Outside of hotel. Quarantine an eighty year old woman. Some of her close contacts. And then there's other people in her circle that have symptoms and they're expecting more cases to come forward. I mean are we ever gonna know this thing. Well the answer is maybe not going to be with us forever. It just depends on how we control it. So i mean just you know. It's not good for south australia. This happened But we have said on. Chronic has many times now. It's not a question of pride that we've said it but everybody knows it that we're importing people who deserve to come back to australia. Australians living overseas who want to come home and the coming home from high prevalence area so the coming home with the covid nineteen virus and sometimes covid nineteen itself and quota quarantine has got to remain secure for the virus not to escape and we'll only find out as time goes on maybe later on today.

Forget Barrel-Aged Whiskey: This Company Whips Up Instant Aged Spirits in the Lab
"This is a little test. If you're a fan of craft of things that require years of patients to pay off, say a Christmas tree farm, a newly designed luxury car or an eighty year. Old Scotch time is a worthwhile investment to you on the other hand. If speed matters more to you than craft, you may see years invested in, say those Christmas trees as so much wasted time. It's much faster to make an artificial tree after all and you can still hang lights on them but what if you could have convenience and craft at the same time? Seems impossible doesn't well, not anymore at least for one particular beverage, scientific innovation has come to whiskey. There's nothing about whisky that's new. The date of its invention is a little fuzzy but historians say may have existed as long ago as fourteen hundred ad or maybe even further back than that today, the longer it ages the more expensive it is and two connoisseurs typically the better it tastes but not to the founders of silicon. Valley's bespoke in spirits, Stu Aaron, and Martin. JANACEK say they've come up with a laboratory process for making whisky and only a few days if they took my made quiz being the second group, they call the years it takes to age say mark antiquated and wasteful. bespoke spirits doesn't call itself a distillery. Rather the company is Spirits Tech Company intended to help other distillers, grocery chains and celebrities create custom spirits that can move like lightning from lab to store shelves. The name speaks to its intent bespoke means custom-made. The startup uses the lab to bring the barrel to the spirits rather than the other way around in other words, it's using material science massive amounts of data analysis to. Create spirits according to Forbes rather than putting spirits into oak barrels. The company places selected tiny pieces of wood in precise combinations in a kettle with spirits in char- heat and churn or apply again with scientific precision to mimic the aging process much much faster. The company claims they can create seventeen thousand different flavor combinations in three to five days. Most whisky is aged in barrels for about five years according to CNN. So far spoken has made whisky Tequila Rum and brandy mostly for other companies but they also do sell spirits to consumer specifically a line of different whiskies from classic Bourbons to one made with Ron Whiskey of course, the biggest obstacle, any food or drink made in a lab faces scepticism about and quality when it comes to that question bespoke in his taken home about two dozen awards from spirits tasting events since they launched early this year, that's the social proof. They think they need to grow the rest of the business, not just custom blending new products behind the scenes, but also helping distilleries rescue batches of expired beer or spirits from distributors that aren't quite right which seems. To be a good foundation for a promising business, still it's hard to grow a whole new category of anything without enough money. Early, this month, the small business one, two point six, million dollars in seed funding from hall of fame, Baseball Star Derek jeter, and Silicon Valley scientists TJ Rodgers purists may turn up their noses at spoken in America. Popular rival maker's mark is not only one of the oldest whiskey brands. Its history is at selling point founder bill. Samuel senior bought a distillery in Loretto Kentucky in nineteen, fifty three but that distillery began making whisky as far back as the early eighteen hundreds. Maker's marks message today is still it's one bottle at a time every time. And an oppression bit of copy anticipating the changes coming to the Industry today they also say it's been a widely held belief around here that character isn't made by machine. Ouch. Regardless of an expected war between purists and innovators, the time may turn out to be just right for bespoke in the pandemic is spiking demand for spirits but trade wars are making them more expensive to import according to CNN. And when you can't import easily making new spirits here, bottles that can get to the shelf in the blink of an eye could fill a growing demand. and to that investors like, Derek. JETER may well say, cheers.
