"Opposing offensive. So that's going to help them. Offenses has to be consistent. We got the hierarchy of that AFC, the Buffalo Bills, high expectations since then a Bengals coming off a Super Bowl run. Kansas City Chiefs of the Kansas City Chiefs, they will be for a long time to come. The cults have gotten better. If you believe in Matt Ryan kind of being the guy changes scenery in your mind following this Titans team, where do you stack them up right now in the AFC? Yeah, I have them a playoff team. I would say 5th or 6th in that ballpark because like you said, teams just really reload. I mean, the Raiders you have to put them in the mix too. So I think they'll make the playoffs as a wild card team. They'll be very close to the coats as far as winning the AFC south, but I think right now the coast have a slight slight edge over the tire. All right, you gotta answer this last question. I spent time in the south and I married into a southern family got out of that, but I married into southern family. The big thing was always the NFL's looked upon as to where their favorite college players graduated to. But it's college football number one always in the south. And the Tennessee Titans with that success in Nashville have they changed that narrative over the years to where NFL is first or is it still college football first Titans really like one a there now? Yeah, the narrative has been changed towards NFL first, but you have to look at the location, right? Vanderbilt is right here in Nashville and we know that program is not exactly the most successful and Tennessee, you know, is in Knoxville, a couple hours away. People are crazy about their evolves, but they haven't been that good either. And it just so happened at the tyres have been on an upswing over the last four years. So it all kind of fell into place and Titans football is where is that? Yeah, but you know why Vanderbilt's in that SEC, right? Why is that? The GPA of the conference, my friend, that's always what they say. You gotta keep it up. Yeah. I like that, yeah. You gotta balance it out. That's the next option. Somebody's gotta keep that GPA high Vanderbilt has done so. They have not been successful since Franklin, of course, left. And went to Penn State. Toronto Davenport, ESPN NFL nation reporter covering the Titans follow him on Twitter at T Davenport NFL trying to appreciate a man, have a great weekend. Thank you, appreciate it. You guys take care. Awesome stuff there. I'll tell you, that's a that's an interesting team. Realistic ice at 5 or 6 right now in that AFC. I do think the colts are better. How about that arm, my team has given you raiders some love there. How about that? Gotta love that. Oh, I love it. Yeah, absolutely. What's the big hype at the Raiders? I'm trying to think I still got Derek Carr, right? Is he still there? I think he's good. Yeah. Not great. Josh Jacobs. They love him so much. They didn't pick up his 5th year option. They drafted two running backs. Right. So they're not in love with Jacobs that much. They bring back sir dime a dozen, you know? That's why you don't travel in the first round. Yeah. Exactly. Who's your why not? Darren Waller? Waller's great. Third and Renfro? All right. Nothing special. Yeah. And in devonta Adams. Now that's right. How can I forget devonta? That's right. The big trade, devonta Adams. You know the big news was you traded Yannick and gawk way. And he is pissed. Yeah, yeah. He was a greater captain last year, and I just saw a story. The colts, who they got traded, he got traded to come visit Vegas. And he's going to have it out for Derek Carr. Oh my gosh. I got to throw this out there. I mean, it's funny to hear that Yannick and gawk way is unhappy that he got let go by the Raiders. I mean, Yannick and gawk way has become a player that seemingly plays for different team every year, right? Well, he was good. I was really impressed with his play last year, and he played all 17 games. A ten sacks, a double digit sacks, good player. But it's funny 'cause this is a guy that has played literally for 14s since 2019. So now he's mad that he gets let go by another team. He felt he was a reader, you know? Well, yeah. Until they got rid of them after they get rid of them, yeah. Yeah. Yeah, you were a radar for your. I hope you didn't buy in Vegas. I hope you rented, you know? I mean, that's what I think. I forgot the dumbest. I gotta tell you. I think about the dumbest things are. Like, I'm always like, okay, you know, these guys, you know, athletes, coaches make a lot of money, right? But yet they move around so much. More so with coaches. Do some of these players like think it's smart to buy in each town that they go to each city that they go to, thinking that they're going to be there long term or are they just like, you know what? I don't know how long they're.

"Really used to to go to movies. And if somewhat painful to stop that but this is after all the golden age of television and it's not so horrible to stay at home and watch it all the time and i can talk to my wife during it a knighton eat up really good popsicle or change a glass of wine or something like that while i'm doing it so it hasn't been that bad. I think the comparison to previous periods wars or spanish flu pandemic or whatever where we had to just sit at home and just reading was about the only possibility. I really liked reading. But i like other things to this. Is nothing what we've had to go through. It seems to me. In comparison we'd been entertaining ourselves. Pretty royal late. Yes thanks to amazon and netflix and all the other online entertainment sources exactly. It's hard to keep track of them all there so many now every network wants to have their own own the customer relationships. Yeah i think we will have at some point analytics and a i that will tell us which ones are best suited to us. But i think now you gotta spend a lot of human time figuring out join sign up for the new peacock my getting something on acorn that. I'm not getting through amazon prime and it takes a lot to be a good consumer these days. There's a lot of work behind that for sure. Tom devonport you have shared so many great ideas and insights with us today on my quest for the best.

