Yesterday's dini whose professional physics at amazon is taking versity. One of the primary of usage focus is new leaders. Welcome to see you thank you. Yeah thanks for doing this. So i know that you have done a lot of work on neutrinos. You have a few papers. That came out recently. And i want to talk to a twenty eighteen paper dalogue and my own neutrino signatures of primordial black holes. invite you say. These studied primordial black holes ph is as sources of massive neutrinos by hawking radiation under the hypothesis that black holes emit nuclear no bass item states be described quantitatively called the pbs evolution and lifetime is affected by the mass and flew munich dialect my own nature of neutrinos before we get the details celia I wanted to get some definitions of folks would know what black court saw a few episodes of black holes Here we're talking about. The pride won't imprac codes owes The these black holes are fall close to the big bang And then as caulking radiation Sort of The black hole evaporating So to speak and that That lady Imitating these particles called neutrinos. Right is that. Do i understand that correctly. Yes so so pry bhutia blackhaws before we get the neutrinos what is sort of the mechanism of formation their ho- exactly what they have formed sure We believe that Primordial hose could form in the early universe from density fluctuations so We know that any object could can possibly become a black hole if you compress it into a very very small volume so this same process could happen in the universe with Density fluctuations that could be a regional space where there is an over density compared to the surrounding and each of over the east coast past Then then it could get to the point of becoming a black hole This this The details of this process are beyond my expertise But this is fairly reasonable thing to expect and The diesel really small rate in the scheme of things. Yes so when i started to Learn about time or their black holes. I was amazed by how different in mass can be. They can be may be the massive wouldn't but they can also be The mass of Being or they can be Even even smaller so they can really be very very tiny. Yes oh so. That's really really small so this is sort of quantum fluctuations only universe Kind of getting Getting concentrated in vide- small areas But we believe those. Those primordial black holes emit nucleus. we Have to go back to stephen hawking for that stephen hawking wrote this seminal paper Which is about what we nowadays. Nowadays call hawking radiation so he demonstrated that any black hole regardless of what it is could be primordial black hole or a stellar. Nicole doesn't matter any black hole isn't really black because it meets radiations so radiation particles And the the process that we call evaporation so Because a black holes fundamentally gravity objects they would meet any particle that couples to raggedy including trees so It's the moment you have a black hole you do. Have hawking radiation and neutrinos are just that are expected. Part of hawking radiation. You're so caulking radiation so that that happens to every black hole even the even the supermassive ones right so i it said gentle phenomenon And so going to neutrinos now Don't typically thing neutrino site Caltrans and electrons are really well known. neutrinos are particles. Dad don't interact with The matter Espionage don't interact much with matters. We don't really see them. They don't really see them. And and so it's difficult to measure that's right and so so this could you give a. What does the history of neutrino vendor we. I understand such things existed. Let's see We go back to the twentieth century and the story goes That the father of neutrino sees Warfare he. He made the hypotheses of a new particle existing as a way to explain Some strange behavior of neutrinos produced by by nuclear decay so It's it's a long story but Let me just say that For a long time. Neutrinos who just the hypotheses and then around the mead of this twentieth century They would actually officer so we started to Know that this particles existed and But that was pretty much heat. So we didn't know much about the properties And one of these properties the mass which we still don't know i'm easy after all these decades but we still don't know if neutrinos have something like a magnetic went for example And something that we didn't learn until much later on is the fact. That neutrinos oscillate. That's that that sounds. That's something that we that were somehow established Turn of the sanctuary around the around the year. Two thousand really after after decades of of testing with the solar neutrino selling trainers. So there are still there are still a number of no on your trainers. One of them is the mass one and the other one is the The nature of the neutrinos being the iraq particles or miranda particles we She's kind of a fundamental cost. So there are that. That's that's that's related to the fundamental nature of the neutrino as particle break. So so they do. They have a mass but masses small. Do they have a chunk. Neutrinos don't have charge so they are electrically neutral and that's Comedy the biggest reason for for them to be a so allusive as you were mentioning earlier on especially in the in early. Nineteen hundreds all the particle detectors so basically a electro-magnetic detectors they were looking for charge or Magnetic behavioral some sort. So neutrinos don't have that and so they They only have the weak interaction At that that we know wolf and gravity of course and so that's why they They escape detection so so easily because their interaction is very weak. Yeah so so. That's sort of the beauty of neutrinos right so because they don't interact V can go back digits of years. Simple hats Perhaps become pickup one on earth and it would have travelled that distance through all sorts of things but would not have affected wider rate right. Yes and so so the other phenomenon of neutrino is that you mentioned that they also late so are they're failures of tinos they go back and forth. Yes it's It's actually a fairly Easy to this cried kwan to sonam on We know that In quantum mechanics there is this Particles described by these function which is called the wave function. And so the neutrinos could be on. Neutrino could be born as a say an extra and then it's quanta way function would evolve over time in a way that after sometime. The wave function is no longer a purely electron neutrino way function. But the has a little bit or even law actually of a different flavor. It could be a new one or tau. So what we observe in the actors. Is this change of flavor and perhaps the most striking demonstration of this phenomenon is solemn. Neutrinos because we know that the sun produces an extra treatments and It doesn't produce a new on and talion trainers so But here on earth we do Have evidence that the solar neutrino flags that we receive has some You wanna talion. Trina in it and that can only be explained by sedation and Actually after this other neutrino data showed this phenomenon. This was also confirmed by a saint men made experiments so it's a fairly established phenomenon it and so that the flavors are Electron new on tall. Yes that's right and so. Did you understand the vendor made in the sun for example there they are made as electron Neutrinos and by the time they reached the earth day the Immunes dot. Yes yes Impart young. that's that's what happens so ease. It always the case that they get a manufactured so to speak as as electoral neutrinos always. It depends on where they are born. There are places where neutrino sutter born in or flavors. A so it's it's it really varies with With the type of environment We are talking about okay. Okay and so in the people you say ph is this primordial black holes. We talked about radiates right. Handed and left handed dutra knows in equal amounts so anybody right-handed unless the cleaners. Okay let me see so Yes you say. Indicates of dirac neutrinos. pba Left neutrinos in equal amounts possibly increasing deceptive number noon pheno species nest. Yes is that explainable. Yes so right handed than left handed. Neutrinos that may take why to explain what that exactly means me. Just say that It's related to the neutrino mass. So if you're truly knows didn't have a mass which we know they do but if they didn't have a mouse They would only exist as left handed particles which means that basically their spin is Is anti aligned with the momentum and but if they have mass and the iraq particles There could be another type of neutrino which is right handed. Which where the This being ease aligned with a mentor other than anti line and so If you are iraq these these two different species could exist and so instead of having one species of neutrino emitted left-handed one Indicators of a massless trina if we have not suv nutrients than you would have to species and so. The black hole radiate war energy compared to The case when neutrinos don't amass so when we started working on this paper i was interested in this phenomenon that A lot of the literature having to do with a developer. Evaporation of primordial black couls. Consider the neutrinos as massless about. Now we know that they are massive. And so i thought well Sixty speaking at primordial black hole could radiate more energy than previously thought. So i found that aspect interesting and then sees you mention the possibility to increase the effective number of species. That's related to what it was talking about. So then you the black hole would ra- gate more neutrino States or more neutrino Species to spe pseudo speak and then Would increase the number of neutrinos per cubic centimeter Data we observe today so I'm kind of glossing over a lot of these days. But basically cosmology gives us a measurement of this and effective which is called the effective number two species. And if you have this right. Handed neutrinos coming from the primordial black holes. This number could be higher than than expected. And so that would be may be a i way to tell that maybe there are more black holes in the universe yet. So so the hawking radiation essentially creation coming out of black holes Expected defined Expected that over a long period of time. Black holes radiate away lap. Later ray out the mass or information that didn't do it And so this. Radiation is hockey. Radio station is it is a new park. Or is it. Fundamentally composed of neutrinos hawking radiation is made of every particle that no of so A black hole. A camera gate Pretty much everything. Photons neutrinos throngs You loans It said cetera but There is the catch here. The fact that a black hole has a temperature which is another Big achievement of stephen hawking to end and others To that the black hole is thermo dynamical object and so Basically the bigger the black hole the lower the temperature so if the temperature is really low The black hole wouldn't be able to immed- Very massive particles because they are thermal energy would be sufficient for that so because masses energy Mc squared right so because massey's energy If a black hole has too low of a temperature It wouldn't have its quantum energy It's it's Wouldn't be enough to produce the mass off a particular particle for example a proton may be too heavy to be produced by a really low tanto black home so so the beaker. The black called the lower the temperature. Yes ed so. So then can expect the bigger black holes to have more of a neutrino content in radiation. Yes because The bigger black holes would as i said be able to radiate the heavy particles and so they would only be able to radiate away the low mass particles and so there could be black holes that only emit photons gravitons and Neutrinos do a of sort of the distribution of this primordial black holes Isn't you know sort of everywhere. What is what do we know about you. Know some of the distribution of bbc's you mean spatial distribution like where they are now. I'm wondering just like the easy would do sort of look at the early universe will find them everywhere Probably at the beginning they would be a more or less uniformly distributed Bug in the universe. Today they would probably be Behaving like the dark matter. Does they would Be part of galactic halos In other words they would be they would class gravitationally on large structures like a like a galaxy placido galaxy so these call still around They would they would behave like like the dark matter down. So they would be in in halo. Galaxies would have by. Now have april would would they not have disappear because it far it depends on the mass That they have when they are born so their if their mass is less than a certain value that trying to remember Basically yes they would have to By now they would have completely evaporate did their masters larger than they will take longer to evaporate and they could still be around So they roughly speaking the dividing line between a black hole. Steve being around today or not. I think it's something like ten to fifteen grams fiery recall correctly into fifteen clams though So this paper. Eusebio obtained the diffuse flux of right hill. Neutrinos from his idea and so so. So so the nikkei actually act to build these neutrinos. They'd be flying here do pbs specifically In principle that's a possibility we Considered that for certain Masses of these black holes and certain density of this black holes the flux of neutrinos that they generate over time could be fairly large and so we could Detect these neutrinos If we had a very Power who attacked so Now life is never ideally in the sense that a real Ut detector have substantive issues like ground And so on. So at the end of the people we conclude that impact is giving given the limitations that current nutrient doctors have It may not really be possible to detect neutrinos trump mortgage black holes but people. That's a possibility and that alone is interesting. Yeah because they suggestion that this primordial black holes could be as as you mentioned could be part of the dark matter that yes to seeking. Is that still About us that has been. There has been a debate on these Kind of going back and forth in the scientific community The latest i heard is that Black whose could be part of the dark matter. Maybe even a large part but probably not they entire dark matter so a one hundred percent primordial Battery is a bit difficult to justify the day. experimental bowels that we already have constrained so various types but there could be scenarios where maybe a fraction of the dark matter. He's made of primordial black holes. I wanted to go into a ended up paper in twenty twenty supernova neutrinos directional sensitivity and prospects for dissertation here the export potential of current and future liquid cinta league neutrino detectors. I decade old town. Mass a localize a super a supernova neutrino signal into sky in douglas was feeding the core collapse nearby star tens to hundreds of english Coated and don't be constructed policy in the detector can be used to estimate a direction to the star so so this is now neutrinos from supernova and You so so we. We have Idea here that before this opened on what happens. If please open over a time period it is creating neutrinos that could pick up and and potentially get ready to see the super bowl. Yes that's what excites me The fact that Think about bitter jews. Beetlejuice is the most famous nearby star. That could go supernova anytime and we don't know when that's going to happen and If it wasn't for these neutrinos that our paper is about we will know until the style literally Collapses and and then soon after becomes superman but in this paper we we Show that before the star collapses which is the beginning of the supernova process We can detect these. These neutrinos That are used at that at that stage and so increase the pool we could know that You know tomorrow. These days beetlejuice exploding and that that would be quite exciting. Yeah it's beetlejuice is is red joy and reasonably close to was really big star. I can remember Cecilia there was some suggestion that It could go supernova within something one hundred fifty thousand years which is obliquely in cosmic time so it is getting ready to go to Supernova right yes. I am not you formed about exactly the number of years give or take but it's it's ready it's ready. It could be any time and any time any time for an astronomer muse anytime the next thousand soviet so we should. We should hold their breath. But it's ready could be tomorrow. It could be in a hundred years could supernova. I know that this is not part of the paper but could the beetlejuice supernova avenue adverse effect on north really know a supernova is very very spectacular event. it's it's a star that collapses so it implodes i and that explodes and then when he explodes It's very bright. In the case of bitter jews we could. We could see by naked-eye shore but in terms of A fact of each radiation and neutrinos in light on on us and on our daily activities. It wouldn't it. Wouldn't affect them in any way so it's a save Show to just enjoy without any worry. Great answer so you talking about supernova neutrinos so so can be actually detect neutrinos from supernova. What different from what we talked about in the previous people Different from pbs I'm not sure. Can you repeat yes. So the new teen emanating from a supernova different from the Neutrinos of expectancy from a primordial black hole. Yes the the different In many ways disney trails have higher energies. So it's much much easier to attack them and indicates will beat the jews. We would detect thousands or even more of dan millions. Probably of them Indiana so different in the way they are born because in our primordial black hole ordinary black hole The processes volcanoes the asian. Which which is a gravity phenomenon in a supernova. You're born out of the very hot and dense environment That the that that the star as after it has collapsed so star collapsing on its own way to become very dense and so In this very dense in hot environment nuclear processes take place that produce these nutrients. So i guess the main difference is that indicates supernova it's most nuclear phenomenon and in the call is really fundamentally a gravitational sonam. Okay you discover technique in this paper and you saved sin principle possible unique the identify the progenitor star so So the existing technology and ideas discussed in the paper viki see teacup a neutrino decode. Identify valid came from or what direction thing from embed you can go back and look at the in that direction if he find to supernova then you could say that the supernova that created in-principle Yes let me. Just say that There are situations and this is not one of them but there are situations where if you have one neutrino you can point to the pointing the sky. What came from in these case. It's a little more complicated. Because what really gives us. The information is the statistical distribution of these nutrients so we are talking about may be the tax in hundred a hundred Gable take from say be for example and What did detector really observe is not the neutrino is kind of a vector which is related to the products of these neutrinos so this neutrino sues interacts with the interact with the detector. And then out of this interaction you have a positive on the new thrown and those can be observed and you can you can create a factory using these two and then and then these rector will have a certain orientation but each each neutrino coming will give you a differently oriented vector but statistically if you look at the distribution of these factors you you can tell you can you can do for with a certain of course The direction of the neutrinos because these vectors are not uniformly distributed they are they have a non uniform distribution of the direction. And so using this information we can we can define a regional the sky where The new three could come from so we can. We cannot now down to a point but we can now down to maybe a cone of a few tens of degrees Width and then we look in that cone and see what stars that com and maybe be juicy one of them. Yeah so As you say you if you see a few Neutrinos Statistics bution of those will give us some some probability That it is in in some region of the sky. And then you say the paper You can then that if it is happening please open nola. You learnt other observational. Modalities multi messagero rations Invisible in radio and other other types of observations Do actually pick up more data so this is almost like a early alert system If it is in place right yes i would call it a very early I learned to because it's we're talking about maybe our worse or insert very fortunate cases. We are even talking about maybe day Before the assad goes supernova and. so that's enough time to plan for for it so a something that fascinated me When i heard about this from a from a an experimentalist is that there is a human factor which was not aware of but The factories so if you have come up with thirty minutes to plan for watching supernova this may not be enough because it just takes stein to make phone calls and get a hold of people and and decide what to do. Come to a consensus in that. I saw in addition to technical things. Like okay have to maybe turn your telescope Direction which takes time. But i i was really fascinated by the human factor. Those things that if you had style we'd be you can kind of gathered. Relevant people decide something but if you have thirty minutes or or or minutes maybe not so. Yeah yeah i wondered. If such a earlier system is in place Perhaps could be something programmatic. Crises is picking up And you have some you know. Maybe some ai techniques or something like that that identifies the region and it goes. Programmatic returned the telescopes look. Yes yes exactly so. There could be a protocol in place For that so e if a telescope was suitable for observing a nearby supernova which which is not always the case than than now that we showed that it's possible to know beforehand if a star is going to go supernova then there could be some sort of protocol in place already so that when the alert comes which is we can just activated the protocol and oriented telescope. maybe automatically will in some sort of Organized way yeah as you say if you remove humans from the process it becomes not better there is actually already working this direction It's called this new two point. Oh a network which has to do with Exactly these using neutrinos as alert for the astronomy community and That has to do with exactly a creating alerts and also creating protocols for how to react to an alert rate. I want to end the people that just came out. it concordant scenario for the observation of neutrino from the tidal disruption. Even eight hundred twenty nine hundred ninety s t You say be induced at phenomenology concordance canadia with the logistic jet of for the title disruption event Between ninety s jesmyn proposes a source of the astrophysical neutrino event. Ice cube So the title disruption even this is star getting cooler into a black hole getting Getting sucked in rate is that the is that even up to the match yes This is something that we We had about be in in popular science stalks What what happens if you get too close to black hole and It's kind of scary. So the answer is you would be ripped apart because your feet will be pulled in with a strong force than your head and these. This is what happens to two statehouse. Use the star gas to close than by guests Ripped the park. Which is what the tied is option means and so instead of a star Rotating around a black hole we just have a stellar stellar That dr intially. I created by the black hole and so This is something that The happy neighbor cops serve did so so we have. This does happen this particularly Eighty twenty nine hundred ninety s and Bequeath actually see a new cleaners from that particular even so tightness. Deduction events are fairly well established phenomenon in astronomy. We have many of them served They they are Fairly a common plays events But what's special about this particular one. Eighty two thousand nineteen years. G is that We could let's say It could have Produced on neutrino that was detected a ice cube so eighty twenty nine hundred ninety s. She is the first either direction event. For which is coincident. Neutrinos detected a dice. Cube in queens. This coincidence is likely to be accidental. So on approachability estimate tells us that these coins. This is pretty causal not accident so eighty twenty nine hundred ninety. The g could be the parent of this neutrino. And that's that's that's a i. That's very interesting. Yes i skew. is a is a big ice cube in the in. The south is I'm not sure it's exactly cuba. But it's it's the biggest block of is which has been Eastern With values Small detectors So it's it's an array of swarner detectors but yeah it's basically a big block of ice which has been transformed into a detective and so so the idea that this high energy neutrinos from what they were System montemar even that happened Out there this high energy neutrinos passing through that ice q. believe some telltale signs All of that happening and yuxi picked up Then began back Just like you were talking about the previous creeper begin. Please back to a region so this is one of those cases where you can tell from a single neutrino of course the with with a narrower where you can tell the point in the sky where three neutrino kate from. It's doable with one single neutrino because this high energy neutrinos when they enter the is They produce ca a shower so they kind of illuminate. They you me nate. The is but the do it in a way which is very much Beat so and then and then the direction of the the direction of bigotry knows. We have a pretty good accuracy often. How often could be a pickup something like that. Do we have an estimate of how often that would happen. Meaning ice cube detects something like this. Every year ice cube the tax Of the order of ten high-energy neutrinos froth outside our galaxy. Tadesse the number for the entire crop of neutrinos that ice cube has It went we talk about tidal disruption events in the specific these are fairly rare phenomena and so they estimated that maybe a few times so percent of the entire neutrino flux the thais cubeys of serving could be from tidal disruption events. Not much more than that. So we are talking about less than half of the total flats being to tell this option events okay and so the tug disruption burned as as you mentioned It starts getting clipped applaud and pulled back into a into a a black hole but this ten percent. Do they have to be these braces as they call it. The things that have a jet that is sort of lying towards us. Is that it necessarily condition for these types of high energy neutrinos. It's it's a plausible scenario Let me just say that. There is an important difference between blazers in tidal disruption events. In the fact that the ablaze is something that has a jet. She's always on so the jets kinda kerman feature of of these particular galaxy but the title is adoption. Event is transient events. Saw dotcoms creates the accretion. This accretion of the star of the black hole produces flair is flair can last year or two but then it would just fade away so There could be jet and in fact in our paper we present where there is a jet so they partisans the user chat But if there is a jet in tiger disruption event. That's a transient suggested. That's born when This starts to create the stellar debris. And then it's on for months or years and then and then shuts off and it has two point in our direction as you as you mentioned because otherwise we would. We would see the trains your so this high energy neutrinos sillier how. How many orders of magnitude are we talking about coming to the one set you pick up. Let's say from the sun I'm not sure about the question. Can you maybe rephrase yet. So when you say this high energy neutrinos that is coming from let's say a tidal disruption events or something like that How much comedy orders of magnitude more energy Outdoors come to you. Know the ones that might be created the sun a lot menu of this magnitude so It is a big difference. So the sun produces new three meals. over a wide range of energies Higher energy neutrinos from the sun reach energies of the order of ten am pt and mega awards and for the ice cream. Neutrinos we are talking about one hundred of the older one hundred t. v. or even thousand teams. Which would be p so. Let's say maybe eighty tortoise magnitude finding the mass rife or okay and so this e. v. measure it is actually measuring the mass of the neutrino of newfield. Now these these neutrinos are have such a Such high energy that basically It's impossible to know their mass Because because as i said massey's energy so they talk energy of neutrino Detected is to be so high that that percentage view to its mass east so tiny that this practice mutual so i was wondering if we know the energy couldn't be sort of back computer to save the mass is or it doesn't follow The reasoning is a bit different and The way to sink about this is perhaps they let me see the formula for energy particle Which used the rest energy Applause the kinetic energy and So connecticut is so high that he thought the overwhelms direct energy. So it's it's and of course every time you measure the energy when three no. There is a narrow associated with the measurement so You we can't really we can't really tell what What led the boss of the detroit news but both roughtly this. This appears to be sort of an early warning system for many many things right topped the supernova the in the title disruption events producing heightened plano's So this could be sort of inundated with a monkey message. Observations protocols as you mentioned that gives us a higher success. Wait suspect. I would think certainly nominated be one right That's the power of multi messenger astronomy the integration of different signals coming from Photos tree knows navigation waves Causing me craze and Danger plays very powerful emmanuel cases and maybe supernova case is the most striking Xenos come first. But that's not always the case So in the indicates of tidal disruption events Did you know that was observed. Came about five months later than the initial dhammika looser version of the tidal disruption events so It's if it can go both ways. neutrinos can be early alert or they only alert could be for example a radio salvation or or an x-ray use ovation and then and then the neutrino attacked or could Focus a surge in that direction as see what they find which which has actually been done ice cube sometimes. Does these these archival. Search this on the basis of others from From for example x ray or gamma ray surveys interested. Exciting eighty that said a lot to be owned It seems It seems like these till don't know all the production mechanisms for neutrinos but if we have robust with to pick them up on than we can place them back and and talk asking questions What might be there definitely So yes so. People celia the next five years Wanted the aid is that you believe Be will make a significant crocus in this Innovative neutrinos then two different areas. That a very promising One is Broadly speaking Manmade nutrients so there is. There is a big push especially hitting the united states to build Create very powerful beams of trainings and then these beams are manmade. So we know that very well. We know that energy we know the composition and we can use them to learn about The properties of treatments and then That other men bead neutrino experiments where Scientists look for the between months so that's also very promising In something i really. I really excited about that. That may be a furious novel with noble the neutrino mass us from these very high position laboratory experience. Then there is the whole Topic of neutrinos as part of the mouth of mike messenger astronomy and in that area. I think what was was to look forward. To among other scenes is the interplay gravitational waves shock waves. You still Somehow a science of its own into a large extent but there are so many possible connections. We've neutrinos tidal disruption adoption events should produce reputation ways so baranov shoot us gradation ways So so there is. There is a a lot of potential there which is still unexplored in and that's where i see myself Working on in the next few years you adjust very quickly The do gravitational waves travel bid closest and new ashtrays and so if If they both are produced in In uneven they're expected to arrive on earth close to simultaneously. It depends on the timing of the production if the answer is yes the waves ending a knows are born at the same time which may not be exactly true because the physics that governs tation waves is different from the one that that governs neutrinos. So but the difference in timing would be the difference Accumulated that birth But but the two were were generated genetically the same time. They should arrive the same time. Just thinking this a systematic difference in the production time than guan lorries given early warning for the other. But that doesn't seem to do a case right. There could be cases where significant lag in the production of rotation way with respect to the production of the tree nose and one example is. We haven't touched on this before but let me just nation mergers so if we have if we have a merger for example we have maybe a merger of a neutron stars or black hole neutral star before the merger happens so when the two objects that kind of still approaching each other we should start observe serving ways and this is what this is what has been seen so Delight experiment observes these these nominal But if we have a merger After the merger has occurred and the two objects have become one than a. Dan could be the formation of of over an accretion disk and he secretion Trainers which we can which we can back so the neutrino We come After they initially asian waves and so relation as would be the alert for the neutrino.