Plans for Chicago's Lake Shore Drive overhaul move forward
"North Lake shore drive is getting rebuilt or make that redefined as part of the years long redefined drive project, the Illinois in Chicago Departments of transportation of and gathering feedback, and coming up with potential ways to overhaul the drive from grand to Hollywood. They've narrowed it down to a few options and they're looking for your input ahead of an upcoming public meeting Chicago tonight's Nick Bloomberg takes a look. Lakeshore drive is iconic but with icon status comes aging infrastructure some up to eighty years old and are in need of replacement, and so can we look at some opportunities to really reinvasion the area and solve problems while we rebuild the road problems not just like crumbling infrastructure, but also safety and mobility for all kinds of users. One of the things we heard definitely was improved access to. North shore drive itself. But really to the park, which is an iconic park based on roadway needs and public input planners came up with some essentials lakefront access every quarter mile grade separation for the Lakefront trail where it crosses east West streets getting rid of the pesky signal at Chicago, avenue, and reinforcing the shoreline which has taken a beating of late all the things that we see as critical to install. Harbinson what alternative? The alternatives look at ways to improve travel for buses. One would add a fifth lane in the center just for transit another option would convert an existing lane for transit leaving three for general purpose planners are also considering creating one or two lanes usable by buses and by drivers willing to pay a toll, how do we improve and how do we further manage the traffic? How do we further improve the reliability of that transit but as always a major project like this one has raised Concerns about the character of the Lakefront Lakeshore drive needs it's improvements, but we don't want to see lakeshore drive reconfigured to a point where it becomes a an interstate highway Miller. Says past renovations like near McCormick place created that wide interstate feel. He's also hesitant about a trenched roadway like what's on the table at Chicago Avenue WanNa keep that boulevard character to the drive friends of the Parks Twenty Years Ari agrees she's concerned expanding the drive could put parts at risk our preference is that Improvements be made to make traffic flow better to improve transit access, but not to create more lanes for cars, and while she appreciates the project I toward shoreline stability, this project released should be set within a much larger more comprehensive consulation about our late for neurosurgeon problem others think improvements for transit don't go far enough Kyle Lucas of the group better streets. CHICAGO SAYS ACTIVISTS HAD TO FIGHT TO KEEP the option that converted a lane for buses only, and he wants planners to think bigger like bus rapid transit shifting transportation closer to the edge of the city, and then creating something that's similar to an L. Line a fraction of the cost. Another idea protected bike lanes in both directions since Lucas says, the Lakefront trail isn't always practical for cyclists and none of that taking away from access for cars but we think the data suggests that. If we were to actually invest in alternative of transportation. We need way less space for cars on the Lakefront we could dramatically reduce the footprint of the road and create more park space for people to enjoy and kate low of UIC worries about focusing too much on congestion since transportation is the biggest contributor to greenhouse gases. In the US, we should instead have reducing vehicle miles traveled be one of the primary motivating factors while she appreciates. That improving transit is one of the goals at the heart of a it's about enabling auto commutes during the peak our peak our downtown commuters are disproportionately affluent. So this project would speed their commute and not address transit as on the South and West sides for their part I dont and CDOT say the project is multimodal focused on the future and effort to balance a lot of different interests. Everyone loves lake shore drive for different reasons. We've tried to. Weave into our designs public comment on the five proposed designs is open through November ninth for Chicago Tonight I'm nick. Bloomberg?

Interview with Misty Copeland
"Hey everyone it's currently this show might sound a bit different today because the scam is still working from home for the time being due to cove nineteen. Today Misty Copeland joins me and skin from the couch she the most famous ballet dancer in the world she made history when she became the first black female principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre. She has also a bestselling author philanthropist and advocate her new children's book. Bun heads comes out this September mystique. Thank you so much for being here. I am so excited. To, be talking to you welcome to skin from the couch. Thank you so much. I'm really excited to. So I was kicked out of ballet at age four. So naturally made sense that I. Did this interview with you very excited for a cer- bond over all things ballet. So we're going to start how I like to start all interviews with just skim your resume. I started bollywood thirteen years old. It was not something that I had thought possible or knew anything about a my stumbled into it was discovered at my boys and Girls Club, the local community center across the street from public. School in San Pedro California, it was there that my valley teacher taught me my first class on a basketball court and she told me I was a prodigy after an hour of working with her she ended up inviting me to train with her in her studio on full scholarship and I ended up moving. In with her and her family to be able to train lean tensely for the next three years I trained for another year and a half at a different studio. By the time, I was seventeen about four years of training. I was living in New York City dancing professionally for American Ballet Theatre I went on to dance as a quarter ballet member for seven years I was the only black woman in American ballet theatre for the first decade of my career I then went on to become the third black female soloist in their history. In in two thousand, fifteen I became the first ever black principal Ballerina. Ballet, theater now, in their eighty year history found a lot of incredible opportunities along the way amazing opportunities for endorsement deals things that you don't typically see ballet dancer getting the opportunity to do estee lauder in Saco in. Getting the chance to perform with Prince and Taylor. Swift. I've had a very diverse career adding author to it. Extremely excited that I have the opportunity to. Children's books along with other genres but I'm really excited about this upcoming book on heads. I just got the book and it's fantastic. So I'm very excited to give it to people as gifts. Obviously you've lived in the public eye now for many years and you have a lot of fans especially, it's Kim H. Q.. What is something that your fans don't know about you something we can. Google. Recipe Ah. So this is proof of this. I'm I'm probably one of the clumsy as people we recently moved into. Will me my husband bought a home and amazing designer newly renovated everything and yesterday I was enjoying my Sunday with spicy crab kind of jump Eliah and I tripped over the carpet in spilled the whole thing on our Blue Velvet Sofa and how did you have an emergency let cleaner come in and clean like deep clean. The entire thing I am very surprised you. I would. Never Clumsy. How can you be a clumsy Ballerina I think there's something that happens when you're not on stage you're not in the studio where you're so focused. So much of the time on I mean naturally I'm coordinated but I'm there's just so much focus on my body that when I'm not having to do it I feel like I just completely let go I. Think the title of Your next book should be the Clumsy Ballerina just putting that out there. Yes. Next Children's book. I WanNa talk about your childhood. This career podcast, we talked to you so many amazing female leaders at the top of their respective names and obviously so much who each of us are because of how we grew up and the mark that are our parents family structure leave on us, and that informs how we can go out into the world top. Tell us a little bit just about your childhood