What Made Zayn Malik Shove Yolanda Hadid Into a Dresser?
"So Zayn Malik has pleaded no contest to harassing Gigi Hadid and no, I'm not arresting her. Harassing her mom, Yolanda Hadid. They had a big argument last month, apparently. Now him is easier done right now. But this happened when they were not done. So he's been charged with four counts of harassment for allegedly calling. Now this is the greatest line every called Yolanda, the one of the original, I don't know if she was original, but one of The Real Housewives, he called her a Dutch slut, I never heard it before. I think it's genius. A Dutch slut, he screamed about his sperm and apparently he pushed her into a dresser during an altercation. Now, here's the story. He was at home. He lives in Pennsylvania, so does Gigi so does Yolanda and so does the sister Bella? Do you know they all live in the same compound like the same like cul de sac or the same general area, they're all near each other. It's very strange. And I don't know why Pennsylvania. I know this land out there, but that's a little pencil. Pennsylvania is the endless state. You could pick a better state to live than pencil fucking Vania. Oh God, at least the clock. When we drove through what we called schitt's, we had friends relatives lived there. I got a summer house and we'd say, let's go to shed Slovenia. I don't want to go shit silvania. Beautiful homes, beautiful property, but not a good ride. So apparently he's home with the baby. And Yolanda walks into the house. Does it not just walks in? And of course, she must have said something to him, and he went ballistic called her a Dutch a Dutch slot. He said, stay away from my fucking daughter. He also mentioned, now this is a bit crazy. I apologize. He said the fucking sperm that came out of this fucking okay, you know what I'm gonna say. He was very, very protective of his daughter. And apparently he grabbed and shoved her into a dresser and that of course called her caused her mental anguish and physical pain. She's a housewife, so it's gotta cause her

"Pain was pay now for three years. You have or three now three. I wish i could have done that. You bet your. But i would have canceled that so many times over by like an and signed up again. I don't need to keep granted. They've been smart. I'll say this disney has been smart. They it's like it's it's almost like they've made it not worth it to cancel between their shows because like mandal. Orient ends amara show starts when that marvel shows starts stops. They've got like maybe like a three week breathing period before the next one starts up. They've been smart about how they're doing this and because they're not making it binge -able they can do that if this had been if there seven been bendable like i definitely would have been had i would have had time to cancel the by subscription in between so they've been very smart about how they're doing it and i hope there is something that allows me to renew again. Yeah and the one thing about the marvel shows and star wars specifically between everything they have these little vignette. Things like marvel has two things Marvel legends and assembling the the universe so assembling the universe on disney plus essentially behind the scenes of whatever shows so behind the scenes of wanda vision falcon in winter and loki. Legends is basically for anyone who has never seen any of the marvel movies like they can catch you up on wanda or vision or falcon or zemo or black widow or low key or the tesseract or whatever so they have these things for the for new not us new people that may not want to go back to two thousand and eight and watch iron man and i. I'm not saying. I'm not saying people shouldn't want to do that for me right now because i am i am and i'm all about continuity and how satelite the chronological order. I found a website because now that the infantry sagas done listed everything from phase one to phase three chronological order. So you start with first avenger. You go to captain. Marvel ironman ironman too. I still don't believe incredible. Hulk is included. But whatever. that's just my personal opinion and whatever else so i'm looking at phase three here specifically bring this up really quick to talk about black widow. Ernie's like wait. Black widow died in infinity. War between right right it takes place between civil war and infinity war so face three starts with civil war goes to black widow goes to homecoming strange panther ragnarok and then infinity war men in the wasp endgame and then far from home. I am perfectly fine watching black widow on its own. Now that i know where it fits into the universe once i actually have access to it. Non perfectly find waiting for it because it for me it brings up more of. Oh yeah i need to watch that. Even though they should have given her movie like after iron man to but whatever it was it was they couldn't because of contracts. I know so steve. We've kind of taken over your show. That's all right. It was a discussion though. Because it just means we'll do another one of these again soon. Same time same channel next week now. I don't know whatever i am game. Yeah i think. I think my wife rather have me do anything important night right now so i have never gotten into fortnight. So hey maybe that's one thing you you can hop on twitch in just kinda give me a walk through a fortnight but i've never been into the whole fortnight thing i don't know what it is.

