These stripped you of the chairmanship of your committee. Now why would they do a thing like that. Well you know. I was moving ahead as a committee. Cherry sent letters to three counties to begin in audit a forensic investigation to get to the bottom of what the heck happened you know. There's nothing to hide. Opened up the books.

And so they were left out on the battle of beef Until the earth finally major finally doomed itself and that all of these things combined storm the high emotion the life or death situation the audience and buried a non consecrated graves It seems to have made the perfect storm or a ghosts And that i think is virtually right.

America Is in a Dark, Deeply Divided Place: Inauguration Day 2021

"In july eighteen. Sixty four some fourteen thousand confederate troops to just six miles within sight of the us capitol dome for president lincoln. It was a rude shock after all. This was a year after the union. Victory at the battle of gettysburg and the confederacy seen near defeat. Just the nicotine. Seventeen thousand union troops dispatched by ulysses s grant arrived and pushed the confederates back. Well today joe biden. Sworn in as the forty six president of the united states twenty thousand national guardsmen will defend the same capital this time from enraged citizens. It's impossible to understand how we've reached this point unless we look beyond the last few weeks even beyond the election to pre existing conditions such as our decades-long thinning out of civil society. The most recent lawlessness at the capitol reflects an escalating lawlessness that spans political parties religious affiliations age brackets social classes. And so we're faced with. The question will a militarized america. Be the new normal. Will the armed troops protecting the citadel of democracy today be patrolling the streets of writing cities tomorrow will the blatant failures of our institutions and our leaders continued to fester to this explosive level of distrust chuck. Colson often said that unless people are governed by their conscience they will be governed by the constable when people were unable to govern themselves. They then face a choice. Between order or continued chaos. Most often people will choose order which inevitably means the loss of freedoms the freedom to peaceably. Assemble is impossible to maintain when assemblies frequently turned into riots. looting or sedition. The freedom of speech seems particularly vulnerable today when big tech world so much power and decides like twitter facebook and instagram. Already have to crack down on political speech they deem offensive or dangerous and just last week representative alexandria. Ocasio cortez spoke openly about forming a committee to rein in our media environment. That's something that should anyone who has ever read any dystopia novel ever and our second amendment freedoms are most vulnerable. When used as cover by mass shooters are insurrectionist. Perhaps the most consistent refrain from america's founders is that our national experiment would ultimately prove unsustainable unless there was a virtuous citizenry. our constitution simply cannot ever knows who refused to govern themselves. John adams our second president said it most clearly quote. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It's wholly inadequate to the government of any other and yet americans are becoming increasingly. Immoral and irreligious are shocking. Lack of conscience on display in rising numbers of both deaths from despair by that. I mean addiction self harm and suicide and acts of desperation meaning violent acts riots and even self mutilation pursuit of identity or sexual pleasure. Look we pump poison ideas into our hearts and minds and then call it entertainment. We pump lies into our children and then call it education. The result is that america finds itself in such a dark deeply divided. Play place that alexander solzhenitsyn accurately described in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight speech at harvard. We have he said quote very little defense against the abyss of human decadence such as the misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people such as motion pictures full of pornography crime and horror even the strict. This laws sits alternates in might add even twenty thousand national guard. Troops will ultimately be powerless. Defend people against such moral corrosion but the situation is dire. But it's not without hope as chuck. Colson often said despair as a sin. Christ is risen from the dead and god and his gracious goodness has revealed to us what is true and what is good. He's given us his word and through prayer. He makes himself available to