and what it was like growing up. Yeah I mean absolutely shaped informed how I saw the world and approached everything that I did I was born in Kansas City Missouri, which a lot of people don't really know that I was two years old when my mom left my father and took her four kids on a bus. We drove from Kansas City Missouri to southern California where that was kind of the start of my life That's pretty much in my memory. All I remember is California growing up we moved a lot my mother married two more times had to march children my. Life which is constantly in motion and it was constant. There just wasn't a lot of security and so I think that it made me into the extremely introverted girl that I was I was embarrassed about the way that we lived We didn't have a home a struggled to put food on the table. I'm mother ultimately ended up raising six children on her own, and there was just a lot of hiding things. I wanted in no way to stand out which is pretty crazy. I ended up in a field where I'm out there exposed in performing for. So many but but it was on my terms and so when I could, when I could be a part of something where I could share my voice and my experiences without speaking, it was exactly like what the doctor ordered. It was just what I what I needed as a young person in I didn't have arts in my life until I was thirteen and so it was really difficult for me to survive by the time I started dancing. We were living in a motel just constantly moving from different places whatever we could afford I think that had. I not experienced. You know just no stability a lot of abuse There were so many things that I just felt like I learned to be a survivor and I was just constantly in survival mode. So stepping into the world of ballet, it was like peace and balance and security and consistency, and it was the opposite of what my world was in. So I think that's one of the reasons I was so drawn to it as well as you know I, think a lot of people look at the ballet world and they think you know it's Mean, it is difficult to thrive and to be successful in. All the hardships I felt like if I can get through all I have in my thirteen years with the life I've been living I can get through anything so I felt like I was so prepared not only as a young person to be in in the ballet world, but also as a black woman that was probably the one thing that I really felt secure in my identity was the fact that I mother raised me with the understanding that as soon as I leave the house every morning I'm a black girl in that so I'm going to be viewed and treated in. So there was no a lack of understanding in that area. Of My identity and so I think that really served me well when I entered the very white valet worlds.

I'm Having Boundary Issues With My Parents
"Scott is with us. In Atlanta Georgia, Hi Scott what's up man? Hello Dave a doctor Doni Personal Dave. Congratulations Faculty is such a great addition to the lineup. We'll thank you we agree. Brother Scott and your check in the mail rather. All right waiting for that since I'm on. Right, now, so anyway, to my question my wife and I like I said, we're on baby step two. We've got a ways to go currently cash flowing kids through college my parents who are eighty years old never saved for retirement They've I called in last. Ti- last year You help me guys guide through bailing my parents out of a financial prices and then you send them through FPU and set them up with a financial coach they fully completed both and you also sent me boundaries which I read. last month, they called me to tell me not ask me that they needed need to co-sign a loan for them because my mom wants cosmetic surgery, they can't afford. At eighty though. Yeah. I don't even WANNA ask Ya. Yeah I I could make it exciting but it's It has to do with dental work. So I told them I was not going to dismiss the principles I live by to enable their behavior especially after they have sensibly learn the same thing. I did anyway my birthday was August thirtieth it came and went without a caller card. My father now spends time posting passive aggressive stuff on facebook about how children are supposed to treat their parents. Now I know I'm right by co-signing. And I'm not sure from a relationship standpoint what I'm supposed to do here I wouldn't let them starve or be thrown out on the streets but this is a want not a need. we're all angry obviously one of us who's right. But we're at astounding. Hurt, so bad I'm sorry. Ask got hate that for your brother. So. Here's the deal when it comes to what's the right thing to do financially of course, you know that you're right men when it comes to the right thing to do relationship of course, you know you don't need validation but you're right you drew a boundary that was best for you and for your family and you held them to it and I'm proud of you for that and you're getting to see what the other side of a boundary looks like when Someone Ping's off your the walls or the fences or the boundaries you drew and they choose to react immaturely and the hard part. Is You love your parents. You Love Your Mom you love your dad individually and together, and they're choosing to make their own path as adults are able to do, and that hurts in that stinks and you're going to have to grieve that But the reality is there eighty they're allowed to do whatever they want to do and I would suggest you turn off facebook and don't listen to the nonsense and you continue to be mature and you continue to be adult and yes, you send them cards on their birthday because children honor their parents and you make sure they are included when it's appropriate but. You'RE GONNA have to grieve this part of man because I just stinks. I'm sorry. Hey, for the only the only recompense you've got this, there's only one kind of a relationship that requires money to be transferred. It's called prostitution. And so if your relationship is money dependent. You're in that class. You don't have a relationship in other words. Because that's not a relationship that's a transaction agreed. I agree and so. I'm just saying it's the only way you're. You have to get your brain around Oslo. It's chapter two. I believe maybe one even in boundaries. That says you're not crazy. Remember that chapter. You're not crazy you because when you get this paying off the boundary, John described it. What you start to feel is is that you're crazy like you did something wrong I, a- bad son and my being a legalist being too hard core and so forth, and it's like No. Sky You're just asking how to deal with this. Well. Yeah. I, mean nobody wants to pick up the phone at this point. In so here's the deal call men and check in how's everybody doing. You can be the mature grown-up when there and if they choose to respond in immature ways, then then you can begin to develop new boundaries against that. The challenge with boundaries is we feel so good and we finally draw and we forget that boundaries do have consequences and boundaries do have emotional and feeling you know responses and sometimes people don't respond well to our boundaries and it hurts boundaries when someone feels like they're boundaries, me someone feels like they're entitled to something of yours that they're not entitled to. And you tell them that. Almost, always, there's a response of anger but I think we get so excited that we're drawn boundary that we feel good and we do it and it's like. We forget that tim be up against it and say, well, then you're not my son I, don't love you or if I really do cocaine and the living room. Dad Than I just won't let you be my dad if you're going to throw me out for doing that. I'm sorry we don't do cocaine. We're living room or it's going to be your fault that my. Kids are GONNA fill in the right. So people get to respond to that going to respond grandchildren are going to be hungry because of you because of you giving this thirty six year old without job for two and a half years any money you know this kind of thing and so your it's your fault. Somehow it's not your fault man I'm it does hurt when. It does breaks your heart, and so but I agree with John I mean just call them and have a conversation but here's the thing. Don't try to call them and fix it now doesn't fix they can't they're not there's no fixing this they're just going to get over it or not. Yeah I. Always want to encourage people to be mature party respectful party the relational party, but also protect yourself. Don't keep putting yourself in harm's way. For Scott.

