking about Kovic. Nineteen or the corona virus. We still haven't had any cases reported here in Ohio no confirmed cases as of today however we have had confirmed cases as close as Kentucky and Indiana as the virus continues to spread across the US. Well this week Dr Amy Acton. The head of the Ohio Department of Health was a guest on our low power and Randy morning show on ninety nine seven the blitz here in Columbus and she gave some good advice on Kovic. Nineteen Dr Acton. Thanks so much for spending some time here on the show with us and taking a second how you done this morning good. It's good to be here this morning. Thank you as someone who's really into fitness and health and wellness. I was a little bit you know. Obviously it was a gut blow yesterday as we saw you and Mike. Dewine talking about The spectator aspect of the Arnold being canceled. What exactly went into that in the thought behind it. Well I can tell you know that. That was a very big decision. One that took a lot of thought and I have to really commend first of all the governor. The mayor and the organizers Anybody saw Arnold Schwarzenegger himself spoke This is a hard decision. But as you know they're taking preventative measure It is an unusual and unique situation that many athletes from over eighty countries. There are over twenty thousand athletes. Twenty five two hundred fifty thousand spectators. So you know it is. It is something that the. Cdc came out with new guidance and it has to do with. You know the local capacity to put preventive measures in place. And I can tell you. Columbus public health is one of the best health department in this country and they feel they can do a very very good job protecting the athlete but This is a preventative measure to stop the spread of disease talking about the spread of the disease. Are there any other events that are coming up in the near future that will be cancelled? That are large gatherings Games Blue Jackets Games breasts. The Crew Yeah. I think at this point you know. I think we're GONNA see evolving cancellations around the world you're seeing just to you. Know just athletes without spectator. Large conferences businesses. Not Sending in workers and again. This is something that can help. Slow US passing very catchy infectious disease to each other and I suspect we'll see more of it at this point. You know something like a two hour your kids back while game or something like that is still something where you can take precautions. Wash your hands. Avoid being very close to someone. Who's crossing our sneezing. But when you're talking something. So big as a arnold where people are there for days and very close quarter. That's different but I think you'll see this evolving thoughtfulness as as we see community spread Here soon I'm sure we'll see it in. Ohio is seeing it around the country so in New York City they are already disinfecting the public transit. Are we going to be doing things like that with the code buses and stuff like that? Yes absolutely you know. There's so much that goes on behind the scenes in has been going on for weeks and we work with businesses and hospitals and schools. Getting them tips on how to get ready. How to do cleaning and I WANNA say to people at home regular cleaners work so they can be doing that as well. Okay and so. Let's just go through it step by step so if people are listening to this for the first time how is the best way that people here in Columbus Ohio can protect ourselves against the Cova? Nineteen buyers want folks to take it seriously but not be afraid. This violence is a lot like the flu in. I don't think people take the fluid seriously. They started. We actually have a vaccine for that and people should get that vaccine if they haven't yet but it is like a bad flu experience factious people who are outerly immuno-compromised healthcare workers are little more susceptible to it than the average person. It looks a lot like server. Coughing potentially difficulty breathing but for most people. Most people will get it stay home. Stay home if you're sick and and they'll get through it Some folks that will need to be hospitalized. What you can do. We recommend recommendations. I would make right now. Are you know stock up in case you have to stay home from work On some food for about two weeks. Have your medicine supply of your regular medicine for thirty days. Think things like cold medicines and things. So if you're staying home you don't have to go out to the drugstore and potentially exposed more people think about your elderly parents think about neighbors who alone and don't have how as much as people are afraid. This is a time we can also help each other and that is a message. I really want to get out there. We have more checks On our website Corona Virus Dot Ohio Dot. Gov Washing your hands as boring as that sounds can stop the spread back fifty percent laughing all things. It's boring the coughing and your sleeve. The things were saying actually worked the proven to work so And then just kicking some distance if somebody is coughing sneezing around with lots of tips on