There's no question and I want to resume some activities that I would ordinarily be doing in the fall like going to a football game. Spent planning to spend holidays with my family. Um, and yet covert 19 is still a very real threat. So I know that the big 10 has been studying the issue. I know that. They've got some of the best experts on their campuses know that the advancements that have been made in terms of testing have given them some greater confidence that they can engage in a truncated Season safely on DH, So I, you know, support the decision that they've made. It's not my decision to make it is it is theirs and they will they will move forward. My conversation with my fellow governors. Last night we were talking a little bit about Spectators and the prospect of that and various types of arenas and we're all trying to do what we can to engage in some normalcy. Keep people safe, and there's not a perfect way to do this, but we continue to watch the virus prevalence in Michigan. We continue Tio determine if there are additional things that we can do safely. But if we want to preserve that is an option. We've gotta be serious about masking up and we've got to be serious about this reengagement of our economy in the in the safest way, and that's everyone doing their part. OK, governor. The last question will come from Brian able with TV seven. Governor. Good afternoon. Thank you. Those collections actually for Secretary Benson on the question is with such sensitivity around election integrity and given the recent mistake with the early 400 ballots, How can Michiganders be absolutely confident that their vote will not only be counted but becomes it properly. Oh, I think you can look for our success of the elections we've had this year. We've We've got some great protections in place. I think you're you're talking about a computer glitch. That was that was quickly addressed and fixed A soon as it was brought to our attention on those voters have have sense received the correct ballots. Look, the next seven weeks are going to be a There's going to be an incredibly intense amount of scrutiny on our state. On and people will be working to take every pick apart. Every single action that I that are clerks take on when you're dealing with Millions of ballots. Millions of voters millions of people voting from home for the first time. We all have to be focused on ensuring that the process goes as smoothly as possible and building partnerships to ensure that's the case. That's what we've been doing. That's what I've been doing since I took office and we've certainly been doing With with full focus on November this entire year in the midst of a pandemic s O That said, I'm proud of the three elections we've successfully held this year. I'm proud that we've Avoided some of the missteps that other states have encountered with long lines at the polls, and that we've built on implemented best practices like a ballot tracking process to ensure people contract their ballots that we've implemented for this first time statewide postelection audit so that citizens can have confidence. That our machines are accurately counting our ballots on. We're going to continue to be transparent every step of the way about all of the issues that we encounter this election and also ensuring that from the moment the polls close to the moment we have the full count of all of our votes that our citizens and the public nationally knows where we are and every step of the process. That's one of the reasons why we created the website. I talked about earlier Michigan dot gov slash election Security because we know in the weeks ahead the efforts to confuse voters or feed on anxieties and fears and challenges, too. So seeds of doubt in our electorate about their confidence and affect their confidence in the process are going to be rampant regardless of what what, what I do or what anyone else does, and so we're going to continue to be transparent. We're going to continue to operate the election Security website to inform voters about everything we're doing and respond to their questions on. We're going to continue doing what we've done successfully thiss entire year, which is inform our citizens about their options to vote this fall.

And we don't know about it or don't get around to it. So I saw an item in the Detroit free press. That of the vehicles on the road. Get this. This is a shocking number. Fifty, three, million vehicles. Were recalled last year. I that's unbelievable. Fifty, three million. And Some of these things are piddly. Others are life and death kind of things and we just don't seem to. With all the noise of our lives we don't seem to know a lot of times that there is a situation involving one of our vehicles.