A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.
Highest Paid Stars Lose $200M, And Mackenzie Wins
"Guys welcome tonight we pop I am so excited because man crushed Thursday because Morgan off. So our friends Scott Tweedie is back. On the the Wrong is California dreaming. Okay. So we been listening for two hundred episodes and we've never done a man crush Thursday before one Thursday that you're on. Okay. That's awesome. All right. Well, let's up into the top story because the world's highest paid stars have actually lost a combined total of two hundred, million dollars this past year you guys. So then actually according to Forbes newspapers paid celebrity let's Kylie actually came in first place but she's Short, she's low short. Sheelah my new little coin because she's about a hundred million dollars less of being a billionaire. So how should she adjusted lifestyle so that she can kind of be up there with the big dogs when I'm trying to save one, hundred, billion dollars, it usually comes down to just eating in more. That's kind of the main thing for me that could be it. That could be it. Actually there's a few things I can do. I think it's all about the people that entourage so they could mix it up with their security. God's maybe go skinny guys or get some of this street performers yet they have to. Oh I kind of agree with you hunter because we know from our past conversations that Kylie's post mates bill is insane like she spends thousands and thousands on post mates. So maybe that push her up to be becoming the actual billionaire I think she should just work a little harder is all I'm saying. It would hurt to do two more brand deals make that hundred million I think she's taking the easy road right now I'm feeling bad for someone else's probably feeling bad for her Jeff Bezos ex Mackenzie Scott because she actually has just been named the richest woman in the world. She's worth sixty, eight, billion dollars B billion after their divorce. I don't even know how to like comprehend having this amount of money. Hunter, are you gonNA shoot your shot with her was that you win you win you're going after a rich woman you need to make it seem like you don't need the money you don't want it. So on the first date you say, Hey, let me get this the second date and you say, Hey, let me get this and then on the third day you say, can I have a new car and then that's when you're in. For a chance on this one bit of your appearance that needs to change I think if you lose the hair. Hurrell down. I think you're going to be. HOW COME THEY Got Something to show. Call Him we call him a man crush and then we go ahead and remove my hair from a photo. I don't love this episode. Personally she said look I'm into you. I'm into you having part of this fortune, but you have to go bald, would you do it listen? I know you guys think that I'm this like moralists person who won't like just live a normal life but I'm telling you right now I would do it for just a million I would do for one million. Then I'd be set forever. I'm good with that. I can't believe that she's actually worth this much money. You guys. Well, you know it's crazy is just to put this in perspective Kylie would have to sell her business that she sold for about five hundred million dollars. Every single year twice the air until she was eighty years old to have as much money as Mackenzie Basil says insane in Saturday.
Odds of Catching COVID on a Plane?