Apple leads $50m investment in music distributor UnitedMasters
"Apple has led a fifty million dollars series. B in music distributor united masters again leading the round alongside other usual suspects like a sixteen z. An alphabet this is notable because while apple does do acquisitions all the time they tend to rarely do venture investments according to dan per mak. The last time apple participated in venture capital round. Much less lead. One was a two thousand seventeen investment in detroit. Shing quoting techcrunch. If you're unfamiliar with united masters it's a distribution company launched in two thousand seventeen by steve stoute a former interscope and sony music executive the focus of united masters is to provide artists with direct pipeline to data around the way that fans are interacting with their content and community allowing them to connect more directly to offer tickets merchandise and other commercial efforts united masters also generally allows artists to retain control of their own masters. Neither of these conditions are at all typical in the music industry. In a typical artists deal recording companies retain all audience and targeting data as well as masters this limits and artists ability to be agile taking advantage of new technologies to foster a community currently united masters has deals with the nba espn tiktok twitch and others that allow artists to tap big brand deals that would normally be brokered by a label and manager. It also has a direct distribution app that allows publishing to all of the major streaming services. More importantly artists can check stream fan and earnings data at a glance and
NFL owners approve 17-game regular season, 3 preseason games
"A 17 game to the NFL schedule is Official. The 40 Niners will play at the Bangles. The FC will get the extra home game this year. And next year, the NSC and etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Not that it was unforeseen. But what do you think, anyway? We kind of knew it was the owners vote. I assume it was 32. Nothing unless Mike Brown abstained. I don't know how that guy ever had any Children. Maybe it was 31 old and one. I don't know. But he held Davis as well. That's why I only had one child. He abstained all the league votes. So we knew it was going to be the Bangles. So the 40 Niners this year will play the NFC North. So the Packers and Vikings air coming to Levi's in the 40 Niners are going to Chicago and Detroit. Eagles because of the common record will be the other. NFC team as well. That will be on the away schedule and they're planning a F C South, which means a trip to actually land is coming to us. Indianapolis's coming To us. And then on what else is happening there? Uh, Houston is coming to us as well. Um and then on the road, it's Tennessee and Jacksonville. And the 17th game is gonna be pretty kidney. Obviously, the three within your own division home in a way, like every year. We knew it was gonna be the Bangles and the way it works this year, they're just lining up. Conferences. So the A F C East is playing the NFC East E A. F. C North is playing the NFC West, and that's the 40 Niners and Bangles. They have C south, playing the NFC South E A. S E West is playing the NFC North. And I'm gonna go back and forth on which conference gets the extra home game, and this year it'll be the FC.