The jury is still out on but the idea's that they're bringing to us our serves inspiration for other things that we're looking at ears of ai. You share with us. The idea that in order to take advantage of ai. You've got to make time to think about it. You've got to raise your awareness of what's going on and you've also got to realize that maybe the technology is more and more affordable but don't wait because the consultants and the people that are required to implement it within your company are never going to get cheaper. You talked about the example with radius finance. And have they use it to make better mortgage decisions that are faster for the consumer and more advantageous for the company. We talked about in healthcare. How you can use ai. In order to solve very difficult problems and one of the big issues with using it to a higher degree is being transparent with it many consumers. There's more technology available than we're deploying because consumers and users aren't as familiar were trusting it as muffed trusting enough in order to have it used to wider degree. We talked about fico and how they use it. As an example of being more and more transparent and we also also described for us the importance of being able to use ai in a judicious way in order to use to your advantage. Tom davenport thank you again. So much for joining me on my quest for the best. Thank you will net before we say goodbye for now.

Increases in Extreme Precipitation Cost the U.S. $73 Billion
"Torrential. Rainstorms can flood homes. Wash out roads and bridges and destroy crops over the past. Three decades flooding from heavy precipitation has caused about two hundred billion dollars of damage in the. Us francis davenport is a phd student. In earth system science at stanford university. She wanted to know how much of that enormous price tag can be blamed on global warming. We've seen that extreme precipitation events are increasing in frequency or intensity and so we wanted to quantify what are the financial costs of those changes in precipitation. Her team analyzed historic rainfall trends and financial data about flood damages over decades. They estimated that between nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight and twenty seventeen about seventy three billion dollars. A flood damage can be attributed to increases in extreme precipitation. That's more than a third of the cost of flooding over those thirty years. So devonport says that people are already paying the financial cost of warming world. I think having those hard dollar amounts is really important for some of these policy conversations about what to do.

Critics say the practice widely known as race. Norman makes it harder for black players to qualify for compensation the league caused the lawsuit entirely misguided. I just want to be looked at the same way as a white guy. We bust chops together bro. It wasn't white or black team. We lost together. We won together for henry growing up in small town mississippi.

What was the result of the claiming file. I was denied. The administrator rejected. Henry's claim questioning whether his performance on the tests were valid and asserting that the doctor quote used inappropriate norms. Henry's docker did not use that race warming adjustment. we're to function in our daily lives like normal human beings without any disruption and not become conceited. For two years later henry says with health worsening. He went in for another evaluation with a neuropsychologist. This clinician used that. Nfl recommended formula.

NFL Playoff Futures: Who will make the 2020 post-season?
"Wanted to talk about playoff odds and not not. Just who's gonna make the playoffs but also the nfc the nfc's a really weird place. The saints are plus three fifty to win this to in the nfc. None of us like the saints even are as good as they looked last week against tampa. There's still this unease with because breezes arm strength. It just makes me nervous. I'm starting to talk myself into the saints. Okay yeah okay so a couple of things number one. Smart people in july and august said wait until brady gets half a season under his belt and they're going to get better you know. No one cares. More about the details. And tom brady doesn't have a training. Camp does not as doesn't put pads on till till august fifteenth. He's gonna get better and better and better and so week one when when the bucks and the saints played. I threw that out. I said this this doesn't matter bracing to get better and better better. This was the closing the gap game for me. And then i didn't see that and obviously they were there whipped everywhere you know. Ali maher pet being out was a big thing with with with with people who started the game. But i think that this was bigger than than alley marquette quite frankly okay The the saints were able to get a four man rush the entire game. Are they able to pressure brady on half of his dropbacks when they had a four man rush. That's really good Since marcus davenport's come back in week five had the most pressures in football pressuring and football There's just something there. The problem at the beginning of the year was that lattimore and marcus williams were bad and those are two pretty good players and i think that you know a good pass rush. Ken console that those guys can get better and so with with brees. Listen there are. There are problems with the fact. You can't throw down the field. The offensive line is not as good as it has been in years hospice and matter with brees because he gets rid of the ball and a second. It's like peyton manning he doesn't need you know the the the best offensive line in the world and then lattimore who we were kind of dunking on because at one point he was giving almost a perfect passer rating. He owns mike evans. He own them. He is not given up a reception. Mike evans the last three games. They've played and so when if those guys play in the playoffs again. There's that match up. So i i don't. I'm feeling better about the saints. Now that i was two three weeks ago. Good coaching staff. I gary coaching staff. Yeah so the fear in this isn't just the saints but the fear is all right. What happens at their downtown in a playoff game. It's basically the lamar jackson corollary. How am i feeling down. Thirteen to three in the second quarter and they've just done a three and out. What were my emotions in that moment. That's my the saints because a breeze. I think that because they don't you don't think they're capable of a big play. Is that your fear if teams though like all right. They've got to air this out. They've got to quicken the pace and also it's amazing to me a cameras probably been the. Mvp think it's either him cook mahomes berry some order Okay i'm amazed at teams aren't just like all right.