how you can prepare the mostly. How can we help each other? Because a lot of people will be more you'll be told to stay at home and rasp potentially if you have the disease for up to fourteen days At this point I'm dreaming of a Quarantine. Wasn't that flex but you know so you know retired. Try to see the positive side of things and and but that's what it will look like for. Most people be like a foolish deadly thirty. Five thousand people died in this country last year from flu and we've had a third A child die in Ohio from the flu. So it is polluted colts in all of these things. Work On all of these diseases so I'm kind of nervous because all the reports I'm reading it attacks the lungs that's what it wants wants to attack the lungs and so it wasn't necessarily do that right. It does the flu actually a lot of times when hostile. I will be for things like pneumonia so it does go to the lungs and difficulty breathing. Assign to look for when you know. That will be a sign that your your disease is worth name should definitely be talking to your healthcare provider. I have asthma so it gives me anxiety. I'm like I can't even I don't want to catch it all because I already have terrible. Longs until you know definitely talked your healthcare provider on that do all these preventive measures. That really will help and again. The flu could do this to you too. If you haven't had a vaccine go get that because again the hardest thing about this new diseases. It'll be a while before we have a vaccine and we're not immune to it so so again you know. I want people to take the right precautions. Corona Virus Dot Ohio Dot Gov and then but but those things will help and and you know your doctor and provider will be there with you to walk through it as our local health departments. The great resources of information on the. I'm so sorry I had to let people know that. Amy Acting is on the phone with us right now. The director of the Ohio Department of Health. So I wake up this morning. And we have one strain of corona virus and now reading reports that there are two strains of corona virus in her spreading around the world. Seventy percent of infected patients have caught the more aggressive contagious. And so maybe that's why people were getting it again. Rumor Kelly. We were reading reports that once a had the coronavirus it was all said and done. They caught it again. Like both the strains here in the United States so there's a whole family of corona viruses. Some of them caused the common cold. And I think that's where that misunderstanding could be coming from. There's a technical corona virus that is a common cold this new type. The Beta class is zoonotic disease. Meaning that from animal to human. And that's what happened in China that happens occasionally with fires as we probably give them to our pets too and talks about that but this virus is a particular strain that again is particularly infectious and and does have you know that Fatality rate of up to three percent again. Our knowledge of it is evolving daily. So you know that's why I know. It's confusing the people that adds to fear because we learn a little bit more every day. That's quite so important to go to good trusted. Sources of information I think that that that people probably aren't being reinfected with it. Actually I think the testing or Swat not being done right or it's not. There's more to that CA. I I think we'll learn more about that. I'm thinking people had it all along. Not Being reinfected in your opinion. How far out is some sort of vaccine? Well you know I don't feel slow but it's actually with each one of these like the viruses that we go through like this eve outbreaks things get faster and faster. It's practically a miracle that they are going to be testing and less than three months. I talked. Science has evolving on this. That we can even test for it will be passing here in Ohio. That is a miracle but the actual vaccine is about a year to year and a half away. There is some hope there are some anti viral sort of like Tamiflu is if you already have the flu. There are some that are already on the market that are being tested against this virus will know in about forty forty five days if it's effective and that would be a great boon to us in this fight against this virus and there's the latest on. Cova nineteen from the head of the Department of Health. Dr Amy Acton who appeared this morning on our ninety nine seven the blitz radio station here in Columbus.

Afteh only affects about ninety percent. They're still ten percent of our population. That don't have anything that can help them and that's where we are still pushing instill fighting and still fundraising to make sure that those patients get the medicine that they need to be better. So that's where all the money goes it's going to. S- to help those families into eventually make cf Stanford cure found Jennifer. Tell us a little bit about For those who don't know. What exactly is cystic fibrosis? And how many people does it impact? Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease. That affects our patient's lungs.