Will Big Ten be next conference to cancel its fall college football season?
"To what Was reported earlier today by Pete Family. Another mid American conference today. They've already canceled their false sports schedule. They say they're going to try to play college football in the spring. According to Pete Family. Big 10 presidents are meeting today they are considering or that what is on the table. Is that they would cancel football for the fall, impossibly moved to spring. Gordon. What we see from the Big 10 commissioner. There are reports out that he Courtesy of the Detroit Free Press. The Big 10 commissioner prefer spring college football season. Now let me break this down in a couple of different ways won a lot of people going to talk about covert. We are obsessed with covert. We're talking about Cove. It rightfully so in a lot of ways, That's something that we should take seriously. I have to remain cynical. I have to remain Questioning these type of things, because I think there's something else at hand here. And I'm not getting a lot of pushback on it. And I know that they bring up the spring schedule and I I hope it's about covert. I hope it's about health. I hope it's about the safety of people involved. I really do hope it's about that. I do. But I'm just not convinced it's all about that. I think that Yeah, they do care someone about it. Yes, sure. Absolutely. More. I think about this, the more I think that there is a turd on that punch bowl, and that turd was laid in there or around this time last week when the Pac 12 had their players have a list of demands. Even to the Pac 12 presidents. I got a bad feeling that that's part of this. You know, the big 10. Some of those players followed suit. I just thought it was really interesting that today I see a report. Courtesy of ESPN is well, a stadium that Big 10 players from the Ohio State University have said, Hey, we're good. We love the guidelines. We are ready to play. It happens today as the president's air about Teo me of the Big 10. Something doesn't seem right. Something seems a little off. So it makes me wonder about that type of thing. If this is about and I do think there's a percentage of it what it is. I'm not sure there. There is a concern about people. There's a concern about health and safety. And it will. Certainly I'm sure we'll get the people in here so they can. They're 22 year old athletes. They're they're healthy horses. They'd be perfectly fun. I know, man. I know more than likely. Yeah, they'd be perfectly fine. And we've been talking about it for a while. It takes is one even if it were one. I don't know if that were to happen, Hell. My gosh, This is an ugly conversation have but we have to have it is that there are guys who die of heatstroke every year. In high school and college football, and it keeps going And I would wonder even if a person were to die from this in college football. It would maybe keep going. But when we're talking about a list of demands from players where they want compensation, where they want equitable treatment. Wonder if that's a little bit too much for the university presidents. They think, Okay, we'll wait. Maybe we'll wait till spring.

Her wallet and things like that, but frankly, they're encouraging people to put their guns in these faults. In the console in jeeps and trucks and cars. And the reason why this is significant is law enforcement says that gun fact is really a problem. Now, the more concealed carry permits. There are the more guns are being stolen. People pop them in the glove box. They put him under the sea. They go surfing. They go swimming. They go hiking and they leave weapons in the car. All right. So as one guy you spoke to obviously loves the top down and you know the windows dropped or whatever you call it on a jeep on me, and he says, everything is exposed on if you stick something in the glove box that's easily popped open with maybe screwdriver, Crowbar.

Failed to pay taxes? If you make more than $100,000, the IRS may pay you a visit.
"You have an outstanding debt to the IRS in a move that criminals have to be so excited about. They can't even stand it. The IRS has announced they are going to send revenue agents to your home or business to try to get you to pay the money that you owe the irs. Now this is people who haven't filed a return or haven't paid taxes they owe or potentially going to see a visit from the irs. Now the problem with that is that people who are Crooks See. This is a huge opportunity to impersonate. Irs agents and show up at your home or business with a fake ID and fake demands for money that they're going to be randomize ing who they go after the crooks. You are probably somebody who doesn't even know money to the irs but it can be very intimidating if somebody shows up and says their revenue agent for the IRS and they want money from you so the IRS is targeting people who own their own business and people who make more than one hundred thousand dollars a year. But the crooks aren't GonNa go buy anything like that they're gonNa go after anybody and pretend that they're an irs agent now the IRS says that they're going to highly train these people who show up in person demanding money from you the IRS. Also says that they're not going to require that you buy any kind of gift cards or anything like that to pay the IRS. And you should know anybody who says that. Virtually any of the scams we deal with now that that is an automatic tip off that somebody is a scam. Stor where they say. You're supposed to buy some kind of Gift Card or Green Dot Card or whatever so. Your utilities aren't shot off or whatever it is or that you're in trouble with the court and you're supposed to know that that is scam. Stir one a one and if you're visited by somebody who pretends are actually is an irs agent. One way you'll know is a real irs. Employee is not going to demand that you turn over cash right then then. I can demand that you buy any kind of gift cards. And here's the other thing the. Irs has shows so short staffed that the number of people who actually be visited. Bilo jet IRS AGENT IS TEENSY. Teensy teensy tiny so no that somebody showing up. The odds are going to be overwhelming. That it's a scam. Stir impersonating the. Irs out a real agent. A real agent will try anything to get you to write a check to the US Department of the Treasury. They're not going to be trying to get you to hand them over cash or anything else like that. And the IRS told a reporter with Detroit. Free press that they'll be presenting a lot of ideda people to prove they're really an irs agents will what garbage that is because criminals. Play that game as well. So the most important thing whether it's a legit visit or much more likely fake visit. Don't be intimidated by anybody. Even if it's a legit visit the. Irs has a job to do a nasty job but going and knocking on people's doors. I think is wrong. Mean and stupid