We would have thought that would have happened by now. But there have been some delays and setbacks and and, of course, the Corona virus pandemic, But while it didn't have any people on board, it did have some payloads. Including some research that was placed outside of the booster that could be used to help the lunar lander that blue origin is developing for NASA in its quest to get back to the moon.

Blue Origin chalks up 13th successful test flight
"What an exciting morning it was for the blue origin rocket scientists in Kent as they watched their 13th successful launch Take place. It happened at a site in Texas. But as Christian Davenport reports in the Washington Post The 20 year old company. Blue Origin still hasn't reached orbit or put a human in space and Christian joins us on the coma News line. What was the purpose of today's launch? Yeah, thanks for having me. So the purpose of today's launch was to launch their new shepherd vehicle. It was a test launch. It goes not to orbit as you mentioned, but it goes sub orbital. It goes straight up and straight down. Ultimately, this is a vehicle that's going to fly paying customers to space.

Well, delays and pandemics aside as you write, Lord and kind of has a motto of keeping a slow pace. Why, though they lost a contract with the Pentagon not too long ago? Well, you're right. I mean, the motto is Jeff Bezos has said that they wanted to go step by step ferociously. But there's been some criticism of the company that they've been moving too slowly at a time. When you see companies like Space six, you know, which got the orbit relatively quickly. They're flying humans. They of their first Ah, flight of NASA astronaut in May and brought them back safely a couple months later. That you know what is taking blurred and so long and they hadn't flown their new Shepherd's vehicle since December, So there was sort of a 10 month gap there, But I will tell you and I've been down to Cape Canaveral in Florida. You drive by the manufacturing facility that blue origin is building there, and it's matches. It is absolutely mind blowing. And it shows you, Jeff says. This is the most important work he's doing is working space. You think this is going to be a big part of his legacy is dedicated Tio spending a billion dollars a year of his own money into it until while they're moving slowly and deliberately. You can't bet against them. And next year could be a big year and it feels like we say that a lot In states like, but we're looking ahead at flying people for the first time in New Shepherd, they said. Today they were maybe a couple of flights away from doing that, And then they also hope to launch their new Glenn vehicle. That's the Big rocket that would eventually go to orbit.

A lot of people are looking at them and thinking they're both of those. But in fact, they're just traditional satellites launched in proximity to one another but there have been a lot of really really am interesting reports one comes to mind in particular from the 17th of September Thursday night three weeks of just over three weeks ago a military flight crew an Air National Guard Texas Air National Guard flight crew was out on a night training flight in a uh-60 Black Hawk helicopter. And they landed after their training flight and they looked up in the sky above them and saw a cluster of up to a dozen eggs white lights streaking all over the sky maneuvering apparently relative to one another and I talked to the captain of that flight crew and he was dead.

Our National Defense that if they're in touch with aliens, they're certainly not going to let our potential adversaries know that fact.

Of course there my my adversary uniting government. That's why you can tell the truth. Yeah, exactly.

And the other thing in the pot and he's and screws, so this is. Say! This is the thing about tuning history is. It's only we can only really go back to what was written down. What's documented who? Where really stuck? With all the secret societies in the secrecy of of how things Adum because that that secrecy back in court. Maybe within the whites, not secrecy held onto your job. I mean we brilliant now sharing information. And sharing in everything that we do because it doesn't ultimately make us look good makes us feel good, yeah. for a lot of our when not? In that business of were not under one in the business of making music, people have share the most him. You know they tend not to be. They tend to be less and less salesman.