"columbus" Discussed on Columbus Concerns
"Again. You're listening to columbus. Concerns earns a public affairs presentation of north american broadcasting recently following the mass shooting in dayton governor dewine set forth some new proposals for background ground checks here in central ohio on gun sales. He talked about that in a recent press conference two days after the tragedy in dayton. We announced a seventeen point plan that we're calling strong ohio today lieutenant governor john houston. I are now seeing another piece of this plan. Criminal history information submitted to a house law enforcement automated automated system called leads and the national crime information center called. NCA is dangerously deficient. I was attorney general. I found that so far ohio courts were failing to follow the law requiring them to send dispositions and mental health adjudications to see i for entry into these law enforcement databases now. Let me just mention. One of the challenges says that they're fourteen thousand alshon shooting fourteen hundred entry points around the state we then immediately began working being with the noncompliant courts to get this critical information into these systems when critical information is missing bad things happen for example law enforcement could encounter subject suspect with a violent criminal history and not knowing school could unknowingly higher teacher with a criminal record and not knowing war federally licensed firearms. You're you're could unknowingly celadon someone with a disqualifying conviction because that conviction simply did not show up in the background ground chip law enforcement counter subject with violet criminal history and have no oh idea for example could pull over someone on the highway. The data was not in database when they walk officer walks up in that car officer would have no idea this could be a dangerous individual. This is what happened in texas in two two thousand seventeen. A man's disqualifying domestic violence conviction was not entered is background. Check came back clean. He he purchased a gun and then walk into a church and killed twenty six people that gun sale could have been prevented had the right information ben in his background. Check the submission of dispositions mental health. Judy -cations buy a house courts improve got better when i was attorney attorney general but they're not where they should be and now governor. I'm in a position where we can do a lot more examinations by uh-huh hios two hundred and eighteen national instant criminal background check system or and see ass necks that complies implies working group that was put together originally under governor casey as well as a mile high warrant task force both groups found that there are other serious flaws in the way ohio shears criminal justice information and that these must be addressed. Now's the time for us to and that's what i intend to do today. I'm announcing that as part of our forthcoming forthcoming strong ohio legislation that we are recommending to the general assembly we'll be taking action to enhance the state and federal background check systems unlikely requirement for the entry of dispositions and mental health adjudications into leads an NCI see there is currently amazingly. There's currently no lawn ohio requiring the entry of warrants for violent crimes and protection orders into the system say it again no longer require the entry of warrants for violent crimes and the protect nor for protection orders rush into this system makes absolutely no sense this again our law enforcement officers at risk each day it puts our citizens at risk and increases the chance of someone who shouldn't by gun will walk into a store and be able to buy one domestic violence and sexual assault into leads. NCCIC within forty eight hours of issuance. I think the average citizen ohio today would assume that that are already is required under ohio law this tier one warrant offense list was developed this year by members of mile warrant task ask for it was one of their recommendations. I formed this task force shortly after taking office to study the issue of unserved warrants in the state and again. I think these facts will shock. The average ohioan are working group estimated that they're at a bare minimum one half million when half a million five hundred thousand open warrants today in the state of ohio yet. Only two hundred seventeen thousand of those were entered into the state leads system in a vote. Those only eighteen thousand one hundred seventeen were entered into the federal system. What will happen what can happen is obvious us for this large number of these individuals. If someone is outside their county law enforcement. We'll have no idea when they run them that there's an outstanding warrant for their arrest and if someone leaves the state of ohio only a small portion of this half a million will show up in in any kind of shirts that has done by law enforcement only a little over eighteen thousand means that law enforcement officers one jurisdiction could pull over a wanted violent offender from another jurisdiction and have i've no idea that they were dangerous or there was an outstanding warrant for their arrest this is clearly safety issue for law enforcement and it's a safety the issue for the public and CIC is also one of the tools that the FBI uses when conducting point of sale background checks federally relicensing firearm dealers through nex. I think this shows why another reason why so important this information nations entered into both the federal and to the state systems as identified by the two thousand eighteen knicks working group point appointed by governor kasich warrant and protection orders must be entered into the state and national systems to improve the completeness of nex otherwise the next background checks of those prohibited from purchasing a firearm will come back clean. They will be inaccurate. Responsible gun shop owners do not want to sell a gun to someone who should not have one so when a dealer calls next for background shop they depend on that information and public depends on that information to be accurate and complete and one is not the system is failing ailing these business owners and certainly failing the public as well. We must act now to fix this problem mandating the entry of these wars and mandating the protection orders they must be report poured into leads an MCSE will certainly make more work for law enforcement and for the courts well. Let me be clear many agencies already doing this on their own the many or not today the process to enter this information takes time and it's cumbersome. The cost of implementation is often paid by the local government in fact it usually is both working groups. Both working groups that i've referenced also recommend a statewide system to make this process easier and more uniformly could be adopted. We have an obligation to make this easy simple for local government local little officials to do. We have an obligation for the stave to pay for this time to act is now. We must work to make this system work better. I've asked lieutenant governor houston who is the director of innovative ohio to be in work on creating rating technological solution he and innovate ohio involve program to make it easier and less time consuming to get warren protection or information mation where it needs to go and that's governor wind talking about his proposals to increase background checks for gun sales.