been talking on there for so long now about how this great wrong that the Democrats are inflicting on Donald Trump and by direct extension all sixty three million plus of us who voted for him discreet wrong is going to create fire it's going to create an energy among his supporters not limited to the base but among his supporters many people voted form far beyond anything we have seen in modern American politics that is a great thing that is likely at this point to tsunami tsunami Democrats out of power all over the country and sweep trump to reelection if and what did I say last week crying if we can harness it if we can control it if we can ride it but if we let that fire that energy consumers and become like wild Banshees it costs us then we lose races that we should win because one of the best things we have going for us right now is whenever people they may look at us and we look at conservatives and a look at the president's Hey Hey I don't agree with him on this I don't agree with them and that I think they're over the line on this but when the alternative is that while bunch on the left wants them in power let's not give away their advantage you know that they're the wild

don't agree with you in one way or set up we don't have a voice the Democrats liberals the negative side they are constantly over over over with all the negative you have every major news outlets reported daily about how screwed up from this house moved up if conservatives are out also trump supporters are and you have very you undo such as yourself giving a voice to our site it worked hard on it there's an old saying it's always best should be nice until it's time to not be nice anymore we're approaching that time very rapidly at this point we need a voice how do we get our boys fox news is starting to fail us yeah the fact yeah yeah every day I see major Lawrence you fox news with the big picture eight if you're lucky spell your garbage hardly ever see the same coverage our site so how do we get heard all day now starting to fight fire with fire well and that's where I disagree and listen to your intensity is is what saved America in sixteen that's how Donald Trump one that saved America starting with the US Supreme Court so yeah it that in not the only way but a big weight is the voice that you're talking about but you know far better than I'd because you've served in

microphone in the meeting and then one of one one one of your own people is talking then you started to chant and and to me that kind of energy is positive and productive where I draw the line is