Think about this for a second. Any other movie people would be saying. That's too many too fast like but nobody said that about a marvel movie because i remember when pixar made the announcement that they were gonna go from one movie a year to two and i thought luck keeping up that quality boys and boy did they not but like when marvel decided that they were going to be like.

"Saying there isn't anything to play on them at the moment so basically they're just really fancy ways of playing games. I've already played before I got way too involved in fortnight since november because that was one of the games that got a next gen patch for free and on launched the consoles. So i had been playing that pretty much every day for hours a day up until about a week ago. I broke that spell. Mike and i had a conversation about breaking spells.

NTSB Releases Preliminary Report on Fatal Tesla Crash
"Everybody around here and we've got quite a lot to go through. We've got an update from the national transportation safety board on the highly publicized accident involving accessible vehicle in texas a couple of weeks ago. We've got news on tesla. Energy manufacturing batteries and of course elon musk's appearance on saturday. Night live over the weekend rough start to the week. Four tesla's stock finishing down nearly six and a half percent today to six hundred and twenty nine dollars four cents that compared to the nasdaq down over two and a half percent the worst day in a couple of months for the nasdaq and we did see sector rotation today the dow was only down a tenth of a percent as the dow is generally made up of lower growth more value oriented stocks. So i know the tesla down. Six percent can sometimes feel a little bit rough especially for new investors but for context arc's innovation. Etf so a group of a lot of different stocks was down by itself five percent today. Obviously tesla driving a portion of that but certainly the movement was not just isolated to tesla. Today before we get into the news here you may have heard already but my voices still recovering a little bit. So i'll do my best to get through this but apologies for any disruption from that. I i up today. We are revisiting the unfortunate accident back in mid april of decimal ice vehicle in texas. As i'm sure most of you remember this received a ton of media attention because at the time law enforcement said that they were one hundred percent certain that no one was in the driver's seat of the model s. at the time of impact. You may remember that. At the time we went through a number of different reasons why the seemed implausible. And i felt like law enforcement was speaking far too soon saying they were one hundred percent certain of something without even having done a full investigation yet so too soon too much conviction and this led to massive media coverage of this accident. A lot of scrutiny. For tesla you've got consumer reports coming out and running some test about how they can defeat these safety features built in to help prevent people from using autopilot beyond its intended use case just keeps getting piled on all because of this one quote from law enforcement so here we've got the preliminary report from the ntsb quote. The crash trip originated at the owners residents near the end of a cul de sac footage from the owners. Home security camera shows the owner entering the car's driver seat and the passenger entering the front passenger seat. The car leaves and travels about five hundred and fifty feet before departing the road on a curve driving over the curb and hitting drainage culvert a raised manhole and a tree

He's walking around attacking people with an ax There was an officer that basically told me to stay indoors as a guy with a machete. Who's walking around here. Apparently dimmer man had a dog with him. See deborah not. People with dogs aren't necessarily always good people i know. They got an action a knife at the scene and sometime later they responded to a home in encino on alonzo place where a hundred year old man was found dead. Numerous contusions and lacerations they believe dimmer man killed him. Can you imagine living to one hundred and going that way to get murder. They've identified the poor guy as yussef mahboob ian. He'd been living on the secluded hilltop cul de sac for more than thirty years. His wife is the one who found so. I guess he broke into the house.