Electric Car Chargers: When Supply Drives Demand

Electric Car Chargers: When Supply Drives Demand

"Suddenly we are now looking at cars that can go three hundred miles on a single charge right and while they're still too expensive for many people they're expected to get a lot cheaper in the next few years but now people are worried about how long it takes to charge. Yeah and that's a. That's a fair question i guess how. How long does it take to charge and electric vehicle. More than fifteen minutes less than two days. Yeah that's not helpful right so i could throw a whole bunch of numbers that you to explain why there are so many variables that affect this but the most important thing actually isn't the numbers. It's the fact that most electric car owners most of the time charged their car like this. My name is duane ross. I live in corrales new mexico. And i have a two thousand thirteen tesla model s when i bought this car headache. Standard tesla charger installed in my garage. And you just plug that in and of course the charge and then he goes in his house and lives his life. Yeah in the case of someone like duane. Ross and others. It doesn't really matter how long it takes to charge. Because you just leave the thing there overnight right right and it would be parked anyway. Yeah also more convenient than having to go to the gas station from time to time. Plus it's cheap like a lot cheaper than paying for gas is the way i understand it I could see how this works for daily driving. But let's say. I want to take a big road trip right across the whole country. What then that's where. Fast chargers come in. Joyce bryner has a tesla model three. She recently stopped to charge up at a brand new super charger in gettysburg pennsylvania. It sounded like this can hear the power ramping up there. So this is a gonna charge me fast and Let's see what car says here. Looks like of got twenty five minutes to get to eighty percent charge. This is kind of staggering so charging the car at home would take hours and hours charging on the go using one of these fast chargers takes. What like twenty thirty minutes half an hour. Maybe not much more than that. That's amazing yet. That is really quick. There aren't very many fast chargers. That actually are that fast. You might take longer especially at an older charter. Though pricier i take it then then obviously charging it at home because it's well i guess it's just it's it's almost free at home right right and this case. Brynner's charged cost a little over eleven dollars not too bad compared to gas but more expensive than home. Okay so even at a state of the art charger. It's obviously still a lot less convenient than a gas station just because it takes awhile right but remember for most drivers. that's also not a very frequent experience. Mike davar needs with the market research firm s. Clint and he says if you ask people who are considering electric vehicles they really focus on the idea of waiting to charge. Is i think psychologically waited more than it deserves. And the inverse of that is the fact that they don't tend to appreciate how much they'll benefit from nocco gas stations so even though fast charging this rare occurrence for most drivers a lot of companies are really focused on making it as fast as possible and putting up as many fast chargers as possible. Yeah i could see how that would get people over that mental hump so that they just by the thing and then after that they're they're mostly just charging it at home. Yup that's the psychology. Are you ready for the economics. Are you seriously asking me. If i'm ready for the echinacea. All right here. We go the fastest. Fast chargers are super expensive to install like more than one hundred thousand dollars per charger. That means you can only really make money off of them. If people are using them a lot if the utilization rate is really high but remember most people mostly charge at home. Oh there's another hump to get over sure. I spoke to end smart. She's the vp of public policy at charge point which is charging company. And with the fast charger you often have low utilization. Not because it's not an unnecessary piece of infrastructure but because it's in a location which is vital to two drivers occasionally but not necessarily used frequently every single day so in other words. People really want a fast charger to just be there. And in fact they won't buy an electric vehicle unless they're already confident that there are fast chargers everywhere and they're super fast and in fact way faster than they are right now. They want the whole package but they don't actually want to use those fancy chargers all the time it's easier and cheaper to charge at home. It's actually better for your battery too. So it's kind of like if everyone wanted a gas station nearby but they could just get the same gas at home for a fraction of the cost right and in that situation. And you're the gas station. How do you make money. Well i mean you can always just get money from the government. The taxpayer That is happening as i understand. Yep charging are also cutting deals with utilities and of course they're they're joining forces with automakers right because they want to chargers to exist so that people buy their electric cars. The automakers do. Kathy's oy is the ceo of vigo which is fast charging network and they have a deal with gm essentially agreement with general motors is building a bridge between where there's enough cars on the road to make money which is a little time in the future to two right now. So that helps us will build the of demand because general motors has come to the party and is helping make a contribution to the building that infrastructure so he also says look people right now mostly charge at home but that could change in a few years once more. People who don't have garages start buying electric cars. So maybe utilization goes up and this is really interesting camilla because like we normally think about how demand drives supplies like people want man for something. They're willing to spend money on it. So you know. Accompany supplies it Here's always saying that. Like no once the supplies out there. Then it's going to drive up demand so build chargers and people will buy the vehicles to use the chargers she also says maybe you can get a bunch of shipping transportation companies to use these fast chargers and that'll help cover their costs. So companies are optimistic. Then they see a path to profitability. Here yeah but. I think it would be fair to say that. It's a lot easier to get there. If people were a bit more rational. If people used fast chargers as much as they worry about fast chargers they're either be a lot more charging or a lot less worrying. Yeah and in either case. Just less of a conundrum

Biden can start accessing presidential daily briefing as transition gets underway

"All right, let's talk some election challenges in transition activity. Take it away. Yeah, let's start with the transition activity, which is underway. We know that. As of Monday, the General Services Administration informed President elect Joe Biden at the Trump administration was ready to begin the formal transition process, which in essence is their first step in admitting that President Trump didn't win the Joe Biden did, and we're beginning the process of getting the power and information to the hands of the person that should be taking over come January 20th. So that is, at least to this point in time. We're hearing underway Joe Biden's transition team now talking with all federal agencies. And with that A part of this transition also includes having the ability to access additional office space inside those agencies and the ability to use federal dollars for background checks on Biden's White House staff appointments as well as Cabinet picks, and it also opens the door for Joe Biden. To have the access to the cove in 19 data vaccine vaccine distribution plans and also get the presidential daily briefing. So all of that supposedly began yesterday is going through today here as well. And the interesting part about that is that while that's all underway, President Trump is still saying he is refusing to concede and that he is going to continue to fight. S O yesterday morning. He tweeted that there would be a big lawsuit that would be filed soon. Now we don't know what that lawsuit is. But the president says he's moving full steam ahead still full steam ahead. Now. Today, they're scheduled to be in Pennsylvania Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, meeting that Rudy Giuliani scheduled that is supposed to kind of clarify where things stand in regards to these elections suits that have gone on. We know that when you're just looking at the track record right now, there's only about three active cases remaining right now, out of all of the other cases. They haven't filed a case that the law team for President Trump since November 18th. So all of the lawsuits came between Election Day on November 18th. And since then, the flurry of lawsuits really kind of all concluded bloom. Daddy only three left in one of those, for instance, in Michigan is just all about there being rejected. Defective, improper fire. Wait, That's something that generally you fix real quick. Send it back to the courts and begin the process of hearing that case That hasn't happened with President Trump's legal team. We don't know why was it a mistake? Was it something that planning on doing But we do know that there might be an announcement today after Pennsylvania had their certification of votes yesterday. There might be an announcement today. They're in Gettysburg as to what the next move is going to be for the legal team. In Pennsylvania. I was watching an interview with Alan Dershowitz. And, of course, the Allens Ah, liberal attorney. Very, very bright. He said that the president probably had his best legal footing in Pennsylvania with two or three angles. But so far that really has not come to fruition is you kind of pointed out? Yeah, it's been a situation where you had 19 cases filed by the campaign. 15 have already been denied or dismissed by judges or withdrawn from the campaign itself. Most of that is coming from lack of substantial evidence of voter fraud to back up the claim, so what's left is Not a lot, and also not a lot of time Bloom, Daddy because you're going to have come the 14th of December which, as we're just looking at that calendars here, Thanksgiving wraps up and then they come. Everybody comes back to town. November 30th. The next days. December 1st you've got till December 14th to have electors from each state meet to formally nominate the next president. So if you're going to try to get a legal something battle in you start and finish it before December 14th in order to have any effect on it. Have a sign of that is if you're just trying to work the angle of getting electors to make a decision independent of the state. They represent an independent of the votes that were cast in that state that you also have two weeks to try to get that done here. So I don't know what's going to be able to get done. But these next two weeks between now and December, 14th will be interesting to see cause that will kind of finalize any final nails in the confident you will of the 2020 election.