"Story state and federal health officials have been investigating mysterious long illnesses linked to vaping the new update is that vitamin E. acetate is the focus of this investigation it's being found in high levels in samples that were tested that contain cannabis not in nicotine vaping products but the investigation still continues for more on this we spoke to Kristen Jordan Shamus she's a writer at the Detroit Free Press for that and also the first in the nation band on sales of flavored vape products in Michigan one day governor Gretchen Witmer announced in Michigan and emergency administrative rule based on the findings of the state department of health and Human Services which found that E. cigarette use and high schoolers had risen seventy eight percent from two thousand seventeen to two thousand eighteen and forty eight percent in middle schoolers and her concern and their health and safety and she said that a lot of the rape products in the E. cigarette products are marketed to kids Michigan already have a law that bans the sale of these products to people under the age of eighteen but the findings show that they're still using using those products yeah so everything's going to be eliminated all online and retail sailor sales of flavored vape products with the exception of tobacco flavored E. cigarettes. there how is this going to be implemented because I I saw that this only going to be a six month ban at first and then it can be renewed for another six months. the temporary ban and it's an emergency action and it'll be filed with the state department the secretary of state's office and once it's filed with the secretary of state's office which should happen in the next few weeks the battle become immediate for the last six months and then the governor may choose to renew it after another six months do you know why I was just six months are they trying to like you see if there's any change that happens it's a pretty short amount of time. it is a short amount of time but I think it's because it's this administrative rule isn't something that's going to the legislature is something that's been voted on and approved it that action is being taken from the highest office in the state now we've been hearing about the stories we've had two deaths related to this so far one in Illinois and then one in order again where they did say that it was because the person was smoking marijuana they products in Michigan specifically there's six lung infections that are being tied to vaping right now what we know about these cases. we don't know a whole lot about them the state department of health and Human Services joining with the national agencies to investigate no sex case and we know that all six people in Michigan were hospitalized they were all critically ill and they haven't been able to really pinpoint at least in Michigan Michigan cases one common cause might be. that's part of the whole problem with this that it's so difficult to really pinpoint what it is alot of people have pointed to the flavorings in these products because while they're safe for consumption human consumption we don't know the effects once they're Eris allies and inhaled the Washington post's just had a report out and this proves how complicated this is they have narrowed down on one contaminant they think that is in the Meryl one of the products specifically doesn't have doesn't even have to do with the E. cigarette ones and it's a derivative of vitamin E. vitamin E. acetate and it's was found in a lot of these samples that were taken from people that got sick and that we had reported having all of these you know this new lung disease out what we're looking into and it just proves how complicated is because we're working with two different things nicotine E. cigarettes and marijuana vape pen and it is pretty tricky to I mean they're just starting to research these things these products are relatively new and they haven't had the rigorous testing that a lot of other products have had that are on the market and the science just isn't there a doctor I spoke with yesterday was saying you know it takes decades worth of research to really have an idea of what the impact our long term of using these products and with the same with this season weren't where it really won't know for so long and we're barely starting to study it's really just coming to head with all this the other angle of this is with this band that's gonna go happened there in Michigan a lot is the small business owners vape shop owners are worried that they could lose their business a lot of them say you know just these they products themselves are about twenty percent of their businesses actually there are some that only sell the products and arguably they'll

"Grumbled about the size of your tax refund or even writing a huge check for your federal income taxes in April. Don't expect things to change without tinkering with a W four. And if you think the current form is a headache, get ready for a migraine with the new W4. form for twenty twenty so says, Susan Tom poor personal finance columnist at the Detroit Free Press. Susan. What do we have with this break? Now what we have our draft proposals and in draft forms. It may not change much more from this. And what the IRS is trying to do with this new W4., which is you withholding allowance of difficult. That's what you give your employer to say, you know, withhold XYZ from my paycheck. There are new sections in there that relate to your income, your other income and deductions, and this is where the complication will really ignite if you will, if you focus on this, the idea is the more better information you put in the better year withholding reflect what you actually. Oh, so things would even out, you wouldn't get a big refund, because she wouldn't have paid too much in, but you wouldn't know too much as well. But the problem or the challenge, if you will will be figuring out forecasting. You're other income projecting other income, and some people may not want to share that information with their employer because which is on for a of this new section with his other income, that's where you would be adding things like your interest or dividends. Maybe some if you had an inheritance it was all sitting in the Bank, that would be interested income, you may not want to share that with an employer.

She's written a piece entitled, new confusing W four form is coming for twenty twenty. Wow. What about strategies? What are the pros say about whether or not to include your income to offer that up? Well, you know, they say in fairness, the IRS is trying to prevent under withholding but you know because if you do not withhold enough there, you can run up against a penalty p really writing out a super huge check. That means you didn't withhold nearly enough, but they're also saying, you know, there's other ways that you can get around it on this form, you can do the old shortcut and say withhold any additional amount to maybe you just want to withhold, you know, put that money, you know, put that dollar sign in there and forget about giving all the details, if you will. But you'd still have to work it out figure out how much other income, you'd want to withhold an easy way of doing that this year is perhaps, if you had to write out a check for. Say five thousand dollars and we're through the half year, you know, take out how many paychecks you have left and look at the size of the check he wrote, and then have more withheld, you know divided by the number of patriots.