"Bar vendors e and today I'm joined by my friend. Jeff Davenport to teach us about the history of Drum Tuning Jeff welcome to the show. Hi, there bought and thank you very much full invites me on the show. It's a real pleasure. We're we're across the ocean? I'm over in the UK S. Yeah. It's a pleasure to be here and be part of the drum history podcast. This is great. I've really enjoyed I mean we've gotten. We've gotten to know each other over the last couple of weeks Really enjoyed. Lockdown man were in lockdown I really enjoyed watching your. You have a video series. On Youtube or channel called drum tuning workshops in your on instagram. We can chat about that all at the end, but you. You do some really cool stuff. and I know that you. Work with ROB cooking. You, you do tuning. seminars would call it at the Chicago show. Historically so I'm excited to learn the history of this and one I just having the thought in my mind that sometimes I feel like. Like I almost quit to learning to drive where when I started to drive, you're like you're constantly checking the speedometer. You're constantly checking your Mir's. You're checking gas. What what did they? Everything is so like, but then the more you do it. You're just like us doing things without even thinking and I'm sure that's how you get to the level of tuning where you're just Bam. Bam, Bam, okay, sounds good, and yeah. The musical equivalent is knowing your instrument An always used to amaze me. When I was teaching drums drums for bit and when I when I was teaching, I said to you know the pupil thus meeting. They all have been lessons on June. Nine never had an lessons on genie. And they've been having lessons for four years five years. And I've never even thought about how to drive the car have. An Exactly I. Guess It's important. I mean we got to keep it in perspective you know. To play. You got to perform your plates music. And so I was like show that the tuning in the setting up in does come after in a learning a few groups and alone to stuff. But knowing your instruments. If you're guitarist. You chewed up before you have lessened. Occur, and apply set the raid if your socks off and still do the same and so on so forth. tiffany players. Obviously have to find the note of the drum going to to play for the performs piece. And so the drum kit wait we like. We're lasted pile really because. We've got the most complex like you say. The variables, we the most complex instrument we you could ever imagine. We have this situation where we can't say what we're doing. You know I always aim if there was a drumhead which could change color with tension. Weeping University miles ahead, but we don't have their hunt. See what we're doing, so we have to resort to enhance. We have to resort to our is our is. and kind of piece it together and. Teaching tuning is about sitting round. Table in the pub all account via or whatever it's about you know it's verbatim. It's you talk about it and you demonstrate it and. It's not in. It's not something really that can be done very accurately through the medium of the computer lab. We now have. Got Much better much better. Knowledge kicking about well. I think knowledge is what kind of gets rid of that taboo ness. So why don't you drop some knowledge on pool and? Perfect segue and and teach everyone really about the history of tuning, because I'm fascinated by it on others, gots involved and. Different elegant staying on I'm glad it's been a period of time. We have had time to think about it because I think we said this right at the beginning when we first to. The history of changing the history of the drum. And I have to be really careful because there are many many hundreds of people who At describing the history of the trump the me I mean I'm Denis. And we are all performers and and looking back over. Pretty much history of human beings, the drum being central to. The gatherings central to communities central to papal. Existing on this earth. I suddenly realized Oh my goodness, Amai my qualified his. I just thought well. You know let's just pick out a few things and look at in drums, being communication, equipment and How do we make them? And so you in I used I. Tell You just quickly. Tell my sources. Because I think they're breeding important. And in points of of information. For everybody to. Throw everything in the Paul so there's a Boko. By James Blades percussion instruments in the history. James Blades was an eminent. Historian but more importantly professional. Orchestral cautions. And Hey did hundreds and hundreds of British Museum trips trips the British Museum to find out about stuff and his book is law. I bought it in lockdown because the first time I've been able to find it one hundred pounds. Now Nice. YEA, it's one of those. When you go to Bella Percussion in London and other premium Percussion Higher Fleiss for London orchestras. Music in, London. This book is on their desk and it's a very good reason What's in there? His is just unbelievable. that's a really good book to look for James Blades and all of his books, actually and the Vienna symphony library, Doxa, fantastic results and only fall. In a music and and sorts of kind of interesting history of an Orchestra instruments, but more importantly it gives you a little bit of insight into how extreme used drums! The. British Museum has a website. The royal collection will look at Iraq lection the minute minute because it has one of. The earliest kind of. Single point chaining mechanisms I e one dial one nope. Many tones. And a system for in a recording those times. And there's a lot of history and tiffany. an lot of history kettle drums, and before that the golden acres and they will put on hold his, and before they were put on hold his. Jump Zone held by people and somebody else played them, so the poor guy was carrying drums down the road. Talk God, but when you really yeah when you really go by looking at tribal drums new. Skin's held on pegs joined insomnia and played over in a plate of pits. And, then you'll kind of. Go right back to. 'EM! In his skin stretched shells tortoises. Turtle Shell Shell Man Yeah, we're we're you know we really did use exactly what was to hand. know communicating passion and feeling. You know and we also had gun after that pretty much when we start, make clay. amphoras and Cookery and things like that. We had clay clay pots. So, if I actually found an old German the shed, which was exactly this, it's a it's a clay pot with a with a stretch skin. on the skin is the skinniest mate. Wet is put on the clay pot, and then is dried and sometimes, and then you know these attacked in the skins, and sometimes they're. Pulled on little bits of.