The Last US Civil War Pension

"Triplet was born in Nineteen thirty in Wilkes County North Carolina Sixty five years after the end of the civil war. How she ended up receiving civil war pension is one of those stories that you wouldn't believe if it wasn't true. But when you do the math, it actually does workout. Her father was most triplet was a veteran of the civil war. He had the distinction of having fought for both the confederacy and the Union. He was a member of the fifty third North Carolina infantry who fought in the battle of Gettysburg. On the way to Gettysburg most fell ill and was hospitalized the illness probably saved his life because most of his unit was either killed or wounded during the battle. After he recovered, he deserted the confederates and joined up with the third north, Carolina mounted infantry which fought for the union. The unit was known as Kirks raiders after commander Colonel, George Washington. Kirk. After the war Mos- returned to North Carolina got married and started a family his wife Mary passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. As with many older civil war veterans, they would often take younger second wives especially during the Great Depression as their pension was considered a source of stable income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the age of seventy eight MOS married his second wife Alita who was twenty nine years old Mohsen Alita had five children. One of them Irene was born in one, thousand, nine, thirty when Mos- was eighty-three. Irene was just eight years old when her father died at the age of ninety two after returning home from a civil war veterans reunion. Irene had a cognitive disability which made her eligible to continue to receive her father civil war pension after his death as a quote, helpless child of a veteran. She received her father's pension of seventy three dollars and thirteen cents every month from her father's death in one thousand, nine, thirty, eight to her death in. Twenty twenty. The amount was never for inflation. The entire time it's estimated she received approximately seventeen thousand dollars over the course of her life. In addition to having received the last civil war pension, she was also the last child of a civil war veteran. The second to last child of a civil war veteran also had an interesting story in two thousand. Eighteen Fred Upton passed away at the age of ninety seven. His father was William H Upton. Who is a civil war veteran and the former governor of the state of Wisconsin who was elected in eighteen ninety four. Because of the occurrence of young women marrying much older men with pensions, the passing of the last civil war widow wasn't that long ago either in two thousand and eight motty Hopkins died at the age of ninety three in thousand, nineteen, thirty, four at the age of nineteen she married eighty six year old William Cantrell who served as a sixteen year old soldier in the confederate army. Blast Union widow was Gertrude Janeway who passed away in two thousand three. The last surviving documented veteran of the civil war was Albert Wilson who died at the age of one, hundred, six in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six he was a fourteen year old drummer boy in the first Minnesota. Heavy. Artillery Regiment. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six there was an episode of the TV Game Show I've got a secret with a ninety five year old man named Samuel Seymour. The panelists had to guess what the guest secret was. Samuel Seymour. Was the last surviving witness to Abraham Lincoln's assassination. He was a five year old boy was taken affords theater and said in the balcony across the theater from the present it. there. Is a clip of the appearance on Youtube and I highly recommend viewing it if you're interested in such things. The. Last surviving person who was born as a slave in the United States was Peter Mills who died in Nineteen seventy-two he was born into slavery in eighteen sixty one and live to be one hundred, ten, one person was both born into bondage and live to see the moon landing. The last surviving veteran of the Revolutionary War was John Gray who died in eighteen sixty, eight at the age of one, hundred four he's one of the only people who live to see both the revolution and the civil war oddly enough he was born on George Washington's estate Mount Vernon and his father died in the revolutionary. War. The, last surviving veteran of Napoleon's army was a Polish man Vincent Markowitz who died at one hundred and eight in nineteen three and the last veteran of the war of eighteen twelve was Hiram Cronk who passed away in one thousand, nine, five at the age of one, hundred and five. In Two thousand eleven at the age of one hundred and ten American Frank. Buck was the last surviving veteran of World War One in the world to pass away. Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four. It will probably be someone who fought at a very young age and lives to be at least one, hundred and ten. It's amazing how the lives of some people can span such incredible lengths of time and how we can have lives that overlap them. We think of the civil war is being a long time ago. Yet we're only two or three generations removed from people who lived through all of these events.

Trump Says He Might Accept GOP Nomination at 'Great Battlefield of Gettysburg'

"You just think they come get any Wes And they? There is a man called Jeremy Diamond, who works for CNN covering the White House. And when the president announced yesterday that one of the locations where he may be giving his acceptance speech for the Republican nomination for the presidential election this November, this was the official quote unquote journalistic response. From CNN, Eric play video cut for And Pam. We've reported that President Trump is considering delivering his GOP nomination acceptance speech from the White House. But amid some criticism of that potential venue, the president is now floating another one. This time he's talking about the hallowed Civil War battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. That could be controversial to particularly because this is a president who has consistently positions himself as a defender of Confederate symbols and monuments to Confederate generals. Them. Yeah, that's a fair point to make. Tough. A fair point should I couldn't you know, I know I am an immigrant to the United States. I think I know my American history quite well, but remind, remind us sure which signed one and get his book. That's what's so great about that clip is, I don't think the reporter understood that it was an overwhelming union victory that the Confederacy was slaughtered in one of the most consequential. The battles in that entire ward to go and say that Gettysburg somehow this Confederate monument and no match to the Confederacy requires Either just monumental dishonesty or abject ignorance in stupidity.