Buffalo Springfield's Mr Soul Brings Back Memories
"Unless it to a song I haven't thought about since my childhood, which is where I always travel back to on the weekends. And for what must have been the 30th time, I'm listening to a song from buffalo Springfield back in the 60s. It's a really nasty, hard psychedelic song called mister soul. And I'm sure a lot of you knew right away what that is. Others have no idea. I'm going to put a YouTube video of it on the Facebook page. And singing lead vocals on this song is none other than Neil Young, obviously he was one of the big stars of buffalo springs. Buffalo Springfield. Buffalo full Springsteen buffalo Springfield. Now I'm not a big giant fan of Neil Young. Outside of a few songs. But the ones I do like, I really like a lot. Like powder finger or harvest moon. And more on those in a bit. But Neil Young just fucking destroys this song, mister Seoul. I'm watching a documentary on Netflix Friday night called echoes in the canyon. And it was a great peek into how amazing the music scene was here in Southern California. Especially off this long windy road that we all know here called Laurel canyon. And back in the back in the day, everybody who was anybody in music lived there. The Beach Boys, Frank Zappa, Jackson Brown, the birds, The Mamas & the Papas, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Tons more. And it even got increasingly more popular into the 70s, but what they created in this two or three year period is absolutely unbelievable. It's clearly the best music of that generation. And for those of you who don't know, Laurel canyon is a twisty road that and it's also got a lot of break offs, a lot of like what they call a capillary road that split off and into just wild directions, you know, most of which are cul de sacs and some really beautiful homes. But it's a road that goes over the mountains and on one side it could empty you out into the valley where people like me live or if you go the other way, it can put your right into the heart of Hollywood right on sunset boulevard. It dumbs off at sunset boulevard. So back in the day, these artists, they all played clubs on the strip, like the troubadour, whisky, a go go. And when they were done, crowds of people who went to see them, but all like drive up Laurel canyon, and then it wasn't that hard to find the house on the houses, and they just drive up to the typical the musician's house. And the party would continue. They'd break out their instruments, people would sit around, and it became like, you know, another 12 hour party.

The suburb is stafford. My grandfather built the house sixty years ago. He recently passed and my grandmother is moving to a retirement. Time a have an opportunity to buy this property and have always wanted to a no. You shouldn't invest for emotional purposes but it's not just that this property is wrought by the broke at the end of a cul de sac and he's in inner city brisbane which is less than ten kilometers from the city.

But that's all the hassles a large piece of land. I think i've we're going to be serious. Was going to say timing. The houses on a large piece of land. I think over the next few years. The prices are only going to continue to rise and desirability in that area is growing so i see great capital growth potential. The house is an odd configuration and build in the sixties. It really needs to go at some point sadly and if so i now a developer will bulldoze and rebuilt three ten houses on their as doing in the surrounding area but current plan would be to rent it out as it is for a few years and eventually replace it with a nice family harm to have as a rental to a family. The house is estimated to be around six hundred sixty thousand from research and has on that straight and getting up to one million in some cases. I have one investment property in new zealand. That has been a great at to build equity in. I see my grandparents house as a low yield. High capital gains opportunity. To buy hold renovate would love to.

"The mcstay family had recently moved into their new house on on a nice cul de sac in fallbrook California Nets. At the time they disappeared. They had relocated from a beachside apartment in San Clemente. Joey and summer next day had been making plans working on home renovations when they stopped responding to texts and phone calls on February Fourth Twenty ten Joseph was forty he owned and operated earth inspired products misses a business at designed installed water fountains. It had been. Joey's dream to be self employed Loyd in order for him to spend as much time as possible with his sons Johnny h four and Joseph Junior h three. Joey's summer was a licensed assist real estate agent. She taken some time off in order to be a stay at home mother. Yeah and to work on the house. 'cause there was a lot of work to be done there. They big cleanser this house. Stay Dead Joey and summer had each been married once before when they met and according to friends they fell in love quickly and they were just crazy about each other and quite happy. So let's go into summer. Joey's history is a bit just to get a better understanding of who they were as people and who they were as a couple before this all happened. So Joey's birth name was Joseph Allen Ashley. His Mother Susan married his biological logical father. Robert Lee right out of high school but the marriage just didn't last very long at all. Susan then met Patrick mcstay. Nineteen in seventy one and Patrick was quite happy to take over his. Joey's father he and Susan married in nineteen seventy two. They were married and and Patrick adopted Joey with Robert. Ashley's permission which I found pretty interesting and with this adoption Joe. His name was legally changed to Joseph. Brian mcstay then in nineteen seventy-three. Joey's brother Michael was born. And Joey was a doting big brother. Who really love to help out with Michael's care but unfortunately Patrick and citizens marriage didn't last long either and they divorced in nineteen seventy five and and they would continue to have some back and forth issues over the years? Although Susan remarried and maintained custody of Joey and Michael the two boys did continue to spend in time with their father Patrick and for a while in his teens joey went to live with his dad in Dallas Texas. So according to Patrick the father he was is very close with Joey. A