"Their personal feelings, emotions, and things in listening without judgment with empathy is a huge skill. David, you've got a lot of stuff on this man. You've got blog articles and and and content around empathy like you said you've been beating the drum for years To deaf ears right on. It is inching, but you've got resources on your website in your books and things that that that teach this very skill, but I think that was a big one and the beautiful thing about active listening is it really takes pressure off of you because you don't have to be on with something clever. Sake next you know Yup. And so anyway, that's kind of my thoughts there around that skill set, and in addition to intelligence. There's a lot more training out there today on being emotionally intelligent and emotionally aware I got a heck, I got a book right here. Emotional intelligence Upper whatever it's a David Walton or whatever just a basic guide around emotional intelligence, and that's the kind of stuff I've been trying to hone in even further into that kind of stuff, but I think that skill. is going to become invaluable even more than it was before. I. Think you're right I think it's. It's really interesting again to think about what this is resetting for us. Because, and this is not just in the last three years or five years, and this is not just in financial services, but for a long time. We've always thought about selling as. Something that the salesperson does and what I mean by that is it's you know your work? And Your Skill and oh? You must be such a good talker at right and it's. It's all about that Salesperson's ego gift of Gab Yeah exactly and so for you to say like. Hey, it's take yourself. Stop talking. Be a listener. A one thing I think that was really interesting about what you said is idea of no judgment. Because one thing that I've found over my career as a coach. Is Your job is to help. Somebody become vulnerable, and and there's been a lot of talk about vulnerability and in work conversations for the past few years. Which I think is half the story, but you point you just made me think of why it kind of beer tastes me, because vulnerability is hard, not only for the giver, but for the receiver right and it's so easy to put judgment on somebody, and not in a big way, but yeah, that that raised eyebrow or like Oh. That's a weird thing you just said, and that's just. That's just human nature. Right? It's we judged things I'm going to say it's bad. It's just like oh I noticed that. And so for you to to start practicing that idea of non judgment can be so valuable men one thing. I was just GonNa say and I've used this for years I use this today, and I've felt this to too many salespeople people over the years. The only thing coming out of this is talking to your clients or prospects in saying hey I want to see how I can be a resource to you. Let me know what way I can be a resource to you. Hey, I can come out we can. Can have a conversation you know. Maybe now's not the right time. I just WanNa be a resource to you at some point in the future and I think that's very powerful language I. think that will go a long way with people right now just yourself as trying to be a resource for other people, even if that means connecting them with with the right experts that are outside of your wheelhouse. That's one thing you've done great for years. David on your networking. Things and I think about my my financial adviser. One thing. He's a great financial adviser, but the one thing he's helped me within the last six months is hooking me up with other professionals that aren't even around you know. Eventual served stuffing now I consider him just a resource right, and so that builds that relationship. If people start coming, you ask it. Hey, who do you go to for Xyz and things like that? You might not make one dime off of that, but the goodwill of you being a resource in connecting them right people goes a long long way in building that trust, and that enduring relationship now I, I love that well and of course I. Do 'cause. You're just basically talking about my concept of the Sales Sherpa. Check is in the. Need to carry me around in your back pocket. Man for four. Sure just I'm just going to get a recording of you and I'll just pop you out of my phone and just play you. Play it every time I'm talking to somebody. Hey, you wanNA know more about listener with my friend. Joy Davenport says. Absolutely well then I've got to return the favor and give give you a chance to to tell me about some of that I.