DNC Announces Convention Speakers, Speculation On Biden's VP Pick Intensifies

"Of scheduled speakers at next week's Democratic National Convention is out, and it's being parsed for clues as to who's still in the running to be Joe Biden's running mate. He's expected to make that announcement any day now. Meanwhile, President Trump is floating the idea of accepting the Republican nomination later this month on Sacred ground. The Gettysburg Battlefield. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is watching it all. And Mara. You know, some names in the running to be Biden's running mate are scheduled to speak, but not in the VP slot, you know, and I'm just wondering if that's a fool's errand to try to make that meaningful, You know? What do you think about that? And who do you think at this point is thumb Where are may be the most likely candidates. I think the most likely candidates are still that same handful of women, you know, Joe Biden said. He's going to take a woman whether it's Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Gretchen Whitmer, Karen Bass. Those are the people who have been on the list for quite some time. And and, of course, Gretchen Whitmer is the only white female on that short list. But I think the list has remained the same. Sounds like he's about to make his decision because the vetting committee has pretty much disbanded on DH. It could be as early as today that we find out So what do you think for everybody who's sitting home, you know, got all the names and the lists on whiteboards and, you know, trying to, you know, look at those tea leaves. And should we be looking at the List of speakers. Oh, I think that that that is actually fool's errand, but it's fun and it's going to be over very soon. It could be over today, so go ahead. But I still think you know that of all my conversations with Democrats all signs Seemed to point to Kamala Harris. But with the caveat that Joe Biden hasn't decided, and he often takes his time deciding well, 100 prominent black men signed a letter. Hoping they could make him decide that it would be a black woman because they said to him, you will lose the election. If you don't choose a black woman as a running mate, and this was entertainers, pastors, business leaders, athletes. I'm wondering more. If you think that Biden really needed that public pressure, it would seem in this moment in time. That's the choice. He'd want. Make one of these in class. That's what I think. I think that letter was really aimed. And Gretchen Whitmer. She's the only white person on that list. Everyone else is a person of color or black woman. So I don't think he needed that kind of public pressure. But it does show you that of all the people on the list. There is a backlash brewing to at least one of them in that's Gretchen Whitmer. You haven't seen the same kind of opposition public opposition to Kamala Harris, for instance. Oh, by the way, you're saying Elizabeth Warren is not in the running and I don't think so. Yeah, No, I don't think so, although she's a thought leader in the party, and she certainly has influenced a tremendous amount of his agenda. Of the Democratic National Convention will be all online this year. Wouldn't does that mean for the post convention bounce that the candidates look for Hillary Clinton got well, first of all, who knows Because nobody's ever run a presidential campaign in a pandemic. But most people I talked to assume that the post convention bounce will be very small thiss year for both candidates because they're not having the kind of big Excitement filled crowded conventions like we have in the past that being said the Democrats have had a lot longer time to plan for a virtual convention than the Republicans because they've been scaling. There's back for months. And the big question is, are they about to produce the best four night television show ever seen in history? Or will it kind of be ho hum? Well, and they will be competing in that arena with a president who is obviously trying to make the best television show. What do you make of that tweet that he may accept the Republican Nomination for president from the Gettysburg Battlefield or the White House. Both locations likely to violate ethics rules or just some people's moral sense of what's right to politicize. But you know, this is a president that gave an interview to Fox News inside the Lincoln Memorial, gave an interview at Normandy. What do you think happens here? Will certainly Trump isn't worried about offending people sense of what's right or wrong or any kind of norm. Now there are legal questions. Ethical questions about what kind of federal property you can make a convention nominating speech, your acceptance speech on and I'm sure the White House lawyers will be figuring that out. Is there some part of Gettysburg that he could be on? Without violating ethics rules. It's certainly a lot easier for the president to set this up at the White House, but he's clearly looking for the kind of dramatic backdrop not unlike Mount Rushmore that would give his campaign a boost. Quick thought from you, Mara on the fact that it's been primary season. It's primary day today for six states. The focuses on Minnesota, where the Denver Democrat, the representative Ilhan Omar, Is facing a tough challenge. Other progressive candidates have done very well this primary season. What will you be looking for here, right. She's the only member of the squad left with the primary. The four young progressive women of color and she has a really stiff challenge from an attorney named Anton Melton, Mo. He's getting a lot of money. There's been a certain amount of unhappiness with her. They've been attacks on her first for allegedly making anti Semitic statements. We know that the other members of the squad have not had primary challenges. Rashida to leave beat hers back very handily. So that's what we're watching today for the Democrats. Well, how does he do? Right and very briefly. The unemployed have now gone over a week. Without that additional money from the federal government. The president signed those actions and directives to address this. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the money will go out in two weeks. But he doesn't have The power of the purse. Congress does and they're gone. They're out of session. I think everyone's taking a big political risk here for the president to sign these executive orders and then have people not get a bigger unemployment check or still face eviction. I think that that he will be responsible for that and then members of Congress, including the Democrats, they are allowing people to go without thes unemployment checks, which, by the way, have kept the economy going in large part On Then they have stopped negotiating. Good. Not good. Not good. Yeah. NPR national political correspond. Mara Liasson. Thank you. Thank you.