"Talk about the odds of catching cove in a fly in. So planes are flying an increasing amount. Obviously, it's still our like normal, but we're getting back there and so far. It doesn't seem like these are the. These are the vehicles of of infection like it doesn't seem like there's mass spread coming from airliners and they're talking about in this article at a Bloomberg, which is really interesting just about the odds of getting, you know basically this researcher Mr Barnett Song about that you have a basically a one in forty three hundred chance of getting Cova nineteen on a full two hour flight. So yeah. When what were your takeaways from this article? Well, that's that that is based upon just the having somebody sitting next to you with A. City actually for two hours and everybody's masked obviously. So there's you know the percentages Kinda change depending on where you are in aircraft right to it. So that's why the probabilities are so low that unless you're really setting real close to that particular person, there's some. Some probabilities with that I, it seems like the. The there's enough flight data and enough tracing history right now that I think you could pretty well say there's not huge outbreaks. I, think the cruise ships have had significant outbreaks of twenty percent of the of the the population on a particular crew's coming positive on an aircraft. We don't see that. So the one in five in numbers not bad one key thing. No one's rubbing suntan lotion on each other. I hope not. then. Traveling. sorry. Didn't mean to cut you off there decided that joking but but yeah. So and then what's interesting about this article is that he's talking about look just a proximity to other passengers. So if if there is one or two people on board that does have it, how close are you to them also you so you know again, tons about the systems on aircraft and he's talking about. How the air is constantly being renewed an airplane cabins. So it seems like every thirty minutes you pretty much brand new sooner than that totally sooner than that every couple of minutes, but it's also so about two thirds of the air's getting dumped overboard about a third is getting recycled back into the cabin after passes through filters and you know that the airlines are changing those HEP filled. On a regular basis plus they're cleaning the cabin so there shouldn't be much going into the NFL to begin what the clog it because the aircraft is clean as they probably have ever been. So, you know that the the air circulation system is going to be working at roughly peak performance you would think right now. So your your risk goes way way down and yeah adding that middle seat opening basically agenda a factor of two probability. So at lower your rate by a factor of two, that's that's a huge improvement for a single seat at that makes a big deal. But it just gets back. into. The likelihood at someone really has it. When not say that people haven't traveled with Kobe did not not know it. But it appears to me having traveled a good bit during this time at least a couple of times we traveled. There is nobody that appears to be even remotely sick or have not. Symptoms or right they don't do any of that and even if they had seasonal allergies in which were in that period of time or season allergies pop up no one at the airport is showing signs of seasonal allergies are just not traveling. So again, think your your risk are. Low and compared to other things that people are doing like going to the grocery store or go into the pharmacy. You Got Kinda put it way down on the list of risk items right now. Yeah, and he also wonder if the people that are saying, Oh, I feel okay. Traveling are probably living a healthier lifestyle in general like may be exercised little more I have no data back that up but you probably think that maybe the people who are healthiest are most likely to like give it a go seems reasonable although I have no data that's. Speculative. In ballpark is probably true I. think that people that feel they would be at risk. Are Not travelling yeah, which is which is good. Yeah which is smart. What? Their third way the odds also. So if I was eighty years old I'm probably not Airplane if I had a weakened immune system for whatever reason I'm probably not traveling on airplanes. So you're I. Think you're right about that. I think people are making smart decisions about how to travel and so what's left and that is the traveling public is in pretty good shape and and the right age demographic where they're not going to have severe consequences if they do happen to pick it up. So I I think you're partially right about that.
Ken Nguyen: Republic Bridging the Gap Between Investing and Startups
"We can grander founder and CEO of the public and really excited to speak with you. Today can about republic and so moved to super innovative things. You guys are doing with crowdfunding in republic note in particular. So thanks much for joining us. Brian thank you so much for having me. Wonderful being year. For some people probably haven't heard about Republic Right but republic east of connected with Angel Lists and lists of course had the big impact on crowdfunding I mean there's also growing list right that has come out that we've had on the podcast before as well. Speak a little bit about your background time angels and sort of how that evolves into starting republic. I started out my career securities attorney in New York, and then over time went into asset management in back into academia. So back in twenty, three, thirteen, I got a chance to get introduced to novel and injuries team and became their general counsel Wendy roll out his new investment product costs indication right did everyone knows about but injuries syndication is only available to millionaires or accredited investors then under president, Obama is a change. In US law and very relevant for blockchain laid on as well that did change in the law allow non accredited meaning. Anyone doesn't matter what income and net worth to invest in private securities, and that became fully legal in two thousand sixteen and that's when I left. Angeles to Launch Republic with a-list ended up invested in us. So there a significant backer among many of the VC's suggested to heritage between to companies. Role and yeah, I think many people have heard of the jobs act in in that regulation. So tells a little bit of what was that changed at happened in two thousand sixteen and you know what was the opportunity that opened up back then? If I may take a walk down memory lane or history lane and go little bit far back through the Great Depression in the United States back in the nineteen thirties easily eighty years ago after that will regulate is in DC decided, hey to avoid investigating defrauded no-one can invest in private securities in private company unless they really Ridge if they rich, we assume that this fisted and can you know tolerate the loss of capital that went on for eighty years in even though in the US people spend like eighty billion dollars a year and lottery ticket. And the same amount addict casino, and yet you have to be a millionaire to invest in start it obviously stop making sense a while back, but it took the Obama administration and a change in the law of for that to really now opened a gateway so that anyone if they go through a platform like republic can invest in early stage, Google early stay facebook or a restaurant even and will little bit behind compared to European counterparts particularly the UK and other countries in the EU that had allow up for democratized private investing years before the US. So what inspired you to start Republican? was there anything that you saw during your time angel which convinced you that there was a problem worth solving here? The problem with stuffing I think goes a little bit back before my time at is so my family immigrated to the US from Vietnam in we stuttered out in Palo Alto in the bay area. Just because you're right in the thick of innovation in at Tam Amazon and Google new startups and everyone wanted to invest but like we weren't accredited so we weren't able to invest and even neighbors who were credited meaning millionaires, doctors, lawyers this still couldn't invest either. So Cadillac the teenage me was like men I wish I get to put a little bit of money into Amazon Google early on but couldn't and I think catalyzed stay with me and I went on and became a lawyer Working Wall Street and still couldn't invest privately us so that desire. To make venture capital private investing more accessible I. think There's a little bit of a personal background behind that an angel is each is Amado that when I knew about I was like, wow, these guys are making it possible for my oldest siblings who are physicians and engineers to invest. That's really cool and so that's why I joined injuries back in two thousand thirteen does only a glimmer of the possibility. What we do at Republic is Cadillac to hope that a single mom Vietnam Ecuador when they can invest like five dollars in Assad of in Silicon Valley. blockchain and ICO