Climate and Floodwaters Are Top of Mind for Some Iowa Voters
"Number one issue for Democratic voters in this presidential election season is healthcare but trailing a close second is climate change morning edition host. Rachel Martin it has been reporting an Iowa this past week ahead of the caucuses and she spent some time in the city of Davenport Mississippi River. The city was the site of record breaking floods last spring. How does the rising river in the threat from climate change affect how people vote? Here's what she found out. You talked to enough business. Owners down by Davenport's riverfront and you quickly quickly realized that pretty much. Everyone has a flood story. I got a call from my sister in law. That said I drop the kids off. I have to go downtown. The levee broke all the water started coming through the drains. And I get down here and we had four and a half feet in her basement. It was coming up to our doors and we just started sandbagging. It just caught my eye and then I went. Oh my God the weavers coming in that last voices Tim Baldwin. He owns an upscale pub right on the waterfront. Dan Bush runs another restaurant a few blocks away and we met them at low pies. Pizza joint. Andrew Lopez is the owner there. Margarita a really chill are red red sauce. It's got a really nice kick to it so you really don't need much with it. All three of these guys took a financial hit after the flood last year but they were the lucky ones. Some some of the businesses around the area had to shut their doors for good. I mean here. You are sitting couple of hundred feet away from the riverbank right over there so do just write this off or do you expect that this is going to keep happening. I think we're forced to take it seriously. That's Dan Bush. After the disaster he started a coalition of business owners to advocate for better flood. Prevention Science shows shows that this is gonNA progressively get worse uh-huh and that we actually didn't it didn't get as bad as it could have got this year The last big event was a nineteen ninety-three. Don't expect it to be another twenty five twenty seven years before it happens again affects your hearts about climate change and your political choices Andrew. I think it's a big deal and it's been getting worse and worse every year so I think it's signed the take a step forward in China or something about it. I you know I love these guys but we have a different political views. Where's the difference? Well the climate change as we hear about it every day through the national media media. I don't believe is our problem. I believe climate changing and I believe climate's been changing since the inception of this planet. Right all I know is what is obvious is to me and that is when it rains. Water has nowhere to go except to the Mississippi River but is it. Is it related to what driving cars I and eating beef. I'm not convinced of that. Damn I think this event definitely made me think more about climate than ever had in my life but Yeah I think we're at the point. Where the cause is not the conversation? It's okay we tim and I agree. It's happening now. How do we handle it? Their answers for that question are are different too. It's GonNa Shave Danny political choice this year. He says he'll caucus for Elizabeth Warren for lots of reasons including her plans to fight climate. Change Tim on the other hand and is a conservative. His primary issue isn't climate change at all it's the economy and he's voting for Donald Trump. We say our goodbyes. Then walk back along the river. We take a right near retail shops and eventually find our way to e second street where we meet any stop-loss. We've got a lot going on right now. So so that's why it's this. Andy runs trendy. Men's clothing store just a couple blocks from the river. I mean the whole community came together and it was. We were knees deep in water. I see and bagging all this area to protect you know our space power you preparing for the inevitability of it happening again. Since I've lived here we've only had one really really big flood And it was when I was young. I don't remember it so historically the are not very high but when you think of the environment the effects and everything that is included what's happening. The chances are a lot higher. Do those issues motivate you politically absolutely. She doesn't want to say who she's going to caucus for Monday but her fiance Kayla is all in for Elizabeth Warren. She's worried about our children and our children's children and what the environmental merriment earth is going to be like at that point because have kids. No we're yesterday. I got my apartment. Were Planning on it. Yeah in time a year. You're after the flood. Anne and Kayla are looking to the future like so many others. We talked with here and after tomorrow's caucuses they'll have a better idea of what that future might look like.
Iowa Farmer Says He's Disenchanted With President Trump
"We've been talking about how exceptional these caucuses are happening tonight for starters. They've never been so many candidates to choose from at least on the democratic side and there have never there has never been an incumbent quite quite as divisive as President Donald. That seems to be making things even more unpredictable here than usual. It's rain and the illustrate that I want to introduce you to rob Ewald. I met him on driving around the eastern part of the state with editor. Dalia todd producer. Taylor Haney you won't is Republican. Who says he is so disappointed in trump he might caucus tonight for a Democrat and understand why RAV has been so disenchanted with the president? It is helpful to understand where he comes from my parents they They bought this in nineteen seventy. It was just bear grass and their pasture. And I gotTa go to Rob's farm just outside Davenport it was just gorgeous ten acres pastures rolling hills all of it covered with snow. It's where they keep some horses and some cows a couple of styles of corn before they ship it to their buyers. He runs a bigger thousand Acre farm. Not far away from where he grows corn and soybeans his crops. The have been strong in recent years but prices are not right now beans or break even at best to raise. We're not buying any new equipment. Were in survival mode. Why is it going to this point? They don't have enough places to sell their beans. I mean some of that has to do with the trade war with China. China's the biggest importer of American soybeans ends and those sales dropped dramatically. Seventy five percents. That drop was in two thousand eighteen and rob thought it was going to be temporary. Me Personally I I was looking at this. This is a short term deal and I'M NOT GONNA pick China over the US. So I'm like yeah. Let's even the stuff out. He's willing to take the hit here right but he's not not just taking the hit on soybeans even more it's rob's corn production that suffering. He is a Republican and he generally votes that way voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen but last fall the president did something that rob cannot get over. I was mad and are still pretty upset about. He's talking about a move. By the trump administration. Last Fall Fall the EPA the Environmental Protection Agency granted these exemptions to dozens of oil producers. So they don't have to make ethanol into gasoline. Ethanol is a biofuel Tomato Corn Oh and by mixing it in. It's supposed to make gas more environment environmentally friendly right but because of those waivers oil refineries stopped buying ethanol or meant that they no longer needed to buy corn from Ron Right. Exactly we're not asking for a whole lot. When we were already getting knocked down from trade the lease the administration she could have done was prop up there and give us something? That's going to go year after year. You know all this stuff is working against him right. It's unpredictable. Well weather patterns which are even more unpredictable now because of climate change there's also trade policy politics plays into all of it and honestly rob is worried that things will get so hard. His his boys won't be able to take over the family farm and make a living. And here's a bit where I get to play cute tape of his eleven year old Isaac taking care of his sources. Can you take the rap down and put it in the barn please it out on my neck. They're just doing tours around the farm and clearly rob so in his element. He's on his farm working with the sun but because things have been so tough financially. He can't be here all the time anymore. He's had to take a part time job driving semi trucks. You know what I don't mind doing it. It's something that the boys what's that you mind it. It does cut into a little bit on family family time and stuff. I have some different hours but you understand why we have to do it right. So that's that's the big thing that they understand and I'm not You know I'm pretty proud. I don't WanNa have to ask for anything. So we make sacrifices. So it's really heartbreaking to hear right it is and it's shaping his political choices here's what he thinks about the Democratic contenders. Some of these just are too extreme for me. There's I just I don't know where were money comes from for some of the projects. It just blows my mind. Do Biden not modern Anna. friel Joe Biden. I don't trust him. You know with what's going on right now with the impeachment. I think trump got caught and maybe biden. That's just the way I look at it and you trust you trust Donald. I didn't say that either. I didn't say that it is and I did. Vote for him right now. Maybe I leave the top box empty to be honest with you because my family and I are in a worse position now than we were four years ago. So it's very difficult to say. I got my vote. Oh so he says he's probably not gonNa vote for the President of music. Is there any other candidate out there. Who would go for you know? He likes Amy Klobuchar. He says she understands agriculture culture and has a good mid Western values. And yes. He says he might show up at the caucus tonight but mainly to watch the spectacle but this is the kind of disaffected Republican and that the Democratic Party Democratic candidates are trying to do one thing. I've learned here in Iowa that when people go in tonight I mean. The results can be really unpredictable. Taboo pray talk things out and and who knows right and it's been we've heard stories about how many people have not yet made up their minds and so things could change once people get in the room tonight at the Caucasus.