When a record number of women were elected to office, she flipped a Michigan State Senate district in the suburbs of Detroit. Your first interview you're very hungry. Seven weeks ago, she gave birth to her first daughter. No. Uh uh. She's like the size of the microphone. You know, Like many parents, McMorrow is taking time off to be with her newborn. But while state employees get 12 weeks of paid time off, there's no parental leave policy for lawmakers. The answer to their constituents and their pay is written in the state constitution so they can technically take off as much time as they want The catch being they miss votes. I can't vote remotely. I can't proxy vote. I have to physically go toe Lansing. And I have a newborn who naps for 20 minutes and then is up again and ready to eat and be changed. Michigan is one of a handful of legislatures where lawmakers worked full time. Senator Vic Morrow said she spoke up because she could already envision attack outs criticizing her for not being in the capital to vote vote She missed so she could spend time with her baby. Are we comfortable with the idea? That we don't want working moms in the Legislature because that's the message unless we change the system, she says.

Dan Gilbert announces plan to invest $500M in Detroit neighborhoods
"$500 million to revitalize Detroit's neighborhoods over the next 10 years. At a press conference, Gilbert said today's announcement is a doubling down on our commitment to Detroit, its people its mayor, It's Council, it's county executive in its future. Expect this first investment to impact every neighborhood across the city through the Gilbert Family Foundation and rock community Fund. We hope this half billion dollar investment will touch every single detroiter in some way, shape or form. The first investment will be $15 million targeted toward 20,000 homeowners who have unpaid property Texas The city admitted to overcharging Detroit property owners to the tune of $600 Million Unpaid taxes, Gilbert said, helped move the city into blight when people walked away from their homes because they couldn't afford them.

The number one way to show you care and connect with clients
"Eileen welcome to the show as a way of getting status tolls about yourself. Thank you hello. Brian great to meet you. Thanks for having me on this show. So i am the founder and ceo packed with purpose. We are a corporate gifting company with a social mission so we provide an alternative to the traditional corporate but all of the products in our gift boxes do good so they create a social impact in how to come up with this idea. Yes so my background has been wonderful. Dance between social impact in business and marketing. So a few stops along the way. I was a peace corps volunteer years ago in paraguay then also worked in social impact advisory work so right. Before i started packed with purpose i was actually consulting to chief sustainability officers in marketing executives. Trying to help them figure out how to invest their corporate social responsibility dollars to both have a business return but also a societal impact so it was a typical cold day in chicago in december and our office was riddled with ubiquitous holiday. Gift and i was just looking around saying there's gotta be a better corporate gift. There's gotta be way for a vendor or a client to say thank you. And that's when. I had the initial idea behind putting together gifts where all products had a really unique story and actually contributed to the greater good in their community. Cool and so. How do you start. Where do you start. Well i i always say you just have to start somewhere and it's definitely not perfect but you have to start and if you start talking out loud and getting people's feedback you can hopefully start taking it down the path of what eventually your target market is going to be interested in so I actually founded the company in two thousand and sixteen. And the way i got it. Initially off the ground was put together a really low fidelity prototype so i- crowd. Sourced logo came up with a name but together that was passable and i had a first birthday party for my daughter and is a parting gift to all of my friends in the adults there i gave them a pack perfect gift and i told them that i'd be following up with them for a five to ten minute market research call to basically elicit their responses into get their thoughts so that was the first version of packed with purpose as we know it. Obviously it's evolved a lot. Since then where do you find the people generating the gifts. Yeah so we affectionately. Call our suppliers purposeful purveyors and our purveyors primarily are based all over the states so their social enterprises or purpose driven companies in l. a. Detroit chicago miami. I can give you a few examples because it really helped bring it to life so that people can and how are gifts created an impact so we were with the wonderful social enterprise. Right outside of washington. Dc that works with women who might have previously been homeless. They might have various various to To employment they could also have been survivors of abuse in their part of this incredible social enterprise at basically teaches than baking and cooking skills through the production of various products that they make like granola cookies which we then source for gifts. And it's a way for them to get their safe certification so that they can find gainful employment actually land on their feet half financial stability when they graduate from the program so we're the recipients of their products that we carried in our gifts or another example. There's a wonderful organization that provides employment to adults with disabilities and they make a whole range of cookies than toffees chocolate covered pretzels. And it's through both the housing program and a personal professional development program to these adults with disabilities and we source those products in our in obviously in are providing them with all of those amazing opportunities through that organization. How do you find your clients. Yeah so you know. One dominated do the work that i've been doing. I was exposed to a lot of social enterprises through my particular job and it's really a tight ecosystem so we started working with some organizations. Let's say in detroit. They would ask us. We'll have you heard of these other ones or when we worked with an organization that may be served a particular population whether it was youth or women or individuals that were previously homeless. You know there's a tight ecosystem where they wanna help each other. So i would say if i. It was a lot of referrals Also then his evolved towards a lot of the research that we do in that were looking for you know certain types of organizations where they have to have truly a high level of impact. They have to have high quality products. Whether it's something that you're consuming or it's highly functional like a journal or tumbler. it's gotta look good

This show full credit to the detroit news for first reporting this but it looks like we might have that detroit incinerator which has been shuttered since sometime in twenty nine hundred get demolished the the demolish work on that starting as early as the summer. That would be fantastic. News someone who lives in midtown It has lived in the area for for several years. You know that incinerator more than just being an eyesore. It literally gave off a horrible stench depending on where the wind was blowing. It's not like it. Was you know unnoticed. A walking down woodward in midtown or even towards the the culture center senator dia that thing was not only an eyesore but it was a a nose sore as well. And i think it presents a great opportunity to develop that land a few years ago before all of this started i actually lived in Cultural center a few blocks from detroit institute of arts. And you could always tell when it's going at least once a week. It was something that i could see if i went out to the sidewalk. I could see the smoke stack or the whatever. It's not a smokes back. But you know what i mean the scrubber whatever anyway it was something that you could tell every once in a while on the weekends especially the weekends where it would be like. Oh well this is. This is not good. You know it was. it's terrible. it's an incinerator. We don't have to sugar coated or try and explain to me what it is. It burned trash and garbage and gave off a the stench of burning trash and garbage. I have to. I have to say that probably anything that goes in there will be an improvement over what was what was there in sitting there and it opens up a large plot of land..

I'll put a link to it in the show notes wage, but for context it costs $180 million dollars to construct it about two decades ago. The old Art Van headquarters on 14 Mile between Mound and Van Dyke in Warren is now the home of the corporate offices of loves furniture and mattresses built with fresh dollars and out of home of the fall and Metro Detroit icon loves will hire five hundred people at their HQ. They will also serve as their distribution center and the numbers here are kind of crazy. There is 5.7 million square feet of storage space there with a million square feet of offices. They expect to have a hundred and fifty million dollars in business flow through this property. One thing that they mentioned in the Press materials is quote clear and easy pricing one of the things that was annoying and outdated about art van was their absurd sales. The sale price was always what they actually wanted to charge and the sale percentage is just change all of us kind of figured it out in the internet age and then we just kind of thought it was lame. So I'm glad they're doing something different. Hopefully this works out better because there's a lot of jobs attached to it..