"columbus" Discussed on Columbus Concerns
"And prevention on vaping products as dr brian king from c._d._c.'s d._c. office on smoking and health. Thank you for joining us brian. Thanks so much for having me. It's a pleasure to be here. Our topic today is e cigarettes <hes>. Can you tell us why they're considered a tobacco baco product yeah so in the united states <hes> we we regulate tobacco products through the u._s. Food and drug administration and the way they describe it. Tobacco product is <hes> any the <hes> product that's made or derived from tobacco and we know that the vast majority of nicotine <hes> that's used in tobacco products including cigarettes is indeed derived from tobacco and so since these products contain nicotine consider them tobacco products in the united states and e cigarettes are a little bit different than regular cigarettes. Can you describe how they work. Yeah yeah so e cigarettes is short for electronic cigarettes <hes> but we know him by a lot of different names <hes> and they can be called things like vapor products hookah pens <hes> a vape pens <hes> but the bottom line is they're all really the same product and they work by containing a liquid. That's heated which the user then inhales into their lungs and it's important to note that this isn't ed technically a vapor which is how people refer to it. It's actually an aerosol that contain small particle as well as as various other ingredients that the user inhales and so there's no combustion. That's junior not burning anything <hes> but there is a heating of liquid which turns into an aerosol which the user inhales and also exhale into the air <hes> as other bystanders enters around them and the soul is not just water vapor. I mean that's an important part to understand <hes> because i get asked as a physician <hes> about e cigarettes and the thing from the session that i found very interesting was the idea that we're not really certain about the risks that flavorings add to ooh cigarettes <hes> the one that was mentioned was <hes> the butter flavoring di di acetyl that has been associated with <hes> bronchiolitis obliterate. What's called popcorn long <hes> which is a deadly disease. I what what more do we know about the risks of <hes> east cigarettes so our knowledge about what's contained in both the easter look it as well as well as the aerosol has continued to evolve over time <hes> these products <hes> us entered the united states marketplace and around two thousand seven. I mean they didn't start really uptick and used until two thousand ten two thousand eleven but since that time we've really increase the the amount of research into what these products contain and what we can say is that the aerosol emitted by these products is not a harmless <hes> we do know that the ingredients in the levels are significantly less dangerous than conventional cigarettes but that doesn't mean that they're completely risk free and so some of the ingredients we've found in the e cigarette aerosol or things like ultra fine fine particulate that can be inhaled very deep into the lungs and also heavy metals that are found in the filaments of the device in our admitted in the era saul as well as things like volatile organic compounds <hes> but one of the most common ingredients is nicotine <hes> and we know that nicotine is highly addictive <hes> but there's also evidence indicating that it can harm the developing adolescent brain which really makes it important for for us to avoid these devices in addition to some of these other harmful ingredients we also know the flavorings and so just one <hes> but there are a variety variety of different flavorings that are used that although they may be safe to ingest in things like food. We don't know what the risks are for or inhaling these devices into the lungs. Your gut can handle a lot more in your lungs and that's really important when we look at the ingredients in these products and finally it's also important remember that people are using a lot of things than cigarettes and that includes other psychoactive substances like marijuana and t._h._c. and others and so when we're talking about youth in particular the use of both the nicotine containing varieties as well as other varieties for other types of drugs are really a public health concern okay but we have had some recent good news about the youth meaning middle school and high school use of e cigarettes can. Can you tell me about that. Yes it's really a commendable public health accomplishment <hes> we started assessing easter use among youth in this country two thousand eleven <hes> and through two thousand fifteen gene besides exponential increases in the use of this product in two thousand sixteen was the first time that we actually saw decline among youth in this country and that was really a a result of the coordinate efforts to not only educate the public about the harms of of youth e cigarette use but also implementing commonsense strategies to not only prevent youth access but also to protect the people from the aerosol in public environments <hes> and various other campaigns to educate people about these products but unbalanced the bad news is that we still have over two million youth that that are using e cigarettes and they're now the most commonly used tobacco product used among u._s. Youth so we've made great progress but we really need to continue that momentum to reduce all forms of tobacco product used among youth so it's going down <hes> but not as low much as we'd like so what's driving the use of the e cigarettes gretz in teens so there's a variety of factors <hes> that we believe are contributing to these increase rates of use of among youth that we saw through two thousand fifteen eighteen <hes> one of the most notable as the advertising for these products we know that that many of the themes and tactics that have been used to advertise conventional cigarettes <hes> are frequently used <hes> for e cigarettes and we also know that there's some media <hes> for which a conventional cigarette ad <hes> advertising is banned that is allowed free cigarettes things like television and so there's there's really a prominent <hes> advertising of these products and we know that it's reaching kids in particular about eighteen million u._s. Youth reported being exposed to e cigarette ads in two thousand thousand fourteen. <hes> another factor is flavorings and we know from the existing science that flavorings can be particularly appealing in terms of enticing youth and young adults to use tobacco products and a variety of e cigarettes are flavored and do we know from the existing data that about two-thirds of youth who use e cigarettes report using flavored varieties and flavors of the most commonly cited reason for why youth started using these products and so in the end. We really have a situation where <hes> you know the <hes>. The advertising is bringing the the horse to water the flavorings are getting them to drink and then the nicotine is coming the keeping them coming back for more and so it's kind of a perfect storm in in terms of of the youth rates of this but the good news is we know what works to prevent that and if we implement those common sense public health strategies we can continue to see the declines that we saw within the past last year among our nation's youth and the real concern is about nicotine and the teenage brain. Can you just briefly tell me a little bit more about that. Yes so <hes> nicotine katina's found in the vast majority of e cigarettes that are sold on the u._s. market and <hes> you know nicotine we we use and things like nicotine replacement therapy <hes> among adults adults and it can be an effective drug to help people quit conventional cigarette smoking but so important to note that those are in very measured doses and and the wayne's the the individual off of conventional cigarettes over time <hes> but nicotine is not necessarily risk-free <hes> particularly for vulnerable populations <hes> we know that nicotine is is highly addictive <hes> but there's also growing body of scientific evidence that was outlined in a recent surge channels report noting that that nicotine exposure can harm the developing adolescent brain um and we know that the brain continues to develop into young adulthood of through twenty five or twenty six and so there's really implications for not only youth use of these products but also young adult use use of any nicotine containing product yeah and another thing to remember what nicotine is it's also been shown to result in adverse health outcomes among pregnant women and particularly feel toxicity ecstasy so there's also implications about pregnant women using any form of nicotine containing product and so it's really important for them to talk with their physician <hes> before they use <hes> any type of nicotine containing product including e cigarettes so is there a place that physicians could go to learn a little bit more about these parts with the e cigarettes and the nicotine so there's many resources that have been developed over the past few years particularly as the science has begun to grow and we have more concrete evidence about about what works effectively of lead to help <hes> warn people about these products and also provide them scientific based information to make informed decisions <hes> in two thousand sixteen the u._s. surgeon general released <hes> landmark report on e cigarette use among youth and young adults and as part of the release of that report there were several <hes> materials <hes> including resources and a provider cards <hes> to help health professionals are really communicate <hes> to <hes> they're <hes> both children adults about these products and so in the context of youth it really enforces the importance of warning them about the dangers of these products <hes> particularly with regard to the nicotine content and among adults. It's a more nuanced conversation about knowing that we do do have f._d._a. Approved medications to help people quit and those should really be the first line of defense to help you quit and if that doesn't work you can consider e cigarettes but in consultation with with your healthcare provider and right now based on the evidence we have. There's no conclusive evidence that he's cigarettes are effective for long-term cessation and so it's really important to use those resources is that we know our most effective to help you quit in in coordination with your healthcare provider and then for youth where if parents are other adults wanted to know more about how they could talk to ooh teens and young adults about the risks of e cigarettes where where would they find some information about that so is part of the release of the surgeon general support. There's an excellent interactive active website <hes> that was a coordinated with the release of that report and it is <hes> he dashed cigarettes dot surgeon general dot gov and it has a variety of information mation on both the report itself as well as a public service announcement as well as informational cards for both parents and clinicians to educate <hes> youth and young adults in particular about the dangers and risks of using these products.