very good relationship is consistent adopted kid right right Berkeley her very good relationship. Well I mean. He came in pretty early in. Joey's life so there wasn't a lot of you know arguing back and forth about anything not a lot of that. You're not my real father stuff through now. Joey met his first wife Heather in nineteen ninety and they got married in nineteen ninety two in nineteen ninety six. They had a son now. Al Joanne Heather lift in San Clemente near the beach. Had his father's pretty wealthy Yona jewelry store in Laguna beach but he really likes Joey and he helped give his daughter just an absolutely beautiful wedding and before he met and married Heather Joe. It had several jobs he worked as a waiter and bartender. He also started his own small business designing and selling products now later. He began designing small waterfalls and fountains in his garage. He borrowed a little bit of money from his father opened a shop which he called Naturally Dana Point and by late nineteen ninety six was quite successful. He had made over two hundred thousand dollars in sales then he brought his brother Michael and open naturally DP fountains with the least warehouse for the production. So he's starting to move up a little bit here. Yes very hard worker very motivated. But Heather enjoys marriage. Rich fell apart and he found out that heather was having an affair and she had become pregnant by her lover but still he kind of blamed himself at least in part are because he'd been working a lot so he wasn't spending much time with her. He tried to work things out even told heather that he would happily raise the new baby as his own But it was too late. Heather was already in love with this other guy and she decided on a divorce but apparently this was devastating to joey. He was still in love with heather so he was pretty heartbroken and depressed any moved in with his mom and according to her he went through months and months of depression. He and his brother Michael continued to run the fountain business though and eventually they got together with a computer expert named Dan. Kavanagh Dan and help them build a website so they could begin doing their business as earth inspired products online so people could go online and order fountains so this is really opened up things for them then. Joey did meet summer. That was in two thousand four. They were introduced by. Joey's friend who was named macgyver. So I don't remember. He had enough his parents liked the TV show. It's a strange name choices in it or yeah so summer was just breaking up with her longtime boyfriend. Vic and Joey and summer's relationship moved fast but she was worried about how vic was going to react to her being with someone a new so soon she didn't own a house with vic and had to go through the legalities of getting her name off of the property in the mortgage and getting some money out of that so summer was a bit eccentric and she had been known by more than one name so this would end up causing a lot of speculation after the family's family's disappearance like what was going on with her. She was born Virginia Lisa Aranda and had also been known as SUMMER MARTELLI SUMMER ARANDA RANDOM MARTELLI LISA Aranda and Lisa Martelli Summers mom raised her and her two siblings on her own as a single mom in both California and Chicago and according to summer's mother Martelli was the surname of Summers Stepdad. Now another thing that summer did that would lead some people to question things was that she was also known to have taken some years off her age when speaking to people. But there's no evidence that she used this new birth date on any legal documents family members including her sister. Heavens suggested that her name changes were just her own preference and it wasn't anything anything to avoid any legal entanglements. She was just the kind of person who wanted to make up her own name. She went to live in California and be named summer and she did did. She did it so summer gave birth to Joey's first son Johnny in two thousand five and in less than two years later Joseph Junior was born a summer had an aversion to hospitals and both boys were delivered at home shortly after Joseph. Juniors born Joe in summer got married and this is a small ceremony in Orange County. The summer side of the family didn't attend. She didn't seem very close to family. And this worry. Joey's mother so the night before the wedding summer had called her family s and not to come to the wedding and stole his mom. Susan was never quite sure awesome redundant no but it seems like. Joey knew why he wasn't questioning it. So you know there were issues but what family doesn't have issues really. Were your those issues. His issues right and these were a little extraordinary. I guess but who knows what was going on and it was a small second marriage. So maybe it wasn't a big deal. Having family. There is a bigger deal to some people than others where I would put that as a priority. I'd like they're where my family at my wedding. Of course right. Yeah but not all. My family came to my wedding. We'll important one stood. Oh okay well. According to a lot of people though summer was very jealous of Joe his first wife Joey and heather shared custody of their son Jona. Joey's friends friends and family said that summer was very caring Jona even though she wasn't always thrilled with heather. Summer did complained to her sister. Tracy that heather would barge barge into their house regularly. You know even walking in when Joey's in the shower kind of weird and she would drop off Jona without calling ahead and just kind of expect. Expect summer to Babysit so summer was trying to get along and she put up with it at first but eventually she told Joey that she was going to have to break up and leave if he didn't set some boundaries with the ex wife now to me that seems totally reasonable for those to me too yeah. I'm not just a working or drop off daycare right. No Yeah and you're not married to him anymore. So what are you walking into the House for is if you live here. Durham my house. Yeah Komo Yard. That's right so I totally get that. I mean it's territorial thing if nothing else plus. It's disrespectful very disrespectful. To summer summer and to summer and Joey's relationship maybe not the best thing for Jona to see either possibly not
The Difference Between Avenues, Roads, and Boulevards?