Measles, CDC And Michigan discussed on This Weekend with Gordon Deal
"Outbreak situation? Someone who was born between nineteen fifty seven nineteen eighty nine. The CDC had these recommendations for one measles mumps rubella with called the vaccine. So if you were born in that range odds are that the doctor would have told your parents, you need one vaccine and you'll be protected, but in about my eighty nine the CDC change recommendations and said people need to vaccines to be fully and adequately protected from measles. Especially in an outbreak situation or a situation where they might be traveling nationally if they work in healthcare situation, or if they're in a, you know, educational institution or something like that where they're around a lot of people, and so that recommendation went through, but there are a lot of people who were born in that range who just might not have gotten that second back pain and ordinarily one vaccine is enough when you don't have an outbreak situation one vaccine will cover you it's, you know, more than ninety percent affective, but it outbreaks relation because me so. Contagious, you might need to. And so that's why doctors and health professionals in this area are saying, you know, we have an outbreak. Check your your record. Check your documents. If you don't have any documentation of measles vaccine, which a lot of people don't have, you know, I'm in my forties. And we don't have any documentation of my vaccines. They could just, you know, go get go get a shot or talk to your doctor about getting shot to make sure that that's the best thing for you to clarify. So so in nineteen eighty nine the CDC said you need you need the second one or you need the second one. If there's ever an outbreak. The CDC started routinely vaccinating children with two they started giving all children, you know, as as sort of like the recommendation, they'll say, okay, you'll get one between twelve and fifteen months old and another one between the ages of four and six so all children's started getting them right about that. And that offers the best protection. That's that is the best protection against meals to vaccines. But the problem is that there were. Quite a few people in that injury. Who never got that second dose and ordinarily that would not be a big deal. But in this situation, it is a big deal. So if you don't have documentation say, you're of, you know, forty plus like view in me can Guinea just call the doctor and say, hey, I just want to be sure can I get a shot. Yeah. Exactly. Call your doctor and have a conversation and say, here's here my concerns, and do you think that another vaccine would be a smart idea for me? And just make sure that that's the right thing to do. And the doctor can give you another vaccine or you can even go to the health department and get back in there. You can go some pharmacies. Also have them speak with Kristen Janus reporter at the Detroit Free Press part of the USA today network. She's written a piece entitled born between nineteen fifty seven and nineteen Eighty-nine. You may not be protected from the measles outbreak. Explain a little bit about what you're going through in in the state of Michigan where you are. Right. So here in Michigan. We've had we had a traveler come in. And that's the other thing to know is that measles with thought to be radically in the United States in two thousand. So we had vaccinated enough about population where we didn't have measles really affecting us all that heavily. It was usually brought in by someone from a country where they didn't do routine vaccinations across their entire population. And so that's what happened in the census at someone who was traveling. You know, came to the states, we believe that person or health officials believe that person picked up the the virus in New York City, which is also in the middle of outbreak. And then brought it here to Michigan, and then travelled around, you know, that south Oakland community in Michigan and spread it within the community without knowing that he was doing so, and, you know, had those sort of cold like coughing sneezing that sort of thing, and it wasn't until the rash broke out.