"All right. We're back sorry to get a little political I. Don't think it's political at all I think human rights are needed all around the world even but. You know I mean Gettysburg. Those people lost their lives and it It's a serious topic. So it's Kinda hard not to get a little serious about it but. We're going to get even more serious. It's still it's still it's still going to be serious but we're GonNa talk about some ghosts. All right. I'm ready to talk about Ghost I. Guess. Yeah. All right. You got. Okay. So we have a number of things today I wanted to try to get in some kind of more. Recent sightings along with some classic stories that people tell Gettysburg, I will just say over all there's a lot I have not been to Gettysburg, but there are a lot of tours and we had a lot of listeners talk about those in the comments on facebook. So although a lot of people say that they're similar to the GALENA goes tours. Did, go Lena goes towards and we will do an episode on Galena Illinois at some point. Yeah definitely. Anyway. So there's a lot of lot of stuff going on and as I picked. Some of the stories certainly, not enough time to go over all of them. Okay. So the first thing, actually references a little bit back to the go story of today It's the Phantom Surgery. defendthem surgery. Yeah. So this story shows up a lot of websites I pulled it from live about and Gettysburg the Gettysburg College website, which is where this happened. So, Gettysburg College was I think it was called like, Pennsylvania. College. Back in the day but it was around and it has been the site of of several different encounters over the years but the the one that is the most popular is what's to college administrators claim to have seen one night. Okay. So at during the battle, the building had been used as a field hospital. During the Gettysburg but this night. So this was you know after battling Gettysburg. to administrators taking the elevator down from the fourth floor to the first. they weren't thinking about the battle because it had been like a hundred years.

"Just a lot of graphic details that I. I won't go into you know here but you know it was hot it's the middle of summer and just Really, disturbing. Yes. Corruptions of what happened to to these beasts bodies you know, and so I'm glad Lincoln wasn't there I guess is what I'm. Brazil, a dangerous space for him to be at that point but also just very disease ridden and dangerous and and a difficult difficult space. Yeah and. If, you listen to our episode on Abraham, Lincoln and even the Italian bride we talked about that linkin actually wanted to. To Take Care of the dead right away. He was really big on that. He believed that that's one of the things that he owed the families of these victims or these soldiers not victims they got into it willingly. So yeah, he was quick to have people in bombed and you know buried so. four months later there was probably no remains left there. So. But. The Gettysburg address was inspired by the events of the battle. That's why that's why it was setting Gettysburg. But the Gettysburg address. That Lincoln delivered was only two, hundred, seventy, two words. It transformed the unions 'cause into a struggle for liberty and equality. It helped garner more support and was a day that our nation became more compassionate. We will always still have a lot of work to do for this mission of equality but Lincoln's words touched the nation. And how Rebecca would you mind reading this for US This is Lincoln's how how he ended the Gettysburg address shore. From these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion. that. We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. That this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom. And that government of the people by the people for the people shall not perish from the earth. Burying spiring words right absolute. The whole address and just steps. Yeah. So the thing that I found very interesting is that. Fifteen thousand people came to hear that address. Wow and it was a it was a dedication of a national cemetery. Lincoln didn't even receive top billing on this event. Did you know that know Edward Everett a politician and pastor was the headliner?.

"Getty died in Gettysburg on March fifteenth seventeen ninety after watching the plots of land that he had got with his tavern become a town. Gettysburg grew just like any other small town, but it had a slower start. In seventeen ninety five, they had only sold off about a quarter of the plots. In, eighteen hundred, they became the county seat of the newly formed Adams County. There were few towns that were in the race to get this honor, but it was because the town pledged to raise the seven thousand dollars that it would cost to build the county building. So they figured win win situation they needed to build the building anyways and if they were going to pay for it might as well make them Make them the county seat. There you go. Okay. So. if not for people like gettys and the truck CELS Gettysburg wouldn't have been the same town that it is. Now it wouldn't have that name though right because Gettysburg came from Gatti's. In eighteen, fifty, nine Gettysburg got a railroad line from Gettysburg to Hanover, which actually I think it was used until the early nineteen hundreds and then it stopped being used for a little bit and then they reestablished it again. In eighteen sixty, the town had grown to four hundred and fifty buildings. So that's that's pretty good. I mean that one hundred, ten, Lhasa or fifty buildings. That's a lot. So that brings us now to the battle of Gettysburg this was a huge turning point in our nation's history and it was the it had the most casualties of the entire civil war. Yeah I. Mean It's a big number. It is definitely like fifty thousand people. I mean it's interesting to think this town just had a regular. History just a small town history and then now it's Vamos infamous I don't know. The town's fault known what happened here in any way and I think I mean you'll tell us about how it got to that be in that town but. It's just interesting. You know that it was just a regular town. It was. It's not like New York or you know like a big city where you would imagine the big battles for Charlotte or something like that. It's just this. Regular town that anyone could be living in and all of the sudden..

"But yet is still polarizing where you're seeing ghosts are less scary than politics. How in today's world? Be Right with relatives and things like that, and you know yet to show that it is possible to have a conversation with the other side you find a middle ground sometimes into to understand the you can. You can see how someone sees the world and it. Makes you better a better person when you understand someone else better true I mean I do have to admit it is kind of frustrating when you know somebody believes things other than what I believe. But I mean that's part of being a human being and I'd rather be associated with people that don't feel exactly one hundred percent the way that I feel because they could help me grow yeah right. Exactly. So anyways, this episode I'm we are really excited about it As. I said it's been one of those topics that we've wanted to talk about. We're going to be talking about the town of Gettysburg Pennsylvania. The site of the Gettysburg address after the battle of Gettysburg that took the life of over fifty thousand people. Americans just yet hazy back between July first in July third in eighteen, sixty three. You have a ghost story to kick us off I do. All that well, it's not GonNa get a lot happier. Life boomed just letting you know definitely a You know sad topic but but definitely interesting. Okay. So here is our. Today awesome. Charlie woke up with a start and gasped I saw them. I. Got Up and hurried over to him hoping he hadn't woken his sister sleeping next to him. Luckily, she was still out from our long day of touring, Gettysburg. Charlie was panting and looking terrified. Who did you see whispered wiping his forehead he was sweating the soldiers, doctors people running everywhere. The were screaming and scared. I did my best to calm down and explain it was just a dream. We had taken a historical tour that day and learned a lot about the battle. Usually. He does well learning about history and not taking it into his dreams but I guess this was the exception. Our Guide had been a bit more graphic explanations than I was expecting. After a while I got him back to sleep, but now I was awake. I. Like to my husband still asleep through it all of course. After twenty minutes of laying in bed and looking at the ceiling I realized, I wasn't going to sleep like this. I need to walk around clear my head. I found my shoes remember to grab a room key and snuck out of our hotel room. The farnsworth house in headed interesting place to stay this trip. At has been here since before the battle there still bullet holes from the snipers and fighting that happened here. It's like living in the history I thought to myself. I made my way downstairs thinking maybe I'll just sit in one of the compete shares in the living room off the lobby..