"columbus" Discussed on Columbus Concerns
"And welcome back to columbus concerns. I'm mark news <music> glad you joined us this morning. We're going to talk now about downsizing. We're happy to have with us kathy cairo and she is with downsized columbus kathy. Thanks thanks for stopping by good morning. Mark and good morning to your to your listeners. <hes> you have been on the show before we got a big response to <hes> your last appearance on the show. Lots of people had lots. It's a questions and they were calling up saying what was that again about downsize columbus first of all tell us what is downsized columbus mark first of all. I'm a realtor with keller williams the greater columbus and that was sort of the impetus for downsized columbus. I'm the daughter of a teacher so education and communication are in my blood. What and that's how i built. My real estate. Business was doing seminars for years. I did home buyer and seller seminars coming out of two thousand twelve. Our listeners will remember. We were at the tail end of a recession and i was sitting with a colleague and i said you know what i bet. There's a lot of people that need to downsize is and they've held off doing it because house values here in central ohio were not doing well but the market's coming back and i bet we have that group of people who would like liked to downsize an honestly mark in my head i was thinking twenty people in a librarian talked to them about selling selling a home so so we kind of started <hes> literally on a napkin it pinera and said why don't we do a seminar just for downsizers and let's call it downsize columbus and in addition to talking about the sale of your <hes> your home. Let's bring a few people in who assist in that decision and we thought well we could get an auction ear and the people who helped moving and organizing so that was in two thousand thirteen and <hes> speaking to the power of radio i invested in radio uh-huh advertising and i just you know rounded up some vendors and sponsors and i would have been thrilled. Twenty people came we started running those ads ads and we were doing it at that point at the dublin community center which seats two hundred people max and within eight days we had filled up two hundred seats and <music> so we had a new problem so we very quickly put another one on the calendar filled that one up and very quickly put another one on the calendar. We were exhausted but we thought there's there's a there's a niche ear and there is absolutely a need here with people who need to downsize and one answer so we created downsized downsize columbus seminar for that and before we go any further i'm i'm sure you have a website where people can get more information eps very simple downsized columbus dot com so who are the downsizers. Oh gosh they are first of all. They're a great group. I am one and i have downsized twice so i feel all the pain. Downsizers are really honestly they start in their forties these days because what we have is forty that generation of the forty year olds are often taking taking care of their parents and they are kind of guiding their parents through this and then we have all that we have people come all the way into their eighties who are finally the at the point where they're saying yes i don't wanna mow the lawn and other spring and they come so really it is a wide range age range but really we look at stage of life and so we the seminar now has grown mark. We now have nine speakers. We have almost forty vendors unders all of whom have resources that serve this group and so there's really a little bit for everybody depending on where you are in the stage of your downsize well for years. Everybody talked about how the population would be aging that the baby boomers. He started to retire and now we're getting to the point where the last of the baby boomers are really getting into that age now. So what are some of the challenges. Oh gosh people face when they go to say to themselves. I'd like to get rid of this big. The house and i'd like to move into a smaller place it mark that's a great question and to your point nine thousand americans a day are turning fifty five and that will be the case until about twenty twenty one is where we we see that slow down a little bit but you have a myriad of challenges is with this move now. I'm a realtor in ideal with first time home buyers who are twenty five all the way up to downsizing the downsize decision is unique peak in a lot of ways number one. It's often a decision that is not made fully voluntarily and what i mean by that is if i'm in my thirties and i have have another child. I'm moving voluntarily. I want a bigger home. I want a better school system. It is usually not without stress but it's a good thing. Everybody's he's excited. We're moving up. Were getting better. We're getting bigger. Were doing those things that downsized decision is a psychological as well as is residential statement and what it saying is all those years or behind me and now often it is the kids saying mom and dad. You really need to move. I'm gonna i'm afraid you're gonna fall down the steps. It's the doctor saying you really can't take care of that lawn anymore. It is the attorney saying saying. I don't want this to be a crisis decision. If one of you falls down the stairs so it is often it is often a decision that is preceded