"If you had measles as a child or were born prior to nineteen fifty seven and are considered immune by the CDC double-check. And that's especially true. If you've been to a known exposure site, there's a chance you're not as safe as you think you are more from Kristen shameless reporter at the Detroit Free Press. Kristen what's up here in an outbreak situation? Someone who was born between nineteen fifty seven and nineteen eighty nine. The CDC had these recommendations for one measles mumps rubella, which is called the magazine. So if you were born in that range odds are the doctor would have told your parents, you need one vaccine and you'll be protected, but in about nine hundred eighty nine the CDC recommendations and said people need to vaccines to be fully and adequately protected from me, those especially in an outbreak situation or in a situation where they might be traveling internationally, if they work in healthcare situation, or if they're in a, you know, educational institution or something like that where they're around a lot of people, and so that recommendation went through, but there are a lot of people who were born in that range who just might not have gotten that second vaccine and ordinarily one vaccine is enough when you don't have an outbreak situation one vaccine will cover you it's you know, more than ninety percent affective, but it outbreak situation because meals is so. You might need to. And so that's why doctors and health professionals in this area are saying, you know, we have an outbreak Jack, you're your record. Check your documents. If you don't have any documentation of a measles vaccine, which a lot of people don't have, you know, I'm in my forties. And we don't have any documentation of my vaccine, they just, you know, go get it. Go get a shot or talk to your doctor about getting a shot to make sure that that's the best thing to do. Clarify. So so in nineteen eighty nine the CDC said you need you need the second one or you need the second one. If there's ever an outbreak. CBC started routinely vaccinating children with two they started giving all children, you know, as a sort of like the recommendation, they'll say, okay, you'll get one between twelve and fifteen months old and another one between the ages of forty six.

"Windows can be found in many of newer, higher end homes in suburban Detroit and throughout the country. But the construction might surprise you. They're made of shipping containers reporter, Christina hall at the Detroit Free Press has been looking at them. Chris what have you found? Well, we had heard about a home that was being built in Ferndale, which is one of the Detroit suburbs. And this is pretty high end, obviously, it's on the market for four hundred fifty thousand and this was interesting because this was apparently another home we had heard about a home in Royal Oak, which is a neighboring suburbs from Ferndale container home that was built several years ago that is occupied. And so I started doing a little research, and I found that home, and I thought this wine, and then I saw a couple of others. And I spoke to the folks toward the house wanted to see what it looked like. And when I spoke to one of the folks in in Ferndale. He said, yeah, we have. Handful of these going up, and then I talked to a builder. He said, yeah, we're doing a few here in Ferndale. We're doing something. Royal Oak we're talking to folks in Hazel park. And there's been some projects down in Detroit. But this seemed to be one of the first times, it was really picking up steam in the Detroit suburbs. And this these particular subjects we were talking about her in Oakland County, which is just you know, just across from Detroit. And it seemed like most of the development was there. The one of the folks did tell me that there was some interest in developing in McComb county, and that was also possibility for shipping container. How much be probably in a more rural area on some of the areas around the suburb here were more in evicting neighborhoods. Well, so what do supporters say are the benefits of a shipping container home? Well, some folks had said that these might be more durable because they're made of steel. I know the folks that I spoke with here the ladies they were using water per steel. So obviously, you have some talk of possibly a better quality home in terms of the the bones of the house, the structure, one gentleman. I spoke to happen to be in the neighborhood. He said, you know, well, they're wrote a proof, and I don't know. I don't have any proof of that. But I guess it's possible. So there was some potential of. Of strength and durability re- reusing Bob eco-friendly, and and being able to use something that, you know, oftentimes people see sitting somewhere. So you mentioned this particular home, you looked at in Ferndale four hundred fifty thousand dollars. I think it was five and a half shipping containers eighteen hundred square feet. Where's all the expense coming from? Well, some of it was one of the coaches that they wanted to do in the house. Okay. So some of the features that they were pointing out were a lot of the which which was mentioned here. It was talking about the reclaim would for our kitchen island. They also did reclaim would in the laundry area was like reclaim one. And then pipe the gaps were you know, as a handmade, but these were, you know, a steel and wood, and they were on a lot of that type of a more custom construction inside the home. There was tile in the kitchen, gleaners Thailand, the one of the bats at least. So a touches even on some of the door polls kitchen.