Jeff Simone of Reaction Recovery
"Hi Jeff First of all let me start by saying. Thank you so much for doing this episode with me. I am super excited to learn more about you and to get to meet you. I, guess not in real life, but in virtual real life. I grey. Hello Angela. My pleasure yet thanks for doing this. So let's just start with telling the listeners a little bit about you and what you do. Yeah. Yes. My Jeff I'm I'm a doctor of pharmacy. I'm a certified nutritional supplements adviser I'm a person in long term recovery from drug addiction specifically opiates amphetamines but I identify with. All of it. I started reaction recovery at this past summer reaction recovery is a snow online consultation service. You know specifically to help people following a drug detox stabilized physically attacked through diet nutrition supplementation. Kind of look at how all that? Plays in with any prescription medications that you're taking just like the whole picture moving forward into kind of help you glide into term recovery. Just, just a sort of bridge that gap between detox and long term recovery. Okay. I'm glad you said that because I wanNA dig into that a little bit. So are you more about the actual like a? Withdrawal Detox stage or are you a little beyond that? It could be both I work with people in both the majority is the Aq-. Okay. So so for my perspective, I believe that we have done collectively we've done a great job recently of getting people in detox forgetting identifying people get figuring out how to get them into detox physically separating them from you know whether it's drugs or alcohol, and even even long-term on long-term approach is whether the time-tested twelve step groups that have been around for eighty years that are doing their thing it even even even a lot of this. Yoka long-term approaches to dig into trauma history like how that plays into the root of addictions. I feel like we've done just in the last ten years even ten fifteen years phenomenal work I mean there's just incredible authors, speakers researchers in into that area that I feel like are making God they're just doing it's such good stuff but from my perspective and this is sort of the reaction I guess part of reaction, recovery is. Not Everybody makes it to that point. So most people do make through that I detox period you know one of the misconceptions there. So many one of the misconceptions out there especially as it relates to the OPIOID epidemic is. The problem. Okay. The big problem why it's not going away because these drugs are just so darn addictive in people get stuck on them. They tried to get off to get sick. Of course we've all seen the movies. We all know what that looks like, and that's the reason that everybody just stays in this cycle of addiction at. Yeah. Mean of course anybody who's in that world understands that if that were the case if the case were that the problem is that the the drugs ill whether it's heroin or Sticking to the opiates for the moment if that were the problem anybody that completes that detox is home free, you know you should only have to do a detox. Once if the problem is the physical addictiveness of the drug, you know it's terrible. You're all the you're sweating you can't eat your thrown up your diarrhea. You do that for seven, ten, fourteen days. If you make through a thirty day little treatments stint, you're done you. Know, you should never have to go back to that same facility began to another. Of course, that's just not the case. So there's something else going on, of course, something something bigger and like I said I I, you know I know people that are are able to easily make that transition from MMA treatment into say it is a twelve step group and they hit the ground running and they stay sober in that program in particular has. Created a some unbelievable sobriety. The everybody that is in this industry knows people that have just just these miracle cases where you hear their stories and you see them now and it's it's hard to even. Imagine that this person was this way before. So I just you. You've seen a miracle but not everybody not everybody can make it through that that first phase you know and it it's it's very uncomfortable for a lot of people's very painful
Torgoen and Miracle Flights: Celebrating 35 years of curing the distance
"Flights thirty fifth anniversary and and we fly exclusively commercial now. So all of our patients in all of the families that we serve fly commercially and but that always that that wasn't always the case So when we were founded back in nineteen eighty, five we started as a as a nonprofit and with with a group of this network of private pilots and and it was only with these private pilots on donating their time, their money, their their planes that that these patients would be able to travel say from. Las. Vegas to Los Angeles writer. Las. VEGAS TO STANFORD University for treatment. So. So with our thirty five anniversary of this year, we we've really wanted to sort of celebrate that Celebrate our pilots that that that started this. Entire. Journey. At. Miracle flights and and actually played such a pivotal role as we're starting to brainstorm with Rachel and Matt. From forgoing about how we might activate some of these The. Celebration and really create some ideas and we were thinking about, Hey, what if we actually gifted some of these amazing time pieces to to these private pilots that actually helped us all those years ago. So so our team. Contacted one, a gentleman His name is Dave and and he's actually a Las Vegas resident. is now eighty years old but dave helped. So many of our patients fly back in the I guess it was like the early nineties nineties. And And what we thought would be a good good ideas. If we connected Dave, the pilot, you one of the patients that he flew all those years ago and there's a patient. Her name is Jessica and Chm actually. Has A has a disease called arthri posts and it's an orthopedic, a condition where the the limbs don't necessarily form on the way their intended to and and she her first flight would dave. Back in nineteen, ninety, five and nineteen, ninety, six was Was To Seattle, at Jessica was like two years old Ohka and again day flew her a number of times and when we reached out to Dave and said, hey, we want to do this little reunion. He could. He was just so excited began this is he's eighty now. So you know he's getting up there and he was just so excited to connect so. In the pandemic times we connected via zoom and they had this wonderful reunion where Dave was able to see Jessica who is now walking and anyone who knows a typical diagnosis a of of Arthur guideposts you're you don't walk. You're you're pretty much confined to a wheelchair, but Jessica is walking she she's a college student at the at Oregon State University. And it was so incredible to see them re reunite of the resume, and then we were able to present Dave with with the awesome a Tornado watch as some kind of symbol. Of thanks and and obviously celebrating partnership so it was lovely to do that values are first Reunion that we were planning on doing other ones. In Togo has just been so generous that they really wanted to get into celebrating other pilots as well. So a few things that we actually have in line of for for activation coming the next few months actually going to. meet up with an air. Force. Pilot Air. Force. Vet Who who used to be a pilot and SORTA surprised him with the tour going watch. He's actually been supportive miracle flights for a long time as well and as our kids fly you know our kids are still flying an Algebra Algebra accident short with they're going to surprise their pilots that are actually flying the the commercial planes flying on. Now they're gonNA surprise those pilots with some with some Togo and watches as well. So we have a law planned, but it's it's such a amazing partnership really to celebrate. These families, these pilots are so instrumental in helping these families.