Wildland Fire Leadership for Project Managers

"Welcome back to the people process progress. Podcasts I am Kevin Panel. I really appreciate you all hitting play on this episode. Finding me on your various podcasts platforms. Today I'm going to cover. Leading the wildland fire service which is a manual created in two thousand seven by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group with their training team there and by mission centered Solutions Inc. It was one of the leadership. Manuals that on episode ten in one of the archives from between the slides here so check that out where I covered leadership lessons from Gettysburg. And beyond so this manual as title entails is focused on folks coming up in the incident management world in particular in their wildland fire service. And we use this may new even though we weren't wildland firefighters because we were all hazards folks so please firefighters. Ems public health wherever that lives kind of in the regular day to day world on the streets of America but this was a great template wildfire has been around for a while and they have great leadership set up so this was a pre read before that staff writer at Gettysburg National Battlefield. We've talked about co that in public health and those kind of things and hopefully that's been helpful but also you know my day job is on on project manager and so I wanted to share some of the parallels which I've talked about before between just good leadership and whatever industry and in this particular case looking through this leading in the wildland fire service manual and applying it to project management and. You all will see whether you're a project manager or not or you're an incident management or public safety. The pair allows I mean again. I've said it before to me. Good leadership or a good leader can transcend any industry meaning. If you're a good leader I could pop you in technology or public safety or health care or farming that you would be able to bring together teams. You would be able to take some kind of process. You're not going to be expert in each. There's but that's often not the leader's job and so let's let's get into this book a little bit. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa read some of these things and then kind of comment on them and then look forward y'all's comments if you want to send me stuff. At people process. Progress G MAIL DOT COM or facebook page. People process. Progress can get hold of their or on instagram panel. Cagey here we go so. This is part of the preface of the book very early on. And there's a couple of statements that I think are really outstanding and the first is that leadership is the art of influencing people in order to achieve a result the most essential element for success in the wild and fire service is good leadership so let me touch on that last piece but switch out a couple of words. The most essential element for success in project management is good leadership right. There's there's no difference you know saying I'm a person whose job it is to go out and help put thousands of acres that are burning out that are on fire or I'm a person that's going to help get organization put thousands of devices work. Well right good leadership is you know the most essential element. Here's another statement and this one just applies all around right leaders often face difficult problems to which there are no simple clear cut by the book solutions and these situations leaders must use their knowledge skill experience education values and judgment to make decisions into take or direct action in short to provide leadership so project managers out there right. We you know part of bringing together. A new project team were coming into a project. That's already inflate is getting together looking at solutions that I've said it ad Nauseam but I'll say it again. The Project Management Body of knowledge is a great manual but if you try and manage projects strictly by using that book or agile guide or six sigma like if you just try and do completely out of the box and I've seen some of this where we're trying to apply principles that we would normally apply when it's a sunny day and there's no pandemic and all that. Y- then we're GONNA fail. We're going to spend our wheels a little bit and so be okay with everything not being exactly like it is in the book and some of that comes with experience right so if you've been around a little bit in life you kind of understand that let alone if you're new and project management or have been around there you understand it's not gonna go by the book ever not even. GonNa go buy your project plan exactly ever and that's fine. Just do the best you can for all the constraints and this and that so as the main goes through then we're gonNA look at some some leadership values and principles and these are like. Human leadership is in principles right but think of these as a project manager and the three guys that are outlined that this book kind of everything else falls under our duty respected integrity so according to the leading in the wild on fire service which we could rename this and change some things that could be leading in project management. So let's look at duty be proficient technically as a as a leader these these apply to these principles that apply to the value of duty. Make sound and timely decisions. Make sure that the tasks are understood. Supervised accomplished right and develop your people you know all of those apply directly. If you're a project manager if your project manager this is invested in your team you're invested in being the best person the best leader that you can be then. All of those should be absolutely proficient in your job piece to me is. Do you know how to use the tools that organization us right to do stumble through them or refuse to use them be proficient. Get get good with them to the point where you can try then leverage them to make solutions for certain things like you know being able to stand up very quickly way to track phones you've deployed or using excel or using project line or a share point lists or whatever product to us you know sound and timely decisions. I've talked before again that that I think it was episode ten from the archive there with Gettysburg leadership about the time wedge. Right the longer the time goes down the less options we have so we got up. We gotta be ready to make those when we get to the task level in the overall project schedule. Do We know that the folks that have the resources the people that we have on our team that are assigned tasks that have taken on those tasks? Do we know what they're supposed to do. And what when when we've asked them to do it by and how to do it. And if the answer is no then we need to make sure and that we can clear that up and part of our jobs as project managers along the way from day. One when you introduce yourself to when you're handed off top developing your people. So are your teammates coming out the other end of the project better are you also and I think we should always look at that. The second value here respect. And here's the principal so no your people and their wellbeing now in this time is an excellent opportunity to develop this. If you're maybe not as heavy in this as a project manager is checking on your team how are you doing? How's your family getting enough rest? You need help. Let me know if you need more people. We need to staff if we can to help give you a break like that. Should be a constant cycle a constant check in with our teammates. Keep your people informed. We've all been part of silos or I copied these people on the email. But not these other people you know what cut down on emails and copy folks and if someone says Hey. I don't need to know this just work with my people awesome then cut down. But there's really unless you're actually working in top secret security compartment mental information skift stuff like none of this is top secret right so we should be open have good communications and keep our entire team informed at all levels. There's one thing I've heard a lot on calls of then and when folks use the term. We'll talk about that offline which you know partially sometimes if you've been on those calls means. I don't WanNa talk about this in front of everyone else you and I can just talk about it somewhere else now. There's utility in that when in a quick update meeting. We'RE NOT GONNA get into a working session that makes sense. Hey you know what? Let's dive into this deeper offline so we can work through that that makes total sense. You should be doing that anyway when folks don't want to talk about something and you can tell through the conversation that there's already other silos happening in the project. That's something that you should be aware of as a project manager in that you should you should maybe address. Knx You guys want to talk about this. Offline is information that I can help with or that. Maybe the rest of the team needs to know and just kind of reach out again. There shouldn't be a ton of separate discussions that don't relate to everybody else on the team and the objectives that the project is trying to meet right if it's truly unified and we'll get into that a little bit. This other principle that has to do with respect is build the team. Right your job as a project manager whether you've been matrix than they actually report to you or most often. I found like no one actually works for you but your job is to build the team up so that folks want to do work for the project or you if you've built those relationships through you reaching out to them directly through talking to them through active listening all you know some of the other things we'll get into about good leadership but part of your job is not just build. Get people to get the job that it's build. The team to be cohesive