"Detroit has a talent gap and and a skills gap and this isn't unique to the city. It's impacting the region and the state as well. So how do we get people to work. What are some of the things to be done about it and how to do it under the current system which as much as some wanted to change it? It's the world. We live in right now without saddling people with puns of debt. Jose is the Director of workforce and Community Development for Washtenaw Community College. And as someone who's both dealt with the city directly a former job at a Detroit based nonprofit and now now working for a community college regionally he brings an interesting perspective. That conversation from the Detroit Policy Conference right after we think our members on patriarch who make the show possible symbol like Alvar. Your support really matters and thank you so much. He joins Colin Mike. Cathy and others at Patriotair Dot com slash daily Detroit so without further. Ado Jose Reyes Jose. Welcome to daily Detroit. Thank you pleasure to be here so I wanted to talk to you. Because workforce development like workforce. That's a fancy word for getting people jobs right well. It's actually more than that okay. Let's talk about that. You know workforce development. I think in some respects Max that is just getting folks. Jobs is the most cursory understanding. Okay workforce development really is understanding the supply and demand chain and again think about it workforce development is based on employer demand supply and demand chain the job seekers out of talent supply and so in the employers are where the demands are in for the skill sets and so for me is a eco-system with the educational provider somewhere in the middle In terms of Skilling up individuals so what is the state of that demand right now in our region is not just in our region I would say even nationally we have two issues at bay day. One is the skills gap which has been referred to as individuals. They're currently in the labor force. Not Matching up to where the new jobs and new technology is taking the jobs that they currently have so employers are looking how to skill up there individuals that they currently have in the talent pipeline. But at the same time we we also have a talent gap which is simply we have folks that are trickling out of their jobs as they are being you know reaching age of Retirement and whatnot and and we don't have enough folks coming into the talent pipeline and so those individuals eighteen to twenty nine we. Detroit in particular has one of the lowest labor participation rates of anywhere in the nation. Wow Yeah so you're talking. Forty seven percent labor participation. A healthy a City probably show where between sixty five to seventy percent labor participation. That's kind of stunning. Why is that well? I think part of that. We're looking at what's going on. Maybe at this city city of Detroit level within the city. Is that you also have epidemic poverty. You actually have the highest poverty in city of Detroit without any any regard for any other city There's no other city in America that has higher poverty than the city of Detroit. And so we think about that has huge what I call residual effects so again folks are poverty. Don't necessarily get the educational opportunities and as such we have generational cycles of poverty have continued Y also. No and I hear this from my listeners. All the time. There's a lot of people that either that are rather frustrated with the amount of debt that they're carrying and then also looking at opportunities going. Well am I going going to have to go and get like a huge amount of loans to be able to become you know more employable and to me. It feels like there are a lot of opportunities. Enfield's that maybe wouldn't take much so that's an interesting point. So one of the first things is that for folks that are outside the labor force career pathways and understanding of career. Pathways is huge. One of the things I did as the CEO of Detroit and point solutions was actually invest into technical Education Centers in partnership with Randolph Technical Education Center was the first place that I actually worked on trying to create a polytechnical school. That would the open for the youth during the day but in the evening be open to the adult so the parents in those communities because this is generational from this standpoint so we wanted to make sure that folks understood where these career pathways are and then provide equity track for them to actually obtain the the skill set that they need it and again I think you know you know we talking off off off the Mike you know. When we're dealing with folks me this opportunity because again to unite somebody with a better quality of life? We know jobs in the economic wellbeing are two critical factors to be able to achieve that quality of life that individuals in their family deserve. And so we wanted to be sure that we can give folks those opportunities and I think there is this well always been this conception that to obese. Assess what you got to go to college in the bottom line is you can make a six figure salary without having six figure debt if you were to go into a skill trade great like an apprenticeship for you know for skilled trades like a pipe fitter carpenter because there's still a demand is more of a demand today than it was. There's so much demand Matt I mean think about specifically in my north neighborhood there now trucks and crews from other states coming to work on homes and to me. It's kind of crazy crazy. I mean I. It is the concept of journeyman right because people they travel for this work but it is predominant. It is something where I'm looking there going. Wow wait a second. That's a broke broke Brooklyn area code. I look at the plate and I'm like. Oh Wow that's Philip like Pennsylvania. What are they doing? Working on House rehabs in the city of Detroit but I talk to be live and talk to the people doing it. Some of them are not major project. Owners they're just a couple from somewhere or whatever they're like we could not get workers or people would tell. Tell me there's a six month. I had something done on the house. I live in and the contractor literally said well I can see you again maybe in June on and that is just not going to work for People Jeremiah spoke to that in real detail. which is you know? The construction skilled trades is really a agile group of individuals. They go there where the projects are with opportunities are and so you know I think you know Detroit at point time when it was you know. Detroit prior to World War or two was one of the richest cities in the world and one of the largest is still right. One hundred thirty nine square. Miles is one of the largest cities in America as well. But you know I think thinks some things have happened. Pulse war to that out on the economic downturn as a result a lot of our construction skilled trades journey. Men's went to where those opportunities were or we're at that time so some went down to the state of Texas and started to build up those areas as Atlanta came on so we lost a lot of that skilled trade Labor Labor that we had and they went to the where the opportunities are now. Because the city is in this resurgence and it's building itself up in reinventing itself it now l. has need for that talent. You know we saw it with district. Detroit when I was in the workforce a Detroit Employment Solutions You know we have twelve thousand folks come through our portal looking for opportunities construction skill traits so as more you know opportunities for development go on more and more folks get that idea that hey I want to be part of that well and it's not just limited to construction I mean I see companies like quicken and IT companies technology companies. All trying to hire and find people and and I mean a lot of them are having a heck of a time doing it. You know it's funny. You mentioned that you know one of the things that I did once. We got the what we call the Detroit Register Apprenticeship Program Program or D wrap as it was affectionately known as underway the other piece I looked at as we're the we're the hot jobs were it healthcare and so we started looking at. Can we apprentice size those opportunities in a way or create special initiative. So one of the things we did was create tech higher. It was actually a initiative by the of Obama Administration but we took some anchor employers that were in the region that had technology needs and did eight week boot camps. We then spun off of that and I call.

Oh I haven't tried that one another really good spot had only been there once But I had a Burrito. There's a lot of raw food on the menu there but it was fantastic a really good fresh food I remember Joe Hakeem from back in the hungry hungry dudes days set me off to that place and I saw a tweet from him that said that he he swore by that place and so I tried it staying in Royal Oak one of my favorite restaurants period period like meat or otherwise is in season cafe. I love that restaurant. I think they do a fantastic job. It's a fairly small menu but they everything they make is just like you can taste the love and the food. It's fresh You know well prepared food very flavorful very tasty head back downtown there save. Aw Aw of course in midtown. I'm all about that general sells cauliflower. Yeah save is safe house good. You know it's the Detroit outpost of a longtime Ann Arbor Vegetarian in staple restaurant. You know it's been in business since the seventy S if I remember correctly also the only recommendation off the top of my head that has a full bark. It's always a good thing you know. I used to be a vegetarian for many years. I was never vegan but I was vegetarian. And you know we're blessed in the Detroit area with a wealth of Middle Eastern restaurants which is a very vegetarian friendly cuisine as is Indian. And there's a lot of good Indian restaurants in parts of Metro Detroit Anyway I think Indian food is is largely vegetarian to begin with and it's super flavorful. Vegetarian food so I don't think that greenspace leaves a you know a a desert or void. Necessarily I haven't been there. My wife was a big fan of have greenspace. I'M GONNA try to get in there before they closed because it has been on my list. I know she's upset about it because she really liked that place. You're talking about Indian food. I gotta give a new recommendation. nationlly recently discovered by me but I have multiple friends. Who Vouch for this place? It's actually in Northville across from the Sheraton out there. All right. It's called Daba Indian cuisine and it is in a BP gas station of all places and it's got a wide variety of dishes there well executed. It's it's a total carry out place. I guess there's a couple couple of chairs that are shared with the gas station. Here's a deal and you know that I love this combination of like the gas station. It's such a Detroit yet. So Detroit the tasty burgers and Dearborn. There's a bunch of places I I just. I is so quintessentially metro-detroit well then if you're fan of that checkout Mr Kebab in Berkeley I'm not sure what the gas station affiliated with is. I've never been there but I've had their food and because a friend of mine's a is a huge fan of it and it is indeed Worthwhile for sure. Mr Kebab in Berkeley Detroit is a desirable place to be. According to a reason. Poll of a thousand Americans a website called the storage space says as they commissioned a poll asking people if they could move anywhere in the country. Where would they move to in two thousand twenty on the list of twenty cities Detroit at number eighteen? And that's is GONNA be right between Albuquerque New Mexico at Seventeen and Bozeman Montana at nineteen which I've learned the intervening time. I finding this out that Bozeman is apparently growing like crazy. Like who knew it must be all the people moving there to be dental floss. Tycoons you ever heard that Frank Zappa Song. Oh my that. The nineteen seventy one. I think seventy seventy one anyway. Now the reason given to move to the city because and this is a direct quote it's perfect for hipsters. I what's what's that mean. I'm not sure. Does that mean that like is that like. Are you counting all people who like pour overs. Because then I think we're both hipsters. What does that mean exactly? I have no idea. I don't know it's Bozeman. Good for hipster sue or Albuquerque. But here's the thing I have learned that in the intervening time facebook commenters do not like hipsters Okay storage space sites greater downtown's low comparative rent to other big cities which although one thousand seventy five bucks is high for most current city residents and let's face it most metro detroiters. It's a bargain for New Yorkers and others who are used to paying a lot more for a lot less in square footage I mean span you and I have both been through New York and other places. Prices are much higher there. I mean you can get a place for certain amounts of money. But YOU'RE GONNA get tiny little tiny little places allow me to introduce myself represented. The rent is too damn high party anecdotally. When I lived in midtown a couple of years ago it seemed like pretty much every new neighbor Svend van? That was moving in wasn't from the BURBS. But and in fact the people who would tour rentals and other places if they were from the burbs normally they would settle on like Grosse Pointe or Ferndale n'dale or Dearborn or something but the folks moving in they were like from New York Chicago. Seattle San Francisco that kind of thing. I know that's like completely legally anecdotal but it just something I've noticed being here and a lot of those folks were moving in for jobs that say quicken or like some people that we know actually they. They were keeping their west or east coast salary and living in Detroit which working. Yeah which gives you a huge economic advantage around here anyway in the story. I got to braise them for shoutouts to stand by skip astro coffee and batch brewing. What I'm about to say is no knock against them? I actually enjoy those places quite a bit. But there's more to the city than just those places I mean. There's like so much more to the city for that like always keep getting written up anyway rounding out the top three on. The list are Franklin in Tennessee. Atlanta Georgia which by the way apparently is good for singles and the top billing goes to high low Hawaii which sounds amazing looking at the multiple inches of snow outside my window right now Atlanta and high low make sense. I have to Google. Franklin Tennessee even is up. That's a new one for me. I'm GonNa Guess Tennessee. It looks like it's a suburb of Nashville. I guess that makes sense.

"Welcome back from the holiday weekend. There is a lot going on. So let's just get right to it last week on the show we told you how a Capitol reporter up in Lansing Lansing alleged. That state Senator Peter Lucido of Shelby Township made a sexist remark to her while she tried to interview him. Now a fellow state senator of Lagos Acevedo's said she's filing a workplace sexual harassment complaint against him state. Senator Mallory Mc Moro tells cranes the incident took place in November or twenty eighteen after she was first elected to her seat representing the Thirteenth District in Oakland County Mc Moro a Democrat from Royal Oak said. She introduced herself to Lucido a Republican at an orientation event for newly elected senators. She said Lucido shook her hand but kept his other hand on her lower back throughout the conversation conversation when mcmorris told him that she had defeated an incumbent Republican she said Lucido looked her up and down and told her I can see why McMurdo said she. She stayed silent because she was a freshman. Senator Endless Saito was a former member of the State House who had just been elected to a state Senate seat in the majority party. Her account account was partly backed up by a fellow Senate. Lawmaker who witnessed. Lucy does hand on her lower back. Lucie told crain's the allegation was quote completely untrue and politically motivated unquote. The news comes a week after Michigan advanced reporter Alison Donohue reported. That Lucido told her in front of a a group of Catholic schoolboys quote. You could have a lot of fun with these boys or they could have a lot of fun with you and quote the Senate Business Office is investigating that incident cendant upon request of Senate leaders from both parties. The CTO is a licensed attorney. Who served two terms in the State House before being elected to the state Senate in two thousand eighteen he? He has been widely thought to be considering a run for governor. A lot of people have been talking online about how much money has been raised by recreational marijuana on in Michigan in. Its first six weeks and of course we also chatted about it on this very show more than ten million in sales and about one point seven million in taxes however a new report from Steve needling at the Metro Times puts this all in perspective that in fact Michigan has been far behind other states in recreational marijuana sales ails early on for instance Illinois there. It took just five days to sell what Michigan did in six weeks. There are quite a few reasons for this. Including the fact that Michigan has a very limited number of licensed dispensaries that are actually open. Also as we've talked about here on the show. Eighty percent of cities have opted out of selling selling recreational marijuana altogether that means no dispensaries and no shared revenue for those places slowly. Michigan is bringing new dispensaries online. The first licensed since medical marijuana dispensary and Wayne County has opened first quality meds with a Z.. In River Rouge the next closest one Ann Arbor. This city of Detroit is a place place where an overwhelming majority of residents voted for legalized marijuana. However they're extending their temporary ban on dispensaries through at least March the the vote by city council was unanimous as it works on a city specific social equity program chairs really interesting how so many communities at least voters communities wanted marijuana to be legal? And yet you know people don't want it sold in their communities Nimby at its finest I mean for sure I mean you look at that in the city of Detroit royal folks wrestling with this problem to royal oak overwhelmingly wanted recreational and medical marijuana. But there's a big debate. Now Okay do we want them on Woodward Avenue. Is that something that they wanna the have. It's amazing how many of these communities like I feel like there's just like this huge disconnect between leadership and like what people want and that Illinois for example. I wanted to pull it out because like it's so crazy to me you'd think we'd if we had our ducks in a row we'd have so much more money in the coffers. Yeah you know I keep going back to kind of the cultural roll obstacles that marijuana has to overcome and it's GonNa take a long time. I mean you know. This was a drug that was totally demonized. Going way back to the founding of this country you know it was associated with with immigrants with people of Color essentially. I mean it was. It was used as a racist Haji. Yeah absolutely it was just socially ostracized you know. You did not want people to know that you smoke marijuana. And it's like I'm a father of two kids and I think about it all the time it's like you know marijuana's basically on par now at least legally with alcohol so so but it's GonNa take a long time until we can kind of equate the two substances like. Yeah no no different really than drinking. You know you just have to be twenty one on and you know by by other rules but you know it's GonNa take a long time like there's a lot of social stigma that needs to kind of evaporate and it might take a couple of generations. Shins I think frankly well and I think that stigma probably affecting those politicians responses. The Illitch family has made a proposal to the city in which it would hand over two properties. It owns in exchange for an extension on a deadline to submit a new development plan for property owns in the district. Detroit Olympia Development has has been criticized heavily including on this podcast for the slow pace of development in the district. Detroit which is today mostly surface parking lots under the deal it would get until September twenty twenty two to submit plans for the parcel. Just south of little caesars arena where it had originally planned to build a hotel and retail stores ars in exchange. The city will get to open lots one in brush park and the other in midtown that it would convert to public parks. The plan must first be approved by the city council. So then I know I have thanks. I know you have. Thanks my thinks is you know. I mean we've talked a lot about the district troy and its failings on the show. A lot taxpayer. Money went to you. Know the this whole idea of the district Detroit in the little caesars arena and everything and there's we've got surface parking lots and I'd point out. We were actually part part of that that earlier. Trench of criticism because at I mean we're right around all the time. Yeah I would say that illegitimate supposedly floating these new figures figures of like jobs construction jobs and full time permanent jobs that would go along with this extended deadline. Kate fine whatever I mean you know. They don't have a great track record on delivering on these things in the past. I mean going way back to well before the district attorney. This is the cities. This is their first opportunity. One opportunity at least to extract a pound of flesh from illegit out of this deal. I mean I think okay. It's well and good to get two parcels to Macon departs but like let's start putting some teeth into these agreements agreements. Like I think the city needs to take time and really come up and say how can we build in some assurances that they're going to do what they say here and Dan Come out with some actual tangible benefits to the city. Well especially going forward. Is this deal the first district Detroit deal was I believe done under bankruptcy and so this was not done by the current administration. I will note. That Duggan says that this is. He believes that this is a good deal. I wonder what the actual market demand is for those properties. Brady's right so if this property trade is a good deal key seeing things behind the scenes that maybe we are aren't if there were a bunch of suitors somebody wanting to drop a bunch of money on this land and I wonder if he would take that or did he look at this and go well parks is best.