"America. This is the roundtable truncates Matiz here. Sunday morning we let our minds wander on Sunday morning and it seems like every newspaper every other day has something about. UFO's with us this morning. Is Peter Davenport Peter is Director of the National UFO point center and keeps a national database for UFO's good morning joining us. Peter how are you good morning John. I'm doing well and I'm delighted to be here with us this morning. Thank you it's nice to be on and bring all all Americans up to date and New Yorkers up today too because I understand There has been a lot of reports at a New York area about. UFO's and tell us what you know. Well I saw that article in the New York Post by Mr Some Alenia Alenia. I think his name is the journalists and I'm delighted to see that good coverage but I'm not sure that it's correct to say the number of reports has doubled tripled I think he was implying from New York state. We're getting a lot of reports he's accurate. The article is accurate in that respect. We're getting about four hundred reports every two weeks Re That's written reports in addition to what we hear over the off off line but there's a lot of activity one of the things that may be contributing to his report is in the recent Asian Pass we have had several launches out of the Out of Cape Canaveral of multiple satellites. And they're passing overhead over people's heads they see them in report them as a UFO whereas they're just a long string of satellites that are being paid paid out by from a central Capsule but they're not UFO's so you believe that. Maybe that's something like that that people looking at the East Coast and Cape Understand. All of that I am. I am having her time understanding. You believe so that it could be some satellites being launched. Oh yes we've taken probably five hundred or a thousand reports about that. Cluster of satellites. In fact there have been two clusters lunch. One was launched on the eleventh of November Veterans Day and the other one was launched. Just recently I I think in late December. I don't know the date exactly. But when they go when they're launched when they go up we sure hear about them What else do you want? I tell you. American people on explained or unexplained circumstances. Well we had a very interesting report on in Oh last month at the came in just recently from a senior pilot he reports that on the twenty first of December. Remember four days before Christmas. He was Flying Seven thirty seven from New York City to San Francisco and he goes on to describe a very interesting event he and his first officers co-pilot saw a cluster. Sure of lights up ahead of them to the West and at first when I read his report I assume that he was one of the many pilots who've reported the satellites that I- looted to earlier in this program but he Goes on to point out that he was in site of these objects for twenty five minutes or so and they were turning on and off in a regular pattern they were above is aircraft he estimated so it was a very good report and He was flabbergasted by. I talked talk to him. Briefly and He said he's never in his twenty one years experience as a airline captain. He's never seen anything quite quite as shocking as what he saw on the twenty first of December because of all the publicity have captains of Airline captains and I guess military Captain's I have been more coming forward. Your the phone is cutting out Johnson. Getting only half the audio I have. You noticed that if the captains of airlines are more coming forward forward since all the licit yes. It's happening more frequently. In fact just two or three days ago I received a call from another another captain who lives on Long Island New York and he had a very dramatic citing. We're awaiting this report is written report we should have it it Posted to our website here By the early part of this week a tele websites are people know about it. Yeah the website site is UFO CENTER DOT COM UFO C. N. T. E. R. DOT COM. And we've got about one hundred twenty three thousand reports posted post to that website and in the last thirty days Which is the most the report that most makes you scratch your head? I think this report from the airline captain is a very good one I rarely get them as well composed and As full full of information as this one was he knew is almost news. Exact position is altitude is his heavy and his Speed he points out for example that they were doing point. Seven nine mock or seventy nine percent of the speed of sound but so He knew he recorded the event. Very at least mentally very effectively. That's a good report. Another report came in Just recently from New Mexico Woman reports that she we saw Several learn stars that appear to be coming out of a mountainside they were spaced Precisely precisely and She goes on to describe how dramatic it was Another one From the third of this month month third of January from Tulsa Oklahoma Gentlemen was sitting in his truck and His wife was admonishing in for staring up at the sky both he and his wife saw a perfectly round from their vantage point perfectly round what appeared to be a blue plate plate shaped object that just streaked across the sky and illuminated the ground around them Quite brightly we're getting reports. It's like this all the time. And they believe me baffled Clearly this is not one that can be ascribed not a report that can be ascribed -cribe to those satellites. I alluded to earlier also. We just received a report from Maine Gentlemen in reported seeing a green or perhaps blue-green object just streak down out of the sky vertically. From.