it one night I was changing from my uniform into my own clothes in the locker room there wasn't another soul in the basement already such a big problem for me or so I thought Oh no problems as I was standing in my underwear in front of the Mirror there was this ledge to put your clothes on purse etc while you change I heard a loud sigh that sounded like a man in him aroused state ah looked up at the mirror to see if there was someone or a ghost behind me and saw a reflection in the mirror of a man's face looking at me from the closet through Ooh the park window I screamed he came out of the closet I thought he was going to attack me and being cornered in the basement I ran toward him ready to beat the shit out Yes yes parentheses mind you I'm still just in my underwear he ran away from me an exited the locker room I quickly got dressed and went went out to call security I recognize the man as a housekeeper who frequently came to say hello to me when I was working security called the police and searched the property to find him well I waited in a secure location I didn't want this creep to follow me home they eventually found him hiding on the property and arrested him he was cited for misdemeanor and release lease I never heard from the DA or the police after that but he was fired from his job as you well know at that time peeping wasn't seen as a first step in escalating

Do Not Diminish Your Light

"So i wanna frame up this podcast with a couple of things so so one of the things that we're doing in this podcast frame up and i said podcast not just this podcast but our whole podcast is is to put on display okay so to speak where we're at to show what our life is like and how we feel about it what our feelings are sometimes in the past asked. We've dug into a lot of this shitty times right. <hes> and i just want to make this. This is a a an adjustment or a clarification that the focus is on you know where we're at right now however feeling and to show you to put our life as this is the journey we took took and we are taking currently and our continued to take yes and so i i'm i'm saying i don't wanna dwell as much in the past because more and more people who are coming to us. We've really expanded our counseling and coaching. It's been really fun. Exciting a lot of people i've noticed one dwell on the past about how shitty their life is and how their shitty their life has been <hes> and one of the first things i do is reorient you towards the possibilities in to the paradise to the future and because there's these negative thought loops that get people get on and they seem to dwell in them seem to do well i used to do that. I used to run rails in my head so lewis shitty past gives you permission to have shitty present which would indicate that you actually don't want a good president if you want to dwell on the past and and create shitty president yeah so i'm interested in illuminating this state of light and joy and then giving people hope to get there and show them how to if they want to come to counseling coaching events or just listen to the podcast yup i got a frown in there was a general all around yeah. That's what i have to deal with so my pleasant place where i am right now is i'm feeling pretty down. 'cause my girlfriend girlfriend frowned at me. She's my wife anyway. How are you feeling so. Let's start right there jenny. How are you feeling right now. Where are you at. Where am i well. Philip k feeling a little stressed while stress because we we have our marriage and <unk> shades of intimacy coming up next weekend september sixth seventh and eighth so just doing a lot of prep mentally physically xactly energetically for that event which is both a incredibly exciting. I'm like this morning. I woke up. I just my eyes popped open open and i was excited and then you go through the waves of holy shit. There's so much to do and then pop back out and you get really excited again and then you're like. I've got this great idea. Pop back out and you're like oh my god so i think people can relate right. I mean this is where we're at and navigated to it now. Now i will briefly talk about the past for second in our past. We would usually be pretty turbulent right all right so we've worked really hard to be where we are now. Where mildly mildly turbulence is way okay better than where we're at right. I think people can relate to win. You kinda have regular meltdown so speak right yeah right. I my mom anytime she would have visitors coming to clean the house. She is coming to clean the hell out of visitors coming to visit she would i would start with the oh i need to clean and then it would just turn into we'll just turn into a meltdown right pattern. There's always and tencent a mirror so think about. I think people can relate to some event out there and as it comes up they start to go into meltdown mode. It's pretty typical. But what if we just go into feeling good and so that's what we're doing this. We're just feeling really good <hes> and from that good we're still doing all the shit we need to do to get better right that interesting difference big difference like we could clean the house in a panic feeling like we're just fucking losing it and fuck this. We should cancel the event. We're gonna just die. Clean clean clean or hey. I'm so excited right. I'm cleaning now. That's a nuclear bomb of information. I just dropped on eugenie there. The world go big difference. It's possible to do it differently. Yeah okay frame set intimate with iron bars. <hes> okay so today we've had. We did three days in a row. Let's talk about one of the experiences that we had that. We've done three days in a row. We've gone for our morning walks yeah or not. Some morning walks on some of the day's yesterday. It was the mid day. Burn me out destroy. My gimme heatstroke day was still was a great walk. Walk yep so talk about walks okay. You've been telling me that they're like you rose every day yeah no. They're awesome. I mean they're a long stretch of time to get the body moving and the mind moving and we do a lot of idea generating and they're just awesome just the connecting bodily with movement bodily with movement okay yeah well yeah i mean it's like it's opposed to sitting across from each other talking. We're walk walk at the same time and there's something that adds to it that we're walking that the body is moving the piece. I want to talk about so today. We had a fantastic experience. Just fantastic and we're going to talk about it. <hes> i loved this experience. Do you want to tell the story sure so we were walking