by other other saying you need to do this and sometimes it's the spouse. It's the spell saying honey we need to do this. I just yesterday got a discreet excrete phone call from a wife saying we need someone to mow our lawn. We need someone to help clean the house. I even need someone with basic housekeeping duties but when they call tell them to ask for me because my husband will say we don't need all that and so it is a tough decision to make to say we can't can't handle this and we do need a smaller space and and we do have to recognize that we are on the tail end perhaps of those twenty years of our life and for obvious reasons. That's not an easy decision to make ya but then you look around and say i've accumulated forty years worth they do now. Oh god sometimes sometimes you literally paralyzed when you look around and say. I don't even know where to start. You know what mark okay call it functional <hes> functional hoarding and and unlike many of us have seen the television show of clinical hoarding and we do have a lot of that in in ohio we have a lot of people who are emotionally connected to their stuff and that's a whole 'nother show but i call it functional hoarding and that is just forty years of life life. That's forty years of christmas and forty years of birthdays and forty years of grandkids and forty years of kids stuff that you're sure they're going to come back to get and of course they're not hot and so your word is absolutely correct. I call it paralysed or frozen overwhelmed in every room by saying being. I know i need to do this. I know i need to clean out the basement. I know i need to start on the garage but i call it. The tara syndrome like scarlett o'hara <hes> you put your head in the sand and say i'll think about this tomorrow and and and the real and what i try to get across to my attendees at downsize columbus is what what you do when you leave this earth you want to leave your children with great memories and affectionate love for you and a time to grieve you do not want to leave them with a house to clean out of your stuff because you never got around to it so we recommend recommend earlier's better say start that clearing in the when you're in your fifties because there will come a point as you have noted in fact act i usually say when people come to downsize columbus from in between age forty five and seventy. They're still at the age where they can physically basically emotionally and mentally do a lot of this. You start getting into those upper years and you physically can't do it anymore. And that's what you don't want to do you do not. I don't want to leave this for strangers. The state or your children to have to clear out and the the cool reality is your kids. Don't want your save. Don't want your stuff and and that is said with great love but it's an entirely different generation. It's an entirely different culture and that gorgeous or just <hes> <hes> henry don dining room set you you pay twelve thousand dollars for which you scrimped and saved for and you're sure one of the kids want on it. They remember it fondly because of the memories on that dining room table but they don't even have a dining room and so they don't want it and china is a country in east asia. They don't want your china. You know so so again. <hes> you know you just have to start making those decisions because there is not a quick and and easy source to get rid of all that stuff and we'd like to thank kathy cairo for being our guest..
"columbus" Discussed on Columbus Concerns
"This is columbus concerns a public affairs presentation of north american broadcasting. Here's your host. I mark news and thanks so much for joining us this morning. On columbus concerns. We're going to start off talking about sending your kids back to college with the insurance orange that they need especially on their automobile and with this is our friend kimberly schwinn from triple a. ohio now that the calendar has turned to august. It's it's time for college students to be getting ready to head back to campus as college students get ready to pack their cars full of clothes books and electronics onyx triple a. recommends that these students and their families also take time to review their insurance policies and make sure that their belongings are protected said the risk of thieves and fires and other mishaps on college campuses are very real and so it's very important whether you're living in a dorm arm or off campus to make sure that you and your belongings are protected. Students living in dorms are typically covered under their parents homeowners. There's a renter's insurance policies. Most of their personal possessions are covered but maybe not all so expensive items like computers and other electronics might might be subject to coverage limits so it's really important that families with kids going away to college check with their insurance agent to determine if they need additional or separate coverage for their student living in a dorm students living in off campus housing will no longer be covered by their parents policies policies. These students going to need separate renter's insurance policies to cover their belongings. It's also important to get these policies because it will protect these students and their families from liability. If someone is injured on the property many students will be taking a car.