"Hard top Detroit for more all right first. Up is the news that the federal government and the trump administration are going to get more involved in law enforcement in the city of Detroit. US Attorney General. William Bar unveiled operation relentless pursuit. That's a seventy one million dollar initiative focus on violent crime gangs and drug trafficking and a number of cities including the motor city as well as has albuquerque. Baltimore Cleveland Memphis Milwaukee and Kansas City. The idea is that federal money and talent would partner with local agencies to get the most violent violent offenders off the streets and it is true. That Detroit has the highest violent crime rate per capita in the country but bar was heavy with rhetoric in an editorial in conservative. Detroit news today saying that policing reforms that offered leniency to violent offenders anti police rhetoric and a surge in police officers assaulted led to increases in crime in two thousand fifteen and twenty sixteen the Attorney General referred to operation relentless pursuit as a quote surge. And I'd note that that's a term arm that's often reserved from military operations that will build on the Justice Department's project safe neighborhoods project guardian. And something they're calling deep the disruption in an early engagement program with the goal of reducing gun crime and preventing mass shootings. There would be in their words state of the art technology deployed and about four. One hundred officers nationwide hired for the program but where those officers are going to specifically go. Well that hasn't been announced Jer- I'm GonNa Guess You. There's some thoughts on this one. I I for sure. Do you know as a longtime city resident gotta say and this is regardless of party because both Democrats and Republicans have. I've been heavy on enforcement things. I am always sceptical of anything. That seems more focused on closing people into jail cells than opening doors of opportunity. And let's let's be completely clear here. I am not against lowering crime. Like lowering. Crime is a very good goal but the route and real causes of crime in urban America it's poverty and it's a lack of opportunities and the schools that graduate only ten percent of their kids. That are ready for college. And we've covered this a taunt on this very show programs that focus I mostly enforcement especially and here's the thing they're they're pairing this with cuts to education on a federal level. I mean these are like band. AIDS being applied to gushing wounds and our country has a lot of wounds whether it's an equity racism racism a bunch of other issues. And I mean I don't. I don't think this is a winning combination because if there were jobs proper schools there are more opportunities if people wouldn't turn to crime and I think that's the thing is that we've got to get to the root causes of this and because so many people try to deal with these issues don't live in these kind of communities communities or have to deal with them they don't know how to handle them and make a real dent and locally. I am really cognizant of the verbiage and the feel talking some neighbors of mine. This feels a lot like stress back in the day it was called stopped robberies. Enjoy safe streets and if you didn't know what that was it was basically an undercover unit of the Detroit Police Department in the early Seventies. That were thugs. I mean straight up killing scores of African Americans and there's a great episode of Crime Crime Town that linked to in the show notes. But I mean it is. It is scary when you talk about heavy enforcement for a lot of African Americans in this country and if you want to know one of the key things powered Mayor Coleman young into office. Detroit's first black mayor that I know a lot of listeners find controversial it was enlarged response to to the evils of that stress unit to the African American community and the large number of people. They killed so i. I personally skeptical. Jared skeptical off in a case of to paraphrase Brittany Spears. oops I doubt again. The Detroit free press is reporting the DOM. Oh the largest contractor as part one of the city's massive demolition program as again demolished the wrong house. They had a contract for more than twenty five thousand dollars to demolish house on Alma Street. But they got the address wrong and took down a house a block over. It's absurd it's not good and we'll put a Lincoln show notes to the full story a quick reminder that poverty exemption. MCI for your property taxes in the city of Detroit needs to be applied for by the end of tomorrow December twentieth. The exemption can take between half and all of your tax bill love if you are a homeowner who qualifies the program which has already been extended runs through December twentieth. To See if you can make it go to Detroit I am. I dot g-o-v or dot Gov and search for H. P. T. A. P. H. P. T. a. p. also put a link in the show notes. So here's an interesting one related to big plant. FCA is building on. Detroit's east side on Mac as part of the massive deal to get that done. FCA FCA has transferred. Half of what will be one point. Eight million dollars to Detroit's Housing and Revitalization Department to fund a Home Repair Grant Program homeowners. Living living near the plant can get up to fifteen thousand dollars per property to fix up their homes. And here's a key. This is a grant not alone so you don't have to pay it back. Applications locations will open in the spring. And we'll be sure to talk about it again. When it becomes available to nearby residence wheelhouse? DETROIT ANNOUNCE THE CLOSURE OF ITS HAMTRAMCK location and which has been operating on Joseph Compo for the past three years. All stock is twenty five percent off until the last day and that's December twenty first. So that's coming up real soon. The the bicycle retail and repair shop will focus on. It's Detroit location. That's over by the riverfront. It's it's absolutely beautiful but I gotta say it's kind of sad to see this. I hate to see retail stores. Go and I hate to see bike shops go also we'll house Detroit sponsored bike parking DC FC mattress. I'm wondering if that will continue. I mean he did. I mean I know that the owner has been active even the community for a really long time and I mean things must have not been working out for this thing to to close in the western suburb of Dearborn. Beaumont has broken ground in a new forty million dollar mental health facility. The plan is for it to open in mid twenty twenty according to press materials Beaumont and universal health services will have a one hundred fifty bed had one hundred thousand square foot facility across from the existing hospital on Rotunda drive. Mental health is an important and growing issue in Michigan suicide rates in the state of Michigan in had gone up about thirty three percent since nineteen ninety nine and one in five Americans deal with mental health issues. Lakeside Mall in Sterling Heights has been acquired by new owners owners who planned to eventually add retail and office space to the hundred Acre site and that is up in mccomb county quite a bit away from downtown. But it's interesting since Malls Randy are. They still thing man. I don't know if you need a mall for the Plethora of shopping experiences. I like that word. Plethora is a good one but I like the idea of a space where you can go and spend a day kind of like a destination venue. There's definitely like a need for that and I actually met somebody the other month that actually works at the the old fairlane mall. It's actually like it's still a mall in part but there's also a huge chunk of it that's apparently Ford Office space. Oh Wow that's a good use for the space I guess since Shops chops are leaving well. And there's lots of parking and all of that kind of stuff. Yeah I wonder what will happen out there you know McCone county is definitely growing and the farther out you get. There's there's definitely a lot of investment happening. I wonder like kind of recycling up cycling. The space is a good idea. I wonder if they'll put it in an observation tower for the Golden Bowl. This this is Kinda neat as it's right in my neighborhood the funky for no Arthur has been named one of America's Best Art Fairs by art fair calendar Dot Com based on voting by patrons collectors organizers and artists. Wow there's a lot of F in that story but I'm glad to see ferndale getting some plots. You know speaking of places with Fox to apparently ripped on Ferndale for not having having enough parking earlier this week and Because I guess they went to Valentine for some company Party and they were just very upset about this. There's a private lot right next door. Or there's a municipal lot behind that private lot and their street parking so I don't know did they not want to walk the extra fifty steps. According to hometown town life dot Com. The Novi Planning Commission has postponed a rezoning decision. I cur Novi a fifty million dollar mixed use development featuring Asian restaurants. It's as well as apartments with a Japanese garden. The postponement is due to several questions about the project that would require rezoning along Grand River and eleven mile east. TOWNE centre drive They keep talking about this when that might happen and might not happen. One of the things I've read in the notes about this and stories over time is that they really want to make this a flutie destination and randy. If there are foodies in the world I know that you are one of them What do you think the idea of a foodie destination especially out somewhere in Novy? That's I mean it's it's definitely like a a distance away it would have to be one heck of a restaurant to get me to go all the way to Novi two weekends ago. A friend had to twist. It's my arm to get me to go to Farmington hills. Well all right. But here's the thing was that place in Farmington hills worth the drive. Yeah we went to India flavors and it was amazing.