along. There's obviously walking past a bunch of houses in our neighborhood and all of a sudden. We hear this little little boy voice little a little boy voice ringing out with this song. I don't even know what the hell the song was. It's no discernible song but he's just singing any. I can see his sister up near the front door and his brother was over in the in the driveway and really all. I can't locate it. I can see the two other kids and i can't really locate this other. We're this voice disembodied voice coming from and i mean he's loud. He's he's just seeing it out and i'm looking and those i see the sign like a for sale sign. These two little fee. I'm like i found and it and it was just so cute. I mean just his little lungs were full and he was belting out. Whatever the hell is what it was horrible and because we can really see him he couldn't see us and so we're walking along and we we we walk around the edge of the of the sign where he can see us and all of a sudden his just joyous he is belted out song trails off into this little embarrassed and gets quieter in it was funny just drill down and i thought i had a funny line. This isn't really funny but i thought i said something mike mike and thus the boy learned shame i mean that's what ed it became. He became embarrassed. I mean that's what it seemed right and so his this amazing joyous moment for him just trailed off into this little diminish embarrassed embarrassed to nothingness it did and it was it was exuberant excitement and we both picked up on it <hes> we were. We were looking at each other and going. I mean this. This kid is howling a song like kosong berg and there were no words it was just a howl of delight and emotion and just like a bird talking the talk talk talk knock you know and and we walked around and i and he looked up and he looked up at me and just a trail and i waved thome and i wanted to give him the biggest smile i could yeah because i loved what he was doing right but interestingly enough something happened right yeah something happened and he become self conscious and he felt on some level something wrong with his song <hes> and that he must must be quiet. <hes> an embarrassment you could see the layers shit just piling onto on right at that moment right and i don't know maybe where the source of back those layers came from but it wasn't us right like like clean moment we utterly appreciated him singing and utterly utterly appreciated him trailing off right just gave him unconditional love <hes> yeah he's got the biggest small it's usually she's frowning at amoebae this time. It isn't that true actually not true get defensive. Let's talk about this. I anyway so yeah great experience. What did you get from that well. I mean i think i got what we just kind of walked through is how you know we we have these moments of exuberance and then stories stories or whatever creep in and it diminishes it but it also gave me a very powerful moment of seeing seeing being that i want the opposite and that i want the opposite for other people in that moment. It made me sad that he trailed trailed off that his song diminished to a low hum it made me sad and so what that provided aided me was insight into. I want the opposite. I want little kids who how their songs and don't stop because people walk by but i also want the same for myself you know this. This child was a perfect little microcosm of what we we do day in day out to ourselves you ourselves. Do you remember me talking about the pencil rocket story about his in this interesting. I was just telling you about oh my eighth grade or sixth grade pencil rocket story <unk>. I just remember putting these two things together about a night or two ago. I was telling jenny that when i was a kid i had an active imagination <hes> just a really active imagination and one day i was. I think i was in eighth grade but it could be sixth grade. I was in mr norm colours history class the guy who made us memorize and speak in front of everybody the gettysburg address little factual for you that just came up from the depths of my brain and i had two pencils and it occurred to me in like a study period moment or something that they looked a lot like spaceships because they were pointed at the front and the erasers looked like the fire coming out the end of a spaceship and so i began to fly them around course right shaw show. I'm like this is about a lot of all in their chasing each other shooting each other and was having the most it's amazing time right just absolutely amazing time and i had a friend who really looking out for me looking after he was and he's all like comes up to do. You just got stopped. That look like a moron. You look like an idiot. You look like you're you're. You're embarrassing. You'll never get a girl. I remember that line and i was just like it was interesting because i'm sure i'm sure sure any girl in the eighth grade considering dancing or dating me at that time was probably surely put off by by the pencil the intense world i was in my own world right like like this kid was in his own world yeah completely yeah oh yeah and here's the thing by the sound of his song. We knew he was in a beautiful world. Yeah he was in the best world ever and i was having the best ruled ever with my rocket ships and my friend was like i gotta help you here. You're embarrassing yourself. You look you're just not hear back to less optimal world where you should worry about shit like this yeah. That's your thing and and i'll i'll say i can piece some things out of it. <hes> that are useful like present present be aware of how your behavior affects others. If in this moment you really don't give a shit. He just being you and bill. It's also aware of was like okay. That girl cute one three rows back. She's not going to date me anymore but that's okay. I'm okay with that something like that but and presence but i was in such and so i remember i remember this feeling feeling about <hes> i remember feeling bad and li literally came back to a less optimal world world. You were enjoy. I mean i'm not talking about the fact that you were in like a world with little pencils patients like you're in joy. You were you're creating. You're imaginative. You were having fun and you came back to a less optimal world where you were feeling pulling bad. You were feeling stress. You were feeling embarrassed and all those worlds are inside you. I mean but you came came back to a less optimal jason. No i think i can blame my friend for all those things. Oh okay yeah that feels better yeah. No it all was in with.