"Welcome to brainstorm introduction of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Boko bomb here. Have you ever wondered why the road you live on. Maybe called an Avenue Boulevard or a court instead of a plain old street was the whim of your neighborhoods developer or the town council. Actually there are rules regarding road classifications nations and while they're not always followed. Typically they are the basic premise behind road naming conventions which are fairly consistent around the English. Speaking world is the name bestowed upon a paved or unpaved passage depends upon its size and function a road. For example is a path that connects two points generally generally roads head out of town or away from the heart of a city. A street in contrast is a public road with buildings on both sides. This means that a street is also also erode. Erode isn't necessarily a street avenues generally run perpendicular to streets but also have trees and buildings on both sides and each municipality decides in which direction to place its streets and avenues in Manhattan for example avenues. Run North and south while streets run east and West in Denver Ver- it's the opposite in in Tucson. They got innovative calling the roads running diagonally to streets and avenues strategy news. A Postal Abbreviation S. T. R. A.. So streets avenues. And roads are the main names for our passages but here are some other common definitions a boulevard a wide street with trees and other vegetation on one or both sides and often a median to divide. Traffic Court is a street ending in a loop or circle. Michael Aka cul de sac while place is a rotor street with a dead end. That's not a looper circle. A crescent is a winding and curved road that typically quickly attached to another road at each end. A drive is a long road that winds around geographical features such as a river or mountain. A lane is a narrow road that typically leads to a residential zone an are often found in rural areas. A terrace is a street. Following the upper portion of a slope and away is a small street branching off of a road these passages are usually short and often feature another dead end of course as areas and especially bustling residential residential areas develop and change new passes may be built connecting roads that previously ended in dead ends or buildings or infrastructure may be built blocking what was formerly an intersection in addition to most places in the United States following fairly standard street naming conventions most major cities are laid out in a grid system where the streets run at right angles with each other. This makes it relatively easy to find your way around. Chicago took things a step further by selecting the intersection of State Street and Madison Avenue in the heart of the city as its zero

North Korea says missile test a "warning" to South Korea
"Let's talk to the South Korea based analyst Robert Kelly he's liable muse stay what we know about the type of missiles that have been developed and when that tested on Thursday wrote we're still we're still learning stuff can government doesn't share information very readily about this it's a short range that's probably the most important thing politically because the sort of informal gentleman's agreement the US president has with Kim Jong un is mostly about long range stuff that could strike the United States in one of the issue the trump of course is that he's not so great with American allies so short range which Japan South Korea and range but you know trump the sort of mixed on his opinion about allies so as long as the north Koreans only doing sort of smaller stuff like this the of the larger process with the US can continue the military exercises that this is a battle the ones that are held between the US and South Korea that's a regular thing has been going on for years yes it is which is one of the reasons why it's a little bit surprised that the north Koreans are doing this but on the other hand I mean they have a wage now they have an opening on this they managed to get some stuff out of the Americans in the past most obviously all these nice photo ops with American president help legitimize North Korea as like a real country not some weird or William cul de sac and that's a really valuable writing so now the north Koreans want to continue to push to get concessions would just start writing in the north Koreans were like the exercises to stop it would reduce south current readiness sort produce inter operability so they can get it that's great and that that reliance on the relationship pool that is our president trump anyway to have the relationship with North Korea deemed a success that's that bargaining chip yeah that's right and that's where I think serve is a concern out there in the annals community which is that the president has sort of talked up this notion as a friendship with Kim Jong on it this is sort of important it almost seems like on itself the president and you know a lot of people think with an election coming up next year complexion and a one the perception of all winter victory on North Korea even if he doesn't have so he might be willing to bend on north Korean demands in order to maintain the fiction are they useful look for affection or whatever of of of progress in North Korea I'm I'm what's the