"I know there's peninsula in and a Domino Indiana but like not a lunch crowd but like what. If you actually like geared it up and said we're going to make this a fun place to be especially really during the warmer months to be on the riverfront. I mean but that gets my whole thing that I believe the riverfront in general is underused. Like it'd be amazing. Still really with the river walk okay. So here's my thought on that between General Motors Renton and then you go over to like the Cullen Carousel and all that you have a sea of terrible surface parking lots true and to me. Why aren't there street vendors? Why aren't there things like activation in between? Why don't we just get rid of that surface parking? Why don't why doesn't somebody like build some kind of Parking structure to get that stuff out of the way whether it's whether it's businesses on the riverfront whether it's a mix of residential things like that like let's bring that space back act because like the worst use possible is surface parking lots. I know people park but put them in garages. I agree but I don't know for sure but I'm pretty sure that the surface offers parking lots are used by the wrens primary tenant which. I'm not sure if you're aware but it's a car. Companies called General Motors Garage. Thank you build a garage. They could build a garage watch. And here's the deal. They could put retail on the bottom that could put a garage in the middle and residential up top. They can actually like join the twentieth century. They could for sure and I agree. I mean there are some there are still a lot more potential than what is realized with the river walk. I think but yeah all right. Big News for Detroit. Pizza lovers buddies is is open in downtown Detroit. I know span you and I went and checked it out. You were actually pretty happy with the Pizza Devon. You've been there too now that it's been open we have been since it's open. What's the what's and you randy? What's guys now that it's open? What's the story officially opened Wednesday? I was there Monday night before. Okay but you got to get service party there so I mean I think it's kind of what you said. I think we all know buddies so the question was going to be. You know kind of food be consistent is buddies buddies is the you know can keep that quality. I think the answer is yes. I mean. They've done a really good job of keeping the same consistency. The slice of pizza that you'll have at the downtown was is the same kind tasted in veal is the one you have in Detroit Dearborn or wherever else so I think did a really good job big space. So you've got a lot of room got a bar there The location is fantastic. Although although that location has had some issues Places in that specific location there under the broader tower in the Madison. The location on its face is really good so I would imagine. We'll do a great job. Picking up the lion's crowd and tigers crowd. They're gonNA mop it up. I think sports balls going on and I think it's great that they're doing like fast service. Quick Service Window. Yeah I get. What like whether? It's the office crowd or the running to the game. Crowd being able to walk up and just grab a slice and pop or something. Sounds absolutely perfect now. I was impressed the cocktail menu because I actually had a whole page of classic cocktails. That was that was a welcome speaking of cocktails. I'd just like to interject that My my old fashioned here the the manual old fashioned as the hammer and nail. It has a slightly. You know. It's their own take on the classic Old School old fashioned is very tasty as is my white Russian. It is amazing. There's a nitro white Russian nine Jewish and absolutely right okay so there is a place that I have not visited you too but our man about town knows what's going on. Let's Talk Leyla. Let's let's do it because I heard so many good things I was drinking. In Grosse Ross Point Park and people were talking about Layla and that tells me like if your point par. Well you know what I mean when I when I'm drinking in places that are off the beaten path although I do like drinking. In Grosse Pointe like which it sounds crazy but sometimes some great bars over there when I hear it like all over the place I heard about it in Dearborn. Everyone's talking about Layla. Well I would say it definitely fits where it's at. So capital. Park is becoming quite a tourist destination. I don't say that in a derogatory way. I say that as you know. Oh it's great. There's people from all over the Metro area coming to Capitol Park to either. You know get coffee at Desert Oasis or get steak at prime improper or get pastries canal. which has been doing a credible business? So Leyla is upscale Mediterranean restaurant. It does everything really well. It's it is upscale. The design is incredible. Incredible My only knock on it would be as a dearborn night. Are you know for most of my life from Dearborn. I've had I've had ED better Middle Eastern food for half the price. Wow It is fire. It is what it is. I mean I don't think many people are gonNA argue at that Middle Eastern more than Mediterranean Middle Eastern on the Metro area. So I you know when we went we had some different dips obamacare news which is very good. The Hamas was very good You know ten twelve dollars a plate go dearborn for five bucks butter. You know. You're you're paying for you are and that's my. That's my point is you're paying for the ambiance paying for being a capital park you're paying for being in the middle title of downtown Detroit but you can go down Warren Avenue and they're swarming is going to be true we go to better There aren't that many I mean. There's an Anita's kitchen downtown. Oh now but there's not a whole lot yet of Middle Eastern food to be had downtown. No there isn't but and this is on the premed so they're coming in juryman. There's probably still an opportunity for for someone to come in on the more approachable end of of the Mediterranean but it's fantastic does or a Bucharest which is no longer even more approachable than Anita's because their their bowls are like fifteen in bucks but I would say that they also have a full cocktail menu. which was really good? Their cocktails are really good. My like recommend Devon recommendation for that would be forgoing for drinks in APPs. It's absolutely fantastic and drinks Not a common thing to be founded Most Middle Eastern places in around town. especially down in Dearborn you know. Yeah exactly and they they do a really good job of actually incorporating some kind of Middle Eastern elements into the drink so I think one of the drinks ahead like date syrup. ooh with With whiskey and some of the different Randy's on that very much. So you mentioned Dearborn. I want to stay there for a second and I know that we actually have a deeper engagement about longboard coming up but you know. Oh that's made some waves over there in downtown airborne needs some waves on C. Pun intended. Yeah ooh Yeah Long Great. I mean we've all been there at this point I think it's it's really cool. The way I kind of describe it as like it's type of place that would open up in Detroit but as opening up in Dearborn just great to see it places like that making it out to the suburbs for sure from the people that brought you jolly Pumpkin. It's their take on kind of Hawaiian Pacific Pacific island style so a little bit of Tiki. Little Bit of Pizza Right. Would you say it's longer feature coming out later. I kind of describe it as like an Honorary Tiki. Yeah I would say that. And that's big words coming from you because you are a Tiki fan so Bucharest. I is continuing to build their empire as well into the suburbs. And so I just gotTa say like again. That's another thing that I feel like. It's really approachable. It something that just like taking off. It's like there's this love for Bucharest that is I think unparalleled for people who've had it. Yeah I mean you can't beat it there. There can't be enough. Bucharest is at this point. I mean they've got A. It's almost like I think about you know in the chick-fil-a world or whatever it is we're it's just they've got this formula down they do Schwimmer's as good as anybody that can mass produce reduce them the dollars five dollars which is crazy and if you don't if you're not into warm I love the Nikki Salad it's absolutely great and two two observations from me on on Bucharest ones actually not related to Bucharest. But shout out to their breakfast. Wrap Sandwich with I didn't know they had at least deliver. Nori location does Scrambled eggs. French fries is and then like the kind of Greek Salad type Fillings with Tomato Fateh cucumber and onion. It's really really good. But the other thing I was going to ask random you might know. Balkan House opening in Ferndale is not open yet. It is yeah yeah that's a Hamtramck `assises sece's nation is running out. It's something that just like caught fire and just went up but I'm really glad to see to see these independent places like get traction and all of that all.

"Ground that's believed to contain uranium has collapsed into the Detroit River. We talked to the reporter that broke the story. Dave Bad Ajello from the Windsor is our star and then around of what to know where to go around town on Today's Daily Detroit. It's Thursday December Fifth Twenty nineteen. I'm Jason Jason. Well let's dive right in at some point over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend a portion of riverbank near Fort Wayne collapse into the Detroit River. That riverbank is believed to contain material. Leftover from the Manhattan project. If you remember that was the national effort to create the atomic bomb during World War Two and the company on that land extruded uranium rods into the nineteen fifties for nuclear development to talk about it as Dave Bad. Ajello from the Windsor Star. Dave Dave what exactly happened over there near Fort Wayne. Oh for my understanding from all the information I received is that there was Detroit bulk storage just a company and they at least property there The property is not on by Maroon. A lot of people seem to think it is but it's owned by a grand rapids company called Erickson Group so Detroit's bookstores moved in there on July. They've been struggling with called aggregate or gravel on the site since that time The night before is learning today the night before Thanksgiving they had quite a sizeable pile on the property From ship that just dropped it off the pro that night there was a lot of rainfall the rivers high as it is according to the owner of the gravel stored about one hundred feet from the shore and then the sure started to give away It broke out into the water. And all of the aggregate gravel. Yeah that was being stored near the show has sure has fallen into the river gravel could contain contaminants right because this used to be Old Revere Copper Site. Yeah it's not the actual gravel that would be contaminated but it's the ground itself used to be the former revere copper site which which people As I'm learning just yesterday myself. That's eight revere. Copper was involved in what's known as the Manhattan Project Race to build the first atomic bon the company back in the nineteen forties was subcontracted to be part of that and they constructed. What's known as uranium rods They started that in the forties and continue to construct uranium rods well into the nineteen mid mid nineteen fifties Before they stopped likely for safety reasons the property was abandoned in the eighties. So nobody there's been soil checks but nothing really of any recent time Dating back to perhaps the nineties was the most recent check. But anytime you're dealing with uranium radium like chance. It was in the soil which might have been fine but now the soil broken away and into the river. It's kind of scary if you think about it because I I mean. I don't think we think about these things in Detroit per se. You know because especially I think. A lot of people don't realize that we have connections to the Manhattan project. I don't think I certainly only didn't and I don't think many people would be aware that given their history of time or the passage of time But here's a company that was in Detroit involved in developmentally. Oh Yeah Tomic. Bomb played a role in producing parts for the bomb For quite a lengthy period of time but unfortunately production now maybe causing initiative giving up the shores breaking away here into the river. So do you have any idea of what's next or what to look forward to in this saga while everybody's is not everybody's just kinda doing right now and they're all on the phone today to try to figure out a strategy how to deal with this Detroit bookstores. It's a company involved here. I spoke with the owner and I don't think he really grasp himself the history of the site. He just. He's in the gravel business and didn't seem to have a strong hold on the history in what was actually in the ground beneath him. He's learning that today. Eagle as your environmental agency is known as on the phone trying to get investigators to the site and develop a strategy in terms of how to deal one what the ground broken and the river washing up on it to deal with the aggregate that's fallen into the river. And what how big of a problem all of this is. The site has been listed by the Wall Street Journal. As one of America's forgotten nuclear wastelands. The danger here is what's in the ground that we've talked talked about but also the sediment nearby as the Detroit River is bottom has a variety of chemicals leftover from industry like Mercury and. PCB's left alone and in place. It's not as much of a danger but disturb it and disperse it and it could be a different story in fact this particular site was being considered for the new Gordie Howe Bridge but but environmental concerns. Put the brakes on that idea. And here's the Cherry on top. According to maps you were able to find downriver from the site are a couple of water intakes one at Wine Ryan Dot and another near fighting island. We'll keep an eye on the story and you can follow Dave from the star on twitter at Dave Jello and that's with two TS and two wells. There's a new development in the case of the slain Detroit police officer Rashid. McLean if you remember. He was killed on November twentieth and his partner Philippe Platoon whom beasts was wounded in leg. twenty-eight-year-old John Parks was arraigned Thursday in thirty-six District Court on Sixteen felony charges included. The bucket is first degree premeditated murder he will await trial in the Wayne. County jail with no bond with preceding scheduled to start December nineteenth layoffs with the opportunity to work other plants have been made at the Detroit Hamtramck GM facility as it retools for new electric products. Eight hundred and fourteen hourly and salaried read employees will be affected and the lace will begin at the end of February twenty twenty more than seven hundred fifty workers are covered by the UAW and have bumping rights to other plants per collective bargaining agreement. But those rights do not extend to the retooled plant. DETROIT HAMTRAMCK will build all electric trucks vans though there isn't a specific product design yet. GM says that there will be about two thousand two hundred twenty five jobs there after the three billion dollar investment is done related is an announcement of a joint venture with LG. Oh Gee Kim to put two point three billion bucks into a new electric battery plant in Lordstown Ohio General Motors in multiple interviews says that the company is preparing for an all all electric future. There's something that I saw that I find kind of interesting mostly because of the timing. If you remember on yesterday's show we talked about buddies opening and kid rock pulling out of his licensing deal at little. CAESARS arena. The Metro Times is now reporting that kid rock announcement came the same day as a racial racial discrimination lawsuit by a former black bartender was settled for an undisclosed sum. According to the suit she alleged she was fired for wearing an Afro. Throw the restaurant also. It was licensed by rock is operated by Delaware north. The National Food Service Company that runs many of the concepts in the arena. The News Center sides largest residential project in years opened their doors Thursday. The boulevard is a six story three hundred and fifty six thousand square foot mixed use development at Third Avenue and West Grand Boulevard in the city. That's on the next block from the Fisher building. They're going to be retail spots like orange theory fitness beyond juice. Eh Comerica Bank branch of stairs. There will be two hundred and thirty one studio one and two bedroom apartments that range in size from just over five hundred square feet to more more than eleven hundred square feet and twenty percent of the units will be affordable housing for those making eighty percent of the average median income in the region the total price tag on the development including a three hundred and thirty space. Parking structure is said to be sixty million dollars in the suburbs. The Wilcox Mill in Plymouth and the Newburgh Burgh mill site in Livonia. Just took a big step toward being redeveloped. The Wayne County Commission approved the sale of the properties for a total of seven hundred sixty five thousand dollars and approved an agreement to acquire nearly seven acres and Westland to add to Hines Park. The sold properties will be part of the mill. Run Place Making project. So so what are the plan for these Wilcox Mill was bought by Milan rooch and that was created by well known local artist. Tony Roco and the art foundation. They planned to rehab the building into to an art education space and construct a publicly accessible inner child sculpture garden that displays three-dimensional realizations of children's drawings. Look developer. Richard Cox will renovate the NEWBURGH mill into a distillery with retail space and park that shaped like a spiral inspired by the automotive parts. Once made on the site Cox has a track record including turning the Northville mill into modern office space. He also purchased Phoenix Millan Plymouth Township and has turning that property into an event event facility with public green spaces. The county will get first right of refusal under the deal to repurchase the properties if the new owners assigned to ever sell them in the future. And and there's a bit of history to these buildings and Land Wilcox in newburgh mills as well as the Phoenix Mill in Nankin mills were part of the Ford Village Industries Network of part factories located along the Middle Rouge River. They were deeded to the county by Ford Motor Company in Nineteen Forty eight Nankin mills remains with Wayne County Johny. It houses.