Mark Clark: Warbirds Marketing Specialist
"Courtesy. Aircraft is well known for marketing former military aircraft among other aircraft. How many such transactions take place on average annually in? How many have you done over the course of history? Oh Gosh over the course of history probably over three thousand transactions. and obviously we're not the only one selling these kinds of airplanes, a lot of the owners consent of their own airplanes, but a lot of time they like to turn it over to us because we're kind of familiar with the transactional side of. Inspections title searches checkouts insurance, you know all of those little things that go towards making a successful transaction for the buyer and the seller so. Having done it before, you know, it's a pretty emotional thing when you sell one, and it's an emotional thing when you buy one I mean there's so much history personality wrapped up in the airplanes and the owners. Sometimes it takes a middleman to just wade through of the emotions on both sides, and my understanding is. You've sold the same airplane several times is. Oh Yeah I've got one thing I've sold four times, and that was actually the first Mustang. Average flu sold that particular point four times remains flying, and in grave condition actually here in Illinois today, and I've got a number of t sixes and t twenty eight that sold multiple times. Of the thousands of airplanes you sold. Is there one type model? That's more coveted more prized. Well I think it comes down to beauty is in the eye of the older I particularly love the North American eighty six. That was my first Warburg that I ever flew. Though. Maybe it's kind of like your first girlfriend. There's always something kind of special, but I think the t six is a relatively reasonable airplane to purchase. It's a reasonable airplane to fly. It's very nice Daljit with six hundred horsepower radio edge, and and of course all of the World War Two high looks got some time whether they were fighter or bomber pilots so historically. Historically it has a lot of significance for the united. States as well as probably thirty five countries around the world that operate those airplanes, the last air force to operate those airplanes on a regular basis was the South African Air Force and they were operating the airplanes up until the early nineties about sixty of those airplanes actually came to the united. States and are now in the civilian market as well as a number of them are various places around the world. They were military trainers then and their civilian operated now and used and enjoy. I'm curious. Does the US Department of Defense Still? Surplus military aircraft to the civilian market there's very little of that most of the airplanes that are in the quote Bonier down in Arizona, later model kind of tactical type airplanes back in the mid nineties, there were some airplanes coming out. Mostly trainer planes mostly t twenty eight came out under his traits with museums and stuff, and that provided a lot of the civilian operated inventory, but there's just not a whole lot of stuff left there. That is really civilian friendly I guess. Guess is a better word you know. Some of the technical airplanes have liquid oxygen systems and ejection seats, and you know lots of things that are just beyond the level of interest or financial commitment in time commitment that the average civilian guy wants to go out and just enjoy the airplane. In that case I know you're not the average civilian type. You've piloted bombers and fighters and transports, and what have you? Did you find one or a type more challenging than another pilot? You know it's kind of a building block things you know you start out with the smaller trainer. I I was a civilian pilot RHIANNA civilian pilot. I never was able to get the excellent training that the military gives you so I. Think we're my way up. I sold assessment one fifty on my sixteenth birthday, and worked my way on up. I started in the civilian tailgater. Is the top radio then transition do t six got lots and lots of t six time then transitioned into A. A Mustang and once I got the most time I was able to transition kind of sideways into some of the other world, war two fighters of course air, and the sea fury, and those types of airplanes tbn Avenger torpedo bomber in the military. You're either a fighter, pilot or transporter bomber pilot so I of did the parallel tracks with the B, twenty five and the Douglas, a twenty six after having a lot of other civilian multi engine time in three and four hundred series Cessnas. Teens and both types of airplanes, so it's kind of a building block system. Really that is an amazing array of aircraft, and they're out there in the civilian world, can anyone by one of these things and fly one of these things flying and flying are are not necessarily synchronized ice waller liaison airplane like a single engine they'll five is probably fifty or sixty thousand dollar airplane, some of the smaller L. Birds, the Piper cubs, and in Iran 'cause in those in military colors, or even less than that, but you can get up into the fighters multi million dollars. Dollars of airplane so obviously you need the financial capability someplace on that spectrum and of course, every one of those airplanes as different abilities needed as far as flying the airplane as well as taking care of the airplane, so buying the airplane is certainly one part of the equation, but learning to safely fly the airplane and to maintain your plane properly, you know those are time consuming in dollar consuming items, so everybody kind of fits on that spectrum depending on were they wanna be, and what their financial, as well as time commitment and training commitment is. You touched on maintenance. Some of these airplanes are sixty seventy eighty years old. Though is there a typical ratio of flight hours versus maintenance hours to these machines? That's really hard to say because everybody's