reaction to this elsewhere in the region you'll normally in South Korea and the orange contract this morning was one of people in those countries saying about it what in the south Koreans are used to this right I mean one of the things I think that westerners always kind of surprised about is how tough grants are just become so accustomed to north Korea's pretty over the top rhetoric then check normally they're worse than this right is it pretty awful stuff especially in the original Korean from the north Japan's little bit dice you're writing the Japanese been word for a while the trump is in a radic on reliable ally which sounds pretty familiar to you guys in your house and your obvious really try to flatter trouble like gold plated golf clubs literally and like tax and all this kind of stuff and you have to know the Americans are willing to actually go after short range missiles though with the north Koreans at least Japan with Grange and that's sort of a long term concerns the Japanese for the south Koreans even north cripples huge missile force I mean makes things worse but it doesn't make things really much worse because North Korea can argue a lot of damage conventional south recession in the one that's so social drug in a row but it is such an interesting situation that you know years of diplomacy could be change for a relationship that is the size based on golf clubs and hats which prison therefore could disintegrate any moment yeah that's for the Japanese concern for awhile right which is one of the reasons why I think I'll be keeps getting reelected you know we just sort of you know his party just one again as I think they're sort of eight cents in Japan the ethical conservatism nationalists in office because trump unreliable and then maybe Japan us to start building its own aircraft carriers and things like that I mean your trump is a real wild card right and then she throws Japan South Korea under the bus by only insisting on North Korea the nuclear are demi's allies on long range stuff that's going to cause a real alliance fracture and I think that's one of the reasons why the north screen shots short range missiles to create exactly at fracture thank you wrote a really Kelly is an analyst of this poem the will normally based in South Korea and live on the study from Japan

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, I'm Lauren Vogel bomb, and if you've ever driven through the sprawl of an American suburb, you note, the streets twist and turn even in the absence of hills. Rarely are they set up like a grid. Take one wrong turn and you could end up looping around a cul de sac forever. It can feel like, but how did these winding streets become so ubiquitous with the suburbs. The answer lies in the days following the industrial revolution of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, though, the period led to all of the modern technologies and food ways. We currently enjoy at the time it seriously worsened living conditions for many city dwellers we spoke with Paul night and architectural and urban designer here in Atlanta and the executive director of the Douglas, the Allen institute for the study of cities he said at any time before the early twentieth century, you really did not want to live in the cities, especially after the industrial revolution in places like London and New York, they were filthy. They were truly. Dangerous along came British urban planner Ebonics or Howard in eighteen ninety eight. He published the book tomorrow, a peaceful path to social reform, which was reissued in nineteen to as garden cities of tomorrow night said of the book, one of the ideas that came out of ebony users work was this idea of living in the country and then working in the city. So that you could get the best of both worlds. Sound familiar, thus what we know today as the suburbs were born around the turn of the twentieth century, but their early success depended on streetcars which allowed many people to travel to their jobs in the cities and Henry Ford automating the assembly line and introducing the model t car really helped the suburbs. Boom. But the biggest move to suburbia came after World War Two ended in nineteen Forty-five. Millions of American GI's returned from war with housing benefits, and the suburbs became the place to be for US families. So what does all this have to do with the curving streets? We know today while many big cities during the industrial revolution had terrible living conditions for the working class. They did have something desirable. The grid network. A look at New York City planners laid out the streets in a right angle rectangular formation as opposed to this spoken wheel layouts of cities like Paris. And that's no accident. A grid network is officially and it promotes walkability the typical suburban St. network spurned this layout in favor of wide roads with sweeping curves. One reason why was to make the suburbs appear closer to nature and to Ebenezer Howard's idea of living in the country. Night said the reason that people are wanting to leave the city is that idea of a return to nature and to provide a yard for their children and to get out of the unsafe environment of the city. It's just this bucolic idea if you want to promote this idea of nature and natural topography, the new can't have this rigid