"And I'm Jerry States we've got a slew of stories to catch up on headlines including seventeen thousand right here in Michigan alone the UAW said Sunday that GM rebuffed its proposal and intern offered a proposal the union had previously rejected there's also report from W. Xyz that GM has backed off on its proposals to build a new electric pickup truck at the Detroit Hamtramck plant and build a new battery plant near Lordstown Ohio where it shutting down a vehicle assembly plant if true that could mean that both plants would be shuttered and the latest is that all three Detroit automakers are apparently using the national joint training centers as bargaining chips with the UAW the Detroit news reports that the UAW training centers funded by both GM and Fiat Chrysler could be restructured with higher financial controls by the automakers and lower structural costs the free purports that GM may even want to close its joint training center on the riverfront and sell the building and its property to a private owner those training centers have figured large in the ongoing federal investigation into embezzlement at the UAW the stalemate idling fifty five facilities is likely to drag on as both sides have major issues they can't seem to give ground on you know there's a lot on this tables fan electric vehicles are coming and yeah they're gonNA need far fewer components fewer workers to put those together and plus there's a huge cost that I mean all automakers are facing to develop electric vehicles technology you know to build new vehicle platforms retool plants and everything I mean enormous cost and then also you know factoring autonomous vehicles which are a little farther now a little more farfetched but they're coming in everybody's you know working on them and wants to nobody wants to be late to that so do you think anybody has a good handle on the win Win are these electric and then autonomous vehicles coming or is it still a guessing game well electric vehicles are very much here already I mean they're still very small part of the overall market in the United States although there larger overseas like in European countries and China and stuff but you know that that technology will certainly advance so I think we're starting to see some advances in battery driving range and things like that autonomous vehicles is a little bit more of a crapshoot I think there's been a lot of optimism stick talk overly optimistic talk from automakers but I think most experts agree that it's a long ways out yet before before autonomous vehicles is is ready ready for primetime in the meantime for GM one of the few areas they can actually control costs and a global integrated supply chain is Labor labor according to the Center for automotive research run sixty three dollars an hour at GM sixty one bucks an hour at Ford fifty five bucks an hour at FCA and non unionized labor costs nationally range about fifty dollars an hour and so in the highly competitive auto industry this is pushing GM to us more often factories and temporary workers and its rivals and to be cleared the those figures include a healthcare benefits which should drive up those costs and this isn't workers Tom Sixty one dollars an hour no and in fact healthcare is one of the issues that the two sides are arguing over on the union side the U. a. w. made major concessions during the last contract and feel they need to get at least some of those back the UAW pays a very low percentage of their healthcare cost compared to other American workers and we're talking single digit percentages here and that's another area where GM would probably like to get some savings and the W. wants more of those temporary workers to become permanent to make this even more complicated than it already is lurking in the shadows is an active federal invest negation of union officials and plus there's the whole ongoing economic impact of the strike which is now in its fourth week the Detroit news reports that again seventeen thousand uaw workers in Michigan are involved in the strike against gem and that as of the end of September there were thirty five hundred unemployment claims from people who were laid off from companies that supplied parts GM autos players in other words you know meanwhile the UAW workers are on strike are now having to make do on just two hundred fifty dollars a week in take home pay which is you know try living on two hundred fifty a week I can't imagine that's easy you know I will point out here that General Motors reported two point four billion dollars in profit in just in the second quarter alone right they're going to release their third order results at the end of this month but they've already said that their third quarter deliveries were up six point three percent so sounds like things were good but you know what seeing the numbers of course you know I heard somewhere recently a comparison between starting auto workers in in the assembly plants mix somewhere close to sixteen to seventeen dollars an hour which somebody said somebody pointed out is pretty much the equivalent of what you get paid in an Amazon fulfillment warehouse because the floor are now is fifteen dollars an hour plus yes so you know it's it just sort of brings up like this troubling trend of jobs of the future you know I mean that's not a lot ought of money I mean fifteen dollars sixteen seventeen dollars an hour is not a lot of money Those jobs are stressful. They're repetitive I mean they need their healthcare because you know especially in the auto plants because it can be pretty difficult wears you down as somebody who has a lot of family there've been in the UAW it wears you way down with a lot of overhead work and the repetitive have you know motions and everything you know and we're in the future where it's like you know jobs are becoming more and more like repetitive and just and stressful the pressure's on everything and you know all because you know they're they're working for these publicly traded companies that answer to shareholders into Wall Street and have to keep their earnings up you know they're under pressure ordered a coordinated to deliver you may have heard stories about lead in the water up in flint it made national news but recent testing has field lead has exceeded acceptable levels closer to home the Oakland County suburbs of Birmingham and white lake were found to have select samples with lead levels above fifty eighteen parts per billion county officials say they're working to find the source of the problem and the Oakland County Health Division is working to get these cities in compliance usually eh gets into drinking water through the corrosion of materials containing lead in the water distribution system and plumbing there are water filtration kits available and it's important to note that this doesn't affect all homes we'll have some links to resources in the show notes do the Detroit Pistons moved into their new practice facility and corporate headquarters in the new center the team marked the opening of its news ninety million dollar four story facility Armsterdam and second avenue on Monday it's the largest practice facility in the NBA The one hundred eighty five thousand square foot mixed use facility also serves as the team's headquarters other features include a broadcast studio and interview rooms three hydro pools and Cryogenic Treatment Systems love me some cryogenic treatment jer and the franchises three NBA championship trophies which are on prominent display for the public there will be a plum market grocery outlet and blink fitness workout facility both of which are expected to be opened by the end of the year it's also connected by an enclosed glass wall way to the new thirty-seven Million Dollar William Clay Ford Center for Athletic Medicine Henry Ford is the Pistons Official Sports Medicine Sponsor and provider the new facility will also allow for youth basketball clinics health and fitness programming in Pistons Academy Basketball Programs Here's Pistons owner Tom Gores speaking about the children you know this is the place for kids to be open this up for kids in if there's any kid listening I just WanNa remind when you come here have fun you have a good time but then when you go home I want you to work hard for future in go live your dream the anybody else tell you that your dreams not possible in remind you as a little boy from flint I mean crazy that I'm up here and don't forget each European and carrots and other vegetables to kids look I think this is great news I mean in all seriousness I think professional basketball belongs back here in and Detroit I mean which is not to say that there aren't fans and players out in Auburn hills in the distant distant suburbs out there of course there were for when I drive the city and I see people playing in the streets playing in the yard it's it's basketball man yeah I mean this has a potential to really connect I think with kids in the city here in Detroit and hope provide them with another positive example pot positive role models and show them you know like a positive the path. I think it's going to be really key for the Pistons to sort of you know make outreach and expand or youth programming options to kids in the city and I hope they do that frankly and it's good for the community and it's good for the team right those are future fans that are going to be more rabid about what you're doing and I gotta say this though because you mentioned this before there's applause market coming you know what that might mean what's that a Mo- it wont Amoah Champagne Vending Machine within walking distance of this very studio goodwill wonders never see yes I know this is this is Detroit for you and the one thing that is interesting though is that the Fisher building will not be the Golden Tower of the Fisher building it will be the blue and red tower in celebration I think through the end of the month another one of the food stalls inside the.

"The motor city supporters liked that created a walkable space for the public to enjoy with vendors food trucks and seating areas the city's neighborhoods dot org site now says that steps will be taken to ensure the plaza's permanency now that you. The news here are my two cents. I say this is I live in the city. I'm personally for this one. The most successful areas of Detroit are the ones that are walkable and welcoming and six lanes of traffic in four directions is the absolute reverse that one criticism awesome I would have is that they need to move that bus. Stop on Jefferson. Maybe about twenty or thirty feet. It's just awkward where it is now and another thing and this is one thing I wanted to note here to. I'd love to see the city do something with Hart Plaza. That's across the street there but I get the idea that it'd be a very expensive undertaking the bottom line. I think Detroit has made a lot of terrible design decisions in the last twenty years and we're only now starting to catch up with the rest of the nation and as the traffic well as someone who's lived in and been another cities. We don't really know what real traffic is. After all who are we building Detroit four residents or commuters and for what it's worth the city says that the plaza didn't impact traffic long term. I think it'd be better if we could build more garages so folks could park sooner and then get to their offices one of the things I've noticed that that's interesting about Detroit. Is that a lot of folks stay in their offices. They go to work and they don't go out for lunch. They don't go to dinner are afterward. Yes there are more people out there now especially with folks like the quicken family of companies and some younger folks but I think about our food contributor Randy Walker. He works a corporate day job. It is so hard for him to get his CO workers to come out of the building for lunch. It's it's crazy for good extra conversation around all of this checkout in the feed. I'll have lincoln the show notes to my conversation with bedrocks vice president of Parking Kevin Bob. It's good one the legendary bar and music venue where the white stripes started has burned the gold dollar on casts and I can see the back of it from our window here at the podcast. The traits studios had a fire last night. The place has a really interesting history for a time as a beer garden a drag club and as a music venue. It's currently owned by a company controlled. trolled by the illitch family and had been left derelict for quite a while as of this recording the fire is being investigated as being likely arson and there were no injuries. I just checked over. There and crews. Were boarding the place up so my drinking career was just getting started when this one was shut down and let's be honest my memories here a bit blurry. Here's hoping that this might spur some folks into action to do something however I'm skeptical because the track record of the owners my chips are going to be placed based on landscaped lit fenced parking lot until proven otherwise kid rock is selling his Detroit home. The Riverfront Mansion in the Joe Berry subdivision is on the market circuit for two point two million. The Detroit news reports that the six Thousand Square Foot House was purchased in twenty twelve and in that time the owner whose real name is Robert Richey has made a lot of renovations will link to it and the show notes joining me on the line from London as Murray Hillary welcome daily Detroit. Thanks for having me. You have a really interesting event coming up to the TRAE. Riverfront next month called the silent hike. Where did you come up with this idea? I had this idea because of the pianist and composer I also am deeply inspired by nature so I thought what could be more immersive and inspiring than having the whole audience moving through nature with me and with music carrying us all so that was the real inspiration for this experience. So how does this work it kind of reminds me of like a silent disco where if people don't know where you wear headphones but you can tune into different channels. It's it's really fun right so essentially we're like our own radio station moving. Moving through the park and <hes> we're going to be walking for about ninety minutes or so from one monument to the next taking the landscape while wearing these wireless headphones that as you mentioned sometimes they're used for dancing disco <hes> events but we're using them for a deeply reflective contemporary tive almost meditative experience the music that'll be playing will be original compositions and why piano recordings of mine that I created and also be guiding the experience through the microphone that you can only here in the headphones as well. That's layered over the music so that I can guide experience. It's not just where we're going but also a kind of guiding of the external and the internal landscape and that's really the idea behind the mind travel silent hike experience. Is it Kinda fuses together this internal Oh experience we have our own internal landscape and it connects it with our external landscape and so the to kind of come together well and you brought this experience as some pretty high profile places I mean Central Park Lincoln Center much which Paul to Museum of art you know it seems like there's a little bit of a higher purpose and in my background I saw that the mission is to move people to greater purpose through the in their lives through music. Can you kind of talk about that in that. It's a seems to be like a meditative experience. That's right in in some ways. It's it's like a modern take on walking meditation but we're taking it to a whole new level through the technology and the music and you know typically in our lives we're so busy where easily really distracted with our digital devices or smartphones social media. I mean you name it. We're we're distracting. Our attention is pulled in so many different directions through this experience. We create the space to connect within to kind. Love opened up creativity to really connect with our deepest selves so that we can show up in life and choose kind of what's important to us and we can show up and behave and be with the ones we love how we WANNA be rate of cells so when I talk about moving people purpose it's really about creating the space for them to reflect and connect to what's important to them and sometimes it's easy to lose sight of bats. Lose track of that in our busy lives so that that's really the aspiration of this experience. So why did you bring this to Detroit yeah so I've been taking this from city to city country to country. I'm actually speaking to you now from London where we'll be doing it this evening here at <hes> in Kensington in gardens <hes> we were in Berlin yesterday Paris two days ago and really this has become a universal experience that no matter where I take it no matter what country what background what ethnicity what religion what culture the experience resonates in the same way because this experiences about creating that soundtrack to the human story and beneath all are perceived differences. I believe there live a common the thread a common human experience common human story and so I said you know what I wanNA. Take this from coast to coast. This is not just about Los Angeles. This is not just about New York. This is about every city in between so I'm I'm getting in my van and I'm driving from New York all the way to the West Coast and we're GonNa hit over twenty cities along the way and you know we chose Detroit along with other incredible cities in the Midwest and the south to bring it to places. Is that might not ordinarily have an experience like this as easily as you know accessible especially because what I do doesn't exist. No I really WANNA bring it to new places and Detroit specifically has had it history with difficult times but now there's a a lot of exciting things happening there and it's very encouraging to see but of course there's still a long way to go so I would love to be a small part if I can of the solution and brings some magic to that incredible city so let's talk about when that Magic's happening I understand it's <hes> coming August sixth. That's right yes. We'll be there and it'll be in the evening or people have to do is show up. They get the headphones <hes> when they do. It's a free experience because we really WanNa make it fully accessible to everyone in the community unity and so you just have to sign up and we reserve the headphones for you well. It sounds like something that I'm going to have to do on my birthday because actually that is my actual birthday. I'm also in August a little later in the month but <hes> it's a it's a great month. You'll be alive right absolutely absolutely whoa Mary thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us out of your busy schedule and <hes> folks be sure to check out this experience. We'll have a link to the show notes and all of that. Thank you for stopping by daily Detroit. Thank you for having me have a great day and before I let you go.