"Good Morning America. This is the cats round table. John Cats Matiz here Sunday morning. What's going on in our skies with us this morning? Is Peter Davenport he is the director and chairman of the UFO reporting center on Ufo. Items Adams put. I'm good John Boy. Is it nice to be back with you for another another program and to share her. What's been going on in our skies over the last several weeks? It's been pretty active. I know how what do we always getting a lot of calls walls and lots of emails. He always enjoyed listening to you and tell us what's going on. Well I've been out of town for about nine or ten days as I attended my Fiftieth Reunion anniversary from college but During my absence about eight hundred fifty reports piled up and accumulated in our submitted by our online report for here's I'd like to share with our listeners. One report that came in about ten days ago the first of November the gentlemen writes he was carpooling in Columbus Ohio. One morning about six thirty five. Am He apparently was riding. Riding on the right hand side of the car and his attention was drawn to some very bright lights off to his right to the West. Is the car travel south now and at first she thought they were part of an aircraft but very quickly realized that they weren't moving they were hovering motionless. He looked over there and spotted a very large black dark triangle he alleges with white lights lights in the corners and a dim yellow or orange light in the center of the ventral surface of the craft. It was just hovering there. Within a few few seconds he saw it for less than a minute. He estimates it Apparently rotated pointed. It's north it snows. Charge the western sky. I just moved off at a leisurely pace. I wouldn't mention this John if I were not confident of the witness. This and if I had not received countless Similar reports from other reliable witnesses. This is It represents sort of a change in the nature of Ufo reports that has taken place over. I would say the last six months or a year with surprising. Peter that we'd all these high phone cameras that nobody's gotten better better pictures. A iphone cameras are not very good at night. They're good if the slash is close enough to the subject to have an effect but I get many many photographs photographs from people who've taken them with iphones and they're not very satisfying. What I usually see a tiny speck of light against it's too dark sky or if it's daytime citing Blurry tiny figure against the blue sky or cloudy sky so so it's not surprising to me that photos taken with the cell phone or not very satisfied. What we need is more people with single lens reflex cameras to photograph these objects understood? I I understand. In Mesa. The Arizona there was a report that there was a a swear aircraft. Tanggula aircraft size of football field. Don't know the shape of it but here exactly correct John Les Fry last Thursday night at about eight forty four. PM Arizona time that's mountain time time a young woman rights and I've spoken with her. She's very bright very very positive. I'm very confident that she's a good and reliable witness. She wrote in her written report submitted. Just an hour. After the citing that she was standing outside looking at the northern starry sky clear sky and she suddenly became aware that there was what appeared to be a very large object. She said it was three or four times the size of a full moon. That's a very prominent object in the night sky and it had Red Right lights and blue lights on it. The significance of the Blue Lights from investigators standpoint is that tells us all we need to know so with regard to its origin because blue lights may not be displayed on an aircraft under federal aviation regulations after after sundown so it was not a conventional terrestrial aircraft the object seemed to maneuver a bit and I and moved to the North Northeast Sky at a very leisurely pace. She estimates that she's with us it for only sixty to ninety seconds maximum and again if I were not receiving reports like this on a regular basis John I would be a little more skeptical than than I am This was a good report with a very good and sound witness and I'm going to encourage her to approach the press Chris and tried to find other witnesses. Now if somebody sees something you they send you an email. How does it work? Yeah we ask them to use. WHO's the online report for our website which is UFO CENTER DOT com? We have a blank online report for him similar to a job application application. That people may fill out if they believe they've seen a Ufo the other thing we strongly urge them to do is a couple whole things. One is generate some kind of picture or illustration of what it was they saw and also this is most important John go to the press go to the local press share with them. Your written report share with them your illustration and try to get some publicity to encourage other other people. To come forward here's an interesting factoid. About ufology about the sighting of a UFO most people will not the report citing to anyone. We estimate that out of somewhere between ten thousand twenty thousand people who witness a UFO UFO adult competent clear thinking people with normal sensory perception out of ten thousand to twenty thousand people who see a UFO. Oh only one of them will attempt to report it to an organization like the National UFO reporting center. There are other organizations move on mutual UFO network To which they can report these but people are for some reason hesitant to report their citing eighty whether it be a recent sighting or citing from decades maybe down changed now now that the government has acknowledged that does something out there something something exists and that while they say they don't know what it is but something does exist so maybe people are will be less reluctant but Peter were added time time. I wanted to say thank you for coming on Sunday morning. And let's catch up again Wilson. I look forward to the next meeting. John Thank you. This is the cats round table. We'll be right back..