use of the airplane. It is different I mean. Some of these airplanes fly couple hundred hours a year. Guys do a lot of air shows and things and charity flights and that kind of. Of stuff and then other airplanes, maybe only flight thirty hours a year and a minimum, any of these airplanes are GonNa have to have either an annual inspection or in equivalent of an annual inspection, which in some of the airplanes is called condition inspection, and then some of the larger airplanes, the transport level airplanes that are over twelve five as well as the turban airplanes require an. FAA approved maintenance program. You know it may be in phases, but it has to be done within a reasonable. So, you know it just depends on the level of commitment that somebody wants getting the work done is fairly easy. There's a pretty good network around, but you get a big airplane like a B.. Twenty five with a sixty five foot, wingspan and eighteen or seventeen and a half foot, tall tale women. It just doesn't fit in your average t hangar that you're GONNA put assessment one eighty two. There's some logistics required there, but you know everybody. Kinda makes that decision for themselves. What level of commitment they

better for both of you so Cheryl what's your take on when people get you know a path for the holidays as well I'm very big on two dogs and every now I mean the homes today a big enough for two dogs but a lot of people over the holiday either they get a puppy which in a puppy is a kid but they grow up and depending on your age how long you're going to be around I mean if you're you know a seventy five or eighty year old you're not gonna get a puppy maybe even if you have a busy work schedule on a large family you might not want to have a puppy because you got to train a puppy because if you don't train a puppy and it becomes a dog it becomes a nuisance and then guess what you don't want it anymore so the most important thing is when you commit word commits to adopting a pet it's full life there's no divorce same unless of course if it's you know a terrible dog and bought you know bites is something that most dogs don't most dogs want love and a couch you know the only I agree with you completely the only situation I have ever heard AB where I dis I did agree with the owners bring in their dog back is when they adopted up AT and a dog and this dog was a little older and the place they adopted I'm not going to mention but this dog had serious serious problems the dog was adopted from Federigo had never been inside a home that's that's Valerie ram this is very where an extreme and you know the bear thought was there did dropped an older dog which is also a great I think that's the most wonderful right they die docked in older dog because they thought this way you know they're they're letting I that's how old the dog has this dog had a problem so you did one added that sounds yeah but let me let me it's one out of a thousand but the thing is that he's out I'm getting to my point here hold on it's rare that a dog will have the you know nor logical issues that make them I mean this dog actually chewed apart an iron cage and if I didn't see it with my eye and flipped it over chewed up wind wooden blinds bashed its head against the windows to escape so bad that the dog was injured I mean it was crazy and so my thing is make sure wherever you're adopting to ask the questions I believe and then drop down shop that's my opinion but ask the questions when you're adopting what kind of dog is this well I have eighty four they might not have known no but a lot of times they do but you also have to know the breed that you know like people say schnauzers Bach this one does that you know the Dalmatians have a lot of energy you have to know what your lifestyle is I mean the dog that I had growing up the dogs alright maybe necessarily the dogs that I would get now because I'm thinking about a dog I love big dogs but I wouldn't get a big deal now I get a medium sized dog and you know do you want dogs that have a lot of you know that enjoy activity they need activity they need to be they go crazy if they don't have a job to do and if you work a big schedule and you have long hours well then you need to couch potato so you have to do your homework and you know you go to these places I deal with a lot of rescue people so you're rescuing outside of the shelter of those shelters today you know they have like for the holidays they had no fees one shelter in Wisconsin every animal was adopted by Christmas they went all out for that they waive fees I mean that's a wonderful thing but you know when you go down to the shelters if you go to a shelter you know you have to watch the dog I mean you just don't walk in and just because he's cute and he's widely you want the black and white he wanted and these are commitments because everybody that brings a dog back creates to the baggage and it's sad and I like the idea that they wanted to adopt so strongly no feeds but in a sense I also think that that might have been maybe too much of a let's give because you might have had people that they were already is it's okay everybody yeah you know what does a home visit and really nope they don't even want to adopt they don't want people to adopt unless you're really home you can't even have a job today with the pet when you go to these places and you fill out all of these these applications and stuff you know I mean this is a it's a loving member of your family it's nerve I could never live without a pet I've always had pets before I was born my parents had a tri color collie and I learned to walk on but it is a commitment and I think people have to have you know because that's the problem there's a holiday it's a puppy the fire side the tree and then within the next month we can hear all the stories of they brought they brought him back to the shelter and it's heartbreaking number one if you have kids it's heartbreaking and