gridiron on your landscape. You've got to curve the streets in order to allow people to experience the curve, linear nature of nature. Another reason for winding streets stems from that giver of suburban life, the car the grid network is built around the idea of people walking from place to place, but the suburbs rely on cars and curved streets allow carts to travel faster than the grid network, which has constant stops at intersections, but curving streets have cost. They are less walkable precisely because they make four longer rose with fewer intersections the road network. Also has fewer streets than a grid pattern, which means less street frontage and therefore less space for retail offices and other mixed use developments having less walkable streets with less development forces people to drive more often that leads to another cost of curved streets. More car accidents urban driving can feel chaotic because of the increase in walkers and bikers, but it also creates slower speeds, and therefore fewer fatal accidents data from the US census bureau backs this up in twenty fifteen about nineteen percent of the US population lived in rural areas. But real tallies accounted for forty nine percent of all traffic fatalities. The US continues to become more suburban is. So it's unlikely that these winding streets will go away anytime soon night says infill building the development of spare land and otherwise largely settled areas provides opportunities to change the face of these neighborhoods. The challenge to achieving the grid network in the suburbs is both political and legal though, right now, most suburbs require developers to clear hurdles in order to make a pedestrian friendly grid pattern while those who create car Centric cul de sac. Subdivisions are on easy street night said the law is not in walkability favor. Today.

I got a an issue here. I live on a on a small cul de sac. I live on the corner. And then my neighbor to the side as me. Has a swimming pool. That's kind of positioned really next to my house. And so I have a little sense there on the side yard, and then just on other side of it is their pool. And I'm having a I've always had a little bit of a drainage issue over there. Just it's a stretch of maybe about fifteen feet, and I've thought well, you know, one of these days, I'll I'll do something about it. But it just seems like in the last few months. That that drainage issue has just kinda gone beserk. Yep. And and I know that we've had a lot of rain. And it may just be that they say, you know, I've talked to my neighbor. Basically what's happening is the whole side yard of my house is just much and then that extends I think because some of the water in my backyard drains off to the side and goes out to the street about half of my yard on the back part is also just just much, and I to me it seems like more is going on the city claims that there's no water mains or there's no water pipes back there. In there's in its in. It's clean. It doesn't seem to stink or anything. Right in the neighbors quaint claiming that the pools not leaking, right? They say the putting on our pool doesn't go down or anything, and it's a closed system. And yeah. They had an issue for a while were they said their their water Bill was huge. But then they had a guy come out and work on the meter a little bit in their latest water Bill was not big. So now, I don't know what to think. Well, there is no question. That I had been getting more drainage calls than a little bit in the last couple months only because we have had so much rain. Okay. And so if you're if you have a low spot there that holds water. Yeah. We're getting enough rain every other day that it would keep that filled up and turn it to mush you definitely want to get that taken care of because how far away from the house is that. Oh, yeah. That's like within Tennessee eighteen you're, you know, you're gonna make me start crying. When I start thinking about foundation repair and Steph. Well, and that's why I was telling my neighbors like man, I don't want to undermine or do something to my foundation. Now, what happens when you when you get soil like that the first thing that happens when you gotta wet areas the soil starts to swell, and it'll pick up the foundation, but when it starts turning into mush like, you're describing it loses its integrity. And that's when the foundational actually start to drop on you. Okay. Worried about what you need to look at is. Is there a home or or something that's keeping the water from draining out to the front? Okay. And if there is get it dug out to where the water can drain, and if that takes care of your problem, you don't really need to go any further if it doesn't then you may have to start looking at putting in a French drain or something to dry that soil out. Okay. Even if it has to be pumped away. That is far cheaper than waiting for it to tear the foundation up. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, okay. Well, that sounds good. Do you have anybody you recommend to do that kind of work? Let me think for a second. Yeah. Due west. Okay. Yeah. You can give us a call at seven one three four seven three. Seven one five six, and that's one of the things that we do a lot because it's preventative maintenance to keep from having a foundation problem. Okay.