"A piece of Detroit real estate news that made us say, holy crap. There's a penthouse loft apartment in mid-town. That's on the market for a cool one point four million dollars. It's in the Willy's overland, loft building on Willis street, right next door to the original Avalon, bakery, and coffee, shop, the free says the loft is actually two units combined into one on the building's fifth and sixth floors, the specs on this. When are three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms nearly twenty seven hundred square feet plus another fifteen hundred for the terrace, which offers views of downtown, Detroit, and the ambassador bridge. It's got a custom built steel staircase. A two story main space with Florida ceiling windows and a galley kitchen finished in walnut. Willie's lofts is housed inside a former dealership for the Willy's overland an early four hundred Jeep that was built and headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, the conversion to residential loss was completed about a decade ago with the addition of two stories. Not included in that list. Price is a four hundred seventy five dollar monthly condo fee will link to the free story on daily Detroit dot com. From the high demand for a million dollar, plus Lofton midtown to a new study that shows people who rent in metro-detroit are looking to leave town apartment list dot com has new data. That shows that people who are renting in our region are the second most likely in the nation to search to leave the area fifty percent of searches for housing by people in metro Detroit are for places outside of the region. Demand is very uneven after all in metro Detroit, some areas, usually the walkable more urban places like greater downtown Detroit. What you can't seem to build enough places to serve the demand, and there are waiting lists. The top cities people in metro Detroit, are looking to leave to Cleveland Cincinnati and Grand Rapids. I thought it was interesting to put these two stories together spend because actually I've, I've toured those Willy's overland lofts spaces before they're absolutely beautiful. But there's been a lot that has been sitting on the market until recently, and then it just starts starts to move, but they are beautiful spaces. And then you put. That right next to some stats like this, where it's like, really positive about Detroit, but the region, there's a lot of people can leave. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean I would love to see, you know, deeper drill down into that. But I think, you know, you're right that people, you know, we're, we're seeing really hot rental markets are places like Ferndale down here in midtown in Detroit. But, you know, you'd suspect out in the suburbs, you know, rental apartment buildings and stuff like that, that, that don't have any kind of walkable amenities or any, you know, access to a nearby downtown. I think people are, you know, you know, look, younger people don't wanna live in those in those kind of areas, we keep reading about that over and over again. It's there's no secret, well, and the other thing, I think leaders and this is a stat I think they need to grab onto to really embrace this change is that forty three percent of families now rent their homes across America that isn't just like a Detroit thing that's a national change. In fact, more people are renting now than in the last fifty

"Online. P I N G R W Detroit. Pinger Detroit dot com. And then we're also Easter market every Saturday, I understand that you guys have established some sales goals and everything for this year. Can you talk a little bit about that? Sure. So the biggest thing is we have a lot of men and women who want to work. We don't have the man for to bring on an employee. So the goal is look like being profitable. Like, we have our loans have gotten very from where they were we have a very small amount of cash to work with so really being officiant our processes, we want to be able to hire five more people in the next year to do of variety of different elements were I can't share it now. But there's some really exciting things in. It comes to some of the we're Vance minutes, we want to be participating in and some other kind of collaborations that we're looking at. So that's kind of some of the growth goals is like growth in impacts growth in product offerings. So people waiting for the governor shoes for a long time. We're real excited unveil those or really excited offer some other products people waiting for. And then it looks like just bringing the money that's necessary. To sustain the current team and to grow that team. What's your pitch to somebody? Who says, you know? Wow. These are nice shoes. But you know, they're expensive. I mean, the the mayor shoes I think are over three hundred dollars. Right. So I mean, why are they worth it? I guess there's two pieces to the one is if the next time you bought a pair of steiger's you buying those that would look really good. And last for the next fifteen years, they'll be worth, you know, if you could rissoli your sneakers, and then you the fact that you knew they are handmade by hands of US veterans or Detroiters. And then the leather was also supporting the Detroit auto industry. So those three elements coupled with the fact that sixty five percent of the cost is just labor. So that you're paying a living wage someone's making thirteen to twenty dollars an hour handcrafting these products than the majority of all the hardware is American made. So you're supporting the the rivets and eyelets you come from Louisiana. We've got the shoelaces are coming from Brooklyn, New York, the leathers destroy like. All the aspects are all done with a lot of intention -ality. So you're not just buying a an expensive pair that's marked up. It's ex direct to customer. We don't currently have the retail locations for sneakers because right now it's much the cost to make it. And then there's a small margin on top. Jaren. I know a little bit about the struggles of trying to launch, you know, your own business and get it to fly and everything. I mean, you're you're describing, you know, it's difficult. You're not drawing the paycheck. You're you're bartending once week and everything, but I mean, are you optimistic that this you're in it for the long haul and you feel good about this hundred percent every day? I start off the day visiting what we're going to create and what the impact is that we're able to create. So I'm a higher percent optimistic. I believe my entire being that what we're able to accomplish he's going to be hundreds of jobs across the country. But starting in Detroit, Michigan that are living wage jobs that are worker owned which means that equity is the core of what we do that. Well, being as maximizing all. Frans that we're going to be able to Donnelly produce things that are a little bit of a more accessible price point as we grow and have more equipment and have more scale. But then we also producing things that people need that are sustainable that have a closed loop cycle. So that we don't have to throw stuff away whereas way we create things that last that are made with care that are supporting people like Nate another makers on our team. So that we can all together thrive, and we can create together Detroit that actually works for Detroiters that makes her neighborhoods stronger and accent maximize. Being. All right friends.

Learn more at Milo Detroit dot com, take it away. Jer. Karen, welcome back to the show. It's wonderful to have you as a repeat offender honored as always. So you have your hands in yet another project to give people background. This woman has written a book on potato chips. She has been a journalist for the Detroit News. She has done tons of amazing things. And here she comes with yet. Another interesting thing to help people. Remember a Detroit neighborhood that I think we're gonna mostly lose soon. Aren't we? What's happening? This is part of this long ranging project. I hope to create that would affect other Detroit neighborhoods to that could replicate it, how do you preserve the memories of a place like Boston, Edison? Bright more in this case Delray, and it's done through the residents being able to record each other stories be able to take some sort of collective place to store maybe old family photos and films and pass it along the future generations, you know? May be can be stored at the Detroit. Historical museum, maybe the Reuther library, whoever will hold onto it and the neighborhood having a copy to keep permanently. And so they'll raise kind of the test subject for this. But I think it could be replicated some calling these citizen archives. So let's start with the beginning. If you will specifically round Delray, why is that neighborhood so special for me, it's special because it dates back to the late eighteen hundreds. And so you've got really the turning point of Detroit where it goes from farm and furtrher aiding to industrial on steroids. You have all the different things that they made from cigars to iron stoves, then turns into cars and high-tech and everything we're doing now. So that turn of the century is fascinating to me and Delray is really a great example of a small community that was largely like farmers and fishermen right on the Detroit river converting over to. Two massive factories, everything from GM's Fleetwood plant, you got the wastewater treatment plant, you have teen number of small factories along the riverfront, and it becomes a huge, cultural and ethnic landing place for all the immigrants coming into the city as well. So you have all these factories. You've got all these people true mosaic of Detroit nece is all symbolized in del Rey. So it's like southwest Detroit along the Detroit river by Fort, Wayne, and it's you know, few square miles. But it was a village before it got annexed into Detroit. So it it truly symbolizes this independent spirit. This can-do attitude that to me is is everything the city represents people forget that. They're actually quite a few villages that were annexed into Detroit. Hamtramck is one that still exists. But there was Springwells. Parts of Grosse Pointe township became the far east side. There was a variety of places that kind of got subsumed into the city, and then it just kinda stopped. Around the nineteen twenties or so where the city stopped expanding. And so those individual neighborhoods have still have their character. One of the things when I talked to people about Detroit that I try to remember remind them. If your context is suburban metro Detroit, eighty Detroit neighborhood is about the size of a suburb. Grandma, Rosedale is about the same population as Ferndale. And so you really cannot make Detroit as one thing it really is a mosaic because it is so big and those places have individual stories, which is one of the reasons why think that your project so interesting, especially if we can scale it up, and for people who don't know Delray is where that new Gordie Howe bridge is going to go a lot of things are about to be completely demolished. Absolutely. When Gordy Howe was located in Delray. They did it purposefully Detroit in the fifties had more or less done the same thing to del Ray that it did the black bottom instead of raising though, the whole neighborhood tearing it down they industrialized it. They made it. So that no more reser. Essential is going to go in Delray Alto. They didn't inform the residents necessarily of that decision. It was done in a way to place. All your your big things that you don't want anywhere else got put there. And unfortunately, as a result of that, even though the community maintained very strong cultural center as you're noting and had a lot of ties to what they wanted. Things were put there to get them out of the way. So you had the wastewater treatment plant went in the late thirties. Then you had I seventy five barrels through in the sixties the plant started closing in the seventies eighties nineties, you had a lot of other issues with gangs and drugs and everything else that happened in any other big city all took place in Delray that caused both people to leave and for things to kind of fall apart will then rightly so to some degree, and I don't wanna make anybody out to be a villain. This is just how it went Delray was positioned for the Gordy Howe international bridge, and it made sense because there was so much open land because. Of properties being devalued. And so much was torn apart over the decades. So now over two hundred structures have been torn down from Kovacic classic bar two churches being shuttered to four thousand trees have been completely removed. So it's a blank slate. They can put in this big campus of a international bridge span to compete with medi Maroons international span, the ambassador, and the reason is simple. A lot of people wanted another option outside of the embassador bridge and supporting necessarily that business and this one will be run by Canada, more or less with the state of Michigan's help. In the meantime, though, it's never gonna help delleri. They're gonna go straight off the bridge on seventy five. So this isn't even like a case of well. Del Rey might get some restaurants, and they might get some new investment because of the bridge. No, it is simply a place to put something that didn't need to be anywhere else. Well, there's kind of expand with without too. Because trucks do end up going off. Of the embassador bridge into southwest neighborhoods. And it does a lot of damage and creates a lot of environmental concerns as well. So in some ways getting that directly to the freeway for those big trucks makes a lot of sense. But it still will arrays a large portion of what's left, you know, one of my favorite places in del. Ray you're talking about I seventy five barreling through is tucked underneath I seventy five and that would be the carbon f let a club that is a fun place to have a drink is that in the is that in the footprint is that gonna stay, you know, some houses and businesses that were around I seventy five had the option to the bridging
